he year of 2020 has seen a transition from Pisces to Aquarius and with it a shift in our personal alignment to higher spiritual wisdom coupled with our relationship to social systems. In February the powerful Leo Full Moon illuminated the dark hallows shielding blockages that contributed to our suffering as well as stood in our way of stepping into our personal power. This last esbat NM in Pisces allowed us to unpack emotions regarding our path and aspirations.
Keywords for Pisces are:
*Dreams *Creativity *Psychic *Divination *Intuition
In the body, Pisces rules the feet, toes and lymphatic system. (The lymphatic system works primarily to carry infection-fighting white blood cells while also working to rid the body of toxins, waste and other unwanted materials).
Feet are vitally important in carrying us on our path and foot ailments can manifest when we are not walking our truth. Our ability to navigate the terrain becomes compromised and we often ‘lose ground’.
The magical and spiritual workings for the year will focus on balance and our place in the world. January and February had us honing our inspirations, adjusting our ambitions and assessing our material resources. Thusly, seeds sown these last two months will help us navigate our relationship to monetary restrictions while meeting our fiduciary responsibilities Additionally, we have begun the process of digging deep to discover what drives us, what closely held values do we believe at our core and how does this contribute to the creation of our most authentic self as the month of March brings forth a shake-up of society structures. (This can already be seen as a vying for power and position in politics commences with the impending elections).
Themes around the questions of ‘who am I and who do I want to be”? continue to be explored as we work in the challenge of adapting and adopting a way that is integrous and balanced. The seeds we are growing will empower and nourish our authentic selves without giving into the consensus trance of what is right or useful according to society?
This Pisces NM offers us the opportunity to look at our internal landscapes. We are assessing where we currently stand and as with any new moon, where do we go from here?
In order to arrive at an answer, one must assess where we spend the most time physically, emotionally and mentally. All three are driven by wants and needs. Everyone has basic needs requirements, however, it is important to travel beyond survival mode to develop and grow. In order to understand deeply held motives and desires driving our behaviors and actions, we need to look at our needs and wants objectively without judgement. This by no means gives cart blanche to act upon all wants but simply illustrates in a quantifiable way what is truly driving our powers of manifestation in both the concrete realms and the craft working realms.
In an effort to counteract greed, our culture has attempted to differentiate between a want and need, with wants having had a lot of negativity attached to them. Needs are generally focused on survival where wants are frequently seen as wasteful or unnecessary. With these ideas in mind, the next step is to evaluate our relationship to wants; in a lifetime it is next to impossible to single out every defining moment that has shaped how we value ourselves and our relationship to what we want. Many of us have been taught that what we want for ourselves is bad or selfish, wants are all about ego or not being grateful for what one has or, my personal favorite, if you want more for yourself you are ungrateful and therefore it will all be taken away. In reality, how can one ever really know who they are in life without unpacking wants, needs and dreams for good or ill?
We can spend so much time judging the rights and wrongs of needs and wants that we quit dreaming. Evaluating and picking apart every aspect kills it all. Ultimately this Pisces New Moon was about dreaming and creating without judgement, allowing our intuition to be our guide.
Our New Moon Vows were centered around this motif. Between this Pisces New Moon and the Virgo Full Moon, take time to unpack your wants and dream in the healing light of the goddess as we ready ourselves for attracting good vibes in March.
Merry Meet and Blessed Be!
