I am getting ready to head off to Raleigh in a few hours for Part One of my Introduction to Tarot workshop (What an auspicious moment to begin (or refine) your skills with the Tarot! Come join us —  there are a couple of seats still open!).

As my students call me “The Handout Queen,” and I still have lots of copies printing as I write this, I’m afraid I don’t really have much time to write this post all myself.

But I wouldn’t leave you in the lurch, since this is such a lovely New Moon, the first of two this month – a rare and magical occurrence!  And this is the lunation that will carry us into the rebirth of Springtime. Thankfully, there is a world of terrific perspective and information out there.

So I am including this excerpt from Simone Butler’s post on the Mooncircles website.  I love their site, which also features the wonderful Dana Gerhardt’s essay about how to call in Pisces, as well as her beautiful 3-minute Moon Ritual.

And don’t miss the other powerful essay there today, from their archives, for closing the circle as we come to the final days of the old astrological year, and prepare for the new that arrives at Ostara this month!

May all your rites be blessed, and this new beginning be profoundly of the highest good to all.

Pisces New Moon: Soulful Communion

By Simone Butler

Soulful communion, interspecies bonding, joyful learning—all depicted by the upcoming Pisces New Moon in exact trine to expansive Jupiter (March 1, 12:00 am PST).

Watery Pisces connects us all at the deepest level, while stationary Jupiter in connective Cancer brings the urge to bond as it prepares to turn forward within a week. Plus, messenger Mercury [turned] direct on Feb. 28, just prior to the New Moon, bringing greater mental clarity and helping us release internal frustrations from the last three weeks.

Sounds like cause for celebration, eh? Yes, but it’s a bit more complicated than that.

Tough love planets Mars and Saturn turn retrograde on March 1 and 2, respectively. Mars’ retrograde turn in Libra (through May 19) demands that we review and re-evaluate agreements and partnerships, while Saturn’s backward turn in Scorpio (thru July 19) plunges us into deep waters to heal old wounds and reassess emotional or financial commitments we’ve made since last fall.

This combination will require finesse and patience, especially through May. Yet the transcendent nature of the March 1 New Moon suggests that great blessings are coming if we just keep the faith, stay centered in our hearts and have compassion for one another.

Still, it’s wise to be extra cautious this weekend, especially when it comes to travel, finances and relationships, as Mars and Saturn both station retrograde….
