We begin the month of March with the Sun, Venus and Neptune all in the sign of Pisces. Empathy, Compassion and the desire to help others are common expressions of Pisces energy. Neptune is the ruling planet of Pisces and symbolizes our emotional desire to connect with the spiritual realm. This connection can be facilitated by meditation, prayer and other forms of spiritual practice.
If, however, we choose to use this energy for personal pleasure or gain we may be tempted to deceive others, indulge in alcohol, drugs and develop addictions to sensual pleasure.
