We are now coming out of the 29-degree Pisces New Moon total solar eclipse March 20 that kicked off spring with a bang in the northern hemisphere. The "backdrop change" themes of that eclipse are now carried through Aries season (March 20 - April 20).
We're opening into an all-encompassing new expression of Pisces over the next 28 days - an expression that will carry us successfully into the astrological Aquarian era. We've been putting these "new-era Pisces" themes into practise for quite some time now, but this is final exam time.
Communication planet Mercury is closing in on a conjunction to wounded healer Chiron in Pisces on March 24, and the wounded and wounding themes of the astrological Piscean era are very much on our minds. Under the influence of this aspect, our troubles may seem more overwhelming than usual. Our damage may seem more unmanageable than usual. But take heart. We pretty much all feel this way at the moment.
If Pisces teaches us anything, it's that individual struggles are actually shared struggles. Individual problems almost always connect to a common root, shared by many through time and space, and we certainly share many very large issues amongst us on Planet Earth at the moment.
(The ongoing nuclear meltdowns at Fukushima, Japan and the oil/Corexit contamination of the Gulf of Mexico are two of the larger open Chiron in Pisces wounds, pertaining to the oceans (Pisces)).
The Mercury-Chiron aspect is past exact as most of us wake up on Tuesday (7:15 a.m. CST), though the themes will be colouring our experiences for the rest of the week.
