Pisces new moon, a breath of fresh air.
But also the collection of everything that has ever come before it.
The beginning of the last piece of a zodiac cycle, embodying every particle of experience.
Yet a new, grounded commitment to your mystical self or spiritual practice.
Seeing between the lines, into and through, all patterns and shapes previously hidden from sight.
A reconnection. A recollection. A dissolution.
New feelings. An awakening, and a rebuild.
You can see it all now.
Lead with your heart.
New Moon Pisces at 01° 22’
True to Astrological form, this New Moon couldn’t be arriving at a more opportune time. I know Pisces is the end… but let’s refresh our Astrological education with some beginning concepts.
When we have the annual New Moon in a sign, it’s the collective’s opportunity to imagine new ideas and skills that connect us to the energy of the sign. So for the New Moon in Pisces we are asked to take a brand new vision to the final sign. This is opportune because for the first time since 1993, Saturn will re-enter Pisces in two weeks until May 2025. So before the planet of mastery enters Pisces, we have this New Moon to meaningfully envision, “Who do I want to be? What do I want to do? And what do I want to have? Who do I want to be connected to?”
What I learn every single day as an Astrologer and through my most meaningful relationships is that we really are spiritual beings having a human experience. Which is why A Course in Miracles teaches us that enlightenment begins as a shift from body identification to spirit identification. On the level of the body, we have helpful markers for identity that are necessary. On the level of the body, we have identity markers that are not sufficient in explaining the Self with a capitol ‘S’. Lesson 199 of the workbook of A Course in Miracles says, “I am not a body. I am free…Freedom must be impossible as long as you perceive a body as yourself.
The body is a limit.” Of course we’ll always want to prioritize embodiment; listen to the body’s wisdom, cherish and heal our bodies. And we’ll want to remember on the highest level of identity, the body is a limit. The body is necessary but it’s not sufficient. We are spiritual beings having a human experience. What this could inspire you to think about under the New Moon in Pisces is - who would you be, what would you do, what would you have and who would you be connected to if you lived from the premise that you’re spirit? Would you be more loving? More generous? Forgiving? Compassionate?
How would you perceive the present moment and the behaviour of others if you believed that they like you are spiritual beings having a human experience? If we’re to believe in the Aries-Pisces evolution of the soul, perhaps Pisces is last because the assignment is the hardest. Which is why I’m looking forward to Saturn entering Pisces and giving the collective the discipline necessary to apply these ideas where they’re the hardest because that’s where they’re the most necessary.
On the same day as the New Moon, Mars in Gemini forms a trine to Mercury in Aquarius giving us a bit more curiosity, levity, and critical thinking around these advanced ideas. It’s just the right amount of air for these deep waters. Additionally, Venus enters Aries until March 16th resetting our romantic and intimate relationships with more passion and aliveness. Dare I write we have much to look forward to, so this New Moon in the last sign will get us on the right footing where we need it.
Completion, Surrender, Healing & Spiritual Support
It’s safe to let go, Aries. The New Moon in Pisces lights up your sector of closure, completion, forgiveness, and even apology. If there’s a very tough conversation you’ve been avoiding and you know you need to have it to make amends and begin again, this is the New Moon to do it. You’ll be amazed at what happens next when you turn towards these healing conversations.
Friendship, Activism, Collaborations & Shared Humanity
We are a social species, Taurus! The New Moon in Pisces inspires you to think about how to show up for your friends with mutuality and empathy. And all the ways they hopefully show up for you. If they’ve been a bit out to lunch, check in on them and ask for what you want to see. Vulnerable, I know - but we can’t get made at others for not doing what we haven’t asked for.
Career, Leadership, Integrity & Discipline
Rise and shine, Gemini! The New Moon in Pisces wants your intentions on your career. Think about how your creative skills and spiritual practice coincide to create a two-fold approach that can help you professionally. Especially in the realms of leadership opportunities and self-employment adventures. These dreams came from a higher source and so it has the power to accomplish them!
Wisdom, Publishing, Discovery & Higher Education
Bon voyage, Cancer! The New Moon in Pisces wants you to expand your thinking - which will inevitably change your behaviour! - through education and travel. Is there a country or campus you’ve been hoping to explore? Now’s the time to do it! Additionally, if there’s key wisdom you’ve developed over the last six months, now’s also the time to start applying it for big success.
Intimacy, Empathy, Sexuality & Transformation
Own the wanting, Leo! The New Moon in Pisces wants your intentions on intimacy, desire, and transformation. You’re like a cat in heat recently and this eroticism is a powerful change agent. Get curious about how you can more accurately and behaviorally live into your desires. Tell the truths about yourself, what you want, how you want to touch and be touched for powerful results.
Romance, Boundaries, Partnerships & Trust
Connection needs contrast, Virgo! The New Moon in Pisces wants your intentions on the law of opposites in relationships. They’re not you. You’re not them. Your strengths clash agains their challenges. Their proclivities clash against your vulnerabilities. That’s relating! So leverage your strengths with theirs and see relating like a paradox that needs managing not a problem that needs to be solved.
Habits, Systems, Wellbeing & Routine
Have you tried mindfulness, Libra? The New Moon in Pisces wants you to take a small step towards a more spiritual routine that helps you cultivate more loving awareness and mindfulness. You’re a sign that values momentum which is a strength. Though this New Moon wants you to equally value balancing spaciousness, contemplation before action, and calm.
Self-Disclosure, Charisma, Creativity & Lovability
Share what’s on your heart, Scorpio! The New Moon in Pisces helps you practice more courage. By telling people who genuinely need to hear it the substantial information about your hopes, dreams, fears, and desires. I know it’s messy and scary but you’ll need to pay in order to play. It’s time to be even braver and more transparent with the people in your life!
Vulnerability, Home, Family & Emotional Agility
Happy Homecoming, Sag! The New Moon in Pisces wants your intentions on “home”. Think about the contexts that provide you with the greatest contexts for emotional safety. Think about how you want to feel with the people and places that remind you of home. Then listen very carefully to where the Universe directs you in the coming weeks to make it happen.
Curiosity, Observation, Dialogue & Active Listening
Read between the lines, Cap! The New Moon in Pisces wants you to honour your strengths of clear communication AND work on developing more fluency in nonverbal communication. Which means you might need to get more uncomfortable by simply asking about changes in tone, energy, and body language. Then making the implicit a little more explicit for clarity’s sake.
Finances, Security, Clarity of Values & Pleasure
What does “Security” mean to you, Aquarius? The New Moon in Pisces wants your intentions on safety. From clarifying and committing to your values in ways that help you practice what you preach and teach. To naming your contexts for financial sufficiency and what kind of intentions you have to generate a context that helps you live into more financial freedom.
