Our final New Moon before the Cosmic New Year is starting off with a bang! There is a build up of tension right now as you are itching for something new and yet it’s taking its sweet Pisces time. This is a unique NM because it has happening just a couple of days before the Spring Equinox. We have an ending and beginning together- it feels like you are looking through your rear window into your front window. New things are coming, but you can’t seem to grasp it yet.
What is New Was Once Old
The New Moon is taking place in the Nakshatra of Purva Bhadrapada- the feet of the funeral cot.
The energy here is asking you to leave behind the old in favour of the new. We need to be looking at the glass as half full and not empty.
A New Moon in Pisces is always tricky because we have foot in the past and one foot in the future. I have noticed people who have this natal placement struggle with change as they are too attached to the past and usually experience things in their life that forces them to detach from their known identity. I happened to be born on a New Moon in Pisces so I definitely know how it feels to be looking both ways at once.
Grace Kelly was born on a New Moon in Pisces in the Nakshatra of Purva Bhadrapada and her life story is a classic example of how these energies can play out. She was a successful Hollywood actress who was forced to give up her career for her new royal title of Princess of Monaco. Her acting career haunted her throughout her royal life as it was believed she never quite got over her retirement. She made the best of her royal career by playing her most important role yet- the role of Princess of Monaco.
Case in point- if you feel a sense of anxiousness about letting go of the past and what awaits you after the Spring Equinox, know that you have created a firm emotional foundation this year with all of the Pisces energy we experienced thus far which will carry you into your next phase.
Rear Window, the Hitchcock suspense film that was career defining for Grace Kelly is the perfect New Moon in Pisces metaphor. It’s helpful to look out your rear window every now because you never know what you might see. Our past informs our present which dictates our future. At the end of the film, James Stewart was able to catch the murderer because he looked out his rear window into the lives of his neighbours. Look back on your past at this New Moon, because it will tell you a lot about what’s to come and will minimize feelings of frustration.
We have some intense action with Mars which shows an inner frustration with how little is manifesting for you right now.
A semi sextile to Uranus suggests looking at things from a different perspective by paying extra close attention to omens at this lunation.
Mars trine Uranus will help to combat some of the frustrations you have by helping you to think differently about your situation.
