Welcome dear ones, to our first ever blog post and happy new moon in Pisces.
This is the last new moon of the astrological year, we begin a new cycle next month with the new moon in Aries and this is also when we are launching our membership site.
Pisces is what we call a mutable sign in that it belongs to two seasons, the tail end of winter and the start of Spring. We can finally say farewell to the cold and dark of the winter time and look ahead to the light and new growth of spring. This new moon coincides with Mercury going retrograde so it's really a time for us to slow down and take stock before spring officially arrives. Pisces is a deeply emotional and intuitive water sign and calls for us to calve out time to check in with our self, and connect to our inner guidance. How well are we listening to our inner wisdom? How much time is there in our life at the moment for silence and stillness? Pisces is all about feeling things out, logic and leading with the mind won't work as well during this time. Now is the time to tune in to the divine feminine qualities of feeling all that there is to feel without judgement or attachment. Dive deep into the waters of your emotions and take time to reflect on all that has happened since last spring. What needs to be released, what is no longer serving you, what could be forgiven? What blessings are you grateful for and what lessons have you learned?
Pisces have this otherworldly quality to them, they are often referred to as the mystic of the zodiac, the dreamers and the artists. They have one foot in this world and one foot in the other. This is beautifully represented by the mermaid (often used as an archetype of Pisces) a creature that exists in two worlds simultaneously, in the case of Pisces, this world and then the spiritual world. Likening the ocean to the vastness of the subconscious mind. The constellation for Pisces is two fish swimming in opposite directions, one fish representing the conscious and the other the unconscious.
New Moon in Pisces is a wonderful time to check in with our spiritual life, have we let our self get bogged down in the ordinaryness of day to day land life? How could we activate our mermaid tale and take a dive in to the waters of the spiritual world and re-awaken our connection with the divine? This month would be an ideal time to get back in to meditation, oracle cards, receiving energetic healing such as reiki or crystal therapy and spending lots of quiet time journaling and listening to your inner truth.
Pisces' ruling planets are Neptune and Jupiter. Neptune represents hopes and dreams, emotions and ideas, so use the leftover quiet of winter to allow yourself time to dream. What are your hopes and dreams for the coming year? What would you like to grow in your life this spring? Dream from the heart and remember to connect to the water element of this sign, allowing your dreams to arise within you without judgement or the desire to think logistically...go with the flow!
Jupiter is the planet of expansion and good fortune so tuning in to these qualities whilst exploring your dreams and the possibilities can be limitless.
Key words associated with Pisces: sensitive, mystical, emotional, dreamy, spiritual, feeling, intuitive, caring, loving, artistic, other-wordly, ethereal.
Tuning in to water element over the next few weeks will also help us navigate the mercury retrograde. We can expect delays, technology mishaps and communication issues over the next couple of weeks so a perfect time to learn how to go with the flow, calling upon the mind of patience acceptance. A helpful mantra during this time: 'It is what it is' or 'OM NAMO NARAYANI' which means I surrender to the divine.
New moon blessings to you all,
