Waxing Moon in Pisces

The Moon swims in Pisces today, squaring Mars in Sagittarius and forming an inconjunct angle with Saturn in Libra.

Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac, associated with completing, endings, and releasing. What do we experience when the Moon moves through Pisces in the waxing half of her cycle? How does the energy of Pisces support us as we grow our intentions?

The challenging aspects with Mars and Saturn hold the key. Mars is all about action, and he's in Sagittarius, a Fire sign that is expansive, adventurous, and devoted to learning. Saturn is all about work and effort, in Libra, sign of creativity and balance. These planets challenge us to expand our awareness of the Pisces Moon and what she holds, which includes sensitivity to our own emotions, empathy for others, and intuitive and psychic connections of all kinds.

Where, in these areas of intuitive awareness, do we tell ourselves, "I can't do that ... other people have those senses, but not me"? Where have we held back from exploring new things in our spiritual path, telling ourselves we don't have the skill, awareness, gift (...fill in whatever word you use here...) to go deeper? Mars and Saturn push us to open our intuitive senses and take the next step.

From the other side, the Pisces Moon reminds us that sometimes the best action is not doing. In manifestation work with the New Moon, we craft our wishes and intentions carefully, finding words that resonate with our hearts ... and let them go. We ask, then allow the universe to unfold.

As we approach the culmination of this waxing phase, less than a week from the Full Moon, Pisces reminds us that pushing too hard, holding too tight, watching too closely, can interfere with the transformations we initiated at the New Moon. The Pisces Moon reminds us to breathe and be still.

Today's Moon, looking for a dynamic balance with Mars and Saturn, reminds us we are more than we imagine. Coming into that wider, deeper self is sometimes best achieved by going with the flow and letting it happen.
