There’s a mystical new moon in dreamy Pisces headed our way, as it will withdraw into the night sky on Wednesday, March 6, 2019, renewing our inner world, while blessing us with a clean slate. Truth is, the rhythm of mother moon is as stellar as it is sacred, and when we acknowledge her maternal presence, along with her moody phases, she is everything we need to make our dreams become reality. You can think of the new moon phase as your blank cosmic canvas and paintbrush; this is your magical new beginning. For instance, have you ever struggled with the idea of starting a new routine? Or perhaps lacked consistency in a particular area of your life? Well, the new moon phase is your chance to put your best foot forward, and set a goal for the next six months.
Please do not feel pressured to set intentions if you’re not feeling inspired. Instead, listen to your body, and be gentle with yourself. Remember, the moon is invisible during the new moon phase, which serves as a symbol of renewal, and you are doing the exact same thing. In fact, this is similar to spending time in solitude. Enjoy the silence. Now, despite the eeriness that comes with this lunar phase, this is an excellent time to reflect, clear your mind, and gather your thoughts. Hint: Avoiding stressful/negative environments, and creating a positive space for yourself is key. Declutter your mind and living space. Make room for your spirit to wander, grow, and evolve. This is your chance to welcome in the new, and la luna will guide you through. Take your time. As you know, setting intentions during this lunar phase can serve as a cosmic kick start. However, while many of us expect to see results during this month’s full moon phase, the seeds we plant during this new moon will typically bloom during the full moon in Pisces in September 2019. Don’t rush the process.
Pisces is a representation of our dreams and subconscious world. Its mutable waters are mystical, complex, and all-encompassing. This water sign is the the last in the zodiac, and its season occurs right before we are reborn in the springtime; hence it is a symbol of both endings and beginnings. In the end, Pisces season is our journey to the divine, before we come back to life during Aries season, and this lunation is here to remind you exactly that. With that said, take advantage of this dreamy energy and get some shut-eye. Free your mind and recharge your batteries. This new moon is reminding us to surrender, and go with the flow. Meaning, it’s OK to take a break from your tedious day-to-day, and get lost in a fantasy novel. Also, if you suddenly feel anxious, remember to take a deep breath, and be present in the moment. Pisces energy can be confusing at times, as it is both hazy and ambiguous. So, do yourself a favor, and avoid getting lost in the fog. Stay grounded.
Moreover, this new moon will be supercharged with a number of celestial energies. For starters, the moon will be sitting close to its elusive planetary ruler Neptune, which will heighten our intuition, while inspiring compassion, and creativity. It doesn’t end there. This new moon will be taking place on the same day electric Uranus enters Taurus until 2026. This is a major transit, which means the seeds you plant now could last up to seven years, if not more! In astrology, Uranus “Great Awakener” is the planet of chaos, rebellion, and unexpected change. Given the cosmic rebel planet’s spontaneous influence, this new moon can also spark unexpected surprises, general restlessness, and spontaneous ventures.
Now, with money-hungry Taurus in the mix, there are opportunities for materialization, given its earthy and venusian influence. For instance, if you decide to dive into a creative project, you could suddenly run into an exciting opportunity, perhaps with some financial perks! Uranus rules technology, so you might want to consider social media, too. Expect the unexpected. The dreamy influence of Pisces combined with a shocking surprise, compliments of Uranus, could very well turn your dreams into reality. Also, in case you’re wondering what types of intentions you should set for yourself, themes of compassion, creativity, intuition, surrender, and universal love go hand-in-hand with the energy of Pisces. With that said, see your new moon in Pisces horoscope and mantra below:
