New moons are the time for new beginnings and planning for the next 6 months, when the full moon will rise in the same sign and complete our journey. This new moon will rise in Pisces – a sign known for its compassion, intuition, and wisdom - so expect to be in tune with these energies.
We would typically advise a new moon ritual of setting intentions and taking time for introspection, however, this new moon arrives while Mercury is in retrograde. This is typically not a good time for plans, contracts, and communications. This is a great opportunity to go with the flow. Promote cleansing and positive energy, pay close attention to your feelings and see how they change until Mercury goes direct on March 9. At this point, you can begin planning and manifesting your goals for the next 6 months with a clear heart.
Our new moon "go with the flow" ritual:
1. Light the Signature Candle Coven. These three candles contain cleansing elements of palo santo, cedar, thyme and patchouli. They will help promote a safe space and a reign in positivity. The glow of the candlelight has been known to be calming and can help bring about total relaxation. If you haven't tried burning these three candles together, you're in for a real treat!
2. Focus on goals from past manifestations. While it's not a good time to seek out any major changes, continuing to pursue things that you've been working on will help you to continue to go with the flow.
3. Avoid making any commitments. This time in Pisces can have us thinking about love. This is not the time to make any new relationship changes - double down on going with the flow, spend quality time with friends and loved ones, and wait for Mercury to go direct before defining any new relationships.
