The Astrology of March

by Juliana McCarthy

March begins with the Sun in Pisces leading us into her waters of dreams and surreality. With Mercury retrograde also in Pisces, our minds are even further submerged in poetry and confusion. However, we are gathering steam this month, preparing for a pivot point. We are shifting from pausing for reflection into great momentum forward. By the end of the month, we’ll be in action, paving our way toward the future paradigm.

The biggest shift this month is Saturn’s ingress into Aquarius on March 21, ending a two-and-a-half year journey through Capricorn. This is also the time of the equinox, when day and night are of equal length, as the Sun moves into fiery Aries, beginning the astrological new year. Until then, we are wrapping up heavy karma, disentangling from the past to make room for a revolutionary future. This isn’t the time to cling to what has been—it’s time to embrace the new.

Aquarius is marked by egalitarianism, objective truth, innovation, and also rebellion. If abusive powers prevent our revolution and change, Aquarius will bring shock, chaos, and indignation, demanding that we push forward more quickly. In our personal lives, this means that we’re ready to liberate from stuckness—from any places we’ve been too afraid to let go. It’s time for all of us to elevate and commit to working together to create a kinder world—one that is more reflective of our interconnection, and more supportive of our awakening. After all, we are in this together. Aquarius is ready to take our hands, helping us stand up for each other and our basic human rights. He sees our differences as reason to celebrate rather than divide.

In the throes of changing currents that are ready to push us forward, the month ends with Mars in Aquarius conjunct Saturn. As fires ignite in our bellies, the planets are calling for greater discernment and careful planning, imploring us to write our own future, with determination, humility, integrity, and perseverance.
