New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Pisces Forecast (March 20, 2015)

There are four things you must know about the New Moon at Pisces 29 degrees on March 20.  First, the Moon ends a cycle at 29 degrees.  Second, the Moon quickly transits into Aries along with the Sun ushering in the Vernal Equinox.  Third this marks the third Super Moon of 2015 and finally, this Moon ushers in the first Solar Eclipse of the year.  And all this plays over a backdrop of the final exact square between Uranus and Pluto which ends on March 28.

To understand this New Moon, let’s explore the Sign Pisces, known as the fish swimming in two directions.  Pisces is a Mutable Water Sign with the planetary ruler Neptune.  Though in traditional astrology, Jupiter ruled the Sign of the Fish.  Pisces are psychic, usually spiritual, creative, shy, whimsical and enchanting.  They often have large watery eyes, especially the Pisces Ascendant and Moon.  You can find many Pisceans in the world of dance, music, movie making and photography, but also in science, and alternative healing practices, life coaching or teaching a yoga class (not mentioned in the video).

This New Moon also marks the first Mutable Sign New Moon of 2015, a year in which we experience powerful Mutable transits with Neptune and Chiron in Pisces, Saturn in Sagittarius and in August, Jupiter rolls into Virgo.  Mutable energy brings restlessness and change, usually on the verbal level first.  In April we experience a Mutable T-Cross with Venus in Gemini opposing Saturn and squaring Neptune so we have that too look forward to along with the Saturn-Neptune square that takes place most of 2015, exact in November.

As I mentioned in the Full Moon in Virgo video earlier, now is a time to take good care of your feet.  Blisters, sprained and strained feet can occur now.  Choose footwear based on comfort and not as a fashion statement now, get foot massages and soak your feet in Epsom salt and warm water.

Stay grounded during this time by engaging the hips and feet in dance.  Be it trance dance or free dancing to West African drums.  We could also use this time to escape stressful situations by watching movies, making movies (anyone can make short movies and post them on YouTube), photography and making music. Sing, dance but stay away from intoxicants since it’s too easy to feed addictions or become addicted now.

Most important we are ending one cycle and beginning a new cycle now just as we say good bye to winter and hello to spring.  Between the Full Moon on March 5 and the New Moon on March 20 is a good time to clean out closets and storage units, give away what no longer serves you.  Make room for the new by getting rid of the old.  Recycle, re-use and re-purpose.  I’m fortunate to live in a community with recycling programs for just about everything.

Whatever you do around the New Moon, I wish you a happy March 2015.

  1. Impact of Solar Eclipse means a kind of suspension of or obstruction to natural energy to the Earth for a period the eclipse begins to the end, which process does not usually last more than couple of hours at the most. But it can be imagined that the couple of hours phenomenon takes lot of time to come to the effective stage astronomers identify as solar eclipse or lunar eclipse. It is believed that the natural energy flowing from the Sun keeps things alive on Earth. So the impact of solar eclipse on 20 March 2015 would obviously plunge countries or regions into darkness wherever it is visible. This time it is Europe and some other regions where the eclipse would be visible. So whatever is dependent upon solar energy directly could be affected. Man made energy seems to be a different thing and perhaps may not be affected.
    But there are messages from unseen powers people call spiritual. The total solar eclipse happens to be in the last sign sign of the zodiac.Planetary influences flowing to the Earth , as per astrology, seem to be to weaken the strong. These in combination with solar eclipse could be construed to mean a difficult time ahead.

  2. That's an interesting observation because I have had eclipses impact me for several months after the event. I have also seen eclipse impact other people's lives. True the eclipse triggers an immediate situation or event that requires our attention, but then that event sets in motion other related events. It's like a row of dominoes knocking each other down.

    I don't believe that eclipses plunge the world into darkness at least not on a mental, spiritual or emotional level, but takes us deep into our subconscious allowing us to stop repressing those things we don't wish to face.

  3. I'm particularly intent on this incredible confluence of energies because my son, turning 35, has a 29 degree 58 minute Pisces Sun. He's an emotionally fragile individual.

  4. Hello Elizabeth, I could have sworn I responded to your e-mail, but the message isn't here.

    How did the eclipse go for your son? My impression is that he's stronger than he or you think. Pisces Sun comes across as being too vulnerable and fragile at times, especially if other planets are also in Pisces. The strength is in developing intuition and healing abilities or expressing creativity. Also developing a spiritual foundation builds strength through Pisces greatest asset, faith.
