When the Sun meets Neptune in Pisces this month, we may experience some confusion about personal identity issues as our imaginations will be overactive at this time. Starting on the 2nd, many will experience a tug of war between relationship development and personal growth. Know that you don’t have to choose between these two as they work together. On March 5th, Venus enters a six-week retrograde period in Aries. At this time, we’re encouraged to reflect on how we can take a more active role in self care and self love, especially with activities that energize us. The Virgo Full Moon on March 12th may illuminate matters related to health, work or service. Following this, the emphasis returns to personal development and we are encouraged to discuss budding ideas with others, knowing that feedback from personal and structural relationships may help push our personal development efforts to the next level. On March 27th the Aries New Moon helps to solidify the acts of self love we incorporate into our personal experience, and inspires us to set concrete goals for personal development.
