May the month of March guide you toward your new path. Even if you’re well ensconced on your journey, you get the opportunity every spring to unfurl your life toward its purpose. For those of us who are truly starting over, this spring provides the impetus to take the lessons of the past, Pisces, in a leap toward the next unfolding (Aries).
Consciousness increases as pressures intensify. I’m speaking of Russia invading Ukraine as well as the general stress we all feel, every day. The increased pressure is squeezing us toward the tipping point where common sense overcomes power for power’s sake.
Notice this within yourself. Notice how your thoughts churn, holding onto grudges and shame. Then notice how your spirit yearns to lift you above that treadmill. You have a great deal of help to do exactly that. Wise Jupiter travels through Pisces, for the first time in 12 years no less, and spiritual assistance and insight is easily available. All we have to do is let go of our end of the story.
I’m referring to the victim story. “Poor me. You started it. You made me feel…I never said that.” Spirit asks that we simply let go and start fresh. This is what our beautiful planet is doing: her dawning consciousness involves letting go of the injuries she’s sustained at our hands as many, many species die. Earth is alive in her pain and turns to focus on her rebirth. We too must focus on our death and rebirth. On what our lives can look like without our self-loathing.
For inspiration, look at the life of Mrs. Fannie Lou Hamer who spoke directly to the heart of truth, with no equivocation. What an orator and champion for justice! She was a Libra with ruling planet Venus in Scorpio and points in Gemini, her chart infused with courageous Leo.
Putin is also a Libra with ruling planet Venus in Scorpio and points in Gemini; yet he and Mrs. Hamer are very different people. Watch them both speak. One is animated with truth and wisdom; the other is flat and angry. Trump and the Dali Lama are both Geminis. Hitler and Charlie Chaplin were born just four days apart. Rick Tarnas PhD points out that this is why astrology is NOT determinative. Your birth chart does not lock you into a prescribed recipe. Check out the documentary on Tarnas’s work on Uranus and Pluto at Changingofthegods.com.
Recognizing that free will predominates within the solar system of which we are a part, we also recognize that we’re part of something far greater than our own small lives. The movements of the planets catch us in their dance and in the month of March the energy moves through water-infused Pisces and into fire-filled Aries at the spring equinox.
Pisces is the energy of compassion, mercy and forgiveness. It’s the sign of endings. Putin is giving us existential angst with his self-serving power kick. His actions destroy peace. Is this the ending we want? No. Use the power of Pisces to soften all evil action and create the present and future you want to experience by forgiving yourself and actively imagining a beautiful turning point for all of us.
March 2nd there’s a gentle 12° Pisces New Moon. As you may recall, we experienced a bunch of 12° lunations in the last few months. There are 12 months, 12 tribes, 12 disciples. What happens for you around the number 12?
This New Moon features abundant Jupiter bringing existential issues to the foreground. The planets are all direct now and line up in Pisces, Aquarius and Capricorn. Spirit, friendships, and the structure of your life is the cosmic focus of this time. Set your intention and collaborate with Spirit to bring your intention to life. Imagine world peace!
The Sun stays connected with Jupiter for the first six days of the month, and it may feel overwhelming. It could be overwhelmingly beautiful! If there were ever a time for prayer, this is it. Consider the imaginal realm as being as ‘real’ as what you see in front of you. This is Pisces energy at its best – where prayer and meditation, art and poetry, dreams and shamanic journeys – can and do influence your outer world. What kind of world would you like to see? Take strength in your power as a creative being! Unconditional Divine love and support is right here now. Personal prophecy is possible. Pay attention to your dreams.
Late on the 5th, Mars and his girlfriend Venus, move into social Aquarius and conjunct at 0°. This is the exact same spot Saturn and Jupiter met on winter solstice 2020 as the “Star of Bethlehem”. Personal ideals are global ones. Your hopes are shared. All people are one people is the cosmic message. Mars and Venus together signify the Hierogamus, the sacred marriage when the inner male protects the inner female. Read Jungian Marion Woodman for wisdom on this inner union.
March 6th, the Moon conjuncts Uranus bringing possible change.
From now until the 13th the Sun moves into a conjunction with dreamy Neptune. This can be mystical and/or confusing. No-one knows what’s going on. Stay in that imaginal realm and dream your way to a healthy, peaceful world.
March 9th, and little Mercury enters Pisces too. Your imaginative powers ramp up! Poems and movies have messages for you, as do your dreams and mediations. Be aware that over the next three weeks, flotsam may drift up from your inner world for healing.
The 11th through to the 13th, the Moon travels her home sign of Cancer bringing emotions to the surface. Peace comes as you care for your home and family. On the 13th the Moon opposes Pluto. This is personal for the United States as this country experiences its Pluto return – a time of rebirth through struggle. Keep your personal affairs simple to minimize problems.
The Leo Moon on the 14th and 15th harmonizes with Chiron in fiery Aries. Use the energy to reboot your confidence.
The Ides of March and the Moon enters fastidious Virgo for the next two days. This is a good time to put things in order.
Early, early on March 18th, the Full Virgo Moon brings both a dreamy and fear-filled energy. Keep activating your imagination and hopes toward the best-case scenario for all. Virgo and Pisces allow us to serve one another and to care for our own messes. Clean up what’s right in front of you. A day of fasting may give your system relief.
The 19th feels a little tender as the Libra Moon crosses Chiron’s path. Healing in relationship, especially after that Full Moon, is likely.
March 20th at 9:44 am MT the Sun enters Aries at the Spring Equinox. A sigh of relief blows through the collective. Fresh starts are available. Active Mars, who rules Aries is in egalitarian Aquarius putting the focus on fairness. Everyone wants the same thing. Let’s do it.
Mercury and Jupiter conjunct over the next few days offering insights and mercy. Take some notes about what’s happening in your life.
March 22nd, 23rd and 24th Mercury conjuncts dreamy Neptune. What’s real? Where and whom do I need to forgive? What’s true? The Moon in Sagittarius asks big questions. Step back and look at it all. Avoid making big decisions until the fog clears.
On the 22nd, Venus pulls away from Mars to give voice to the feminine.
March 24th through the 26th the Moon in practical Capricorn helps you orient to what needs to be done. Especially on the 26th when the Moon meets Pluto and brings powerful insights.
March 27th through to early on the 29th, the Moon travels through Aquarius connecting with Mars, Venus, and Saturn. Get with like minded others, your tribe is forming and so too are stubborn opinions.
March 28th, Venus meets Saturn and sobers up to her duties. Commitment to friends and ideas are important now.
The Moon meets abundant Jupiter in Pisces, on the 30th. Existential issues may arise. Full feelings are likely as are profound spiritual insights. Use prayer to imagine the best and brightest and let your fears go to God.
The month ends on a Aries Moon as the Sun enters a relationship with wounded healer Chiron. It’s all about you right now. Take care of your precious self.
April contains mystery and magic. I’ll see you back here for that.
Thanks for reading, and remember, you matter, we’re all connected, earth is our home and love is our destination.
