A commencement within the completion is here. The New Moon in the Grand Finale of the zodiac arrives to offer the zodiac the opportunity to begin again within a space that needs closure. The New Moon in Pisces wants us to reflect critically on what’s risen from the bottom of the oceans of our subconscious into our conscious consideration. Especially in relationship to the cognitive, emotional, and behavioral patterns that prevent us from becoming the people we want to be.
The oceans of Pisces offer us the opportunity for rebirth. If we allow its waters to wash us clean where we need it. I mention this distinction in the New Moon in Pisces specifically because I think the general theme of December 2021 until now asked us to take radical responsibility for the role(s) in the situations, circumstances, and relationships we’re not thrilled with. We’ve identified where we developed certain patterns of protection. We know where we go when our critical thinking is offline. We’ve brought as much awareness to these spaces as possible. We identified “the fracture” and put the cast on for healing. Now we’re asked to move from treatment to recovery. We can take the cast off the wound and integrate into our experiences. It might be uncomfortable, messy, and vulnerable. But it’s time. The New Moon in Pisces wants our willingness to transition from treatment to recovery.
That might mean we need to apologize to a loved one for our role without defensiveness. And understand carefully what impact our behavior has had on them. It might mean we’re inspired to forgive another for the role they played too without blame and contempt. When I think of “transcendence” - a moontly theme for this New Moon - I think of transcending good versus bad, right versus wrong, and other binary thinking that gets us into trouble. I think of the seminal Rumi quote, “...“Out beyond the ideas of right-doing and wrongdoing, there is a field I will meet you there.” I think this New Moon in Pisces gives us the intuitive capacity to dream that field in a way that helps us connect more deeply to ourselves and the relationships that ultimately determine the quality of our life.
Since all New Moons are a chance for new beginnings but this is the annual New Moon in the last zodiac sign of Pisces, remember - you’re bringing a year’s worth of wisdom and vision to this cosmic reset. The New Moon in forming a conjunction to benevolent Jupiter - currently in and out of Pisces until the end of the year - and so we’re leaning on Jupiter ruled faith, vision, and the courage to dream a dream of light in significant external darkness. You can move from treatment to recovery with a dream in your heart and hope in your soul. With this New Moon and the help of Jupiter on your side, cosmic companionship will be with you. May you be healed. May you recover. May you be blessed. Happy New Moon in Pisces!
