“A fresh new lunar cycle is underway. The dreamy sign of Pisces ever so inspires us to naturally open our hearts, soften the hard edges and forgive trespasses of the past. Small sacrifices, leads to freedom and activates the imagination.”
THIS FRIDAY WE WELCOME THE NEW MOON IN PISCES AS A FRESH START AND A NEW BEGINNING. NEW MOONS ARE POTENT TIMES OF RECEPTIVENESS FOR WITHIN ITS EMPTINESS LIES ALL THE POTENTIAL FOR THE FUTURE…
HERE ARE SOME WONDERFUL READS ON THE NEW ENERGY COMING IN FROM SOME OF MY FAVORITE ASTROLOGERS STARTING WITH THE WONDERFUL DEPALI DESAI
“We need to move on, with a clean slate but first we need to let go. Relax and let go. Allow every muscle in the body to let go instead of contract. What does that feel like? Breathe in deeply and let go. How does that make the body feel? During the Pisces New Moon, you have the space to allow yourself to drift and float in the energy of Universal healing energy. Set the intention. Dream a big dream, forgive in a big way, and plant new symbolic seeds for peaceful future. Compassion is a key theme during the New Moon in Pisces, but not idiot Compassion. We must realize we are all interconnected through the Web of Life, what benefits the all benefits you!
There is a group of planets mingling in Pisces now, Sun/Moon, Mercury, Mars and Uranus plus Chiron. They are all on one team now, working towards a common purpose – to highlight our true Self as Soul. We must view from the lens of Soul to see the Cosmic picture happening now.  Transiting Saturn in Libra (retrograde) is making an inconjunct to the New Moon, this symbolizes that we may have to make some adjustments or redirect the energy to deeply feel the goodness and restore balance within and in the physical world.
Venus has moved into Aquarius, symbolizing our need to experiment and think out of the box to meet new potential partners or start relationships that are unusual (both personal and business). Good time to begin socializing, networking and finding groups that have common or shared ideals and visions. Pitch in and help in your community in some way, helping hands in a practical way is better than a hundred conversations alone. The Jupiter/Pluto square is dissipating now, so there is less amplified intense energy and small breakthroughs are happening. Delays are lifting, timing is everything. Be patient.
Our dream-state activity may be heightened now, symbols give tremendous insight into the bigger picture. We are reminded to embrace our imperfections and relax a little and simply BE. Yes, be still. Be creative. Be quiet. Be in anticipation that the tides are turning. Have faith things are lining up behind the scenes and the invisible helpers from the Universe are conspiring on your behalf. Your job is to BE. Learn what this stillness feels like so you can return to it at any time over the next few months.
Very, very soon, planets in transit will be following Jupiter in Aries, blazing into Aries. The speed of life will pick up dramatically. Mercury, the Sun and then Uranus all arrive at the point of 00 degrees Aries. Watch out Cardinal Signs, Aries, Libra, Cancer and Capricorn the Cosmic Tornado is in town, shocking, surprising and possibly disruptive ….but more on this later!”

HERE IS WHAT SIMONE BUTLER HAS TO SAY:
“On March 9, we enter the Ninth (and final) Wave of the Mayan Calendar. According to Mayan scholar Carl Calleman, this initiates a period of unified consciousness, in which we’ll have the opportunity to step into our highest role in serving the Divine Plan. At this precarious turning point, with old systems crashing down and Piscean fog swirling around us, we can either choose to go with the flow or risk succumbing to fear and confusion. Remember that crisis precedes new birth— and keep breathing!
Adding momentum, Uranus charges into Aries on March 11, catalyzing a dynamic seven-year period that intensifies our collective freedom urge. This revolutionary cycle ushers in brilliant technological advances, breakthroughs in consciousness, increased humanitarian efforts and the rapid destruction of outdated systems— especially as Uranus squares Pluto this summer through 2012 (more on that later). Stay centered in your heart during this accelerated time, and don’t let your mind spin out of control. Let this fresh, exciting Uranus/Aries energy burn away the past and carry you into the future.
The Pisces New Moon is the ideal time to heal the past and envision the future. On March 4, if possible, make a pilgrimage to the ocean or a lake and let your intuitive voice speak to you. Or, create a treasure map of what your heart longs for, and visualize it into being. This is also a great time to use divination tools like the I Ching or Tarot for guidance. The act of divination links you to the divine — within and without. Consulting an oracle is an inspirational way to sense your new direction. “
AND LASTLY SOME THOUGHTS FROM DANA GERHARDT:
“Let your heart likewise expand this cycle. Let your imagination run free. Business can take care of itself. The cherry trees are in bloom. You might be yearning for a little poetry or the delicious escape of a movie marathon. You may get lost in the sound of a symphony or the gentle touch of silk. Can you let yourself drift and dream? Soon enough the Equinox will be calling you to action. Next month brings the Warrior’s New Moon. Prepare now by first drawing closer to your soul.
If you stir dirt into a glass of water, it gets murky. But if the glass sits for awhile, the dirt will settle and the water will clear. Something similar happens to the mind in meditation, which is another fine way to meet this New Moon. Sit. Come to stillness. Wait at Pisces’ door like an initiate at the gates of a great teacher. Without expectations, enter the void. This is the end of the zodiac; all signs are contained within it. Perhaps you can sense this, how harmoniously Pisces holds everything and dissolves everything, how this readies us for the Aries adventures to come.
Of course, no matter how dreamy we might like our lives to be, there’s always some unpleasantness. Sure as there are fairies making everything right, there are complainers making everything wrong. How do we respond? Pisces can inspire our most saintly self—or our most victimized. When you’re unconscious of its gifts, Pisces will make you whine: “Poor me!” or “Why me?” Remember that unhappy dinner last night? Maybe the sesame chicken was too dry. Maybe the salad dressing was bottled instead of fresh. Or maybe your dinner date never showed up. Pisces only wants you to understand that everything was just perfect….
Waiting for Pisces to appear is the fun part. No way can I predict his costume. But if you find yourself wandering into rooms for reasons you forgot, if you feel the urge to float for hours in the bathtub, or to take a long drive to nowhere, Pisces may be present, trying to get you to pause, listen, and come into this moment, where he promises you’ll find everything. Pay attention to your nightly dreams. Listen to your daytime fantasies. These are the expressions of your soul. Can you read their language?”
