As we have become accustomed to every moment of the New Moon we set new goals, we make new projects, we prepare for a new beginning and now, this beginning is under the auspices of the Fishes, a feminine sign, of water, characterized by impressionability, dreaming and universal consciousness.
It’s time to be present, to project positively, to trust and to start those actions that we really find ourselves in.
The detoxification capacity of the body is maximum on the day of the New Moon. Anyone who makes a rule of having a fasting day every time the moon is newwill benefit from many advantages in preventing ailments. Also this day is perfect to start a new activity such as the unlearning of bad habits. Often bad habits are the outward expression of inner energies that need only a new goal to become useful and valuable to us and to other people.
The night before the New Moon is a night of divine transcendence
and if we engage in spiritual activities we can achieve exceptional results that equate to the results obtained after a year of assiduous spiritual practice.
In order for this new beginning to “establish” better in our being and to make the most of this astrological aspect it is advisable to perform a short meditation of about 20 minutes, in its maximum period, 10 minutes before and 10 minutes after it takes place, i.e. between 17:22 and 17:42.
How we meditate:
Sit on a chair with your back straight and your hands resting on the
thighs with our palms down, we aim to completely relax our body,
especially the muscles of the face.
It is necessary to feel the physical body abandoned and immovable. After we have realized the “parking” of the body we we turn our attention inside the body, into the middle of the chest and we imagine that we are adimensional at that level.
Throughout meditation, we aim to feel the complex influence of this moment astral, of the New Moon, when the luminaries, the Sun and the Moon participate in “cosmic wedding” by dividing the same zodical degree. Now the male and the female merge into a perfect unit.
Due to the conjunction between the Sun and the Moon there is a special complementarity of yin-yang energies in nature.
If now, we seek to find a perfect agreement between the will and God’s will, our conscience will pass through exceptional spiritual transformations that will lead to the acquisition of the harmony and inner peace.
By state of consciousness cultivated by different Abheda Yoga techniques, can be certain unfavourable astrological transits. Apart from these methods to be practiced systematically, it can be said that people’s destiny is written in the stars and it is relatively difficult for the ordinary man to manifest free will, independent of the influences of celestial bodies.
The night that precedes this phenomenon of the New Moon, in our case the night from 22 to 23 February 2020, is celebrated in the Eastern spiritual tradition under the name Shiva Ratri.
The night before the New Moon is a night of divine transcendence, and if we engage in spiritual activities we can achieve exceptional results that equate to the results obtained from a year of assiduous spiritual practice.
During this astral moment, it is good to have an easy diet or even to practice Anaharin – black fasting only with water, to reduce the rhythm of daily activities, and to aim to orient ourselves inwards, being aware that this night is particularly effective for the practice of meditation, it gives us the opportunity to achieve thus important spiritual progress.
Aspects specific astrological
Sunday, 23 February – 17:32 – marks the moment of the New Moon in PESTI by the conjunction between the Moon and the Sun in Pisces at grade 4:26 in conjunction with The descendant, in house VII of this astral moment, a house of union, of all forms of partnership on a contractual basis.
A New Moon in Pisces is an invitation to explore infinity, to all that is limitless, is a sign of faith and mysticism; Fish symbolize creative inspiration, imagination, intuition and clairvoyance. All this sign is familiar to him sacrifice, mystery, secret, dreaming, story, hesitation and resignation,can be a land of illusion and betrayal but also of kindness and devotion.
The nature of the sign is a dual nature
like its symbol which represents two fish pointing in opposite directions; this nature determines, on the one hand, by means ofa state of dilation of the soul the aspiration to unite us with the great universal consciousness or, on the other hand, the tendency to create a system of protection and escape in the world of comfort.
The New Moon in Pisces will make us receptive to messages coming down the path of intuition or more subtle senses
it will open our interest to explore all that is paranormal and occult, it will create our need for beauty by moving towards art, photography, music, any discipline of elevation of consciousness, all of which we will quietly seek, feeling the need to retreat as if to a space of our own away from the outside noise.
At the same time being a sign marked by deep emotions
we can feel disoriented, without the ability to concentrate very well, emotions are unstable and we can very easily move from one state to another, going to extremes, can easily accentuate depressive or negative states if we fail to manage these astral inflows or we can be extremely indecisive stagnant in situations that we perceive without exit.
The most appropriate way out is now prayer and the cultivation of humility
so that as we amplify the state of devotion and love for Oneself, the stronger the connection with the Divine will be and will help us to remain centered in the soul without being influenced by external instability. We will not bet on the mental structure because it is possible to lose ourselves in a flow of unclear, uncertain and destabilizing thoughts, it is advisable to bet on a more subtle and inner sense, on an inner and intuitive call that will help us to remain centered in ourselves.
“When I touch the earth in prayer
I have no other purpose but to touch you;
Any words aboutRumi
Gardens, flowers, nightingales, dancing
It’s just pretexts…”
The New Moon in Pisces is house VII, an angular and powerful house, a house that shows us what we lack to be whole,
complete and now the concept of union and collaboration is highlighted, we must learn to grow through relationships amplifying forgiveness, compassion, empathy towards one another; the truth about our relationships is often hidden behind the prejudices, criticisms and analysis with which we are accustomed to evaluate them and this new month urges us to try to look at the other through the eyes of the soul with love and forgiveness and to realize that at the deepest level we are one with him.
We have the chance to access inner peace and the healing of some profound aspects of our being when we receive the other in our hearts no matter how he is, through forgiveness and compassion, because with his acceptance, we will forgive and accept ourselves those parts/aspects of ourselves that we reject because they did not match our image of ourselves.
Mars in Capricorn (in house V of love and creativity) and Uranus in Taurus (in house IX of spirituality, religion and high education) form with the help of the New Moon a minor triangle
which will allow the expression of creative qualities and help us to realize the projects we intend to start. On the one hand we have courage, strength, vitality, hard work to manage current relationships in a constructive way and we can also gain a higher, more original perspective on our partnerships by doing something completely new, nonconformist, totally different from what we have done so far being open to change.
However, Mercury has just entered retrograde motion (as of February 17th) is sounding a great alarm warning us that it is not a very favorable time to start new projects
but rather we can use this period of 3 weeks during the demotion to rethink certain projects or relationships, restore certain collaborations or alliances, make certain corrections to some contracts or modify some contractual situations so that they are useful to us. Moreover, we must be careful to communicate with the life partner because it can be a confusing period in relationships, there may be misunderstandings, words that are not understood correctly or poorly interpreted messages that can create problems.
It is not appropriate to break or give up current relations on the basis of the decisions made during this period
and it is also good to avoid signing contracts as much as possible so as to avoid any misunderstandings. Rather, we can use this time to internalize ourselves more and to try to see from the perspective of the soul what are really the aspects that make our relationship with each other difficult and what we can do to heal them.
This New Moon in Pisces has great potential for personal and relational healing
if we can relate to past and present relationships with wisdom, forgiveness and compassion, if we are prepared to access divine, unconditional love, specific to fish to heal the wounds generated by what we could not give or receive from the other, if we are willing to sink deep into the soul to see if we have forgiven ourselves above all by honoring in our being unconditional love.
New Moon in Pisces can be a moment of revelation, of deep healing, if we allow ourselves, of awakening and release from any kind of external constraints, we can wake up soul through Divine Grace if we aspire with humility and detachment to such Something.
“Are you looking for your soul?Love said – Searching
Then leave your prison.
Leave the wave; join the river and pour into the ocean.
Absorbed by this world
You’ve made her a burden.
Rise above the world –
