New Moon

The Dreamy New Moon in Pisces - March 2018

Written by: Ariel Amber (AJ)

The overall energetic scope of the sky has been to look over the changes we've made in our lives and reassess how we've been expanding into the year, deciding what we actually have space for in our lives (emphasized by Jupiter retrograde beginning on March 8th).

There is also a general tension in the air as things are in their final push in letting go and ending winter as we enter into the vernal equinox with the sun's transition into Aries on the 20th. This is the astrological beginning of the 12 sign cycle, which is considered the 'true new year' of the cycle of the sun. 

Up to the 20th, it is best to try to go with the flow, especially as things may be challenged to be completed systematically with the Pisces moon and sun and its 'other worldly' nature. 

The sun and moon are in the same sign, Pisces, and reach the same degree in the morning of Saturday the 17th,  thus there is a new moon as the moon and sun overlap from our point of view.

Pisces is symbolized as two fish swimming in opposite directions. Associated with the planet Neptune, (and in ancient astrology it was associated with Jupiter). The Neptunian qualities makes this sign dreamy and without boundaries. It can be a time where things feel confusing or it is easy to break a rule by not acknowledging a law (or rule) such as running a stop sign.  The dreamy 'beyond this world-ness' Pisces energy might not fully acknowledge the stop sign. Alcohol is a Neptunian drug, when consumed boundaries are dissolved. With a pull for disassociation or escape, a beneficial option maybe to utilize the heightened sense of creativity. Making this a good time to meditate and connect to that which is beyond us. Participate in yoga, paint, color in a coloring book, maybe begin a dream diary or add to one you have as dreams may be more intense or revealing at this time.

Pisces rules the feet and the eyes (windows to the soul) so focusing this time on loving your feet and your soul shall reap the most benefits, and check in with your mindfulness as to how you can support your feet and soul on a day to day basis.  As part of your new moon intentions you may want to reflect on what you might be able to add to your daily or weekly routine to love and feed these parts of yourself.

In addition, by the mid afternoon the moon will be shifting into Aries, bringing a fiery assertive and maybe aggressive nature to our feelings and need to express them.

Enjoy this dreamy creative push into the vernal equinox, letting go of systematic execution until this time has passed, enjoying the creative incubation period. Don't forget where your feet are as you explore the larger celestial channels available at this time!

 

Happy new moon,

Capricorn New Moon 2018

Capricorn Moon and Capricorn Sun, the 'actual' new year. The gust of beginnings with a new moon in Capricorn gives the potential drive to really kick start the year. And really, is the energetic propulsion for the year. While the moon waned from its fullness in cancer, we likely have been processing old memories and nostalgias, hopefully allowing for a fuller view of what we really want to make space for; people in our lives, experiences and ourselves. 

Capricorn is a cardinal earth sign, meaning it brings in the new and can grow and stabilize those changes. Capricorn plans, works hard, and drives up the mountain for achievements. The magic of capricorn is that hard work reaps benefits. (And the opposite is true, lack of work does not produce results.) This makes for the perfect cast off of manifesting our goals.

Now, as a balancing effect I recommend while creating your plan for achievement, include reflection and recuperation moments regularly into your schedule. Don't be fooled by thinking 'I don't have enough time for that' because truly the pauses will create stronger and longer lasting effects of gusto and drive as well as the chance to assess any changes for support that you might need along the way! (but literally carve regular time for it, not making an excuse for 'dooping' out of responsibility).

To emphasize more, there is a ton of capricorn energy with multiple planets traversing capricorn. Saturn is one of those, which is at home and historically the ruler of capricorn, as it will be there at least the next 2.5 years, enjoy it! Saturn in capricorn can really put reality in one's face and thereby experiencing the consequences of laziness or lack of feeding all of our needs and responsibilities. There may be moments when you would rather stay in bed and not be responsible, but really you have got to get up. There is drive to put creations into reality and being able to map out what our dreams will need to be actualized. Being responsible, facing the facts, rules and regulations can seem daunting, but go through all the hoops and requirements and be rewarded at the end! This is the lesson of Capricorn.  If all the 'to do's' get overwhelming, try making a list and order of priority.

This new moon is the energetic propulsion for the whole year. As David Palmer, the Leo king, analogized it is like a rocket ship taking off. So, hopefully you've chosen your trajectory as switching course may create turmoil.
