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.
The last trine (Dec 2017, May 25th & 20th Aug, 2018) between Jupiter in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces.
Jupiter likes to expand, Neptune dissolves the barriers or limits, a combo of these two especially in a trine, you just want to float along, get lost, submerge yourself into something lovely. You want to just let go, it’s a blissful feeling you want to sink into.
It can be a time of hope, optimism, faith and a spiritual journey. It may also be for some of you the push ahead you need, to move along as you feel more inspired, grateful, creative. Pay attention to your dreams or imagination, intuition may be higher and more finely attuned.
You may find what starts for you now is a journey you go on and you may just slide right into it, you want to go beyond the place you are. This can be anything depending on what is happening in your personal birth chart, or your goals and where you’re headed.
Do keep this in mind, is it right for you, time will tell? if all keeps going well, you feel good, you grow, if it’s not right for you, you will eventually hit the bottom, the blissful feeling goes. You may have been dealing with illusion, addictions, (Jupiter and Neptune both in water signs) can throw that into the mix, you generally just want to feel better or something other than what you have been feeling.
And trines make things easy for you.
Finding some release, relief!
This year starts right off with a super big moon in Cancer, it’s wrapped up in a water trine, emotional and the feels, with Neptune in Pisces, Mars in Scorpio. Mars is action and energy, you may feel revved up, may want to take some action, you are driven by your emotions, Neptune will take some of the heat or edge off Mars influence, Neptune can bring in the flow, softer, caring, compassionate and openness feel, Neptune will help to dissolve. Be sure you don’t get lost in the emotions, submerge yourself in them, be one with them for to long. Sun is linked to Neptune and Mars this is the way out of the trine otherwise you would have all the emotions without an outlet.
Sun in Capricorn, physical, structure, rules, truth and focus is the way out of the emotional realms or peaks if you do find yourself in one. With this moon you may be feeling it all. Best to ground down, be realistic in your approach and with yourself. Bring structure and form to you day or time, be disciplined.
Cancer/Capricorn axis is safety, security, comforts, internal and external, mother/father. You may be feeling some of these play out or be at the bottom of your emotions. You can see where you are wobbly, not so secure.
Venus and Pluto are on both sides of the Sun all in Capricorn, this brings in some intensity, as you may be longing for a deeper, richer, intense experience, you want to feel the strong connection on much deeper level then you have been. Your soul longs for some truth and depth.
Uranus stations goes direct on the same day as this full moon, another spark to the start of the year. Uranus has been Rx since, Aug, 2017, and gets a going. Uranus “the Great Awakener” chaos and change, excitement, freedom can start to come. New ideas and insight. Pay attention to what is happening now, it will be part of the year and eclipse energy.
Uranus can also be sudden, surprise, shock, quick energy.
Jupiter, Mars and the Nodes are lurking in the background doing more to influence you. Jupiter is moving on from meeting up with the Nodes of fate, looking at the bigger picture before you, and Mars will prompt you or encourage you to take action on that bigger idea or picture. Mars/Nodes will be exact on 3rd Jan.
Full moon the light and dark shadows, illuminations, culmination, rebirth and releases, it’s a heavy way to start the new year off, and whatever emotions bubble up to the surface for you to see, let them come out. The more that’s seen or felt the better off you will be, look at what comes out of the shadow in the moments of illumination. As that right there is your truth. And as you move through 2018 that is the only path to be on.
Moon enters Cancer @6:10:01 pm (aest)

Sometimes in life you feel like you are drowning in the choppy surf and with Neptune turning to go direct yesterday, you have had to keep your head above the waters to turn yourself around and set the course for the shores again.
What was/is real and what was/is not real, is the question Neptune brings to you in Rx you get shown some truth into situations, the fog lifts for moment so you can see clearly what the heck that’s about. You have to stop the daydream, look at the little niggly things that are constantly floating around in your mind and get a dose of reality. So if you have been avoiding things, which Neptune is the planet that likes to make you feel you want to keep it all away, Rx phrase is like “no take a look at that” and “time to address this” Yikes! and you don’t really have a choice. But the problem with all Neptune things it’s the little sensitivities that you really feel and that makes it all just too much to bear at times. You may constantly feel so overwhelmed with your emotions, problem is, it can be everybody’s emotions that you feel with Neptune, he connects us all to the great big cosmos. You pick up on the little frequencies that are out there.
Neptune is direct now, so you can get to move forward a little further with the journey and back to the dream state, now that you have taken care of that and hopefully you have opened your eyes to what is really going on, opened your eyes to the truth of things that you felt were floating around you. Try not to go back to wearing the rose-colored again to quickly, remember the job Neptune Rx was all about.
Neptune went RX on Jun 7, 2017.
VENUS enters SCORPIO,
Venus, planet of LoVe, money and values, what you want, enters into the emotional realm of Scorpio, so, these topics will get a little more obsessive, intense and even interesting.
Scorpio = intimacy, sex and power, this may bring up for you shadow parts of all of the above, particularly in why, you want what you want? Especially in love matters, you will want to go deeper, dive into the intensity of intimacy and bonding, it no longer serves to be charming or polite, you are driven more from a primal urge. Which Venus really does not like to much. It’s all a bit to hot and sweaty for her liking, as Scorpio is ruled by Mars. He has a different way of approaching love.
Watch out for obsession, manipulation, being too intense. Unless of course this is what you crave?
You will be looking at what really is your motivation or intention in love, money, values and relationships.

5 of cups. Move on!
Water, emotions, feelings, sensitive, intuition, flow.
Oh, the 5 of cups is the card or energy of the week.
Gotta say not one of my faves, that for sure. Last weeks energies have been rough and wild, this card may reflect on all of the emotions running around.
This one deals with disappointments, looking back and now you are in a place of despair, regret and sadness.
Can feel a sense of loss, separation.
This is the classic “crying over spilt milk” card .
But you know, 5 are opportunity for change, grow from the experience of the 5 of cups if it shows up for you this week.
Work through the emotions of disappointment, if they should surface. You are at a crossroads for change, changing past patterns and behaviours perhaps?
This is a pause card to, looking back and yet moving on from. There is more to come with the 5 of cups, but the question is do you want to reach for the other cups still standing, wanting to be filled with more experiences yet to come.
Or will you just stay looking back on past.
It does feel like a brief moment in time where you felt all of the emotions of past actions with regret. Best not to sit with it all to long, as you will and may miss opportunities.
Look towards the future instead.

Is something or someone calling you to come out, to move away from your everyday life!
This week working with the energy of 4 of cups, this cards brings up many meaning for you to look at and work with. These are all 4 of cups issues which may play a part of this week. You are focusing on the feeling, emotions part within yourself.
4’s deal with stability and security, positive and negative, but they bring in the questions of being more of stagnate/rut/routine nature.
Question to ask yourself, what does the 4 of cups mean to you.
- Feeling bored or dissatisfied with your everyday environment?
- Emotionally stuck or stagnant?
- What do you really want, how do you want to feel?
- Is there something on offer and you do not want to get out of your routine or rut to make the changes?
You can often feel like something is lacking in your life, you feel emotionally unfulfilled. This is the card of letting you know that you may actually want more to come into your life, to feel more.
This week can be a week for you to make the changes, to get out of the rut/routine and go get something to make your life feel more alive.
Two sides to this, can be stuck or stagnate and you may just want to stay there, but you may still feel dissatisfied, but there you stay, is life offering you others things to help you move on from the stagnation that is around you.
You may have to get out… to get. Take some time during this week to change up your routine to start the process of change, to bring the energy in.
