It’s another month, which means we have another batch of horoscopes. Come and get it, ladies. What’s going on in March? UM, A LOT. February may have been a difficult month due to the black moon, but March may be even more challenging. And just a refresher, February’s black moon simply meant that it was a month without a single full moon. And so, many signs may have felt scattered, lost, or all sorts of other things due to this black moon situation. While March doesn’t have a black moon, it does have a lot of fun things going on in the stars.
First things first, it’s Pisces season, y’all. Pisces are dreamy, intuitive, and whimsical creatures. They’re like the mermaid-fairy-princesses of the zodiac signs. And so, the month may kick off with you feeling a bit more dreamy than usual. March, however, shifts into Aries season, which is definitely not marked by dreaminess. Instead, Aries season is about competition, ambition, and courage. It’s a season that often pushes signs out of their comfort zone and towards their big goals.
On top of all that fun, Mercury goes into retrograde on the 22nd. I know, I know. But we’re going to get through it. It’s the first Mercury retrograde of 2018 and we’ve got to put on a brave face, ladies. Lastly, March is stacked with a full moon on the 1st, new moon on the 17th, and full moon on the 31st. Like we said, there's a lot going on in March.
Yes, it’s a challenging month, but it’s also a rewarding month. And, just a fun reminder about March, spring comes back! That’s right: sun, flowers, grass, and no more snow! It's time to change out of the leggings and leave the house because the sun will return to us all in March! Praise be! To prepare for springtime and Mercury in retrograde, your March 2018 horoscope is below.
24 Pisces: Try To Stay Calm Because March Is Pretty Wild
Pisces, February treated you well. While February's black moon may have made many signs feel like they were running in place or scattered brained, you were able to be calm, serene, and meditative. And so, the rush of March may feel like a cold, hard slap in the face. Sorry, girl.
The full moon on the 1st will kick start the old hustle and bustle. If you can find a way to bring that particular calming energy along with you in March, you’ll be greatly rewarded. Yes, March will be a month of forward action, progression, and evolution, but having a calm, cool, and gentle mindset will help you approach these new opportunities with the right resources for achievement.
As March progresses, you’ll find it even harder to achieve inner peace because there will be a new moon on the 17th, we will enter Aries season on the 21st, and Mercury will go into retrograde on the 22nd. I KNOW, RIGHT? It’s a lot to swallow and it may make communication all the more difficult, but don’t let this deter you from making progress in your goals. Keep that peace, girl.
23 Pisces Love ‘ Scope: Well, At Least It Starts Off Steamy
While it’s still Pisces season, the sun will be shining down on your gentle, intuitive, and dreamy nature. Others will be drawn to your fairy-like personality in the beginning of the month. However, this dreamy personality of yours may not come across as flattering when Mercury enters retrograde on the 22nd. Instead of seeming like the flowy goddess you are, you may come across as aloof, unaware, and naive. This is simply what happens during Mercury in retrograde, as communications often get jumbled and confused. And so, if you’re single and looking to make a connection, the beginning of the month will be much steamier than the end of the month.
If you’re in a relationship, avoid making any big decisions after the 22nd, decisions made during Mercury in retrograde also backfire. Though, the 17th could be a great time to spice up your relationship if it’s hit a dull patch. If you’re looking to bring a little bit of flavor back into your love life – whether you’re single or taken – the 17th is a great time to do so.
22 Aries: You'll Make Progress, But It'll Take A LOT Of Work
Aries, the sun is shining bring on Aries season starting on the 21st! So, happy Aries season! However, it will also be a difficult month for you, Aries.

As an Aries, you love to be moving forward all times in all your goals. Thankfully, you’ll feel a boast of energy from the new moon on the 17th and Aries season on the 21st. About mid-month, you’ll be ready to crush the game.
However, career achievements will be difficult. With Mars in your career specter, you’ll likely face some challenges at work. Of course, you’re not afraid of challenges, but the fact that Mercury is in retrograde may make those challenges even more… well, challenging. In March, you’ll achieve the forward progress you longed for in February, but it will take a lot of energy to get there.
21 Aries Love ‘Scope: It's A Really Good AND Really Bad Month For Relationships
Aries, it’s a good and a bad month for love.

If you’re hitting it off with anyone in particular, the new moon on the 17th is a great time to embark on a new relationship. All good news, right? Well, not so fast.
On the 22nd Mercury, which is in your sign girlfriend, goes into retrograde. This will make communication particularly difficult for you at the end of the month.

So be creative in your jokes, stories, and other ways you flirt with charming strangers. You may just see something that sticks.
If you’re in a relationship, this burst of creative energy can be used to spice things up and keep it feeling new.

Okay, but then Mercury goes into retrograde and messes everything up for you. Gemini, you’ll make progress in some areas this month, but it’ll be hard earned. Then the end of the month will feel like an uphill battle. You may feel like your energies are being pulled in different directions and/or held back, but take time to center yourself and you’ll still be able to achieve greatness in March.
17 Gemini Love ‘Scope: The Full Moons May Give Your Scattered Heart Some Clarity
Gemini, the scatterbrained feeling isn’t limited to your work, health, and projects. You will also totally be feeling scatterbrained when it comes to relationships, though you always kind of feel scatterbrained when it comes to relationships. You’re the type to be in love with three different people at the same time. Like, you’d never be able to hand out roses on The Bachelorette because you'd love way too many of the contestants.
That said, look to be beginning and end of the month for clarity. March is bookended with full moons on the 1st and the 31st. Full moons are a time of revelation and awareness. Sure, you may gather some realizations you may not exactly love, but it’s better to find out than to be left in the dark.
With Mercury in retrograde at the end of the month, huge relationship decisions are better left until April. If the full moon on the 31st does, in fact, give you some clarity, wait to act on said clarity until Mercury is done ruining everyone’s lives.

The new moon on the 17th falls under Pisces, another water sign. This will heighten your emotional state, making your more sensitive, empathetic, and intuitive. It’s a good time for self-care and meditating. Try to use this push in emotions to connect to yourself, rather than letting your emotions take control, which can lead to a breakdown. Hey, it happens.
After entering Aries season on the 21st, you’ll feel a push in your career sector. But slow down. While you may have heightened career ambitions, they will be difficult due to Mercury in retrograde.

When the middle of the month hits, you’ll feel willing to get out of your comfort zone and be more aggressive than usual. So, flirt your butt off at the beginning of the month, then finally make your move in the middle of the month.

Trying to make something work while Mercury is in retrograde in your relationship zone can be a total headache and led to absolutely nothing. It can be a true let down, especially if you feel like you wasted energy. You’re better off focusing on work, goals, health, family, and friends, rather than finding a cutie for the spring.

These are difficult questions to ask, but the beginning of March is definitely the time to ask such questions.
Though, these big questions may get swept away by the new moon on the 17th, which occurs in your pleasure zone. Scorpio, you’re the most passionate sign of the zodiac.

Mercury in retrograde on the 22nd can be extra painful for you. As an air sign, you’re very friendly, curious, and intellectual. You love getting into love and interesting conversations with friends. Unfortunately, you may find yourself in more arguments than debates. If Mercury in retrograde has you down and feeling intellectually uninspired, focus on your body.
Instead of trying to force March to be able knowledge and intelligence, follow it. It’s a month of bodily intuition, so go with that.
