March begins with a New moon in the dreamy, visionary sign of Pisces. Pisces is the last sign of the Zodiac, and third water sign. It is tuned to the oceanic realm of collective consciousness, where endings are the foundation for new beginnings.
The sign of Pisces exemplifies the great mystery of creation, for it assimilates all that came before within context of the larger forces at play. Its symbol is that of the two fish, tied together, swimming in opposite directions illustrating the “in-between” dual nature of this sign. Ultimately, Pisces is the sign that signifies the innate connection of opposites. Past & future, reality & fantasy, known & unknown and so on.
Pisces is truly a fluid, feeling sign that can literally swim in any direction, occasionally getting lost in the vast ocean of consciousness. Compassion, madness, imagination, visions, illusion, dissolution, weakness, intuition, art, music, sensitivity, escapism, fogginess, merging, devotion, lack of boundaries, sacrifice, confusion, charity, dreams, and transcendence all correlated with this sign
A new moon occurs when the sun and moon join together in the sky in a different sign each month. This marks the beginning of a fresh lunar cycle that lasts approximately 29 days. Whatever is happening in the sky when these two luminaries join can influence to the whole cycle.
Looking at the chart for this Pisces New moon, we see The Sun and moon applying to Jupiter in Pisces, and these 3 planets are applying to Neptune. This forms a conjunction between all 4 planets, making this new moon extra Piscean, especially since both Neptune and Jupiter are home in this sign, strengthening their influence.
We also have the Moon and Sun Sextile to Uranus in Taurus, which can trigger unexpected shocks or surprises, that can stimulate some type of change related to values, resources, money, love or land. Sextiles usually excite pleasant opportunity, however , you need to pay attention to take advantage of the energy.
If you have any planets close to 12° of the mutable signs, Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius or Pisces, you may get pulled further out into the ocean than expected. If you start feeling lost, make a conscious decision about what you want to get lost in. A good film, dancing, making art, walking in nature or relaxing with those you love are great ways to let the energy wash through you.
If you have planets in any of the water signs; Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces around 12°, pay attention to harmonious synchronicities, as there may be blessings wanting to come your way.
We are all going to be experiencing the condensed energy of Pisces realm in one way or another. There is a lot of optimistic, expansive, visionary energy available with this lunation.
This is a great new moon for setting intentions around bringing your dreams to life, in service to the greater all.
Pisces reminds us that whatever we do, think, feel, dream, say or create has ripple effects throughout the universal web of life. We are all connected. I am another you, and you are another me. You are here to impact evolution and growth through being and doing you. It’s really the only way. Your desires and intentions are sacred nourishment for all, especially when birthed from unconditional love and compassion.
For those of you who like using other celestial bodies or points, there is a beautiful grand trine between the Sun/Moon, Black Moon Lillith and Hygiea. This offers a great opportunity to call back something in you that was exiled that will support greater health, vitality and daily habits.
This new moon is exact at 12:43pm EST. At 4:23 pm EST the moon will make and exact conjuction with Jupiter, then go on to connect with Neptune at 6:36 am EST, on March 3rd. You can use those lunar connections to feel more deeply into your intention for this fresh cycle.
On March 5th, the sun will come in to an exact conjunction with Jupiter, then join with Neptune on March 13. These connections will help bring more awareness to what this cycle is illuminating in your life.
While new moons are typically a time to plant new seeds, the Moon and Sun are also asking that you be willing to bring something to completion to make space for the unifying wholeness of your visionary intent.
I feel Dane Rudyhar’s interpretation of the the Sabian symbol for this lunation degree offers a great deal of insight that you can apply to your own creative princesses;
Here is a little snippet:
“AN ANCIENT SWORD, USED IN MANY BATTLES, IS DISPLAYED IN A MUSEUM.
KEYNOTE: Through the effectual use of will a consecrated human can become a symbol of courage for all those who follow in their footsteps.
Will power is the ultimate spiritual weapon, and its undeviating use is the certification of individual worth. Wherever found, this symbol emphasizes the imperative need to make use of the will in meeting the basic challenges of the inner life as well as outer adversaries.
The individual must use that WILL POWER, yet it is not really their own once they operate at a spiritual level. It is God's will operating through their mind which focuses its thrusts. It is, occultly speaking, the power of the Brother/Sisterhood — the energy of the Whole operating through the one-pointed individual who has made this Whole aware of the need for its use in a particular situation.”
