According the myth, Pandora opened the box she was told not to open – all the plagues, all the bad was released before she managed to close it again and so hope remained. It’s “hope” for something “better” that makes us moving forward, to take action and so on…. It’s hope that makes people run away from their homes and land, when there is threat like war, crime or other catastrophes occurring… it’s the hope that let’s us having children – if we have no hope and trust into the future, we won’t have any children (or projects or whatever)…. Now we need to trust into our own future – individually and collectively – we need to trust we can change, transform, evolve and birth a future worth living in….
This new Moon occurs in the constellation of Pisces (the late part) – therefore we on Earth in late Virgo (conjoining Spica of Virgo and Arcturus of Bootes). We’ll see 4 oppositions, forming an eight-pointed star (Octagram – “Star of Ishtar” or “Venus”), of which some of the Players will shift out to form a “star of David” (two intersecting Grand Trines) for the cycles/conjunctions of Mercury, Venus and Uranus, but about that another time. Note, after all these new Venus cycles, she continues to conjoin others and is part of that Octagram not only by name….
Venus with her heartful question – what do we love/value? Can we live according these values? Are they really strong enough or are we falling back into adapting what others tell us to be right or wrong? In early sid. Aries, she stands in between Andromeda in Chains and Cetus the monster and with the upward swimming fish, at the knot of the “bounded/connected” two fish – will we be able to free us (being our own hero/swim upwards) or will we accept the chains… A birthing-process is never easy – it includes pain (every Mother knows the physical part of that!!), doubt, fear, insecurity and so on – but ohh wow – how exciting and wonderful when we find the courage and trust to follow it through and receive the “newborn child”. Another Venus-theme arising out of the values is desire, which, if too externalized become “attachments”/chains, which in the end, may even bring one as far as to “dismiss” the own “inner values”…. Venus just “birthed” new cycles, and is about to “birth” more – with Uranus as well as Mercury – 2 just very new, two just about to happen with it’s “discerning”/wrapping up energies… It’s important to understand, that we’re All a part of the “monster”, the collective consciousness and we can’t change that collective or an individual other, just ourselves – with that, we help to change the collective and with that we help to transform the “monster” to become a wonderful being – but there is more to this “monster”-“angel” than one would maybe think of at first – it’s the relationship/value with/to our own past – are we trapped and repeat and repeat (and perceive it as a “monster”) or can we let go, simply integrate/lesson learned (transformed to an “angel”) the past as what it is and swim “above” it, not without it but transformed, giving space for new experiences with an open heart….

Mercury, the fast, logic mind – may pick those emotions up and start to discern – yes, no, maybe, perhaps – be aware and stop the loops before being caught up in them and see or better said, think logic and in clarity (ordered/organized) through the conscious thinking, the emotional soup will start to clear up to a wonderful crystal-clear mountain lake shining and reflecting the heavens in brilliance… lol, clear sea with colorful fishes and corals would work too 😉 …. more about Mercury: https://www.faempowerment.com/mercury
Adding to these pictures is the new-Moon energy, that might give us enough “insight”/ going within” to find the true feelings underneath the emotions – that’s part of what Pisces is about – to see “through” and gain clarity – and that’s on all levels…. Emotions are just a “layer” over the real feelings and can be used as a “cell phone” or “alarm system”….
Acknowledging, differencing these powers will help in the process of “birthing”, as activating the willpower and force of Mars in late Taurus, will form a foundation or plan on which we can build our way to “wish fulfillment” … Just be aware – whatever we do, whatever we use our will and “life force” for is based on a decision – once we’re acting, we’re usually not to stop, we therefore need to make sure we know (are conscious about – cause and effect) of what we’re about to create….

Opposing Mars is Juno (relationships) stands at the right shoulder of Ophiuchus. We may feel the “weight of the world” on our shoulder, which makes us react accordingly. The shoulder though, is the joint that makes our arm move – to do something, to act, to create physically – the shoulder connects that arm with the whole body. The realization that can be gained here, is that of the relationship between us and the world – that we’re part of it but neither alone nor responsible for anything other than us and our own creations – the mass of creations “shapes” the current state of “human consciousness” as a whole, same time, what we create for ourselves (including thoughts, belief system, values in general) is the basis/foundation of our own world and with this, the basis of our own creations… If we stop acting/willing, our creations remain a “wish” or “dream” and we live in a world physically created by others for us – we then “blame” those and define ourselves as “victims”.
Pallas – the “problem solver” - stands at the Urn of Aquarius. This area is about the use of resources for the greater good of All – resources we have plenty, the distribution of it though speaks another language. That can be anything – food, health, technology, knowledge, love – anything… as we have forgotten, how our very own biology works (we’re built based on the same laws as the Universe) and provides for us, we’re dependen
