Right as we flip to a new month in the calendar and begin to embrace the final weeks of the winter season, we’re being warmly greeted by a mystical new moon — and it’s here to bring our feelings to the forefront. Rising on March 2, the March 2022 new moon is all about connecting with our emotions and using them as a guide as we navigate the upcoming changes in our lives. Getting a feel for how the March 2022 new moon will affect your zodiac sign specifically can help you make the most of these lunar blessings.

March’s new moon takes place in water sign Pisces, and this sentimental energy is highlighting our sensitive sides and putting us in touch with our inner feelings. It’s a beautiful time to let our dreams and imaginations run wild, as Pisces’ transcendental vibe loves to get lost in a fantasy. This new moon brings Pisces season to a peak, and its mutable zodiac energy inspires us to stay open to change. Give yourself a chance to get introspective and embrace the ever-evolving desires of your inner self.

Additionally, the sun and moon will be cozying up to lucky planet Jupiter as the new moon peaks, which amplifies the emotional depth of this lunation and infuses it with a sense of hope, expansion, and growth. The Jupiterian influence also makes this lunation an auspicious opportunity for manifesting more abundance in our lives and thinking more positively about our goals. It’s time to get spiritual, listen to your emotions, and set some dreamy intentions — because this new moon is offering us a fruitful fresh start.

This new moon is asking you to silence your inner critic and set your inner dreamer free, Cancer. Embrace the idea that anything you hope for is possible and allow yourself to explore your fantasies without constraint.

The emotional energy of this watery lunation is striking a deep chord within your heart, Leo, so stop trying to swallow your feelings. Immerse yourself in your emotions and allow yourself to be vulnerable now. By facing your truth and baring your soul, you’ll be able to move forward more authentically and work through some of the issues that have kept you from shining.

If Your Zodiac Sign Is Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)

Margaret Flatley/Bustle

You’re embarking on a powerful new beginning when it comes to relationships, Virgo, so allow your feelings to take the driver’s seat and see where they take you. An emotional and spiritual connection is an important part of romantic compatibility — so instead of simply trying to make a match add up on paper, check in with your heart and see how things total out there. That’s where the real answers lie.

If Your Zodiac Sign Is Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)

Margaret Flatley/Bustle

Your tendency to jam-pack your schedule with social outings, work projects, and personal obligations can sometimes leave very little time for you, Libra — so this new moon is asking you to figure out ways to bring some self-care into your everyday routine. Having adequate time for sleep, spirituality, and a little bit of pampering will boost your overall wellness and help you feel more whole.

If Your Zodiac Sign Is Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)

Margaret Flatley/Bustle

Thanks to the new moon in a fellow water sign, you’re being flooded with romantic fantasies and creative inspiration — and it’s time to start acting on these visions! A flirty fling or a fresh passion project could make its way into your purview now, so follow your heart and allow your playful side to make some decisions. Having fun is serious business, Scorpio, so make it a priority.

If Your Zodiac Sign Is Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)

Margaret Flatley/Bustle

This new moon is fully cracking your heart open, Sagittarius, so don’t be surprised if you feel more sentimental, vulnerable, and nostalgic than usual. You’re turning over a new leaf when it comes to dealing with emotional issues and working through past heartaches, so take advantage of this an auspicious growth point. Let bygones be bygones so you can create closer bonds with your friends and family members.

If Your Zodiac Sign Is Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)

Margaret Flatley/Bustle

The sentimental energy of this new moon is bringing you a chance to connect with the people around you on a more emotional level, Capricorn — which is refreshing for someone who’s usually so stoic. It’s a great time to open up about your feelings and talk through the things that are weighing on your heart. By commiserating with others, you’ll realize that you’re never alone, no matter how heavy things may feel sometimes.

If Your Zodiac Sign Is Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)

Margaret Flatley/Bustle

Getting in touch with our feelings isn’t always easy, but this sensitive new moon is challenging us to do exactly that. Instead of trying intellectualize things, get yourself grounded under by focusing on the energy in your body. Are you feeling tense or relaxed? Do you feel tingles of excitement or flutters of anxiety? Learning how to interpret the subtle signals and sensations in your body will strengthen your emotional awareness, so feel into it.

If Your Zodiac Sign Is Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)

Margaret Flatley/Bustle

This is an extra special lunation for you, Pisces, as the luminaries are aligning with Jupiter — your traditional planetary ruler — and bringing a magical burst of luck to your new moon intentions. Your identity is evolving now, so you may feel inspired to head down a new path or turn over an entirely new leaf. Follow your heart and embrace the changes taking place within you. Being authentic is always in style.
