New Moon in Pisces. March 6, 2019
Planet Neptune is featured in the New Moon event. Neptune tends to dissolve what it touches.
Hold on to your Ego! The New Moon in Pisces this week , on March 6, was sitting beautifully with the Sun and Neptune. Neptune tends to dissolve whatever it touches. The ego, the mind, the body, the truth, your energy, and your motivation may get softened, blurred, diminished or weakened by Neptune’s touch. The Sun/Neptune togetherness has continued throughout the week. Big yawn. The Sun and Neptune together is great for a silent retreat, yin yoga, long naps, movies, petting your cat and most anything that doesn’t require super expenditure of energy. Neptune tends to dissolve what it touches. The Sun is our vital energy and also our conscious ego (who we think we are). Neptune and Sun joining together can bring confusion, self-doubt (about that ego), and diminished energy. Take note please that this period is short for most of us. Please don’t blame Neptune for being totally lazy. The people most affected by this New Moon in Pisces with a big hit of Neptune are those affected by Pisces and Neptune. Born under the sign of Pisces or you have Pisces as rising sign or you have the Moon in Pisces? You are seriously affected by this New Moon. Especially people born this first week of March need to see this as a time to slow down and not over commit. These folks need extra rest. People who are under big Neptune transits also need rest.
Is Neptune transiting Pisces testing us, putting us through a collective initiation about truth and reality?
Neptune and Sun together also brings confusion in our society. What is the truth, for crying out loud???? Neptune seems to connect us with mass hysteria and drinking some odd kool-aide. Perhaps we could do our own research on news flashes if they seem outrageous. Neptune rules trends, like fashion and popular TV shows. Unfortunately Neptune is beginning to affect the collective political climate in an extreme manner. We are living in a reality-show world. I’m sure there is something super important to be learned from this. Neptune teaches us compassion. We experience continual updates about the suffering of humanity and all sentient beings and this gives us opportunity to stretch and have compassion for things beyond our domicile and neighborhoods. In addition, Neptune teaches us to discern reality from deception and sabotage. Is this a test? Is Neptune transiting Pisces testing us, putting us through a collective initiation about truth and reality?
Neptune and Pisces are embedded in the 12th house of the zodiac. The 12the house is mysterious. It is full of everything. This earth plane and all its institutional hallways are included in the 12th house of the zodiac. People get lost in hallway corridors and sometimes open the wrong door. Other Neptunian departments of the 12th house are: dreamtime, other dimensions of reality, the cosmos, sound currents from the Universe, sacred geometry, the Divine and LUNACY. It’s no wonder we have a complicated existence. No wonder we want to escape with alcohol, TV and religions that give us a pat answer to everything. The 12th house is a lot of take on. This New Moon in March is full of 12th house, Neptunian, topics.
Higher Truth Requires Humility
Right now with Neptune and Sun (the solar energy that feeds us and keeps us alive) traveling together in the sky, we have an opportunity to explore our own complexity. Think about how you escape to make things simple. Our country wants to escape the complexity of oneness by building a wall. Will that work? How can we embrace the bigger, awesome panorama of existence? Remember: As above, so below (Hermes Trismogistus) and Everything is connected, the web is holy (Marcus Aurelius). Higher truth requires humility and this is something the ego struggles with. Hold on to your ego. Ego is a good thing but it needs to safely expand to understand the self in relationship to everything else. This requires that we be open to the fullness of experiences, rather than closed off by mental beliefs. By Linda Sprague
