We can thank our lucky stars this month as the Sun starts a brand new cycle during the spring equinox. The astrological new year is very much like our literal new year, and this one is backed by some positively powerful alignments. Conjunctions are the most prominent aspect of your March 2022 horoscopes, with a total of eight different pairings. When two (or more) planets combine energies in the same sign, there is formidable potential in our lives.
Venus and Mars got together last month, and the connection between the cosmic lovers is still going strong. These two will get involved with transformative Pluto and lead us to a radical metamorphosis, preparing us for the new chapter that comes with Aries season—a.k.a the astrological new year.
It is also important to note that all planets are moving direct and out of their respective retrograde shadows. However, this is not a time to coast. Consider this a significant push towards turning your dreams into reality.
