The New Moon in Pisces. The last sign of the Zodiac brings the end of the astrological year. It is time to tie up loose ends and prepare for Spring. THE NEW MOON LAW OF ABUNDANCE will occur on MARCH 01, 2014 at 3:00 AM EST at 10 PISCES 39 MINUTES
THE SIGN PISCES is a mutable water sign. It is where total commitment must be made to proceed with what may only be a vision that could eventually become a reality. In Pisces, you are encouraged to walk into the unknown, even though there is no proof that what you seek could, or ever will, exist. The experiences met in the house of Pisces are often considered to be “karmic”, in the sense that you are confronted with your past. The power of positive thinking, psychic abilities, unselfish love, and a willingness to help when help is needed is the nature of Pisces. Idealistic, spiritual, sensitive, giving, compassionate are all attributes of the sign. Escapism, wishy-washy, fearful, and unrealistic tendencies should be avoided.
This New Moon is taking place in the Cancer decanate of the sign Pisces. The sign Cancer rules the subconscious, the emotions, and instinctual behavior. Intense emotion and great sensitivity! This sign connects us with the past, our roots, family, and the way we were raised. This is the most fertile sign of the zodiac. It is time to nurture, protect, and care for the things that we want to bring forth now. The house ruled by Cancer shows where you build foundations in your personal life. You protect this area of your life like a mother protecting her young. You function in this area with “gut feeling
Neptune is the modern ruler of Pisces and Jupiter is the classical ruler. Where Neptune was when you were born you often find yourself in illusion and have trouble in distinguishing between it and reality. At the same time there is also a deep sense of obligation. With Neptune there is a need to drop the ego and have faith. The house that Jupiter was in when you were born is where you gain broader experiences to help you grow in your life. You get an education and develop your religious and ethical principles.
At the time to this New Moon in Pisces, Neptune the ruler is in Pisces opening the door to higher consciousness and a spiritual understanding of things. Drop your ego this month and get out of your own way and let's see what happens. Jupiter is currently in Cancer in its exaltation. The best place for Jupiter to be is in Cancer and it is trine (very favorable) to this New Moon. The New Moon is 10 degrees Pisces and Jupiter is 10 degrees Cancer. Many blessings will come from this if you just open up to it. The Planet Saturn is in Scorpio so that completes all the water signs. We have planets in all three bringing the need to flow with feelings and emotions. Saturn is opening up some deep feelings that are hard to deal with. This can be a lunation that will help you understand and process those feelings.
Mars is in Libra and goes retrograde at the time of this New Moon. We are encouraged to take action in very conscious ways. Consideration of others goes a long way. All inappropriate actions of the past come up to be fixed. Saturn in Scorpio also goes retrograde at the time of this New Moon giving us time to take a deeper look at what needs attention. There are no boundaries now so you can get in and out and bring the necessary changes. At the very least you find out what has been in your way. The light comes on.
THE SABIAN SYMBOL: MEN SEEKING ILLUMINATION.
This is the symbol of the immortality of man as dramatized in some form of an apostolic succession, or a living tradition of spiritual achievement. The divine spirit is fundamentally a matrix of itself, since its continuance depends on its unswerving maintenance of the purity in motive and expression which it has contributed to the humanity it has created in its own image. The emergence of the human self into experience is similarly a manifestation of the potentialities to which it must devote itself to be itself. The keyword is DEDICATION. When positive, the degree is high accomplishment in an effective alignment with ultimate reality, and when negative, obvious hypocrisy. Sabian Symbols” Marc Edmund Jones.
