If you want it, go after it.
On February 28th, the Sun in Pisces will sextile Mars in Taurus, amplifying our energy and helping us take that step in a new direction. But what does Sun-Mars sextile mean for our zodiac signs and love horoscope?
Well, a sextile in astrology is when two planets are within 60 degrees of one another, and create a very positive and beneficial aspect that encourage or help us with a certain area of our lives. Sextiles are also building blocks, reaping what we have previously sown, so the work we have put in during the past will start to pay off around this time.
There will be a lot of very strong energy, sometimes seen as masculine, but which exists within each of us. It’s a time when we must make the most of what we are feeling.
Don’t talk yourself out of ideas or desires. This energy is here for a reason and will be significant, as this is the only Sun-Mars sextile until 2020! The energies will likely last through Pisces season, but don’t put off something for tomorrow or believe that it’s an opportunity that will still be there; this transit is one that favors the brave and decisive.
The Sun represents our sense of self and how we not only feel about ourselves, but also how we represent our true identity to others and what qualities we align with who we are. Depending upon what sign the Sun is transiting through, we are asked to pay attention to specific areas of our thoughts or lives.
In this case, the Sun is moving through the watery sign of Pisces, a deep and emotional water sign that will usually have us feeling our feelings — something we’re not always comfortable or willing to do.
Our hearts are deep, and our emotions are complex, as we’ve learned that life is never black and white. Rather, we all exist within various shades of grey.
The Sun in Pisces makes us feel more, regardless of who we are, and even the most pragmatic or logical of signs will suddenly feel their hearts blossoming within their chests and will start to think more about what it all means.
The fish is a very intense sign that values unconditional love above all else, deep connections, and a profound sense of spirituality. So, for us to move through Pisces season, even if not a fellow water sign, means that these things that are always on a fish’s mind will suddenly become on ours too.
This means we’re going to be thinking more deeply, more emotional, and will likely realize that we might have erected some emotional blocks over Sagittarius or even Aquarius season that helped prevent us from feeling what was inconvenient or uncomfortable. But Pisces Season is here, and with it, that means we are going to feel, whether we want to or not.
It’s also a time for us to really come to a deeper level of understanding within ourselves, which is where Mars comes in.
Mars is the planet of action and ambition, one that normally is ruled by Aries and goes full force after whatever it is he wants. Mars doesn’t doubt, doesn’t second guess or even overthink, and while perhaps his methods could be more brash, he also doesn’t let anyone else talk him out of what he knows to be his truth.
In Taurus though, he’s less fierce and is more grounded. Taurus is an earth sign that is represented by the bull, sometimes seen as stubborn or even single-minded, but will actually lend itself positively to this aspect in which we are being given the keys. All we have to do is make the choice to go where our hearts (Sun in Pisces) tell us to.
Mars in Taurus is stable, strong and very sensual. It’s an earth energy which means we are going to feel more connected to what matters most, to what feels good and satisfies us, whether physically, emotionally or even mentally. It’s an energy that will have us becoming more certain about what we feel (Pisces) and want, this time not delaying pursuing it.
While this is the last day of the month, it’s really only the beginning of a brand new cycle, as Pisces also represents the last sign of the zodiac. We are also getting ready to start something completely new, which means we’re going to have to be determined to do it.
For those people who have been in uncertain relationship situations, Sun-Marx sextile will likely provide clarity over the next coming weeks. It will be a time when it seems like declarations or conversations are coming from out of nowhere, and we may be uncertain about what is happening, especially if it feels like things are moving fast. However, it’s also a time to trust.
If nothing else, Sun in Pisces wants us to trust our emotions, our hearts, and what we’re feeling. Sun in Pisces wants us to not miss out on something just because it scares or overwhelms us. And with Mars on the scene, we’re given that confidence and energy to just go for it.
We’ve been through numerous cycles and lessons, we’ve had the world turned upside down and righted once again, we’ve tried to live for others, and we’ve tried to live without anyone else. But now is the time when we will start listening more closely to what feels right for us.
Everything in life comes down to a choice of what will we regret more: trying and failing, or never trying at all. Now is the time to simply do it and go after what you want most.
