Pisces New Moon: 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 described 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. Intensified by the energy of the 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.

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.

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.

Doing it for yourself…

If you’ve been reading along, you should know how to find where the New Moon is happening in your chart. If you’re new to this site (welcome), duck across and check out this post before you go any further.

The position you’re looking for is 18 Pisces 56’…or thereabouts.

Now, let’s set our intentions. Think about the area of life you’re focusing on and set small achievable targets. Make sure that you do at least one thing towards this goal this month. If you’re unsure where to start, check out this post.

  • How do the concerns of this house make you feel?
  • How would you like to feel about them?
  • What positive steps can you take over the next four weeks to minimise the gap between how you feel about this are and how you’d like to feel?

*****Write it down!!!!!!!!!!******

Make like Pisces and surrender to the dream- even if it does seem impossible. What can you do over the next 28 days to change this situation? Are there any quick wins to be had? Pay extra attention to your nightly dreams, and if you need to, find some quiet space to meditate.

For me?

This New Moon and eclipse falls conjunct my 1st house Sun, and opposite my 7th house Pluto.

There’s plenty happening in the background that’s far from great at the moment, but I’m looking to make some big changes. I wrote about it yesterday over at and anyways.

If you don’t have any idea about your birth time, or can’t be faffed working it out, you can follow the solar guide:

  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Pisces, This New Moon will be in your 1st house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Aries, This New Moon will be in your 12th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Taurus, This New Moon will be in your 11th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Gemini, This New Moon will be in your 10th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Cancer, This New Moon will be in your 9th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Leo, This New Moon will be in your 8th house.
  • If your Sun of Ascendant is in Virgo, This New Moon will be in your 7th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Libra, This New Moon will be in your 6th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Scorpio, This New Moon will be in your 5th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Sagittarius, This New Moon will be in your 4th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Capricorn, This New Moon will be in your 3rd house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Aquarius, This New Moon will be in your 2nd house.


Often times absolutely nothing will happen…or seem to happen…even if you are receiving a direct contact. When it comes to the moon, the effects are usually quite subtle.

If you haven’t been doing so, why not try journaling your lunar journey- you’ll be surprised how, in hindsight, more has been going on than you might have thought.
