The moon goes dark on March 2, bringing us a sensitive and creative new moon in Pisces at 12:35 p.m. EST. The mutable water sign and last sign of the zodiac is plugged into the collective unconscious and the world of dreams, making this lunation potent for the most magical aspect of astrology: manifestation.
New moons are always in the same sign as the sun, resetting the monthly lunar calendar while creating the ideal conditions for setting intentions. As the new moon transits Pisces, the empathic water sign’s energy can help you boldly tap into the deeper parts of your subconscious for some serious psychic and spiritual overhaul.
The boost from Jupiter is Pisces is not to be underestimated. Jupiter is the zodiac’s great benefic, adding a sense of expansion and magnification to whatever it touches. Jupiter is in its domicile in the water sign, meaning that the already lucky planet is ready to go even bigger. Whatever you manifest with this transit, Jupiter is on your team playing the coach, the cheerleader, and the generous team owner with deep pockets. Make the most of it.
There’s also a little surprise in the form of a sextile with Uranus. While the planet is associated with unpredictability and upheaval, this positive aspect to the new moon in Pisces is more of an innovative vein. Pisces is a sign that’s able to adapt and shift with changing circumstances — think of how water is shapeless until contained — so take that to heart and try your best to go with the flow.
Fall asleep thinking of a creative project or mantra, and perhaps the answers you’re looking for will play out during your R.E.M. cycle. Jot down key dream notes when you wake up including feelings, locations, people — even the silliest details are worth acknowledging. Try not to look at dream interpretation websites and instead see what the details provoke in your waking brain. Let the Pisces intuition be your guide.
As the final sign of the zodiac, Pisces has seen it — and felt it — all. Lean into the mystery! See where the new moon lands in your birth chart by reading your rising sign on NYLON’s March 2022 horoscope.
