March is officially in session, and trust me when I say it may be one of the most pivotal months of 2023. There are big astrological shifts headed our way, and your March 5 weekly horoscope is bringing some of these brand new energies to the forefront. Are you ready to embark on this new chapter? With discipline, focus, and humility, you will be granted access to what will allow your dreams to become a reality.
If you’re in your feels at the start of the week, it’s likely due to tensions rising before the moon reaches its peak of fullness. In the meantime, while glimmering through dreamy Pisces, the sun will harmonize with rebellious Uranus on March 6, which continues to signal the change and newness underway. If you’re looking for ways to harness this electric synergy, feel free to experiment with your creativity and mystical pursuits; the results may surprise you. On March 7, there will be a full moon in Virgo, bringing emphasis to mercurial matters such as solutions, processes, and health routines. The irony of this lunation, however, is that Virgo’s celestial ruler, Mercury, will be transiting through Pisces. This means, despite longing for organization and productive solutions, you will be more likely to question the infinite possibilities.
Mars will also be the focal point of a chaotic T-Square between the sun in Pisces and the Virgo moon, creating a bit of friction and triggering feelings of restlessness. Don’t lose patience just yet, give it a minute for the full moon to do its thing. Besides, this will be less than an hour before Saturn officially enters Pisces, joining Mercury, Neptune, and the sun. Overall, this will bring structure and grounding to the area where Pisces lives in your birth chart. If you’ve been prone to fantasizing or over-idealizing, this transit will bring you back to reality.
In other news, the week comes to a close with Venus making a charming sextile to Mars on March 11, which is enthusiastic and complimentary given the planet of love’s journey through Aries. That said, if you’ve been contemplating how to take the lead with your finances, relationships, or a passion project, this transit is here to support this exciting endeavor. Mercury will also be in harmony with Uranus, which is nothing short of ideal for brainstorming and creative pursuits.
If you’re wondering what else this week has in store for you, read on for your weekly horoscope for March 5 through March 11, according to your zodiac sign and your rising sign. For a look at the year ahead, also read your 2023 yearly horoscope.
Aries (March 21–April 19) Weekly Horoscope For March 5, 2023
You’re learning how to go with the flow, Aries. The week of March 5 kicks off at full speed when the moon enters Virgo. Use this time to make sure all of your logistical stressors are up to par. The next day, while energizing your 12th house of dreams and unconscious patterns, the sun will meet with Uranus in a liberating sextile. Inhale and exhale through this, as you’ll be encouraged to surrender all doubts and fears, especially when it comes to your sense of security.
On March 7, the full moon will charge up your sixth house of day-to-day routines, all while facing off with your celestial ruler, Mars. Know that this could make you feel more confrontational than usual, especially with those in your immediate environment, so take a deep breath before you lose your cool. Either way, you could have a sudden epiphany about your mindfulness rituals or an area where you’ve been seeking results. To finish off the week, Saturn will be entering Pisces, and this is where you will embark on a new journey revolving around your spiritual self-mastery. Be sure to harness the magic of the Venus-Mars sextile on March 11 by being open about your thoughts.
Taurus (April 20–May 20) Weekly Horoscope For March 5, 2023
Practice makes perfect, Taurus. On March 5, the moon will slip into Virgo before reaching its peak of fullness in this area of your chart midweek. With this energy, you could find yourself hyper-focusing on themes surrounding your talents, skills, abilities, and maybe even putting a microscope on a romantic situation. Either way, you may decide to rebel against the norm on March 6, when the sun meets with Uranus in your sign. This could bring a desire to break free, if not explore other opportunities in general.
On March 7, in addition to the full moon in Virgo lighting up the most self-fulfilling house in your birth chart, Saturn will be making its official debut in Pisces. With this transit, you can start by getting clear on your long-term goals and dreams. After the moon enters Scorpio and your relationship sector on March 10, your celestial ruler, Venus, will meet with Mars via your second house of finances, stability, and values. You deserve some alone time, so feel free to take this time to retreat.
Gemini (May 21–June 20) Weekly Horoscope For March 5, 2023
Feeling homesick, Gemini? The week of March 5 begins on a rather introspective note, as the moon will slip into Virgo and your fourth house of home, family, and innermost feelings. Keep in mind, the moon will become full two days later, so if you find yourself feeling more nostalgic or sensitive than usual, it’s not a coincidence. On March 6, while energizing your 10th house of authority and reputation, the sun will harmonize with Uranus via your secretive 12th house of privacy, healing, and unconscious patterns. This could bring a subliminal breakthrough from an authority figure in the workplace or a prominent parental figure. Either way, you’ll catch onto something you hadn’t recognized before, and this could potentially go hand in hand with the full moon the following day.
With the full moon happening the following day, this lunation, led by Mars in your sign, will trigger a T-Square between the sun and moon. If you’re more vocal than usual or simply impatient with the structure surrounding your family dynamics, take a moment to assess the situation. After all, you’re more hotheaded with the red planet in your sign, so take a deep breath. The good news is you will be as magnetic as ever on March 11, when Venus joins Mars in a sextile. Network and socialize wisely.
Cancer (June 21–July 22) Weekly Horoscope For March 5, 2023
It’s all a matter of getting organized, Cancer. The full-moon tension starts to build on March 5, when the moon enters Virgo and your third house of communication, thought processes, and immediate surroundings. If you have a lot on your plate during this time, don’t focus so much on the burden of these responsibilities. Fortunately, a productive sun-Uranus sextile on March 6 will ignite your ninth house of expansion and 11th house of community affairs, propelling you forward toward a new venture, while others of you may consider other options or solutions.
Charging up your third house of inner circles and miscellanies, the full moon on March 7 will be led by Mars in your 12th house of privacy. This could create friction between your inner restlessness and desire to take action, and the sun in Pisces could cloud your visions of the future. Take a step back if needed, especially since things aren’t necessarily clear during this time. If you’re working on a professional venture behind the scenes, however, be sure to harness the Venus-Mars sextile on March 11.
Leo (July 23–Aug. 22) Weekly Horoscope For March 5, 2023
Don’t lose sight of your values, heirlooms, and blessings, Leo. The week of March 5 begins by focusing on your sense of security, thanks to the moon’s ingress into Virgo. This will make more sense during the full moon midweek, but when considering the sun’s sextile to Uranus the following day, this emphasis on security more than likely has something to do with an employer or another source of income you’ve been depending on. Stay calm and diligent as you navigate this.
On March 7, the moon will peak in Virgo less than an hour before Saturn makes its official ingress into Pisces and your eighth house of joint ventures, shared resources, and other people’s money. This lunation will be fueled by Mars in Gemini, which may create friction between what you know to be true versus what you expect from a significant other, so try to silence the side noise if possible. The good news is you will have the confidence and clarity to move forward toward the end of the week when Venus harmonizes with Mars on March 11.
Virgo (Aug. 23–Sept. 22) Weekly Horoscope For March 5, 2023
You’ve got an interesting week ahead, Virgo. With the moon entering your sign on March 5, you will likely start the week off on a more sensitive note. This is to be expected, when considering the sun’s sextile to Uranus, which will ignite your relationship sector and ninth house of expansion. This sensitivity could have something to do with a significant other, but before getting too far in your feels, know that your outlook on relationships is changing nonetheless, so don’t inhibit yourself from exploring other territories.
On March 7, the moon will be full in your sign, all while sitting across from the sun in your relationship sector. Mars in Gemini will also be activating a T-Square between the sun and moon, which could create friction between your desire to take charge versus the ambiguity surrounding the outcome. Something is being brought to your attention either way, specifically when it comes to your sense of self and how you approach relationships in general. On March 11, your celestial ruler, Mercury, will link up with Uranus, adding a layer of unconventionality and rebellion to your exchanges.
Libra (Sept. 23–Oct. 22) Weekly Horoscope For March 5, 2023
Take a breather, Libra. This is especially true with the moon slipping into Virgo to start the week. The following day, however, the sun will meet with Uranus in a sweet sextile, which could shake things up in your sixth house of routines and eighth house of mergers. During this time, don’t be afraid to lean on your significant other or close friends for support. With the moon reaching its peak on March 7, chances are you will gain some sort of insight around the structure of your daily rituals and health habits, so don’t overlook what is being brought to your attention.
Saturn will also be making its official debut in this area of your chart this week. With this lunation led by Mars in Gemini, be mindful of your mental, physical, and emotional well-being. Your approach to others could suddenly spice up on March 11, too, as your celestial ruler, Venus, dances with Mars. Whether personally or professionally, you have not only the charm but also the audacity. Use it wisely.
Scorpio (Oct. 23–Nov. 21) Weekly Horoscope For March 5, 2023
When it comes to the logistical side of your community affairs, you’re being encouraged to become more organized, Scorpio. The week of March 5 begins with the moon entering Virgo and your 11th house of associations, community affairs, and individual freedom. Just days before the full moon in this area of your chart, you could begin to realize something needs readjusting, whether it be in terms of friendship or your future visions. On March 6, while energizing your fifth house of love, passion projects, and self-expression, the sun will harmonize with Uranus in your relationship sector. This could shake things up in your love life or in regards to how you show your creativity.
When the moon peaks in Virgo on March 7, you could gain insight on a new venture — or perhaps even a new system that needs to be integrated into your modus operandi. For some of you, that may look like a social media collaboration of sorts. But while in a T-Square with Mars and the sun, a contractual agreement could be the reason next steps are up in the air. To finish off the week, Saturn will be joining the sun, Mercury, and Neptune that same day, bringing structure and stability to your creative pursuits and personal branding. Lean on Venus’s sextile to Mars on March 11, especially those of you interested in pursuing a new work opportunity.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22–Dec. 21) Weekly Horoscope For March 5, 2023
Taking the lead at work, Sagittarius? You could be hyper-focusing on the logistics of a work function at the start of the week, given the moon’s ingress into Virgo and your 10th house of authority, reputation, and public persona. However, when considering the sun’s sextile to Uranus on March 6, this could also have something to do with a prominent parental figure or someone you personally look up to.
In any case, this full moon happening the next day will activate a T-Square between the sun in your fourth house of family and the moon in your 10th house of authority figures. Mars could charge things up in the area of your relationships, so be sure to take a breather before unintentionally lashing out at a significant other or business partner. Lastly this week, Venus’s sextile to Mars will supercharge your fifth house of autonomy and seventh house of committed partnerships on March 11, so don’t be afraid to set the record straight.
Capricorn (Dec. 22–Jan. 19) Weekly Horoscope For March 5, 2023

This is especially important to consider this week, as there will be a full moon in Virgo touching down on your ninth house of expansion, higher learning, and self-discovery. And with the sun’s sextile with Uranus on March 6, you could gain interesting insight while exploring one of your hobbies or finding a new source of inspiration entirely.
On March 7, the moon will peak via the methodical sign of Virgo, all while facing off with Mars in your sixth house of daily rituals, due diligence, and acts of service. Saturn will be entering your third house of communication and immediate surroundings, too, suggesting a potential mess when it comes to the logistics of your plans. Trust that if you’ve been lacking a sense of grounding in your immediate environment or in terms of your perspective, your taskmaster ruler, Saturn, is here to bring light to this situation.
Aquarius (Jan. 20–Feb. 18) Weekly Horoscope For March 5, 2023
It’s time to revisit some things, Aquarius. The week of March 5 begins with the moon entering Virgo and your eighth house of mergers, just days before the full moon in this area of your chart.

Mars will also be leading a T-Square between the sun and moon, which will shake your fifth house of passion projects and self-recognition. Your desire to be acknowledged and celebrated could be complicating things without you realizing. Take a closer look at the reality of the situation.
Pisces (Feb. 19–March 20) Weekly Horoscope For March 5, 2023
Meeting a significant other halfway could be somewhat of a foreign concept to you right now, so don’t overlook what’s being brought to your attention, Pisces. After all, with the sun, Mercury, and Neptune simultaneously transiting through your sign, you are more receptive to the universal undercurrents that surround you as opposed to the literal facts surrounding an important situation. In the meantime, the sun will harmonize with Uranus on March 6, which is where you are being enlightened with unexpected news, if not an intuitive download that catches you off guard.
Truth be told, when considering the full moon happening directly across from you in Virgo on March 7, this will more than likely revolve around the logistics of a marriage, partnership, or professional contract of sorts. However, with the ruler of this lunation, Mercury, in your sign, you are more likely to miss the point or choose to pass on something entirely. You may not be seeing things clearly, so make sure you’re staying grounded. Either way, Saturn is back in your sign for the first time since the early ’90s, so something is bound to be restructured in your personal life.
