New Moon in Pisces: March 13, 2021
March 13 brings a New Moon in Pisces at 5:21 a.m. Eastern US time. My March Forecast noted:
Pisces is the sign of the mystic. We can use this month’s reset to reaffirm our individual place within the bigger picture. As the poet Kabir said, “All know that the drop merges into the ocean, but few know that the ocean merges into the drop.” This New Moon conjuncts the Sun, Venus and Neptune, a heartfelt portal to bring dreams and fantasies to life.
In addition, the New Moon at 23 Pisces also conjuncts asteroid Iris at 20 Pisces and the Trans-Neptunian Object (TNO) Borasisi at 25 Pisces. In conjunction with Neptune at 20 Pisces, this cluster suggests a potential for revelations about deception. Of the major planets, Neptune rules the collective unconscious, dreams and higher spirituality, but also addictions, delusions and deception. Iris and Borasisi also deal with illusions and delusions — either their revelation or willful continuation. I don’t usually pay attention to these objects, but they caught my eye when I viewed a more detailed ephemeris.
Iris is Goddess of the Rainbow, a bringer of messages. According to http://darkstarastrology.com:
Like Mercury, Iris bridges two worlds, carries the Caduceus, and connects to the underworld. Iris is the marriage of water with air, since her father was a marine god and her mother a cloud nymph, she could travel through air and water with ease and is depicted with wings. …
Asteroid Iris astrologically shows up liars through the element of water. This could be through cleansing, tears that well up out of nowhere or even alcohol. Iris is not really the one who punishes, that would be Jupiter’s and Juno’s job, but she is the goddess of revelation. … In ones chart, Iris will show where you cannot succeed in lying.
According to http://alexasteroidastrology.com :
Borasisi is the name of the solar creation deity, also an actual sun of the fictional world, which forms the basis of a religious cult in Kurt Vonnegut’s 1963 novel “Cat’s Cradle.” The religion is a conscious collection of lies told to oneself in order to be happy, beliefs purposely adhered to although they are understood to be falsehoods. The themes of the book revolve around lies told in the name of religion, and the scientific quest for knowledge which threatens religious faith. The name Borasisi was given to a TNO, or Trans-Neptunian Object, in the Kuiper Belt region of the solar system, near Pluto.
Astrologically, Borasisi represents deception of all types, though especially those perpetrated by or in the name of religion. It relates to illusion and delusion, particularly conscious self-delusion, as well as the dangers of technological excess.
At the time of the New Moon, the Sun and Moon integrate light and dark, rational and intuitive — right in the middle of this cluster. If we lean into Venus as the Goddess of Love and Neptune’s expression of Higher Love, this gateway offers a huge opportunity for breaking through illusions and speaking the Truth in Love.
Asteroid Isis at 24 Pisces adds to the potential for healing through truth and integration. Isis is the Goddess of Motherhood and Healing. She gathers together all the pieces of her dead husband Osiris and brings him back to life in a different form. She represents powerful regeneration, Divine Feminine, Sacred Wisdom and Mystery.
How this potent conjunction from 19-25 Pisces plays out will depend on how consciously we interact with the energies. In a world that feels increasingly surreal, revelations could come, yet people still refuse to see that the Emperor has no clothes.
On the other hand, we can each pray for discernment. Open ourselves to seeing, speaking and hearing the Truth in Love. Allow ourselves to receive the dreamy New Moon energies and engage them in a healing, regenerative way.
As the storm clears, a rainbow appears.
