It's an especially powerful Pisces season this year, as Mercury Retrograde March 5-28 joins the Sun and Neptune in the final and most cosmic sign of the Zodiac, whose imaginative powers are enhanced by Jupiter in idealistic Sagittarius. Dreams and visions, prophecies and prayers, surrender and sacrifice, empathy and transcendence: these are the things that March is made of.
The universal becomes intensely personal and extremely porous. Boundaries between objective truth and perceived reality blur. Trust your sixth sense as your most reliable navigation tool now! Uranus in Taurus disrupts the status quo, particularly in money markets, crypto-currencies, and all things having to do with the environment. The "Green New Deal" is a perfect metaphor for a revised relationship to Mother Earth and our shared planetary resources, such as air and water, which some fear as radical while others understand as revolutionary.
Mercury wears a jester's hat as he stations retrograde on Mardi Gras (March 5), just prior to the tender, sensitive New Moon in Pisces on March 6. The joker is wild but nobody's laughing: factual distortions and downright deceit from institutions previously assumed to be trustworthy wound the vulnerable and discourage the naive. That wound turns to righteous indignation as victimization is rejected in favor of activism by the Full Moon in justice-loving Libra at the Vernal Equinox on March 20. Impotent rage paralyzes, but decisive action heals!
Resurrected dreams revive the faint of heart and renew hope as the like-minded multiply on their way to reaching a critical mass. The scope of the problem is revealed by the end of March. Accept the reality that you can't sit this one out. Resist the urge to trade your walk-on part in this war for a lead role in a cage. Don't wish you were here: Be here now!
