New Moons and Old Moons are crescents, and here on a cold day is a crescent of ice  held over what looks like Arabic writing.  The beauty of the Earth repeats patterns in many ways.  The Astrological chart for the moment of the birth of the new Moon on Sunday contains a crescent in the pattern of the placement of the planets.   And here is the most amazing part of all: the exact center point of the arc is the degree of the new Moon, the place where Sun and Moon are located…4 degrees of Pisces!!

The Sabian Symbol for the degree of the new Moon in Pisces is A Church Bazaar.   This  symbolizes the intertwine between what is considered ‘spiritual,’ and what is ‘material’ or even ‘commercial’!   Pisces has a strong connection with attempts to separate the spiritual from the material.  During the last two thousand years, the Age of Pisces, monasteries, hermitages, convents were a worldwide human concern.  People entered these institutions to separate themselves from the material world.   They are now largely disappearing as we move into a new Aquarian phase, where community is seen in an entirely different light.

Mars and Uranus are the two ends of this crescent.  They are both in astrological signs which  belong to the Earth element.  So in astrological language they are ‘trine,’ which means they understand one another.   This gives us all a very good opportunity to direct energy towards recognizing our kinship to the Earth, and to direct energy towards some practical gift or effort we might make to our home.   This means that Uranus and Mars are in sync with the new Moon.   Take a moment to ask what beautiful and daring effort in your life might begin with this new lunar cycle.

A beautiful photo from a newly returned traveler to Paris.  This image expresses some eternal yearning we have for perfection and beauty, the deep sigh of Pisces.

Pisces

The finish, the end, the finale is found in Pisces.  This is the eternal, wet, foggy place of the zodiac.  It is here where Venus finds her exaltation, where Jupiter Lord of the high mountain, Olympus rules with Neptune of the deep sea. Nothing keeps form here, and all is expressed in contradiction, divinity and addlement.  For the two fish who symbolize Pisces demand choice: will you go this way or that way, are you male or female, are you feathered or finned?  This is the sign of the monastery and convent, of the ocean, of the dream.   Nothing will remain when you awaken from this dream.  And so you drink more, or search for a powder of power or a god or the source of a great river.  Pisces rules the feet, and we all know, ‘Wisdom comes through the feet.’  Pisces is also great compassion and sweetness, the tender release of all material forms, the end of battles for right and clarity.  And the soul is now in charge; plans and ambitions are forgotten, lost in the eternal swamp, where new life begins.

Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed;
And on the pedestal, these words appear:
My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings;
Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!
from Ozymandias  Percy Byssche Shelley

This new Moon has a strong Dream quality to it. Watch your dreams over the next few days, for Sun and Moon are nestled in the arms of Neptune, the planet who takes us into realms of vision, which we cannot enter with words alone. For this reason Neptune is associated with addiction to narcotics or alcohol, or psychedelics and, yet, this chimeric world is available with a simple turn of the head. Who will go there?   I  have Sun and Neptune permanently enmeshed in my chart, and delight in the journeys of dreams and visions, but I have learned to travel with care, Saturn and Jupiter at my side.  And this chart also demands structure and action not dreams alone.

When Neptune appeared on the horizon for astronomers and astrologers, (1846),  the ‘Age of Reason’ melted, and religious revivals and romantic poetry flourished. I love this painting by Fournier as the ultimate romantic image!  It is the funeral pyre of Shelley, the poet, who drowned in Neptune’s embrace.   His friends burned him on the beach where he died, his blackened heart (or maybe his liver)  cut  from his body and later given to his wife, Mary Shelley, the author of Frankenstein.  Percy Shelley drowned at 29, the age when Saturn returns to our natal  sign and degree, and gives most people a sense of structure and maturity.  But Shelley’s poetry was not meant for Saturn’s ‘maturity,’  It is about a part of us that is ‘timeless’ and immortal.

So many planets are plugged into this new Moon, it is hard to know how to balance all their demands and contributions. It’s a complicated formula:  the desire to fall into vision or trance (Neptune, Sun and Moon in Pisces) with the demand that the message from another world be shared, and acted upon.  In the painting above, the Druid has become the Owl messenger of the Crystal Circle.  Mercury, the messenger is now in his last degree of the the Zodiac.  Like the Druid-Owl he is  ready  to speak of the experience he gained from his journey through all the degrees of all the signs, a journey he began on March 6, 2018, exactly a year ago today.    Saturn and Mars are in a trine of Earth signs. They bracket the Sun/Moon/Neptune dreams with patience (Saturn) , but a demand for action (Mars). This is a beautiful combination for an artist or a shamanic healer.

This might be a formula to awaken our world to the deep wounds we have inflicted upon the earth.  Chiron in his new sign of Aries, waits next to the messenger, Mercury.  Chiron in Aries has returned to the sign where he was at discovery in 1977.  This was a period of unashamed concern for the earth. Mercury is another planet involved in healing.  They are cheek and jowl in this chart.   Mercury in the last degree of Pisces and Chiron in the first degree of Aries,  bring an urgency to our consciousness.  Vesta, the planet of hearth and home is also with the Neptune/Sun/Moon.  She is there to remind us we are as much a part of this planet as the mountains and the trees.
