NEW MOON Feb 28, 11:59 PM Pacific at 10 Pisces 39!
March 1 for Mountain, Central and Eastern zones
See FULL Moon
This New Moon has a huge water emphasis. Sun, Moon, Chiron, Neptune in Pisces, Neptune in its own sign. Jupiter in Cancer. Water is known for emotions, sometimes rampaging, other times calm as a glassy lake on a windless day. Calm is an emotion too. Water is ever observant, often silently, with deep insight. Because they see the nuances afoot, they are good at reading cycles and outcomes, turns of directions, instantly.
The Moon conjuncts Neptune, the planet of Pisces 3:17 PM Pacific. Artist or mediator, surfer or savior, take some time out for contemplation of your intent, your place among us. Retune to your Source. This is a once-a-month aspect, but this time happens to precede the New Moon, so it’s a refinement preparing you for the New Moon’s finishing her cycle, beginning anew refreshed. You may find yourself entering a spiritual practice, or taking time out to rest, for a walk on the beach, a swim. Tune up your studio, get out the art and beauty supplies, turn on the sound, make a film!
Good Fortune! Preceding our New Moon, during the day of, first Sun then Moon make the trine with Jupiter! Sun at 8:05 PM, Moon at 11:44 PM, just 15 minutes before our New Moon! Sun and Moon are referred to as the Lights. Jupiter amplifies, turns up the optimism, and is considered Lucky, and trines are considered to be blessings in action! Sun in Pisces with Jupiter in Cancer, reads like a fairy tale. Pisces is dreamer, maker of music, mediates with the possibilities of your very Soul. The Sun in Pisces lights places that have lain dormant, shy of discordancy, yet stirred in spite of itself, enchanted by Circe’s call. Armed with holy herbs, rescue yourself, enjoy what’s naturally yours.
Jupiter in Cancer makes the journey home worthwhile. There are tales to tell, volumes of learning to be cherished that are magnificent in perspective to the Past. Illustrate, photograph, write, publish that book! Mothers may be exalted, children protected. Schisms may become mergers as the option for forgiveness is possible.
Moon in Pisces Pisces is one in of the most sensitive signs the Moon can be in. Every nuance is recorded. What seems like low volume to others, may be high volume to them. What is missed by others is 100% apparent to them. They can be guardians, Watchers of the Keep, noting shadows within shadows. Listen to them. Fine tuning is their forte. They can predict from the slightest twitch in the Universe. They can be the kindest, compassionate beyond words, unless you commit a mortal sin. Then they can become a tidal wave of reform for the underdog who can’t speak for themselves. Repent. Sincerely. Make amends. They do believe in mercy, and can be nurturing when you need it most.
Uranus in Aries is the 4th planet strongly involved, semi sextile the New Moon in exact degree! Though a semi sextile is considered a minor aspect, I have seen them be powerful involving health and wealth. Jupiter squared Uranus exactly Feb 25, 3 days before our New Moon, and is in a continuous close square until April 20. What’s in this New Moon will ride with it. Challenges in friendships and family, abrupt changes involving lots of people, weather.
The Sun is conjunct Chiron Feb 26 to Mar 3. Chiron sextiled Pluto in Capricorn exactly also on Feb 25, for the 5th and last time. At this time it’s personal. Put your heart into your healing. Work your life in a good way. Pay attention to those Pisces intuitions. Admit false premises and get beyond them. Be guided by heroes and heroines!
This Moon has so many important aspects preceding it, and within hours, on March 1 Mars retrogrades at 8:24 AM Pacific! Mars, as is Mercury, is in Station – virtually standing still from our point of view on Earth. With both Mercury and Mars in stations, there may be a lot of inner action rather than striding forward, and New Moons are naturally more quiet dark nights. Don’t be afraid to hold your horses if you aren’t quite sure of your direction yet. Mars is in Libra square Libra’s ruler Venus, now in Capricorn. Assess the Balance. Consider the consequences of forcing through versus reasonable responsibility, respect for the time it really takes. As well as lobbying for what you want, in behalf of others perhaps, give them also a chance to come to you. Bide your time. Build your strengths. Keep house. Be poised. Open some doors, graciously extend some invitations.
FULL MOON March 16 at 10:08 AM Pacific – 26 Virgo 02
Mars is now Retrograde in Libra going all the way back to the 9th degree! It will have an extended and powerful 13 day engagement in the Cardinal Grand Square culminating April 20/21, continuing through 22/23. See the red triangle? Mars will fill the 4th point. April 22, Mars will make the square to Jupiter, with ALL the 4 planets at the corners of the Grand Square at 13 degrees. The 13th degree can be potent, considered a ‘critical’ degree by many astrologers. It represents gateways, not necessarily bad luck at all. Sometimes things come to a head, there is a crisis, a significant change. In this case, being in a challenging configuration, it would be hard to separate the cause, the critical degree or the troublemaker Grand Square. Cardinal signs are noted for taking action, so one way or another, don’t expect to be placidly standing around if your chart has factors close to or at the 13th degree. What you bring to this Full Moon will be part of your contribution to April events.
Mars is significant in this Full Moon because it is at the same degree as the Full Moon, 26, and 26 is the degree of the Galactic Center! Mars is semi-sextile Mama Moon in Virgo, trying to politely push her along to get things done, free some of her time to socialize with new people, find new solutions, unclutter the pathways. Mars is inconjunct askew from Father Sun in Pisces. Pisces can shrink back from abrupt action, yet understands Mars may be well intended. Perhaps it is just the inspiration and encouragement needed when in the right dose. Pisces is a believer, and Mars is a champion! For the same cause, they can change the world!
The GALACTIC CENTER is at 26 Sagittarius, at potent cross axis with the Full Moon. In mutable signs, they consider possibilities, are genius at adapting to circumstance. Modifications save the day. The Galactic Center is considered a Galaxy Gateway, a point of exchange and huge infusion! Keep an open mind. They will say it can’t be done, but mutables are made for surprises! Virgo gathers the pieces, will refine the details that make the difference. Sagittarius sees through the wormhole and slithers past the problems to a satisfying outcome. Lucky, that. Pisces never doubts; they always knew. And that Mars in Libra hanging about brings good people to the mix. They have just the right challenging questions that make it not only successfully life changing, but so lovely you are thankful too! Pure magic! Since Mercury trined Mars the 14th (Friday), you may have already spoken with a potential partner, probably on the 12th.
Venus in Aquarius, Jupiter in Cancer and Uranus in Aries though in different degrees, are in a concurrent set offering intriguingly remarkable options. Might seem odd at first, but tweak them a bit and see what shakes! They won’t be GrandMa’s solutions! You will have to prove their feasibility to Virgo, and favor the budget. Pisces sees through glitter, so the intention must be pure, for the good of all. Jupiter in Cancer enjoys shaping the dough, playing with cycles of shape-shifting. Move things around, there may be a good fit, brighter days.
