March begins with the Sun in Pisces and ends with the Sun in Aries. We travel and move from the element of Water, which influences Pisces, and into Fire’s influence on Aries. We also go from processing the world through our emotions to entering a zone of revival and transformative energy as Spring is on the horizon.
March 2023 Monthly Astrological Forecast
Sun in Pisces started on February 19 and exits on March 20. Pisces, ruled by Neptune and Jupiter, is a mutable water sign that impacts how we process and function in our environment. Though the element of water rules emotions, it does not mean that we are always emotionally in control, nor do we always understand our emotional experiences. It is an element that offers us the opportunity to develop empathy, compassion, insight, and a deep understanding of others and ourselves.
The cycle of the Sun in Pisces is an opportunity to work through relationship issues and reinforce love connections. It is a great cycle to enjoy the little things in a relationship; engage in loving and nurturing gestures such as packing them lunch, writing a love letter, giving them a massage, or surprising them with carefree activities.
On March 21st, the Sun enters Aries, a Cardinal fire sign ruled by Mars. Aries brings us the element of fire, which allows us to transfer and make necessary changes in our lives.
We shall review the aspects of their general influence before diving into the specific Sun signs. Always remember that regardless of the challenges, there are ways to navigate and improve situations which is why I have also included the best dates for taking specific actions.
Love Aspects as Influenced by the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, and Sun Signs Transits
Full Worm Moon in Virgo – March 7, 2023
Virgo, an Earth sign, is ruled by Mercury, which makes this sign analytic, organized, and strategic. During the full Moon in Virgo, we sort out our moods and feelings to the point that we may not be emotionally connected. However, the benefit of being less moody is that it allows us to develop a deeper understanding without being emotionally blinded. It is a good Moon to develop personal discipline and focus on getting things done.
Moon ritual: Using a blue stone and blue candle meditate on grounding and creating emotional stability.
Mercury in Pisces - March 3, 2023 – March 20, 2023
As Mercury travels through Pisces, we are more in tune with our inner realm than the outer. Though we may appear absent-minded and distracted, we pay more attention than others realize. In the area of relationships, we can connect intuitively and often anticipate the needs of our partners. Of course, we may still struggle to disclose our honest thoughts, but we remain compassionate and supportive of those that need us.
Mercury in Aries – March 20, 2023 – April 2, 2023
Mercury moves into Aries just as the Sun is entering Aries. The fire element of Aries will transform Mercury into a more active and assertive role. When it comes to communication, the energy is straightforward and crystal clear; there is no vagueness or hinting. If you feel strongly about something, you won’t hesitate to express it; however, communication may appear abrupt and too intense for sensitive people. In general, the best aspect of this placement is that when it comes to relationships, you won’t hesitate to express your desires or feelings, which allows the other person to know where you stand.
Venus in Aries - March 1, 2023 - March 16, 2023
During the transit of Venus in Aries, we feel brave, adventurous, and willing to engage romantically without hesitations. We tend to dive into the deep end of the love pool without overthinking or worrying about outcomes. Our bravery in love may be admirable, but it is also potentially chaotic. It can deliver us into a realm of complications since we leap before we know if the other person feels the same or is ready for a commitment. It is a reasonable period for individuals who often hesitate to commit to or date new people.
Venus in Taurus - March 17, 2023 - April 11, 2023
Venus is Taurus transits invokes sensuality, a desire for pleasure and indulgence. The energy of Venus in Taurus engages in a slow and steady dance of courtship, and though it takes a while to ignite, it's long-lasting and not fickle. Venus in Taurus is a bit more cautious, primarily because commitment is earned and not something tossed randomly. It’s a good transit for those looking to commit or move in with their partner. For single people, it can be challenging to meet new people, but it’s a good cycle for evaluating relationship needs and sorting out what matters most.
Mars in Gemini - Until March 25, 2023
For the last few months, Mars has been in Gemini, allowing us to learn to express ourselves, especially our personal needs. Mars, typically combative, while stationed in Gemini, enables us to fight for what is essential and needs changing. Mars doesn’t allow us to be passive and forces us to be proactive. During the transit of Mars in Gemini, we engaged our wits and logic to stand up and manage what can often be challenging. In a relationship, Mars in Gemini helps us establish healthy boundaries and develop our skills for getting our needs met, improving the quality of our relationship with others.
Mars in Cancer - March 26, 2023 – May 20, 2023
As Mars enters the zodiac sign of Cancer, we can feel ourselves becoming less analytical and more emotionally charged. Our ability to remain steady and focused is replaced by a fluctuating mood that can run the gamut from being overly sensitive to being calm and detached. We don’t have as much control over our emotions because Mars has become more empathetic during its transit in Cancer. Empathy opens up the portal into the emotional state of others, leaving us vulnerable and, at times, confused by the erratic changes. The lesson during Mars in Cancer is to remember that many of the feelings we experience are not necessarily ours but are often a collection of the emotional baggage of others. It is a time to practice grounding meditation, journaling, and time off to detach from overload.
