New Moon in Pisces - Lessons in Healing

This week, the big news is the new moon happening in Pisces.  If you're a Pisces, this is like your own personal new year. It's time for setting intentions for the year ahead.  Even if you're not a Pisces, this new moon marks an opportunity to deal with and heal the parts of your life that are wounded.  Chiron (the wounded healer), amplifies this focus on deep healing, by drawing our attention to where and how we can use our greatest wounds, to help us grow more powerful in the long run. 
The Judgment card reversed, reminds us to learn from our woundings, and past mistakes, rather than being overly self-critical, and getting stuck in our old patterns, and stories.
Once we face these healing lessons, we will be able to leap forward with the support of the Spring Equinox (when the Sun moves into Aries on March 20th), and with an extra boost from Mars who will join Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn for the next two months.

Some of the planetary energy (Mercury and Venus) are shifting signs from watery, disorienting, spiritual Pisces, into fiery, action-oriented, instinctual, and impulsive Aries. We should already be sensing this shift on some level. Particularly in the areas of our chart that house Mercury and Venus. Chiron, the wounded healer, is making it's way through the last degrees of Pisces over the next six weeks or so. We may have some healing loose ends in the area of our chart that contains Pisces in particular. Chiron is all about growing stronger in the broken places. Life isn't always easy, and we all have our own wounds, but if we can learn and grow from them, we will be stronger and better for it, in the long run. We may also be able to use our own healing journey, in service to others. Finally, Jupiter in Scorpio is going retrograde until July. After a long period of expansion that began in October, 2017 in the area of our chart that contains Scorpio, it's time to turn inward and reflect on where we perhaps have been overdoing it in our lives, where we need to be more honest with ourselves, where we need to adjust our beliefs, expectations in order to reap the rewards of Jupiter when it moves direct. And as always, our card for the week, The Two of Swords, supports and reinforces all of this!

There's a magical mystery tour happening this week folks!  Pisces is running the show!  

This can feel dreamy, compassionate, confusing, elusive, magical, and hard to pin down. It's the perfect time to trust the process, and have faith in the bigger plan.  It's also a great time for a dose of practical, grounded Virgo medicine.  Mars will eventually encourage us to take some action, and not just float around in escapist mode... which is where too much Pisces can take us if we're not staying grounded and paying attention.

This isn't necessarily super comfortable energy for everyone, but it can be just what we need if we learn to navigate the waters.

This week is still very Piscean, with a big dose of earthy, detail-oriented, healing Virgo.

The full moon in Virgo illuminates the areas of life where we need to get right with ourselves, our daily routines, and each other. Healing is a big theme this week. Healing requires a blend of complimentary opposites in many ways - purification, dissolving, trusting the process, discernment, wisdom, compassion, and allowing. When Virgo and Pisces work together in a balanced way -powerful, wise, healing, magic happens.

Mars square mercury (and the other planets in Pisces) in the mix, may have us feeling impatient, frustrated, competitive, and a little confused. This is passing energy, so try not to get too worked up or overly emotional about it all.

Early next week, Mercury and Venus will move into Aries and we will feel a fresh spark in matters of mind, communication, and what we hold near and dear to our hearts.

Ultimately this week, trust yourself, trust the process.

Aquarius Solar Eclipse. Life is What Happens When We're Busy Making Other Plans!    Restlessness, Shake Ups, Insights, and Sudden Shifts.
I've been feeling the eclipse vibes in a big way!  I actually had some trouble getting my words out today, because my brain is a bit of a jumble right now.  But, I got my act together eventually, so bear with me!

This week, the Solar Eclipse in conjunction with Mercury, sextile Uranus, and square Jupiter, is likely to bring about flashes of insight, sudden change, opportunity, exaggerated emotions, and new beginning that may feel a little uncertain. 
The Hierophant has a message to be mindful of how we're conforming, to align ourselves with groups, traditions, and a tribe that feels right for us.  It also reminds us that we grow stronger in the broken places.  Is it time to be your own shaman?  Or do you need to search out teachers and guides that resonate with you?  The time for the blending of science/tradition,  and spirituality, is ripe.
