Your Monthly Horoscope for March 2024

Here's what's in store for you this month.

As we enter a new month, the slate is wiped clean and there are endless possibilities for growth. See what’s in store for your relationships, career, and emotions in the month ahead, here’s your March horoscope for 2024

Pisces, Feb 20 – Mar 20

The celestial symphony of Saturn, Neptune, the sun and this year’s new moon all in Pisces on March 10 to celebrate the beginning of your astrological year offers a personal portal for downloading specific life guidance. Make quiet time and space around this date to tune in and receive the rich gifts of your inner wisdom. From mid-month onwards, as magical creator Venus flows into your compassionate sign, followed by energetic Mars in the last week of March, your words and work can encourage others to feel valued, supported and inspired.

Aries, Mar 21 – Apr 21

If the steamy astrology of early March has you too fired up to deal with emotionally charged challenges diplomatically, then step away from situations with inflammatory potential until you can approach them with a cooler head. Which is currently available through Mars and planet healer Chiron’s clarifying alignment in your sign, providing eye-opening insights on certain ingrained personal patterns. By the autumn equinox on March 21, as the sun and Mercury in Aries deliver more dazzling epiphanies, you’ll be able to cruise into your birthday season with a calm, controlled burn.

Taurus, Apr 22 – May 21

Is it feeling like time to readdress an unresolved issue? Instead of getting stuck on who’s right and what’s wrong, innovative Uranus in Taurus is encouraging you to open the discussion to a variety of perspectives and view things from different angles. Around mid-month, when artistic Venus in full creative flow stimulates your imaginative hormones, consider beautifying your daily routines into soul-nourishing rituals. For instance, rather than going on autopilot straight to a device, you might set your day’s agenda differently by going outside and connecting first with the natural world.

Gemini, May 22 – Jun 22

During your power planet Mercury’s introversion in the first week of March, it’s worth taking a break from digital persistence and revisiting the organic technology of your own inner vision. This is a fabulous transit for actualising an artistic or philanthropic project and introducing it to the world. When the astral messenger gets into straightforward stride around March 10, focus on keeping communications simple and uncomplicated. Reduce confusing multiple options, use bullet points, and try to finalise important conversations before Mercury backs into retrograde on April Fools’ Day.

Cancer, Jun 23 – Jul 23

The sensitive, psychic new moon on March 10 is this year’s most powerful portal for accessing spiritual guidance, paying attention to dream messages, indulging favourite creative outlets, discussing ways of encouraging others and giving back to your community or the wider world. When Libra’s full-moon eclipse on March 25, aligned with potent Pluto, spotlights connection and cooperation, some partnerships past their prime could be eclipsed from your life. This is the time to stay open to meeting new people of experience and influence, with the possibility of joining forces.

Leo, Jul 24 – Aug 23

With volatile Venus and unpredictable Uranus both in fixed signs like your own, short fuses and stubborn mindsets could cause tempers to flare and opinions to clash during the first half of March. Are you ready to roar? It may be better to purr so that peace, love and harmony can be more easily achieved around the late March full-moon eclipse in the sign of partnerships and pairing up. Since eclipses are known to accompany turning points and plot twists, an opportunity to connect or uncouple might present itself where you least expect it.

Virgo, Aug 24 – Sep 23

Communication in early March could be confusing when your mentor planet, Mercury, under the dissolving influence of Neptune, blurs the lines between fact and fiction. If you’re finding it hard to focus, don’t force things: Let intuition guide you. Are you being a bit hard on others, or yourself? This month calls for a heartfelt approach, and don’t be surprised if there are a few teary moments. Around March 11, when cerebral Mercury heads into its clearest and most forthright phase, the mist lifts, vision clears and the year’s gears kick into forward drive.

Libra, Sep 24 – Oct 23

Business dealings can be dodgy this month, and Venus is in her most trusting transit, so think no-nonsense financial discussions and clear, basic agreements. As much as you love keeping everything in the feelgood zone, Saturn is insisting on ‘eyes wide open’ background checks before you sign any contracts or invite someone into your private world. That done, the Libra full moon on March 25 is your celestial date to dress up and socialise, to celebrate all the parts of your life that are currently in beautiful balance – or artistic disarray.

Scorpio, Oct 24 – Nov 22

Stubbornness and determination are two faces of the same energy: Stubbornness resisting what you don’t want; and determination to pursue what you do. This month’s astral energetics advise focusing on turning ‘won’t’ power into willpower which, with the abundant cascade of fluid energy in a fellow water sign, won’t be too hard an ask. When communicator Mercury grabs the microphone in mid-March with a confident, assertive attitude, the cosmos is supporting you to stand up for your convictions, saying what you mean and meaning what you say, in the traditional Scorpio way.

Sagittarius Nov 23 – Dec 21

This month’s elemental energies could have Sagittarians feeling restless, in which case the astrological recommendation is to consider the difference between being spontaneous and recklessly impulsive: Something you may regret. After last month’s head trips, touchy-feely March is about process rather than goals, about embodying the concept that all the way to heaven is heaven. About slowing down, tuning in, simplifying your life, finding love. About listening … because when the autumn equinox on March 21 ushers in the season of your fellow fire signs there’ll be no holding you back.

Capricorn, Dec 22 – Jan 20

With the imaginative vibes of March activating Capricorn’s zodiac zone of communication and community activities, not to mention your creative capabilities, expect to be expressing yourself with more flair and eloquent artistry than usual. Your ruler Saturn is also in this sector, under instructions from sensitive Neptune to relax and stay open to receiving as much help and support as you give others. When late March ushers in the new astrological year, a powerful lunar eclipse on March 25 in your career sector could bring unexpected, though not unwelcome, changes.

Aquarius, Jan 21 – Feb 19

If vague, indecisive or needy people have you wanting more personal space this month, then take it, because you already know from experience that it’s more energy-efficient to restrain rash reactions than deal with damage control. Venus and Mars travelling in tandem through your sign till mid-March are there to assist you in adding more soul to your goals and extra empathy to your daily interactions. When the autumn equinox on March 21 presses the start button on the astrological new year, you’ll welcome the increasingly Aquarius-friendly energetic pace.
