On February 21, that shining sliver in the night sky will be one of the most beautiful, serene new Moons of the year. In Pisces (emotions), this Moon is especially intense considering that Neptune (spirituality, delusions, dreams) is also in Pisces, as is Chiron (the Wounded Healer). How can you make the most of this powerful lunar energy?
Be sure to watch your dreams for messages, symbolism and guidance as Pisces is linked to the collective unconscious. Also, pay close attention to any bizarre coincidences and synchronicities that arise during this spiritually charged time. Set your intentions for any area in your life where you need more humility, compassion and surrender.
Pisces is connected to addictions (especially alcohol and internet) so you may be deeply aware of all that is blocking you from connecting to your highest potential and spiritual side due to what have become bad and seemingly unbreakable habits. If you can surrender them for something higher, instead of trading addictions, you’re on the right track.
This is an excellent time to go deep within and find more compassion and forgiveness for yourself and others. Where do you need to be more gentle and understanding? Let go of criticisms and judgments on behalf of this most empathic and unconditionally loving sign. Pisces shows us the way back home to our souls.
Let go of expectations and demands, and focus more on what you can give rather than what you receive. If you can take a little retreat to attend to the needs of your soul, this is the ideal new Moon to do it. You’ll be craving a break from the mundane demands of the crazy world. At the very least, get more rest and carve out time to nurture your soul this week. Embrace this beautiful, healing lunar energy!
