BARBARI Mindfulness, Thoughts


March might technically have more winter days than spring, but that doesn’t mean you have to be stuck with a cold and dreary mindset. Instead of looking to others for guidance, this month is all about turning inward for inspiration—just like caterpillars do when they’re ready to morph into butterflies.

Although Mercury is still rattling things in retrograde for the first ten days of March, you can still find balance from within. Toward the end of the month, Saturn will say sayonara to Capricorn and head straight into Aquarius, which may foster personal growth for all zodiac signs. Without delay, here are your March horoscopes:

PISCES, February 19 – March 20
Who needs a hero when you have yourself to look up to? You’re a lot closer to accomplishing your goals than you think, Pisces, so don’t be afraid to take a chance. Be your own self-inspiring protagonist, and forge ahead into full bloom.

ARIES, March 21 – April 20

The first day of spring is March 19, but you don’t have to wait that long to get sprung on yours truly. Look back on your recent accomplishments, no matter how big or small, and give yourself a pat on the back. It’s your time to shine, humbleness be damned.

TAURUS, April 21 – May 20
A competitive spirit never hurt anyone, and sometimes, the healthiest competitions are with ourselves. Whether it’s your work, hobbies, wellness, or your social life, why not give yourself a run for your money? Last-year you was great and all, but this-year you is in a league of their own.

GEMINI, May 21 – June 20
This month, be your own creative director and curate a life of inspiration. March 26 is Make Up Your Own Holiday Day. We suggest making it all about your past, present, and future accomplishments. If that’s not self-inspiring, we don’t know what is.


CANCER, June 21 – July 22
March is Women’s History Month, and it’s time to celebrate your journey to feminism, no matter your gender. The pursuit of equality is never in vain, and it’s worth pausing to reflect on little victories. Continue to stand up for yourself and others while fighting the good fight.

LEO, July 23 – August 22
Oftentimes, we know exactly what to do yet still seek the guidance of others. This month, dig deep for internal wisdom. When you struggle for answers, stop to think about the advice you’d give a friend in a similar situation. Follow this advice, and see where it takes you.

VIRGO, August 23 – September 22
If the first couple months of 2020 left you feeling lethargic and aloof, get ready for renewed energy in March. Daylight savings might eliminate an hour of sleep, but you can expect the shift to leave you with a pep in your step and a newfound confidence in yourself.

LIBRA, September 23 – October 22
Even-keeled Libras find comfort in day-to-day routines. And yet, this monotony can inhibit creativity. This March, dip your toes outside your comfort zone and splash around with spontaneity. You might find yourself inspired by the thrill.

SCORPIO, October 23 – November 22
Scorpios are inherent leaders who are known for their fearless curiosity. As a natural-born alpha, you’re used to guiding others, but this month, it’s time to start trusting yourself. When you find yourself at a crossroads, lean into your instincts and go with your gut.

SAGITTARIUS, November 23 – December 21
Your adventurous nature is dying to come out and play, and you’ve been ignoring it for too long. Instead of letting the demands of life put a damper on your plans, embrace your daring side this March. While you don’t have to do anything crazy, it’s important to honor all aspects of your personality.

CAPRICORN, December 22 – January 20
As flowers begin to bloom this spring, the ambitious part of your persona will take center stage. The people around you might be making more time for play, but if your intuition is telling you to prioritize work this March, you’ll be glad you did.

AQUARIUS, January 21 – February 18
As an Aquarius, you’re not usually one to go with the flow, but this March, your autonomous nature will be stronger than ever. Embrace this disposition, and lead with assertion. Instead of following others, look to yourself for inspiration, and create your own flow.
