Best get out your own personal birth chart, now, and have a look at what areas of life this moon’s illuminating for you.
New Moon in Pisces!
In general, new moons are about a beginning of something, this one may involve an ending, putting something to rest, letting go and surrendering. The Sun and Moon are conjunct to Mercury Rx, what have you been thinking about, what’s going on in your head, what are you communicating to yourself about or what’s stuck in your head that you keep going over? The thoughts you’re having may help with the beginning which is also the end. Another way is to be open, receptive and intuitive to help you find the beginning and the end.
Either, get out of your head and go into feeling or get in your head and pay attention to what is going on in there. Listen and feel, will lead to knowing. Keep in mind that this is a Pisces new moon, make sure that it’s all still rooted into reality, don’t go into delusion or illusion, sand castle in the sky mode, hopefully the earth bond energies will keep you grounded.
Mars in Capricorn is harmoniously connecting to this moon, if there’s any action or way to go, Mars helps you by showing you the way or what to do. It may come in a thought, an intuitive feeling, a deep knowing. You may find that this is a way through Moon, that get’s you out of a place, situation, something that’s been hanging around since December. Being a Pisces moon, there may be a surrendering of something, handing it over, relaxing into what is.
Trust in what you feel.
Uranus in Taurus, helping you to go forward into the new future, helping with any changes that you have been going through or that are happening. Both are in earth signs offering support and stability which helps you to build. Which is what we are all doing, building a new identity, life and world. Nice time to leave some things behind.
It’s about the way forward, this new moon is highlighting that you can only go that way, no going back, no matter how much you would like to. Big shifts and changes you have been going through.
The Pisces leads us to surrender to our life now, it’s different, yes, you’ve changed, yes and it’s time to be open and receptive to the new life that is.
Pisces is the end of the road.
Mercury is Rx, so the road my be a meandering and a winding one, so, it might take a while for the momentum to build.
Generally this connection is restless and brings with it a high vibe energy, it also brings with it a break away for freedom, the last chance to get away from limitations. Ideally it’s a time when you want to be assertive, well that’s the general idea. It can also be a sudden surprise in some form, you maybe impulsive, a desire is burning and the agitation gets to you. Taking care and pausing for a moment is very useful if this pair causes you to get ruffled and fired up, because they do bring the fire, it may come through as aggression, anger and being pissed off, people or you, may be overly assertive. Everybody wants things to change and maybe the friction will make that happen. Don’t get to caught up or let your impulses get carried away and take action that you may regret. Afterwards you see where you land, when Mars grounds down into Taurus tomorrow and reality sets in.
Wrapping up a story about identity, action and direction taken from 2010-2011, it’s an ending of Uranus’s time in Aries, where a lot happened, the goal was for you to change, to be someone new, to break away from all of the ties that held your personality in, a new you had to break out. Mars last pass by seals the deal. So, the question is where are you now? How have you changed over the last 7-8 years? How have you asserted, expressed yourself, either willing or being pushed and poked by other individuals, what are you left with? What was the motivation behind the action taken. What have you learnt about yourself from others?
Mars/Uranus conjunct may be asking or showing you, are you sparky enough, what ignites your passion or desire, what sparks and excites you? If there’s no spark, passion, desire and drive, where does that leave you, in what space? Feeling no passion or desire inside may be a good thing, you’re at a blank slate, there’s room for more discovery and working out what you value in the things you desire, which will be handy in the coming years.
Whatever is happening and it will be different for everyone. It’s the ending of a story, of an old identity, “who are you…. now” and where to go from here. Taurus: Mars leads the way enters tomorrow, Uranus follows in March, pay attention to this spot, you will get some glimmer or indication of what the Uranus in Taurus is for you.
Taurus is resources, survival, material, physical realms and values. In Aries you personally(self) were shaken in one way or another, in Taurus areas of money, possession or values are going to be awaken for change.

This New Moon(15 deg of Sagittarius) @ 5:20 pm squares a Mars/Neptune conjunction in Pisces.
Sagittarius: (religion, faith, belief, journey)
Pisces: (spirituality, trust, ideal, dreams)
New Moon in Sagittarius – abundance, prosperity, fun, adventure, travel, stimulation. Some may be seeking more knowledge, wisdom, understanding and meaning to your life and this will prompt you to expand, go on a journey to new places and horizons.
Jupiter in Sagittarius is backing up the New Moon it’s ready to go, to expand, a big push energy, bold and enthusiastic. Mars conjunct Neptune is a new beginnings, a new dream or vision, the seeking of something more, taking you to a higher place/ground.
The square to Mars/Neptune in Pisces, brings in some tension or pressure to act, to get out from under it, you can feel irritated and restless, channel this energy into something positive to help you work it off or get you out of it. The square aspect between Sagittarius and Pisces the action or vision is lost.
The arrow shoots out, you just don’t know where it is or where it will land.
The elusiveness of Pisces can weaken the energy behind the action, also makes it difficult to control the outcome, a little faith and fate may be working and needed, plus being open minded, flexible and patient.
Sagittarius side is high energy, Pisces side is less so, this may mean that the dream, vision or goal(ultimate goal) has not really formulated yet(timing), either in your mind or heart and it’s not quite ready to come to full form or be seen. Keep paying attention, you will see or know it soon, that’s when to shoot or Go. (probably not until the new year).
Feels like intentions setting of: waiting for the instinctual, natural, raw, response, knowing when to Go (you’re in the ready, again timing).
Don’t let illusions, delusions, fears or false starts block you from achieving.
There’s a lot of water in the chart and planets in mutable signs, nothing is fixed to make it stick.
Mercury went Direct a few hours before this New Moon, information is still coming in.
Chiron goes Direct on the 9th, more healing to be done, wrap this up first.
Keep the faith and trust it! Which is what both these signs are about.
The year is wrapping up, here are some of the astro aspects for the month. It’s been a wild year, one with lots of twist, turns and surprises thanks to Uranus blowing out of Aries and into Taurus.
The month starts off with Moon in Virgo and ends the year with the Moon in Scorpio.
Uranus will be the only planet Rx at end of year, goes Direct on January 7th in Aries.
Just before Mars in Pisces hits is home sign of Aries on January 1st, he meets up with Chiron(feeling vulnerable/sore spot/wounding/healing), here you have the opportunity to heal or work with a sore spot, to turn a weakness into a strength. Taking some kind of action towards making something better.
Which may be a good thing as this gives you the opportunity to take care of some of the areas of life that have been battered and bruised. Aries is the planet of action/direction but it’s also your identity, your fiery energized self.
Mars bolts into Aries on Jan 1st, back to his home sign, Mars had a long rough Rx phrase this year and now is ready to go home to Aries, where the action planet is strong.

A finger of God – Mercury(point) – Neptune/Pluto
Phew! that’s been a wild ride!
Eclipses come in groups, every 6 months, eclipses happen in the same signs for roughly 2 years. The first eclipse in Leo happened in February 2017, the last will be January 2019. So you will be wrapping up this Leo themed season of eclipse then, what has the Lion been showing you?
As you know Eclipses shake or shape the path you are on, to me the eclipse are the universe way of shaking, stepping in or stepping you up to get you back on track or on purpose. It’s a helping hand when you are losing your way, of course it’s not easy, as it’s sometimes a bit of a surprise.
It’s in the theme of Leo, this is where all of the action or path forward is in.
Leo – attraction, attention, purpose or passion, pride or proud. It’s a time to step into leadership in your life, to look forward with a strength, courage and heart of Lion King. The Leo eclipses over the last year or so, is showing, asking you to be brave, to find that confidence within to conquer your fears and to come out from behind the shadow of the old self that has lacked the confidence to shine, to be who you really are and to show off the gifts that lay within you. The light is shining here.
Sun and Moon conjunct Mercury Rx, illuminating some information, communication, thoughts or thinking about what Mercury is going back over in some area of life. It’s still all up in the air and the information may still be not ready to settle. Still some uncertainty perhaps. Lots of thinking and going over going on here. Mercury is the point in the Yod, talking to God.
The Yod (finger of God) – between Mercury, Pluto and Neptune, a higher purpose, path or way is involved here. Pluto (power and transformation), Neptune, the mystic, dream, a pull towards a dream, may help you to get what you want. Mercury is the point, talking to God, with the adjustment to make it happen.
Mercury square Jupiter, your might have big plans or thoughts that you want to take far, (or something is or was taken to far) you want to broaden your horizons. Jupiter can be expansive energy, likes to exaggerate. Try not to be too over the top. This is where you have to not let the Leo ego or false confidence take over, a higher purpose is at play here. **Jupiter trines Neptune 19th, the plans or ideas that you want, if in alignment with your higher plan or purpose you will be able to take this further.**
Eclipses, set the way, correct the course, an element of trust, faith, and letting go and handing over plays a very big part. Best approach is to go with it. You will see what the end result is in 2019 when the Leo season of eclipses are over.
Like always look at your own birth chart to see where all of this is happening.
June starts off emotional, coming off a full moon in Sagittarius, it feels like the push-off from the side, allowing your emotions to drift you out, it’s uncomfortable, feels unstable. It will take a whole lot of faith and trust not only in yourself and your skills, talents and gifts, in others and the cosmos too.
Venus + Jupiter + Neptune Grand Trine – June 1st & 2nd
Sun conjunct Mercury – 6th
Mercury enters Cancer – 13th
New moon in Gemini – 14th
Venus enters Leo – 14th
Neptune Rx – 19th
Sun enters Cancer + Solstice – 21st
Mars Rx – 27th
Full moon in Capricorn – 28th
Mercury enters Leo – 29th
Another month of twist and turns and roundabouts.
Neptune and Mars both go Rx, adds to the other planets also Rx, Saturn, Pluto and Jupiter. You get a pull back and slow or slowing down feeling. Which may not be so bad as you gotta catch up with yourself and check in with all that has been happening.
Of course the Sun changes signs and enters Cancer + Solstice time, new moon and full moon to set intentions and brings culmination and release.
Mercury the planet of communication and information is moving quickly through the signs, life happens quickly.
Mercury enters Leo by months end, it’s about true self-expression, Mercury goes Rx in July and Eclipses are coming. Best to take the time at the end of month for some reflection and tuning in, tapping into the internal and external changes that have taken place.
Ending, beginnings and all of the damn things in between.
“In the end, it all begins” ― Saji Ijiyemi
Full moon is square to north and south nodes + sextile to Saturn.
The layers that you have build around you, disintegrate, the past that you were buried under slowing falls away under the shadow and light of this full moon.
The energy is high, emotions are intense, the square puts you in a crisis mode, you want to stay in the stable, secure place, that your kinda comfy in. But the old is worn out and stale/stagnate, it no longer brings passion. To leave the old behind is scary, to face the new is unknown, this makes you feel uncomfortable and unsure. Brings in the fear.
Deep inside you want passion, connection, your spirit to feel challenged and alive. you want an authentic feeling, presence and essence to shine from you. To hang on is hard, to not let go is way harder. Bring peace to your heart, seek inside for the answers.
Allow what your deep emotions are telling you to do, it’s time to cross over. To let the shadows, the pain dissolve and come into the light.
Saturn/moon meet up with a harmonious sextile to help you to cross, a gentle nudge, push for your success. This does help with some nourishment, nature, comfort and security. They will also help crystallize the changes from the past that you are making. You have a good chance of success, a positive change.
Go steady, be determined, be sure. Trust the process, feel empowered and follow your heart to transformation and healing.
New Moon in Aries, 16th @11:57 am, conjunct Uranus.
Mercury Rx slowed you down, frustrated the hell out of you, now you have some new information, insight, realizations about all of that and you are ready for the new, filled with energy and enthusiasm/drive for the next step or action you take. Even though you may still be feeling vulnerable and know that a touch of courage is needed.
- Keep in mind that Mercury squares Saturn(26th), don’t go rushing to far ahead full of enthusiasm or be too impulsive as Saturn will put the brakes on. You want to come out of the gate sure and steady, not wobbly.
Being conjunct Uranus, for the last time in Aries as Uranus enters Taurus in May. Being the last, you are wrapping up this 7-8 year journey, what surprises, breakdowns/breakthroughs did you endure. Uranus, destabilizes situations that are not strong enough to withstand the volt it brings. Hopefully you have found some insight and truth to you(identity/Aries) and how you work in this life.
Uranus brings it’s on style and unique edge to this New Moon. What’s Uranus? independence, individuation, takes us out of the comfort zone, future plans, goal, visions, opens you up for change and trying something new. Uranus amps up the energy here, gives the Aries Moon/Sun the push to go for the new.
Aries is all about you, what action or direction do you want to take now, what areas of life do you want to start over again with, bring in a new vibe for the year ahead as Aries is the beginning of the zodiac year, it starts now.
Start of with using this high energy for a positive start for change in your life.
Set your intentions, write them out, get clear in your head about the direction or focus you want the year ahead to be. What did the Mercury Rx tell you or show you, part of the information or awakening to help you out.
But most of all how do YOU want to be in the year ahead?
