New Moon in Pisces Monday, March 15, ’10
2:01 pm PST ~ 5:01 pm EST
The New Moon is the time for new beginnings, so take actions directed toward what you want to increase, create or develop in your life. Get clear about your desires and decide that you will manifest them. The extraordinary energy that’s available right now is a gift, so please make good use of it!
Pisces is a water sign that’s about feelings, intuition, imagination, dreams, mystical experiences, compassion, empathy, the collective unconscious (“All are One”) and going within; it is the sign of being, rather than doing.
Pisces is a non-linear energy, where intuition rules and you have an inner sense of “knowing.” Going within to connect with Spirit is the place you can always rely on for refuge and renewal when you feel overwhelmed or disconnected from your Self.
Pisces rules fantasy (think of a Monet painting) and sees the world through its own beautiful lens – where is the beauty around you? Do you notice it, do you feel it, or are you too busy doing? Is there time for contemplation in your life and if not, are you willing to create that space for yourself?
Forgiveness is another gift of Pisces, for that’s when you feel deep compassion for the “other.” Is there someone you’ve been unwilling to forgive that you now can release from judgment? Is it you? Having compassion for yourself is potentially life-changing, as you cannot allow yourself to receive if you judge yourself negatively.
On this New Moon, go within and connect to your inner Divinity and visualize your dreams, listen to beautiful music or commune with nature.
Pisces is a “yin” sign, so practice allowing and receiving – decompress in solitude and stillness, experience serenity and set your intention to release worry, tension, and the “to do” list. If you must have a “to do” list, put “creating space for me” on it! Be very gentle with yourself and remember the truth of who you are, your beautiful Spirit.
Pisces operates in flow – it doesn’t confront or try to overtake anything – it moves forward and when it encounters resistance it flows around the obstacle or the energy is redirected in some smooth, harmonious way. In this model struggle is non-existent; if you are involved in struggle, something isn’t working so make a new choice. Your choice may be to take the sail out of their wind!
“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.” ~ Helen Keller
“Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It’s a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity.” ~ Pema Chodron
