Sunny Days: 17, 19
Flowering Days: 22, 25
Mars is in Scorpio until March 5th, which means you will be stronger but at the same time more attracted to crisis. Watch out for the cat, whose potent feline energy may effect you during a moment of instability ‘she ‘ll chew up your flowers and blow chunks in your soil.
Blight Days: 7, 10, 24
Taurus, Taurus, Taurus ‘a part of you which you thought had wilted long ago will spring forth again with a renewed vitality. Now is the time to shed your pale, brown leaves. Make a courageous move ‘pruning shears are your friend, my friend.

You will start to see your social life pick up when your caregiver decides to try talking to you because she heard that ‘s good for plants.

Aphid Days: 10, 11
Mildew Days: 23
Last year was a bit of a lazy one for you, dear Libra, but now is the time to flower. Start today. The natal Sun is in conjunct Pluto, so it may be slow going at first, but your objectives are true. With any luck, it will be time to repot by May.
Rainy Days: 3
Aromatic days: 7, 10
Beware of loose soil, Scorpio. A business opportunity will present itself towards the end of the month in the form of synthetic fertilizer, but remain patient until the stars shine on your side of the sill in the form of peat-free compost.
Pungent Smell Days: 22, 23, 24
