Here's the chart for the Pisces New Moon, which is also a Solar Eclipse.

Check our calendars for the exact time and date in your zone.

 

Pisces
Pisces is associated with compassion, imagination, mysticism, spirituality and unconditional love. The house holding Pisces in the natal chart shows an area of life where one might be easily deceived, prone to escapism, self-sacrificing, where one would show artistry and imagination, or be especially sensitive to the moods of others. Pisces, ruled by the planets Jupiter and Neptune, is an emotional sign with an emphasis on intuitive thought and idealism. Issues involving the seas, chemicals, charities, institutions of confinement, plots, and secrets become emphasized during Pisces.

New Moon at 29 degrees Pisces 27 minutes:
The Moon moves into Aries less than an hour after the New Moon and the Sun follows 12 hours later. Therefore, we can expect the qualities of Aries to be just as prevalent as those of Pisces throughout this cycle. Aries is associated with personal initiative, assertiveness and leadership. There is an emphasis on excitement and adventure. Issues involving political or industrial leaders, the military, exploration and feats of courage become accentuated with the Sun in Aries.

Sabian Symbol for 30 degrees Pisces - "A majestic rock formation resembling a face is idealized by a boy who takes it as his ideal of greatness, and as he grows up, begins to look like it."

The power of clearly visualized ideals to mold the life of the visualizer.

Uranus square Pluto:
Unexpected obstacles to cooperative unity are exacerbated by a struggle between the ideals of democracy and plutocracy. It is a conflict between the individual's need for independence and freedom of expression versus the governing powers' need to maintain control. Restructuring is necessary, but the methods are in argument. At the worst it is a battle of wills. More optimistically, it is a crisis of consciousness leading to an exciting transformation of collective ideals.

This is the final square in this long-term aspect. It is exact at 15 degrees 18 minutes of Aries and Capricorn on March 16, heightening the energy throughout this lunation cycle.

Philip Sedgwick gives the following advice about working with this aspect:

Find the zone in which you perfectly function as a complete freethinking spirit. No need to be roped in by social rules that fail to fit your nature. No need to be so rebellious that you become revolting. Avoid Plutocratic urges and invoke the generosity of Pluto. Reach out to those who intend to make things better on the planet while following that path yourself. Those who get shaken out of the Tower (a la the Tarot) are those clinging to structures, situations and concepts that do not further [humanitarian goals].

Darkstar Astrology provides an in-depth look at the Uranus-Pluto square.

Our advice for this cycle:
A generous blend of bold imagination and compassionate leadership turns this cycle into a fabulous opportunity to explore the unknown, creatively seed the future, make a fresh start and forever change the status quo.

Honor the beginning of new cycles by reviewing and releasing the past. Devote this month to the appreciation of your life experiences since 1996. Forgive perceived failures. Be grateful for good fortune. Bless all your experiences and step into the future. Imagine how you want his lunation cycle, the next 12 months and the next 19 years to unfold.

This is an excellent cycle to make a Vision Board or Treasure Map.

Let your imagination take you on a new adventure. Make it a magical journey. This new moon promises clearly visualized ideals, which in turn will direct your energy into the future.

Questions you might explore for personal insight include:

  • What inspires you?
  • How do you access the sacred space within?
  • Do you listen to your intuition?
  • When do you feel most at peace?
  • What triggers your doubts and feeds your anxieties?
  • Where do you look for healing?
  • When do you feel most protective of your privacy and why?
  • What is your dearest illusion?

Affirm: I am empowered and inspired to act.


Attune to the qualities of Pisces with a 3-minute tarot meditation on The Moon.

Carol Bridges calls the 18th tarot card the "Infinity Within". The Moon card correlates to the sign of Pisces and teaches us to use the power of imagination. Through Piscean energy we learn to visualize spiritual ideals in order to project them into physical form.

Confer with The Moon to develop your creative imagination or to enhance your intuitive abilities.

Attune to the qualities of Aries with a 3-minute tarot meditation on The Emperor.

Ruled by Mars and associated with Aries, The Emperor teaches us to be pioneering and to wield our power with compassion. The Emperor is about structure, form and order. Carol Bridges calls this card "Command" and says "Command is not power over the force, but working with the force. It is taking advantage of a flow already strongly going."

Confer with The Emperor for clarity, insight and self-discovery.

 

   

Quote for this cycle:
"Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall you become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall unveil." ~ James Allen (1864 - 1912) British philosophical writer of inspirational books and poetry



A Mandala is a powerful meditational device for creating sacred intentions. It is an abstract version of a Vision Board, where the patterns and colors resonate with your intentions. We encourage you to create and color your own mandala or color this Pisces New Moon Mandala. The Sun's entry into the zodiac sign of Aries marks the beginning of the astrological year. While you're coloring, imagine the year ahead unfolding month by month, according to your wishes and in perfect alignment with your intentions.

You are invited to send your mandalas to us for placement in our Mandala Gallery.
