Today, Pisces new moon, a perfect opportunity to close this current zodiac cycle with and give us a new journey for the next. Pisces, two fish swimming in opposing directions, a significance you wouldn't have to explain to someone loaded with Pisces energy as the feeling is hard to avoid. The tug between soul work, deep altruism, psychic waters, the safe place of unseen worlds, and the escape. With no shell to hide in (Cancer) or exoskeleton for protection (Scorpio,) Pisces is the one water sign who is kinda forced to feel it all, and sometimes the dream world, the material world, the melancholic and selfpity world is where pisces goes for a break (just to be real.) When I read charts with strong Pisces and/or Neptune energy there's nearly always some type of past addiction or addiction present (drugs, shopping, tv, food, etc.) That's a tool of escape, a way to turn now the strong energy this world doesn't teach us to harness and nourish, and Pisces had a lot of it. Pisces is a spiritual healer naturally with the ability to understand people, see their hurt, offer selfless support. It's an energy that bridges life and death. A lot of duality comes with this sign. The one fish swims deep into the unconscious and the other to the ego, which speaks for it's own when it comes to personal healing. Pisces has the tendency to run from issues when not in it's highest, but the rope that ties the two fish together can't be broken, there will always be the past, and Pisces is great at romanticizing the past. There has to be a full understanding for healing and transformation, to move onto the next cycle, which the end of Pisces season ushers in with Aries, a fresh start. Soooo this brings us to our new moon and how I see it.
The new Moon is positioned closely with Chiron, our wounded healer energy, a place where our deepest work works hides veiled in the ability to repel us with discomfort. Now is the time to go into this discomfort and truly understand so it can become a complete part of us. Where is your Chiron? What are the areas of life that trigger you the most, that cause the most pain. How can you bring a deep Pisces understanding on the spiritual level to this. Was there an event? How did that inform how you interact with the world now? Is forgiveness and empathy, maybe for yourself, ready to come in? Some may say it's justifying, but try to find the lesson, the reason why this trigger exist for you, and then use that to understand yourself and your work in the world. We've got a bit of Mar tension hanging out, which is great to let in. Mars at it's highest is brave and courageous, helping the soft Piscean energy stay with the work with you can guide the help rather than just get frustrated and give up. Just keep in mind you can use the tools however, and change doesn't typically happen without a bit of discomfort. Think about all the seeds under our feet right now, in the dark, waiting to burst open and emerge with Spring. Whatever you may find this new moon, think of it as a seed. Pisces is a great healer but not a fast one, maybe exploring this area will be your work for the next zodiac cycle.
