A Fresh Start!
A new Moon in inspirational Pisces on March 11 shines a spotlight on your goals and dreams, indicating that it's time to do something with them! That same day, March 11, you get all the energy you need as Mars enters fiery Aries. Much later in the week, information finally becomes available as Mercury ends its retrograde on March 17!
March 11: New Moon in Pisces
You may have trouble figuring out what's real and who's telling the truth with so many planets in Pisces during this new Moon, so be sure to proceed with caution! But with Neptune, Mercury, Venus, Mars, the Sun, and the Moon all in Pisces, this is a wonderful time to connect with your spiritual life, catch up with yourself, and leave your busy life behind -- even if only for a 24-hour period. Become reacquainted with the healing power of nature, write in your journal, or listen to inspiring music. This new Moon will help you gain inner strength and a fresh perspective to help you deal with your outer-world commitments.
March 11: Mars enters Aries
Your motivation is bound to increase as energetic Mars enters the fiery sign it rules, so if you can direct your new energy toward a goal or project, you'll be able to get more done now than you have so far all year! Just make sure your facts are in order, since Mercury remains retrograde for another six days. If you know what you want, make a plan; if you don't know, spend the next few days conducting research until Mercury turns direct later in the week. Feisty Mars in such an active sign needs a focus -- otherwise, you may find yourself becoming argumentative for no apparent reason. (Although Aries is the sign of the pioneer, both Mars and Aries are named for the God of War.) But if you can keep your mind on your own goals now, you'll go far!
March 17: Mercury turns direct
Finally! Mercury ends its retrograde today, and all those good ideas and plans for your future can begin to gain traction and move forward! Hopefully you've delayed making important decisions during Mercury's period of reverse movement, but now that you can obtain accurate information, you have everything you need to make fully informed decisions. Straighten out any recent misunderstandings as quickly as possible so they don't negatively affect your most important relationships. Mercury's current placement in Pisces lends extra power to your dreams and goals, so make an effort to get your ideas and projects out into the world!
