“I’m going out to clean the pasture spring;
I’ll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I shan’t be gone long- You can come too.” Robert Frost
“We have this way of talking and we have another.
Despite what we wish and we fear may happen
We are alive with other life, as clear stones
Take form in the mountain.” Rumi
Saturday’s New Moon is at 25 degrees of Pisces conjunct Chiron. The New Moon is shortly followed by the Vernal Equinox on March 20 when the Sun enters Aries. A good use of the time between now and then is to do a little mental and emotional housekeeping and make room for new inspirations and ideas to surface.
Chiron -the asteroid of the Wounded Healer- has been in the sign of Pisces for seven years. It will enter the sign of Aries in April. Pisces is the sign of sacrifice, of compassion and empathy. It also governs the transpersonal and collective realms. Under this influence there can be a heightened awareness of the pain and suffering in the world which can be felt personally. There can be a longing for a return to transcendant – type unity.
Chiron is often highlighted in the charts of holistic healers as their work involves bringing the levels of body, mind and spirit into a more balanced or unified state.
There can be increased emotional sensitivity when Chiron is conjunct the New Moon. With Chiron’s theme of the Wounded Healer it provides a good time to review how personal wounds can not only trigger growth and healing but also increase awareness, compassion and empathy for the suffering in the world.
It also bodes well under this influence to consider what sustains hope and inspiration in your life.
It’s time to write a new script for the journey forward as we approach the Vernal Equinox on the 20th.
One of the Sabian symbols for the New Moon is, “Light breaking into many colors as it passes through a prism.” Lynda Hill
