March 8th, New Moon in Pisces
18 Degrees Pisces: “In a huge tent a famous revivalist conducts his meeting with a spectacular performance.”
This degree is about spreading your message, speaking your truth, and getting the word out to the regular “folks.” Cue the folk music, as we all get ready for a lively Tarantella. I see this as one of those “either/or” scenarios. Either we reach out with a sincere desire to spread good news and offer a message of hope in a world grown increasingly dark; or we focus on overblown egos and personal gain. It’s a choice. Unfortunately now, for those who choose to sell snake oil or focus on ego, there is a real danger of whipping the crowd up into a frenzy. Everyday people (who would otherwise tend to be less of a mob) may then be easily manipulated by those in charge.
But EQUALLY inherent in this degree of Pisces, is the real possibility of getting out of our own way for a time and allowing Spirit to speak through us. And this is a “spectacular performance” because Spirit has a lot to say and often touches people deeply. It can genuinely move people to hear Spirit messages. It has the affect of waking you up and changing your heart in ways that have to be experienced or felt to be truly understood. This is a call to the dance you were born to dance. The one, unique rhythm that only you hear and respond to. So, polish up your shoes and get ready. You are about to take center stage.
The “huge tent” in this psychic vignette implies a large venue or audience (as opposed to a more intimate get-together) that has gathered specifically for this information. This could be anything from a large town hall meeting to an internet seminar. So, for those light workers reading this, take note: this is a time when you can reach many more people with your message. Whatever your venue: now’s the time to get out there and be heard.
From a health perspective, this degree is associated with vivid dreams, colorful visions, and sometimes disruptions to your sleep cycle. Be careful if you take any type of sleep aid or pain killers now. This includes prescriptions as well as over-the-counter remedies. Don’t overdo them. Or, you can avoid using them altogether by simply taking some common sense measures. Remove the electronics from your bedroom—they interfere with sleep cycles. Allow yourself some down time before bed to prepare yourself for a good night’s rest and allow yourself to relax naturally. Pisces loves to meditate, so that should be quite effective now. And of course, Pisces is always present when drugs or alcohol are in use. Overindulging, partying too hardy, etc., is a danger now. Use moderation and caution.
Last but certainly not least—this new moon carries a bit more punch than others because it is also a Total Solar Eclipse. This is a very strong eclipse whose primary purpose appears to be to awaken consciousness. Pisces is the perfect sign in which to experience a spiritual rebirth in some area of your life, because it represents compassion and divine love. Depending on where 18 degrees of Pisces hits your natal chart, you could have a revelation of some kind with respect to your career path, your marriage, your friends, etc. In order to tap into the higher energies of Pisces try to funnel your energies into a higher calling, a vision, and some divine creativity. Otherwise, the downside of Pisces may envelope you in a dense fog; promoting a period of substance abuse, psychic confusion, or a dark night of the soul. The key is to direct the energies present into a positive outlet. What it comes down to is this: Your Higher Self is on the line—take the call.
A WORD ABOUT THE ENERGY OF NEW MOONS:
A new moon occurs when the Sun and Moon form a conjunction in the sky, and come together in the same sign of the zodiac. This occurs approximately once per month (about every 28-29 days).
This is a time of new beginnings, and represents a special opportunity each month to begin again and get a fresh perspective on things. The power of the new moon is purely instinctual and people tend to go with their intuition. At the dark of the new moon there is little light yet for illumination, so people must use senses other than their sight. Yet this special time holds all possibilities within it, so we have the ability once a month to set a new course for ourselves. For 2 weeks afterwards the moon will be slowly waxing or increasing in light. Then, at the full moon, the light is once again bright and things become fully illuminated. But before we can “see” with our eyes, we have to activate our “sight” in hopes and dreams. Set your intentions at the new moon and then chart your progress at the full moon.
The sign and the degree of each New Moon represents the theme for that 28 day period and signals a time of “resetting” our collective emotional clock. Although, these themes also play out individually in our personal lives. If you know your own natal chart, you can make each month’s reading even more personal by seeing where the new moon impacts your individual horoscope. And if you don’t know your chart, guess who would be just delighted to help you with that? Call me, we’ll talk.
