As we enter the week, the new moon in Pisces will still be calling to us. New moons open a doorway for seven to ten days after they appear, encouraging us to create our lives and take action. While new moons always bring something new to our lives—even if it’s just a fresh perspective—it is up to us to show the Universe our intent and seize the day. Use this week to watch for synchronicities, embrace your intuition, and tap into both your creative and spiritual sides.
Our cosmic messenger, Mercury, will dance onward into the seas of Pisces beginning March 15. During this time, our thought processes will be tied to our emotions and sensitivity. While our psychic natures will be enhanced, we will find that our moods color our communication. We may suddenly be more imaginative as well as communicate ourselves more poetically. Speaking from the heart will be easier now as we can find the right things to say.
On March 16, the fiery sun in Pisces will link in a sextile to powerhouse Pluto in Capricorn. This merge of water and earth speaks well of planting important seeds as well as the harvest from previous laid efforts. Personal power will be increased by this transit, as we are able to influence others much more easily. Ambition, determination, and strength will be heightened, as we seek to achieve our goals actively and immediately. If we utilize our power to aid others and ourselves, we can be rewarded.

However, if we are destructive and seek to harm someone, negative repercussions will likely follow. Another manifestation of this energy can be that of enhanced sexual allure. The great light of the sun merges with the hypnotic energy of Pluto, allowing us to stand attractively and firmly in our confidence. This may draw others to us who we may seek to embrace.
March 18 brings yet another link to Pluto, a sextile from Venus in Pisces. This intensifies our need for love and passion significantly. We hunger to be understood and felt by others. Committed couples can harness this vibration toward united transformation and deeper sexual gratification. Singles must be cautious at this time, as they could be swept up in a whirlwind romance that may change their life irreversibly.
To end the week, one of the most important periods of the year has arrived: the Spring Equinox! This officially marks the beginning of the zodiac year and is a time of newness. Fresh starts, new beginnings, and a sense of rebirth have arrived. With Aries season here, we are ready to embrace a whole new chapter of our journeys here on Earth. Welcome in the Spring season as you contemplate what you’d like to create in the months to come.
