Pisces Gets Loaded
New Moon Plus: March 11, 2013
By Timothy Glenn
Venus entered Pisces on February 26, joining the Sun, Mercury, Mars, Chiron and the Piscean ruler Neptune. The stage is now set for a powerful New Moon in the watery Dreamland of Pisces. If we can navigate our way past the illusion, delusion and confusion often associated with this sign, we can set sail on the Cosmic Sea; dreams, mysticism, spirituality, creativity, empathy, and all those other Piscean qualities we long to develop more fully.
The Moon will dive into Pisces on March 9 at 10:18pm Pacific Time. From that moment until the wee hours of the morning on March 12, Pisces will be playing host to the following list of illustrious guests: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Chiron and Neptune. The Moon will cross over each of the other celestial bodies in this order:
1. Neptune. Sure, register your intentions with the sign’s ruler first. Secure assistance and sail forth.
2. Mercury. This guy will still be retrograde until March 17, so don’t bother trying to intellectualize the process.
3. Chiron. Receive some emotional and spiritual healing, and let go of any blockage that wasn’t released at the Full Moon.
4. Venus. Invoke her love and creativity. Dress up the ship, and arrange some flowers around it. Venus excels at interior design, and this gracefully extends into spiritual matters. She can help set the inner environment for setting our intents.
5. Sun. This combination gives us the New Moon, the heart of the transit, so make a wish and throw your heart into it.
6. Mars. Fire up and launch your new dream. With Mars involved, you can do it with gusto.
Lunar Cycle fans love to tap into the energy of a New Moon to reboot their life support systems, start afresh, and set intentions. Sporting a lineup like this, March 11 offers a massive boost to any such effort. With all this power packed into the last of the water signs, the overall potential looms larger than life as we have known it. Wimpy dreams and half-assed intentions feel out of place and utterly inappropriate in this context. Here we have an opportunity to cast a Dreamspell onto the waters of the Universal Ocean of Divine Love, and watch our Dreamspell in turn cast a long shadow: all the way to the Major Grand Trine in the water signs in July of 2013.
Viewing this New Moon as a foreshadowing event for the Grandest of All Trines, we can observe ourselves and our experiences in mid-March, to discern what adjustments we might choose to make as we wend our way toward July. In the interim, we will traverse the stormy fates of late spring, featuring a series of three eclipses along with Uranus exactly squaring Pluto. Whew! That merits a separate article, because it heralds a momentous shift and carries the potential for upheaval. The voltage of our emotions in setting our intents at this New Moon would do well to propel us beyond the New Age Fluff Bunny level. Dream it, think it, feel it, say it, and profoundly mean it.
In the wonderful world of Astrology, we use a few systems of what we call weighted scores; numerical quantifiers for the amount of influence exerted by the various celestial bodies. Here is a basic example:
1. Sun and Moon, 3 points each.
2. The inner planets (Mercury, Venus and Mars) 2 points each.
3. Everybody else (Jupiter, Chiron, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto) 1 point each.
For the more observant among you, yes, those three sets comprise six points each; 666, but don’t let that throw you off. Keeping it simple, we have a total of 18 points. (And may the Vedic Astrologers forgive the omission of the Lunar Nodes, known as Rahu and Ketu, or also known collectively as R2D2.) To illustrate the potency of the Piscean Overload in mid March, here’s the math:
1. Sun and Moon = 3 points each = 6 points.
2. All three inner planets = 2 points each = 6 points.
3. Chiron and Neptune = 1 point each = 2 points.
Using this system for these few magical days in March, Pisces will score a whopping 14 of a possible 18 points. The remaining 4 points will be scattered across the rest of the Zodiac. The Grand Trine in July will score 14 points for the three water signs combined. Forgive this if it seems like superfluous Astrobabble, but it was presented to emphasize the potency of this New Moon. Our emotive abilities will be enhanced, not merely foreshadowing the Grand Trine, but helping create what will be manifested. Our thinking shapes the template of our lives, but our feelings form the engine that drives us forward.
The current Pisces adventure offers a bounty of opportunities for everyone to access and utilize its universal energy. But where this occurs in your personal chart creates another adventure altogether. The same will apply with the foreshadowed event. Some our natal charts are impacted by these influences to the point of going “off the chart”. When discussing the Major Grand Trine of July 2013 with various clients, I have asked: “Just how big a blessing are you willing to receive from the universe?” A pertinent question indeed, and we can all ask ourselves: how massive a gift are we capable of assimilating into our lives?
We can start answering these questions right now. At the Pisces New Moon, a related question arises: “How big do you dare to dream?” Especially if we invoke our Soul’s Dream as we set our intentions for this transmutative year, are we finished playing small? Are we ready to stand tall as the Divine Beings we really are? We can dream, but can we dream with genuine Faith?
Inside your Heart of Hearts lies an Inner Sanctum, from which you can help co-create a world of sanctuary. Infinite Love is the only Reality, and 2013 gives us a golden opportunity to Get Real.
