The month of March marks a passage from an air zodiac sign to a fire zodiac sign: from Pisces to Aries. The people born during this month are either of these two signs. To get to know more about the March zodiac sign, go ahead and give the rest of this article a read. We will tell you exactly what the zodiac signs are, and what it means to be born during this month.
What is the March Zodiac Sign?
The first zodiac sign of March is Pisces, and the second is Aries.
This zodiac sign has a simple symbol to decipher; it is represented by a pair of fish swimming in harmony. This duo represents the dynamic created by duality.
There are a few myths related to this zodiac sign, specifically Greek ones. The most famous one is the myth with Aphrodite and Eros: they were trying to escape from the monster called Typhon.
They went together in a river, and at the contact of the river; they transformed into two fishes. The interesting thing about these two figures is that they both represent different aspects of the same concept: love. As all myths go there are some different versions depending on the source; the alternative ending is that the two gods don’t get transformed into fishes but instead are carried away and saved by them.
Pisces Astrological attributes:
Pisces are renowned for their being daydreamers. This zodiac sign is under the main influence of the planets Jupiter and Neptune. Neptune is the ultimate planet for mysticism and esotericism. This planet blurs the limits of fantasy and reality, and is highly focused on the spiritual dimension of things, and not the material ones. The main symbols attached to this planet are intuition and sensibility.
Pisces are people that are open to the outward, even though they develop a rich interior imaginary world. Some signs also have this spiritual aspect, but are more drawn to themselves, which isn’t the case with this sign at all. Pisces are willing to help others, and are highly empathetic also. It isn’t a surprise, when you know that this sign is a water sign. Water signs are generally very sensitive individuals but sometimes this sensitivity can be too overwhelming.
Fortunately for the Pisces, there is also the influence of Jupiter because this planet adds a more positive tone. Jupiter is known to be the planet of opulence, fortune and luck.
The influence of these two planets altogether explains a lot of the personality of the Pisces. The Pisces zodiac sign represents very well the fusion of the influences of these two planets. The belief in an over-compassing force which dominates this March zodiac sign.
The Pisces constellation is shaped in a V. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to spot it very easily, as it is only composed of faint stars. Here are a few tips to help you out though: this constellation will be easier to see before midnight, If you are located in the Northern Hemisphere (from August until February). On the contrary, if you live in the Southern Hemisphere of earth, Spring will be your best shot to see it.
The astral constellation is also represented by two fishes. They are swimming but are connected to a silver ribbon; represented by a trail of stars. This ribbon also has a particular symbolism of connection through difference.
Aries is a ram; a male goat. Even though it is a simple creature, it is still associated with the powerful myth of the great golden ram.
Aries was a special kind of golden ram according to Greek mythology. It solved a conflict in the city of Boetia, that included Phrixus and his mother Nepheli, as well as many other characters. Nephele is the goddess of the clouds. This golden ram was sent as a present to bring peace between the two parties. It was then sent to Zeus by Phrixus. This same ram was then found more famously found by Jason and the Argonauts.
Aries Astrological attributes:
This zodiac sign is ruled by the planet Mars. This planet catalyzes the principle of action, and fighting. The Aries incarnates this aspect perfectly. As the first sign of the zodiac loop, it symbolizes initiative and action; the beginning of everything. This sign could be characterized by impulsiveness, ambition, singularity, boldness. Making Aries a natural choice for a fire sign. When linked with the traditional symbolism of tarot cards, you can notice many similarities with the first card called the Magician.
Aries are known to be the most audacious and explosive zodiac sign. Their motto is do first, then think later. This high energy and optimism can be resourceful as it can be sometimes disastrous. The Aries are more centred around themselves and the realization of their own projects. This striving for power and self-determination isn’t negative per se, although it can be interpreted as egotistical behaviour sometimes.
This constellation is the smallest of all the constellations. It is only composed of four stars: Hamla, Sheratan, Mesathrim and 41 Arietris. As always it is very hard to spot, unfortunately. You can see it better in December, regardless of the hemisphere you are located in.
Your best shot would be to start locating the star Polaris which is the easiest star to spot in the sky (although it isn’t the brightest). The constellation represents the golden ram, although rather very abstractly. You can’t distinctively see the shape of the goat.
March Star Signs:
At first glance, Pisces and Aries are very different signs. They do share a lot in common though; firstly, they are both very passionate signs. Pisces is a more passive sign that constructs a lot of imaginary scenarios, whereas the Aries sign turns everything into action fast. The transition from Pisces to Aries is made by transforming the full force of the fantasies of the Pisces into the raw action of the Aries.
