“I dream my painting and I paint my dream.” ― Vincent van Gogh
A new chapter begins on Saturday, March 17th, 2018, at 9:11 AM EDT as a New Moon occurs in the mystical twelfth sign of the Zodiac. Pisces’ watery landscape offers us a gateway to the higher realms of human consciousness. The illusory world of dreams, shadows and secrets is as valid to the Piscean as the reality of this one, sometimes even more so.
“If you tend toward the extremely sensitive side of the spectrum anyway, you’ll want to watch your boundaries to guard against the ‘energetic sponge’ phenomenon, should you encounter negative people or toxic behavior.” – Amanda Painter
This is a window of opportunity to dive deeply within, to release feelings of guilt and emotional poisons. It will be helpful to find an outlet to channel this dreamy, emotional energy. Art, music, poetry and dance; non-verbal forms of communication are especially healing during this time.
If your birthday falls within five days of March 17th, this magical New Moon in Pisces will be speaking to you directly. The same is true if you have a natal planet or point within five degrees of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces at 26 degrees. Find this degree along the Virgo-Pisces axis to spiral in to the themes that could be up for you here.
“This New Moon is especially creative and ambitious with its trine to Jupiter and (wide) sextile to Pluto. While we are likely to feel very inspired, and this New Moon can motivate us to take a leap of faith, we should watch for impatience and impulsive moves, since the lunation is also square to Mars, which is on the verge of changing signs and is thus especially vulnerable/volatile. Words can sting now, although they can also prompt a “turning over a new leaf” moment and fuel a new beginning. The Sun/Moon also form a semi-sextile to Uranus, and we can struggle a little with the idea of going our own way and being independent. While we want these things, it can be difficult to integrate these urges into our personalities or to act upon them consistently.” – Annie Heese
With anything you’re trying to get off the ground or bring to fruition, pace yourself. It may take time to see your dream materialize, but if you act on or just after the New Moon, you should have a healthy crop to show for your efforts. xx
