Beneath the ground, new life is stirring. We can’t yet see it, and we don’t know exactly when it will appear, but something’s happening and we can feel it.
We are restless for renewal, but are we really ready? A part of us would rather stay in bed, resting, reading and drinking strawberry tea.
Spring is speeding towards us, and this month’s influences are a mix of dreamtime and punch. A charming fog calls us to give the real world the slip and stay in a cabin on the coast for week or two. Yet here and there, shining in the mist, there are sparks of desire, burning for action and empowerment.
If we weave the apparent contradictions of Pisces and Aries together, and those of Neptune and Uranus—the outer planets now transiting these signs—March can fulfill its potential for renewal.
As always, the third month begins with Sun in the sign of the sea. Sun’s creative and mystical gifts are strengthened on Wednesday, March 1, as she conjuncts ruler Neptune. This encounter calls us to merge with something larger than ourselves. We may be tempted to indulge in Netflix or our preferred addiction.
But don’t let yourself be fooled, March is Mars’ month. Planets begin to align in restless Aries, including freedom-fighter Uranus, who will be helping us break yet another layer of calcified behaviors to uncover and revive our authentic essence.
It’s also worth noting that Pisces time is not just about retreat or escapism. It’s a strong mother of a sign, ruling the sea of our imagination from which new life is born and which joins us to all other forms of life.
In her classic, The Goddess in Your Stars, Geraldine Thurston says that from the onset of patriarchy, the profile of this great feminine sign underwent an image change. From a strong, transformative Goddess, she was reduced to being voluble, weak, even dangerous.
Much as, in the zodiac wheel, imaginative Pisces is behind active Aries, our deep mind is behind our effective action. Modern society tends to applaud movement, and discount subtle connections. Have we slipped into this groove, neglecting our gifts of intuition and creative imagination?
