On New Moons release the past, any habits, conditioning, thoughts, beliefs that aren’t authentic or no longer serve you. At this time the Moon and Sun are united at the exact same degree in the sky, both their lights blocked from our sight, merging both conscious and unconscious aspects of our mind. Energy is bought into a contemplative and quiet mood. This makes rich soil for contacting your inner/higher self, planning and setting foundations for your path.
Write down what you are releasing, then burn them as you visualize and feel yourself let go with love and gratitude for how they have served you up until now.
New Moons are about Manifesting, so next plant the seeds of intention you want to sew, then water them with action. Write up to 10 intentions or affirmations to bring into your life over the next six months, by the Full Moon in PISCES. This is when the Sun & Moon are opposite each other at their extreme ends of mutual polarity.
Focus on areas and approaches that PISCES rules, such as:
- Spiritual connection
Unconditional love/ non-judgment
Beyond the material world
“I easily find myself replacing fantasy with constructive action to bring about what I want in my life”.
“I easily find myself embracing chaos in a way that brings about peace of mind and serenity”.
“I easily experience the connection and bliss of universal love”.
“I easily embrace and express my spiritual side”.
“I am easily highly attuned while remaining grounded and centered”.
“I easily hear and trust my inner guidance/intuition”.
“I easily face reality with vision and clarity, knowing my inner voice is always correct”.
This New Moon is conjunct the South Node, along with a Solar eclipse. The south node is our karmic past, a place we tend to wallow as its familiar, yet so overdone it’s overripe, tending to lead to bellyache. The antidote is to take those gifts, in this case, Piscean in nature, and apply Virgo organization, precision and practical application to engage the North Node. The north node is a direction we are meant to develop, which has been underdone, therefore is an unfamiliar territory and a road we tend to resist (because it’s so unfamiliar). However, it tends to get us where we need to go.
The south node in Pisces shadow side, all the traits no longer serving you, are ready to be flushed. Time to clean your fish tank, wipe your windscreen and reset your consciousness.
Addictions, dependencies, apathy, escapism, excuses, victim mentality or martyrdom…Personally, I’m feeling the apathy and just want to sit in forest rock pools and meditate! It’s time to acknowledge truths, without judgment so we can accept, release and move forward.
What has made your fish tank cloudy? And what can you do to clean it up?
What is your most potent goal? Ok, so draw up a list or reverse engineer what you can do to make it happen/move closer to it. Some of the same old excuses coming up as to why this can’t happen? Thank the fearful part of yourself, give yourself love and acceptance or whatever it is you feel you lack and want from something/someone else, step aside and continue.
Make a plan, a timetable, a start and finish date.
We all know what it is that really makes us sing, what we’d rather be doing. Make like a Virgo and chunk it down. Hire a virtual assistant to help you or get a coach to keep you on track. Make yourself accountable. In the west, most of us have little to no excuse and everything to gain.
Mercury is conjunct the New Moon as well, with a solar eclipse impacting this New Moon phase I would read that as primarily resetting your perceptions. Mercury in Pisces is super impressionable. It’s fine tuned to the subtle. Reset your thinking by hitching it closer to your intuitive insights. Remember ‘first thought, best thought’. Catch yourself second-guessing and step back to the original thought, this is often gleaned from your subconscious awareness, which is waaaay ahead of the perceptive abilities of conscious awareness.
Happy New Moon,
