Sun moved into Pisces on Feb 18th
In our journey toward an ever-expanding sense of self, Pisces brings us to knowing a oneness with all that is, that we are part and parcel of God. However, because our ego has been unaware of any direct experience of our divine connection, we have struggled through various substitutes, from religious martyrdom to drug addiction.
Pisces’ spiritual intention is to give us conscious access to our divine wholeness in infinite, eternal and unconditional love. We learn to be nonjudgmental and compassionate. We free our minds with meditation and self-reflection. We let go of any need to “fix” the world, and surrender our anxiety to a “higher power” and a divine plan. Our ego learns to relax totally, sometimes seeming non-existent. We feel at peace, not by denying worldly reality, but by incorporating divine reality.
On March 16, Uranus and Pluto square up (90 degrees) for the final of seven squares over two years. This is a very unusual and major event for all humanity, relating to social and economic unrest as the forces for individual rights and freedom (Uranus in Aries) have been battling with the forces of powerful corporations, governments and religions (Pluto in Capricorn). As individuals, our challenge is and will be to stand up for our selves in the face of overwhelming powers, and trust in a greater truth, larger vision, and loving universe to support transformative and positive change.
Saturn’s continuing square with Neptune invites us to broaden our understanding of “reality” while keeping it grounded and in balance with our compassionate, intuitive knowing of and longing for a better world.
New Moon on March 20
The New Moon on March 20 sitting right on the cusp of Pisces/Aries, with Mercury conjoining Neptune in Pisces, invites our intentions to bring a new, divine awareness to our actions across the planet.
Jupiter trines Uranus during March, promising plenty of opportunities for intuitive action toward change as active and willful Mars joins with Uranus. Because Jupiter is retrograding (backwards) into April, this isn’t the time for outward actions in the material world, which is what Jupiter usually invites. Rather, this is a time to go inward and apply higher understanding to our own moral behaviors. Thus, on the world stage and in our personal lives, we need to beware of overreacting to perceived danger with reckless actions.
Good Pisces activities in March
To align your energy with Pisces, spend some extra time alone. Meditate. Make or listen to music that opens your heart to feeling your divine connection. Pray. Invoke gratitude as often as you can remember. Forgive yourself and others as much as possible. As you greet others, those familiar and strangers, engage their eyes deeply and acknowledge them as fellow souls before addressing them as personalities. As you hear of world events, hold a prayer of forgiveness and peace for all parties. Contrary to any resistance from your logical mind, affirm a vision for the more beautiful world you know, in your heart, is possible. Know you are love, we are love, and all is perfect.
Good Pisces questions to ask yourself in March.
To heal and evolve your Pisces self, give attention to your spiritual awareness. Do you blame outside yourself? Do you feel alienated from God? Do you get confused around other people’s feelings? Can you feel compassion without needing to rescue? Do you trust the flow of life? Can you feel your divine connection to others, beyond just a concept? Do you meditate and spend time alone in self-reflection? Do you trust that this seemingly unfair and cruel world is actually perfect for all souls in it? Does that last question tend to annoy you?
