What an exciting time! New moons are always an opportunity to release what’s not working for us, what holds us back and keeps us down. Not only do we have a New Moon Februay 26, 2017 in Pisces but it also follows a Solar Eclipse in Pisces.
So let’s start with the Solar Eclipse in Pisces. Solar eclipses occur when the moon blocks the sun and dims the sun’s light. The energy of the sun (our conscious) is temporarily blocked, revealing our subconscious (moon) energy. This Solar Eclipse in Pisces offers an opportunity to examine emotions and feelings that run deep. It can be scary diving into the unknown, but we can’t grow unless we face our fears and insecurities. This Pisces Solar Eclipse can help reveal anything below the surface that prevents us from flowing in our authentic rhythym.
NEW MOON IN PISCES—Now that we’ve visited our subconscious , we can leave all that murky dark part of ourselves behind and move forward with spiritual growth aided by the new moon energy of Pisces on the 26th. We may find ourselves changing what we thought we wanted, our spiritual beliefs, or what we thought we knew. At the least, we may find ourselves open to other viewpoints. More and more of the big picture is revealed.
What can we leave behind? How can this new moon in Pisces propel us forward into oneness? Let’s look at the Tarot for collective insight.

How Can The Energy of Pisces Increase Our Awareness?
Through the energy of the Tower, Pisces asks us to look at the core of our being. Where are we vulnerable? What weaknesses, negative behaviors, pain, animosities are we holding onto that cracks our foundation? We have to expose anything below the surface, our weaknesses or shadow self, before we can expect to stand firm and grow. Ultimately, the energy of the Tower serves to purify by removing the old in order to build something new.
What Growth Can We Expect?
With the Page of Swords, growth comes in looking at things with a new perspective. When viewing things from higher ground, we can see the whole picture instead of what is right in front of us. This energy allows us to to see that what we once thought might not have been true or the only truth. The caterpillar is in fact a beautiful butterfly.
What Can We Release?
The Moon in reverse asks us to look deep within and embrace anything negative or self defeating hidden away in our subconscious. Expect heightened psychic and intuitive abilities with the New Moon in Pisces (note the Pisces symbol in the card). The awareness the energy of the Moon brings can help illuminate what we need to release. What can be felt can’t always be seen. The Pisces New Moon helps reveal what needs to be released.
How Can Neptune Navigate Us During This New Moon Cycle?
Neptune, the ruler of Pisces show us spiritual enlightenment but can also bring confusion and disillusionment.

The Alchemist knows that risk also carries the promise of possibility. We can be struck down or we can receive a flash of wisdom. The Alchemist reminds us to find the right combination for balance.
Advice From The Universe?
