New and full moons have always been a fascination for humans. Since time immemorial man has observed the effects of these Lunar changes with absolute enchantment trying to decipher what is happening when this endless dance between the Sun and the Moon is expressed. We already know that the effect of these Lunar changes don’t affect only humans but all living and non-living things. We all remember the last full moon of February 14, when the sea became a menace for many parts of the world, a volcano erupted in Indonesia, computers went crazy, and more than one of us lost emotional control.
The new moons normally invites us to reflect on the events that occurred in the last quarter of the Moon, or on the last full moon and it opens up options and doors that we get the chance to clearly see two or three days before that new moon peaks. This extraordinary new moon which will be exact, in Barcelona, (you should check time zones for other parts of the world) on Saturday, March 1 at 9:00 hrs, at 10º PISCES 39′, right in between Chiron and Neptune, appears to show us what parts of our character and of our life need to heal. It carries also a message of what should heal in our environment and our personal relationships. A stunning t-square between Venus in Capricorn which is in square (90º) to Mars in Libra, which in turn is in conjunction to the Lunar Node and Vesta, and at the same time opposes the South Node of the Moon that is located in conjunction to Eris in Aries, invites us to contemplate and review our values and check what needs to be renewed. The values of the past no longer work, and the world is rapidly changing. We are now all seeing very clear who steals our money, and corruption in the whole world is becoming more and more obvious and many people are being brought to justice. We seriously need to revise who we are voting for and what do we expect from the people who should be administrating our lives.
Looking at the images of Beijing covered in smog where you couldn’t see couple of metres away, reminded me of that Neptunian energy that often doesn’t let us see clear , that takes us to a world of illusions difficult to manage sometimes and the need to rely on what IS and on our intuition and trust ourselves. I can’t imagine an image more Piscean than that. We know that PISCES tells us that we are all one, therefore the theme of “the illusion of separation” is no doubt a topic of this new moon. If we keep positioning ourselves on one side or the other and we continue arguing and fighting to defend whatever we believe to be so different to others, we are transiting through the fog. Listening to the President of Uganda, ranting about gays, as if they belonged to another human species, reminded me that there was a new moon in Pisces coming and that we must question, what exactly is that we are separating from, what is that which we see as so different from us. Different idiosyncrasies does not mean that we are different, but simply that all that variety live inside all of us and that is precisely what makes human beings so special, all that incredible diversity, is who we are, and we don’t need to kill each other for it. Nature is diverse, the flowers with their infinite and different colors and scents, are always flowers.
Cancer is one of the most strongly affected signs by this new moon, with new possibilities knocking at their door, but always with the conviction that certain things must change in order to let them happen. Scorpio and Pisces also have the opportunity to slightly clean neighborhood and surrender to the new.
The highlights of this new moon in PISCES is that it peaks just as Mercury stations Direct, and that finally the Messenger of the Gods goes back to go forward, having made us question the way in which we communicate and Mars stations RETROGRADE until May 20th, which means that instead of spending two months in the sign of Libra, as it normally would, this time will be almost 7 months in this sign, you can read about it here:http://cristinalaird.wordpress.com/2013/12/22/mars-in-libra-from-december-2013-to-july-2014/. Saturn in Scorpio also stations RETROGRADE on March 2 until July 20, and this aspect will bring more light on the corruption and the dishonesty of people in power, but will also make us confront our true intentions. On 6 March, Jupiter stations Direct, putting end to its retrograde motion, which began on 6 November last year on its way once more to the Grand Cardinal cross that takes place in April, but still, for this moon is in square to Uranus and in opposition to Pluto. The outstanding unresolved issues are still like a thorn on our backsides.
This new moon in PISCES connects us with our ancestral and cultural conditioning and with the notion that if we become conscious of it, we can decode in order to become who we really are and not the simple product of the place of birth or parents. It is possible to transform and decode the mind, rather than repeat patterns without even realizing is that we are doing it. PISCES speaks of the human race and our connection with all living being on this planet that we call home, and not just with nationalities and territorial feelings, that only speak or our feelings of separation, of a North and a South, an outside and an inside, an East and a West. EVERYTHING that happens to A human being happens to all Mankind.
