Cosmic Views – by Linda Joyce

March, 2020
This month continues to bring change. I know life has been full of disruptions which pushed you out of your safety zone and helped you see something new. What lies ahead is greater clarity on who you are and what you want from life. It’s not easy to turn within and look at yourself, but that’s what needs to happen. With four planets in Capricorn until the 23rd, the emphasis is on structure and goals. It’s a good possibility that you’re not asking for enough. Perhaps you don’t feel worthy to have what you really want. Saturn enters Aquarius on the 23rd and awakens in you your destiny. What are you here to accomplish? How can you give back or make a difference in your world? The last time Saturn was in Aquarius was 1991. Whatever challenges you had then, hopefully, they are resolved. Don’t make the same mistakes. Mercury goes direct on March 10th and things begin to move forward without resistance. New ideas can now take root. The full moon on the 9th in Virgo reveals your deepest purpose and makes you aware of why you’re doing what you’re doing. If you’ve been avoiding your truth, you have a chance to correct it. The new moon on the 24th in Aries is a chance for a new beginning within yourself. It’s important to make adjustments and don’t be afraid of the unknown. It’s waiting for you to shape it into what you want it to be.

Aries (March 21st – April 20th)
This month begins with your ruler, Mars in trine to Uranus. You’re ready for excitement and change. There is a deep desire for something new, whether it’s a challenge in your career or a new experience. Mars is conjunct Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn this month and it will activate your 10th house of career. If you’re looking for a new job, it shouldn’t take long to find one. Never forget, it’s where you put your energy that gets results. Saturn leaves your 10th house on the 23rd and enters Aquarius, ruler of your house of friends. You’re about to find out who really has your back and who doesn’t. The blessing of Saturn is honesty and truth. You’ll see it whether you want to or not. Don’t be surprised if an older person comes into your life and offers you wisdom. Don’t say no, what they have to share will be helpful. Mercury goes direct on March 10th and things begin to work without complications and delays. If you’ve had a new idea that’s been on hold, it begins to move forward. The full moon on the 9th in Virgo brings work issues and perhaps your schedule to your attention. Whatever hasn’t been in your way will be removed or improved. The new moon is in your sign on the 24th, so make a wish — you might just get it. If you’re in a relationship, things are a little crazy, your partner is going through positive changes that make him or her more challenging to reach. Have patience. If you’re single, it’s a good time to meet some outrageous new people, and experience relationships in a new way.

Taurus (April 21st – May 20th)
It’s not an easy time for Taurus, with Uranus in their sign. You love to create chaos, but only when you create it – not when you have to cope with it from others. Well, get used to it, Uranus is very good at turning things upside down. It’s the only way to see the other side. At the beginning of the month, your emotions may be unsettled. Don’t panic, slow down and think things through. A little proper communication can settle the problem. Stop being afraid of the truth. With Mars in square to Venus, your ruler, your anger can be a problem. Probably because your ego is in the way. Saturn enters Aquarius on the 23rd and brings stability to your hard work as well as a reward. If you want to get ahead and stay there, keep advancing one sure foot at a time. In other words, don’t be in a hurry. Mercury goes direct on the 10th and obstacles melt away. Suddenly, anything seems possible. The Sun conjunct Neptune can keep you in your fantasies, which is fine if all you need is a temporary escape. However, if you stay there too long you’ll lose time and opportunity. There are four planets in your 9th house of ideals. It’s time to lift yourself up and see the world from a greater perspective. Don’t be afraid to dream, to believe that you can do whatever you put your mind to because you can. Faith in oneself is what parts the sea, and makes the impossible possible. The full moon in Virgo on the 9th brings your attention to your strengths. It’s time to own your power. Speak up and take a stand. Ask questions, but don’t be complacent. It gets you nowhere. If you’re in a relationship, your partner is feeling his or her power, give them support and step back. If you’re single, it’s a time when you feel trapped, so the best you can ask for now is good company.

Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)
As a Gemini, you have been pushed to grow and change by seeing where you’re stuck and what needs to happen. When Saturn enters Aquarius on the 23rd, you feel the need to examine your ideals. What inspires you? What lifts you up out of your responsibilities and allows your spirit to fly? This invisible source of strength is important. If you’re giving love and not receiving it, then you will realize things have to change. Jupiter in your 8th house conjunct Pluto brings strength to the table and the desire to tackle all opposition. The Sun and Neptune in Pisces in your 10th house helps you find a clear path, one that will help you fulfill your dreams. Reach for the stars and you’ll enjoy the journey. It’s not so much the end result, but how you meet your challenges and overcome them. Mercury goes direct on the 10th and the obstacles on your path begin to dissolve or be resolved. New ideas move forward. The full moon on the 9th in Virgo brings issues around the home to ahead. Where have you been holding back? What needs to be taken care of? Venus conjunct Uranus creates excitement and change. There are things beyond your control and to handle them you need faith. Don’t be afraid to accept help, you won’t regret it. If you’re in a relationship, your partner is more stubborn than usual. They’re finding it difficult to let go. If you’re single, it’s a great time to see what and who makes you happy. Pay attention to the information, it will save you a lot of heartaches.

Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)
Cancers are sensitive souls and yet they know how to block their emotions as well as their sensitivity when necessary. Whatever you do, try to stay flexible when it comes to expressing yourself. As the sign of creativity, you have the ability to experience life from many points of view – show others your versatility. With four planets in Capricorn and your 7th house, relationships are the focus this month. Either you’ve met someone that interests you, or someone has pushed your obsessive button and you have trouble regaining your balance. Change is never easy for a Cancer, partially because your emotions are seldom under control. What you seek is solitude, safety, and stability. Learn to accept what is and get your sense of stability from thoughts and faith in yourself. You need to live at the center of your world and trust your intuition. When you do, life works. Mercury goes direct on the 10th and things begin to move without distractions. Those new ideas finally get support. With Venus conjunct Uranus, friendships may be an issue. Those close to you are struggling and they may reach out for comfort and support. Don’t try and save anyone, but do share your truth. The full moon this month in Virgo sets off your 9th house, communication is your focus. How are you expressing your ideas and goals? Look at how you present them to others. Know who you’re trying to convince and organize your thoughts. The New Moon in Aries on the 24th activates your 10th house of career. Don’t ignore new ideas. One may be important. If you’re in a relationship, things are hectic and challenging. Just be present. If you’re single, step back and let things unravel. If you have distance, you’ll make the right choices and someone will be impressed.

Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)
Leos tend to focus on work, but not always for the right reason. Either you actually have a lot on your plate or you’re avoiding something. You’re good at keeping others and things at an arm’s length when you don’t want to face the truth. Whatever your reason, you’ll be busy. The Sun and Neptune in Pisces in your 8th house of power and transformation indicates you’ve been under pressure to open up to greater emotional fulfillment. If that’s something you’ve been avoiding, then you won’t advance spiritually or in matters of the heart. I know it requires you to let go of the control and that’s a lot easier than you think. Love is a give-and-take proposition. It doesn’t work one way. Not a comfortable position for the sign of the Lion. Mars conjunct Jupiter gives you the energy to overcome whatever you feel is a priority. Venus and Uranus in Taurus in the 6th house of work bring excitement and new ways to get the job done. You want things more streamlined, but transitions throw you off-center – once again it’s a control issue. Mercury goes direct on the 10th and problems get resolved. It’s time to move forward with new ideas. The full moon on the 9th in Virgo shines a light on your finances. You’ve been doing well and now you have to decide what to do with your earnings. Do you spend or save – always a difficult choice for a Leo who values both options. If you’re in a relationship, your partner is breaking new ground and he or she needs your support. If you’re not in a relationship, you may meet someone either around or because of your work. Yes, it’s possible, particularly this month.

Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)
Virgos are the organizers of the universe and this month your focus is on children or a project. It will be important to you to advance your influence when it comes to your work. You are looked upon as intelligent and strong, but some also see you as stubborn and uncompromising. It may be partially true, primarily because you don’t try to change their opinion. How others see you has a strong influence on how they treat you. Don’t dismiss it. Jupiter and Mars in your 5th house give you an extra dose of energy to get your work done – and also to play. You love to do both, so make sure you find a balance. The middle position gives you the most options. With the Sun and Neptune in your 7th house of relationships, be careful of advice you receive, it may be sugar-coated. Others can tell you only want to hear what you want to hear but then the truth gets lost. Without trust, there is nothing to rely on. Mercury goes direct on the 10th and problems and delays get resolved. Saturn enters Aquarius on the 23rd and begins to make changes in your work schedule and how you deal with others. It’s time to open yourself up to new experiences and don’t over-protect yourself. The full moon on the 9th is in your sign, so pay attention to the message that is delivered. It’s something you haven’t wanted to look at, even though there really isn’t a problem with what you’re avoiding. If you’re in a relationship, your partner is idealistic and listening to others more than they should. If you’re single, it’s a good time for a romantic encounter, but I’m not sure how much you can rely on it.

Libra (September 23rd – October 22nd)
Libras gravitate toward peace and harmony, but this month you’re looking for excitement and change. That’s a good thing. Nothing can stay the same forever. You either grow or shrink, the choice is up to you. You know that there are things that need more insight and work. Don’t put them aside any longer. A little attention goes a long way. With four planets in Capricorn in your 4th house, there’s tension around the home. You’ve either got a lot going on with whomever you share your space with, or you’re making changes by choice. When Saturn leaves Capricorn and enters Aquarius on the 23rd, you begin to shift your attention from family to authority. Are you in charge of your own life? Who is demanding more time than they should get? It’s time to own your power and not let others make decisions you should be making. Mercury goes direct on March 10th and new ideas begin to move forward and get attention. No more endless obstacles. It’s time to get things done. Neptune and the Sun in Pisces enhance your intuition and give a warm glow to whatever you focus on. Things get done. The full moon in Virgo on the 23rd brings a surprise. Get ready for something new. Chances are it won’t be difficult and you may even enjoy it. If you’re in a relationship, the New Moon is happening in your house of partnerships. You’ve got a chance to start fresh and make important changes. If you’re single, change is inevitable and if you want to meet someone you will. The person that attracts you may be different than who you’ve dated in the past. You’re beginning to get turned on by something new.

Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)
Scorpios keep things to themselves. It’s a challenge to get them to open up about what’s really important. However, with four planets in your 3rd house of communication, you’re in a position to change that – at least this month. Mars and Jupiter are pushing you to take a stand on an idea or a project you’re excited about. When you do speak, you make sense, so don’t hesitate to open up and share your wisdom and knowledge with others – they’ll listen. With the Sun and Neptune in Pisces in your 5th house, you’re idealistic about where you’re going and what you want to accomplish. There will be challenges along the way, but that’s never stopped you. You are meant to take more responsibility for your passions now, so it’s okay to overdo. And no matter what happens, hold on to the truth. It’s the only thing you can truly count on. Mercury goes direct on the 10th and new ideas move forward. The obstacles of the last few weeks are behind you. Saturn enters Aquarius on the 23rd and your home life gets a critical examination. Either you want to change the furniture or structure of your house – or perhaps even move. Another possibility is that the people who live in your space are changing their lives and it affects how you interact and live together in some way. The full moon on March 9th brings your attention to friends and humanitarian efforts. You have a need to make a difference in the world around you, so pay attention to those random thoughts. They’re messages from above. If you’re in a relationship, your partner is making changes and he or she doesn’t feel settled. Don’t overthink it. If you’re single, it’s a good time to date new and different people. You’re seeking something you haven’t had in the past.

Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)
Sagittarians are the travelers of the universe, and if you haven’t been traveling, you’re dreaming about a trip to some faraway place. When you enter worlds that are different than what you’re used to, you get excited. Seeing how others live opens your mind and heart to new possibilities. With four planets in your house of finance, this is a good month for making money. However, do be careful of where you invest and who you invest with. Change is on the horizon and nothing is going to stay stable for long. It’s just a bumpy ride, but you’ll get to the finish line on time. With the Sun and Neptune in your 4th house, there is a need to be around family and those that make you feel comfortable. In life, you need faith to feel secure. You can’t really rely on others because they don’t think the same way you do. On the 10th, Mercury goes direct and things begin to advance without complication. How great is that? It gives you peace of mind. The full moon on the 9th in Virgo, helps you advance your career. Opportunity may appear from nowhere. Saturn leaves Capricorn and enters Aquarius on the 23rd, activating your 3rd house of communication and adventure. You’re about to start down a new path and it’s exciting. Don’t hold back your enthusiasm. If you’re in a relationship, things will get you back on track when Mercury goes direct on the 10th. Your partner has been coping with a lot of challenges, but it’s about to end. If you’re single, it’s a great time to open yourself up to what your soul is longing for. Don’t be afraid to change. Listen to your spirit or intuition, it has the answers and it will show you the way to love.

Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)
Capricorns hold such an important position in the journey of life. Your sign sits at the top of the mountain and this position gives you great vision. You can see where you came from, and just as important, where you’re going. What is necessary to have is faith. When a Capricorn has confidence, they’re invincible. With four planets in your sign, you’ve got a lot on your plate. To say you’ll be busy trying to organize your life is an understatement. The full moon in Virgo on the 9th brings your ideals into play and helps you sort out what’s really important. Mercury goes direct on the 10th and new ideas begin to advance. No more unnecessary delays. With the Sun and Neptune conjunct in Pisces, you’re idealistic and positive about what’s happening. You’ve risen above the issues that have held you back and you’re looking at solutions. You’re willing to make things work, at least until things find their proper place. Venus and Uranus bring change to your goals and how you handle authority. It’s time to take control and organize whatever’s happening. The people who are close, or those that work for you, need your guidance and authority. If you give it, life will be easier. Saturn moves out of Capricorn on the 23rd and things seem lighter and finances become the focus. With Saturn out of your sign, you will be less judgmental toward yourself and others. It’s a good time to save money. If you’re in a relationship, your partner is emotional. There is a lot of change in his or her life, so be strong, but have patience. If you’re single, wait for things to settle down. Date for a distraction, not something serious. Unless of course you just happen to meet the right one.

Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)
Aquarius is the sign of freedom, but with Saturn about to enter your sign on the 23rd things are about to change. It’s time to add limits and boundaries to what you do and what others expect of you. Saturn can be your best friend if you don’t mind looking at the truth. You’ve been going through a period where so much of what has happened is beyond your control. One of your best qualities is your adaptability. It allows you to make things happen, even when there’s not a lot available. Venus and Uranus are conjunct, and there’s a yearning for excitement, not just sanity. Keep pushing the unimportant aside and get things done. Mercury goes direct on the 10th and obstacles began to disappear. It’s your chance to get ahead instead of working extra hard for what doesn’t really matter. With the Sun and Neptune in Pisces in your second house, you may find that making more money becomes possible. You’re attracting opportunity, and with your ability to adjust quickly, you can take advantage of sudden changes. The full moon in Virgo, or your 8th house, put a new light on old issues. It’s always fun to learn something new that helps you let go and move forward. The new moon in your 3rd house of communication may give you an opportunity to learn from someone close to you. It will add to your talents. If you’re in a relationship, your partner is idealistic and dreaming of new possibilities. It’s actually a good thing. If you’re single, it’s a time when love is romantic, but not realistic, but that can be fun as long as you recognize it for what it is.

Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)
Pisces is always challenging because the only thing that’s certain is what you believe to be true. It’s important for you to focus on yourself and who you are and where you’re going. If you listen to others, you’re going to get lost along the way. The world revolves around you, so own it. With the Sun and Neptune in your sign, you’re full of hope and possibilities. Mercury is going direct on the 10th and things begin to move forward, especially new ideas. With four planets in your 11th house, friendships or who you know is suddenly important. You realize that getting ahead in this world has a lot to do with who you know and not just what you do. Pay attention to both. With Saturn moving out of Capricorn and into Aquarius on the 23rd, you may feel restricted or at least the need to answer to yourself for your choices. Not a bad thing for a Pisces who can easily get lost in indecision. You feel the need for structure and hopefully, you’ll give it to yourself by embracing the little word “no.” It’s time to make a commitment to your goals. With Venus and Uranus conjunct in Taurus, change is happening around you and in you. Acknowledge it. Don’t close your eyes. This is your chance to advance and go for your dreams. Jupiter, the ruler of your 10th house of career will be in Capricorn for one year. Friends are useful and important, so get out and make a few new ones. If you’re in a relationship, the full moon in your house of relationships will bring an old issue to a head. Don’t ignore it. Just be honest and hold your ground. If you’re single, you could meet someone new around the 9th. Keep your eyes open.
