Pisces New Moon 2016: Solar Eclipse Supermoon
Many people feel this eclipse before it occurs— a sense of foreboding, expectation, anxiety or restlessness are not uncommon. Because its orbit brings it so close to Earth, the 3/8/16 Pisces New Moon is a Supermoon— You can expect to see some pictures of a full moon on the net, because that’s what bloggers post when they hear “supermoon”, even when it’s a New Moon. The mouthful is that the Pisces New Moon 2016 is a Solar Eclipse Supermoon.
Yet in some places on the planet, one may actually witness the ordinarily invisible New Moon as it passes the Sun, because it is also a total eclipse. The total eclipse is visible in Indonesia and from locations in the Pacific Ocean. A partial eclipse may be seen by observers in parts of Australia and Asia. In other locations, its simply likely to be overcast.
A Sun/Jupiter picture in the dawn sky indicates that a lot goes on— even those who do not rise early may feel a pull today.
Feelings can overwhelm, whether you have a personal struggle or are swept into the tsunami of world events. Meditation, reflection and/or prayer are highly encouraged as methods to center your thoughts and provide a solid platform on which to build your day. The ideal is to have a clear picture of what you plan to accomplish.
If your day is not pre-planned, activities may scatter in many directions and lead to a sense of burnout by evening. Efforts may be thwarted, seem too hard or not have the support required to pull off. Please keep in mind that any seeming block may be temporary, even if a solution appears impossible. When you allow the possibility of Divine answers, they come.
Even if you are tempted to spread yourself all over the map, choose one activity and put your efforts in that. Considering that 3/8/16 is International Women’s Day, you might be involved in an event that presents lots of options in one place.
It is best NOT to start anything new on this New Moon, but to let the ideas steep over the next couple of days. For more about how to make the most of a New Moon
The Moon is in opposition to Jupiter (wisdom) in Virgo (the sign of the craftsman/healer). Be wary of anyone whose message is too strident or overbearing in their delivery. Eclipses can bring your attention to something; if nothing overt occurs, pay attention to any messages, gossip, symbols that catch your eye. If the eclipse is personal for you (touches a planet or point in your horoscope) then you will experience something of note.
Cancers, Leos and people born on an eclipse are often sensitive to eclipses, regardless of the sign. Traditional wisdom cautions against ever beginning a project exactly on the eclipse because the energy is so unpredictable.
It’s also worth noting, that Donald Trump was born under a Lunar Eclipse, so we can expect a lot more of him in the news as we move through the March eclipses. If you missed it, here’s my recent Trump blog. Since this eclipse lights his 7th house of relationships, I wonder if something will be revealed about one of his wives or business partners?
Unlike Trump, we don’t know the birth time of Hillary Clinton, so it’s not clear if this eclipse strikes her Pisces Moon directly— but it certainly is a strong possibility. Here’s a blog I wrote about her in 2008, which I am updating for her second bid to the White House.
The Pisces New Moon / Solar Eclipse at 18° Pisces 56” occurs at 8:54 PM ET. The Sabian Symbol for the New Moon is “A master instructing his disciple”. This Moon also carries the messages of past lives and spiritual directives: why am I here? Is this lifetime a passing experience, one that leads to nothing by dust?
Or does the “master”, the Soul within you, inform the “disciple” as to what has meaning? The Pisces energy can imbue you with a trust and purpose, a light of faith— especially when you are open to ways to put this into actual form.
Consider an opportunity to provide service if it presents itself. The important question is do you have space to allow your Soul’s purpose? If it’s been neglected, this is a perfect time to plan how that might unfold.
The Moon is void-of-course/voc* after 8:54 PM into the next day.
The ritual of an abundance check can help to channel that desire to “do something” at the New Moon- For abundance check information
*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. Any business meeting is a true waste of time, unless it is solely for creative play. Focus is nonexistent, so people feel unwell when asked to do pay attention. Instead, meditate, reflect and do conscious prayer-work or volunteer activities. More about the Moon VOC
