The spoken version and the …written version:
March may shape up to be something of a wild month.
Mercury is still retrograde until March 9, the same day that there’s a full moon in Virgo.
On March 5, Venus enters Taurus and on March 8, the same day that daylight savings time begins, it conjuncts Uranus.
Then on March 24, there’s a new moon in Aries.
However, the most important date this month is March 21, when Saturn enters Aquarius. This transition, the first for Saturn in more than two years, will have have positive effects for all you air signs – Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius and for fire signs Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. But we all feel this shift in one way or another, and we’ll get into the details in a minute. In July, Saturn retrograde slips back into Capricorn until December 18, then into Aquarius it goes for the next 2.5 years.
For millennials born between 1990 and 1992, this Saturn shift marks your first Saturn return, a major turning point in your lives.
If you live to be 90, you have three of these returns in your life. The first, around the age of 29, usually involves pivotal events – you start a career path, get married or divorced, starts a family, make a major move.
The second Saturn return, between the ages of 58-60 is usually the harvest. You might retire or start a new career altogether, your kids leave home and begin their own adult lives, you inherit money, receive professional recognition.
The third one is when you take stock of your life. You’re facing your own mortality. Your beliefs about life after death may change, your dream life may become more vivid, you’re preparing yourself for whatever comes next.
So now, for the specifics.
