March is the month were we see evidence of dreams coming true. You are one with EVERYTHING! Go with the flow for your dreams to come true! “If you can dream it, you can do it!” - Walt Disney

Take a deep breath, we’re diving into deep astrological waters! We have a gathering of planets and points in Pisces, six conjunctions to the South Node, major aspects between the big planets and on top of it all, it’s eclipse season! With the powerful emphasis on the South Node, something about March will be continuously asking us to look at old patterns of behaviour. It’s like the cosmos is saying over and over again ‘let go, let go, let go’ but maybe you fear letting go because you’re worried about being washed away.

The truth is that the tide is changing. There’s a shift coming and either you can struggle against the tide and tire yourself out or you can go with the flow, trust, surrender. March kicks off with the Last Quarter Moon in Sagittarius on the 1st March. What is usually a buoyant Moon is tempered by a conjunction to Saturn, square to Jupiter in Virgo and square to the Sun and Neptune in Pisces. The Jupiter and Neptune action seems to be promising great things but Saturn insists you keep your feet on the ground. You may have a heavy feeling of being held back, like someone has got a tight hold of your reins but it’s important now to check in with yourself to see if things are manifesting in the right direction.

Juno stations retrograde in Scorpio on the 2nd March so there’s a push to review contracts and agreements both written and unspoken. With Juno stepping back through Scorpio, power dynamics in intimate relationships come under close scrutiny. Juno is utterly loyal but in the myths, she doesn’t put up with Jupiter’s dalliances – in fact she quite regularly gets her revenge! But the problem is that this type of relationship can become very wearing, very quickly. Love can turn to hate. Ultimately Juno’s retrograde period in this intense sign can bring us closer together but only with brutal honestly and a willingness to take ownership of emotional baggage.


Mercury enters Pisces on 5th March. The Pisces tidal wave is building. Logic must give way to intuition. Mars enters Sagittarius on the 6th March but this will be a comparatively short visit for Mars due to the retrograde that’s coming in April. Still, some of the wilful intensity of Mars in Scorpio lifts and our battle focus switches. During this transit, you may feel more passionate about your beliefs and want to defend your vision of the world as it ‘should’ be. Maybe you’re fighting for change, defending other cultures religions or championing causes around education. In the mundane world, there may be more vehement conflicts between those of different religions and we may see episodes of culture clash.

With the Sun also square Saturn on the same day, it could be difficult at times to maintain faith in outer structures or authorities. Jupiter’s quincunx to Uranus also on the 6th March throws in a curve ball. Whilst it’s expansive, electric, bright with possibility, it’s also awkward and ripe for rebellious extremes. Again you’re pushed back to question what you believe (Jupiter) in the face of awakening (Uranus). The Pisces Solar Eclipse on the 9th March may be another curve ball. Eclipses tend to reveal what’s hidden and are by their nature, unpredictable.

Venus enters Pisces on the 12th March because well, Venus likes to be where the party is and everyone who’s anyone is attending this pool party. Venus joins the Sun, Mercury, Neptune, Chiron and the South Node. Venus is Pisces brings a soft focus to everything. This is a sweet, kind, compassionate influence which can sweep us up on waves of romantic idealism. We come up for air somewhat on the 15th March with the First Quarter Moon in Gemini square to the Pisces Sun. Emotionally we’d like the facts even if our intuition is pulling us in a different direction.


Jupiter’s second trine to Pluto occurs on the 16th March which could perhaps be seen as a force (Pluto) for good (Jupiter). Belief plays a significant part in the process of transformation. Provided we play nicely with this transit, then on an individual level, we could see significant developments in the areas of life described by the houses where Jupiter and Pluto are transiting in the chart. As Jupiter is retrograde, don’t expect everything to come at once but the step by step nature of Virgo should help you to recognise positive movements. The Sun enters Aries on the 20th March, beginning Spring in the Northern Hemisphere and of course we celebrate International Astrology Day! The Aries ingress chart is used to gauge developments in the mundane world.

Mercury follows the Sun into Aries on the 22nd March and then we have the second square between Jupiter and Saturn on the 23rd March. Expansion meets contraction. I often call this the ‘sensible’ transit because these two planets can work well together if we can get over the frustration of Saturn scrutinising our every plan. Whilst it true that growth may begin to slow, this transit can help us to catch up with ourselves. Saturn stations retrograde on the 25th March anyway and this begins a five month period where it will be necessary to check in with current commitments and responsibilities to ensure you can manage what you have at hand before you explore further opportunities (Jupiter). This is a time to finish what you have started rather than starting something new.

The month ends on a serious, Saturnian note with the Last Quarter Moon in Capricorn on the 31st March. Emotionally we recognise the need for a slow, cautious, considered approach but that Aries Sun is like rocket under our backsides insisting we need to act and act now! Again, it comes down to being a grown up and delaying our excitement for a more opportune time. Play it by the book. If it’s worth having, it’s worth waiting for.

Moon in Aquarius


Moon in Aquarius

Moon in Aquarius people are extremely observant. They are life-time students of human nature, loving to analyze why people do what they do. This often stems from a detached - even shy - personality, especially in youth.
