This New Moon is happening at 1° of Pisces and will be most potent for people with personal planets or the ascendant at 0° to 4° of the Mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces) as well as 29° and 28° of the fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius). In my practice, the purpose of astrology is to give us the ability to see the divinity in the shifting circumstances of our daily lives to help us surrender to what we cannot change, the courage to change what we can, and the wisdom to know the difference. If you are interested to know what part of your chart will be impacted by any transit, you can book a reading with me.
The Pisces New Moon plants a seed of imagination and desire, punctuating the Venus and Neptune conjunction, and is fueled by the bold, brave and go-getter attitude of Jupiter in Aries. The Sun moving away from its recent meeting with Saturn carries a new sobriety and somber-ness. While we feel energized to move towards the romanticized version of our lives we can do so with a more grounded sense of reality. This lunation marks a tonal shift from cold, analytical Aquarius into empathetic, boundaryless Pisces. As the Sun leaves Aquarius for Pisces, the Saturnian heaviness of the last 4 years begins to break and we can begin to ease up on control, restriction and perfectionism. Both Aquarius and Pisces are future oriented; Aquarius thinks up the future, while Pisces feels into it. Intellectual ideals about the future are necessary for manifesting a fair and just world, but without the emotional intelligence and faithfulness of Pisces we have no hope for it.
The stage set for this New Moon is the romantic fantasy of the Venus and Neptune conjunction in Pisces contrasted by the sober reality check of the Sun and Saturn conjunction in Aquarius. The beautiful visions of Venus and Neptune show us the energy of the desires that flourish within our imaginations. If we fantasize about running away into the forest to live in a mushroom hut, we are tapping into our desire for isolation and a connection with nature. If we fantasize about people that gratify us sexually, we are witnessing our desire for intimacy and arousal. The somber feeling of Saturn may trick us into feeling that if we cannot possess this fantasy we should disregard it for the cold harshness of the “real world”. Sun conjoined Saturn illuminates all the reasons and responsibilities that we must attend to, our ‘why nots’. While we may not be able to attain our fantasies in their details we can bring them into our lives in their essence. However grim this contrast of desire and reality is, we can stay in the faith and hope of a future that balances both in harmony.
This New Moon invites us to learn how to ground our fantastical desires without losing their spirit. As Venus will shortly after the New Moon enter Aries and join Jupiter, we will be emboldened to take action to move closer to a world that satisfies us, whether we need to take time off to camp in the woods or to speak with our partners about how to better meet one another in union. If we can take the passionate imagined fantastical image of our desire and use the reality check of Saturn to our advantage, we have a good chance of inviting the energy of our fantasies into our lives.
Thank you for taking the time to arm yourself with the knowledge of astrological energies. It is my hope that my forecasts help you be empowered in moving in harmony with the planets, instead of feeling at the whims of the transits. Astrology can help us learn how to ride the waves of our transits instead of being bowled over by them, taken into the undertow. If you’re interested to learn more about how these tranists could effect you as an individual, you can book a reading with me. Happy New Moon all <3
