It’s almost spring, and Mother Nature is sending us a very important message at this time. The New Moon is in the water sign Pisces along with the Sun, Mercury and Neptune, and five (yes, five) planets, are in earth signs! The emphasis this month on the water and earth elements is a call from Mother Nature to be compassionate AND practical; as well as a message to honor her, and ourselves, as one body. The earth and water elements blend together and insure fertility; so “seed” your New Moon intentions now to CREATE and FOCUS on your dreams!

NEW MOON IN PISCES FEBRUARY 23, 2020
This New Moon falls in the sign of Pisces, the twelfth sign of the zodiac; the mutable, shape-shifting, water sign, which rules the magical, emotional realms of the subconscious and dream worlds. It is the sign of the poet and mystic; the artist and healer; the savior and sinner; the shaman and physicist. The sign of Pisces is considered the “Key to the Subconscious” and the vast ocean of collective human memory. Edgar Cayce calls this the “akashic record”. Memories and dreams which have been buried just below consciousness now come to the surface to give us more insight and information. This is a good time to look to your dreams for messages.
Pisces is probably the most misunderstood sign of the zodiac; and like its symbol, the two fishes swimming in opposite directions, it is a sign that embraces both duality and Oneness…the universe where subatomic physics and religion merge. The “old age” of Pisces was associated with the symbol of the fish; now as we move forward in our evolutionary process, Pisces becomes the “Grail” which holds the elixir of life, symbolizing our baptism in the New Age.
Think about where you can give or receive more love in your life; where you can refrain from judging others negatively; where you can help someone in need…and always offer thanks for whatever is good in your life.
Pisces rules the feet, as well as the lymph system of the body. Since the sign Pisces rules the unconscious and the creative process of the right brain, many actors, musicians, artists, spiritual leaders, and scientists have Pisces planets prominent in their birth charts. Pisceans are very sensitive and emotional creatures, but they can also get “lost” in their own inner worlds. They are amazing healers and artists; however, they can become overloaded with emotional “stuff” from other people, as well as their own.
This New Moon will highlight your “inner Muse”. This is a message from the Universe to pay more attention to the creative, emotional and spiritual aspects of your life now. Pisces is your inner Healer and Psychic. Pay attention to their messages now. Positive ways to channel this Piscean energy: meditation, yoga, listen to music, watch a good film, have an aromatherapy massage, or just spend some “quiet time” with yourself. We cannot be of service to others, if we don’t pay attention to our own needs.
Mercury Retrograde in Pisces/Aquarius: This New Moon is very close to the planet Mercury (the Messenger), which is also in retrograde motion until March 9th with the next Full Moon! During the next two weeks, communication may be layered with Neptunian fog.
Mercury in Pisces is considered weaker as it is in the opposite sign of its rulership, Virgo; thus, the retrograde accentuates the challenges with communicating effectively. It is important to state our intentions clearly and stay focused on the issues at hand. Don’t try to cram too much in, or you may “ lose sight of the forest in the trees”. Confusion and deception are usual themes with Mercury in Pisces. Read all the fine print in agreements before signing; get a second opinion when necessary; and check and recheck all your details, if traveling.
Since the retrograde moves back into the sign of Aquarius, we may see more technical snafus involving computers, radar, electronic and scientific equipment. Wait until after the retrograde to make any major hi-tech or automobile purchases. The good news with any retrograde period is that you can re-edit, re-do, re-search, or re-organize just about anything in your life now….just keep lists!! Learning meditation or following a spiritual practice will help to clear the outer confusion and interference, so that your our inner messages may be heard.
Since the planet Neptune (the higher octave of Mercury) is also in the sign of Pisces, we have a direct channel to Higher Consciousness during this time. This is a collective imperative to FINALLY learn the lessons of the Age of Pisces. As humanity awakens out of its “old” Neptunian illusions of fear and victimhood, the “fog” clears and we become more open to the greatest lesson that Pisces has to offer: unconditional love and compassion.
Pisces is the 12th and last sign of the zodiac and has been traditionally associated with Spiritual realms, as well as healing. In ancient Egypt, it was symbolized by the Egyptian God, Nefertum, the patron of aromatherapy and sacred oils. In Egyptian mythology, Nefertum was depicted as a lotus flower rising from the primal waters at the creation of the world. The science of aromatherapy or “scent alchemy” in ancient Egypt was a sacred art and intrinsic in magical ceremonies and ritual. The blue lotus is depicted on every temple and tomb signifying the codes for immortality. We know that scent opens up pathways in the brain associated with memories. Oils also carry electromagnetic frequency. Our brains get “amped up”, and new neuronal pathways open up. One of the best ways to release emotional overload is by aromatherapy massage. It stimulates cellular memory and releases toxins at the same time; a wonderful way to treat yourself during the Pisces Moon!
MEDITATION WITH EGYPTIAN GOD, NEFERTUM, GOD OF THE BLUE LOTUS:
Find a quiet and safe space to meditate; light a white candle. Take a few deep breaths, empty your mind, and relax. You are now ready to set your intention for healing and releasing old toxic emotions. Breathe deeply and feel yourself connecting from the deepest core of the planet to the heart of the Milky Way. Standing before you, you see a beautiful young man with a blue lotus flower opening on his 7th chakra. He is Nerfertum, the Egyptian god of the cosmic lotus, who rises every morning with the sun. Nefertum leads you to a lovely reflective pool filled with blue lotus flowers. Their fragrance uplifts your senses and opens your crown chakra. You notice that the flowers also emit a musical tone. As you hear this vibration, a code is unlocked within your DNA. You now feel a cosmic blue-white shaft of light beam from the Full Moon into your third eye. This beam grows and grows into spinning sun of diamond white light, which spins itself into to your Heart. Now, feel the diamond “sun” turn morph into a beautiful blue lotus, which opens in your heart. Imagine your entire body getting nourished from the nectar of this diamond sun and blue lotus flower. Take some time to feel this liquid light spread throughout your entire body. Ask your guides to help align you with your highest soul purpose during this time. Give thanks for all that you have seen and felt. You are now walking in the Light of your higher consciousness in peace and love.
