New Moon in Pisces | Sunday 3/10/24, 1:01 a.m. PT

"The Pisces New Moon marks the final New Moon of the astrological year. It allows us to find closure from the past, including our past wounds. It also opens the doorway to an expanded consciousness, one that can feel the future we are about to live." ~Spirit Daughter

I dive deep into the essence of things,
Taking the space I need to daydream, process, and intuit.
When change comes, I visualize the possibilities before me,
Flowing and growing with the natural currents of life.

New Moon in Pisces | Sunday 3/10/24, 1:01 a.m. PT

"The Pisces New Moon marks the final New Moon of the astrological year. It allows us to find closure from the past, including our past wounds. It also opens the doorway to an expanded consciousness, one that can feel the future we are about to live. This Moon can help you understand the vastness of your energy and your potential. It’s a time to feel your interconnectedness and know that everything you desire is already yours. All you have to do is unblock yourself and receive the life that is already yours. You do not need to control every detail; instead, hold the vision of what you write today. Feel it, be it, and believe that it is already real. Then, allow for it to happen by following the flow of your life."

~Spirit Daughter

"One of the highlights of this coming week occurs on Sunday, March 10, when the Sun and Moon align at 20°16' Pisces. While a Pisces New Moon always enhances our emotional, spiritual, and psychic sensitivity, these qualities are further accentuated due to Luna's conjunction with ethereal Neptune, the planet of Divine Love, and her sextile to consciousness-raising Uranus, the planet of Higher Mind."

~Pam Younghans, North Point Journal

Tips for Dream Journaling

Keep a notebook or pad of paper right by your bed, easily reached in the dark, with a pencil or pen, and possibly a flashlight. Record impressions, sensations, images, words, feelings, such as...

~Weather, foliage, atmospheres & cosmos
~Themes (rushing, being lost, exploring, abandonment, dancing)
~Moods and senses
~Rooms or places, unknown spaces
~Emotions within the dream
~People, archetypes or obscure or out-of-picture figures
~Dreams within dreams or memories, or the collapsing of reality and dream-space
~Powers or lack thereof
~How you feel upon waking up
~Magical influences and abilities
~Desires, vices, hunger, needs
~Recurrent dreams (are they the same, or slightly different?)
~Words (spoken or read or even felt) that recur or that stand out
~Time in which the dream occurred (night, day, during a moon phase or when the moon is a ~Certain sign or during an astrological season)

~Lisa Marie Basile, author of Light Magic For Dark Times
