New Moon Solar Eclipse in Pisces
March 8, 2016 18°56′ Pisces
5:54 PM EST (8:54 PM EST / 2:54 AM CEST on March 9 in Central Europe)
Solar eclipses reflect, in our human lives, masculine or yang energy (solar) that is either ended — eclipsed or blotted out — or brought in anew (a new person or situation). New Moons are about new beginnings and new energy. That makes this an extra powerful lunation because the New Moon is supported by the solar eclipse clearing out that which needs to go. It causes us, if male, to make the decision to release dead energy, old relatoinships, things which already died but continued to cling etc. If female, you will notice that a solar elc ipse is when a male is removed from your life, voluntarily or involuntarily if your time together is done or harmful.
The human community itself is filled with harm — filled with the wounds we create in each other and out communities. We are deeply wounded an in need of healing. In our woundedness we hurt ourselves and others. Chiron is close by this New Moon solar eclipse, to the theme of woundedness and healing is clear and pervasive. We are in need of healing. Now, not only is the painful wound able to be exposed and the source of the wounding able to be removed, the method of healing is also revealed.
This solar eclipse occurs in the sign of Pisces and focuses on the healing of some deep wound in your life, ensconced deeply in your soul. It may be a new or old wound, but now you have the opportunity to understand the source, remove it, cleanse the wound and aply whatever healing balm (metod) is necessary to bring healing and wholeness to you — spiritually, emotionally, financially, pschologically or sexually.
Healing Team Support – Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto
Three planets are supporting your healing new beginning: Jupiter in Virgo, Saturn in Sagittarius and Pluto in Capricorn. Think of it this way: you have been peppered with bullets and shrapnel and bene nursing old, unhealed wounded that cause you pain every day, limit your full movement and give you grief even in teh quiet moments. The pain has seemed never ended. Then suddenly, you are rescued from the battlefield and brought into the hospital. the doctor (New Moon solar eclipse) gets right to the wound(s) and exposes what is cuasing the pain and removes it form your body, cleansing it. The sources of he pain is gone. You need not live anymore in mental, physical, psychological, sexual or spiritual suffering and pain. But it is not over yet! The doctor knows that you have lived with this a long time and need rehabilitation and assistance with this new start. So in swoops a three-member support team (Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto) to make the healing permanent.
Jupiter in Virgo is opposite this New Moon and provides the practical and ethical groundwork for you to bring the healing to fruition. Jupiter is a blessing, expanding and bringing abundance. You will be rewarded for any and all ethical, moral and practical steps you take to heal your wounds at this time. Take the words “ethical” and “moral” to mean honesty. Now you must be open and honest about things. No more delaying and hiding. If you do not want to marry a woman (and have known it for a long time), tell her clearly instead of dragging it out and prolonging her fear, anxiety and worry. Your body, mind and spirit will be able to come out of hiding and expand. It will not necessarily be easy, but the groundwork, ethical approach and practical means will be made available and apparent to you, Jupiter in Virgo assures that taking an earthy, honest, ethical and grounded approach (not intellectual) will bring new beginnings.
A second aspect of this lunation is a square from Saturn in Sagittarius. Saturn ask for commitment, stability, and creating structure in facing your vulnerabilities and wounded, removing what is hindering your healing and applying whatever means necessary to bring wholeness and healing. Saturn will also punish you if you lie, hide and do anything unethical to someone at this time. Sagittarius is about freedom and with Saturn transiting this sign square the New Moon solar eclipse, it is Spirit giving the ability to create true freedom in your life – freedom from the pain of faulty structures and methods, immature philosophies/beliefs and bad habits that have wounded you in body, mind or spirit.
A third aspect is the quietly powerful Pluto in Capricorn that has been slowly and profoundly changing our colelctive world through showing us our deep wounds since 2004. Pluto in Capricorn sextile this lunation is the healing balm of transformation. You have faced wounding and death. You have seen the ugliness of all there is to see You have journyed through a wasteland of sufering and seeping sores of pain. You have grieved and been brought to the end of yourself. Now you start over again, a new person or from a new position. Now you can transform your suffering.
Recuperating After the Surgery
If you have had surgery, you know that after a major operation they make you get out of bed and walk the halls as well as have a bowel movement before they release you from the hospital. I can tell you from personal experience that it hurts like HELL. Walking up and down the hallway in a thin gown, holding your body parts together, shuffling back and forth is not enjoyable. Neither are those bowel movements. But you take the painkillers and do what you must in order to bring on the shift. Painkillers give you freedom fro pain so you can stand upright and walk and do whatever else you must do to complete the healing process. After a few days you are able to walk upright and faster. Your insides no longer feel under attack and you begin cooperating.
In the end, this entire lunation is about empowering you to grow and evolve through the pain. It is a powerful transformation of your soul.
Look to your natal chart and calculate your transits to see where this lunation affects you. Where the Sun and Moon (the New Moon) and Chiron in Pisces are is the life area in which you are wounded and where you are now being given a new beginning. This is the area of life where your new focus or goals must be in order to heal these next six months. The energy itself will be powerful until the next solar eclipse in September 2016. There could be a wound at this eclipse (especially if you are the one who is cut out of, removed or blotted out of someone’s life or someone is removed/blotted/cut from your life. An important man in your life may die or a man you wanted to marry may (finally) tell you he does not want to marry you you. But the thing is, typically, you knew the man was ill, in bad health or told you long ago that he did not want to get married. You have known where you are wounded. Now, there is no more time for deluding yourself (Pisces). Now you must focus on a new life, just as the departed man will. Your life will be better and more whole between March 2016 and September 2016. That is six months of healing power.
annealing Marvin Gaye
We talk a lot in this blog about the 8th house, which is the Pluto house of your chart. If your wound is sexual (sacral chakra), say in the Pluto-governed 8th house or you are a Pluto person (someone with planets in the 8th house), you will be able to channel Marvin Gaye singing “Sexual Healing”.
Helps to relieve my mind
Sexual healing baby, is good for me
Sexual healing is something that’s good for me
Whenever blue teardrops are fallin’
And my emotional stability is leaving me
There is something I can do
I can get on the telephone and call you up baby
And honey I know you’ll be there to relieve me
The love you give to me will free me
If you don’t know the thing you’re dealing
Ohh I can tell you, darling, that it’s sexual healing
In this case, this is the time when you should address your sexuality wound. I you have not talked about it, start therapy. If you haven’t been having a normal sex life, , take precautions and make practical steps to start having sex. Remove the hindrances you hav put in your way and make choices to start enjoying sex and the surrender, release and transformation it brings through the merging of your body with someone else’s.
The Eclipse and Your Life
Here is how to read your chart and the placements so you can understand how to heal, whatever your chart: The life area (house) where Jupiter in Virgo is located is where you can get practical tools for getting a grip on what will bring healing or it will reveal a person who brings that Jupiter in Virgo energy into your life. Either way, it will open your world in some way. It is where you must draw on honesty and openness, as well as be moral and ethical. The life area (house) where Saturn in Sagitarius is located at this lunation is where useless restructions must be brought to an end and new structures, relationships etc put into place that bring freedom by better fitting your beliefs and creating more solid structure. Hardwork, discipline and patience will be required. You may be frustrated and experience delays in this aspect of your healing, but the wait will be worth it because Saturn builds lasting relationships and structures in your life. Things will tend to be permanent and/or have lasting value when they finally come together. The life area (house) where Pluto in Capricorn is during this New Moon solar eclipse tells you what must be transformed in your life so you can heal. It warns you to avoid obsession and compulsion while remaining determined in achieving your healing goals. If Pluto is transiting your 6th house — get it together with your health. Start and continue doing serious physical exercise routine, change your diet, cleanse your body and better organize your life — or you will die earlier than you expected or in some nasty, painful way that could have been avoided. I guarantee it.
So, go get your healing!
