The month of March is the 3rd month of the Julian and Gregorian Calendars but was originally the first month of the Roman calendar year, called Martius named for Mars, one of the most important Gods of the Roman state.


In witchcraft, March is often associated with themes of rebirth, renewal, and transition.

As the month marks the arrival of spring in the Northern Hemisphere, it symbolizes the awakening of the earth from its winter slumber and the emergence of new life.

Witches may celebrate March with rituals and spells focused on growth, fertility, and cleansing, harnessing the energy of the season to bring positive changes into their lives.

Additionally, March is a time for honoring deities associated with spring, such as Persephone, Demeter, and Ostara, and for connecting with the natural world through outdoor activities like gardening and nature walks.

Magickal Practices in March

Spring Equinox RitualsWitches often perform rituals to celebrate the arrival of spring and honor the balance between light and dark. This may include outdoor ceremonies, planting seeds, or decorating altars with symbols of fertility and renewal.
Egg MagicEggs are symbols of fertility and new life, making them potent tools for spellwork in March. Witches may use eggs in rituals for growth, abundance, and protection, or incorporate them into divination practices.
Cleansing and RenewalMarch is a time for cleansing and renewal, both physically and spiritually. Witches may perform rituals to cleanse their homes, bodies, and energy fields, releasing stagnant energy and making space for new beginnings.

Weather Lore

When March comes in like a lion, it goes out like a lamb
(But Leo rises in the East when March begins and Aries sets in the West as it ends.)

So many mists in March you see, So many frosts in May will be.

A wet March, a wet spring

As it rains in March, so it shall in June

A dry March and a wet May fill the barns with corn and hay.
