The MOON represents our ‘inner world’, our hidden emotions, desires, our shadow-self, and our dreams. It represents our feelings, our unconscious beliefs, the past and our yin or feminine goddess archetype.
During a New Moon, the moon is roughly sitting between the Earth & the Sun, hence the Sun is shining on the ‘dark side of the moon’, the side of the moon we never see. As a result, we cannot see the moon as the side that faces the Earth is not illuminated.
The New Moon is a great time to set your intentions, write down your goals or begin new projects for the forthcoming cycle. In the darkness of the New Moon you plant the seeds of your heartfelt desires, consciously focusing your Mind/Body/Spirit on the ‘feeling’ of your desires.
Both the Moon & Sun are in the same Zodiac sign during a New Moon, giving an exponential boost or concentration of the energy – which is Pisces energy today! Pisces is the visionary dreamer, the intuitive artist and the mystic healer. Piscean energy awakens compassion, imagination and creativity, dissolving the boundaries that separate us.
Just before the Spring Equinox Full Moon on March 21st, which will be a time of culimination and release as we transistion from winter into Spring, the New Moon in Pisces on March 6th gives us a powerful moment to tune into our intuition and visualize the fresh start we wish to manifest. Without the illumination of the Sun at the time of a New Moon, we are working entirely on our gut-feelings and can work powerful manifestation magic. The possibilities are endless… What new seeds do you wish to plant with the visionary Neptunian energy of Pisces?
I have a little New Moon reading for you with my own “Inner Compass Oracle” deck. You might want to create a little ceremony, like I did. For example, light a candle, hold a favorite crystal or other beloved special object in your hand, burn some incence and turn off your phone. Now close your eyes, breathe and center yourself. Then allow yourself to be guided intutively to the card that you feel most drawn to. It will have the message that will guide and help you during the coming month. If you are drawn to more than one card, or all three of them, that is fine, too. They might all be relevant to you at this time.
Think about your New Moon intentions and pick your card(s)…
And the reveal…
Card 1 (Left) – New Beginnings
“What the caterpillar calls the end, the rest of the world calls a butterfly.” ~ Lao Tzu
Be prepared for something new that wants to be (re)born in your life. Every day is a new beginning. Don’t look at what might have been but look at what can unfold now. If you’re brave enough to say goodbye, life will reward you with a new hello. Take your time to adjust and celebrate the excitement of a new chapter in your life. Meditate with this image to:
• take your time to adjust to endings and new beginnings
• celebrate the excitement of a new chapter opening in your life
• balance your root chakra
Card 2 (Center) – Inner Vision
“Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.” ~Carl Jung
Pisces energy enhances your inner vision and psychic abilities. This card calls you to take your time to look within. This current energy of the Dark Moon in Pisces can cloud your vision. Trust the inner knowing of your deepest truth to cut through doubt and illusion to find your truth.
Use this card to
• help you focus on introspection and visualization
• guide you on your vision quest journey
• activate your Third Eye Chakra
Card 3 (Right) – The Moon
“The moon lives in the lining of your skin” ~Pablo Neruda
The Moon represents our ‘inner world’, our feelings, desires, our shadow-self, fears/worries and our dreams. It represents our unconscious beliefs, the past and our yin or feminine goddess archetype.
That the Moon card showed up in this reading indicates that this New Moon is especially powerful and will reveal its gifts at the full moon by the end of this month. Pay special attention to your dreams – this might be the perfect time to start a moon/dream journal. I also recommend to make a vision board or write down what your wish to manifest in the upcoming cycle.
Use this card to
• channel the magic of the moon’s energy to manifest your dreams
• align with the inner tides of your moods and emotions
• embrace your shadow side
