On March 4 at 12:46 p.m. PST / 3:46 p.m. EST, the Moon begins a new cycle with the New Moon in Pisces. New Moons signify rebirth, beginnings, a clean slate, the start of a new cycle. This new moon highlights Pisces qualities (imagination, compassion, enlightenment, sacrifice) and 12th house themes (secrets, subconscious, addictions, institutions).

Pisces is natively ruled by Neptune, who is now in the last degrees of Aquarius after being in the sign since 1998 and the North Node (life path) is harmoniously aligned with Neptune on the day of the Pisces-New Moon. In Pisces, the Moon intuitive, spiritual, insightful, hopeful and attuned to the energies beyond the physical and mental realms.

The Pisces-New Moon (blending of heart & soul) occurs when a majority of the transiting planets are also in Pisces, along with the Sun (soul) and Moon (heart) -- Mars (motivation/action), Mercury (thought/communication) and Uranus (revolutionary/awakening). With so many planets in Pisces during this New Moon, getting in touch with our 'higher' self is a great way to make use of this New Moon phase.

Whether it's tapping into the spiritual self, our intuitive abilities, being more compassionate or giving more focus to causes/people outside our own personal world, let this New Moon in Pisces inspire us to seek the truth that lies deep within our heart/soul and let that truth become integrated to how we live life daily.

Elsewhere in the sky during this New Moon, the North Node (life path), who will have newly entered Sagittarius, aligns with Neptune (enlightenment) and Uranus (awakening). For those who find themselves at a turning point in their lives, this New Moon phase is an ideal period to discover/re-discover inner drives/desires that may be essential in figuring out what your next move may be or in gaining insight on what lies ahead.

This new moon occurs at 14 degrees of Pisces. Those born within 3 days of March 4 or September 6; or have planets/house angles around 14 degrees of mutable signs may feel the effects of this new moon stronger than most.
