ABOUT MARCH 2024

March, the third month of the Gregorian calendar (established in 1582 with Pope Gregory XIII), heralds the transition from winter to spring in the Northern Hemisphere and summer into fall in the Southern Hemisphere. The month's namesake is the Roman god of war, Mars. In ancient times, wars often paused during winter and resumed with spring thaw. This association reflects the ancient Roman calendar when March was originally the first month, marking the start of a new year and the season for military campaigning.

The history of March as a time for new beginnings is rooted in its positioning as the start of the Roman calendar year. During this month, Roman citizens would celebrate the new year with festivals and the honor of Mars, including the Feriae Marti, the festival of Mars, suggesting the regenerative aspects of springtime and the military campaigns that often commenced as the weather improved. Today, March is the month that marks the new year for several cultures, including the Persians, Sikhs, Hindus, and Buddhists.

ASTROLOGY

March 1-20 fall under the water sign Pisces. March 21-31 are under the fire sign of Aries.

BIRTHSTONES

March has two birthstones: the aquamarine and the bloodstone. With its sea-water-like color, aquamarine symbolizes serenity, clarity, and harmony, reflecting the soothing nature of its namesake, the sea. The bloodstone, a dark green stone speckled with vivid red spots of iron oxide, is associated with strength, health, and the invigorating force of life

FLOWERS

The flower traditionally associated with March is the daffodil (jonquil). This yellow, trumpet-shaped flower symbolizes chivalry, rebirth, and new beginnings, which is fitting as it is one of the first perennials to bloom after the winter frost. The daffodil is linked to the arrival of spring in various festivals worldwide. It is also the symbol for the Coast Guard in the United Kingdom

LEGENDS

Folklore and legends surrounding March include St. Patrick's Day on March 17th, a cultural and religious celebration honoring St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. According to legend, St. Patrick used the three-leaved shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity, a ubiquitous symbol of the holiday and Irish culture

Another widely observed tradition is the March equinox, which occurs around March 20th or 21st, marking the moment the sun crosses the celestial equator. Many cultures recognize this event with fertility, rejuvenation, and rebirth celebrations. Ancient rites and customs during this period often involve themes of balance and the cyclical nature of life, with feasts, dances, and rituals that welcome spring.
