Ritual: Pisces New Moon
Pisces New Moon: Sat. March 1, 2014, 3:00 am EST,
Sun and Moon at 10.39 Pisces
Ground your body, clear your mind...
Become aware of your body. Notice how gravity holds and connects you to earth. It’s as though your body is an ancient stone temple—solid, strong, secure. Sanctify this temple. Imagine a priestess is pouring sacred water and scattering rose petals, all the way down, from your head to your toes. Any anxiety or negativity washes away. Notice the thoughts and feelings leaving the temple—your judgments, your distracted mind, your worried heart. Be sure to honor them. Give each a smile and a piece of cake as it departs.
Draw a circle of protection, call in blessings...
Visualize a ring of fragrant flowers surrounding you, protecting you. Know that you are safe and relaxed. Breathe deeply. Feel the power of the Sun and Moon pouring into your circle. The energy of Pisces is gathering in your circle. Feel this natural expression of your unity with everything. Through Pisces, you connect to your higher mind via dreams. You connect with your culture through the imagery of the collective unconscious. You respond to life with imagination, poetry, music, and spiritual compassion. Through Pisces, you touch subtle energies and vast mysteries. This is a potent and sometimes overwhelming stuff. To meet it properly, you are encouraged to quiet your mind, calm your ego, and allow yourself to safely dissolve into higher realities. When you don't prepare yourself adequately, you may experience the negative qualities of Pisces: addiction, deception, illusion, manipulation, victimization, and disillusion. But even these experiences can be a doorway to enlightenment. With addictions, for example, if you see yourself reaching for a drink, a cigarette, a credit card, you can name this for what it truly is: your desire to experience cosmic bliss. When you realize that this resides within, not in outer substances, that's when you'll touch the Pisces gift of enlightenment.
- I use my fantasies to inspire
- I feel the bliss of subtle energies
in and around me.
- My heart breaks open with divine compassion.
- I can be sensitive and
keep my boundaries strong.
- When life gets confusing, I trust all
is working towards the highest good.
- My mind is clear. Daily meditation
is my special treat.
- Whenever I need angelic assistance, I ask.
- I am a channel for spiritual healing as
I travel through my daily life.
Allow seed intentions to form...
Your intentions for this cycle are gathering. You may already know what you wish to accomplish. Or you may not. Trust that all will unfold perfectly in time. Know that this brief ritual has aligned you with spirit. Now ask your heart if it has a closing message for you. This may come in words or as a picture, perhaps as a body sensation or sound. Give yourself time to receive this message. Digest it. Write it down. Then, in gratitude to yourself and spirit, return to normal awareness. Place a symbol of your Pisces New Moon message on your altar.
