March 03: Venus square Saturn. Loving yourself becomes a focal point. Your skin has minor irritation due to a rise in temperature. Red lipstick would be an overkill today.

March 04: Venus moves into Taurus. Quality over quantity! Your skin will be glowing, and you'll feel sensual and beautiful all month long in the perfect shade of plum.

March 08: Venus conjunct Uranus. Be willing to try something new! Change your look or invest in a new aspect of your skincare—you'll be glad you did!

March 09: Full Moon in Virgo. Get in the practice of letting go, going more with the flow, and being less self-critical. Incorporate something shimmering, translucent, or rose gold into your beauty regimen.

March 09: Mercury direct Aquarius. Be clearer about how you want to put your best foot forth. Muting yourself to appease others will no longer work. Get creative and feel your way into your process.

March 19: Sun enters Aries, making it officially Aries season! Happy Birthday, Aries! This is a unique year for you. This goes for everyone, not only Aries this season. Find your favorite shade of red and wear it to feel confident and beautiful.

March 20: Mars conjunct Jupiter in Capricorn ignited, and reactive! You're energized to make a difference. Treat your skin with a calming mask.

March 21–Saturn enters Aquarius, making this a big deal. Saturn will be here for the next two and a half years. Invest in a refining and calming mask.

March 23–Mars conjunct Pluto. Be mindful of who and what you've giving energy too. This is a powerful day, and you don't want to waste this boost of superpower energy on things or people who aren’t worth it. Detoxing and deep breathing are the keys to a beautiful skin today.

March 24–New Moon in Aries 4 degrees. A healing and magnetic day. Opt for soft rose tones, a neutral eye, good lipstick, and lots of dewy moisture.

March 28–Saturn and Pluto conjoined. You’ll feel focused, determined, and resilient today; you can do anything when you try. Remember to focus on what you want to create rather than what you don't.

March 30–Mars enters Aquarius, leading to radical, rebellious, unattached, coolheaded, uniquely expressive vibes. Opt for chrome nails and a dark lip.

March 31–Mars conjunct Saturn. This energy isn’t for the lighthearted. Actions taken today will play out over the next two years, so be cognizant of how you proceed. Fear shouldn't have a place in your life, only strategy, and thoughtfulness. Plan to channel your intensity through constructive activities.
