March madness is here, and I’m not talking about college basketball: There is major activity going down in the cosmos right now. Over half of the zodiac signs make an appearance this month, with many planetary motions occurring the same day. You may feel that you’re being pulled in multiple directions simultaneously, but don’t fret, cosmic warrior, you can do this.
We dive into serious vibes with a full moon in Virgo on March 1. Important information is always revealed during the full moon’s nocturnal illumination, so don’t be surprised if you receive shocking news at the beginning of the month. The truth isn’t always pretty, but it’s better to know than be left in the dark. This full moon occurs on the axis that governs physical and mental wellness, prompting us to think about how our everyday choices impact our emotional health. It’s time to consider altering any routines that may be perpetuating toxic patterns.
On March 6, both Mercury, the planet of communication, and Venus, the planet of love and beauty, glide into the Aries constellation. The first sign of the zodiac, Aries is impulsive, fiery, and confident. With both expression and romance adopting its tone, you may be inspired to get a bit bossier in the bedroom. Consensual power play can be extremely fun and sexy, so don’t hesitate to turn up the heat.
On March 8, Jupiter goes retrograde in Scorpio. Though the word “retrograde” induces panic, save your worries for later in the month when Mercury begins its backward glide. Jupiter is an abundant planet — in astrospeak, it’s known as the “Great Benefic” — actually enjoys its reverse glide, and we benefit from it, too. Jupiter cruises into retrograde motion annually, spending approximately 120 days journeying backward. When it retraces its steps, it ensures that we receive generous offerings, so this is one reversal we should all relish.
Another huge cosmic occurrence occurs in the middle of the month, when a new moon in Pisces coincides with Mars’s movement into Capricorn on March 17. New moons always usher in beginnings, while Mars’s motion reflects determination. In this unlikely pairing, Pisces’s emotional intelligence is complemented by Capricorn’s logical ambition. The combined energy of these transits encourages us to follow our intuition when considering new professional opportunities. We make the best career decisions when we trust our gut.
The sun glides into Aries on March 20, marking the beginning of Aries season and another trip around the zodiac. The vernal equinox is the astrological new year, so pop the bubbly and celebrate this fresh start. After exploring the emotional depths of Pisces season, Aries encourages us to approach life with bold spontaneity. With the beginning of the new zodiac cycle, we shed the past by embracing the present.
Keep in mind, however, that the first Mercury retrograde of 2018 begins on March 22. Unlike Jupiter’s generous backward spin, Mercury’s reversed course is clumsy and awkward. The function of fast-moving Mercury is to deliver messages through words and transportation, and when it reverses, we can expect miscommunication and delays. Mercury retrograde is a time for reflection, so favor meditation over action until this one ends come April 15.
The month concludes with another synchronized transit: On March 31, Venus shifts into the Taurus constellation as the night sky is electrified by a full moon in Libra. Taurus is ruled by Venus, so the constellation and planet connect harmoniously through elegant sensuality. Coincidentally, Venus also governs Libra, so the second full moon of the month — this phenomenon is called a blue moon — emphasizes partnerships. After several hectic weeks, you’ll appreciate these effortlessly romantic transits and extra sexy vibes.
