Pisces New Moon

And here we are at the final sign of the zodiac.  Are you ready to melt?  Are you ready to dissolve?  Are your ready to finally go with the flow?    I see you nodding your head.   Great.  Me, too. 

You will find my whole NewMoon report on MargaretWendt's website HERE 

Here is a snippet but go to link for full report:

March 1, 2014

10 Pisces 39

The last sign of the zodiac is Pisces and it is the final water sign.   In Cancer the water is loud crashing waves pounding on the shore, emotions are big.   In Scorpio deep watery caves hold mysterious creatures and sunken treasure only accessed by depth seeking emotions.   In Pisces the mighty currents that swirl in large oceans pull on the emotions to float and glide.  Pisces starts its journey off the coast of one land and within a few days without much effort he arrives off the coast of a new faraway territory.   Having followed only the currents.  We learn how to observe currents during Pisces and how to go with the flow taking care to trust the journey but not get pulled into the weeds.   Perhaps the most tender of signs, Pisces speaks to us in our dreams, our intuition and our faith.  Pisces knows there is something greater than our little lives on Earth when we are willing to tune in.    

As we have been discussing for the last few months we are in an extraordinary time astrologically speaking.  In April the tension will be great as Uranus/Pluto/Jupiter & Mars dig into each other.    For the last six months (since Virgo new moon)  we have been clearing out boulders that could be getting in our way because as stressful as the cardinal cross aspects can be they also can provide opportunities.    We use the energy of the lunar cycle to support any changes we need to make because as we know if we don’t make the changes, THE UNIVERSE WILL.  And arguably the one sign that speaks more to the will of the Universe is Pisces.   

For twenty eight days, watch how you flow.  Are you going with a current? Or are you fighting it?  Why?  And there will be situations that float by you where you will say, “Not my problem”.  And for others, like salmon swimming upstream many of us will be guided to go down a stream that seems rife with complications but we just ‘know’ we need to be there.    Go inward find your inner compass and you will learn a lot about going with the flow.    Also, Pisces knows how to melt and dissolve.  What do you look like if you dissolve your pointy ridges?     What if you let your problems melt away and not give them too much energy?   Not ignore them but not empower them?    Explore the power of melting and dissolving this cycle.   Also, get lost in art and music.  Let it call to you in a profound way. 

This Pisces New Moon we are gifted with a Sun/Moon in terrific aspect with Jupiter and a very nice aspect with Pluto.   Great.  Since Jupiter and Pluto are two of the warriors in April it is nice that they will be speaking to us during this cycle.  Jupiter brings doorways and bridges.  Pluto purges and unplugs. Drains that have backed up and been stagnant may suddenly get cleared.    Watch for openings and connections (Jupiter) that pop up during this cycle especially after a big emotional purge (Pluto).  Also in the mix is a Sun/Moon conjunction with Neptune, which is a benefit since Neptune is the planet that rules Pisces.  This is like the boss opening up his office and resources to help you and your department accomplish everything you want.  Being in synch with Neptune is a great blessing.  Watch the next 28 days for synchronicity and serendipitous moments. They are not an accident and ask yourself if they are pointing you into a new current?

The Sun/Moon are also in conjunction with Chiron, which can be a difficult process.  Chiron is like the movie Groundhogs’ Day. We wake up and seem to be doing the same thing over and over and over again.   In the case of Chiron in Pisces it speaks to where we feel out of control, at the hands of some force greater than us.  It brings out the victim and the perpetrator.   Chiron is half man half horse and Pisces is two fish swimming in different directions.  They both have a dualistic quality.   It is interesting that the Sochi Olympics were only a few hundred kilometers from the Ukraine protests.  As we know in nature the poison and the antidote are often near one another.  I must say I have thought a lot about Chiron in Pisces as we have been challenged by our new weather patterns. Anyway, for the next 28 days we may see patterns come up that need processing and healing.   Especially anyone who has planets at 10-12 degrees of Gemini, Virgo, Sag and Pisces.  And I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that the Cra-Cra will come out of the woodwork these 28 days.  Why wouldn’t they? It is Pisces, Neptune’s in the mix and Chiron is on top of the Sun and Moon—to the crazy that is “playball”.    When the crazy come out find your center and not get sucked into their vortex.   Remember trust!

Mercury Direct

Friday Feb 28
9:00am EST

Mercury Direct
18 Aquarius 12
Has the last three weeks had a bunch of confusion? Has anyone rear ended someone in a new range rover (cough, hubby, cough)?  How about having your credit card get compromised and fraudulant charges show up?  Enough about me.  The good news is that Mercury will be flying right Friday Morning.

We began the retrograde with Mercury in Pisces.   How did we find our faith in the last few weeks?
How did we find our muse?  How did we find our connectedness in an unworldly manner?   Now with the direct we are once again thinking about our groups.  Are we with our likeminded peeps?  Why or why not?   How are we finding our higher selves?  And how do we commuicate it?  And how do others support us?

Lots to think about but more to the point just burn a big fat votive and thank the lord Mercury is flying straight!

The Last Sabian Symbol

We are in the last week of the 28-Day Aquarius cycle and I was thinking about some of the thrills and spills of the last three weeks and the accuracy of the Sabian symbol for Aquarius New Moon. Every new moon I offer up the Sabian Symbol for the New Moon.   I had a feeling this one might have been especially prescient.  I'm wondering if the rest of you noticed it as well?     Here is what I wrote in my  report.

10-11 degree of Aquarius
 During A Silent Hour, A Man Receives A New Inspiration Which May Change His Life

Wow---that is a powerful Sabian symbol.  Read it twice.

The next new moon starts on March 1 launching the Pisces lunar cycle for 28 days.   That Sabian symbol for 10-11 degrees of Aquarius is:

Men Traveling A Narrow Path, Seeking Illumination. 

I'm interested to see how this plays out next month.

The Week Ahead

Monday will be in the last quarter lunar phase.  The phase started on Saturday and the emphasis is on philosophy and beliefs.      

Last Quarter moon:  Now we do the final adjustments to the seeds we planted on new. The final call, the final letters to send, we follow all the trails that came up that still make sense.  And we let the other parts lay fallow. It is a time of action but wise action.  It is a time for living  “The serenity prayer

God, grant me the Serenity
to accept the things
I cannot change Courage to change the
things I can, and the
Wisdom to know the difference.

Focus on:
What actions can you take that speak to your philosophy and beliefs about your aspirations?  What do you believe about your place in society?  What are your opinions and judgments about your circle of like minded people and what actions are you taking to support those opinions?

Also on Monday we will be getting our weekly cardinal clusterf$%k.   As we have been discussing, for the next few months the cardinal moons are activating Jupiter, Mars, Uranus and Pluto.   The tension created by these four planets is of course palatable.   The moon hits a cardinal sign once a week and while the cardinal crosses are in effect the moon doubles down the cra-cra.   

Watch what unfolds during Moon in Libra and the cross planets.  All in EST 
Monday 8:50am Moon enters Capricorn
Tuesday 2:15am Moon square Uranus
Tuesday 6:20am Moon opposition Jupiter
Wednesday 2:33am Moon square Mars

Then on Tuesday we move into Balsamic moon.

We let go.  By releasing we can prepare for the new.  
This balsamic we are focused on:
We release our pretensions.   We release our haughtiness.  We release our sourness.  We release our ego attached to our career.   We release our cheapness.

And of course on Tuesday all eyes are on Jupiter square Uranus.   This is what I wrote about the Jupiter/Uranus  a month ago:
Then on Feb 26 Jupiter will dig in with Uranus.   Righteousness meets rebellion.   Globally it feels similar to the “Arab Spring” which turned out to be a whole lot of rebellion and overthrow but no real changes.   Jupiter can gloss over stuff and with Uranus ‘change for change sake’ could be at play.   I would caution against that path.  Instead dig in deep and learn (Jupiter) what is your emotional history (Cancer) and what are the changes (Uranus) you can make that will bring new paths (Aries).   Don’t just move the deck furniture around on the Titanic.

So, here we are ...Jupiter/Uranus  We can see rebellion and righteousness, turning the tables.  And bingo--- look no further than the Ukraine to get a sense of what is going on both globally and personally.    Let's see how this week plays. 

On Friday we all get down on the earth and French kiss the dirt because Mercury turns direct.   Hurray, hurray…hurray.

And merciful lord has Jupiter in sync with the sun for some spiritual and family breakthroughs.   Pour something brown on ice and start sipping.

Saturday is New Moon.  More to come on that one.

Nodes Change Sign

I need apologize, I totally forgot to give you guys a heads up about the nodes changing signs. I know I talked about it in the fall and I think early winter and I had it in my notes but I totally forgot to up up this cycle.   So, here I am one day after the sign change.   The nodes are in a sign for about two years.    We have been processing North Node/South Node in Scorpio and shadow Taurus since 2012. Now we have begun a new chapter.  Relationships and negotiations are in the hot seat.  

Remember the nodes are not a planet.  They are a point, way too complicated to explain the point but it involves the sun and the moon and earth.  

In your natal chart when you look at your north node you are looking at where you need to stretch. It is the karmic doorway.   When I first started studying nodes many years ago I was blown away by the charts of my friends and how perfect the nodes spoke to their souls.    As a friend I could see, the lesson a bit more clearer than my friends  but with time and time and time, my friends would find themselves really understanding their nodes.  Not by anything I told them or what they read but just as they evolved.  The nodes speak to our evolution.  We are born with a karma and dharma path.  The south node is the easy path, the path of least resistance it is the skill that we know so well (from a previous lifetime) but what stretches us (this lifetime) is to "do" the north node.  Do what the north nodes asks but use the knowledge of the south to provide the ballast.  

We are put on notice that relationships, finding balance, looking at the other person's perspective, finding an equilibrium BUT not selling out, no giving up on YOU.  Remember Aries is self and that is where we find our ballast and to continue the metaphor, in rough seas a sailor always wishes for more ballast.     So, stretch, negotiate, keep cool (Libra is air sign) use strategy but don't sell out for  'peace at any cost.'  

How was your Feb 19th? Did you feel the shift?
So begins this next two year journey.

Elsa's Take --Coming to you!

Elsa from ElsaElsa has an offer that might appeal to you.   She has drafted a report on the upcoming/ongoing cardinal stresses.      I have not read it but I have read Elsa's blog and find her take very approachable.
You might want to consider ordering a preport if you are feeling the tension and want a little more in depth knowlege.


spring flowersI’m going on an extended vacation with my family, my first in ten years!  I won’t be available for consultations for several weeks during this very tense period.
The whole period is so dicey, I decided offer a guide to cover this time. I’ve been working on this behind the scenes It’s ready to go!
The guide begins with an overview. I then break it down into smaller chunks that cover specifics. These topics are covered:
March 1, 2014 – New Moon in Pisces & Mars Retrograde
March 5, 2014 – Venus Enters Aquarius
March 62014 – Jupiter Turns Direct
March 102014 – Mercury Square Saturn
March 16, 2014 – Full Moon in Virgo
March 17, 2014 – Mercury in Pisces
March 20, 2014 – Sun in Aries
March 22, 2014 – Mercury Conjunct Neptune
March 29, 2014 – Venus Square Saturn
April 1-3 2013 – Sun Meets the Cardinal T-Square
April 4, 2014 – Venus in Pisces
April 7 – Mercury Enters Aries
April 10, 2014 – Cardinal Grand Cross… Until Mid-May
April 14-15, 2014 – Lunar Eclipse in Libra, Pluto Retrograde, Mercury Conjunct Uranus, Square Pluto and Opposite Mars
April 22-23, 2014 – Cardinal Grand Cross @ 13 degrees
April 29, 2014 – Solar Eclipse in Taurus
The guide is written in my storytelling style. It will help you see the big picture and keep perspective through this truly exciting and historic period.  It’s serious and tragic in places, but it’s also funny. I prefer to be entertained by life!
People often tell me they wish they had my newsletters or blog posts further in advance.  I understand why. It helps with planning and it gives them an edge. But it’s hard for me to manage that. These guides are perfect to fill that gap.
If you want a solid advantage as we head into this epic storm – Knowledge Is Power is now available for download!

yeah, the moon was cardinal

If you weren't paying attention because you were busy putting out your own fires, an already ugly situation in the Ukraine turned uglier as Moon's transit in Libra activating this week's cardinal clusterf$%k.

Of course, Putin who is having a coming out party in Sochi (Pluto much?) has his hands all over this mess.

Coming up this week

Monday is still full moon phase.  The tension among friends is palpable.  Everyone trying to find their place in society and with like minded.   Read Full Moon post for more details. 

Also on Monday we begin this week’s cardinal clusterf$#%k
Watch what unfolds during this process (Eastern Time)
Monday Moon in Libra 1:23pm
Tuesday Moon opposite Uranus 9:00am
Tuesday Moon square Jupiter  10:18am
Tuesday Moon square Pluto 2:04pm
Wednesday Moon square Venus 2:45am
Wednesday Moon conjunct Mars 4:52pm

On Tuesday the 18th, the moon moves into Disseminating phase which puts the emphasis on sharing knowledge with particular focus on relationships.  Also on the 18th the sun moves into Pisces.   The gentleness of Pisces will be appreciated by all of us even if it gets a little cuckoo. 

February 18
6:41 pm EST
Disseminating Moon Phase

Disseminating: Share information; find a teacher or someone who has more knowledge. Perhaps there was a big ol’ blow out on the full and one feels in need of support and help, this is the phase to reach out to one who knows more. This is when we find a rabbi or a minister or therapist who gives us more insight.   And of course, you too may be ready to teach and share your own information. 

Focus on: How are sharing your partnerships?  How are you sharing what works in your relationships?  What is your partner sharing?  What are you sharing about balance?  Where are others sharing the power of balance? 

Special focus:
2/19: Mercury/Saturn:  Cold, sharp thinking,  sharp tongue, cutting
