What is a New Moon?
A new moon occurs when the transit (moving) Sun and Moon are in the exact same position in the Zodiac (called a conjunction). New moons are related to beginnings, have high energy, and are enthusiastic.
What is a Full Moon?
A full moon occurs when the transit (moving) Sun and Moon are in the exact opposite positions in the Zodiac (called an opposition). Full moons are related to endings, culminations, and are emotional energy.
New Moon in Pisces: February 2nd 2022 (1:35PM ET/10:35AM PT)
A Pisces new moon is great for intuition, and we can believe in our instincts and trust our inner guide. You can pursue spiritual projects and ventures, or anything spiritual that catches our interest.
Pisces is artistic, creative, and imagination, so a Pisces new moon can be excellent for any ventures and opportunities that allow you to flex your artistic muscles, use your creative know-how, and channel your imagination. You can feel inspired and want to make something new.
Pisces rules the hidden, so we may pursue opportunities that keep us in the background, or we may keep what we're pursuing quiet until we're ready to put it out there. Work we've already done quietly or in the background can get some recognition now as well.
This new moon is conjunct (aligned with) transit (moving) Jupiter in Pisces, and sextile (positive aspect, two signs away) transit Uranus in Taurus. The conjunction to Jupiter helps with opportunities, and we can expand, explore, and pursue what we're interested in, especially with spiritual and creative matters. The sextile to Uranus helps us do things differently, and we can find new ways to take action.
This new moon occurs at 12 degrees 7 minutes Pisces. The aspects to this new moon are:
Conjunction: 10 degrees 7 minutes - 14 degrees 7 minutes Pisces
Sextile: 10 degrees 7 minutes - 14 degrees 7 minutes Taurus or Capricorn
Square: 10 degrees 7 minutes - 14 degrees 7 minutes Gemini or Sagittarius
Trine: 10 degrees 7 minutes - 14 degrees 7 minutes Cancer or Scorpio
Opposition: 10 degrees 7 minutes - 14 degrees 7 minutes Virgo
Full Moon in Virgo: February 18th 2022 (3:18AM ET/12:18AM PT)
Virgo full moons are generally excellent times to get things done. Virgo rules work, productivity, tasks, chores, and organization, so we can create a schedule that allows us to get more done, we can stick to a routine that helps us tackle everything we need to, and we can finally cut down that list of things to do. It can be a time to clear out daily life, and bring in some structure and order.
The only problem is we can push ourselves too far and cause a breakdown, so it's important to plan for breaks regularly. This doesn't make you lazy, it helps keep you going. If we push too much, we may get stressed out easily, so if you find yourself stressing, that can be a clue to pull back. Perfectionism can also become an issue, so try to avoid demanding perfection of yourself or others.
The full moon is trine (positive aspect, four signs away) transit Pluto in Capricorn, and this can help with giving us power and control over what we need to. We can feel empowered, emboldened, and confident in what we're doing. If we need to know more, we can keep digging until we find it, and if we need to transform, we can take the steps to do so.

Conjunction: 25 degrees 40 minutes - 29 degrees 40 minutes Virgo
Sextile: 25 degrees 40 minutes - 29 degrees 40 minutes Cancer or Scorpio
