What a wonderful way to greet the spring equinox! At 09:35 on 20th March 2015 the new moon at 29°27’ Pisces will also be a Total Solar Eclipse over parts on the UK and Ireland. Not only is this spectacular celestial event at the final degree of the Zodiac, the moon will be at Perigee, making it a Super Moon (when the moon is its closest point to the Earth) causing the lunar body to appear 14% bigger than when it is at Apogee (furthest point). This new moon is the beginning of a cycle so anyone with a planet in aspect to the point of the Eclipse at 29° Pisces will be having a subconscious seed sewn into their life experience.
Those celebrating their birthday tomorrow will have their natal Sun in conjunction with the new moon Solar Eclipse. This will have an impact during the approaching 2¼ years. It may be that your future seems a little unclear at the moment, but if you track this mutable Lunar Gestation Cycle, you will soon discover that the next 9, 18 and 27 month increments are particularly poignant to you, how you see yourself as an individual and what you envisage for your future.
Those born around the 21st June or the 21st December will be experiencing the New Moon at a 90° angle – or Square – to your natal Sun and so this Eclipse will potentially spark a challenge to force you out of your comfort zone and press forward with ideas and inspiration. People with birthdays around the 22nd September will be experiencing the New Moon in opposition – 180° away from their natal Sun which will be experience in some way through the way you relate to others. (The Solar Eclipse will still be picking up on your Sun if you are born up to 1 week either side of these dates and if you have any other planet at these points, they will be affected, too).
Keep your eyes peeled for 9 months time on December 18th 2015, when the transiting moon will be at first quarter in at 26° Pisces. This is where challenges will present themselves that will really set the wheels of change in motion for the events of 9 months time. From that point when there will be a full moon (Sun-Moon opposition) at 24° Pisces. This full moon also happens to be a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse which will be visible from Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia. It is at this time, the unconscious seed that was sewn at the point of the new moon will be in full bloom and the fruits of this period and all your work toward this point will be out in the open for all to see.
This cycle draws to a close on June 17 2017 at 26° Pisces where this it reaches its last quarter – the winter of its life. The winds of change will be blowing and new challenges will be revealing themselves in time for you to tie up loose ends, learn from the lessons you have had and deal with the issues that have arisen in preparation for the next Lunar Gestation Cycle.
Regardless of whether this spectacular Super New Moon Eclipse picks up on one of your personal planets, you should create a New Moon Wish List tonight listing up to 14 things – anything you like – that you want to bring in to fruition in the next 2 weeks. If you keep doing this for every New moon, you can check your progress and observe Lunar Gestation Cycles that pick up on your personal degrees inhabited by planets in your natal chart.
