This Month’s Highlights
Horoscopes for the Month
Void of Course Dates this Month
The New Moon in the last week of February energized the sign of Pisces and influences us in the first few weeks of March. This lunation brings a “fresh start” to our lives. We are awakened to the need for a spiritual vision. It’s time to revitalize ourselves through experiences that require imagination, compassion, or that simply represent a “break” from the routine. We may be putting something behind us in order to begin anew. This New Moon is particularly interesting since it harmonized with Mars and Uranus, suggesting it’s forward-focused and encouraging change, but is moving toward retrograde Mercury, suggesting looking back. That Mars is aligning with the South Node also indicates that we’re seeing where we’ve been over-attached. The chart itself forms an uncommon bundle pattern, and we can be particularly focused, determined, and concentrated.
The Full Moon occurs in the sign of Virgo on the 9th, bringing sudden awareness to our lives, particularly of areas that require more order. Something is exposed or illuminated, prompting us to get in touch with those things that we may have been neglecting or putting off, especially regarding our work, services, habits, health, and routines. The Sun has just aligned with Neptune and Mercury is stationing as it turns direct on the same day. This lunation harmonizes with Mars, Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn (widely) in Capricorn, and we can be feeling particularly inspired, ready to put in the effort to realize our dreams.
Mercury ends its retrograde on the 9th, turning direct after a retrograde period since February 16th. Mercury continues in Pisces until the 4th when it retreats into Aquarius. This is a strong period for getting in touch with our humanitarian goals as well as ideals. After the 9th, Mercury retraces its steps, completing its transit of Aquarius on the 16th when it enters Pisces once again.
The Sun and retrograde Mercury met on February 25th, and this allowed the Sun to catch up with Mercury as Mercury was ahead of the Sun by degree since January. Symbolically, we may have been overthinking and getting ahead of ourselves, but now we feel caught up. Mercury is direct on the 9th and will remain in its post-retrograde shadow until March 29th when it reaches 12-13 Pisces, the degree at which it first turned retrograde on February 16th. From March 9-29, we may be returning to recent decisions and conversations now equipped with a new perspective on these matters. Delays might lift.
Saturn enters Aquarius on March 21st, where it will transit until July 1st before returning to the sign of Capricorn to finish up its transit. Saturn will transit Aquarius more consistently from December 17th forward (until March 7, 2023). This can be a time for clearing out the deadwood, prioritizing quality over quantity, simplifying, and turning a critical eye to our social lives, friendships, causes, group associations, happiness goals, involvements, contributions, and associates. It’s a great time for technological advances that improve the community and help us connect more effectively. We seek more realistic plans and goals/dreams, and we have a good sense of both the past and future. Ideally, we’re able to put our egos aside to do what’s best for the collective during this period.
Jupiter forms a quintile with Chiron on March 23rd. This long-term transit will occur again in June and November, following alongside the Jupiter-Neptune sextile and Jupiter-Pluto conjunction. It helps open our minds to others’ struggles and facilitates explaining our perspective to others. We’re more willing to learn and grow through our experiences. Both Jupiter and Chiron are good for seeing the whole of a situation, making holisitic problem-solving particularly rewarding and successful as these bodies connect through a creative aspect. We’re absorbing and sharing what we’ve learned from past experiences and mistakes.
The New Moon on the 24th energizes the sign of Aries. This lunation brings a “fresh start” to our lives, and challenges us to show a pure part of ourselves to the world. By acting upon our own inner impulses (constructive ones!) without fear, and by abandoning the need to refine these impulses based on what others might want us to do or what others think we “should” do, we learn more about ourselves. If we learn to depend on ourselves, we exude an all-new aura of strength that comes from personal integrity and confidence, as well as a pure and innocent charm.
Jupiter is heading toward a conjunction to Pluto on April 4th, and we’re likely to feel increasingly more determined to achieve our ambitions as March advances.

This Month’s Overview Horoscopes
Overview horoscopes will fill in here as I write them, ideally during the week before the month begins. It is not unusual to see some signs temporarily missing as I usually write them over the course of a few days, and I always start with the featured sign of the month (birthday month).
Horoscope Overview for March 2020 for Aries:
You enjoy increased energy, ambition, and motivation to pursue your goals this month, dear Aries, but you also take the time for rest and recuperation. With a winning formula of enthusiasm and respect for your need for downtime, you're capable of much!
Venus ends its transit of your sign on the 4th, after which it spends the rest of March in your resources sector. While there, Venus harmonizes with Mars, Jupiter, and Pluto in your career and reputation sector, softening what might otherwise be a rather brusque, tense approach to work or the public. Money is in good favor. This is a good time for showing the world your unique qualities and abilities. Past good deeds or work can be rewarded or acknowledged now. Opportunities abound in your personal life, with career or significant goals, and in financial or business arenas. You feel pleasantly capable, competent, and ambitious.
News about health or work around the 8-9 may be exaggerated, but the truthful elements need assessment in the days following. This is a fine time for understanding your work-life balance better. A project begins to regain momentum, and money-making ideas are plentiful. Something you've been waiting for now is clarified.
Mercury ends its retrograde on the 9th. Regarding work and health, you may be waiting on answers or returning to old problems before then, but after which, an end is in sight or solutions are found. You can be feeling positive about your health, habits, and routines.
You are drawn to activities that improve your bottom line or help you express your need for more security in your life. You may need to slow your usual quick pace so that you can allow inspiration into your life. Support may come from behind the scenes.
In the second half of the month, you enjoy an opportunity period for money, income, career, and reputation. You have a strong desire to make something unique and special, or to connect in powerful and perhaps profitable ways. It's an excellent period for initiative and popularity.
While you've been more protective of your goals in recent years, you're now bringing more openness, hope, and tolerance to the equation, and it's doing wonders for you. You can be feeling good about the impression you're making and the work you're doing. Your most enterprising and entrepreneurial traits are on show. This is a time for thinking big and for getting going on an important project or endeavor and pursuing your ambitions directly and courageously. You want more freedom and movement, or to call the shots. Embrace your desire to improve, advance, and excel. Keeping in mind that bigger isn't always better and that your actions have more impact than usual, you can undoubtedly push yourself more than you typically do for worthwhile pursuits.
You seem to need to do something different than the regular to bring money in right now, and your ideas are very progressive. Personal resources can continue to fluctuate, but you feel more in control. You are also ready to defend yourself and what you believe you're worth.
Still, with the Sun in your solar twelfth house until the 19th, it's generally a time for keeping a lower profile and working on solid, long-term goals. You'll be tending to those things you've left unfinished or neglected - matters that suddenly become pressing at this time.
Saturn changes signs on the 21st, moving out of your career sector and into the sector of your solar chart that rules friendships, networking, and dreams/wishes. During this cycle that runs for much of the coming three years, there can be some heaviness or selectiveness in your dealings with friends, and perhaps more burdens, limitations, and responsibilities. However, it can also be a time when a friendship deepens and stabilizes, and when you set solid, meaningful, long-term plans into motion. You'll find that your goals are shifting and that you are ready to take on challenges. You can accomplish a great deal with minimal stress. With Saturn in supportive aspect to your sign, you might enjoy a more stable and steady period.
The New Moon on the 24th occurs in your sign, signaling a time of personal new beginnings and a chance to reinvent yourself. This lunation helps to reinforce a strong sense of self.
You could experience a reality check of sorts in a friendship, group association, or with a long-term goal as Mars and Saturn align on the last day of the month. You may need to lay down the law or put on the brakes temporarily before moving ahead. Considering your limits is essential now. A need for maturity can emerge and is your very best bet for facing difficulties or obstacles right now.
Horoscope Overview for March 2020 for Taurus:
You're in good form this month, dear Taurus, possessing both determination and great charm. It's one of the better months of the year for friendship, romance, and relationships.
Mars transiting your house of travel until the 30th could stimulate a desire to explore beyond your regular routines. You're more intellectually active and brave about furthering your experiences.
Venus graces your sign most of the month, emerging in Taurus on the 5th, and this serves to enhance your natural charm and appeal. You're turning heads, particularly around the 7-8, 22, and 26-28, and it's not only for your magnetism - your brains get attention as well. Make a few wishes, dare to say them aloud, and expect results. Venus spends several weeks in your sign every year, and this time around gets extra support.
March is excellent for the appreciation of your personality, both from others and yourself (self-acceptance). You're more willing to put yourself out there. The Full Moon on the 9th brings your true feelings on a matter to the surface, and it happens when Mercury ends its retrograde. You'll see some results and forward movement after this date.
Especially in the second half of March, you're in a stronger position to go after what you want. It's a good time to expand and pursue a new personal interest or course of study. It's also favorable for promoting yourself or your work, and for learning or advancing in your trade. A compelling experience may happen now that changes your perspective. It can be a good time for making significant changes to educational, legal, and travel plans, or for building brand new ones based on newly-discovered passions.
You're expanding your horizons or your reach. A bold new interest or adventure may very well be in store. You feel especially passionate about your ideas in March. If life has been feeling a little stale recently, this is the boost or reinvigoration you need!
There is a subtle shift in energy from the 20th forward when the Sun enters your privacy sector for a month-long stay. It's a natural period for withdrawing just a little so that you can renew your strength and vitality.
From the 21st, Saturn begins a long-term transit of your sector of career and reputation. This transit will be with you until July 1st, and then will return in December, after which the cycle runs until March 2023. During this cycle that will be with you more often than not in the next three years, you are likely to reassess your career and standing, realigning your attitudes to serve your purpose better and to get yourself on track. Circumstances conspire to remind you of the importance of structure, responsibility, and reputation in your life. Many of you will be making changes in the coming years so that your career path better reflects the principles closest to your heart. There are more significant responsibilities, but also greater accomplishments possible.
There can be a reality check along these lines in the last few days of March. A goal that you've been gunning for may now seem imminent or comes to pass. The details that you may have overlooked in the past are now emerging. This puts you in a better position, but you could feel slightly overwhelmed. With pressure coming from all angles, you might decide to make a stand or dig in your heels and resist. A conservative approach in business is necessary now. You may need to lay down the law if you're in a position of authority. You can come up with efficient and workable long-term life strategies and plans. The key is to be patient and focus on the goal. A career peak of sorts can be in the works.
Horoscope Overview for March 2020 for Gemini:
March is an excellent month for letting go of limiting circumstances and self-defeating attitudes, dear Gemini, or making a break from the past in a meaningful way. You're putting more faith in your intuition. If you've been limiting yourself in your career due to fear of change or fear of failure, this is a great time to develop more faith in your abilities.
Until the 30th, increased motivation is with you to seek out support (financial or emotional), make intimate connections, and move sensitive issues out into the open. You may be doing some exciting analysis or investigating. There can be some conflicts experienced over money or resources, but if so, you get to the point of resolution. Overall, this is a good time for getting a handle on work and health, exploring your options, and doing hard-hitting research and analysis.
Love becomes more complicated and private from the 5th forward. Recognize that signals from others can be misread until the 9th before jumping to conclusions. After the 9th, you feel considerably more confident about making important decisions, and you convey your ideas with greater certainty. You recognize the need to balance your life by paying more attention to your private life.
You can be determined to eliminate something unhealthy from your life or to uncover essential truths, especially as the month advances. It's a powerful time for breaking a bad habit, and intimate relationships can turn a corner and transform now. You're finding inspiration in strong feelings. You stand to gain a better understanding of yourself, an intimate relationship, or discover new resources or funding. You might enjoy an opportunity period for support, personal empowerment, debts, loans, and close relationships.
You are emotionally courageous and up for a challenge in March. You're enthusiastic and filled with resolve and conviction to make changes. It's a fabulous time to heal, grow, and move past old hurts or limitations or to take a leap and make a move, but do watch for pushing a matter too far or too hard.
Saturn moves into Aquarius on the 21st and will stick around in your spirit sector for the better part of three years. Its first round starts now and runs until July 1s. Part Two will span from December of this year until March 2023. This transit can bring more focus on teaching, publishing, and sharing information in your career--or in preparation for your career. It's also a stabilizing, supportive energy that helps you to meet responsibilities. You are entering a period in your life in which getting organized is a priority, and easier than usual! Saturn moving in harmony with your sign may not be the most glamorous of transits, but it does help round out your life.
The New Moon on the 24th gives you a shot of power to begin fresh with a friend or group. The month closes with more energy than it began for you. Still, pacing yourself is crucial now since Mars meets Saturn on the last day of March. It's a grounding, stabilizing influence that can benefit you much, but it also calls upon you to exercise some self-discipline. In other words, it gives back as long as you put in the effort. You're in a great position to study/learn something worthwhile. With a brighter and clearer outlook, you're in a better place to make adjustments and plans that are genuinely doable.
Horoscope Overview for March 2020 for Cancer:
Good energy is with you for networking, friendships, and group activities in March, dear Cancer. Problems or tensions brewing in one-to-one relationships are brought out into the open, and it's time for some air-clearing. You might also find yourself coming to others' defense more frequently.
Your spirit for making friends is renewed, particularly after the 9th, and the desire to do something about regrets or outworn, stale patterns of relating with others is strong. This can also be a time of news or information that moves things forward. With the Full Moon occurring in your communications sector on the 9th, you may need to scurry to take care of errands, small problems, paperwork, or other mundane affairs, particularly as you've been paying more attention to everything but these things recently. This is a brilliant, illuminating lunation related to your communications, studies, personal interests, making contact, and transportation. Connections and news occurring now can be significant.
Partnerships continue to keep you on your toes this month. In fact, you may be attracting intense energy into your life through your relationships, and growth comes from confronting matters. Somebody may very well motivate you to pursue a long-time dream or to take charge of your life, or you might team up to get something important done. A relationship can be a catalyst for you to make meaningful changes. The second half of March is an opportunity period for friendship, partnership, and group associations.
There is strong activity in your partnership sector again this month, but one major player (Saturn) is on its way out of this area of your solar chart. It's a powerful time to come up with solutions to problems or plans. Mars in your partnership sector makes it easy for someone to rattle your cage, get you going, and motivate you. As Mars and Jupiter join forces this month, you're likely to see that growth comes from confronting matters. You're direct and ready to do what it takes to make improvements.
On the 21st, Saturn moves into the sign of Aquarius, where it will transit for most of the upcoming three years (from March 21-July 1 and then December 2020 to March 2023). During this cycle, you may be dealing with some restricted support or resources from a partner. If there is some dullness or routine involved in your intimate life, you'll want to do something about it. This is a time for learning to rely more faithfully on your own ability to make a living. You would do well to organize your finances and to get a stronger sense of where you stand in terms of indebtedness and support, as circumstances are such that you will need to tidy up in these areas in the next while.
In the last couple of days of March, you get a push to become more organized and to take better care of yourself. It's now time to make up for past procrastination or glossing over details. Work on sorting things out, debugging plans, attending to details, and reviewing recent life issues with maturity and realism.
The power to boost your professional life is strong from the 20th. The New Moon happening on the 24th provides you with a new start and renewed perspective on your professional and public life. You are more able to embrace change rather than feeling at its mercy.
Horoscope Overview for March 2020 for Leo:
You'll be dealing with relationship matters and especially commitments this month, dear Leo. There can also be building ambition and joy regarding work and health routines, as you feel more structured and accomplished.
Mars is pumping you up regarding your routines until the 30th, and you have increased motivation and initiative when it comes to work, fitness, and health pursuits. You can be working tirelessly at times, and you have more pride in the work you do, your body/health, and your ability to handle your daily routines. While this is not the best time for working relationships if they've been strained, if you can set your own pace, you'll be just fine. Stay active, but avoid excesses for better mental and physical health.
You are comfortably challenged to find your own unique path - one that reflects your talents and your individuality. Still, be wary of misleading information and prepare for the potential need to redo projects you thought were complete in the first week of the month. You could be dealing with delays and a general feeling of being held back.
Around the 8-9, money matters come to full bloom. It's an excellent time for gaining a greater understanding of your money situation and perhaps relationships. An epiphany about your needs and wants occurs now, and it leads to good things. This happens just when Mercury ends its retrograde cycle, and plans seem to come together in the week following.
You might often find yourself in the mood to do something new, exciting, different, or challenging this month. Your enterprising spirit is in strong form, and you're not content to stick with ordinary or dull tasks! You can feel motivated to step up a health and wellness routine or make a significant lifestyle change. You're also likely to find new meaning in a project or endeavor. Bringing more energy or passion to your daily life seems natural. You may want to tone down your automatic responses to others' requests or demands, as they may be on the provocative side, but do look for opportunities to expand in the areas of work, health, or fitness without taking on too much.
You have a real sense of purpose, and your love of what you're doing reflects in your work. You're motivated to bring a plan to new heights and determined to meet (or beat) a goal. You might decide to eliminate habits in your routine that are counter-productive so that you can focus on those that serve your higher objectives. The second half of March is an opportunity period for your work, health, habits, routines, and reputation. Research can be rewarding, particularly if you're doing work based on a hunch or sudden inspiration.
Saturn moves into Aquarius, your opposing sign, on the 21st, where it will transit for a fair portion of the coming three years (from March 21-July 1 and then from December 2020 to March 2023). This is a long-term cycle in which relationships may go through some tests. Some of you are easing slowly but surely into a more committed, stable relationship; others may be questioning your current relationship or relationship status. You've recently learned to live a more structured life, and now, you're applying these things to your connections.
There can be heavy energy with a partner or significant person towards the end of March when Mars and Saturn align in your opposite sign. Or, putting extra effort into a relationship can be in focus. Responsibilities to others can feel weighty. The reality of a relationship or person in your life can be in focus. Be patient, mature, and responsible now for best results -- these are traits that will be rewarded. If a relationship or project withstands pressure, this can be a time for coming up with a new and improved plan to go forward. You can put real effort into a significant practical pursuit, although it may not be entirely enjoyable. It's essential to focus on the end goal rather than the frustration of the tasks at hand.
If you have any resolutions to make revolving around traveling, learning, and becoming more adventurous, you might set your intentions around the New Moon on the 24th. This lunation brings new energy for educational and travel pursuits, as well as helpful connections and information. Write, speak, and generally keep in touch with others for best results. Publishing and speaking opportunities can present themselves. A new attitude toward living your life more fully can emerge in the last week of March.
Horoscope Overview for March 2020 for Virgo:
Powerful energy is with you for close partnerships, education, travel, and publishing this month, dear Virgo. You're filling with determination to improve your life, and you're learning much in the process.
You could find that you're making more concessions than usual and that your agenda takes a back seat to the plans and needs of important people in your life as you begin March. Still, you are more inclined to take the initiative in affairs of the heart, and you have more courage to create and share yourself in March. Be sure to feed your thirst for non-routine adventures.
Romance and travel or mental explorations are favored, although both are better after the 9th. Your romantic life continues to stimulate and challenge you. You're both breaking routines and building new ones. Someone might change your world in special ways with a fresh perspective. Or, relationships thrive as you come to a better understanding of one another's perspective.
The Full Moon on the 9th is in your own sign, bringing about an epiphany. A relationship matter might suddenly reveal itself, or your feelings become powerfully evident. Emotions run high, and yours could surprise you with their force. A personal revelation can also occur now. You stand to learn much about yourself and your feelings, and it can arrive in the form of a release or happy realization. This lunation occurs just when Mercury, your ruler, ends its retrograde, and you can feel nudged forward as blocks of all kinds lift.
Passions and ambitions intensify, particularly as the month progresses, and there are beautiful channels for expressing them. You're prepared to go out on a limb to make improvements and to enjoy and express yourself more fully. You can feel especially enthusiastic or passionate about a project, creative activity, or relationship, and you dare to make a move, pursue your heart's desire, or share something of yourself. Strong emotions, reactions, and opinions tend to push you in a new direction. It's an opportunity period for love, romance, education, publishing, and travel.
The intense desire to enjoy yourself or celebrate can also emerge. Healthy, considered risks can pay off now. Do check in with yourself to be certain that you're pouring your energy into pursuits that are genuinely going to serve you well. A person or group association that is more creative, visionary, unusual, or unconventional can figure strongly in your life. There can be a positive romantic turnaround or burst of energy. Love matters are intense yet peaceful and intimate. Opportunities for cooperation, loving and personal gestures, and shared happiness emerge. You feel particularly friendly and sociable, and creative matters can blossom.
Saturn begins its long-term transit of your work and health sector on the 21st. It will spend time here for much of the coming three years, with a hiatus from July to December. With this rather strict planet monitoring your daily routines, this is a time for making critical changes in your daily habits. It's a strong influence for health improvement, cutting back, and healthier, more structured routines. Some of you could land a new position that requires more structure and effort. Discipline and a slow-but-steady approach work better than bold moves in these areas. You're called upon to develop more responsibility for your work and/or health. It's not an ideal period for recognition for your efforts, but what you're doing now can lay the groundwork for the future.
With Mars and Saturn coming together at the end of March, work requires more diligence and concentration than usual, or a roadblock or slowdown reminds you that long-term success requires pacing yourself. Look for ways to simplify so that you can move forward in the best possible direction. Putting in extra effort, following the rules, and facing realities are all important now and will lead to good things, even if you'd rather be doing something else! Facing up to facts with work and health matters helps you make solid, genuinely doable plans of action.
From the 20th, you're seeking more substance in your life. Putting an end to a bad habit or creating a plan to help reduce debt is highly favored from the 24th forward. It's the time for getting the wheels in motion for a fresh start via a lifestyle change, dependency matter, or financial situation.
Horoscope Overview for March 2020 for Libra:
The month begins with a focus on reorganization, work, and attention to health and wellness, dear Libra. You want to get on top of the little things in your life. One to one relationships are in focus, and even more so as March progresses. Strong energy is with you for all self-improvement efforts - you are raring to go, ready to quiet self-defeating inner voices! You feel less at the mercy of other people and outside forces, and more equipped to handle your life in empowering ways.
Family life or your personal life is exceptionally busy for you in March. While challenges can present themselves, it's an excellent time to address long-standing problems and to take action to fix them. Love is intimate and passionate from the 5th forward.
Personal revelations serve to push you towards growth and experience around the Full Moon on the 9th. General confusion and delays begin to clear at this time, too, as Mercury ends its retrograde cycle. Current influences remind you of the need to reflect, rest, and relax. You're paying more attention to your intuition, and you may have an important realization.
To the 30th, Mars continues its transit of your solar fourth house, and more attention to home and family is likely. Still, you may need to channel excess energy into constructive outlets. It is an excellent time to redecorate, renovate, and make organizational improvements. A home gym may be part of the picture. Try not to argue over nothing important with loved ones during this cycle, but pay due attention to issues that keep cropping up, as it's a good time to address these matters.
Particularly in the second half of the month, you enjoy an opportunity period for partnerships, one-to-one relationships, intimacy, family, money, and home life. It's an excellent period for improving your emotional experience. You may be filled with enthusiasm and motivation regarding a home, family, or personal matter. Strong feelings drive you into action.
You might pioneer a new venture or make moves towards growing, building, or expanding a current one. Home, security, and family can be big motivators now. You're filling up with courage and stronger resolve, and this can very well get you over a significant emotional hurdle. A major new long-term project, as well as projects involving home development and family activities, can get a push forward. You might make creative improvements to the physical home or family life. Plans and initiatives for having fun and making your accommodations more livable can be in place now.
You're bringing an open mind and heart to your close personal relationships. There can be some tendency to indulge and possibly go over the top when it comes to spending, comfort foods, and pleasures. Still, overall it's a good time for centering yourself and approaching life with positivity. Straying somewhat from your routine can open the door to new thinking and opportunities that you may not have imagined otherwise.
Saturn enters Aquarius on the 21st, where it will transit for much of the coming three years. This transit does introduce the idea that you may need to cut back on certain pleasures and hobbies or to bring more structure to your "play" time. Hobbies might turn into work, love becomes a little more serious, and there may be fewer avenues for leisure open to you. With Saturn moving away from your family and home sector, responsibilities and pressures decrease on the domestic front.
You'll derive more enjoyment from family life and find responsibilities less burdensome. From now until July 1st (and then later, from December 2020 to March 2023), you're challenged to discipline your creative expression, and you can be a little more practical or cautious with the pursuit of love and pleasure.
With Mars and Saturn joining forces at the end of March, there could be a reality, slowdown, or block encountered in a relationship or creative project. Enthusiasm can dip, but keep in mind that a dose of reality can support you more adequately in the future. It's a time for drawing up solid plans and taking things one step at a time based on new, more realistic expectations.
The Sun heads into your partnership sector on the 20th, and the New Moon on the 24th brings a chance for a new beginning for close relationships. Fresh energy is with you for partnering matters, negotiations, a sense of balance in your life, and perspective. You now want to reach for new or refined goals related to a partnership.
Horoscope Overview for March 2020 for Scorpio:
There is a lot to celebrate, share, and enjoy this month, dear Scorpio. Still, you're also getting serious about arriving at a better balance between time spent on work and time devoted to leisure activities.
Transits this month, more often than not, motivate, energize, and animate you. You can be particularly excited to learn, connect, and pursue your interests. At times, impatience in your movements and with communications can be a problem. Otherwise, it's an excellent time to get things done and to feel pleasantly engaged.
The 8-9 is strong for releases and announcements. Mercury's retrograde cycle ends, and a Full Moon occurs that can bring about an emotional revelation or turning point related to your social life. There can be a realization that you need others. There is a sense of moving forward related to an old problem for which you now have some closure. Emotions are strong related to friendship, networking, associates, group associations, happiness goals, and social life or community.
Before Mercury's direct turn on the 9th, try not to jump to speak about a personal subject unless you're sure it's not premature to do so. You might continue to meet with delays and assorted little problems.
As the month progresses, you find it more straightforward to make connections, further studies, and communicate effectively. Motivation levels increase, your magnetism and creativity boost up, and some of you could make romantic connections through places of learning or communications projects. There is more obvious daring in your personality.
It's an opportunity period for partnerships, one-to-one relationships, communications, and love. You're in fine shape to connect with someone special. You enjoy boosts to your studies and projects, as well as your clout. Learning endeavors are highly favored in the second half of March. New interests emerge, or you approach current ones with new energy, and you're extra motivated to learn, communicate, and share your knowledge.
You are radiating positive energy that seems to attract the right people, resources, or situations to you. Negotiations can figure strongly and can very much go your way, particularly with Venus in your partnership sector, blessing one-to-one relationships of all varieties, from the 5th forward. You're especially passionate about your ideas and projects, and you may be seeking to take something to a new level–you have the courage to run with them. The ability to bend and accommodate is a helpful thing since it allows more room for creativity and magic in your relationships.
Saturn enters your solar fourth house on the 21st, where it will transit for the better part of the next three years, taking a hiatus from July 1st to December 17th. Increased responsibilities with family are likely, but you can also feel more accomplished as you meet them. Look for problem areas in the home and family unit and get a jump start on fixing them, since they're bound to emerge in the coming years.
Domestic matters require more serious thought, self-discipline, and organization. Some of you could realize a home-owning dream, although new responsibilities and pressures come along with it. Saturn's transit of your third house in recent years may have limited your responsiveness to social contact. This influence lifts now, although there's more of it to come in the second half of 2020. This is a time for working on unresolved personal issues. If your support structure is more of a burden than a support these days, it's now time to take steps to fix this.
With Mars and Saturn aligning in your home and family sector on the last day of March, there can be a block or restriction to deal with in your personal and family life. Slowing down plans makes more sense than scrapping them, even if you experience some waning motivation. There can be hard work involved with getting a problem area handled, but while there can be some heavy hours put in, you may be actively working on improving your living conditions or home life, leading to long-term benefits. The focus now should be on strengthening and rebuilding.
The last week of the month brings health and work routines into strong focus, and the 24th is an excellent time to make resolutions on these fronts. You're motivated to start fresh with your daily affairs.
Horoscope Overview for March 2020 for Sagittarius:
A strong focus on home and family matters or your personal life continues this month, dear Sagittarius. As the month advances, you look increasingly outside of your circle for feedback, pleasure, and attention.
Mars in your solar second until March 30th helps you pace yourself. Even so, you're quick to stand your ground if you feel taken for granted. You may be putting more effort into making money, and there is great energy this month for financial projects and initiatives involving home and family, especially in the second half of March.
The 8-9 is a time for career news, releases, or announcements. Your feelings about a long-term goal or your "calling" can surface now. You may need to take charge or take the lead. Mercury ends its retrograde cycle at this time, and blocks or delays seem to lift. A real sense that you want to move on comes over you at this time. A partner feels more energetic and confident after the 9th. Good news or rewards on the job front can arrive.
The second half of March is an opportunity period for you regarding finances, work, health, and relationships. It's an excellent period for enterprising and creative ways to do business, as well as for exciting purchases or gifts.
You can feel particularly motivated to improve your life or to do something courageous, likely due to strong feelings about money, possessions, or business. You're thinking big! You could enjoy a push-through or sudden boost in business or with money. Certainly, you want to move forward and take action on a project or idea. Confidence runs high as you feel that you can achieve something independently, and you have a strong sense that you can make things happen. Family or home life can be strong motivators for you. The desire to share your happiness, joy, or good fortune with others is strong. Indulge your feelings of kindness towards someone special in your life, and take the time to do something similar for yourself.
Saturn begins transiting your communications sector on the 21st, where it will influence for much of the coming three years. This transit will challenge you to channel your energies more constructively. You might take up structured learning or bring more discipline to your work or studies. You tend to communicate with more authority, and with more focus and structure, you can become quite skilled at a particular subject. Some distancing yourself from others might occur with new interests and responsibilities, however. It's a supportive transit overall--one in which you're more able to meet your obligations. You're keeping your cool! Life feels more stable. It's a fine time for learning better concentration and the ability to listen and absorb lessons/information. You're developing mental discipline and organization.
Mars meets Saturn in this area of your chart on the last day of March, and news can arrive that prompts you to get serious about a matter, or conversations occur about important topics. You become aware of details that need your attention. Approach problems one at a time, and step by step for best results. You have added power for actualizing your dreams, but you are faced with the need to take responsibility for past mistakes, follow the rules, and put in hard work. Difficulties getting your ideas across can lead to better or improved channels for communication, and the same may be the case for transportation. Aim to liberate yourself from unrealistic dreams.
The need for more leisure time becomes apparent as March progresses, and new opportunities to enjoy yourself can emerge from the 24th. Romantic energy runs high. Substantial opportunities to begin anew, whether this is creatively or romantically, arise now. New beginnings or a fresh start emerge related to fun, personal enjoyment, self-expression, children, romance, and leisure or creativity. The urge to create and share is dominant, and it might stem from a disagreement or frustration.
Horoscope Overview for March 2020 for Capricorn:
Significant changes occur this month, dear Capricorn, as Saturn leaves your sign. It's not permanent yet, but it's the beginning of your ruling planet's transition out of your sign. You want to get out and more fully experience life. Your magnetism is strong, and you're asking for what you want without apology. You're likely to find new forums for creativity and self-expression. Avoid impatience, however. Focusing on your desires is appropriate now, but avoid overdoing this. You thrive when you can set your own pace and work independently. Family is supportive and comforting in the last week of the month when efforts to reorganize the home can also pay off.
Mars continues to transit your sign, and until March 30th, you're more than willing to go after what you want, to assert your needs, and to put others in their place if they overstep their bounds. Look for healthy ways to push the limits and effective channels for excess energy. Increased activity is excellent - it's haste that is problematic. Fortunately, Mars forms some powerfully supportive aspects this month, and you'll see the most benefits as March progresses.
The 8-9 is strong for education, communication, and promotion, or publishing. A new experience, studies, topic, perspective, or idea can inspire you. A Full Moon occurs now, and Mercury turns direct after several weeks of retrograde motion. You can feel these influences as a friendly nudge forward, particularly on a mental level.
Love matters are healthy. While you may be on the fence about some things until the 9th, you're certainly not lacking when it comes to admirers. You are exuding much charm and positive energy that won't go unnoticed. Willingness to take emotional "risks" in the second half of the month can bring exciting experiences into your world.
You're in excellent shape for creative projects, relationships, career, and money matters. You have a strong desire to make something unique and special, or to connect in innovative ways. It's an excellent period for your charisma, sense of enterprise, and initiative. You might feel as if you are winding up and filling up with initiative and courage. Those who matter most tend to believe in you fully. You have the drive to make your vision a reality, and your ideas are no less than huge.
Sound energy is with you for making changes in your personal presentation, however subtle or bold, and for moving forward plans, financial initiatives, or educational and travel pursuits. You might experience a burst of physical energy. You're in good form for competition, whether it involves sports, games, or business, and for financial improvement efforts, although you are a little inclined to take on too much or to go to excess, so be sure what you desire is something that will serve you well. In other words, use this power wisely!
A feeling of closeness, with your own heart or with someone special, is likely to figure strongly this month. It's a good time for attracting others to you through your unique self-expression and vision.
Saturn leaves your sign and enters your solar second house on the 21st, where it will transit for the better part of three years. You'll feel a little freer, less weighed down, and more spontaneous during this cycle. Ideally, you are a more mature and balanced person after Saturn's transit to your sign, and now is the time to focus on making your life more secure. This move can bring about a feeling that a heavy weight has been lifted from your shoulders. You're likely to be more outgoing than you have been for some time. Ideally, you've built strength and balance in your life in recent years, and confidence now comes from a firmer grip on reality and what's truly possible. Note that Saturn will return to Capricorn from July 1-December 17, after which it moves on.
Getting serious about finances or facing reality regarding money may be part of the picture. This transit is about taking more control over your money, resources, or talents, which helps you to feel empowered. With Mars and Saturn meeting up in your resources sector on the last day of March, it's a strong time for examining what you're capable of doing to overcome obstacles. Consider that your life will improve as you deal with the facts and avoid living in fear of what might or might not happen. Activities that enhance your feeling of being on top of things and in charge of your life are in focus. Hard work may be involved! Following the rules makes the most sense for the time being. You're learning what's most important to you.
From the 20th, more focus on family and home life is favored. While the New Moon on the 24th occurs in a sector that rules your personal and domestic world, suggesting a quiet inward-turned period ahead, you can feel challenged to manage many different situations at once. You may sometimes feel as if you're pushing against the tides in some areas, perhaps without public sentiment on your side, but you're making opportunities for yourself, and you're also making advances in love. There can be a creative or romantic opening in the weeks following this New Moon.
Horoscope Overview for March 2020 for Aquarius:
March is a fine month for building and improving your life, dear Aquarius, at a comfortable pace. Mars continues its transit of your privacy sector until the 30th. It can be difficult, at times, to know the source of irritation or anger with this position, but restlessness doesn't have to drive your behavior. Without self-knowledge, your actions may go unnoticed or unrewarded, and you can feel less effective overall. This is, in fact, a good time to identify the real source of problems. Mars is receiving supportive aspects, helping you do so this month.
On the 8-9, intimate or financial matters can come to a head. There could be some drama with money, or it might be a time for settling debts or collecting on money owed. Take your time when it comes to making any super-important decisions. Mercury ends its retrograde, and certain blocks or delays lift. At the same time, the Full Moon brings a desire to light, and while some practical areas of your life are shrouded in mystery, you're seeing the light regarding your true feelings on what you want, helping clear a path forward. Following your heart seems to be the way to improving money matters and relationships. A sense that by getting closure on an issue, your practical world will improve is with you now.
Until the 9th, however, delays and transportation matters can be very tricky. The second half of the month is not only less chaotic, it's more empowering and joyful. Even so, take extra time for rest, as energy levels may not be up to par.
An opportunity period for your personal life, emotional orientation or outlook, family, and home is with you as March progresses. You have great initiative and motivation to overcome obstacles and to make significant changes. You're patient and strategic, and most importantly, confident.
Changes you make now tend to focus on getting rid of the non-essentials, and this ultimately reduces stress and clears your mind. There can be a strong focus on the past, and you can experience some synchronicity or good karma. There can be a healing process going on now. Putting your trust in someone can feel right and even refreshing. Some form of retreat or relaxing escape can be appropriate. Savoring moments and physically slowing yourself down can help realign or center yourself. A buried matter can emerge, and intense emotions can compel you to handle things more courageously or to put something behind you once and for all. This is an excellent time to gather up ideas and form a game plan for a future project.
On the 21st, Saturn enters your sign. Throughout this transit that lasts until July 1st and then returns from December 2020 to March 2023, you'll be gaining more maturity and restructuring your life in meaningful ways. You'll be tending to those things you've left unfinished or neglected, and you may need to retrain or learn new skills. It's a powerful period for stabilizing and strengthening key areas of your life. The focus is now on structure and firmer foundations. You're also challenged to become more responsible, mature, and self-disciplined. Along the way, you're likely to discover that you can hold your own!
Be conservative in your approach for best results with Mars and Saturn coming together in your sign on the last day of March. It's essential to have a strong sense of what you can and cannot do, not by lowering your standards, but by getting a stronger sense of reality. You're reminded to take better care of yourself, follow the rules, be thorough, and take matters step by step so that you get things right. Bringing more realism into the picture is the key to feeling empowered now.
You're more interested in reaching out, learning, and sharing from the 20th forward. The New Moon on the 24th is about your communication style, mindset, attitude, studies, and methods for getting around or connecting--a fresh start is in the offing! Saturn has just entered your sign, and you sense that you need to shape up and manage your life more efficiently. Improved transportation and communication systems can help you tremendously on this front, and now is the time to put forth the effort to make these refinements. This New Moon brings a spirit of newness to your communications, learning, and personal interests.
Horoscope Overview for March 2020 for Pisces:
March is a powerful month, first for a sense of personal impact, inspiration, and feedback, dear Pisces, and then later, for building, settling in, and finding your place. Your rulers, Jupiter and Neptune, are boosting your yearly Sun transit, and others appreciate you more so than usual. Your personality has more strength and influence, and most importantly, you're feeling more comfortable with yourself.
The 8-9 is suitable for an announcement or an unveiling. Relationship drama can occur now, and it's likely positive and eye-opening. The Full Moon brings a relationship matter to the fore. Around this time, Mercury's retrograde ends, and plans feel like they're starting to come together.
You enjoy others' company more than usual, and conversations are exceptionally open and meaningful. You may be gaining someone's trust or clearing the air and feeling better for it. Take the time to do little favors for others that boost their spirits. New ideas abound, and it's fantastic to think in bigger terms than you usually might or to get creative with original ideas and plans. You are both sensitive and enthusiastic, and this rare combination boosts your magnetism. Presenting your ideas can be especially successful after Mercury returns to Pisces, this time in direct motion, from the 16th forward.
Strong emotions can stir your desire to pursue a cause, goal, or cherished dream in March. The general atmosphere around you is lively. Some of you could be meeting exciting people with whom you'll thoroughly appreciate sharing your ideas and ideals, or there can be inspirational and motivating experiences with existing friends. Your drive to get something started or moving is active. There can be a sudden desire or courage to connect with a friend or group or to take action on something you've let slide. Don't be afraid to take the lead and put your increased charisma to good use. It's an exciting period for connecting and collaborating, particularly in the second half of March.
You're enjoying an opportunity period for communications, and you're likely to connect with others in creative or romantic ways. Your initiative is strong, and contacts are exciting--even invigorating now. Experiences seem to inspire and motivate you to be/do your best, mainly related to mental interests and projects. There can be opportunities to connect with someone special through groups, acquaintances, and networking. Things that you've previously resisted learning can suddenly become appealing and relevant. You might make connections through the internet, on the phone, or even in the neighborhood, that make you happy and boost your spirits. A creative partnership may result.
Power doesn't come from knowing all, but rather from knowing yourself and being honest with yourself, and you're absorbing this lesson through your social life this month and next.
From the 20th, you'll have more power to take charge of personal finances and matters surrounding security and comfort. The New Moon on the 24th feels exciting--you are turning over a new leaf, prepared to treat your money matters (and relationships) with fresh energy.
Even so, Saturn changing signs on the 21st is a big move, bringing this heavy planet to the background of your solar chart. This long-term transit will find you first questioning and then restructuring your faith. Saturn will transit this area of your solar chart from March 21-July 1 and then December 17, 2020-March 7, 2023. Mars makes it there on March 30th, meeting Saturn and giving you a preview of this rather strict but ultimately good-for-you energy. It's wise to take into account what you want to accomplish down the road and avoid pushing something too fast. You may need to own up to an issue that you had previously swept under the carpet or otherwise overlooked. You might need to make a personal sacrifice to help out someone else. You might feel overruled now, but you can also build quite a bit of strength from this scenario, as it can motivate you to make significant changes. The need to be patient can emerge, and self-discipline feels great.
March is a beautiful month for coming into your own, discovering your joy, and finding more meaning in your connections.
