This March 8th marks quite a few important events, two of them being astrological. The new moon happens tonight, and if you are living in Southeast Asian or Australia, you just may catch the solar eclipse!
New moons signify beginnings. It is the start of a new lunar cycle. This month’s new moon falls in Pisces, the sign of the dual fish. Pisces are one’s who achieve the balance of physical and spiritual worlds. Their symbol, the dual fish, represents their harmonious nature. This new moon is a good one to reflect on areas of your life that are out of balance, and how to restore this harmony with going forward into this new beginning.
The solar eclipse also offers this idea of balance. Tonight, the sun and moon share the sky. The sun is also in Pisces. The moon is associated with female energy, while the sun represents masculine energy. These forces merge tonight, showing the action of balance an harmony.
Coincidentally, it is International Women’s Day. Today, globally we recognize the political, social, cultural, and economical advancements of women. Back in ancient times, when much of the world still followed pagan beliefs, women we seen as powerful beings, with the ability to create life. It was a much more matriarchal society, where women had influence and their opinions were valued. With the shift of the patriarchal society, men became dominant, and women were seen as second class citizens. Now with this rising of women’s rights, we are starting to see the shift in power. It is a balance of equality, for women and for men.
There is balance all around us tonight, in the sky and on earth. Let’s rejoice and focus on these energies as they pave way towards a brighter, harmonious future.
