The New Moon in Pisces is taking place within hours of several other major astrological transits. This is really laying the groundwork for the revelations in the month ahead. Just a day after the start of a Mercury retrograde in Pisces, the messenger has begun his journey back from a critical 29 degrees of Pisces. This is the very last degree of the 360-degree astrological wheel, indicating truths that must be revealed for the soul's development. As with many other 29 degrees, this is also a turning point, before being thrust into the following sign, which happens to be Aries. Linked up at this beginning degree of Aries is Chiron, the wounded healer. It appears Mercury is journeying back through Neptune's mystical waters all month to retrieve a message about salvation. We have several weeks ahead of psychic insight and prophecy that will begin to reveal the path to self-healing and letting go. While Mercury may be retrograde, it will be making several positive trines to the North Node in Cancer, bringing messages about what truly is love, family, and healing.
Both the Sun, masculine energy, and the Moon, the emotional side are in harmonious aspect to Mars and Saturn. This indicates a lot of third-dimensional changes, and physical shifts in our lives, and the world around us. Neptune in Pisces is also in positive energy flow to Saturn. I call this laying the tracks of the imagination train for Neptune. While Neptune can at times be associated with agony or ecstasy, not many are aware that Neptune is associated with wishes. It’s very possible that if you dream it, it will come in the following months. The key is to be in alignment with what is real, what is your true glory plan. March will be the month to reassess your own personal dreams and reveal what is needed to be done to achieve them. Vesta is heavily connected to this New Moon, indicating some sort of spiritual knowledge or mentor may be giving insights to you now. This can be an excellent time to meet with a Psychic or Astrologer for some very insightful information about yourself.
Another interesting aspect of this moon is Uranus’s move back into the sign of Taurus. You want to review and think back to the last two times in 2018 where this happened, both in May and October 2018. Uranus represents a revolution, and sudden insights and change. It’s possible this New Moon will provide you with an experience that is suddenly helping you get your priorities straight. How much value are you putting in material objects or money? Are you finding your value system is changing? Taurus is a fixed Earth sign, and often times has tension when moving forward in making changes. Take note where you’re resisting, as it’s ushering you into several years of changes. Uranus is also very responsible for extreme Earth changes such as Volcanic eruptions, and extreme changes in weather. Venus has moved into Aquarius making squares to Uranus, which will ignite the conscious collective and push for what’s best for EVERYONE, the government, the Earth, and the future of our lives, for the better no matter how grim things may seem.
The Emphasis of planets in Pisces can often time bring up a great deal of confusion or cloudiness. With some slightly challenging aspects from Jupiter, it’s important to really take everything into consideration. Sit with information or situations and analyzes how you feel, how your body responds to conflict. Pay attention to your dreams. Watch out for false prophets, and be careful whose advice you buy, as Jupiter in Sagittarius puts an emphasis on everyone having some sort of guidance or solution. The truth is, only you will know what you believe to be true by the end of this Month. I advise you to take a listen to everyone. Keep what beliefs you like, and discard the rest. What may apply to one person, may not be your truth. What may be a healing path for others, may actually not be for you. Spirituality should always be shared, and affordable. You are a truly connected being. By tapping into meditation or your dreams, it’s very possible you already know the answer to your innermost questions. Trust in yourself and allow all the untruths and what no longer serves you go. Be excited about the new path that's being unveiled before you now.

What an excellent and abundant Full Moon! The Sun and the Moon are making their monthly opposition to one another in the opposite signs of Gemini and Sagittarius. Both representing ideas, communication, expansion. But Sagittarius is more prone to filtering out the noise and trying to expand the BIG PICTURE. Sagittarians are natural born story tellers. So what’s your story? This is a time to really sit down and ask yourself; what is it you want? Who or what do you want to be? What do you believe in? Where is your life heading? Your answer may be very far off from where you stand now, and that’s ok. If you’ve been spinning your wheels, and are ready to make some changes now is the time....
As with many aspects of the esoteric and occult and even mainstream religion, magic is composed of dualities. The most obvious divide is that of black ("bad") magic and white ("good") magic. From time to time, when acquaintances find out that I mess with the craft, they immediately ask "but you're doing the good kind of magic, right?" So, I personally prefer the Latin terms Maleficium and Beneficium. These better encapsulate the difference between working with ill intentions (malice) and working to heal (benefit). Although something of a trope, a sort of stereotype rooted more in both folklore and mass media than in how real magic is done in the world, this duality still helps classify our knowledge of the magical arts.
