Your New Moon In Pisces Horoscope & Mantra, According To Your Zodiac Sign


Dare to dream. There is an incredibly healing and universally conscious new moon upon us and it will disappear into the sky on Sunday, Feb. 23 at 10:32 a.m. ET. Sitting in the transcendental sign of ethereal Pisces, multidimensional and boundless, this Neptune-ruled lunation brings forth vibrational energies with tremendous impact. Before we dissect the aspects of this otherworldly new moon, however, let’s take a closer look at the new moon phase along with the current Astro weather, because one cannot exist without the other. La Luna is a mystical luminary captivating us with her many phases and undeniable mystery. An ancient symbol of the divine feminine, it is she who controls the ocean tides and ultimately, puts our emotions into motion. The cycle of Mother Moon perfectly embodies that of birth, death, and reincarnation. It’s nearly identical to the cycle of the seed: It grows, it blooms and it dies. Once you tune into the lunar cycle, you are one step closer to activating your inner power.


During the new moon phase, the Moon sits between the Earth and the Sun; La Luna is not seen from Earth. As you may know, the new moon marks the beginning of the lunar cycle but more importantly, her lack of visibility is a representation of our spiritual renewal. It’s a lot simpler than you think: La Luna is renewing herself during this time, and so are you. Despite how eerie and intimidating her darkness can be, it denotes the start of something brand new. Just days into Jupiter’s dreamy sextile to Neptune — both of Pisces’ planetary rulers — the Sun will meet with La Luna at exactly 4 degrees Pisces. Aside from the general potency of these two ever-glowing luminaries coming together at the same degree of a zodiac sign, this lunation is especially potent as it will feed off the energy of this magical sextile. Jupiter in Capricorn in harmony with Neptune in Pisces is self-mastery meets transcendence. Your dreams are about to come true.


Sitting closely with Mercury Rx in Pisces, this lunation is here to help you make sense of your visions and creative aspirations, amidst surrendering to the universal undercurrents and unseen forces that are guiding you towards something much greater than you can imagine. Pisces is a symbol of divine consciousness; it is your imagination and subconscious state of mind. Sitting in an inspirational sextile to go-getter Mars — whilst sitting with the South Node in Capricorn — this lunation will help you take the desired action towards your hopes, wishes, and dreams, but with a practical mindset. Red-hot Mars will also form almost an exact trine to revolutionary Uranus, bringing both stellar insights and unexpected new beginnings. On the dark side, a square between Venus and Jupiter could lead to overindulgence and in turn, spark unrealistic desires within relationships.

Read your new moon in Pisces horoscope and mantra below:



Stillness is one of the greatest gifts, Aries. You’ve been working really hard these past couple of months so if you feel the need to retreat, listen to your body and take some much-needed time for yourself. You won’t regret it; I promise you. Truth is, with the new moon activating your mystical 12th house of spirit and universal love, you could suddenly feel compelled to connect with something far beyond the physical realm. Now is the time, especially with your solar return right around the corner. Jupiter and Neptune will also be in harmony with one another, and this will encourage you to trust your creative flow and surrender to the universe. Easier said than done but the planets are on your side this time. New Moon Mantra: I am aligned with the divine path of my higher self.



Life is but a dream, Taurus. Your vivid imagination is quite inspiring as of late and the sacred muse of this Neptune-ruled lunation couldn’t have come at a better time. La Luna is igniting your 11th house of hopes, wishes, and dreams but what’s even more inspiring is, it’s here to bless your social spheres with a clean slate from the heavens above. You’re vibrating at a higher frequency and it shows, Taurus. This is a time to mingle and connect with fellow creatives who have similar aspirations, especially in regard to social consciousness. How can you give back? The possibilities are endless so don’t be afraid to tap into your unique gifts in order to make the world a better place. Everything starts with intention. New Moon Mantra: My spiritual potential is limitless and I am here for a reason.



You will thrive professionally, Gemini. You’re finally being rewarded for the sacrifices you’ve made as well as your selflessness in the workplace, and there are sparkling opportunities headed your way. Thanks to Jupiter and Neptune’s dreamy sextile, this new moon will bestow you with blessed fortunes and bring you the recognition you deserve. You earned it, Gemini. With your planetary ruler retrograde, however, your new moon moment could also consist of you revisiting a creative project you once put to aside. Your muse may very well be fickle but you will pick this up right where you left it… and with a lot more momentum! After all, isn’t that what Mercury Rx is all about? New Moon Mantra: When I trust my vision, I become the alchemist of my success.



You’re about to embark on the voyage of your dreams, Cancer. When was the last time you wished upon a star? Or fell in love in an exotic faraway land? La Luna is igniting your expansive ninth house of sparkling opportunities and infinite possibilities, and this will likely inspire ideas for your next spontaneous getaway. With the help of Jupiter and Neptune, your delicious travel plans could easily turn into something ethereal and romantically endearing. Enchanting is an understatement so if traveling isn’t an option, you have my full permission to get hopelessly lost in a fantasy-fiction novel. Although, you and I both know you’re more than capable of writing your own love story, but I’ll leave that up to you. New Moon Mantra: My vivid dreams and life experiences nourish me at a soul level.



You’ve got a gorgeous support system, Leo. You are the ray of sunshine that brightens everyone’s day and yet somehow, you struggle with the thought of leaning on your tribe for mutual support. The new moon will ignite your sharing-is-caring eighth house of sex, transformation, and intimate unions, and this will bring you a much-needed reminder of your worthy investments, both physically and energetically speaking. You’ve had your mind on your money for quite some time now and with the help of this dreamy Jupiter-Neptune sextile, you could finally catch a lucky break. Moreover, the hearty stellium hovering over your health-conscious sixth house will inspire you to upgrade your lifestyle in the meantime. New Moon Mantra: My heart and mind are open to receiving the blessings all around me.



Soul mates aren’t always romantic, Virgo. Your relationships have been a big theme for quite some time now, given dreamy Neptune’s lengthy transit through your committed seventh house of partnerships, but this lunation is here to bring you a much-needed epiphany. Magical and ethereal, la Luna will ignite this area of your chart and in turn, bless you with an exciting partnership and/or collaboration that feels out-of-this-world. Sometimes people come into your life for a reason and it doesn’t matter whether they’re of romantic interest or simply platonic, their presence in your life will ultimately bring you closer to your destiny. Although, given the sparkling transits taking place during this new moon, this partnership could bring everything from utter enchantment to professional success. Get inspired, Virgo. New Moon Mantra: I honor the magical potential and divine purpose of my soul-to-soul connections.



Being in touch with your mind and body is a superpower, Libra. The balance you seek not only stems from the relationship you create with others but more importantly, the relationship you have with yourself. This lunation will activate your health-conscious sixth house of wellness and daily due diligence, and this will likely inspire you to take a different approach to fitness. Exercise and nutrition are essential to your well being but what about your mindset? Are you comfortable with your current routine? The beauty of this new moon is, it’s providing you with enough faith and motivation to move forward and live your best life. Creative and versatile, the energy of Pisces is incredibly adaptable so don’t be afraid to test out a new exercise routine, whether you decide to go for a swim or try out a spontaneous dance class. New Moon Mantra: My physical body is a beautiful vessel from the divine creator.



Let the love in, Scorpio. You’ve got a powerful guard but you can’t deny your desire to merge with another mind, body, and soul. This Neptune-ruled lunation will shake up your expressive fifth house of romance, creativity, and magical inspiration. This is a celestial fairytale. With your traditional ruler Mars igniting your third house of immediate surroundings — while harmoniously trining electric Uranus via your partnership sector — you could run into love and quite unexpectedly, too. Coupled Scorpios could rekindle the flame with their sweet love while those of you looking for artistic inspiration dance along with the elusive muse of dreamy Neptune. Childlike with colorful fantasy, both love and creativity will bloom during this new moon. Let your spirit roam freely. New Moon Mantra: My aura glimmers like the colors of the rainbow and I am free.



You’re home, Sagittarius. There is a divine temple within you and if you sit with yourself in silence more often, you’ll probably hear a voice inside. With la Luna sitting over your cozy fourth house of home, family, and emotional foundation, you’ll likely be in a sleepy slumber the weekend of this Neptune-ruled lunation. Although, beyond the usual effects of the mystical Pisces moon, this is an excellent opportunity for you to create that sacred space your soul so desperately craves. Honoring your self-care routine and emotional body is a grounding experience, but what about your surroundings? Does your living space — and the energies that surround you — align with your definition of nirvana? You know a thing or two about living eclectically, but when was the last time you redecorated your living space? Set the mood, Sag. New Moon Mantra: The blessed universe I seek is a reflection of the magic inside my soul.



Create the itinerary of your dreams, Capricorn. If there’s one thing you know, it’s what you want and you’ll stop at nothing to get it. All business as usual aside, because Lord knows you’ve paid your dues, this is your chance to dream a little dream. With the new moon igniting your clever third house of communication and immediate networks — in the midst of Mercury retrograde — you’re finally being given the opportunity to set up your Out-of-Office automatic reply and run away for a bit. Whether it be getting lost in a good book or running away for a quick road trip, the stars are aligning. Naturally, this area of your chart revolves around communication and paperwork but with Mercury Rx in Pisces, your best bet is to hold off signing anything important. You’re very connected right now so follow your intuition. New Moon Mantra: With faith, all of my thoughts and visions will work in my favor.



Cherish your blessings and most sacred moments, Aquarius. Those are the possessions that matter the most. La Luna will ignite your pleasure-seeking second house of income, values, and sense of security, bringing new beginnings to your money sector… but what does value mean to you as of late? Are you comfortable with your current lifestyle? Does it make you feel secure? A lucky sextile between Mars and Uranus could bring unexpected news, possibly revolving around your money-making abilities and current occupation. Despite the spontaneity of this energy, it’s important to keep an open mind and trust the process during this time. The changes occurring can be incredibly positive for you, so don’t be stubborn. New Moon Mantra: I trust in the divine timing of the universe and this brings me comfort.



Make a wish, Pisces. What do you aspire to be every single day? What do you think about when you close your eyes every night? Invisible yet swirling with universal wonder, the upcoming new moon in your sign is the most precious way to embark on a new journey around the sun. Despite the fussy Mercury retrograde vibes, you’re likely feeling deeply inspired this season, especially with the dreamy sextile happening between  — Jupiter and Neptune — both your traditional and modern rulers. Musing is maybe your favorite pastime but this moon’s got your name on it, literally. Intuitive downloads are surging, subliminal messages are making sense, unfinished business is lurking and the cosmos are working in your favor. You’re higher self is taking the wheel and you’re watching life unfold like your favorite movie. Dream bigger. New Moon Mantra: I am a limitless being with a divine purpose — I am everything.
