Pisces Season And New Moon In Pisces
Pisces. The ocean. Breakers tumbling over smooth pebbles. Mermaids with green seaweed in their hair. Galleons lying in murky depths filled with treasure. With the sun now in Pisces, we're in touch with our feelings but also more deeply aware, of our relationship to the whole.
What hurts our Mother, hurts us. What happens to one, happens to us all.
Our heartstrings are tugged and pulled. We are touched and shaped by stories. We are moved by the numinous.
Music fills our hearts. Words dance in our heads. Our fingertips spark with magic. The muse hovers nearby waiting for the invitation to fill our days with creative magic.
Mystery. Grace. Magic. These are Piscean themes.
Pisceans are intuitive, psychic and spiritual (even those Pisceans who deny their eternal spirit selves accept the existence of something bigger and more expansive, thanks to both Neptune and Jupiter, their planetary rulers).
They’re curious and compassionate and like talking about their feelings and beliefs.
They want to feel understood even though they know it’s not really possible to ever know an ocean completely - or for that matter, another human being. There is - after all - always something new and exciting to entice out from under a rock or cave.
Pisceans live for revelations. As such we can all expect a few of those this month.
“I want to work in revelations, not just spin silly tales for money. I want to fish as deep down as possible into my own subconscious in the belief that once that far down, everyone will understand because they are the same that far down.” - Jack Kerouac (Pisces)
The danger this season lies in falling for our own illusions and projections.
Consider the many ways we shift blame.
And the undesirable emotions we project onto others.
Piscean energy can also blur the lines between fantasy and reality.
What is real and what is a figment of my imagination?
Watch for escapist tendencies like daydreaming and binge-watching Netflix and other more harmful pastimes and addictions.
New Moon in Pisces 23 February
Tomorrow’s New Moon is a call to fill up on compassion and empathy and to connect with both Spirit and our inner knowing.
Self-reflection exercise for all signs:
Have you been paying attention to your intuition? If not, why not? How can you start trusting your inner knowingness?
What does spirituality mean to you?
How do you honour the divine in you?
Wish-crafting and intention-setting
Let your answers and reflections on the following questions or quotes guide your intentions.
Do you dare to be yourself however frightening that may be? What do you want to be remembered for?
Albert Einstein recommended we pursue value over success. What does this mean to you? How do you become a person of value?
How can you use words to heal yourself and bring healing to others? Who delights you and brings sweetness into your life? How can you further nurture these relationships?
"Even if you cannot change all the people around you, you can change the people you choose to be around. Life is too short to waste your time on people who don’t respect, appreciate, and value you. Spend your life with people who make you smile, laugh, and feel loved." — Roy T. Bennett (The Light in the Heart)
Who makes you smile? What lights you up? What and who brings you joy?
How can you express yourself more creatively? What has held you back until now? Who inspires you? What can you learn from this person/these people?
"If you obey all of the rules, you miss all of the fun." - Katherine Hepburn
How can you add more fun to your life? How can you express yourself creatively?
What does excellence look and feel like to you? What activities make you feel “useful”?
What does intimacy mean and feel like to you?
Here is one response:
"People think that intimacy is about sex. But intimacy is about truth. When you realize you can tell someone your truth, when you can show yourself to them, when you stand in front of them bare and their response is 'you're safe with me'- that's intimacy." — Taylor Jenkins Reid (The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo)
Where have you always wanted to go? What destinations beckon? What would you like to study or learn more about?
David Whyte writes: “A true vocation calls us out beyond ourselves; breaks our heart in the process and then humbles, simplifies and enlightens us about the hidden, core nature of the work that enticed us in the first place.”
Are you doing what you were born to do?
"Don't only strive to be the change you want to see in the world, but also help all those around you see the world through commonalities of the heart so that they would want to change with you." - Suzy Kassem
How well do you work with others? How do you engage and contribute to your community?
