March 2015 will be book-ended by two lovely opportunities and, sandwiched in between, there will be a key turning point suggested by the solar eclipse on the 20th.

This month is all about the fruition of long-term goals which have been in the making for the past two to three years. And you’ll get the chance to get ahead quickly, too, as Mars in Aries will certainly speed things along, especially for cardinal signs Aries, Libra, Capricorn, and Cancer.

If a key decision or an obstacle presents itself, consider it as a gateway to your path forward, and rise to the challenge. The Full Moon in Virgo on the 6th will help to propel you toward your ideal outcome, especially if you’re careful with details; be practical and hands-on. Above all, avoid a ‘laissez-faire’ attitude, as this could open the floodgates to deep waters, which may be hard to exit later in the year.

If, around the Full Moon, you feel particularly vulnerable or sensitive, pace yourself and think big-picture; avoid pandering to fears or insecurities (especially Pisces, Virgos and Aries). You’ll manage to get ahead, especially with health and work matters early in March, again especially Pisces, Virgos and Aries, and also Librans. It’s a great month to look at what you’ve achieved over the past few years, and to realise that, right now, you will get the opportunity either to put the icing on the cake of projects which are finally materialising; or, you’ll get one more chance to create the circumstances you wish to have in your life.

March will bring you the opportunity to step into a fresh paradigm: don’t miss it!
