If you are doing sankulpa, try 48 hours after and not during void moon–these energies need to play out a bit.
And Angie? Sorry about all the Pisces.

“Mercury in Aquarius is just ingenious at solving problems. Sometimes all it takes is to look at a situation from another perspective. This may be key in navigating this week.” ~astrologybylauren.com
“The busy time leads into a stillness. There is a collective surrender in Pisces. This time before spring, before many animals become more active, before the plants send forth new shoots, before the ground is ready for sewing. In olden days when the community relied upon the Earth for sustenance more directly, Pisces marks the time of year when the collective community relied upon its efforts of the past year to ensure it has food and fuel through this time of scarcity. Hence, we refer to Pisces as the sign of karma, when we rely upon what we have done in the past, whether that is having stored enough food or developed positive relationships with those who have. There is an Astrological suggestion here that this is a time for ‘beyond the usual’ revelations and a revolutionary blow to established power structures. Humans have an opportunity to tune into a revelation from beyond.” ~webvic.com

Solar Eclipse: the light is on–the light is off–the light returns. ~L
“Watch for everything to fall into place on the February 26th New Moon Pisces eclipse. The eclipse, along with a Mars/Uranus conjunction (opposing Jupiter Rx) will fuse all the influences over the past few days in a bright flash. Endings and beginnings may be simultaneous, and Mars/Uranus/Jupiter adds urgency. A total reversal may spin you around and spit you out. After the dizziness subsides, welcome to your next chapter.” ~www.rubyslipper.ca
PISCES/AQUARIUS IS THE TRUTH THAT SETS THE CAPTIVE FREE ~L
“Events will happen quickly, and they will be the results of what’s been brewing for awhile (Mars/Pluto, Sun/South Node). The past and future could collide, but the future always takes precedence (especially with Uranus driving a New Moon). This eclipse will conjoin Neptune -the new possibilities could exceed your imagination, as long as you flush away the old stuff.” ~ rubyslipper.ca
“Should you feel the need to go turbo, focus first. Is your driving mechanism a hybrid of the purest points of your personage? In listening to the inspiring messages in the ethers, are you perfectly focused and tuned in on the cosmic dial? Remember, everyone endures the turbo sense of personal urgency (at this new moon annular solar eclipse ~L). It’s not just you. However, your highest priority is you, and how you interact with all those you meet claiming their personal you-ness.” ~philipsedgwick.com
“Satabhisha, which translates literally as “100 healers,” is in an area of the sky within the constellation of Aquarius. The purifying waters of Aquarius pour through these stars and into the deep cosmic ocean of the night known as the Milky Way. These miraculous waters create a portal through which descends a primordial healing power. Illness rooted in Satabhisha is often difficult to diagnose, however if the treatment is applied under its influence the remedy is highly effective.
The Hindu holiday of Maha Shivaratri—or “The great night of Lord Shiva”—falls prior to the eclipse, on the evening of February 24, 2017. On this night, the thin sliver of waning moon—the Shiva Moon—which he wears in his matted hair, will be seen rising before dawn.
In India, it is customary to stay up all night, fasting and singing mantras to Lord Shiva, who is known as the destroyer. Often depicted in a wild dance of destruction, Shiva is also seen as the consummate yogi seated quietly on a Himalayan mountainside, deep in contemplation.
Satabhisha is called the “veiling star” because of its powerful ability to cloak (and uncloak) the mysteries of consciousness. It is said that Lord Shiva burns through this veil of illusion – maya – when he opens his third eye, and that prayers and offerings to him have the power to alter the laws of destiny and break our karmic ties. By offering your prayers to Lord Shiva, and by repeating the mantra Om Namah Shivaya, you can accelerate the healing process sparked by this eclipse.” ~anandastrology.com
“This eclipse, like all others, will kick off a cycle of approximately six months of development, so show up for whatever emerges – and emerge it will! During the Eclipse, Mars will be sitting on top of strong-willed and explosive Uranus. This will totally change the expected vibe of a Pisces New Moon into a more edgy event. Watch out for battles to prove or maintain your independence; these aremore about pissing on your territory than expressing your needs. Embody your truth without shoving it down other’s throats, no matter how tempting it may be.
It’s not enough to know what you are; you need to know what you’re not, too. The 27th brings us our final kick in the fanny from the Red Planet as it sits opposite from expansive Jupiter. Jupiter is a gambler, but Mars hates to lose. The thing that Mars needs to get is that the only way to really lose is if you don’t learn. Growth happens through struggle and strife as often as it comes from falling in love or being healed by the cuteness of cats.”~lovelanyadoo.com

“Mercury (Sun’s messenger) enters Pisces on Saturday, joining the Sun in Pisces. This is our last week before the Lenten season (46 days) begins, starting with Mardi Gras next Tuesday. This is a week of festivals, a secret birthday celebration, preparations, a solar eclipse and a new moon.
Each sign has a specific purpose & task. The Pisces task is to “save the world.” Pisces is called the “Light of the World.” The Light of Pisces reveals the Light of Life itself, ending forever the darkness (ignorance, unkindness, criticism, judgment, etc.) of matter. All of Earth’s kingdoms absorb this “saving” Pisces light. During Pisces, and with Mercury in Pisces, humanity (World Servers and Saviors in potential) is informed of its sacred tasks – “to save ourselves by loving each other in order to survive, sustain, create and thrive in the new world.”
Sunday is Pisces new moon solar eclipse. All eclipses inform us that something has been completed and is disappearing so something more vibrant and useful can come forth. Solar eclipses tell us something deeply essential to our lives is over. The eclipse new moon occurs at 8 degrees Pisces. Where is that degree of Pisces in everyone’s astrology chart? That tells us what area of life is being affected by this new moon eclipse. The keynote for Pisces new moon is, “Go forth in matter, in order to experience (and later save) the world.”
If I had told you, more than a year ago when we began looking beyond duality toward the process encompassing it that our world was going to take a giant evolutionary step backward at the start of 2017, you would never have believed it. If I had told you that just as you were beginning to get comfortable with the idea of embracing a both/and vision of creation you would have to endure the most lopsided oscillation you had ever imagined, would it have made sense to you? If I asked you to run the most important exercise of wait-and-see, don’t-blink-first chicken while it felt like the world was unraveling, would you have bothered with me? With lunar yoga? With mindful meditation?
Of course you would have! You are a Yoganaut and your craft is built for rough seas and vast cosmic spaces!
This is the last Pisces new moon for 19 years. The new moon starts a new emotional cycle, but with it this time is a huge amount of ending/releasing because of its alignment with the South Node and it’s placement in Pisces, the last sign of the zodiac. This eclipse holds a potent triad of planets squaring Pluto: Uranus conjunct Mars opposite Jupiter. Pluto’s rotation and return (which completes in the chart of the USA in 2020) marks the end of a 250 year empire cycle. Any seduction, manipulation, control will dissolve in the truth that love is surrender and cooperation. (Belief is control, love is surrender.) We all come together to reveal one another to each other. We are all showing ourselves to ourselves through ourselves. No one is more god than any other.
The wound, the self-abandonment is going to lessen. It is really extreme right now, as is the empathy. Darkness is increasing after all, both through the new moon and the eclipse. In that, there is a supreme access to past patterns and shadow. Fully feel what you want to release. Make time and space for it, please, oh, please. I try not to issue maxims (no absolutes!), but it can really help to focus on what you want to let go of. That really is why it’s being amplified, it’s not to torture you. Remember this is hundreds and thousands of years of processing you are doing, that’s why it’s so super-sized and up in your grill. Be gentle with yourself, be kind to others or step away if you cannot. Everyone is beyond triggered and fighting battles we cannot perceive.
I seldom talk about raising vibration, but I want to make one suggestion: is it possible that we raise vibration by releasing attachment? I think this is true for me and why I am so challenged right now.
Hold the line with me and mind your heart,
