BIG things are happening in the skies! It's important to remember that it's not just on these New and Full Moons, Eclipses, Retrogrades and Equinox's that we are being effected by the cosmos. It's constant. But, there is no denying that days like this where so many things are colliding and aligning are very powerful and extremely important opportunities to be used in our growth and understanding.
Let's see what's happening: the New Moon in Pisces, a Solar Eclipse, the Spring Equinox, the final exact square of Uranus and Pluto (since 2008), and we've got Jupiter and Saturn both in retrograde. You might be thinking what I am thinking... that's a whole lot to be feeling. But that is the way life has been feeling these days, we are all dealing with so much intensity while feeling like life is moving faster than ever. This is a big time of transitional energy. The Moon moving from Pisces (the last sign of the zodiac) to Aries (the first sign in the zodiac) (a transition from water to air), the Equinox as we move out of Winter and into Spring, and the final push between the Uranus and Pluto square. We are no doubt in a time of transition, a time of letting go of the old to move into something new. It is a great time to surrender to this energy and use it in your life. Think about the things that you wish to let go of. Think about them in relation to what you want to call into your life. I think we all understand in our minds this concept of letting go of the old to make way for the new, but rarely do we honor that process. We want to speed right through it like it is as easy and simple as tossing out an old pair of shoes, focusing on looking ahead only. But it takes time and awareness. It's a process, one that isn't a straight line, the past and the future are connected and interwoven. You don't want to keep dragging the past around with you, but instead using it as awareness can inform how you make different choices about the future. Try working with your past and future during this time, a balance, just as the days are in balance of light and dark. That is one of the amazing gifts Spring time gives to us, balance, renewal, rebirth, new beginnings. With this new energy the old is also at play - being brought to the surface, brought to our attention. Try to notice this and see it as just a way the energy is trying to get your attention, it's letting you know it is time for it to be released. Eclipses are a wonderful time release stuck emotional energies.
With this super New Moon in the final degree of Pisces - this energy is all about loving kindness, compassion, sensitivity to others and Mother Nature, and an empathetic heart. She is the most watery of all the signs, the most emotional, and sensitive. Pisces is also the most spiritual aspect of ourselves connecting us to something larger than our minds, a greater energy, our intuition, and something less fixed and defined. It can be equal parts freeing and scary being in this unknown, abstract world of Pisces. It requires us to cultivate a large amount of faith in the things we know but can not see, and the willingness to be vulnerable. Vulnerability is powerful.
Tap into this place as you think about your future. What are you willing to let go of in your life, that you are gripping to, to move into a place of surrendering to something that is bigger than you? It reminds me of one of my favorite Native American prayers - May you be grateful for the many unknown blessings already on their way. Can you let go and take that leap, while staying connected to your heart and making choices from that place and not from fear? It's like jumping off of a cliff into the ocean with your eyes closed, trusting that what you can not see will catch you. It's really about the faith of the self.
This is a powerful moment for the self, for you as an individual. Connection to your truth with your heart open will allow you to fully help to heal others in the world. Coming from this place is incredibly powerful. You are incredibly powerful. What will you do from this place?
I was thinking about New Moon wishing last night - wonder about this idea that has been beat into us about manifestation. This idea that if we imagine it then we have the power to create it. A new idea that came to me is that maybe "wishing" is just a mask for our intuition. That when we are connected to our souls, our hearts, our truth... it's the wisdom and power of our intuition that has the ability to feel into the future to what is coming to us, or what is possible for us. And that all we have to do is allow it to happen, and believe that we are worthy and deserving of it, and have faith.
Think about that as you make your wishes this month. Really dive deep with your wishes right now. This is an especially important time to be "wishing" from your truest self, your whole heart. Be pure in your intention and in your words. Feel into them as you write them. If you want to leave some in the comments section I fully welcome that. The more you share the more powerful the energy of them becomes. For more information on how to wish head over here.
Happy New Moon!
