The New Moon Solar Eclipse on March 8 2016 is at 19º Pisces Decan 2. This Solar Eclipse activates no powerful fixed stars, but there is a very strong Jupiter/Neptune theme and not just because the Eclipse is in Pisces either. You will see that the planetary aspects to this eclipse flood it with even more water. Pisces decan 2 is a Jupiter ruled decan and the most liquid area of Pisces, which means it also risks being the most toxic. This Solar Eclipse then will be supremely absorbent of its environment, so can work positively or negatively.
Victims, Saviours & Redemption
The most criminal and slimy of individuals could turn this great power into something quite nefarious. With Pisces decan 2 the evolutionary state of the soul is paramount, this Solar Eclipse will absorb toxins just as well as it can absorb love and bliss. Whatever the choice, it will just suck the juice out of it, so it better be good juice! So if we as the collective do not know who we are and have lost our sovereignty, then we are more prone to being unconsciously moulded and manipulated by our environment and that includes the mass media and Neptunian subliminal visuals we see everyday.
Solar Eclipse March 2016 ~ Horoscope
The Sun part of the Solar Eclipse actually does rather well in Pisces 2 since it corresponds to the 9 Of Cups, and so called ‘Wish card’ in the Tarot. The image in the Picatrix for Pisces 2 shows an inverted figure, rather like the Tarot’s hanged man, so that “the material and spiritual priorities have been inverted, and that the figure is grounded in the invisible, rather than upon the earth. Yet the inverted figure offers sustenance, proving that this strange act is not futile.”  The theme of self-sacrifice and of martyrdom comes with the Jesus/saviour archetype so strong in the decan. The natives will sacrifice themselves for their art or for a good cause.
Solar Eclipse in Pisces Decan 2
The Moon part of the Solar Eclipse is very happy in Pisces 2 due to its rulership here by triplicity. This placement natally has certainly brought out some powerful and influential women in the field of medical science and healing. Interesting that ‘cloning’ is found here too. It would suggest playing god (Jupiter’s influence) with the Moon as the womb of the Petri dish. Maybe the a Solar Eclipse here questions wether to dispense with god and spirituality all together, despite Pisces 2 being such a “religious” decan. The lesson here is to become your own guru since those with Moon Pisces 2 often feel let down by god or spirituality in some way. Richard Dawkins, who has this natally wrote the “God Delusion” he says “It’s a horrible idea that God, this paragon of wisdom and knowledge, power, couldn’t think of a better way to forgive us our sins than to come down to Earth in his alter ego as his son and have himself hideously tortured and executed so that he could forgive himself ”. Exploring the question of biology and divinity could also be an issue in the collective with this Solar Eclipse.
