Love is the magnetic force as we approach the astrological end of the year and shift in a new direction in Aries. As we begin connecting the dots, synchronicities start to make more sense, potential begins to be more realized, and we are pulled to make major moves to better our lives.

An astrological ending and a beginning

This last week of Piscean energy opens the gates to a new way of life, helping us shift our feelings of uncertainty into inspired leaps of action and faith. It entices us with the message, “You want that good life, I’ll take you there.” We’ve made it through the ruts, gone down those hard roads, we’ve made it through the graveyard, through the darkness to the dawn, we are here, approaching the door to self-mastery.

Since February 18, the sun has been in the deeply empathetic sign of Pisces, where it has been lighting up our inner knowing, helping us navigate our intuitive seas, and stirring up deep self-trust in what we cannot yet see. The sun remains in the sign of Pisces until March 20, the Spring Equinox, the astrological new year when we shift into Aries. This change doses us with sweet surrender, healing our salty wounds and breathing big love into our lives.

The Pisces new Moon last week, on March 2, provoked purging of grief and guilt, giving us freedom to move into the new year with a clean slate, offering us the gift of finding love inside, opening us up to the messages that will guide us to lift our vibrations higher, and reminding us that how we spend our time and energy remains our number one priority.

Good vibes from Mars and Venus

Giving us the gift of safe love, Mars and Venus are conjunct on March 6, when they are both in the sign of Aquarius. This is when we break the chains, tear down the walls, and come out of our fear and into love. Aquarius is considered the joiner, always seeking to bring us together in community, changing our perspective to look at things from a different angle. With the combined energies of these planets, there is a felt sense of being loved and cared for as we take the time to listen to the inner voice of wisdom and choose love to help the medicine go down. This gets us to step into the full power of who we are, cheering us on to practice kindness and letting us drop our worries in exchange for the opportunity to experience more pleasure and love. We got that inner glow of woke and are ready to take our life to the next level.

Our heart is getting a workout. We are tasked with taking the work deeper within. We are breaking open at the heart center to appreciate the beauty in life, to bring the beauty to life.

Take a few deep breaths. Let the inhalations inspire new energy to fill your lungs, signaling to our bodies a renewal, and let the exhalations release the tensions from tasks, let it all go just for a moment, let the peace come in, let the peace flow out.

People all over the world, you don’t need no money
Join hands, come on
Start a love train, love train, don’t need no ticket, come on
People all over the world, join in, ride this train
Join in ride this train, y’all
Start a love train, come on, train, love train

Our intuition is a felt sense through our body. It is felt the deepest through the heart. When we have work or family troubles, friend or lovers quarrels, human or animal parental guilt, we feel it in the heart. If we leave something in pain, we cannot find peace. Mars and Venus inspire us to radiate the power of love and forgiveness at the same time, adjusting our relationships, weeding out the unnecessary, nudging us to seek out those that bring harmony, joy, and good vibes to our life.

How to navigate the week ahead

Let go and let the magic begin. Walk forward with courage and confidence as your shield. Walk with the assurance that life is for you. The flow of life is rich with abundance, joy, and peace. Be patient with the process. Don’t give up on yourself. Go the distance. Your vision will become clear when you look into your own heart. Let the layers of the heart open to be the love in every room, every place, felt by everyone everywhere you go. Untie the knots and set yourself free.

Life is short. Practice self-forgiveness as a way to let yourself be cleared of the remnants of what you deem to be your imperfections, moments of regret, the should’ves and would’ves. Give yourself the gift of grace. Choose peace in every moment. Remain peaceful in your inner spirit. Use love, kindness, and generosity to light up the joy in the lives of others.
