By the time the Pisces New Moon occurs at 5:35 pm ET, you can have a clear picture of where you want to go with this potential for new beginnings. Keep in mind, new moons are not only about the next month’s plan, but also about the entire cycle of this New Moon to the next time it’s in that sign. That’s almost a year on your calendar and it is a lunar year.
So when you think of the Pisces New Moon in a longer arc than just a month, think of what you’d like to bring in over the year that involves your spiritual and creative world. The actual degree of the new moon is 2° Pisces 42”. If you know where Pisces falls in your horoscope, this is the area of life for your new beginnings.
The Sabian symbol** for the degree of this New Moon is: “Petrified forest”. It’s surely not a coincidence that February’s full moon also had a forest in its symbol. But this time we see the frozen quality, and perhaps stunted growth.
Another way to reflect on this is the solidity of petrification; it cannot be sawed down or gathered for fast human consumption. It has a timeless presence which perhaps is the message. Whatever you begin with this New Moon, be sure its roots go to rock-solid perceptions of why you’re here.
*Moon VOC/Void-of-Course:… in Aquarius you are apt to get caught up in a discussion or a cause which has no resolution. This is an excellent time to visit with friends or bounce around ideas, for pure recreation.
**The Sabian symbols have been enjoying a lot of attention in the astrology blogs lately, and I suspect Uranus’ pass in Pisces had a bit to do with it. We are still in the process of understanding the symbols, which were revealed the last time Uranus was in that sign.
In 1925, the spiritualist astrologer Marc Edmund Jones, took Elsie Wheeler, a clairvoyant confined to a wheelchair to a San Diego park with a project. He put a symbol for each of the 360° of the zodiacal wheel on 360 cards. She proceeded to come up with channeled visual phrases for each one of them. They were done in random order and they have a magic that is hard to decipher, yet feels totally right.
