New Moon in Pisces

We have a Pisces New Moon occurring on 24 February 2020 at NZT
4.32 am. Some of you will be desiring more alone time and reflection, along with allowing your feelings to flow and letting go of what no longer serves your soul. There may be past memories that need clearing so do not be surprised if the past is on your mind.  Self-sabotaging behaviours may come up to be seen in order to let go of.  These are all typical themes we deal with this time every year, as Pisces represents the end of the astrological year. The Moon is making some nice aspects to other planets at the time of the New Moon, therefore we have some magic to tap into this month. We have the Moon ‘sextile’ Mars and Uranus. This shows the next lunar month is about breaking free from old outdated spiritual beliefs and to ascend higher when it comes to our values and goals.  It is great, as we can get super dreamy and at the same time have the ability to physically manifest those dreams into our reality.  In order to achieve that though, we must open up and allow the soul to help direct.  There is a ‘universal order’ to how things will play out this month so try and allow synchronicity to step in, as opposed to trying to control everything. There is magic in surrendering to the flow of the universe and trusting things will pan out as they should.  The more conscious awareness we have, the more we can discern what is real, so keep up your spiritual practices to ensure you are grounded and not getting swept up in the illusion. Dreams will be very vivid along with our psychic abilities. You may feel a bit confused and all over the place, but the fact you know this means you can sit back and observe what is coming up to heal and be released.  It is all happening to ultimately help show us the way to our soul purpose. Jupiter will be ‘squaring’ Venus at the time of this New Moon.  It is my prediction that this month has a big them on understanding our connections with relationships.  You will be shown possibly what certain relationships were about from your past, yet also showing you how far you have grown and where you are heading in your current relationships. You are discovering more about your values, and more about what a loving relationship is. I recommend you spend some time alone over the days of the New Moon and allow yourself to connect to your soul either through meditating/yoga or music. This is when the insights come to us and the healing can take place. Look to your Natal Chart and see which house is ruled by Pisces to get an in-depth idea where endings and beginnings are occurring with this New Moon.  Remember things/beliefs/emotions/people need to be let go of in order to attract more of what you need.

Sun enters Pisces

On 19 February 2020, the Sun moves into Pisces.  Pisces is represented by the two fish (i.e. the conscious and unconscious). What does this mean? You may find yourself acting in ways without thinking what you are doing over the next zodiac month – i.e. your soul takes over.  The veil between the spirit world and earth is very thin so watch for signs, synchronicities and hunches as your intuition around this time will be at a peak.   Pay attention to your dreams as they may be extremely vivid and have a sign for you.  Pisces is the last zodiac sign, therefore, it represents endings, completions and surrendering to the unknown.  Pisces energy creates a sense of mystery and makes us question the broader questions about life such as what is the meaning of life.  It is an extremely compassionate time where our boundaries come down and we have so much love for humanity and are more open to our spiritual side.  However, be careful not to fall to the flip side of this energy which is creating chaos, believing illusions, running from problems and acting deceptively.  It is a great time to spend with your elders, spending time by the water, doing yoga, listening to music and meditating.  It is a great time for healing as you are more in touch with your higher self for answers and realizations.  The bigger meaning makes more sense yet at the same time creates more questions about our existence.  If you sit back and enjoy the tidal waves, you will enjoy the blissful moments and downloads you have been waiting for.  Look to your house ruled by Pisces to see where you are being asked to surrender to the universe and let things happen organically.

Mars enters Capricorn

Mars the planet of action, assertion, and motivation (our masculine energy) enters Capricorn on 17 February 2020. During the next 6 weeks with this transit, we can expect to find ourselves working consciously closer with our goals and how we are going to achieve them.  Mars in Capricorn natives are known to want to be the top at what they do.  The qualities we will possess while Mars is here is striving to be a high achiever, ambitious, working hard and finding glory in success.  Things may take you longer to do but slow and steady wins the race.  You can expect a strong transformation to take place wherever Capricorn sits in your chart as Mars meets up with Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter.  You will be motivated to get to the bottom of things when this conjunction takes place and take responsibility for your path.  I would like to think we will be rewarded for our hard work with the Jupiter/Mars conjunction.  This reward could be both material and spiritual. Look to your Natal chart to the house ruled by Capricorn to see where some profound changes will occur along with where you are more motivated to work harder and set goals for the next 6 weeks.

Mercury retrograde in Pisces

Mercury the planet of communication goes retrograde on 17 February 2020 for 3 weeks.  Whenever a planet goes retrograde it does the reverse effects of what it does when it is going direct.  Mercury goes retrograde three times a year.  By rule, this is not a good time to sign any important documents, make any important decisions and start anything brand new.  There are definitely exceptions to the rule depending on the circumstance. As Mercury is the planet that helps us communicate our thoughts and deliver our communication whether in person or using technology, when it is retrograde it makes us internalize our thoughts and makes us very introspective over this period.  Mercury takes you back over old thought patterns that you may have glossed over and now have to take a deeper look into things (possibly need to address an issue you never got around to).  It also will make communication more confusing as there will be misunderstandings as we are not as clear with our communication. Around Mercury retrogrades, you can expect to be delayed when trying to get somewhere fast, miss appointments by getting the days/times mixed up, and technical break downs with technology and cars.   To know where Mercury is dragging you back to ponder over more, look to the house in your Natal chart ruled by Pisces.  For the collective, this energy is making us look at the deeper meaning of our existence and our connection to source.  People will want to be alone a lot more and there will be some interesting messages that will come through if you take the time to meditate. You will find listening to music, writing poems or doing art very therapeutic during these times.  It is a great time to go to some sort of therapy. It is not the best time to make any hard decisions as Pisces energy can be very deceiving and you may not be seeing things as they truly are.  It is vital to take extra care of yourself over these next few weeks as it can be highly overwhelming and triggering for some.

Venus enters Aries

“To conquer frustration, one must remain intensely focused on the outcome, not the obstacles”. Venus enters
Aries on 8th February 2020 where she couples up with Chiron in Aries. Venus rules our values and relationships. Chiron rules our wounds and sensitive stories that we would rather not acknowledge. With the two meeting up, you may find old wounds come up relating to your relationships and how you view your identity. Once Venus moves away from this conjunction after the next few days, you will notice intense passion and determination come to your relationships. Watch out for being too selfish as this is the downside to this transit. It is a time you will feel more careless with your money and more impulsive. Relationships will feel the heat more for the next month, so I suggest to channel your energy into physical activity if you feel frustrated and impatient with your loved ones – the frustration will pass fast. It is a great time to dive into new passions/projects, however, take a bit of time to assess the long term reality as you may find once Venus leaves Aries your energy/passion deflates. Look to your Natal chart and the house ruled by Aries to see where you get a boost of passion and feel-good energy.

Full Moon in Leo

We have a Full Moon in Leo occuring on 9 February 2020 NZT. This is highlighting our heart centre.  If there is one full moon that shows you what your heart loves the most and feels drawn to – this is it!  The opposite of Leo is Aquarius, so this full moon is about pulling our head and heart to work together.  Emotions will be extremely high and we are more likely to overreact. Self-love and self-worth will be highlighted under this full moon (you will notice if you are lacking in it or feeling full of confidence). Any issues you have in regards to matters of the heart will be brought up with this energy to be released – so I suggest to release any pent up energy whether through physical activity, creativity or crying. You will feel much lighter for it, which will then allow more love to flood in.  Sun salutes for you yogis out there will be great under this full moon as our heart centre is what is being focused on. This full moon is great for doing any hobbies you are passionate about and helping you navigate what those are.  Collectively it is a great time to fill up on self-love so we can help those around us who need more attention and love.  Being around children will be super fun as they have that Leo joyful and playful energy naturally.  In saying that little ones may be more demanding and throw tantrums for those parents out there around this time!  We attach more to our ego in Leo times so be careful not to attach too much to outcomes or what people say – in saying that people love compliments in these Leo times so dish them out. This Full Moon is making a trine to Mars. This is helping us to act on our instincts and to get active.  There will be a lot of passion and inspiration to tap into if you use the energy wisely.  Otherwise this can cause arguments and ego battles by trying to be too forceful. Check out your natal chart to the house ruled by Leo to get a better idea of how you are being affected.

Mercury enters Pisces

Mercury the planet of communication enters Pisces on 4 February 2020.  Be prepared for a whole lot of confusion, miscommunication, chaos, memory loss, wandering mind and feeling a bit ungrounded.   On the flip side, this is a great time to have conversations with your elders and talk about spirituality or even spending more time not talking and just sitting with your soul meditating.  Your intuition will be your best guide during the next 2 months and your imagination will be at a peak – so I encourage you to write down your ideas of your ideal future and take note of your dreams as they will be extremely vivid.  As you and others will be highly sensitive during this time, really watch how you communicate.  You will find listening to music, writing poems or doing art very therapeutic during these times.  It is not the best time to make any hard decisions as Pisces energy can be very deceiving and you may not be seeing things as they truly are.  It is, however, a great time to talk things through with loved ones that need resolving as this is the time when we feel the most compassion for others and our boundaries come down – do watch for people abusing your boundaries though!!  When we have Pisces energy occurring it is the universal time to step back and allow things to work out how the Universe has orchestrated things – in other words, try not to control everything.  Look to your Natal chart to see where you will be finding your thoughts drawn to for the next 2 months.

Sun enters Aquarius

The Sun moves into Aquarius on 21 January 2020.  When it comes to Aquarian energy it is an energy that requires us to find our uniqueness in the world and integrate it into the collective.  For the next month the best way to utilise this energy is by socialising among like-minded groups, changing up your routine and allowing for the unpredictable to crop up.  It is also a time to plan your future goals/dreams and come up with some solutions for future problems, as we are more likely to be able to think outside the box.  As Aquarius is an air sign, discussing ideas is beneficial and communication will be heightened.  This energy is great to find what makes you individual and unique from others and to focus on these qualities.  You may receive those “aha” moments and receive epiphanies with this placing.  Other occurrences that are likely to happen around this time is that you may notice yourself become a bit more distant/detached and scattering from one thing to the next.  If you find this happening I encourage you to ground yourself by getting out in nature so you can focus better on each task at hand.  The first couple of days when the Sun moves into Aquarius, it will square Uranus.  Some people may feel a lot more anxious and restless.  Try to use this energy to make changes that are necessary rather than projecting your chaotic feelings.  To get a more specific idea of how this energy is affecting you, check out your Natal chart to the house that is ruled by Aquarius or book a reading to learn more.

Mercury enters Aquarius

Mercury the planet of communication, ideas and how we think moves into Aquarius on 17 January 2020.  You will notice your thoughts speed up, ideas coming in hot and the ability to see things from a very different perspective – almost like your looking down on yourself and can see your life from an angle that allows you to see all your possible options.  It may be harder to concentrate as you find yourself wanting to rebel and do something different.  It’s a great time to listen to those ‘aha’ moments that will be coming to you (I suggest writing them down).  As Aquarius is an air sign, you will feel more detached than usual and more in your intellect (if you feel ungrounded get out into nature).  Stimulating conversations and topics about the future, technology, innovation, science, environment and the metaphysical are bound to crop up more than usual over the next few weeks.  You will feel attracted to like-minded people even more around this time and no doubt will be wanting to be around groups of friends more (good time to socialise). It’s a great time to be part of something with a great cause in your community.  Bob Marley is a great example of how this energy can be used to its best.  He was born with Mercury in Aquarius and was a big believer in unity and equality.  We can all take a leaf from his book when it comes to accepting everyone for who they are as unique individuals. Look to your Natal chart to the house ruled by Aquarius to get a deeper understanding of how this placement will affect your mind over the next few weeks.

Venus enters Pisces

On 14 January 2020 we have Venus entering Pisces.  Venus represents our relationships, our relationship to money and how we earn it, values and self-esteem.  With Venus sitting in the sign of Pisces we can expect our conscious and unconscious feelings arise within our partnerships and jobs, so you may find yourself acting in ways without thinking what you are doing.  The veil between the spirit world and earth is very thin so watch for signs, synchronicities and hunches as your intuition will be at a peak when it comes to matters of the heart.   Also, pay attention to your dreams as they may be extremely vivid and have a sign for you.  Pisces is the last zodiac sign, therefore, it represents endings, completions and surrendering to the unknown.  Pisces energy creates a sense of mystery and makes us question the broader questions about life such as what is the meaning of life.  It is an extremely compassionate time where our boundaries come down and we have so much love for humanity and are more open to our spiritual side.  However, be careful not to fall to the flip side of this energy bringing chaos, illusion, running from problems and acting deceptively.  It is a great time to spend with your elders, spending time by the water, and meditating.  Look to your house ruled by Pisces to see where you are being asked to surrender to the universe and let things happen organically.
