NEPTUNE in PISCES stationary in June – goes retro June 21 (until Nov 27) – Connectivity without Co-Dependency

22 Jun

June is quite the oceanic month, dear Friends!

Did you know?
June 8 was also World Oceans Day, raising awareness for the Beauty and vital Importance of the World Oceans.
To this I say: Every day is World Oceans Day!
Obvious by now how the Oceans show us: We’re all, and it IS all connected.
How are we responding to  / IN this ‘simple’ truth?

Just as the Oceans and atmosphere connect us, we experience now (well, always have, but perhaps even more so since CHIRON and NEPTUNE have entered PISCES, 2010 and 2012) how everything links with everything, in a limitless energetic continuum. The veils between dimensions, incl. Time and Space have become more and more permeable.

Have you recently felt overwhelmed by information and possibilities, yet going nowhere?

Where is this going? What’s the direction?
Have you been questioning everything?
Have you been in a maze, blues, blah mode, aimless, passive, confused, maybe even depressed, drifting, dreaming, feeling disillusioned, disappointed, feeling like checking out and escaping ‘reality’ lately,  and / or ‘hooked’ on something that has turned into an addiction?

Seems like you’re tuning into a low grade expression of NEP-TUNE’s turnaround mode….

 

Neptunian Turning Point 

Neptunian ‘Portrait’ by NASA’s Hubble – Doesn’t it look tie dyed? 

The Archetype of Oneness takes us inward-backward in its 5-months retro journey that started yesterday, June 21.
This doesn’t mean to retreat from the ‘outer world’ and ‘do nothing’.
Yet, a retreat from overwhelm / addiction (which are often linked and of the same Archetype: “Still haven’t found what I’m looking for…”) and inner ‘refuge’ would be well-supported by NEPTUNE retro.

As we’re still in the cycle of the alchemical GEMINI New Moon (June 3), a good starting point would be inquiry into:

  • What’s missing, what am I yearning for?
  • What would complement and change me?
  • How can this… be found within, in connection with / as the ONE?

NEPTUNE is just the first of 4 planets going retro in July / Aug (MERCURY on July 7, CHIRON on July 8, URANUS on Aug 12), joining a ‘team’ of 5 Retrograde ‘Players’ in July / Aug!

Good to be aware of the NEPTUNE Archetype, and able to recognize what’s up when we’re getting ‘hooked’, what alternative higher vibrational expressions may look like, and how to tune into those.

NEPTUNE’s a Very Important Planet this month, since it’s on a turnaround course (twice a year) from Earth perspective, exact since yesterday, June 21, hence moving very slowly mid June to early July, and an energetic focal point.
NEPTUNE will be retro until Nov 27 (a yearly rhythm of 5 months retro / 7 months direct).

NEPTUNE has been also involved in the GEMINI New Moon on June 17 (which widely squared stationary NEPTUNE in PI), and is presently activated by a Water Trine from MERCURY / MARS / the North Node in CANCER (exact June 13 – 16).
The Water Trine from the North Node to NEPTUNE continues until mid-July.

The Water Trine invites us to….:

Communicate with care and compassion, stay connected (rather than ‘checking out’), surf the energy field that’s naturally available, dance with Life, surrender to what-IS, hold space in Oneness, ride energy waves with flow and ease, without resisting nor getting unhealthily entangled or enmeshed in co-dependency (shadow of PI), is the way to (Let) Go.

 

Water is Life!

In case you haven’t seen (or not in a while) the moving and mobilizing video about Standing Rock Water Protectors/ Warriors with the song by Trevor Hall please watch and RE-connect. 
Still and always important to protect our Waters!

 

We are all in THIS together…

Earth YinYangRemember when people were talking about the theory of ‘six degrees of separation’, but hey – since  NEPTUNE moved into
PISCES (2012 – 2026) the experience of separation through Time and Space has more and more morphed into interconnectedness anyway.

My sense is NEPTUNE in PISCES also mirrors the outflow of the Piscean Age– as the Aquarian Age is already ‘moving in’ with highly individualizing technological self-sufficiency (and isolation).

Internet and media allow (and hook!) us to be continuously plugged in and connected (to and through technology – which is now omni-available, ever since NEPTUNE sailed through AQ from 1998 – 2012, and to and through media – omni-present, and for many of us the place where ‘social’ happens most, ever since NEPTUNE entered PI, in 2012.

We’re swimming in, or rather: AS, a collective and universal field of energy – all connective and vibrational, atmospheric and boundary-less. 
Well, solid form is an illusion anyway.

Since the slow moving planets NEPTUNE (2012 – 2026) and CHIRON (2010 – 2018, now already in ARIES) have been in PISCES, there’s been a flood of influences and confluences, overwhelming and weakening (NEPTUNE),  and leaving us vulnerable (CHIRON).
Our individual (which is of course an illusion) identity experiences him / herself separate, and has a need to connect and feel connected. 
Where to turn? 
How to turn connectedness on?

Heart_Meditation

Yoga has become a big phenomenon, and a lot of people turned to a spectrum of spiritual (PI) practices (VIR) – all showing the path to / AS the ONE (PI).


And yes, NEPTUNE also reflects trends and mass movements 
(also mass manipulation, by the way).

 

So, what’s with co-dependency?

PISCEAN energy is about connection.
It’s a transpersonal, universal energy. When ‘drawn into’ inter-personal realms, there can be a need to connect into a no-boundary / ‘endless’ state with someone that’s quite unhealthy, and doesn’t allow for breathing space or closure, and maybe the other partner has the co-dependent need to be needed.
“Can’t be with you, can’t be without you” sums up the feeling culture in such co-dependent / addicted relationships. Often, they’re based on various early life experiences (like abandonment, neglect, confusing bonding, or overwhelm / abuse) that the PISCEAN ‘person’ unconsciously tries to compensate for, to ‘get the loving connection’, yet s/he might re-attract similar addictive situations as s/he looks for love at the wrong places with the same vibration.

A while ago, I saw a video based on the experiences and teachings of Gabor Mate that showed how addiction is a misdirected need for connection (both so Piscean!).
In German, the words for seeking (Suche) and addiction (Sucht) have the same root.
“Still haven’t found what I’m looking for…”.

Our Piscean Age that humanity is just about to outgrow has compounded such patterns and tendencies with, simplistically put, the classic co-dependent triad of victim – perpetrator – martyr / saviour. They need each other to maintain the constellation.
Always good to check in and be self-aware (VIRGO) which role/s (maybe two at once) we might play in a difficult situation – and to keep releasing…

And good to be aware of:
NEPTUNE is a transpersonal planet – actually the ‘higher octave’ of VENUS. 
In other words, we are personally attracted to and connected with one another via VENUS, while NEPTUNE is about… being connected.

 

YinYang Infinite

The essence of timeless Tao Wisdom: Yin-Yang Balance is always dynamic and interwoven.

PISCES and the Paradox

With PISCES, the approach is paradoxical (“Let go, relax, and it comes to you, you can’t ‘get’… (LOVE?) what you already have or rather: are….”), and transpersonal (“Don’t take it personally!” Is that possible?)

I’m sure there’ll be more downloads and releases from NEPTUNE now as it’s just gone retrograde in PISCES…
May the Universe-All Love show us:
All is connected. May we relax into this, breathe out and let go, and let the in-breath come naturally…

 

What a miraculous mirage!

… that NEPTUNE in its own domain PISCES (2012 – 2026) shows us:
All is fluid, ever changing, yet everything is always here.
There is nothing constant about life, about you, yet something permeates existence.
Big paradoxes. Wherever you go, there you are.
Yet where is the Self to be found (let’s contemplate THIS)?

 

Humanity and all life forms are interconnected. We see that now inevitably on all levels, ecologically, climate wise, via the media, politically, economically, culturally.

Our True Nature is Wild & ONE! LILITH goes into PISCES (May 3, 2019 – Jan 27, 2020)

30 Apr

 

‘Wild Woman’ LILITH is shifting signs (only every 9 months), as ‘she’ moves out of AQ (since Aug 2018), and immerses herself in the Waters of PISCES, on May 3, 2019.

Freedom (AQ) allows for Oneness to emerge.
Having found our like-spirited community, we feel naturally, wildly connected, can relax and just be ourselves, in Oneness, and as the ONE.

With LILITH in AQ over the last 9 months, we hopefully found different, new, ‘upgraded’ community / social / cooperative friendships and alliances based on fairness, reciprocity, equality and… Freedom!
Wouldn’t work otherwise… since intrinsically Freedom loving LILITH would be out of it.
When our inner / the societal LILITH has found her community in Freedom ‘she’ feels connected and One with ALL.
There’s ease and flow.
Otherwise, when it’s not her vibe she’s ‘out of it’.

Ultimately, ‘wild’ LILITH represents our True, ‘Wild’ Nature that’s always FREE and in the ONE.

Sensing where this goes?
LILITH in PISCES will meet NEPTUNE (exact early Oct).
Rather than tapping into wild chaos, overwhelm or addiction, best to channel the energy into getting absorbed by the Unifying Field of LOVE.
LILITH will also go into sextile with SATURN / PLUTO in CAP in Sept / early Nov.
Which adds groundedness and purpose to the picture. How can your connectedness help others too?
What would be the highest purpose of the realization of your ISness?
No major challenging aspects for LILITH in PISCES – so ‘she’ can just roll & swim & surf the connectedness as ‘she’ pleases.

LILITH is 9 months in a Zodiac sign, and has a 9-year cycle.
‘She’ returns to the energy in our birth chart every 9 years.
I.o.w., at ages 9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72, 81, and 90, we have our LILITH Return.
Are you in one of these ages? Then your LILITH might be in PISCES and you have your LILITH Return!

 

Blessings for Wildness in ONEness!

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to Your ‘Inner Cosmic Compass’.

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with yourself in the bigger evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life.
I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified with them, and they don’t have to run your life.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

This is to empowered and liberating ways of working with the ancient and timeless gift of Astrology!

VENUS in PISCES (March 26 – Apr 20) ~ Love IS.

19 Mar

Dear Astro Friends in the Human ‘Field’, and Web of Connectedness,

VENUS in AQ (since March 1) has brought out our Love for Humanity and its Future.
Which brings people together to collaborate, be visionary – perhaps utopian, and innovative.

Well – massively demonstrated through the climate emergency school walkouts that took off / went ‘viral’ last Fri March 15.
Initiated by amazingly outspoken 16-year young activist Greta Thunberg (born under the mid-CAP New Moon – this year transited by SATURN, after a life-changing PLUTO impact), in her serious, moving, urgent appeal to students, and to humanity. She cuts right into the Heart of the issue in her TED Talk.
Please watch, and do what you feel called to!

 

The main theme for AQ is Freedom.
The Archetype VENUS will meet in AQ (on March 22) is LILITH – representing our ‘Wild & Free’ Nature – a double dose of Freedom in relationships, and initiated via the Feminine is ON, for the VENUSian Magnet.

With URANUS, the Ruler of AQ, since March 6 in TAURUS, the Zodiac sign ruled by VENUS, while VENUS has been in AQ  (ruled by URANUS) there’s recently a (‘double whammy’) mutual reception between them reinforcing their shared themes.
Very conducive to come together in circles of like-spirit beyond the ‘boundaries’ of convention and predictability.

 

On March 26, the VENUSian Wave rolls over into PISCES – Sail in the Waters of Love – All is ONE.

VENUS will cruise & connect in ‘her’ Zodiac energy of exaltation until Apr 20.

The most exquisite, undefined, ‘je ne sais quoi’ energy – call it ‘unconditional love’ / All IS Love – All IS Love’.  

With MERCURY presently retro, rolling out until early April, and also in PISCES, connecting with NEPTUNE twice more on March 24 / Apr 2 this vibration can lead us mere mortals also into disillusionment, confusion, disappointment, or unrequited scenarios, linked into victim consciousness / projections / putting the ‘adored one’ on a pedestal / having to take ourselves off the pedestal another puts us on.
An intertwined, entangled, enmeshed world… 

Or, we mentally-emotionally create self sabotaging victim scenarios.

All of this Mercurial mesh of PISCES can ‘inform’ VENUS’s entry into PI. Yet hopefully, conscious clearing and RE-lease has happened in the meantime (see M-r segment above) – the opportunity with M-r.

VENUS in PI is an energy of love and attraction that’s best expressed without attachment, and instead all-encompassing unconditional Love… 

Ideally (VENUS in PI is such an idealist, I should say…) this goes for any attractions and relationships, not just ‘special sweethearts’.

 

Preview for VENUS’s ‘Dates’ & ‘Dances’ with other Planetary Archetypes while ‘she’s in PISCES 


MARCH 27
VENUS freshly in PI in sextile with URANUS in TAU
Openness and non-attachment – flow with what IS and be Free!

 

APRIL 1
VENUS in PI is met by the PI MOON.
Can it be sweeter than this… (except in the 7th Heaven)?
Yet, don’t mix up the movie with a real person.
And swim away from confusing / overwhelming / toxic ‘media showers’.

 

APRIL 9
VENUS in PI meets (her ‘higher octave’) NEPTUNE.
Love comes in so many ways – and waves. Love IS.

 

APRIL 12
VENUS in PI in sextile with SATURN in CAP.
Wow, the ‘Ringed’ One meets VENUS – a commitment through connection – not to be taken lightly, says SATURN. Could be the ‘real deal’, yet without attachment (otherwise ‘she’ swims away…).

 

APRIL 14
VENUS in PI in sextile with PLUTO in CAP.
Connection beyond Time and ‘Death’.

 

APRIL 15
VENUS in PI squares JUPITER freshly retro (from Apr 11 on) in SAG.
Adventure calling – go with the flow, raise your vibration (hint: Love & Gratitude focus always helps…), and attract abundance from that space.

 

APRIL 20
The Day the SUN goes out of ARIES, and enters TAURUS:

VENUS enters ARIES
Emergence of the Warrior Goddess

 

Rumi: Let the Beauty of what you Love be what you Do

VENUS in PISCES in Your Chart & Life…

…can help your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planetary Archetypes in PISCES and the area/s of life relating to the House/s where PISCES is in your birth (and local) chart/s – to be a magnet for attracting partners and choices that are a good match through easy flow, resonance, and connectedness.

In the meantime / as always, there’s also a ‘match’ & mirror game going on, with VENUS showing you where you’re at, with Your Self Value and Self Love.
As in: How loving and compassionate are you with yourself?
Your attractions tend to mirror it.
You’re a vibrational match for what / whom you attract – which can be literally a mirror, or ‘the missing piece’.

VENUS at the end of AQ (meeting LILITH) and in PI (meeting NEPTUNE) transiting your… House in the next weeks is a Love & Value Magnet for you in these areas of your Life:

1st House:
Your Presence and Sense of Self

2nd House:
Your Values, what you own, literally & metaphorically, your Business

3rd House:
Your Environment

4th House:
Your Home, Origin, Ancestry

5th House:
Your Creative, Playful, Inner Child and Lover

6th House:
Your Work, Wellness, Lifestyle

7th House:
Your Partners & Significant Others

8th House:
Your Involvement and Sharing with Others, Your Transformations

9th House:
What gives you Meaning, Your Wisdom, Inspiration, Path and Travels

10th House:
Your Purpose incl Career, Your Public Self

11th House:
Your Social Side – Engagement with Society, Groups and Friends

12th House:
Your Transcendent and Spiritual Self and Union with All-that-Is.

 

Wishing You the Gifts of Love that Connects, with VENUS in PISCES!

Cuspy VIRGO – PISCES SuperMOON (Feb 19): Wholeness in Oneness

17 Feb

Dear Astro~News Reader,

Full Moon over the Mountains during the Sochi Winter Olympics on Feb 13, 2014. Credit: Odd Andersen /AFP/Getty Images)

 

Feeling the energy building?
She’s coming!
Special in so many ways:

 

  • The Biggest SuperMOON of the year is ‘on the horizon’ – literally:
    Hope we can see her in her glory in the morning hours before MOONset on Tue Feb 19, here from the West Coast perspective.
    The BIG Full Moon will be exact at 7:54 am PST (after Moonset / Sunrise).

 

  • It’s also quite unique astronomically since the MOON will appear throughout the night very close to Regulus, the Royal Star, and brightest one in the constellation LEO.

 

  • Astrologically, LUNA will be just over the ‘Sphinx Point’ cusp, on the 1st degree of VIRGO while the SUN will be on the first degree / day of PISCES:
    A Lunar Call to be in Self Awareness (LEO / VIR) –
    Who am I, what works for me, and how can I be of service to the whole, let AQ / PI Solar Consciousness shed on Community / Humanity, and bridge ‘both sides’ Me and Us All.

 

  • CHIRON the Centaur turned Warrior.

    The SuperSuper FULL MOON on Feb 19 ‘delivers’ and catalyzes CHIRON into ARIES, on the eve of the FM, Feb 18:

    …which brings themes for the next 8 years, such as:
    * Healing through showing up for ourselves, with bold, courageous action, or ‘simply’: Through emerging from the collective cocoon, and being fully present as ourselves.
    * Emergence of new Movements, societally and spiritually, for Waking up & Showing up!
    * Emergency to step into action, re: Climate and other urgent issues.
    A very cuspy & mutable Full Moon (see FM chart below): 

    So much in flux, and lots of shifts happening (incl. CHIRON entering ARIES, and URANUS going into TAURUS) – we better adapt and renew too.

 

  • The last Full Moon in WINTER 2018 / 19 (after the Winter Solstice FM on Dec 22, and the Total Lunar Eclipse FM on Jan 20 / 21) – the next Full Moon on March 20 will be just 4 hrs after the Spring Equinox!

 

  • The last Full Moon in the retro-free zone – no Planets retrograde between Jan 6 when URANUS went direct, and March 5 when MERCURY goes retro.

 

As with every Full Moon, and esp. with this SuperSuperMOON, it can be a very emotional phase, as things come to Fruition (think: Full Moon – Harvest Moon, and VIRGO), to be released (a la PISCES via the SUN plus MERCURY – soon retro – now close to NEPTUNE!).
Let’s allow it to BE (PI), and keep doing the practice (VIR) that keeps us healthy, whole, and connected, from which right action ‘in the world’ emerges naturally.

 

Neptune Rules Pisces
Painting by Johfra Bosschart

 

There’s a lot of planetary energy in PISCES in the Astro Weather – showing up for the Full Moon on Feb 19, and being led over into ARIES via CHIRON: Spring and New Life in Becoming!

 

The Full Moon in VIRGO on Feb 19 (see chart below) receives the reflection of the SUN freshly in PISCES, (the SUN will enter PI on Feb 18 at 3:04 pm PST), and MERCURY next to NEPTUNE in mid-PI, plus liberating LILITH in AQ surround the SUN.
What a cosmic tidal wave this can be, esp. mentally!
One thing leads to another, and all is interconnected.
Intensity and vulnerability through overwhelm and feeling lost….?

MERCURY in ‘exile’ in PI (ruling its opposite, organized VIR) can easily get overwhelmed and confused, since… all is connected.
And maybe ‘gone fishing’, meditating, or taking extra naps is the best way of allowing things to run their course and fall into place…

 

  • What’s the Medicine that PISCES offers, at this ‘grand finale’ and transition of CHIRON from PI to ARIES?
  • What’s the Practice that the VIRGO FULL MOON prescribes?

 

If you’re been feeling so much, and being sensitive to the collective energy, you’re not alone.
‘Their stuff?’ / Not yours?

Yes and no:
On a personal level, we don’t need to take in everyone’s woes, or critique their behaviour that we can’t change, and a healthy membrane is a good thing, like a well-functioning immune system. Good to take care of our own body-mind-spirit Temple, says VIRGO.


Yet energetically we’re all / all IS interwoven, connected, and ONE, in the flow of Life, shows PISCES – w
e’re spiritual Beings having a human experience. Something to take in and attune even more to, with MERCURY already and for a long time in in PI, plus soon to go retro (March 5 – 28).

 

You prob. heard the quote before: “Don’t sweat the small stuff – it’s all small stuff” (Very apropos VIRGO).
I disagree with the latter part. But it’s worth checking in whether a situation that upset us is actually ‘small stuff’ in the bigger context of things, and yet, why we feel it in such a BIG way? What’s the need behind it?

A spiritual teacher said:
“Do you experience the suffering (as a phenomenon that comes and goes) with compassion, or do you (as in: you personally) suffer the experience?”
And: “The Person has / is the Problem. Presence just IS.”

VIRGO represents the individualized Self, in that sense ‘the Person’ while PISCES represents Presence with / in / as Energy.
The VIRGO SuperSuper Moon calls us to be aware of what makes us feel / take things so personally even though it might be ‘just random’ / accidental / part of the human condition.
Not to over-analyze and re-affirm ‘the problem’, rather to simply be with it and watch it run its course…

 

Waves are coming in… – Photo by Melanie, Jan 2019

 

On the PISCES ‘side’ (which is an oxymoron, since PI is all-encompassing), some of us sentient and sensitive ones are very attuned to the ‘psychic weather’ / oceanic atmosphere around us.

Maybe we came with this gift (which can sometimes feel like a curse – a la CHIRON in PI over the last 8-9 years), or it was evoked early in life.

 

  • Can you, the empathic Person, avoid being drawn into everyone’s emotional field, and experiencing it as your own?
  • And what of that IS actually a reflection of you?
    The Sphinx Point Self Awareness and VIRGO discernment sure help.
  • Can you let go, release the need to do something with what happened, and allow things to be as they are?
  • Can you let people be who they are, rather than trying to do something about it? 
  • Have you noticed how your (PISCEAN) vibration actually changes them / the situation in a better way than your (VIR) need to ‘fix’ or ‘reform’ them?
  • How do you bring yourself, and what brings you back into alignment (VIR) with your true Soul Nature?


Things flow so much easier (PI), and the Universe ‘has our back’ when we’re true to ourselves.
Magic and synchronicities are our companions, life is more fun and joy, and we’re naturally led to do what we’re best at, and meet people on the way whom we resonate and co-create with.

Versus trying to be everything to everybody, bending over backwards, protecting your image and social status, and building up a fake persona, not wanting to loose face in the eyes of others, and being more perfect than you are, etc.
All of that takes so much energy, comes from the ego, and actually goes against what nature intended for us:
To be authentically ourselves.
HA – seems like CHIRON going into ARIES on the eve of the FM agrees wholeheartedly.

In this sense, more BEING in natural alignment, and less ego directed DOING (as a compensation mode) is what the Astro Doc prescribes, always, and esp. brought out by this VIRGO – PISCES Super FULL MOON.
Noticing and being aware (a VIRGO specialty) of what’s going on are the first steps to nature-ally re-align.

 

How does the VIRGO ‘Priestess’ and ‘Earth Angel’ in us show up in this?

 

Virgo and Mercury Painting by Johfra Bosschart

 

Let’s be aware (VIR) and in a loving, open, neutral place (PI), with the washing up and out of old emotions, thoughts and vibrations.

Maybe even residues of the whole PISCES Age era, our connection with / in it and conditioning by it,  showing up via MERCURY (soon retro), in triple contact with NEPTUNE (Feb 18, March 24, Apr 2).
Hints: The Victim – Perpetrator – Saviour – Martyr dynamic…

HOW to (a VIRGO approach) release all THAT?
I hear VIRGO getting concerned…

Impossible to resolve it all with a ‘strategy’, ‘method’, or ‘fix’, or by analysis…

We can’t keep these collective-connective waves from coming.
But we can learn and practice surfing and navigating them skillfully
 (that’s where VIRGO comes in) and, rather than judging and resisting, BE with it all (PISCES) in a good vibration, and loving, heart-ful way.

 

“You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn how to surf.” (Jon Kabat-Zinn)

 

What are these themes are for You that are getting washed up – to be released?
They can be also seen in your chart – esp. where the VIRGO – PISCES axis is (houses, planets…).

We can expose ourselves to the cosmic, universal,  unified and unifying PISCEAN Field, transmitted by the SUN, MERCURY & NEPTUNE.
And channel the energy into this human dimension, by tuning into the
 grounding gifts of Grandmother MOON in VIRGO, sign of the Sacred Feminine and Triple Goddess.

How can Your cosmic gifts be actualized, put into service, and help You be in alignment with Your cosmic assignment?

 

 

The VIRGO – PISCES Full Moon Chart

The VIR – PI Full Moon will be exact at 7:54 am PST on Feb 19 – first full day in PISCES 2019.

Immediately obvious:

We’re in a VERY PISCEAN realm, from our West Coast perspective – balanced by the VIRGO MOON.

 

PISCES Rising, with its Ruler NEPTUNE on the AC, together with MERCURY (which conversely is the Ruler of VIRGO).
The ‘Messenger’ is for a very long time in the PISCEAN oceanic realm this year: Since Feb 10, until Apr 16, and shall go retro there too (March 5 – 28)!
MERCURY in PI is attuning us to openness, connectedness, and fluidity of the Mind.

The SUN freshly in PI (from Feb 18 on), will have just risen at the exact Full Moon time, and therefore be also in the Piscean 12th House – nice natural alignment! –, not far from liberating LILITH in AQ. Being in the vaster Energy Field and tuning into Oneness of / as All-That-Is…
The SUN on the AQ – PI ‘Coherence Point’ invites us as ‘We’re all in This Together’ to tune into shared vibrations with other Human Beings (rather than separation).
Spiritual gatherings where joined group vibrations are being offered would be very welcomed (always, and esp. for this Full Moon).

 

The essence of timeless Tao Wisdom:
Yin-Yang Balance is always dynamic and interwoven.

The SUN /  NEPTUNE / MERCURY ‘field’ in PI show us:

All is unified and ONE.

Letting go of mental hooks and hang-ups (MERCURY in PI), or of being caught in the collective web would be so healing.
Perhaps through sound, music, dance, and vibrational medicine.

MERCURY in PI responds to those ‘messages’, rather than being more inundated, confused, and hypnotized by ‘news’.
Not a suggestion to put the head into the sand.
Rather an opport-Unity to let go, and tune into deeper messages.

As we immerse fully into the PISCEAN field there is just energy, a ‘quantum soup’.
Which can be overwhelming and chaotic, for the individualized, ‘separate’ human personal self. Examples are everywhere, incl. the constant influx / inundation of media (also ruled by PISCES), paradoxically creating FOMO (fear of missing out) – when we experience ourselves as separate from ‘them’.
I guess you’re getting the picture…. 

Interconnectedness of ALL can, for our separate identity, be overwhelming, confusing, make us vulnerable – or make us want to escape, be ‘addicted’ to ‘the state of bliss and union’, etc.
The invitation is to experience and merge in the field of Oneness.

The SUN now entering PISCES (Feb 18 – March 20) also brings Solar Consciousness to the bigger, longer, and more transpersonal influences of NEPTUNE in PISCES 2012 – 2026, and CHIRON in PISCES 2010 – 2019 – which leaves PI literally on the same day as the SUN enters PI, Feb 18 – – the eve of the Super Full Moon.

So much is coming together now…

Allow it, and allow yourself to BE.
Maybe that means letting go of, forgiving, releasing something, some ‘disappointment’, ‘illusion’, etc. (chances are in the area of life related to PI in your chart).

CHIRON now leaving PISCES has shown over the last decade how old, early, time-transcending wounds came up in this process (esp. for those of us born in the 1960’s under CHIRON in PI, and anyone with PI placements).
As James Hillman summed it up in a Jungian seminar in Victoria a few years ago:
There are two basic early childhood wounds: Abandonment and overwhelm (invasion, abuse). We might have experienced one more than the other, or both in combination. We might have experienced one more than the other, or both in combination.
They often lead to addiction – as an escape, and / or substitute for genuine connection…
Real connection is Healing.

 

A Review of the effects of CHIRON in PISCES over the last decade would be quite helpful and integrative.
In our CHIRON into ARIES Parlour – 3 groups on Feb 20 & 28 we shall also in the circle review CHIRON in PISCES, and the Medicine it has brought to everyone.

Crystal activated Voyager card XVII – Star, showing Kuan Yin, Goddess of Compassion – Photo and crystal activation by Melanie

I call the AQ – PI cusp also ‘Kuan Yin Point’ – This female Buddha offers Compassion for Humanity and All Life Forms.

 

Often we have to feel what’s now ripe to be healed. There may be catalysts that bring out the old wounds – to be also healing agents.

Rather than spiritually bypassing the wounds, or indulging in them, or escaping into addictive behaviour, how can we do our part in letting go and healing (NEPTUNE, CHIRON, and MOON in VIR)?

 

The Full MOON in VIR – PISCES, together with the North Node now (until June 2020) in CANCER invites us to invoke Divine Mother / Goddess energy that is always available to support us and all sentient Beings. Like Kuan Yin, Mother Mary…

We can’t ‘do it all’ but we can ask for assistance from Higher dimensions… See how your energy shifts…!

Maybe it helps us with dropping resistance and separation, and, rather than trying to armour ourselves against the ‘tsunami of energy’ (since as sensitive souls we tend to take things in, and they sit and stick there, and possibly contaminate our inner environment) we can ask and allow the energy to gently leave us.

NEPTUNE in PI’s need for Connection and Oneness with the Great Mother, the Universe, the All, can lead to ‘looking for Love at the wrong places’, going on a compensation course via addictions of all sorts that promise to let the ‘me’ go away for a while, but hey, it does come back each time, which can turn into a painful vicious cycle.

These ‘depleting’ tendencies can be met by our awareness of wholeness (Full Moon in VIR) from which healing and renewed Consciousness that-IS (PI SUN) can come.
Practices that lead us to a physical, sensate awareness of wholeness, like mindfulness meditation, Yoga, walks in Nature help, ideally integrated into our life as a healthy routine (VIR).

What are other concrete practices, maybe healthy rituals you can DO (VIRGO) that help us come back into Oneness with / in Life?

 

VIRGO is the energy of the Harvest Goddess,  Priestess, and Sacred Feminine who is whole and complete, clear and aligned with her sacred Self which keeps her / us in Integrity.

VIRGO practices self-awareness, and tends to ‘her’ body-mind-spirit Temple through clearing, discernment, sacred and spiritual practice, such as ceremony and ritual.

Which means in our practical daily life:
A body / health / wellness / nutrition practice and lifestyle.
A healthy body in a healthy spirit.
Honouring ourselves and our body-temple.
Practice Is Perfect.

  • Is there a practice you can adopt right now that would benefit your well being? Something simple and self-sufficient, like – cell phone free walks, Yoga, exercise, getting more regularly fresh air? 
  • Which ‘recipes, remedies, and rituals’ would your inner Mentor prescribe? Like: adding / removing something from your diet, sleep, work style and hours, certain practices that make you overall happier and healthier, a morning ritual? 
  • Is there something is ripe and ready now to be harvested, as in: let go of? 
  • Would a ceremony help release something old and outlived, and / or help invite beneficial cosmic energies?

 

 

Other Cosmic Energies in the SuperMOON ‘Field’

Mountain Medicine

Yes, still a lot of CAPRICORN energy too, activated by VENUS:

VENUS now in CAP (Feb 3 – March 1), on the ‘Integrity Point’ – a magnet to attract what’s ‘real’ and in integrity / really works for us, while ‘in the meantime’ it’s also a ‘match’ & mirror for where we’re at, with our self value and self love.

VENUS will have just met SATURN (once a year) on Feb 18:
What are you ready to commit to, from your Heart, and because it’s Time?
And what’s done & complete (even though you used to love it)?

On Feb 22 – 24, VENUS will meet PLUTO and the South Node in CAP:
Deep and karmic Soul Connections and Attractions are showing up, with the South Node, rather ‘of the past’, ancient and timeless, yet also to release (South Node) old patterns that don’t serve anymore (end of CAP has also VIR undertone, just as early VIR has CAP undertone, a mutually activated theme).
Be in Your Integrity NOW. Mountain Medicine.

 

 

 

Tune into Your Heart Gifts!

JUPITER has come a long way in its own domain of SAGITTARIUS (since Nov 8, 2018, until Dec 2, 2019).
It’s starting to slow down now, to go retro for 4 months, from Apr 10 on.

MERCURY while for a long time in PI (incl. its retro phase in March) will go 3 times (before, during, and after retro) into square with JUPITER in SAG: Feb 22, March 15, and Apr 11.
Which is also a reflection of the triple square between JUPITER and NEPTUNE in PI this year (1st one was JAN 13).

Let’s tune into Messages beyond our rational thinking, and receive the gifts of their Wisdom, showing us about the interwoven Fabric of Life.
Let’s allow things to be fluid and easy, offer and receive messages-as-gifts, tap into abundance mode, rather than feeling overwhelmed. Letting the Heart direction & connections unfold…

 

Awakening (through) the Body, and EmBodying Awakeness

Lastly, another cuspy activation, on the ‘Settling / Embodiment Point’ from ARIES to TAURUS…

…via URANUS, at the very end of ARIES – to move into TAURUS with the next New Moon, on March 6, and MARS which recently ‘settled’ in TAU (Feb 14 – March 30).

MARS in TAURUS followed by URANUS helps us with grounding and embodying Spirit-in-Matter, while Awakening (through) the Body, and EmBodying Awakeness.

More about URANUS into TAURUS coming up soon, in ASTRO~NEWS!

CHIRON in late PISCES goes retro: Inner Journey into Oneness

1 Jul
Chiron

Chiron the Wounded Healer / Centaur

Big News of the day (yes, besides Canada 150 – and related to it!):
CHIRON
 changed ‘gears’ from direct into retro mode (July 1 – Dec 5).

The whole month of July has a CHIRON flavour.
And Canada has its 3rd  CHIRON return (every 50 years) also in 2017.

Late PI where CHIRON ‘sits’ has an extra PI ‘undertone’ – it all comes together, and yet is elusive – or overwhelming, interwoven and all-connective.
This can show up in ‘wounded syndromes’ of: feeling overwhelmed yet never really ‘getting anywhere’, feeling lost, confused, deluded, weakened, esp. in the immune system, feeling like giving up.


And for Canada, there’s definitely a lot up now, in the interwoven field of reconciliation with First Nations, unceded territories, a lot of paradoxes…., a lot of questions re: what are we celebrating? Colonization? Whose land?

I’d refer to the timeless wisdom quote:

What’s the ‘healing agent’ with a ‘Like Heals Like’ on a personal level, when things get a bit ‘too much’?

How about:
Tapping into Oneness, where ALL is already and always HERE. 
Literally being by or in the Water, relaxing, releasing, soaking up the oceanic energy that’s freely available…? 
Exposing ourselves to music and dance, sound therapy, yoga, meditation, anything that brings us back into a place of unity in life, from which all ‘comes together’ quite naturally…?

A big shift is coming next year, as CHIRON (in PI since Feb 2011) will enter ARIES (for a short time mid Apr – end of Sept 2018, and eventually end of Feb 2019) where it hasn’t been in almost 50 years.
A ‘wounded warrior’ theme? An emergence of shamans? Vulnerability yet also in-built medicine of a ‘precedent’ of sorts? The birth of SELF and a new way of being? Hmmm, at this point, it seems still elusive and mysterious. To be revealed… (next year, JUPITER will be also in SCORPIO).

In any case, CHIRON in now (June / July) on the very end of PI – 29° (in transition to AR) = on the ‘Emergence / Birthing Point’, where out of the ALL a new life form and potentiality is almost emerging – yet at this point re-tracing into the ocean of oneness.
Let’s find our Medicine in THIS.

CANCER New Moon (June 23 / 24), with MERCURY and MARS: Longings to Belong.

23 Jun

Warm SUMMER Greetings,

dear Reader in beautiful Victoria, on Vancouver Island, on the Pacific West Coast, or physically further away on Planet Earth, yet well connected, in our Cosmically Attuned Astro Community!

Uhhh – can you FEEL the Call of the Water?
The WATER Element of sensitivity, caring, belonging, and all things emotional, is all of a sudden so present astrologically, since MARS, on Solstice of course the SUN, and also MERCURY, today also the MOON are all in CANCER, while NEPTUNE and CHIRON keep cruising in PISCES (see New Moon chart below).

 

Dolphin Mates

So let’s be gentle, and tune into the Fluidity of Life.
Our emotions and needs keep changing (CAN), while the energetic Fabric of Life shows us that we all are, and all IS connected.

Actually, there is just Oneness of Life (PI) in its many forms.

 

 

Welcoming the First Summer 2017 New Moon!

 

Moon Goddess

 

Here she comes:

The FIRST New Moon in Summer 2017 happens this evening Friday, June 23, at 7:31 pm PDT at 3° CANCER – La Luna’s zodiacal ‘home domain’.

Three more Summer New Moons to follow, incl. the BIG ONE, on AUG 21:
JULY 23: Initial LEO New Moon (with MARS!)
AUG 21: End of LEO / Sphinx Point New Moon / Total Solar Eclipse!
SEPT 19 / 20: End of VIRGO New Moon.

Even though, we’re (here in the Northern Hemisphere) in the height of the SOLAR Year – this week, the Solstice SUN is bright and dominant, and the daylight hours are the longest – BALANCE happens, as we’re entering a very LUNAR phase, with the CANCER New Moon – La Luna’s very abode.
After lots of Spring ‘buzz and fuzz’, this and that, information and learning, in the GEMINI season, we’re now dropping from the AIR into the WATER Element, from thinking and communicating to feeling and resonating.

I call the GEM – CAN cusp of the Zodiac also the ‘Gathering Point’:
We might have gathered a lot of information, made new contacts, learned a lot, and brought it all into your space. On a relational level, early Summer is a natural time to gather as family, friends, tribes, and communities. Gathering (ideally) is an expression, or creates a sense of Belonging – very Cancerian.

Johfra Bosschart Cancer


Can you feel the pull of the Ocean Mama, back to Home Sweet Home?

Whatever Home means to you: Literally to your physical Home, to your Family, to your Spirit Home, to the Land you call Home, or to the Home of your Innermost BEING….?

What are you ‘conceiving’ of these days?
Where do you feel you belong?

The CANCER New Moon is the natural time for new beginnings, when it comes to all themes round home, nurturance, and belonging.

 

The essence of timeless Tao Wisdom:
Yin-Yang Balance is always dynamic and interwoven.

I always feeling strange, and like something’s off when the New Moon is being described as a time to ‘set new intentions’ which, if at all, is just one side of the energy: the yang / masculine one!!! What about the yin / feminine one, of being open and receptive, to be a vessel for conception?!

YES, a New MOON is Conception Energy!
SUN and MOON come together, like Yang and Yin.


When we ARE in a Yin/Yang Union at the New Moon, we are aligned with the rhythms of nature.
The yin / lunar Cancerian quality is very motherly, caring, gentle, nurturing for our needs.
The yang / solar Cancerian quality is very fatherly, and consciously creates safe tribal and family ‘hubs’.


Where early CANCER falls in your chart
(houses, planets there) is where a seed is being planted, where ‘conception’ and new beginnings take place (‘in the dark’, for the time being), when it comes to caring and belonging:

Examples:
Early CAN in your 2nd house: A new ‘conception’ of what you value about belonging – and literally for your physical home;

Early CAN in your 5th house: New beginnings for nurturing your Inner Child, your children, and of your creativity; 
Early CAN in your 11th house: New start for your home and belonging in a community….

 

Canada Features Maple LeafAND, this is the beginning of the Lunar Cycle that contains Canada Day (July 1) and U.S. Independence Day (July 4):
Many Tribes, One Nation?! What is it that we call HOME? How do we make sure everybody can feel welcome and belong?

I’ll write a blog post for Canada Day
150 years since the Canadian Confederation (French: Confédération canadienne) was created, as the British colonies of Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick were united into one Dominion of Canada on July 1, 1867.

Of course, taking a look at the ‘birth chart’ of the Canadian Confederation, and its evolution.

You’re welcome to join our COSMIC CANADA Astro~Events on June 28:
The Astro~Embodiment of the Canada chart(!) in the afternoon, and in the evening :
Canada and YOU / Canada et VOUS – a workshop to explore your astrological relationship with the country!

Voila, here’s the FB Event.
Welcome / Bienvenue at either or both in combo!


Let’s visit the CANCER New Moon chart.

And see what else shows up in the Cancerian and otherwise ‘cosmic landscape’:

CAN NM 2017

 

OH! Not ‘just’ the SUN / MOON in Cancerian Union, also MERCURY closely linked to them, and MARS in CANCER ahead of the trio, pulling the CANCER energy.

The SUN is now travelling with MARS (you can picture MARS next to the SUN in the sky!), until mid Aug. The SUN will pass MARS in July 26, right after the super fiery LEO New Moon. That looks like a HOT SUMMER, in many ways…

This week, lots of action coming from and to MARS… which is traditionally considered ‘challenged’ in the sphere of CANCER where a lot of old emotions, esp. anger, are stirred into action. The upside: needs can be more strongly asserted than otherwise.
Let’s not allow our ego wants and ‘needs’ dominate consciousness, yet use this energy to pro-actively offer care and nurturing to ourselves and other beings with whom we feel kinship. 

MARS ‘drives’ the New Moon energy, while it also links to JUPITER (in square exactly on June 24), NEPTUNE (the trine is exact on June 25), and LILITH (their quincunx is exact on June 27). All these alignments are catalyzed through the New Moon, and are showing up together in the cosmic ‘field’.

  • MARS square stat. JUPITER  in LIBRA (June 24) shows where conflict and disturbance of balance can arise when an encounter is not a natural complementary match, and contrasting needs clash. If complementary energies are present this energy is rather stimulating – an interesting ‘test’.
  • MARS trine stat. / retro NEPTUNE in PI (June 25) smooths situations out, when we roll with the changing needs, and are fluid and adaptable. It’s not a win-loose situation, rather a dance of energies.
  • MARS quincunx LILITH in SAG is about coordinating notions for belonging and care with freedom and space. Hopefully, there’s room for both simultaneously.
  • MARS, JUPITER, LILITH, and SATURN are linked into a rare ‘Trapezoid figure’ – can you see it?
    This configuration of planetary energies round Planet Earth combines and synthesizes different learning figures into one whole, closed circuit.

    The growth through learning that’s available now is charged and driven by the two dynamic squares: MARS square JUPITER, and LILITH square NEPTUNE (was exact June 21).
    I.o.w. when it comes to needs and wants in relationships
    (MARS in CAN – JUPITER in LI), we are called to choose well, so that our needs are naturally nurtured, and to take care of them personally anyway.
    The other one
    (LILITH – NEPTUNE) is about being honest and authentic, free and  on one’s path, while practicing ‘live and let live’, in the flow of life.

 

And then there’s MARS – PLUTO… between Canada Day and Independence Day.

The transpersonal, collective energy of PLUTO in CAP is transforming us, as we go through the ‘birth canal of consciousness’, in this World in Change. The more we ARE in integrity with the Change we wish to SEE (even in ‘small’ ways – the vibration matters) and live in simplicity the more we sense the energy that carries and renews us!

MARS now in CANCER, on the opposite side of PLUTO, its ‘higher octave’ (MARS is about personal will and assertion, and PLUTO about higher power). MARS will go into exact opposition to PLUTO on July 2 – once every 2 years. This can trigger change and realignment, on personal levels, esp. when it comes to the polarity between ‘what we personally want and need’ and ‘what matters most’. As with any opposition, our ‘job’ is to ‘marry’ the two.
MARS – PLUTO, exact on July 2, will be also a ‘signature’ for Canada Day (and there’s already a lot of controversy around Canada 150, and sensitivity around “Are we celebrating Colonialism???” “How can Truth and Reconciliation be put into action, how does it look like, and how can it evolve?”), and of U.S. Independence Day (well, lots of heated debates down the border which could come to a head on another level).

 

VENUS in TAU trine PLUTO retro in CAP (exact tomorrow June 24): Valuing and Attracting what’s Solid and ‘Real’, throughout Change.

The CANCER NEW MOON is also a Conception for an earthy ‘liaison’ between VENUS in ‘her abode’ of TAURUS with PLUTO retro in mid-CAP.
A welcome grounding effect, that can look like:

  • Let’s stick with what’s simple, choose quality that proves itself over time, and enjoy what’s here and real, in the NOW, like: the gifts of Nature.
  • In this world of change, what’s solid and of tangible value?
  • Drawn to traditions and Elders? A good time to (re?)establish connections.
  • Let’s appreciate deep relationships that prevail through times of change.

 

CHIRON in late PISCES goes retro on July 1:
Inner Journey into Oneness

Chiron

Chiron with the Wounding Arrow

Perhaps the inner ‘SoUlution’ to the longings to belong and to be in ‘right relationship…

June and July are quite Chiron-ic months, since CHIRON is now a stationary (slow moving) focus, as it changes ‘gears’ from direct into retro mode (July 1 – Dec 5).

Late PI has also a PI ‘undertone’ – it all comes together, and yet is elusive.
This can show up in ‘wounded syndromes’ of: feeling overwhelmed yet never really ‘getting anywhere’, feeling lost, confused, deluded, weakened, esp. in the immune system, feeling like giving up.

What’s the ‘healing agent’ with a ‘Like Heals Like’ approach (very Piscean, and Chironic)?

How about:
Tapping into Oneness, where ALL is already and always HERE.
Literally being by or in the Water, relaxing, releasing, soaking up the oceanic energy that’s freely available…?
And / or exposing ourselves to music and dance, sound therapy, yoga, meditation, anything that brings us back into a place of unity in life, from which all ‘comes together’ quite naturally…?

A big shift is coming next year, as CHIRON (in PI since Feb 2011) will enter ARIES (for a short time mid Apr – end of Sept 2018, and eventually end of Feb 2019) where it hasn’t been in almost 50 years.
A ‘wounded warrior’ theme? An emergence of shamans? Vulnerability yet also in-built medicine of a ‘precedent’ of sorts? The birth of SELF and a new way of being? Hmmm, at this point, it seems still elusive and mysterious. To be revealed… (next year, JUPITER will be also in SCORPIO).

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS:

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to YOUR INNER ‘COSMIC COMPASS’.

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’ those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with the bigger evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘HUB OF THE WHEEL’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’ and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life.
I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified WITH them, and they don’t have to run your life.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

NEPTUNE in PISCES retro (June 16 – Nov 22) – and MOON / NEPTUNE today: Connectivity without Co-Dependency

16 Jun

Have you recently felt overwhelmed by information and possibilities, yet going nowhere?
Where is this going? What’s the direction?
Have you been questioning everything?
Have you been in a maze, blues, blah mode, aimless, passive, confused, maybe even depressed, drifting, dreaming, feeling disillusioned, disappointed, feeling like checking out and escaping ‘reality’ lately,  and / or ‘hooked’ on something that has turned into an addiction?

Seems like you’re tuning into a low grade expression of NEP-TUNE’s turnaround mode, with a ‘dash’ of SATURN / LILITH in SAG. Which can easily happen these days.
Why?

 

NEPTUNE is a V.I.P.

Neptune

Neptunian ‘Portrait’ by NASA’s Hubble – Doesn’t it look like tie dyed? 🙂

= a Very Important Planet this month, since it’s on a turnaround course (twice a year) from Earth perspective, exact today, June 16, hence moving very slowly all of June, and becoming an energetic focal point.
NEPTUNE will be retro until Nov 22 (a yearly rhythm of 5 months retro / 7 months direct).

Good to be aware of the NEPTUNE Archetype, and able to recognize what’s up when we’re getting ‘hooked’, what alternative higher vibrational expressions may look like, and how to tune into those.

 

NEPTUNE has been also involved in the SAG – GEM Full Moon on June 9, and is presently activated by a square from LILITH in SAG (exact June 21) and a water trine from MARS in CANCER (exact on June 25):

Surfing the energy field that is naturally available, dancing with Life, surrendering to what-IS, moving with care and compassion, holding space in Oneness, riding energy waves with flow and ease, without resisting nor getting unhealthily entangled or enmeshed in co-dependency (shadow of PI), is the way to (Let) Go.

 

We are all in THIS together…

Earth YinYang

June 8 was World Oceans Day, raising awareness for the Beauty and vital Importance of the World Oceans.

Just as the Oceans and atmosphere connect us, we are now (well, always have been, but perhaps even more aware, since CHIRON and NEPTUNE have been in PI, 2010 and 2012) experiencing how everything connects with everything, in a limitless energetic continuum. The veils between dimensions, incl. Time and Space have become more and more permeable.

 Remember when people were talking about the theory of ‘six degrees of separation’ , but hey – since NEPTUNE moved into PISCES (2012 – 2026) the experience of separation through Time and Space has more and more morphed into interconnectedness anyway. Internet and media allow (or hook?) us to be continuously plugged in and connected (at least to and through technology – which is now omni-available, ever since NEPTUNE sailed through AQ from 1998 – 2012).

We’re swimming in, or rather: AS, a collective and universal field of energy – all connective and vibrational, atmospheric and boundary-less. 
Well, solid form is an illusion anyway.

Since the slow moving planets NEPTUNE (2012 – 2026) and CHIRON (2010 – 2018) are in PISCES, there’s a flood of influences and confluences, maybe overwhelming (NEPTUNE), and weakening / or we might feel vulnerable (CHIRON).
Our individual (which is of course an illusion) identity that experiences him / herself separate, yet has a need to feel connected.
Where to turn?
How to turn connectedness on?

Heart_Meditation

The last 1 1/2 years of the South Node in PISCES and the North Node in VIRGO (Fall 2015 – Spring 2017) showed us how important it is to discern what to immerse ourselves into, and how to find healthy (re)alignment in ourselves – the body is a temple – what do you allow to come in? What are healthy alignment practices and rituals to keep us in integrity, AND connected?

Yoga has become a big phenomenon, and a lot of people turned to a spectrum spiritual (PI) practices (VIR) – all showing the way (SAG) to / AS the ONE (PI).

 

So, what’s with codependency?

PISCEAN energy is about connection.
It’s a transpersonal, universal energy though. When ‘drawn into’ inter-personal realms, there can be a need to connect into a no-boundary / ‘endless’ state with someone that’s quite unhealthy, and doesn’t allow for breathing space or closure, often based on various early life experiences (often neglect, confusing bonding, or overwhelm / abuse) that the PISCEAN ‘person’ unconsciously tries to compensate for, to ‘get the loving connection’, yet s/he might re-attract similar situations as s/he looks for love at the wrong places with the same vibration.

A while ago, I saw a video based on the experiences and teachings of Gabor Mate that showed how addiction is a misdirected need for connection (both so Piscean!).
In German, the words for seeking (Suche) and addiction (Sucht) have the same root.
“Still haven’t found what I’m looking for…”.

Our Piscean Age that humanity is just about to outgrow has compounded such patterns and tendencies with, simplistically put, the classic co-dependent triad of victim – perpetrator – martyr / saviour.
Always good to check in and be self-aware (VIRGO) which role/s (maybe two at once) we might play in a difficult situation – and release it.

The essence of timeless Tao Wisdom: Yin-Yang Balance is always dynamic and interwoven.

Pisces and the Paradox

With PISCES, the approach is paradoxical (“Let go, relax, and it comes to you, you can’t ‘get’ it… (LOVE?) what you already have or rather: are….”), and transpersonal (“Don’t take it personally!” Is that possible?)

I’m sure there’ll be more downloads and releases from NEPTUNE now freshly retrograde in PISCES…
May the Universe-All Love show us: All is connected. May we relax into this, breathe out and let go, and let the inbreath come naturally…

 

Beware the Agenda, and be FREE!

SATURN and now also LILITH (Feb 13 – Nov 8) in SAG are also regulative Archetypes, showing us that it’s liberating when we don’t get drawn into all the allure and agenda, and stay focused and Heart connected.
A walk outdoors (SAG), literally by the Water, can be wondrous (PI) in itself. And ‘real’ connectedness doesn’t depend on the umbilical cord of the media, nor on substances that take us temporarily into boundless states.

LILITH now (exact June 21) square NEPTUNE creates a dynamic tension between openness, surrender, oneness (NEPTUNE) and being true to ourselves (LILITH), and also what reconciles them: Being in our True Nature and Heart-Field IS connective!

NEPTUNE is a transpersonal planet – actually the ‘higher octave’ of VENUS. In other words, we are personally attracted to and connected with one another via VENUS, while NEPTUNE is about… being connected.

It can be super simple to live in that fluid awareness – as long as we don’t go into the illusion of separateness which the mind, the ego, and other gremlins constantly try to lure us into… – and then some external authorities (SATURN) give us a ‘way out’, a ‘solution’…
Yet we don’t need to follow the inner / outer Pied Pipers showing up in many shapes and forms… incl. the flute of omnipresent media.

  • Does it take extra stimuli (maybe increased dosage) to lose yourself in something ‘bigger’, and drop your sense of separate identity?
  • Can you BE immediately, already in the space that having / doing what such and such…. promises to take you to?
  • Do you already have (access to) the resources / solutions – are they within??? – when someone ‘out there’ lures you to take you to ‘The Promise Land’ 🙂 

 

What a miraculous mirage!

… that NEPTUNE in its own domain PISCES (2012 – 2026) shows us:
All is fluid, ever changing, yet everything is always here.
There is nothing constant about life, about you, yet something permeates existence. Big paradoxes. Wherever you go, there you are.
Yet where is the Self to be found (let’s contemplate THIS)?

Humanity and all life forms are interconnected. We see that now inevitably on all levels, ecologically, climate wise, via the media, politically, economically, culturally.
