The Pisces new Moon on March 8 is the final new Moon of the astrological year. It contains a burst of energy to round up all that we have been dreaming into and building up since last year at this time. New Moons are new beginnings and the eclipse conjunction to the Sun gives extra fire power to that which you have been gestating within. The effects of the Eclipse cycle are said to resonate for at least the next six months, so step into your own knowing waters now.
Saturn will be turning retrograde on March 25. So, between now and the second of this eclipse cycle at the Libra Full Moon on March 23rd, we will be aware of the timing and structure of the unfoldment of our hopes, wishes and desires.
Neptune, ruler of Pisces, holds our dreams wishes hopes and desires and it is a good time express in the outer, the dreams we want to become reality. With Mercury also in Pisces, lay it out on paper in words or pictures. Make a video of yourself dancing, singing or stating the dreams you are dreaming.
As I said last time, refine your dreams. New dreams may come in and edge out or help to morph the old. Pisces is mutable energy – it is changeable and malleable. Allow yourself to mold and be molded at this time in concert with your higher self.
The New Moon is conjunct Chiron, the master teacher, the master healer. Feel yourself healing, ALLOW yourself to receive healing. Rest in the knowing that all of your pieces are falling into exactly the right places. Allow that primal wound in you to guide you to your magnificent healing. Allow it to be bathed and transformed into a beautiful scar that points you on your way.
The New Moon is in opposition to retrograde Jupiter in Virgo. Honesty with the self is key. A clearing out of old ideas and plans is useful at this time. More of the old programming from external entities – familial, political, religious, will continue to fall away and/or transform into what is actually true for YOU.
The Moon is also squaring Saturn in Sagittarius – while you are resting into the healing vibration of this new Moon, also allow yourself to use your intuition to tell you when to rest, when to wake, when to be busy and when to just be. The work will get done with ease; your words will be more clear and succinct; the recipe simpler and richer in nutrients. Saturn is the ruler of time and Sagittarius is the one who calls us to our own inner voice, our own inner knowing. When we meditate, we come to our “right size” and we feel our own vibration. When we act from that place, we are in sync with our whole selves, and in turn, with all that is.
Pisces is a mutable water sign. The symbol shows two fish, swimming in opposite directions, each not seeing the other – yet they are tied together at the mouth. We have a direct communication with our Higher Selves, we must only turn inward to connect and know.
Perhaps we connect with the inner by raising our face to the sun while standing by the sea or on the mountaintop.
Perhaps we connect to the inner by the dark of night with eyes gently closed, hearing only the rush of our inner waves.
Join together with that self you cannot see and KNOW.
Much love to you.
The second eclipse in the current cycle is here with the full Moon in Libra. The Sun is now in Aries and we resume the I/Thou dance. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and with that initiatory energy we get in touch with our instinctual nature. Mars is the ruler and Mars wants to GO now and doesn't look back. Well, we might take a step back later and view/review what we've created when driven by instinct.
with the Sun in Aries it is good to make sure you are taking care of the fuel in your system- food, hydration, fresh air, rest. Mars, ruler of Aries, handles physical vitality.
The Venus-ruled Libra eclipsed full Moon is also a Cardinal and initiatory energy - one that is teaching us, through relationship, who we are, at core, ourselves.
Libra, like Aries, also may jump in and ask questions later. Libra energy helps us to work out who we are and what we do and don't want in our lives via the experience of our relationships.
With the Equinox just past, we start a new season. We are doing things that due to weather constraints (inside and out) that weren't possible a few weeks ago.
So, at this time, we trust our gut. We plant the seed in the place our hands guide us to plant the seed.
We strike up the conversation with the person next to us on the bus or on the diner stool adjacent and then see how that feels.
The risk doesn't have to be high with these new interactions between ourselves, the Earth and with others.
It's the initiation of the energy that counts. It's trying out our instincts and finding we can trust them.
The seed we planted does make a sprig. The person we smile at smiles back.
Venus ruled Libra eclipse moon is calling us to relate in new ways.
Try new ways of relating and then take a step back and see how it works out for you. This is how we learn to know and trust our own vibration. This is how we engage and this is how we evolve.
