New Moon in Pisces 13 March – Ocean of Dreams
This New Moon holds the keys to unlock divine compassion and universal love on a scale never experienced before. The alignment of the Sun and Moon with Neptune and Venus heralds a higher love, birthed in the healing waters of Pisces, the infinite ocean. This is the last new moon of the astrological year, coming a week before the Sun enters Aries. It is a time of dissolution and release, endings and letting go.
What do you wish to let go of from the past year? Many fears and traumas are needing to be washed away, in order to begin a new cycle with our energy intact. What do you wish to let go of from your whole life prior to now? From your past lives? Now is the time to surrender it up to the healing embrace of the Goddess.
The Piscean energy calls us to be softer, more compassionate. It calls us to be aware of all the people around us who need kindness. The vision of Neptune sees everyone as equal, whether young or old, male or female, beggars or kings. This vision allows us to see the light in the heart of all beings, and to touch many lights with our flame.
The nature of Pisces is like a playful child, who reverts to innocence after living through all the deep experiences of life. All the sorrows, all the pain, the dark nights of the soul and tests of strength, the heavenly joys and simple pleasures; growing in wisdom and devotion; and understanding that all have their burdens. What else is there to do but be childlike? To see life afresh in each moment, with an open, vulnerable heart.
Great sensitivity has its challenges, as every empath knows. The level of information that we process every day can cause overload and overwhelm. The amount of data online is too much for humans to take in, and it is important to limit our intake and stay away from “junk” information and toxic energies. This is also extremely important for children, who don’t know how to navigate this while navigating all the things that young people go through. The people around us, in our town, our city, our country, and the world as a whole are emitting their frequencies, thoughts and feelings, fears and emotions constantly and this creates the collective energy field. We are all affected by this, and as we raise our vibrations we in turn affect those around us.
With so much Neptunian energy, it is vital to cleanse and meditate, clear your energy field, and detach from energies that are not your own. The increasing ascension energies affect our systems as we evolve and change, and these are the frequencies we should be connecting to, so that we can stay grounded and aligned. On this new moon, connect with the healing power of water. Drinking pure water, hydrating, ritual bathing and hydrotherapy will help to cleanse the aura and emotional body, if you intend it and consciously release.
As the Sun and Moon conjunct Neptune, in Pisces its own sign, we can connect on a personal level to the deep and the high frequencies of spirit and the ascension codes. Neptune, Poseidon, is lord of the ocean, and there is an Atlantean connection we can tap into here. Neptune has a dissolving quality, like a vast ocean of consciousness. As we meditate and raise our frequency, we can offer up any confusion, negative energy and past hurts for clearing. Once we have cleaned our energy field, we can tap into oceanic wisdom and intelligence.
The waters of Pisces are like the womb of the Divine Mother, washing away the obstructions of the past year, and any fears you do not wish to see manifest. Allow yourself to be nurtured and held in a safe space, so that you can dream and vision your future. Dreams are extra potent at this time; you may receive prophetic dreams and messages from spirit. When you meditate and journey, or undergo hypnosis, truth may be revealed to you as the veils lift away.
The conjunction with Venus brings down the divine frequencies of Neptune into the realm of personal love. Relationships will be bathed in otherworldly qualities and dream frequencies. Soul mates and fated lovers may meet at this time, and existing relationships will deepen as you connect heart to heart with those you love. Pay attention to the gifts of Venus and Neptune at this time. Be open to receive the healing and abundant love, as you share this radiance with those around you.
With the Sun and Moon sextile Pluto, we have a rare opportunity to see our obstacles in a new light. Pluto in the last few degrees of Capricorn has been instrumental in the destruction and transformation of our reality as the old world is dying. The distant, icy energy of Pluto holds all of our fears, the shadows that we deny and suppress. This is a pivotal time to purge deep-rooted fears, and offer them up in this Neptunian healing window. The things that appear to be blocking us can actually serve as a springboard to catapult us into a new dimension of existence.
This new moon, may all our fears and obstructions be washed away. May we be reborn in the oceanic waters of Pisces, visioning the future of the deep dreams of our souls and the unconditional love of the Divine. May we create ourselves as we dream, may we birth new realities, surrendering to the power and magic that has always been here. May we know it. May we be it.

Full Moon in Virgo 27 February – Resurrection of the Goddess
This Full Moon in Virgo is a moon of crystalline purity. As you allow yourself to bathe in its cleansing light, it will reveal any obstructions that are blocking the radiance of spirit. Virgo is the sixth sign and has a crystalline quality of perfected matter. This full moon brings the message that inside you are eternally pure, your nature is pure from the very beginning. The light reveals the shadows, and seeing is releasing, with the eagle’s eye you can liberate yourself from the veils and vestiges of maya.
With the Sun in Pisces opposite the Moon in Virgo this is an axis of truth versus illusion. In the ocean of Pisces, all possibilities exist, swimming in the womb of the cosmic mother. In Virgo we have to choose, with precision and accuracy, which possibility to embody and bring into focus. We cannot remain swimming in limbo, floating in the bardo of dreams and illusions. It is time to know ourselves and choose the way. The Moon in Virgo says, be definite.
The Sun is conjunct Venus, exalted in Pisces. Venus is currently moving through the underworld, where she will join with the Sun on 25 March, renewing herself in the Source of all Life, as she prepares to rise as the morning star in May. So Venus as the Divine Feminine is in the phase of regeneration and rebirth. As she moves closer to the Sun, we can tap into the healing power of the Goddess in the beautiful sign of Pisces. Bathing in seasalt and essential oils with the intention of washing away negative energy, and drinking lots of pure water is a wonderful way of connecting with the cleansing power of the water element.
With three planets in Pisces, including Neptune, the ruler, there is a predominance of dreamy, watery energy; and the emotional realms are highlighted. Pay attention to subtle insights, sense impressions, and messages received in dreams. This is a time to be gentle with people, and remember to be kind and forgiving, as we never know another’s burdens. People may be extra sensitive at this time. There may be a sense of confusion, or being overwhelmed with subtle vibrations, and this full moon is a time to meditate on clarity. Virgo brings into focus, with pinpoint precision, the oceanic realms of Pisces.
The sign of inner purity, ripeness and abundance, Virgo is the maiden. She is the ancient sign of the Priestess, and the purity and fecundity of the Divine Feminine. In the constellation of Virgo, the virgin carries a wheatsheaf in her hand, symbol of a good harvest of life-giving grain. This is the gold that comes from a process of discernment and refinement, separating the wheat from the chaff. In the wheatsheaf is the star Spica, an incredibly bright star with the qualities of brilliance, excellence, and the perfection of abilities. This is the gift of Virgo, as we go through a process of purification to reveal the inner diamond of our Soul.
The Moon is trine Uranus, which is a harmonious aspect enabling us to connect with the positive qualities of the Great Awakener. Insights, ideas and inspirations arise to shift us out of our current reality. Aspects to Uranus can bring sudden change, shocks and surprises. At this time, be open to accepting new possibilities that may be completely outside your paradigm. Staying within the limitations of the mind creates stuckness. Accepting the idea that there is something more allows us to expand and rise, moving into our greatness.
The power of this full moon has the qualities of washing, cleansing, dreaming, regenerating ourselves in the vast realms of the Goddess, and crystallising those attributes we wish to keep and embody. Within each of us, the Divine Feminine can be resurrected. From the ocean of consciousness, we can recreate ourselves with the pure qualities of our soul. We will emerge stronger, unified and in tune with our purpose. Magical alchemy is occurring.
On this full moon, take some time to go within. Release, let go and allow yourself to be held. Accept what you are shown. Embrace the divine feminine energy, and allow a new crystal of purity to arise within your being.
Full Moon Blessings

Full Snow Moon 8° Virgo 08.17 GMT on 27 February
Sun enters Pisces 18 February
The Sun enters Pisces today, and for the coming month the focus will be on the emotional, intuitive realms. We move out of airy, intellectual Aquarius into sensing, feeling Pisces. The Sun illuminates the sign it is moving through with its vast radiance of divine light, highlighting these qualities.
Pisces is symbolised by two fishes, swimming in opposite directions. In the limitless ocean of consciousness, we have the choice to swim upward, evolve and ascend. Or we can spiral down into the murky depths, falling prey to illusions, addictions, and stagnation. The possibilities are vast and sometimes, it can be hard to know the right way to go. Pisces can succumb to confusion and overwhelm, as they sense everything and feel all of the emotions. The archetypal empath, they feel other people’s emotions as well as their own. Deeply compassionate, and natural healers, boundaries are one of the most important lessons of this sign. Learning to recognise what is your “stuff” and what is someone else’s. When you should help someone, and when you should fill your own cup and replenish yourself. If your energy field is not strong and protected, it will need regular cleansing from all the external vibrations.
While the Sun is in Pisces, meditate for clarity, if there is confusion on an issue. Rest well to prevent overwhelm. Take regular deep cleansing baths with Himalayan or Dead Sea salts, and work with essential oils and subtle essences to balance your energy field. Emerald and amethyst are beautiful Piscean crystals to work with.
