Happy (almost) solar return, Aries darling! Your bday season corresponds with the beginning of the Spring Equinox, triggering a new zodiac cycle. And this energetic shift will be well-deserved: The past few weeks may have felt uncomfortable—Pisces’ ethereal Neptunian vibes plus clumsy Mercury Retrograde is really not your thing. But don’t worry, Ram bb: Your luck is about to change.
On March 9th, a Full Moon in Virgo encourages you to find a balance between physical and psychological wellness. This lunation captures the flavor of the month: Despite the chaos, we strive to maintain steady growth in both the tangible and immaterial realms. What’s more, Mercury Retrograde ends on this very day (Finally!). With your routines getting a much-needed revamp, don’t be surprised if you suddenly find yourself ready to express your thoughts and ideas with clarity and focus.
The Sun glides into Aries on March 19th, kicking off a brand-new zodiac cycle and—most importantly—your birthday month. HBD, Aries babe! With solar energy on your side, you’ll enjoy a restored sense of confidence and enthusiasm. On March 24th, the Moon will meet the Sun in your sign, fueling a dynamic je ne sais quoi only rivaled by fellow Rams Lady Gaga and Mariah Carey. You were born to shine, and this month, it’s time to live up to the hype!
But within this fierce commotion, Saturn—the planet of rules and responsibilities—is preparing to do something quite extraordinary. On March 21st, the taskmaster of the solar system enters Aquarius for the first time since 1991. Although (due to retrograde motion) Saturn will move back into Capricorn for a few more months this year, Aries babies born between 1991 and 1994 are preparing to begin their infamous Saturn Return.
What is a Saturn Return? So glad you asked! Basically, this is the time when you are nudged (pretty aggressively, tbh) into adulthood. During this cosmic coming-of-age, you come face-to-face with your responsibilities and learn how to define yourself independently from your parents, teachers, bosses, and societal obligations.
But even if you’re not hunkering down for your Saturn Return, this celestial motion will have a tremendous impact on your chart: Through 2023, Saturn in Aquarius will transform the way you experience community. You may encounter radical changes within your friend group, uncover your deep-seated humanitarian roots, or even spearhead new technological innovations (and no, Aries, I’m not talking about becoming TikTok famous). By the end of next month, you’ll begin to feel the effects of this major planetary movement that’ll change your life forever. Get ready for some major motion!
