The New Moon at 7 Pisces happens on Tuesday February 24th 8:00 am Eastern and 5 am Pacific time.


With all the Aquarian energy swirling around, more and more people are asking, “Has the Age of Aquarius really started?” There was that conjunction of Jupiter and Mars in Aquarius last week, and the Moon does move through the 7th house once a day. Unfortunately, a new age does not come into the world like a baby. There's no set date. It's more like a tidal shift. The ebbing energy of the old is receding while the new energy is flowing in. There are tidal eddies that mix both, some that still drag back and even pool, and then there are strong sure currents that are leading the way to an Aquarian vision of peace, equality and love. If you're reading this, you're probably one of the people who are riding the Aquarian wave already. But there's still lots of old currents around. You might even get caught up in a few now that the Sun has moved into Pisces.

On Wednesday, February 18th, the Sun left the airy idealistic heights of Aquarius and plunged into the cosmic ocean currents of Pisces. Did you feel your attention shift? While there is still high-voltage energy traveling through Aquarius, we are directed to swan dive into the collective astral ocean. What are you feeling? What is everyone else feeling? Final question: Do you know if these feelings are your own or are you experiencing everyone else's feelings? That's the Piscean way – to feel everyone. We know we're all in this together, now more than ever. Pisces poses the question: What are WE feeling? And I'm asking: What are you going to do about it?

One of the brilliant gifts of Western culture is a healthy, strong yet flexible ego; developed through the workings of a deep intellect and a wide-open heart. When we are conscious that the ego is just part of a wholeness whose center is the Self – or soul – we can be a vessel for Spirit to work through, and can work selflessly for the group and soulfully for ourselves. We need the right kind of ego, one that helps us keep our sense of individuality at the same time as we feel at one with the world. A drop in the ocean is both drop and ocean.

We don't want to belong to a herd, which lacks individuality and is too easily swayed. We might agree to be part of a pack, like wolves. Which means we're responsible for our part of the show. We each get to chose what to do with the feelings. Usually the choices are Love or Hate, Courage or Fear, Passion or Anger. Pisces places us in the center of these feelings and says, choose Love.

There are still 4 planets and 2 asteroids as well as the North Node in Aquarius. Lots of energy focused into the group mind. As a matter of fact, someone called it an energy surge. And that's apt, because with last month's eclipses in Aquarius/Leo, and the other 6 to 7 planetary energies picking up on it, it is a unique energy nodal. The Aquarian energy gets very grounded and will be taken through the rest of the signs as the planets move around the zodiac. Especially Mars, which pushes us to act on our desires. For now, Mars is geared to the good of the group instead of self-interest.

On Feb. 17th Mars and Jupiter conjoined. Their combined energies bring to mind fuel and energy that stokes ingenuity, and with Neptune/Chiron also in Aquarius, creating connectedness and healing, and our Aquarian north node destiny pushing us forward to the new vision, it seems we're making some kind of leap in consciousness. We're becoming a world community, and even politics is picking up on it. (Which of course is usually the last place we'd find the new vision. So something is up!) Everyone feels this big wave of energy traveling through the world. While outwardly it seems destructive (Pluto in Capricorn) it is bringing change to the world. Out of death comes new life.

Everything is moving and changing. Anything seems possible. What do WE the People want? It was on February 17th that President Obama signed the big stimulus package into law. Did we get what we wanted out of it? Will it kick-start the economy? There was a bit of something for everyone. Mars in Aquarius works hard for the group, and Jupiter expands its influence. So Main St. got included in the Wall St. package - finally! Also, Mercury is still slowly emerging from the shadow of it's retrograde degrees, so it makes sense that the package had a hard time getting passed quickly. We needed to really look at it and make revisions where needed. (Mercury was retrograde when Obama was sworn in, but is direct now.) It's not perfect by any means – and the old forces are not dead, but we have three more oppositions between Uranus and Saturn to make it right. We have to figure out what to conserve and what to get rid of. Uranus will give us the insights we need and continue to bring in the new. Just tune in.

I believe that Americans are called to a higher consciousness at this point in our history. We are called on to live up to our ideals and create the country our forefathers imagined. Inner consciousness needs to be acted upon for social justice.
