“If March comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb” — a weather proverb that means if the month starts off stormy, it will end with mild weather.
In a different interpretation, the constellation Leo, the lion, rises in the east at the beginning of March and thus the month “comes in like a lion,” while Aries, the ram, sets in the west at the end of the month, and hence, the month “will go out like a lamb.”
Note that this doesn’t make Leo a March Zodiac sign.
After a long cold winter, March brings those in the northern hemisphere the promise of longer and warmer days.
If you have read about January and February birth months, March may not seem as exciting as these months, but that doesn’t make them any less special. In fact, here is the good news, March is a spring month, and babies born during this season have interesting temperaments and are exceptionally positive-minded and optimistic.
If you are expecting your baby in March, you are in safe hands because March babies possess incredible traits that set them apart from their peers.
In this post, you are going to learn about what March birthdays have to say about your baby, including the unique personality and traits that make them really awesome kids.
March Zodiac Sign
People born in March are either Pisces or Aries. March birthday babies whose dates fall between March 1 and 20 are under the Pisces Zodiac. Those whose dates are from 21 till the end of the month share the Aries Zodiac.
As the first sign in the month of March, Pisces is a mutable water sign ruled by Neptune, the planet of creativity and dreams. This is why Pisces is super inclined in arts and magical thinking. Jupiter as the second ruling planet is in charge of abundance and generosity, granting Pisces the gift of empathy and emotional understanding. The Pisces symbol is represented by two fishes facing opposite directions; a reflection of their ambivalent nature.
The second Zodiac sign in the month of March is Aries — a cardinal fire sign that is ruled by Mars, the planet of war, desire, and competition. The Aries astrological symbol is represented by the ram constellation whose horns symbolize virility and aggression, as well as the “head-on” approach that Aries take to problem-solving.
Together, these two Zodiacs make up the awesome March birthday personality. We are going to learn about their shared personalities in order to understand their collective contribution to making March a wholesome month to be born in.
March Born Personality
As the third month of the year, March is often thought of as the beginning of spring, granting the people born in this month a lot of protective benefits.
As it turns out, babies born during the spring season have a little extra something going for them. Sunnier skies lead to sunnier dispositions, and that is not all. If your baby arrived in the months after the vernal equinox (or you’re due at that time), you can expect some really special characteristics.
These characteristics include health-related attributes like lower allergy rates, fewer respiratory infections, and a lower rate of neurological disorders.
March-born babies are warm and passionate and have a way of lighting up any room they are in with their cheerful disposition. Their creativity levels up to none other as the prominent sign in March is known to hold the greatest artists and creatives of all the Zodiac.
March, the month of spring, goes hand in hand with optimism. People born in this month can be optimistic about almost everything. Although this, unfortunately, can leave them vulnerable to depression if things don’t work out as they wish.

March Birthday Facts
Below are 8 fun facts you should know about your March birthday baby
Your Baby has two birthstones
March birthstones are Aquamarine and Bloodstone. Aquamarine is the color of the sea that symbolize purity of spirit and soul, because of their association with crystal-clear water. Alternatively, Bloodstones are deep green stones with red flecks and are said to bring health and strength to the wearer.
Your baby’s birth flower is a daffodil
Since the daffodil is one of the first spring flowers, it is a little surprising why it is your March baby’s birth flower. Spring is the season when these cheerful yellow flowers bloom beautifully, bringing forth new beginnings, rebirth, and prosperity.
Your baby will swim in an ocean of good health
A study by Columbia University concluded that those born during the month of March tend to be associated with decreased disease risk.
Your baby may not live up to 100
If good health guarantees long life, then all spring babies would live to be centenarians. But unfortunately, it doesn’t.
Your baby may stand taller than their peers
A study out of Austria found that babies born in spring tend to be taller than others — April babies were the tallest yet. Researchers believe it has to do with the amount of light-dependent melatonin women are exposed to during pregnancy.
Your baby will stay up late at night
Say hello to the newest night owl in the house. According to one sleep study, kids born during spring and summer are more likely to stay up later than winter and fall babies.
Your baby will be super creative
A study by the University of Connecticut suggests that kids born during wet months (late December through early March) are more likely to be creative.
Your baby might have fewer allergies
This is one of the many health benefits of being a spring baby. Your baby is less likely to develop allergies and respiratory infections if they are born during this season. This may (or may not) have to do with the fact that they were born in a season full of pollen and allergens and so they learn to deal with these very early on.
