The constellation of Pisces carries with it a type of energy that, much like that of Cancer, makes one awash with feelings either of pure bliss or extreme anguish. As no sign's influence is purely good or exclusively evil, it too can be of one kind or another in equal measure - creating an empathic and giving nature, or giving birth to an overly sensitive and borderline escapist individual. Hypersensitivity in either case is the root of all emanations of the astrological sign of Pisces.
What the New Moon in Pisces Will Be About
New Moon in the sign's territory tends to shine a light on the more challenging aspects of this constellation. It brings a focus onto excessive delicacy and proclivity towards melancholy. This type of introspective hypersensitivity can extend quite a bit enabling some members of the sign to possess deep intuitive abilities and sometimes even experience visions. It is no secret that the previous era - encompassing all of the Medieval period as well as the time of the Inquisition - was the Age of Pisces, of strong religious fervor, of feeling, of mystics and saints, of visions and miraculous apparitions.
Separating Intuition, Dreams and Illusions for the Pisces New Moon
This is exactly the sort of energy that swirls around the with the New Moon in Pisces. It can, however, also bring us into the land of illusion. Are we a 100% sure that what we're seeing is real? How can we trust our supposed intuitive powers? Is every voice we claim to "hear" really to be trusted? And, on a less metaphysical level, is every infatuation we fall into the next love of our life? Is it really so intense or is it yet another delusion? How can we know? How do we make sure we are not being tricked into madness by our very own mind?
This is the sort of constant emotional tension that we might have to deal with during the New Moon in Pisces. Uncalled for visions, emotions more intense than before, and the overall inability to see situations for what they truly are. The problems may arise due to our (temporary and reversible) inability to tell reality and fantasy apart. A lot of what we will experience will be an illusion, a mirage, a projection of an irrational part of our psyche we sometimes escape to in order to run away from the drab reality of the physical world. Our escapism can and will backfire.
It is precisely the real world we sometimes try so hard to escape that we still have to deal with on a daily basis. Instead of shutting ourselves off in a monastery and devoting all our time to mystical visions, maybe we instead might want to bring our feelings, dreams and imagination into it, into the realm of the living, and enrich it. Everything - human feelings and psychic powers included - is better when enjoyed together. Write, paint, create, share your inner world with those around you - you might be surprised at what kind of people this will attract and how much more colorful and emotionally rich your world may become.
