Restoring Our Essence of Being – New Moon in Pisces
Art: ROMINA PITTI
“I have thrown from me the whirling dance of mind
And stand now in the spirit’s silence free,
Timeless and deathless beyond creature-kind,
The centre of my own eternity.
I have escaped and the small self is dead;
I am immortal, alone, ineffable;
I have gone out from the universe I made,
And have grown nameless and immeasurable.
My mind is hushed in a wide and endless light,
My heart a solitude of delight and peace,
My sense unsnared by touch and sound and sight,
My body a point in white infinities.
I am the one Being’s sole immobile Bliss:
No one I am, I who am all that is." -Sri Aurobindo
The New Moon in Pisces 2018 is happening the 17th of March at 2:12 PM (CET) or 8:12 AM (EST) at 26° Pisces 53’ just three days before the Vernal or Spring Equinox.
With the call to action from the past Full Moon in Virgo, which was during a time charged with mental activity directed towards progress, now we begin a new cycle, a new Lunation*.
The New Moon in Pisces is a time to slow down the rhythm of activity, to quiet the mind and to focus in in the awareness of unity with existence. A time to renew ourselves from within, because the miracle of life’s rebirth is about to come.
And even though we do not see the Moon this day, she is there, silently reawakening. She feels soft and kind, and with her, all the warming life-force is intensely building up, ready to grow and burst later in Aries. And so, this is a time to experience the softness and kindness from the last degrees of Pisces. With ourselves and with the universe.
Let us briefly navigate through the symbolism of this Lunation. But first, let us welcome the New Moon.
Before going into the symbolism, it is important to note that this New Moon in Pisces marks the upcoming Vernal Equinox (or Spring Equinox), which happens the 20th of March 2018 with the ingress of the Sun into Aries. Therefore, the beginning of spring and the return of the life-force into physical manifestation. Aries, is the sign of the rise of the life-energy and the blooming of nature.
The New Moon, happening at the very end of Pisces reflects an important transition in the quality of our life-energy. By many, Pisces is called the alpha and the omega, the beginning and the end. Pisces is a very special sign in its nature, since it really encompasses all the whirls of emotional awareness and intuitive forces within us during the end of a cycle and the beginning of a new one (Aries follows Pisces, and Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, being Pisces the last one).
