We are constantly fascinated by what our zodiac sign says about our lives, whether it’s which zodiac signs are most compatible or how each sign handles conflict in relationships. In this March 2021 monthly horoscope, Astrologer Six, creator of BlackWomenCry, shares the astrological events happening this month that will affect every zodiac sign.
As the ice begins to melt and life re-enters our slowly awakening Earth, we’re required to be patient with ourselves and our surroundings. Change rarely comes without disruptions or difficulties, so be open to experiencing the occasional slip-up or dedicating extra time to ensure that projects are executed correctly.
The sun is currently in Pisces until March 20. Take the first half of the month as a time to meditate and reflect on the lessons learned from previous astrological seasons. Similar to the zodiac wheel, life is cyclical and we’re capable of utilizing the past to better understand how to navigate the future.
On March 4, Mars — the planet ruling drive and action — enters the sign Gemini, bringing with it more banter and witty expressions. Mars leaving the Earth sign Taurus, which forced us to move slowly and practice patience, won’t be an inconsequential transit. While Taurus energy likes to stay in its lane and focus on what’s in front of it, Mars in Gemini encourages us to branch out, as well as understand perspectives and rationales that differ from our own. The new moon on March 13 will bring a sense of emotional renewal. Noteworthy dreams and remarkable ideas will surface during this time, so be sure to take notes and meditate over possible new ventures.
After going retrograde in February, Mercury — the planet ruling over communication and thinking — is direct within the sign Aquarius. Agile Mercury will remain in its post-shadow until March 13, meaning that it’s retracing its retrograde movements through the sign Aquarius until it returns to the point before going retrograde on January 30. Take stock of the experiences had during Mercury retrograde periods. No matter how frustrating they can be, Mercury doesn’t have a vendetta against you. The post-shadow period is granting you time to recycle old material or ideas, along with making sure that you carefully improve on old projects.
On March 20, the Sun enters feisty fire sign Aries, bringing with it more opportunities to take risks and put ourselves out there, which is key to starting the astrological new year off on the right foot.
Happy Birthday, Aries!
