The March 2023 horoscope is here – and what a month it promises to be! We associate March with the coming of spring and the sign of Pisces. It’s a transitional month; it will flip from winter to spring – and back again – several times before we can safely assume it’s okay to put our winter woollens back in the closet, press, wardrobe – or wherever you keep them. And astrologically, this is a transitional month too – and not just because Pisces is a mutable sign.
This month sees some major astrological shifts. Mercury starts the month in Aquarius and ends it in Aries. Venus shifts from Aries to Taurus. They move rapidly, so there’s nothing unusual about any of that. But this is where it gets more interesting; Mars shifts from Gemini to Cancer in the final week of March. And that’s major because Mars has been in Gemini since August 21st 2022. By the time it makes its ingress into Cancer, Mars will have been in Gemini f0r seven months; this is one sign change we are definitely going to notice.
Mars is, however, small fry when we look at the next two major changes. On March 8th, Saturn moves into Pisces. Saturn’s journey through Aquarius is over (until the next time – about 30 years away) and that will have major implications both in our personal lives and for the world in which we live. The final change is, I suspect, going to be the most significant. Pluto makes its first ingress into Aquarius on March 24th. Whatever happens over the next few months will be like the trailer to the main feature. Be warned…
So, how is all of this going to affect you? As usual, you can discover the answer to that question by reading the March 2023 horoscope for either your sun sign, your rising sign – or both of them.
March 2023 Horoscope: Aries
The first week of the month sees a major realignment in the way you organise your life. The Full Moon in Virgo brings something to a head – and this may involve your health and wellbeing, your working life or your daily routines. Things must change – as Saturn, the planet of restriction, moves into your blind spot. Saturn here tells me that you may be making life much more difficult for yourself than is necessary. You may be refusing to admit your mistakes or refusing offers of help or refusing to admit that you need to take a break from the pressures of the past few months.
Mars, has been messing with your head since late last summer. There have been arguments, impulsive decisions, a few reversals and a lot of feeling ‘busy’ – even if you’ve also felt you were going nowhere. All of that is about to change. Mars moves into your comfort zone – and that makes things a lot more personal. There’s a lot of energy that could be best directed towards getting your life on a sound footing; touch base with things that really matter to you – anything that brings you peace and stability is well starred. The New Moon will help you make a fresh start and pull you in the right direction.
March 2023 Horoscope: Taurus
Something comes to a head in the first week of the month – and it’s concerned with your personal satisfaction. Whatever form it takes, something is going to push you to get your act together – and it may involve your friends – or lack of them. I’m not accusing you of being a hermit, but if life has been less than sociable recently, perhaps you need to look in the mirror and ask yourself why. That may be the issue for some of you, but the opposite may hold true; sometimes we need to avoid going along with the crowd. Focusing on the things that you enjoy may be the message early this month.
This may be a necessity rather than a choice, as Mars has been running riot through your bank account since last summer. For a variety of reasons, cash has been racing out of your hands at an alarming rate. By the end of the month, this trend comes to a close and the opportunity presents itself to stabilise the situation – though it may not seem like it at the time, especially as Pluto signals a major upheaval in your career zone. Be prepared for some sharp words and home truths. The New Moon may cause you to retreat inwards – but finding a restful space may be a difficult task. Take that time out – a fresh start is on its way.
March 2023 Horoscope: Gemini
A combination of the New Moon, and Saturn’s move into Pisces around the same time, exposes some tensions between your inner stability and your ambitions. You need to operate from a stable base and the way to achieve that is to put more effort into your working life. Whatever you do, this month you are going to have to work hard – and be seen to do so. However, there is the chance you will be recognised as someone who is an ‘authority’ on something – so that hard work may pay off. ‘Coming home’ may represent feeling a sense of stability that you haven’t enjoyed for a while.
One reason for that may have been the presence of Mars in your sign for so long. Mars is excitable and impulsive – and as you’re the nervous type, you may have been feeling strung out for the past seven months. By the end of this month, that feeling fades. Direct your energy towards bolstering your resources and maximising your talents; it could pay off in spades. It’s time for you to define your future direction – and leave the past behind. Pluto is going to leave you in no doubt that you need to look at life from a different perspective – the New Moon in Aries is also going to fire you in that direction.
March 2023 Horoscope: Cancer
The Full Moon shines its light on your mind and communications this month – and it brings something to a culmination. In the sign of Virgo, your focus will be on making something work – so if you’ve been trying to organise some event, or bring a discussion to a conclusion, expect to achieve your aim by the end of the first week of the month. Saturn moving into Pisces is also going to keep you focused on some future event. Making things happen is what you have to do during march – and it’s about the planning and execution. You need to keep your eyes on both the big picture and the granular detail this month.
As the month progresses, you’ll feel as though life has turned a corner. However, it’s not going to be a straightforward process – if you want to do something well, you had better do it yourself, as being in control of events is always better than being at the mercy of them. Fortunately, there are a couple of things in your favour. First, Mars moving into your sign gives you a real energy boost. If there’s something you need to do, there is nothing going to get in your way. Second, the New Moon in Aries is going to prompt you to be at the top of your game – you may be the force to be reckoned with!
March 2023 Horoscope: Leo
This month Leo, it’s about the money – or it feels that way as the month begins. The Full Moon in Virgo shines on the resources sector of your chart, so over the coming weeks you may find you need to make the best use of the resources you have at your disposal. That could be money – or it could be your own talents and skills. There are many ways in which you may need to be resourceful – and that includes emotionally too. The issue of self-reliance may be a significant one this month. Saturn will bring a reality check; if you’ve been over reliant on other people’s resources, they may no longer be available to you.
The March 2023 horoscope suggests this may not be the easiest month for you. As the month progresses, there are significant changes in your relationships – of all kinds – and when Mars changes signs you may feel some frustration at first. Your energies may be best used to reflect and research; this will enable you to look at life from a new perspective by the end of the month. The New Moon in Aries sows the seeds for your new direction – and a fresh start that will push your life into new areas. Go with that – and don’t be afraid to embrace change.
March 2023 Horoscope: Virgo
The first week in March sees the Full Moon in your sign – and the March 2023 horoscope puts the focus on you; how do you see yourself? Are you the person you want to be? This comes into focus at the same time as Saturn enters your relationship sector – and makes you look at your relationships – of all kinds – in a more realistic light. It’s a month when the word ‘commitment’ may have significance. It’s also a time when you may feel limited by some of your involvements – though that may prompt you to work hard at resolving any issues. Some of you may also spend time away from your partner – especially for work purposes.
However, as the month progresses, a change of emphasis becomes apparent. You may be having to cope with an upheaval of some kind.It may affect your health and wellbeing, but it may simply require you to overhaul or reappraise your usual routines to accommodate a significant change in your lifestyle. Mars will enable you to focus on your long term objectives – and begin to approach them in a new way. You may even replace your old goals with new ones. You are big on self-improvement; the New Moon in Aries signals it’s time to start a new phase in life – and leave the old one behind.
March 2023 Horoscope: Libra
In your March 2023 horoscope, the Full Moon shines on the house of secrets. Something may come to light that impacts on you emotionally or psychologically – but it may not have anything to do with you in a direct sense. Alternatively, you may become aware of how your own unconscious beliefs or actions undermine your own effectiveness. If that’s so, Saturn’s shift into your house of work, routines, health and wellbeing will help you to work at getting your life into better shape. Sometimes a moment of realisation is the prompt that you need to get on with the job of making your life work more efficiently.
That suggests March is going to be a productive month for you – and when Mars changes signs, you will benefit from an energy boost in your career sector. However, Mars is volatile, so it’s better to focus on your ambitions rather than have a row with your boss. Pluto’s big move is going to transform your motivation; you get more out of life if you approach it positively and creatively – and for the next few months you may get a sense of what that means. The New Moon in Aries also captures that positivity and places it in your partnership zone; if you want to start a new relationship, now may be the time…
March 2023 Horoscope: Scorpio
The Full Moon in Virgo shines on your social life – and your social conscience – and this month it may be about making things work. If you’ve not been clear about your life ‘s direction then a social issue may prompt you to become allied with a particular cause or campaign. You may feel you have skills and talents that are going to waste – and it may be a creative use of your time to bring your gifts to a wider audience. You may feel nervous about doing so, but what’s the downside? Working to your strengths is always a pleasure – and you may benefit from aligning your work ethic with your natural talents.
The March 2023 horoscope is about change – and it affects you in several ways. Pluto is going to transform your home and family life; the big changes may not happen until next year, but now is the time to start creating a stable and secure base that will enable you to weather any future storms; there will be significant changes in your domestic sector in the months ahead. So, use your Mars energy to get a new perspective on life. When Mars changes signs, you may feel restless, but you may also feel empowered because your world has become a bigger place. Use the New Moon to drive that overdue change in your lifestyle.
March 2023 Horoscope: Sagittarius
The March 2023 horoscope sees the Full Moon shine on your career sector, and with Saturn shifting to the base of your chart, there is a real push for you to make security a reality this month. What happens in one part of our lives has an impact everywhere else; use this time to either make yourself secure by attending to your career options in a grown-up and realistic way, or accept that your options are going to be limited if you don’t. The message is clear; you can’t expect life to be secure unless you take full responsibility for the decisions that you hope will make it so. Responsibility is going to be a big word this month.
As March progresses, the ‘march of change’ will gather momentum. Mars moves signs late in the month and this moves your energies from partnership concerns to making big decisions about how to move life forwards. When we move on, we always leave something behind – whether it’s a relationship or some other aspect of your being – it’s time to move on. You’ll get a foretaste of the mental transformation that Pluto is about to produce: you may need to revisit a few ideas – and analyse your thoughts – to better understand them. The New Moon will sow the seeds of the new you that will emerge from this process.
March 2023 Horoscope: Capricorn
The Full Moon lights up the sector of your chart that deals with long distance travel – though you may not be travelling anywhere this month, as Saturn shifts into you sector governing connections and mobility. There is a message here – confusing as it may seem – and it’s to do with the shifts in perspective that sometimes occur when we have to focus the mind on one particular issue – and that may be the message that resonates most with you during March. A reality check – and some important notifications – may be something you need to deal with this month. The Full Moon may help you to work out what’s going on.
The March 2023 horoscope suggests profound change this month – and for you, it’s in the area of resources. This can include your income – but it can include emotional, physical and material resources too. You may be working out what you need – and what you can do without – and that may involve some lively discussions with your partner. Your relationships will be active this month – and some of you may want to move a particular relationship forwards. The New Moon starts the process of becoming settled and comfortable – your focus will turn inward – and home family and domestic life will move in a new direction.
March 2023 Horoscope: Aquarius
The March 2023 horoscope begins with me looking at the Full Moon – and for you it shows the focus is on leaving the past behind. This is a month of big change – and though you’re future oriented, you’re also stubborn. However, fate may lend a hand by leaving you in no doubt that things will not be the same as before. Saturn, moving into your house of resources, may make you feel as though you need to conserve what you have, as your future options are limited. The truth is, you may need to be careful, but you don’t need to be scared of hard work – it may be your best asset right now.
The big changes fall into place at the end of the month. The New Moon in Aries is in the house of the mind – and this speeds up your thought processes. Be careful you don’t get mental burn out as this could be an issue – as could a few arguments. Fighting your corner may be the direction you need to go. You’re likely to be energetic and lose patience with those who don’t seem to be able to get their act together. Use your energy to sort out a few problems, but be aware that you could be seen as having a ruthless streak. Cut others some slack; you may need their support one day.
March 2023 Horoscope: Pisces
Th March 2023 horoscope sees your month begin with a focus on relationships of all kinds. There may be a few relational issues that come to a head early in the month, but with Saturn in full view, no-one is going to be in any doubt about the seriousness of your intentions. Pisces is often accused of lacking focus, but this month you’re ‘on it’, with a realistic approach to life. However, you are going to need to get on top of the detail; if something looks too good to be true – it will be – so maintain your focus, don’t get carried away – and if someone accuses you of being a ‘killjoy’, so be it.
The New Moon falls in your house of resources and signals a new approach to money, income and the material side of life. Whether you need to review your bank account or have a decision to make about your future needs – avoid any impulsive decisions and take time to plan – even if you feel like doing the opposite. Mars will make you want to get out and have a good time – but you don’t need to be rash. Use your energy to take care of home and family first – that will bring you more pleasure than anything else. Pluto is going to be stirring your subconscious for a while, so getting comfortable may be desirable – and essential.
