2 Pisces 42
“When you wish upon a star, makes no difference who you are…when you wish upon a star, your dreams come true.” –Jiminy Cricket, Pinocchio
Whether you normally honor (or even notice) a New Moon not or, pay attention this month. It hold the potential for outright magic. Tuesday’s Pisces New Moon doesn’t give just a star to wish upon; it gives us the Sun, the Moon, two planets and two asteroids. What’s more, its timetable for wishes coming down to earth isn’t just a moon cycle; it’s lots, lots longer.
This New Moon is a launch party for Neptune’s voyage through Pisces over the next 14 years. Not only is the guest of honor in attendance; he’s got an honor guard, too. This puts the power of the ocean behind the wishes we make now, the artistic and spiritual inspirations we receive now, the healing of divisions we experience now, the guidance and compassion and, yes, outright magic we allow to come into our lives now.
Here’s the line-up, and then here’s how to work with it: Neptune, the ruler of Pisces, is at the doorway to his sign, where he’ll basically hover for the rest of the year and beyond. The New Moon is sandwiched between him and the asteroids Pallas Athena (feminine power to lead and strategize) and Chiron (our abiding wound and the challenge to master physical existence). A little further out, but still within orb, is Mercury , the cosmic messenger, who rules both communication and traffic flow. That immerses heart and mind in one big dreamy bath of transcendence, feminine wisdom, multi-level healing and non-rational communication.
