“Faith is a place of mystery where we find the courage to believe in what we cannot see and the strength to let go of our fear of uncertainty.” Brené Brown
Mystery has a full plate of secrets
at your table.
Admit it, or be in denial.
and open your eyes.
Bow to tenderness.
Remain open to beauty through the prism of your tears.
Value empathy and the kinship of unspoken affinities.
Know your allies.
Face fear without allowing its cries to crush your clarity.
Write a letter to your hopes and dreams.
Look to the stars and listen to the ground.
Learn to read your intuitive compass and decipher invisible ink.
Sort through the curious treasure trove of your imagination.
Read the poetry etched on your heart.
Trust in the ineffable during uncertain times.
Stand strong in your integrity. Stand strong for the vulnerable.
Practice gratitude. Cultivate compassion.
Believe in love. Be the love.
Allow being. Seek the quiet and listen.
Unravel the tangled spell of illusions.
“I want to feel both the beauty and the pain of the age we are living in. I want to survive my life without becoming numb. I want to speak and comprehend words of wounding without having these words becoming the landscape where I dwell. I want to possess a light touch that can elevate darkness to the realm of stars.” Terry Tempest Williams
Pisces New Moon heightens our senses to be intuitively aware of both the fragility and the strength of being alive. Reality is relative. Time for reflection and listening is precious and necessary. It is an ongoing process to discern the difference between intuition and imagination. The urge to slip into dreamworlds and altered states of perception is enhanced. Avoidance of discomfort. Addiction. Some individuals are driven to do anything to dissolve or escape the limitations of pain and suffering.
Chiron is conjunct the lunation. Boundaries are uncertain. It is difficult to avoid the painful truth. Additionally, Mars in Sagittarius makes an edgy square to all three: Sun, Moon and Chiron in Pisces. Unresolved issues surface. It is challenging to stay present, the urge to escape is strong. Mars is at 29 degrees, the anaretic degree, the final degree in Sagittarius before it moves in to Capricorn. A sense of frustration and urgency to take action in accordance with one’s personal truth or morals. Crisis. Endings. Confusion. Shattered illusions. A potent opportunity for healing painful memories and old wounds through compassion and forgiveness. Stay present and do the deep work.
“Faith and doubt both are needed – not as antagonists, but working side by side to take us around the unknown curve.” Lillian Smith
In the cosmic choreography of Pisces New Moon, the inner work, the invisible devotions, the unseen service feeds us in ways we may not always understand. We are the seeds surrendering to the ancient waters. The waters of tears, grief, ecstasy and the birth of hope.
This new moon marks four days until the Spring Equinox (March 20). It is a time of shift, change and transition. One foot in the Winter wanders in timeless dreamtime of Pisces, of imagination, of unfinished business and the weight of responsibilities we must carry forth. The other foot is already sprinting forward with the Aries fire of Lifeforce rising. Two days later on March 22, Mercury in Aries is retrograde until April 15. A particularly uncomfortable placement for hot-headed Aries, sparks will fly. Yes, introspection for careless words and actions. Go back and pick up those details we missed in haste.
What is my quiet voice saying?
How may I learn to trust my truth when engaged with fear?
What is the healing and resolution I seek?
May I forgive?
