There's an unusual focus on Mercury aspects in March.  Pisces Mercury at the start focuses on winding up communications, conversations, discussions. On the 4th conjunct Neptune makes for a potentially confusing day, on the 6th, conjunct the Sun, a bright cheerful day; on the 8th sextile Pluto, revelations or mysteries surface or are solved; on the 12th, squared by Saturn a serious day with a potential for obstacles.

On the 13th Mercury enters Aries and focus is on all things new and trendy. On the 18th Mercury Venus conjunct makes a felicitous day for proposals. On the 23rd, square Pluto could mean bad weather, bad news or both. On the 24th opposing Jupiter: truth or lies revealed; on the 26th, conjunct Uranus potential explosions! on the 29th trine Saturn, responsible reactions, and on the 31st, Mercury enters Taurus for a steady, strong journey forward.  

Venus in Aries all month turns retrograde on the 9th, we may be rethinking choices, redoing wardrobes: going over jewelry and clothing to see what we want to keep and what we what to get rid of. Venus is all about choices, for or against. Some decisions may come up for review and perhaps revision, especially if made impulsively, with Venus in Aries this is always a possibility. Sun conjunct Venus on the 25th makes for a very sweet day.

Mars changes signs this month, beginning the month in Aries, good for initiating action, then on the 9th moving into Taurus, which helps continue what we have begun. Projects begun during Aries Mars , especially if they are innovative or inventive get a good boost. On the other hand when Mars is in Aries it is easier to be careless or impulsive, so be mindful on the road or when handling sharp tools.  On the 5th Mars trines Saturn making for a great day for accomplishment.

The Sun begins the month in Pisces. This is the finishing up time of year so that we can be ready for the initiation of a new season as well sa a new Solar year. Wind up any projects, clear out debris and be ready when the Sun moves into Aries for the Equinox on the 20th, ushering in spring. This is just the beginning, though; we can't expect the warmth of it for a while. At least the days will be of equal length. The hours of daylight advance from that date on until Midsummer in June. 

The Full Moon in Virgo on the 12th is shadowed by a Mercury Saturn square. This could either cramp her expansive style, or enhance the sense of duty and responsibility Virgo brings to the table. The New Moon on the 26th is preceded by a Mercury Uranus conjunction the day before. This makes me wonder if there will be some unusual or mind blowing news, revelations or activity around transportation or communication over the next day or two.

The NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championship, colloquially known as "March Madness," is a 20-day tournament that begins in March (March 17th 2016 Wikipedia) ; however, the Championship Game is played in early April (April 6th 2015). The same holds true for the NCAA Women's Division I Basketball Championship as well. See the the official website of the NCAA Championships for further detail .

March is the third month of the year in the Gregorian Calendar and one of seven Gregorian months with the length of 31 Days. In ancient Rome, March was called Martius, so named after Mars, the Roman god of war.

March was originally the first month of the Roman calendar before the winter months of January and February were added about 700 BC by King Numa Pompilius. It ceased to be the first month of the calendar year (the year when displayed as twelve months) about 450 BC during the time of the decemvirs, when January assumed that position. Roman consuls entered office in March between 222 BC and 153 BC, hence Roman events dated via the consular year began in March during that period. The numbered year began on March 1 in Russia until the end of the fifteenth century. Great Britain and her colonies continued to use March 25 until 1752, the same year they finally adopted the Gregorian calendar.

In Finnish, the month is called maaliskuu, which originates from maallinen kuu meaning earthy month. This is because in maaliskuu earth started to show from under the snow. Historical names for March include the Saxon term Lenctmonat, named for the equinox and eventual lengthening of days and the eventual namesake of Lent. The Saxons also called March Rhed-monat (for their goddess Rhedam); ancient Britons called it hyld-monath (meaning loud or stormy).

There is an adage that March "comes in like a lion, but goes out like a lamb", referring to the weather that some regions experience during the month. This saying is meant to demonstrate the unpredictable weather which often occurs as the seasons change.

March in the Northern Hemisphere is the seasonal equivalent to September in the Southern Hemisphere (and vice versa).

March begins on the same day of the week as February, excepting leap years, and as November every year.

March's birth flower is the Jonquil or the Daffodil.

March's birthstone is aquamarine for Pisces and diamond for Aries
