Welcome to a New Moon in Pisces! This new moon peaks today, February 20th. The energy right now is about tuning in and listening. Not forcing anything, just being in flow. Your intuition is your best friend right now! This is a beautiful time to explore our subconscious and pay attention to what is coming through in the dream state. Keeping a notebook next to your bed could be very helpful to remember your dreams. Often times we forget our dreams within minutes of waking. So be sure to write them down immediately upon waking and explore their meanings.
Paying attention to your dreams is just one way of receiving guidance. Another way is practicing meditation. This New Moon in Pisces is the perfect time to start a meditation practice. Find a quiet place where you will not be disturbed. Even just a few minutes a day of tuning into yourself will be beneficial. Remember that you just need to BE. You do not need to shift or change anything, you just need to be open and willing to receive. A meditation practice may take a little time to get used to. Often at first we sit there trying to meditate and receive but we end up thinking about to-dos or all kinds of things. That is okay. It gets easier. Keeping a notebook handy is great for jotting those things down so you can once again clear your mind. With practice you will be able to quiet your mind and tune into your intuition. You will become receptive to flashes of insight, guidance and inner knowings. Eventually you will have this inner space you can easily sink into whenever needed. A receptive place of calm and peace.
Many of us go through life in a reactive state (myself included!). This can make it much harder to tap into our intuitive state. A remedy for this is to spend time calming the nervous system down, shifting into a much more receptive state. Meditation and breathing exercises, spending time in nature, grounding, all of these help to accomplish that. Start making these things a priority during this New Moon. It will be a beautiful gift to yourself. One that may change your life entirely!
TRUST and FLOW are very important themes for this New Moon. As you set your new moon intentions, don’t worry about how they will come to be. Just allow the universe to do what it does best. You do not need to direct the flow, you just need to go with the flow. Trusting that things are being put into being on your behalf, for your highest and best good. Trust that you are being guided and held by the Universe. What if the Universe can design it all way better than you can even imagine? Way better than what you would even have asked for? Now is the time to trust and receive.
Brightest blessings this New Moon in Pisces!
