March is one of the most potent months of 2023, as the winds of change will be blowing strongly. Two planetary forces, Saturn and Pluto, will change signs, a move they haven’t performed since 2020 and 2008, respectively. While the effects of these movements will unravel over a long period of time, we will begin to see new themes taking place in our lives, collectively and personally.
Master teacher Saturn takes a deep dive into the waters of Pisces on March 7. Over the next three years, we will experience major changes in regulations. Old structures will dissolve, making room for more inclusive rules. Spiritual practices like astrology, Tarot, and mysticism will become even more mainstream. Creativity will also get a boost, with many of us focusing more of our time on reawakening our inner muse.
Mark March 20 as a lucky day to launch any idea or project. Today, the Sun enters Aries, heralding the beginning of spring in the Northern Hemisphere. This date also kicks off Aries season as well as the very beginning of the Astrological New Year. Whatever begins today receives a cosmic push and will most likely be successful. The next day, March 21, also brings this month’s new moon, heralding a new beginning.
On March 23, Pluto—the planet of power and transformation—enters Aquarius. Themes around high technology, activism, and rebellion will be the norm—for the next twenty years! Pluto will instigate a deeper sense of collaboration as “working together toward a shared goal” becomes crucial for us all.

This move will not only create good karma points but will also bring you long-lasting friendships.
March 23 is also another key date to watch, which is when calculating Pluto enters your career sector. From this moment on, you will feel your sense of ambition soar.

On March 25, Mars enters your sign. For the next eight weeks, you will have even more energy at your disposal to chase your goals.

For the next three years, a big part of your energy will be focused on defining, understanding, and crystallizing your significant relationships with others.

From now on, Saturn will highlight creativity for you, reminding you of your natural affinity for it.
More good news! Starting March 16, Venus begins gracing your partnership sector, making the next three weeks ideal for revitalizing your online dating profile or orchestrating some steamy nights with your partner.

When you picture the home of your dreams, what do you see, Sagittarius? Saturn enters your home sector on March 7 and will have you considering your answer to this question. But don’t worry, you have the next three years to bring that dream to fruition! Today, begin by decluttering your closets, cabinets, and storage room, as doing so will most likely instigate a creative breakthrough.
March 23 is also a big day for you, which is when powerful Pluto begins to influence you at a very mental level. From now on, communication of all kinds will play a key role in your growth and personal evolution. It’s a time to pursue the dreams, ideals, and ideas you have put on the back burner—especially if they involve writing a book, launching your podcast, or beginning an in-depth research study.
In March, the winds of change blow tremendously, Capricorn. On March 7, Saturn enters Pisces which kicks off a three-year period in which you will see life through a different lens.

Use this day to create a sacred space in your home where you can embrace practices like meditation, visualization, or candle gazing.
Another significant energetic shift arrives closer to the end of the month.

March 23 could bring you a nice surprise with the arrival of a new job, person, or situation that encapsulates all this personal growth you’ve done.
Congratulations, Aquarius! Since March 2020, the ringed planet Saturn has been teaching you some valuable lessons about responsibility, commitment, and self-mastery.

March 23 is another big day, which is when transformative Pluto enters your sign. From this moment on, you will experience the epic journey of getting in touch with your inner power.

If you’re in need of a new look, March 30 is the perfect day to reclaim your personal power!
Get ready for a major upgrade, Pisces! Taskmaster Saturn enters your sign on March 7, where it will stay for the next three years. During this time, you will be asked to invest a lot more of your time and energy in building something meaningful. This influence could come in the form of a new job, a new house, or more responsibility. Longer hours and a deeper focus from you will be required, but the results will change your life in the end, for the better.
If you’ve been wanting to purchase new furniture or something for your home, make your move before March 16. During the first half of the month, Venus will be gracing your second house of money and possessions, bringing an energy of renewal.
