Happy Sunday, divine one!

Today, February 23rd we welcome in a magical new moon in 4 degrees of Pisces. We entered this beautiful energetic field at 7:32AM PT (10:32AM ET).

A Pisces new moon places special emphasis on creating a connection to the energies of the heart…… the world of spirit, dreams, your divine being, your intuition, compassion and inner wisdom. We can bask in that higher vibration of Pisces by connecting to that intuition and inner wisdom, discerning and deciding how we can best evolve and grow as we use this new moon energy to move forward in our lives.

The magical Piscean energy is emphasized even more right now with a total of 4 planets in Pisces (the Sun, Moon, Neptune and Mercury). Make the most of this beautiful energy now to connect with Spirit and your divine self and receive inspiration around anything new that you may wish to bring forth into the world this year. The Sun will move into powerful, action-oriented Aries on March 19th, shifting us to a very different focus. This starts off the Spring Equinox and the astrological New Year!

Mars is squaring Chiron (the Wounded Healer), asking us to release any old patterns and ways of being that are no longer a fit for who we are becoming. Uranus sextiling the Sun supports us in making the necessary changes that will help us to create a life that we love! We are also supported by Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto all in Capricorn now, helping us to keep one foot on the ground and take the steps to create our desired reality.

New moons are for setting intentions and planting seeds for your magical desires to manifest later on in the moon cycle. This is a fantastic time to focus on what you wish to bring into form and create the momentum for the remainder of 2020! It’s perfect to write down your intentions and speak them out loud, with feeling at the start of each day to help the manifestation process along.

As we feel the push to move forward with the new moon, another major astrological event is asking us to do the opposite and stay the course! Talk about conflicting celestial energies……

We entered Mercury retrograde in Pisces on February 16th and will remain there through March 9th. The retrograde time asks us to take time to care for ourselves…….to slow down, breathe and take care of body, mind and spirit. Take this time to redo, revise, reorganize, reconnect, reflect and revisit wherever needed. It’s a great time to “clean out the closets” and revamp both your inner and outer environments. Continue to take time to reflect on where you’ve been in 2019 and decide how you would like the rest of 2020 to look. What is still calling out to be released from your life from last year? What do you intend to create THIS year?

It’s a GREAT time to review your intentions that you are creating during this new moon cycle, pay attention to anything that comes up for revision with those intentions, then wait until after the Aries new moon on March 24th to implement major actions if at all possible.

A few things to keep in mind during the retrograde:

  • If possible, avoid making large purchases such as cars and homes.
  • Make sure your computer has been backed up and try not to buy electronics during this time if you can help it.
  • It’s a good idea to wait on launching a new business, signing important contracts, and making important decisions if possible. Decision making can be off at this time and you may find afterwards that you didn’t have all of the information needed to do so. If you do need to do any of these things, just be sure to double and triple check written contracts and ensure that there are no miscommunications.

When considering the above-always go with your inner guidance, first and foremost. Maybe you are feeling guided to go ahead and do something on the above list. Maybe your car just broke down and you need to buy a new one during the retrograde period. These are just guidelines, not hard and fast rules. Do whatever you feel divinely guided to do!

There is LOTS of energy flowing from all of these powerful events right now. The new moon will drive us towards action, but remember to spend as much time as needed to rest and recharge as well! You will want to create a space for plenty of self care to be able to integrate the amazing galactic changes that have been occurring. Take this time to make use of the many wonderful healing modalities available to you such as energy work, meditation, massage, sound healing, salt baths-whatever resonates for you the most! Focus on giving yourself the love that you deserve <3

Questions to ask yourself or journal upon at this time:

  • How is my Higher self asking me to take excellent care of myself at this time?
  • Where in my life am I being asked to trust the Universe and step into expansion?
  • Who do I need to become to create my heart’s desires in 2020?

I’d love to hear about your experience with the current celestial energies! Feel free to comment and share if you feel guided <3
