The new moon in Pisces is here to inspire us to dream, imagine, and create the reality we want most for ourselves. Pisces rules our imagination, intuition, compassion, empathy, and creativity. While this sensitive water sign may leave us feeling a bit extra drained or vulnerable, if we can navigate these deep emotional waters, we can use this energy to set some powerful intentions for our future.
DREAM, AND THEN DREAM SOME MORE
Pisces is by far the dreamiest and most imaginative of the zodiac signs. Now is the time to let your imagination and creativity shine. During the days on and around the new moon, give yourself permission to lead with the heart and allow yourself to dream. Dream up your ideal life. What does it look like? Your dream job, dream home, dream relationship, dream lifestyle? Write down what comes up and refer to them on days when you find yourself feeling lost or scattered.
At night, you may find that your literal dreams during this new moon may be more vivid than usual. Dreams are messages from deep within our subconscious. They are a way for our minds to process everything we take in and experience. Keeping a notepad or dream journal at your bedside is always a good idea, but even more so during this Pisces new moon. In the morning, write down everything you can remember about your dreams. Try to remember faces, settings, animals, symbols, etc. Use this to do some research into dream symbolism and see if you can learn more about yourself and what your subconscious is trying to tell you.
COMPASSION + EMPATHY
During this new moon, Neptune (Pisces' ruling planet) and Venus will be in the sign of Pisces, as well as the sun and moon. This means big emotions, loud intuitive messages, and lots of sensitivity when it comes to the emotions and wellbeing of others. You may feel drawn to tend to the needs of others in a caring and loving way. This new moon is a great time to establish healthy ways to show your love and care for others.
If you are empathic by nature, you're likely to be even more sensitive to the needs of others during this new moon. Showing others love and compassion can be very special and rewarding, but not at your own expense. Pay extra attention to how much energy you are emotionally investing in others. It's very easy to fall into the trap of trying to help and care for everybody, so be sure to set boundaries for yourself and your emotions. Setting and maintaining boundaries, particularly about where your energy is going, is a beautiful way to practice self-compassion.
TRUST + SURRENDER
As you set your new moon intentions for this cycle, really listen to what your heart wants and lean into your intuition. Where have you been holding back? In what ways have you been afraid to expand? There may be things you've been wanting to do, but you find that you talk yourself out of it time and time again. Maybe you've been telling yourself "I'll do (blank) when...," using logic as a weapon to self-sabotage and distract from your goals. It's time to shed this mindset because there is no such thing as "the perfect time" to begin something new or make a major change in your life. Let this new moon inspire you to surrender, trust yourself + your intuition, and have faith in what the universe has in store for you.
This new moon may be challenging for some, particularly those who are already sensitive. Remember to listen to your intuition more than anything during this new moon. Messages will be coming in loud and clear, and the most important part of receiving intuitive guidance is to pay attention and act accordingly. If you're being called to rest, then rest! Take care of yourself, drink extra water, and show yourself some extra love this new moon.
