We are having a New Moon in Pisces on March 6th in most of the world, and in the early hours of March 7th in the far East. This is initiating a 29.5 day lunar cycle which peaks on the Equinox on March 20th/21st with a Full Moon in Libra.
This lunar cycle begins just a day after Mercury begins its retrograde in the same sign, which will last throughout the majority of the month. Therefore, it will play a major role in how these coming weeks play out. I recommend reading my retrograde article here if you haven’t already.
We have been experiencing Piscean energies for a while now, as Pisces season began on February 18th/19th and Mercury has also been there since February 10th. However, this New Moon and Mercury Retrograde emphasizes it even more so.
Pisces is the last of 12 signs and is associated with spirit and oneness as a reflection of the zodiacal evolution. It is the least invested in physical-material word and is more oriented around emotion, compassion, energy, spirituality, imagination, and dreams. It is highly intuitive and even psychic, sometimes unknowingly. It can be divinely inspired, idealistic, healing, mystical, and highly creative. It is forgiving, self-sacrificing, and unconditionally loving.
Pisces is visual based and non-linear, therefore it can lack rationality and mental acuity. It struggles when it comes to details and the left brained orientation of the mundane world. Reality can be overwhelming which is one of the reasons why escapism is a trait of this sign.
Negative qualities of Pisces can be delusion, deception, addiction, intoxication, flakiness, evasiveness, self-undoing, and having issues with boundaries. The line between reality and fantasy can be blurred. Pisces can also be both in the light and dark at the same time. This quality is a reflection of the oneness orientation it possesses; however, it can also be a factor towards deceptive behavior.
New Moon Conjunct Neptune, Sextile Saturn, Pluto, Mars, and Square Jupiter
This New Moon is in a tight alignment with Neptune, which accentuates the already strong Piscean energy mentioned above. Neptune is also the higher octave of Venus and is associated with glamour, romance, and spiritual values. As Pisces is associated with escapism, Neptune rules drugs, alcohol, and psychedelic experiences.
The Sun and Moon are moving towards a harmonious sextile with Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn, while separating from another sextile with Mars in Taurus which was strong in the last 10 days. This energy helps us to be productive and grounded amidst all of this Pisces energy mentioned above.
This combined with Mars moving towards a sextile with Neptune can help us in taking action towards anything creative, imaginative, idealistic, or spiritual. We may feel like acting on our dreams and fantasies. Mars will be in a trine with Saturn as well, which can help us direct our energy in a focused, solid, stable, and practical way. It can also be good for building something.
Mercury will be connecting to the same planets in backwards motion and, considering the nature of the retrograde energy, this can be good for revisiting something already initiated in the past. Along with the Sun and Moon, Mercury will also be in a square with Jupiter. We can get scattered mentally and overextend ourselves, however, it can also be good for learning or any type of expansive or explorative efforts. Conflicts around opinions and judgements could also arise in some cases.
Uranus Transitioning From Aries To Taurus For Final Time
The planet Uranus initially entered Taurus on a New Moon last May before it went retrograde back into Aries in early November. It is now re-entering Taurus again, hours before this New Moon, where it will stay until 2026.
Whenever Uranus changes signs, its energies tend to become highly obvious in the news, even if we don’t notice it in our personal lives. Uranus rules surprises, sudden disruptive events, accidents, and natural disasters. It’s energy can be explosive, revolutionary, and radical.
When Uranus was transitioning from Aries to Taurus last May, the Hawaiian volcano erupted along with others. There was also earthquakes at that time. When it retrograded from Taurus to Aries in November, the California wildfires occurred.
If you were born with planets in the early parts of any signs you will likely notice its energies either really soon or sometime over the next year. The experience of it can be liberating, awakening, exciting, revolutionary, unconventional, innovative, rebellious, separative, or even unstable and loss oriented. Those who will notice it the most will be people who have their Sun, Moon, Ascendant or other key planets in early Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, or Aquarius.
Below is a video I did last year talking about other general potential effects of Uranus in Taurus.
Making Intentions And Things To Consider
What can you be doing to help you become more spiritually activated? What should you be doing to bring more magic or serenity into your life? Do you have any self-sabotaging or escapist tendencies that could be traded in for creative, spiritual, or inspiring practices, efforts, or projects?
What can you be doing to stimulate a stronger intuition? Should you be meditating more often? Do you feel like you need to liberate yourself from a situation that is holding you back? How can you be integrating your visions, imagination, inspiration, creativity, or even visual media into your career or any projects that you are doing? Do you need to be more compassionate?
What recurring themes have come up for you in the last two weeks? Whatever it may be, it is likely an indication of the areas of your life where you will experience an important shift or adjustment later in this Moon cycle or potentially into the next one as well.
These are just some examples of what to consider or focus your intentions on at this time; however, it is good to reflect on anything else that is coming up for you. It is generally best to make any intentions within the first 24 hours following a New Moon. It will be occurring at 4:04pm Universal Time, you can click here to see what that is in your time zone.
