Do you feel inspired? Did you pull out your journal and favorite pen this morning? That is the magical energy of this Pisces New Moon at work. The extra supercharge of mystical knowledge coming at you is brought on by a close conjunction with Neptune in Pisces’s ruler and an exact trine with Jupiter, the traditional ruler of the two fishes, who is in Cancer. Blessed be! Faith is miraculously restored, dreams intensify and perception is heightened as your long-time project finally comes to fruition! Persuasive Pluto in Capricorn creates a desire to dive deeply into current ventures and work them through to completion. In addition, Chiron, the centaur who represents the wounds we learn to heal others with, is conjunct this lunation in Pisces. We now have an opportunity to work on self-identification and realize we are indeed spiritual beings having a human experience. The dualistic sign of the two fishes marks the end of the Zodiac cycle and reminds us that we exist in the realm of spirit as well as the physical. Rather than dipping into the psychosis and paranoia that can come from the unknown, choose to ride deeply into the unconscious mind and swim back to the surface with pearls of wisdom.
Later today, Mars turns retrograde and seemingly hits the brakes on all forward motion. Don’t let this throw you. It is an opportunity to redistribute and reschedule. This whacky rebound takes place in Libra giving a chance to cool down and find new considerate ways to accomplish all the tasks at hand. Take care to stick with the truth and avoid passive aggressive behavior at all costs.
Joining the back-peddling, staunch Saturn in Scorpio turns introspective in retrograde as well on March 2. This is a great opportunity to begin or strengthen your meditation practice. Why not join me for my upcoming Vak-Yoga seminars or better yet, my journey to Peru. These are great ways to begin or deepen and existing practice. This period of introspection lasts through July 30. All shifts taking place now are very subtle on the surface, yet they are moving mountains inwardly.
March 5, lovely Venus floats into Aquarius. This is a time of emotional detachment as she can indeed cool things down. Don’t become fooled that passion has dwindled but rater use this as an opportunity to connect more profoundly at an intellectual level with your love. Freedom in relationships and a realization that another cannot fill a perceived hole is when the greatest depths can be reached. Let go of stereotypes and create your own unique idea of what your interactions are.
Changing the directional trend, Jupiter in Cancer begins to slowly move forward having completed his recent retrograde cycle. The connection with the sign of the crab gives an opportunity to reconnect with your roots. Draw wisdom from your elders and honor your family. This helps set a strong stone in the foundation of your ability to nurture and care for others.
The Full Moon in Virgo on March 16, gives you the ability to discern the difference between actual and intangible aspects of what we call reality. Indeed this is a month of strong artistic currents but it is also an opportunity for compassion and ways to overcome superficial skirmishes. Do what you can to turn inward and find a contemplative state of being.
Mercury joins the inner planets in Pisces March 17, infusing the dream state with rich imagery and ideas. Be sure to capture these magical musings in your journal and place them into your creative projects. It is acceptable to let the mind drift as long as you keep a loose tie to it. This way when it finds a brilliant idea, you can reel it in and capture it!
March 20, the Sun flames into boisterous Aries. This heralds the start of the new Tropical year and change of seasons. Keep in mind the mirror reflection of the Mars ruled warrior is Venutian Libra. Choose peace and acts that create more balance in your life.
I wish you a blessed month of magical dreaming and compassionate acts. May you realize new aspects of self and in turn share the beauty with those around you!
I invite you to read on for my predictions for the 12 signs.
Aries March 19/20 to April 20/21
Mind your rammy tendencies. Your desire for independence is at a major high. Take care to not singe those around you with your need for space. It is impossible for everyone and everything to adapt to your every whim. Energy is a little bit below optimum, watch out for blue periods. When you sense this coming on, politely excuse yourself and bow gracefully out of any social demands you are unable to meet. Quiet time is extra important now. If needed, use a day off from work to take “me” time and just take care of you. Ignore when those closest to you act more temperamental than usual. Just give them a wider girth.
Taurus April 20/21 to May 21/22
Let the kindness of others melt your rough exterior. As emotions swim to the surface, stay vigilantly aware of your reactions. It takes very little to set others off. Place your recent ponderings into action. Now is the time to ask for an evaluation and a subsequent raise. Those of you in business for yourselves can seek backers and new allies. Attend social functions and allow yourself to be led to places where you can make new connections. Take a much needed break from your daily routine and attend a spiritually focused workshop or retreat. All personal relationships have hair-trigger tempers so take care and think twice before knowingly provoking them.
Gemini May 21/22 to June 21/22
Make health your primary focus. Take extra care to monitor your stress levels. The good news is that your self-esteem is on the rise. This in turn replenishes the dwindling and depleted resources you had been working with. All relationships are slowly beginning to move forward. If you have been seeking your twin, or mirror self, you find many better prospects available. Keep your eyes and your heart open. A financial windfall must be carefully invested so as to provide for the future. Be sure to sock away a good amount. When opportunity for foreign travel arises, why not go for it? The domestic need you have been trying to handle, finally works itself out. It is fine to adopt a “have it all” attitude.
Cancer June 22/23 to July 22/23
The speed of life has indeed increased way beyond your comfort zone. Be sure to find plenty of time to immerse yourself in rest and contemplation. Research and study gets you to the necessary answers you have been seeking. Work-wise, things seem a little slow, don’t let it fool you. A strong rush is just around the corner demanding your unique offerings. Luck is on your side, so reach a little past your boundaries. Pack your bags as an extended business trip is just around the corner. Be sure to take your dream journal along!
Leo July 22/23 to August 23/24
Everything is coming clearly into focus regarding your career and what you really want. It seems just a simple smile magically unlocks many doors. The boons and cravings you have are about to be satisfied and met. Be patient as they are traveling at a slower pace than you hope. The secret to moving it along is to get into an intensive clean up mode. The recent flourish in your sex life begins to transform into an opportunity for love. This causes you to wake up to the facts about your past patterns and offers a great deal of personal growth. It is up to you what will be.
Virgo August 23/24 to September 23/24

Take extra time to seek out guidance for any financial risk you are considering. When you over-stress the mind, the body is compromised, so take extra good care of your health. Let your feelings act as a meter for your decision making.
Libra September 23/24 to October 23/24
Get yourself on a strict sleeping and eating schedule. The recent fast pace you have been moving at, is creating poor health. You cannot risk this doubly destructive outcome. To get your creative project going again, you receive a much needed visit from your muse. Rather than getting hung up on the long absence, just be grateful for the current infusion. Take extra care to avoid burnout. If forced to choose between art and love, choose the creative expression and keep the physical connection light.
Scorpio October 23/24 to November 22/23
Reach to the back of your closet and pull out your best outfits. You are about to take the town by storm. Many great things are happening. Whenever you find yourself at home, take advantage of the ability to practice good healthy habits. This helps to counteract the effects of being on the road. As you encounter new people places and things, be sure to feel a magnetic force both emotionally and intellectually. A déjà vu from your past shows up in the form of a new package. This new acquaintance is an opportunity to resolve old issues and helps you redefine and adjust past reactive patterns.
Sagittarius November 22/23 to December 21/22
You have found it very difficult to have time just for yourself. Any effort you have made to change this has failed. The good news is you have become a great deal clearer as to where you wish to head in the near future. You must see that your frustration comes from a perceived lack of power. Breakthroughs happen when you identify the patterns. This is the current lesson at hand. It could last for the next six months so it is your choice to get it now or struggle.
