Once again, the new Moon falls at the final degrees of the Sun’s sign, in this case Taurus. It illustrates the saying: ‘In the end is the beginning; in the beginning is the end. ‘ Moon and Sun come together just before the Sun leaves Taurus, and so offers each of us the opportunity to wrap up old projects, and concerns and to prepare for new perspectives. Taurus is the world in slow motion as, here in New England, we watch the unfurling of green life all around us!

When I write about a new Moon, I am always in the dark of the old Moon. And instead of the high energy of the full Moon, we have to wait for several days to see the proof of a new birth in the sky as she sets at sundown.
An Invisible Moon Casts her Shadow!
This Friday, March 20, take some time to slow down and listen, to feel energy unfold in a beautiful series of earth and sky events. These Sun and Moon markers of a cosmic dance are experiences we share over the entire earth. If we focus on them they have the power to unite us, worldwide, in wonder and gratitude for their beauty and synchronicity. And this day is full of wondrous delights.
Here is the text of the speech given by OBOD's representative Keith Southall, when he attended the Fifth International Conference & Gathering of Elders in Mysore last month.
Thursday’s full Moon in Virgo has grown from the Aquarius new Moon on February 18. The Sun at that moment was still minutes away from Pisces. So instead of learning about Pisces from inception, the Moon has grown from an Aquarian seed, to arrive at a perfect opposition to the Piscean Sun. She will experience her ‘newness’ in that sign at the next new Moon (March 20) as the Sun is about to depart from Pisces. This will take place moments from the Spring Equinox during a solar eclipse.
