The Sun's transit through Pisces during most of March traces the path of dreams, but the question of which kind of dreams—beautiful visions or horrific nightmares—must give us pause. Pisces is the sign of faith, and this month transiting Jupiter in Capricorn enlarges our faith but in practical, purposeful, and embodied ways.
The Sun's conjunction to Neptune in Pisces March 8 views ambiguous situations with rose-colored glasses, but the Full Virgo Moon March 9 reveals choices which must be made with analytical discernment, not by ignoring red flags. The Pisces Sun's sextile to Jupiter in Capricorn March 11, followed by Mars sextile to Neptune March 14 and the sextile of the Pisces Sun to Capricorn-based Pluto and Saturn March 14 and 19 reminds us that what dreams may come must give us pause. Is our dream for the improvement of society, or is it a dystopian nightmare? Is it a doable dream or just fairy stardust sprinkled in the sky? Capricorn has zero tolerance for fairy dust; what can't be used to build something useful and concrete has no value in this Capricorn-dominant worldview, which is the theme of 2020.
The Sun crosses the Vernal Equinox into Aries March 20, and Mars, ruler of Aries, conjuncts Jupiter in Capricorn, squaring his own sign, followed by Mars conjunct Pluto and Saturn on the 23 and 31 respectively. Aggressive authoritarian efforts from the top down to structure, organize, control, and dominate others are stepped up, and efforts to vigorously resist these efforts are equally empowered. What dreams may come must give us pause, but the month of March may be the pause that refreshes prior to the onset of ideological warfare that begins in earnest come April. Drink deeply from the sparkling wellsprings of faith while you still can.
