Friday, March 4 is the New Moon in Pisces. Through the week we experience waning Moon energy, which for some feels low key as if a wave pattern is reaching a trough or low point; to some New Moon energy is nervous. Waning Moon pushes us toward a sense of closure or completion, things that a good few people struggle with; it sometimes feels like a deadline is approaching. So as you move through the week, do so with a sense of wrapping up and getting ready to move onto new projects and situations.
This particular New Moon is conjunct one of those odd, slow-moving minor planets that’s out a little past Pluto. It’s one we don’t mention often here, called Borasisi, which is making a long, slow trek through Pisces. Like Pisces itself, Borasisi addresses themes of belief, and how what we believe has a tendency to become true. The New Moon is also square a galactic point called the Great Attractor, which tends to polarize the energy of situations, and can stir up a good bit of controversy.
You may find yourself repelling certain people, drawing others toward you and in general wondering why people are having such strong reactions to you. Such is the vibration of the Great Attractor. One thing I suggest is that while people are reacting to you and while you’re reacting to them, notice the stories you’re making up and see what they tell you — about yourself.
In astrology, a New Moon symbolizes a new beginning, and while we’re not there yet, we are approaching that point. But completion is a good thing to do before beginning, so I suggest you work in that order.
In western astrology, Pisces is the 12th solar house, the last of the cycle. Pisces is like the ocean into which the experience of the previous eleven solar houses dissolves. Like the deep sea, it is an abyss into which the vast and mysterious waters have collected, both concentrating and diluting their essence. It relates to things too large to comprehend, but which we’re looking at all the time, taking for granted. There is paradox, bliss, mystery and awe combining into a spiritual component that is also present as something palpable. The New Moon in Pisces is thus like a very old soul born into a new body.
This is a personal and emotional New Moon, a beginning informed by all that has gone before, and that makes it both timely and appropriate that the luminaries should be sharing their conjunction with Borasisi and its binary companion, Pabu. When an event involving the Sun or Moon is conjunct a planet, that planet tends to reveal itself. So while we may have ideas about a new planet, it’s a good idea to observe both events and yourself to see what happens.
