On March 2nd, at 12:35pm EST, the Moon aligns with the Sun in 12 degrees of Pisces, marking the beginning of a new Moon cycle. Feel free to also watch my New Moon video on the subject

Because New Moons mark the ending and beginning of a monthly cycle, they are an optimal time to pause, reflect, and set new Intentions for the next 28 days.

This New Moon chart has four planets in Pisces — a line up (aka Stellium) that includes the Sun, the Moon, Jupiter and Neptune; the New Moon and Jupiter also sextile Uranus in Taurus. The Sun squares December’s Solar Eclipse degree several hours after the New Moon becomes exact, which signifies a turning point.

There is also a second line up in this New Moon chart that takes place in Capricorn, and includes Venus, Mars, and Pluto. And since those three planets answer to Saturn right now (Saturn being the ruler of Capricorn), we must also mention the current Saturn-Mercury conjunction in Aquarius. 

All of this will bring some forward movement. The next four weeks are thus essential in our lives on both the personal and collective levels. In fact, new beginnings are possible on multiple levels, as long as we get enough rest and make time for tuning in. I will go into all of this in more detail in a moment, but first let’s start with the Stellium in Pisces:

Pisces invites us to connect with our inner divinity, and with our ability to receive, trust our intuition, and contribute to life from a heart-centered and empathic place.

Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac, and thus connects us to our spiritual journey, as it represents a reunion with Source/God/the Universe. At its highest vibration, Pisces unifies all dualities — it is completely aware of the oneness of all. It tells us there is a union within, that exists always, and that we can tap into it.

To move into a higher, lighter Pisces vibrationask yourself the following questions:

Do you have your Ascendant or any personal planets in 10-14 degrees of Pisces, Virgo, Gemini or Sagittarius? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly for the next 28 days. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

The New Moon is also the best time to set some powerful intentions for this month’s Moon cycle. This is best done soon after the New Moon becomes exact — and definitely not during a Moon void of course phase — so this month, the best time to set intentions would be between 12:35pm on March 2nd and 4:45pm on March 3rd, and then again from 7:52pm on March 3rd until 12:35pm on March 4th (New York-time)
