New Moon in Pisces Conjunct Chiron | Mars into Capricorn - beginning from a weak position, something hurts, feeling vulnerable, turning a weakness into a strength, mining that Scorpio, getting serious about our next steps

connective by dozhdlivaya

Today, we have Mars moving into Capricorn (finally leaving Sagittarius!) where he is exalted. We have the Sun and Moon meeting up in Pisces, squaring Mars (at the very end of Sag) and hooking up to Chiron while trining that retrograde Jupiter in Scorpio.

Let's start with Mars, although he makes his move last.

Mars is extremely effective in Capricorn (answering to Saturn), kind of the way a hot-head tossed into the serious, structure of the military can thrive. In Capricorn, our Mars has goals and deadlines - he can't be just mucking around town causing trouble.

Our actions (Mars) are ambitious (Capricorn). Results come over time.

Now, we know Capricorn is a serious (maybe I would add dangerous) space right now because both Pluto and Saturn are in Capricorn.

Our Mars (actions - what we do to get what we want, anger, passion) is going to hit Saturn on April 2nd (8 degrees Capricorn) - there's that wall, that limit, that "no" or that extra elbow grease required via our action. Then on April 26th (21 degrees Capricorn), Mars is going to come crashing into Pluto - destruction, transformation, new life. The last time Mars conjuncted Pluto was October 19, 2016 (15 degrees). Late April's situations could connect us back to that time period. Also because this is just one degree shy of the HUGE Pluto/Saturn conjunction in 2020 - this Mars/Pluto now will have added impact.

As soon as Mars moves into Capricorn 12:41PM EST today - we are on a collision course with this, so let's remember our actions/ambitions have consequences.

I mean, obviously our actions (and in-actions) always have consequences, but that future meeting with Pluto adds an extra priority for us to know what the hell we are doing right now.

If you know you are going to be meeting with the largest potential client you have ever had, or the president of your company, or a judge in precisely SIX WEEKS (well, not precisely I am rounding a bit) - what would you do today and tomorrow and the next day to make that meeting successful.

Do that. And then do some more of that. Know that Saturn will toss you a curveball (limit) in a couple weeks with whatever you are being ambitious about.  

Know you can handle it.

Ambitions/goals and focused efforts are required in Capricorn - let's make them count - let's focus on what matters most! There's is alot of ruthlessness expressed by Mars/Pluto - let's avoid participating in that. The collective needs us to not give our energy to that. We are following our hearts in Leo, giving what we are here to give. What's truly ours has to be ours. We won't have to grab it.

We will probably have to work for it though (Capricorn).

Now, immediately BEFORE Mars makes his move, the Sun and the Moon meet up for the NEW MOON IN PISCES at 26 degrees.

This is a fresh start for our Pisces house and coming near the end of the Sun's travels through Pisces we know we have needed to experience all the fog/indecision/illness - whatever this has been for you - of the last few weeks before we were ready for this new start. So what have we learned?

The Sun and Moon are conjuncting Chiron so we know something now is likely to hurt/heal.

There is a trine to Jupiter, retrograde in Scorpio, so this could be about something there (a change of belief maybe) or maybe something about poor decisions we made in the past. Whatever is happening now, our New Moon fresh start could be rooted in a point of weakness - and maybe that is the point now. After we are on our knees we might as well rise up and move in a new direction. There is a wide square to Mars (pre-Capricorn) that could suggest some kind of righteous anger (those beliefs again) or something/someone hitting (Mars) an open wound (Chiron).

Let's take a look by sign.

As always check your Sun and Rising signs - if you know your Pisces house check that because it might not match your Rising - I am forced to use whole houses here, although I am not really a fan of whole houses when looking at charts.

ARIES/Aries Rising (Pisces 12th house) - this New Moon is happening in your 12th house of what is hidden or put away or done behind the scenes, secrets, the ethereal realms, imagination, hospitals, spirituality, addiction, healing. The New Moon's beginning energy may be more about whatever is coming to a conclusion (12th house) and could involve stepping into the unknown. The trine to Jupiter (in your 8th house) suggests there could be financial/intimacy situations with other people and other people's resources you can count on now. The square to Mars (in your 9th house) suggests tension regarding your actions involving 9th house matters - travel, higher education, weddings, politics, legal issues, the media, publishing, foreigners, everything outside your comfort zone, exploration, your beliefs and higher thinking. Right after the New Moon, Mars will move your focus into your career/public life house. Use your ambitions there. Focus your actions there. Avoid ruthlessness. Know that Chiron is preparing to move into your sign (first visit since 1968!) in just a few weeks and you are preparing for a brand new life Aries. You have got this thing!

TAURUS/Taurus Rising (Pisces 11th house) this New Moon is happening in your house of the collective - your friendships, groups, causes, the internet, the public, the goals that bring you into relationship with other people, your advancement, technology. The New Moon's beginning energy is focused on a fresh start here with new alliances and opportunities. The trine to Jupiter (your 7th house Scorpio) assures that a partner/partnership is supportive (brakes off) with whatever is happening now or maybe who you know is more helpful than what you know. The square to Mars (your 8th house Sagittarius) speaks of tension with other people's resources - partner's income, taxes, loans, etc and/or intimacy/reproduction/birth/death issues - the Sun/Moon in your 11th house could make the situation 'public' in some way or bring you into relationship with other people or people at a distance. Right after the New Moon, Mars shifts your efforts toward your Capricorn house (your 9th house) - travel, higher education, weddings, politics, legal issues, the media, publishing, foreigners, everything outside your comfort zone, exploration, your beliefs and higher thinking. One or more of these themes is where you will be ambitious. Focus your efforts there. Avoid ruthlessness. Know that Uranus is preparing to visit your sign for a long stretch beginning in May (he will retrograde back out for a bit later in the year) - so expect the unexpected - and I know you, of all people, will hate that expression Taurus (being an Aquarius Sun/Scorpio rising - both fixed signs, too - I feel your pain here - ack!). You have got this thing!

GEMINI/Gemini Rising (Pisces 10th house) this New Moon is happening in your 10th house of your career, your calling, your achievements, your achievement goals, dad, business, authority, responsibility. The New Moon's beginning energy is focused on a fresh start here and is likely to carry some kind of painful recognition now. The trine to Jupiter (your 6th house Scorpio) assures assures that re-working situations involving your day-to-day actions, or actions you have taken toward improving your health/health of a creative project, etc will be what you can count on moving forward. The square to Mars (your 7th house Sag) speaks of tension with a partner, maybe a competitor or open enemy. Right after the New Moon, Mars shifts your efforts toward your Capricorn house (your 8th house) other people's resources, other people's values, intimacy, other people's money, spouse's income, loans, debts, taxes, inheritance, sex, reproduction. One or more of these themes is where you will be ambitious. This is also good energy for research and getting to the bottom of things. Focus your efforts there. Avoid ruthlessness. You have got this thing!

CANCER/Cancer Rising (Pisces 9th house) this New Moon is happening in your 9th house of travel, higher education, weddings, politics, legal issues, the media, publishing, foreigners, everything outside your comfort zone, exploration, your beliefs and higher thinking. The New Moon's beginning energy is focused on a fresh start here and is likely to carry some kind of painful recognition now. The trine to Jupiter (your 5th house Scorpio) assures that re-working situations involving children, a creative project, romance, fun and games is moving things forward. Note trines are "brakes off" times, so too much of a good thing in any of these areas (this house can speak of excess) could bring things to a head now, too. The square to Mars (your 6th house Sag) speaks of tension regarding your day-to-day activities, your work, health or a pet situation. Right after the New Moon, Mars shifts your efforts toward your Capricorn house (your 7th house) - partners/partnerships. This is where you will be ambitious. Focus your efforts there. Avoid ruthlessness. Your 7th house Capricorn wants/needs serious people. And it's time to get serious about what you want within an equal partnership (work, love, friendship). You have got this thing!

LEO/Leo Rising (Pisces 8th house) this New Moon is happening in your 8th house of other people's resources, other people's values, intimacy, other people's money, spouse's income, loans, debts, taxes, inheritance, sex, reproduction. The New Moon's beginning energy is focused on a fresh start here and is likely to carry some kind of painful recognition now. The trine to Jupiter (your 4th house Scorpio) assures that re-working situations involving home, family, your roots, mother, mothering, your ancestry, real estate or a home business issue can move things forward - maybe you have more than you think you do. The square to Mars (your 5th house Sag) speaks of tension regarding a romantic partner, issue with a child or maybe some kind of risky behavior/endeavor feeding into the New Moon's hurt/healing. Right after the New Moon, Mars shifts your efforts toward your Capricorn house (your 6th house) - it will be time to get organized and focus on your day-to-day actions and your health. Practical actions and attention to detail is needed now. Patience Leo. You have got this thing!

VIRGO/Virgo Rising (Pisces 7th house) this New Moon is happening in your 7th house of partners and partnership. The New Moon's beginning energy is focused on a fresh start here and is likely to carry some kind of painful recognition now. The trine to Jupiter (your 3rd house Scorpio) assures that forward movement comes through communication, information, writing, siblings, transportation or your local neighborhood. Most likely a conversation with a partner is a good idea although it could lead to argument - this is a Pisces fresh start - speak with compassion. The square to Mars (your 4th house Sag) speaks of tensions with home and family situations. There could be a situation from the past (4th house) that needs a pivot/release even if it hurts. With Mars headed into Capricorn and answering to Saturn - there won't be a quick fix and getting angry/more passionate about the situation isn't going to speed up the process. Right after the New Moon, Mars shifts your efforts toward your Capricorn house (your 5th house) creative projects, your self-expression, what you give birth to, children, romance and recreation. This is Leo's house - so move toward what your heart wants Virgo. This is where you will be ambitious. Focus your efforts there. Avoid ruthlessness. You have got this thing!

The square to Mars (your 3rd house) speaks of tensions via a conversation, communication, information or possibly through a sibling or transportation or local community issue. That square to the 6th house could mean an argument around an error (the house of crossing your t's and dotting your i's) or imbalance within a work/health situation. Right after the New Moon, Mars shifts your efforts toward your Capricorn house (your 4th house) and a home, family, your roots, mother, mothering, your ancestry, real estate or a home business situation. This is where you will be ambitious. Focus your efforts there. Avoid ruthlessness. You have got this thing!

Right after the New Moon, Mars shifts your efforts toward your Capricorn house (your 12th house) moving your efforts toward background issues, a healing situation or toward a 12th house time-out. The 12th house rules what is hidden or put away or done behind the scenes, secrets, the ethereal realms, imagination, hospitals, spirituality, addiction, healing.

NEW MOON AFFIRMATIONS

This moon is 26 degrees Pisces, affecting those born with planets at about 23-29 degrees of the mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces) most strongly (high emotions).

This is an excellent time for energetic support to make changes with things ruled by Pisces including our imagination, compassion, releasing victim-hood, spiritual healing, sensitivity, trust, addictions, lymphatic system, colds, feet, toxicity.

Some affirmations that I have used for a Pisces New Moon include:

1. I easily relax my mind and body deeply at night for a minimum of seven hours of restful sleep.
2. All debilitating sensitivity is easily lifted from me.
3. I trust that everything that occurs in my life is working for my higher good.
4. I easily attract, recognize and begin attending the right yoga class for me.
5. I easily release the habit of procrastination.
plus 5 more - Jan Spiller advises the power of 10 with this.


(notice I always like to toss in the word "easily"!)

AFFIRMATION TIPS: get into a positive frame of mind - meaning both happy and certain - a quiet, clean space where you can be alone - write your affirmations down by hand in script, speak them out loud - for a watery New Moon I will write my affirmations on strips of paper and burn them, releasing the ashes into moving water - then let's release our attention from these things knowing that our intention is known.  


Know these things are already yours. xo
