New Moon in Pisces, 9 deg. Solar Eclipse
February 26, 2017, 6:58 am PST
Happy New Moon Everyone!
This Solar Eclipse occurs in the last sign of the zodiac, an auspicious time for reflection, to look deeply into the importance of our spiritual beliefs. We are being guided to go beyond the fantasy of our illusions. It is no longer needed for us to be dependent upon a “go-between man” to represent our connection with our god or creator, but rather to face it alone, unclothed with the encumbrances of the past. Pisces, the last sign of the zodiac, signifies the last stage of the journey to return to the “I AM”, the divine within us.
Days prior to this New Moon Eclipse, many events of concern will be witnessed. The ancients believed that eclipses trigger natural disasters; earthquakes, tsunami, volcanic eruptions, hurricanes and floods were among the said events. Pisces is a water sign hence incidents can impact the water flow or water system (as we are seeing now in Northern California).
On this Lunar Event, we have a cluster of planets that are all in Pisces. Besides the Sun and the Moon, Neptune (Pisces ruler) and Mercury, the South Node also join in, making a huge impact on our everyday life. On the personal level the message is about old habitual patterns relating to escapism, victimhood, and idealism. When a Solar Eclipse occurs in Pisces, what we imagine to be earthly matters dissolve. Thus this event teaches us to access dimensions beyond the physical plane, as well as the importance of our spiritual practices – not to escape from our earthly responsibilities, but rather to find ways to make them both work, the spiritual and material.
We will be approaching Spring Equinox in the next few weeks. Now is the time to plan ahead, put feelers out, and with optimism, grab opportunities that are presented.

9 deg. Pisces: A jockey spurs his horse, intent on outdistancing his rivals; intense mobilization of energy and skill in the drive for success in any social performance affected by the competitive spirit.
When faced with a sad situation, it is best not to languish in it. We can change things by being with different people, moving to other places, or, if all else fails, adjusting our own attitudes to take the initiative.
Have a Blessed New Moon!
