New Moon in Pisces: February 23, 2020 – Effects By House

pisces vintageThe new moon in Pisces takes place in the morning on February 23rd.  If you can deal with some fog, this can be an unusual, sweet situation.  I may be the only astrologer who thinks this, so I’ll explain!

The sun and moon will be conjunct Mercury which is retrograde. If you need to cry about that, go ahead.  Neptune is also in Pisces. When you’re under this much water, you really ought to come to terms with it. Learn to float!

If you’re still with me, here’s the cool part. The sun and moon are profoundly supported by Mars, exalted in Capricorn.  On top of that and to it keep it interesting, Uranus in Taurus is also fully engaged with the sun and moon. I don’t think you can deny, this changes things.

By the way, this new moon will be exceptionally good for Scorpio… and Cancer too, if they can deal with Mars in Capricorn.  The whole set up looks to be a magic trick of the highest order.  The kind of trick that frees a person and advances them, rather than makes them look like a fool.

I admit this energy might conjure up some mind-fuckery but I think you can avoid most of that if you detach and let it play out.  Basically (Capricorn), let the water find it’s own level and you may be surprised how you benefit (Uranus in Taurus).

We set intentions under new moons. Here are some ideas based on the house in your chart where the new moon falls.

  1. If it keeps raining on and off like it has here for the last week or so, I suppose me and my neighbors will, literally, “learn to float” LOL. 3rd house.

  2. Hm, just a degree past my natal Pisces Moon in the 6th, and trine my Merc/Venus conjunction in Scorp in the 2nd. Nice, probably. I hope so, anyhow!

  3. For me in my 9th house conjunct my sun and mars.
    So a spiritual personal new moon for me. I’m really looking forward to it and see it as a cosmic bday gift. Bday is next day sun is 4.58 degrees in Pisces.
    Thank you Elsa for your wisdom and love of the stars. XXX

  4. Very close to my Pis ASC! Act with compassion eh? Not novel for me in the least. With natal Pluto opposite and Sag moon squaring it may not be that easy! I’ll try my best because it also exactly trines my 8th house Neptune in Scorpio and sextiles natal Saturn in Cap!

  5. New Moon will fall in my 8th house on my solar return (23rd Feb) Am already helping people in pain at moment – my Capricorn moon helps with detachment though and being able to swim/float through it all!:)

  6. I’m a Scorpio and very happy to hear about this magic about to float up to the surface. New moon will be just past my chiron point in my 8th house. There is an inheritance I am very overdue to receive because of shady family members so hoping that rises up to the surface. I could use it! But I’m just sitting back and waiting while focusing on 6th house instead.
    Sunday, when it’s new moon I will be singing in my church choir. Maybe I’ll help people that way.
    I’ve decided to drink extra extra water lately. This will embrace the positive effects of all that water and floating energy as I continue to work hard on my 6th house of healing my body and losing weight.Im amping up my physical focus and health goals with this stellium in my 6th conj my natal Saturn. Looking forward to when they touch upon my natal Jupiter at 0° Aquarius just a few degrees shy of entering my 7th house cusp at 3°
    All n all I’m enjoying riding the waves a d harnessing this energy for good.

  7. Gee Elsa…alot of new enquiries on this post. Lol
    Mines in my 6th house. To me its not necessarily secretly helping a workmate.but will try to do that.
    New moon beginning in my daily habits. Need to stop stagnating on this and start.
    Appt with new trainer on Monday 👍

  8. it’s a 10H moon for me and I’m working in my favorite department for the second time this week. they told me we hardly ever get sent here, but here I am.

    I’m on the second month of a 10H solar return year, complete with a new job that is the next step in my career trajectory. this department is best in line with my goals, so I think it’s a good place to start a 10H moon cycle.

    • I’d also like to add that the new moon is conjunct my midheaven at a one degree orb so I knew there would be something with my career, especially since I work tonight and my mars return is separating.

  9. The New Moon is in my 2nd House. Yesterday (the morning before New Moon) we heard from our mentor and loved teacher who has just recently moved back to her island of birth (Puerto Rico). She and her island, and island people have been battered by earthquakes. Her personal message to us allowed us to send “hard goods and cash” to her … in time for this Pisces New Moon. I am Scorpio. My husband Cancer. As you wrote Elsa, this is particularly ‘magic’ for us.
    Thanks for this perspective, and helpful guidance!! M&P
