What Zodiac Sign Is March?

What Zodiac Sign Is March?

What zodiac sign is March? In Western astrology, there are twelve (12) zodiac signs. Each sign is named for the constellation that was passing through the sky during specific times of the year. We mark these times every 28 – 30 day period or what we call a calendar month. So you can see why we have twelve (12) signs for twelve (12) months.
So what is March’s astrology sign? If you are born in the month of March, you can actually be one of two zodiac or astrological signs (also called sun signs) for this month. The dominant sun sign energy for the month of March is Pisces, which occupies the majority of the days of March. Only the last remaining days in March are devoted to the zodiac sign of Aries. The horoscope dates for Pisces fall between the end of February until March.

Because of the slight changes in numbers of days contained within a month vary from year to year, you will need to calculate the day, month, and year in order to accurately determine your specific zodiac sign. More often the switch from one zodiac sign to another occurs around the 20th – 23rd day of the month. But again, referring to a zodiac or astrological sign birth calculator or an ephemeris (an astrological table of planetary movement) will help you find your exact sun sign.

Pisces is the 12th and final sign of the zodiac and marks the end of winter season as well as the culmination of the first quarter of the year (Q1). Because it is the final astrological sign of the zodiac, Pisces encapsulates qualities of all of the other zodiac signs, and represents the transition from an incarnated life to the spirit world. The same energy is carried in the number 9 in Numerology or Gematria.

What Are Pisces Traits? / Pisces Characteristics

So now you know what zodiac sign is March, but what about Pisces characteristics? What are Pisces traits? If we were to describe Pisces qualities, some words that come to mind are visionary (being ahead of their time), spiritual, humble, creative, naïve, innocent, trusting, emotionally open, sympathetic, shy, and highly imaginative.

Overall, Pisces are dreamers. They wish for the world to be different than it is now. Pisces long for a utopia. Unfortunately, this desire for a utopia doesn’t fit into our real world landscape and is a formula for continual abject disappointment for Pisces.

The utopia Pisceans seek requires real work and a great spiritual revelation and outpouring by the masses in order to move from the 3D (3rd dimension) into the 5D (5th dimension). This will take some time. Years, decades, perhaps? Some say we are at the brink. But either way, it will take time and effort. Is Pisces willing to put in that time and effort? This remains to be seen.

What Are Pisces Known For

An accurate Pisces description starts with their intuition. Pisceans are natural observers and can pick up on the energies of those around them. The barrier between themselves and the world is very porous. This is why it’s so important that Pisces choose the right partners and associates because Pisces will absorb the energies around them.
Absorbing negative energy is never good. Pisces will benefit from practicing regular meditation where the Pisces native is separated from the world. Be sure to employ a discipline of grounding oneself before undertaking any type of metaphysical work.
Pisces are known for having psychic abilities. This can be any one of “the clair senses”. These are clairaudience, clairempathy, clairgustance, clairscent, clairsentience, clairtangency, and clairvoyance. (Clairscent has a few other names such as clairalience, clairessence clairolfaction, and clairosmesis.) Pisces can also be well practiced in numerous divinatory methods: astrology, tarot, runes, I ching, reiki, energy healing, etc.

Because of their strong intuition, Pisces who choose to develop any one of the psychic abilities on this list can be great mentors and helpers of humanity. Often Pisces natives are drawn to healing professions because of their strong empathetic and altruistic leaning.

What Type Of Person Is A Pisces?

Overall, it’s safe to say that Pisces are sensitive. They pick up on other people’s feelings very easily as well as generating intense emotions all on their own. On the emotional spectrum, Pisces usually travel between somber and ecstatic. Pisces will rely on their close friends, family, and life partners to understand which emotion they should be experiencing and at what time. Pisces is highly dependent and doesn’t like to be solo.
Pisces have difficulty with standing on their own two feet, literally and figuratively. Pisces tend to latch on to a partner to find footing. Because Pisceans don’t relate to others very well, they feel uncomfortable in this world. The term “fish out of water” comes to mind. Many Pisceans are bored with this life and incarnation. Due to the fact that they are the last sign of the zodiac, Pisceans often carry a “been there, done that” attitude to life.

Constantly daydreaming, or with their head in the clouds, (sometimes even while driving), Pisces often choose the most inappropriate time to fantasize because they are routinely trying to escape this world and move into the next spiritual evolutionary phase. They have one foot in this world and one foot in the spirit world. This is why many Pisceans have prophetic dreams, thoughts, and are highly connected to the Divinity.


Pisceans daydream quite a bit. Having a robust imagination is one of their best traits. With it they are able to dream up wild and novel ideas that are often ahead of their time and move society onto the next level (transformational).

Such as fish do, Pisces have an affinity for water. Living by the ocean is a highly desired and should be a chief aim during the Piscean lifetime. Remember that Pisces ruling planet is Neptune. In Roman mythology, Neptune is the ruler of the ocean. (In Ancient Greek, Neptune’s name was Poseidon.)

What Does Pisces Look Like?

When it comes to hair on the head, Pisces (or Pisces rising / ascendant) tend to have thin or thinning hair. Why? Because the word “Pisces” is the Latin translation for “Fish.” And fish don’t have hair. So many Pisceans will have fine hair or bald heads.

Walking is a different story altogether. Fish aren’t accustomed to walking. They swim. So for a Piscean, the act of walking is not going to be like every other zodiac sign. Pisces (or Pisces rising or ascendant) will have an odd way of walking. If you pay attention to the way they move their legs and feet, their gait and stride is often angled and move at a slant, rather than in a straight line.

“Feet of an Apostle” Albrecht Dürer (1471–1528), German | Feet of an apostle, study on “Heller Altarpiece”, 1508 | Sketch. Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. Rotterdam, https://www.boijmans.nl/index.php/en/collection/artworks/78049/study-of-two-feet-for-the-apostle-paul-in-the-heller-altarpiece

Pisces rules the feet. So Pisceans should make a point of taking special care of their feet. Reflexology classes to learn about the foot-body connection, as well as comfortable, shoes, regular pedicures, and foot massages. Pisces often suffer from flat feet (also known as fallen arches). Foot problems often lead to back problems. So beware Pisces natives.

Pisces Traits

Piscean personality traits cover a spectrum of character types: visionary, scholar, spiritualist, space cadet, and seeker of emotional support & attention. As we view the Pisces natives through the lens of astrology, it allows us to examine more closely Piscean attributes, qualities, and personal peculiarities. If you are familiar with the pisces zodiac sign (or know someone in your life that carries the astrology sign), you can look for these pisces traits and see if they match-up with pisces astrology.

A few different flavors of Pisceans:
  • academic, smart, intellectual, genius (Cindy Crawford, Sharon Stone)
  • spiritual (Einstein)
  • pioneering, visionary (Steve Jobs) – upgrade
  • flakey, space-cadet (any Piscean behind the wheel of a vehicle)
  • been there, done that

Pioneering and Visionary

Some say Pisces has the ability to see into the future. In actuality, Pisces has the ability to transport us into the future by bringing the tomorrow into today. Pisceans have the unique and uncanny knack for reconstructing our reality by leveraging imagination and invention, thus propelling our society forward and transforming our world. Below are some examples of notable Piscean pioneers.


Alexander Graham Bell (3 March 1847) – inventor credited with creating the first practical telephone and also co-founded the American Telephone and Telegraph Company (AT&T).

Rhonda Byrne (12 ‎March 1951) – Australian writer and filmmaker who popularized the spiritual Law of Attraction through her pioneering book and documentary film titled, The Secret (2006) bringing spirituality to the mainstream. She has since followed up with the release of her other books The Power (book), The Magic (book), Hero (book). You can find all four (4) books in The Secret book collection series here.

Julius Erving – Pro Basketball Player,

Julius Erving (22 February 1950) – also referred to as, “Dr. J”, popularized the slam dunk in professional basketball (NBA) by incorporating more athletically executed versions (with high-flying jumps and turns). He began the evolution of the slam dunk which elevated dunking into the standard it is today.

Academically-inclined / Scholarly

When it comes to book smarts, Pisces has the edge. Remember that Pisces is the final sign of the zodiac, so in past lives it has experienced all of the stages of life beforehand. This life is the final step. So Pisces has the advantage of gathering all of that previous experience and collecting it and leveraging it for academic achievement.

In fact, learning in an academic environment comes very naturally, often catapulting way past their schoolmates. Hours and hours of studying is not that necessary. Often the concepts just ‘come’ to them, perhaps even with a photographic memory.

Rashida Jones (25 February 1976) has all the hallmarks of a book-smart Piscean, even referring to herself as a “straight-up nerd”. Her famous father, and fellow Piscean, Quincy Jones, would often catch a six-year-old Rashida sneaking in a late-night reading session underneath the covers equipped with a flashlight and thumbing through five books at a time way past bedtime.

Wu-Tang Clan member, Clifford Smith (2 March 1971), better known by the stage name Method Man, was a straight-A student in high school. Mr. Smith was also a lacrosse player and even a trombonist in high school, which further establishes the versatility of Pisces natives.

Pisces Personality

In terms of how pisces acts, Pisces tend to be lower energy, calmer personalities. Although they can be somewhat emotional, the emotions usually fluctuate between somber and cheerful. Pisceans aren’t known for having fiery outbursts of anger, but from time to time can show their ire. In fact, they prefer sensuality and emotional warmth.

How To Improve Pisces Personality

As with all zodiac signs, there is room for improvement. Pisces need to work on their tendency to latch onto others for emotional support. Learning to stand on one’s own two feet is truly key to Piscean development. A chief complaint of Pisces is their neediness in relationships. Building self-esteem and working on self confidence is a good skill for Pisces natives.
