On February 19th, the sun enters Pisces. Then on the 20th, we have Rosh Chodesh Adar—the New Moon of Pisces. It is important to understand that these are two different events. The movement of the sun and the moon do not always line up, meaning they may not enter a sign at the same time. In fact, the sun can enter a sign up to 15 days before the New Moon. But this month they happen only one day apart. This proximity of events magnifies the energy of the sign of Pisces, or Adar, in the Hebrew language. So we have two different synchronized cycles.
When the sun enters a sign, it is a moment when the cosmic energy makes a forceful shift. We can all feel the magnitude of this change from one energy to another. In this case, we go from cold and social Aquarius to warm and emotional Pisces. The change between these two very different energies is brutal. Aquarius is cerebral, intelligent, and has a great awareness of social well-being. While Pisces is loving, empathetic, sensitive, and often psychic. One thinks with the mind and the other with the heart. That is the gift of this month.
Through the connection with the energy of Rosh Chodesh Pisces, the seed of the month, we can take control of the challenges we may face during the next 28 days. We can also tap into the virtues of this sign for our benefit since this month, the energy is not only for those born under this sign. If we flow with the lunar rhythms, it is likely that what we plant at this moment will manifest successfully. Reflect on areas of your life where you need more empathy, love, and sensitivity. It is an excellent time to start integrating activities such as meditation and prayer into your life.
This week we study the kabbalistic portion of Terumah, which tells us about the construction of the Mishkan, or Tabernacle. In fact, several portions of the Torah mention the construction of this space. But in Terumah, it is approached from the perspective of the heart. With the construction of that holy and pure place, the Light of the Creator can reside within us. This moves us toward the spiritual maturity to give from the soul and reveal Light in the world. The Piscean astrological energy this week is incredible and supports us in opening our hearts and feeling the Creator in a very real way.
At the beginning of the week, we might be extra sensitive and emotional. This is an excellent moment to meditate, pray, ask for forgiveness, and offer forgiveness to others. These days we will feel more compassion and empathy. Be careful because you can act irresponsibly. On Wednesday and Thursday, we are more motivated and energized, so physical activities will benefit us. We may also feel an initiative and desire to undertake new endeavors. We have more willpower but are also more impulsive and less patient. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday are days of joy and enjoyment. Connect with beauty and seek balance. We can feel more materialistic and connected with the physical, which benefits work life and routines. All this also makes us more practical and rational.
