Global Hot Spot: The Pisces New Moon on February 20, 2023

Sidney Poitier – who won the Academy Award for Best Actor for Lillies in the Field in 1964 – was born on February 20, 1927 in Miami although he grew up in poverty in the Bahamas. Not only was his Sun in Pisces, but the last water sign of the zodiac contained his Jupiter, Mercury, Venus and revolutionary Uranus. With his Venus-ruled Libra Rising and first-house Moon in Libra, he became one of the world’s most-beloved actors in films such as Blackboard Jungle, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?, To Sir, With Love, In the Heat of the Night, A Patch of Blue, A Raisin in the Sun, Porgy and Bess, Mandela and The Jackal. However, when I was only 8 ½ I remember watching him star with Tony Curtis in a fantastic film entitled The Defiant Ones. To add to his astrological superstar credits, he was born with passionate Pluto in his 10th house of professional stature and with formidable Saturn in Sagittarius exactly on America’s natal Ascendant from our national horoscope on July 4, 1776. He passed away on January 6, 2022 – the first anniversary of the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.




Dateline February 18, 2023: For those of you who are now enjoying the Astrology Cosmic Kalendar App one day at a time – but who have not yet subscribed to be able to look several weeks into the future – here are the calendar entries for the very potent Pisces New Moon on Sunday February 19 and Monday February 20. Because every day – beyond the current 24 hours that we define as one rotation of our celestial orb on its axis – has astro-zodiacal magic, mystery and wonder is why thousands of people around the world have been tuning into the Astrological Cosmic Kalendar for the last 41 years and since it was at the heart-center of our Welcome to Planet Earth pioneering astrology newspaper/magazine during the 1980s and 1990s.



The main reason this New Moon — energizing 2 degrees of Pisces — is extra significant is due to Venus entering Aries less than 1 hour after the New Moon and then making a tense, 45-degree aspect to radical-change agent Uranus in Taurus just 6 hours later.



For much more on the opportunities and challenges associated with recent New and Full Moons and Eclipses, please listen to the most recent podcasts in the Mark Lerner Astrology Radio AstroScope section on our website.


You can read more about this New Moon in the two calendar entries below. Please consider the merits of subscribing to the Astrology Cosmic Kalendar App to strengthen your already developing skills as a seer who can tune into the future ahead of time.


Future Cosmic Kalendar Entries for Sunday February 19 and Monday February 20 (All times are listed in PST.)


Sunday February 19 Love vibes, the creative arts and research projects gain prominence in sync with Venus in Pisces forming a supportive, 60-degree alliance with Pluto in Capricorn (9:06am). While this Venus-Pluto rapport has a fortuitous ring to it, be aware of a trio of celestial hiccups happening before the New Moon manifests at 11:07pm (activating 2 degrees of Pisces). What can send you to the back of the class with a dunce cap on your head is the increasing potency of the dark-of-the-moon phase (just preceding any solar-lunar merger), the monthly Moon-Saturn conjunction in Aquarius (6:01pm) and the arrival of a short void lunar zone that begins at 6:01pm that lasts until the Moon dives into Piscean currents at 8:57pm. Once the Moon is on its way to join forces with the Sun at 11:07pm, there is a great change in an auspicious direction. Not only will the New Moon be a dynamic catalyst helping you build momentum for important projects over the next four weeks, but Venus decides to enter leadership-strong, fiery Aries (11:57pm) in a cycle that lasts until March 16.

Monday February 20 By and large, the next 72 hours contain an abundance of thumbs-up vibrations. However, first you need to say no to turbulent emotions in your proximity as Venus in Aries forms an abrasive, 45-degree link to Uranus in Taurus (5:43am). Later on there is not only a mega-boost for healing interests as Mercury in Aquarius forms a supportive, 60-degree liaison with Chiron in Aries (9:00am), but on Wednesday the universe will offer humanity a rare quartet of lunar unions with Venus, Vesta, Jupiter and Chiron in Aries. Even though this foursome doesn’t fully materialize today or tomorrow, some measure of these awesome sky configurations can be assimilated before they become exact. In the meantime, immerse yourself in metaphysical teachings as the Moon forms a supportive, 60-degree alliance with Uranus in Taurus (9:21pm) and two, 51+ degree septiles strike this evening — Juno in Aries embracing Saturn in Aquarius (7:21pm) and Mercury contacting Vesta in Aries via the same aspect (11:40pm). Dance away the moody blues as the Moon in Pisces squares Mars in Gemini (10:45pm). Play a favorite musical instrument and watch your dreams for guidance overnight as the lunar orb’s next conjunction will be with visionary Neptune tomorrow. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Standard Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]
