Saturn In Aquarius: Your Sun Sign Guide

SATURN IN AQUARIUS

March 22, 2020 to July 1, 2020 

December 17, 2020 to March 7, 2023

Saturn’s move into Aquarius this weekend lights up a whole new sector of your solar horoscope. This is the beginning of a three year transit of Saturn through Aquarius, the egalitarian star sign representing structure & organisation and futuristic, modern ways of thinking.

Saturn in Aquarius is the scientist, the inventor, innovative and trend-setting. Saturn’s rule in Aquarius highlights community and society, the New Age and alternative trends. Aquarius’ co-ruler Uranus represents technology, new ideas & collaborative ventures. Aquarius’ gaze is always one step ahead embracing the future.

You’re in it for the long haul with Saturn in Aquarius and it helps to know what you can do to make the most of this new planetary transit. Here’s a quick guide to the twelve star signs and what Saturn in Aquarius means for you:

Aquarius

Finally, you have your ruling planet Saturn back where it belongs in your star sign Aquarius for the first time in 30 years. If your life’s been lacking direction, it’s time to reorient your compass and get on track with your long-term personal goals and aims. It’s a good idea to step things up a notch and decide where you can make your mark within society. More ambition comes your way but don’t lose your heart in the process. Be sensitive as well as tough. Take charge of your physical well-being; a healthy regime will benefit your progress.

Pisces

Saturn in Aquarius is hidden away in your horoscope as Aquarius is the sign before Pisces in the zodiac. This is about inner work, learning to be alone and embrace solitude when necessary. You might be walking a spiritual path or feel a calling to move away from social media and be of service in the world. This is a key period of preparation for you, whether you’re studying, researching or recharging your batteries. Keep your gaze firmly focused on your future plans.

Aries

There’s less pressure on your career and reputation once Saturn is established in Aquarius. You may discover that having friends in high places or extending your professional network opens the right doors. This is the time to consider your group connections and find people you can team up with on and off-line to further your long-term goals. There will be lessons to learn around friendship and community and you’re required to get serious about these all-important connections in your life. Prove you’re committed to your charity ventures and you’re in it for the long haul.

Taurus

Saturn reaches the pinnacle of your horoscope in Aquarius. This is the time to be decisive about your career and vocation and make the right moves which can improve your status and assure your long-term reputation moving forwards. Take on a new position of responsibility, step into a leadership role and develop a hard-work ethic. Saturn in Aquarius can benefit you over the next three years, as long as you’re prepared to knuckle down and focus on the long-term goals. Your rewards will come through perseverance and making slow and steady progress.

Gemini

Aquarius is a fellow air sign so Saturn in Aquarius can help get you on the right track. This is the time to sign up for a three year course to improve your learning or gain new qualifications. You might have a goal to emigrate or live abroad in the future. If so, Saturn in Aquarius is the time to prepare yourself and get organised. If you lose sight of the meaning or purpose to your life or find it hard to visualise your future, delve into ancient wisdom or be inspired by the great thinkers throughout history. Happiness is an inside job.

Cancer

Saturn’s move into Aquarius means it’s time to get serious about debt, an investment or long-term financial decision. Aquarius rules the sector of your horoscope that concerns joint finances and shared resources. Yes, you need to pay attention to what’s happening in the here and now but it’s also the right time to consider your future options. It’s not just about making strategic money moves or creating sound joint ventures either. This transit of Saturn through Aquarius is tapping you into the metaphysical realm and discovering the riches in life that are not about money or material possessions.

Leo

Aquarius is your opposite star sign and Saturn here can be a tough task-master. You might be up against strong competition or opposition and you need to toughen up and prove your leadership credentials. Relationships are under the cosmic spotlight, your 1-to-1’s, both personal and professional. Saturn in Aquarius can represent a time of commitment, settling down and making the right relationship choice. You have to work at love and partnership, however, and not expect your relationships to be a breeze. Make some strategic partnership moves and think of the future.

Virgo

Saturn in Aquarius brings out the side of your nature that’s organised and likes to be busy. This is about your work and routine, your lifestyle and health and managing your time well. If you take on too much while Saturn is in Aquarius, you’ll wear yourself out. If you’re out of work, you might have to find ways to deal with fear or doubt, to keep your inner light shining bright. Service to others is a Saturn in Aquarius theme and wanting to give something back. It’s less about you and more about playing a valuable role within your community. This is where fulfilment lies.

Libra

You have Saturn in a strong planetary dynamic as Aquarius is a fellow air sign. Saturn is in the sector of your horoscope that rules your talents and how you express yourself. If you want to learn an instrument or master a craft or skill, you have extra self-discipline now and the ability to stay on track and put in hours of training or practise. When it comes to parenting, be disciplined but not overly so; when it comes to new love, be dedicated to romance but not overly serious. If you’re lacking fun in life, play more, work less.

Scorpio

Saturn in Aquarius moves to the base of your horoscope taking you back into the past. This sector of your chart represents where you come from, your home and family, your ancestry and roots. Delve into your family history. Sometimes, you find it hard to move when Saturn’s here. Or, perhaps you’re ready to settle down, stay put and build strong foundations in your life. Elderly parents may require extra time and attention and themes of duty and responsibility run through your family connections.

Sagittarius

This is the time to find your voice and become an authority in your field, while Saturn in Aquarius moves through your communication sector. You have to prove you can be consistent and reliable in your communications, whether you’re promoting, marketing or networking online. You might choose to take on a responsible role within your community or work hard to build strong bonds with your siblings, cousins or neighbours. Commuting less is preferable and making new online friendships brings long-term fulfilment.

Capricorn

You may be delighted that Saturn, your ruler, is no longer in Capricorn. Saturn in your star sign can coincide with a time of hardship or ill health. Alternatively, you may have enjoyed Saturn honing your self-discipline and ability to work hard. With Saturn in Aquarius, this is the time to take finances seriously. You’re going to have to learn to be more conservative with your money and budget well. Saturn in Aquarius favours saving rather than spending, being thrifty and making sensible long-term financial decisions. It’s an ideal time for you to earn from an online business.

Top Tips For The Equinox

 

The Sun enters Aries this week on March 20, 2020 at 03:50 GMT. This is the Sun’s annual ‘fresh start’ as it moves to 0 degrees Aries and begins a new cycle of the zodiac. Western astrology is aligned to the seasonal points, the Summer & Winter Solstice in June and December, The Spring & Autumnal Equinoxes in March and September.

This is the Spring Equinox in the northern hemisphere (Autumn Equinox in the southern hemisphere). In honour of the Sun’s new zodiac cycle, here’s how to make the most of this pivotal point in the year.

1. Spring Into Action

There’s a physical quality to Aries, due to the fact that this is a competitive sign and Aries likes to win. Aries’ ruling planet, Mars, is linked to strength & stamina and martial arts are named after the God of War.

Whether you’re walking or running daily or you’re leaping into a yogic warrior pose every morning, this is the perfect time to start a physical activity that makes you feel strong and invincible.

2. Healthy Habits

Many people use the start of the year to begin a New Year’s resolution and commit to healthy habits. Dry January is a regular fixture in our house. Yet, it makes more sense to use the Equinox energy to focus on your health. The weather is less grim and cold and summer means less clothes!

Start a detox, eat smaller portions or any other new habit that boosts your energy levels. The Sun in Aries takes place during Lent, a four week chapter which completes on April 9th. You might decide it’s not about giving something up for you. Instead, add a daily habit or some healthy tweaks to your diet or routine. Honour your body. Aries mantra: “my body is a temple”.

3. Be Spontaneous

Fire signs, like Aries, are the ‘just do it’ brigade. Aries in particular is the expert at starting something new. This isn’t about the mind and thinking things through. Instead it’s about spontaneous action, immediacy, acting without thinking.

This can be seen as foolish, which is why The Fool card in the Tarot is linked to Aries energy, the first card of the tarot deck. There’s a naive innocence to the sign of Aries. Yet, how many times do you look back on your life and think ‘if I hadn’t done that, I wouldn’t be where I am now’.

4. March Into Spring

Aries is the sign of the crusader, the white knight of the zodiac, ready to go into battle to fight a good cause. Mars is God of War in mythology. This is the perfect time of year to join a community initiative, stand up for what you believe in, defend the weak and fight for peoples’ rights.

An independent sign, Aries understands that you only need one person to make a difference. One small act can impact in a huge way. Don’t wait for other people to start a revolution. If there’s something you feel strongly about and you know you can help others, here’s your opportunity.

5. The Sap Is Rising

Mars rules your libido and it’s the planet linked to sexuality and passion. The birds and the bees are getting in on the act at this time of year and new life is budding. You only need to step out into the countryside or go for a walk to notice that the animal world is starting to feel frisky.

Plus, sex has a huge number of physical benefits as it releases oxytocin and other feel-good hormones into your body, which can ease pain, boost your mood, even help smooth your wrinkles! In the words of Aries soul-singer Marvin Gaye (b. April 2 1939), ‘Let’s get it on’.

6. Big Yourself Up

If you’ve seen a true Aries in action, they are not afraid to tell you how good they are at their job or to reel off their impressive list of credentials. Aries tends to be brilliant at self-advertisement, even if it sometimes can flip into arrogance or boasting.

Yet, diva like behaviour isn’t always a bad thing as it gets you noticed and it’s a good thing to love yourself. In a world where modesty is a revered quality, it doesn’t do any harm to let the world know who you are. Celebrate your individuality and focus on your personal strengths. Be more Aries and let your confident self do the talking.

7. Sow Seeds

Aries is the initiator of the zodiac, where new beginnings take place and new life comes into being. This is the ideal time of year to sow seeds, whether you’re doing so in your garden or greenhouse or in life in general. What small steps can you take right now that will plant an acorn or a seed in someone’s ear that can grow into something bigger over time?

Even if you don’t have a clear picture of where you’re heading, what you start can lead you down a new path in life. Some projects will work out, some will fall by the wayside, just like seeds – some germinate, some never make it. Yet the more seeds you sow, the greater your chance of success.

Where To Make A Fresh Start?

Here’s a quick guide to specific areas where renewal or a fresh start are recommended. Read both your Sun Sign and your Ascendant sign, if you know it:

  • Aries: Your image, profile, name; how the world sees you
  • Taurus: Your inner world, self care, retreat, your spiritual life
  • Gemini: Your friends, online connections; your hopes & wishes for the future
  • Cancer: Your career & vocation in life; your status & reputation
  • Leo: Your lust for knowledge & learning; the bigger picture, your beliefs
  • Virgo: Your joint finances & shared resources; the metaphysical world
  • Libra: Your relationships, personal & professional; your enemies – confront them
  • Scorpio: Your work & routine; your lifestyle & health; service to others
  • Sagittarius: Your love of play, where you find joy; children, passion, creativity, entertainment
  • Capricorn: Your home & family; your past & where you come from
  • Aquarius: Your community; the way you communicate; the spoken & written word
  • Pisces: Your personal money; what you value highly in life; your assets & possessions

Happy Equinox!

Mercury re-enters Pisces Effects

Mercury enters Pisces – Monday 16th March (07:42 GMT)

Talk planet Mercury returns to Pisces today where it remains until April 11th. It moves out of its shadow phase on March 29th. Therefore, you’re retracing your steps from earlier in the year, specifically the period from February 3rd to February 17th.

Mercury in Pisces is mysterious & elusive, the planet of the mind in the star sign ruling dreams & the imagination. Try not to let your mind run away with you as those emotional realms are currently deep & boundless. The truth can be distorted, the lines between fact & fantasy become vague.

Yet, you can use this transit creatively when you seek inspiration and beauty in life. Be a romantic, practise kindness, be sensitive to others & reach out to find new ways to make connections.

Here’s a quick guide to the areas of your life where Mercury is active – read your Sun sign & Ascendant sign if you know it:

  • Pisces – personal goals/aims, physical body, image & self-perception
  • Aries – sacrifice, inner work, a spiritual retreat, caring for self & others
  • Taurus – friends, groups, politics, social causes, hopes & wishes
  • Gemini – career & vocation, status & reputation, authority, future goals
  • Cancer – travel, study, the bigger picture, life’s meaning & purpose
  • Leo – joint finances & shared resources, taboos, all things hidden & mysterious
  • Virgo – relationships, both personal & professional, contracts, enemies
  • Libra – work & routine, lifestyle & health, service to others
  • Scorpio – children & creativity, love affairs & luck, fun & entertainment
  • Sagittarius – home & family, the past, your legacy, where you come from
  • Capricorn – communication, siblings, neighbours, community, your voice
  • Aquarius – money & possessions, values & self-worth

Full Moon Virgo: Mercury Turns Direct

FULL MOON [19 Virgo 37] – Monday 9th March (17:48 GMT)

Mercury turns direct [28 Aquarius 13] – Tuesday 10th March (03:49 GMT)

Sun Pisces sextile Jupiter Capricorn – Wednesday 11th March (12:27 GMT)

Full Moon Virgo

It’s a busy few days of astrology ahead. Firstly, on Monday 9th March, there’s a Full Moon, the pinnacle of the moon cycle. During this week’s Full Moon, the Moon is in the analytical sign of Virgo, ruled by Mercury, and the Sun is in go-with-the-flow Pisces, ruled by Jupiter & Neptune.

Opposite signs in the zodiac have opposite natures and they can learn from each other. Virgo is the sign of analysis and excellent at paying attention to detail. At its best, a perfectionist, orderly & precise; at its worst a worrier, overly critical & demanding.

At this Full Moon of order (Virgo) v. confusion (Pisces), perfectionism (Virgo) v. go with the flow (Pisces), the first step is to consider what you could let go of, which decisions you can postpone for a while, what’s urgent, what’s not.

There are times when you need to actively download your mind, to stop, to empty it out. How can you slow down, relax, chill out? Any activity where you can stop the chatter in your head and tap into your intuitive instinctive nature is of huge benefit now.

So, while the Full Moon is in Virgo, do get your life in order, attend to your diet, tweak your daily habits, stick to your deadline but don’t try and order your life so meticulously that there’s no room for flow and ease.

Mercury Turns Direct

The day after the Full Moon, Virgo’s ruler, Mercury turns direct in air sign Aquarius on Tuesday 10th March. These two events seem closely linked as Mercury rules the Full Moon and both planetary phenomena indicate light and truth.

The light of the Full Moon brings clarity and Mercury turning direct sheds light and new information on all that’s been hidden. The beginning of the new week could, therefore, bring a significant turning point. At the very least, now’s the time to trust your intuition and start making wise decisions.

Also this week, Jupiter is the planet of hope and faith and teams up with the Sun on Wednesday 11th March. Be hopeful, be generous and kind, be faithful to the life you choose to live and let go of the setbacks graciously. Jupiter often wafts a little bit of cosmic magic and luck – accept it willingly.

Pisces’ Realm

Admittedly, we are still in Pisces’ realm as Pisces’ co-rulers, Jupiter and Neptune dominate during the Full Moon and Mercury dives back into Pisces on March 16th. Mercury’s shadow phase completes on March 29th.

These are confusing times we live in. More than ever, it’s important to get real about the facts but not lose yourself in the frenzy of the media – a perfect message of this week’s Full Moon – Virgo (facts) v. Pisces (media). We can already see people divided over how to react or respond regarding the current virus crisis.

Find your personal tricks and tools to conjure up magic and mystery in a good way this week. Listen out for and seek the turning points, the news, truth or information that enables you to regain your strength, your grace, your down-to-earth common sense. Make the right decisions, trust your intuition.

Mercury, the planet of facts, figures & communication is back on side and working well – use his skills wisely, do what you can, get life back on track.

Coronavirus: The Astrology

Saturn/Pluto Conjunction

Back in January, we knew that the rare alignment of the Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn would likely require a reset.

Saturn and Pluto’s challenging aspects often coincide with a time of endings & hardship. The Grim Reaper (Saturn) meets God of the Underworld (Pluto) in Capricorn, the star sign ruling the establishment – it was never going to be a happy marriage between the two and it smacked of a global recession.

What we weren’t aware of at the start of 2020 was the major impact of the coronavirus globally, although it had already kicked in. Reading back through my Saturn/Pluto article from January, the following words now make more sense:

‘The key themes of the Saturn/Pluto conjunction are endings, super powers, death & loss, the passing of time and the dark side of life’. Some of my tips on the Saturn/Pluto conjunction were; ‘Get real and deal with the facts’, ‘Flex your survival instinct’, ‘Ditch the fear’. All worth holding on to at this peak moment in history.

What I wanted to do in this article was consider the astrology for the onset of the virus to see if that can help us work out the timing of events and where we need to pay close attention. As always, I’ve tried to keep the astrology simple to help make sense of things.

Jupiter In Capricorn

Looking at the coronavirus timeline, the first case was on December 1, 2019. What’s interesting about this date is that Jupiter was at 29 Sagittarius on the verge of joining Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn the following day, December 2, 2019.

Jupiter is the global planet, linked to foreign connections, travel and study, also religion, hope & faith, broadcasting and the Law. Its most significant planetary aspect in 2020 is a conjunction with Pluto which happens three times on the following dates: April 5, June 30 and November 12, 2020.

These major planetary aspects act as a backdrop to the year – they can be specific date-wise but more often they bring a theme to the year’s events. We are already seeing how this is playing out as severe travel restrictions are being put in place. Jupiter rules travel and Pluto is the wipe-out planet.

Therefore, it’s super important to consider your travel plans in the year ahead, limit unnecessary travel and ensure that you have good insurance as soon as you book. The impact of the coronavirus is already hitting the airline business and limiting our freedom, another key feature of Jupiter.

Another area to note are schools and places of study, which again are already being closed when there’s a case of coronavirus confirmed. Here too, you need to be ready for significant changes or cancellations.

Whatever happens this month – see Mars section below – this could still impact on travel & study plans throughout the year.

Quarantine & Lockdown

When I was thinking about the Saturn/Pluto conjunction back in January, the image of a prison came to mind. Saturn rules walls, boundaries, confinement; Pluto rules caves, the Underworld, dark places.

The ‘lockdown symbolism’ is evident. Which brings me to cruise ships, the monolithic vessels surging through our seas. I’ve never been a fan of cruise ships.

Yes, you travel to amazing places but you can’t get off them in the middle of the ocean which is my personal idea of hell. They’re not great for the environment and they have exploded in popularity in recent years.

The quarantine on the cruise ships which turned out to be a fertile breeding ground for the virus is a shuddering reminder of the Saturn/Pluto ‘lockdown’ symbolism. If Saturn/Pluto is the equivalent of a reset button, we are being forced to consider the way we travel around the globe.

South Node In Capricorn

There is another key planetary factor involved. The definitive date for the corona virus was December 31, 2019, when China alerted the WHO (World Health Organisation) to the spread of the disease.

On this day, the Sun was exactly conjunct the South Node, both at 8 degrees Capricorn. The South Node is a point in astrology that’s often associated with ‘bad fortune’. Traditionally, this is a point linked to release and letting go, especially when you slip into bad habits, your comfort zone.

Normally, a virus would be represented by Neptune in astrology, the mysterious, intangible planetary influence which often shows in personal illness, especially any condition which is hard to diagnose. Yet, the coronavirus seems to be taking hold as the planets move through Capricorn, affecting the structure of our lives.

Mars In Capricorn

Which brings me to another important point astrologically and suggests that this month, March 2020, is pivotal. This is the fact that Mars, the planet representing speed and ferocity, is currently in Capricorn. It moved here on February 16th and remains in Capricorn until March 30th.

We are already seeing Mars’ impact as the virus accelerates. Plus, the first international sports match which was postponed was the Ireland-Italy rugby game on February 26, 2020. On this date, the South Node in Capricorn was conjunct Mars, the planet which rules sport and physical activities, both at 6 degrees Capricorn.

Mars still has a way to go in Capricorn as Mars is conjunct Jupiter on March 20th and Pluto on March 23th. These dates are likely to prove pivotal for the spread of the virus, whether this is when it peaks or it brings a turning point.

Although, it’s worth noting that the South Node is moving backwards out of Capricorn by May 5, 2020 and makes no further connections with planets in Capricorn.

0 Degrees Aquarius

Mars joins Saturn in Aquarius on March 30th and they meet at 0 Aquarius on March 31st. When I drew up the chart for December 1, 2019, the first coronavirus case, I chose a sunrise chart and the Moon was at 0 Aquarius.

The Jupiter/Saturn conjunction which heralds a New Age also takes place at 0 Aquarius on December 21, 2020. These dates and planetary alignments could bring something new to the situation. Here’s hoping it’s a breakthrough, turning points towards a solution. It’s worth noting these dates to see what happens next.

The ‘Eyes’ Of The Universe

The symbolism of the Sun/South Node conjunction in Capricorn which coincided with the announcement of the corona virus is intriguing. In traditional astrology, the Sun and Moon represent the eyes; the Sun is the right eye, the Moon the left eye.

The Sun has a ‘corona’ which is invisible to the human eye except during an eclipse. Then, it’s brought to light. The eyes of the world – the Sun & Moon – look down upon us as we stand and fall, make mistakes, abuse the earth we live on and, hopefully, try to make amends.

As always with astrology, there’s a sense that the steps we take in life as human beings are closely connected to the cosmic order, the movements of the stars & planets. We are seeing that in what’s happening now as we’re being forced to consider how we lead our lives on our beautiful planet.

Pisces March Horoscope 2020

Pisces’ Season

It’s your birthday month and there’s plenty of reason to celebrate as we enter the month of March. The Sun is in your star sign until the 20th, boosting your energy and vitality. When planets are in Pisces, this is the time to focus on your personal goals and aims, your image and profile and how other people see you.

Admittedly, communication planet Mercury has been retrograde in Pisces since February 17th and this can be a confusing time for you. You may feel as if you’re being drawn back towards the past or find it hard to move in a linear fashion. You could be more emotional or sentimental than usual and find that life’s diversions make it harder to get things done.

Mercury moves out of Pisces on the 4th but returns here on the 16th where it remains throughout the second half of March. This brings a theme of second chances. Once Mercury’s direct – on the 10th – it’s a good idea to chase things up. Reconnect with people, try again with a love relationship and rediscover some of your ideas or projects that got shelved earlier in the year.

When Mercury is moving forwards in your star sign from the 16th onwards, this is potentially a creative and fertile period. Work on your personal goals and seek inspiration from books, movies, talks. Get your mind moving in a good way.

Full Moon Glory

The other key period this month is the 9th, when there’s a glorious Full Moon cutting across the Virgo/Pisces axis of the zodiac. This is gorgeous for love and relationships as there’s a romantic vibe around this Full Moon. Spend quality time with the one you love. Or, if you’re single, ask someone out on a date.

The 8th is ideal as there’s a Sun/Neptune conjunction in Pisces and a Venus/Uranus conjunction in Taurus. Neptune is the higher octave of Venus and both planets are linked to romance, art and beauty. And, if relationships aren’t currently your thing, fall in love elsewhere in life. Bring more beauty into your life and engage in activities that uplift your romantic and poetic soul.

Friends & Groups

Friends and groups could play a signficant role in your life this month. Action planet, Mars, is in Capricorn and this sector of your horoscope until the 30th. You may be around friends who inspire you or want to join you in getting fit or starting a protest.

There’s a strident nature to Mars, the planet which rules anger as well as passion. If you feel strongly about something this month, it’s an ideal time to join a group or show your support. The key period for activism is the 20th to the 23rd.

On the first date, Mars is conjunct Jupiter in Capricorn, your ruling planet. This combination feels fast and furious and things can happen quickly. Jupiter’s the planet of good fortune and opportunity, so find your tribe or connect with the right people in your life.

The second date is potentially more challenging as this is the day of a Mars/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. Be wary of people in a position of power who try to dominate or take control.

You could be caught up with a friend at a time of crisis. Or, find that you’re ready to move away from a group that’s taking up too much of your time or is going in the wrong direction.

Endings & New Beginnings

This period coincides with Saturn’s major move leaving Capricorn and entering Aquarius. This is major because it takes Saturn almost 30 years to circuit the zodiac and this event doesn’t happen frequently.

Saturn leaves Capricorn on the 22nd and returns there on July 1st. It finally moves into Aquarius for the subsequent two years on December 17th. This is a significant chapter which could coincide with an ending in your life.

You might step down from a position of authority or a leadership role. Or perhaps, you do the opposite and want to get more involved in politics or a social cause that means a lot to you.

Aquarius is the most hidden sector of your horoscope as it’s your previous star sign. So think about what you’re letting go of and what’s coming to completion. Mercury, the communication planet, retreats back into Aquarius on the 4th, turns direct here on the 10th and leaves Aquarius on the 16th.

This turns your attention inwards as Aquarius rules your inner life, your inner voice. It’s about retreat and reflection, quiet times and solitude. It’s a time when may be pulled back towards the past and you’re more aware of the cycle of karma, the wheel of fortune.

Saturn’s move into Aquarius on the 22nd could be the start of a new phase opening up for you. This might be linked to religion or spirituality or wanting to play more of a part within society, the world around you. Aquarius is egalitarian and Saturn in Aquarius has a social conscience. What begins in March could open up for you big-time in 2021.

The Equinox

Finally, the Sun changes star sign on the 20th as it enters Aries on the day of the Equinox. And, four days later, there’s a New Moon in Aries, a symbol of new beginnings.

This offers you a chance to make a fresh start when it comes to money or self-value. This turns your focus towards possessions and assets and your money attitude. It’s here where you can get things moving and fast.

Aquarius March Horoscope 2020

2021 promises to be a big year for you and it’s this month, March 2020, which could point you in the right direction. In fact, this is likely to be one of the most important months of the year for you and there are a couple of reasons why.

Mercury in Aquarius

Firstly, Mercury re-enters your star sign, Aquarius, on the 4th where it remains until the 16th. As March begins, Mercury is still in its retrograde phase and has been on go slow until February 17th. When Mercury moves back into Aquarius, this feels easier for you. You may know what you want or find it easier to plan and get organised.

The turning point comes on the 10th when Mercury switches direction in Aquarius and begins its forward motion once again. Look out for a green light on or around this date, listen out for news or information that you’ve been waiting on.

Also, it’s an excellent date to initiate an important conversation, chase up correspondence or return to an idea or project that you began earlier this year. You may find it easier to think straight and make key decisions in your life from the 10th onwards.

Saturn’s Big Move

The big move, however, involves your ruling planet, Saturn. Saturn has been in Capricorn and the most hidden sector of your horoscope since December 2017. This month, on the 22nd, Saturn enters your star sign, Aquarius, for the first time in approximately 30 years. It takes Saturn almost 30 years to circuit the zodiac.

It might be helpful to think back to the last time Saturn was in Aquarius and what it meant for you then. Saturn does leave your star sign on July 1st this year but re-enters Aquarius on December 17th where it remains for the subsequent two years. And, in 2021, Saturn will be joined by Jupiter, a powerful duo.

So consider what this means for you. What are you ready to commit to? Alternatively, what do you want to bring an end? Saturn is the planet of authority and responsibility, also hard work and effort. Sometimes, when Saturn is in your star sign, this helps you flex your levels of self-discipline and you find you’re ready to commit to a new project or goal. You might be willing to take on a position of leadership too.

Yet, this can also coincide with a period in your life when you take on too much or you’re working overly hard. Be aware that this is possible and keep close tabs on your health, your attitude and well-being. Don’t allow the gloomy side of Saturn to take hold. Be vigilant.

Getting Tough & Letting Go

For some of you, the end of the month will be a time when you feel fired up and ready for a new challenge. This is because action planet, Mars, joins Saturn in Aquarius on the 30th and they meet at 0 degrees Aquarius on the 31st. This is strong planetary energy, great for physical goals and being bold and courageous. You may need to stand your ground and lay down the law.

Be wary of which battles you commit to and notice where your competitive nature kicks in. Also, ask whether you’re becoming too rigid or stubborn. It’s an important time for self reassessment with such strong planetary influence in your star sign.

There is a theme of letting things go as well during March and bringing certain matters to completion or an ending. This is because there’s strong influence on your previous star sign, Capricorn and the most hidden sector of your horoscope. Mars is here until the 30th and on the 20th and 23rd, there are powerful planetary aspects taking place.

Firstly, Mars unites with Jupiter in Capricorn on the 20th, then Pluto in Capricorn on the 23rd. The Mars/Jupiter combination could coincide with a religious experience or an inner breakthrough. You may be on retreat or be delving deep into a personal growth or transformational process. This could also be the theme of the Mars/Pluto conjunction as Pluto can take you deep within.

If you are under pressure or feeling stressed, however, consider carefully whom you want to be around and where you need to stop and let go. Powerful individuals could take their toll on your well-being, especially if someone’s energy is draining or too intense. Be firm and resolute with yourself and others.

Getting In Flow

Money matters require your attention this month but you may feel more in flow once Mercury is direct. The communication planet re-enters Pisces and your money sector on the 16th and only leaves its shadow phase on the 29th. So, there is a theme of revisiting money or reviewing your assets, possessions or values.

The Sun is in Pisces until the 20th and there’s a glorious Full Moon cutting across the Virgo/Pisces axis of the horoscope on the 9th. This Full Moon gains support from other planets and it’s a powerful date to make a key decision around money. For some of you, there may be an unexpected gift or bonus. Or perhaps, you have a revelation which helps you decide what steps to take next.

This could be linked to your home and family, your past or where you come from. You may find that good karma is repaid on or around the Full Moon. Plus, you currently have Uranus, your co-ruler in Taurus and your home and family sector. From the 5th, Venus, the planet of love and money is in this same sector of your horoscope.

And, on the 8th, Venus and Uranus unite. This combination promises the unexpected, a surprise get-together or a move that helps things slot into place. You might find the perfect lodger or dream home; you could come up with a way to make life easier for you and the ones you love. Use this powerful planetary energy to move things forward in a good way.

A Fresh Start

Finally, this month, the Sun’s move into Aries on the 20th heralds the Equinox and the start of a new zodiacal year. Aries rules your communication sector and it’s a spontaneous fiery energy which feels positive for you. Also, for your relationships as the Sun is your partner planet.

There’s a New Moon in Aries on the 24th, a symbol of new beginnings. Wherever you’ve felt held back in life, leap into action and get things moving. The New Moon in Aries promises a fresh start.
