New Moon In Pisces, 17th March 2018

At 1.11pm UK time on 17th, it's the annual new moon in Pisces. New moon is next to the healing asteroid Chiron and square to fiery Mars. New moons are about new beginnings and seeds sown that will grow and bear fruit later, and with Chiron and the sign of Pisces, it’s a very healing new moon indeed.

The watery sign of Pisces is about big emotional waves of wonder and reverie; be it via love, romance, art, music, stories, religion, food, drugs or alcohol, it’s about how, where and why we want to be moved by strong currents of dreams, desire and yearning. The bigger the better. The more sacred and cherished the better.

Because of this, one of the keywords for Pisces is ‘surrender’. Surrendering to the experience; giving up, giving over and going with the flow of it. It’s about non-resistance, non-defensiveness. No bounds and no limits. It’s a vulnerable, open, divine, and irresistible place to be.

Chiron is unresolved wounds and hurts resurfacing in order to experience the relief of the remedy. Mars is that masculine or yang drive for action and pursuit of goals and desires. Mars square to chiron this week has brought up a lot of old wounds and hurts connected to the Mars or masculine issues, but the new moon is a powerful symbol of a new phase, in which we surrender to the remedy, answer, or solution.

So for example, in the past you or others might have acted (Mars) in ways that felt hurtful (Chiron) to you, and this new moon energy is calling forth a powerful new emotional response (moon) in answer to all that. Perhaps the one who feels hurt will receive an antidote or solution, or perhaps the perpetrator redeems themselves somehow.

Or maybe it’s emotional hurt from the disillusionment of chasing the rainbows of our reverie, or from the disappointment of broken dreams or promises that stayed up in the air. All very Piscean issues, yet the new moon suggests seeds or fragments of a new or renewed dream that will blossom in very real ways.

Chiron in Pisces is about the emotional relief the solution brings. Mars square to Chiron suggests it’s a challenging journey to get there but the new moon is about that new sense of relief as an open door for future growth and experience.

How you can use this new moon energy to further your own healing: 

In myth, Chiron was the centaur who couldn’t heal himself. He was a renowned healer of others, but for himself he never found the remedy. This new moon could be a time to revisit areas where you feel you can’t forgive yourself, or that you or someone else did something to you that can’t be undone.

Underneath hurt is often unresolved grief or loss, so Pisces style self-care of compassion, acceptance and understanding applied unconditionally might soothe or comfort in new and healing ways.

Its also a time to look at what beliefs you are surrendering to. Do you believe things about yourself that disempower you? Or make you feel sad? Or make you feel frightened? Surrender to beliefs that make you feel better, not worse.

Addictions and habits often indicate areas where we are believing things about ourselves that don't serve us, denying us the reverie of our own Soul happiness. So allowing ourselves to feel the void of our own denial, instead of numbing it out with activities or substances is the first step in finding our way to closing the gaps that our distorted self-belief has left within us. Surrendering to true happiness, unconditionally, means giving up the pain of self-denial.

Pisces is a water sign, which means it’s about emotions. Physical disease is always a symptom of underlying emotional dis-ease, so this new moon is a good opportunity to look beyond physical symptoms by looking within to the emotions and feelings that accompany the illness or condition.

Abraham Hicks have said that the conditions of any disease or illness is designed to perpetuate and support the emotion/s that are experienced during it. In other words, look at how your illness or uncomfortable situation makes you feel while suffering in it (fearful, angry, unworthy, unlovable, etc etc) and consider how that the illness or set of circumstances works to hold that very emotion in place within you.

So emotional healing, not just physical healing, is a necessary step for any ailment or unwanted situation, in order for lasting healing to occur, and this new moon is a potent symbol of new emotional healing through new emotional understanding and awareness in weeks and months to come.
These words say it all:


It's not your back that hurts, but the burden.

It's not your eyes that hurt, but injustice.

It's not your head that hurts, it's your thoughts.

Not the throat, but what you don't express or say with anger.

Not the stomach hurts, but what the soul does not digest.

It's not the liver that hurts, it's the anger.

It's not your heart that hurts, but love.

And it is love itself that contains the most powerful medicine.

Thank you for these words ... my back HAS been hurting and to see the words there, almost confirming my pain, it's like a strange synchronicity.
