Feeling a need to transcend the everyday realities? Overdue for a physical, emotional or spiritual tune-up? The Sun is now in PISCES, illuminating the need for retreat, introspection & healing. Take some time out from your daily routine, turn your attention inward and listen closely to the wisdom of your inner mystic — meditate, contemplate and allow your imagination to soar to new heights. Lift your vibration to a higher level!
Pay close attention to your dreams, as they may be particularly revealing this month. Tune in to your fantasies and visualize your life just the way you want it to be. Consult your favorite oracles for insights and guidance: pull out your Tarot deck, animal cards, the Runes or your pendulum — or visit an astrologer, psychic or intuitive counselor.
Since Neptune—ruling planet of PISCES—is currently in PISCES (along with the Sun & Jupiter), this astrological month could be an especially spacey one. The escape urge—the dark side of the PISCES nature—will be much stronger than usual. It can take on many forms, such as wallowing in alcohol, drugs, food, illness, overwork, self-pity, submersion into others’ problems, or being glued to the TV. Chaos, confusion, self-deception, masochism, paranoia or delusions can run rampant unless held in check. Do everything you can to channel this energy in a healthy, life-affirming way — keep your grip on reality, practice mindfulness and take the high road!How sweet it is that the Sun‘s entrance into PISCES on February 18 falls at the beginning of the President’s Day holiday! Aside from sleeping in and tuning out, it could be the perfect weekend to visit the ocean or hot springs, take a spa day and treat yourself to an herbal wrap, steam, sauna, massage or foot reflexology treatment.
You will likely experience a spiritual uplift with the imaginative Mars-Neptune sextile on February 23, followed by the mystical Venus-Neptune sextile on the 24th. Stretch, soak in the tub, meditate, listen to music or lend a helping hand to someone less fortunate than yourself! With the edgy Mercury-Uranus square also on the same day, do something to change up the energy and your attitude. Consider alternative approaches to your everyday routines!
With both Mars and Venus making a trine to the North Lunar Node on February 28, you could find yourself at the right place at the right time (and with the right people). Take a moment to tune in to where you need to be. Put some energy into stabilizing your domestic scene and personal support systems; it could be a good time to apply for a loan, refinance, resolve any outstanding financial obligations or add some beauty & harmony to your home..
March begins with the sparkling Sun-Uranus sextile on the 1st — be on the alert for surprises & miracles in your work and home environment, as well as with health matters. Exp[lore new software, fancy technology or out-of-the-ordinary solutions. The serious Mercury-Saturn conjunction, on March 2, could help you manifest more innovative ways of getting things done. Commit to progress!The New Moon in PISCES falls on March 2 at 9:35 am PST — let the healing begin! Along with your spiritual, mental & emotional health, your physical health is of primary importance this month. PISCES (a mutable water sign) is associated with the feet, the pineal gland and the lymphatic system, making this month an ideal time for a detox, cleanse or fast. Boost your immune system with vitamins & minerals, supplements, aromatherapy oils, homeopathics & flower essences; exercise, do yoga, catch up on your sleep and drink lots of water. It might be the time to see your doctor, clear up any health issues, do some volunteer work or just have a good cry. Hugging a pet could also be very helpful!
A creative, inspirational energy energy can erupt to the surface as both Venus & Mars make a stimulating conjunction to Pluto on March 3. It’s a wonderful time to get new things off the ground, make romantic & social connections and express your playful side! Sing, dance, paint, draw, write poetry or get out your instruments. Allow your Dionysian side to come out of hiding — let music, essential oils or exotic substances transport you to states of ecstasy. Surrender to your higher self and elevate your mood & your spirits!
Cupid may touch your heart as Venus and Mars enter unconventional AQUARIUS together—late in the evening—on March 5. These two lovebirds have been aligned in serious CAPRICORN for the past month, and will be in an exact conjunction as they change signs. . . from earth to air signs. Over the next few weeks, whatever has been mundane can become magical, and whatever has been heavy or restricting will be liberated. It’s out with the old, in with the new! You will sense a social sparkle in the air, and will likely feel a strong urge to team up with those who share similar ideals and objectives.
The exuberant Sun-Jupiter conjunction, also on the 5th, will add a spirit of optimism, adventure and expansiveness to the mix. Think big, aim high and seek the truth (but be mindful of taking on more than you can handle). You may want to make some travel plans, take a class or workshop, start a writing project or join an exercise program. Stretch your legs, open your mind and extend your vistas!
Life could be a little topsy-turvy as Mercury comes to the end of its erratic transit through AQUARIUS and squares the Lunar Nodes on March 6. Expect the unexpected, especially when it comes to timing and details — your best-laid plans could be turned upside-down! On the evening of March 9, Mercury moves on to mystical PISCES. While you may see things through rose-colored glasses with this planetary position, you will also have the ability to see the best in others. It can be a time for selfless service and random acts of kindness. Be forgiving and compassionate with yourself and others.
Since the sign PISCES is associated with empathy, charity, devotion & sacrifice, the light will shine this month on minorities, immigrants, refugees, victims of abuse, lost souls and helpless creatures. Contribute whatever you can to improving the lives of those who are suffering, but avoid taking on their pain in the process. As Joseph Campbell says, “We cannot cure the world of sorrows, but we can choose to live in joy.”
You can expect a spacey, even surreal, day with the dreamy Sun-Neptune conjunction on March 13 (don’t forget to turn your clock forward the night before). It’s time to spring forward with Daylight Savings Time! While it will appear that you’re losing an hour, consider that you’re actually gaining an extra hour of daylight!
The Full Moon in PISCES & VIRGO comes to a head on March 18 at 12:18 am PDT. A clarifying light will be shed on whatever needs to be healed, fixed or resolved! If health or job challenges interfere with your plans, just roll with the punches and go with the flow. The invigorating Sun-Pluto sextile accompanies this Full Moon, providing you with an impetus to move forward with new hobbies, projects, business ventures or romantic adventures! Get off the beaten path as the the unpredictable Venus-Uranus square unleashes on March 19 — be prepared for changes, interruptions, separations or unexpected social activity. Stay spontaneous and open to whatever may happen!!
Utilize the PISCES month to rinse off the residues of winter and prepare yourself for the vibrant new energy that’s ready to spring forth. A new season of revitalization and rebirth is just around the corner!
PS HAPPY BIRTHDAY & SOLAR RETURN to my sensitive, compassionate PISCES friends!
