New Moon in Pisces: I Have a Dream…


So anyways, I have this issue with boundaries. I find it difficult to operate within them, so I seek to escape their confinement- yet without them I’m pure chaos.

My friend Clementine Atkins describe it well in a post a couple of years ago:
Within its boundless state we have chaos, panic, fear.  Nothing is clear or precise – all is just a merging of images, dreams, ideals, memories, experiences, yearnings.  It is from this swirling mass that Pisces needs to find meaning, definition and direction.  It was also from a swirling mass of everything and nothing that the big bang was meant to have happened and we had the beginning of a new universe.

It’s from chaos that dreams are able to form.

The thing about dreams is they either stay in your head or come out of the bucket and onto the table. The other thing about dreams is that once they are on the table, they are no longer dreams, but goals. And once a dream becomes a goal, there is no going back. Another thing about dreams? Sometimes you just have to trust that they can come true.
While a dream is still just a dream, it can be an escape, a sanctuary…especially if, like me, you have Pisces on the Ascendant or the Sun or Moon in Pisces. When a dream is still a dream, it is the fantasy that keeps it alive, the possibility that one day you might attain your desire.

As soon as it becomes a goal, all of that becomes way too real.

Sometimes Pisces and her dreams can seem as transient as a drop of dew on the petal of a rose. The mistake people make when they think of Pisces is to assume that we are weak, spineless. But move that dew-drop and what happens? That drop has its own skin and simply changes its form.

Pisces has a habit of making her dreams come true- in ways that may not seem obvious to other signs. How? Often simply by refusing to look at the possible negatives, and keeping your focus on possibility.

It’s how Pisces can make it happen- because it may not have occurred to them that it can’t…or because they have grown up sufficiently to allow reality to get in the way of a good dream.

The danger, of course, is in using the fantasy as an escape. Another is in trying to control the fear, as opposed to acknowledging it and letting it go.

Now is the time to clear out all of that, all of doubt, all of that fear. In this last day before the New Moon, let it go- all of it- and take sanctuary in whatever it is that Pisces represents for you.

This New Moon is spiritual, creative and immensely emotive. With this much energy, there is no ignoring the fact that one part of your life requires a dream, is asking for inspiration, needs to, well, trust.

Falling in the very last degree of Pisces, and intensified by an eclipse, this New Moon really is the point where the other world meets the real world- where that which is hidden becomes exposed.

It’s that point where boundaries are beautifully blurred between what you know and what you know. If you have a creative project you have been delaying on, or making excuses for, now is the time to listen to what you know in your heart, what you know intuitively. Leave the head stuff for later- much later.

Wherever Pisces is in your chart is where this blurring will be in your life. Escape from your everyday into it, take sanctuary in it, go with it. Let your imagination roam free. Float into the beyond. Follow your dream- even if it means coming face to face with your biggest fears in the process.

Ok, DIY time.

1. Look for Pisces in your chart. The symbol is below- it’s back to back C’s with a line joining them together.


2. Now look for 29 Pisces. What house does it fall in?

  • Have you got any planets or chart points between, say 26 Pisces and the very end of Pisces? It’s an eclipse, so let’s go a little wider- even out as far as 4 degrees. Obviously though, the closer the orb, the greater the influence.
    These planets will be conjunct the New Moon.
  • What about in the last 4 degrees of Virgo? These will be in opposition to the New Moon.
  • What about the last 4 degrees of Gemini or Sagittarius? These will be square to the New Moon.
  • Any planet in the last 4 degrees of Cancer or Scorpio will be trine the New Moon.
  • Any planet in the last 4 degrees of Taurus or Capricorn will be sextile the New Moon.

Now, check out the aspects and follow the DIY guide I posted yesterday.

As for intentions?

This month the New Moon falls in my first house, conjunct my Moon, so my goals are focused around me- and my image…who knows, I could decide to wear lippie and a face more often…or not.

Try it for yourself…
