New Moon in Pisces (4 March 2011)

Cluny Hill College, Fish Stone
The New Moon in Pisces is the last new moon of this year cycle, with the potential to integrate all the resources of the previous seasons into one harmonious whole. 

The New Moon period begins two days before and after exact New Moon, expressing its major effect one day before and after. 

With every New Moon, or Lunation, an old cycle ends and a new one starts. This lunar cycle starts with the New Moon (at 20:45 GMT, on 4 March 2011, in 13° Pisces 56’), reaches its climax with the Full Moon (at 18:10 GMT on 19 March 2011, in 28° Virgo 48') and ends with the next New Moon (at 15:32 GMT on 3 April 2011, in 13° Aries 30'). 



The sign where the Moon is positioned at the initial New Moon, together with the astrological and energy features of that time, determines the energy and Intent of the entire cycle. 

With the New Moon in Pisces, the whole lunar cycle will be characterised by Pisces topics, also when the Sun moves in the adjacent sign Aries on 20 March 2011

Pisces is the ultimate zone of human perception, encompassing the power to dissolve boundaries and expand into non-ordinary territories. In this area of experience it is inevitable to come to terms with multi-dimensional contents, which may provide fundamental inspiration for manifesting most significant Intents. 

A Pisces New Moon is ideal for giving birth to creative and artistic ideas, employing the power of imagination to scan the veracity of our intentions, exploring non-ordinary realities, connecting with the dream world, retrieving soul parts and acquire new spirit allies. 

This New Moon takes place in  the midst of Carnival which strongly encourages the potential to break through consensus reality, challenging the limits to the free expression of our potentials and shape-shifting into what truly serves our best intentions. For this purpose, it would be ideal to perform a ritual involving the use of costumes or masks representing our intentions.

Chant d'Amour, by Rene Magritte, 1898-1967

The New Moon is an active and male phase, a period of transition when the seed is present, yet it has not taken a definite form. This is an excellent time to develop new ideas, plan and contemplate any Intent you might wish to consider or implement. This allows to set the Intent and foundations for new projects or to release old cycles and grievances. Yet, since the whole scenario is obscure, it may be a time of vulnerability and uncertainty, encouraging abstention from daring initiatives in the outer world. 

It is an ideal moment to relate with one’s multidimensional self, to take some rest and reflect upon the lessons of life, to release what is no longer needed. The purpose of this phase is becoming aware of your multidimensional Intent, letting go of conditionings. 

The question here is: “What do I truly want?” This requires an honest answer, which is not affected by what I am supposed to want according to my social conditioning. 

Be aware of your Intent, no matter whether it appears as a sheer illusion or fantasy to your ordinary mind. This is not the time to be pragmatic or to concern about how to accomplish things. It is the moment to open up to visions. 

Later, as the cycle progresses, there will be chances to refine and orient them towards manifestation and understanding. 

This phase is related to the androgynous state, mysterium coniunctionis, the mystical union of Sun and Moon, the sacred marriage which allows the emergence of the true Self, the gateway between dimensions, the Winter Solstice. 

The exact degree of the New Moon (13° Pisces 56’), as it is reflected in your natal chart, provides clues regarding your Intent and the energies that may emerge during the new cycle. 

On the eve of the New Moon in Pisces, on 3 March 2011, at Cluny Hill College, the campus of the Findhorn Foundation in Northern Scotland I will hold a short workshop entitled: Spring-cleaning SeX Files (see: http://www.facebook.com/Astroshamanism#!/event.php?eid=132672470136854)
