New Moon in Pisces

Okay.  New Moon in Pisces.  What about it?

A while back, a friend of mine gave me a Deepak Chopra book entitled “The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire: Harnessing the Infinite Power of Coincidence”.  In it, he speaks about how coincidences are actually messages from the Universe designed to help us all achieve our personal destiny.  Chopra also references the world of archetypes, and how in all great story-telling, both fiction and non-fiction, there’s a mythic, hero-based structure that frames the narrative.  These concepts aren’t anything new – that we all have a larger purpose that we can actualize once we give over to the path laid out for us by a greater source.  It’s STAR WARS.  HARRY POTTER.  OPRAH WINFREY.  But it isn’t a belief we all subscribe to for our own lives.  So, what would happen if we all surrendered our egocentric drives and humbly followed the signs planted in front of us?  Would we be any closer to fulfilling the dreams we hold deep within?  Or would we just wander off into the deep end, never to be heard from again?

March Ahead

Okay.  March is coming and the planets are moving.  What about it?

When the Sun goes into Aries on March 21st, it marks the start of a new Zodiac cycle.  I look at this transition from softer, emotional Pisces into swift and energetic Aries as the astrological New Year.  It signifies the time for us to come out of our winter slumber and get active in some area of our lives.  We’re meant to be on our toes this month as the world’s natural shift out of hibernation mirrors our own sense of awakening.  The recent Jupiter shift into Aries already got this particular ball rolling, but March will now cement that forward momentum we’re all starting to feel.  These days, you may actually feel as if time is speeding up, which could be true on some energetic level, but it also resembles Aries’ usual nature of rapid activity and inspiration.  March also offers some planetary shifts in the signs of Aquarius and Pisces, so it all won’t be full throttle propulsion.   Let’s take a closer look at what the planets have in store for us this month.

Okay. Full Moon in Leo. What about it?

Okay.  Full Moon in Leo.  What about it?

As we’ve discussed before, a full moon represents a time of release, whether it be around emotions, items, or relationships.  And everyone has their own specific way of letting go.  Some have to physically throw something out to signify an ending.  Others have to communicate their issues and have that well-known “closure” talk.  There are those who have to create a piece of art to surrender their stress.  Then, there are many who don’t even deal with releasing or letting go of old business.  They perform some sort of “top kill” on themselves by piling “more important” things (events, the kids, work) on top of their emotions.  A Leo Full Moon is certainly not a time for the latter.  Leo is that loud, dramatic energy that needs to shout from the mountain tops.  So what happens when it meets up with the soft, sensitive Moon?

Venus is conjunct Pluto. In Capricorn. What about it?

Okay.  Venus is conjunct Pluto.  In Capricorn.  What about it?

Pluto is that planet of deep transformation.  He wants us to get down into the depths of ourselves and examine who we are and why we do the things that we do.  Pluto is not going to settle for some surface conversation.  A night out with Pluto is going to take you to that club you’ve always wanted to go to but knew it would mean you weren’t coming home until the sunrise.  And you’re probably not coming back the same person either.  Venus is the complete opposite.  She wants to take you on a nice, relaxing picnic near a lake, where you can eat tiny sandwiches and drink Rose.  She may even want to paint your portrait there.  Or your nails.  It’s a completely different experience.  So what happens when these two energies meet up?  And how does it directly affect you?
