This is a wild month for you, Aries, and a good opportunity to get in better touch with everything that is going on for you beneath the surface. Surprisingly intense and clear messages could arise unbidden from deep within your psyche, and although these might appear foreign to your more normative thought process, they have their role in conveying to you a glimpse of unconscious activities that affect your decision process from below. The activated presence in your sign of Chiron, the Wounded Healer, signals manifestations of inner wounding, perhaps with regard to your close relationships. If so, this represents a challenge, and yet also an opportunity to get into better conscious connection with these hurt parts of yourself. The Full Moon of March 7th provides unexpected revelations while the Quarter Moon a week later on the 14th represents a time of confusion when you could yet achieve great things through deep-seated intuition. The March 21st New Moon in your sign represents the beginning of a new phase, when transformation is the name of your game and when you continue digging deep within for necessary answers. This, all in all, an exciting monthly period when you will make the most progress internally.

The New Moon in Pisces that took place on February 19th and 20th continues to unfold through the current month and signals a contemplative undercurrent amidst more dynamic shifts. Changes taking place this month could require your direct participation and you might need to balance your energy output with quieter moments to regroup. The first half of the month may emphasize your well-being and your ability to handle stress, especially if you are busy. The health of your body and your emotional states might be intertwined in more overt ways right now and adjusting your sleep pattern or diet could do wonders on a psychological level. Do not underestimate the revitalizing powers of solitude amidst your busy schedule and take the time needed to rest.
At the beginning of the month, from the 1st to the 3rd, Venus and Jupiter form a conjunction in Aries which is visible in the western sky at dusk if you live in the Northern Hemisphere. These are the two brightest planets visible to the naked eye and their conjunction in your sign augurs opportunities for growth, healing, and new positive experiences at this time.
Messenger planet Mercury enters the transcendental waters of Pisces on the 2nd which may bring inspiration and connection to more subtle modes of perceptions in the following weeks.
The Full Moon in Virgo on the 7th could illuminate your daily tasks and the creative aspects of your work. You may be required to use your imagination more than usual and be proactive about the application of your artistic and creative talents. Your ability to use what you know skillfully can be tied to your financial situation and you might be required to improvise or go with the flow at this time. Saturn enters Pisces a few hours after the Full Moon which signals a two-year cycle in the part of your chart that relates to your unconscious patterns. The transit of Saturn in Pisces until 2025 could help you take stock of your past achievements while also bringing awareness to patterns or beliefs that are no longer useful in your life.
Things could get increasingly busy as the month of March progresses and communication or self-expression features strongly mid-month as the Sun and Mercury meet Neptune in Pisces while also forming a square with Mars in Gemini. Your personal ambitions and your financial situation can also be important points of focus as Venus in Aries forms a square with Pluto in Capricorn before entering the sign of Taurus on the 16th. The following weeks may be a good time to ask for a raise if you feel like your skills are being undervalued or promote yourself more actively if you are self-employed.
Mercury enters your sign of Aries on the 18th and the Sun follows suit on the 20th which signals the Spring Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere and the beginning of a new cycle of growth for you.
The New Moon in your sign arrives a day later on March 21st which represents a fresh start for you in many ways, and is especially auspicious for new ventures and setting intentions. There is a huge lineup of planets in your sign in this New Moon timing, and brilliant ideas of new shifts in values and in your existing belief system. Your deepest sense of what truly matters you o is on the line, and settling your understanding there will be an important component of the remainder of your year.
Aries Season might also bring a more dynamic and revitalizing energy for you in general that could help you advance in your chosen direction and allow you to get a lot more done in the weeks ahead.
On the 23rd, Pluto enters Aquarius, leaving the sign of Capricorn where it has been transiting since 2008. Pluto will spend the next 20 years in the sign of Aquarius and its effect will likely be felt almost immediately at subtle levels of your psych, to be expanded upon over the coming weeks and months, after a short dip back into Capricorn beginning mid-June. This transition ultimately signal important transformation and renewal afoot, especially in relation to your vision for the future, your aspirations, and your contribution or role with regard to your community.
Mars enters the sign of Cancer on the 25th, which may bring a contrasting influence in the following weeks between the more introverted or security-focused aspects of your personality versus the more enthusiastic, impulsive, or extraverted aspects of your nature. Once again, honoring your need for solitude, autonomy, and even your frustrations could help you integrate contradictory needs you might be experiencing at this time while staying in the game.
The last week of March features the Moon’s First Quarter, in your home sector, on the 28th, bringing up potential adjustments with family members and interior dialogs. You might be able to arrive at a deeper understanding of your inner values and any stand that you might need to take in order to support them. It could be harder to compromise. Communication with others should feel relatively easy but there can be underlying tensions or sudden switches in point of view. Tolerance and patience might be needed at this time, especially in professional and domestic matters. Overall the end of the month should feel progressive and exciting so you can also be prepared to take advantage of the momentum.
