Strap in and get ready for a wild cosmic ride this month, as the winds of change are blowing strong in March. The first of five eclipses this year begins on March 8th marking a pivotal turning point that should be carefully observed over the next 6 months. This New Moon/Solar Eclipse will highlight the mystical sign of Pisces. This could be a time of spiritual renewal. It presents an ideal opportunity to go on a retreat or pilgrimage. Two weeks later, on March 23rd, a Lunar Eclipse will fall in collaborative Libra. Close relationships will come under intense scrutiny. Warring couples will have to decide whether to make up or break up. Repeat after me: “Change can be a good thing.”
Procrastination is part of the human condition. We avoid what’s painful and stay in our comfort zones. That’s why we occasionally need a little cosmic kick in the pants to push us off the fence and into action. Eclipses are these agents of change. They fall four to six times a year and turn things upside-down. In our disoriented state, we may act out of character or see turbulence in the world. Eclipses can also help break patterns and shift dynamics. However, most astrologers suggest waiting a week or so before taking drastic action, allowing the eclipse energy to settle first.
Pisces is a water sign and the 12th sign of the zodiac signifying the Great “Cosmic Oneness” from which we all emerge and ultimately return. This 12th and final sign of the zodiac wheel is all about “perception” and seeing with our Third Eye, using our psychic senses to perceive the hidden and unseen realms…the subtle realms of the unconscious: dreams, telepathy, psychic phenomena, precognition, mysticism and inspiration.
I’m sure you’ve noticed how we are moving quickly from the density of the 3D world to a more enlightened state of being. Pisces is the sign that provides the bridge from the third dimension to that of higher consciousness and altered states. It moves us from the physical plane into the astral worlds and beyond. Like a radio receiver, we can attune to a myriad of “channels and frequencies”. Logic and reason dissolve in the world of the unconscious this month. Pisces has no sense of time (except the Dreamtime). There is no past, no future, and no separation. This is the sign of the “Christ Consciousness” of total Oneness and Compassion of the Heart. This New Moon in Pisces gives us the “green light” to set our intentions for bringing more peace, harmony, and creativity into our lives. We are being impelled to dream a new dream and to create a New World of Wonder!
