March Lore and General Info:

Astronomical Events

Astrological Events

Depending on which astrological system you adhere to, these are the signs that show up in March of 2022. Be aware that some of these dates will vary from year to year. Unlike the Sun signs which might just shift by 1 or 2 days, the dates of the various Moon signs will vary widely from year to year. The same holds true for the Chinese Zodiac. The Celtic Tree Signs are based on an arbitrary system and stay the same from year to year.

The Chinese Calendar and Zodiac

We are currently in the year of the Black Water Tiger.  Each Month is also assigned a specific animal. Here’s what shows up in March 2022.

  • Tiger: Feb 4 –  Mar 4 (Chinese Zodiac)
  • Tiger: Feb 1 – Mar 2 (Lunar Calendar – 1st Lunar Month)
  • Rabbit: Mar 5 – Apr 4 (Chinese Zodiac)
  • Rabbit: Mar 3 –  Mar 31 (Lunar Calendar – 2nd Lunar Month)

Note: The traditional Chinese Astrology birth chart is built by the Chinese Stem Branch Calendar, not the Chinese Lunar Calendar, which I think is really confusing.  Because of a difference in time zones, the lunar months will have different pattern between China and the USA.
