New Moon in Pisces; Mercury Enters Aries

Mercury changes signs, entering Aries, on Sunday, March 26. The planet of Rational Thinking, Making Choices, Communications, The Media, etc. now enters the sign of the Pioneer, Independence, Adventure, Creativity, etc. The result is a New Way to Think about things and New Ways for Solving Problems. Mercury joins up with Mars, already transiting in this sign. Mars the planet of Fast Action and Aggression, combined with Mercury = Fast-moving Events, Rash Decisions, Argument. The combination breaks up when Mars leaves Aries on April 12. Mercury is slowing down in its progress in the zodiac, in preparation to going Retrograde, on April 9. Due to its retrograde period, Mercury will remain in Aries until June 3.
The New Moon will be on Monday, March 27, @ 13 deg Pisces. This begins the Hindu Lunar month Chaitra, named for the nakshatra Chitra, where the Full Moon falls, on April 11. This is considered an auspicious lunar month; in some traditions it is regarded as the Vedic New Year. This lunation will be conjunct Retrograde Venus, which is only 4 degrees away. Therefore the coming lunar month puts emphasis on the significations of Retrograde Venus: The planet of Values "backwards," making people doubt the Value of things. It's also the planet of Compromise & Agreement, going in reverse, which makes Agreement difficult to Achieve. Venus ends its retrograde period on April 15.
