March 8th Zodiac
Date: March 8th
In One Word: Victorious
Weakness: Loss of Control
Most Compatabile With: Virgo
March 8th carries an important message through its historical symbolism, as if it was to state that a fight for convictions will preserve feminine principles. In general, it isn't the equality of women and men it speaks of, but the equality of tenderness, emotion, and love, with active, masculine, and creative. Starting from a point of anger, people born on this date lean to discover tenderness within.
Mars and Jupiter combined always speak of some sort of missionaries and people who have a belief to fight for. Cooperation between these planets is empowering, but it can be a bit difficult in interaction with others if it is too fiery and direct. We will see that a person born on March 8th doesn't slow down and think often enough, and this could lead to hurtful experiences in their life. Their direction is defined by impulse and energy, and it is their mind that needs to keep them in control and focused on their own moral imperatives. This is a point of search for love that needs to be honest and fully productive or satisfaction won't be reached.
The second step of analysis shows that two strong individuals need to be brought to oneness and the battle they carry in their system will create problems that must be overcome in order to find peace.

From these two symbols, we can see that March 8th is all about performance, for it is a parade and something to show, that has a note of mystery added to it. The first symbol speaks of a celebration of a religious holiday, giving religion itself an important role in the way one is directed in life. The second symbol keeps things under a tent of mystery, that keeps out people who don't belong to the "village" or a social community of sorts. In general, both symbols speak of connecting between different people through religion and convictions, or fun and horizon widening.
When we speak of the direction each person born on March 8th will take, we need to keep in mind that their setpoint is always found in the depth of their own heart. Starting from certain family circumstances, it is their mission in life to find the truth of their own Soul, becoming truly gentle and loving towards the outer world, people in it, and their own existence. Self-acceptance is supposed to be found and light their way, and if any other motive starts pulling them forwards, they will feel the need to anesthetize their own dissatisfaction.
Love and Emotions
In the world of Pisces, love is always something that needs to be found, and along with it, inspiration, creative expression and feelings of childish joy. Individuals born on March 8th will allow their instincts to guide the way too many times. This could lead to some poor choices that damage their own emotional world. Their hearts are much more fragile than they are ready to allow them to be, and this creates an inner conflict, making them cross too many of their own boundaries in the attempt to compromise.
When they are set on their mission in life, love will come as a natural consequence, and they don't really need to look that far. Whatever it is that makes them feel fulfilled will bring the right kind of partnership into their life, and they will be the one to lead the way, using the unified strenght of the Two to make progress. Once love is found, it becomes an essential part of their being and their everyday life, and they will not settle until they discover the state of peace and home with someone close to their heart.
What They Excel In
Each person born on the 8th of March has something to fight for. This fact in itself will make them excel in all sorts of martial arts, and their best choices will get them in touch with the heart and joyful activities just the same. A very good choice for them would be capoeira or any form of acrobatic dancing. Some of them will find their true expression in religious teachings, or teaching of any kind, sharing their knowledge and life philosophy with the masses and anyone who comes into their life.
Sphalerite is the stone to give spiritual grounding to persons born on March 8th, helping them get rid of any form of exhaustion or fatigue.

Direction in life becomes clear with its use, as well as the steps leading a person to their final destination.
March 8th Birthday Gift
The most constructive gift for a person born on the 8th of March is always something to aid their currently chosen direction in life.

They want to learn, expand their horizons, and something to change their perspective. Give them a book with several endings or a puzzle that can be solved in more than one way. It is the mystery of tomorrow and everything that might be influenced by free will, that truly sparks their Piscean curiosity.
