New SolLunar Cycle in sidereal Pisces
“Water Child” painting by Lucinda Abbe
Our New SolLunar Cycle takes place in sidereal Pisces, linked to Chiron, the Wounded Healer and potent Shaman. In the next four weeks, we will build healing bridges and open new lines of communications. In addition, old wounds still in need of emotional healing might re-emerge. Seek alternative modalities for healing (that are now quite acceptable, even mainstream) for lasting healing effects. Pisces prioritize’s our spiritual nature, that fundamental grounding. Commit to your daily practice. It will keep you sane in chaotic times.
We will also experience a blessed and blessing Neptune/Juno conjunction in Aquarius on March 27 (much easier on partnerships than 2017’s Pluto/Juno conjunction) that may connect you with your ideal partners on all levels. Neptune rules the power of your imagination to see in advance what you want to create and call it forth. Await the miracle with anticipation and appreciation.
Lastly, during these two weeks a tightening, tense conjunction of Mars and Saturn, will become exact on April 2. This aspect, which happens once ever two years, will make the upcoming Full Moon of this SolLunar Cycle particularly passionate, perhaps challenging.
Gratitude to my friend, Lucinda Abbe, for sharing her water paintings with my readers. Check out these links for Lucinda’s meditation teaching and for Lucinda’s art.
MINI-READINGS: Consider a sidereal mini-reading with me for $44 (the number of living your Mastery on Earth). I will discuss where last year’s historic Total Solar Eclipse is taking place in your chart, along with other personal transits for 2018. You will get a whole lot of information! Please send me an email if that is of interest to you. Thank you!
I post twice a month, on the New Moon (which includes the two weeks of New Moon and First Quarter Moon) and on the Full Moon (which includes the two weeks of Full Moon and Last Quarter Moon). As you work with and within the natural flow of time and supportive cosmic energies of each unique SolLunar Cycle, life will flow with more ease and grace. My interpretations and predictions are based on the true sidereal astronomical alignments.

New SolLunar Cycle in sidereal Pisces
“The Beachtowel” painting by Lucinda Abbe
Here is a list of New Moon characteristics compliments of my friend/sidereal colleague Nick Anthony Fiorenza from LunarPlanner:
“Beginning the Sprouting Phase of the Lunar Cycle, a new theme emerges, a new idea or concept sprouts forth. This is an inner message, an impulse expressing from a field of all possibilities deep within the unconscious mind. Often this process is one of discovery, slowly revealing a simple theme over a day or two, or it may be quite clear and specific, even suggesting a major life change. The New Moon is a perfect time for meditation or a quite walk—to go within self and listen.”
Sat March 17
NewSolLunar Cycle in sidereal Pisces: Sun/Moon/Chiron in Pisces square Mars in Sagittarius: The watery, intuitive depths of this New SolLunar Cycle in Pisces (a sign of suffering, compassion, creativity) aligned with Chiron, dubbed the Wounded Healer (implying all of us need each other in our own healing processes, we are not meant to do that alone) will plant seeds of both compassion and healing into our planetary field. Think of New Moons like that; they energetically focus new energies onto our Earth grid, bathing us in the next level of evolutionary healing and planetary awakening. This watery New Moon and the upcoming First Quarter Moon (March 24) are also strongly linked to forceful, driven Mars in fire-sign Sagittarius. This implies we must take action on what we are feeling. No wallowing or wasting time feeling like a victim (the downside of Pisces). Claim your determination and will to power through any perceived blockages.
Sun March 18
Sun/Chiron conjunction in Pisces: This annual conjunction of Shaman Chiron (associated with both our deepest wounds and the ability to forgive and heal from those same wounds) always makes for profound moments of awakening and magic. This pairing can be magical because Chiron rules shamanic time/parallel realities where miraculous leaps and events are possible. As both planets meet up in intuitive Pisces, you can also access a depth of openness and vulnerability not always accessible in daily life.
Moon/Venus/Mercury in Pisces trine North Lunar Node: Take advantage of this utterly relaxing event and don’t force anything. Just be in the flow, enjoy the moment and notice who crosses your path, aware that with the link to the North Lunar Node, an important connection with someone key to your future will appear. Water activities are highlighted along with meditative music, massage, and foot rubs (Pisces governs the feet).
Mon March 19
Moon/Uranus conjunction in Aries: Shocking or impulsive behavior can be part of this monthly meeting of the emotional Moon with spontaneous Uranus. Routines are upset, but trust the momentary guidance guiding you. Be willing to turn on a dime, or make no plans at all. Break free of conformity or a confining schedule. Experiment.
Tue March 20
Spring Equinox ~ 9:15 am MST: It’s spring in our Northern Hemisphere, and that’s always good news in my book of seasons. Find your own joyful way to honor this day of equal day and equal night. It’s a great time to set intentions, give thanks (always, daily) as you embark on your next journey of discovery.
Moon in Aries trine Saturn in Sagittarius: This energizing aspect adds focus, strength and courage to any activity you are engaged in today.
Wed March 21
Moon/Pallas Athene in Taurus: This aspect is excellent for designing your spring garden or feeling inspired to create a solid financial plan going forward. Finish up your taxes. Sometimes this pairing forces you to claim your own way of doing things, versus following someone else’s plan.
Vesta in Sagittarius trine Uranus in Aries: Uranus can bring surprises or a sudden desire to turn in a different direction. Vesta rules security concerns and also offers the ability to be super-focused. This pairing helps you balance the need for both courage and safety in a lovely way.
Thu March 22
Mercury in Pisces turns retrograde: Mercury, our planetary ruler of the mind, communication and transportation systems turns retrograde until April 15. This Mercury retrograde cycle is much softer and kinder than the last brutal and challenging one of December 2017 that took place in Sagittarius. The influence of Pisces on the mind prefers slowing down, values emotional honesty, chooses forgiveness. During this three week period, events of great suffering that awaken our compassionate nature may occur, like the recent traumatic, horrific collapse of a new pedestrian bridge in Florida. Some people might choose to take a break from their technological devices and social media, either because of mechanical break down or due to a feeling of being overwhelmed. This period is highly imaginative and supports writers, poets musicians especially to revise and edit their work.
Moon in Taurus square Neptune/Juno in Aquarius: This square aspect encourages exploring the financial reality of a business or shared project. Aquarius has it’s head in the clouds, dreaming of the future, and Taurus wants to bring that dream into concrete reality. Work and play with the tension.
Fri March 23
Venus in Pisces square Pluto in Sagittarius: There’s more intensity in the love, money, creativity frontiers of your life as Pluto always demands we go deeper, delve further into underlying reasons or causes, not stopping until we have reached the rock bottom truth of what we desire most. Also with challenging aspects to Venus, self-worth issues arise for reflection and healing.
Moon in Taurus sextile Mercury/Venus in Pisces: This aspect is great for valuing all you have accomplished of late. It took effort to plant the garden, now sit back and revel in the beauty and wonder and fragrance.
First Quarter Moon
“A Walk at Eventide” painting by Lucinda Abbe
Here’s a list of the First Quarter Moon characteristics compliments of my friend/sidereal colleague Nick Anthony Fiorenza ~ www.lunarplanner.com
“The First Quarter Moon of each lunar cycle draws an external stimulus to initiate action as we move from the inspirational quarter of the lunar cycle into the action quarter. Now is the time to drop all hesitation and take the steps to move forth on what you were inspired about…it is time to now participate in trust and knowing. Trust in the process. Demonstrate this trust in physical action and you will be supported. This time is stressful or traumatic only if action is ignored. Simply, this phase is a time to work.”
Sat March 24 ~ MARCH FOR OUR LIVES ~ BLESSINGS TO ALL OUR CHILDREN
First Quarter Moon: Sun in Pisces square Moon in Gemini square Mars in Sagittarius: This action-square of forceful Mars to the action-oriented First Quarter Moon pressures you to take your next big step in relationship to where your imagination has been leading you. I keep using the word ‘courage’ as that’s what the Cosmos is giving us to proceed forward in rapid forward movement. It pressures you to release all slothfulness (at times a Piscean quality) and move beyond indecisiveness. Another dimension of this aspect is Pisces’s ability to stay in a haze of denial while Sagittarius demands fierce and direct honesty.
Venus in Pisces quincunx Jupiter in sidereal Libra: Both these astrological signs value harmony, peace, cooperation. Jupiter in Libra is more expressive via language in expressing the need for connection, while Venus in Pisces prefers quiet meditation and silence to create a field of serenity and peace. The quincunx encourages you to know your own path while also honoring the another’s needs.
Sun March 25
Moon in Gemini opposite Pluto in Sagittarius square Mercury retrograde in Pisces: This aspect brings up the need to communicate (Moon in Gemini) obsessively (Pluto) about recent intuitions that have surfaced with the psychic Mercury Retrograde in Pisces. At times, both Gemini and Pisces have a hard time making decisions given the nature of duality present in both signs. Pisces’s glyph is two fish swimming in opposite directions and Gemini’s pictograph is the Twins, seeing in opposite directions. Today it’s wise to go with the energetic flow of conversation, exploring many options, perhaps not yet needing to make a decision.
Mars in Sagittarius quincunx Ceres in Cancer: This reasonably rare alignment calls for upgrading things of the past to their new form, especially on the home front. This might include anything from purchasing a new appliance, finding a new house mate, or making a decision to go forward (or not) on a remodel. It also presents a glaring contrast between those who feel more nostalgic about the past with those who are more excited about future possibilities.
Mon March 26
Moon/Ceres conjunction in Cancer: An unexpected gift of nurturance arrives out of the blue or you provide that blessing to another. (Thank you mysterious person ahead of me who paid for my Starbucks drive-through the other day! I’ll be paying that forward.) This aspect calls up cravings for comfort food. Partake without guilt and with pleasure. Toward midnight, as the Moon makes a monthly conjunction with the North Node, you can feel a sense of certainty about recent decisions in regards to home, security needs, family members, or realize it’s time to let go and trust in an unknown but beneficent future.
Tue March 27
Juno/Neptune conjunction in sidereal Aquarius: If you read my posts, you may recall how last year the asteroid of key partnerships and alliances, Juno, hovered near Pluto for a long time. This challenging alignment brought death, endings, transformation and uncertainty to key relationships. You were ready for a change and life brought that to you. Thankfully, now Juno aligns with spiritual, imaginative, uplifting Neptune and this promises to be more kind and inspirational with regards to our partnerships. Today’s alignment might coincide with an old friend returning to your life, or spark a desire in you to create an altar to call in the relationships you desire, be that a human, animal, or helper. This pairing can bring a new community of support into your life as well.
Moon in Cancer trine Mercury retrograde in Pisces: Easy conversations with family members can ensue, or you may have a flash of insight come to you about someone you care about. Follow through and reach out to them.
Wed March 28
Sun in Pisces square Saturn in Sagittarius: As the imaginative, mystical Sun in Pisces makes a square to vision-driven, focused Saturn in Sagittarius, you can feel pressured to take action and make a commitment to move forward. Saturn functions as the realist, so sometimes that feels like a harsh energy to sensitive Pisces. Notice any building tension or frustration in your body/mind/spirit and take steps to breathe, calm yourself, consciously relax. This will help you avoid injuries that Saturn sometimes brings to get our attention.
Venus/Uranus conjunction in Aries: This annual alignment can spark sudden romantic connections or you may feel an urge to flee a relationship. This aspect loves to take risks, be the first at something, and manifests as brand new trends emerging.
Thu March 29
Mercury retrograde in Pisces trine North Lunar Node in Cancer: Visiting a relative or friend and fondly reflecting on your shared history or dreaming up a new adventure together is a nice option today. Flashes of insight can come in a quiet moment about what your next best step is and what to say yes to.
Moon in Leo opposite Juno/Neptune in Aquarius: This is an aspect full of joy and creative possibilities, especially with the children in your life or a new/old best friend. Excellent for dreaming up new collaborations and projects.
Fri March 30
Venus in Aries trine Vesta in Sagittarius: Venus transits in our lives show up as focus on love interests, financial shifts, creative focuses. This uplifting trine to focused Vesta provides confidence, vision and forward momentum in all those arenas. Fire signs like movement, education, educating, adventure, so explore those possiblities today.
Moon in Virgo opposite Chiron in Pisces: This aspect pits your judgmental, critical, discerning side with your more forgiving nature. Helpful and healing solutions emerge if you align your critical thinking skills with your magical healing powers. Both/And.
Happy Full Moon tomorrow!
