When do you hold on? When do you let go? The subtle balance between these two states may be triggered under the Pisces New Moon.
Reaching its peak on February 19, 2023, the Pisces New Moon may bring to the surface an issue where we either need to take action or pause and allow things to be. We may even find ourselves ebbing and flowing between the two states.
Typically, during Pisces Season, we are always guided to go with the flow. We are encouraged to release the mental chatter, to let go of plans and structure, and instead, allow ourselves to float along, being guided by our intuition and the energies of the world around us.
Moving into this state can be powerful and can teach us the magic that happens when we truly surrender. There is a peace that comes from activating this state of being.
But there are other forces at play in the cosmic skies under this New Moon, that are also encouraging us to get grounded, to create structure, and to actually take action on the things that we wish to achieve. If we are feeling stuck, this energy tells us to move, to make a decision, and to shift out of where we are standing.
These two states represent the yin and the yang, the masculine and the feminine, and finding our balance between these two states is what this New Moon is calling for us to do.
There are no wrong paths, it’s all about how we get there and the attitude we have while we are traveling. As the Pisces fish show us, all directions eventually lead us to where we need to be.
Pisces is represented by two fish swimming in opposite directions. Even though they take different paths, their journey is circular, meaning they both end up traveling the same waters. Their experiences may be different, but ultimately they both arrive at the same destination.
Pisces is a very spiritual sign, and there is a lot of spiritual wisdom to unpack as we reflect on the two fish.
One fish also represents the light, and the other represents the dark, pointing to the necessary journey of navigating both the light and the dark states of life.
At times we need to journey through the darker, heavier sides of life, and at other times, we are invited to enjoy the lightness.
It seems that duality is very much a part of Pisces energy, so perhaps it is not too surprising that under this Pisces New Moon, we are being guided to find a balance between holding on and letting go.
While we may find ourselves struggling between these two states under this energy, the Pisces fish show us that at the end of the day, no matter the path, we will always land where we need to be.
This Pisces New Moon falls at 1 degree of the zodiac, which is a highly charged degree for new beginnings. It seems that finding this balance could open some new doors or perhaps clear a path for us.
Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac, so we may also find ourselves reflecting on the last 12 months and thinking about where we wish to go from here. We may feel the desire to leave the past in the past and to think about ways we can move forward.
New Moons are always supportive when it comes to finding ways to move forward and to bring new inspirations into your life.
If you feel called, set some intentions under this New Moon about what you would wish to fill your life with and how you can create some new habits that are more aligned with where you want to be.
Saturn is a very strong influence under this New Moon. Saturn is preparing to move into Pisces in the coming weeks, so this New Moon may also give us a taste of what is to come.
Saturn represents our lessons and challenges. It tends to bring restriction and holds us back in an area of our life so we can learn what we are willing to tolerate and what we are not.
Saturn tends to highlight where we need to take responsibility for our lives and what we genuinely wish to commit to.
Watch for these themes under the Pisces New Moon. Where are you feeling a bit held back or stifled? Where are you feeling a little boxed in or heavy? This may be a clue as to what Saturn in Pisces will be stirring and drawing out of you.
Saturn is the Lord of Karma, so wherever we have karmic lessons to unpack and move through, it is going to be our guide. You can learn more about Saturn’s move into Pisces here.
Overall, the Pisces New Moon may be triggering where we need to create some balance in our lives. We may feel the need to hold on and take charge, or we may feel the need to let go. Or, probably more likely, we may need to adopt both of these mentalities in some form.
Pisces energy teaches us that there is magic in the flow, but with Saturn nearby and some other grounding cosmic influences, we may have to root ourselves first.
Think of yourself with roots deep into the earth, sure and confident in yourself and what it is that you must do. But then allow your higher mind and heart to wander to new places, to new adventures, and to new ideas. Allow your feet to sink into the earth, but your head to move into the clouds.
