Sagittarius (23 November – 21 December)
As March begins, you’re deep in the realm of the emotions and it feels like a sentimental start to the month. Key planets are gathering in the water sign Pisces down at the base of your horoscope. Pisces rules your home and family, your past and where you come from.
You might be on a hunt for news about your ancestry or have a clear sense of your roots and want to know more about your past, your lineage. Your ruling planet, Jupiter, is in the mix and Jupiter is currently in another of the water signs, Scorpio.
Scorpio rules the world of psychoanalysis, therapy and all things psychic. This is deep water that reveals your most hidden emotions. Scorpio is the sign before Sagittarius and the most hidden sector of your horoscope.
Sometimes, this is a period of preparation, doing your inner work or research ready for a new chapter which could begin in November of this year. There may be a specific reason why you crave solitude or you’re facing loneliness. You might be recuperating from an illness or find you’re constantly thinking about people from the past or delving into past lives.
Jupiter’s planetary energy is strong this month as Jupiter turns retrograde on the 9th. This means it hardly moves at all throughout March so you may feel stuck or be fixated on a personal issue or obsession.
The star sign Pisces is about surrender and letting go and it’s the beginning of March when the theme of release is strong. This is due to a Full Moon cutting across the Virgo/Pisces axis of the zodiac on the 2nd.
You could find yourself at a significant turning point during this period and can clearly see what’s behind you and what’s in front of you. This would be a good time to make a key decision about your future plans.
Love too is all around you as the month begins and it’s wise to find support from loved ones and to be there for family and close connections in your life. The planet of relating, Venus is in Pisces, a symbol of unconditional love and on the 1st, Venus teams up with your ruling planet, Jupiter. This evokes the theme of a constant flow of love.
The watery world of Pisces continues to flow until the 20th when the Sun changes star sign. The New Moon in Pisces on the 17th signifies new beginnings for home and family affairs. It’s an ideal date to move or organise a close celebration.
Plus, the Sun in Pisces teams up with your ruling planet Jupiter on the 13th, another date to note, when you’re in the flow of good fortune. What you give, you receive in return.
As a Sagittarius and one of the fire signs, you can only wallow in the emotional world for so long. You may become bored or know that you want to get back out into the world and this is advisable in the month ahead.
The fire sign activity kicks in early in the month on the 6th when the social planets Mercury and Venus move into Aries and the sector of your horoscope which rules romance, children, entertainment and luck. This is about prioritising play and fun and being actively social.
Also, you have action planet Mars in your star sign Sagittarius until the 17th so, alongside the watery world of Pisces, you have personal goals and aims to keep you busy. The star date is the 11th when Mars teams up with innovative Uranus in Aries. This is spontaneous, fun and extremely hedonistic. It’s an ideal date to unleash the wild, extrovert side of your character.
The Sun moves into Aries on the 20th, the day of the Equinox. This is the start of a new zodiac cycle and in the northern hemisphere, it coincides with the onset of spring. There’s a theme of fresh starts, a chance to sow seeds and put energy into your life.
Love is one area that can benefit you now and if you’re seeking romance, know that you have love planet Venus in Aries and your romance sector from the 6th to the 31st. The star date is the 29th when Venus teams up with live-wire Uranus and anything goes. This is a gorgeous time to fall in love, to do something special with your partner, to say Yes to life.
Plus, there’s a second Full Moon, a Blue Moon, at the end of the month on the 31st, which cuts across the Libra/Aries axis of the zodiac. This feels sociable on the one hand and could prove to be a significant date for love and romance. Libra is the sign of relationships and Full Moons are a time when emotions are heightened.
It’s not all fun and games, however, as the month continues and some issues could arise after the 23rd. This is the date when communication planet Mercury turns retrograde, i.e. it retraces its steps through the zodiac.
Mercury retrograde is the trickster and things don’t always go according to plan when Mercury’s in retreat. You don’t have the full picture and it can be a time of lies or misunderstandings. Bear this in mind, especially in close relationships.
Best to wait until Mercury turns direct on April 15th before you make up your mind about love or someone close. In fact, the middle of next month looks stunning for new beginnings on the romance or children front.
Also, you have key planets in Capricorn later this month as Mars joins Saturn and Pluto in this sector of your horoscope on the 17th. So money is important whether you’re keen to earn more and you feel ambitious or you want to rein in someone else’s spending. You can’t ignore practical matters as March comes to a close.
