This last week of win­ter is a mixed and volatile time. It brings vi­sion with en­ergy, il­lu­sions with a punch — and a touch of spring fever.

De­pres­sion can whis­per to us in the shad­ows, and our words have con­se­quence as Mer­cury in imag­i­na­tive Pisces con­juncts in­tu­itive Nep­tune and squares taskmas­ter Saturn. So no­tice the mind’s ten­dency to wan­der to­ward the shad­ows and to dwell on use­less­ness or just how com­pli­cated the sit­u­a­tion truly is and how much work it might take to get where we need to go.

Mer­cury in sen­si­tive Pisces also brings gifts — it can leave us po­etic and mag­i­cal. Our in­tu­ition is strong, and so is our imag­i­na­tion and abil­ity to be in­spired. But it can also make it dif­fi­cult to stay within bound­aries, and it leaves us hun­gry for an es­cape or prone to feel­ing like a vic­tim — all peak­ing on St. Pa­trick’s Day. En­joy the magic and the buzz of col­lec­tive cel­e­bra­tions, but watch out for ac­ci­dents and ar­gu­ments ex­ac­er­bated by al­co­hol or melt­ing wa­ters. This as­pect can also tempt us to in­dulge in the illusion that some­one else is to blame and that the prob­lem will be solved if we can get that some­one out of the way. Or maybe a new and fiery ro­mance will solve the prob­lem. Mars is in fierce Aries and still con­juncts Uranus, leav­ing us feisty and bel­liger­ent if pushed.

Most as­trologers con­sider Fri­day the 13th aus­pi­cious, but this one may come close to living up to its quirky public rep­u­ta­tion. It starts with a cheer­ful whirl, as the Sagittarius moon trines Uranus, Mars, and Venus in Aries. Fresh ideas and spon­ta­neous mo­ments laced with hu­mor al­low us to reach out and make new con­nec­tions — we just have to watch the ac­ci­dent-prone en­ergy and move with mind­ful­ness. A Capricorn moon over the week­end brings a more work­man­like at­ti­tude. Next week be­gins more col­lec­tively un­der an Aquarius moon. Let’s catch up with our emo­tions in the last few days of win­ter un­der a sen­si­tive Pisces moon.

Fri­day, March 13: The morn­ing is for­tu­nate and en­er­gized with im­pulsec­on­trol prob­lems. We’ll need to watch where we’re go­ing; then we can dance with en­ergy. The af­ter­noon is serendip­i­tous. We want to feel free of some heavy bur­den we’ve been car­ry­ing lately. Make tonight the week­end’s so­cia­ble mo­ment. Satur­day, March 14: A moody Capricorn moon can help us chan­nel dis­con­tent into re­pairs or learn­ing new skills. Tonight, we need sup­port, which we can find in old friends. Sun­day, March 15: We may be tempted to judge our­selves or oth­ers this morn­ing as the Capricorn moon con­juncts Pluto and squares Mars. We blame oth­ers for an ex­is­ten­tial lone­li­ness as the moon con­juncts Pluto. But that is not the point. We feel more in con­trol if we get or­ga­nized — but don’t even try to con­trol oth­ers. Keep healthy bound­aries. Mon­day, March 16: Even though our tails may be twitchy this morn­ing, we need to get it to­gether and find a way to bal­ance the needs of our group, team, or fam­ily with those of our own. Tues­day, March 17: Happy St. Pa­trick’s Day! It’s a good day for col­lec­tive fun un­der a friendly Aquarius moon . Just know that the en­ergy is com­bustible — find safe ways to cel­e­brate. Wed­nes­day, March 18: Walk gen­tly and work around emo­tional and phys­i­cal hang­overs. We can feel flooded eas­ily this morn­ing un­der the dark of the moon in Pisces. Thurs­day, March 19: The en­ergy is sen­si­tive and brash — honor raw feel­ings. We need to process feel­ings, but must be care­ful of the con­se­quences. An eclipse early to­mor­row morn­ing pre­cip­i­tates end­ings and be­gin­nings.
