March is the month of Vernal equinox.
It is often said that on this day the day and night are of equal duration. But that is not so.

Venus’ appearance above the western horizon for this season will be over in March 2017. It will be in inferior conjunction, i.e. between the Sun and the Earth on 25th of March. As the planet is coming towards us, it’s angular size is increasing. On 1st Venus will be 46.7″ and by about mid March it will increase by about 10 arch seconds. On 15th it will be 56.7″.
Movement of the Planets in constellations
Mercury – moves from Aquarius to Pisces on 11th and remains there for the rest of the month except for couple of hours when it passes through Cetus on 17th. Note Cetus is not a zodiacal constellation. Superior conjunction of Mercury takes place on 7th. If we could see the planet then we would find it just within 1° 40′ of the Sun but on the farther side.
Venus – is in Pisces all through this month. Again just for couple of hours it enters the boundary of Pegasus on 29th of March. Inferior conjunction of Venus takes place on 25th of March. It will be about 8° 17′ from the sun.
Mars – is in Pisces too and moves to Aries on 8th and remains there for the rest of the month.
Jupiter – is in Virgo this month
Saturn – is in Sagittarius this month
