Happy New Moon in Pisces! Lady Luna is quite happy in the sign of the Fish, illuminating our deeper feelings and emotions, and highlighting the compassionate and imaginative qualities this sign is known for. What’s even more special about Wednesday’s New Moon is that it is joined by Neptune, Pisces’ ruling planet. Neptune’s influence adds an extra dose of watery energy to the mix, encouraging us to swim deeply in it’s soulful waters.
This New Moon is an excellent time go within and commune with what lies beneath the surface of everyday reality. Meditative activities are especially potent now. The Pisces New Moon brings out our creative and artistic qualities as well, inspiring us to play in the realm of fantasy and imagination. Give yourself permission to write poetry, paint, play and listen to music. Whatever feeds your soul!
During this time, we also have the beginning of the Mercury Retrograde (through March 28th) also in Pisces, again calling us to go within and reflect on how we move (or swim!) through the world. The soulful combination of the Mercury Retrograde and New Moon in Pisces, can sooth and even bring healing to our daily tensions and stresses, as it offers a deeper perspective and new clarity. This magical period brings great meaning to the concept of being “in the world, but not of the world”. Something to ruminate on!
