"We are born at a given moment, in a given place, and like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and the season of which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more." - Carl Gustav Jung

Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces

   This is the second eclipse in two weeks and being a New Moon Solar Eclipse, the inner and outer energies of the aligning Sun and Moon are in sync and affecting everyone through mundane matters. A Pisces New Moon tells us we are looking at wrapping something up, winding down to let go and preparing space in our lives for something emerging at the Aries New Moon in one month.

   Pisces is about intuition, compassion and understanding. There are a lot of things going on in this mutable Water sign - Mercury, Neptune and Chiron are also swimming nearby, subtly saying pay attention to your dreams and  your intuition. Are there messages from your subconscious that you need to listen to? We're in a very foggy time, having difficulty distinguishing between reality and illusion. It's important not to jump to conclusions about anything until your feelings become clearer and you regain your true vision.

   At the time of the New Moon, Mars exactly conjoins Uranus at 21 degrees of Aries, adding to the precarious volatility and uncertainty of this lunar phase. It's true that Mars and Uranus can serve as a breakthrough where one is needed, so long as the energies are aligned with a conscious intent to begin something new. Just don't let outside pressures force you into hasty action with no clear vision as that can lead to disastrous effects.

   With a heavy concentration of planets in one portion of the sky, nine fitting in between Saturn at 26 degrees of Sagittarius and Uranus at 21 Aries, things can feel out of balance. The lone planet outside this 120 degrees, is Jupiter in Libra, acting as the handle to this basket of feelings, (planets in Pisces) wanting to make something happen, (planets in Aries). Jupiter reminds us that maintaining harmony and balance is the goal now, as we tentatively feel our way out through the fog and await certain clarity. Seek knowledge, seek the truth and decide not to overreact, especially to people and situations outside your control.

  Pisces reminds you to let your creative juices flow in whatever medium you chose, whether art, music or dance. This last sign of the zodiac also craves alone time, so... if you require peace and quiet, take some time out for yourself. Dare to follow your dreams and pick up their threads toward your personal desired outcomes. And while you're at it, remember to keep your head in the stars and your feet on the ground!
