New Moon in Pisces
March 1, 2014
The new moon sets the stage to a new spiritual awakening when it enters Pisces at 10 degrees depending upon the orb. This new moon will void the sky on March 01, 2014 at 3:00am EST and 12:00am PST. The similarities of this moon can be reflected back to March 2011 when the new moon entered Pisces at 13 degrees.
Any time there is a new moon or full moon in water signs expect massive surges of water or snow, floods, and large waves. Several days after the new moon in Pisces 2011, a tsunami hit Japan which caused massive damage causing the city to rebuild itself. The weather on the east coast not eased either, one storm after the other has affected salt supplies and cause damaged to streets and some have even died. So perhaps it’s a wake-up call to bring new beginnings to appreciate what we have and make it a beacon call from the higher power to always be spiritual.
With every new moon we are questioned to look at actions, reactions and how we handle conflict, love, and spirituality. Usually, when the new moon enters Pisces many call it a spiritual moon because everyone has Pisces somewhere in their chart. This is because the Universal “God” is a Pisces and we are his/her children. Thus, this unconditional love and new beginning forces a spiritual love.
It’s a time to be more loving towards yourself as well as others. This new moon will give enough energy to stop any self-destructive activities, dependencies, or behaviors that have stalled lives of people around us as well as us. The moons energy will allow the awareness to use our strength to connect to our highest psyche – God, to help us to manifest our dreams. However, while Mars slows us down Saturn, the Karmic God of lessons began to retrograde backwards and remains in Scorpio.
A few days ago Mars turned retrograde in Libra and will remain there until May 31, 2014. Mars usually retrogrades every two years for 10 weeks. This may cause many of us to be tired, withdrawn, frustrated, angered, or annoyed but Mars is affecting Libras, or those that have proportionate charts in Libra. However, Mars does not have to be negative. It gives many of us the opportunity to look at ourselves, the way we react to situations, and consider our consequences before we act upon them. Self-accountability can be difficult when we are stuck in a pattern of behavior or thinking. Mars can also bring out those hidden desires but allow us to experience them in a healthy, natural way.
Saturn entered the sign of Scorpio in October of 2012; any time any planet goes backwards it always asks us to reconsider what we have learned as we continue to grow. Saturn is about hard work, difficult changes, and often it can feel like someone is peeling your skin. However, at the end of the day when Saturn (Shani) leaves, he exits with a wonderful present at the door. Read more about it here.
However, Mercury is still retrograding and according to Vedic analysis it will continue to retrograde until March 22, 2014 (Read more about it here) this will continue to cause communication delays, relationship issues and slowdowns of every kind. Read more about it here. The energy is so sluggish that thoughts of uncertainties, confusion, chaos, and sadness are natural as we look at light in a completely different way.
Almost everyone will be affected by this new moon in one way or the other. Whether this is through Mars, Saturn, or this moon, circumstances and world view will defiantly be a catalyst to change, either physically or psychologically. The adjustment will open many doors to medicine and spirituality. The greater emphasis will be where Pisces is prominent in one’s chart. It is vitally important to understand the Pisces affect and how in-tuned you are to be psychic sponges.
The spiritual moon will give the power forcing us to act and appreciate that we are all a part of an unknown and reawakening. The energy will give the ability to hear the sounds of direction which should be contained. This moon will enhance dreams and shock the mind to a new direction in life. The old way of life must die. Thinking patterns must also be clinched knowing that this is the quiet before the dawn. The theme will be to denote life as if it can really be touched through expression and imagination.
The New moon will signal a time to weed things with consideration and unconditional love. To be able to recognize that people are doing what they can with what they have. It’s a good time to absolve those who have hurt you. It is time to let go of expectations if it means you have to cry and let it all go so that you can begin a healing process. It’s a time for destiny, the eye of infinity, how you live your life, and the sensitivity in your heart. There is a greater need to renounce with an open heart and go beyond time itself and journey through the spirit. Embrace the love you have for someone and be the psychic sponge for those that deserve healing energies. Give yourself the familiarity of new beginnings.
The new moon in Pisces normally is a time of tranquility, devotion, and the planting the seeds for spring. It is a time of earth rejuvenation when the first scents and stirrings of spring are so provokingly close. It’s also a moon of Shiva who abolishes our imperfections in order to bring spiritual growth and progress. Shiva is the light that brings the higher place in our lives to hold life with humbleness, love, compassion, accepting, and sympathy.
The Pisces new moon represents a time of very enormous outlook and responses. Self-destructive impulses can arise for those in the grip of cynicism. For many, it becomes more difficult to appreciate and value the quality of life. The power of emotional energy can be helpful if directed into pioneering activities and self-healing. However, there is a strong desire to simply slip into interference. It is better to indulge in constructive pastimes rather than yield to more vicious, distracting activities.
Gloomy tendencies can easily dominate under this New Moon. The influence of this New Moon can be especially difficult or demanding for those who were born under a New Moon phase, as well as for those of the mutable Sun Signs Virgo, Gemini & Sagittarius. Also, for those whose birth Moon is in Pisces, this New Moon can represent a critical time for potential accidents, hurts, negligence, and the undertaking of rash choices or judgments.
The Watery Pisces Moon feels everyone’s blues with a kind and insightful heart. Give to others, share your dreams, and create from your deep thoughts. Don’t let your wandering heart get lost! The Moon in Pisces marks a time of thrilling compassion, melancholy, and spirituality. People may become more insightful, compassionate, and creative. As creativity will be enhanced, this is a good time to explore musical talents and other artistic endeavors. Represented by a pair of fishes, Pisceans are self-sacrificing and sacred, often strongly insightful, and they are receptive to the collective cataleptic.
While the Moon moves through Pisces, people may feel dedicated and gentle but also delicate, unreceptive, and fearful. Dreams and memories may stir during this influence. Neptune brings a leaning towards the psychic synthetic which rules Pisces. Thoughts are strong when the moon is in Pisces. There is a sharp sensitivity to music and other vague forces. Tendencies are to be open, spiritual, and self-sacrificing. The moon in Pisces adds a developing manipulable that can create feelings of powerlessness, drifting into withdrawal as an emotional protection. People may feel submissive emotionally, mild, caring and joyful but too easily dispirited. Some might experience stirrings of vague memories (often identified as past lives) or insights into spiritual meanings of current situations.
The moon in Pisces can be considered a personal new moon. The opportunity to question how everyone is in our lives and how personal we are to them was the theme of the Full moon. The moon in Pisces questions how spiritual is the life’s journey? It’s about bringing us closer then it will let go. It will bring us closer and repeat until our psyche is triggered to flow like a fish in the water. The moon is assisting us to shape our lives for the following year.
Question what you have learned in the last year. Do you see anything that is similar each year? As the past moves away from us the details that used to be important are no longer as vital as they once were. When the same opportunity arrived for you three years ago (New Moon in Pisces 2011) did you cultivate and take care of it? And how was this path in the winter of 2012? Did it stay? If it did then how did you foster it? If not what did you do? These are all questions which should be answered honestly inside yourself.
The energy of Pisces intensifies change for tomorrow. It’s time to love those who love you, let go of hurt and pain of others, and inspire yourself. Imagine for a moment you are walking on the beach, as you walk you leave footprints and the waters waves wash them away just like this moon does. Leave the past behind. Be the change and move towards your destiny. Meditate more. Reconnect with people who are around you. Focus on things that have been a trials and tribulations in your life and find the spirituality in the lessons being learned.
The moon in Pisces is Subtle, Artistic, Psychic, Vicarious, and Imaginative. We must remain focused and use our physic abilities to move towards our decision-making. It is my suggestion that you purchase a Purple candle and carve your name through to the wick. Anoint the candle with Sage oil or Lavender oil and chant the psalm 08. You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle. Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras, achieving the desired result is dependent upon the quality of intention. When it comes to finding satisfying relationships, it is of the greatest importance to begin with a clear understanding of what your goal should be. The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but are a powerful source of energy. The mantra for Pisces moon is:
“Om Nama Shivaya”
(Om Nah-Mah Shee-Vah Yah)
This Siddha mantra uses the universal elements that rule each charka: Earth, Water, Fire and Air. This is also a time of Mahashivratri for most Hindus and thus a propitious time for renewal and rebirth for many.
With every moon cycle, remember to cross out the old affirmation even if there is the slightest change and create new ones. The perfect number for aspiration is 10. This means to list 10 aspirations and recite them every night until the next moon cycle. Remember never make the affirmations beginning with “I must”, it must be worded “I will be guided.”
Please remember that I am not an astrologer, rather a Vedic reader and there is a vast difference. Astrology opens the door into the unknown future which allows me to show you the forks ahead and how best to understand the energy forces through Vedic Readings.
Many people have asked the question how often they should have a reading done by a psychic or a tarot reader. In my opinion, an in depth reading should be done every moon cycle. Since every moon cycle represents a change, it not only affects our external forces but our internal forces as well. Of course, we all have burning questions every now and then and it maybe necessary to have a reading done more often, but sometimes we have to let Universe take its course. When dealing with a tragic situation it is my suggestion that before you have a reading done you must clear away negativity and fear from your emotions so that a reader can give you the clearest reading possible.
Remember that every intuitive bases all their telephone readings on your energy. So remember to ask guidance from the higher power before having a reading so that you can be neutral with your energy. The clearest answers can be given when energy is at a neutral point. Never get a reading when your energy is scattered because you may not receive the best reading possible. 98% of all psychics are empathic and clairvoyant so this energy is very important to them as well as you. Always remember that every reader has their boundaries as to how far in the future they want to read. This is their choice; however, reading beyond 6 months is a very hazy situation. Our free will plays an important role in our destiny and we are able to change anything.
Let this new moon be the spiritual awakening which you have been waiting for and be the path of light to many around you.
Remember always do on to others as you would want done on to you and always appreciate, recognize and be thankful even if the circumstances are difficult and unbarring.
