You’ll be feeling a deep sense of nostalgia and longing for the comforts of home, and reflecting on your roots and familial ties. Use this transit as an opportunity to strengthen your bonds with your family and create a cozy, nurturing environment that makes you feel safer and more secure. On Saturday night, the Moon moves into the exchange loving sign of Gemini, and your communication will flow more freely.

KnowAries March ’23 Scope
Key Themes: Spiritual perspectives, shedding and growing, emotional release, celebration
Aries, March will be huge. Not only do we enter your sign’s season, and experience an equinox – two major planets are wrapping up major cycles. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves!
The month kicks off with Mercury entering Pisces on March 2nd, where it will remain for roughly two weeks. When the planet of communication enters the sign of spiritual transcendence, things can get a little trippy. Not only will you feel more connected to unconditional love, and the divine magic in all things – you’ll probably notice the lines between internal and external worlds blurring. Manifestation can arise much faster from your spoken words, with this kind of transit… so be mindful of the kinds of conversations (internally too) that you’re having.
Because this all illuminates your sector of spiritual connection, you may notice your thoughts changing flavor. It’ll be easier to access objectivity, and a kind of “bigger picture” perspective, which will feel like mental clarity.
Five days later (March 7th), we have our month’s Full Moon in Virgo. Aries, for you this activates your sector of refinement and wellness. Perfect timing, as you’re not far from your solar return. You can think of this as spring cleaning energy. It’ll be a powerful time to consciously clear out any stagnant energy from your life. Is there anything (or anyone) that you feel ready to release? Think: unhealthy mental loops, toxic relationships, procrastination patterns and so on. You’re giving yourself a self-loving detox.
On the same day, one of 2023’s most notable astrological events unfolds, with Saturn shifting out of Aquarius. Aries, as this planet moves into Pisces, you may notice things taking more of a distinctly spiritual flavor – and like all things Saturn, this will have both light and shadow sides to it. Life, and the world are going to feel a little different. The good news is, now that you’ve read your monthly astro guide, you’ll be able to put your finger on why, and to simply witness the unfolding.
Aries, on March 12th, the month presents you another auspicious window: Jupiter conjoining the asteroid Chiron, in your sign. This is going to grant you an incredibly expansive portal of healing. Chiron (also known as the wounded healer) points us towards the areas of our deepest wounding.
This illuminative chapter will give you a chance to (if you so choose) see your fears and sore spots much more clearly. From awareness, healing transmutation and wisdom can arise. It’ll be a good time for an emotional release. Cry if you need to – sometimes it’s the best medicine for letting go of grief.
The total opposite cosmic vibes arrive a week later, when Mercury enters your sign (March 19th), followed by the Sun the very next day (March 20th). Aaaaand… it’s Aries season baby! This, plus the Spring or Fall Equinox, depending on your hemisphere, as well as the start of a new astrological year. Huge.
Just a day later (March 21st) we have our first New Moon of the Astrological year – one of the most powerful portals for planting new seeds of intention. And guess what? It’s in your sign. Aries, this night (and the days surrounding) will feel like the burst of momentum you’ve been waiting for. The sky’s the limit, the question simply is: what do you want to create in your life?
Ruling Planet: Mars, the Planet of Action
Where You’ll Find Them: Owning a start-up, winning an athletic competition, and/or skydiving
What They Avoid: Diving into the emotional depths or having to explain themselves
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, and they make their mark by letting action and passion take the lead in all that they do. Wherever Aries goes, they do with a sense of purpose and ambition. They are the zodiac’s natural leaders and warriors — always seeking to be #1 and excel. As a Fire Sign, Aries learns through direct experience better than anything else. They have little patience for people or situations that are overly emotional or draining. They’d rather get lost in the fire than have to be overwhelmed by feelings. But eventually, Aries has to face their own emotions, and it’s better done sooner rather than later.
Aries thrives in a career that lets them call the shots and be in positions of leadership. For this reason, many Aries make amazing entrepreneurs. Because Aries is all about action, they also succeed in physical activities such as team sports. Being ruled by Mars, the Planet of Action, Aries is full of energy, and if they don’t find a great outlet for it they can become restless, angry or impulsive. Fortunately, when Aries does get angry (they have a short temper), they aren’t known for holding a grudge like some of the other zodiac signs. They live much more in the now moment than most signs, so they know that holding on to emotions only weighs them down. Still, it’s best not to mess with Aries — they’re fierce competitors and they can intimidate you into submission if they so chose.
As friends, Aries will be the leader of the pack, always finding a new adventure or thrill to experience. Aries can be competitive in friendship though, and this can sometimes cause tension in their relationships. For the most part, it’s all in good fun, and as long as Aries avoids being overly self-centered, they’ll attract fulfilling and exciting friendships. Aries does bore easily, and they seek people who can keep up with their passionate and fiery nature.
As lovers, Aries will at first avoid admitting to their deeper emotions. They crush hard and fall in love easily, but it’s not always for the long-haul. Aries has high standards and is often desired, so it takes them some time to commit. But when an Aries falls in love, they transform into an utter romantic, wooing their lover and treating them differently than everyone else. Just watch out for that infamous Aries temper — it can come out of nowhere and be completely destructive. Aries tends to forgive and forget more easily than the other signs though, and this helps them make amends in love — unless you’ve crossed them one too many times. Then the Aries will move on, without looking back, leaving you in the dust.
