Pisces New Moon

Theme: Healing the Heart & Feeding the Soul
By Dawn M. Harrison (WildWitchAstrology.com)
This week’s New Moon, landing at 12 degrees of Pisces, is an invitation to unlock the doors of our hearts, and open them wide.
Pisces is the sign of the Empath, the Mystic, and the Dreamweaver. As a Water sign, and the last sign of the zodiac, Pisces represents the vast ocean of feeling, sensitivity, and consciousness that binds us all together.
New Moons in this sign seek to connect and reconnect us to our most heartfelt dreams and deeply felt longings, especially those longings to experience our own divinity and our interconnection with all of life.
The energy of Pisces reminds us that we are not alone, and that our hearts are ever a part of something much larger than ourselves.
Pisces is the “Soul-tide” – that great and numinous surge within each of us that propels us to let the outworn barriers of separation fall, so we can truly connect – first and foremost with our own hearts, and then with the hearts and souls of those who are consciously riding the waves of life with us.
Connection is a big keyword for this New Moon… and so is Faith. The quality of this time, for each of us as individuals, and for us as a collective, is about renewing our faith in the values and dreams that we hold most dear, and knowing that they are not only possible, but doable.
This New Moon forms a close conjunction to Jupiter in Pisces, and is joined by Mars, Venus and Pluto conjunct in the ambitious and disciplined Earth of Capricorn.
Jupiter in Pisces reminds us that we are capable of the compassion and the wisdom that we need – to forgive, to connect with our dreams, and to believe in a world that holds, sustains, and heals. The message of Jupiter in Pisces is that there is no predetermined limit to what our “soul-tides” can do… so, go ahead and live and love big – from a place of compassion, wisdom, and faith.
The Mars/Venus conjunction to Pluto in Capricorn represents both a purging away of the old and a deep forging of the new – new commitments, new collaborations, and new creative seeds that ask for us to grow up, step up, and walk with the sovereignty and integrity of the Wise Elder that exists within us all.
Our big dreams and ideals don’t have to be “pie-in-the-sky” if we’re willing to make the real-world choices that will ground them, root them, and groom them.
Though New Moons are about new beginnings, they often represent a reflective time during the Lunar cycle, when we are asked to honor our endings in order to make space for those new beginnings. Since Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac, you may feel especially sensitive to those things in your life that are coming to a close.
Just like the ocean tide, the energy of Pisces seeks to wash away that which is no longer needed, and to wash in that which holds new promise and purpose – that which truly heals your heart and truly feeds your soul.
This New Moon says let your ground soften, and then lovingly plant your soul-seeds of intention – seeds of forgiveness, compassion, and a renewed hope in dreams fulfilled.

Pisces New Moon Ritual
In many ways, this New Moon asks for us to soften, to surrender, and to let the barriers dissolve between the world that we know and the world that lives in the visions of our heart and the longing of our soul. The simple ritual below is designed to help you attune to those heart-felt visions that sometimes get lost in the everyday maze of “have to’s” and “should’s”.
For this ritual, you will need:
- A warm bath
- Optional bath salts
- Optional relaxing music of your choice
- Candle of your choice
- Optional Tarot and/or Oracle deck
- Journal and writing utensil
- Choose a time and a space that allows you to truly relax and come back home to yourself.
- Run a warm bath, using optional bath salts if you wish
- If you wish, play music that you find relaxing and soothing, both to your body and to your mind.
- Allow yourself to soak in your bath and just “be” – with nothing you “have to do”, but be at home with yourself. As much as possible, quiet the chatter of the mind, and feel every ounce of your body, from the tip of your toes to the top of your head. Let your heart fill with gratitude for this time and for this place. Feel yourself whole. Feel yourself supported.
- When you are ready, emerge from your bath.
- Light your candle.
- Sit in a comfortable position and take three cleansing breaths.
- Then, simply ask yourself, “What is being born in my life?” If you wish, choose a combination of Oracle and/or Tarot cards to attune to your question.
- Then, allow yourself to write the answers that you hear – uncensored and without judgement. Write until your heart is done speaking.
- When you are finished, thank yourself for giving yourself this time and this space.
- As the lunar month progresses, revisit your journal entry, adding to it, as your heart leads. Pay attention to any promptings from within, especially around the time of the Waxing Crescent and the First Quarter Moons.
