For the week of February 21st thru the 28th, be sure to read your Rising Sign as well:
As we open this week, Mars has just completed a square to Chiron which is now traveling in the early degrees of Aries. There is a slight agitation here that could be spilling over into your life. An old echo from somewhere in the past. But Chiron is here to remind you that you are here now, ready to reclaim all the gifts that you had once thought lost. Reclaim your space. And do so without bitterness or rancor, or regret for lost time.
Do so with the same sort of joy you would have in having found a long-lost friend. The New Moon on Sunday is investing all of us with the desire to find greater meaning in our lives. And with that comes this rediscovery. Think of it as a rediscovery of yourself. A good intention for Aries, with the New Moon on Sunday, might be: Through acceptance and forgiveness, I heal myself as well as others, freeing me to then move on to embrace my destiny.
There could be some distractions drawing you off course. Not necessarily in a bad way. Watch for challenges to your diet or your wallet, if you do not keep your eyes peeled. It’s probably for a good cause, however, as there may be celebrations in the offing. Those too can be distractions from the theme for the week, which is primarily about owning and discovering our own path. And also, just how important it is for each and every one of us to discover what that path is for ourselves. We can seek advice, we can learn, we can be a student of human behavior, we can ally ourselves with a cause or a group, but inevitably we are the ones who have to find our own place in the world. No one else can do that for us. This is your wishing Moon. But first you must connect with what would be for you your most ardent aspirations. Remind yourself in the still, silent quietude of the Pisces Moon on Sunday: I am the embodiment of tolerance, patience and loving kindness, and I have room for all.
Mercury continues to be retrograde straight thru till March 10th, so the usual challenges remain: distractions, making it difficult to concentrate or get anything done; feeling like there is a lull in your life; things are delayed or temporarily suspended; or getting lost or feeling lost. That’s the nature of Mercury retrograde in Pisces. However it can also be an opportunity to connect on some deeper level, not only with yourself but with a sense of purpose, and perhaps even your life path. Stop for even a moment as we approach the New Moon on Sunday, and ask yourself: What are the things that would make your life most meaningful? And if you were to visualize an ideal, what would that look like for you? You can even send out the intention with the New Moon to attract, realize and find yourself pursuing the right path. So some possible intentions for Gemini with the New Moon on Sunday might be: May I be led to realize my life’s path and purpose. Or, My imagination has no bounds. May I be open to allowing it to speak through me.
In some way you are being asked to allow your heart to be filled with the inspiration of discovery and exploration. You don’t really have to go anywhere in order to accomplish this. For there is a vast inner world that is also waiting to be explored. And there’s no telling what you may find there. For Cancer, the New Moon in Pisces on Sunday has to do with journeys, anything that is found overseas, your spiritual path, your beliefs, wanting to embark on an intellectual journey, learning something new, or broadening your horizons in some way. On a mundane level this is a Moon for exploring what steps you have to take in order to achieve your goals. But there is something spiritual and meaningful wending its way through the fabric of your life this week. Especially with Mercury also retrograde in Pisces. Therefore, some good intentions to make with the New Moon might be: May I have the wisdom to recognize my true path. Or, May I have the courage and faith to allow divine guidance (my guiding beliefs, my intuition) guide me towards my path.
A sense of excitement and a willingness to try new things permeates the week. Dare yourself to take a few chances. When we change up our usual routines, we begin to look at our life in a different way; from another perspective. Seeing things through other’s eyes, through a different prism, can open up your world in some significant way. As a result this can be a productive week for creative change and mobilization. But there is also something sacred that continues to influence us through the fabric of our lives. Both the New Moon in Pisces and Retrograde Mercury are asking us to find meaning in all that we do. Even in circumstances that might otherwise feel strange or uncomfortable. It is just at those moments that we are being given the opportunity to make some sort of breakthrough or understanding. A good intention for Leo to make with the New Moon on Sunday might be: I can allow my heart to be open, and speak through me, without feeling vulnerable to harm.
Sometimes it can just be exasperating trying to understand where others are coming from. Especially if they are not willing to communicate. When words do not suffice we are required to rely on and trust our intuition, which even in the best of times can be sketchy. Realize that so long as Mercury is retrograde, which is until March 10th, things may not be as they appear to be. And things can get lost in translation. In that case, acceptance is usually the best course to take, when you find that communications falter. On the other hand, sometimes the best thing we can do for others, is to simply be there. And in that case, words can often seem to only get in the way. Look for more meaningful ways to communicate: listen not only with your ears, but with your heart. Some intentions for the New Moon on Sunday, might be: May I readily respond with understanding and compassion to others; or, I can accept others where they are, without trying to fix them.
Mercury retrograde and the New Moon on Sunday are both reminders of those things that most support your health and well-being. Many may wonder just exactly how you manage to maintain your composure and your sense of equilibrium even in times of chaos. It’s not just about moderation in diet and lifestyle, which is important too. It’s also about acknowledging that there is this holistic connection between body, mind and soul. It is easy for us in our busy lives to put aside our soul needs. By soul, we can also mean your emotional and psychological well-being; as well as any spiritual aspirations you may have. Sometimes all that is required is to have a daily practice of quietude that allows you to commune with yourself. Libra is an air sign. And so can tend to live in their minds. But Libra does some of their best and most creative thinking when they are alone. For that is when they find those undistracted moments of inner communion. And that’s their secret. A good intention for Libra for this New Moon on Sunday may be: Through a regular devotional practice of peace and quietude I receive guidance and understanding.
The New Moon on Sunday is very much about us all connecting with our own spiritual behests. That can literally be a spiritual path, but it can also be about investing your life with greater meaning and inner purpose. And in order to do that, you need to connect with that inner part of yourself in the very core of your being. This is also a Moon inspiring us to action. And to act with the courage of our convictions. Someone else may serve as a catalyst, inspiring you to take action. But with Mercury retrograde in Pisces there is also the reminder here that most of the answers are already there, locked within your own heart and mind. And whatever is happening outside, or what you are learning through others, is just directing you within, where it has been all along. A good intention for the New Moon on Sunday, for Scorpio might be: I have music in my heart. May I rediscover it, and carry it with me wherever I go.
There could be an inclination towards a bit of self-indulgence this week. Just remember that you are still going to have to pay the bills later on. Nonetheless, a little well-intentioned indulgence now and then can still be quite satisfying. We all need a little vacation now and then. The New Moon in Pisces this weekend is a reminder to cultivate those things that invest your life with greater meaning and a sense of purpose. But that also can bring a feeling of emotional support and confirmation. We all have our own spiritual path and journey, and for many when they find themselves on that path, it can feel like having come home to rest in the mother’s arms again. It can often happen when Mercury is retrograde in Pisces as it is now, that we have to allow ourselves to get lost in order to find ourselves again. A good intention for Sagittarius, for this New Moon on Sunday, may be: May I have compassion, forgiveness and understanding for the past, embracing the child that I once was.
The New Moon in Pisces this weekend, combined with the Mercury retrograde, is asking us all to step back for a moment and just wonder. It is also daring us to hope for a newer and brighter future. What that will look like is quite individual for each and every one of us, and so a path that might be right for one person, may not necessarily be the right path for you. That sense of discovery is essential for finding greater purpose and meaning. New Moons are often times of new beginnings. And this Moon is also invested with a desire to to start something, perhaps even try something completely new and different. When we shake up our routines, even a little bit, it allows us to look at our lives through another prism. As a result, all sorts of new and creative ideas can then emerge. And there’s no telling where that will take you. A good intention for the New Moon on Sunday, may be: I can develop the capacity to see with the clear light of mind through all otherwise misleading appearances.
Aquarius has been in preparatory phase for so long: tying up loose ends, finding themselves, and their true path in the scheme of things. That is gradually going to shift over the next few years as things begin to fall into place. But one reminder that can come with the New Moon on Sunday, is a reminder that we all have our own unique destiny and spiritual path, and finding yours begins with the recognition of those things, people and experiences that you consider to be your true priorities in your life. Sorting those out will help to lead you where you need to be, and where you want to go. Sometimes you have to step a little outside your comfort zone in order to do so. Therefore keep an open mind. Simple changes in perspective could have remarkable consequences. And by considering new possibilities you could open up a whole new pathway that you hadn’t even considered before. And with Mercury also retrograde, some of the things that this Moon is also hoping to remind you of, is who you really are. Therefore a good intention for the New Moon this Sunday, might be: My heart is filled with compassion for all beings everywhere, where no one individual is more valuable than another.
There is an inclination towards indulgence this week. You might want to watch your wallet. Likely it is all with the best of intentions though. And you might even find yourself the recipient of well wishes and rewards. And with this are many reminders of what it feels like to come back home, perhaps to the path that you were meant to be on all along. The New Moon in Pisces on Sunday for Pisces is about self-renewal and New Beginnings, and will be most pertinent for those born between February 21st and the 25th, or who have 2-6º of Pisces Rising. However it will be relevant for most Pisces people. This Moon for you, is about reacquainting yourself with yourself, and reminding you of those things which are most important to you. Your ruling planets, Jupiter and Neptune were exactly sextile on the 20th, and are aiming to guide you this year in order to find deeper meaning and purpose. A good intention for this New Moon can be: I am a spiritual being filled with light, and a love that knows no bounds. May I draw it forth as it is needed.
ॐ Namasté - Blessings!
