March kicks off with the mystical waves of the Pisces new Moon on March 2, 2022. This moment creates infinite possibilities, brings spiritual initiation, and stretches our capacity to understand. The deeply intuitive Neptune-guided sign of Pisces connects us closer to our center. To serve, love, and give is the essence of Pisces. It enables us to open our hearts through a gentle pulse of gratitude, stirring our compassion from a felt sense. The energy of this time gives us a safe place to let go, and gets us to the other side to be a vessel for inspiration. It is a gentle reminder that love is the foundation of the world.
Love is deep as the road is long
And moves my feet to carry on
It beats my heart when you are gone
Love is deep as the road is long.
The gifts of Pisces
Pisces’ home is the water element, and its symbol is two fish swimming in opposite directions, connecting the material and spiritual worlds, reminding us we are all one. The water element gives life. It has a cleansing power, making its way through even the smallest of places. It can often be mirror-like, reflecting to us our thoughts and emotions. Water aligns us with receptivity and openness, aiding in our spiritual healing process.
Pisces dwells in the twelfth house. This means we can get right with our karmic debt at this time. With this new Moon, we have an opening to drop the game, the defense, the self-judgment, and instead open ourselves to the virtues of compassion, softness, and love.
Our intuitive insights are progressing us, leading us to make positive and lasting changes in our lives. These last two years have rocked and rolled us out of our comfort zone. We are in a time of rebirth, a new chance to begin again. History, old feels, and former fears that have left a mark on the way we love, live, and give are being brought to the surface to be cast out of our seas.
Nobody knows how to get back home
And we set out so long ago
Search the heavens and the Earth below
Nobody knows how to get back home.
Notice the synchronicities and hidden support giving reassurance that you are on the right path, giving you confirmation. You are in the right place. Your dreams might be heightened at this time, which allows for enhanced emotional processing. Dreams can be truth-tellers of what we are still holding in our psyche or confirmations for the things we question. Every experience and every relationship can be a mirror of mental patterns tied to emotional reactions that we carry within us. Revelation brings liberation. It works like magic to open or close even the heaviest door. What is being revealed is ready to be healed, released, or celebrated.
Jupiter in Pisces
This new Moon is aligning with Jupiter, the planet of miraculous fortune. Jupiter has been in Pisces since December 28, 2021, taking us one step further in our self-love journey, making golden waves, stirring up healing waters, teaching us to flow with life in a way of grace.
Jupiter is known as the great teacher, the sage. It seeks insight through experiences—fueling wisdom into our lives, bringing alchemy, opening our vision to see the magic in life. Jupiter is lifting us, enabling us to rise and remember our worth, bringing in loving supportive energy, removing any worry from our creations, giving us confidence to take a leap of faith and stay open to the process. We all want to be OK in these times. We are doing the best we can with what we have been given. Keeping our heads above water.
Just for a moment, let it all come in. The wildness of the world, the inner struggles with change, the outer reaction to things we can’t control. Just for a minute, stand in your truth and honor yourself and the community that has supported you through these times. Now, stand and let all the greatness that has happened come in—your life path changes, the lessons of what is for your highest and best, the knowing of what is not. Acknowledge it all. Celebrate it all. It’s part of our journey. Sometimes we are way up, sometimes we are midway, and sometimes we are down. The best thing to know is how often you get back up for yourself and for others again and again. Progress is all that is needed. Stop beating yourself up about the past. Blow kisses to the wind as you start to move your feet along your new path, leaving what’s behind with grace and gratitude in every step.

How to navigate your astrology forecast this week
The planet of Neptune has been mythically known to be the god of the sea, the heavens, the underworld, and the accessible flow of unconditional and universal love. Neptune energies guide us through mystic waters, giving us the feeling that we are being held by something greater than ourselves. We are at the crossroads, given the option of being led to a new path paved with peace or flowing back to the way it’s always been. Choose the path that brings you love, the path that brings you life.
Take this time to rest and listen in stillness. Remove the energy of others that might be sticking to you through your thoughts. What does your body need to nourish it back to life? What does your spirit need to reawaken your inner cheerleader? What distractions can you bring your mind back from? Take the time to find your center. Listen to the internal flow of information that your body, mind, and spirit may be offering you. Our intuition is one of our greatest resources for our creativity.
As the puzzle pieces start to come together, give yourself the gift of peace and let go of the outcome. Anchor yourself in the present. Worry and preoccupied energy prevent us from manifesting. Where your mind is, your energy goes. All our power is in the present. The moment we step into the mental game of the past or future, we experience a tremendous loss of personal power. Stress demands a lot of energy, and it fatigues the body. Everything you work against, you give more power. It’s OK if you have all the ideas but have yet to do anything. It’s OK if you are waiting for them to come. Let yourself get into a flow state. Let it flow from you and it will flow to you, everything as it is.
Nobody knows how the story ends
Live the day, doing what you can
This is only where it began
Nobody knows how the story ends
Nobody knows how the story ends.
Affirmation: I am here now. I am ready to choose a new beginning. I let life flow.
