Happy New Moon in Pisces! Pisces rules the seas, and this lunation may bring to the surface things that have been hidden in the depths below. Chiron, known as the wounded healer, is conjunct the moon, and may be bringing our attention the ways we look to others to make us feel whole, as well as ways we believe ourselves to fill that void for others. The watery Piscean moon heightens the waves in our emotional ocean, and Chiron leads us to play out our wounded and confusing patterns, creating frustration but also offering insight. Chiron makes our pain painfully clear to us, which is nobody’s idea of a good time.
If you find yourself in any kind of emotional conflict with others right now, it could be very helpful to step away and examine if this incident reflects any of your own patterns of behavior or judgement. It is prudent now to ask ourselves how and where do we give up our power, how and where do we want or expect others to take care of us, and how and where do we sabotage ourselves? Chiron is always feeling somewhat incomplete, but in its highest vibration there is a witnessing and acceptance of the incompleteness. To say, in the face of one of the biggest pieces of self-help advice for example, “I don’t know how to truly love myself, and maybe I never will…but that is ok!” As we acknowledge the unvarnished truth, we subtly transmute the negative emotions and judgments that have kept us trapped and playing out the same stories over and over. Chiron helps us to see what our greatest wounds are, which is usually where our greatest super-powers are as well. As Leonard Cohen so beautifully said, “Forget your ‘perfect’ offering. There is a crack in everything: that’s where the light gets in.”
Whatever we recognize about ourselves at this time, Mars in its current position at 29 degrees Sagittarius may make us feel that, now that we know, we must ACT in order to learn and grow. But Mercury is stationing and about to go retrograde, and that retrograde period will likely reveal more as we continue to review, so don’t be too quick to leap. This New Moon is all about feeling, intuiting, and understanding. Actions and adjustments come later, but for now we are tasked with recognizing and accepting where we are RIGHT NOW. It is a time of reflection and potentially life-changing revelation on the sometimes-stormy seas of our human experience, and we’d be best served by setting sail willing to explore whatever we find, with the most compassion for ourselves that we can muster. <3
