March 2023 is that month of the year that everyone is excited about – and a bit frightened of.
In March, the 2 “giants”, Pluto and Aquarius, change signs. I can’t emphasize enough what a bit of a deal this is.
On March 12th, 2023 Jupiter and Chiron meet in a rare conjunction in Aries. This transit is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get in touch with our identity wound and heal it.
In a regular month we have 1, maxim 2 conjunctions… in March 2023, we have a record of 7 conjunctions! Conjunctions are when new planetary cycles begin. This is a very strong forward momentum energy.
On March 21st, 2023 we have a New Moon in the first degree of the zodiac (0° Aries). That’s another huge portal that is being opened.
March 2023 is one of those moments in time that we will come back to again and again. Whether or not something concrete happens in your life – this is when major seeds are being planted. This is when completely new chapters in your life are being written.
But let’s take a look at the most important transits of the month:
March 2nd-3rd, 2023 – Venus Conjunct Jupiter And Chiron
On March 2nd, Venus is conjunct Jupiter at 12° Aries. One day later, Venus is conjunct Chiron at 13° Aries.
Normally, Venus conjunct Jupiter is one of the 5-star transits of the year. Venus conjunct Jupiter is a bubbly, optimistic energy that helps us attract what we want.
This particular Venus-Jupiter conjunction is a bit different. Venus and Jupiter also conjunct Chiron; this time, the emphasis is on healing our emotional and relationship wounds.
You may become painfully aware of how some repressed emotional wounds are influencing your life and your relationships. This sudden awareness of the pattern will help you break the emotional cycle that has been chaining you down for so long.
You will no longer tolerate loose boundaries. You will no longer tolerate living other people’s lives. You will no longer accept living a life that is not an expression of YOUR wants, goals, and potential.
The triple Venus-Jupiter-Chiron conjunction is an incredible opportunity to reclaim yourself.
Be careful! The transit can stir some deep, painful emotions. Don’t respond with temper tantrums. Use these powerful emotions to get in touch with yourself and make the necessary changes from a place of awareness.
March 2nd, 2023 – Mercury Conjunct Saturn
On March 2nd, 2023 Mercury is conjunct Saturn at 29° Aquarius.
29° degree is called an anaretic degree, and it brings important culminations and endings. This is the last transit Saturn makes before leaving Aquarius for good.
There is a sense of urgency in the air. You may feel that this is your last chance to do something that is important to you. You may finally get a resolution on a topic you’ve been working on for weeks, months, or even years. Important news, announcements and outcomes will be revealed.
March 7th, 2023 – Saturn Enters Pisces
On March 7th, 2023 Saturn leaves Aquarius and enters Pisces.
This is one of the BIG transits of the year. One area of your life will come to a natural end; and a new door will be open.
Saturn in Pisces will have quite a different vibe from Pluto in Aquarius.
Saturn in Pisces will ask us to find a deeper meaning in our lives. We’ve been there, done that, now what? What does it all mean? Saturn in Pisces is our opportunity to get clarity around our deepest dreams.
March 7th, 2023 – Full Moon In Virgo
On March 7th, 2023 we have a Full Moon at 16° Virgo.
The Full Moon in Virgo is trine Uranus (at 15° Taurus) and square Mars (at 21° Gemini).
This highly energetic Full Moon makes me think of the 7 of Cups Tarot card. We may have lots of options to choose from. But too many opportunities can bring confusion. Which one should we focus on?
Thankfully, the common-sense Virgo energy will help us choose wisely. It’s not about quantity, but about quality.
March 12th, 2023 – Jupiter Conjunct Chiron
On March 12th, 2023 Jupiter is conjunct Chiron. This is once again one of the most important transits of the year. I know I keep repeating myself but March 2023 is really when all the action happens.
You have felt the Jupiter-Chiron conjunction building up for more than a month now. We are really feeling this transit at a collective level. We all feel vulnerable and exposed.
Old wounds will resurface and we will again be reminded of painful experiences we haven’t fully processed. Jupiter conjunct Chiron will help us connect the dots and see what’s the bigger picture behind these wounds, revealing the crucial role they have served in our development.
Jupiter conjunct Chiron is also a great moment in time to find a teacher, a guide, or to become a teacher yourself.
March 16th, 2023 – Venus Enters Taurus
On March 16th, 2023, Venus enters Taurus, her domicile sign. We all know that when Venus is happy, everyone is happy. Amid turbulent transits, Venus in Taurus is that sweet reminder that everything will be alright.
March 16th, 2023 – Mercury Conjunct Sun
On March 16th, 2023, Mercury is conjunct Sun at 27° Pisces.
In March, there’s Saturn, there’s Pluto, there’s Jupiter, there’s Chiron, there’s just so much going on!
And one of the extra things on your plate is the Mercury-Sun conjunction in Pisces.
We are now in the middle of the current Mercury cycle which started back in early January. A project you’ve been working on will now come to life. Some new information you get access to might help you make an important decision.
March 19th, 2023 – Mercury Enters Aries
On March 19th, 2023 Mercury enters Aries.
Mercury will sprint through the first sign of the zodiac. We have only 16 days of Mercury in Aries!
This month, we have a very interesting astrological backdrop where on one hand we are asked to deal with lots of change, and on the other, we don’t really have time to process it (Mercury travels super fast, all planets are direct).
In March, there is no guide or compass. We will have to go with the flow.
March 20th, 2023 – Sun Enters Aries
On March 20th, 2022 Sun enters Aries and we have the Spring Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere and the Autumn Equinox in the Southern Hemisphere. No matter where you live on Earth, the day is equal to the night.
0° Aries is the first degree of the zodiac, so Sun’s ingress into Aries also marks the beginning of a new astrological year. This is a great time to press the ‘reset’ button and start all over again.
The upcoming month is also when we celebrate the Aries people in our lives. We all have something to learn from Aries’ boldness and drive.
This is a time to “just do it” – to follow your instinct and step outside your comfort zone. If something feels right, then it probably is!
March 21st, 2023 – New Moon In Aries
Soon after the Sun moves into Aries, the Moon joins in, so on March 21st, 2023, we have a New Moon at 0° Aries.
The New Moon is conjunct Neptune (25° Pisces), conjunct Mercury (5° Aries), sexile Pluto (29° Aquarius) and square Mars (28° Gemini).
The New Moon in Aries is our bridge between life before March 2023, and life after March 2023. We are still anchored in our our dreams and ideas (New Moon conjunct Neptune). But we now seize new opportunities (New Moon conjunct Mercury).
Change is in the air! There’s an impatience to “act now, or never” (New Moon square Mars). Thankfully, Pluto is there to support us. The new chapter of our lives is build on the solid foundations of our past efforts.
March 23rd, 2023 – Pluto Enters Aquarius
On March 23rd, 2023, Pluto enters Aquarius.
Pluto’s ingress into Aquarius is by far the most important transit of the year, and if you have planets or angles in Aquarius, one of the most important transits of your life.
Pluto only changes signs once every 20 years on average, so when it moves into a different sign, it will start to activate a completely different area of your chart. The impact will be quite dramatic.
Pluto will only spend 3 months in Aquarius in 2023, but that’s enough to give us a taste of what’s about to come in the next 20 years of our life.
I will write an extensive report about Pluto in Aquarius closer to the date. In Plutonic fashion, we are also preparing something behind the scenes at the Astro Butterfly school – more details coming soon.
March 25th, 2023 – Mars Enters Cancer
On March 25th, 2023, Mars enters Cancer. Even if Mars is in fall in Cancer, it’s a fair assumption to say that most people must be looking forward to Mars finally switching signs. It’s been a long 8 months. We are so much “done” with Mars in Gemini. A change – any change – is welcome!
March 28th, 2023 – Mercury Conjunct Jupiter
On March 28th, 2023, Mercury is conjunct Jupiter at 18° Aries.
Mercury’s yearly encounter with Jupiter is our opportunity to go BIG in everything that Mercury stands for. If you want to give a speech or a presentation for example, then your message will be more inspirational and reach more people’s hearts.
With Jupiter, there’s also a tendency to exaggerate or over-idealize an idea, but sometimes we need Jupiter’s infusion of optimism to articulate something that is important and needs to be heard.
March 30th, 2023 – Venus Conjunct Uranus
March 2023 ends on a high note with a Venus-Uranus conjunction at 16° Taurus.
We had an identical Venus-Uranus conjunction (at 16° Taurus) in June 2022. This is v.2 of last year’s transit. Some surprise encounters and opportunities may set you on an exciting, new trajectory in your life.
