New Moon in Pisces: March 17
The Pisces New Moon quiets you down into a contemplative state after a period of revolutionary upheaval. Inequities happen when people divide themselves into categories of ‘us’ and ‘them,’ forgetting that in the end, we are all the same. Conflicts between people, tribes, and nations are victims of such divisive thinking.
Similarities Rather Than Differences
This particular new moon helps you to better understand the alliances between people rather than the differences. Consider your personal boundaries and how that has kept you from truly connecting with others on a more meaningful level. How open are you? How in touch are you with your feelings? Can you offer more compassion to make this world a harmonious place to live in?
You may begin to realize that there are universal truths among humans no matter what race, status, gender, age, or education level. Consider how you can make changes on a more personal level, offering not only your knowledge, but also your heart to those in most need. After all, society can’t truly change if the people within it still suffer emotionally.
Evolve your Soul
Look at the relationships you have with others. Check your feelings and see where you are blocked. Get in touch with your innermost self, minus the barriers. Evolve your soul by emphasizing the similarities you have with other people. Worry less about the differences. You may be surprised to find that a kind gesture or a hug can have strong reverberations.

This impatient, jumpy energy will only last a few hours but can be quite irritating while it’s here. Suddenly folks are touchy and hypersensitive, taking offense where none was intended, becoming easily defensive and having emotional outbursts. It’s too easy to have one’s feelings hurt during this brief period and wounds that take only seconds to inflict may take much longer to heal. Impulsive or emotionally based actions are likely during this time, and usually won’t be beneficial in the long term. Tempers are short and arguments can easily ensue if folks give in to the self-indulgence or selfishness that this transit can create.

Emotions swell during this brief transit and we can easily get carried away by feelings of sentimentality and nostalgia. The past seems like a utopian vision if we remember only the good and turn a blind eye toward the imperfect memories. Instead of looking back, we would do well to peer into the future. Visualizing our dreams and goals will actually get us started on the path toward their fulfillment. We do feel friendly and want to connect with others, particularly with family members and close friends. Self-indulgence is a distinct possibility now. Give in today and pay the price later.

Our perceptions are noticeably sharpened under this brief transit and much can be perceived in a short amount of time. Our intuition is increased and our vision is keen. Powerful emotions can surface now, which are best discharged through exercise or processed in a heart-to-heart talk with someone close. Even if the feelings are unpleasant, we quickly move through them to find their source and illuminate it. Therapeutic progress is actually easy during this transit because we’re willing to look fearlessly inside and dig up the muck, which then becomes compost to enhance future personal growth.
