On Feb. 23rd, at 10:32am EST, the Moon aligns with the Sun in 4.5 degrees of Pisces; this marks the beginning of a new Moon cycle. Feel free to also watch my New Moon video on the subject. (will be posted by Feb.19th)

This New Moon chart has a lot of layers and we are definitely dealing with lots of feminine energies for the next four weeks: 4 planets in Pisces (including a Retrograde Mercury), 4 planets in Capricorn, and one planet in Taurus. That’s 9 out of 10 planets in feminine signs, and that doesn’t include the Moon Nodes, which are also in feminine signs (Cancer/Capricorn) 😉

As you can imagine, this invites us to focus on our inner processes, our ability to receive, our connection to intuition, and our desire to contribute to life from a heart centered and grounded place. Our emotional and physical bodies are giving us the information we need right now, to get connected to ourselves and the things we want to contribute out there in the world. If we listen carefully we will also understand much better what pace is required to accomplish things without overwhelming ourselves.

Since Neptune rules Pisces and Saturn rules Capricorn, these two planets play an important role in this New Moon chart. We will talk a little bit about them in a moment. But first, let’s talk about Pisces, to see what this New Moon is all about:

Do you have your Ascendant or any personal planets in 2-7 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. Intentions are 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 10:32am on Feb. 23rd and 9:12am on Feb. 25th (New York-time)
