Today’s Planet Waves FM [play episode here] is dedicated to Venus retrograde in Aries. Eric considers the difference between me and you, you and me, and the phenomenon of projection that makes it hard to tell the difference. He describes casting off the toxic glamour of our times and going deeper into your true reality. This week’s musical guest is Lou Reed, who would have been 75 on March 2.

If Your Birthday is March 1
(The Day of Artistic Sensibilities) | Pisces Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You may be more psychically and emotionally sensitive to others today. If you’re in a position to help people — whether individually or as part of a group — you can use your deeper understanding of them to beneficial, empathetic effect. On the other hand, you might find that this enhanced awareness is energetically overwhelming. Retreating into meditation, deep study or similar could help; and daydreams may be calling your name. Beware of substances, however; the ‘escape’ they seem to promise could be harder to control.
Written in the Planets
Today the Sun is conjunct Neptune in Pisces. You’ve likely been feeling its effects for at least a week, and will continue to for the next week or so. The ego-dissolving property of this aspect is great for any kind of service work, creativity and getting under the surface of things. However, its downside can be a tendency to “color and shade the truth,” as astrologer Isabel Hickey has put it. It’s one thing to dream; it’s another thing to buy into those dreams; and it’s yet another thing still to disregard demonstrable facts in favor of fantasies and half-truths. Watch your honesty level with yourself. Ceres in Taurus trine Juno in Capricorn offer some earthy grounding. Your body does not lie about what makes it feel good.
