"Pisces reminds us of the vastness of the Universe and our place within it."~Spirit Daughter | Learn about the new moon in Pisces ~ Find crystals for working with watery Pisces energy ~ Celebrate Losar, Tibetan New Year!
"Pisces reminds us of the vastness of the Universe and our place within it. This energy teaches us that we are one with everything. We are made of the same energy as the Sun, the Moon, and all of the stars. We are also one with our dreams. Everything we want is already ours. Every wish, desire, and vision is in the realm of possibility because energetically, we are already living it on some level. Our job is to break down the barriers within us that prevent us from receiving our highest visions. By working with this Pisces New Moon, we can feel the infinite flow of life and energetically align with our dreams' frequency.
The key to this Moon is to just be, allowing inspiration to come from the Universe. We often feel that we need to do something to manifest our dreams. This Moon teaches us that we do not need to do anything. We merely need to receive guidance from ourselves and the Universe. The energy of Pisces, like the ocean, helps quiet the noise around us, giving way to our inner knowledge...
Along with being and receiving, this Moon is a time to imagine. Pisces inspires us to feel our most creative self. This is a Moon made for daydreams. Give yourself permission to let your mind wander—not down a rabbit hole of anxious thoughts, but to new destinations in your imagination. Allow yourself to dream. Feel your visions coming to life as you see yourself living the life you want to live."
"Our initial taste of freedom, accompanied by feelings of bliss deepen the desire for knowing the ineffable permanently. With new moon at 1 degree Pisces we have an opportunity to embrace the unseen, eternal and infinite presence exactly from right here in this moment. Pisces is the last sign in our journey. It precedes Spring; encompasses all the unseen activity that occurs prior to the eruption of life that happens in March. We are still incubating our intention. And in those anticipatory moments before dawn is boundless potential.
The energy is explosive. The excitement we feel daily is for that which is change, moving us, out of the old conditioning into greater clarity and awareness. It is the excitement of knowing and not knowing simultaneously.
As a mutable sign, a water sign, Pisces is well acquainted with going with the flow. Pisces knows no other way. We can be sure that whatever we desire on a deep level that contributes to a more authentic expression of Self will arise at this time. No matter which area of life we are most attuned to now we will experience an expanded sense of freedom to explore and express that which fulfills us in ways that we may not have experienced yet.
“Pisces, as the last sign of the zodiac, is associated with the theme of letting go, as a precondition for new beginnings. Since both Saturn and Pluto will change signs in a few weeks, the theme of letting go and transition is emphasized on other levels as well.” ~www.astro.com February Quality of Time
Saturn into Pisces March 8 is contradiction. Saturn prompts us to get our ‘ducks in a row’ before we meet the challenges of the outer planets. Saturn is the taskmaster. Pisces is without definition. There is no task. There are no limitations.
How do we reconcile these divergent energies? In Pisces Saturn offers us oars that move us with a sense of responsibility in otherwise vacuous space. We are guided by maturity, a sense of support under our wings as we learn to fly; the nestling gaining courage before taking the great leap of faith."
"New Moons are always a time of new beginnings, and the New Moon in Pisces inspires us to imagine the future we want. Write down what it is you’ve been dreaming of and what’s stopping you from getting it. This is the time when we overcome our fears so that we can begin manifesting the things we’ve fantasized about.
The Pisces New Moon is also a period of profound healing. If you’ve been wounded emotionally or spiritually, this is when you will focus on your regrets, your anger, your insecurities, and your doubts. This is a good time to meditate or take a walk. These moments of solitude will allow you to go within and reconnect with yourself so you can patch up old wounds that have been lingering."
The influence of Pisces brings submerged feelings and knowledge to the surface of consciousness. Amethyst is the perfect stone for increasing intuitive receptivity, and helping with dream recall. Claim the knowledge that is already yours, by meditating with Amethyst..

The word Losar is derived from two words, “Lo” meaning “year” and “sar” meaning “new.” For centuries, Losar, Tibetan New Year has been a time of celebration, a time for families to come together and be thankful for their blessings, for religious faith to be honored in prayer and a time when neighbors and friends greet each other with “Losar Tashi Delek!” or (Best wishes for an auspicious New Year!”).
This painting of the Eight Auspicious Symbols of Tibetan Buddhism is by 15 year-old Shaokyi Amdo, a student of the Capital Area Tibetan Association’s weekend Tibetan language school for Tibetan-American children living in the Washington DC metro area. The eight symbols are very popular in Tibet and represent the eight precious offerings made by the gods to Shakyamuni Buddha upon his enlightenment. ~https://savetibet.org/
This year, Losar falls on Tuesday 2/21. This is the first day of the first month of the Tibetan lunisolar calendar. One important tradition includes hanging new prayer flags, Wind Horse flags, which carry the good wishes to all corners of the earth on the winds. Prayer flags are hung up to spread the auspicious wishes on the winds. These Windhorse flags usually have the wind horse symbol (a horse with jewels and flames on his back flying through the air), with mantras.
Paradise Found contributor Rebecca Zendejas wrote a wonderful article last year about how she has incorporated the tradition of hanging prayer flags into her life:
"Several years ago I began observing the festival of Losar, the Tibetan Lunar New Year by ‘planting’ prayer flags outside the entrance to my home. They could be seen each time I left and returned; while I prepared a meal or washed dishes; as I worked from my desk… several times a day I would pause and enjoy their movement in the breeze..."
