This new month-long cycle encourages you to connect and get in touch with your most cherished goals, dreams, and ideals. You can be in demand with friends or associates, and the weeks ahead bring more sociable, experimental, and hopeful energy into your life. Mars in your sign is another signal that things are lively for you. Sharing visions with others gives you a boost, and you get more satisfaction than usual when your actions positively impact others.

You’re now paying more attention to your private world, and you tend to seek a little more intensity from life than usual. You might dive deep into your projects, relationships, and endeavors.

VirgoThe Sun moves into your partnership sector today, dear Virgo, and will stick around until March 20th. It’s a fine time to understand your relationship needs more fully. Energetically, though, this is not ideal, but you’re also gaining important perspective. You take more pride in how you get along with others and find harmony and balance in your personal environment. It may sometimes feel like others are directing your life, but to relate well with other people, a strong sense of self is vital. You need to know what you want and what you’re prepared to give. Still, you’re more willing than usual to adjust and adapt to the needs of others, and your listening skills are improved. Today, activities and learning can be very productive and invigorating.

You’re particularly good at adjusting to life’s circumstances and making small changes that help you get on track in the weeks ahead. The Sun will influence this sector until March 20th.

You’re likely to take a stronger interest in your creative and romantic pursuits, and you’re investing more of your pride and energy than usual into these areas of life. Heartfelt pursuits are in high focus now. As you leave a somewhat insular period behind, you can feel quite liberated. Today, you might seek inspiration or vitality through your experiences with others.
SagittariusThe Sun begins its transit of your family and home sector today, dear Sagittarius, where it will stay until March 20th. This transit stimulates a stronger need for activities revolving around the home, or it’s about centering yourself and get in better touch with your fundamental needs and wants. It’s a time for enjoying quieter and perhaps emotionally safer activities. You’re transitioning into a more comfortable phase, when familiarity tends to win over variety, although you’ll still be active on a mental/social level, just less so.

Today, with the Moon in your solar sixth house meeting Mars there, getting things done helps free up your mind.
CapricornThe Sun moves into your communications sector for a month-long stay, dear Capricorn. In the weeks ahead, you crave more connection with the world around you. Your curiosity is bigger than usual, and your need for mental stimulation motivates a lot that you do. You might frequently be on the go, even if this is figuratively speaking, and that while you’re not always focused and concentrating, you’re branching out and learning a lot in the process. You may be motivated to express yourself more clearly in your communications and more excited to share your ideas and opinions. This can be a busy period when daily life demands a lot from you and you’re putting your feelers out, gathering intel. Transits today bring desires and passions to the surface. There can be extra sizzle in a love relationship or excitement in your creative world.
AquariusThe Sun moves into your resources sector where it will stay until March 20th, dear Aquarius, and life is about settling in and making yourself both comfortable and secure. The weeks ahead are good for taking charge of your finances and valuables, but it’s also a unique period for recognizing your own value. Working on honing natural talents or drawing upon them to advance your goals is favored now. The focus is on building and laying down firm foundations. You’re taking stock of what you have and need. This month-long transit encourages patience and thinking in the long term.

PiscesThe Sun moves into your sign today, dear Pisces, and will stick around until March 20th. In the coming weeks, you can feel quite independent, and you’re quick to take the initiative. You’re interested in putting yourself out there, and you might play with a new look, style, or image. You’re more decisive and reactive. You hold the power to make resolutions and changes that truly improve your life. You’ve spent many days contemplative and perhaps in the background in significant ways, and while enlightening, the motivation to get up and go may have been lacking. You are regaining your initiative now. Breaking with the past in some way right now is appropriate with the Moon’s alignment to Mars today, and the Sun freshly in your sign.
