It was one year ago that we all started to shut down because of a little known virus called COVID-19. It’s a year later, we’re still dealing with the fallout from this shutdown.
We now know 2020 was a year of wiping everything away for a clean slate. For those who hoped 2021 would be a bright new beginning, that hope has certainly been dashed. What remains has more hope than we may have originally thought.
We do have some great astrological news for March 2021. All of the outer planets will be direct this month. Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto – all moving forward. Now is not the time to look back, but to set new goals. Ask yourself, “What is holding me back?” March is the month to make it happen. On your mark, get set, go!
An Astrological Outlook for the Signs
Happy birthday, Aries! This is your official “New Year” and what better time to celebrate on the first official day of spring, March 21. Mars, your ruler, moves into your 3rd house on the 4th of the month. This is a good time for networking and meeting people, selling things, community work and studying, learning, writing and sharing information.
On the 13th we have a new moon in your 12th house and on the 16th, Mercury moves into your 12th house. This means it’s time to release and let go where things are not working or moving. Time to surrender. Go out in nature and time to peacefully recharge your batteries. You have a chance for new spiritual beginnings.
On the 21st, the sun moves into Aries followed by Venus in Aries on the 22nd. Venus in your first house means it’s your time, Aries. You’re popular in love, romance and work and it’s prime time to attract the people you have been looking for in life.
On the 28th, we have a full moon in your relationship area which will bring to light changes, an important opportunity to welcome balance in your relationships and partnerships.
The beginning of the month finds action planet Mars in your 2nd house of money and financial endeavors. It’s time to take action and get your financial affairs in order. From your talents, abilities and doing what you love, it is a great time to energize this area of your life.
On the 13th and 16th, you have a new moon and Mercury lighting up your 11th house of community and collaboration. Time for some new collaborations and networks to take it to the next level. Then on the 21st the sun moves into Aries, which is your 12th house. Time to take a time out before your birthday next month. The time before our birthday is always a time to go within and reflect.
On the 22nd, Venus moves into Aries, so take a time out. Time to recharge those batteries and honor yourself. Are you always pushing yourself? Time to cut yourself some slack. Then on the 28th, we finish up the month with a full moon in your 6th house of health and well being. Can you make any changes in your diet or exercise routine that will help you achieve better health and wellness? Now’s the time!
Buckle up your seatbelts, Gemini. On the 4th Mars bursts into your first house of me, me, me! It’s energy time! Time to move forward with projects and all things “you.” The planets are there giving you support. You can accomplish a great deal at this time.
On the 13th we have a new moon in your 10th house of career followed by Mercury on the 16th, the planet of communication. Watch out for new opportunities in the work arena as well as how you interact with the world around you. You can accomplish a great deal this month, Gemini! Changing your thought patterns at this time could change your life.
This is a good time for digging deep, Cancers. On the 4th, Mars moves into your 12th house of dreams and your subconscious world, making it a good time to meditate, relax, go deep. Your new moon on the 13th in your 9th house makes this an auspicious time for travel (if you can make that work) international connections, higher learning and finding meaning in your life. Then on the 21st, the sun moves into your 10th house of career. All eyes are on you, Cancer. Make hay while the sun shines, my popular friend.
It’s time for you to forge new friendships and social connections, my sweet Leo’s. Collaboration energy is strong right now for you and it’s time to reach out to the world.
On the 13th, you have a new moon in your 8th house of finances, healing old wounds and traumas and digging deep. Do that research and you might just find support for some of your biggest goals, taking your message to a larger audience. Ask yourself who you would like to connect with and how can I get my message out to the world. This is the month for manifesting these important connections that can take Leo to the next level.
Did you recently experience a “no” in the career field, Virgo? It’s time for a cosmic do-over. Ask again and the answer might surprise you. Mars moves into your career house on the 4th meaning this is a good time to ask that question. Don’t take no for an answer.
On the 13th you have a new moon in your relationship house. This is a good time for renewing an old relationship or starting a new one. All signs for marriage and partnership are fabulous for Virgos this month. March is a perfect time for opening yourself emotionally, attracting money and finances to you as well as focusing on what matters most in your life.
If it weren’t for Covid, your planetary activity would be promoting travel. If there is a way to safely make it work, it’s an auspicious time for hitting the road, spiritual growth, exploration and taking action on adding new and interesting people into your realm.
It’s also a good month for taking a look at your diet, health and wellness. Sure, it’s not the new year, but you can still set some goals and perhaps launch a new health and wellness routine. Once the 21st rolls around, it’s that time of year when Libran’s examine your relationships and partnerships. How can you bring more harmony into your relationships? Are your needs being met? March is a time for reflection.
If you’re a typical Scorpio, then this will be a perfect month for you. Mars moving into your 8th house on the 4th of March means it’s a great time for research, delving into things more deeply and finding out juicy tidbits of useful information. These are all things Scorpio’s adore.
It’s also going to be a good time for romance, creativity, fun and joy. Not too shabby. Once the sun goes into your 6th house on the 21st, it’s a fabulous time for hitting the reset button on all things health and wellness. Check in with yourself and look within. How are things going with you and what things do you need to let go of so that you can move forward with recharged batteries? Now’s the time to make those changes.
On the 4th of March, Mars moves into your relationship zone. It’s a great time for reaching out, shaking out the cobwebs and having important conversations. Add to that a new moon in your area of home and family on the 13th of March, and you have a month dedicated to your environment and any healing that needs to take place. Don’t get the wrong idea. It doesn’t all have to be about having “the talk.” Especially once the sun moves into Aries on the 21st, you should be feeling joy and creativity and lots of healing. If you’ve been feeling weighed down by life, it should lift this month.
How are you feeling, Capricorn? March is the time to make changes in your health and wellness. Are there ways that you could be eating healthier or should you rethink your exercise routine? It’s “change” time and you’ll have the energy of Mars in your corner to make these changes turn into new habits.
On the 13th, the new moon in your 3rd house shines a light on your communication, writing, teaching, networking and even your siblings. Improving communications on the home-front could be a great use of your energies this month. It’s important to have your home life in order by the end of the month because you might be seeing some important changes to your career around the 28th. You could be thrust into the public eye, so maybe have a facial and get your hair done.
I think most astrologers (and even non-astrologers) wish they were all Aquarians this year. Every month gets better and better for you and this month is no exception. Mars in your 5th house of joy and creativity means you will be spending energy on all things romance, love, new business opportunities and perhaps even a baby on the way, if you like. It’s great for all things “creative” including babies.
On the 13th, you have a new moon in your 2nd house of money, so this is a great time to write a list of intentions and start manifesting away. Keep your thoughts loving and positive and happy things will come to you, dear Aquarians.
Happy birthday, Pisces! We start the month with Mars moving into your 4th house of home and family. You have cosmic permission to redecorate and spruce up your home. If you’ve been feeling any laziness or procrastination in this area, it will be wiped away and you’ll be raring to go.
On the 13th, you have a new moon in your sign, making this a great time to celebrate you! Value yourself and everything you bring to the table, dear Pisces. Don’t be shy. Get out there and make it happen.
