The Pisces New Moon on March 8, 2016, is a Total Solar Eclipse that sends us on a magical mystery tour. Every New Moon is like a cosmic reset button that kicks off a new monthly cycle. But when the New Moon eclipses the Sun, the reboot is more sudden and more powerful. There is often an unexpected shift in the energy when a Solar Eclipse stirs the cosmic soup.
Watch this video about the Eclipse:
During this New Moon and Solar Eclipse, we are riding an emotional rollercoaster with fantasy-prone Neptune also activating our dreams, taskmaster Saturn pulling in the reins, and boisterous Jupiter making everything seem bigger and better than it actually is. It's nearly impossible for us to find stability with so many planets battling for center stage during this eclipse.
Nevertheless, there is a blessing hidden within the depths of this surreal Pisces Solar Eclipse's relationship to Jupiter. The real gifts of Pisces are sensitivity and compassion. Our willingness to step outside of our narrow perspective empowers us to grow emotionally and spiritually. But we don't have to fall victim to the consequences of ignoring boundaries as our dreams overflow into the real world. We can call on karmic Saturn to help us make responsible decisions. Anything is possible once we acknowledge our limits.

Don't fall victim to a false sense of urgency; move cautiously and consider all your options prior to focusing on any one path. Henry David Thoreau wrote, "The world is but a canvas to the imagination."
