The new moon March 2013 is at 21º Pisces, it falls in star-struck Pisces decan 3 and on Beta Reticulum, the star measurer. How cosmic is that? This is high-flying Pegasus’s domain and will be the last new Moon before the spring equinox (a mere 9 days away).Yee har, the sap is rising and it is fitting that so many personal planets are grouped in the womb of Pisces. Symbolic too is the fact rampant Mars is at 29º Pisces, (Oh Scheat!!) butting at the gate of Aries, ready to charge into springtime. We all damn well can’t wait another second. At this New Moon, the Yod of December 21 comes into effect yet again making us all wonder any paradigm shift happened. Well the world didn’t end, but the Pope resigned! That’s a Jupiter Yod for you.
Finger Of God
Religion and politics are two powerful ways of controlling the masses and are blended together in this Yod. Will we get some kind of political saviour, or is this the anti-christ? Yods are so unpredictable and can go either way. But it is looking very likely that the election of a new Pope will be during this Yod phase that ends April 7. (They have until March 19 according to tradition). At this New Moon, a Mercury retrograde sets fire to the tip of this Yod by a dynamic square aspect.
We can protect ourselves with that healing Chiron/Saturn/Pluto minor grand trine, so keep hold of your crystals and anchor yourself because there a lot of slooshy Piscean water about. And wasn’t Christ the fisher of men? Hmmm…Just look at that stellium! It’s making me feel rather sea-sick already.. We may be rather feeling lost at sea, but thankfully we have the New Moon in Reticulum! A Reticulum is an ancient star measurer. It’s a grid of fine lines, like a net, placed inside a telescope to measure the size of the object being looked at. Stars represent our dreams, our highest hopes, placing them in a Reticulum is like we are putting them into a structure, to assess them, seeing if we can realistically make these stellar fantasies work on earth.
