When an astrologer studies the effects of any New Moon, the first thing to consider is whether there are any planets adding their own energy. This time the New Moon is directly connected to a Retrograde Mercury, which joins this Moon in the zodiac sign Pisces. This means most people will be starting off the period of the New Moon by moving backward – there are some things that were left undone during the last two weeks that will need attending to.
The good news is that there are two other planets connected with this New Moon – Mars and Uranus. These planets are in different signs, connected to the Moon with helpful angles, and will give support to your Solar house where the New Moon falls.
Considering the nature of these two planets and how they work together indicates that the support will be quick and timely. They usually work in tandem to help you change things for the better. These two planets can mean “a fight for freedom,” which can take many different forms – from changing things around to tossing them out of your life.
Because the New Moon is in the zodiac sign of Pisces, a sign of changes, will add to the effect. Pisces is symbolized by two fish, one swimming upstream and the other downstream. One fish is full of determination, while the other is going with the flow. You’ll find evidence of both during the next month, but how you react to the upstream/downstream, Mars/Uranus, Mercury Retrograde New Moon depends on the Solar house in which it falls. Please read on to find out how this Moon will affect you.
Pisces is your Solar 12th house of confidential matters, limitations and losses, the New Moon is likely to affect any of these areas of your life. Thanks to Mars in your Solar 10th, Aries, this is an excellent time for making plans to increase your income or status through private meetings, but keep them to yourself and your confidants. Also, there may be some new information regarding your career that could be quite favorable. Uranus in the Solar second is also helpful to you; sticking to your routines, no matter how boring they are, could turn out to be very lucky. Be careful about details and keep things like keys and wallets close to you at all times, because Mercury Retrograde could cause you to mislay or forget something, but anything lost will be swiftly found.
