A new moon teaches gradualness and deliberation and how one gives birth to oneself slowly. Patience with small details makes perfect a large work, like the universe. ~Rumi
Perhaps in the mayhem of this week’s 3.3.3 portal, today’s Dark/New Moon in Pisces and now Mercury Retrograde, we can find a bit of calm at the center of the storm.
Mercury Retrograde has been playing tricks on me, and while I’ve been busy cursing all kinds of tech issues and fallen into an argument with my parnter, I am reminded once more that Mercury calls me towards presence and awareness.
It calls for getting back to basics, like reminding myself that I do not need to react to everything around me, I can simply observe. Of course I am well familiar with this tenet, and yet… I relearn it daily.
Knowing something doesn’t mean we’re practicing it. That is Luna’s and Mercury’s call to action for us this week.

This week has been a time of immense change with Venus, Chiron, and Uranus shifting into a new sign. The last sign of the zodiac at the last degree, 29, stations in Mercury and is rolling back into a retrograde. The new moon in Pisces begins in the middle degree, 15, which is conjunct Neptune at 16 degrees. Did you also catch 03/03/2019, the opening of the portal to all this energy? Let’s break down the astrological weather.
The phrase I use to summarize the entirety of this shift is “Take thy Medicine and Tell your Truth”.
It is a time we all feel very tender, open, self-conscious and vulnerable. It is a time you cannot get away from hiding feelings, doubts, and lies. You are renewing and restructuring your thought patterns, place in the world, vibration, and health. The 29th degree of Pisces is symbolized as a book of healing mantras.
Thus, allow all that you speak and all that you think to be a divine prayer of healing and radiant aliveness.
A new era is beginning in the macro lens of culture and politics; how humans are treated, economical structures, and how the Earth is treated. The world is shifting and restructuring as we ourselves are being restructured. The stars have given us this sacred boon of a new moon and mercury retrograde. You have 6 weeks to consider, meditate, contemplate, and identify who you are becoming and how you arerelating to the world. The actions you take today will define your future. Trust the movement of time.
What do I mean by Take Thy Medicine? Again, this new moon and Mercury retrograde combo shows everyone where they are wounded. The self-doubt, fear, and comparison will be triggered by what others say and how they say it; showing us lovingly where we have neglected ourselves. By “take thy medicine”, it is the acknowledgement that only we can walk the journey to heal our wounds and nourish our soul. Healers and readers are merely potent facilitators, connector, and guides.
It is up to you to seek help when necessary and have the bravery to face the wound with compassion, integrity, and gentleness rather than ruminating and getting stuck into shame and regret. You become what you focus on. Tell your Truth. Another word for vulnerability is simply open-heartedness. As new moon gives you a time to shed, the Mercury Retrograde gives you a special time to slow down the mind and dissolve what is not serving the higher self.
The transition of Venus into Aquarius gives rise for connection with others we usually don’t consider befriending. If you listen, they may have a gem of wisdom to share that you have been seeking. Step out of your comfort zone.
The portal has opened to envision what you wish to become this year. The heavy Neptunian presence will open you up to possibility and potential as you stay grounded in your health. Unlike most Mercury Retrogrades, this one welcomes in new opportunities. Just make sure to read the fine print! Allow yourself to surrender into the new version of you that accomplishes your goals. Transmute the raw energy of your vision into form, for that is the magic of Pisces.
Spend this new moon dancing to music that makes you believe in yourself and the world. Hire a tarot reader or astrologer, as this is not the time to sift through all the answers on one’s own. If you are a tarot reader, it is likely the messages will get jumbled if reading for yourself. Pay special attention to signs and synchronicities. Anoint yourself with jasmine oil, diffuse lime and sage. Enjoy the blessing that it is to be embodied!
May this information illuminate your consciousness and your place on this Earth. ~Love, TulaFae
