We floated into March on Tuesday, with five planets plus Chiron in a Pisces stellium, giving us the energy of increased sensitivity, heightened intuition, and the feeling that we are seeing below surface appearances. On Thursday March 3, the Moon moves into Pisces as well, and the “life as a dream” experience intensifies. The Pluto/Mars sextile, plus Chiron in Pisces, will give energy to the ideals of introspection, compassionate service, and forgiveness. When the New Moon in Pisces arrives on Friday, March 4 at 12:45 PM PST, we can take full advantage of this mystical energy by spending a few moments that day in meditation, and by visioning positive affirmations for ourselves and the planet. Our capacity for sensing the connectedness of all beings is greatly enhanced at that time.
All this dreaminess, however, has a powerful counterpunch via the action-oriented Jupiter in Aries square to Pluto in Capricorn plus a waxing opposition between Jupiter and Saturn in Libra, which is forcing us to seek balance amid uproar. Our impulse to take action, to bring about massive change, is in full force. This will take many forms. Look at the number of governors trying to change nearly a century’s worth of history by breaking up worker unions. Consider the huge number of people across the nation expressing their resistance to that change by publicly rallying against the oppressive action. The people of Libya are in a full state of revolution while their corrupt dictator of the last 40 years states, “There are no demonstrations against me. All my people love me.” Know that this phenomenon of extremes is not only playing out on the world stage, but within each of us as well.
