Dayboro March 2024 – Aries
March in Dayboro typically starts to show signs of the approaching autumn, with temperatures slightly cooler than February but still relatively warm. The average temperatures are expected to be around the mid-20s°C. With the ongoing moderate solar activity and current planetary alignments, including the positions of Mars and Jupiter, we can anticipate average high temperatures to be in the high-20s to low-30s Celsius. Average low temperatures might range in the mid to high-teens Celsius.
The influence of the lunar cycle, transitioning through different phases in March, may contribute to subtle climatic variations. The waxing moon phases early in the month might be associated with increased atmospheric moisture, potentially leading to sporadic late summer storms.
Average Temperature for March 2024
Consistent with Dayboro’s humid subtropical climate, the temperatures in March 2024 are expected to be slightly above the historic average for this time of the year. Dayboro should experience warm days followed by pleasant and balmy evenings. The planetary alignments, particularly involving Mars and Jupiter, suggest potential fluctuations in daily temperatures, which could lead to a mix of warm and cooler days throughout the month.
In March, as Dayboro transitions from summer to autumn, wind patterns are likely to shift. While we may see a decrease from the higher wind speeds of the summer months, March winds in Dayboro can still play a significant role in weather development.
Early March: The beginning of the month might experience moderate to occasionally strong winds, influenced partly by the waxing crescent phase of the moon and the alignments of planets like Venus and Mars. These winds could contribute to cooler evening temperatures and may play a role in any developing weather system.
Mid-March: Around the full moon phase, from March 15th to 21st, wind speeds could increase, potentially leading to more dynamic weather conditions. This period may see gustier winds, influenced by the combined effects of the lunar phase and planetary positions, including Jupiter and Mercury.
Late March: As the month progresses and the moon wanes, the wind speeds are likely to decrease. However, with the planetary alignment involving Saturn during this phase, there might still be episodes of breezy conditions.
For March 2024, the lunar phases and planetary alignments suggest a continued pattern of increased atmospheric moisture. This is particularly notable during the phases of the waxing moon early in the month, which typically correlate with heightened precipitation levels.
Given Dayboro’s climatic trends and the expected planetary alignments, including the positions of key planets like Mars and Jupiter, March may experience higher than average rainfall, characteristic of the region’s wet season. This could be accentuated around the time of the full moon, which often brings more intense weather patterns.
Moreover, March is a time when we transition from summer to autumn, a period that has historically seen varied weather patterns. The forecast, therefore, indicates the possibility of significant rainfall events. With Dayboro’s topography and historical weather events in mind, there is a potential risk of flooding, especially in low-lying or historically prone areas. These events are more likely to occur in the first half of the month, aligning with the waxing to full moon phases and the anticipated planetary configurations.
Possible Rain days
POSSIBLE RAIN DAYS
Early March (Waxing Crescent to First Quarter Phase):
- March 1st to 7th: The Waxing Crescent phase, coupled with significant planetary alignments, particularly involving Mars and Venus, may increase the likelihood of rainfall. This period could be marked by sporadic showers.
Mid-March (First Quarter to Waxing Gibbous Phase):
- March 8th to 14th: As the moon progresses through its waxing phases, the potential for rain continues. Planetary positions, including those of Mercury and Jupiter, might contribute to this sustained likelihood of precipitation.
- March 15th to 21st (Full Moon): The period around the full moon typically sees a peak in weather activity. There’s a heightened probability of significant rainfall events during these days, potentially intensified by the influence of Mars and Jupiter.
Late March (Waning Gibbous to Last Quarter Phase):
- March 22nd to 31st: With the moon entering its waning phases, there’s generally a reduced likelihood of rain. However, given the specific planetary alignments this month, particularly involving Saturn, occasional showers or unpredictable weather patterns may still occur.
Astrological & Solar
Solar Activity: Depending on the phase of the solar cycle, March 2024 could experience varying levels of solar activity. This might include sunspots and solar flares, which can have subtle impacts on Earth’s weather, such as influencing atmospheric conditions.
Planetary Positions: The positions and alignments of planets can be considered in long-term weather forecasting. Certain alignments, especially involving larger planets like Jupiter and Saturn, are sometimes thought to correlate with weather patterns on Earth.
Lunar Phases: The lunar cycle is also a traditional component in some long-term weather forecasting methodologies. Phases of the moon, particularly the new moon and full moon, are often considered when predicting weather trends, including potential changes in precipitation and atmospheric pressure.

- Root Vegetables: Beets (both baby and full size), Carrot, Daikon, and Turnips are good choices for March planting. They generally have a shorter growth cycle of 4-12 weeks (except for full-size beets, which take 6-8 weeks).
- Leafy Vegetables: Bok choy, Broccoli, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Celery, Endive, Kohlrabi, Lettuce, Mizuna, Mustard greens, Silverbeet, Spinach, Swiss chard, and Rocket are suitable for planting in March. These have varying harvest times from 4-6 weeks to a few months.
- Legumes: Broad beans, Peas (snow and sugar snap) can be planted in March, typically harvested in 6-8 weeks.
- Bulb Vegetables: Garlic (cloves), Onion (bulb), and Shallot are also suitable for March planting, with a longer growth period of several months.
- Feijoa: Plant in March for a harvest in 4-6 months. Tolerant of varying conditions.
- Grapes (Late Varieties): Suitable for planting in March with a harvest time of 4-6 months.
- Kiwifruit: Start planting in March; expect a harvest in 6-8 months.
- Orange: Ideal to plant in March, with a 6-8 month maturation period.
- Pawpaw: Plant in March for a harvest in the same year.

- Parsley: Suitable for March planting with an ongoing harvest.
Mercury-Neptune Conjunction (March 9, 2024): This conjunction may be interpreted as a favourable time for planting crops that benefit from strong root development. Mercury is often associated with communication and movement, while Neptune relates to moisture and intuition. Planting during this period may be beneficial for crops requiring more water or for starting seedlings that need careful nurturing.
Venus-Saturn Conjunction (March 22, 2024): Venus is associated with growth and fertility, while Saturn is linked to structure and discipline. This conjunction could be seen as a favourable time to plant crops that require a longer growing period and benefit from steady, structured growth. It could be a good time to plant perennials or biennials that require more time to mature.
General Planetary Influences
Mars and Jupiter: Their positions in March suggest potential fluctuations in daily temperatures. Plants that are adaptable to temperature variations or that can thrive in a range of conditions may do well if planted during this time.
Saturn: Its influence later in the month might suggest planting crops that require steady, gradual growth and can withstand cooler temperatures as the season transitions from summer to autumn.
Lunar Phase Consideration
Aligning planting activities with the lunar cycle is a fundamental aspect of biodynamic farming. For example:
- Planting leafy crops during the waxing moon (leading up to the first quarter) is believed to benefit growth, as this phase is associated with increasing moisture and light.
- Root crops may be favoured during the waning moon phase, as energy is believed to be drawn down into the soil.
- Moisture Management: Given the higher rainfall, ensure good drainage to prevent waterlogging.
- Wind Protection: For wind-sensitive plants, consider protective measures like windbreaks.
- Lunar Planting: Align planting activities with the lunar cycle for optimal growth, especially considering the waxing moon early in the month.
