Pisces New Moon March 13, 2021

This New Moon is at 23 degrees and 4 minutes of Pisces and occurs at 4:21 AM Central Time March 13, 2021. The root energy in the date of this Moon is 12–The Hanged Man and Neptune energy. It also speaks to Empress and Venus energy. Thus, we have a real emphasis of Venus/Neptune energy as these two planets also blend with a conjunction on the same day. This New Moon is ruled by Jupiter in Aquarius and feels linked to spirituality, creativity, taking it easy and connecting with others

Set your intentions after 4:21 AM Central and within 8 hours of that time. Check in at the 1st Quarter Moon in Pisces on December 10, 2021 to see what is manifesting as a result of your intentions you set today.

The Full Moon in Pisces on September 10, 2022 should bring clarity as to the meaning and purpose of the intentions you set with the New Moon March 13, 2021. Something will come to light or reveal itself around the themes and area of your chart you set intentions in.

The 3rd Quarter Moon phase on June 10, 2023 will start to bring a close to this cycle. This is the Harvest period where fruits of this cycle manifest. It’s the winding down of this phase and a time to reap what you’ve sown or set in motion with the New Moon intentions you set today.

Another consideration is the Sabian Symbol for 24 degrees Pisces which is, “An Inhabited Island.” This is about our ability to function independently no matter the circumstances and our ability to secure needed resources in what might initially feel like a hopeless situation. The idea of finding creative ways to cultivate what’s needed is key. When circumstances force us to come up with new ways of doing things, our life improves. This is about thinking outside the box and coming up with innovative solutions. We can look to the ruler of this New Moon, Jupiter in Aquarius, to help with this as Aquarius is an archetype that is inventive and progressive.  Where have you felt stuck? What can you do differently to achieve what you want or need? This is a creative New Moon and holds the potential in finding solutions to what seems impossible by re-thinking or inventing a new way to do something.

Other things to consider when setting intentions are the House topics of Pisces in your chart as well as the symbolism of Pisces. This archetype is compassionate, imaginative, creative, tolerant and spiritual.

Here are some practical tips to help work with this New Moon:

  1. Within 8 hours of the Pisces New Moon on March 13, 2021 (again, the time is 4:21 AM if you’re in the Central Time Zone) jot down your New Moon Wishes in your journal. I like to keep a separate “Moon Journal” for the entire 27 month process.
  2. I usually write at least three wishes or intentions but no more than 10 which tends to dilute the energy. It’s also important to hand write your wishes.
  3. Find the area of your chart where Pisces rules and tailor your thoughts around the themes of this house as well as the archetype of Pisces. This allows you to work with this energy and makes it personal to you

New Moon in Aquarius 2021.

This New Moon is at 23 degrees of Aquarius and occurs at 1:06 PM Central Time February 11, 2021. The root energy in the date of this Moon is 9–Completion. With endings come beginnings. This New Moon feels linked to new vision based on real world experience. When you know better, you do better. This is Air energy.

 This Moon is christened with 6 planets in Aquarius. We haven’t seen this many planets in this sign since February 1962.  Two of these planets are the benefics Venus and Jupiter which come together during this New Moon to give support for what has potential to grow in this part of your chart. Although this New Moon squares Mars in Taurus, Mars is in detriment and the planets in Aquarius are in a a stronger position. The ruler of this New Moon is in domicile which makes this New Moon an opportune time to plant seeds in overcoming what you struggle with in the Taurus part of your chart.

If you’re in to setting intentions with New Moons, this is one to pay close attention to. It would be worth following this Moon Family over the next 27 months as this is a powerful New Moon with so much energy concentrated in Aquarius.

Set your intentions after 1:06 PM Central and within 8 hours of that time. Check in at the 1st Quarter Moon in Aquarius on November 11, 2021 to see what is manifesting as a result of your intentions you set today. The 1st Quarter Moon in Aquarius in November will be at 19 degrees.

The Full Moon in Aquarius on August 12, 2022 at 19 degrees should bring clarity as to the meaning and purpose of the intentions you set with the New Moon today. Something will come to light or reveal itself around the themes and area of your chart you focus on today.

The 3rd Quarter Moon phase on May 12, 2023 at 21 degrees Aquarius will start to bring a close to this cycle. This is the Harvest period where fruits of this cycle manifest. It’s the winding down of this phase and a time to reap what you’ve sown or set in motion with the New Moon intentions you set today.

Another consideration is the Sabian Symbol for 23 degrees of Aquarius which is, “A Man Turning His Back On His Passions Teaches Deep Wisdom From His Experience.” This is about tempering emotions or desires that lead us to negative behaviors by cutting out the tap root. Through our experience in overcoming this, we can use that hard learned experience to help others. For example, a former substance abuser becomes the therapist who helps others overcome their addictions. Think about what this might mean for you. What and how have you learned to overcome negative behavior patterns? How can you help others who struggle?

Other things to consider when setting intentions are the House topics of Aquarius in your chart as well as the symbolism of Aquarius. Aquarius is futuristic, innovative, inventive, humanitarian and thinks outside the box.

This fits in perfectly for those who are in their Saturn Returns right now. Since Saturn, the ruler of this Moon is currently in Aquarius, setting intentions in this area might help reorient those toward a more authentic life path if they are in their 1st Saturn Return and it might help guide those entering their 2nd Saturn Return as to something they can give back to others based on all the wisdom and experience they’ve gained throughout the course of their life.

Here are some practical tips to help work with this New Moon:

  1. Within 8 hours of the Aquarius New Moon on February 11, 2021 (again, the time is 1:06 PM if you’re in the Central Time Zone) jot down your New Moon Wishes in your journal. I like to keep a separate “Moon Journal” for the entire 27 month process.
  2. I usually write at least three wishes or intentions but no more than 10 which tends to dilute the energy. It’s also important to hand write your wishes.
  3. Find the area of your chart where Aquarius rules and tailor your thoughts around the themes of this house as well as the archetype of Aquarius. This allows you to work with this energy and makes it personal to you

New Moon in Capricorn, January 12, 2021

This New Moon is at 23 degrees and 13 minutes of Capricorn and occurs at 11 PM Central Time January 12, 2021. The root energy in the date of this Moon is 9–Completion. With endings come beginnings. This New Moon feels linked to building new structures, foundations, stability and security. This is Earth energy.

 What stands out to me with this Moon is the fact that it’s occurring so close to Pluto within minutes of 24 degrees—that same degree where Pluto and Saturn tangled in January of 2020. Saturn and Pluto are associated with power struggles, redrawing boundaries. Historically, it has been associated with war.

A New Moon near Pluto may speak to the transfer of power. Capricorn is often associated with Government and Big Corporations. With Pluto and the Sun involved, it’s likely this new structure will involve battles of powerful egos and volatile emotions.

I think the ruler of this Moon in Aquarius is promising in that it speaks to building something with the perspective of what is best for humanity—society, the common man. I’m just wondering what it means that the overseer is away, in aversion to the area it manages, when this new beginning comes into contact with Pluto. Who’s minding the store?

It’s also noteworthy that this New Moon is close to Pluto in the United States Chart which speaks to a Pluto Return and the rebirth of America. Pluto is necessary in bringing to surface all the ugliness we sometimes would rather keep hidden but need to happen in order to clear out the toxins. It’s hard to move forward until the really dirty stuff is dealt with and cleared away.

As a country, we’re in the midst of a rebirth that will no doubt involve facing some harsh realities—clearing and cleaning up some ugly parts that have poisoned the system for a long time. It’s likely that things will continue to intensify with this transition, especially since Saturn also squares Mars. That can feel frustrating with moving forward as if one foot is on the gas and the other on the brake.

If you want to work consciously with this energy, this is the beginning of a new cycle, so now would be an ideal time to take part in this process. I like to keep a journal and track this cycle which takes about 27 months to complete.

Here are some practical tips to help work with this New Moon:

  1. Within 8 hours of the Capricorn New Moon on January 12, 2021 (again, the time is 11:00 PM if you’re in the Central Time Zone) jot down your New Moon Wishes in your journal. I like to keep a separate “Moon Journal” for the entire 27 month process.
  2. I usually write at least three wishes or intentions but no more than 10 which tends to dilute the energy. It’s also important to hand write your wishes.
  3. Find the area of your chart where Capricorn rules and tailor your thoughts around the themes of this house as well as the archetype of Capricorn. This allows you to work with this energy and makes it personal to you.

To help give some ideas about this archetype, Capricorn rules future security, responsibility, reaching goals, success, management skills, discipline and commitment to name a few. 

This is not a time of action but a time for planting.  Think about what you want to create until we can better see what comes to light with the next Quarter Moon in Capricorn October 13, 2021 at 20 degrees.

Something else to consider is the Sabian Symbol of this New Moon. At 23 degrees Capricorn, the symbolism is, “A Woman Entering A Convent.” I picture a spiritual retreat or satisfaction in something beyond the material world. Humility comes to mind as we cross a threshold into what we hope brings more peace. It’s hopeful yet uncertain. Where does this lead? With this Moon’s ruler in Aquarius, we can expect it to include a vision that seeks what’s best for humanity based on freedom and truth.

1st Quarter Moon and Covid-19

Approximately 9 months ago, the reality of Coronavirus 19 hit home for most of us here in the United States. Headlines at that time focused on developing a vaccine. Chloroquine and Remdesivir were mentioned as possible treatments.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration began allowing more testing of drugs they felt might be effective against the virus as the world eagerly awaited the testing to begin.

Astrologically, March 24, 2020 marked a New Moon in Aries at 4 degrees 12 minutes. New Moons are interesting to watch as you often see a story piece together every 9 months that follow each phase until a complete moon cycle has finished.

New Moons are like the beginning of something. A seed is planted. We don’t really know which direction it’s going until some time has passed. As the Moon takes on more light, we can better see how things are looking. So, with this New Moon back in March of 2020, there was focus on developing a vaccine and we really didn’t know how, when or if it might happen.

Nine months later on December 21, 2020 we have the 1st Quarter Moon in Aries and the general public is beginning to receive the vaccine for the first time. 1st Quarter Moons are about taking action and moving forward with something. Nine months ago we were just discussing a vaccine. Today, we’re distributing it.

In 9 more months with the Full Moon on September 20, 2021 we should know even more. Full Moons bring clarity. More about the vaccine or the virus in general will be revealed.

Full Moons also mark the culmination of things so hopefully by that time, we’ll start to see a significant reduction of cases or know more about this virus and the success of the vaccine in preventing new cases. All cards are on the table in the Full Moon phase. It should become even clearer which direction this is going at that time.
