March and the Energies of Pisces
However you look at it there is no getting away from the fact that March is going to bring us some interesting but intense energetic opportunities.
In a sense we have arrived at a gateway that we can only pass through in comfort if we are willing to relinquish any ‘baggage’ from the past that we are still attached to. The ability to go with the flow and simply allow the release of anything no longer needed in our lives is therefore going to be particularly helpful this month. Put another way we could say that the theme for the month is very clearly endings and new beginnings.
As always during March the sun shines onto the earth through the constellation of Pisces, bringing a magnification of the qualities and ray energies associated with this particular constellation. In western astrology Pisces is represented by the sign of two fish apparently swimming in different directions yet connected together by a thread, a symbol that is a constant reminder of the illusion of separation and the need for personality and soul to operate as one.
Pisces is the last sign in the zodiacal year so each year as we enter the influence of Pisces we are effectively closing a cycle and getting ready to begin a new one when the sun moves into Aries.
So a focus on endings and beginnings is always a theme at this time of the year as the watery energies of Pisces stimulate cleansing and release of anything that we do not need to take with us into the new zodiacal cycle.
This year we have some planetary ‘big guns’ assisting us with the process of ending the old. March 16/17 sees the seventh and last exact hit of the Pluto Uranus square that has been such a feature of our astrological weather over the last few years. As you will no doubt be aware from previous experience this is not an easy energetic configuration to negotiate because of its uncompromising and relentless persistence on revolutionary change and transformation. There is a sense as we approach this last close encounter in the series that much of the accumulated energy from previous conjunctions is now fuelling this one so that we really get the job done properly.
If you are anything like us you will have been feeling the effect of this energetic configuration intensifying for a few weeks now and we can certainly see its effects in the world around us. Unexpected, irrational and illogical events that seemingly come out of the blue (Uranus) and a steady outpouring of old previously hidden often unsavoury events that cannot be kept secret anymore (Pluto).
To emphasise even further the need for closure of the old we have a new moon eclipse in the very last degree of Pisces very shortly before the sun moves into Aries at the spring equinox on March 20th. This is the energetic gateway through which we must all pass this month – with grace and ease if possible.
A Time of Choice
In effect this month’s energetic configurations create another opportunity for us to choose to align our consciousness with the new patterning for life on Earth. Likely we will find ourselves faced with further reminders that what used to work perfectly well in the old patterning does not work at all in the new.
When this happens it might feel temporarily uncomfortable especially if you are tempted to resist the flow and direction of change through lack of understanding or fear of what might happen. Remember in this situation that your soul is in charge and knows exactly what you have chosen to do and who you have chosen to do it with in this lifetime. It also knows the ‘stories’ that need releasing in order that you can fully know yourself as you truly are and will make the best use it can of the current energetic configurations to help you release and move on. So taking time to gather yourself into your heart so that you can align with your inner truth will be particularly important this month.
Choosing to allow the light of our true selves to be visible in the world is one of the best ways that we can assist the process of change at this time.
