Dreams, Creativity and Empathy
NEW MOON in PISCES
20th February 2023
When we think of goals, we may think of New Year's resolutions. But there is something big that happens every month that not many people seem to notice: the New Moon cycle — where we're setting our intentions for the next months. And when the New Moon is located in Pisces, we're letting ourselves dream big. It's the first day of the lunar calendar so the energy is fresh, as the sun and moon are conjunct, initiating a new gestation period. This influences us to start envisioning what we’re trying to accomplish. Nevertheless, Pisces is not the most active sign for the moon, and even though we’re encouraged to be open-minded and imaginative, we’re probably not getting too busy under this New Moon. In fact, New Moons are known to be times of rest and reflection. Additionally, we will also be feeling extra romantic and sensitive to the energies around us, so we might want to find ways to express ourselves creatively.
Key qualities: -
● The symbol for Pisces is two fish that swim in different directions, used as a representation of the constant division of this sign’s focus between fantasy and reality. As the final sign of the zodiac wheel, Pisces is known to be the one who has integrated all of life’s lessons, so it is also closely related to the concept of Yin-Yang.
● Pisces is a mutable sign, so during this lunation, our thoughts and feelings might go through a lot of movement and change. Mutable signs are highly adaptable, which is crucial during times of transition.
● Pisces is also a water sign, which means we’ll definitely be in touch with our feelings as long as the moon is transiting this sign. Water signs are also highly creative and constantly in tune with the collective.
● This particular New Moon will be conjunct Saturn by a close degree. Saturn brings responsibilities and seriousness, so we might feel a bit reticent when it comes to opening up emotionally. This will give an uncomfortable tinge to the day, taking into account Pisces’ overflowing need to connect.
The freedom to manifest
The New Moon in Pisces is gorgeous, full of dreams and beautiful fantasies. On this day, and throughout Pisces season in general, you'll be able to see things through the eyes of an artist and visionary. The energy of Pisces is accepting, compassionate, and doesn’t really see limits to life’s possibilities. With this in mind, we should avoid trying to be too logical, as it’s not too often that we’re presented with a chance to let our dreams roam freely.
In order to live the life we want, we usually have to take a leap of faith. And no matter how big a change we want to bring to our reality, under a Pisces New Moon we are able to set in motion the powerful magic of manifestation. Believing in yourself and your potential is one of the hardest things to do, and what this day brings is the compassion and hope necessary to accomplish this.
Creativity as an emotional outlet
Under the Piscean influence, our minds tend to be more permeable to our surroundings. This is a great time for creative endeavors, especially writing and music because you'll be able to tap into your emotions and write about what's really important to you and to the collective (rather than just trying to make something others will like). You'll have an intense emotional connection to what you're doing as well, so whatever you create now will also serve as a way to deal with any past hurt and turn it into something positive.
Even though we might only want to use this Moon to fantasize about our dream life, that is not all there is to this lunation, which is happening close to Saturn. Being in contact with this serious and pragmatic planet, the New Moon in Pisces is also an opportunity to have tough conversations with ourselves and others.
When we think about Pisces, one of the first words that come to mind is empathy, and this is very important to make the most of the New Moon's energy. When we are able to
put ourselves in the shoes of others, resolving any pending issues becomes easier. Today we might want to connect with others and work through our obstacles.
Empathy is the foundation of kindness, and the New Moon in Pisces will allow us to turn over a new leaf and start a new chapter in which we can take new approaches to our relationships with others, but mostly with our spiritual selves.
A new beginning in love
The water sign of Pisces has a natural attachment to romantic things This will be intensified during the New Moon because Venus, the planet of love, will be conjunct Neptune in the last degrees of Pisces. Neptune puts rose-coloured glasses and fantasy on everything it touches. Under the sway of these two romantic planets, you might feel the need to share your thoughts on love and relationships and dream about making a deeper connection with another person through physical or emotional intimacy.
Now, what can you do to make the most of this lovely energy? Plan a romantic date night with your partner! You’ll find that even if things have been difficult lately, this day will feel like a beautiful clean slate for your relationship. If you're single, you can use this New Moon to think about what your dream relationship would look like, if you’re looking for one. Otherwise, you can just have a date with yourself, and do all those things that make you feel pampered and safe.
In any case, the Pisces New Moon will surely bring many special opportunities for all those who dare to dream big.
