February 27 to March 6, 2014  Visible Planets: Morning: Venus, Mars, Saturn    Evening: Mercury, Jupiter

The Sun – our magnificent central star – and the Mother Earth’s sweet, silvery satellite – the Moon – come together on March 1st at 12:59 am MST @ 11º Pisces, initiating the last lunar month of our natural year.

michelangelo-creation-adam-Pisces is the 12th and last sign of the tropical zodiac. It comes at the end of winter, as days grow longer and weather shape-shifts from crystalline ice and slanting snow to transformational melts and thaws, floods and flowing waters. Rivers rise as emerging greens paint blonde and brown meadows with the colors of new life. The mutable, restless modality of Pisces arrives shrouded in mist, cloaked in snow and sleet, pregnant with rain. Gentle, rolling thunder announces the end of winter as clouded slate-grey skies follow shadows and dance in muted light. Mornings sparkle with the day’s surrender to blue. New hope, new dreams, new visions await those willing to begin again.

allie rampLast night, I attended the 2014 Telluride Aids Benefit Sneak Peek Fashion Show. Wow! What a Piscean event! Art, music, models and madness. Flirty, fun, frivolous and fancy, this magnificent creative effort and philanthropic event constellates the acceptance, compassion, surrender and service that Pisces is all about. Judgment and prejudice melt in the ethers of Oneness. We forgive ourselves and others, we recognize the beauty in diversity, the common ground upon which we all walk, upon this beautiful blue planet. Earth.

Here’s to my two little Aries/Pisces nieces – the budding models, dancers and singers – the ones who came to visit and played dress-up, danced and sang and made my world sparkle with love and light. Good job, Allie. 12 years of showing up at the Show. Life. Giving your time, energy and heart. May we all join hands and walk in beauty, peace and love.

Aries (Mar. 20-Apr.19) As we near the end of the astrological year, you may feel more introspective and reticent than you have in months. Zodiac Pisces represents the womblike gestation period prior to birth, and must be approached with respect and surrender. Take time to rest, relax and regenerate. Breathe deep, meditate, pray and prepare for rebirth.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20) The Pisces new Moon marks the beginning of the last lunar month of the natural year. As an earth-centered Bull, you are inherently in tune with Mother Nature’s seasons and cycles. Emerging spring uplifts your spirit and inspires you to get out and about. Connect with people of like mind and interest, seek out friends and explore new social options.

Gemini (May 21-June 21) Ruler Mercury goes direct the last day of February, ending a 3-week retrograde cycle in the most elevated sector of your solar chart. This served as a time to re-vision and revise belief systems, political perspectives and overall spiritual consciousness. Now it’s time to identify what inspires you and reconnect with heartfelt desires.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) The Pisces Sun and Moon join force in the wee hours of March 1st and open the door on the natural year’s last lunar month. Endings and closure are themes as you see the bigger picture of your life and relationships. Anger, vendettas and resentments do not serve any positive purpose now. Focus on forgiveness and common ground.

Leo (July 23-Aug.22) Mercury goes direct this week as both Mars and Saturn go retrograde. This translates as a rather rough and tumble energy of stop and go, come and stay; love, learn and leave. Confusion and chaos clear up regarding partners and relationships while personal desires change in shape and size. Do the inner work. Focus on self-inventories and self-care.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep.22) New Moon energy encourages fresh starts and new horizons in your most important relationships and commitments. Others are willing to show up and share the love, joy, pain and gain. Are you? Mutable signs are characteristically restless, inherently flexible and often confused. Excellent time to journal, meditate and work a program. Practice consistency.

Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22) Big news this week is the retrograde station of Mars in Libra, as it extends the customary 6-week transit of Mars through a sign to almost 8 months [12.07.13 to 07.26.14]. Good news is that you are being provided with plenty of time to retrofit, revision and redesign love and desire, work on personal agendas and pursue what you really want. Good luck!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) Serious Saturn, Master Teacher and Lord of Karma, goes retrograde in Scorpio this week and remains so until mid-July. Smile and relax, this translates as an extremely potent and powerful time to re-evaluate the metamorphic life journey you’ve been on since early October 2102. And no better time to begin than on a Pisces new Moon. Connect with spirit.

Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 20) You may feel pushed and pulled, dazed and confused as three planets change direction within 3 days of the March 1st Pisces New Moon. Exchange, replace and remove are keywords as people, places and things must adjust to crashing waves and shifting tides. Focus on the freedom of uncertainty, the ever-expanding Universe. You’re good at this, go with the flow.

Capricorn (Dec. 21-Jan. 19) Ruler Saturn goes retrograde in Saturn shortly following the solar and lunar conjunction of the Pisces New Moon. This translates as an extended period of review, re-evaluation and re-vision of your highest hopes, most cherished dreams and aspirations. All is good; you know that knowing what you want is the first step of manifestation. Take your time.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Messenger trickster Mercury resumed forward motion in Aquarius on the last day of February, ending a 3-week period of personal re-evaluation and review. The days of extended rest and relaxation have ended, now you face several months of action and productivity. It’s time to return to work, and your ready. Embrace the moment, be here now.

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20) Take a good long look at the road of life as it shimmers and glimmers before you. This is your birth month and the time is now. As the magical conjunction of a Pisces new Moon infuses you with starlight, take time to make a wish and count your blessings. Gratitude is the road to grace and you are on it. Congratulations on another revolution around the Sun!
