New month, new adventures! We’re big believers in the power of fun to recharge our minds and bodies – and that means figuring out what works best for your mental and physical wellness each month. To help you match your much-needed dose of fun to your energies this March, we’ve teamed up with The Travel Insider to curate the best activities in Singapore for every sign, drawing on astrological analysis by SkyHoroscope. Here’s your guide to keeping entertained (plus some fab deals for UOB Cardmembers) this March.
With Venus entering Aries in late March, this fire sign will feel themselves growing in clarity and energy. You’ll find yourself better able to perceive your life journey with clear eyes, with old illusions falling away and sharpened intuition with regard to finances and new relationships. It’s a powerful time for personal transformation.
Astrological Adventure: Hop aboard a cable car to get panoramic views over Sentosa’s lush foliage and the glittering Singapore coastline. With Singapore Cable Car Sky Pass priced at 35% off for UOB Cardmembers, this sky-high ride offers an unparalleled bird’s-eye view of Singapore – an unusual perspective that’s sure to inspire you with new insights.
This month promises a wealth of fresh experiences for Taurus – you’ll have the potential to make huge strides in your mental development and relationships with loved ones. With emotions intensifying across the board though, you may also find yourself getting carried away by dark thoughts at times. Ward off the negativity with a healthy dose of exercise and meditation.
Astrological Adventure: A wellness getaway is just the ticket, and the newly revamped PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay fits the bill perfectly. This lush garden-in-a-hotel is home to over 2,000 plants, not to mention a mineral water swimming pool, a spin and yoga studio, and the St. Gregory spa – an oasis to recharge your body and mind. UOB Cardmembers can snag up to 25% off staycation rates here, along with dining discounts and breakfast for two.
With Mars exiting earthy, grounded Taurus and entering quick, dynamic Gemini, this March will bring a fresh breeze of new ideas and activities. Seize the chance by tapping into your new energy for self-realisation in both career and hobbies. This mercurial sign, though, should be careful of becoming overly restless – be sure not to physically strain yourself too much.
Astrological Adventure: For the right balance of thrills and chill vibes, how about a Sentosa Island Bus Tour? Take in the best sights of this sunny island in air-conditioned comfort on this two-hour guided tour, with UOB Cardmembers enjoying 35% off tickets. After your relaxing tour, it’s time to plunge into the many attractions Sentosa has to offer. Soar to new heights at iFly Singapore, one of the world’s largest indoor skydiving wind tunnels. Bounce and splash your way through aqua park HydroDash, then wind down with a sunset stroll along peaceful Palawan Beach.
Fatigue and burnout lurk at the start of March for Cancer, but you’ll find your second wind by the middle of the month. It’s a good month for self-care (though when is it ever not?). Carve out time in your hectic calendar to strengthen family bonds – it’s prime time to plan the trip or vacay you sorely deserve.
Astrological Adventure: Who says we can’t go road-tripping in our little red dot? Singapore has plenty of scenic driving routes that’ll make you feel like you’re on a family getaway. Start out in Singapore’s very own piece of countryside, Kranji, and make pitstops at rustic farms like Bollywood Veggies along the way. Meander around the Central Catchment area, skirting around its lush expanse of nature reserves, en route to Kampong Lorong Buangkok – Singapore’s last remaining kampong. As a UOB Cardmember, enjoy 10% discount on Hertz car rentals. Getting around with the whole fam is a breeze.
Ever the bold lion, Leo’s confidence and self-assurance will hit a peak this March. In the romance department, you’ll find yourself at a turning point, with a strengthened capacity to communicate and deepen connections. With such soaring energies, don’t forget to stay rooted in reality – immersing in nature is a good way to keep grounded.
Astrological Adventure: Make the most of your amorous energy with a couple’s getaway in the heart of nature. EU Asia Holidays’ 2D1N Southern Island Sailcation (S$796 per couple) is a scenic cruise that starts out from Sentosa Cove and takes you voyaging around the Southern Islands. Soak up the sun on the pristine sands of Lazarus Island, sit down to swoon-worthy sunset dinners, and be lulled to sleep by the wash of the waves.
With Uranus influencing this earth sign, Virgos are set for upheaval this March with plenty of new challenges and ideas opening up. It’s a busy month, thus all the more crucial not to leave your health by the wayside. The end of the month will see you more prone to intestinal problems, so be sure to get enough nutrition and fibre.
Astrological Adventure: It’s worth pressing pause on your busy-bee schedule to show both your stomach and soul some love.

Due to the influence of Mars on Libra, this month will be fraught with mood swings and anxious feelings. With dissatisfaction creeping into your inner life, you might fall prey to distraction and flare-ups. Work out your negative energy with regular doses of physical activity.
