Your Monthly Horoscopes: March 2023

monthly horoscopes march 2023

Grab your cap and gown because March is for graduating into the next phase of your life! Three new eras commence in March as Saturn leaves Aquarius for Pisces (7th), Pluto leaves Capricorn for Aquarius (23rd) and Mars leaves Gemini for Cancer (25th). This is the vibe shift we’ve all been waiting for as seven month (Mars), three year (Saturn), and 15 year (Pluto) long transits conclude at the same time. It’s poignant that these shifts happen in the month that contains Pisces and Aries season, the bookends to the astrological year. Just as the sun is reborn on the spring equinox, so are we.

For those born between 1994-1996, 1964-1966 or 1935-1937, this month also marks the beginning of your Saturn return. You’re in good company with celebs like Saoirse Ronan, Sarah Jessica Parker and Jane Fonda for this cosmic coming-of-age.

There’s so many beginnings and endings, so much change at once, that this month may feel like a whirlwind. Specific events dates matter less than recognizing that this is a turning point. Just know that you’ll look back in the future and think that this was when everything changed. This isn’t to say that all our problems are going away. But there will be new problems, and couldn’t we all use at least a change of scenery?

(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that sign may provide further insight.)

(March 21 - April 19)

March 2023 Overview

  • Full Moon in Virgo (3/7): Intense day at Pilates class
  • New Moon in Aries (3/21): New moon, new you!
  • Other Key Dates: 3/11, 3/14, 3/16, 3/17, 3/19, 3/20, 3/25, 3/30

Time to take a step back and assess your priorities. Saturn enters your unconscious sector on the 7th ushering in a three-year period that will require you to let go of baggage and clean up what’s cluttering your mind, body and spirit. Doctor’s appointments, therapy sessions, and digital detoxes are all on the agenda. Think of this as less of an overhaul and more of a pruning. Just like it does for a houseplant, removing the overgrown branches and dying foliage allows you to thrive from the root up.

Love Horoscope

It’s easy to get what you want from lovers this month. The praise comes in fast and hot (especially around the 2nd when Venus and Jupiter make their once annual auspicious meeting in your sign). Before you dive deeper though, make sure it’s genuine care and not questionable love bombing.

Money Horoscope

Your personal finances have been in flux for many months, and on the 16th, Venus enters your money sector to smooth over the chaos. The temptation to treat yourself is there, but you’ll be happier if you choose to temper your impulses.

(April 20 - May 20)

March 2023 Overview

  • Full Moon in Virgo (3/7): An unexpected and hot date night!
  • New Moon in Aries (3/21): Revelations come when you stop scrolling
  • Other Key Dates: 3/2, 3/11, 2/16, 3/17, 3/20, 3/23, 3/30

Growing pains are hard, but stagnancy is worse. Saturn enters your community and friendship zone on the 7th kicking off a three-year period that will make it hard to maintain flimsy connections. The more serious you get about pursuing your goals, the less patience you have for anything superficial. The vibe shift this month is exciting and palpable, but it’s possible that you might throw yourself into the new too quickly, leading to another round of exhaustion and burnout. Maybe the goal isn’t to prove yourself after all. Let the work speak for itself.

Love Horoscope

The fog that’s been hanging over some of your closest relationships since last fall finally clears up this month. But not before you experience one final communication breakdown. That said, if you’re looking to make things official with someone special, the full moon in Virgo on the 7th is a great time for “the talk.”

Money Horoscope

The impulse you’ve had to solve every problem with retail therapy is taking its toll on you this month. Who needs all this stuff anyway? Schedule some time around the end of the month to purge your belongings and breathe a sigh of relief.

March 2023 Overview

  • Other Key Dates: 3/2, 3/11, 3/16, 3/17, 3/18, 3/19, 3/28

Experimentation is the key to happiness. Saturn enters your career and public image sector on the 7th, initiating a three-year period that will encourage you to push the limits of your professional ambitions and discover what success really means for you. What if taking the road less traveled leads you exactly where you need to go? Before you dive in, make sure you aren’t clinging to someone else’s idea of achievement as you’ll be happiest going your own way. This month is a whirlwind, but by the end of it, you’ll be initiating new partnerships and contracts of all kinds to help you along the journey.

Love Horoscope

There are so many reasons to celebrate your closest people this month. That said, you might feel like you’re giving all your attention to others when you could use a boost yourself. Mercury joins Jupiter on the 28th giving you a chance to reset relationships and speak your mind.

Money Horoscope

You’re used to fluctuations when it comes to your cash flow, but your expenses are piling up faster than usual this month. Mars enters your money sector on the 25th—a transit where money goes out as soon as it comes in. Be vigilant about your budget if you can.

The best teachers are those who always remain curious.  Saturn moves into your higher learning sector on the 7th, commencing a three-year period of serious study and legacy-building. Whether you’re working on a comprehensive artistic project, going back to school or becoming a mentor, you find yourself playing both the student and the teacher through the process. The new moon on the 21st marks a fresh start for your career and visibility that will continue to grow and expand at a rapid pace over the next few years. What you’ve been waiting for is finally here.

Love Horoscope

Your relationships are going to start feeling much more buoyant and freedom-oriented this month. You’ve done so much work on your boundaries over the last few years, but now it’s time to let yourself have a little bit more fun. Romantic prospects come through friends this month if you lean into connection.

Money Horoscope

All the hard work that you’ve been putting in since last year finally starts paying off this month as you get recognized and celebrated in your industry. This comes with higher visibility and a lot more pay. You can go into that meeting with your boss confident that you’re getting a raise.

  • New Moon in Aries (3/21): Plan your next vacation
  • Other Key Dates: 3/6, 3/15, 3/16, 3/17, 3/20

Life doesn’t make sense without interdependence. Saturn moves into your shared resources sector on the 8th initiating a three-year period of taking responsibility for what you owe. Bills come due, collaborations get serious and emotional catharsis is reached. This is heavy work, but you don’t have to do it alone. Despite the focus on money, relationships lean more transformational than transactional this month. Long held standoffs begin to thaw. After an extended period of feeling two steps behind, the new moon on the 20th has you setting goals and seeing the big picture.

Love Horoscope

The last few years have not been a very sexy time for you, Leo. But this month, thingsfinally loosen up and change for the better. As the month progresses, you experience less blocks and limitations in your dating life, and also feel less pressure to lock someone down for the sake of it.

Money Horoscope

If you’ve been avoiding checking your bank statements, the balances become impossible to ignore at the full moon in Virgo on the 7th. Use the information to figure out how to move forward in the second half of the month.

(August 23 - September 23)

March 2023 Overview

  • Full Moon in Virgo (3/7): A potent workout, massage or acupuncture sesh
  • New Moon in Aries (3/21): Meeting with a financial planner
  • Other Key Dates: 3/2, 3/11, 3/16, 3/17, 3/18, 3/19, 3/28

What seems straightforward isn’t so simple so keep thinking outside the box. Saturn moves into your relationship house on the 7th kicking off a three-year period of exploring what it is that you really want and need from other people. As the full moon on the same day in your sign reveals, the first step is choosing yourself. Confusion and disagreements are almost guaranteed as you navigate the uncomfortable feelings that come with advocating for your needs. But by month’s end, you’re confident that you have some solid people on your team.

Love Horoscope

Pisces season is usually the most romantic time of the month for you, Virgo, and this year is no different. But instead of date nights and sexy trips, you’re scheduling relationship check-ins and couple’s therapy. What’s more irresistible than going deep?

Money Horoscope

The new moon in Aries on the 21st is a great time to make a plan to get rid of your debt. If you’ve been thinking about picking up a side hustle or some freelancing gigs, now’s a great time to start planting those seeds.

  • Other Key Dates: 3/2, 3/11, 2/16, 3/17, 3/19, 3/20, 3/25, 3/30

Aristotle said “Excellence is a habit,” which applies very much to your horoscope this month. With Saturn moving into your house of daily labor on the 7th, you’re in for three years of building discipline in your day to day. Though there’s an urge to do all this work in isolation, what you’re figuring out this month is that you need to build a team. Who you partner with (in both your romantic and professional life) is going to make or break this process, and this month you have the power of attraction on your side. Put yourself out there and make some waves.

Love Horoscope

This is a huge month for your love life. If you’re looking, there are plenty of opportunities to connect with new people, and if you’re happily partnered, this is a month when you two grow even closer. The new moon in Aries on the 21st finds you excited to start a new relationship journey.

Money Horoscope

You’ve been dealing with so much stress over debts, taxes and unpaid invoices over the last year or so. Thankfully Venus enters your shared resources sector on the 16th giving you a chance to address problems and smooth things over with creditors and collections agencies. Keep your mind open for unexpected solutions.

(October 22 - November 21)

March 2023 Overview

  • Full Moon in Virgo (3/7): A profound night out with friends
  • New Moon in Aries (3/21): Return to your favorite yoga class
  • Other Key Dates: 3/11, 3/14, 3/16, 3/17, 3/19, 3/20, 3/25, 3/30

Your voice needs to be heard. Saturn enters the part of your chart that represents romance, creativity and children on the 7th, kicking off a three-year period where you will be challenged to create something that lasts. Though you might feel pressure to hit the ground running on this project (whether that’s getting pregnant, writing a book or starting to date), rushing into it won’t get things done any faster. If there’s confusion about where to start, follow your intuition. You’re meant to create something aligned with your values. Don’t settle for anything less.

Love Horoscope

Pisces season is always a sweet and sexy time for you, and this year is no different. But this time around, you’re less impressed with romantic gestures, and more so drawn to potential partners who can prove they’ve done the work.

Money Horoscope

If you still have debts and taxes from months (or years…) ago hanging over your head, you must deal with them this month. Though it feels overwhelming to tackle, the relief you’ll feel once it’s done is worth it. If you’ve been struggling at work, connect with like-minded colleagues in order to tap into new opportunities, especially around the Full Moon in Virgo on the 7th.

March 2023 Overview

  • Full Moon in Virgo (3/7): Breakthrough moment in your career or visibility
  • New Moon in Aries (3/21): Chill, creative day alone or with your kids
  • Other Key Dates: 3/2, 3/28

Time to realign with your true self and most basic needs. Saturn enters your home, family and privacy sector on the 7th, initiating a three-year period of deep focus on your foundations and internal life. What’s challenging this month is that there’s some overwhelming situations happening both at work and with other people that you want to give all your attention to instead. The longer you avoid focusing on yourself, the harder it will be to get to the root of the problem.

Love Horoscope

After seven long months, Mars finally leaves your relationship sector on the 25th. Whether you’ve been in the honeymoon phase of a new partnership or working through a divorce, you’re finally coming out of the haze and ready to focus on something else. The new moon in Aries on the 21st is a sweet, romantic day to go on a date and jumpstart your next era.

Money Horoscope

Watch out for some unexpected debts or expenses to pop up around the 25th when Mars enters your shared resources sector for the first time since June 2021. This transit (through May 20th) is also a great time to apply for loans or (aggressively) follow up on invoices.

Cultivate your environment like it’s a beautiful garden. Your ruling planet Saturn enters your communication sector on the 7th initiating a three-year process of pruning your daily schedule and routines. After the last few years of being careful about spending, you now feel more breathing room to upgrade your wardrobe, home and social life. You might even feel dangerously indulgent at times this month (especially once Venus enters your pleasure sector on the 16th). But think of it this way: if you focus on filling your days with pleasure and beauty, you won’t always be seeking an escape.

Love Horoscope

Love planet Venus enters your romance sector on the 16th making the second half of the month an incredibly sexy and sensual time for you. This is also a wonderful period for dreaming up creative projects, connecting with your inner child and working on self love.

Money Horoscope

Power planet Pluto enters your money sector on the 23rd kicking off an almost 20-year period that will transform your relationship to resources, security and personal finances. No big!

Congratulations! You’ve made it through three long years of Saturn in your sign! The discipline planet moves into your money and resources sector on the 7th launching a three-year audit of your effectiveness, self-worth and cash flow. You feel the pressure immediately to jump right into the deep end and start creating new structures. Why not change your job, start a business collaboration, and break up with your situationship right out the gate? The key is to tap into all the personal power and confidence you’ve built before taking any leaps. Remember: it’s OK to go slow.

Love Horoscope

Though most things are easier for you this month, you might find that your dates are distant, flaky or unwilling to commit. Once we hit Aries season on the 20th though, you make some powerful connections. Possibly with some people who were already in your social circle!

Money Horoscope

The full moon on the 7th falls in your shared resources sector making this month a potent time to apply for a loan, gain some new sources of income, or deal with outstanding debts.

(February 19 - March 20)

March 2023 Overview

  • Full Moon in Virgo (3/7): Make or break moment for a relationship
  • New Moon in Aries (3/21): Reassess your budget
  • Other Key Dates: 3/2, 3/28

It’s always darkest just before dawn. Saturn moves into your sign on the 7th, initiating a three-year period of accepting your own limitations. The last three years have at times been lonely and isolating, and you’ve spent so much of it stuck in your own head. With this transit comes a reckoning: what does it really mean to stay embodied? The key this month is to identify your best allies and resources for this journey. Who’s going to help you along the way?

Love Horoscope

The full moon in Virgo on the 7th falls in your relationship sector bringing a culmination to any romances or partnerships that began back in late August. This lunation isn’t all sweetness though, and you may get an unexpected reality check about where this is all going. Luckily you have enough faith in yourself to walk away from what isn’t for you.

Money Horoscope

This is a month of very good news for your finances! Venus and Jupiter make their once annual auspicious meeting in your money sector on the 2nd giving you more opportunities to earn or the courage to ask for a raise. Then on the 21st, the new moon in Aries is the perfect time to set budgeting goals for the next six months.
