Scorpio Horoscope for March 2009
By Susan Miller
You are in a very exciting phase, where almost everything in your life is changing for the better. It will take a few more months before you will be able to fully enjoy your new way of life, but you've made a good start, and the year is still so new. As far back as the end of January, when the solar eclipse came by, you began to think about your home. You will still have until March 14 to make more changes there if you like.
Mars, your secondary ruler, will be moving in a strong, swift orbit through your home sector and that's good news for you, for it means you can make exceptional progress. Mars' energy is considered one of the best of all to have when planning dramatic change. Mars won't be back to this part of your chart until January 2011, so while you have him acting as butler to all your home-related needs, take full advantage.
You may be considering a move or planning an upgrade to your present surroundings. Or you may simply want to streamline your surroundings by eliminating clutter and by reorganizing your space. If you need to move to a new address and have been unable to find the right space, the first two weeks of March are when you'd most likely find one that you love. Keep looking!
Your career will also continue to be a big focus, but near March 8, when Saturn will conjunct the Sun, you may become frustrated because you aren't moving fast enough. There seems to be no particular reason why this might come up, so it could be triggered by something small.
Saturn may bring an unfairly harsh criticism from someone close, for example, and on this day it would make you sensitive and upset. In truth, this aspect is certainly a meeting of fire (the Sun) and ice (Saturn). No matter what triggers your frustration, the real reason may be because you're tired - certainly not in the right frame of mind to assess your career progress. Be sure to get lots of rest near this date, because if you don't, you are likely to view the world through a dark filter, for no reason. You will feel better in a few days.
Last month, on February 9, there was an eclipse that fell in your career sector, a sign your career was about to undergo enormous changes in the coming six months. If you didn't see any news or developments within four days of February 9, you might hear something this month, on or near March 9. This is because some lunar eclipses deliver their news one month to the day later, plus or minus four days.
Life can be very mysterious. One day we may be thinking, "Oh gee, nothing is right with my life!" but then something happens out of the blue to restore our faith. If there is anything I have learned, it is that the world does not run on our timetables, but its own. Sometimes events don't happen when we need them to, but that doesn't mean they won't. Sometimes the good work we have put out there has to cook a little, so have patience.
The life you are living today was seeded by actions you took a while back, six months ago or more, so if you've been working hard toward your goal (and what Scorpio does not?) you will eventually get your chance at the position you want so dearly. The eclipses this year are working to help you - in fact, one is due in early August. After that, Mars will jump in to help your career too, from mid-October 2009 through mid-2010.
Let's go back to March now and study the possible effects of the full moon of March 10. At that time your attention may be drawn to a female friend who is struggling under serious circumstances and who may need your help. Be there for her, dear Scorpio. Her problem would be real and she would appreciate your willingness to help her sort things out.
There are other possible messages of this full moon March 10. This full moon may find you upset with a friend over a sudden or strange incident, and depending on what you learn, you may want to break things off with this friend for good. Let's hope this is not how things work out, for betrayal is something a Scorpio does not suffer kindly.
Although these possible manifestations sound ominous, don't panic because there will be still other types of news that could come up. You may run for office in an organization you belong to, and even though you never expected to win, you do! The eleventh house of friendship also rules clubs, charities, and communities and the responsibilities we take on in those groups, so assuming a new position within a group is a very real possibility.
This full moon falls close to Saturn, the planet of the lessons we learn and responsibilities we take on in life. The full moon will also oppose Uranus, planet of sudden and completely unexpected developments. This sets up a rather complex set of pressures. Because it will be a full moon, it will bring information to light and a matter to full culmination. Often the job of a full moon is to cleanse a situation and to reveal certain truths, if there are any to reveal. Other times full moons will bring opportunities.
Here is the mitigating news: This full moon will be in Virgo, an earth sign that blends beautifully with your Scorpio water sign element. If you were born on November 13 or within five days of this date, this full moon will touch you more than most, and protect you more than most, too.
Now let's look at romance, for there will be lots for you to be excited about.
On March 14, Mars will move into the area of your chart ruling true love and brilliantly light it until April 22. This is great news, for this means if you are single, you will finally get a chance to meet a romantic partner who is right for you.
Your very best day for a first date, or to circulate in the hopes of meeting someone special, will be March 19, when Mars will meet your other ruling planet, Pluto. Most signs only have one ruling planet, not two, and you always do well when both are in sync. Both planets will be in superb communication this month, so you should feel very alive and vibrant, especially in social settings.
You may be traveling a short distance on or near March 19, and if so, good, for travel will increase your chances of meeting someone. If you can't go out of town, simply doing errands all around town could be enough to make that fateful meeting occur.
There is one little tricky part of the month, and that involves Venus, which is about to retrograde from March 6 to April 17. Venus rarely goes out of phase, but fortunately, this will only be retrograde for six weeks. Venus retrograde will affect you more if you are a Scorpio who is currently married or in a very serious, long-term, established relationship because Venus rules your seventh house of marriage and partnerships.
If you are together but not fully committed, you may have a change of heart about your partner or choose to slow down a new relationship that has moved forward a bit too quickly. Or, if you have been together a long time, you may discuss an old wound or problem that has troubled you or your partner for quite a while and has prevented deeper love from flourishing. If there is, use this time now to find closure.
Because Venus retrograde is a time of looking back, it is not the time to get engaged or married, for a committed relationship "born" during this time would not likely enjoy the full flowering of love in the future. In astrology, the date you choose to make an initiation matters, for it sets the birth of that endeavor for the whole length of the life of that endeavor. A wedding is the birth of your time together, hopefully forever, so you will want Venus, the planet of love, to be strong.
As an aside, if you were starting a partnership for business, it would still not be wise to form it during the retrograde. Venus also rules profits, which would be constricted for the life of that business venture.
Venus retrograde is not a time to spend on luxuries but rather to do economical activities, so for now, keep things light and simple. When Venus is retrograde, Venus is in a weak state, which will be the case from March 6 and April 17.
This is not the time to give a lavish party or to spend a large amount of money for entertainment, four-star dining, or an extravagant vacation, as you would not get the pleasure you'd expect from your expenditure.
Venus rules beauty and embellishment too, so avoid buying expensive jewelry, clothes, perfume, or makeup. Don't experiment with your hair during these phases, and never schedule plastic surgery during a Venus retrograde phase, no matter how famous your doctor may be! All these areas seem to apply to women, but in truth apply to readers of either gender. My male readers should make note of this trend, too. Venus will retrograde from March 6 and April 17.
Now let's turn to the new moon, to appear on March 26. At this time, you may get a new and very enterprising assignment. With Venus, Mercury, the new moon, and the Sun in Aries, it would cast you in the role of pathfinder and allow you to explore a whole realm new to you. The new assignment might be an entrepreneurial one, as four planets will stack up in Aries, the sign of new ventures.
The problem with the opportunities brought by this new moon is that Pluto will be in very angry angle to the new moon, Sun, Venus, and Mercury, all at once. Pluto will be based in a house ruling agreements, so you may have a delay while you wait for paperwork to catch up, agree on a financial matter, or clear up a clause in the contract. If you are in negotiation now, you may feel the other party's stance will be so one-sided that you will find it nearly impossible to find an area of compromise.
关于新月带来的这个机会的问题是冥王星将同时与新月，太阳，金星，水星呈劣角（angry angle貌似这样翻译= =）。冥王星将处于你裁决问题的那一宫（貌似…），所以当你在等待书面文件，达成账务问题或是理清合同条款的时候都将会出现延迟状态。如果你现在正在商谈，或许你会发现对方的态度非常一边倒以至于你感觉根本不可能找到一个让对方妥协的领域。
Pluto is your ruler, and with this planet doing battle with so many other planets, you may feel thwarted in your attempts to move forward. If the other side is as stubborn and all-powerful as your chart suggests, at some point you may have to either walk away or accept and swallow the other party's demands. See what develops - you can decide what to do later.
This same new moon will encourage an interest in fitness and health too, and will make it a good time to begin exercising. Planets in courageous, enthusiastic Aries will give you the impetus to start a strenuous, energetic fitness routine. However, with Pluto acting in such a cross way, it will be important not to take on more that you can handle - stay realistic.
You might want to hire a trainer who can push you, but hopefully not so much that you become injured. Of course, trainers are expensive, so if you can't afford one, join a class where you can ask questions of the instructor as you go along. It is always wise to exercise, so use this new moon's energy to try something new. Just don't get compulsive!
Use the strong energies of Mars to help you settle a home-related goal. If you need to move, you may have found terrific options in February, but if not, you will still have superb help from Mars to allow you to find options until March 14.
The month starts out with a somber aspect, March 8, when Saturn will oppose the Sun. This will be a Sunday, but nevertheless, you may be overcome with feelings of inadequacy because you feel you aren't moving fast enough in your career. Or you may be facing a difficult career challenge that would seem overwhelming. If someone delivers a criticism of you on this day or in days surrounding this day, try to take the best from what is said, but don't become crushed by it. You are closer to victory than you might assume.
这个月的开始似乎不太好, 3月8号, 土星与太阳成负相(原文oppose,不太清楚专业名词是啥).这是个周日,你可能会感觉自己不够好.因为你认为你在事业上的进展并不快. 或者你会面对一个事业上的巨大的挑战,以至于你认为它无法征服.如果有人在这一天,或这天前后对你有所评论的话,应该多多吸取一些有用的教训,但不要被它所压坏.你其实离成功比你想象还要近,
In fact, if you haven't had any evidence of a career breakthrough yet, it may come any minute, as soon as March 9 plus or minus four days, as the eclipse of last month, February 9, may assert itself now, one month later.
Later you will have more help from another eclipse in August and the coming position of Mars that will be in place from October 2009 through mid-2010. You have so much to look forward to!
A friend will take your full focus at the full moon, March 10 plus or minus four days, for you may hear from a female friend who needs your help because of a serious crisis she is facing. You will want to help.
Or, you may take on a position of power and responsibility in a club or community that you belong to. If so, there'll be lots to do, and you may be amazed that you even were chosen for this spot. There is one other possible manifestation, and that is that you may become very upset with a friend, so much so that you will instantly break things off. Let's hope that this last interpretation of the full moon March 10 won't apply to you, for it would upset you.
When Mars enters your house of true love on March 14, Mars will push your romantic life into high gear. If you are single and hoping for love, this development will be fantastic, because your popularity will reach new heights, and opportunities to socialize will seem to be everywhere. This phase will last from March 14 to April 22.
One of your best days for fun and love will be March 19, when Pluto and Mars will be in perfect sync.
If you are attached, you'll be more influenced by the turn of Venus retrograde, March 6 to April 17. Venus rules your sector of marriage and established partnerships, so you and your partner may revisit an old problem to find a new and better solution.
If you have been dating exclusively for a time and feel the relationship has moved too quickly, Venus in retrograde will give you a chance to slow it down long enough to think about what to do next. This would not be the time of the year to get engaged or married - Venus rules love, so you would want a strong Venus at the time you make such a massively important long-term commitment.
Venus also rules beauty, so avoid spending for lavish clothes, expensive jewelry, and other luxuries. Your purchases will not likely deliver the fun and enjoyment you expect. Most importantly, don't schedule plastic surgery during a Venus retrograde, nor have your hair radically restyled at this time. Venus is currently in Aries, ruling the head and face, and, to reiterate, will be out of phase from March 6 to April 17. If possible leave some space surrounding these dates, too.
A new work project may come up March 24, but a lack of clarity in the way it is presented to you may stall your start. Or, the paperwork that should accompany this endeavor may be held up, or a contractual detail may require much more discussion.
If you are in negotiations at this time, Pluto will be in very harsh angle to Venus, Mercury, the Sun, and new moon, which may make it nearly impossible for you to find areas of compromise. You may find the other side to be extremely difficult and self-oriented, to such a degree you may wonder if you even want to seal a deal with this person.
You can decide whether to stay or go, but if you do stay, you may have to accept conditions that you don't like but would have to accept anyway. You may do this because some of the backend rewards interest you, but it will be a tough call.
It's a great time to begin a new and vigorous exercise program, but avoid going overboard - it won't be easy! If you hire a trainer, make sure this person understands your limits and doesn't push you beyond what a doctor would consider wise.
The end of March is also a good time for medical checkups. If you feel your present practitioner isn't listening to your concerns, however, seek a second or third opinion.
At month's end, you may get a chance to try for a new job, but if so, your new job would represent a lateral move. Knowing this, you may be glad to take almost anything if you have been unhappy in your present job or if you are currently out of work.
If you prefer to seek a promotion or higher-level position, it is possible an opportunity came up near February 9, or will this month, near March 9, both strong periods for advancement. If you see nothing, wait until August through October to make your move.
Dates to note:
Attend to home and family decisions and actions while opportunities shine: March 1 to 14.
Romance for singles glitters: March 14 to April 22.
Best day for romance: March 18, and possibly (wild card, second choice) March 12.
Venus will retrograde: March 6 to April 17. Those Scorpios who are in long-term relationships will have time to focus on a long-term issue that has never been resolved. You are being given an opportunity to find closure.
金星逆行: 3.6到4.17. 处于长期恋爱关系中的天蝎们会有时间集中精力解决一些从未被解决的长期的问题. 你将会得到一个结束(恋爱关系)的机会
Avoid plastic surgery, and avoid radical changes to your appearance. Spending for luxuries like jewelry, designer clothes, perfume, or makeup should be avoided. Lavish parties and vacations are best scheduled for after the retrograde is over. Do not become engaged or married during this phase if possible.
避免整形手术,避免过分地改变你的外貌. 不应该买奢侈品,如珠宝.名牌服装.香水.或化妆品...奢侈浪费的party和假期最好安排在逆行期之后. 如果可能的话不要在这段时间内和某人开始恋爱关系或是结婚.
You may encounter a snag or paperwork delay in regard to a new work-related project after March 24 due to problems from Pluto. These delays may not fully clear up for months.
Renew your efforts to get fit and strong from March 24 plus two weeks. Avoid overdoing, however, and if your trainer is too pushy, switch to another.
