The moon is on her way to being new this Wednesday, March 2 in the watery sign of Pisces at 11:35 am CST. New moons occur every month when the sun and moon are in the same sign at the exact same degree; this is known as a conjunction in astrology. For this particular lunation the sun and moon will both be at 12 degrees of Pisces. New moons are associated with new beginnings and are a perfect time to set new intentions and to make a wish. The day before the new moon, which in the case will be March 1, is known as the dark moon. Traditionally, the dark moon phase is a potent time for performing divination like pulling tarot or oracle cards. This is also a great time to clear out a closet; get rid of something that’s served its purpose. This simple act of letting go of something signals to the Universe you are ready for new beginnings.
Zodiac Facts: New Moon in Pisces
This new moon gives us a line-up of planets in Pisces; the sun and moon join Jupiter and Neptune in this most mystical of signs. Pisces is a water sign meaning you could feel extra sensitive this week. Many of us will be like psychic sponges absorbing the thoughts and feelings of those around us. So, it’s important you have good boundaries at this time; otherwise you’ll feel swamped and overwhelmed by your environment.
The words dreams and psychic are associated with Pisces, so your dreams could be quite vivid and prophetic this week and your psychic vibe will be on high so listen to your intuition. If you have a journal you could jot down any intuitive hits you get this week. Also, this is a time to view and interpret your life through symbolism so pay attention to repeated numbers, words or pictures that keep popping up in your world.
Pisces belongs to the mutable modality. In astrology a modality refers to the nature and attitude of a particular sign. There are three modalities; cardinal, fixed and mutable. Being a mutable sign means Pisces tends to be flexible and adaptable. Unlike the fixed signs that can be rigid and locked in their position, Pisces tends to be understanding and tolerant of the shortcomings of human nature. Where do you need to be more flexible in your life? A more enlightened or spiritual version of this mutable quality can be found in the spiritual text "A Course in Miracles" which defines a miracle as a shift in your perception. According to the text when we ask for a miracle what we’re really asking for is to see a person or a situation differently. What or who do you need to see differently right now? Where do you need a miracle, a shift in your perception? If we live in the shadow or dark side of the mutable modality we procrastinate; becoming lost in our world of emotions, moods and fantasies which in turn drains our ability to take action in the world.
Every astrological sign is ruled by a planet and in the case of Pisces that planet is Neptune the Roman god of the sea. Neptune rules illusions, deception, psychic abilities, escape and mysticism. Currently, Neptune is transiting through it’s very own sign of Pisces until January of 2026 so the planet as a whole is undergoing a spiritual awakening. The astrological Neptune operates a lot like the Hindu term maya. In Hinduism maya refers to the illusions of this world. As humans we become entangled in these illusions (maya) through our desires and our spiritual growth comes when we hit bottom and finally let go. When we let go we gain wisdom from our suffering and we are finally liberated. What illusions are you entangled in right now? Where are you being seduced by maya (illusions)? Is there a truth you just can’t face up to?
All of these lead to the final piece of the new moon in Pisces puzzle; the astrological house associated with Pisces. Every zodiac sign is linked to one of the twelve houses and Pisces is the natural ruler of the 12th House. The astrology chart is a wheel and the 12th House is the last house on the astrological block before we begin again with the 1st House. So, the 12th House is associated with closure, endings and surrender. What do you need to bring closure to in your life? What is ending in your life right now? Who or what do you need to say good-bye to? This is also the part of the astrological wheel that deals with secrets, sorrow and self-undoing which is self-sabotage. Are you sabotaging your success? Are you setting and stepping into your own traps? Are you being self-destructive in some area of your life? On a deeper spiritual level this is the astrological house linked to past lives, karma and astral travel meaning the ultimate goal of the 12th House, Neptune and Pisces is transcendence over the physical world. If you’ve ever wanted to do a past life reading on yourself this new moon in Pisces would be the perfect time to do one.
