The New Moon and total Solar eclipse that will occur tomorrow (3/8/16) has a major spotlight on Pisces. Look at what house rules Pisces in your natal chart to see where this influence is happening most significantly for you personally. Also, if your Sun/Moon/Rising sign is in Pisces, or if you have “a lot going on” with planets/asteroids/Lilith in the house ruled by Pisces in your natal chart, this upcoming Solar eclipse is likely to have an especially powerful effect on you.
Luna enters the waters of Pisces at 11:08am today (PST). Pisces is traditionally ruled by Jupiter, which is probably why it has a reputation for being the sweetest, kindest and most altruistic of the three water signs. Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac, universally ruling the 12th house of karma, blind-spots, the subconscious and the soul. The modern ruler of Pisces is Neptune, who is both the master of confusion and deception, as well as the magician of dreams, psychic-awareness and inspiration. Neptune himself is riding through the waters of Pisces until 2025. Neptune is strong here, holding court. Right now the Sun, Mercury, Chiron and the South Node are all in Pisces together. The Moon is about to join the bubble bath with them, and Venus will soon follow suit this coming Saturday. It looks like the Piscean Sea is the place to be right now!
My natal Moon is in Pisces, who rules my 10th house of career and social status. Natal Moon is all about inner-self, intimacy, soul and emotions. Am I feeling these transits? Why yes, I am.
When the Moon’s shadow covers the Earth on Tuesday, both Moon and Sun in Pisces will be directly opposite Jupiter in Virgo. Oppositions represent challenges, but Jupiter is ceaselessly benevolent, even when he is in the sign of his detriment. In Virgo, Jupiter expands issues of health, work and service. In opposition to both Moon and Sun in Pisces, he has a sobering effect. We are being asked to add practicality and sensible action to our dreams right now. We are also being reminded to not skimp on self-care!
This year’s only total Solar eclipse will be visible from Indonesia and from the nearby Pacific Ocean. It will be exact at 5:54pm PST on Tuesday. You don’t have to see an eclipse in order to feel it and work with its energy.
New Moon rituals are always a beautiful thing, a time to go within, entering the void of your own being. Ground your awareness in this dark space. The Piscean Sea is being stirred by a powerful hand and a reckoning is occuring. If you are in denial about anything, it will feel increasingly uncomfortable to let that denial run your life. If illusion is blocking your clear vision or if you are suppressing emotions, the dam is primed to burst. Creativity flows through you when you drop the façade, so whatever it is, drop it now.
All eclipses can act as doorways for change and transformation. Enter this Solar eclipse portal and let the answers you seek rise from your subconscious, from your dreams, from your own psychic awareness. Magick is happening all around us. Big shifts are often necessary for our growth, and we can allow the metamorphic power of an eclipse the pull us through the change like riding a big wave.
Blessings upon your evolution.
