New Moon in Pisces

In the 4th degree of Movement, Patience & Beauty
To You Radiant Ones:
The Moon dances through our lives, illuminating for us the fleeting nature of our human life. We ebb and then we flow, we’re in flux and then in flow. No matter what life presents to us, it too shall pass.
And while there’s comfort in understanding that no heartbreak will endure, that the happiness you felt for a moment’s time will come round again, have you grown complacent in your life, holding an “it is what it is” point of view?
But hold on. Isn’t life what we make it?
Take a moment to connect to your heart. Rest there for a while before asking this question:
Are you living the life of your dreams? Do you even remember what those dreams are?
Pisces, the archetype of the Visionary who holds the individual dream as part of the collective’s, asks us: Are you living your best life?
Not a life according to a top ten list or a carefully curated social media profile.
But a life built under the guidance of your True Heart that knows your precious sacred blueprint.
I ask myself this question regularly: Am I creating a life based on my values–beauty, bliss, generosity, connection, laughter, service to love?
And I don’t always like the answers–although I do appreciate the truth.
A choice made here. A decision executed there. Each one partially aligned we thought to what we wanted, but which part of us decided in the first place?
Pisces is a Lover and a Romantic, whose big heart is often drawn to where the need is most,
Thank Goddess for the archetypal guidance of the program of the Martyr who becomes activated within us when we’ve stepped away from what gives us joy instead having over-given to the point of depletion, feeling exhausted, frustrated, overwhelmed, resentful.
And what was the reason again?
Has the giving and the efforting been in service to Love? Rooted in Compassion to Self and Other?
The New Moon throws her thin light on a cast of mystical Pisces characters this weekend, stirring our imaginations and the longings of our heart amidst the 24-7 business of our lives
We were born to embrace a magical quest of remembering who we are no matter where our karma has taken us, each one of us given an outline of a story written in our cells, a map to decode, many starlit guides to help us remember.
But over time, if we live our lives based on the illusion of the small self, on shadow pleasures, undiagnosed values, hidden commitments and false vows, the markers meant to guide us to our great human potential grow faint—and we can grow weary.
The treasure chest of lesser pleasures opens and we take on roles and responsibilities without meaning, remain in relationships that do not grow, the daily wine becoming our reward, the TV our medicine, the size of our bank accounts the goal when our Plan could be so much richer.
In times like a New Moon or a planetary transit like our current Mercury Retrograde, we can see where we’ve isolated ourselves, where we’ve strayed off the path of True Love, where we’re outside of our integrity, where we’ve misinterpreted what the signs were saying, where we’ve over-relied on logic and technology. Confusion replaces clarity, anger consumes the love, fear over faith, frustration instead of peace.
Some day, you dream, life will be different.
How about now?
The ancient language of our Mother Earth and her Allies the Sun, the Moon and the Stars invite us now to listen and to remember how to speak the language of Magic again.
For it’s in committing to a path of Magic guided by ethereal companions such as angels and fairies, ancestors and ascended masters (even the belief in them!!), that it’s easier to read the signs, decode the language of the flowers and our animal friends, to activate codes of light and bliss within our moonlit bodies.
Two days ago, a woman’s future self showed up in my living room. I saw Her. We both felt her, squeals of incredulous laughter as we all made the connection.
Do you believe that could happen for you?
Some will find this Moon and Mercury Retrograde both in Pisces whispering for you to wake up the Lover in you who wants to go on another adventure of the heart.
The Dreamer who’s inspired to start building the worlds she’s imagined.
The Mystic who’s opened the door between the earthly and spiritual dimensions.
The Artist who taps into the gifts she was blessed with to tell the stories that need to be told and paint the worlds that long to be seen.
We are ushering in an age of much greater Magic if we choose–not just for us but for the others that need to experience this Shift and this Vision.
So dream, my friend, invoke, connect, write, paint, love. For it is what we were born to do.
In the Magic &
in the Love,
Your New Moon in Pisces Ceremony:
This is a Moon of Magic, of Beauty, of Movement, of Patience in the Process. Below are some suggestions to honor the New Moon and awaken, claim and commit to what’s stirring within you at this time.
In a sacred conversation with your Future Self through meditation or automatic writing, ask for the next clues of your life unfolding.
Write three to five commitments to yourself that you know will awaken greater Magic within and without (a Reiki class, walks in nature, a tarot card practice, etc.). Share them below or with someone you trust to hold your dreams close.
Honor your artistic inspiration by pulling out and using your Artist’s tools (brushes, pen, paper, cookware, etc.).
Create and activate your own Love Spell. Infuse it with the energy of magic, flowers, angels and crystals–whatever makes you feel the shift from the mundane to the magical.
