Traditionally, the astrological New Moon is a time for a new beginning. When the New Moon falls in Pisces on March 2nd, 2022, however, it has completed one cycle of the zodiac, so there is a sense of spiritual rebirth here.
In astrology, the Pisces New Moon is a window into our current spiritual health and wellbeing. If we are doing well with our spiritual growth, this can be a joyous New Moon, with a huge sense of optimism and magic.
However, if we have not been paying attention to our spiritual needs and instead obsessing over material matters, this New Moon can bring nightmares, sleep disturbances, unsettling paranormal experiences and a sense of guilt or sacrifice.
Pisces energy is extremely compassionate and very gentle, so this is a good New Moon for getting in touch with our hearts. Working with charity in some way is a good use of this energy, as is extending compassion and understanding towards those who may have hurt you. The Pisces New Moon is a perfect moment for forgiveness – and that includes forgiving yourself.
Pisces as a zodiac sign is known to be easily swayed or bent to the will of others, but the New Moon in Pisces helps otherwise gentle people to take a stand and to step away from bullying or coercive behavior.
This is highly creative energy, so another good option for the Pisces New Moon is to start a new creative project – especially one which can help you express the sea of emotions we associate with Pisces. Whether you want to express yourself through words, art, sculpture, crafts, baking, music or dance, this is your opportunity to let it all out.
Perhaps the most useful way to get in tune with the energy of the Pisces New Moon is to set aside time around the New Moon for mindfulness, meditation, prayer, mediumship, divination, magic or dreamwork. All of these things allow you to access another level of consciousness, where the Pisces energy can speak to your soul.
The Pisces New Moon forms a conjunction to expansive Jupiter and a sextile to unpredictable Uranus. No matter how bad things seem, we’re given a glimpse into a future where life seems a little brighter. Even though this influence is quite fleeting, it can be just enough inspiration to keep us going. We feel refreshed, optimistic and even lucky. Any emotions we’re feeling can be suddenly increased at this time. Our concern extends beyond the personal to a broad social level; we want to contribute and improve conditions for everyone.
It’s time to try something a little new, adventurous or even risky under this exciting, refreshing and all-too-brief transit. Time itself will seem to go a little bit faster, and when we check the clock we’ll be surprised to see how late it is. Animated chatter fills our ears. Phone calls and emails flow. There’s a buzz in the air. Now, don’t try anything too out-there. Wearing a new and daring outfit, taking a different route to work or trying out a new place for lunch -- especially someplace new and trendy -- should be enough to satisfy the urgings of this fun influence.
The Pisces New Moon for Each of the Sun Signs
The energy of the Pisces New Moon is subtly different for each of the Sun signs in astrology, so for each sign there are different ways of making the most of what Pisces brings us.

Gemini Zodiac Sign (Gemini Dates: May 21 – June 20) During the New Moon in Pisces

Cancer Zodiac Sign (Cancer Dates: June 21 – July 21) During the New Moon in Pisces
It’s rather a restless New Moon for you, Cancer, so don’t be surprised if you find it difficult to focus or to settle at anything.

Libra Zodiac Sign (Libra Dates: September 22 – October 22) During the New Moon in Pisces
Attend to your mental and spiritual health during this New Moon, Libra. You’re very good at looking after your physical health, but the other elements of your wellbeing tend to get left out.
