Ah, Pisces. You bring the astrological wheel of the year to a close.
You bring us to the depths of our yearning to be with the Source of All that is… the infinite, etcetera.
You want to rejoice. You want to relax and regroup. You want to dream so long into the night that it’s afternoon.
You want to transform, transmute and allow yourself to be the droplet in an ocean of other droplets.
The Pisces New Moon is the last new Moon of the astrological year. The new astrological year starts on the Equinox March 20th when the Sun enters Aries.
The Pisces new Moon is a time of completion.
Pisces holds the energy and experience of all 12 signs of the zodiac. It is a mutable water sign that invites us to review the 12 month-long journey around the wheel of the year.
Dreams hopes wishes and desires are all Neptune’s domain.
It’s a good time to review how you attracted that which you dreamed up and desired this past year.
Some dreams may remain in the heart and mind.
Are they still desires you want to surface as reality?
Would you prefer to let them be pulled back out to sea to make space for new wishes?
Disillusionment is part of the Pisces spectrum. Allow time for disappointment if you like, but the disillusioned state does highlight that which may not warrant further attention.
Pisces can get moodily drawn down into the weeds. It is all grist for the mill to rest and retreat. New Moons are great for retreating and resting. The Pisces new Moon 🌚 is one which is a huge mental, spiritual, emotional “Phew!”
Allowing the feeling of the past year’s imagined and actual experiences and sensations to wash over us is one way to honor the event.
We may experience a a variety of emotions as we do.
Luckily, the mutable nature of Pisces can flick its fishy tail and move to clear and sunny waters when it has reviewed, reminisced and released enough.
Concurrent with the new Moon, Mars enters Capricorn where it will remain until mid May. We desire to give action to new endeavors. We want to give form and definition in our lives and have authority over our actions.
Jupiter turned retrograde on March 8th at 23 degrees Scorpio, and will continue retrograde motion until July 10.
This is a time of inner transformation and expansion. It is a time to deepen the relationship with our inner voice, the intuitive voice.
Mercury begins its retrograde cycle on March 22 at 17 Aries. This is a three week event that occurs four times a year. Not a cause for concern. I typically give myself more time to get where I am going and allow myself more time for reflection and review. We can take time to reviewing how instinctually think and behave and see how we feel about our instinctual reactions.
More than anything, Pisces wants to merge with all that is. It wants to be the drop amongst all the other drops in the ocean. It wants to feel at one with All That IS sometimes human existence can feel wan and pale in comparison.
At the same time, it fears dissolution and the idea that its individuality could be lost in the process. As one wizard famously wrote, it fears being the “hole in the donut.”
And we are here to have a human experience. The time we are here can sometimes feel long. But it is really a drop in the bucket in relation to eternity.
So, no pressure, with the feeling of floating and staring up at a sunny or starry sky, how do you want to feel? What do you feel like doing today, as a human? What emotional radiation would you like to emanate? How can you feel good in the skin you are wearing for this blip in time?
Relax, float downstream, no struggle, just being and emanating pure You.
That’s the Starting and the Ending of it. And the In Between that is the Life
The Pisces fish swim in two different directions- one not seeing the other. We could muse on what two things those fish are swimming toward – companionship/solitude, merging with Source/individuality, the mysterious depths/the sunshiney surface. As you soak in your salty sea/bath/pool/tears the Pisces new Moon, ponder a bit on the polarities that have been present this astrological year for you.
This reflection may lead to revelation and refinement of dreams wishes hopes and desires the tide will deliver in the new year to come.
Lots of love, Lydia
