The Calendar may be saying ‘March’ but we won’t be marching anywhere this month – swimming is more like it. As the planets move in their assigned orbits around the Sun, from our perspective here on earth we see them against the backdrop of constellations of stars. This month 5 planets and the asteroid, Chiron, are all swimming in the emotional and sensitive sign of Pisces.
Pisces is associated with the planet Neptune and both are symbols of imagination, spirituality, creativity, intuition, dreams, illusions, compassion, forgiveness, drugs, alcohol and transcendence. We might just as well consider ourselves “under the influence”. Remember too, that Mercury, the planet of thinking and communication is not only in this very touchy-feely sign, but is also moving in a retrograde pattern until March 17th. Our usual ways of thinking through problems and communicating are being filtered through our hearts. Those of us who tend to rely more on the brain than heart are likely to feel confused, foggy and maybe a bit overwhelmed. Just what happened to all my great planning, agendas and protocols? Right now they are all wet!
But also consider, Neptune harnesses the power of the heart and of water – able to dissolve boundaries between people and allow creative solutions to emerge. Your imagination is never as powerful as now, under the guidance of Neptune. On Monday March 11, the Moon will join all these planets in Pisces and as it comes into alignment with the Sun a new lunar cycle will begin. New Moons are always powerful symbols of new beginnings – this one is infused with the power of wisdom derived from our inner search for truth and meaning. We are encouraged to connect with our inner source for direction and guidance.
This is not our usual March. As occasionally happens, the cosmos throws a party and many of the planets attend. Right now that party is at the beach – so grab your swim suits and don’t forget your snorkel gear. There is a vast world of imagination to explore down there.
