Fitness Forecast for March

May the stars be ever in your favor for March. 

March begins with the Sun and Mars in Pisces, the sign of intuition, dreams, and compassion. Last month it was all about the flow. That emphasis will continue until Mars changes signs on the 12th, moving from gentle Pisces to fiery, impulsive, and sometimes reckless Aries.

The Sun joins Mars in Aries on March 20th. the first day of Spring ~ also known as the Spring Equinox. If you’re champing at the bit for a new start, the Sun and Mars in Aries are able to provide vigorous energy and motivation to meet your new fitness goals.

Uranus, the planet signifying rebellion and invention, has been in Aries since 2010, ushering in a new era of self-assertion. The Sun and Mars will encounter this head-strong, independent energy to create a level of self-assertion that we haven’t seen in quite a while. There is no stopping this indomitable trio through the end March. Come April, the energy will start to dissipate. Make haste, not waste.

Why Such an Emphasis on Mars?

Astrology is much more than Sun signs. Each planet represents a force active in everyone’s life. Mars is the planet of action. It’s what gets you up and moving and is the prime motivator in getting us off the sofa and into workout mode.


Fitness Foes

Each sign is associated with a specific part of the body, beginning with Aries’ focus on the head and eyes, moving down the body, and ending with Pisces and the feet. This ancient illustration shows you which part of the body is associated with each sign.

With Mars is in Pisces through the 12th, keep your focus on caring for your feet. If you’re still wearing worn-out workout shoes or have foot problems you haven’t addressed, treat yourself better than that.

When Mars moves into Aries, be on the alert for ways to safeguard your head and eyes. Are you a cyclist who doesn’t own a helmet? Get one. If you’re moving your workout outdoors as the weather warms up, keep your eyes safe from harmful rays with sunglasses that give you the proper UV protection. Other foes to note are headaches and dizziness. Since Mars and Aries will push themselves to the limit, there is a strong possibility for injury when these forces merge without caution.

Find the pleasure in your workouts to stay the course.

Gemini ~ You’re enlivened and enthusiastic with Mars in Aries energy, Gemini. It’s an auspicious time to try various workouts instead of sticking to the same-old same-old. That will just bore and frustrate you. Don’t let distractions get the best of you and talk to your instructors to get the most from your workouts.

Cancer ~ Mars in Aries can have you struggling with how you view your body and progress on reaching your fitness goals, Cancer. Emotions can run high now. You can make progress toward your fitness goals by focusing on problem areas. Use this period to understand your relationship with food. You need comfort food so don’t give it up completely. Depriving yourself will only make you angry and sabotage your efforts.

Leo ~ This is an easy time for you, Leo. The frustration you feel at the beginning of March should give way to confident enthusiasm by mid-month. Everything seems like smooth sailing. Give yourself credit for your fitness accomplishments instead of taking them for granted. When was the last time you monitored your heart rate during exercise?

Virgo ~ This is a great time to modify your diet and workouts, Virgo. You’re great at analyzing and editing. Apply those skills to your fitness goals. Whatever feels off to you needs to be adjusted. Put your nose to the grindstone and let go of what’s not working for you.

Libra ~ The Mars in Aries energy may be more difficult for you than for most, Libra. Workout partners may push you to the limit now or you may find fault with your instructors or other people in class. Keep it between the ditches, as they say, avoiding confrontations. They are sure to crop up at this time.

Scorpio ~ Mars is one of your planetary rulers, Scorpio, along with Pluto. They are a powerful pair that isn’t for the faint-hearted. Use this awesome duo to work through this period. Just like Virgo, this is a period of adjustment for you. You’re not content to analyze, though. You enlist the power of your desires and emotions to reach your ultimate goal while eliminating what needs to go.

Sagittarius ~ Are you ready for greener pastures, Sagittarius? The world is your oyster now if you want it to be. You might find yourself exploring new types of exercise that make you feel free and alive and wondering why you hadn’t tried them before. You are one of the athletes of the zodiac, with team sports being one of your strong points. Have you considering coaching?

Capricorn ~ Capricorn seeks a position of power, but Mars in Aries is an independent spirit that refuses to be controlled. That’s where your attention is needed, Capricorn. There’s a firebrand in you that can make major progress if you relax into it. Be cautious but not rigid in deciding on your fitness goals during this period. As you work through difficult areas, give yourself the recognition you deserve for even small accomplishments.

Aquarius ~ Mars will join forces with your ruling planet, Uranus. This is a volatile force, Aquarius. Harness this power to get favorable results from your workouts now. With greater ability and increased enthusiasm comes a greater risk of injury. Exercise caution, but expect good results. There may be disruptions to your regular routines.

Pisces ~ You’re likely to be more uneasy with this energy than the other signs, Pisces, feeling like things are moving too fast or that you just can’t connect. If this happens, it’s wise to slow down and regroup. Your sensitive system needs plenty of downtime. Movements that are slow and rhythmic can bring benefits your way. Tango and other forms of ballroom dance are excellent for flexibility and stamina. Water aerobics is the perfect blend for Mars and Pisces.

February Fitness Forecast

It’s time to mix up your workout! Strech out and branch out with something new.

The month starts off with the sun in Aquarius, the sign of invention and experimentation. If your fitness routine is feeling a little dull and uninspiring, change it up to rev it up.

On the 18th, the  Sun moves into dreamy, mystical Pisces. The spirit/body connection will take on more importance and it becomes all about the flow.

Mars, the motivator, joins the Sun in imaginative Pisces on the 1st and stays there until March 13th. While in Pisces, Mars enjoys gentle yoga and swimming. If a pool is not available, long soaks in the tub will satisfy the Pisces desire to be in or near the water. Pisces is moved by music, so get a great groove going with uplifting, rhythmic music that feeds your body and soul.

Fitness Foes

Mars turns his attention to our feet as he travels through Pisces. Fitness foes to be on the alert for are blisters, toe injuries, athlete’s foot rash, gout, stress fractures, neuropathy, plantar faciitis, heel spurs, and bad-fitting or worn out workout shoes. Don’t skimp on the right shoes for your workout and be sure your shoes give your arches the support they need.

Pisces is one of the water signs, along with Cancer and Scorpio. The water signs have a tendency to bloat, so watch your salt intake. Check the ingredients on all your sports drinks and don’t overload on sodium.

By the Signs
If you know your Rising Sign, read that forecast, too.
You'll get a more complete picture of what February holds for you.


Aries ~ February brings relative ease as long as you keep the train/rest balance in the right ratio. Mars in Pisces might lull you into slacking off a bit in favor of wining and dining this month, but your fiery nature knows how to kick it up and resist overindulging. February has the potential to be a 4-star month for you.
Taurus ~ Step out of your comfort zone to conquer those long-lived obstacles you’ve been wanting to get past. Mars in Pisces is a natural to give you a behind-the-scenes boost, especially after the 19th.
Gemini ~ You may feel like you’re struggling all month, Gemini, especially after the 18th. Gaining ground is more likely in the first part of the month while the sun is in Aquarius. After the 18th, try a low-key approach and hold steady.
Cancer ~ Being a water sign yourself, Mars in Pisces is almost second nature to you. Adjustment to your routines in the early part of February allows an even easier flow after the 18th. You feel a little like Goldilocks looking for just the right chair. You’ll find it.
Leo ~ The cosmic tide will test your physical patience this month, Leo. Out of sync and at cross purposes seems to be the daily routine. There’s an opportunity for major breakthroughs, though. You just have to know what has served you in the past that isn’t working for you anymore. Let it go.
Virgo ~ Virgo is known for its sensitive constitution. Stress and emotional upsets can show up in physical ways that may have you scratching your head or, at least, rubbing that delicate tummy of yours. This is a good month for R&R. Find a Pisces pal and just kick back.
Libra ~ Keep the idea of “grace” in your mind this month, Libra, or you could find yourself feeling like a real klutz. Read the fitness foes for this month again and keep an eye out for anything that can trip you up. Stubbed or broken toes will keep you on the sidelines.
Scorpio ~ February can be a really good month for Scorpio, especially after the 18th when the sun brings ease to your own sign. Enjoyment is the key to your workouts this month. Youth and vigor are the results of actually making your workouts fun.
Sagittarius ~ The grass is always greener to Sagittarius. What seems like a good change of pace for you in the early part of the month may be tougher than you thought. You might be irked by plateaus that you want to push past. Plateaus are just the body’s way of saying it’s time to readjust. Idle your motor for a while.
Capricorn ~ February is a lovely month for you, Capricorn. You are definitely in the groove in your workouts and feeling like Rocky. You can set the bar higher this month and barely even notice.
Aquarius ~ You’ve got the Sun and Mars in your corner all month. If you’re looking to start a diet or you’re just beginning a fitness routine, you’ll have cosmic support all month, and especially after the New Moon in Aquarius on the 10th. You won’t have this lucky opportunity again for two years, so cash in while you can.
Pisces ~ With Mars fueling your Sun, Pisces, you have everything you need to make giant strides this month. You aren’t just motivated, you want to lead your own classes! After the 18th, you’ll feel like the world is your oyster. Be extra aware of this month’s fitness foes, though, because your feet are likely to need some extra attention. Take good care of them. If your feet hurt, you hurt all over.
