Intuitive, Imagination, Compassion, Empathy

On March the 17th there’ll be a New Moon in Pisces, but before look what the Pisces New Moon means let’s look a little closer at the Moon and what it represents in astrology.

The Moon in Astrology

The Moon represents our inner world: our emotions, mood, feelings of inner security, sensitivity, the unconscious and intuition.  In astrology the Moon is one of the most important planets as she is also mother, home, family, feelings and habits and how we instinctually react to life.

In your natal chart (the time of your birth) the Moons location tells you your emotional tendencies while the Moon’s current location as its moving across sky impacts on our feelings and behaviour in the present.   She speaks to us through our feelings.
