december horoscopes

March will bring a gust of fresh cosmic energy, The Sun enters Aries and marks the start of the Astrological New Year on the Spring Equinox. March’s vibe is off the charts for several reasons. The first is all the planets are moving direct and functioning at their highest potential. Mercury will remain in its post-retrograde shadow until March 12 but is regaining strength every day. Everyone will feel the urge to push forward. The second reason is the majority of the aspects are positive and harmonious, this month is smooth sailing. The third is the Venus Star Point, which begins on March 22 and is exact (at its peak) on March 26.

Every 9.5 months Venus aligns with the Sun, and this time she’ll switch from Morning Star (visible in the sky at dawn) to Evening Star (visible in the sky at dusk.) She alternates every time she conjuncts the Sun, and this is a smaller part of a larger eight-year cycle. 2021’s Venus Star Point is in Aries, marking a major turning point in regards to the self. This star point tends to bring about major life events. Whatever happens, has a blessing attached, even if you can’t see it right away. This one happens to fall just after the Astrological New Year and if there ever was a fresh start with lots of good energy around it, this is it.

March 2021 Horoscopes Important Dates

Mars Transits Gemini, March 3: This will put everyone in the mood to socialize. Mars is the action planet and Gemini loves stimulation of any kind. Add these two together, plus a year in lockdown, and they equal a need for contact and experiences.

New Moon in Pisces, March 13: Emotional reset time. Let go of the past and look towards the future.

The Astrological New Year, The Sun Transits Aries, March 20: A chance to start over. Just as the spring promises growth, so does the Sun when it moves into Aries and the collective First House of Self. This is a good time to focus on yourself and redefine your goals, values and the way you show up in the world. We are often shaped by our outer experience and this is a checkpoint with our inner self.

The Venus Star Point, March 22 – March 29:

Venus conjuncts the Sun and transforms from Morning Star to Evening Star. The 9.5 months between each star point is the fundamental building block of Venus’s synodic cycle, which involves her five retrogrades over an eight-year period. Her movements create a rose and pentagram pattern in the sky.

The last Venus Star Point in June 2020 closed a cycle that started with her star point in June 2012 and thus begun a new cycle that will end in June 2028. All these star points occur while Venus is retrograde in Gemini, and transitioning to Morning Star. So the 2021 Venus Star Point in Aries is the second chapter of a grander story and the bigger picture. She will now be an evening star and is thought to embody a soft and nurturing energy.

This transit can bring about defining moments in our lives. At this time we may be called to focus on ourselves and embody the Aries energy. This is a time to unapologetically be yourself, and go after what you want with the tenacity and unwavering belief of your inner child. Remember when you believed that anything was possible? Embrace that feeling and be sure to show yourself some extra love during this week.

The Full Moon in Libra, March 28: With all the focus on self this month, take a moment to appreciate others. Libra is a partnership-oriented sign, so be sure to express gratitude to anyone you consider a partner at this time.
