She was Born in March

In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb

There are 31 days to enjoy the traits of March. March is home to St. Patrick’s day and oh, the Ides of March. It is a rough and tumble month as winter loses its grip on the Northern Hemisphere and spring snatches the month away on the March Equinox. This month is ruled by Mars, the god of war, and it is the first month of the Roman calendar. Mars was the guardian of agriculture and father to those famous twins: Romulus and Remus. We see seasons changing, crops being readied, flowers starting to fight their way to the surface under ice and the season of change starting.

The Personality:

She is affectionate. She is shy and reserved. She is sensitive to others and loves peace and harmony. She is a natural leader and teacher. She can be a perfectionist, but that makes her a great philosopher. She is an artist with a love of all that is holistic. She is drawn to the medical profession, and she is very good at it. Her powers of observation and assessment give her the ability to succeed in medicine and research. She loves to travel, and she has a tendency to dream and fantasize. She is musically talented.

She is honest with a generous spirit that can cause her great guilt. She can be moody, but she is extremely intuitive, so she may be simply observing.

The Signs:
Pisces and Aries: Twin fish and the Ram

March children are ruled by Neptune, god of the sea. The Aquamarine is naturally a stone colored as the ocean. This stone presents courage and friendship. It is the stone of faithfulness. Aquamarines are said to cure throat issues, and it is the stone of communication. It is believed to open awareness and ease tensions.

While it is normally a seafoam green or blue, it can be found in a sky blue, which is the color found in most jewelry.

"A March born shall always be
Soothed by Aqua, gem of sea
This mermaid's treasured stone you wear
Will bring happiness, love, affection and care."

As the tiny plants start to unfurl under the ice and snow, bulb flowers are starting to shove their way upward. The beautiful and intricate daffodil is the flower of the March babies. In some climates, they are the first flowers that give us the first sign of spring.

The Color:

Aqua is the color of those who call March their month.
