Forecast 3/11 If you swam with yesterday’s flow, there’s more of it today. If it was more of a challenge for you, look for some bend in your schedule.
In its purity, a Pisces New Moon is the time to launch a fresh creative or spiritual venture, especially if it has been suspended due to physical odds or other responsibilities. Even if you still feel bogged down by other obligations, this is a great time to give attention to your desired intentions.
When flow is hard, confusion may reign. Feel and give the Love. The Pisces New Moon occurs at 3:51 p.m. ET at 21°24”. The Sabian Symbol** for this degree is: “A prophet carrying tablets of the New Law is walking down the slopes of Mount Sinai”.
What arrests me about this image is the freshness of an old icon. It is in the present tense, reminding us that spiritual interpretation is ongoing. Hence this found image created by a couple of enterprising kids of a more relevant Moses.
When we learn a “truth” it has a resonance that echoes the point in time when we receive it. For instance, a child recites the Ten Commandments dutifully in religious education, but that individual may not really digest the meaning until much later in life.
Each time s/he revisits the “new law” it is new and open to thought and consideration.
For one living in our present world, it is almost impossible to take things on face value; hard and fast rules do not hold. Good people lose jobs they’re good at. Rewards do not necessarily shower on someone who follows a path. The times we live in have increased the need for reflection and self-understanding. Only through the inner work do we arrive at peaceful moments in spite of challenging times.
One could say this is a good thing. Would we have so many seekers, if the path was laid out for us?
Consider yourself the prophet who is carrying the Truth into the deeper part of yourself. This is what happens when you live a spiritual life.
We are not perfect all the time- choices and “life” upsets and demands our attention. The important piece is to keep the image alive; that you are walking your path and carrying your Truth. Using this as a meditation image can be grounding and empowering.
The Pisces New Moon horoscope indicates a challenging picture for verbal communications and the written word.
This can jumpstart a writer’s block (because only by showing up at the page do you coax it out) or begin to break up an impasse in negotiations. Unless you understand the blockage, you don’t know how to dismantle it. This is beyond intellectual comprehension, use intuition and compassion.
Make your to-do list of 3 achievable goals for the lunar month- 1 that you can easily knock off, another you need to do and a third that you want to at least put in motion or give some ongoing attention to (because it’s a longer endeavor).
Make your list before the Moon is void-of-course (VOC)* from 3:51 p.m. ET where it drifts through the next morning.
Enjoy a Creative Time-Out.

** We are still in the process of understanding the Sabian symbols, which were channeled in 1925. The spiritualist astrologer Marc Edmund Jones, took Elsie Wheeler, a clairvoyant confined to a wheelchair to a San Diego park with a project. He put a symbol for each of the 360∞ of the zodiacal wheel on 360 cards. She proceeded to come up with visual phrases for each one of them. They were done in random order and they have a magic that is hard to decipher, yet feels totally right.
*Moon VOC/Void-of-Course… in Pisces, creativity may be high, if one is already in the midst of a project. Inspiration is more fluid than electric. This is also an excellent time to meditate and do conscious prayer-work or volunteer activities.
