This New Moon will be completing a lunar cycle that started last September that has impacted those of us with personal planets and angles between 27 & 29 degrees. For me this included Uranus activating the Moon’s Nodes plus the IC and MC in my chart. So I have a new bathroom, very good; a new career, also very good; my mother is dying, not so good; and many, many adjustments in perception, very good in the long term but not pleasant in the doing.
One big perceptual change involved realizing what was really coming in as opposed to what I thought was going to happen. I had hoped to return to weaving, knitting, etc as a vocation but am now realizing that wasn’t to be. We are given clues as to where we need to be putting our energy and getting paid for writing is a definite “Hello!!” Now I am committed to that path to the point of needing to practice some serious time management. With the Nodes being directly impacted by Uranus, it always pays to look at where the North Node wants our attention to go . . . and the writing assignments fit my Gemini North Node perfectly. Going back to the solitary activity of my crafts plays into the South Node in my first that just loves to spend time contemplating the Universe in glorious solitude. 🙂
It does help that the Grand Cross formed in my chart by the Nodes and my MC & IC is in Mutable signs. I have enough Fixed energy in my chart that making changes in direction takes awhile . . .
As always please go read Lisa Dale Miller’s Moon Messages plus the others on my side bar. As Joe pointed out, Lisa’s take on this New Moon is very, very good. As this New Moon/Eclipse is ending a lunar cycle, when the Sun rolls into Aries this year on March 21st, we will get a serious energy boost to new plan, projects, etc. Something to look forward to! 🙂
Here is a snip from one of two articles by the ladies over on Moon Circles. They have some excellent insights into what can be a life-changing New Moon . . .
Pisces New Moon:Coming Clean by Simone Butler
“This month’s Pisces New Moon offers a chance to consciously engage with our darkness, no matter how unsavory, and bring it into the light. Falling at the tail end of the last sign of the zodiac, this New Moon symbolizes the completion of ancient karmic patterns. Pluto, Lord of the Underworld, squares the Sun and Moon—a planetary push to detoxify from old internal programming that has held us back for ages. Although this is not a total eclipse, the activation from Pluto gives it a comparable level of intensity. Pluto takes us down deep into our cells to find both the pain and passion lurking there. It’s time to release the illusion of separation from Source and step forward as conscious co-creators of our lives . . . . . . snip”
Now . . . Happy B-Day, Casey!!! May this upcoming year be one that brings you what you’ve always secretly dreamed about! Here is the general weekly Solar Return from Skywatch Publications:
“You have been shaken and stirred over the past few years, Pisces, as Pluto has squared your Sun. This heavy death/rebirth time is still going on for those born at the end of this week, but you will all share in the wealth of a powerful Jupiter Saturn trine in your new Solar Return, or astrological chart of your new year. This trine is noted for creating the perfect solutions”being in the right place at the right time. Likely it will require work and your willingness to make some changes as electric Uranus, with alternating current, sits next to your Sun in this new SR. This is a year to experiment and to explore new cities, ideas, jobs and plans for the future. Take some time to get off by yourself, Pisces, and take stock of your situation. Make a priority list and take action on the top line”now.”
After looking at your Solar Return chart on Astrodienst I would add that with Saturn on the ASC, it looks like good old fashioned elbow grease will bring great rewards this year. As you are a most capable astrologer, check it out for yourself!! 🙂
The crocus are starting to really bloom now! Yay! The best sign Spring is coming soon!!
