4/1/2022 "Living in the Dream"
The New Moon on April 1 @ 2:24 am (EST) will be in Revati Nakshatra and the Zodiac Sign of Pisces. Ruling energies are Mercury, and Pushan, the Divine Shepherd
Our New Moon occurs in Revati, "The Wealthy Star," and is the last Nakshatra of the 27 Moon Mansions. An ending prior to a beginning, or is the actual act of beginning something the cause for something to end? It's hard to tell as the line between one and the other usually becomes blurred.
This Moon Mansion is placed entirely in Pisces, a symbol of fishes that swim in opposite directions yet are bound by a single cord. Pisces, the last sign of the zodiac wheel, is where all the toxins of life reside and an opportunity. Here, you take the risk of jumping back into the toxic waters of material life, or you swim in the other direction towards spiritual liberation. Since a single cord binds the two fishes, they must learn to coexist with one another if they are to survive the dream.
The New Moon energy has a dreamy, illusionary, empathic quality that may make you feel like wanting to get lost in a dream, drifting off into other realms. Yet, the other quality is focused, disciplined, and doing with no task left undone.
The entire chart for this New Moon is full of these opposing qualities that reinforce Pisces energy's push/pull effect. And, with Mercury in conjunction with the Sun and Moon, you may find yourself overwhelmed, bewildered, and going mad-hatter, asking the question, "How can I possibly live in two separate worlds inside the dream, peacefully?"
Solidifying this push/pull effect are two separate conjunctions:
1) Saturn, Mars, and Venus.
2) Jupiter and Neptune.
Spring has sprung, and you're following your dreams. The conjunction of Saturn, Mars, and Venus energy will enforce that it's going to take some time, creativity, discipline, and focus. Mars energy cannot stand to take its time with anything, and Venus gets lost in her creation. However, with Saturn's discipline, if heeded, will get all things done right and at the right time.
The Jupiter and Neptune conjunction will be pulling at your heartstrings, dreaming of the nostalgic good old days. But were they? Careful of the illusions that may present themselves, as everything was not as it seemed. The higher side of this energy can expand your spiritual pursuits and dreams.
Key Themes of this New Moon:
Dream a little Dream
Find a balance between your dreams and reality
Take your time with everything
Take the rose-colored glasses off and see things as they are
Begin something to end something
