The New Moon in Pisces (10º18′ ) is one that carries a heavy spiritual message of sacrifice but it can also be bloody on the material realm. Old ways and old rules need to be released and people may not want to release. The Sun and Moon will both be in Pisces, conjunct Neptune and Chiron also in the same sign. This is going to bring some super sensitivity among people. There may be some harshness and even violence as a result. Look at what is happening in the Ukraine.
Neptune is at Pisces 6: A Parade Of Army Officers In Full Dress. This can bring out military might, shows of force through military parading in the street or simply a show of force in the midst of wounds. Right now we have a violent situation in the Ukraine, with both Russia and the USA watching closely. There is danger around people wanting to take charge, blow their own horns and bully others. But look at what is also there. A woman, in simple dress, without battle gear, is able to walk right up to battle-dressed soldier in full gear and face them — even to touch their defensive shields. That is POWERFUL. It makes you think of the power of Mary, the mother of Jesus.
Preparing for this new beginning will involve releasing the past and having compassion for both what is to be released and what, going forward, is to be embraced. It is a New Moon about connection on a level that we are not always comfortable with nor aware of in our material and physical world. However, it is the embracing of the spiritual that will bring and enlightenment of mind that will expand your life.
The lead up to the New Moon, the karmic energy that is to be released, is the Moon at Pisces 10: An Aviator In The Clouds. The day or so before the New Moon on Saturday, hermit yourself away. Find quiet spaces and places where you can empty your mind and take in the Big Picture. The peace and tranquility, the time to fantasize, the opportunity to dream, the gentle ability to see the best in people and situations, is what you need before this New Moon in Pisces.
Avoid escapist methods such as drinking, taking drugs (OTC or prescription). It takes courage to deal with the spiritual. The spiritual are not weak as some like to think; but rather brave because they dare to go into the darkness and face it. Under this new moon you are to find the balance between allowing the world to be too much with you and delusions. When you are quiet and unhurried, you can allow insights and understandings to rise to the surface from deep within. You can see things you did not see with all the “noise of the world.
The New Moon in Pisces
The pieces of genius, healing and inspiration that we are blessed with in this world do not come as a result of all the noise, They come as a result of delving into the unconscious, the subconscious the spiritual and the intangible. It means we are not in the limelight, not meeting the social expectations of being outwardly busy. It means taking a different approach. If we want to accomplish the goals that are truly worthy, we must take a different path.
I am familiar with Pisces/Virgo energy because of my many placements in these two signs. These natal placements in my chart give me gifts as a naturally strong intuitive, a healer, priest, spiritual director and naturally strong intuitive. It has taken me some significant time and experience in life to get where I am spiritually. Walking a spiritual path, a path of illumination, is a peculiar path that many do not ant to take, but later come seeking the benefits of it. This is a path that requires leaving behind emotions, physical and material needs while not being a martyr.
Some are called to walk this path all their lives; some are called for a short period of time; most of us are asked to integrate this into our lives on a regular basis as part of being well-balanced people. Many of us walk a treadmill, going in the same circles on the physical plane. It takes discipline, determination, an open mind, focus and living in the now in order to walk spiritually. From there you gain understanding that brings compassion and enlightenment or illumination.
Everyone will be feeling the energy, although not everyone will recognize it for what it is. The Neptune/Chiron energy will highlight the wounds we have that are not healed. Someone or something will provoke it into life. Those of us not directly experiencing a wound will be made painfully aware of someone else’s pain and be called to have compassion. We will be called to sacrifice something under this New Moon in Pisces and it will bring blessings to you life as well as to the person for whom you sacrifice.

The Goal of the New Moon
This New Moon in Pisces is not about being a martyr. It is not about giving out of nothing. It is about figuring out what resources you have and giving from those in order to better connect with those around you. It takes a journey on the spiritual level to do this. The degree following the New Moon in Pisces illuminates how this can be done: Pisces 12: An Examination Of Initiates In The Sanctuary Of An Occult Brotherhood.
Open your mind to alternative spiritual paths than you have walked before. Explore that which you do not know and do not understand. Ask questions and be open to the answers. Be open to other’s spiritual path. I have had some wonderful conversations lately with people from other faiths and my mind has been expanded. The
