Today at 12:15pm EST, the Sun enters Aries, marking the spring equinox in the Northern Hemisphere, and the start of the astrological new year. This is a powerful equinox because it takes place just after a powerfully resonant Pisces New Moon. Expect to feel emotionally lighter and more abundant. Take time to notice the abundance around you — it doesn’t only have to be financial. Pay attention to leaves on trees, clouds in the sky, people walking around you, your family and friends sending you loving messages. The more you show appreciation for the spiritual wealth in your life, the more you’ll manifest physical wealth too. This new season isn’t going to be 100% perfect (no season ever is). But it will be what you make it. You are being given a chance to take a deep breath and start fresh in the direction that suits you at this point in time. You can always re-route, so don’t overthink it. Just take the first step.
The sun spends its last full day in the sign of Pisces — the spring equinox will take place tomorrow (3/20) at 12:17pm, and Aries Season will begin, giving us a break from the intensely emotional vibes of Pisces Season. Mercury, the Planet of Communication, is getting ready to go retrograde in Aries on Thursday. Today is therefore about finalizing past resolutions, or getting rid of them altogether if they don’t speak to you. You may have an awakening this week that helps you realize what you really want to spend your time doing. It may be completely different than what’s expected of you, and that’s okay. If there’s one thing that Pisces Season has taught you, it’s that you have to focus on what intuitively makes sense to you, and not care about fulfilling other people’s expectations of you. Celebrate the immense progress you’ve made these past few weeks by doing something today that fulfills your personal desires.
Chiron, an asteroid that represents our inner wounds, is spending its last month in Pisces, and it has been making key alignments to the New Moon in Pisces this week. Your desire to heal past wounds is stronger than ever. Your ability to face pain and overcome it is also stronger than ever. This is one of the best times for forgiving others and letting go of grudges. That doesn’t mean you have to let people back into your life or pretend that things never happened, but it does mean you can gift yourself a new beginning where you don’t have such tight grips on experiences that pained you. If you don’t yet go to therapy, consider signing up for it in the weeks to come. If you have already been consciously working on releasing burdens, you’ll find that you make immense progress due to this New Moon. No matter where you are in your healing journey, be kind to yourself. You’ve come so far, Scorpio.
The Pisces New Moon takes place this morning in the final degrees of Pisces, helping you merge the themes of completion and rebirth all in one. You may feel like one stage of your life is completely morphing into another, and you’re in a dream world navigating your way through such transitions. A few hours later, the Moon shifts into Aries, and Mars, one of your ruling planets, shifts into Capricorn for two months. This is when you may feel motivated to set New Moon Intentions — you’ll have greater clarity in regards to what you’d like to manifest these next 6 months, and you’ll be in a mood to create more structure in your life, so that it can lead to greater freedom. You’ve made it to a major turning point, Scorpio. You’re no longer tolerating excuses. You’re being your own savior.
We’re one day away from the Pisces New Moon, making today wonderful for tying up loose ends and completing tasks that you’ve been procrastinating on. There’s no need to have a super lengthy to-do list, but be intentional about what you’d like to complete now rather than later. That way, the second half of March can be focused on your creative projects and the fresh start you’re about to offer yourself. Many of the tasks you’ve been putting off could be completed in a matter of minutes or just a few hours — it’s likely that you’ve allowed your anxiety or restlessness to get the best of you. Challenge yourself to overcome your own limiting beliefs and make progress on one or two key tasks today. Tomorrow, you’ll celebrate your newfound freedom.
We’re two days away from the Pisces New Moon, and the Moon has just entered Pisces in preparation for this celestial event. Emotions will be running high today. The little things could make you feel extra sensitive or make you cry. It’s best to just let yourself feel whatever comes up and not try to brush anything under the rug. The days before a New Moon are about clearing out the old to make room for a fresh start, so it’s a great day to clean house, literally and figuratively. Donate clothes, throw away junk, delete contacts from your phone, be more selective about who you follow on social media. Become aware of the energy you consistently consume and put out, and focus on the process of purification. You’ll feel lighter as a result.
How often do you stop and ask yourself, “what is it I really want?” Today should be one of those days for you, Scorpio. Quiet your mind by spending time alone. Play your favorite music if you’d like, or go take a walk or run. Lay in bed if you’d prefer, or take a long bath or peaceful shower. Get out your journal, or let your brain do the mental transcribing. Whichever way you decide to prioritize this self-reflection is perfectly acceptable — the key is to indulge in it. The answer to that question is much simpler than you realize, Scorpio. As the most intuitive sign of the zodiac, once you tap into your personal power by protecting your inner peace, you’ll light the way to your soul’s true desires with ease and consistency. Simply breathe and begin.
Take it easy today, as Jupiter in Scorpio aligns with the Aquarius Moon, causing a contrast between your sensitivity and your desire for emotional detachment. People around you may find you hard to read or understand, but you don’t have to spend your time trying to explain yourself to anyone right now. It’s actually better for you to just figure out what it is that you’re desiring. Pisces Season has made it easier for you to get lost in your own world, but the New Moon in Pisces this weekend will help you clarify what your dreams are and what you have to do to make them come true. Right now, we’re nearing the dark-of-the-moon period, which is best spent resting and tying up loose ends. Let your intuition guide you when it comes to any decisions you have to make, and know that it’s okay to not make any decision at all.
The Moon spends half the day in Capricorn, helping you start the work week strong. It makes an alignment to Uranus, the Planet of Surprise, this morning, helping you think of out-of-the-box solutions to recurring professional dilemmas. Then this afternoon, the Moon shifts into Aquarius for 2.5 days, and this will make you more social, eccentric, and progress-oriented. Since there will be a New Moon this weekend, it’s a good day to put finishing touches on a project you want to share with the world. Don’t let your perfectionism or fear of failure keep you from putting your best work out there, Scorpio. The longer you wait, the longer it takes. Roll up your sleeves and let your magic work for itself.
Today both of our co-rulers, Mars and Pluto, make key alignments with Uranus and the Moon respectively. You’ll feel more inspired, motivated and self-confident than usual. It’s a good day to take on a challenging task that requires long-term concentration. The fact that both the Moon and Pluto are in Capricorn highlight your need for more structure in your life. But that doesn’t have to be equated with boredom. Find ways to simplify your lifestyle by minimizing your to-do list. That means being able to ask for or accept help with a passion project, rather than trying to do it all by yourself. If you adopt this collaborative mindset, you’ll make incredible progress with your endeavors.
It may be the weekend, but the Moon’s entrance into business-oriented Capricorn will have you in a more serious and productive mood than you may have been all week. Try not to get too caught up in organizing your life away. Challenge yourself to be present and not overly focused on what’s to come. The Capricorn energy can provide greater clarity when it comes to what you’ve been avoiding, and why. Instead of beating yourself up because you think you’ve fallen behind on projects or promises, take time to evaluate if you have too much on your plate, or if you’re simply not as inspired anymore. You’re in a period where you’re outgrowing situations that you once felt quite familiar and comfortable with. This may be hard to admit at first, but as soon as you do, you can step into a reality that truly fulfills and excites you. You’re rapidly evolving, Scorpio, so don’t fight this process. Be thankful for it.
Now that Venus and Mercury are in the fiery sign of Aries, you may find yourself being bolder and more assertive in your love and social life, Scorpio. Take time today to be more direct with a friend or lover in regards to how you’re feeling, or what you’re desiring. You may be a mind-reader, but not everyone else is, so save yourself the trouble and be more transparent about what’s been on your mind. The Moon in Sag will help you do so, and you won’t be prone to overthinking things as much. At the same time, the Pisces Sun will make sure that you communicate with compassion and that you aren’t too blunt — it’s about striking a balance between speaking your truth, and still giving the other party time to process what’s being said, and to respond in an organic way. If you’ve been passive-aggressive in any relationship, Jupiter’s recent retrograde will help you check yourself and make adjustments. It’s time to clear the air, Scorpio.
