On 21st February 22.35pm GMT, we have a New Moon at 2° Pisces 42'. Neptune, in its ruling sign Pisces, conjunct this New Moon tightly, accentuating the theme of spiritualism. In addition, we have Chiron conjunct this New Moon, thus the whole package becomes a new beginning on spiritual healing.
With the Sun, Moon, Neptune, Chiron and Mercury all in compassionate Pisces, this gentle New Moon in Pisces provides the perfect nurturing ground to plant your seeds relating to issues of forgiveness, acceptance and tolerance. Is there someone you have been harbouring bitterness, anger or grudges towards? This is the perfect time to let go and allow the Universe to infuse and cleanse you with some unconditional love. Forgiving the other person is about releasing yourself from the grip of the situation - you are forgiving the person involved, not the action committed (paraphrasing Doreen Virtue's spiritual teaching). If you can take one step further and forgive their actions too, then even better.
However, with Mercury in Pisces oppose Mars retrograding in Mars and Mercury in a T-Square with the nodal axis, it might be easier to think rather than act. Your mind is likely to be full of spiritual thoughts but not have the motivation to do anything about them, thus this is also a good time to do internal work, e.g. meditation, introspection, retreats. On the other hand, the Piscean energy can either bring confusion or inspiration to the mind, clouding your thinking processes or imbuing you with plenty of imagination and creativity.
This New Moon trine Saturn and sextile Jupiter, bringing plenty of opportunities to manifest any realistic and practical goals set under this New Moon. With Jupiter oppose Saturn though, as optimistic as you may feel, the process of letting go and releasing your problems to the Universe can open up cans of worms in your relationships with others, and you may find it a struggle to forgive and forget.
I have this New Moon tightly conjunct my Mars and sextile my MC - time to plan for my next step in my career....
