Pisces is the boundless sign of etheric communion and sublime unification.

Pisces correlates with unconditional love, hidden influences, devotion, institutions, charity, Spiritual ideals, secrets, dissolution, compassion, the collective unconscious, surrender, sleep, illusion, escapism, addiction, imagination and dreams.
This mutable water sign dwells in tides of the ever changing nature of existence. It is the last in the zodiac, where everything that has come before is cleansed and renewed for what is becoming. Emotions, intuition, fantasy and the hidden realms are tangible when the Moon & Sun meet in Pisces. While the lines between reality and imagination may be blurred, there are universal mysteries waiting to be revealed.
The ruler of this lunation, Neptune, is also in the sign of Pisces, giving more potency to all Piscean themes. Neptune is the planet associated with dissolving boundaries, imaginative power, tuning to the invisible, smoke and mirrors. It softens the denseness of reality, allowing glimpses of what abides beyond the veil. It also plays a role in diminishing physical constructs for better or worse. To make the most of this Moon, be gentle, be still and be open to transcendent truths.
Pisces New moon conjuncts Saturn in Aquarius, offering a refining dose of far-sighted realism to this visionary lunation. This aspect can help contain and ground the fluctuations of imagination. For some of us, it can be all too easy to loose our way in a Piscean sea. This conjunction can act like a compass that points to ones true north. Rather than just dreaming into the future, Saturn provides the ability to draw up the map.
Saturn will be moving into Pisces in early March, and it’s involvement with this Moon is like a preliminary appetizer preparing us for the 2 year Saturn in Pisces main corse.
Venus is at the last degree of Pisces at the time of this New Moon in a separating conjunction with Neptune.
