March Comes Under Saturn’s Spell

658

This year is going to be a big one for Saturn. On Tuesday, March 7, it enters Pisces, which coincides with the Virgo full moon. This is a significant change, as Saturn first entered Aquarius in March 2020. Its movement into Pisces is a major event, signalling a shift in our responsibilities, limitations, and how we structure our lives.

The Virgo full moon happening in the sign opposite Pisces on this day brings a spotlight to the ways we show up in service to others, while Saturn in Pisces reminds us of our duties to the collective. The problems that you may have been facing personally and collectively over the last three years are resolving as new challenges arise. How you take care of yourself and others throughout these changes is what matters the most.

 

A Word From Rachel

Sometimes, it takes us hitting rock bottom to surrender our fight for control. That moment we let go of the grip is when the magic happens. Something shifts for the better, but we can’t always see it at the time. I’ve had a recent experience of surrender and walked through challenging life circumstances with clients this past month as well.

Saturn and Pluto are at the last degrees of their respective signs (Saturn in Aquarius and Pluto in Capricorn). They’re both shifting gears this month, and we could see upsets, breakdowns, and breakthroughs. A seismic change is on the horizon. Anytime an outer planet changes signs, it starts a longer cycle.

VENUS CONJUNCT JUPITER

We start the month with Venus meeting up with Jupiter in Aries. When these two planets come together, our eyes are bigger than our stomachs, and we have big feelings of love. But Aries is the warrior sign, which can make love a battlefield. Listen to my full take on the subject in this Astrology Hub conversation…

SATURN IN PISCES

The planet of discipline and commitment, Saturn, enters the mystical sign of Pisces, asking us to lean into our spiritual disciplines and work for enlightenment—no more pseudo-spirituality or toxic positivity. We’re getting real with our understanding of how spirit works in our lives and are willing to dedicate ourselves to our growth journeys.

Pisces is the sign related to these themes

Healing    Hidden Truth   Magic   Illusions   Arts

Healthcare   Medicine and Drugs   Fantasy   Movies

We’ll likely see regulations, laws, and systems set into place for these aspects of our lives and culture. This month kicks it off when Saturn enters Pisces on March 7.

FULL MOON

The Virgo Full Moon falls on March 7 as well, and it’s a day to mark off on your calendar, as it could be action-packed. The exact lunation happens with Saturn still in Aquarius. It’s turning over a new leaf, and this Full Moon could feel that way, too. The Sun and Moon form a t-square with Mars (still out of bounds), meaning we don’t know how to focus our passion, anger, or intense emotions. It’s a good day to lean on healthy outlets for stress. It’s also helpful to have a project on which to focus, like cleaning the house or redesigning your website.

JUPITER CONJUNCT CHIRON IN ARIES

On March 11, Jupiter meets up with Chiron in Aries, making this a time to glean meaning from our painful experiences from the past and commit to service. We need to feel it all. And the emotions could be as big as the transformation on the other side.

After that, Mars forms a square aspect with Neptune on March 14, and we have strong Neptune influences from March 14-16, making those days a little foggy and unclear. We’re feeling our way through as Mercury conjoins Neptune and squares Mars on March 16.

EQUINOX

On March 20, the Sun enters Aries to start the astrological new year. We’re moving forward! But we need to watch our steps. With Mars out of bounds, we may be a little more gung-ho about our plans for the future. Give yourself permission to try something new, and let yourself change your mind. All planets are going direct, and we are ready to act. The Aries New Moon happens on March 21, adding to the overall energy of the equinox. It’s a good time for intention-setting and gearing up for a new beginning.

PLUTO IN AQUARIUS

Pluto enters Aquarius on March 23. Are you ready for a revolution? The last time Pluto was in the sign of the water bearer was during the Enlightenment period, which ushered in a new mindset prioritizing reason and individualism. This ingress shows us what themes will emerge over the next 20 years.

Pluto in Aquarius encourages us to unite under the banner of democratic ideals, not just as individuals but as citizens doing their part to create a better place for everyone. The power of community is real, and now more than ever, we need to tap into it for the collective benefit. We can use this new understanding of power to make meaningful changes in our community and move towards a more vibrant, vibrant, equitable future.

 

Your Horoscopes by Rachel Lang

ARIES (MARCH 21 – APRIL 19):

March forward, Aries! It is the most action-packed month of the year and kicks off your season. Be fierce in asserting boundaries so that no outside forces can distract you from your goals. Unsure or confused? Take it to the source in prayer and meditation. Saturn, the planetary father figure, advances into sensitive Pisces on March 7. From now until 2025, prioritize your ritual and spiritual practices. It’s the most important thing you can do. All life details will fall into place, but you’re learning to trust, which means letting go of control.

Early in the month, assess your spiritual disciplines and rituals. Are they helping you grow? If not, it may be time to make changes and explore new practices. Remember, everything in your life can be a spiritual practice with the proper framework, even picking up groceries. Try this – each time you pick something off a shelf, imagine the many people who participated in the growing, manufacturing, and selling of that item. Thank them all in a gratitude practice. The Virgo Full Moon on March 7 inspires dreams and visions.

On March 20, the Sun enters your sign and ushers in a new astrological year. Celebrate with friends and know many of your relationships are changing because you’re growing at an accelerated rate. You have experiences to gather, and the New Moon on March 21 shows a glimpse of those changes.

Pluto moves into Aquarius on March 23, and your vision for the future could dramatically shift. With your ruling planet, Mars, entering Cancer on March 25, remember you don’t have to act on those new insights. Because Pluto moves so slowly, you have time. Twenty years, in fact! Enjoy each step in the journey.

TAURUS (APRIL 20 – MAY 20)

Are you ready for the good news? Stern Saturn is finally easing its pressure after two and a half years. As it moves into Pisces, you can relax, knowing you’ve reached the mountain’s summit. You’re in a winning position. Has it been hard? Only when you’ve resisted change. Have you grown? Yes, in all ways. On March 7, pop your favourite sparkling beverage and toast your accomplishments.

Pluto moves into Aquarius on March 23. It’s time to be more powerful with your words and fearless in your work. Think of the lion as a metaphor. They wait quietly until the time is right and then pounce. You have a keen sense of timing this month.

Though you may be ready for a change, take steady steps forward. The Virgo Full Moon shines a guiding light, helping restore vision in a circumstance that has been hazy. A conflict with a child could resolve under the newfound awareness. Be open to seeing from different sides, especially from March 14-16, when Neptune’s influence makes it hard to differentiate resistance from intuition. Remember, resistance usually has a more edgy tone!

Venus enters your sign on March 16 with a dramatic flair that excites your heart. Love inspires new words after March 25, and maybe even a new language. How can you express the feelings in your heart? Poetry, music, and dance. Lead with creativity and play.

On March 20, the Sun enters Aries, and the Aries New Moon motivates you to tidy up past business. You could find lost things or discover something that’s been kept hidden. It’s the start of springtime and an astrological new beginning. What will you let blossom in your life?

GEMINI (MAY 20 – JUNE 20):

Saturn, the boss of our solar system, is moving into Pisces on March 7, kicking off a two-and-a-half-year cycle of career growth. Everything’s happening all at once, and you’ve got work to do. Go at a steady pace and delegate, or else you’re headed for burnout. Mars is moving through your sign until March 25, and it’s out of bounds, which means your passion needs specific outlets. Channel your fire into exercise, self-improvement, or starting something new. Seize the day!

The Virgo Full Moon on May 7 may rouse intense emotions and turn you inward for self-reflection. It’s a time to step back and focus on your inner world. You’re braced for change but need to know the next moves. It’s okay to question; doubt and faith run on a continuum.

On March 20, the Sun shines in Aries, and the New Moon on March 21 lights fireworks in your social life. You could feel relationships are in flux, and new friendships are forming to turn on a light in dark areas of your life. You’re about to see pathways you never imagined possible.

Pluto moves into Aquarius on March 23, previewing what’s to come in the next 20 years. This transit opens the doorway for publishing, directing, or higher education. You’re learning the power of knowledge. So, allow every question to lead to a discovery. With Mercury in fiery Aries after March 18, your mind could do somersaults thinking of solutions to problems. Talk your way through challenges that arise. As an air sign, you need an external way to process what’s happening on the inside. Use a lifeline and call a friend.

CANCER (JUNE 21 – JULY 22):

March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb. As a child in a freezing Midwest February, hearing that phrase brought the relief of knowing we were on winter’s home stretch. Warm weather was headed our way. This phrase takes on a whole new meaning for you because Pluto, the coldest planet of all, is finally starting its transition out of your opposite sign on March 23. Bring on the warmth!

In 2008, Pluto entered Capricorn, starting a cycle of personal growth through relationships. You’ve seen all facets of yourself in love. Now, you’re ready to relax and settle into the ordinariness of stability. Sigh. It’s nice not to be braced on the edge of your seat waiting for another tragedy. You’ll feel unsteady when Pluto dips back into your sign on June 11 for a few months, but you’re moving out of a significant cycle. Peaceful times lie ahead.

The Virgo Full Moon on March 7 highlights communication. Are you holding back from saying something on your mind? Let the Moon inspire graceful words. It’s a month for learning, teaching, and speaking, especially before March 18. Mercury is in the heart of the Sun on March 17, making it an excellent day for business. With Saturn moving into Pisces on March 7, you’re on a two-year fast track with your career and heading for a new career peak. This month, pay attention to inner urges.

Clouds shade your vision from March 14-16. Learn to embrace uncertainty. It keeps us open-minded and creative. Mars enters your sign as a motivational force on March 25. Notice what opportunities arise around the Aries New Moon on the 21st.

LEO (JULY 23 – AUGUST 22):

As a fixed sign, Leo, you are a loyal friend, committed partner, and dedicated employee. This month, you feel tiny tremors of change in your life. One of the biggest challenges is remaining steadfast when the ground beneath you shifts. The answer lies in your mindset. If you find yourself complaining or telling the same story over and over, pause that track. Pluto is moving into your opposite sign on March 23, asking you to tell a new story or focus on the aspects of your life that are open and free.

Saturn, the planet of structure, moves into mystical Pisces on March 7, kicking off a two-and-a-half-year cycle of spiritual exploration. It’s an excellent time to join a spiritual community or focus on adopting a spiritual discipline, like Transcendental Meditation.

Saturn’s influence can help you organize your finances. The Virgo Full Moon on March 7 offers grounded support. Lean on the advice of friends or experts in finance to make the most of this influence.

On March 20, the Sun moves into Aries. You will be in your element and ready for a new adventure. All planets are going direct, and you’re unstoppable. Keep that in mind on March 21 when the Aries New Moon awakens intentions you thought might never come to pass. Be open to surprises, and the universe will not disappoint.

Venus is in Aries until March 16. You and your partner could take a spring break trip for relaxation and fun at the end of the month. As a Leo, play is so essential for you. Keep your love life light and enjoyable throughout the month, and on March 30, step outside to feel free.

VIRGO (AUGUST 23 – SEPTEMBER 22):

Welcome to the most dynamic, action-packed month of the entire year! Pluto, the planet of transformation, dips into Aquarius on March 23, waking up dormant potential in our communities. You’re answering a new call to be bold in sharing your gifts with the world, starting with local engagement.

The month starts with a Full Moon in your sign on March 7. You may be wanting to share your creative writing, pitch an idea, or do more public speaking. Seek opportunities at the beginning of the month. Saturn, the planet of career focus, enters Pisces that day, starting a two-year cycle of slow, steady progress toward your goals. Use discernment when making decisions this month, as commitment is a keyword.

Saturn’s influence highlights relationships, and you could become more aware of any cracks in the foundation of your partnerships. It’s time for repair and reconstruction, which could mean healing rifts through talk therapy. It could also mean moving temporarily or fixing things in your physical space. Your mind may be more analytical about life in general, especially between March 14-17, when Neptune’s influence clouds your vision, making it harder to know where to go.

On March 20, the Sun enters Aries and starts a new season. The Aries New Moon on March 21 motivates you to clear obstacles from your path and overcome financial worries. If you get caught in a mental spiral of doubt or drama, exercise to shift your mindset. It’s a time to focus our collective imagination on a peaceful vision for the future. You are participating in that co-creation in living your present-day life.

LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 22- OCTOBER 22):

Mythological Mars was the god of war but was also responsible for protecting crops and livestock. Inherent within the myth of Mars is the understanding that if a community’s basic needs aren’t being met, there will not be peace. Several planets are in your opposite sign, and you might feel extra protective this month. Are others respecting you? Are your needs being met? If not, the fierce influence of Mars can help reinforce your boundaries, especially from March 14 – 16.

Saturn, the planet of commitment, enters Pisces on March 7, starting a two-year cycle of foundation-building. You understand your potential, have a general sense of direction, and now it’s time to enact a plan. Take one step after another, even if it feels slow. The Virgo Full Moon on March 7 could inspire a health breakthrough, allowing you to realize a mind/body connection. Awareness is sometimes the first step toward healing.

The most significant transit of the year happens this month as Pluto enters Aquarius on March 23. Aquarius is the sign of groups and community, and for several months, you’ll likely learn of leadership opportunities. You’re accessing new resources of power that stem from your creativity. Professional success this month depends upon your willingness to access your Mars and protect your time, resources, and energy.

It is an excellent month to form new business partnerships or fall in love with Jupiter shining in Aries. The Sun enters Aries on March 20 at the equinox, a day with equal light and darkness. How can you be more accepting of the parts of you that lurk in the shadows? Your call to radical self-love peaks on March 21 with the Aries New Moon.

SCORPIO (OCTOBER 23 – NOVEMBER 21):

Springtime starts in the Northern Hemisphere on March 20 with the Sun’s entrance into Aries, the sign of the pioneering warrior. What new buds would you like to burst open in your life? It’s a season of transformation when butterflies burst free from their cocoons. You are blossoming, too. Saturn, the planet of hard work, has been in a challenging position for you, but on March 7, it enters Pisces and eases some of the burdens you’ve held for the past two and half years.

On that same day, the Virgo Full Moon helps you glimpse a new vision for the future. Invite others to share your vision, aligning yourself with potential collaborators and partners. You don’t have to work alone – you can belong to a tribe.

Your vision gets cloudy from March 14-17 as transits to Neptune indicate confusion about an important topic. The uncertainty will feel less intense after March 20, when the Sun enters Aries. This fire sign feels like a wave of motivation, moving you to fight through resistance. Can you relax when you fear by loving the parts you have the most to lose? Let Mars be your champion as it moves into Cancer on March 25.

On March 23, Pluto makes its grand entrance into Aquarius. What are the Aquarian ideals? The Fifth-Dimension musical group said it best, understanding, sympathy, and the mind’s liberation. Aquarius wants to blow our minds open so that we can see from a whole new perspective. That shift is happening in your home life and with family relationships.

Springtime means Spring Fever. As the season changes, you could feel feistier than usual and ready for romance, especially after Venus enters Taurus on March 16.

SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 22 – DECEMBER 21):

On March 20, the equinox brings us into a new season! Over the past several months, you may have had moments of darkness or doubt. This month, you gain a better context for those dark moments by shining light to see what’s hidden in the shadows. When you neutralize the fearful emotions, you allow more light to glow from within. Life’s path seems more like a hero’s journey than a windy trail in the dark forest. With a little extra luck this month, you manifest more than you can imagine.

On March 7, Saturn enters Pisces, and much of your focus will be on your home and family for the next couple of years. If you wish to renovate, consider starting the project before March 16. At the beginning of the month, the influence of Venus adds sophistication to the design process and ease with the creativity involved. A move is a likely possibility, too, with the planet of commitment shining over real estate matters.

It is a great month to generate momentum for professional pursuits. You know the contribution you’d like to make, but the next steps could seem foggy from March 14-17. Remember, letting go of projects or ideas that never came to fruition is okay. Clarify your intentions after March 17. All planets are moving direct, and not much is stopping you. On March 23, Pluto enters Aquarius, adding dimension and depth to your ideas and empowering your words.

Your love life is a highlight for the month. The Aries New Moon on March 21 is a peak period for heart-to-heart connections and game-changing talks.

CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22 – JANUARY 19):

Forest bathing has been trending in my world. Have you tried it? If not, I recommend it to you this month. With several significant transits culminating at one time, you could feel tumult and the thrill of adventure. Excitement and anxiety stand so close together. On March 7, let the Virgo Full Moon lead you outside.

In the Northern Hemisphere, we’re entering springtime, and new life abounds. You’re blossoming open in new ways, too, discovering new ways to be known. Practical knowledge, leadership, and raw talent; with those personality traits, imagine what you can create. Draw people into your life to assist. Co-operators are standing by under Saturn’s guardianship.

Saturn enters Pisces on March 7, signalling the start of a two-year chapter of growth through relationships. Your friendships might get a reboot, or some acquaintances could fall away. Notice when you no longer resonate with a friend you’ve known for a long time. We can outgrow friendships, and you’ve been on a fast track to personal growth since 2008.

You’re in a new cycle now, and Pluto moves out of your sign, dipping into Aquarius from March 23 – June 11. For this brief period, you’re learning important lessons in power, and those insights come through financial turning points. Grounding practices could be helpful at this time. What makes you feel alive in your body? Do more of those things.

After March 16, your attention shifts to the more romantic aspects of your life. At the end of the month, look for Feng Shui tips to improve your love corner, especially if you are single. Changing the energy of your space could improve your love life.

AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20 – FEBRUARY 18):

It’s the dawning of the Age of Aquarius. I hope the Fifth-Dimension song is playing in your mind right now. You’ll need to hear it over and over this month. It’s your time. Pluto, the planetary change artist, enters your sign on March 7, briefly appearing as a preview of the next 20 years. We are moving into a new paradigm and living those Aquarian ideals of community, collaboration, innovation, and oneness. Can you feel the groundswell of change beneath you? The world needs your wisdom and knowledge.

Be here, now. This month places a focus on finances, and your career is a highlight, especially on March 17, when Mercury meets the Sun in Pisces. You could entertain options for career changes that better align with your values and goals. Jupiter in Aries helps your words inspire and persuade others. Don’t shy away from using your voice.

On March 20, the Sun moves into Aries, and Mars moves into Cancer on March 25. Be careful not to scatter your energy in too many different directions. Think about your top priorities, and act accordingly. Giving too much of your time, energy, or resources will only frustrate you in the long run. Yes, you want to help, but it’s okay to put your needs first. The Aries New Moon on March 21 is perfect for a gathering with friends, promoting a book, or celebrating an accomplishment.

The most significant transit of the year is Pluto’s entrance into your sign on March 23. It is a once-in-a-lifetime transit. Over the next 20 years, you’ll learn valuable lessons in power that will touch every aspect of your life.

PISCES (FEBRUARY 19 – MARCH 20):

Happy birthday!! What a year it will be with Saturn, the planet of commitment, entering your sign. When I think of Saturn, I picture some of my high school teachers – the ones who gave hard tests and gruelling assignments because they wanted us to learn and excel. Saturn’s like that. It pushes us to excel. Over the next two years, you’ll learn more than you dreamed and grow to reach new levels of self-understanding.

We start the month with the Sun and Mercury in your sign. What are your intentions for the coming year? The Full Moon on March 7 clarifies those goals, helping you identify what deterrents may be in the way. We’re in a massive transition with Pluto and Saturn moving into new signs this month, and you don’t need to dwell on distractions. Use your power to create opportunities.

Your creative potential is at an all-time high early in the month as the Sun moves close to Neptune around March 15. What is your biggest dream? To make it happen, seek out a tribe of supportive friends with whom you can collaborate, brainstorm, and celebrate successes. Consider joining a mastermind group. Things could seem foggy in the middle of the month, clearing up as the Sun enters Aries on March 20. Prioritize finances with the New Moon on March 21.

We start the month with the planet of relationships in your sign until March 6, and your birthday celebration could involve romance. This month, investing energy, time, and resources in yourself will help you attract the kind of love you want. You deserve to love and be loved in return.
