March Planetary Events & Astrology Forecasts from NUiT
Welcome to March Planetary Events, the first month of the new zodiacal year. It is a month of new beginnings, but first, let’s wrap up all pending issues. So, here is this new month under the Astro microscope:
Main March Planetary Events & Astrology Forecasts
March 2 – First Quarter Moon in Gemini – Focus, focus, focus! Today’s energy may make you feel a little frantic and scattered.
You may be feeling a bit more scattered than usual. The best usage of this energy is to connect with your inner world. That dream you wished for under the Pisces new moon may feel gigantic and out of your reach, but you don’t need to tackle it all at once – just notice where your curiosity drifts. Act when you feel inspired to. The more you connect to your intuition, the more you’ll know when to take heart-centered actions.
March 3 – Venus in Aries square Saturn in Capricorn – Ouch! Harsh rejection around love, pleasure or money. Try not to take it personally!
This aspect is a battle you cannot win, so lie low. This is not the time to stand up for yourself, request a raise or make an investment – with this harsh aspect, the answer is probably a “no.” Love or money can feel a bit more restricted. But the Venus in Aries energy is a beautiful reminder – the only affirmation you need is the kind that comes from within you. Look internally for the love you seek externally.
March 4 –Mercury in Aquarius (retrograde) sextile Venus in Aries – Words get infused with a beautiful boost!
This is a lovely opportunity to go back to art projects that have been started but abandoned. Remember that short story you began? That collage that is half-finished? This is a supportive aspect for picking up on the beat you left off on, this time bringing it through to completion!
March 4 – Mercury (retrograde) into Aquarius – Review of the past and how it influences the future
Remember what was happening late January, early February? You’re in for a review of the events that transpired during that time. Communicate diplomatically and be solution-oriented – complaining about it won’t do any good. Use Aquarius gift for logic to be rationally about the situation at hand.
March 5 – Venus enters Taurus – Time to get cozy and sensual!
Venus enters her sign of rulership, Taurus, a cozy, luxurious transit. An excuse for self-care in the most tangible, physical sense – indulge in a bubble bath, buy yourself a fuzzy blanket, splurge for the pricier wine that you just adore. Taurus reminds us of just how luxurious it can feel to be human!
March 8 – Venus in Taurus conjunct Uranus in Taurus – Exciting bolts of inspiration around love, money and pleasure!
Things take a turn for the exciting when the planet of love and the planet of eccentricity link up in the cosmos. You may have a thrilling date, book a spontaneous vacation, or invest in those thigh-high cheetah boots that are a shocking departure of your normal way of dressing. However, not all surprises are good surprises, so brace yourself for the disruptions in the pleasures that could come in, good and bad!
March 8 – Sun in Pisces conjunct Neptune in Pisces – The world gets a bit more dreamy, ethereal and elusive
Things take a turn for the ethereal, as life seems to be coated in an illustrious rose-colored glow. But look before you leap, as the energy of Neptune nor Pisces is very skilled with the details that such a leap possible. This energy is best utilized when you surrender into the flow rather than fight it. Try to stick to more right-brained activities of dreaming and creating this week, rather than dealing with facts and figures.
March 9 – Full Moon in Virgo – Illumination of where you need to heal and where you can serve
This full moon illuminates where in life you need to heal. Be mindful of confusion and delusion with this full moon directly opposing Neptune- emotions are running high but you’re not seeing the situation clearly enough to act on them. Allow the dust to settle before you take action on what comes up. Choose instead to move your body, connect to the planet and journal your emotions for clarity.
March 10- Mercury direct in Aquarius – All systems go for communication and planning!
Mercury heads direct, changing directions from its confusing traverse through the signs of Pisces and Aquarius. Walk, don’t run, as the planet of communication is still traveling through the degrees of its shadow. You may get a review of the events that occurred in January 2020.
March 11- Sun in Pisces sextile Jupiter in Capricorn – Confident, faithful energy. Believe it to achieve it!
There’s a bolstering of your can-do mindset – you can dream it in your subconscious mind AND make it happen in your conscious reality, too! No mountain is too giant for you to climb. Believe in yourself and allow that faith to echo into your outward reality.
March 14 – Mars in Capricorn sextile Neptune in Pisces – Good day to put your gut instincts into concrete results
Accomplishing in the physical world is equally about the actions you put forth as well as the internal mindsets you carry. For alignment and success to truly take place, you must find a balance in your internal and external worlds. Trust your intuition enough to act on it – get to work!
March 14 – Sun in Pisces sextile Pluto in Capricorn – Forward motion is the rhythm of life! Look for opportunities to evolve
This sextile supports the efforts you make to better your life, on a spiritual level and a physical. Give yourself supportive “brain food” via a book or podcast, map out a list of goals you desire and habits you’ll need to make those goals a reality – you CAN transform your world from the ground up.
March 16 – Last Quarter Sagittarius Moon – Purifying day to burn off what isn’t working for you
What did the full moon Virgo reveal to you? How are you getting in your own way? This third quarter moon provides an opportunity for you to shed the dead weight in your life so you feel brand new and inspired when the Aries new moon comes around. Think of the firey Sagittarius energy burning away what holds you back.
March 17- Mercury enters Pisces – Communication gets creative, spiritual and perhaps a bit murky!
Mercury (now direct, yet still in its shadow) re-enters Pisces. At its worst, it’s murky, confusing and even delusional. At its best, it’s spiritual, creative and inspirational. Be mindful of your internal world and be gentle with yourself if you feel a bit foggier than usual. Channel the downloads you get into art, poetry, photography!
March 19 – Sun in Pisces sextile Saturn in Capricorn – Sign that contract, commit to the project, firm up the loose details
There’s a firming up of the details here of what has transpired this Pisces season. Saturn provides some grounding so you have a clear head to sign the contract, to follow up on that proposal, to seek quotes for your car insurance plan.
March 20 – Mars in Capricorn conjunct Jupiter in Capricorn Opportunity expands – but it’s all about if you TAKE the chance! Shoot your shot!
Opportunity meets payoff in the sky. You may see this project is worth your time, effort and energy. It may not be a get rich quick scheme (this conjunction occurs in serious, hard-working Capricorn) BUT you can be certain you’ll be rewarded for the time you put in. Beautiful opportunity to send that sales pitch, commit to that project or take on your new class!
March 20 – Sun enters Aries – The zodiac new year begins, bringing with it a burst of energy, action and adventure!
I can see clearly now that Pisces season is gone! Aries season has arrived and with it, a burst of fiery, independent energy for us to blaze a new path forward. Be true to yourself, stand up for what you believe in and start something new.
March 22 – Saturn enters Aquarius – Commit to your individuality

March 22 – Venus in Taurus sextile Neptune in Pisces – Sensual, dreamy aspect for a date night, a paint party
Plan a date night – the dreamier, the better! Both of these signs (Taurus and Pisces) are fans orf sensual pursuits – break out the soft music and bottle of wine!
March 23 – Mars in Capricorn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn – Unearth your inner power
All systems GO and you have clearance to move ahead. You are finally seeing the situation clearly enough to take positive movement towards your goals.

Mars ends its trip through Capricorn to spend some time traveling through humanitarian Aquarius. You may be more driven to spend time with your community and to put your actions where your mouth is. Supportive influence to drum up support around your favorite candidate or ballot measure, get a small group together of people who have similar goals or start the petition of a cause dear to your heart.
March 31- Mars in Aquarius conjunct Saturn in Aquarius – You may feel like you’re working twice as hard for a half of the results – don’t let it get you down!

Word of the month – Connect
Happy New Year, astrology lovers! Yes, while the calendar year may start in January, the zodiacal new year actually begins in March, when the Sun enters the sign of Aries. The first part of this month, however, before this fresh start, is a wrapping up of the old. Pisces is a water sign, and with the Sun conjunct Neptune and Mercury retrograde influence, you may find yourself feeling a bit lost at sea in the first part of this month. Allow connection to be your anchor during these uncertain times. Do what reminds you of the broader role you play in this universe. Spend time in nature, meditate, create art, spend time in your spiritual communities – whatever reminds you that you are not alone.
Be gentle with yourself. Allow some padding in your schedule so you can move slower than you typically do. You’re likely going to feel more thoughtful, creative and emotional than you’re used to. Allow yourself to drift with the Pisces currents. Notice what comes up, both in your physical world and in your subconscious realms. Rather than fighting the emotion, see what it feels like to just surrender to it. Take the first part of March as your cosmic invitation to slow down, to meditate, to dive inwards, to create and connect to your inner world. If you get your inner world clear, your outer world will mirror that as well.
Venus enters the sign of rulership, Taurus, which adds some grounding to the Piscean mix. This transit presents a beautiful opportunity to sensually connect with your world, whether it’s through the food you eat, the nature you spend time with or the art you are inspired by. The full moon in Virgo adds to this earthy energy of Venus, Uranus in Taurus and Mars in Capricorn. If the Pisces water of emotions overwhelms you, know that the way out is through your body – grounding down in the here and now, connecting with nature, moving your body, eating something nutritious. Once Sun enters Aries, you’ll be feeling more inspiration and drive to move forward. Expect to have the wind in your sails towards the end of the month. Sun is exalted in Aries, so you can boost your confidence and feel more empowered on speaking your truth. By the end of the month, Mars and Saturn enter collective-focused Aquarius, emboldening our desires to be a responsible member of society. How can you connect with like-minded humans who envision a similar future that you do? How can you connect your daily reality to the broader schema you have for the world? Aries energy asks “Who am I?” Aquarius energy asks “How can I help?” Find a mixture of the two and commit to your role of making this world (or your community!) a better place.
