The “New Moon”. This astronomical event happens when the Earth, the Moon and the Sun are aligned, the Moon being placed between the other two. The Moon is then invisible, it turns pitch black. It’s a time of stillness, of reflection. It allows us to sow new seeds for the future. The next New Moon will take place on March 2nd at 6:34 PM CET in the Mutable Water sign of Pisces, and its energy will last as always around 2,5 days. So you have plenty of time to set your intentions until more or less Saturday morning. But don’t think that nothing will work if you set your intentions later! The cosmos is not setting deadlines to your potential evolution. It's just that the timing is better and the effect is greater while the energy of the New Moon is activated, that’s all! Working in synchronicity with the universe is always more powerful.
Be aware that the following interpretation considers the general energies at play on Earth during the New Moon. Its effects vary radically from one individual to the other depending on the natal chart.
Pisces, the sign of the Fish is the least incarnated of all signs as it doesn’t really give us any shape, any matter to grasp. And this is normal, as Pisces is where we dissolve ourselves, we surrender to the intangible side of life and get in touch with the invisible realms. This is where we encounter spirituality, mysticism, magic and dreams, but also fears, suffering, addictions and everything we try to hide under the carpet.
This is a water sign that we’re dealing with and it therefore plays on the emotional cords of our beings. That’s the reason why you might feel heavier than usual in the last few days, and for a good reason if we consider everything that is going on everywhere in the world. The universe is asking you to pay attention to your feelings. If you feel emotional, heavy, sad, depressed, angry, then acknowledge it and be strong enough to recognise why you feel like this. The highest risk with this kind of energy is to “take the easy road” and try to numb yourself and forget with various means that are alcohol, drugs, food, TV series, anything that can take your attention away to what you actually feel.
Pisces is also offering us the possibility to really tap into our spirituality and connect with the other realms. Our dreams can be more intense, feel more real than usual. Getting in touch with our soul, our guides, our angels, the source, God, whatever you might call it, is becoming easier as the veil between the spiritual and the material worlds gets thinner. It is therefore a perfect time to meditate and connect deeply with your spirituality and beliefs, to listen to your intuition.
Venus is finally going out of its shadow, after being in its retrograde process since November 2021. It will immediately move to a conjunction with Pluto and Mars right after the New Moon. We will be invited (in this configuration I would rather say that we will be forced) to transform our relationship to fears, power, anger and destruction. Mars igniting and fueling the plutonian power, bringing things to an extreme, a peak.
Mercury (messages, communication, thinking) in conjunction with Saturn (authority, law, rules, society) in Aquarius, will square Uranus (the rule-breaker, the great awakener, the Humanitarian) in Taurus. Our mind, our intellect is gonna be very structured and powerful, with an intense scientific eye for observation and an openness to new visions. It could potentially bring some “A-HA” moments, breakthrough ideas like a eureka, bringing new possibilities out of nowhere.
The Moon (and the Sun, because remember that Moon and Sun are aligned during a New Moon) is in conjunction with Jupiter and Neptune in Pisces, and this my dears, doesn’t happen every day (the last time was in March 1856, at the beginning of the industrial revolution)! This is the beginning of an incredibly spiritual, deep and profound period of expansion, full of dreams, creativity, hope and compassion. A time where basically everything is possible. Humanity is experiencing a spiritual expansion, an increase of consciousness, a reconnection to its divine nature.
I know that it’s hard to believe considering the major conflicts and issues still going on everywhere on Earth. We’re going through troubled times, that’s for sure, but my feeling is that this is a necessary transformation, a death before a rebirth. There is a shift going on, a change of vision. People simply want to change the world, to reconnect with the Earth, to live in harmony and at peace with the whole. We have to acknowledge the fact that there are far more people wanting peace in this world, than people wanting war.
We have to remember that war and all conflicts in general are the materialization of our own personal shadow. We create those events to express our own anger, our jealousy, our greed, our selfishness. We say that we are for nothing in the wars and fights raging all over the planet, but we definitely are. Each of us is responsible. We are all potentially extremely violent. The thoughts, feelings and actions of each human are piling up to create these events to allow us to face our own shadow.
That’s the reason why, as small as we may feel, our role is critical in the evolution of humanity and will directly impact life on Earth. If we want to bring peace and harmony, we first have to transform and elevate ourselves. We have to open the space of our hearts and face our shadow before it manifests outside of ourselves. That’s the direction we’re taking right now and that’s why, even with everything that’s happening at the moment, I have an immense wave of love and hope rushing through my body.
Now, don’t think that my vision is that everything will calm down, that we’ll come back to our lives without changing anything. Our lives are gonna be completely transformed in the years to come. We’re gonna go through massive changes. Forget about getting rich, owning the iPhone 23, the last model of Wolkswagen and your 50th pair of shoes. This will be over. We’re running out of everything that makes our lives “modern” - all the resources of the Earth are coming to an end: no petrol, no raw material (all the mines of metal of the world are almost empty).
We will be pushed, forced to come back to what’s essential, to collaborate and recognize that we all need each other, that we have to collaborate, every single person will have to help and join the effort. No one will be able to hide behind useless office jobs that only create value for a handful of rich and oppressing patriarchs. It’s gonna be extremely complicated, difficult and full of challenges to change the system in place. But the truth is that we won’t have the choice.
Maybe it’s only me dreaming, wishing everything to change for the best, hoping for a complete reset of society. Yes, maybe. But still, this is a very deep feeling that I have, anchored in my soul. You might think that I’m exaggerating, that I’m a partisan of the collapse, maybe even a conspirationist. But I’m not here to convince anyone. I’m simply here to share what I feel in the air, what my dreams are bringing me, what the stars are narrating, and I always support my reflection with scientific and proven facts.
So under this magical New Moon in Pisces, my main recommendations to you is to keep your dreams and hopes high, to listen to your intuition and follow your heart. This is how the magic will happen. We all incarnated in this time and age for a reason, each of us has a specific and key role to play in the divine game. Try to sow seeds that will trigger and support your own transformation, that will help you face your shadow. Set intentions that go beyond your personal actualisation, wish for peace in the world, for the elevation of Humanity, the healing of Mother Earth.
Be an element of change.
