The next full moon in 2018 is just around the corner, and this one has astrologists preparing for a shift in the energies that are influencing our lives. We’ve all been guilty of referring to it at one time or another – claiming that the full moon is a time of wild energies, crazy people, and heightened emotions. While thisto be true, this energy can be incredibly positive if you are willing to embrace it. While it can be challenging to manage, it ultimately brings about and personal growth.
The first of two full moons that we will see in the month of March falls in the sign of Virgo. This will force us to face decisions and situations that we may have been. In most cases, these are situations that have held us back, trapping us in this current chapter of our lives. We may be aware, consciously choosing to avoid these topics, or we may be blissfully unaware until the problem is laid out before us. Either way, there will be no avoiding these changes.
This otherwise crazy energy is only going to be intensified by the movement of Mercury and Venus into Aries early in the month. These planets square Mars, bring an angry and bitter influence, however, they will also conjunct Neptune, balancing the Karma that will follow you around.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Throughout the course of this month, you are going to feel as though you are ready for a new chapter, marking a new beginning in your life. While the underlying trigger could be anything from a breakup to a long-distance move, you are going to feel the need for a physical change. Roll with it, the ‘new you’ will empower you with both energy and confidence, empowering you in all that you do. This can be accomplished quickly with a new haircut or color, or the purchase of a new wardrobe, or it may be a longer-term change such as the loss of a significant amount of weight. It may seem superficial, but it is about much more than how you look when you gaze into the mirror.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
You are going to experience great luck in your love life and with your relationships over the coming weeks, strengthening the connections that you have with the people in your life.

In order to move some of these relationships to the next level, you will be forced to face the little cracks or flaws that have been holding you back. Furthermore, with your creativity on overload, you will begin to experience a strong and active sexual imagination. While this can be a lot of fun, it can get out of hand for those that are used to your more grounded nature. Don’t allow this to push your partner away.

Unfortunately, while you are seeing growth in your career, this is going to come at the expense of your love life. Try to be calm and patient with your partner if you are in a relationship, understanding that they may feel ignored while you are working so hard. If you are single, try not to allow your work to take over so much time that you neglect the opportunity to meet someone new.

Create a solid budget and stick with it, but don’t be afraid to allow yourself to have a little fun from time to time. Denying yourself a little extra something will only leave you feeling resentful. The biggest lesson that you are going to learn this month is the importance to lean on the people close to you. You have an incredible circle of friends that would move heaven and earth to help you, but you need to open up and share what you need. They can’t read your mind. The sooner that you learn to be vulnerable with those that you trust, the stronger those relationships will become.
