March, Marion (1923-)

Marion March, an outstanding American astrology teacher, was born on February 10, 1923, in Nürnberg, Germany, though she was raised in Switzerland, the daughter of a banker. She moved to the United States during World War II (1939-45) to pursue an acting career, but after six years joined the American Foreign Service. Stationed in her homeland, she met her husband, a graduate student and future executive with Merrill Lynch. They settled in Los Angeles, California, and she became the mother of two children.

March did not begin the study of astrology until 1965 and did not become a professional until 1970. However, she was quickly recognized as an accomplished astrologer and a talented instructor. She developed a large clientele, and as she could speak five languages, she was called upon to lecture across North America and Europe. She was asked to join the faculty of the American Federation of Astrologers, the International Society for Astrological Research, and the Southwest Astrology Council. She has been active in both the European International Congress and United Astrology Congress. She was one of the founders of the Association for Astrological Networking.

In 1975, March joined forces with Joan McEvers to found Aquarius Workshops, the vehicle for their teaching activity. Their magazine, Aspects, soon became one of the most popular in the field, and their multivolume textbook series, The Only Way toLearn Astrology, one of the most used textbooks for teaching astrology to newcomers to the field. In addition, she has written numerous articles for the many journals serving astrologers.

March has received a variety of honors for her contributions to the field, including the highly prized Regulus Award in 1972 for service to the astrological community. She received the award again in 1989 (along with McEvers) for her educational activities.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
