March, during which the Sun is first in Pisces, the last sign of the zodiac, and then moves into Aries, the first sign, is a creative, magical time. We have opportunities for closure—and also to begin anew.
As the month starts, all planets are direct except Mercury the messenger, who’s still in post-retrograde shadow. We feel like moving forward, and yet there are loose ends remaining to tie up, and the first 12 days of the month are the time to do this!
The electrifying alignment in Aquarius that dominated the sky since Winter Solstice gave us a sense of new possibilities and moved us to share our light. The stellium now has shifted, with Sun, sweet Venus and empathetic Neptune all in Pisces. This twelfth sign is about subtle realms, self-healing, and finishing things: the planets involved spotlight love and compassion.
As Mercury finishes its post-retrograde, the Pisces alignment of March invites us to release emotional patterns that limit our love-nature. With Sun in Pisces, our intuition guides our priorities to heal inner ills, for example, low self-worth, toxic shame or guilt, resentment, attachment to past relationships or just general negativity towards self and others. Whatever our personal areas of interest are, we likely worked on them sometime in the past—perhaps many times—or they may just be like scattered debris lying around in the corners of our mind, occupying space, draining our happiness, and limiting our sense of aliveness.
On Sunday, March 7, Pallas Athena, asteroid of strategy, enters Pisces, and opens a channel to direction from higher intelligences that will help us get the job done—both the work of inner healing and other loose ends that need attention. As we hone in on these situations, we prepare the ground of our being to receive the seeds of new beginnings facilitated with March’s influences of renewal.
