Eclipses bring activation and transformation and can sometimes be experienced in a tumultuous way. February has been fairly calm compared to the excitement in store for us this month. Our first eclipse happens next week on March 8 with a new moon in Pisces.
The moon will move from Scorpio to Sagittarius, Capricorn, and Aquarius this week. Mercury, the planet of the mind, moves from Aquarius to Pisces and Mars, the planet of action, enters Sagittarius. Springtime is trying to assert itself as the light continues to wax in this hemisphere. Have a good week.
