We move into the Pisces zodiac period on February 20th. How does Pisces effect each one of us while we are under its rule? In what ways does its energy push and pull us even if we fall under another zodiac sign? Pisces will hold meaning for each one of us just as the other signs have their specific purposes for us throughout the year by helping to guide and influence us on subtle level. People who fall under Pisces are highly intuitive and deeply connected to their spiritual sides so it’s a good time to tap into higher realms with Pisces energy coming in. You might also find yourself being more selfless and compassionate with the fish at the helm. Allow this sign to make you more accepting and able to adapt and see where that takes you. Allow your imagination and creativity to flourish, just beware of indecisiveness or using it as a place to escape. Pisces are suckers for romance and they know how to make their partner feel wanted. Maybe you could use this energy to enliven your love life.
The New Moon falls on the 26th of this month and it happens to coincide with an Annular Solar Eclipse. The New Moon is when Native Americans hold Manifestation Meditations with the assistance of the moon’s vibration. They do not manifest just any old thing, like a new car, but rather something that is inline with their life’s path. It could still be something very enjoyable, it just needs to align with one’s higher self. A meditation is performed in order to access Spirit, your guides, and your higher self to determine what is best to bring into your life. Then you go about the process of setting intentions and sending them out to the Universe. A crystal Grid is utilized by many and I as a Crystal Healer set up grids to my meditations. The energetic imprint of the crystals within the grid may be connected to the planets affecting us at the time, the zodiac, or manifesting itself. The center stone acts as a generator and it aids in sending our intentions out to the universe. I also use grid cloths as backgrounds which are imprinted with Sacred Geometry.
What is a New Moon and why do we manifest on it? A New Moon is just that, it’s the beginning of a New Moon period. It’s when the Sun and the moon both sit in the same zodiac sign. This makes the power of that zodiac sign much stronger and you may notice Pisces characteristics more strongly. The New Moon also represents creation. Think about it, it’s the merging of Sun and Moon energies. You could say that the moon represents the emotions and we need to throw a lot of emotion into what we are trying to manifest in order to manifest it. The sun is all about fire and that fire energy kindles our emotions so they can manifest on the earth plane.
What the heck is an Annular Solar Eclipse and what makes this time so powerful? This is when the sun and moon are in perfect line with the earth. The moon appears to be a bit smaller than the sun. The sun ends up looking like a ring of fire around the moon. A normal New Moon period according to Native American Tradition lasts for 9 days. There are the 4 days before the New Moon, the New Moon itself, and 4 days following. They feel this is the strongest period for manifesting because you have the help of Sun and Moon energies. When you have a Solar Eclipse it lengthens the time period all the ways until the next New Moon. Although the eclipse will not be visible in our area we can still take advantage of it, energetically speaking.

Don’t freak when I mention Retrograde because it’s not necessarily a bad thing. All planets go into it and it does have it’s positive aspects. Jupiter went into Retrograde earlier this month and it will be there until June. Jupiter is the planet of ideas and going retrograde is all about going introspective. So it’s a great time to analyze our visions and ideals. This is so beneficial when manifesting. Venus will be going into retrograde in the next few weeks which does not happen annually, only about every 18 months or so. It’s not only the time for new love, but finding the right love. The combo of Jupiter, Venus, and the Piscean New Moon energy are perfect for this. Maybe your next great love is what you’re ready to find. Be sure to connect and set a few intentions on the New Moon. Happy Manifesting!
