The Pisces new moon on St. Patrick's Day could have us feeling somewhat insecure. It may not be as difficult as we are imagining. We may simply be anticipating the worst, when it may actually take a positive spin. With Mars on the Anaretic Degree of Sagittarius, we feel tense and uneasy as it is square to the new moon. At the same time, Jupiter retrograde in Scorpio is trine to the new moon. There are ample opportunities available to us to turn this into a productive day. On the other hand, if we get too inebriated on green spirits in celebration of the day, we may end up regretting our decisions. This day will challenge our ability to manage with moderation. The best way to approach this day is to be empathetic, or at the very least, imagine what it might be like for the other individual that we are encountering. Don't let anger ruin the day.
Mercury in Aries tends to cause our thoughts to race faster than usual. Mercury's conjunction with Venus might open the door to financial regard. A quick call, or an email to the right person has the potential to save us money, or lead us to a new monetary resource. Just don't expect it to arrive on the doorstep without consequences. Saturn in Capricorn is square to Mercury and Venus. There will be an expectation associated with the new resources. Don't ignore that piece of the equation.
Mercury will station retrograde on March 23, lasting until April 15. Any plans that we may have involving contracts, negotiations, or even finishing up our taxes, likely should be completed before March 23, to avoid the misery of an oversight or mistake in computations.
Mars in Sagittarius is trine to Uranus in Aries. This connection can increase our energy levels for a few days. Don't let it burn you out. We still need rest and relaxation to enjoy the boost of vitality.
Jupiter retrograde in Scorpio is forming a sextile to Pluto in Capricorn. This may spur our interest to explore subjects that we felt were too complex in the past.
The influences from this chart could leave us feeling lopsided. There is the potential of extreme highs and lows, as we may feel super invigorated for a period, then, suddenly, dealing with the depths of despair. Breathe deeply to help move through the various emotions of the day. All the tools we will need to make good choices will be at our disposal, if we listen to our instincts and don't over indulge. Accept responsibility for the decisions made, and seek out positive ways to fix the mistakes.
