Pisces is the last sign in the zodiac, but it certainly isn’t the least. Pisces may not be as loud and boisterous as Leo or as social and outgoing as Libra, but that doesn’t mean that the fish doesn’t hold all types of power over any planet or astrological body that may cross its path.
To better understand the impact that the Pisces moon can have, or what happens when the new moon transits through Pisces, we have everything that you need to know about its quiet but important astrological significance.
Join us here at Birthdate Co. as we help you better understand yourself.
Strengths of the Pisces Moon
If you fall under the Pisces Moon, you probably already know how much of a creative imagination you have. In fact, people with their moon in Pisces are considered to have the richest imagination of any sign in the zodiac.
This is usually a good thing, but, just like anything, it can have its downside as well. However, your imagination is often what motivates you, and that is why you are so great at any field that requires creative thinking.
Pisces moons also often find themselves involved in the arts in some way, creating film, music, art, or at least helping on the sidelines through directing or management. As much as you love your job, though, the people you work beside are what make or break how much you enjoy what you do.
For better or worse, Pisces moon is highly sensitive. When this quality is working for you, you find yourself being able to intuit the feelings of those around you, even when they’re not volunteering them readily.
That is because you aren’t just aware of feelings and emotions but are also sensitive to shifts in energy (even the subtle ones). Even your presence tends to be soothing to people around you, whether they are struggling or not, which is a “power” that really does defy explanation.
Pisces moons are also known for being unselfish givers. They’re the type that would literally give you the shirt off their back, even if that means that they have to go without. They make great friends, coworkers, children, or parents because they’re always loyal and always there for you, no matter what.
They are also incredibly romantic. However, instead of needing expensive dinners or lavish jewelry to feel loved and appreciated, the Pisces moon just needs time spent with their person without outside influence. Long walks, picnics, bubble baths; these are the keys to the Pisces moon’s heart. When they choose to share their life with someone, they also do it for life.
They’re incredibly developed and loyal partners.
Weaknesses of the Pisces Moon
The downside of all that sensitivity is that the Pisces moon often finds themselves unable to shut off how much they pick up around them. That can be exhausting because they also don’t know how to say no to someone in emotional need.
You are the shoulder to cry on so often that you don’t take the time to make sure you are participating in self-care, which is essential to maintaining a healthy life with healthy boundaries and self-respect.
It’s likely that you are very influenced by any environment you find yourself in, which can be a good or a bad thing depending on the context. Unfortunately, in a lot of cases, you don’t even notice that this is happening. You can be a little bit like a chameleon that way.
When it comes to love, the Pisces moon tends to be picky. These people prefer to pair for life and don’t enjoy dating for the sake of dating. Unfortunately, sometimes dating around is the way that you find out what you want in a partner, and you miss out on that entire process if you shut down potential partners before you’ve even given them a chance.
It’s important to remember that love doesn’t happen in an instant or overnight, no matter how romantic you are. There is also a natural tendency to be a little idealistic in love, and the Pisces moon may see their partner for who they want them to be and not necessarily who they are in reality.
Codependency can also become a real issue to watch out for.
Their creative nature can also come back to bite them, at least in certain situations. It’s ok to daydream and fantasize about what you want your life to look like, but when you stay there too long and compare everything in real life to what you think it should be, you miss out on all the important, exciting things happening in the here and now.
Don’t let life pass you by while you live in the future; find a way to be more present at the moment so you don’t miss moments you won’t be able to get back. This same tendency makes it easy for people to misunderstand them and take their silence for aloofness.
This tendency to retreat can be especially obvious when the Pisces moon gets hurt or upset. Instead of dealing with the issue or talking it out, they head back inside their head and escape into a dream world where that situation isn’t happening.
In some cases, the Pisces moon may even physically leave the situation, walking it off until they feel calmer and more in control. That can be tough to deal with, especially in a romantic situation.
What It Means to Have a New Moon in Pisces
As opposed to having your moon in Pisces, the moon’s current location can also impact everyone’s lives across the board. This is similar to how Mercury retrograde works, where everyone feels its influence no matter what their sun sign is.
When the new moon occurs while the moon makes its transit through Pisces (which happens about once a year), it is a massive signal to expect new beginnings. Because Pisces is known for its creativity, more than any other sign, these beginnings also often have to do with being able to envision how you want your future to look and then taking steps to get it there.
Instead of being stuck with “realistic” dreams, a new moon in Pisces encourages you to dream bigger, much bigger than what you may think is “acceptable.” Stop being so afraid of your dreams, and start working on achieving them.
Along with using this time of new beginnings to work toward finding out how to reach your goals, this new moon is also a great time to work on your own self-healing. Every single person on Earth has experienced some kind of trauma in their life, whether it is “big” or “small.”
Both emotional and physical trauma can have major repercussions on the personality and the way that you interact with the world around you. Holding that in instead of talking about it can have serious consequences, so it is so important to talk about it or even just write it down to get it out of your head. In fact, this might even help you on a physical level! In truth, that’s how breakthroughs and healing happens, by facing it head-on and getting as much closure as you can.
Emotions in a New Moon
Ultimately, having a new moon occur in Pisces takes our emotions up a whole level. This can be especially tricky for signs not known for their sensitivity (like Aries and Capricorn), as it forces them to connect deeper with their emotional sides in a way they may not be especially comfortable with. However, this offers them a huge opportunity to open up a little more should they accept the challenge.
That’s where real growth happens, even though it may be uncomfortable.
Overall, it’s a good idea to prepare for a few days of significant mood swings and feelings bubbling to the surface that you probably thought you had already dealt with when the new moon happens in Pisces.
Be kind and patient with yourself, especially if you’re not used to dealing with extreme emotions and old feelings. Learn what you can, and move out of the new moon and into the next moon cycle with a little bit less emotional baggage than you had when it began.
It’s a gift, although it may not feel like it at first, and ignoring it will only cause it to show up later in other areas of your life.
