The moon starts her new cycle in Pisces on Monday, February 20th at 2:05 am ET.
The time of the new moon is when the Sun and Moon meet at the same sign and ask us to take initiating actions such as planting seeds of intention. As the moon waxes (grows) so will your intention.
Each NEW MOON offers an opportunity to take charge of our lives by tapping into the potent power in the cosmos to solidify our intentions, goals, and wishes in reality.
When the New Moon is in Pisces there is a collective need to commit oneself to a dream or ideal and work towards its realization. Pisces is a water sign which corresponds to emotions, feelings, and intuition. The water image for Pisces is the ocean makes me think of the iceberg model where 10% of the iceberg (the tip) floats above water and 90% is hidden beneath the surface like our feelings, emotions, and intuition.
What are the Pisces Tarot Cards?
The Moon card represents Pisces in Tarot. The most mystical sign of the zodiac. It is comfortable in the deep waters of intuition and spiritual transformation. It is changeable and reveals itself in bits and pieces and can also hide the darker side of its nature.
In tarot, when the Moon appears it is about imagination, creativity, introspection, and the cycles of life. On the flip side it is about deception and illusion.
The Hanged Man
Neptune the planet of spiritual and inner psychology is the ruler of Pisces and in Tarot is assigned the Hanged Man Card. Both Neptune and the Hanged Man are associated with surrender and letting go to bring out a change in perspective.
In tarot, when The Hanged Man appears it represents letting go and surrendering concerns to the Universe. Letting go, sacrifice, and surrender brings about change in perspectives.
The Knight of Cups
The knights embody transitional and adaptable mutable energy. They also combine fire energy (passion & creativity) with the energy of their suit, in this case Water (emotional and imaginative). The Knight of Cups sees the world through his emotions and reflects his wishes and hopes to those around him.
Eight of Cups - Lord of Abandoned Success
Nine of Cups - Lord of Material Happiness
Ten of Cups - Lord of Perfected Success
