This switchy, cosmic week comes in like a lamb and goes out like a lion. On Monday, March 17, messenger Mercury changes signs, moving into dreamy Pisces until April 7. Hello, deep thoughts. This introspective phase sends us on a voyage through the complex layers of our own subconscious minds. Say it with flowers and flowery metaphors. Mercury in poetic Pisces makes us all into mini Chaucers, and there will be plenty of Rumis running around to boot. Rather than express ourselves with words, we might prefer to paint, sew, make music. A mixtape says a thousand words.
In need of some healing? Mercury’s tour of Pisces paves the way for deep self-discovery and release. There’s no better time to ramp up a meditation practice to quiet that “monkey mind” so we can hear our inner truth. Therapists and holistic healers, have your business cards at the ready. People need your services now more than ever to mine the gold from their psyches. Ain’t no shame in lounging on the shrink’s couch or doing sessions with an energy healer over the coming three weeks. Nocturnal activity increases now so keep a dream journal on the nightstand. Some brilliant gems may rouse us from our sleep.
On Thursday, March 20 “the Spring Equinox” the stars want to hear you roar. On that day, the Sun leaves Pisces and moves into Aries, officially restarting the annual zodiac cycle. (Aries is the first sign of the twelve.) Our universal spring awakening has begun! With the Sun in the Ram’s realm until April 19, we have four weeks to make fresh starts, plant seeds, take bold initiative. Originality and authenticity score huge points now. Instead of playing follow the leader, blaze a maverick’s trail. Like Aries Lady Gaga, your daring moves will bring the “applause, applause.”
