The New Moon in Pisces: Setting Intentions for a New Beginning
All up in your feels? But in a really good way?
Today, on February 20, 2022, we will experience a New Moon in Pisces. As one of the most mystical and spiritual signs of the zodiac, this new moon is a powerful opportunity for setting intentions and manifesting our deepest desires.
The Pisces new moon is all about tapping into our intuition, connecting with our emotions, and embracing the unknown. Pisces is a water sign, and as such, it represents our emotional depths and the subconscious mind. Under this new moon, we may feel more sensitive, creative, and imaginative than usual, which I absolutely love! It's a time to dive deep into our souls and connect with our innermost desires.

Here is a holistic new moon ritual you can practice within the next 3 days:
New Moon Meditation
Meditation is a powerful tool for connecting with our inner selves and manifesting our desires. The new moon is a particularly potent time for meditation, as it allows us to tap into our subconscious mind and connect with our intuition.
Find a quiet and comfortable space where you won't be disturbed.
Sit in a comfortable position and close your eyes.
Take several deep breaths, in through your nose, and exhale through your nose trying to make your exhale twice as long as your inhale. Allow your body to relax and your mind to quiet.
Think about the theme that is being highlighted in your chart, identity, career, your mental health, etc, and envision fertile soil in front of you. Feel your bare feet sinking into the soft, fertile soil as you place the seeds of what you would like to experience into the ground, covering them with the soft soil with your hands. Set your intentions for the new moon cycle and visualize them as if they have already happened and feel the emotions that come with them.
Spend three to several minutes in this state, allowing yourself to fully connect with your intentions and desires. Allow yourself to feel how it would feel to have already manifested it.
When you're ready, slowly open your eyes and take a few deep breaths. Carry the energy of your intentions with you throughout the day.
In conclusion, the Pisces new moon is a powerful opportunity to connect with our inner selves, set intentions, and manifest our deepest desires.
