Tatler's Astrology Series: Your Horoscope For March 2021
With both the New Year and the Lunar New Year firmly in the rearview mirror, you might have thought the celebrations were surely over. But the Spring Equinox on March 20––the first day of spring in the northern hemisphere––is actually the start of the astrological new year.
As the Sun transits from the zodiac sign of Pisces into Aries, its powerful solar energies stoke our inner fires, melting away inhibitions and animating our basic instincts. Pisces represents the wisdom of experience and the closing of a cycle, while Aries symbolises the start of a new one. So Happy New Year once again!
Read on for what’s in store for your sign in March 2021.
The month will begin and end with a greater awareness of your emotional needs. Are the people or activities you devote yourself to fulfilling you in the most important ways? If not, it may be time to take up new interests. Tensions may arise between your work and the relationships in your life, forcing you to examine your priorities.
Toward the end of the month, you will be greatly bolstered by Venus, the planet of love and money, entering your sign. You may feel more loving and socially at ease. For those born at the end of March, this is a great year to throw a birthday party––socially distanced, of course.
Communications are enhanced as mental activity ramps up. Any areas of conflict or confusion will be resolved by the end of the month as the energy shifts and you find it easier to express yourself. Meetings will become more productive and your words will come across as clear and convincing.
This is a great month for all kinds of intellectual or creative work involving others. Over-giving or over-indulgence may cause feelings of guilt, so try to be prudent with your love and money. You are also a bit more accident-prone at this time; beware of sudden rushes of anger or acting in haste.
Your confidence and vitality are riding high, as fiery Mars moves into your sign. Energy levels will be elevated so be sure to get plenty of exercise or otherwise channel your drive toward productive goals. If you find yourself stuck indoors with no projects to tackle, you will be at the mercy of irritability and restlessness.
Lucky breaks may be plentiful, encouraging you to take some benign risks. Your self-expression flows freely in the first half of March. As the month progresses, try not to take other people’s well-intentioned advice as a personal criticism against you.
Love and money are supported by the Universe at this time. You may feel a stronger sense of connection with your fellow humans and living creatures. You can appreciate at a deeper level the gifts in your life. It may be time to check in with family or loved ones you haven’t spoken to in a while, since your self-esteem and sense of social ease are especially enhanced. Beware of miscommunication or misinterpreting messages in the first part of the month.
Those born in late June are in the same boat as Taurus––watch out for situations where losing your cool could result in injury or wasted effort.
This is a good time to unleash your competitive streak and score some wins. Your instinctual desires and impulses are supported by the planets right now so it will be worth your while to put in a little extra effort.
Others may present an opposing view or challenge to your goals; find a way to be respectful of their perspective while still sticking to your guns. Maintain some boundaries and self-discipline when it comes to your time, love, and money. If you give or indulge too much at this time, regret will surely come later. Striking a balance between work and fun, giving and taking in equal measure, is a key theme.
Tensions are likely to erupt the coming days, as other people’s words or behaviours turn out to be triggering. Someone’s bizarre logic or mental hang-ups could challenge your patience. Another person’s mere presence could remind you of your own flaws and insecurities. When the feelings arise, remember that the Universe is training you to be a jedi master of your own emotions.
Meanwhile, tensions of the sexual variety can also manifest in March. Don’t be surprised if sparks start flying with someone incredibly attractive.

You may find yourself compromising on personal desires and going along with the tastes of another. Pay attention to your instincts, and if someone makes you feel uncomfortable, it may be wise to limit your exposure to them.
Make some progress on your to-do list in the first half of the month, when it will be easier to focus. Your forward-drive is strongly supported at the moment––the same tasks will require less effort to complete. This month’s Full Moon is in your sign on March 28. It brings a deeper understanding of how your unique light shines, and of being in sync with emotional energies around you.

Social and romantic situations are bathed in a warm, rose-colored light at the moment, enhancing your feelings of love and connectedness. Now is the time to count your blessings, even if other things don’t seem to be going your way.
At some juncture you will be called to resist others’ provocations––perhaps a cold, insensitive comment or someone’s majorly pushy attitude. Try to remember they are dealing with their own issues and likely not out to hurt you. Intimate pillow talk could be more satisfying than sex as the bedroom may give rise to an awkward moment. As the month winds down, communication flows a little freer.
Intellectual projects are strongly supported as the mind lands on creative solutions this month. You could find yourself engaged in highfalutin discussions about where the world is headed. It may appear as though not everyone is on board with your goals, but those who disagree turn out to be worthy opponents who can actually help your cause.
Romantic attention from another can be very satisfying for the ego right now, if only on a superficial level. They are enjoying the attention from you, too. Your sense of self-esteem and worthiness are heightened during what could be a more social period.
Chance encounters may lead you into some fortuitous situations this month. Sometimes the Universe knows best how to move you forward. At the same time, you may come across people whose actions or assertions trouble you. Try not to judge and to give them the benefit of the doubt; otherwise, you may get into confrontations that are really not worth your time.
Like Scorpio, your words may not flow as easily until the second half of the month. When the energy shifts, your day-to-day interactions can be infused with a deeper sense of connection and everyday wonder.
Work is getting a big boost from the planets at the moment. Your ideas are easily understood and accepted, and hitting any targets or goals can become more effortless. Maximise this period by setting a higher bar or standard for yourself.
A new or alternative leisure activity may come on the radar––go with it. What may seem odd or out of character for you could turn out to be a lot of fun. The same goes for any off-the-wall ideas and communications that come your way––it’s a safe time to explore or branch out.
Beauty and love are highlighted as your creative talents come to the fore. This is an excellent time for romance or taking in some art or music. Carve out some time to create something new––a song, a dessert, a business idea––while your connection to higher realms of inspiration is activated.
At work, your views come across clearly and are easily accepted by others. Someone just trying to keep up with you can seem overly competitive. A New Moon in your sign on March 13 brings more energetic resonance with the world and especially with the people around you.
