New SolLunar Eclipse in Aquarius
“Flowering” painting by Victoria Blumberg
Welcome to the next round of transformational eclipses sure to assist you in making bold new choices. Both the Sun and Moon are aligning with the Lunar South Node (which is why this is an eclipse) in sidereal Aquarius. This creates a severing of ties with your old choices and past patterning. At the same time, enthusiastic Jupiter is aligned with the North Lunar Node, pressuring you to get on with it, whatever the ‘it’ is for you.
I had a transformational dream this morning, a perfect metaphor for this eclipse, which also aligns with Chiron. Astrologically, Chiron is a centaur/asteroid who calls forth purging and cleansing buried wounds, helping us forgive and release the past. Chiron is also referred to as the rainbow bridge, helping us free ourselves from the confinement of linear clock time, or 3D living, into shamanic or quantum time, 5D reality, and beyond. In the dream, I am watching a mile-wide river in 1000-year flood stage. It is brown and cloudy, in spring runoff stage, full of debris and sludge, but quickly flowing. In a very short time, the flood is over and valley beneath the river appears like a Garden of Eden, exposing fresh, healthy, vibrant green Earth. This dream is hopeful and telling. As we all do the work and engage in our own rapid releases, flowing into our new lives, health and clarity won’t be far behind. Expect even more accelerated cleansing, releasing, detoxifying, healing, awakening as this dynamic, catalytic New Moon launches the spring cycle of 2016.
Thank you for your letting me post one of your joyful paintings, Victoria Blumberg.
Here is a list of New Moon characteristics compliments of my friend/sidereal colleague Nick Anthony Fiorenza at 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.”
Note: I write my posts according to the Lunar cycles, posting on the New, First Quarter, Full and Third Quarter Moons. I encourage you to work with and within these natural flow of time and supportive cosmic energy, which ensures your life will flow with more ease and grace. I base my interpretations and predictions on the true sidereal astronomical alignments.

Here’s a visual depiction of this dynamic New SolLunar Cycle taking place in sidereal Aquarius, compliments of StarWalk:
Tue March 8
New SolLunar Eclipse in Aquarius: This stunning new beginning for planet Earth will take place later this evening. Both Sun (conscious motivations) and Moon (subconscious drives) are in conjunction with the South Lunar Node, which is why this is an astronomical Solar Eclipse. The South Lunar Node symbolizes the past, like libraries of history, what some call the Akashic records, and also oversees your internal library of journals, locked in the coding of your DNA. During an eclipse, you are given the opportunity to open those books, decide what stories to keep, and discard the rest. Yes, you do have that power and prerogative.
The dream I wrote about in the introduction speaks to the influence of Aquarius, the Waterman, symbolic of the waters of life pouring through us and all of creation to nurture everyone and everything with abundance and loving-kindness. When the Moon makes a late night conjunction with Chiron, you might feel extremely emotional or be driven to clear up some misunderstanding from the past.
Wed March 9
Moon in Pisces: Everything I wrote about yesterday is still very much working on and within you today. As the emotional Moon shifts into Pisces, you might experience an upwelling of compassion or grief, and the helpful trine to Mars encourages you to take some form of action based upon a undeniable feeling or intuition. Hug the world, find the commonalities of our shared communities.
Ceres in Aquarius square Saturn in Scorpio: This aspect encourages taking committed actions toward nurturing your relations or getting serious about aligning your finances with your values. It’s like setting in motion a whole new life strategy.
Thu March 10
Sun/Chiron conjunction in Aquarius: This annual alignment is the magic portal of shift I wrote about in the introduction. This aspect can create a sense of being ‘out of time’, thus leading to spaciness, forgetfulness, sudden new doors and dimensions opening. Don’t freak out. Explore the gift of living as a multi-dimensional Being, making friends with your 5D, more awakened Self today. Discover and trust that part of you that is a magical manifestor.
Mercury/Neptune conjunction in Aquarius: With this aspect, our mental field and focus aligns with imaginative, right-brain Neptune. This is a day to literally imagine a whole new life for yourself, if you need to, or pull out the books/cd’s on intentional thinking. You are creating your reality, so seize that power more fully today.
Moon in Pisces trine Saturn/square Pluto/conjunction Uranus: Further deep-seated emotional releases are part of this configuration that cascades throughout all of today.
Fri March 11
Moon/Vesta conjunction in Aries: This motivated and fiery aspect aligns your emotions with the asteroid of focus, Vesta. This is a perfect day to initiate bold new initiatives or just get your physical body moving again. You might feel more combative as well, or be able to be more direct in your communications with others.
Sun/South Lunar Node conjunction: This annual alignment is like a crossing over, and so carries both a death and a birth aspect. Note how this transitional moment is playing out in your life. If you bring conscious awareness to the shift happening, it may flow with more grace.
Sat March 12
Grand Trine in Fire: Moon in Aries/Jupiter in Leo/Pluto in Sagittarius: It’s a day of collective enthusiasm with this supportive, energetic sky geometry that brings good things flowing naturally toward you. Endless energy, positive news, a feeling of self confidence are all part of this gift.
Sun March 13
Jupiter in Leo opposite Ceres in Aquarius: Community alliances and shared group initiatives take off today with increased speed and direction. Leo’s influence is heart-based, playful, full of joy. Aquarius’s influence assures us that working together, toward common goals, we are unstoppable.
Moon in Taurus square Venus in Aquarius opposite Mars in Scorpio: It’s a day to pay attention to your financial affairs, if need be. The tension of this square might manifest as personal or professional partners disagreeing on how to spend shared resources.
Mon March 14
Moon in Taurus activates Saturn/Neptune square: Questions can arise today about the practicality of pulling off a dream or scheme that’s grabbed your attention. It’s time to get down to work to make it happen, or realize that forcing an issue might not work, and you need to let go.
Sun enters sidereal Pisces: Dive into your creative side during the coming month-long transit of Sun in Pisces. Music, poetry, water sports, lymphatic massage and cleansing are especially good choices.
