Pisces New Moon Solar Eclipse
The big news this week is a Pisces New Moon Solar Eclipse on Tuesday at 5:45 PM PST at 18.57°. It will be visible in the sky in South/East Asia, North/West Australia, and the Pacific and the Indian Ocean. For a map see here. In traditional astrology, the Pisces New Moon Solar Eclipse is felt most potently where it is visible. For a traditional interpretation of the eclipse see Peter Stockinger’s Traditional Astrology Blog here. I am going to explore the aspects in the sky, or the natal chart of this event. Eclipses are liminal occurrences that disrupt our ordinary sense of time. They are approached with trepidation and their influence seems to outreach the bounds of time, sometimes occurring before or after, or an exact month to the day after, or when the point of the eclipse degree is activated before or after. Space and time become somewhat relative. This Pisces New Moon Solar Eclipse occurs in the final sign of the zodiac, the sign of dissolution and endings. The Moon will not move on into Aries until 11:40 AM on Wednesday, creating a long Void Moon. The Void Moon in Pisces is one of the good ones due to Pisces’ traditional Ruler, Jupiter. And speaking of Jupiter, it is exactly opposite the Pisces New Moon Solar Eclipse. Jupiter expands whatever it touches, especially in an opposition, Jupiter amplifies and invites projection. The other significant aspect to this Eclipse is an applying conjunction to Chiron. Chiron deals with indelible psychic scars. I see this cosmic configuration as an ideal time to begin healing a spiritual wound. Pisces energy is the ultimate yin. It is receptive, absorptive, tending towards the otherworldly. This wound could be a disconnection with spirit in the sense of a loss of faith. Or it could be your relationship with your imagination or creative faculty. However you conceive of this side of your psyche, now is an opportunity to start anew.
The rest of the Week
The fulfillment of the Sun/Chiron conjunction happens on Thursday at 8:27 PM, followed by a Mercury/Neptune conjunction at 10:01 PM. Pay attention to your dreams Thursday night. Set an intention to receive healing direction from your psyche. The veil thins with all these planets in Pisces, Sun, Mercury, Chiron, Neptune, and early Saturday morning Venus joins the dream team. Look and hope for miracles, but keep your feet on the ground and don’t be fooled by confidence men. Have a wonderful week everyone!
