Time to get yourself anchored, Sagittarius. March begins with a heavy emphasis on security and stability—not the usual #goals your adventurous zodiac sign seeks. But grounding is a major theme of 2020 for you, Sag, and this month’s stars want to help you firm up your foundation. For once, you’ll be eager to participate in that planetary plan!
For starters, the Sun is in Pisces and your fourth house of home, family and emotional anchors until March 19, your annual period to nest, rest and even hibernate as you slip off the grid (which won’t be THAT easy thanks to some other cosmic forces). With Mercury, the planet of communication and technology, retrograde from February 16 to March 9, save your social calendar for pressing meetings and hangouts that deliver a high return on investment.
The one day to really go big with your career arrives on March 9. Not only does Mercury correct course and turn direct (forward), but the year’s only Virgo full moon lands in your tenth house of ambition and professional goals. A leadership post or public role, possibly one you’ve been working toward since the August 30, 2019, Virgo NEW moon, could manifest into something official now. Have you been pondering a career change? This full moon could finally kick off that professional pivot.
The tenth house rules men, fathers and authority figures. At the Virgo full moon, you may need to clear the air with a guy (or male-identified person) in your life—or possibly with a colleague. During Mercury retrograde, you may not have seen eye to eye. But don’t just pull a “we need to talk” and speak off the cuff, Sag. Plan your talking points and stick to them—being mindful to keep it out of the overly personal realm. What’s your intention for this conversation? Get clear on that before you utter or type a single word.
On the financial front, March features a rare cosmic quartet of planets in Capricorn and your second house of work and money. Throughout the month, this zone will be visited by motivator Mars, bountiful Jupiter, structured Saturn AND potent Pluto. Ready to break through to new levels of earning and abundance? Lean in, Sagittarius: These planets don’t connect like this for (literally) centuries! If you’re hoping to create some grounding new habits or to make a big change to your lifestyle, that’s totally within your reach now.
A huge money moment could arrive on March 20, when Mars and Jupiter unite at an exact point in Capricorn, catalyzing your cash flow. While you may be tempted to gamble everything and take a big gamble (easy does it, Sag!), a calculated risk could reap giant rewards. Opportunity could come from afar, perhaps attached to something that involves broadcasting, publishing or motivational speaking. All of these areas fall within your inspirational wheelhouse, Archer, so explore the opportunities!
A tense or controlling situation could flare up on March 23, when Mars and Pluto unite. These are two of the most competitive and jealous planets—prone to rash moves and driving up obsession. With this duo making an exact conjunction in Capricorn, stress around money or with a coworker could lead to a showdown if you’re not careful. Instead of getting emotionally bent out of shape, stay sharp and strategic. Resist the urge to take the bait, even though you’ll be easily triggered. The more you stay calm and rooted in your power, the sooner you’ll win this chess match. Your best bet is to observe…then you’ll know when to make your move!
Luckily, by this time, we’ll be in Aries season, with the Sun having shifted into your passionate and playful fifth house for a month on March 19. The spring equinox could deliver some spirited good times—and a heavy dose of flirtatious, magnetic appeal. Shake off those shut-in vibes and let your joyful side back out to roam free. Ah, there’s the Sagittarius we all know and love!
At the March 24 Aries new moon, your romantic and creative endeavors get a burst of fresh-start energy. Over the next six months, an attraction could evolve into a real-deal romance. Don’t write that person off as just a “spring fling.” And at the same time, don’t try to force a future with someone who’s clearly just in it for fun. Enjoy the spontaneous urge and follow that frisky feeling wherever it takes you. Coupled Sags are equally encouraged to keep that spirit alive in your love life.
The headline news arrives on March 21, when Saturn makes its first leg of a three- year journey through Aquarius and your third house of communication and community. This will be a gentler cycle than the last couple Saturn phases, as this planet will be in an easy sextile (60-degree angle) to your Sun on the zodiac wheel.
Saturn will visit Aquarius from March 21 to July 1, then it will take a five-month dip back into Capricorn before settling into the Water Bearer’s realm for an extended trip from December 17, 2020, until March 7, 2023. During this time, you could rise into a role of prominence with writing, teaching or the media. You may get formally involved in local politics or a community leadership post. The way you express yourself—from speaking to writing to listening—will also undergo an important maturation phase. The company you keep will reflect on you now more than ever. A relationship with a sibling, neighbor or close friend may feel a few growing pains. Saturn was last in Aquarius from 1991 to 1994, so if you can remember back that far, you might notice recurring themes.
To put this into context, it’s best to take a long view of Saturn—three decades long, to be exact. The ringed planet takes about 29.5 years to make an entire trek through the zodiac wheel, which marks a complete life cycle. From 2014 to 17, Saturn was in Sagittarius, launching a new 30-year chapter of your life. When Saturn visits your sign every three decades, it lays a brand-new foundation.
Just like how heavy construction equipment breaks ground for a new building, there was hard work and grit involved. Then, in December 2017, the ringed planet moved into Capricorn and your second house of work, money and daily routines. You’ve been busy fashioning Sagittarius 2.0 (discovered while Saturn was in your sign) into concrete form—reflected in your work, friendships, living situation and environment.
With restrictive Saturn in Capricorn delivering tough but crucial lessons for the past two years, you may have had to tighten your belt or put in long hours at the job. It’s possible that a work situation forced you to grow up fast. What have you learned, Sag? If you got smarter about budgeting, saving and planning, you’ll be rewarded for your efforts as Saturn departs from Capricorn this month.
With Saturn in Aquarius, you might even teach people what you’ve learned along the way! During this first three-month cycle, start beta-testing a few ideas. Anything from a live event to developing an app could help get your message to the right people. As a zodiac sign that loves to give advice (and probably has a few books to write about it), you’ll embrace this new phase.
But don’t start rolling the presses or hitting “record” on a live podcast too quickly. Wise Saturn wants you to take the time to craft a thoughtful and cohesive narrative first. Think: marathon, not sprint! That will be challenging as the month ends, though. With speedy Mars zooming through Aquarius from March 30 to May 12, you’ll be tempted to start spreading the news. But Saturn will tap the brakes—forcefully, if need be—especially when it makes an exact meetup with Mars on March 31. This would be an ideal time to get media coaching, build a set for your videos or join a formal writer’s workshop, for example. Any professional association related to your industry will be a powerful resource for new connections that can help your ideas go far. For the next couple years—and couple months—it really IS about who you know!
