Pisces New Moon
February 19, 2023
What’s It All About?
The Pisces New Moon signals a collective new beginning for humanity.
The sign Pisces is the most encompassing sign of the zodiac. Its ruler is the planet Neptune representing the fathomless, fluid and watery depths of the unconscious mind. The powerful energies initiated at the time of the Pisces New Moon will play out through the Aries New Moon on March 21st when the astrological lunar new year begins and over the next six months and perhaps even longer.
A whole new paradigm is emerging globally. Established norms continue to undergo provocative change. While worldwide customs and societal values are getting reviewed for renewal, or elimination altogether.
What you once valued and found great pleasure in, is going through irrevocable change this year as Uranus continues his transit through Taurus. Your mindset and attitudes may be shifting profoundly as Mars has been transiting Gemini for the past 6+ months.
Nothing is as it seems with this Pisces New Moon. We need to hold off making a judgment about what is being seeded now because at first glance what surfaces may not persist long term. That’s the way of it with whatever Pisces touches. Nothing is ever as it seems on the face of it.
Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac and sets the stage for what’s to come in the springtime in just one month’s time at the astrological new year.
A new moon always brings opportunities for setting a new course. Fresh imaginings can be birthed now. You should get clear signs about which way the wind is blowing by the Virgo Full Moon.
Pisces is a very yin, feminine, open and receptive sign. Anything goes with Pisces. There are no boundaries for Pisces. It is the ultimate zodiac sign of inclusivity.
Pisces is the most mystical house, as such Pisces natives are the most mystical human beings of the entire zodiac. The 12th house of the zodiac, which Pisces rules, is a house of great spiritual/transpersonal and Divine mystery.
The 12th house that Pisces rules culminates the zodiac wheel. The 12th house rules the collective and inherited karmas of humanity since before time. At the Pisces New Moon this area of collective humanity gets a major reset opportunity.
In a way, Pisces individuals carry the entire weight of humanity’s destiny on their shoulders. There can be a great deal of feeling that they need to sacrifice themselves for the collective good of humanity.
Those with strong Pisces/Neptune influence in their chart are the artists and creators in our world. Pisces are very sensitive souls who are moved to create inspirational works that can help humanity evolve its consciousness.
The negative side of Pisces can be martyrdom and addictions of all kinds. The pressure upon their sensitive psyche is so great that they can feel overwhelmed with what drives them to express their inherent creative drive. Boundaries and knowing their limits can be a real issue for Pisces.
What’s Up in Your Chart?
Tips for How the Pisces New Moon Can Affect You Personally.
Everyone has the Pisces dreamy and spiritual influence in one, or more areas of their chart. Here are a few areas of your chart to look for:
- Look in your natal chart to find out where Pisces is located, as well as what house it is currently transiting, to see what areas of your life are due for a fresh start.
- Also, check what planets, especially personal planets, are located in your 12th house to get clues about the far-reaching ramifications this Pisces New Moon may offer you.
- What house is Neptune located in your natal astrology chart? (Neptune is the ruler of Pisces).
- As the Neptune is currently transiting Pisces (and ruled by the planet Neptune) all themes related to Pisces and the planet Neptune are especially highlighted. Watch for extraordinary lies and deception to be rampant. As well, tremendous potential for dreams being realized.
- What planets are currently transiting your 12th house? Are there auspicious, or challenging, aspects between any 12th house planets and other planets in your chart?
- The moon moves quickly through each sign and house, so whatever happens though it may leave a lasting impact upon your psyche the emotions will be transient. Best to let your emotions settle before taking action that may have long standing results.
The Pisces New Moon meditation will help you make the most of the fresh new opportunities available now and includes the best essential oil to use (see below).

What you will need:
- A white candle
- Essential oil or blend - use one of the recommended oils, or blend of oils
Make sure you are in a quiet place where you will not be disturbed.
Light your white candle and inhale the scent of your essential oil. You can also scent your space prior to your meditation using an aroma diffuser.
Gaze into the candle flame as you begin to breathe in fully and deeply and exhale any tension. The candle flame reflects your own Divine heart center.
Continue inhaling the scent of your oil and releasing any tension for 1-5 minutes.

At this time, if you choose, you can invite Archangel Barachiel to assist you with your meditation. Angels are ‘light’ beings, simply meaning they are aligned with the creative power of the universe to create peace and harmony in our world.

Barachiel is the leader of all the guardian angels. S/he works to assist your own personal guardian angel to protect and guide you throughout your entire life.
Petition your heart and mind with the following affirmation:
Focus upon your affirmation and take time to drink in and absorb the response by your heart and mind to fulfill your request. Allow yourself the time needed to fully engage in and experience the results of your meditation.
You can also make up your own personalized petitions that feel most suitable for you at this time.
- Thank you for your loving protection and guidance throughout my life.
Allow the alignment of your heart and mind to bring peace and harmony to you and your family and in married life. Allow the renewal of your heart, mind and purpose in this moment. Let go of any resistance to being fully present in this moment. Just allow yourself to remain peaceful and calm.
Take as long as needed to complete this meditation. Repeat as needed whenever you feel the need for protection and guidance for yourself and loved ones.
