New Moon in Pisces

The New Moon in Pisces is here, reaching its peak at 12º. This is probably one of the most beautiful New Moons we will be experiencing this year, as both the Sun and the Moon will sit on a close conjunction near the Great Benefic, the planet Jupiter dignified in Pisces, inviting us to find new ways to seek liberation from what restrains our souls. 

This New Moon is happening in the XXVII Mansion, which was known to be inauspicious, yet when the Moon habits this Mansion we are being reminded to be compassionate towards ourselves and others. It is no secret the sign of Pisces is strongly connected to spirituality and divinity. Pisces is the last sign of the Zodiac, representing the evolution the soul experiences after coming full cycle. Though when it comes to Pisces as a sign, there is no such thing as beginnings or endings… as both cycles are infinitely spinning around depending on the perspective we are choosing to take. Pisces represents oneness and the force that moves the cosmos. Everything we are that makes us one with the Universe.

The New Moon in Pisces has a strong influence of the Great Benefic, the planet Jupiter that is reaching its higher potential this year while in its traditional domicile sign, helping us expand our vision by transcending the limitations we encounter in the mundane. I see this New Moon as healing waters flushing away the excess accumulated over the years, the pain, the judgement, the uncertainty, our need for control specific outcomes, connecting us with the divinity that lives within each one of us, a sense of wholeness and interconnectedness, inviting us to surrender to what life is meant to be at this moment in time, knowing that, in the same way a river stream always finds a way to follow its course, so will life. We always arrive at where we are expected.  

I delved into the Jupiter in Pisces cycle in this blogpost where I explained the major significances and manifestations we can expect from Jupiter this year. Though, during this New Moon, we are being guided to connect deeper with ourselves and search for that thing that makes us feel alive. Jupiter is known to expand everything it touches, helping us transcend the limitations we encounter in the mundane world by allowing our minds to tap into higher realms through meditation, reflection, creativity and dreams. While New Moon rituals are mainly focused on setting intentions, I feel this lunation is asking for more than just that. It’s asking us to rewire our vision, and start seeing uncertainty as a blank canvas full of possibilities where we get to create what we desire. The possibilities are endless when we liberate our minds from what restricts our vision, and that is Jupiter in Pisces’ mission this year. Helping humanity remove mental blocks and restrictions, so we can find freedom and live to our maximum potential.


I hope this New Moon helps you to let go of old paradigms, and wake up to your potential – who you truly are when fear, past conditioning and limiting beliefs are removed. Now onto the mini horoscopes for each sign.

*To make the most of your horoscopes remember to read for your rising sign first, then for your Sun sign if your chart is a day chart or your Moon sign if your chart is a night chart.

One small action has the ability to transform your reality, reminding you of the importance of perspective. Our emotions do not represent us, they fluctuate from time to time yet our values and vision is what prevails over time. If you are feeling a bit lost or depleted right now, welcome more rest.

Recognising our own limitations does not mean we are more vulnerable, but it is a sign of our inner strength and shows how much self-awareness there is within you. When we allow others to help us, our perspective becomes richer in meaning and purpose.

    Hi Rory!

    Our Ethereal Orbs Oracle Deck is entirely dedicated to the Mansions of the Moon and their teachings, which includes a PDF guidebook (since it’s a poker-size deck) where you can explore all of the meanings of each Mansion and their connection with Vedic Astrology and the Nakshatras system. On the other hand, I created a blog post a while ago I keep updating from time to time where I recommend Astrology books for all levels and there are some books specifically dedicated to Planetary Magic and the Mansions of the Moon too. You can check the article here:

    Much love,

  • Rory
