Horoscopes for March 23:

Astrologer Aria Gmitter of Your Tango gives her love forecast, writing: “Venus is in Aries, so there’s lots of fight in the area of love if couples aren’t careful. On Tuesday, Mercury, the communication planet will square Mars and this can bring up some tense conversations – perhaps over nothing. Better to think first before assuming anything and always call time out if the situation feels like a break would help.”

Astrologer Patrick Arundell writes: “The Moon in Cancer opposes powerbroker Pluto in Capricorn exposing the sensitive underbelly of a situation and perhaps leaving us vulnerable. Our instinct may be to shield ourselves, but by fully embracing our feelings we can emerge stronger and wiser.”

Astrologer Lynn Hayes of Astrodynamics examines the meaning of Mercury square Mars. Hayes writes: “the hunger for learning is intense under that aspect; however, Gemini and Pisces are both mutable signs which are adaptable, but not always very focused. You may be flooded with ideas today, and lots of thoughts about things to do and how to do them, but don’t be surprised if you flounder and find it difficult to actually take a step or find a clear path forward.”

Astrologer Nadia Gilchrist of Ruby Slipper Astrology explores the implications of Mercury in Pisces square Mars in Gemini. Gilchrist writes: “Attempts to nail down a series of facts will come across as impatient and allowing information to shift will appear frustratingly vague…You can’t force the conversation- the harder you push the more quickly an answer (or person) will slide out of view. But this is also not the time to ignore the tension…A conflict must be resolved or a source of anxiety dealt with.”
