Set your intentios for stability and growth! #Eclipse #Taurus #NewMoon
The cosmic fish they love to kiss! Happy New Moon in Pisces everybody!
“We come to the very end of our yearly cycle with this Pisces New Moon on March 11th. This New Moon marks the astrological end of 2012. We not only came through 2012 intact and hopefully inspired, but we came to the end of the 25 years of the Harmonic Convergence as well. During those 25 years many of us worked to wake up and become self-aware individuals—and now that 2012 is past, we have to create a new life out of what we’ve become.
“This year’s Pisces New Moon sets the tone for how we’re going to live in a new paradigm of life. It’s especially appropriate because Pisces represents that vast ocean of feelings and needs that make up our humanity. Pisces is our return to the Source of Life, the vast Collective Unconscious; when we dive in, we come back with the treasures we discover there, treasures that can be the foundation of our new life. These are spiritual treasures that our culture has devalued and ignored for too long. Our task, at the ending of an Age, is to heal our soul’s wounds, trust our Spiritual insight and envision a new way of being for ourselves and our world.”
“This year’s Pisces New Moon is especially powerful for many reasons. Just as Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac, the next sign, Aries, is the beginning of the new astrological year. Since we are in an inverted moon cycle with the full Moon occurring before the New Moon in the Sun sign, the seeds we plant at this Pisces New Moon will bear fruit during the next Full Moon, which is in Libra/Aries.”
“If Pisces symbolizes a death to the old paradigm, then the Libra Moon/Aries Sun opposition in 2 weeks will give birth to the fruit of the seeds we plant now. What has your soul been longing for? Plant the seed of that desire—Mars the warrior god is at the very last degree of Pisces at this New Moon, and he will help you.”

The New Moon in Aquarius is on February 10th at 2:20 am (Eastern US time). So begins the Year of the (Water) Snake!
Water, Water Everywhere!
A lunation in the sign of the (cosmic) Waterbearer, comes with a stellium in oceanic Pisces. There’s harmonious flow to the healing force of Saturn in Scorpio (more water). AND it’s the first day of the Year of the Water Snake. The emotional-psychic waves churn deep, and bring much that’s drifted to the bottom (denied, repressed) to the surface. Keep the purging effect in mind, if you’re experiencing unusual highs and lows.
On an individual level, and then in the various circles ever wider outward, there’s a reckoning, and a chance for authentic healing. But there can be some raw crazy churned up — avoid crowded places if possible. Much will depend on the atmosphere you choose for yourself. Give yourself the gift of calm, to stay present through the inner tsunami. The right friends, music, environmental input makes all the difference.
Dream or Nightmare
The air element is in square to the water element — for rare objectivity, and ability to shapeshift the traumas of the past, into something new. It’s a time of experimentation, moving into new fascinations and inspirations. The penetrating insight into currents of the psyche can be translated and broadcast in some way.
The Messenger and Waterbearer (Gemini-Aquarius) are symbolic allies, to tune in to a new narrative for what’s happening. The deep insights inform your genius, and might even give you a warped sense of humor — to laugh at the absurdity of it all!
Jupiter now in full-steam ahead direct mode (in Gemini) is square to the Pisces planets (Mercury, Mars, Neptune). And Venus in Aqua is squaring Saturn (nearly exactly). If we are able to ride the waves, some of them shockwaves, the rewards are huge! A new sense of freedom is possible, from this catharsis. The path to growth is through being adaptable and releasing energy knots.
The intensity of the New Moon will likely last through early next week, that begins February 11th. New Moons always come with the advice to surrender, to the process, and this is especially important here. Ask for highest healing, and listen to your own guidance moment-to-moment.
This New Moon is considered auspicious as a doorway to finer cosmic vibes. It’s Lunar Imbolc, or Candlemas. It’s time for idealism, and welcoming fine fresh vibes and possibilities. All is new, as the Sun grows stronger everyday. At Imbolc, we light candles and ask for faith. The New Moon is a time of beginnings. You can set intentions or do a New Moon Ritual that grows with the lunar light and reaches fruition at the Full Moon.
Aquarius is about shared energies, in groups, making this key for coming together in ritual. You’ll want to be sure you’re on the same wavelength, since group harmonics play an important role now. If you’re not in synch with your current circle of friends and colleagues, go out and seek those that are an inspired match. This New Moon is about allies for the future, who are tuned in to the highest vision for the whole.

Happy New Moon in Virgo! A master plan is about to be born!
I know tomorrow brings
The consequence at hand
But I keep livin’ this day
Like the next will never come!

Sit quietly with whatever is true right now. Whether you’re happy, sad, harried, wounded, or somewhere in between, before you ride on the wings of Mercury toward something new, and you will, because that’s what we do in Gemini’s cycle, sanctify your experience of this New Moon with some quiet curiosity. Spend five or fifteen minutes to just be. Close your eyes. Listen to the sounds coming from the street beyond your door. Feel the air. Can you notice how it’s gently touching your skin? Tune into your body. Is there tightness anywhere? Numbness? Or are there pleasant sensations? Let your body communicate. It’s telling you exactly what’s going on in your life right now. Ah… how nice to be the one who is listening.”
Your month under the sun ends like it started: with a new moon in your sign. Why is the universe giving Gemini two chances like this? Think for a while in everything that happened in between: 2 eclipses, Venus transit, Jupiter in Gemini… This past two years Gemini has been an outcast for carrying around the south node, which works like a sewer for karma . You lost everything you were holding on to, because a new life was waiting for you, and it starts now. This is a second chance for letting the past behind, without guilt and regret. No matter how hard you resist, new people and new ideas are arriving to your doorstep (chances are, they’re already here). Many of this comes through journeys or contact with unusual or excentric people, but you Gemini are a novelty junkie, so it’s alright. If you still feel this is all happening too fast, is because your ruler Mercury is fighting Saturn right now, but once it enters Leo next week, it will be time for your ideas to shine like a Leo rockstar. In the middle of the week, the Sun enters Cancer and another door opens, this time to liberation, to stop depending so much (Cancer = $) on mom or dad, and to finally be able to do what you want and with whoever you want.
