March comes in like a Lamb but leaves like a Lion and with that it roars change into our lives. While this month has a lot of cosmic placements that promote positive realizations and influences the energy to act upon, it does encourage us to be more reclusive than social in the beginning of the month so to make way for the changes it is influencing.
On the first day of the month we are graced with a Full Moon in Virgo, which is backed up in watery placements as Venus in Pisces trines Jupiter in Scorpio. This allows for us to make our sub conscious thoughts, conscious, so we may understand the inner conversations that affect not only our emotional body, but physical as well. What we think, and what we feel, is who we become. While this influence of cosmic energy is rather pleasant, for those who try to escape from their truth, will be drug along by the Universe in order to drop the habits that masks their truths so they may face it, and transform accordingly.
Following this Moon is a Sun and Neptune trine in Pisces which encourages us to lie low and reconnect with our soul. We may be considering our soul-purpose and our place within the World. This is a good time to cancel any social gatherings so to eliminate any environmental influences which distract us from doing so. This is a time to allow our vulnerabilities to come center stage, and so writing out feelings or even meditation can be beneficial to understand ourselves all the better while taking advantage of the cosmic energy the Universe is gifting us that week.
On March 8, Jupiter goes Retrograde in Scorpio where it has been orbiting since last year. We have been graced with some intense, yet, magnetic energy in attracting things which our deepest desires have been drawn to. Now that it is going retrograde, we can take these gifts inward to understand ourselves deeper and also as Scorpio does well, transform anything within which prevents us from fully reaching for what we desire, or blocks our powers in manifesting them. This is a good time to also do as the last week required, to counsel ourselves while lying low from the social scene so we can speak to our soul.
Just a few days later on March 11 is our time to “spring forward” as Daylight Savings Time pushes time up an hour. For many, this is a rather stressful day as we lose an hour and only have a day to fully adjust to this new time setting. Make sure you set your clock back an hour before bed on Saturday night, so not to wake up feeling like you lost an hour of sleep!
On Saint Patrick’s Day, March 17, we are graced with a New Moon in Pisces which brings a double dose of Piscean energy as the Sun shares the same placement. This is a very important Moon which encourages us to dive deep within to consider what must be healed in order to make us a better person for humanity – one by one, just like a ripple effect, we have the power to shift humanity, and heal the World as we heal ourselves. The downside to this Moon is the affect it has on addicts or those who do not want to face their wounds. Escapism is likely, such as drowning our sorrows in alcohol or mind-altering substances which alter our reality and kick our Higher Selves out of our bodies. Just as in the beginning of the Month, meditation and deep soul-searching practices are favored as this is the sure-fire way to use this energy to full advantage. So, while it is a holiday which promotes drinking, we have to be careful not to go overboard and miss out on this energetic gift.
March 20 is not only the first day of Spring, and the Pagan New Year, but it is also International Astrology Day! However, all celebrations aside, just two days later on March 22 we have 2018’s first Mercury Retrograde, and in Aries nonetheless. This wreaks havoc on not only social, but also anything to do with communication. We may be prone to act more impatient and impulsive as war-hungry Aries never backs down from a fight or takes No for an answer. Difficulties on the social front are likely, but if we had taken the first 2 Moons and Jupiter’s retrograde to advantage, then we can lessen this fiery placement’s affect on us and possibly use it to our advantage.
While Mercury Retrograde doesn’t promote making any massive changes, signing contracts, or large investments, it does promote finishing what you had started, and influences the energy and drive in doing so. We can channel the Aries energy to our benefit if we cancel out the bright and shiny distractions and focus on what needs to get done in order to make room for the new.
As the month comes to an end, we are graced with a Full Moon in Libra on March 31. A few days before this balanced and loving Moon, Taurus had shifted into Venus which puts the planet of Love and Value in center stage since Venus also resides within Libra. This is not only a good time for growth in both the financial, relationship and inner worlds, but also in making peace with those we had considered enemies in the past. We are encouraged to take another look at those whom oppose us, so to understand the fusion of energy that can be born from compromise and compassion. As those who trigger us, are actually projecting things within ourselves that need to be brought into light. This is where March leaves us like a lion, roaring in that change, by provoking it through our environment and social circle. Friend, or foe, we have a lot to learn from one another, and what is gained from this, will help influence a better version of ourselves.

Taurus, you had been going through quite a lot between last year and the first few months of 2018. While you are one of the most determined, resourceful and self-sufficient signs of the zodiac, you do sometimes need a little reminding of the power you hold within to accomplish all that you need to.
You feel that peace is being restored within your World, as March gives you a major dose of comfortability and a breath of fresh air whereas you had been fighting to keep your head above water in the recent months. You can finally breathe, and with that comes a shift in perspective when learning to appreciate your recent struggles, and the pathway they had pushed you onto. March is going to gift you many opportunities to come closer to your heart and soul – it might not be as action packed as you’d like in certain aspects of your life, but doors will open that you had once thought were bolted shut.
The important message for you to remember this month, Taurus, is that while you do have much love and support around you, remaining loyal to Self above all, is what will serve you more than relying on others.

The main message for you this month, Gemini, is to slow down, and think before you act – to think rationally and logically, and then to reconsider these thoughts to ensure that you are on the right track. You have been battling some pretty tough past 6 months, and it seems March is no different, other than offering you certain insights and clues as to why things were, and why they are.
You may feel a bit more reclusive, or even rejected when it comes to the social scene and spending time with those you love. You are a social sign and need to be in communication with those who feed your mind, and your heart, but March offers you an opportunity to dive within to discover who you are, and how you can feed yourself those things.
March 17th, during the New Moon in Pisces might be a bit tiring for you in terms of your gifts of empathy when absorbing the feels of everyone around you, and so it is best for you to remain closed off during that time so to ground and reconnect with your own thoughts and feelings.

Seeing is believing, Cancer. You are a romantic and idealistic sign that will go wherever your heart is pulled to, but this month you need to stand back and really consider what your heart is telling you, and not what others are influencing upon you.
You may receive an invitation, or opportunity by someone this month and they paint it out to be all that you have dreamed. Doing your own investigate research to ensure that this is what they say it is, will better suit you than jumping into anything. Basically, look before you leap, otherwise you can potentially be disappointed and regret committing to it.
Delay any decisions this month, and take your time doing your own ground work. You have to rely on yourself and make others walk the talk before falling on every word they say. There is a potential for gossip, overexaggerating and possibly even downright lies. Don’t’ fall into the trap, but also don’t say no, as with some consideration on your own part, you can make these opportunities work in your favor

Oh, Leo… February was such a great month for you, but it seems that March has the potential to run on a different note, that is if you happen to allow the issues occurring around you to get under your thick skin. Have you heard the saying, “March comes in like a lion, and leaves like a lamb?” It is used for the weather, as March tends to be a rather windy month, and it can be switched around where the lamb comes before the lion. This is going to be true for you, and you can make the most of it as long as you don’t fall off balance because of outside forces. While the wind can blow hard, you can remain on track if your feet are planted firmly on the ground.
All is about balance, Leo. Don’t get pulled into the storm, and shout back that you are the storm! March may test you greatly, but you can ace it with the right attitude and action. There is a lot of healing that can be obtained this month, as well as positive movement, but you cannot gain this if you buckle under the pressure. Remain strong, Leo, and focus on grounding when you feel overloaded with emotion, as this will help you place things into a better perspective which will lead towards the solutions you need.
There is a major potential for growth, reconciliation or repair to relationships, in many aspects of your life if you can rise above the chaos and use this flow of energy to your advantage.

March is going to be kind to you, Virgo, and you are going to be feeling as if you are on cloud 9. Your relationships with others are nearly all on a good note, and you feel closer to the ones you love because of this. Surround yourself with good people, and you will surely feel good! While you can be a bit reclusive, March asks that you reach out and be social, and you will not regret any minute of leaving your hermit cave!
You might be planning on an event with others that involves family, or likeminded people that share common interests and goals. This is going to uplift your vibration and create memories that will last a lifetime and make you happy each time you look back.
The best thing for you, is a powerful sense of connection with those you hold close to your heart. This is a month of bonding, togetherness, and emotional happiness.

March offers you a lot, Libra, in terms of gaining insights from the past which are going to help dictate the direction of your future. You may be asked to close some doors before any new ones can be opened, because there is space that needs clearing within your heart or you can risk sabotaging something wonderful from taking form. Basically, look back, but don’t relive the past.
This month brings about a significant life change that can bring forth opportunities which you have been dreaming of, but, you must allow the past to drift away from you. Forgive whom you need to, especially yourself, and clear the air from any harboring resentments which keep you trapped within this cycle that stems from past wounds and experiences. Close the door, Libra, or remain locked inside the closet you have been trying to clear out and get lost in the dark, once again. Libras can be indecisive and sit on things for a long time before taking any action towards a decision, but you know what you must do, it’s just a matter of actually doing it

Balance is all, Scorpio. Your efforts from the past are coming through to either reward, or reprimand you. Are you happy with the investments you had made, Scorpio? Perhaps you had given too much and left yourself running on empty which is now starting to show with restrictiveness within opportunities you need to flourish. These road blocks before you, might not even be road blocks but safety cones to warn you of the dangers ahead.
The balance March speaks of, is give and take. You may receive a gift this month which is going to help and benefit you for a long time from now – and you may also be the one giving this gift to someone else. There is power in both, but you must obtain that balance within them both, if you wish to find peace and easy-access to the opportunities you want to venture down.
Nothing is standing in your way, but yourself, Scorpio. When you feel you lack what you need, give and you shall receive. I know that sounds wrong, but sometimes the restrictive forces you feel is closing off access from what you need, is actually a manifestation of the restriction you hold within from giving to others, even yourself.

You’re finally catching a much-deserved break when it comes to striking some luck! March is going to be tremendously generous to you in terms of making dreams come true and realizing the potential of things you had put into motion in the past.
Stay on task, Sagittarius, and do not deviate from your current path, as things are flowing as they should and need your added effort to ensure what you desire will manifest. You might be lucky this month in witnessing miracles, but they still need your action and effort to manifest fully.
Also, keep your ears open because news is coming your way about an opportunity which will help you advance even further, Sagittarius. You aren’t scared of a little hard work, as this may entail a lot of it, but when you know its something worth investing your time and energy into, you can be extremely successful in realizing your dreams and goals this month.

Holy cow, Capricorn, what the heck is going on this month?! You are typically a well-managed sign that puts their time and energy into things that are successful because of your ability to remain patient and strategize a full-proof plan into every step you take. However… you might be in too deep within too many projects at once that you are feeling rather scattered and out of control.
Perhaps you are trying to be the hero, or had tried to be, and are finding you had bitten off more than you can chew. You hate to admit failure and will remain miserable within a situation that doesn’t offer what you need, just because you also fear to fail as well. Well, each failure is a stepping stone towards a higher awareness and better pathway to success – you need to consider this a learning experience and wash your hands clean of situations or relationships that leave you feeling more restrictive than successful.
The main message for you this month is to ensure your actions are backed with honor, integrity and that you are investing into things that will serve you in the long-run, as well as those who are involved as well. As you do this, others will respond to you positively which will help open the doors you need and close the ones you don’t.

Oh Aquarius, you might be wondering why the cosmos have been so tough on you in these recent months, and the answer is: you need to face your shadow. You are being set up to win at this game of cyclic lessons and understanding of Self, but, you are one to rebel against what you are told to do, and so that is why things have been much harder for you.
Someone from your past is going to make a reappearance this month, and while this is met with positivity on your part, this isn’t happening by accident and is meant to trigger your past, so you can finally release and integrate what keeps you from bypassing these levels of experiences you still feel stuck in.
The key for you this month is the benefit from the lessons you obtained from the past and to flow with the new structure placed out for you by the cosmos – any further rebellion on your part will only bring about more restriction to the things you want and desire.

Love is on your brain, Pisces. Also, Happy birthday! This month is going to be extra especially kind to you, not just because it’s your birthday month, but because you truly deserve it! However, that doesn’t mean that all is going to be just fine, but that you will be gifted opportunities for advancement, as well as insights to resolve any issues that surface.
You are a lover, and a gentle soul, and with that you are sentimental and sensitive. This makes you a compassionate lover with a heart of gold, and this month allows you to work this magic in the hearts of others whom you want attention and love from.
The key for you is to listen to your heart, and to follow where it leads, but to also not get overly wrapped up in the moment, and to consider where this passionate and inspiring burst of energy may lead you.
You are on a quest this month, Pisces, one of love, and if you act accordingly, you can create something wonderful and lasting from this as well.
