The New Moon in Pisces arrives March 13 at 2:21 am PST / 5:21 am EST at 23 degrees, inviting a necessary retreat and an indulgent escape.
As the Sun and Moon are separating from their dissolving contact with Neptune, this New Moon period is infused with fantasy. We may feel spent or depleted. The life force is calling for rest and rejuvenation, perhaps after a period of overwhelming activity.
New Moons are always times of renewal, when the cycle of the Moon comes to a close and the circle of life and growth begins again. In Pisces, there is most likely a necessary ending, of a relationship, a pattern or a karmic tie. Before we can create the magic of a new cycle, we must clear space and resolve the ghosts of the past.
Loving Venus is exalted in Pisces and is joining mystical Neptune this night. The yearning for love, acceptance and pleasure can be overwhelming and perhaps impossible to satiate. Venus yearns for something beyond, to indulge in the sweetness of life and escape from the everyday. We're sensitive to the sorrows of the world, and regrets and disappointments may be transmuted into healing through a broken-open heart. Even the most mundane prose is transformed into a love song or poem that touches the heart with exquisite poignancy.
However, an undercurrent of intensity is present as the New Moon is applying to a sextile with powerful Pluto that will continue to build as the aspect comes exact March 16. The creative forces of life are determined to manifest in the world. Throughout this lunation cycle, align with the magic and mystery of the gods, to create a powerful heart-centered expression of the Soul.
