new moon in pisces
march 17, 2018
Tomorrow we experience the first lunar phase just days away from finishing up the current astrological year, a New Moon in Pisces, at 26 degrees and 53 minutes, occurring at 7:11am MDT.
During a New Moon we are called to begin again. To wake up to our desire and participate in the ongoing process of creating our lives. Just as we can’t see the New Moon, we also are unable to fully see the entirety of a new idea, a long held dream, or a much needed life change. Yet there is a persistent process of renewal within each of us as the energy of a New Moon begins to build, revealing possibilities and encouraging us to weave new intentions that seek life.
Pisces is a water sign and the last sign of the zodiac. Highly sensitive, with strong psychic potential, Pisces can pick up the energy and emotions of others, for better or for worse. Ruled by Neptune, Pisces has a natural awareness of the inner realms of existence and seeks consciousness and connection with Source energy. Deeply intuitive, compassionate and creative, Pisces has the ability to manifest through deep personal engagement with imagination, especially when relaxed or in mediation.
Adding to the sensitivity of this New Moon is transiting Chiron and Neptune, both in Pisces. Chiron is the Wounded Healer and tightly conjuncts this New Moon bringing up our emotional wounds of feeling disconnected. There is also the potential due to Pisces being so very open, that we can take on all the emotions, the grief and anger that is out there. This can be overwhelming and damaging. Without the ability to create healthy boundaries there can be an amplification of the shadow, which are the many channels of escapism, as well as consuming apathy and martyrdom.
However, Chiron in Pisces also offers us the potential to heal through nourishing our relationship to our Creator. To choose compassion and connection as we create healthy boundaries. To open up to the truth that we are all One Human Family. That what we create for ourselves, we create for the world. And that when we live in acceptance of ourselves and others, with inclusion, and love, we honor the Divinity in All.
Neptune the planet of consciousness amplifies Pisces ability to envision and expand, and deeply calls us to our spiritual alliance and truth. Do pay attention to your dreams and daydreams, they can offer information, inspiration and messages.
One other significant aspect is transiting Mars in the very last part of the last degree of Sagittarius, which accentuates both the planet and sign. Mars is active and driven and expressed with purpose. In the fire sign of Sagittarius there is a strong need for faith, freedom and experience. Due to Mars squaring Chiron and the New Moon, there is the potential for overly zealous defenses or careless frustration or anger expressed, that can create unexpected conflict and hurt feelings. Using awareness this aspect can help us to activate our beliefs and intentions set forth during this New Moon phase.
There is something in us eternal, a knowing that life is fluid and ever changing and we are part of the process. Let go of resistance. Embrace the unknown. Step into the flow and trust. There is something waiting for expression.
If you’re able to….find some quiet space. Be still and breathe. Open up to your intuition and heartspace. What comes up for you? What would bring joy as well as healing? Remember that the New Moon is the desire of possibility and a fresh start. It is embracing what could be.
