March is upon us!
This week is an energetically heavy week as Mercury stations Retrograde in Pisces, we have a New Moon in Pisces, Uranus enters Taurus, the Sun makes a conjunction to Neptune in Pisces, the Sun makes a Sextile to Saturn in Capricorn , and we end the week with Mars making a Sextile to Neptune. Although not all these transits are negative, the Mercury RX period may cause things to feel more difficult than they should.
We are entering a new phase as a collective with Uranus entering Taurus on Wednesday and we may find ourselves wanting to make some drastic changes to our physical world. But as always with Uranus, we may find ourselves amongst change whether we wanted it or not.
I wrote a lot of guidance for this week below and found myself making many grammatical errors as well as typos, which isn't unlike me but it seemed extra bad today. The Mercury fog and shadow of the retrograde has been effecting me quite a bit as of late and while that's no excuse, I do apologize for any typos or run on sentences that I failed to correct in my edits. As a Pisces Moon in the 3rd house opposing my Virgo Mercury in the 9th, this seems to be a life theme for me either way. Ha!
If I were to give general blanketed guidance for this week to all of you who happen to read this, I would say this week we need to let go and tune into our higher selves. This is not a time for implementing plans or routines, but rather for reviewing patterns and accessing deeper parts of ourselves without judgement.
For some of us we may reach spiritual epiphanies that bring us towards changes for the betterment of our minds, bodies, and soul. This may be a week for those suffering from addiction that they reach a new low that ignites a path to seeking help.
Pisces shadow nature is depression, escapism , isolation, and taking things personally. We are prone to these things during the Mercury Retrograde and so it will be important that we implement a good routine for our mental health and make space for self care and healing during this time.
Tarot Cards for the week:
The Moon, The Tower, The High Priestess, Temperance, Judgement, 7 of Cups, 8 of Cups, 9 of Cups, Page of Cups, Queen of Cups, King of Cups, Death, The Devil, The Hermit.
Moon in Aquarius
We could say that today is our last "chill" day before an emotionally intense week of transits, but some of us, if not most of us, may already be feeling the intensity of emotional energy within the shadowy build up to our Mercury RX and New Moon in Pisces. The Moon in Aquarius allows for us to keep some emotional detachment for the day and to be a little lighter with our energy than we may find ourselves in the days to come. Aquarian energy can also be intense but in a different way, a more mental focus that can either have us feeling a lot of mental conflict or feeling like we need a break and we are ready to give it to ourselves. We can see the 4 of Swords card, which is ruled by Aquarius, in the Tarot as a good energy to tap into for the day. The 4 of Swords asks us to take a break and practice some meditation and deep breathing. We need to rest and allow ourselves to be calm and peaceful within our body and minds. We benefit from tuning in and giving ourselves space to prepare for what the next few days will bring.
Strong Aspects During the Day PST
Moon Sextile Jupiter in Sagittarius 8:30 AM
We feel a need to expand our values and belief systems in the morning hours. This is a harmonious time and we may feel pulled towards learning or experiencing something new that opens up our minds and hearts in new and educational ways.
Moon Void of Course 12:05 AM
Moon enters Pisces 12:11 AM
The Moon is neutral in Pisces but tunes us into our psychic and intuitive awareness in a heightened and intense way. Our emotional capacity may be operating at an all time high which could feel like everything is too much to handle. Its common when the Moon is in Pisces that we are more susceptible to absorb the energy around us and confuse it as our own. It is important that we spend time alone and focus on rejuvenating during this time.
Strong Aspects During the Day PST
Mercury Stations Retrograde in Pisces 10:19 AM
Mercury is in its Detriment in Pisces meaning it is a weak place for Mercury to be. Mercury Retrograde in Pisces may be very uncomfortable for a lot of us and bring a lot of emotional energy we have been trying to suppress more into the forefront of our lives. Because Mercury rules communication and technology, this is also a time when electronics and transactions can be anything but smooth. It is important during this time that we learn to let go of our need for control and see where we can go more with the flow in our lives. Pisces energy can also be illusive and deceptive which means we are likely to misinterpret or understand things clearly during this time. Mercury RX lasts until March 28th which is an extra long RX. Yay for us......? Just remember its ok to cry, and if you need to do a lot of it in the next three weeks, just let it out without judgement. I'll be playing Sade and Lana Del Rey on repeat.
New Moon in Pisces 8:04 AM
New Moons are a time for setting intentions for new cycles but with Mercury Retrograde in the mix it may not feel like we are moving forward as fast as we would like to, just remember that's ok and that there is a rhyme and a reason to the cycles of the Universe. This New Moon shouldn't be focused too much on our outward lives anyways. It should be focused on healing and rejuvenating and working through deeper layers of ourselves and our connection to spirit within and without. Pisces wants us to connect to our hearts and to become one with the All. This can lead us down a path of escapism but that is not the goal. The goal is to intentionally focus our spiritual energy on connecting to the divine and the energetic vibrational frequencies of the Cosmic Universe. This is a time to align our hearts and our minds. Dreams will be enhanced during this time and the messages we receive in our dreams will serve as significant to the subconscious growth happening within us at this time. Spending time in water on the New Moon is also beneficial. Do a meditation in the shower or a bath, cleanse yourself, cry it out, dream journal, meditate with selenite. Get yourself to a place where you are quiet, introspective, and receptive to messages from beyond.
Strong Aspects During the Day PST
Uranus enters Taurus 12:35 AM
Uranus makes its station into Taurus where it will stay until April 26th 2026. That gives us a good 7 years with Uranus in the fixed earth sign of the sturdy and stable Bull. Uranus however is not stable, Uranus is considered a "crisis" planet and is one of the most unstable planets in Astrology. Uranus brings unexpected changes to our lives and breaks apart stability and structure. Because Uranus is a slow moving outer planet, we go through Uranus transits as a collective in more definitive cycles that can be defined throughout history. The last time Uranus was in Taurus was during the Great Depression and World War 2.
On a personal level, wherever Uranus in Taurus is transiting in your birth chart, and if it is making any aspects to any other planets in your chart, will dictate what parts of your life you can expect to see the most changes in over the next 7 years.
The repeated affirmation we keep saying for this transit is " get comfortable getting uncomfortable."
Moon Conjunct Neptune in Pisces 8:48 AM
We may feel out of our bodies and mentally foggy in the morning hours. We most likely had intense dreams during the night and we could find ourselves feeling extra sensitive. Move slow and be kind to yourself in the morning hours.
Moon Sextile Saturn in Capricorn 12:58 PM
Saturn helps to ground us a bit in the afternoon and this may feel much needed if we felt ungrounded in the morning. Find ways of connecting to your physical world in healthy and positive ways. It will help anchor your emotions to spend some time in nature and breathe in some fresh air.
Sun in Pisces Conjunct Neptune in Pisces 5:01 PM
Artistic, creative and mystical pursuits get a boost during this transit and if we are able to use this energy wisely we are able to channel in some amazing things during this time. Our imaginations could be at an all time high and this can play out well for those of us who use our imagination to create things in the physical world in positive ways. For those who lean more towards escapism, this transit can trigger addicts or those who have dependency on substances and abusing them. It will be important that those in recovery seek guidance during this time from someone they trust. Because Neptune can contribute to poor judgement of character, we need to not seek support or guidance from those we do not trust or know well as we may be easily deceived during this time if not careful.
Moon Square Jupiter in Sagittarius 9:37 PM
Tension in the evening is enhanced around our belief systems and our emotional process. We may be having a deep realization that there are some changes we need to make around how we process and internalize our feelings and that we need to seek guidance or education around the next steps in our lives. There is also a tendency towards over indulgence and escapism during these transits and we need to be careful not to fall into old patterns around over eating, over drinking, or over spending as a way to cope with reality.
Moon Sextile Pluto in Capricorn 9:41 PM
Use this energy to let go of things in your physical world that are not serving you and lean into the transformative energy taking place.
Moon Void of Course 11:08 AM
Moon enters Aries 12:27 PM
After an emotionally intense day the Moon in Aries might help us to feel more action oriented to implementing some of the things we feel we want to do in our lives. We still need to expect things to not really gain momentum right away as Mercury RX is still a major player for the weeks to come. The Moon in Aries can also make us more inclined to having little patience and a hot temper.
It is important that we find ways of
expelling energy without taking it out on those around us. Go to the gym, a boxing class, or do some kundalini yoga. Get heat moving through your body to expel any energy trying to get out.

Moon Conjunct Mercury in Pisces 11:08 AM
We may feel a lot of mental fog in the morning and it may interfere with our ability to process information at this time. Things may move slower than usual and we also could be ultra sensitive during this transit to the energy of others.
International Women's Day
Moon in Aries
The energy of the moon mixed with the energy of the transit below asks us to ground our emotions in a constructive way. It may feel good to be action oriented and getting things done but we need to not lose our cool if the action we are trying to take is blocked or stifled by things out of our control. Focus on yourself and take breaks throughout the day to clear your mind. Block out some time to get physical with your body to expel any build up of tension within your body.
Strong Aspects During the Day PDT
Sun in Pisces Sextile Saturn in Capricorn 11:10 PM
Awareness of our goals and what we need to do to get there is enhanced during the days of this transit and we benefit from beginning to map out a plan. Of course with Mercury RX its always iffy trying to implement anything so you may just want to write these ideas down rather than execute them at this time. We could feel extra passionate about the vision we have for our work and the direction we are going in. This is a great time for creative visualization around what we can make happen in our physical world.
