Aries Horoscope March 2021

Equinox Point

March is a significant month for you for different reasons. Firstly, this is the time of the year when you’re preparing yourself ready for the Sun’s move into your star sign Aries on the 20th. This is the date of the Equinox and an important date in astrology as a new zodiac year begins.

The Equinox brings with it a sense of a fresh start, new energy and a desire to take action and fast. In the northern hemisphere, this coincides with the onset of spring and themes of sowing seeds and new ideas coming to fruition.

Pisces Season

There is, however, no straightforward linear progression leading up to the Equinox. At times, you may feel confused about what next or be underprepared or unready for your next steps.

The star sign before yours is Pisces, the last sign in the zodiac. The Sun is here until the 20th and talk planet Mercury enters Pisces on the 15th.

This is a time to go with the flow, do what feels right and trust your intuition. It’s a contemplative period in the year for you, a time when you’re wise to take stock and complete old projects before you begin anything new.

This is essential so consider how this applies to your own life. Certainly, you can come up with new ideas but don’t miss out on an important phase and leave a project or plan incomplete.

Your attention is turned inward when the Sun is in Pisces, ideal for being on a spiritual retreat or spending more time by yourself. There’s a theme of sacrifice or surrender.

This really kicks in during the New Moon in Pisces on the 13th which may bring an opportunity to connect with the divine or seek beauty in the world.

Continue to feel your way forward during March and know that you’re moving in the right direction.

If you’ve been been changing your mind recently or you’ve been in information overload, March’s astrology flicks the switch back on. Miscommunications begin to un-muddle and you won’t want to be held back by anyone, least of all yourself.

Mars In Gemini

This has a lot to do with the fact that, from the 4th onwards, your ruling planet Mars is in Gemini, the sign of communication. Expect to be busy, whether you’re commuting more than usual or you have various meetings and get-togethers taking place.

You benefit now from playing a key role in your local community, making new friends and contacts. Ensure networking and socialising are your top goals – on and off-line.

Mars in Gemini is a lively combination that flags up the importance of ‘people power’. Get on the right side of people who matter and you can make quick progress.

All forms of learning are recommended whether you go back to school, learn a language, take a new qualification or sign up for a course. This would be a good month to pass a test or sit an important exam.

On or around the 22nd, look out for someone who can help you become a voice or authority. Or, perhaps you’re the one who needs to step up and take on a position of responsibility. After a couple of months when life has been in retreat, things are beginning to rev up for you.

There may be times when you’re questioning what you’re doing, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The more you engage actively with your personal goals, the more you can discover insights and understanding that help you moving forwards.

Love Vibes

Love is also under the cosmic spotlight this month as lovely Venus enters your star sign, Aries, on the 21st. Plus, there’s a gorgeous Sun-Venus conjunction in Aries on the 26th two days before a glorious Full Moon in Libra and your relationship sector on the 28th.

You’re not shy if you’re a typical Sun Aries. Instead, you’re impulsive and daring. The Sun and Venus entering your star sign on the 20th & 21st respectively could kick-start your love life into action and fast.

Everything starts to move at a fast rate of knots in the last ten days of March. You’re out of the starting blocks of life and shooting off in all directions. It’s exciting and there’s a sense of renewal or rebirth, a chance to start over.

Ramp up the pace once the Sun’s on your side, put energy and dynamism into your personal goals, get fit in your mind, body and soul.

This is your time of year and, even though there will be stops and starts throughout March, you’re right to get ready for an important move in your life, a brand new chapter or beginning.

Gemini Horoscope March 2021

Your ruling planet Mercury was retrograde for most of February. This can be a time of misunderstandings when you’re wise to take a step back rather than push ahead.

In March, Mercury is moving forwards again in your fellow air sign Aquarius up until the 15th. Aquarius rules travel & study in your horoscope and any area of life where you broaden your horizons.

The stand out date is the 5th when Mercury teams up with lucky Jupiter in Aquarius, an ideal date to book a trip or sign up for a course. Listen out for good news.

Pisces Season

This month, the main focus is on the star sign Pisces and your career and vocation sector. The Sun is here until the 20th and your planet Mercury moves into Pisces on the 15th.

Therefore, this could turn out to be a significant month for your work and where you’re heading in life. Do bear in mind, however, that there will be times when you feel confused or you lose your way.

Your planet Mercury isn’t strong in Pisces. There may be too many options or possibilities and you find it hard to know which way to turn. You may feel emotionally overwhelmed or be experiencing information overload.

The key with Mercury in Pisces is to trust in life and go with the flow. Rather than trying to work everything out in your head, listen to your heart and what your intuition tells you. Do what feels right rather than what you think is right.

A lot depends on whether you enjoy what you do in life. If you’re living your dream and following your vocation, March could be an inspirational month for you.

Alternatively, if you know you’re on the wrong path and bored with your routine, it may feel as if you’re swimming against the tide rather than in flow with life.

This month’s New Moon on the 13th falls in Pisces, an excellent date to aim high and follow your dreams. New Moons are synonymous with new beginnings. This New Moon is especially beautiful as it falls next to a stunning Venus-Neptune conjunction.

If you work in the arts or creative industries, you could bring something beautiful to life on or around this New Moon. It’s an excellent New Moon for influencing others or appearing in the media. The Neptune vibe is strong on the 11th, 14th & 30th.

Find Your Muse

The other planet in Pisces until the 21st is Venus, the planet of relating. This indicates that it’s a good month to find your muse and consider what role other people play in your progress or success.

You might see how crucial someone else’s involvement is in a project or  your career path. You may see clearly who inspires you and the reverse, i.e. who disappoints you or lets you down. Recognise the significance of other people in your life and this will help you make the right moves.

While Venus is in Pisces, look out for women of influence, use your connections and lean on other people for support and advice.

There’s a lot of movement and energy in your career & vocation sector but not necessarily in a straight line. The theme of diversity runs strong throughout March. Use your trickster ways to good effect.

Friends & Romance

Some of you will be more involved with group activities later this month as the star sign Aries is prominent after the 20th, the day of the Equinox. Aries rules friends, also wider society, connections and group dynamics in your horoscope. This is not a time to go it alone.

Key dates for group connections are the 26th, the day of a Sun-Venus conjunction in Aries, and the 28th when there’s a Full Moon cutting across the Aries-Libra axis of the zodiac. These could be key dates for your interactions with others.

The 28th would be a great date for a social get-together and love is also in the mix. In fact, if you’re looking for love, be aware that love and friendship go hand in hand this month, especially once Venus enters Aries on the 21st.

The Full Moon in Libra and your romance sector has a healing vibe. The end of the month could bring excitement your way on the love front or you feel more ready to prioritise a close relationship.

Action Stations

Finally, it’s important to note that you have action planet Mars in your star sign Gemini throughout March which is a real adrenalin rush. This is good news for your stamina and physical activities. It suggests you’ll be feeling ambitious about getting ahead and pursuing your personal goals and aims.

Yet, do be aware that with Mars in Gemini you may want everything to happen overnight. Mercury might be back up to speed this month and you’re moving in the right direction but there may be a tendency to favour top speed or nothing at all.

Mars’ connection with Saturn on the 22nd is a reminder to play the long game and keep your gaze on your future goals.

Think of life as a dance this month and you’ll get more done than expecting everything to proceed in an orderly fashion. That’s not to say you can’t enjoy yourself and you may even feel delighted or liberated after recent setbacks or uncertainty.

Cancer Horoscope March 2021

Beauty & Truth

This month brings a shift in your life as both the Sun and relating planet, Venus, are in your fellow water sign Pisces until the 20th & 21st respectively. This feels creative for you and any activity that takes you beyond the everyday is recommended.

Pisces rules travel and study in your horoscope, it’s about the bigger picture and lining up adventures and new experiences. If last month’s Mercury retrograde phase brought uncertainty or indecision, you can now start to trust your intuition and make significant moves.

This combination suggests you’ll be around other people who inspire you, especially women. Global connections feature strongly so accept invitations that move you beyond your own four walls. Reach out to other people and be pro-active in life.

If you’re a true Sun Cancer, you have a vivid imagination and this is an excellent time to learn more, to be curious and soul-led. This is especially true of the New Moon in Pisces on the 13th. New Moons are a symbol of new beginnings and an ideal time to sow seeds.

Plus, this New Moon falls next to a stunning Venus-Neptune conjunction in Pisces on the 14th. This whole combination feels beautiful, spiritual and connects you with life beyond the ego. Seek divine guidance on or around the New Moon.

Career Moves

This month’s astrology could awaken new ideas and opportunities for you with regard to your career and vocation – allow yourself to dream. The focus is on these key areas of your life once the personal planets move into Aries.

The 20th is one of the most significant dates this month if not all year. This is when the Sun moves into Aries, the first sign of the zodiac and a new zodiac cycle begins.

This coincides with the Equinox and, in the northern hemisphere, it symbolises the onset of spring. New beginnings, a chance to sow seeds, to start over in some way. Dust off your ambition, get on track with where you’re heading and why.

The more seeds you sow, the more chance you have of something taking root, growing and flourishing. Not all seeds come to fruition. Yet, you’ll find out which seeds to nurture and which are going nowhere as the year progresses.

Work/Life Balance

The Full Moon on the 28th is a pivotal Full Moon for you. This Full Moon cuts across the Aries-Libra axis of the zodiac highlighting your work and career, your home and family. This is about your foundations, where you come from and where you’re heading.

As a Moon child, you are often closely attuned to the Moon’s phases. Use the Full Moon energy to make clear decisions about where your priorities lie. Balance is a key feature of the Full Moon in Libra – working to heal oppositions in your life and to find a balanced lifestyle.

This is particularly important as Aries is a fast-paced energy and planets in Aries demand your attention in the last ten days of the month. Acting immediately doesn’t always come easily to you but bear this in mind, be more decisive in your actions and ask for help when you need it.

You might be in overload and ready for a break. Or, perhaps you have new opportunities piling up and don’t know which way to turn. It feels full and busy.

If you take on a new responsibility or role towards the end of this month, balance this with self care. Your health and well-being are under the cosmic spotlight too and require attention.

Inner Work

It’s also important to find a way to lessen your stress levels. You might not want to take on too much or put added pressure on yourself. The planet that represents anger, Mars, enters Gemini and the most hidden sector of your horoscope on the 4th.

Take care that you don’t turn your anger in on yourself. If you’re feeling irritated or frustrated, find a positive outlet for your emotions. Same goes for any form of negative thinking. Do whatever you can to knock it on the head and not be overly critical.

This combination indicates that you may be working behind the scenes or be busy with a project which you’re not yet ready to show the world. You’re collecting your own thoughts or getting ideas together. There’s no rush to take things further if you choose not to.

Instead, prioritise the work you do on yourself and take good care of you. If you enjoy reading, lose yourself in a good book. If you find that writing or journalling help you make sense of your busy mind, start a daily ritual.

Take your time when it comes to personal issues and projects. Know that it’s enough that you’re working towards them. If you’re dealing with secrets or you don’t want to hurt someone close by revealing your inner thoughts, keep matters to yourself. Make time for privacy.

A Final Word

There’s a lucky Mercury-Jupiter conjunction on the 5th in your joint finance sector. Plus, a Mars-Saturn aspect on the 22nd means it’s an ideal month to trust your intuition and make wise decisions regarding money matters. Keep your gaze on your long-term goals.

Taurus Horoscope March 2021

Your ruling planet Venus is in water sign Pisces until the 21st. Venus loves to be in Pisces, the boundless star sign and this combination is about unconditional love. This can be love for someone close, a good friend or life itself.

Love & Gratitude

It’s a positive time to practise love and gratitude. Be kind and caring and you open yourself up to receive the same in return. There’s a theme of surrender inherent within the star sign Pisces and this whole combination favours forgiveness and letting go of past hurts.

This theme is particularly strong during the New Moon in Pisces on the 13th. This New Moon takes place the day before a Venus-Neptune conjunction in Pisces and this favours beauty, kindness and divine guidance.

This is a promising New Moon to heal any rifts and practise the art of forgiveness. It’s potentially a powerful period in the month for friendship, group connections and teamwork.

Aries Season

The 20th is the Equinox, the date when the Sun moves into Aries and starts its journey around the zodiac once again. Venus joins the Sun in your preceding star sign Aries on the 21st.

This is the most hidden sector of your horoscope. You might find that secrets emerge or news that’s been hidden comes to light. The focus is on your inner world whether you’re dealing with a sensitive issue or a personal challenge.

Yes, there’s a chance for progress but this may mean letting go of certain plans or things that haven’t worked out. In a way, it’s about wrapping things up and bringing projects to completion so you can create the space for new ideas and activities to emerge.

Traditionally, when planets are in Aries, this is about being on your own rather than with other people. There’s a solitary feel to Aries, the sign linked to the individual.

Sometimes, events conspire against you to bring a period of solitude or alone-ness. You may be feeling under the weather or want more time to yourself to deal with a personal situation.

Other times, you’re looking after people who need you. This brings out the caring side of your nature, your earth mother archetype.

Full Moon Vibes

The Full Moon on the 28th falls in the sign of balance, Libra. The Aries/Libra axis of the zodiac represents your work and routine, your lifestyle and health. Self-care is paramount. Also, how you care for others and what you give to other people in your life.

This is a time to mull things over, consider what’s important in your life and what next. You might even be peeling away the layers to reveal the true you.

Work & Money

One area of your life where you can make progress this month is money and it’s here where you’re wise to focus your ambition.

This is because action planet Mars enters Gemini and your personal money sector on the 4th and plays a key role in your financial fortunes. Gemini is the sign of communication. Draw up new plans, do your accounts and be vocal in what you want to achieve financially.

The 5th is a stellar date for communicating what you do and sharing your ideas with the world. The 22nd is a date to nail a deal or finalise a money or work contract. Keep your eyes firmly fixed on your long-term goals and stay steady in your belief.

Private Love

Finally, when it comes to love, Venus’ move into Aries on the 21st indicates that things are happening behind the scenes or in private. This may be a love affair you want to keep secret or unrequited feelings.

Perhaps, you’re trying to let go of someone from your past and even though you’re making progress, you’re not ready. This is par for the course with Venus in the most hidden sector of your horoscope. Work things out internally rather than making any sudden moves. Mid-April is when love will reach a new and more fulfilling stage.

In general, this is a top month to get people on your side, ask for support or friendship when you need it and don’t feel that you have to try and achieve the impossible. As a Sun Taurus, you know more than most that happiness comes via contentment and the easy, natural flow of life.

Full Moon in Virgo, February 27,2021

We’re finally beginning to see a transition back to fewer planets in air on this Full Moon at 08° 57′ Virgo on 27 February 2021, 00:17 AM PST. Venus has joined the Sun and Neptune in Pisces, leaving Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius. Additionally the Pisces Sun and Virgo Moon are harmoniously aspecting Uranus in Taurus, a key ingredient for positive yet practical change. While there are still more planets in fixed signs, mutable energy is on the rise, adding more flexibility as well as a willingness to see more options.

We may finally begin to realize Uranus in Taurus can bring about helpful change on this lunation with the trine to the Virgo Moon and sextile to the Pisces Sun. Small, manageable steps are the best way to integrate change in our daily lives and that is something the Virgo Moon understands quite well. If we gradually let go of our old emotional security blankets while replacing them with improved tools for creating the foundation for a better life, we’ll be OK. The Pisces Sun-Uranus in Taurus sextile is excellent for making those amazing intuitive leaps Pisces is so good at. Surprisingly we usually know what is right for us and what is not . . . whether we pay attention to that inner knowledge is another story. 🙂

Since the Saturn in Aquarius-Uranus in Taurus square is still very much in play on this lunation, we can’t overlook how Saturn connects to the luminaries. It is semi-sextile the Pisces Sun and inconjunct the Virgo Moon. At the very least, we need to acknowledge the importance of boundaries and why following safety rules is usually a good idea. Saturn in Aquarius can be a bit of a ‘know it all’ which doesn’t help matters. A mutable lesson that may come in handy is being open to options and learning to make adjustments while working within the system. Mutable signs teach us flexibility and that’s been in short supply for the last few months. We’ll need to cultivate that flexibility until mid-summer because the Saturn-Uranus square remains within a degree or two of exact until then.

A couple of planets still in Aquarius are Mercury and Jupiter. These two are making a waxing conjunction which will be exact on March 4. This bright, upbeat pairing is wonderful for clear, rational thought while remaining on the optimistic side. Now that Mercury is direct and back up to speed, we can use the power of this conjunction to make necessary revisions to plans concocted during the Mercury retrograde. Once those plans are cleaned up and ready to go, we can start implementing them.

A huge power source on this lunation is the Mars in Taurus-Pluto in Capricorn trine. This is a strong, steady energy we can apply to either getting projects off the ground or invigorating existing ones. Rather than rushing around, choose to work in a slow, steady, consistent way for best results.

While Venus and Neptune in Pisces are sitting on the sidelines for now, they both play a major role in the upcoming New Moon in Pisces. A small hint . . . both are part of a Pisces Stellium with the Sun and Moon!

The Full Moon in Virgo is naturally more focused on what’s happening in our daily lives and restoring a sense of health and well being. We now have a better balance both in the elements and mode than we’ve seen in a few months, and with the help of the Virgo-Pisces axis we can begin to put our lives in order again. Renewing the foundations in our lives is a key component to being more effective in the larger world. Now is the perfect time to do so. As always, practice kindness, tolerance and cultivate a sense of the absurd because all of those keep us sane. Peace and Love to all.

Lockdown Update: Watch What Jupiter Does

Watch What Jupiter Does

So when does Jupiter move away from Saturn? As I’m writing to you, Jupiter is almost 8 degrees away from Saturn, the maximum orb of a conjunction. In fact, on February 26, 2021, Jupiter is at 16 Aquarius and Saturn is at 8 Aquarius. Jupiter is racing this year, desperately trying to escape Saturn’s clutches?

What has occurred this week here in the UK is our ‘timeline to freedom’ and key dates leading us out of the lockdown situation. There are 4 steps or stages and if you look at the astrology, they coincide with Jupiter’s movements this year.

So, if you want to know about the timing of the virus/restrictions, watch what Jupiter does. Here are the dates of the 4 steps with a few examples:

Step 1 – March 8, 2021 – Schools return (Jupiter rules education). Jupiter is now more than 8 degrees separating away from Saturn

Step 2 – April 12, 2021 – Hospitality venues can open outdoors (Jupiter’s the jovial planet, a symbol of bonhomie).

This is the date of the New Moon at 22 Aries, a symbol of new beginnings and Jupiter is sextile this New Moon at 26 Aquarius.

Step 3 – May 17, 2021 – Most social contact rules are being lifted, entertainment is reinstated, although with restrictions.

This is a significant shift because on May 14, 2021, Jupiter enters Pisces and its own sign of rulership. This was always going to be a green light for the Arts and Jupiter remains in Pisces until July 28, 2021.

Step 4 – June 21, 2021 – Travel opens up – the day of the Solstice, an auspicious date in astrology when the Sun is at its brightest in the northern hemisphere. (Jupiter rules travel and Jupiter’s transit through Pisces and its sign of rulership always looked like a window of opportunity for travel).

Plus, Jupiter switches direction to retrograde motion on June 20, 2021, again emphasising the significance of this key planet close to all four dates.

[N.b. there’s already talk that the May date, when Jupiter is in Pisces will speed up the unlocking of restrictions].

Looking Ahead

Jupiter moves back into Aquarius from July 28 to December 29, 2021, so we may see more restrictions later this year, when Jupiter is in Saturn’s sign of rulership once again.

However, Jupiter never returns to within an 8 degree orb of Saturn. And, at the end of 2021, Jupiter returns to Pisces, its sign of rulership, hopefully bestowing us with more of its good fortune.

This is the timeline for here in the UK. What’s happening in your country? Is it helpful to watch what Jupiter does?
