Embrace Your Destiny!
Friendship, a philosophy and a dream are the themes for this week. First, combine love and friendship as relationship planet Venus enters Aquarius on March 1. Then a major destiny shift occurs with an education message on March 3, when the nodal axis shifts to Sagittarius and Gemini. Finally, invest in your dreams as March 4 brings a new Moon in spiritual Pisces!
March 1: Venus enters Aquarius
Someone to love, someone who shares your values, someone you would choose as a friend as well as a partner -- these are the desires of the love planet in egalitarian Aquarius. If you're already committed, this is a wonderful time to strengthen the bonds of friendship. If you're single and looking, this is a perfect transit in which to meet people by going to events and participating in activities you enjoy. Don't delay reaching out to make a love connection!
March 3: North node enters Sagittarius
Think of the north node as the road ahead, and the south node as where you've been. The north node points to the direction that can bring fulfillment and a greater sense of purpose, while the south node represents a collective past that yields helpful information, but should not hold too much of your attention. The nodal axis shifts into new signs approximately every 19 months. Since August 20, 2009, the north node has been transiting through ambitious Capricorn, and the south node through the opposite sign, security-conscious Cancer. Now the nodal axis shifts to the signs of education, ideas and philosophies. A Gemini south node plugs you into an information stream, but data and facts aren't necessarily what will move you forward now; instead, tune into big-picture Sagittarius. If you have a vision of where you're going and use information as a vehicle to get you there, you'll succeed. However, if you become too focused on information and the words of others without taking into account the overall theme, you'll hold yourself back.
March 4: New Moon in Pisces
This Sun and new Moon in empathetic Pisces is joined by Mars, Mercury and Uranus in this sensitive Water sign. Ordinarily, a Pisces Moon brings a call to reflect, contemplate and open yourself to spirituality. But with communicative Mercury, exciting Uranus and noisy Mars joining this new Moon, you may have difficulty finding a quiet moment! Still, this is a wonderful time to invest in your dreams and goals. New Moons are always a great opportunity to start something fresh, and this particular cycle helps you gain inner strength and a fresh perspective that will help you succeed.
