Welcome to the Astrology Snapshot for the next Lunar Cycle beginning at the upcoming New Moon in Pisces on February 23rd/24th.
This Lunar Cycle brings divine healing energy and the opportunity to bring Heaven (Pisces New Moon) to Earth (Virgo Full Moon) as we have strong cycles involving Neptune, Pisces, Virgo, Mercury turning direct and so much more!
This Lunar Cycle begins with the New Moon in Pisces bringing in a magical and very spiritual healing energy.
At this New Moon we get to sit with our greatest wish for our greatest healing. We can also harness the energy of compassion at this lunation and really allow deep healing at the level of soul so that we can move forwards and stop looping back to the past.
This is also the last New Moon in the Astrological New Year so there can be a potential to complete on a 12 month cycle as we prepare to begin again at the New Moon in initiating Aries next month.
We then move to the Full Moon in Virgo the priest-ess archetype. Virgo gets into the details and into what is real. At this Full Moon we can take the ideals seeded at the New Moon and make them real and grow in the world at this Virgo Full Moon.
If you are one for ritual and ceremony, then this is a powerful lunation to work with bringing Heaven (Pisces) to Earth (Virgo).
Then, just hours after the New Moon, we have Mercury turning direct! This is a lovely Mercury Retrograde cycle that really supports this Lunar Month as it is happening in Pisces and is giving us the opportunity to review and reorder our thoughts regarding the past and what we need to heal.
One last important piece that must be mentioned this Lunar Month is the Mars / Jupiter conjunction happening on March 20th! This is an important event as it is happening in Capricorn, the place where we have been going through a massive restructuring at the collective level.
It's a big moment to really fire up what you want to achieve in your life. This will be a huge boost!
KEY DATES & THEMES
(i) NEW MOON IN PISCES- FEBRUARY 23rd/24th
> Strong Neptune at play» Seeding in our highest spiritual goals!
This is a magical New Moon that will hold an energy for us to really tune into the spiritual realms. This lunation is the perfect time to open to our souls deepest spiritual intentions. If you know your Astrology Chart, look to the house you have Pisces in and work strongly with this energy.
(ii) FULL MOON IN VIRGO - MARCH 9th/10th
> Jupiter charges up this lunation » a well needed injection of faith!
This Full Moon has a very mixed energy to it. There is Jupiter powering up the lunation in a positive way plus Venus is conjunct Uranus. Mercury is also just about to go direct! It feels as though we could be tuning into our intuition differently and getting some really clear downloads to support our spiritual growth!
(iii) MERCURY RETROGRADE - FEBRUARY 17th - MARCH 10th
> In Pisces » reorganising our spiritual values
Mercury retrogrades are always time to reorganise our thoughts and the way we view life. This will be a moment to review what we have been working on and weave together all of our experiences so far, especially in the spiritual dimensions of our lives. This will be a major influence throughout this entire Lunar Cycle.
(iv) MARS CONJUNCT JUPITER - MARCH 20th
> In Capricorn » bringing through a big initiation
We have been through so much recently in this area of our lives of Capricorn. I have mentioned so many times that we are living in a time of shifting our relationship to power and power structures. It has been mostly heavy, but this conjunction will bring some big shifts and a big initiation into new dynamics with power! This feels like a really empowering moment!
:: There is of course so much more going on this lunar month which I am weaving into Ceremonies for people participating in <<<The Lunar Project>>>
I really feel there is an invitation to believe that we can bring great healing to our lives and to the Earth this month. Plus, we can really make traction on our spiritual goals at this time and at the same time - keep it real.
We have an opportunity to access the spiritual realms and get in touch with what the divine is wanting to communicate with us. This is a lunar phase to really work with practices that still the busy mind and take us into the spiritual realms.
Furthermore, the Axis of Pisces / Virgo asks how can I serve? This is a great question to contemplate during this Lunar Cycle. This is a great time to ask what is it that you can give to the world as opposed to what can you get from the world?
My wish is that even if you do not engage in Lunar Ritual and Ceremony, these emails offer you a heads up each month and support you in whatever personal development / practice you are working with.
But, if you are curious about working with these energies more consciously in ritual, then please reach out to me or check out <<The Lunar Project>> where every month we work in ritual in our own space in harmony with the Moon and Astrology. We do this with the intention to come back to our selves and to our deep inner knowing.
With love always,
