This is a general astrological overview for all signs for March 2020. There are several important energetic shifts to take heed of in order to make the best use of these energies.
Venus in Taurus
The beginning of March starts off with a tense square between Venus and Saturn on March 3rd which could have some feeling a bit insecure as it relates to the Venus themes of money, career, possessions, self-worth, and love and relationships. Two days later on March 5th, the Venus moves into the sign of Taurus and then conjuncts Uranus in Taurus on March 8th further highlighting the focus on Venus issues. You may find that you are experiencing changes (Uranus) in your value system (Taurus) as it relates to money, possessions, self-worth and relationships. If you were feeling a bit insecure at the beginning of the month with the Venus/Saturn square, the shift of Venus into Taurus on March 8th prompts you to consider the changes you may need to make to be more fulfilled in this area of your life.
March 9th ushers in a full moon in Virgo. This full moon will receive a lovely easy flowing support from the current stellium of transiting Capricorn planets in Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto. With all of the practical earthy energy flowing, consider using this full moon to bring something to fruition with a solid foundation. Make sure to due your due diligence and mind the details as any good Virgo would due to ensure that any plans or happenings at this full moon are easily supported by the strong Saturnian/Capricorn foundation. This is also a good time to consider tending to your health as Virgo encourages health and wellness. On March 9th, the Sun in Pisces is sitting with Neptune in Pisces. This energy is great for silent retreats, meditation, indulging in spiritual practices, or engaging in creative work.
Mercury moves Direct
On March 10th, mercury officially moves out of retrograde motion. For the previous three weeks, mercury moved backwards through the sign of Pisces. Mercury retrograde already causes some delays, mishaps, and issues with communication. With its trek through nebulous Pisces, clear, definitive answers may have been hard to come creating conditions where it is best to simply put down the anchor instead of forging forth through the communication fog. When mercury moves forward, it will be in the late degrees of the air sign Aquarius can help to clear the fog in communication over the last three weeks especially when combined with the Virgo full moon happening the day before.
Spring Equinox, Sun in Aries
March 20th marks the spring equinox and the beginning of Aries season. The Spring equinox holds special importance because it marks the beginning of astrological year with Aries as the first sign. Thus, the energies of this date influence the rest of the astrological year. There are tense energies as Mars, Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn are sitting together. Likewise, Saturn in Capricorn is wrapping up its run for a few months as Saturn moves into Aquarius. There is a pull between the old and the new. You may be asked to really access what you need to let go and what steps you will need to take to move forward in a practical manner.
Saturn in Aquarius
Saturn moves into Aquarius on March 22 where it will stay until the beginning of July. After this time, Saturn will eventually finish its trek in Capricorn through the end of 2020. Saturn in Aquarius will have us facing the accountability (Saturn) related to individual and collective freedom. We will get a taste of being responsible for the freedoms that we desire. Everyone wants to be free (Aquarius) but are we individually and collectively willing to be responsible for ourselves to obtain and honor freedom? On the same day, Mars and Pluto will meet in Capricorn bringing the theme of freedom and accountability to a head in a forceful manner.
Mars in Aquarius
The month ends with another planet, Mars, moving into the sign of Aquarius on March 30th. Again, there is the theme of freedom and individuality for oneself and within the collective when dealing with Aquarius. Mars rules action, forward movement, and willpower. The combination of Mars with Saturn advises us to move forward in a wise, cautious manner.
