This New Moon is at 23 degrees and 4 minutes of Pisces and occurs at 4:21 AM Central Time March 13, 2021. The root energy in the date of this Moon is 12–The Hanged Man and Neptune energy. It also speaks to Empress and Venus energy. Thus, we have a real emphasis of Venus/Neptune energy as these two planets also blend with a conjunction on the same day. This New Moon is ruled by Jupiter in Aquarius and feels linked to spirituality, creativity, taking it easy and connecting with others
Set your intentions after 4:21 AM Central and within 8 hours of that time. Check in at the 1st Quarter Moon in Pisces on December 10, 2021 to see what is manifesting as a result of your intentions you set today.
The Full Moon in Pisces on September 10, 2022 should bring clarity as to the meaning and purpose of the intentions you set with the New Moon March 13, 2021. Something will come to light or reveal itself around the themes and area of your chart you set intentions in.
The 3rd Quarter Moon phase on June 10, 2023 will start to bring a close to this cycle. This is the Harvest period where fruits of this cycle manifest. It’s the winding down of this phase and a time to reap what you’ve sown or set in motion with the New Moon intentions you set today.
Another consideration is the Sabian Symbol for 24 degrees Pisces which is, “An Inhabited Island.” This is about our ability to function independently no matter the circumstances and our ability to secure needed resources in what might initially feel like a hopeless situation. The idea of finding creative ways to cultivate what’s needed is key. When circumstances force us to come up with new ways of doing things, our life improves. This is about thinking outside the box and coming up with innovative solutions. We can look to the ruler of this New Moon, Jupiter in Aquarius, to help with this as Aquarius is an archetype that is inventive and progressive. Where have you felt stuck? What can you do differently to achieve what you want or need? This is a creative New Moon and holds the potential in finding solutions to what seems impossible by re-thinking or inventing a new way to do something.
Other things to consider when setting intentions are the House topics of Pisces in your chart as well as the symbolism of Pisces. This archetype is compassionate, imaginative, creative, tolerant and spiritual.
Here are some practical tips to help work with this New Moon:
- Within 8 hours of the Pisces New Moon on March 13, 2021 (again, the time is 4:21 AM if you’re in the Central Time Zone) jot down your New Moon Wishes in your journal. I like to keep a separate “Moon Journal” for the entire 27 month process.
- I usually write at least three wishes or intentions but no more than 10 which tends to dilute the energy. It’s also important to hand write your wishes.
- Find the area of your chart where Pisces rules and tailor your thoughts around the themes of this house as well as the archetype of Pisces. This allows you to work with this energy and makes it personal to you
A good reference book for setting New Moon intentions is, “New Moon Astrology” by Jan Spiller. Spiller outlines themes for each zodiacal sign as well as guidelines for setting intentions.
