A new moon occurs when when the transit Sun and Moon are in the exact same spot in the zodiac. It tends to signal a time of new opportunities, growth, and optimism.

March 11th 2013 New Moon in Pisces
A new moon occurs at 3:51PM ET at 21 degrees 24 minutes of Pisces. In Pisces, we feel more sensitive to other people, but not overly sensitive ourselves since it's a new moon. It's in a good way, a way where we feel good about ourselves and want to help other people feel good about themselves too, and that only makes us feel even better. We think more about the people who can't help themselves, and take a more proactive approach to helping them. We can let go more easily, deal with secrets, and be highly imaginative. Creativity runs high, and we're fond of the arts, especially music. This could be a good period for the music industry or a very popular musician. We could try to improve the state of our oceans, help marine life, or tackle making clean drinking water accessible to everyone. We want to make room and clear spaces in anticipation of the upcoming new moon in Aries, where it's all about action and getting things started. Now, we get things finished and cleared away. If you're a Pisces Sun, Moon, or late Pisces rising, you may feels the effects of this moon most.
March 27th 2013 Full Moon in Libra
A full moon occurs at 5:27AM ET at 6 degrees 52 minutes of Libra. In Libra, we're more emotional about injustices, feeling passionate about making sure everyone is being treated fairly. We try to see both sides of the situation, and become upset when that doesn't happen. We try to compromise, but may have a hard time setting aside egos. For some, a love relationship is elevated to a new level. For others, it comes to an end. This is especially true with this full moon because not only is it in Libra, the sign ruling committed relationships, but it's also opposite transit (moving) Venus in Aries, and Venus is the ruler of Libra. With this, we could be struggling to balance our independence and our commitments to others, trying to find that delicate balance. This full moon also opposes transit Uranus in Aries, and we're not as welcoming of unexpected surprises, feeling blindsided. We may try to make an impulsive change out of feeling restless, or fight against the changes that are made against our wishes. We must be more flexible with what comes. If you're a Libra Sun, Moon, or rising, you may feel the effects of this moon most.
