Planet Waves AM/FM Live | The Next Generation: Those Kids Born 2000+
In tonight’s live Planet Waves AM/FM show on Radio Kingston, Eric will focus on the astrology of the young people finally moving the needle on gun control: what you might call post-millennials, born after 2000. This astrology contains two conjunctions that represent steps forward: the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in Taurus, and Chiron and Pluto in Sagittarius.
Initiative, Review, and You
Although there’s a significant concentration of bodies in Pisces this week, the focus shifts to other signs for the main events — specifically, Aries (planets changing sign) and Scorpio (Jupiter’s retrograde). You may notice a shift in tone, tempo or orientation as a result.
Early in the week, Mercury and Venus both leave Pisces and enter Aries on Tuesday. Mercury makes its move at 2:34 am EST (7:34 UTC), and Venus follows suit at 6:45 pm EST (23:45 UTC).
At its most basic, this nudges emotions, thought processes and communication into more impulsive, inventive and enthusiastic (or possibly reactive) territory.
You might find that you need to make a little more effort to sustain your concentration at times, or to put yourself in another’s shoes and offer some empathy. Yet with several notable planets and the Sun still swimming in Pisces, there’s a natural softening and stabilizing influence to keep things balanced. We’ll be getting some good Aries initiative to pair with the dreamy visioning Pisces is so famous for — and that can be a recipe for getting really interesting things done.
Yet there’s another dimension to Mercury and Venus entering Aries: they’re landing on the Aries Point — that hot little parcel of zodiac real estate that connects your personal experience with that of the collective (such as through politically charged events and issues).
Not only that, but Mercury and Venus make aspects to three minor planets that have featured prominently in Eric’s Art of Becoming annual readings: Salacia in Aries, and Pholus and Quaoar in Capricorn.

If Your Birthday is March 5
(The Day of Heaven and Hell) | Pisces Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Your earning capacity is far beyond what you believe, particularly if you do that Pisces thing and choose professional activities that fully align with your principles. You of all people were born to do the right thing, in a way that has impact. That’s not always easy in our world, but like playing the harp, it’s a lot easier if you practice every day.
|Current Pisces Weekly Horoscope
Your chart is still reverberating from last week’s Full Moon in your opposite sign Virgo. The Sun is now at the midpoint of Pisces, and is still close to Neptune, which is providing you with energy and motivation.
|Current Pisces Monthly Horoscope
You’re probably getting the message to up your game on the financial front, though the first thing to remember about finances is that they’re connected to everything. In astrology there are two houses connected to the money that you earn.
Written in the Planets
The Moon enters Scorpio this morning, commencing a round of harmonious aspects to the group of planets in Pisces. This will likely be an excellent time to pay attention to your intuition, or to explore more deeply into any emotional issue that’s been nagging at you. With so much water sign activity, though, be careful to keep in sight of land. An aspect pattern later tonight between the Moon, Saturn and Nessus may be of use in bringing you back to a more practical space, should you need it.
