Talk about watery… did you read that headline? Saturday night the Moon washes over the south node and into sextile with Juno in Capricorn. Then Sunday morning it meets the Pisces Sun for a new moon eclipse conjunction. Are you married to your old life? Make way for the dream of something new – or awaken from an old dream to find a new perspective.
Friday the Moon moves through Aquarius, in sextile to Mars then moving to trine Jupiter. Moon to Mars in Aries is air to fire – enthusiasm. The building trine to Jupiter whips up emotion. In Aquarius, the emotional center is detached, elevated, experimental. Don’t confuse the personal with the impersonal. Arousal can be used for frustration or for fun. In the wake of the Leo full moon, there’s been much tension. The Aquarius Moon gives rise to the chance to take off sideways and leave those cares for something bigger than yourself. Aries Mars says MOVE – shake… Jupiter says expand. Open your heart up to the circulating air. Breathe. Talk!
On Saturday, Mercury hits the last degree of Aquarius as the Moon sextiles Uranus and Saturn and completes its trine to Jupiter. The Moon closes in on a conjunction to Mercury as Mercury moves to Pisces. The Moon moves to Pisces and overtakes Mercury. The heart chases understanding. Enlighten me! Satisfy my curiosity, I want to understand! But when you do, it’s bigger than expected, farther reaching. The emotional impact washes over like a wave. Good… bad… that’s not the issue. All encompassing and all together. There’s a new feeling of connectedness that is profound. It may take a bit to sink in.
You may find yourself high! Surrounded by drunks. Literally or metaphorically. It’s all talk until you’re swept away by the tide. Some will enjoy it, some not so much. It’s all in what you’re used to; but with this influence, you can get used to anything (if you choose).
As Saturday night turns to Sunday morning, the Pisces Moon moves over the south node and sextiles Juno in Capricorn. There’s going to be stability offered, available, something recognizable and reliable is there to catch on to and navigate by. Jealousy can flair when people are awash in emotion. Validate your connection to others and the same twinge can solidify into reassurance and connection. All creatures crave connection. When deprived they can lash out. So offer it freely. Touch base and renew that promise.
Sunday morning the Moon conjoins the Sun in Pisces at 8 degrees. The new moon eclipse is part of a stellium that includes Mercury, Pallas, and Chiron. The fire of the Leo full moon eclipse is quenched by the healing water of the Pisces new moon eclipse. Fire burned something out. This is a fresh, wet start that everyone is taking together. How together? How indeed. That’s what we’re just starting to find out. Take those first moments to acclimatize to something new, something different. How does it feel? Relax and let it simmer and flow.
In some ways, we’re all wiped clean… to reveal a great history that we share. Don’t look for what’s lost. Follow what shows up. Lost, gained, these are constructs that won’t necessarily apply at this juncture. Look for the side of the truth that feels like the active stream, the healthy stream. Get in that stream and flow with it. Don’t waste your energy fighting the current. Mars conjoins Uranus and moves into opposition with Jupiter. Push off into the flow and get somewhere NEW. Jump in! The water’s fine.
