THE NEW MOON
The New Moon is one of the most powerful times of the lunar cycle. The Moon’s energy is subtle at this time. She may be in darkness, but she still has the ability to create dramatic shifts in our vibration. New Moons are the start of a new Lunar Cycle, ripe with potential and possibility.
As the Moon and Sun meet, they create a spark. This spark is the seed for new beginnings and new frequencies to evolve through the Lunar Cycle. This spark is what makes our intentions set on a New Moon so potent. Each month, we have the chance to begin again. We can choose which vibrations we are calling into our world. When we consciously select the energies we want to embody, we empower ourselves to manifest any dream. We tell the Universe what we are ready to receive and what we are welcoming into our lives.
NEW MOON IN PISCES
Every New Moon is positioned in a zodiac sign. This month, we have the New Moon in Pisces, where the Sun is located for four weeks. Pisces themes our New Moon and helps us focus our energy.
When Pisces meets the New Moon, magic is in the air. Pisces reminds us of the vastness of the universe and our place within it. This energy teaches us that we are one with everything. We are made of the same energy as the Sun, the Moon, and all of the stars. We are also one with our dreams. Everything we want is already ours. Every wish, desire, and vision is in the realm of possibility because energetically, we are already living it on some level.
Our job is to break down the barriers within us that prevent us from receiving our highest visions. By working with this Pisces New Moon, we can feel the infinite flow of our life and energetically align with our dreams’ frequency.
JOURNAL QUESTIONS to open us up to this New Moon energy..
1. How does it feel to just be? Are you comfortable in this state? How can you release the need to do and instead permit yourself to just be?
2. What helps you observe the fluctuations of your mind, emotions and energy instead of reacting to them?
3. What does your intuition feel like? Do you trust it? What are some decisions you can use it on instead of relying on logic?
4. What does ‘trust the process’ mean to you? How can you surrender more to the wisdom life is handing you and trust that it is all meant to be?
The key to this Moon is to just be, allowing inspiration to come from the Universe. We often feel that we need to do something to manifest our dreams. This Moon teaches us that we do not need to do anything. We merely need to receive guidance from ourselves and the Universe. The energy of Pisces, like the ocean, helps to quiet the noise around us, giving way to our inner knowledge. If there was ever a Moon to meditate on, this is it. Spend some time sitting in meditation and be open to receiving guidance. Suspend any preconceived notions about what you should be feeling or experiencing, and get in touch with what is. Experience yourself in your as-is state, not trying to shift or cause anything to happen.
In this simple energy of being, you become receptive to knowledge in the form of ah-ha moments, flashes of insight, feelings of direction, and inner pulls. We often think our intuition is challenging to recognize, but once you learn to quiet your mind’s fluctuations, your intuition shines through so brightly you won’t be able to ignore it. Your intuition comes in waves of feelings. It becomes easier to recognize after you become aware of your emotional reactions. When you are in a reactive state, it can be challenging to hear yourself.
Pisces inspires us to feel our most creative self. This is a Moon made for daydreams. Give yourself permission to let your mind wander to new destinations in your imagination. Allow yourself to dream. Feel your visions coming to life as you see yourself living how you want to live. Imagine anything you want, and notice if your logical mind tells you it’s impossible. This resistance is the first key to finding your barriers that prevent your dreams from becoming a reality.
Notice what you tell yourself about your wildest dreams. What do you think is possible and impossible? Why? Where do these labels come from? How far do you allow your imagination to travel? Notice if and when you put the breaks on your visions and explore why. Perhaps you experience fear in some part of your body. Or maybe some part of you feels you don’t deserve your dreams. Often, we need to tell ourselves we are worthy of our visions for them to appear. Seek out the resistance and the barriers within you and dissolve them with the waters of Pisces.
AN EXERCISE ON BUILDING AWARENESS AROUND YOUR FEELINGS
As you work with this Moon, it’s helpful to notice what feelings arise each step of the way. Begin by writing down the statement “I feel…” and allow your consciousness to fill in the rest. Write down everything you feel in the moment, without restriction. After you’ve emptied your emotions onto the paper, take a few deep breaths and feel the moment. Ask yourself what you now understand after exploring your feelings. Be open to any answer that arises. Continue building awareness around your feelings and your understandings throughout your practice. You can even make this practice for the next lunar cycle, writing what you feel and what you understand daily to explore yourself on a deeper level. Pisces teaches us that feelings hold information. By allowing ourselves to dive deeper and deeper into our consciousness, we unravel the mysteries of our energy.
Once you’ve allowed yourself to imagine and envision your dreams, this Moon teaches us to trust the process. Pisces reminds us to receive, to be, to imagine, then to trust and surrender. It’s also important to note that the path to your visions may not look anything like you thought it would. The Universe has interesting methods to get us to our dreams, and you may need to endure challenges or confusing circumstances to get there. This process is where trust is involved. It’s your job to hold the vision of your intentions, know that they will manifest, and even be grateful for them having already occurred.
You may not always feel in control of the path to get you to where you want to be. However, Pisces reminds you that flowing with life will get you to places that forcing never could. While there will undoubtedly be times when you need to make a decision or take action, it’s essential to become aware of when you need to dance with what life is handing you. Also, practice being with your intuition and settling your mind before making the decision. It will be easier to determine your course of action when coming from a place of grounded, inner knowing. Flowing with life, though, can be challenging. It requires patience and the willingness to let go of, or shift, plans. You need to trust life to dance with it and trust that the Universe is always handing you the wisdom your energy needs.
The process becomes more challenging when things don’t go how your conscious mind wants them to or when life throws you curveballs. Know there is a part of you that is connected to everything in the Universe. You hold all the knowledge of infinity. So when you surrender to the flow of the Universe, you are surrendering to yourself- the part of you who knows far more than you could ever realize and is connected to infinity. Over this Pisces Moon, notice the ways you seek to control your life and the world around you. How do you choose to direct your flow, and how could you surrender more to the natural ebb and flow of the Universe? How can you trust the subtle pulls and shifts as the process of your life unfolds?
You are the moon, the stars, the flow of the water. You are the universe. Take a deep breath and feel into the magical being that you are. Unfurling in time to your own rhythm.
