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,
