A New Moon in “compassionate” Pisces is taking place today (5:35 pm EST). We have a chance to align ourselves with the more “soulful” vibrations of this sign, as a way of renewal now. Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac, a space in which we put aside our ego and earthly ambitions to focus on nurturing our “inner world,” the domain of our feelings, dreams, imagination, creativity and intuition. In The Power of Intention, Wayner Dyer writes that our imagination is “God within us.”
Today’s New Moon is also conjunct “transcendent” Neptune in Pisces, something that has not happened in 165 years. Neptune is the modern day ruler of Pisces. It is also the planet that formally governs our imagination. Neptune is linked with prophecy, scripture, clerics, mystics, saints, angels, artists, poets, musicians, and healers. Neptune and Pisces also preside over those persons who could be described as “downtrodden,” or down on their luck. Also, they both govern disenfranchised elements, minority groups, civil rights’ matters, and individuals with addiction issues.
Interestingly, on the eve of the Sun’s conjunction with Neptune, last weekend, Pope Benedict announced seven new saints and also appointed 22 new Cardinals. Too, we had the high-profile funeral or “going home” ceremony for singer Whitney Houston, someone who also publicly struggled with substance abuse issues. On another level, Neptune rules oil, and headlines about rising gas prices have been dominating the news, the last few days.
We will want to note “the house” in our personal horoscopes that the New Moon is falling in, as that is the area of our life where we may be feeling more of a need for reflection now. It is also where we have a chance to be more creative, and where we can set powerful new intentions for ourselves. Too, it may be where we may be called upon to give back to others now. “The value of a man resides in what he gives and not in what he is capable of receiving.” Albert Einstein
