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.
