The new moon in Pisces moves through the sky on February 19 at 11:06 p.m. PT (or February 20 at 2:06 a.m. ET), heralding a new astrological era. Just a couple weeks after, in March, we’ll see some major change on the cosmic front: Saturn moves into Pisces on March 7 and Pluto enters Aquarius on March 23. This new moon functions like a portal to that new astrological chapter, hinting at what we can expect to be written in the stars in the months to come.

A new moon in Pisces—the sign of deep feelings and the inner psyche—reminds us to dream big, stirs up our creativity, and also asks us to reflect on the importance of surrender. This one marks an opportune time to hone your relationship with your intuition, given that it is the final lunation in Pisces without the tough influence of Saturn until 2026. Though Pisces is typically a free-flowing and inspiring sign, once it is occupied by taskmaster Saturn, we may notice that lunations in Pisces become less expansive and freeform and adopt a bit more of a sobering and serious tone.

We could feel more pressure under this new moon or as if we’re on the heels of a massive shift—which we are.

On the day of the new moon, Venus in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn will also be lingering at 29 degrees, the final degree before changing signs. In astrology, the 29th degree is known as an anaretic degree, which can channel feelings of tension. As a result, we could feel more pressure under this new moon or as if we’re on the heels of a massive shift—which we are. On a collective and individual level, life will look and feel drastically different after March 2023.

In particular, this new moon foreshadows the vibe of March 18, when Saturn in Pisces will arrive at the exact point that this new moon takes place. Pay attention to the themes of conversations and interactions under this new moon, as similar topics could come up for revision on March 18.

Some good news? We’ve officially moved past the post-shadow Mars retrograde phase and are finally venturing into uncharted territory. All planets are direct and gaining speed. It’s go time!

To get a full understanding of how this new moon in Pisces will affect you, read on for your sun, moon, and rising signs. Then, pick up a unique self-care practice to make the most of the day.

What the new moon in Pisces means for your zodiac sign


The new moon in Pisces moves through your 12th house of closure, healing, and release. Now is an aligned time to reflect on the desires you once had for yourself. Do they still tug at your soul? It may be time to let go of something you once dreamed of to make space for something even more aligned to enter your sphere. Tune into your inner voice—it’s offering guidance loud and clear.

Your new moon self-care practice: If you’re able, take a bath. Sink into your solitude, and try out a guided meditation. Otherwise, spend some quiet time alone. You might be surprised by the personal breakthroughs or ideas that surface.


What is your end goal, Taurus? As the new moon lights up your 11th house of community, friendships, hopes, and dreams, your attention is shifting toward your future and collaboration. Now is a fertile time to plant seeds of intention for what you hope to manifest down the line. Leaning into your network may help bring you closer to your desires—and new connections made at this time can also be inspiring.

Your new moon self-care practice: Join a group or organization that feeds your soul. Spending time around people who share similar interests as you will be inspiring and encouraging.


Chances are, you have a wide variety of interests, Gemini. This new moon in Pisces, which activates your 10th house of public reputation, could lead you to your next milestone in one of those passions. If career is a focus, that might mean you receive a new job, project, or role at work. If not, perhaps you make progress toward a personal goal or ambition. In any case, this fresh start could bring attention your way; use your magnetism to your advantage.

Your new moon self-care practice: Make a list of your achievements. To do so, go back into the past as far as you want. This will help you reflect on all you’ve accomplished and remind you to practice gratitude for where you are now.


A perspective shift is on its way, Cancer. The new moon moves through your ninth house of travel, expansion, spirituality, and knowledge. Something about your worldview or the way you used to interpret a situation is changing. New information could lead you to grow or develop new ideas. Perhaps you encounter an important mentor or begin a new course of study around this time. It’s also an aligned time for travel—so, if you can, book that bucket-list trip!

Your new moon self-care practice: Try something new, even if it feels risky. You’re more aware now that engaging in new activities has the potential to expand your mind.


It’s time to rethink the way you invest in others, Leo. The new moon highlights your eighth house of shared resources and finances, leading you to rework the way you spend and save money and where you choose to invest. On an emotional level, you’re clearing out the past and may be ready to cut ties with old stories that don’t define you. Your time and energy are also valuable resources, and you could reconsider with whom you share them moving forward.

Your new moon self-care practice: Try a cord-cutting meditation. If there is a person or situation that’s lingering in your life but that no longer serves you, use this exercise to free yourself from this outdated connection.


Partnership and collaboration are top of mind, Virgo. The new moon in Pisces illuminates your seventh house of one-on-one relationships and contracts. New business and romantic unions can take place if you put yourself out there to connect with others. And for coupled Virgos, this energy supports a love or marriage refresh—it’s time to reignite the spark!

Your new moon self-care practice: Reach out to someone of interest. It could be work- or love-related or a platonic connection, but don’t hesitate to shoot your shot. Collaboration is favored under this new moon, so go after the people whom you want in your life.


Is your work-life balance under control, Libra? The new moon lands in your sixth house of health, routines, hard work, and habits. If you’ve been overextending yourself, it’s a reminder to honor your boundaries. Remember: You deserve rest. This is also an aligned time to kick an old habit you don’t want to carry into the next moon cycle and rework your daily routine.

Your new moon self-care practice: Say no. Chances are, people need a lot from you right now, and you’re already contending with a lot. Don’t be afraid to express your own needs and your boundaries as needed.


It’s time for a little more pleasure and play, Scorpio. The new moon moves through your fifth house of romance, sexuality, creativity, and entertainment. And as a result, it could add some sparks to your dating life. This is also an opportunity to engage with hobbies and activities that feed your soul, and to celebrate and focus on experiencing joy in the present moment.

Your new moon self-care practice: Get yourself to a playground! It’s time to let your inner child steer the ship. Engage in some childlike play, and leave the adulting at the door. Your ability to reconnect with your imagination could prove inspiring in many different areas of your life.


You may be craving more solitude than normal, Sagittarius. The new moon highlights your fourth house of family, living environment, and your sense of security. Perhaps you find yourself feeling more nostalgic as a result. Pay attention to what’s worth holding onto versus which parts of your past you’re ready to release. You may have the chance for fresh starts in the realm of home and family, too, perhaps in the form of a renovation or redecoration, a new roommate, or an opportunity to reconcile a familial relationship.

Your new moon self-care practice: Take a moment to reflect on the physical objects in your bedroom. Are they reflective of who you are and the life you want to live? Switch out the decorations accordingly to create a more supportive and nurturing environment.


Extra, extra—read all about it, Capricorn! The new moon illuminates your third house of communication, self-expression, learning, and your surrounding environment. In turn, you may notice big shifts taking place in the lives of people around you, siblings, or extended family. Your schedule may also be busier than normal with social events. Whatever information arrives, do your best to communicate and share your feelings and thoughts openly.

Your new moon self-care practice: Open your voice memo app and start talking. Detail where you are now, and then, describe your future and where you want to be—but do so as if it’s already happened. Your words carry magic under this new moon.


You could find yourself tuned into your finances and personal resources, Aquarius. The new moon lands in your second house of income, perhaps signaling a raise or new project at work, or simply inviting you to reconsider your budget. If you’ve been eyeing a big purchase for some time, you might also finally decide to treat yourself. You’re reconnecting with your sense of comfort and beginning a new chapter in self-sufficiency to maintain it.

Your new moon self-care practice: Practice gratitude every time you swipe your credit card or pay for something. This will help cultivate a more abundant mindset.


It’s all about you, Pisces! Not only is it your season, but also, this new moon takes place in your sign and first house of self, identity, and personal ambitions. It’s asking you to be the boldest version of yourself, making this an opportune time to focus on your goals and desires for the year to come. What do you want to call in? Whatever it is, charge fearlessly toward it.

Your new moon self-care practice: Close your eyes, and visualize your high-school self. How did they want to self-express? Who did they want to be? Embody some part of their dream self that still feels aligned today. Show them that it’s safe to take up space in a way that feels authentic.
