The Sun transiting through the mystical water sign Pisces brings a more intuitive, imaginary, and fluid energy. The compassionate Piscean energies take to the forefront during the Sun’s trek through the last sign of the 12 sign celestial zodiac. Another year is completed this cycle. We can enjoy the ever-present perhaps nebulous energy of this sign since Neptune rules Pisces, it creates and inspires the field for a more receptive yet vague sense of time. The Sun starts its yearly transit through the fire sign Aries March 20th as we begin a new cycle at the Vernal Equinox and the earth awakens for new growth as spring commences.
Pisces Sun sign natives are often kind, sympathetic, receptive, intuitive and humble folks to encounter. They can be only understood through compassion, intuition, and understanding. They favor caring, sympathy and mutuality in their relationships. They are like the music that inspires them, flowing, changing and at times vague. As a water sign, Pisces cannot be understood through logic, analysis or pressure. They often like to offer help to their friends and family with an amount of compassion. They can be chameleon-like and may assume the opinions and moods of whomever they are with at a particular time. They may drift in and out of situations as they are moody and can range from levels of ecstasy to the depths of despair. They are protective, as all water signs are, of their inner sensitivity; this may appear like they are indifferent at times this is how they censor the impressions from others. These very psychic folks are full of good intentions and are happiest if they are enjoying music, the arts, or making money to secure their footing as they may not like to face the harsher realities of life. They secure their ability to make money in order to someday enjoy their life. They are multi-talented and have interests in diverse sidelines, sports, fishing, diving, dancing, poetry, music, film, spiritualism, and Yoga, to name a few. Happy Birthday Pisces, Neptune your ruler and Jupiter in Scorpio have been making aspects to your Sun, this can enhance your perceptions of a more spiritual reality and help you expand your interests.
The Planetary Transits for March
1st week- March 1, the Full Moon in the practical analytical earth sign Virgo opposite the Sun in Pisces. Brings greater inner illumination mixed with practical results. Venus in Pisces trines Jupiter in Scorpio, both benefices increase our intuitive sense of values and desires for expansion. We can find inspiration and imagination. Both help us to lift up our energies. This is a good time for creativity and productivity.
2nd week-March 5th, Mercury and Venus shift into the fire sign Aries, quickening and charging up our ideas, networking and relationships with passion, Jupiter turns retrograde in Scorpio for the next 5 months until mid- July, this transit can help strengthen our inner growth and sense of spiritual values. Wealth and expansion of resources may experience a delay; watch as Jupiter controls wealth, fortune and luck all under a new circumspection. The Last Quarter Moon in the fire sign Sagittarius finishes this lunar cycle. Perhaps new enthusiasm and many directions are explored today. However, it is a good time to choose which ones to explore and which to put on a shelf for a later time.
3rd week- March 12th, Venus squares Saturn making a time of decisions, Sun trines Jupiter, adding hope, faith, and confidence to this mid-week, The New Moon in Pisces on March 17th starts the new lunar cycle of growth, perhaps a lot of imagination and power to perform as Mars transits into the ambitious earth sign Capricorn increasing the energy for movement and efficacy to our actions.
4th week- March 19th, Vernal Equinox on March 20th the Sun shifts into the fire sign Aries, increasing the light starting the spring process in the northern hemisphere. The “Light” returns for yet another annual cycle of the four seasons. This is a good day to go out and check for the signs of spring and clean up the gardens. Spring does charge up all our energies as this is a good time to diet and cleanse and enjoy the revitalizing energy of the Sun’s return. Mercury will turn retrograde on March 22nd in the fire sign Aries, until April 15th. During this retrograde phase, you may go over your projects and finish up those that were set aside. Watch for schedule changes, pace yourself and be patient in all things. Mercury connects the dots so things don’t often work right during this time, if they are going to break they will and you can fix things up, possibly without a good amount of frustration. Contracts and computers can give problems. So be aware of the fine print as things can get omitted by mistake. This is a good time for research and creative brainstorming. The First Quarter Moon in the emotional sensitive water sign Cancer on March 24th ushers in ideas and concerns for developing new growth and as Saturn opposes the Moon we can expect to identify those areas of limitations for our desired security.
5th week- March 26th, Venus conjuncts Uranus in Aries this week and can bring in unexpected flashes of intuition and inspiration to our values as we move to create more transformative forms for energy and resources. The Full Moon in the harmony and balance minded air sign Libra attunes us to the spirit of cooperation in relationships. Venus shifts into the practical security minded earth sign Taurus and this is a good weekend for the love of recreation and perhaps indulgences. Go out, enjoy and appreciate this precious time on earth.
The Moon’s Nodes are transiting through Leo/Aquarius bringing in the dynamics of the individual’s creativity to move alone versus the past times of friendships and collective ideas. It’s for the individual to answer the questions which arise in the house they are transiting through. Like; where do I fit in and where is my community? How do I pour my individual contribution to the whole? The search is on for these questions to be answered. If the transiting nodes cross any of the four points in your chart you will feel this influence more prominently. The nodes crossing the Ascendant/Descendant or the Mid-heaven and 4th house cusp can bring about changes that are life-changing.
As always the planetary cycles incline us to evolve and make our choices.
Peace and Blessings
