New Moon in Pisces
“As above, so below, as within, so without, as the universe, so the soul…” ~ Hermes Trismegistus ~
The New Moon arrives at 15 degrees of Pisces on Wednesday, March 6 at 11:51 AM EST.
We open this lunar cycle with an air of dreaminess and wonder. New Moons herald beginnings. This particular juncture offers us an opportunity to surrender and let go without the knowledge of concrete plans or happenings. While we are in the center of exactly where we need to be, three dimensional reality bears a burden at this time; for we are resonating with the higher realms that draw us to the transpersonal experience of our human existence. It is a time in which to integrate the essence of our spiritual nature with the authentic human being that we chose to inhabit as a means for soul growth and evolution. As we swirl with the transpersonal realms, life can be quite confusing and overwhelming at this time as we navigate our daily lives with its multitudes of details. The New Moon in Pisces will whisk us into our wishfulness, our wondering, our creativity, and our higher self. And within these experiences, there is chaos.
When planetary rulers of signs accompany the planets in those signs, we have an intensified experience of what that particular sign, in this case, Pisces expresses. The ruler of Pisces is Neptune. Neptune is traveling closely with the Sun and the Moon offering an invitation to access our higher nature.
Pisces The Fishes is a mutable feminine water sign ruled by Neptune. It embodies the qualities of compassion, sensitivity, empathy, psychic ability, creativity, otherworldliness, emotionality, and spiritual attunement. When Pisces is expressing within its shadow realm, the roles of martyr and victim can take hold; as Pisces carries the weight of the world, seeking to heal all sentient beings. One of the most profound lessons for Pisces is the realization that in order to heal the world, one must heal oneself. Pisces can also manifest as chaos and confusion. Psychological states of illusion and delusion are significant challenging qualities of this sign as well. A profound imagination can conjure both the positive and the negative experience. A direct line to The Divine is essential for Pisces to navigate earthly reality, for such spiritual guidance can facilitate the astute discernment that is required for personal fulfillment.
Somewhere within our natal chart, a realm of Pisces resides. We have all of the signs within our nativity. It is in understanding where they operate that we can flow more with the energy of our path. Wherever Pisces resides in your chart is a place of tremendous sensitivity and attunement. It may also present the challenges of confusion and disarray. The more one is attuned to Spirit, the clearer and more ordered life becomes. The New Moon in Pisces offers a fresh awareness of what resides there as you embark upon a new phase of your journey.
Accompanying the New Moon, there are other significant planetary events that will transpire. On this very day, Uranus will make its ingress into Taurus. When an outer planet changes signs, there is significant change both personally and collectively. Uranus represents breakthrough, change, revolution, and independence. It is also where attunement and concern for the collective is expressed. The key to navigating this challenging shift is to stay grounded.
Additionally, Mercury will also station retrograde on this day. As is well known, Mercury retrograde cycles can be both growthful and challenging times. Attunement to details is paramount. At the same time, it is an optimal time for inner processing, planning, and preparation. Exercise patience as there may be annoyance and inconvenience within one’s daily life. Mercury, The Messenger Of The Gods, is our guide through the Piscean realms, helping us to integrate multiple worlds.
There is a vast array of energy to manage at this time. Our emotional nature is challenged. Pisces is where our energy field is wide open. There may be weepiness for ourselves and the world. We may feel that life is out of control both personally and collectively. The integration of these simultaneous planetary occurrences requires both fortitude and gentleness. Within the plan, there is free will. The guidance for how to direct our free will is readily accessible.
Take a moment of quietude. Allow for the flow of inspiration. Surrender. Let go. Reach out to your Higher Power, to God, to The Universe.
Touch the tender places with tenderness.
PISCES NEW MOON BLESSINGS UPON YOU.
