If you know anything about astrology, you may already know that March heralds two big astrological events: Saturn entering Pisces on the 7th and Pluto entering Aquarius on the 23rd. I’ve addressed what both these events mean for you in separate sections at the bottom of this month’s horoscope.
March is Pisces season and Pisces rules your personal money sector. The Sun is here until the 20th, the day of the Equinox, and talk planet Mercury is in Pisces from the 2nd to the 19th. This is a practical sector of your horoscope but it’s not a logical or practical approach that is likely to do well.
Certainly, you’re wise to keep close tabs on your money but trust your intuition and listen out for hunches and coincidences. Practise the law of attraction and have faith that what you give, you will receive in return. The less egotistical you can be around money, the more in flow you’re likely to be.
The Full Moon on the 7th cuts across the Virgo/Pisces axis of the zodiac and your finance sectors. Full Moons shine a light on what’s happening and can bring clarity to events. This would be a good date to make a big decision around money, especially as your ruling planet Saturn is involved – see below.
The planetary activity in Pisces feels creative and great for utilising your imagination and coming up with money-making ideas. You may be investing in property or family, especially on around the Full Moon. Feel your way forward this month and connect with your emotions.
Pisces is a compassionate, kind and caring influence. Therefore, this might be a good month to raise money for charity or to help out someone in need. Alternatively, if you’re the one who’s struggling, ask for help. Ensure the flow of money keeps moving and doesn’t get blocked.
The trickiest period is from the 14th to the 17th. Be wary of a sob story and keep your trust antennae on high alert. You may feel hopeless about a financial situation or have a sense that you need to surrender to life rather than fight against it. Learning who you can and can’t trust could prove helpful, so keep your wits about you. If possible, aim to keep money out of a relationship with a child or lover.
March is a positive time to use your connections, teach others and pass on what you know. Sharing ideas and brainstorming could be productive. This may involve going back to school, taking a test or exam or passing new qualifications.
This is because the sign of Aries is prominent throughout the month. The planet of relating Venus is here until the 16th, a good time to look out for contacts who can help you. Create new friendships, and gravitate towards people of like minds.
Then, on the 19th, talk planet Mercury enters Aries on the 19th and, on the 20th, the Sun enters Aries, the first sign of the zodiac. Plus, the following day, the 21st, there’s a New Moon here, a symbol of new beginnings.
In your horoscope, Aries rules communication and education. It’s about your community, siblings and neighbours. This would be a good time to reach out to other people. Your voice can make a difference, so speak up and speak your mind
In fact, you may find that you can’t stop talking with this planetary influence and you may be putting the world to rights. If you’re a typical Sun Aquarius, you often want to play your part within society, politics or your community. Have your say, find your voice and join in with your tribe to make a difference.
Lucky Jupiter is pulled into the Aries picture as it teams up with the planet of love and money Venus on the 2nd and talk planet Mercury on the 28th. These are potentially lucky dates for you as Jupiter is your ruling planet.
It’s about conversation, connection and asking for what you want or need. If any new opportunities come into your inbox on or around these dates, they’re worth following up. Be sociable and gravitate towards the people you love and admire.
Mars On The Move
Action planet Mars is on the move this month after an unusually long stay in your fellow air sign Gemini. Mars entered Gemini in August 2022 and this is where Mars turned retrograde in the last two months of 2022 and the first half of January 2023.
Gemini rules play rather than work in your horoscope. It’s about creative writing, your hobbies and leisure activities. Gemini rules children, romance and fun. You may have been on something of a roller-coaster ride in one of these key areas since the middle of last year. Or, perhaps you’ve been engaged in a war of words.
This month, however, Mars leaves its shadow phase on the 16th as something in your life dissolves or breaks free. Then, on the 25th, Mars moves on and enters water sign Cancer. This is the time to turn your attention to work rather than play, to your everyday routine, your fitness and health.
A major new chapter is opening up this month and it’s wise to pay attention to the basics, the everyday matters that keep you well in mind, body and soul.
Saturn Enters Pisces – March 7
Saturn is the planet of rules and regulation, authority, discipline and boundaries. Since December 2017, Saturn has been in Capricorn and Aquarius, its two signs of rulership. Saturn rules with a firm hand during this period.
This month, Saturn moves into Pisces, the last star sign and an emotional water sign, which is unknown territory for the planet representing boundaries. Pisces is where the ego dissolves and you encounter the vast universe, the one-ness of life.
Will the unreal become real as fantasy, the imagination and the impossible become possible? Or, will Saturn bring structure and form to Pisces’ realm, e.g. the sea, drugs, the media, spirituality? The last time Saturn was in Pisces was 1993-1996 and this time around, Saturn remains in Pisces until 2026.
Saturn is your traditional ruling planet and is leaving Aquarius, your star sign. As Saturn is the planet of authority, commitment and discipline, notice where you’ve stepped up your game or become more serious about your personal goals and aims over the last couple of years. There is a flip side to Saturn, however, as sometimes it can slow you down or indicate a period of hard work or hardship.
Saturn moves into Pisces and your personal money sector. Therefore, it’s time to decide what you’re ready to commit to and where you’re ready to move on. These are Saturn’s themes, planning financial long-term goals, also blocking any drains on your money.
Values and self-worth are under the cosmic spotlight. Ideally, it’s a time to ensure you value yourself highly so you’re paid what you deserve. At the same time, shift your financial attitude to become more of a saver than a spender.
Pluto Enters Aquarius – March 23
The slowest-moving planet Pluto changes star sign this month and moves into Aquarius. Pluto is the planet of power & transformation, loss & endings. The last time Pluto changed star sign was 2008 when it entered Capricorn, the sign of big business, coinciding with a financial crash.
It will take Pluto eighteen months before it’s established in Aquarius, the star sign linked to technology, equality and the collective, where it will remain until 2043.
As Pluto’s a generational planet, the themes may not resonate with you immediately. Yet, it’s helpful to note where Pluto is strong in your horoscope and where there may be a theme of transformation, loss or deep psychological change.
Pluto’s been moving through Capricorn and the most hidden sector of your horoscope. This can be a time of deep inner work, retreat or solitude. Sometimes, you’re learning about life the hard way.
Pluto’s move into your star sign Aquarius is an indication that you’re wise to engage with life fully. You can’t detach or cut off when Pluto’s involved. This is the planet of deep psychological transformation, so engage with personal growth or other activities that transform who you are.
You could become a tech whizkid with Pluto in Aquarius and be at the forefront of AI (Artificial Intelligence) or new future-oriented trends. As an Aquarius, you always have one eye on the future so consider how you can get involved in shaping society and helping to bring about a more equal world.
