Pisces

February 20 – March 20

Professional progress boosts your confidence in March. With the sun revitalising your personal sector and powerful Pluto influencing your VIP zone, your career prospects are on the up-and-up. A promotion, pay rise or opportunity to make your mark demands extra vitality, so make sure you’re fighting fit and ready to impress. Start your day with a healthy breakfast. Include good fats to keep your brain functioning at its peak and your memory laser sharp.

Day to thrive: March 15

Aries

(March 21 – April 20)

The days preceding your birthday may be a time of lower resistance and decreased energy, so take this time to slow down, recharge and rejig your intentions for the upcoming year.

Day to thrive: March 20

Taurus

(April 21 – May 21)

As the sun enters your sector of recuperation, you’re more inclined to wind things down than begin new ventures or start-ups. Focus on rebuilding your reserves, both mentally and physically. Each day, aim to do something just for yourself. You’re an earth sign, so connecting with nature can be a wonderful way to revitalise.

Day to thrive: March 5

Gemini

(May 22 – June 22)

There’s a growing body of evidence proving that practising gratitude can boost your immune system, improve sleep and heighten confidence. Wherever you place your attention, will magnify tenfold — you don’t have to ignore your problems, but emphasising the positives in your life is bound to invite more of the same.

Day to thrive: March 10

Cancer

(June 23 – July 23)

As one of the most caring signs of the zodiac, you find great satisfaction and purpose in helping others. This month’s full moon asks you to support a bestie or a family member that’s battling a health hurdle or an emotional challenge. Although you needn’t solve their problem, being present in their hour of need means the world to them.

Day to thrive: March 23

Leo

(July 24 – August 23)

This month’s new moon lifts a financial weight off your shoulders. What was previously foggy now becomes more evident as the clouds dissipate, revealing new ways to grow your wealth. Consult with a financial adviser or a trusted business-savvy friend to help you develop a concise and measurable strategy for your finances.

Day to thrive: March 24

Virgo

(August 24 – September 23)

This month, the moon is in your sign, offering a fantastic opportunity to improve your physical wellbeing — particularly your digestive tract. A good way to eliminate sluggishness is to eat plenty of fibre-rich foods. Increasing your fruit and veg intake should do the trick, and drink more water, too.

Day to thrive: March 20

Libra

(September 24 – October 23)

Fanning the flames of creativity nourishes your soul. While it would be nice, monetising your gift is not crucial as doing something simply because it brings you joy will create a ripple effect of happy, feel-good hormones that’ll help shape a healthier you. So put pen to paper, mould a masterpiece or dance like no-one’s watching.

Day to thrive: March 4

Scorpio

(October 24 – November 22)

Thanks to Saturn, you could be forced to convalesce at home. If you’re feeling under the weather, take a sickie minus the guilt. Pushing yourself beyond your limitations isn’t smart and will only prolong whatever is weighing you down. Put your feet up for a day or two, sip on nourishing bone broths and you’ll be back in full force in no time.

Day to thrive: March 31

Sagittarius

(November 23 – December 21)

Saturn, the tough taskmaster, demands you discipline your mind. You’ve got this, Saggie! Align your thoughts with your highest potential and watch your dreams come true. Having trouble keeping negativity at bay? Sign up for a course in meditation, breathwork or mindfulness to help you to keep your eye on the prize.

Day to thrive: March 22

Capricorn

(December 22 – January 20)

Sexy Mars’ meet-up with Jupiter inspires you to revamp your style. Update your workout wardrobe by tossing out old, worn items and investing in quality activewear that’ll motivate you to perform at your best. Take pride in how you present yourself, Capricorn, because when you look good, you feel good, too.

Day to thrive: March 20

Aquarius

(January 21 – February 19)

Your waistline may expand now that Jupiter, the planet of growth, is in cahoots with transformative Pluto. Instead of fad diets, sort out your bedtime routine as proper sleeping habits assist the body in maintaining a healthy weight. Among other tricks, try picking up a book rather than your phone before bed.
