Pisces New Moon, March 4, 2011

© Ron Cameron

 

Pisces dominates this New Moon at 13° 56″ Pisces on March 4, 2011 12:47 PM PST. There are five planets in the twelfth sign of the zodiac, immersing us in this subtle water sign – the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars and Uranus along with the asteroid, Chiron.

Where ever Pisces falls in your chart deserves your full attention on this lunation because if you have unfinished business there, now is the time to address it. If there ever was an ideal time to quietly sort through the matters of the house Pisces rules in your chart, this is it. Once the Aries volume starts cranking up, that’s it, folks! Remember Jupiter led the way into Aries with Mercury following him on March 9 and the biggie, Uranus, on March 11.

Speaking of Jupiter in Aries, he is part of a small triangular formation with Mars in Pisces at the apex and the waning square to Pluto in Capricorn as the base. This gives Mars in Pisces far more edge than he usually has and normally mild mannered types could surprise their friends and co-workers by standing up for themselves and speaking out in defense of their cherished compassionate values. Pisces is often the champion of the underdog and those who cannot defend themselves. Besides most Pisces folks often have a Scorp or three for back up, not to mention friends in high places (Pluto in Capricorn).

Pisces, in my opinion, is often underestimated because they are chameleons, happy to show others the face they want to see while keeping far more to themselves. It has been said Pisces has a bit of all the signs within them and that’s why they are so good at blending in. Whimsical, amusing, generally kind and as tough as nails is a fair description of your average Pisces.

Saturn in Libra is inconjunct the New Moon, providing support with reservations. Libra and Pisces are generally pretty friendly but they do have different priorities. Saturn in Libra is committed to fairness and equity from an intellectual perspective while the New Moon in Pisces illuminates the need for compassion first and foremost. Both parties can be satisfied though because compromise is in both Libra and Pisces vocabularies.

Venus is newly arrived in cool, detached Aquarius and forms no major aspects at this time. Venus in Aquarius can be described as faithful but not rigid and not given to jealousy. Love is more of an intellectual exercise than expression of passion under this influence. Besides, most of us will be too busy taking care of old business to make time for romance right now anyway.

This is a very focused New Moon chart with Saturn in Libra as the leading planet of a Bowl Pattern, making it easier than usual for normally languid Pisces to step up and get things done. Just remember to be kind and forgiving of others as you bustle around wrapping up all those loose ends!

On a personal note: The New Moon exactly conjoins the cusp of my fourth house with Mars on the third house side and Uranus closing on the cusp of my fifth. Saturn in Libra conjoins my Moon, ruler of the natural fourth house, so taking care of home and family matters will top my “to do” list. Not sure if this means I will be cleaning my closets and washing woodwork but those are possibilities with spring house-cleaning on my mind these days! :D

    My natal MC is at 13 degrees 27 minutes Pisces.

    I have been wanting (and needing) a new career challenge for years now (I tried to rework things at my current job, it can’t happen unfortunately). I will DEFINITELY try and figure out what I still need to wrap up, but at this point it seems like I just need some forward movement (I look for new jobs all the time, times are tough in my area)!

    I am hopefully this New Moon is the spark that gets things going! :)

      Welcome Jacqueline,

      I have been wanting (and needing) a new career challenge for years now (I tried to rework things at my current job, it can’t happen unfortunately). I will DEFINITELY try and figure out what I still need to wrap up, but at this point it seems like I just need some forward movement (I look for new jobs all the time, times are tough in my area)!

      My best estimate is the New Moon might bring something interesting for you but it might not be obvious initially. Pisces is like that.

      As long as Uranus is sitting at 29 Pisces, real momentum is going to erratic at best. It’s an itchy degree, demanding resolution. Personally I am looking forward to Uranus finally moving into Aries!

        Thank you Diane. :)

        I will keep my eyes open, but not expect a flashing neon sign pointing “this way to new career!” ;) (I wish it could be that easy though! :D )

          but not expect a flashing neon sign pointing “this way to new career!” ;)

          With a Pisces MC, you are more likely to back into a new career than finding one of those flashing neon signs! :P

          BTW, do you have Taurus or Gemini Rising? My Virgo/Pisces MC/IC comes with a Scorpio/Taurus ASC/DES.

            Cancer Asc (8 degrees 55 minutes) which in all honesty I just don’t see it… but that is the whole point right? ;) People who don’t know me see it, but people who do know me just see my Pisces Moon or Aries Sun. :)

    That photo. Either someone’s sleeping peacefully in that boat… or Friday the 13th’s Jason popped out of the water for the kill five minutes ago!

    I’ve been very lovey-dovey. And while I don’t ordinarily like March, I’m looking forward to a few projects I’ll be conducting then :).

    XO,

      Hey Deb! :)

      LOL!! I so didn’t need that image in my head!! :D

      I’ve been very lovey-dovey. And while I don’t ordinarily like March, I’m looking forward to a few projects I’ll be conducting then :) .

      Sweet! I suspect Libras everywhere are going to catch a big rush of energy via partners of every kind in March & April!

    I’ve also been job hunting for the past two and a half years w/o any luck so far. I’m Scorpio with a Leo rising and Gemini moon, do you see me working anytime soon? Much obliged, D.

    p.s. I also liked that picture very much, stared at it for a few minutes, pictured myself in the boat and felt very calm and peaceful.

      Welcome Dharma,

      Without seeing your whole chart, Dharma, I can only speculate. Jupiter in Aries has/or will be trine your Leo ASC at some point and perhaps that will brighten your outlook.

      If you wish, you can send me your birth data using the form on my Reports page and I’ll see what jumps out. FYI – I NEVER share anyone’s private info without express permission.
