Welcome to the new moon in Pisces, which occurs on March 13, 2021. We have the beginning of a new way of being with this new moon. A way of being that is sync with the energies of the universe, this involves the surrender of our ego and rational mind, and a willingness to be in flow with the energies arriving on our planet.
I mention in the broadcast that these energies will continue to arrive in waves over the next three years. Preparing us bit by bit for truly living in the age of Aquarius. In 2023 we will have another massive shift as Pluto enters into Aquarius and stays there for 20 years! Pluto is known for transformation, as in death of old ways and rebirth of new ways. We get a sense of what that might mean beginning with this new moon.
In conjunction with the new moon in Pisces, we have the Goddess Amphitrite. I discuss in the broadcast her myth and legend and how she was so much more that what Greek and Roman myths say about her. Her origins can be found in Africa and her worship as a solo goddess existed far before the was depicted a consort and wife of Poseidon.
What's important for the purposes of our expansion today is that we allow her to remind us how to be in flow. Surrender of control, release of fear, and willingness to let go of familiar ad habitual ways of doing and being. These are also in sync with the energies of Pisces.
I discuss the patriarchal myth of Poseidon snatching Amphitrite against her will and taking her off to marry her and offer a wider lens to view this goddess and experience her primordial energies. Below are two Roman and Greek depictions of Amphitrite.

To more broadly experience her magic, we are invited to dive into the depths of the ocean. Even in Greek and Roman times she was depicted to live in a cave at the bottom of the sea, where those who wished to gain her help could go to meet her and receive help and guidance. We do just that in our mediation for this new moon.
Finally, I mentioned the role of Pluto in creating the Solar Flares that come from our Sun. As we prepare for 2023 and Pluto's entry into Aquarius, we will likely see and experience many more solar flares than in the past. I discuss solar cycles and solar flares in the broadcast, but want to offer a little more information on them below for you.
According to the Farmer's Almanac, Solar Cycle 25 began in December 2019 and is expected to peak in 2025, according to the Solar Cycle 25 Prediction Panel, an international group of experts co-sponsored by NASA and NOAA.
Specifically, December 2019 was the “solar minimum” or period of least solar activity in the 11-year solar cycle of the Sun.
"In direct contradiction to the official forecast, a team of scientists led by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) is predicting that the Sunspot Cycle that started this fall could be one of the strongest since record-keeping began. In a new article published in Solar Physics, the research team predicts that Sunspot Cycle 25 will peak with a maximum sunspot number somewhere between approximately 210 and 260, which would put the new cycle in the company of the top few ever observed." (excerpt from sciencedaily.com You can read the rest of the article here.)
Finally it is interesting to consider that scientists still do not know how to predict solar flares and solar cycles. Yet astrologers know that the activity of outer planets (Neptune, Uranus and Pluto) have an effect on solar flares. As it is when these planets are actively beaming information from the universe to our Sun (so that our sun and send this information to the inner planets) is when there are solar flares. As if the Sun getting excited about by activity of receiving new energetic information and sending it out!
