These New Moons landing on the anaretic degree send a unique message because they combine endings and beginnings all wrapped into one lunation. This is a particularly potent lunation because it is a Solar Eclipse as well as a New Moon at 29° 27′ Pisces on 20 March 2015, 02:36 AM PDT. One way of looking at this lunation is we must make a clean break with the past in order to make a fresh start.
Both the Sun and Moon make the transition from watery Pisces to fiery Aries within a few hours after this lunation. We go from standing in the cool, damp shade out into the hot sun so quickly it will probably be disorienting for many. The New Moon chart is dominated by earth and water signs, exuding a quiet, patient energy.
The only aspect the luminaries make is a wide out-of-sign trine to Saturn in Sagittarius which produces more dissonance than harmony. Impatient, blunt Sagittarius can step all over Pisces’s toes without realizing it. Saturn is also inconjunct Venus who has recently arrived home in one of her comfort zones, Taurus. I would say Saturn in Sagittarius better be prepared to sit down, shut up and relax already. Neither Taurus nor Pisces will be hurried.
Mercury is still widely conjunct Neptune in Pisces, sending messages through our dreams and visions. This combination is extraordinarily difficult to pin down and will avoid giving a direct answer if at all possible. Go with your initial intuitive response when confronted with a choice. In order to hear this subtle voice, we may need to quiet our busy minds first with mediation of some kind.
Of course, the Uranus-Pluto square is still within orb though the trine between Uranus in Aries and Jupiter in Leo is now beginning to fade. Jupiter is the apex of a Yod with Pluto in Capricorn sextile Mercury in Pisces as the base. The message is a variation of the one to Saturn in Sagittarius, and that is to set the ego aside and listen to compassionate yet practical advice.
After making such a nuisance of himself last week when he conjoined Uranus, Mars in Aries travels alone in this chart. This does allow us to experience the positive side of Mars in his home sign. Forthright and self directed Mars in Aries is very good at fresh starts. If you have personal planets and/or an Ascendant between 20° to 22° in the cardinal signs, Mars will happily give you a boost.
Take some time on this New Moon to examine your life. What we take with us from here will be critical to our future success. Exercise some Pisces compassion and avoid self recriminations as it is time to acknowledge and forgive ourselves for being human. Making mistakes is part of the process and usually it means we are engaged in actively living our lives . . . which is what Aries is all about. See you on the flip side!
