It’s all happening! The first week of March is packed with definitive transits, all centered around a gorgeous new moon in Pisces on the 2nd. As the moon refreshes itself alongside bountiful Jupiter, we too can luxuriate in the sheer range of possibilities before us. Some might call Pisces delusional or out of this world, but couldn’t we all use a little fantasy right now? Mercury enters dreamy Pisces on the 9th, allowing words to spill out of us like poetry while we process what’s happened so far this year.
Mars and Venus, who have been engaged in a will-they/won’t-they dance since early February, both move into Aquarius on the 6th where they make their final conjunction (after meeting up originally on February 16th). Mars-Venus aspects bring clashes between what we desire and how we pursue that longing. This final meeting of the two relational planets reveals that though we can’t always get what we want, we might just get what we need. Things aren’t immediately easy though, as Venus remains caught between Mars and Saturn (in a configuration that ancient astrologers called besiegement—doesn’t sound cute, does it?) through the 28th. There’s still more to be worked out and whatever we’ve negotiated thus far may feel dissatisfying until then.
The vibe shifts in the middle of the month when we get a full moon in Virgo on the 18th: a practical, grounded reality check amidst the haze of Pisces season. Then the sun moves into firebrand Aries on the 20th—happy birthday to our dynamo Aries divas like Jill Scott, Celine Dion and Mariah Carey. Messenger Mercury glides into Aries on the 27th ensuring that our opinions are loud, our laughs are buoyant, and our points are clear as we close out the month.
