Exploring the Deep End
Pisces New Moon on February 20, 2023.
The current state of the world, including several disasters is partly due to both Saturn and Pluto approaching the finish line of their respective stay in the signs of Aquarius and Capricorn. When planets are about to change signs, they tend to make themselves known. March is by far the most dramatic month of the year 2023. Saturn enters Pisces, Mars is finally done its 7 month stay in Gemini and moves on to Cancer, Mercury changes signs twice, Venus once and Pluto starts his transit into Aquarius. We are right on the verge of stepping into the wired and new, while still washing and drying the dishes of the old. More on these changes in the upcoming blogs.
Pisces New Moon
The New Moon on February 20th at 2:05am EST in the sign of Pisces is a pretty dreamy one, especially because Venus and Neptune still also conjoined in the same sign. There is also a wonderful, healing aspect to this particular new moon due to the fixed star Fomalhaut. In addition, Jupiter, the ruling planet of this new moon is also close to Chiron, the wounded healer. There is definitely a feeling of forgiveness, healing, dreaming a new dream and starting anew.
But since Jupiter is currently in Aries, we get a lot more courage, spontaneity, enthusiasm and vital energy than a typical Pisces new moon. Saturn is also soon about to enter Pisces (on March 7), so there is a possibility of making dreams actual reality. Dreams combined with lots of energy and willing to work hard for it seems like a winning combination!
But the Moon will square Mars and Venus will leave Pisces the next day, so there is a possibility of an immediate, but brief setback. But that shouldn't stop us from going fully forward with this new moon - it definitely has "let's make this plan a reality"-quality to it.
Virgo Full Moon on March 7th
As mentioned above, Saturn will ingress into Pisces on March 7th, on the day of the Virgo full moon, which will even further emphasize a dramatic change of mood. (Mercury has also also entered Pisces on March 3rd). But at first I believe we will feel a big sense of relief, if also a bit of confusion. Our previously firm stances on issues may suddenly start to dissolve and soften. But it is then followed by general confusion as to our direction, which should become a bit more clear in a short term by the Aries New Moon on March 21st. I will be examining Saturn in Pisces in a separate post.
The Pisces Tarot Card: The Moon
The Moon card symbolizes the sign of Pisces which is a nocturnal, feminine, mutable, water sign. It depicts the mysterious, dreamy side of Pisces: intuitive, imaginative, psychic, magical and creative. To try to describe Pisces is like trying to catch a fish with oily hands. Maybe it is not meant to be caught and understood with our logical mind at all, but perhaps we are supposed to let the mystery unveil itself only in our dreams at night.
Yet, Jupiter, the God of Wisdom, rules Pisces. Perhaps on the other side of wisdom lies psychic madness? The curious animals in this card (lobster, wolf and a dog) depict our primordial, animalistic side. The shadow side of this card is instability, illusion and deception.
'Peace, be still; and it may be that there shall come a calm upon the animal nature, while the abyss beneath shall cease from giving up a form.' - Waite, A. E.
