The New Moon this week initiates the last degree of Aquarius, (29.59 degrees) and it occurs only 3 minutes before the Sun and Moon enter Pisces at 3:50 pm (Pacific Time)
Aquarius, the sign of the Moon, speaks to using your intelligence to connect with Universal wisdom. Pisces, the last sign of the zodiac is a mutable water sign. Pisces represents surrendering to the Divine.
When recognized and consciously merged, Aquarius and Pisces give you the confidence to trust your guidance system and navigate accordingly. The timing of this lunation is like hopping on a train just before the door closes. You turn to wave goodbye, and then step into a completely new realm.
New Moon – February 18th at 29 degrees Aquarius 3:47 pm (PT)
Calling in Peace
Once again, we welcome the new cycle of growth. Symbolically, this New Moon and the next New Moon of March 20th are about closure. Both have a strong emphasis on the sign of Pisces. And, amid the turmoil of the world, know that you can find peace in the waters of Pisces, the sign of spiritual wisdom, universal love, and compassion.
The Sabian Symbol Message for the Last Degree of the Zodiac
Every degree of the zodiac has an oracular message that unites astrology with an intuitive or channeled message.
The Sabian Symbol messages were created in 1925 by astrologer Marc Edmond Jones and clairvoyant Elsie Wheeler, and over the years have proven to hold valuable insights. (more on Sabian Symbols here)
The Sabian Symbol message for the last degree of Pisces is remarkably relevant: ‘A majestic rock formation resembling a face is idealized by a boy who begins to look like it as he grows up’.
This message is a special note from the Universe for the New Moon of February 18th and it’s about activating your power to clearly visualize ideals so that you can mold your life accordingly.
The last degree of any sign of the zodiac is considered a ‘critical degree.’ If you think about in practical terms, it means that we’ve come to the point of no return; that we can no longer look away and must face the matters to find resolution
Another Path to Peace – The Wisdom of Shekinah
Shekinah is more than a 21st century woman’s name; it’s also a word that denotes the dwelling place or settling of the divine feminine Presence of God.
Kabbalah teaches that Shekinah lives at the base of the Tree of Life in an environment similar to the seashore; a fluid meeting place between the earth and the sea.
Shekinah is the liaison between life on earth and the spirit realm. She assists in delivery for manifestation of our prayers, and there is the secret to getting her assistance.
Because she is a pure channel, she cannot function in the presence of negativity. To connect with the Spiritual realm and receive the benefit of Shekinah, to live in joy and have your prayers answered; you must first release grief and even feelings of lack.
This is a wonderful ancient teaching that has been repurposed today. Greet this New Moon with joy and anticipation. Apply the Aquarian qualities of discipline and reason. Then take the plunge into the ocean of Pisces.
With the guidance and protection of your personal restoration, you have a winning combination.
