Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

The Anglo-Saxons called the month Hlyd monath which means Stormy month, or Hraed monath which means Rugged month.

The word ‘March’ comes from the Roman ‘Martius’. This was originally the first month of the Roman calendar and was named after Mars, the god of war. March was the beginning of our calendar year. We changed to the ‘New Style’ or 'Gregorian calendar in 1752, and it is only since then when we the year began on 1st January.

The March equinox occurs the moment the sun crosses the celestial equator from south to north. This happens either on March 19, 20 or 21 every year.

The first day of March always signals that winter is on its last legs and on its way out. I’m really looking forward to spring!


EDIT — The second day of March has been one continual snow storm. We woke up this morning to a couple of inches on the ground and it hasn’t stopped coming down all day.

Gah, As a Taurus, born on the strongest day of the Taurian calendar, I don’t mesh well with most zodiacs, except Cancer.

This gives me a thread idea…
