This is always a busy time of year for you or at least the first three weeks of April usually are but this year while that might still be the case, it might be that it is more about tying up loose ends. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of April in your work sector and with Venus here until 15th April and Mercury from 4th April to 19th April, this is a short, sharp period that gives you the resources to get things done. While it is good to have everything in the same place at the same time, in any other year this could have left you with little time to get up to speed, let alone accomplish all that you need to.
However, this isn't any other year and it was less than three months ago that Mars wrapped up a nearly seven month visit, his longest in 32 years. Until the Sun leaves on 20th April it is less about starting from scratch and more about finishing what you began in 2020, with just a few tweaks required instead of reinventing the wheel. It is once the planets leave that they will return to your relationship sector, turning their attention onto your relationships as they will always do at this time of year. It starts with Venus, the planet of love's return on 15th April, followed by Mercury, the planet of communication's return on 19th April and then the Sun's return on 20th April.
As was the case on the job front, Mars' recent visit will also give them a head start here as well. This time, just six weeks separate Mars' departure from your relationship sector last month and Venus' return on 15th April. Meanwhile, Mars is still doing this, forging a path for the other planets to follow. Mars will spend until 23rd April in your financial sector, setting things in motion for the Sun, Mercury and Venus to pick up next month. This time, just 11 days will separate Mars' departure and Mercury's return early next month. It is then that Mars will return to an adventurous part of your chart and you guessed it, once again he will be setting things up for the planets following in his footsteps except this time, he will still be here when they return.

March is always a month when a balance between work and play becomes a priority. Not just because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of March in a playful part of your chart before returning to your busy work sector but because there is never a clear cut line between the two. Venus and Mercury travel with the Sun but not to the same timetable, so more often than not they will be ahead or behind, keeping them active on both sides of the fence at the same time. In addition, because Neptune is in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart from 2012 to 2026 and the dwarf planet Eris has been in your work sector for decades, there is always an underlying competition between the two.
Having the Sun and the faster moving planets move through only highlights an ongoing battle to find and maintain a balance between work and play. To begin with, the Sun is putting both the solar spotlight and his full weight behind making the most of his time in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart. As the planet of love, Venus is working to make these the most fun weeks of any year and for some, the most romantically charged. While the Sun will leave and return to your work sector on 20th March and Venus on 22nd March, Mercury will return on 16th March to keep the momentum going.
Until then, Mercury will be working to make the most of the final weeks of what should have been a 14 to 15 day visit to your home and family sector. Instead, while he returned in the New Year a retrograde phase has kept Mercury here during Jupiter and Saturn's early months, giving you time to work with his intellectually savvy and articulate edge to keep your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open. Meanwhile, Mars is also on the move this month, leaving your relationship sector on 4th March and turning his attention and your passions, drive, competitive and warrior spirit onto your financial situation and money matters.
