There is one outstanding feature this month: a double Full Moon, also known as a Blue Moon. The first Full Moon comes on 2 March in the sign of Virgo. The second one comes on 31 March in the sign of Libra.
The Full Moon is the time to release negativity from our lives, so March gives us two chances to detox emotionally. The Moon is the queen of emotions, and as she swells, our emotions do, too.
If you would like to work with the Full Moons, make the time. Light a candle, put on some beautiful spiritual music and make a list of anything negative in your life that you want to release. In particular, think of anyone you need to forgive, or consider whether you need to forgive yourself for anything.
If you want to go the Full Moon monty, recite the words below, inspired by the work of the American author Catherine Ponder. ‘Under the glorious Full Moon, I forgive everything, everyone, every experience, every memory of the past or present that needs forgiveness. I forgive positively everyone. I also forgive myself for past mistakes. The Universe is love, and I am forgiven and governed by love alone. Love is now adjusting my life. Realising this, I abide in peace.’
Have a great month!
20 Feb to 20 Mar
Mercury reversing in your second House of Cash suggests that either there will be delays to money you are due to receive or it could be a good time for you to finally get the money you have been waiting for. Try to expect the best. The New Moon in your sign on 17 March is your chance to decide that you're going to do things differently when it comes to love, money or anything else.
Power date: 13 March – the skies are on your side today. Take a chance
21 Mar to 20 Apr
Mercury will be going retrograde in your sign from 23 March, so use the first three weeks of the month to back up any precious computer files, book trips away and generally get your house in order. Once Mercury starts retrograding, chaos often ensues! March could also see you looking backwards, doing things over again or taking a walk down memory lane. Plus, the 31 March Full Moon in your Love Zone could bring relationship issues to a head.
Power date: 11 March – a great day to take action and make changes
21 Apr to 21 May
If you want to explore your spiritual side more, this is a great month to get back on the path. Any practice that connects you to your intuition or your inner self will do. Think yoga, meditation, chanting, using oracle cards or anything else that lights your spiritual fire. Also, if you can get away this month or if you're learning or teaching – including doing weekend courses – it should be a very powerful process.
Power date: 31 March – Venus, the planet of love and abundance, enters Taurus
22 May to 22 Jun
If you work, use this month to make sure you're not burning the candle at both ends. Many Geminis are still recovering from having had workhorse Saturn meddling with them between 2014 and 2017. You need to make sure you remember how to relax. Make your personal life a priority. If money is an issue, work hard, but try not to work yourself into the ground. A financial plan will help you enormously now.
Power date: 4 March – love is in the air, from friends, family or a beloved
23 Jun to 23 Jul
All the March action in your chart is in your Love Zone, so expect your love life and the people who matter most to you to be taking up a lot of your attention this month. In a good way? Yes, it could be. However, there is also a strong possibility that you’re having your character tested by people who seem hellbent on trying to wind you up! They are teaching you life lessons.
Power date: 11 March – a good day to sort out a relationship crisis
24 Jul to 23 Aug
If you want to change your life, then you need to start with your small, everyday routines. The way you start and end your day will have a major impact, so give that some thought. We’re never too old for morning green smoothies and evening stretches, for example. The currently planetary alignments strongly support you in making changes to your schedule. You could find that doing so has a positive knock-on effect on your health.
Power date: 4 March – a great time for daydreaming. Visualise your dream future
24 Aug to 23 Sep
The New Moon this month is in your Love Zone, which means it's your annual chance to wipe the slate clean and start all over again when it comes to all your most important relationships. As we go through life, it's very easy to allow upsets with others to become relationship rifts that are hard to heal. But life is too short to hold on to anger. Even if you can't forget, do forgive. It's healthier!
Power date: 19 March – a day to spend with someone you adore
24 Sep to 23 Oct
There is such a lot going on in your chart this month. For one thing, Mercury is retrograde in your Love Zone. If you're single and have been contemplating tracking down a former love, the skies totally support you. Attached? There could be misunderstandings but also double the chances to – eventually – really understand each other. The 31 March Full Moon in your sign brings emotional matters to a head. Don’t lose your cool!
Power date: 28 March – there could be a big surprise
24 Oct to 22 Nov
Your biggest lesson this month (and next) is for you to learn how to control the way you express yourself. It's a well-known astrological fact that Scorpios feel things more deeply than just about anyone else. Sometimes, these deep feelings cut you to the quick and you end up lashing out at others. Use the current energies to discipline yourself to think things through well and truly before you speak.
Power date: 17 March – you should start to feel more energised
23 Nov to 21 Dec
Cash can be a tricky subject for the richest people, let alone for regular people of modest means. This month, there is a line-up of planets in your second House of Cash suggesting that money is going to be a key focus for you. Try not to let it worry you. If you want to earn more cash – for example, with a part-time job – use this month to make a plan and execute it.
Power date: 2 March – a great day for talking anything through
22 Dec to 20 Jan
The first half of the month could see you worrying too much, to the point where you might even find it hard to sleep. If you’re struggling to wind down before bed, try this simple method: at the end of the day, sit on the side of your bed and give yourself a chance to think through the day's events. Empty your brain. By the second half of the month, you're much better and feeling powerful again – use your powers for good!
Power date: 17 March – feisty Mars enters your sign and fires you up
21 Jan to 19 Feb
You have great stars this month. Your finances get a restart and there's also potential for you to be recognised for something you do – be it work or community-related. The one thing standing between you and a peaceful life right now, though, is fear. The line-up of Mars, Saturn and Pluto in your Fear Zone makes you more likely to doubt yourself, but also means you’re more able to work through any anxiety. Your choice.
Power date: 28 March – you should feel loved today
