You have come to expect respect for the hard work you do. However, lately you have been feeling as if you have outgrown your assigned duties and are beginning to feel confined by them. It’s very difficult for a person with as much energy as you to feel you are not being challenged by the circumstances around you. Despite this frustration, the New Moon (a solar eclipse) on the 9th reveals how much more development actually needs to be done and if you step up to the plate, you will soon see fresh opportunities. Your help and assistance is needed and if you can show tolerance and patience, you will begin to visualise a pathway forward. By the time of the Full Moon (a penumbral lunar eclipse) on the 23rd, all will begin to be much clearer and you will feel far more energized, useful and more confident of the important role you are meant to play.
Relationships with other people can cause everyone concern but this month, you will be putting a lot of time and energy into analyzing just what these unions can offer. It may seem enormously appealing to be critical and over-analytical of the people who are close to you and the temptation might be to cut off ties to those who you think are not good for you. Before you burn bridges, stop and consider what you can offer to them. The New Moon (a solar eclipse) on the 9th shows a fresh start into how you can help friends and associations without feeling as if you are the one who continually does all the giving. The Full Moon (a penumbral lunar eclipse) on the 23rd reveals your key role in helping others to understand themselves and in return, help you feel both useful and more fulfilled as a person.
Emotions? What are these. . .things? Although you may have lived your life pretending you are somehow above feelings, this month there is every chance you will be overwhelmed by them. They’re everywhere and they will find you. You’ll be shaken, stirred and utterly perplexed by your reactions to circumstances that have never particularly held your attention before. The New Moon (a solar eclipse) on the 9th March will mark the beginning of a braver—and more sensitive—you. There are a lot of sentiments you have simply shoved aside and have refused to face up to. As unfamiliar as this may seem, this is all a part of your life plan—and to continue to ignore how you feel will mean you will be missing out on the chance to truly understand why you are on this planet. The Full Moon (a penumbral lunar eclipse) on the 23rd March is the time when you realize you may have been thinking on a very limited basis. There’s a lot for you to do and discover if you can just tackle the deeper stuff.
You have an awful lot to say and not all of it is good (but a lot of it is!). However, you are pretty fed up with containing your emotions for the benefit of other people. Of course, you have every right to speak what is on your mind but you equally need to be aware of the long term consequences: not everyone is prepared to trail behind your emotional wake. The New Moon (a solar eclipse) on the 9th March puts huge concentration on your need to consider long term plans, educational opportunities and your spiritual quest. You have an abundance of intellectual curiosity and it must be satisfied. The Full Moon (a penumbral lunar eclipse) on the 23rd indicates it may time to put away childish ambitions and get serious: you have a lot to think about—and perhaps write about—and isn’t it time you did so? The only way to get your message out is by being a little more pushy.
There is a lot going on beneath the surface and that makes you distinctly uncomfortable. You may prefer to have everything out in the open but that’s just not the way things are going to operate this month. Dodgy deals, covert actions and mysterious people who are backward in coming forward will only delve deeper with confrontation so there’s no point in getting over-analytical. The New Moon (a solar eclipse) on the 9th indicates fresh financial opportunities that may seem too good to be true—and in fact, time may prove your hunch to be correct. Be very careful what you agree to and always read the fine print before you sign anything, even if it all seems safe and sound. The Full Moon (a penumbral lunar eclipse) on the 23rd means lots of fresh evidence will come to light but at least you will be able to see what it is you are dealing with—and whether or not you want to continue.
Relationships need your attention this month. Who is draining your time and energy? And speaking of energy, you have a lot of it but over confidence in your abilities can leave you craving for peace and quiet in a darkened room. The New Moon (a solar eclipse) on the 9th indicates a good time to cultivate relationships with people who are sensitive to the needs of others. It may feel as if the world has gone completely mad and there are no places to hide from the craziness. The Full Moon (a penumbral lunar eclipse) on the 23rd signals a time when you feel you need to begin concentrating on financial dealings with other people: signing contracts and making investments and other commitments are all things that might attract—and hold—your attention.
You’ve been pushing yourself very hard lately and it doesn’t help that you are not as organized as you’d like to be. The first week of March is a good time to have an honest look at your health regime and to make adjustments accordingly. The New Moon (a solar eclipse) on the 9th marks a time when you may feel more tired than usual or may feel you just can’t keep up with all the action. A good clear out is in order to allow you to have a clean slate so you can concentrate on the important things. The Full Moon (a penumbral lunar eclipse) on the 23rd indicates a time when you can view relationships with opened eyes and honesty. There are times when you feel taken advantage of by some people and it really is a good opportunity to decide whether or not you what such people in your life. Do remember that is you want something from someone it is better to ask rather than to assume they know what you want.
This month is a great time to surprise people with your creativity. Like a big kid, you have a need to get messy—and of course get everyone else messy in the process. For very long time your playfulness has not had the chance to see the light of day so do make time to enjoy it. The New Moon (a solar eclipse) on the 9th is a great time to begin or re-commit to a romantic venture. It is also a chance to reflect on past mistakes and to heal any past misunderstandings. The Full Moon (a penumbral lunar eclipse) on the 23rd is the time to focus on putting the best foot forward by setting up new routines aimed at clearing time and space for greater adventures. There’s so much to do but whether or not you enjoy them very much depends on how well you plan for the future. Take time out to make your to do list.
Careful plans that are executed with precision and great timing are nearly impossible to do. But yet luck is on your side. Although things may not go exactly as planned, it is important for you to concentrate on the positives. Perhaps think about how badly they could have gone if you weren’t paying careful attention. The New Moon (a solar eclipse) on the 9th indicates the beginning of a time when you feel more and more confident with your skills and abilities. Whilst this should be a good thing, you have the potential to get a little over confident and take crazy risks. Keep things in perspective. There’s a fine balance. The Full Moon (a penumbral lunar eclipse) on the 23rd is time for reflecting on your friendship groups and for making plans on how to network with others. It is time you united forces with others for the benefit of all.
There are lots of things you would like to be getting on with but your attention in drawn to fixing all the things that are not working the way you would like them to. Which essentially means your bogged down in nitty-gritty details instead of making strides in far more important areas in your life. The New Moon (a solar eclipse) on the 9th indicates a time for you to begin reflecting on how you communicate with others: are people listening to you and if they are, are they remembering the important messages. Do remember that you will be attracting sensitive people this month so take extra care in the manner in which you get your communications across. The Full Moon (a penumbral lunar eclipse) on the 23rd is the time you can be more forthright in expressing what it is that you truly want–and you can expect a short, sharp answer to your request.
For some time your finances (or lack of them) have been a sore point in your life and it has been hard for you to decide between playing it safe or taking a risk. Part of the reason for this confusion is because you just haven’t been able to make the right connections to the right people. But has it ever occurred to you that you are expecting too much from the wrong people? The New Moon (a solar eclipse) on the 9th is the time to take networking a little more seriously: there’s just no point in having so many useless contacts who will never amount to anything. The Full Moon (a penumbral lunar eclipse) on the 23rd is a time when carefully thought out questions will yield very revealing (and surprising) answers to problems that have been troubling you. A little word of caution: if you don’t ask, you won’t get answers.
It’s all action and you’re about the only sign of the zodiac that can cope with it all. Whilst everyone else is lost at sea, you can successfully navigate the confusion and difficulties by using your intuition to pinpoint the right people for the clean up that needs to happen. And that means dear, sweet, gentle Pisces that you need to step up to the plate and guide the rest of us to safety. That’s right: this month you are playing the rescuer. The New Moon (a solar eclipse) on the 9th marks the beginning of a time when you can no longer be a casual observer and must become an active participant. That might sound a little scary but if you don’t do it, no one else will. The Full Moon (a penumbral lunar eclipse) on the 23rd is when your hard work and determination to follow through with your plans begins to pay off: others will see what you are capable of and will want you on their side. Don’t give in no matter how difficult things seem to be (and don’t let anyone distract you either).
