We’ll be diving off the deep end into the endless waters of Pisces on the New Moon at 2° 42′ Pisces on 21 February 2012 at 02:35 PM PST and getting a taste of what having Neptune in Pisces is all about. I wouldn’t plan on being able to process this experience in short order either because much will not be what seems . . . oh joy. Pisces folk are going to love this New Moon.
Boundary issues will surface with a vengeance and anyone with a strong Neptune signature in their charts, i.e. Neptune in the first house or conjunct a personal planet will probably need to devote time and energy to redefining those. Thankfully we have help in the form of Saturn in Libra. It makes an out-of-sign trine to the New Moon/Neptune pileup. Saturn is the best ever at boundaries. The sextile to the New Moon from Jupiter in earthy Taurus is helpful too though Jupiter’s knack for magnifying existing energies may interfere.
Another thing this blissful New Moon will inspire is dreams of unconditional love, soul mates and merging with your loved one. Best be aware manifesting those dreams is not going to swift or easy as long as Venus in Aries is arguing with retrograde Mars in Virgo. They just can’t seem to resolve their differences. Venus wants to feel free to do whatever she wants, whenever she wants, whilst Mars can’t stop nagging about this minor imperfection and that one. Mercury in Pisces sitting in opposition to Mars isn’t able to smooth things over through effective communication either. My suggestion is to wait until Venus moves into one of her happy places in Taurus on 5 March and feels like being courted again.
Something else Saturn in Libra is doing on this lunation is gently putting the brakes on Uranus in Aries via an out-of-sign inconjunct. The aspect is awkward but the signs can easily find points of agreement. Aries listens to Libra’s tactful opinions, you know. As Uranus is semi-sextile to the New Moon/Neptune, we will appreciate Saturn curbing Uranus’s impatience.
We are still benefiting from a waxing trine between Jupiter in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn for the next month or so. If you are working on strategies to improve your finances or putting together business plans, you might want to get those in place in the near future before this excellent influence begins to fade.
In many ways, this New Moon in Pisces can be seen as the beginning of the new year between Mars finally getting back up to speed in reverse and Jupiter in Taurus moving into high gear. The first New Moon of the year in Aquarius coincided with both Mars stationing and Saturn at a virtual standstill at 29° Libra. Our Neptune inspired dreams are fragile and illusive now, so treat them with care and respect whilst seeking to manifest them. Please treat the dreams of others with equal tenderness and continue to practice kindness and tolerance! Enjoy this lovely New Moon!
On a personal note: This New Moon exactly squares my first house Venus in Sagittarius from my third house, so I need to follow my own advice about nurturing my dreams as well as shoring up my boundaries. It is such a pain to sort out my feelings from those closest to me and that’s what happens when my natal Moon-Neptune conjunction goes all fuzzy on me.
Thankfully for those of us 29° Libra Sun folk, this is the last lunation until the Full Moon in Aries in September we have Saturn sitting on our Suns. Only a couple of weeks left in this pass . . . relief is in sight.© Copyright 2012 Diane L, All rights Reserved. Written For: Libra Seeking Balance
