There's a New Moon in watery Pisces on Monday February 20, 2023 at 7:05am GMT.
As a sign, Pisces embodies all of the attributes of the sea, deep, mysterious & perhaps a little unpredictable. They are able to withstand considerable pressure & known to have great imaginations, often being linked to the arts, music & dreams.
This new moon asks us to look back on our experiences of the last year & the lessons that we have learnt ~ what you want to hold on to & what you need to let go of in order to expand?
At this time there is also a Stellium in Pisces (which means there are 3 planets in that same sign, in this instance The Sun, Venus & Neptune; enhancing a particular astrological energy) Because of where these three planets sit at the moment, the next couple of weeks is going to be a highly potent time for manifesting & bringing your dreams into reality. It's important that you pay close attention to those moments of quiet. Dreams will be especially significant at this time ~ start a dream journal and write down anything that stands out to you - trust this inner guidance to gain more clarity on what your intuition is trying to tell you.
Key message of the New Moon: Think about the other worldly realms of the deep & expand your mind ~ how you can make a deeper connection to what we can't see in this reality? Really lean in to your intuition & inner guidance to make upcoming decisions; if you don't currently feel connected to your intuition, create some space for you to listen... This can be as simple as giving yourself 5 minutes on Monday to sit in quiet contemplation - choose your crystal that best represents the energy of of what you're calling in. Hold or touch the crystal and ask yourself a question. Sit with those thoughts for as long as you need & then write down whatever comes to mind in your journal.
For all my Margate based friends, spending some time near or in the sea at this time is really going to stimulate that connection to your quiet hits of intuition... for everyone else ~ taking a relaxing bath will also give you that dreamy Pisces connection to water for some inspiration xx
To expand on the message of New Moon in Pisces, I have pulled a card from my tarot deck to enable us enquire further on this current energy. The card I have pulled this month is The Knight of Cups, representing:
. Creativity. Imagination. Beauty. Intuition. Emotions. Compassion. Opportunity.
I was so excited to pull the Knight of Cups for the Collective Tarot Reading; it's so in tune with with the energy of this Pisces New Moon & really helps me lean in and trust the power of these connections!
[Tarot reading from www.biddytarot.com] "In the Knight of Cups, a knight rides on a white horse and holds out a golden cup as if he bears a message from the heart. Over his armour, the knight wears a cloak covered with images of fish, the symbol of water, consciousness and creativity. His helmet and boots are winged, a symbol of an active and creative imagination and an appreciation for beautiful things.
Unlike the Knight of Wands or the Knight of Swords, the horse in the Knight of Cups is not charging forward but instead moves slowly and gracefully, giving an air of calmness and peace. The horse represents power, energy and drive and the colour white is a symbol of purity, spirituality and light.
The background is mostly barren, except for some trees far away and the river that flows through, symbolising the power of the emotions and imagination to create a new life force, even where it may seem that there is none.
When the Knight of Cups appears in a Tarot reading, you thrive on all things beautiful and are inspired by the many creative outlets available to you. While the Page of Cups was inspired by an imaginative idea, the Knight of Cups is motivated by action. You have dreamed about what it is you want to create and now are moving forward with this dream to make it a reality. It may be an art project or something you feel ‘called’ to do, based on your emotions, imagination and intuition. Be open to exploring your passions and your big ideas. You may find yourself drawn to a particular passion or hobby and now is the time to turn it into ‘something.’ While you are in no hurry to reach the finish line, keep in mind that true imagination feeds on action; if you do nothing with your dreams, they will remain just that – dreams and not reality!
When it comes to making decisions, the Knight of Cups is ruled by his emotions and his heart. When this card arrives in a Tarot reading, you are making decisions based on how you feel about a situation rather than what you think, even if others can’t make sense of what you are doing and why, and your intuition guides you in everything you do.".
