Please note that the aspects below are most relevant when they connect with your natal chart in a meaningful way through a planetary aspect with a house cusp and/or your natal planet(s).
Mercury goes retrograde in Pisces (March 05-28) – Mercury going retrograde is difficult enough, but when it’s traveling through Pisces, you can expect the frustrating potentials of the retrograde period to be in full bloom. This is because Mercury and Pisces go together like ketchup and broccoli. In other words, they don’t! Mercury is logical and precise whereas Pisces is dreamy and intuitive. It’s just not a hand in glove fit.
With this in mind, it’s important that you do your best to exercise greater patience and to expect the unexpected to a certain degree. Your plans can fall apart or you may have to rethink your plans. You may feel like your mind is in a fog and/or that it is difficult to make decisions. Technology and transportation can be unpredictable at times. Most importantly, communication issues can cause problems if you’re not really listening or you’re not communicating precisely enough.
Of course, there’s always a bright side to consider. Mercury in Pisces indicates that you have a powerful opportunity to develop your intuition via meditation and by being more disciplined with your spiritual path. Exploring spiritual concepts can lead to personal growth. Meditation, prayer, journaling, and making time to sort through your thoughts and plans in life can yield some empowering insights if you make the effort to do so.
Sun conjunct Neptune (March 06) – This energy may have you feeling like you’ll never get your head out of the clouds. You may feel quite preoccupied and absorbed by your own thoughts, feelings, and plans for the future. With this in mind, just know that you may find it a bit more challenging to really focus on the here and now details of your daily responsibilities. Just do your best and don’t push yourself too hard. This planetary transit is excellent for using your imagination to find creative solutions to old problems. It’s also great for meditating, visualizing, and manifesting because you’ll find it much easier to tap into the cosmos.
Sun sextile Saturn (March 09) – This is an excellent planetary transit for putting your nose to the grindstone. Discipline and motivation is the straightforward gift of this energy. Make sure you know what you want to accomplish and really get after it because the Sun sextile Saturn transit can transform you into an energetic workhorse that can really get solid results just as long as you’re willing to make the effort.
