The Pisces New Moon Total Solar Eclipse: A Time For Spiritual Healing and Renewal

The Pisces New Moon/ Total Solar Eclipse is exact today, March 8th at 5:26 pm PST/ 8:26 pm EST.

Each New Moon provides a direct channel for new beginnings and an opportunity to set intentions for the month ahead, but today, unlike any other, is an extremely significant, rare and powerful day in the heavens. This Pisces Solar Eclipse is the opening of a portal for a deeply transformative and regenerative time in our lives. Today marks the beginning of a new eclipse cycle for the 2016 year, and it is also a Super Moon, making this naturally potent energy even more compelling.

A Super Moon occurs when the Moon is closest to the Earth, making it appear larger in the sky. In turn, this energy has an even greater effect on the tides, our bodies and our emotions. Today, the Eclipse is exact at 18.56 degrees Pisces, while the Earth, Sun and Moon are all closely configured and aligned together, creating the foundation for this powerful celestial event.

I am channeling the Pisces New Super Moon Solar Eclipse to be a deeply powerful time for spiritual healing and cleansing; a time to be compassionate not only toward others but especially toward ourselves. We must use this powerful energy to put our dreams and highest aspirations into motion and to tap into our higher selves to better align toward our Divine purpose and calling.

Pisces is the twelfth sign of the zodiac, and it is this energy that helps bridge the ethereal, spiritual realm with the tangible reality we experience here on Earth. That is the the Virgo/Pisces polarity. A Pisces Moon is a deeply intuitive and dreamy time. It is an opportunity to embrace the more perceptive, psychically sensitive aspects of ourselves and to become more awakened to the experience of life being an interwoven web and an unitive whole. It breaks open the ego, our limiting and sometimes destructive construct of self, and opens us up to tune into the Universe and the universal flow. It dissolves the illusion of separation and time, centering our collective psyche toward illumination and providing a channel to fully integrate all aspects of self toward unity with others and with nature. Pisces energy feels all things and goes beyond the dimensions of our reality. Now is the time to tune into the Divine consciousness to help renew hope and restore faith. It is time to call on our higher selves to energetically and spiritually uplift and guide us toward our greater cosmic purpose.

There is an intense, concentrated energy of planets in the heavens today. The Sun (our heart), Moon (our soul) Mercury (our mind), Neptune (our sense of perception and spirit), Chiron (self healing) and the South Node (the past) have all come together in the constellation of Pisces. Out of all these planets, I feel the close conjunction of Chiron and the South Node with the current Sun/Moon/Earth combination is the most significant.

Chiron is the archetype of the wounded healer and it is the aspect in a personal natal chart where each soul will find healing in this lifetime. Chiron highlights where in past lifetimes healing has been elusive at best, and deeply scarring, inhibiting and traumatic at its worst.

We are all in search of emotional and spiritual transcendence during our journey, both on an individual and a collective level. Tapping into the potent energy of this eclipse, will help serve as a catalyst toward greater spiritual growth and evolution. Now is an ideal time to begin work on healing our deepest personal and ancestral wounds and to work toward fully discovering and embracing our spiritual identity.

There is much inner work to be done, and it can all seem incredibly overwhelming and scary, but the energy of this Solar Eclipse can truly serve as a powerful catalyst toward self discovery, revelation and advancement. Now is a serendipitous opportunity toward enlightenment and evolution on the deepest soul level. Taking a leap of faith today can provide a miracle, and will help nurture guidance and acceptance toward the next dimension of self realization.

This is not easy work, so remember to please be kind and deeply compassionate to yourself and toward others through this process. Pisces energy reminds us to be gentle and to be unconditionally filled with love and understanding as we uncover and work through all of the triggers and our deep rooted scars.

This New Moon Solar Eclipse is directly opposing Jupiter in Virgo, further highlighting and expressing the Virgo/Pisces polarity between life here on earth and that which exists in the spiritual realm. This energy helps illuminate the surmountable bridge between what we experience in our reality and the enlightened dream world we aspire to in the heavens. Jupiter helps expand everything it touches, and at 18 degrees in the earthy, practical sign of Virgo, it serves to amplify our power to manifest these dreams to life.

In numerology and step astrology, the number 18 is significant because it holds the key to unlocking the mystery of manifestation. During this Solar Eclipse, be extremely deliberate and specific about what your heart wants (1) and decide and commit to what it is that you truly love (8). One plus eight equals a nine, and nine is the number that traditionally represents Mars energy; it is the energy we assert to create and destroy and the energy we call on to help bring to life what we want to make tangible and real. With Jupiter ruling our wisdom and beliefs, identifying your hearts desire and truly believing in your dream is paramount in making this energy manifest. The potential to imagine, heal and create during this heightened state of awareness is limitless.

Each eclipse is a powerful vortex of energy that marks a monumental time for change. Unlike an ordinary New Moon which highlights the energy for each 28 day lunar cycle and the month ahead, the effects of a Solar Eclipse can last up to six months. This energy is then felt and triggered by each preceding eclipse throughout the duration of the complete cycle- with the ultimate potential for transformation and change lasting up to several years.

Now is the time to not only start with a fresh perspective, but to really dive in and go deep. Trust yourself and your heart in the process. Do the work needed to heal and renew every aspect of yourself and your soul. Fear, pain and doubt are all illusions that serve to separate and hold us back; allow these feelings to completely dissolve as you are gently and lovingly being restored and tuned in to your most pure, conscious and Divine state. The impact of this energy can have a dramatic, profound and lasting effect if you seize it and use it wisely.

I wish you many New Moon blessings on your journey today, and I am sending infinite love, compassion and healing energy out to you all. I pray you are surrounded and uplifted by this positive energy, and I pray that it lovingly supports, comforts and guides you through your process of self discovery and healing. May you channel this powerful energy toward your greatest good, your highest vibration and your true soul purpose.

First New Moon of 2016: Saturday, January 9th

The FIRST New Moon of 2016 is exact today at 5:31 PM PST in the zodiac sign of Capricorn. A New Moon is the celestial event when both the Sun and Moon meet in the heavens, when the Moon passes over the Sun. The Moon changes signs every 2.5 days, so this is the beginning of a new 28 day Moon cycle. In astrological terms, this alignment is known as a conjunction, or as I like to call it, a cosmic kiss in the sky.  

The Sun is your center of self; your vitality, your essence, your spirit. The Moon rules your feelings; our emotions, the Mother and what comforts us. When these two luminaries meet, it is our heart and our feelings coming together, synchronistically aligned to make decisions and manifest. A New Moon is the best time to set intentions and plant the seeds for what you’d like to grow in the next month ahead. In the earthy, powerful sign of Capricorn, now is the perfect time to align your goals with changes needed to be made in your immediate reality in order to manifest your dreams to life.

Today is the perfect time to nurture your ambitious nature. Capricorn energy is focused and deliberate, and with this New Moon, our consciousness (Sun) and instinctual nature (Moon) more easily align to drive us closer to accomplishing tasks that will bring fulfillment and propel us toward our goals.  Today our awareness and emotions have help from the planet Pluto, which is conjunct the Sun/Moon combination within a three degree orb. Pluto is ruled by Scorpio and is the planet of transformation and personal power. It helps us break through and break free of old paradigms and whatever is holding us back. This is the reason why Pluto rules the death and rebirth cycle.  It brings the death of what is no longer serving us to make room for the creation and birth of something new. Pluto will help us define our goals today, because with Mercury in Retrograde, you may be questioning the details and in which way to go or where you’re headed. Call on the energy of Pluto today to be the authority of your own personal power. Anything created now has the ability to sustain.  Pluto conjunct both the Sun and Moon will help clear out the darkest remnants of the past to help overcome challenges and the most perplexing obstacles. 

This New Moon energy is also triggering the prevailing Uranus/Pluto square we have been experiencing since 2012. Uranus is ruled by Aquarius and brings electrically charged energy toward revelations and revolutionary change. A breakdown needs to occur so we can finally reach a breakthrough in our collective consciousness. We must release today, as light from the heavens is shining down on us to push us forward toward personal healing and renewal. There is a powerful force of energy toward either growth or destruction, and it is up to us to decide. Channel this energy for your greatest good, as it can either be a day of personal empowerment or power struggles within yourself and with those around you.

During each New Moon phase, I love to perform what I call my “Moon Ceremonies” and time them as closely as I can to the moment the conjunction is exact in the sky. I find comfort in clearing my personal space with sage, collecting all my crystals and casting them in a circle. I light candles, visualize my intentions, and say prayers and meditate in the sacred space I create in my home. I find it both empowering and rejuvenating, and for me, it’s the perfect way to clear my energy field, define my goals and put forth positive energy into the Universe for the month ahead.

Sending so much love and positive energy out to you all and wishing you many New Moon blessings on this beautifully powerful day. May your intentions be clear, your mind be focused and your heart be pure. Believe in your vision, it can and will manifest ❤️

Full Moon in Scorpio: Wednesday, May 14th 2014

 

The Full Moon is exact at 23 degrees Scorpio and occurs Wednesday, May 14th at 12:16 PDT/3:16 EDT and 7:16 GMT.

A Full Moon is the lunar phase that occurs when the Moon is completely illuminated by the Sun as seen from our view on earth.  In Astrology, a Full Moon phase suggests something within the subconscious (the Moon) becomes illuminated into the conscious awareness (the Sun).

Wednesday’s Full Moon in Scorpio highlights the deep, intense and transformational energy which has been quite the focus as of late, especially after the recent Lunar and Solar Eclipses and the Cardinal Grand Cross of April.  Scorpio energy is of the water element and is fixed in nature, and expresses its need for depth and transformation through intimacy and emotional truths.  As with all Full Moon phases, it is an extremely intense and emotional time for us all.  Whenever Scorpio energy is involved, it encourages us to dig even deeper and further under the surface, into the shadows of our subconscious and our emotions, to inspire and ignite a necessary change.

The Sun in Taurus is now in direct opposition with the Moon in Scorpio.  This suggests we are in a struggle with how we value ourselves and our perception of how others value us.  It is a power struggle between our higher spiritual selves and the material values and perceptions of the outside world.  Don’t fall victim to the boundaries and expectations of others or the illusions these perceptions create in our minds.  It is time to figure out what actions and thought patterns aren’t working in our lives and to face them head on.  It’s time to fully examine all the  “teddy bears” we are still holding on to that are in reality holding us back.  Let it all go.  Refuse to allow anything to take up energy or space in your consciousness unless it is divinely aligned with what you value at your core and hold true in your heart.  Now is the time to dive deep beneath the surface to determine what truly matters to you, to prioritize how you really feel and take that wisdom to transcend to new heights.

Recognizing self sabotaging behaviors and breaking free from old paradigms of thought takes perseverance and is the most significant catalyst toward moving forward with a brave heart.  It takes wisdom to know what needs to be changed, and raw, deliberate courage to integrate it into your conscious awareness and make change happen.  Courage is everything now, as you move deeper into faith, and further commit to surrendering to inner truth.   Now is the time for new values and new ways of life.  Challenge yourself to fully examine what is bringing you down and renounce it completely at the core of your being.  Extract the truth and allow it to rise up through your emotions, just like the Phoenix rising from the ashes.  Remain in gratitude for the lessons learned and take ownership of your part of it, then allow yourself to detach and consciously take action to shift things into a higher frequency.  There is so much great potential for renewal, rebirth and the reemergence of a new, higher vibrational self after such a deep purge.  Although it may not always seem apparent, the truth is forever lying underneath it all.
