This is your month, Pisces. The New Moon in your sign from the last ten days of the previous month signaled a new start and novel feelings of identity and curiosity about your philosophy and worldview. Your learning curve is steep and yet satisfying when you open to intuitional information stemming from your deepest self. The planet Saturn, stern taskmaster, is just poised to enter your sign, an indication of evolving maturity. You have also a higher mind consciousness within you such that you are becoming connected to your deepest principles, to your benefit. A more integrated approach to your bottom-line values is one reward of this multifaceted time period. The Full Moon of March 7th in your opposite sign brings the key partnerships of your life into the picture of your own developmental arc, while the subsequent Last Quarter Moon of the 14th represents another significant juncture. New ideas in beliefs and worldview find you participating in issues of identity and career. You are seeking to more fully integrate inner concerns with outer performance, and values with identity. The Aries New Moon of March 21st represents a fresh start on accessing the resources that you will need as you forge ahead with a more conscious awareness of your own internal priorities.

The recent New Moon in your sign that took place last month on February 19th and 20th influences the first 20 days of the current month and could bring important renewal. This is the beginning of a new cycle that emphasizes your body, your desires, your needs, and your personal direction. It should feel easier to know and focus on what you want at this time and the clarity can help in sorting out your priorities. It may also be easier to prioritize your well-being and know exactly what you need to thrive at this time. Your sense of self-worth and your values could come to the forefront in some ways and it might be a good time to ask for a raise or find the proper channels where your work is valued and appreciated. March is a time of expansion and progress and there might be positive financial developments if you play your cards well and invest your energy in the right places.
From the 1st to the 3rd, Venus and Jupiter in Aries form a beautiful conjunction in the Western skies at dusk which is visible in the Northern Hemisphere. This is actually a triple conjunction with Chiron, the Wounded Healer, and so offers internal healing as well as positive developments related to your resources. Venus and Jupiter are also aligned throughout the first week of March which relates to the healing and integration that could be taking place especially when it comes to your self-worth and your need for autonomy. You may be presented with an offer you can’t refuse.
Mercury enters Pisces on the 2nd after forming a conjunction with Saturn which may help you dispel lingering insecurities and trust the unfolding process currently taking place in your life.
The Full Moon in Virgo on the 7th could be a significant moment this month as it takes place opposite to the sign of Pisces and should shine a light on your relationships. The compromises you have to make with partners might be highlighted in a significant way but you may also feel conflicted between your needs and the needs of others. There can be confusion as to what you or someone else can contribute at this time and important conversations could be taking place trying to sort out your agreements with others. Saturn enters Pisces a few hours after the Full Moon which is probably the most important planetary ingress for Pisces this month as it will be a two-year period of refinement and hard work in relation to your personal goals and your desires. Saturn in Pisces for the next two years can bring the challenges of restructuring your life in a way that feels more authentic while also bringing a need for deeper commitment to your path. This is the beginning of an important process that could bring important lessons in the next few years and lasting results.
The Sun and Mercury in your sign form a conjunction with Neptune mid-month, centering on the Last Quarter Moon of the 14th in Sagittarius with the Sun in your sign. The Moon opposes Mars in Gemini while the Sun conjunct Neptune is also forming a square to Mars. This is a consequential juncture when much is shifting and some tension results; perhaps it could be considered a crisis in consciousness. You may be contemplating a dream or an ideal scenario without being able to reconcile your current reality with your vision. You could feel inspired by recent developments in your life and encouraged to move forward. However, the square from Mars in Gemini might bring so many details to sort through especially in relation to your home and your domestic life. You may have to wait until the latter part of March to make sense of what you want and to know where to invest your focus in order to get the best possible outcome.
From the 15th to the 17th, Venus forms a square with Pluto while entering the sign of Taurus on the 16th. This may highlight a clash between your aspirations and your obligations. Mercury’s entry into Aries on the 18th will emphasize what you have to work with in the coming weeks especially once the Sun also enters Aries on the 20th.
The New Moon in Aries on the 21st is another important marker this month as it signals the beginning of a new cycle in the part of your chart that relates to your resources, your values, and what you have to work with. Your finances are off to a fresh start. With so many planets lined up in Aries, there are complexities to deal with, perhaps more than you bargained for. Your worldview is a moving target, and as well your deep interior process where much that factors into your decision process takes place.
Pluto enters Aquarius on the 23rd leaving the sign of Capricorn where it had been transiting since 2008. Pluto will spend the next 20 years in the sign of Aquarius and its effect may not be felt immediately however it does signal important transformation and renewal afoot, especially for things related to your unconscious motivations.
There is a lot of momentum for your passions and what you love to do in the coming weeks especially once Mars transits through the sign of Cancer starting on the 25th. Mars in Cancer will not only form a supportive trine to the sign of Pisces but also ignite the part of your chart that relates to your creative flow until the later part of May.
