New Moon in Pisces, February 20, 2023


Crescent Moon, taken by Gary Hart

We’ve been taking in the Light of the Snow Full Moon in Leo. February is the snowiest month of the year in the USA. The Full Snow Moon is also known as the Hunger Moon and the Little Famine Moon, when food was running short. “Perhaps due to this month’s association with death, the Cherokee tribe would commune with their dead ancestors during the Bone Moon.” 

Leo is the symbol of the Sun that raises the truth from the shadows to Light, and the Truth hidden in plain sight. Every encounter with the Sun reflects a Time of Revelation. We have to reach a new limit to reach higher ground.


Our Ancestors faced the fears of “life or death” matters and remembered ones who came before, and honored the sacrifices that were made for those who came after. In the season of Winter, Mother Earth call us all inside, drawing from the strength of our resources from within. The “last miles to reach home” can feel like the longest stretch of the journey, when we’re tired, when we’ve given our all and we’re reaching our limits.

The New Moon on Monday, February 20, 2023, is located at 01°22′ Pisces. A minor fixed star at 02°11′ Pisces will have some influence. But a more substantial impact on the new moon astrology comes from Saturn, just over three degrees away.

The New Moon in Pisces on February 20, 2023, aligns with Saturn. So the meaning of the New Moon February 2023 astrology is reaching your goals with hard work, patience and persistence.

The February 2023 New Moon is good for beginnings and endings. But particularly new beginnings because Venus sextile Pluto brings out the best nature of Saturn, and it also gives the passion and obsession to succeed.  Astrology King

The New Moon in Pisces…

When Pisces meets the new Moon, magic is in the air. Pisces is the most spiritual sign of the zodiac, and her energy reminds us that we are spiritual beings in a human form. This energy teaches us that we are one with everything. We are made of the same energy as the Sun, the Moon, and all of the stars.

We are also one with our dreams. Everything we want is already ours. Every wish, desire, and vision is in the realm of possibility because energetically, we are already living it on some level. Our job is to break down the barriers within us that prevent us from receiving our highest visions. By working with this new Moon in the waters of Pisces, we can feel the infinite flow of life and energetically align with our dreams’ frequency.  Yoga Journal

We were given the Power to Dream. We hold the Consciousness to imagine a future that rises beyond all the hard lessons of the past. We can claim we’ve changed if we clearly see what we’d never choose again for the Sake of Love to be Seen and Acknowledged as it was intended to be. We are already rising from the ashes of our past.

The New Moon is the perfect time to claim a new beginning. We can count on the Divine Inspiration of the Creator to lead us to the Blessings that are waiting in the Spring. May we remember that our prayer is the same prayer shared in Harmony with the Creator and the Ancestors who have gone before. We can do anything by the Powers of Love that reign Above all the darkness we face Below.

May the Lord of all Creation bless and keep you through the coldest nights.

love, in lak’ech,

10 Monkey/CHUEN (Cherokee, Raccoon/KVH’LI)

Galactic Tone 10: Manifestation. What were once intentions or ideas, hopes or fears become physically present with the energy of Ten. What is focused upon with attention and intention becomes real with Ten. Ten is a powerful energy that carries a great responsibility.

Monkey/CHUEN: Monkey is known to the Maya as the Weaver or Weaver of Time. Monkey takes ideas as threads of vines and weaves them into the fabric of our reality. New patterns or inventions are also woven into our lives by Monkey. Amiable, intelligent, generous and a jack of all trades, Monkey’s innocent curiosity leads to artistic expression and constructive solutions. Many Monkeys become highly respected merchants or speakers. They love performing practical jokes and crave attention, so much so that they may over-act or play the fool to get the spotlight. Monkeys have a short attention span and find it difficult to stay with anything long enough to master it.

Cherokee, Raccoon/KVH’LI: Star Symbol: Algol, a star in Perseus. Restless energy yearning for long-lost love. Algol was named DEMON STAR or MISCHIEVOUS ONE by the Ancients because it winks and fades at times. Raccoons are full of friendly mischief, eager to swap kisses for candy; magnetic leaders, full of humor and gaiety. Favorite food is corn, the mainstay of the Cherokee. Very artistic while being the “masked bandit” who steals your heart. Totem Monkey: The energy of humor, the artisan and craftsmen of the Universal energy. Helps us to lighten up in all situations, was the glyph of the 4th world creation in conjunction with OC so that we would have humor in all of our endeavors. The humor, when added to a serious situation will allow you to have a less destructive pattern of resolution. This is the “Cosmic joke” energy to help us transcend the duality. A life path of comedian, actor, artist, artisan writer, satirist, any path is enhanced with this humor in conjunction with the creative energies.
