On February 23, 2020 at 15:31, GMT, there is a New Moon taking place in the romantic, emotional and relaxed sign of Pisces and in conjunction with the Royal Persian star Fomalhaut located in the water mouth (gate) of the South Pisces constellation. This conjunction promises success in everything that starts now, provided our basic ideals and dreams are noble and not at all corrupt. Therefore, this is a new beginning that involves the need to move from a more materialistic point of view to a more spiritual, idealistic and romantic one, that takes into into account the collective and not just the individual. Otherwise, a great deal of loss and confusion may follow.
Moreover, the fact that the New Moon is at a critical degree ruled by Venus reveals that the risk of loss, confusion and consequent insecurity relates particularly to relationships, partnerships, associations, values (material-spiritual) and financial dealings. The reason may be over-optimism or an over-the-top need for risk, adventure or influence that may conceal serious dangers, in line with Venus in partile square with Jupiter and applying to squares with Saturn-Pluto. Additionally, Venus and Jupiter jointly and very closely activate the Uranus-Chiron midpoint, so the above behaviors and needs may also lead to sudden marginalization of people or sudden trauma or feelings of disadvantage.
In any case, salvation will follow from unselfishness and the search for new ways of finding material and emotional security. This way there will be opportunities for innovative actions and initiatives that can improve the material side of life and bring more emotional security (Lights in sextile aspects to out-of-bounds Mars-South Node and Uranus at the Moon’s pure exaltation). Finally, Mercury's retrograde movement and the complete absence of the air element make communications and travel quite problematic - perhaps introspection may be preferable for the next period along with the revision of ideas or discussions that took place in the first couple of weeks of February. In any case, we wish you enjoy the New Moon!
