Monday, March 7. Tomorrow’s solar eclipse beginning to the Pisces lunar cycle kicks into gear today. Might as well flow into the cosmic ooze to get started on the work of the next lunar cycle. Think: dissolution and union, compassion and vulnerability, risks and resiliency. The potential for big experiences is strong, depending on how tuned in you are. The potential to numb out and escape is pretty strong too. Resist thinking about these urges as good/bad, but think of Jupiter in Virgo (about to oppose the Sun tomorrow) as a clarion call to be discerning. What serves you? The morning is a temptation to experience bliss when the Moon conjoins Venus, but by the middle of the day (CST) we may notice annoyance and frustrations when the Moon in Pisces makes a square to Mars in Sagittarius. This may be the needed pinprick to help us wake up to our intentions and desires. Be ready to receive intuition-based messages this evening when the Moon conjoins Mercury.
March 8—New Moon: Dreaming. Solar Eclipse. What defenses are you ready to give up? Will you boldly risk vulnerability to crack open a myth that no longer serves your own thriving? The chart for this New Moon in Pisces is not fooling around, so why should our intentions for this cycle be timid?
Wednesday, March 9. When the Moon moves out of Pisces and into Aries today, we notice just a little less introversion and a little more desire to come out and join the world again. I wish for all of us that we emerge into this day feeling cleansed by the experience of supportive vulnerability. However, some of us may be feeling a little fragile from the events and memories that rose to the surface over the last couple of days. Aries’ gift is to begin again, to take a risk, to dare to make mistakes. May you receive that gift.
Thursday, March 10. If you feel like you are the only who has dark thoughts of revenge, or isolating depression, or incredible frustration, then know you are not alone. I’ve noticed that when I am deep into my own experience, I can forget that I am not the only one having them. Today’s transits actually emphasize dark thoughts (Moon in Aries square to Pluto in Capricorn), sadness (Sun conjoined Chiron in Pisces), and extreme impatience (Moon conjoins Uranus in Aries). What happens when we feel empathy for how these emotions affect others too?
Friday, March 11. While we slept (in the time zones of the western hemisphere), Mercury in Pisces conjoined Neptune. This is the perfect dreamtime transit. Perhaps you awaken with a vivid dream memory or perhaps you just feel attuned to seeing the world through Pisces glasses today. Intuition, synchronous messages, and poetry are the methods to use. Take extra care if you need to be linear, logical, or efficient with your words. This is a marvelous set up for a return to sensual delight when the Moon moves into Taurus.
March 12—Crescent: Beginning. I’ve decided to work with this intention for the Pisces lunar cycle: to break down old myths through vulnerability and allow myself to be seen. This phase of the Moon is a time to take the next step, to begin to support intention with action. This phase is described as the “Breaking Free” phase of the cycle. To manifest something new, perhaps we need to break free of the old ways. The prime directive of this Pisces lunar cycle is to use the power of water to do things differently. Does this mean listening more to your emotions? Does it mean listening more to intuition? Can you create more flow and let the force of water help you around the obstacles in your life? Do you need to let water soften your hard edges or nourish dry landscapes? The possibilities of water are many.
Sunday, March 13. The Taurus Moon over the last couple of days has provided good grounding for Piscean explorations of water. When the Moon moves into another mutable sign, Gemini, this afternoon, it could feel like we’ve lost that stability. Gemini encourages conversation, connection ,and curiosity—all lovely qualities—but it can also encourage scattered thoughts and lack of focus. When you notice your mind spinning, remember the water of this lunar cycle. Water can calm and soothe overwhelming mental activity too.
