Harness The Power Of Your Emotions: A Pisces New Moon Ritual

It's here! The new moon in the watery, dreamy sign of Pisces! With it brings emotions, luck and compassion. March will be a magical month... full of dreams and hope for the future.

This Pisces moon connects with Jupiter, which is the planet of luck! It is also the planetary ruler of Pisces- so this new moon will be super charged! This would be a perfect moon to do any sort of heart chakra work or ritual. I will outline below a simple, yet effective new moon ritual for you to do tonight (or any time, really) to focus on your emotions and heart chakra and what they are telling you.


Start with a spiritual bath (if you don't know what it is, or want to know how to do one - you can find that information here.) Next, grab yourself a pink or green candle- if you have neither of these, a white candle will do. Play some soft music in the background, turn off the lights and sit in front of the candle. Light it. Take several deep breaths as you stare into the flame. This can also be referred to as scrying. Keep breathing while focusing on nothing but the flame. Next, bring your attention to your heart chakra. What sensations are you feeling there? What emotions are coming up for you? Does it feel heavy? Light? Empty? Full? What thoughts or memories come to mind as you stare into the flame? How do they make you feel?

It is important that throughout this process, you are present & in the moment without any distractions. You will feel everything as it comes to you. Allow yourself to cry if you feel that you want to. Laugh. Feel at peace, comforted. Whatever it is that comes up- even if it runs the emotional gambit.... FEEL IT. As the old adage goes: you gotta feel it to heal it.

Pay attention to the thoughts and memories that are conjured up in this meditation ritual. Do not be surprised if old, deep wounds come to the surface. Memories that perhaps you haven't thought about in years suddenly make their presence known. Things you thought you had let go of are coming back around for another release. Let them come.

Again, focus on the heart chakra and what sensations you are feeling. All the while, still looking at the candle's flame. How does it feel now? Warm? Light? Tingly? Continue to breathe and feel all that you need.

When you are ready, slowly blink and release your focus on the candle flame. Come back into the room and take a few minutes to centre and ground yourself. This would be an excellent time to journal about what you have experienced during this new moon ritual.

If you wish to enhance your ritual, feel free to add these extras to your process.

INCENSE- this will set a mystic mood as well as bring in the element of AIR. I would suggest a road opener incense, jasmine or nag champa... but any incense you like will do.

CRYSTALS- these will intensify the ability to recognize the emotions you are feeling and ground you as well as bring in the element of EARTH. Crystals I would suggest for this ritual would be amazonite, clear quartz, blue apatite or hematite. Place these around the candle or hold one in your palm as you stare in the flame.

The candle itself will act as the element of FIRE and if you choose to do the spiritual bath, that will act as the element of WATER. Tying in the 4 elements will simply intensify your experience.

Another thing to expect with this Pisces New Moon... is the urge to deep dive within yourself. You may find yourself looking for deep meaning in everything around you, re-evaluating all aspects of your life: relationships, career, your purpose. This could signal the beginning of a new awakening... a dark night of the soul. The quest for meaning will be very strong for the next couple of weeks... so allow yourself to dive deep within yourself and search for those answers you are looking for. If you need to repeat the above ritual a couple of times over the coming weeks, by all means do so.
