Eclipse starts- 12:41 AM PST New Moon- 2:36 AM PST Eclipse ends- 4:51 AM PST Spring Equinox- 3:45 PM PST- Sun Moves into Aries Lots of action happening in the sky tomorrow as Spring begins in North America and the Sun moves into Aries. A total Solar Eclipse will be visible in parts of Europe; however, unfortunately you will not see it in the US. The Moon will move in front of the Sun and reach its maximum coverage at 2:36 AM which will trigger a New Moon. The Moon covers less and less of the Sun until the eclipse finishes at 4:51 AM, just in time for us to sleep through the whole thing! The New Moon is in Pisces, the last sign or the 12th sign in the Zodiac. It will be at the last degree of Pisces (29 degrees 27 minutes). The Pisces sign depicts two fish swimming in opposite directions, one is connected to spirit and one is connected to matter. Pisces can engage with the divine, the cosmos, or the spirit realm. With an awareness of life beyond physical and mental reality, Pisces can dream, imagine and connect with the vastness of our universe and the threads that weave together our spiritual consciousness. It also needs to function on the Earth plane and therefore, engages with matter. In Pisces lowest expression, it can resort to feelings of victimhood, martyrdom, and addiction as it tries to cope with experiences of psychic and emotional sensitivity. The separation between self and other, spirit and matter can feel non-existent. With the cosmic events colliding tomorrow causing the Sun to dim and the dark of the New Moon to emerge under the final degree of Pisces, we can see that an ending of a cycle is occurring as a new one begins. We can look at our lives, our perceptions, our habits, our desires, our emotions and cast off that which no longer serves our souls path. Are there areas of your life that seek to be let go? Are there old ways of being in the world that just aren’t working for you anymore? Are there issues that are causing you suffering, you would like to release to spirit? A good practice for this New Moon would be to meditate, as Pisces rules meditation, and contemplate what you would like to release to spirit. What extra baggage may you be carrying around that may be separating your from loving connection with the divine and all that is? In Pisces highest expression, it is here to be of service, showing compassion and empathy as the distinction between self and other, ego and spirit dissolves into oneness. Light a candle tonight, write down your intentions to let go of the past, the attachment to outcomes, and reignite faith in the divine, the waking dream and bliss experienced when connected to the world beyond and within that speaks the language of LOVE. Burn or bury your offerings to release to spirit and enter into the new year. Find 29 degrees Pisces in your astrological chart to determine the area of life most ripe for release and embodied compassion to self through spirit. Happy New Astro/Lunar/Chinese Year!!!
