New Moon & A Kiss From Neptune
Today’s new moon in Pisces occurs with alluring, diffuse, dreamy Neptune.
While January gave us the opportunity to explore the changing landscape of the major foundations that make up our lives, February challenged us with delays and obstacles. March is our opportunity to attune to the more pleasant, expansive, and optimistic vibes of 2019.
As the sap ever so slightly begins to soften in the trees, we too can gently rebound after January and February’s struggles. Perhaps this lunation can act as a chance to refresh your outlook on your current situation and future goals. We have the capacity to feel more trusting of life’s wisdom and rhythm this lunation, and we can dream up rather grand plans and possibilities.
The Mercury retrograde is an interesting one, beginning in the very final degree of the zodiac just after Chiron has left that point. Chiron’s myth shares themes of rejection, struggle, mentorship, pain, and healing. So Mercury, as weaver, connector, and traveller, must backstroke through the oceans of Pisces, contacting Chiron’s wake and slipping into Neptune’s whirling pool. Disorienting? Blurry? Inspired? Wistful? Deceptive? Alluring?
I’d feel foolish to try and ‘predict’ or pin down how this 3-week journey might unfold, but I do feel comfortable suggesting that you set aside time and space to creatively reflect and introspect on your life, dreams, and pains. Non-verbal modes of self-exploration (and in context of relationship) might be especially potent.
