March 2, 2022 ~ New Moon in Pisces

My March 2022 Forecast shared:

March 2 New Moon in Pisces, 12:34 p.m. Eastern time. This New Moon in the most spiritual sign of the zodiac occurs during the quadruple whammy, destiny level re-alignment involving Venus, Mars, and Pluto in Capricorn and the North Node in Taurus. In addition to those powerful players, the Sun, Moon and Jupiter conjunct in Pisces. Jupiter co-rules Pisces with Neptune, and his regal presence expands, uplifts and inspires. Our capacity for faith soars. This is the final New Moon before we begin a new cycle. Do we have the willpower to change? Will we claim our own personal Excalibur and fight the good fight? This is primarily a spiritual battle: “What is impossible with man is possible with God.”

Typical of the more negative expression of Pisces, we’re currently in a miasma of illusions, evocative of Arthurian legend. Never mind the Mists of Avalon: whether through magic, media, or misdirection, the fog of this war is thicker than pea soup.

And yet …

… the higher expression of Pisces opens us to mystical experiences, alternate realities, and the power of prayer.

Ask for clarity to slice through swirling lies, illusions and delusions. Like sorcery, so much of what we’re shown is not real. At least — it isn’t real yet. With enough attention and fear energy, a shimmery thought form acquires more matter. This New Moon reminds us to use willpower not to fall victim to the spell.

According to Dane Rudhyar, the Sabian Symbol for this New Moon degree is:

PHASE 343 (PISCES 13°): AN ANCIENT SWORD, USED IN MANY BATTLES, IS DISPLAYED IN A MUSEUM.

KEYNOTE: Through the effectual use of his will a consecrated man can become a symbol of courage for all those who follow in his footsteps.

Will power is the ultimate spiritual weapon, and its undeviating use is the certification of individual worth. Wherever found, this symbol emphasizes the imperative need to make use of the will in meeting the basic challenges of the inner life as well as outer adversaries.

With this third symbol of the sixty-ninth sequence we see singled out and strongly emphasized the one power in man which is an assurance of victory in the contests generated by social (or occult) processes in which he has become an active part. The individual must use that WILL POWER, yet it is not really his own once he operates at a spiritual level. It is God’s will operating through his mind which focuses its thrusts. It is, occultly speaking, the power of the Brotherhood — the energy of the Whole operating through the one-pointed individual who has made this Whole aware of the need for its use in a particular situation.

I can’t think of a more appropriate symbol for these times. Clear away the cobwebs. Summon your courage and pull that sword out of its rock. Who are you to change the world? Who is any of us?

In terms of Tarot imagery, the collective is moving through the entire Suit of Swords from Ace to Ten. Swords represent the mental realm — both its power and weakness. Briefly:

Ace of Swords: The essence of the mental realm. Pure thought form. A great idea. Success. Focused will. Birth of a great child.

Two of Swords: A difficult choice. Blindfolded and stuck between two evils and a stormy sea. Pay attention to “the still, small voice.” You can succeed even in these difficult circumstances.

Three of Swords: Misery. Break up. End of a relationship — or end of the way we think about a relationship.

Four of Swords: Retreat. A need to rest and recharge. Retire from the world’s distractions so you can refocus on something better.

Five of Swords: Law of Attraction is in effect. If you get your thoughts focused in the right direction for you, outer reality shifts. It looks like you got a lucky break without “doing” anything, but looks deceive. By focusing your mind, you manifested (or can manifest) that “lucky break.”

Six of Swords: Safe passage. An invisible guide steers the raft. The shore is within sight.

Seven of Swords: Lies, deceit, but also discretion, subterfuge for a higher purpose. Keep your plans close to your vest. “To know, to will, to dare, to keep silent.

Eight of Swords: Blindfolded and unable to see your way forward. The mental realm is handicapped, but you can still feel your way forward by paying attention to your feet, to the physical and emotional realms. Comparable to the first trimester in pregnancy. Pay attention to cravings and aversions that protect the unseen, growing baby. When you can’t see your way forward, get back in touch with your instincts.

Nine of Swords: Awakening from the nightmare. Seeing horrors and then realizing these were illusions. You’ve been living through a bad dream. Unplugging from the Matrix.

Ten of Swords: “It’s always darkest before dawn.” “Things are even worse than you thought,” but also, “A new day dawns.” When we reach the Ten, we’ve already moved through the cycle of Swords. Old thoughts, filters, expectations, and attitudes fall away so that we can recognize and receive something fresh and new. Brighter days lie ahead.

Having reached a dead end, it’s time to face the rising Sun and reclaim our Ace of Swords:

Happy New Moon in Pisces. Blessed Be and be the blessing …

    Saw a meme recently, on UK author Elen Sentier’s Wye’s Woman FB page, with the Lady of the Lake and the sword she offered to Arthur, saying that perhaps having a strange woman in a lake offering a sword might be a better way to select a leader?
