Happy Friday, friends! Enjoy it while it lasts, because a new moon in Pisces is going to come crashing down on your party on Saturday, March 17 at 6:12 AM PST. With the sun and moon both in Pisces, you're likely to be swimming in ALL THE FEELS this weekend, especially if there's alcohol involved. Have fun?
New moons are when the sun, which represents your identity, is at the same degree as the moon, which represents your emotions. This particular new moon is joining the sun in Pisces, the sign of empathy, intuition, idealism, and more emotionsssss. In other words, you'll either feel super f*cking emotional or completely disassociated this weekend, depending on your coping strategy.
Pisces is associated with the ocean, and so this energy can feel like waves of feelings and ideas are crashing down on you constantly. You may feel like you, yourself, have become the ocean. This is a great time for growth, because you'll have access to your true self. It can also be deeply uncomfortable.
On a Saturday, too, when we're supposed to be out having fun. Very rude, Moon.
Some other planets are also lending their energy to this new moon party. The moon is square to Mars, the sign of action, and conjunct Chiron, the Wounded Healer planet. That means it will be activating old pains and traumas, and potentially causing you to feel stuck, combative, defensive, and insecure. Sounds great, right? Just keep it in mind and don't go throwing any drinks.
Luckily, the moon is also trine Jupiter in Scorpio, which is a positive aspect. Jupiter is the sign of expansion, so it'll lend this moody, dreamy new moon some potent good luck energy...if you can manage to harness it. Reach out to friends, focus on creative projects, and dream your biggest dreams. Yes, it's a rollercoaster, but sometimes we actually pay money to go on rollercoasters, so there must be something good about them, yeah?
You're not gonna make it back to shore right now, friend. Don't worry, though -- you're not going to stay underwater forever either. You're surfing. You're swimming. You're riding the Pisces waves.
New moons can be a difficult time, but they are also a time when your disparate parts come together. There's a lot of potent energy that can be used for anything you want to manifest. In general, new moons are a great time to start new ventures.
Or just cry a lot. That works, too.
