A Few Words about Pisces
You, dear Pisces, are the intuitive nerve ending of the Zodiac. If it exists, you feel it; if it doesn’t appear real to others, you feel it anyway.
It’s far easier to live with a Piscean than to be one. Your Neptunian ability to tap into the subtle dimensions of the Universe means you feel the thought forms of everyone around you. Like a Star Trek empath, you can feel the emotional undercurrent of the world and all those in it, which can make you feel like a compassionate punching bag. This double-edged sword of a gift makes you a brilliant visionary and capable of translating your magnificent, private dream world into art, letters, theatre, and music that could make the Muses sigh with envy. But, it also makes your heart an easy pin cushion for the slings and arrows that bounce off less sensitive natures.
You are blessed with two splendid rulers: Neptune, the planet of dreams and the unconscious, and Jupiter, the gift-giving planet of generosity and expansion. You bring benevolence to others and your kindly, tender emotions incline you towards wanting to better the lot of humanity with altruistic generosity.
You are said to be the least selfish sign of the Zodiac, but, despite your patience and forbearance, if someone finally manages to push your buttons, you can be surprisingly aggressive and will probably cross the offender off your list of friends forever.
Everyday, ordinary life is really too mundane for you; besides, your fantasies are so much better. So, rose colored glasses are a pretty permanent accessory that helps you put off the practical and dreary details until the last possible moment forces you back to reality. Your legendary procrastination is of cosmic proportion!
You Can Imagine Yourself
Your sensitivity of soul makes you softly vulnerable, so your challenges have mostly to do with not losing your directional signals in the confluence of other pushier signs…and not being so crushed by reality that you retreat into la-la land or chemical relief.
You can take heart from the knowledge that your Piscean gifts of intuition, inspiration, and psychism can give birth to brilliance in the arts, photography, film, theatre, music, dance, or any other endeavor in which emotion-based creativity is the benchmark of genius. A great many Pisceans have used their Neptunian communion with the unseen as a launchpad toward the stars.
Pisces This March
The planets love you this month, but you must own your gifts to reap the rewards! This is no time to be a wallflower or reticent in any way about your considerable capabilities. Unbeknownst to you, people have seen your talents, and this will pay off shortly. Deep healing of old wounds is also in progress, so you can make the most of these blessings now. People will invest in you if you tweak your current projects just a little. Opportunity is pounding on your door! Saturn is urging you to dare moving in new directions, to follow your dreams, and to believe they can come true for you. The New Moon on the 6th gives you the energy to press ahead with newfound confidence.

March Insights for the Rest of the Zodiac:
March 21 to April 20
Breathing room recharges you on the 2nd, preparing the way for everything to intensify and vibrate starting on March 6, when Uranus leaves your sign where it has been causing disruptions since 2010! Brilliant aspects on the 20th bring the opportunities you desire (even though results must wait for the 28th to become clear). If you feel overwhelmed by all the work and opportunities that are now available, take a step back to breathe! Resist the voice in your head urging you to escape the frustration and irritation of it all; this is just part of a process that won’t show its success until the end of the month. 2019 has all the earmarks of being a great and memorable year for you.
Best days: 8, 9, 20 Challenging days: 21, 22
April 21 to May 21
Venus and Mars conspire this month to help you accomplish whatever you turn your hand to. However, Mercury, the planet of the mind and all communications, is dragging its feet til the end of the month, and this may make you cranky and unwilling to consider other people’s opinions as useful. Try not to be combative. Mercury is retrograde from March 5 to 28, so use this time for soul searching and catching up on loose ends. Many good things are happening, they’re just taking longer than you wish.
Best days: 10, 11 Challenging days: 23, 24
May 22 to June 21
The combo platter of Mercury retrograde from the 5th to the 28th and Uranus moving into Taurus on the 6th can make you feel confused and off your game. It’s an unfamiliar feeling for you, so it overwhelms; but truth is, all will be well by the 21st, after which nothing can hold you back. A word to the wise: Don’t make career or investment decisions until Mercury is out of retrograde as you really won’t be thinking too clearly til then. Just duck and cover for this weird-feeling month and wait for a change in the weather, so your public self can shine again.
Best days: 12, 13, 14 Challenging days: 25, 26
June 22 to July 22
Dare to dream in March, dear Cancerian! Dare to follow your whims and to believe in yourself again. This confidence has been a long time in coming. You may feel as if you’re being hit by an internal earthquake (or maybe a tsunami because you’re a Cardinal Water sign!) Truth is, big change is in the air for you now, a new path opens, and you’ll reconsider pretty much everything about life from top to bottom. Put your ideas into play on the 21st and whatever you do, don’t put the brakes on. Embrace the rollercoaster and enjoy the wild ride. It’s taking you where you wish to go.
Best days: 15, 16 Challenging days: 1, 2, 27, 28, 29
July 23 to August 23
Uranus in Taurus has you feeling uncharacteristically out of control, not a favorite feeling for you, I know. But, March is full of promise, so don’t despair; finances and creativity get a big boost if you just keep on going, even when the situation looks confusing or totally untethered. You don’t have to embrace change by turning your life upside down, but you do have to know that big change is happening and that it’s just another name for growth.
Best days: 17, 18 Challenging days: 3, 4, 30, 31
August 24 to September 23
Change is happening, bigtime! Resistance is futile, so stop being stubborn (I know it’s hard) and think of it as opportunity-on-steroids. Take a risk or two. Newly hatched plans may take a while to chirp their way to the surface, but by month’s end there will be rewards. Because of Mercury being retrograde for three weeks of this month, every sign feels stymied in some way, so discipline yourself to relax and try to use the down time to smooth out the relationship bumps that probably happened in February.
Best: 19, 20 Challenging: 5, 6, 7
September 24 to October 23
Life appears convoluted now, especially in finance. You need all the facts and probably have to act like a detective to get them, but that’s all to the good. This month, the more you know, the better the outcome. The Full Moon on the 21st will help you launch new plans, and Mercury, when it goes direct on the 28th, clears the way for all those wild and wonderful ideas you’ve been flooded with lately. Choose the one with the most potential (don’t scattergun), and you may be surprised by the great results.
Best days: 21, 22 Challenging days: 8, 9
October 24 to November 22
I know this is stunning advice for one of your inclination, but just have fun in March! Let your imagination rule the day. You’ve been feeling you were carrying the weight of the world for a while, so you need a vacation from obligation! Now’s the time for it. Joint ventures and creative ventures may call out for your attention and be highly rewarding, but, other than enjoying that success, give yourself unwinding time (just don’t be a spendthrift while you’re busy unwinding, because there’s real potential for that in March.)
Best days: 23, 24 Challenging days: 10, 11
November 22 to December 22
There’s BIG and positive change in the wind for you, and jolly Jupiter is optimizing your optimism and nudging you toward heightened happiness. How’s that for a gift from heaven? You may feel a bit overwhelmed by it all, dear heart, so take a deep breath, assess the change, and realize what a great gift it is from the gods of chance! Push the limits on the 21st Full Moon, then set back and enjoy the results of your boldness after the 28th.
Best days: 21, 25, 26 Challenging days: 12, 13, 14
December 23 to January 20
You can shift a project from good to great this month. Forget vagueness and go for clarity and truth; you can’t go wrong with that. The results will not be immediate, mind you. You’ll have to wait for Mercury to go direct on the 28th; but, once it does, you should see a whoosh of energy and know you’re moving forward again. Keep impatience in check and communicate clearly, because, with Mercury in retrograde most of the month, everybody is topsy-turvy and misunderstandings can happen easily. Don’t let them gum up the works.
Best days: 1, 2, 27, 28, 29 Challenging days: 15, 16
January 21 to February 19
Venus is showing you off in your best light this March, so everybody absolutely adores you! And a good thing that is, as Uranus enters Taurus on March 6 and stays for seven years, disrupting, bringing change, and making life a rollercoaster ride for all signs. So focus on things that affect your fortunes, and try to get an overview; then, prepare for adventure because, as they say, Man plans and God laughs. Fortunately, you’ll find it all invigorating as well as unpredictable and illuminating, and these are your favorite states of being!
