And everyone gets a boost of confidence once Aries season begins on Monday, March 20. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, which explains its bold influence, and it also marks the start of the astrological new year. It’s also the date of the Spring Equinox, which in very Aries fashion, is a celebration of life, growth, joy, and abundance. When the sky goes dark on Tuesday, March 21, with a new moon in Aries, it’s the perfect night to set intentions regarding what you wish to manifest.
Pluto, the lord of the underworld and the planet of transformation, is what we call an outer planet, so it only changes signs about once a generation (compared to how frequently planets such as Mercury moves around). While it will bounce back to Capricorn a few times, it enters Aquarius on Thursday, March 23, where it will eventually stay all the way through 2044. Astrologers see this ushering in a new age of humanitarians and collective caring but check your horoscope to learn what it means for your sign. Finally, the fighter planet Mars enters sweet Cancer on Saturday, March 25, and as a result, no one is in the mood to fight. That takes far too much energy. The end of the month is for movies and snuggles.

Whether you’re growing closer to new friends or using connections to network, you experience joy and growth in your platonic relationships this month. And, while the stars point to pleasure in your love life, perhaps the biggest change comes from Pluto, the planet of death and rebirth when it transits into your 10th House of Social Status and sets the stage for your career for the next two decades.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Building platonic relationships is a central theme for you this month, Gemini. Not only do friends provide the stable foundation that allows you to enjoy epic romances, but there are even networking opportunities afoot this month. While March is primarily about building friendships and accepting social opportunities (and don’t worry, there are sexy times to be had), the month comes to a close on a spiritual note, thanks to big moves from Pluto, the ruler of the underworld. Read your full March horoscope here, Gemini.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
A full moon early in March creates an opportunity for misunderstandings, so allow yourself to be fabulous and lazy and lounge at home. When strict Saturn enters poetic Pisces, your creative side pays off, Cancer. While horoscopes can’t make monetary promises in this economy, they can say that this combination of energies is excellent for whatever artistic endeavors you have going on at the moment. You find yourself thankful for the rest around the full moon because, by the end of March, your calendar is filled with social invitations from friends and networking opportunities. Are you ready to come out of your crab shell and step into the spotlight? Read your full March horoscope here, Cancer.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
March is busy, Leo, so make sure to get in enough cat naps. The primary theme worth mentioning is that your romantic life, and sexuality, may be going through a transformation right now. Your job is not to judge but to watch what unfolds and to love yourself for the fluid creature you are. If you find yourself feeling restless or unhappy in your romantic situation, take the time to check in with yourself and then manifest the necessary steps that need to be done. But love is looking good. When Pluto makes a once-in-a-generation transit, every other star sign is jealous that yours lights up your 7th House of Partnership.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You can’t control everything, Virgo, but you can work on controlling your perspective. A positive attitude will go a long way this month, especially during the full moon in your sign on Tuesday, March 7. Saturn also enters your 7th House of Partnership this night, so this lunation is one for romance, and you’ll appreciate it the most if you can stay grounded in the present. When Aries season begins, you see yourself having a lot of fun, whether discovering different makeup looks or exploring different avenues of pleasure. Read your full March horoscope here, Virgo.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libra, you feel a bit lethargic when the month starts, but that’s okay. You like gossip too much to be allowed out during the full moon in Virgo, anyway, so get cozy at home. Your sex life comes into the spotlight, and you’re craving something transformative and spiritual, even in casual affairs. The only question is, will you lower your emotional walls, stop acting like a cliche air sign, and let anyone in? Read your full March horoscope here, Libra.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
March is a busy month for you, Scorpio. You see yourself dancing (and maybe making out) with friends and momentum in your home life. The stars have so much to offer in the way of relationships, but there’s one that genuinely needs work before you can enjoy the pleasure of others, and that’s your relationship with yourself. This month tasks you with embracing your intensity and leaning into self-care to lower your Scorpio stinger before it causes harm. Read your full March horoscope here, Scorpio.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
A full moon early in the month asks you to learn a lesson you’ve worked on before (sorry, not sorry), and that’s to drop the drama, Sagittarius. Big changes are happening in your life, and you’ll handle them more gracefully if there’s calm on the homefront. And, regarding your personal life, your theme for March is communication. Many Sags will have honest talks about sex this month, whether you’re asking about a devious fantasy or erecting boundaries and taking a break from dating. Finally, Pluto, the planet of death and rebirth, begins a transit that only happens once a generation, and as a result, your communication methods will never be the same. Read your full March horoscope here, Sagittarius.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Once again, Capricorn, the stars are asking you to put effort into your work/life balance. You might be stressed out this month but won’t be bored. More work is coming your way, and you’ll need a solid foundation of support from friends and family to handle it. While there’s plenty to read this month about your relationships, you are an earth sign who loves tangible success, Capricorn, so you must click to learn what Pluto has in store for you. Unfortunately, astrologers can’t promise money, but let’s have some fun and talk about why the stars indicate abundance for the next few (decades!) of your life. Read your full March horoscope here, Capricorn.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Although you have a reputation for ghosting, Aquarius, March reminds you of the power of effective communication. You can feel guilty for taking time for yourself or enjoying earthly pleasures; perhaps it’s the humanitarian in you. However, this month, Saturn, which is basically the dominatrix of the zodiac, says that you have to treat yourself. Finally, Pluto, the ruler of the underworld, which only changes planets once a generation, enters yours, Aquarius. Read to learn what that means for you. Read your full March horoscope here, Aquarius.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Don’t cry because the sun leaves your sign, Pisces. Smile because it enters hungry Aries, and strict Saturn is here to whip your life into shape. March sees you connecting with friends and remembering how fun life can be as a result. And, while no responsible astrologer can promise in this economy, the stars indicate blessings on the professional front, in part thanks to a dark and mysterious new moon. Plus, you must hear what Pluto, the lord of the underworld, is up to this month. Read your full March horoscope here, Pisces.
