The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces that occurred on March 8th, 2016 was an intensely healing time for us all. With The Sun, Moon, Neptune, Ceres and Chiron all in Pisces, we were asked to dive deeply into our own Beings to discover what we needed to let go of in order to make room for the new. It was an intensely feminine, creative and receptive time for us all. If you had the courage to let go of emotional attachments, come the Full Moon, you’ll see the physical manifestation of that courage.
Pisces is a master of change and knows that change is truly the only constant. While working up to the Full Moon, ask yourself, can I let go of anything in my life to make room for new energies and experiences to flow? Can I give away any of my things, can I let go of negative emotions that I hold onto for a sense of security? Wherever Pisces lies in your chart, is where you’re going to have to allow change to occur in order for healing and renewal to begin.
Use the intensely feminine energy of the moment to enter into the universe that dwells within, to discover what your own heart longs for. If a negative situation continues to arise that causes you to feel a negative emotion, question it. When did you first feel that negative emotion? Can you remember the situation clearly? Go over the situation again and again until it no longer causes you any negative emotional response. Send love to the inner child within you. Send love to your “enemies” and they will no longer be enemies. If you can figure out the exact moment when any emotional trauma was created in the body and go to the source of that trauma, it will soon dissipate. Using Neuro-Linguistic Programming exercises can often help make us face painful situations and turn them into events that we can eventually look fondly over. Remember, you CANNOT change the past. What’s done is done, but you can change your perception of it, and that changes the Now.
When the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Libra arrives on the 23rd of March, expect the closure you’ve been waiting for surrounding relationships. If you’ve had the courage to do your inner-work to release outdated emotional programs, you’ll see more clarity, connection and confidence within your interactions. With the Moon cast in shadow, we get a chance to look into the dark side of our own minds when it comes to our partners, and of course, ourselves. Whatever we want someone else to do, is what we crave the most for our own lives. If you notice that your partner is doing something wrong on the Eclipse, instead of pointing it out, simply start implementing what they “should” do yourself. Our reality is a holographic projection of our inner world. If you want change to occur on the external, change yourself.
This might be a tricky thing to remember since Mercury will be in Aries. Aries doesn’t think, it acts! If you’ve been supressing any words, they’ll come bubbling up now… Even more of a reason to release emotional attachments BEFORE the Lunar Eclipse. The Sun and Uranus will also join Mercury in Aries, making us all even more erratic and spontaneous, especially with our words.
Wherever Libra is in your chart is where you’ll be receiving a healing… but with the Moon Eclipsed, expect to be doing some deep shadow work. For example, with my Sun and 3rd House in Libra, I’ll be releasing ego issues which will then translate into how I interact with my environment.
Chiron, Neptune and Venus still in Pisces, we will still be focusing on healing, but rather with the mirror others’ provide. Overly sensitive, sometimes dreamy and even delusional at times, be careful not to fall too deeply into fantasy. Pisces is also the sign of escapism through drugs, food, over-stimulation of any kind… Ground yourself daily by going out for a walk. Place your hands onto the earth. Hug trees. It’ll do wonders for you.
Mars in Sagittarius will be trining Mercury and the Sun and sextiling the Moon. I see these aspects as extra power to speak our truth to our partners. Once again, be wary: Sagittarius is the sign of opinions. We all have em… but of course there’s a time to speak and a time to stay silent. Even if you feel like you’re “right” it may not even matter to someone else’s journey. Don’t waste your energy trying to heal people who aren’t ready to receive your blessings! Remember, sometimes though we may want to help someone in pain with our words, the kindest thing we can do is simply hold space for them.
With the Full Moon opposite Mercury, expect to vacillate between what YOU need and what your partner needs. Find balance by conversing openly without judgement. Always use discernment, but never take anything personally. Approach life from Spirit and witness all unfolding as it should.
With Saturn trine Uranus, expect difficult life lessons to shock you into changing and growing spiritually.
Ask yourself, what do I need most right now in this moment? Am I treating myself with respect, gentleness and compassion? How can I best be of service to humanity?
Dreaming, healing, travelling on the astral planes abound, along with intense spiritual insight and lightning-speed growth when it comes to love.
Have a beautiful Full Moon!
