Your March 2022 Horoscope for Health, Love, and Success
Following months of the cold, blustery slog that is winter, March always offers the promise of more warmth and light. That's in great part thanks to the fact that the third month of the year hosts the spring equinox and the start of a new astrological cycle.
Up until March 20, the vitality-bringing sun moves through imaginative, empathic Pisces, making it easier to face the world with rose-colored glasses, to express your feelings through creative outlets, and to swim in the deep end of emotion. And from March 20 to April 19, Aries season will present us with a more dynamic, competitive, impulsive vibe, as the cardinal fire sign is ruled by Mars, the planet of action.
Pisces and Aries seasons — the first, fertile ground for creative and heart-centric pursuits, while the second motivates you to make bold moves — deliver a moment in which you'll be as fired up to dream as you are to move the ball forward on your hopes and wishes.

The water-to-fire energy creates, well, steam, clouding rational thought while simultaneously cranking up the intensity of your passion and drive. This month, mindfulness and escapism take center stage and then are quickly replaced by an impulsive, playful, energetic tone. It'll feel almost as though you've awoken from a wintry slumber and are immediately caffeinated and ready to go.
A few quick highlights of March 2022's astrology:
The month opens with an opportunity to set powerful, big picture intentions, thanks to a new moon in Pisces cozying up to lucky Jupiter.
But while the sun, Jupiter, and Neptune, the planet of dreams, are all hanging out in the mutable water sign, several other planets bring us progressive, contrarian, eccentric Aquarius vibes this month. On March 6, romantic Venus and go-getter Mars move into the sign of the Water Bearer, where they'll remain until April 5 and 14 respectively. On March 9, Mercury joins the Pisces crew, giving the way we communicate and think a more empathic, creative — albeit less logical — tone.
Speaking of logic, around March 18, the full moon in Virgo pits the desire to focus on the rational details against Pisces season's penchant for the ethereal. Nonetheless, this could be a healing culmination point. (Related: A Beginner's Guide to the Chinese Zodiac)
And from March 27 to April 10, messenger Mercury's journey through dynamic Aries can make you more direct, impatient, but bold and action-oriented in how you express yourself.

Every Sign's Monthly Horoscope for March 2022
Aries (March 21–April 19)
Your monthly highlights: Wellness 🍏 and Career 💼
Although you tend to love to be on the go and take action as much as possible, around March 2, the new moon in your twelfth house of spirituality presents an opportunity to rest, recharge, and let your mind wander. You could be craving solo time more than usual and giving into that urge can actually set you up for making bigger, bolder moves later in the month. For instance, once the confident sun moves through your sign from March 20 to April 19, you'll feel more confident and fired up to tackle a long-term professional goal. And once messenger Mercury is there as well from March 27 to April 10, it'll become even easier to articulate your vision.

You'll be fired up to recruit friends and colleagues to help you reach your big picture aims, and stepping into the spotlight to make an impressive presentation or share a passionate pitch can feel easier than usual. But while the confident sun moves through your twelfth house of spirituality from March 20 to April 19, you'll want to ease into spring with your signature slow, steady approach.

And from March 20 to April 19, the vitality-bringing sun in your tenth house of career brings the spotlight to your professional goals. Voicing your needs and desire to lead the charge to a higher-up or colleagues — especially once messenger Mercury is there as well from March 27 to April 10 — could be particularly empowering.
