New Moon in Pisces 2023

This New Moon in Pisces connects us to the Divine

Are you an empath? Are you especially sensitive to the energy of this New Moon in Pisces? The Moon stays in Pisces until February 22nd at 5.14 GMT.

A New Moon is the ideal time to create a wish list for the month ahead. Its best done in the window of 48 hours after the New Moon. However as Mercury makes stunning trine- a flow of energy-to  Mars on February 22nd along with the contact of the Moon with Jupiter and Venus it will be worth waiting until then to wish upon a Star.

Miracles can happen, once we allow to positive vibration to become embedded in our minds and hearts. That’s why I have quoted from Tad Mann’s book on the tarot.

Saturn in Pisces

The most important event of the year starts on March 7th when Saturn-Lord of Karma – enters Pisces for the next two and a half years.

Saturn gets a bad press as its nature is heavy representing gravity and reality. To work with Saturn is the key. In the Vedic system the remedy for Saturn is being of service and supporting charities through our direct involvement. Saturn rules time, so once we give of our time and effort we can reap the reward. Saturn likes work and is associated with the gold watch that used to be given as a lifetime of service to a company.

The tarot

In the tarot Pisces is The Hanged Man. In Tad Man’s book The Elements of Tarot he writes that The Hanged Man has secrets of divination and prophecy that lie within the self and through communication with the feminine and unconscious aspects of the self. Wisdom through sacrifice, trials, being circumspect.

His affirmation for the Hanged Man is “I relinquish my attachments and fears in the faith that this sacrifice of invalid patterns will open me up to a new life.”

The theme is to feel the transformation taking place as you can feel your head radiating an other-worldly light in your ultimate enchantment.

Mercury-what Messages will be delivered?

Mercury entered Aquarius on February 11th. Mercury is the Messenger (or Trickster) so is far happier in another air sign. This bodes well for discussions around the table to end the strikes in the UK. Plus there will be harmony -at last-between Mars in Gemini and Mercury in Aquarius. Once it moves into Pisces it endorses the qualities of Neptune, the Dreamer archetype. Healing issues concerning the negative of Pisces which are being in sacrifice become important.

Key Dates

Sun in Pisces from February 18th until March 20th when it moves into Aries at the Spring Equinox.

New Moon at 1 degrees Pisces on February 20th.

 Full Moon at 16 degrees Virgo on March 7th at 12.40pm.

Mercury in Aquarius until March 2nd when it moves into Pisces.

Venus is in Aries. Venus in Aries is the Warrioress who fights for a cause.  It’s an Evening Star and joins Jupiter on February 15th. It enters Aries on February 20th at the New Moon in Pisces. It is joined by the Moon on February 22nd. On March 2nd it joins Jupiter but can be seen after dark until the Full Moon on March 7th as it rises higher in the night sky.

Mars is in Gemini. This is a sign ruled by Mercury, so I pray there will be a softer approach to anger issues/getting needs met. Under anger there is grief, which is symbolised by this New Moon in Pisces.

Jupiter is now direct. It moved into Aries on December 20th 2022 for approx. 5 months.  Then it will move into Taurus for an entire year on May 16th until May 26th 2024. This is wonderful news for Taurus and Scorpio.

Saturn is direct in Aquarius. It moves into Pisces on March 7th. This ends two and a half years of Saturn in Aquarius so comes as a welcome relief for all Aquarians and the other fixed signs of Leo and Scorpio.

Think back approx 29 years to remember what was going on in our life back then. It’s a far gentler energy that it has been for the past 5 years! Saturn is boundaries so can contain water with walls. Think of a swimming pool. This makes water and therefore emotions safe.

Uranus in Taurus is now direct activating 15 degrees Taurus. Make some practical changes in your life and throw out anything that doesn’t bring you joy! (It went direct on January 22nd.)

Neptune The Dreamer is now direct. In Pisces it favours all the water signs. Watch your visions and dreams, get creative and meditate. We now have an opportunity to bring our dreams into manifestation. Trust your intuition. Venus joins Neptune on February 15th– just in time for Valentines Day.

Pluto in Capricorn is direct. Pluto is an outer planet and affects world events. However it becomes more personal if it connects with one of inner planets in your chart. These are the Sun, Moon, Mercury Venus and Mars. It is activated at mid-life when it makes a square to itself around the age of 38. It will move into Aquarius briefly on March 23rd until June 11th.

New Service: Guidance for the Year Ahead using astrology’s best kept secrets!

If you are struggling to find guidance on how to navigate the year ahead, or a theme for your business or personal life, then I can help.

Using the Solar Return chart along with your age tells you what your guardian angel-the planet/archetype that is in focus for your year ahead. This special guiding planet for your birthday year, is known as a time lord.

So ages 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72, 84 are rebirth years with a focus on the first house.

The 12th house years are 11, 23, 35, 47, 59, 71 and 83. These are years of retreat, of going within.

This Time Lord repeats every 12 years, however the Solar Return chart is always unique.

For example, if the sign for your year is Leo, ruled by the Sun, then it’s a year for leadership and creativity.

If its Gemini, ruled by Mercury then its a year to write that book or get busy with launching or refining your website. Networking with like minds is also excellent.

I can then tell you what months are best for being visible, and what months are best for some rest/holiday or retreat.

I gave a FREE MasterClass on this subject. I explained the ages and what they represent. If you have your birth chart it will really help you understand this technique. I use whole signs for the best results rather than the Placidus house system.

You’ll learn how important your birthday and your age is, and how this shapes your mindset, mood and levels of motivation for the year ahead.

You’ll be encouraged to apply the cycles and techniques you learn to your chart. Or, of course you can book a special session with me!


Theme of the Year Consultation Each session is for One Hour for £75. 


Pam’s profections and solar return combo reading was an innovative and enlightening experience!

She shared the theme for the year as well as the targeted themes for each month of the year and crucial dates. This provided a focus for each month and a heightened focus of awareness for each month as well as key dates for a sharper focus.

We covered such rich ground it felt like an odyssey.

I would be thoroughly remiss if I did not add how lovely and generous Pam is, and how her lightness, along with deep knowledge, makes the experience.

Highly recommended. Patty B.

Many thanks again, Pam, for your awesome expertise, generosity and healing. Your Theme of the Year reading has energised me to move forward into 2023 with grace and passion. I also have clues now about 2024 as well! Your care and dedication to helping us all evolve makes you a fabulous counsellor and educator. I look forward to consulting you again. Anita

Theme for the Year Consultation

After taking Pam’s free Master Class, whereby she explained how to use Profections to focus on the year ahead, I was intrigued; particularly as I was only weeks away from my solar return in February.

As I wanted to ensure that I made the most of the promising opportunities I anticipated were in store for me during my forthcoming Jupiter year I booked a consultation with Pam. I knew I had only grasped the rudiments of the system. As I suspected it’s a lot more complicated than just knowing your Lord of the Year!

Pam began by telling me about what had happened in my life during the past year. She doesn’t know me that well so it was uncanny: she told me why the previous twelve months of my life had been beset by difficulties and in which areas. Thereafter, as Pam unravelled my chart for this year—month by month—she provided me with a lot of detailed information about the influences that I will find myself under during 2023 and how they will manifest.

Pam is a warm, gifted astrologer who wears her learning lightly. At no point did I feel that I was listening to a dry astrology lecture. Rather my consultation was informative, enlightening and empowering. I highly recommend her. Sophia
