Early Monday morning, the Moon has an appointment with Venus at 7:34 AM EDT. Hopefully both have rested well. I’m sure things will seem a bit off kilter with the time change over the weekend. It’s only an hour. But, it does take a bit of time to adjust.
Venus has been swimming away in Pisces picking up treasures and dreams on her journey. She’s socialized with every other planet in the sign and flirted across the way with all that are not. She has conjured fantasies of what it is she wants. She has gathered a bit of idealism and delusion about what it is she values. Now, she is finding that all these things she has picked up are bogging her down. It’s too much. It could possibly cause her to drown.
Emotionally we are still swimming too. But, the Moon has been given the opportunity to catch up on all that has happened with her visits in the days prior. Plus, the Moon hasn’t been subjected to Neptune’s swamp for the entire month like Venus. We have been given glimpses of what we need—which is moon ruled.
Venus, however, is what we want. And what we want has been drowning and overwhelming us. Armed with the knowledge (even if subconscious) of what we need emotionally and having this clarified after meeting with Neptune, Mercury, Saturn, Pluto and Chiron, the Moon approaches Venus gently and asks, “What is it my dear, that you currently have that you are willing to sacrifice for what you want?”
Maybe you want to save money to buy a new house. In order to do this, you will have to sacrifice some of your frivolous spending. Do you want to have children? Then you may have to be willing to sacrifice some of your childless lifestyle in order to do that. Do you want a new job? Then, you will have to sacrifice the time and energy to prepare. And, for awhile you will need to sacrifice some stability.
This is what the Moon and Venus discuss. Venus says, “I want this” and the Moon says, “Well, then you will have to let this go.”
If something or someone tries to exit your life don’t resist. Let it or them go. Process the emotions and grieve. But know the Universe doesn’t allow a space to sit empty for very long. And, you do have a say in how that emptiness is filled.
Remember your intention? Good, because here comes the New Moon.
At 3:52 PM the Moon will meet up with the Sun. That’s when it is exact. But, know that the effects of a New Moon can be felt several days prior to and after the exact aspect. Now you know why I had you preparing over the weekend! If you followed my advice, most of your work is already done!
The New Moon is where Will and Emotion align. Mother Moon and Father Sun come together. And, you know what that means..babies are made. Aka: A new beginning. The circle of life dictates that each new beginning is some beginnings end. That reflects our discussion with Venus this morning.
At their meeting today, Sun and Moon discuss the state of their children (the other planets). And, they align with a plan on how to deal with them. They are both tired and burdened. The weight of the world is literally on their shoulders.
They are about to lay down the law. Quite literally. The Sabian Symbol for the New Moon in Pisces is, “A man bringing down the new law from Mount Sinai” A higher authority (the Sun) is putting his foot down and Mommy Moon is going to be sure he is supported because she agrees with this decision.
What law will you in doctrine? You are the ego (Sun) in this scenario. You are the emotional undercurrent (Moon). Are you tired of carrying everyone’s burdens? Are you willing to put some of them down (sacrifice them) and choose to assist with the ones that are only beneficial to all?
The New Moon chart for my area has Leo Rising, again. It falls only a few degrees after the ascendant of the Full Moon on the 25th. That means that most of this Pisces still falls in the 8th house. Mercury and Neptune are snuggled up tight in the 7th. Does anyone else hear an echo?
The difference is we are assimilating information because Mercury is running backward. We are internalizing all that Jupiter has thrown at us. And now, instead of the Moon being in the sign of Worry (Virgo) she is back over with her family in Pisces. She’s most definitely in their flow. But, she’s done with all this swimming. She’s ready to take Daddy’s plan and run with it. And, that’s exactly what she does.
This is why it is so important to have your course pre-plotted. After the New Moon, things are going to speed up. The Moon will catch up with her prodigal son, Mars, who is about to Jump over into Aries and join up with the God of Revolution. You are going to be jerked forward in a FLASH in whatever direction you are pointed in shortly after the New Moon. So make sure you are paying attention!
You are going to have to delegate tasks or drop some completely to keep up the pace. Have you ever tried to take off running after you’ve been swimming all day? You’ve gotten used to the weightlessness of the water, your muscles are tired and gravity has tripled in force. You aren’t going to have the energy to run and carry extra weight…and we are going…whether we like it or not.
I drew the 10 of Wands in reference to this New Moon. If you want to know what that means, go back and read the last paragraph. Check out the guy in the picture on the card. He looks none too happy to be carrying all that. Do you reckon they all belong to him? How long do you think he’s going to tote them around before he starts trimming his load? How long are you?
