This is an unusually poignant month for you, Aires, with lots of room for introspective imaginings and for creative internal solutions to any ongoing issues that you choose to address. Your strong outer world presence during the final week of February has also been dramatically intertwined with mystical ideas from beyond the physical plane. With Mercury currently in retrograde motion, you are pulled toward a self-reflective framework, attempting to see farther into where your work in the world is leading, and to what extent it matches your sincerest values. This is a time of deep spiritual longings. You are subject to powerful intuitional realizations and you might be tempted to ignore them, silently rooting for what you consciously know, the rational worldview vetted by consensus thinking; however this is not the time for that kind of thinking alone. You win when you can admit the strange notions and valuations that come to you straight from deep unconscious forces, and remain open to following them wherever they may lead.

The month begins with a First Quarter Moon in Gemini, on March 2nd, highlighting your curiosity and propensities for learning – although in an almost entirely self-reflective mode with Mercury still retrograding through your soul-sector. Venus is also still traveling through your sign which could be both a blessing and a curse depending on your current workload, because you will want to relax rather than bear down. Your ruler Mars is in Capricorn, which is fantastic for getting work done and staying focused. However, with Venus, the planet of beauty and luxury, in your sign to begin the month, you could also feel like giving yourself a break. The secret to the first week of March is finding the right blend of work and pleasure.
Venus enters her home sign of Taurus on March 4th, and will be traveling here, in your house of money, for the entire month. There are two potential scenarios with Venus here: you make more money or you spend more money. You could be generating financial opportunities while also having more expenses. Venus approaching her conjunction with Uranus, still in early Taurus, could indicate unexpected financial fluctuations as well. Any way you look at this, March is a good time to get a handle on your spending habits and be mindful of wasteful ones. Mercury still retrograde will be moving out of Pisces and back into Aquarius on the same day. Mercury was here at the beginning of February and there could be an echo of things that came up a month ago. It could also be that something comes full circle and can finally be laid to rest.
The Full Moon on March 9th takes place in the sign of Virgo while the Sun in Pisces is in a conjunction with Neptune. This Full Moon brings an emphasis on your mind/body connection, casting her light on your good, and bad habits. Neptune and the Sun currently traveling in Pisces in your 12th house could highlight some wishful thinking on your part. Pisces season can also represent a time when your inner workings, your unconscious, or shadows become obvious. The few days surrounding this Full Moon could be overwhelming for those of you who do not have a good handle on their anxieties. Neptune in Pisces can make us lose our grasp on the tangible. The Full Moon in Virgo could highlight all the disparate elements that need to be put back together and everything that still needs to be accomplished. The best strategy for these few days is to tackle one task at a time and stay present. Handle your stress as it arises mindfully. The tendency could be to scatter yourself and then feel overwhelmed by responsibilities. Mercury stations direct in the sign of Aquarius on the evening of the Full Moon; information could come to light that supports your progress especially with the Sun in Pisces coming into a supportive sextile with Jupiter in Capricorn a few days later.
The Sun enters the sign of Aries on March 19th this year, signalling the first day of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere. There will be a lot of momentum building in the second half of the month. Mercury is direct again, the Sun is now traveling in it’s exalted place, and most significantly Mars, the ruler of Aries, will be in a conjunction with Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn while squaring Eris in Aries. If you are looking for potency and power to move mountains, look no further than the weeks following the Equinox. This is an action-packed few days that carry tremendous drive to get things done.
On March 21st, Saturn enters Aquarius until July for a quick dip before it officially enters Aquarius on December 17th for the next two years. For you, Aries, Saturn entering Aquarius should bring some relief since it’s been squaring your sign for many months. By the end of 2020 you will have reached a certain level of mastery in connection with the transit of Saturn in Capricorn. This process has been occurring especially in the part of your life that deals with your place in the world, your career, and your vocational pursuit. If things have felt slow moving or difficult in that department, you will start to understand why this period was necessary in order to refine your goals.
The New Moon in Aries on March 24th is YOUR New Moon of the year. Your ruler Mars is still tightly conjunct Pluto in Capricorn at the time of the New Moon indicating that a powerful regenerative current is running under the surface. Efforts and hard work will be required to get where you want to go. You might also have to let go of certain elements of your life in order to move ahead. The New Moon squaring the Nodal Axis shows that you might have to contend with initial resistance with a new project or idea, but anything of significance in our lives usually comes at a cost. If it were too easy then where would the fun be?
