VIRGO – Super-PISCES Full Moon @ 11:22: Self-Aligning in the Flow of Life

28 Feb

Dear Astro~News Reader,

She’s coming!

  • The last Full Moon in WINTER 2017 / 18 (after the New Year’s SuperMoon on Jan 1, and the Total Lunar Eclipse / Blue Moon / SuperMoon on Jan 31)!
  • Wow, so rare, to have TWO Full Moons in January (1 & 31), NO Full Moon in February, and again TWO Full Moons in March (1 & 31)!
  • The last Full Moon in the Zodiac cycle this year, with the SUN in PISCES – and the MOON in VIRGO.
  • The last Full Moon in the retro-free zone (no planets retrograde, between Jan 2 when URANUS went direct, and March 8 when JUPITER goes retro).

As with every Full Moon, it can be a very emotional phase, and things come to fruition (think: Full Moon – Harvest Moon, and VIRGO) to be released (PISCES SUN plus 4 planetary Archetypes in PI!).

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, since on a personal level you don’t need to take in everyone’s woes, and a healthy membrane is a good thing, like a well-functioning immune system.
Yet energetically we’re all / all IS interwoven, connected, and ONE, in the flow of life.

We’re spiritual beings having a human experience.
Do you experience the suffering (as a phenomenon that comes and goes) with compassion, or do you (as in: you personally) suffer the experience?

Some of us sentient and sensitive ones are very attuned to the ‘psychic weather’ / atmosphere around us, maybe we came with this gift (that can sometimes feel like a curse), maybe it has been a survival training in early childhood – we learned to adapt or escape.

How do you, the empathetic person X, avoid being drawn into everyone’s emotional field, and experiencing it as my own?
And what of that IS actually a reflection of you (VIRGO discernment comes handy)?
How do I let go and allow things to be washed away?
How do you bring yourself, and what brings you back into alignment (VIR) with your true soul nature?
Why would you want this?

Because things flow so much easier (PI) and the Universe has our back when we’re true to ourselves. Magic and synchronicities are our companions and life is joy.
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, 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.

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 – SuperPISCES FULL MOON.

Not always easy… diagnosing what’s going on, and being aware (a VIRGO specialty) is the first step to re-aligning.

There’s a lot of planetary energy in PISCES in the Astro Weather – showing up for the Full Moon on March 1, and gradually moving over to ARIES (starting with MERCURY and VENUS on March 5 / 6 – Spring in Becoming!

The Full Moon in VIRGO on March 1 (see chart below) receives the reflection of the SUN in PISCES, next to NEPTUNE (the SUN will pass NEPTUNE on Sunday March 4) in mid-PI (= SCO undertone), MERCURY, VENUS, and CHIRON in late PISCES (= double PI).
What a cosmic tidal wave! One thing leads to another, and all is interconnected.

Intensity and vulnerability through overwhelm and feeling lost….?

  • What’s the medicine that PISCES offers, led by CHIRON?
  • What’s the practice that the VIRGO FULL MOON prescribes?

 

How does the VIRGO ‘Priestess’ and ‘Earth Angel’ in us (whether we live in a as a male or female body) show up in this?

Virgo and Mercury, painting by Johfra Bosschart

 

First of all: Let’s be aware (VIR) and in a loving, open, neutral place (PI), with the washing up and out of old vibrations. Maybe even residues of the whole PISCES Age era, and our connection with it / conditioning by it?
And allow things to be purged and transformed (SCO undertone, and Water trine from JUPITER in SCO – which happens to be also stationary (going retro on March 8).

Around March 8 (one week before and after) is actually a very powerful, and transformational time (of course also good for clearing in a practical way).

 

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, even more so, BE with it all (PISCES) in a good vibration, and loving, heart-ful way.

 

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

 

What gets washed up and released, and what these themes are about for YOU can be seen in your chart – esp. where the VIRGO – PISCES axis is (houses, planets…).
CHIRON in PI says: the ‘Medicine’ is IN the theme itself.

The PISCES SUN and planets are squared by MARS (see chart below) which is presently (until mid March 17) cruising in late SAG, the direction of the Galactic Center – the Big Unknown and Unknowable, the ‘Black Hole Transformation’ we are going through, with ultimate trust. That’s where the inner Spiritual Guidance comes in. Let yourself be moved by it. An inner sense of YES!

Moving from the Spiritual Heart that knows and guides us. We will be changed in the process, and can’t know what it ‘looks like on the other side’ (the Ego doesn’t like that).
The path through, or actually with it is the Path of Heart.

This reminds me of A Path With Heart – one of Jack Kornfield’s books of Buddhist teachings for the modern world.
Here is an audio excerpt about self forgiveness.  So healing.
Also very much apropos VIR – PI.
We all hurt or harmed, abandoned, betrayed  others or ourselves, knowingly and unknowingly, out of fear, pain, or confusion.
And we all were hurt and harmed by others.
Asking for and offering forgiveness inwardly. Letting go of what we still carry in the body.
The Heart wants to be free and light and clear and open.
The blessings of a loving-kindness attuned Heart follow.

I invite you to tune in and see how it supports your Beingness.

Triple Moon Goddess (waxing, full, waning): Maiden, Mother, Crone. (Artist unknown)

Were the SUN is presently in the sky during any time of day or night we can picture all those other planets, while the Full MOON will be opposite, holding balance.
We can expose ourselves to the cosmic unified and unifying PISCEAN medicine field, transmitted by the SUN, NEPTUNE, and CHIRON,
and channel the energy into this 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?

MARS in late SAG would add: What’s the Heart mission you’re on? Offering from a generous, expectations- and agenda-free place brings gifts back to ourselves too.


The VIRGO – PISCES Full Moon Chart

The VIR – PI Full Moon will be exact at 4:41 pm PST on March 1, 2018.

 

Look at this magical FULL MOON degree alignment at 11°22′ VIR (MOON) and PI (SUN)! Duality in ONEness. 

  • Soo much in PISCES, in ‘polarity’ with the balancing MOON in VIRGO (which will rise just about an hour after the exact Full Moon, from West Coast perspective).
  • SO much mutability (VIR – SAG – PI)! And very strong in the YIN EARTH / WATER Elements. We live in a Climate of Change!
  • Zero AIR – hmmm, not so easy to maintain a detached, objective perspective? Or: not about the rational mind, rather intuition and heart connection, translated into service and manifestation in integrity (VIR & CAP). 
YinYang Infinite

Essence of timeless Tao Wisdom: Yin-Yang Balance is always dynamically changing and interwoven.


The SUN /  NEPTUNE / MERCURY / VENUS / CHIRON  in PI  show us:

All is unified and ONE.
What makes us vulnerable also carries the Heart Medicine.

Letting go of mental hooks and hang-ups (MERCURY in PI), or 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 more inundating, confusing, and hypnotizing ‘news’. Not a suggestion to put the head into the sand. Rather an opport-Unity to tune into deeper messages.

 

The Full MOON in VIR is in Earth trine with SATURN / LILITH in CAP, and PLUTO nearby – which balances and grounds the energy:

Saturn Pop

Saturn Infrared (Hubble Space Telescope). 

 

  • Awareness and practice matter.
  • Living simply and sustainably (CAP) in wholeness and wellness (VIR).
  • Being in nature, and in our Inner ‘Wild’ Nature (LILITH) helps and sustains – and doesn’t take things on or put up with things (SATURN).

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. The invitation is to experience and merge in the field of Oneness.

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.

I guess you get the picture, and examples are everywhere, incl. the constant influx of media (also ruled by PISCES).

The SUN now in PI brings yearly consciousness to the bigger, longer lasting, and more transpersonal influence of NEPTUNE in PISCES 2012 – 2023, and CHIRON in PISCES 2010 – 2018 (moving over to ARIES Apr 17 – Sept 25, 2018, and then fully from Feb 19, 2019 on). 

  • Have you been feeling overwhelmed by all kinds of influences and energies that are ‘streaming in and through’?
  • Maybe you have a very vivid dream life, maybe you don’t want to face it all?
  • How about this: The way ‘out’ is the way ‘IN’ – to surrender and trust in being carried by What-IS?

So much is coming together now…

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

CHIRON shows us that old, early, time-transcending wounds can come 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.

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 (all these are shadow tendencies of PI), how can we do our part in letting go and healing (NEPTUNE, CHIRON, and MOON in VIR)?

The Full MOON in VIR – PISCES (with NEPTUNE and CHIRON) invites us to invoke Divine Mother / Goddess energy that is always available to support us. 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 putting up boundaries 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 gently allow the energy to leave us.

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

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 (CHIRON in PI) 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.

 

Chiron

Wounded Healer / Centaur CHIRON Finding his Medicine through Surrender…

The ‘Medicine Wo/Man CHIRON’ shows that the ‘wound’ carries the medicine.

CHIRON in PI can be about paradoxical and confusing ‘wounds’:

Feeling awkward and like an outsider because of our urge for deeper connectedness, yet at the same time being overwhelmed and exhausted by too many influences, and not able to release energies we have taken in. Hence escapism, distraction, avoidance.

Nowa-years with CHIRON in PI, when we dive in, and experience our oneness with Life we can relax, and let go of the idea of separation, or even adversarial ‘you over there’, and we’re re-connected with Life again.

Oneness with what-IS allows us also to let things ‘go through us’ as energy, rather than having them stick to us, or sit in our field.
Just as we’ve taken it IN (PI is ‘infamous’ for taking a lot IN) we’re invited to breathe or otherwise release it OUT.
Maybe no need to ‘do anything with it’ (i.e. analyze and work on it…).

Music, Dance, Yoga, Qi Gong, being with or IN Water is natural release therapy.

NEPTUNE & CHIRON in PISCES on the ‘opposite side’ of VIRGO (yet representing the ONE), show it’s all related:
When we drop into Resonance and Love we open up and see: What seems to be on the outside / ‘over there’ in ‘them’ has to do with us too. And – maybe in a place of vulnerability – , we ask for help, drop resistance, let go, and let God.

Many people have become more and more sensitive – perhaps a symptom of overwhelm with influences streaming at us through the media, through the collective atmosphere and cyber sphere. I’ve been hearing that from many clients, and experience it myself.

Therefore, let’s

  • Be in body-mind-spirit alignment, good health, well-being and conscious practice.
  • Be mindful, aware and self-aware.
  • Take care of business, organize, clear and clean.
  • Help ourselves (VIR is a big fan of DiY, and there is so much info online now too, re: How to…).
  • Help others – because we can. ‘Simple’, ‘small’, anonymous acts of service – can be a big deal for them, and so internally rewarding.

VIRGO thrives on alignment and self-containment, discernment, loves wellness practices, recipes, remedies, and rituals. And it’s important to heal low vibrational VIRGO (“never good enough, always problems”) with higher VIRGO vibes.

  • What is your Body Temple showing you?
  • What can you do (with joy and awareness) to help and serve others, and make the world a better place? Maybe in the service lays your own healing?
  • What needs physical cleaning / clearing / organizing in your life (how about starting with a small realm, like: the desk?). The present VIR – PI dynamic, in combination with JUPITER in SCO helps with purging, clearing clutter and reorganizing things so that life energy can flow more smoothly (and you know where things are…).
  • What’s the change you’re grateful for (JUPITER in SCO)? Even (and maybe esp.) those ‘small’ things (VIR).

 

Voyager II Priestess Crystals 1

VIRGO is the energy of the Harvest Goddess,  Priestess, and Sacred Feminine who is clear and aligned with her sacred Self which she keeps 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.

  • 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?

What a creative combo of both PI and VIR could look like:

  • Ride the waves, be in your element.
  • Your skills are what comes easy.
  • Holding space for others can be the best service you can offer.
  • Clean up with music.
  • Energy Medicine. AstroSomatics.
  • Sacred Geometry.
  • Astrology and its practical, embodied benefits.
  • Being in the world, yet not of the world. Doing what needs to be done, yet not in attachment.
  • God helps those who help themselves. Doing our share, and trusting divine intervention.
  • Random acts of service bring fulfillment.

 

Voyager VIII Balance

Voyager Tarot Card VIII Balance

(Why am I so drawn to bring in Voyager Tarot cards today? Maybe to show you their natural alignment with Astrology)

BALANCE is the way to go, or rather to BE, in the Full Moon dynamic.

The ‘whirlwind’ of stimuli and issues can kick us off balance. How can we infuse a situation where ‘problems’ show up / where we’re not aligned (VIR) with flow, allowance, acceptance, and love, which might mean release and let go(d) (PI)?

Intentionality is important too, and MARS in late SAG in T-square to the Full Moon axis, supports clear Heart Intentions.

 

Clearly, the answer is in the Heart.
May the Heart lead the way, in the Journey!

VIRGO – Super-PISCES (pseudo-ecliptic) Full Moon, Pointing to SATURN in SAG ~*~ Heart Medicine, Oneness Consciousness, and Living in Wholeness

11 Mar

Endings and Release-in-the-ONE galore:
We’re approaching

  • the last Full Moon in Winter
  • the last Full Moon in the Zodiac cycle this year, and also
  • the last Full Moon close to the Lunar (karmic, ecliptic) Nodes in PI – VIR!
    As I’ll lay out below, it’s basically a ‘Pseudo Eclipse’. Lots of endings and release-in-love, making room for new re-alignment.


Let’s backtrack to the recent major Solunar event:

How has the journey with the massive, oceanic ‘Ring of Fire’ / Shivaratri Solar Eclipse in PISCES been for you???
Have you been able to ‘jump’ through the ‘ring’ of karma (Eclipses have karmic themes) of unevolved PISCEAN entanglements and co-dependency patterns? We’re talking about victim – perpetrator / persecutor – saviour / martyr ‘triangle’, and various addictions).

So much has been washed UP, from the Sea of the Collective Unconscious that connects us all, like an invisible fabric. Historic trauma, themes that are fishy and slippery and hard to ‘grasp’ with the mind, and they transcend space-time dimensions…

 

Japanese Master Katsushika Hokusai Great Wave of Kanagawa

Japanese Master Katsushika Hokusai: Great Wave of Kanagawa

 

We’re still in the Eclipse wave of course, since Eclipse effects extend over 1 – 2 months (depending on intensity, and one’s own activation). There is still a lot of planetary energy in PISCES – showing up again for the Full Moon tomorrow, and gradually moving over to ARIES – Spring in Becoming!

The Full Moon in late (= double) VIRGO tomorrow March 12 (see chart below) receives the reflection of the SUN in late (= double) PISCES, next to CHIRON and MERCURY, plus NEPTUNE and the South Node in early PISCES – what a cosmic tidal wave!
Vulnerability through overwhelm and feeling lost….?

  • What’s the medicine that CHIRON offers?
  • What’s the practice that VIRGO prescribes?

Since the Full Moon is so close to the Lunar Nodes in the same PI – VIR polarity (PI / South Node – VIR / North Node) I call it energetically a ‘Pseudo Eclipse’. Also, since PISCES energy extends and ‘spills’ it makes sense to treat this Full Moon like an Eclipse.

There’s a reverberation of the vibrations that were present a year ago – with and around the Total Solar Eclipse in PISCES, close to CHIRON – on March 8, 2016…
A lot has shifted and moved since, in the collective oceans… yet there are vibrations that still and again show up.

DSC03761

Piscean CloudFish Photo by Melanie, March 2017

So let’s be aware (VIR) and in a loving, open, neutral place (PI), with the washing up and out of old vibrations – maybe even residues of the whole PISCES Age era, and our connection with it / conditioning by it?

HOW to (a VIRGO approach) release all THAT? That can be overwhelming!!!

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, even more so, BE with it all (PISCES) in a good vibration, and loving, heart-ful way.

What gets washed up and released, and what these themes are about for YOU can be seen in your chart – esp. where the VIRGO – PISCES axis is (houses, planets…).
CHIRON in PI says: the ‘Medicine’ is IN the theme itself.

The Full Moon squares SATURN (see chart below) which is presently (until mid May) cruising in late SAG, the direction of the Galactic Center – the Big Unknown and Unknowable, the ‘Black Hole Transformation’ we are going through, with ultimate trust. That’s where the inner Spiritual Guidance comes in, and is being tested.
We are initiated (SATURN) into moving from the Spiritual Heart that knows and guides us. We will be changed in the process, and can’t know what it ‘looks like on the other side’ (the Ego doesn’t like that).
The Full Moon in VIR – PI in almost exact T-Square with SATURN in late SAG – an effect over the coming week, emphasizes:
The path through, or actually with, it is the Path of Heart.

We can expose ourselves to the cosmic unified and unifying PISCEAN medicine field, transmitted by the SUN and CHIRON,
and channel the energy into this 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?

SATURN in SAG would add: What’s the Heart mission you’re on? Offering from a generous, expectations- and agenda-free place brings the gifts back to ourselves too.

 


What does the chart of the VIRGO – PISCES Full Moon chart look like and tell us, you may ask?

The VIR – PI Full Moon will be exact at 7:54 am PDT (yes, Daylight Savings Time shifts tonight!) tomorrow, March 12, 2017.

Voila, here is the chart:

VIR - PI FM 2017

 

  • Soo much in PISCES, in polarity with the North Node and MOON in VIRGO (which will have just set, at the exact New Moon time, from West Coast perspective).
    Both sides funneling into SATURN in SAG via T-square!
  • SO much mutability (VIR – SAG – PI)!
  • And MARS, barely in TAURUS, as the only Planet in fixed signs. All in flux…
  • The Cardinal T-square with URANUS in ARIES and JUPITER retro in LIBRA, both squaring PLUTO in CAP, is also quite potent, and active until late March, pushing us to step forward into the unknown, be innovative, authentic and spontaneous, make wise choices for synergistic relationships, and build in integrity and sustainability.
  • For all that cardinal energy to kick in (MUCH more so with the ARIES New Moon on March 27) the mutable energy that the Full Moon brings needs to wash out the old.
     
YinYang Infinite

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


The SUN /  CHIRON / MERCURY / Lunar South Node / NEPTUNE in PI  show us:

All is unified and ONE.
What makes us vulnerable also carries the Heart Medicine.

Letting go of mental hooks and hang-ups (MERCURY in PI), or 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 more inundating hypnotizing ‘news’).

 


The Full MOON in VIR is in Earth trine with PLUTO in CAP – which balances and grounds the energy:

  • Awareness and practice matter.
  • Living simply and sustainably (CAP) in wholeness and wellness (VIR).

The North Node also in VIR is in Earth trine with MARS, freshly in TAURUS since March 9, (see my recent in-depth blog post about this cosmic move):

  • Being in nature, and in our deep (PLUTO) nature helps and sustains.

SATURN
(now slowing down into its stationary gear-shift mode to retro – from Apr 6 on) in late SAG – the Galactic Centre / Centaur, between the Full MOON in late VIR and the SUN / CHIRON / MERCURY in late PI receives pressure from both sides, and is itself a T-square ‘outlet’ for the tension, bringing up the big, deep quest(ions):

  • Where is the path in all this? What guides us and makes sense?
  • What prevents us from, and what supports us in aiming from the Heart?

 

Would you like to look closer at these present Full Moon energies?

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. The invitation is to experience and merge in the field of Oneness.

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.

I guess you get the picture, and examples are everywhere, incl. the constant influx of media (also ruled by PISCES).

The SUN now in PI brings yearly consciousness to the bigger, longer lasting, and more transpersonal influence of CHIRON (2010 – 2018 in PISCES):
Whoa, so much happening at once – all together now…!

  • Have you been feeling overwhelmed by all kinds of influences and energies that are ‘streaming in and through’?
  • Maybe you have a very vivid dream life, maybe you don’t want to face it all?
  • How about this: The way ‘out’ is the way ‘IN’ – to surrender and trust in being carried by What-IS?

So much is coming together now…

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

CHIRON shows us that old, early, time-transcending wounds can come 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.

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 (all these are shadow tendencies of South Node in PI), how can we do our part in the healing (CHIRON, and North Node in VIR)?

The Full MOON in VIR – PISCES (with CHIRON), in square with SATURN in SAG may invite us to invoke Divine Mother / Goddess energy that is always available to support us. 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 putting up boundaries 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 gently allow the energy to leave us.

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

The Lunar South Node in PI’s need for 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 (CHIRON in PI) 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.

CHIRON in PI can be about paradoxical and confusing ‘wounds’:

  • Feeling awkward and like an outsider because of our urge for deeper connectedness, yet at the same time
  • Being overwhelmed and exhausted by too many influences, and not able to release energies we have taken in. Hence escapism, distraction, avoidance.

Nowa-years with CHIRON in PI, when we dive in, and experience our oneness with life we can relax, and let go of the idea of separation, or even adversarial ‘you over there’, and are re-connected with life again.

This oneness with what-IS allows us also to let things ‘go through us’ as energy, rather than having them stick to us, or sit in our field.
Just as we have taken it IN (PI is ‘infamous’ for taking a lot IN) we are invited to breathe or otherwise release it OUT. Maybe no need to ‘do anything with it’ (i.e. analyze and work on it…).

Music, Dance, Yoga, Qi Gong, being with or IN water is natural therapy for this kind of release.

CHIRON in PISCES on the ‘opposite side’ of VIRGO (yet representing the ONE), shows that it’s all related. When we drop into Resonance and Love we open up and see:
What we see on the outside / ‘over there’ in ‘them’ has to do with us too. And – maybe in a place of vulnerability – , we ask for help, drop resistance, let go, and let God.

Many people become more and more sensitive – perhaps a symptom of overwhelm with influences streaming at us through the media, through the atmosphere and cyber sphere. I’ve been hearing that from many clients, and experience it myself.

As another ‘energetic hygiene’ and clearing of what we have taken IN, I recommend a simple and very effective Visualization Practice that I adopted from my friend and Satsang teacher Susan Broznitsky, and alternatively, or additionally a Forgiveness Writing Practice.

Therefore, let’s

  • Be in body-mind-spirit alignment, good health, well-being and conscious practice,
  • Be mindful, aware and self-aware,
  • Take care of business, organize, clear and clean,
  • Help ourselves (VIR is a big fan of DiY, and there is so much info online now too, re: How to…)
  • Help others – because you can. ‘Simple’, ‘small’ acts of service – can be a big deal for them, and so rewarding.

VIRGO thrives on alignment and self-containment, discernment, loves wellness practices, recipes, remedies, and rituals. And it’s important to heal low vibrational VIRGO (“never good enough, always problems”) with higher VIRGO vibes.

  • What is your Body Temple showing you?
  • What can you do (with joy and awareness) to help and serve others, and make the world a better place? Maybe in the service lays your own healing?
  • What needs physical cleaning / clearing / organizing in your life (how about starting with a small realm, like: the desk?). The present VIR – PI dynamic helps with clearing clutter and reorganizing things so that life energy can flow more smoothly (and you know where things are…).
  • How about rituals like media / cell phone free walks? We don’t need to be constantly exposed to media and available (PI).
  • What are you grateful for (SATURN in SAG)? Even (and maybe esp.) those ‘small’ things (VIR).

VIRGO is the energy of the harvest goddess and priestess who is clear and aligned with her sacred Self which she keeps in integrity.

VIRGO practices self-awareness (the energy of the LEO-to-VIR Sphinx Point where the North Node sits this Spring), and tends to ‘her’ body-mind-spirit temple through clearing, discernment, sacred 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.

  • 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, or help invite beneficial cosmic energies?

What a creative combo of both PI and VIR could look like:

  • Ride the waves, immerse in your element.
  • Your skills are what comes easy.
  • Holding space for others can be the best service you can offer.
  • Clean up and play music.
  • Energy Medicine. AstroSomatics.
  • Sacred Geometry.
  • Astrology and its practical, embodied benefits.
  • Being in the world, yet not of the world. Doing what needs to be done, yet not in attachment.
  • God helps those who help themselves. Doing our share, and trusting divine intervention.
  • Random acts of service bring fulfillment.
Voyager VIII Balance

Voyager Tarot Card VIII Balance


(Why am I so drawn to bring in Voyager Tarot cards today? Maybe to show you their natural alignment with Astrology)

BALANCE is the way to go, or rather to BE (says also JUPITER in LIBRA – presently retro, so it’s really an ‘inner game’)

In the ‘whirlwind’ of things that can kick us off balance – an unhealthy thing, of course – how can we infuse a situation where ‘problems’ show up or we / things are not aligned (VIR) with flow, allowance, acceptance, and love, which might mean release and let go(d) (PI)?

 

 

Intentionality is important too, and SATURN stationary in late SAG (going retro on Apr 6) in T-square to the Nodal / Ecliptic axis, supports clear Heart Intentions.

SATURN is the Planetary Archetype of Mastery, Maturity, Lessons, Karma. It also rules the Root Chakra and anchors us in what-IS.

SATURN has been in SAG since Sept 17, 2015 (with an episode until 5° SAG from Dec 2014 until mid-June 2015), and will leave SAG / enter CAP two days before the Winter Solstice 2017.
Clearly, humanity has been dealing with socio-political and global issues that don’t just ‘go away’. We can’t pretend to be blind to them anymore (SAG literally rules eye sight, and perspective in a broader sense), and need to deal with them. I don’t want to expand on it here – we all are well aware.

Saturn & Earth

On a personal level, what are the challenges SATURN in SAG asks us to deal and be done with?

Classical obstacles ‘on the SAG path’ are judgment, dogmatism, “my way or the highway”, lack of trust, a cynical humour at others’ expense, no real perspective on things, being blind sighted and biased, missing the obvious…

What can help us move forward ‘in the right direction’, without making anyone ‘wrong’ which perpetuates karma and separation?

Clearly, the answer is in the Heart.

SATURN in SAG is also the storyteller, inspiring yet grounded teacher, and visionary elder.
Let’s invoke those qualities IN us, as SATURN will soon go retro, on April 6!

May the Heart lead the way, in this Journey!
