VIRGO – Super PISCES Full Moon with NEPTUNE: Self-Aligning & Connectedness in the Flow of Life

7 Mar

Dear Cosmic Friend on Planet Earth,

Feeling the energy building?
Seen Her in Her waxing belly, these afternoons / evenings?
The VIRGO – PISCES Full Moon is coming, on MoOnday, March 9!

 

A friend of mine took this amazing photo of the strawberry colour Full Moon in Germany – some Moons ago 🙂


And She’s special in so many ways:

  • She’s the first SuperMOON of 3 in 2020.
  • She comes on the heels of the SUN / NEPTUNE conjunction in PISCES (once a year, on March 8).
  • And also on the heels of the VENUS / URANUS conjunction in TAURUS (once a year, on March 8).
  • MERCURY will go out of retro on the DAY of the Full Moon, March 9 – opening up another almost 7-week retro free time March 8 – Apr 25 when PLUTO goes retro.
  • She ushers in the next (one of two this year) Friday the 13th of March – Day of the Sacred Feminine!
  • She’s the last Full Moon in WINTER 2019 / 20 (after the CAN – CAP Partial Lunar Eclipse on Jan 10, and the LEO – AQ Full Moon on Feb 8 / 9) – the next Full Moon will be the first Spring FM, on April 7 in LIBRA – ARIES!

 

As with every Full Moon, and esp. with this NEPTUNE enhanced one, it can be a very emotionally / psychically ‘pregnant’ phase, as things come to a peak and culmination, esp. on the VIRGO side of  anxiety, worries and concern – well, of course mainly related to the potential of picking up (PI) the apparently pervasive corona virus.

If you’re interested in an astrological perspective on the Virus, China, and the Eclipses, check out my freshly released ASTRO~News blog.


Good news:

Things come not only to a culmination but also to fruition (think: Full Moon – Harvest Moon, and VIRGO), to be released (a la PISCES via the SUN, now close to NEPTUNE, plus MERCURY at the very end of its retro phase , and in turnaround ‘storm’ until March 19).
Esp. after a SuperMOON.

Let’s allow Life to BE (PISCES), and keep doing the Practice (VIR) that keeps us healthy, well & whole, and connected, from which right action ‘in the world’ emerges naturally.

What’s that for you?
Yoga, good nutrition, music, walks in Nature (and definitely be the Ocean) are ‘simple’ and good ones in my life.
Balance (do I hear Full Moon?!) of the spiritual / psychic / energetic with the grounded, embodied Self.

The immense wave of SUN / NEPTUNE in central PISCES (with SCO undertone) – their yearly alignment will be exact tomorrow March 8 – feeding into the Full Moon on March 9 leads over into ARIES via CHIRON & LILITH:
Transformation in the making, for Spring and New Life in Becoming!

What a cosmic tidal wave this can be, esp. mentally-emotionally-psychically!
One thing leads to another, and all is interconnected.
Domino and snow ball to avalanche effects…
Intensity and vulnerability through overwhelm and feeling confused….

With MERCURY in ‘exile’ in PI (ruling its opposite, organized VIR) and presently in retro (Feb 16 – March 9) turnaround ‘storm’, we could easily get mentally-emotionally overwhelmed and confused, since… all is connected, and we don’t have all the information required to think straight. Well, the dots are being slowly connected…
‘Gone fishing’ / time out – literally by the water, meditating, or taking extra naps has been and still is a good way of allowing things to run their course, be washed out of our system, and fall into place in a new way.

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

 

If you’ve 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 (PI) everyone’s woes and complications, or critique / try to improve (VIR) their behaviour that we can’t change, and a healthy membrane is a good thing, like a well-functioning immune system. Yay, esp. NOW.
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:
We’re spiritual Beings having a human experience. Something to take in and attune to, even more so with MERCURY already and for a long time in in PI (even after the retro phase, it’ll still go fully through PI, March 16 – Apr 10).

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 – esp. as we’re facing the virus.
But it’s worth checking in with awareness (VIR) whether a situation that upset us is actually ‘small stuff’ in the bigger context of things. And yet, why do we feel it in such a BIG way? What’s the emotion / need / even childhood theme (MOON) behind it? Let’s be kind to ourselves and one another, and practice forgiveness / release.

A spiritual teacher said: “Do you experience the suffering (as a phenomenon that comes and goes), 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 – Super PISCES Full Moon with NEPTUNE 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…

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), 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? Do you need a ‘shield’? Or an energetic release practice? Got a tip for you below.
  • And what of that IS actually a reflection of you?
    VIRGO’s awareness & 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 ‘correct them’? 
  • 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 and in alignment with ourselves (VIR).
I.o.w., when I take care of myself, knowing who I am and what works for me / how I work best it can’t be ‘wrong’ for others. Maybe just a matter of conveying it compassionately.
Whole-istic Astrology is about Realizing and Living your True YOU.
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 to accommodate, 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 & LILITH now in early ARIES agree 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 – Super PISCES 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 ‘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.
And yes, wash (PI) our hands (ruled by VIR) as needed….

Maybe even residues of the whole PISCES Age era, and our collective (PI) and personal (VIR) connection with / in it and conditioning by it, is showing up now…
via MERCURY for a looong time in PISCES, incl. retro (Feb 16 – March 9) mostly in PI, and again in PI March 16 – Apr 10! And via the (yearly) meeting of the SUN with NEPTUNE that’s been building up – exact tomorrow March 8.

Conditioned shadow expressions as the Victim – Perpetrator – Saviour – Martyr dynamic can easily play out now.
Our ‘job’ with VIRGO is to catch those with our Self Awareness.
Like, asking ourselves when energy is draining or we feel overwhelmed (PI low vibrations): Which role/s in the triad am I playing here?

Then you may ask: 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 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 to surf.”
Jon Kabat-Zinn

 

Which of these themes are getting washed up – to be released?
They can be also seen in your chart – esp. where the VIRGO – PISCES axis is
(House/s, Planets…).
We can expose ourselves to the cosmic, universal,  unified and unifying PISCEAN Field, transmitted by the SUN & NEPTUNE.

 

Triple Goddess Maiden, Mother, Crone, with Waxing, Full, and Waning Moon, representing the stages of Womanhood

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?

 

Ahh – the Full MOON on March 9 also leads over to Friday the 13th of March (one of the two Fridays the 13th this year – next one in Nov) –
Day of the Sacred Feminine (article to follow), since it relates to VENUS (Friday is VENUS-Day) and the MOON with her 13 lunar cycles every year.

 

The VIRGO – PISCES Full Moon Chart

The 19º37′ VIR – PI Full Moon will be exact at 10:48 am PDT on MoOnday March 9.

Immediately obvious:

We’re in a VERY PISCEAN realm – balanced by the VIRGO MOON.

Mid-PISCES (which has a SCO undertone) SUN, together with its Ruler NEPTUNE.

MERCURY the ‘Messenger’ which rules VIRGO is for a very long time in the PISCEAN oceanic realm this year:
Since Feb 16, until Apr 10, and has been going retro (March 5 – 28) mostly in PI too!
MERCURY in PI esp. during the retro phase has brought a lot of confusion and overwhelm into the collective mental field, yet is also attuning us to openness, connectedness, and fluidity of the Mind

The SUN & NEPTUNE can be experienced as a vital-energetic drain. And is also an invitation to consciously BE in the vaster Energy Field and tune into Oneness of / as All-That-Is…

 

The essence of timeless Tao: Yin-Yang Balance – always dynamic and interwoven

The SUN /  NEPTUNE / MERCURY ‘field’ in PI show us: All is unified and ONE.

Letting go of mental escapist addictions, 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 well to those vibrational ‘messages’, rather than being more inundated, confused, and hypnotized by ‘news’ in the overwhelm of media (also ruled by PI).
Which is not a suggestion to put the head into the sand.
Rather an opport-Unity to let go, and tune into deeper messages.

 

Big Wave Surfer Maya Gabeira

 

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) – where we never get enough, and still don’t know…
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 (temporary) state of bliss and union’, etc.
The invitation is to experience, immerse, and merge in the field of Oneness, knowing it doesn’t go away, and is omnipresent.

The SUN now in PISCES is bringing Solar Consciousness to the bigger, longer, and more transpersonal influences of NEPTUNE in PISCES 2012 – 2026, and perhaps in retrospect also to CHIRON in PISCES 2010 – 2019.

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 in 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. 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.

And what’s with MERCURY, now back to the beginning of PI (will re-enter on March 16)?

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

Offering Kuan Yin Blessings for China and for all Sentient Beings!

 

On this note: Is MERCURY retro over on March 9?

Technically yes, when it stops its retro motion, and is going slooooowly forward again. Which means: Next week, MERCURY is in turnaround station, aka storm, like a gear shift, until it catches some momentum from March 19  on – YES, at Spring Equinox – and will be out of post-retro ‘storm’ by then, but still in post-retro ‘shadow’ until March 30. Yes, Feb & March have been major M-r months.

The next 1 1/2 weeks are still ‘HOT’ post-retro wise, and it would be good to be very clear with agreements and communication, yet also an excellent time to also slow down, and RE-ceive messages that help with integrating the retro phase themes.

Once MERCURY is (fully) out of retro we’ll have another retro-free acceleration phase – until PLUTO goes retro, on April 25. We’ll experience quite the shift with the next New Moon in fierce & swift ARIES, on March 24.

 

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 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?

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, indulging in them, or escaping into addictive behaviour, how can we do our part in letting go and healing?

 

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, or Mother Mary, or many other Mother Goddesses.

We can’t ‘do it all’ but we can ask for assistance from Higher dimensions
See how your energy shifts…! And hey, it’s been said that Angelic helpers have to be asked – they don’t interfere.

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.

And when it comes to the corona virus, of course good to strengthen the immune system, rather than going into pandemic panic (very PI). Fear and survival mode are contagious, lower the immune system, and we re-act from reptilian brain place, and separate / isolate us.
How can we make sure to stay connected with one another, and, rather than cultivating worry vibes send healing blessings to all affected?

 

Crystal (mainly clear Quartz) activated Voyager Tarot card II – Priestess – Crystal activation and Photo by Melanie

 

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 well and 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 / pick up again right now that would benefit your well being?
    Something simple and self-sufficient, like:
    Cell phone free walks, Yoga, healthy exercise, getting more regularly fresh air, 5 min meditation before meeting someone, or before going to bed, blessing the food you eat?
  • Which ‘recipes, remedies, and rituals’ would your inner Mentor prescribe?
    Like:Adding / removing something from your diet, adjusting you sleep hours, or your work style, introducing 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?
    The phase after the VIR – PI Full Moon, before the first Spring New Moon (March 23) is perfect for Spring cleaning & clearing for the home and for a body cleanse.
  • 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 (not about ‘overcoming problems’).
  • Holding space for others can be the best service you can offer.
  • What is Service of & to the Soul?
  • 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.
  • Energetic hygiene.

 

On the note of the latter (energetic hygiene), here’s a very helpful practice I learned years ago from meditation & Qi Gong teacher Susan Broznitsky:

Releasing Stuck / Toxic Energy – Visualization Practice

…and yes, as we are doing the practice, we extend it into the field of Planet Earth…

We all carry energy around that we picked up somewhere, and that’s sitting in us. What we can’t release can become toxic (low PI-SCO vibration). It can be quite frustrating to feel or sense those things that are not directly ours (yet in a bigger sense they are ours too…).
We might have picked things up from other people or from the collective field, through resonance and empathy, and / or by being in a low and receptive vibration (like feeling angry, and docking on to the anger around us). As empaths, and when we have a lot of PISCES in us we tend to take a lot IN, and need to make sure we release it too.

Close your eyes, and sit (or stand) upright.
Visualize your energy body that’s you and surrounds you as a beautiful temple, or cathedral, or garden, or any sacred space that speaks to you. Create or remember that sacred space vividly, in front of your inner eye.
Now locate where in your body, esp. in which Chakra area you have taken something in that’s still ‘sitting there’ and might feel like a blockage.
Realize and acknowledge that you must have opened up doors of your sacred space to let ‘it’ in, probably in front of your body when you were facing ‘it’.
Now you’re invited to go to the back of your body in that same area, and open the doors or windows there (maybe they have never been opened? Or you weren’t aware that you can do this even?)!
Now allow the stuck energy to leave your space, blessed and transformed – since it is a sacred space. With ease and accompanied by the light. Hold space for this process. You may experience a light ray coming in from the back where you open the door / window, helping the energy to leave on this light ray.

Your experience is unique, and might have a message for you too.
How do you feel now?

You can do this practice when you notice having taken something in that kicks you off balance, and also in hindsight, even after years of ‘cultivating’ something in you.
I’m not saying, do it all the time, to avoid any discomfort… but as a tool to work with, so that the energy can flow.

This is a great tool (well, I like it, and the clients whom I have shown it to) that is easy, can be done anywhere, without even anyone noticing. 🙂

 

Other Energies in the VIR – SuperPI Full MOON ‘Field’

Call of the Mountain – Photo by Melanie

 

Mountain Medicine

Yes, still a lot of CAPRICORN energy too, activated by MARS these weeks (Feb 16 – March 30).
Which makes Earth the strongest element these days / weeks.

And the Full Moon in VIRGO goes into Earth Trine with them all (MARS, JUPITER, PLUTO, SATURN), on March 9.
A call for integrity, simplicity, humility, and an opportunity to work with what we’re best at and what’s in alignment.
The spiritual practice is a mountain path – don’t carry extra ‘baggage’ with you, and stay on track and in the practice.

MARS in CAP is a solid energy that holds everyone (esp. oneself and those in leadership) accountable, AND helps us to be mature & responsible, step up to the occasion with our cap-acities, and get the job done.
Accomplishment and completion are CAP’s big motivators.
CAP keeps it real, and doesn’t like waste of Time and Energy
(well, super relevant now with the virus).

The ‘grand finale’ of MARS contacts is only coming up – between the upcoming Full Moon and the next New Moon in ARIES (by then, MARS will be already in AQ).

MARCH 14
MARS in mid CAP sextiling NEPTUNE in mid PI.
Great time for work flow. And to be in connectedness which naturally leads us to what matters most.
There’s always primo energy for it available.

MARCH 20
MARS in late CAP meets JUPITER.
Looots of energy – for what brings out our Best and what we’re built for
(yet it might have been hard to tackle thus far).
Let’s use that energy – round Spring Equinox!
Also great for Spring cleaning, of course.

MARCH 22
MARS in late CAP meets & passes PLUTO.
Whoooaa – Power House / Super Hero energy.
Likely the highlight of the MARS in CAP Transit – and it can express on different levels:
Transforming anger into productive work.
Moving Mountains? What needs to change to accomplish this…?
Societal structures change when shadow comes out.
Deep inner work that transforms generational / historic / ancestral conditioning.
Doing the Soul Work.

 

Awakening (through) the Body, and EmBodying Freedom & Awakeness

Another earthy activation comes via URANUS being met by VENUS who recently ‘settled’ in TAU (March 4 – Apr 3).

Tomorrow, MARCH 8 – on the eve of the VIR – PI Big Wave Full Moon, VENUS newly in TAU meets URANUS.
EnJoy freely and without attachment – follow the body. Be surprised at what (or whom?) you fall in love with. Freedom from, for, and without any attribute and ‘opposite’ / other.

 

Lastly, LILITH & CHIRON, united in early ARIES are now (early to mid March) forming a sharp T-square with the Nodal Axis (North Node early CANCER, South Node early CAP). 
The on-going dilemma between doing what’s timely & required – yet not the hard / old / conditioned way – and being gentle and caring finds its resolution through being authentic and present with what shows up here-now. Apparently a challenge to be brave, yet just let emerge what’s in you. Be YOU, not their projection.
The next New Moon in early ARIES on March 24 will ‘come with’ CHIRON & LILITH.

Lots of shifts into newness-nowness!
A whole different scenario than in this outflowing, transitional, preparatory phase.

Ouroboros_Brush

Spontaneous AND perfect Zen brush painting of an Ouroboros, the mysterious alchemical winged serpent that bites its own tail. Very PISCES – VIRGO – if anything!

 

In essence:
The VIRGO – PISCES FULL MOON & Entourage calls us to be in Sacred Alignment, AND in Oneness with What-IS.


Cosmic Blessings for Wellness & Wholeness in Oneness, with the VIRGO – SuperPISCES Full MOON – and beyond!

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 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!    

Feeling called to explore your own Cosmic Map, and how it can guide you on your Earthly Journey?

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!

 

NEPTUNE is a V.I.P.

Poseidon / Neptune, in the Harbour of Havana, where the Malecon starts…. Photo by Melanie, from a Neptunian Journey in Cuba in 2012

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!

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.

NEPTUNE in PISCES stationary in June – goes retro June 18 (until Nov 24) – Connectivity without Co-Dependency

17 Jun

June is quite the oceanic month, 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 as it goes in its 5-months retro journey, starting tomorrow, June 18.
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 in the cycle of the alchemical GEMINI New Moon (June 13), 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 (MARS on June 26, CHIRON on July 4, MERCURY on July 25, URANUS on Aug 7), joining a Record ‘team’ of total 6 (July) / 7 (Aug) Retrograde ‘Players’!

Join our Retro Record Astro Parlour on July 16 to co-explore and co-attune with their energies in our lives!

 

NEPTUNE is a V.I.P.

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.= a Very Important Planet this month, since it’s on a turnaround course (twice a year) from Earth perspective, exact tomorrow, June 18, hence moving very slowly all of June, and becoming an energetic focal point.
NEPTUNE will be retro until Nov 24 (a yearly rhythm of 5 months retro / 7 months direct).

NEPTUNE has been also involved in the GEM New Moon on June 13 (which widely squared NEPTUNE in PI), and is presently activated by a Grand Water Trine from MERCURY in CANCER (exact on June 20) and from JUPITER retro in SCO (which is on May – Aug, exact: May 25 and Aug 19).

The Grand 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.

VIRGO New Moon with ‘Nervous Rectangle’, Mutable T-Square Calls for Flexibility in Integrity – and for Setting Butterfly Effects in Motion…

20 Sep

How have you been, in the cosmic and terrestrial storms, over the last weeks???

My heart goes out to every human, animal, and nature being affected by the Caribbean storms, and by the quakes in Mexico!

The intensity and amount of disasters around and since the PISCES – VIRGO Full Moon, and now again, round this VIR New Moon that’s LIKE a Full Moon since it’s got such a strong PI / VIR axis has shaken us up for sure!
YES, the rattler and shaker URANUS in late ARIES on the ‘Settling Point’ (well yeah, very UN-setting effects) has been stationary in August, leading into stationary PLUTO in Sept which shows us the powers of Nature…


The destructive, and the timelessly generative…

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

Both transpersonal, collective Archetypes URANUS and PLUTO mirror what’s going on on Planet Earth, when it comes to the deep inevitable (PLUTO) and accelerating (URANUS) change of what we considered as solid and ‘given’ (CAP):
Earth structures, ‘regular’ seasons and weather,  and societal structures in governments, hierarchies, and work.
The CAPricornian patriarchal structures are dying (while trying to assert their powers in the process)… while the new (ARIES) is breaking through (URANUS).

Remember: Change can be for the better, i.o.w., fear not!
Only our attachment to the old makes us fearful. I know, easier said than done. We are very unconsciously, historically, genetically conditioned…
URANUS represents the unexpected (which seems almost the norm nowadays) that shakes and WAKES us up, to be radically in the NOW, and perhaps wake up of a dream consciousness altogether…

URANUS rules AQ – group consciousness beyond hierarchies and structures, and cooperation to build for the future. We, humanity, are all in this together. Nobody is an island indeed…

Yes, things are ‘out of natural order’ in the weather, in the climate, producing a cascade of record breaking hurricanes, fires, and earth quakes. All the elements Fire, Earth, Air, and Water represented, sadly. And Nature has a way of uncharging and re-balancing itself.

The last Full Moon on Sept 6, with the MOON and NEPTUNE closely together in PISCES, and the SUN in VIRGO amplified the PISCEAN atmospheric and literally oceanic impact of ‘chaos’ vs. the need to connect the dots, analyze the situation, and do something about it (VIRGO), IF it’s fixable, that-is…

This NEW MOON yesterday Sept 19 / today Sept 20 (depending on your time zone) activated the VIR – PI axis even more so, with the VIRGO union of SUN and MOON opposing CHIRON in PISCES. And MARS / MERCURY in VIR opposing NEPTUNE in PI.


We’re all affected, and the media (a Piscean phenomenon) allow us to tune in – not for the faint of heart, and lots of us might have felt vicariously traumatized, or re-wounded in relation to something traumatic that might have happened to us before.

No wonder, PISCEAN overwhelm and helplessness has overcome many of us.

What’s your way of responding – rather than reacting?
Giving up?
Escaping / hiding out / numbing by going into addictive substances or behavious?
Or leaning in, feeling with those affected, sending love and prayers?
All these can be PISCEAN ways of being in the Oneness that shows up so strongly now.

Rather than giving up, in hopelessness and overwhelm, or escaping into addictions that takes us out, so that we don’t fully and deeply feel what’s going on, let’s BE with PISCES differently.
A good way of applying the VIR – PI energy would be also through spiritual (PI) practice (VIR), ritual, ceremony, and connecting (PI) with Nature, esp the Ocean (PI).
And to remember:

LOVE is Super-Power!

 

Monarch Butterfly Colony

Last weekend, I went to the provocative multi-media performance Nomadic Tempest, by The Caravan Stage Company on their Tall Theatre Ship Amara Zee which is presently anchored in the Victoria harbour for a week.
Nomadic Tempest is a mythical saga of monarch migrants (embodied by aerial artists) searching for refuge on a drowned planet, in the year 2040.
The first part, an apocalyptic immersion, was really hard to take in, esp. since it was SO apropos a series of intense storms that happened just weeks and days before. When reality catches up with theatre, and dimensions blend (very PISCEAN).

Monarch Butterfly Swarm

The Butterfly Effect can be a chance to ‘heal like with like’ a la CHIRON in PISCES which the NEW MOON in VIRGO opposes:

Just as destructive domino effects ‘happen’ apparently unrelated yet connected, so too can little actions performed by many people in coherence (esp. when reaching a critical mass) have an impactful positive effect. Monarch Butterflies are super strong because they operate as a team, and they genetically evolve fast and flexibly.

Humanity and Life on Earth have a chance in this global crisis if we cooperate, and evolve fast too, out of outdated consciousness that goes into victim mode, or remains powerless and separate:
Divided we fall. United we stand.
Divided we can be controlled. United we self-govern.
Divided we give power away. United we can have a positive impact.

 

“How can I be connected with the Quantum Field?” you may ask….
You ARE IN the Quantum Field. That’s like a Dolphin asking, ‘How can I be connected with the ocean?”

The Spirit of the Dolphin has shown up a lot for me, over the last week.

Wanna join me in taking its medicine of joyful intelligent cooperation, i.o.w. raising the vibration, while riding the waves of life…?!

 

Voila, here’s the chart of the VIR NEW MOON, with ‘her entourage’ of Planetary Archetypes:

Lots of mutable / flexible energy – things are moving and changing a lot – requiring flexibility from us – no kidding.

As you see, the VIR – PI axis is very strong, almost like a Full Moon (two poles with the Earth in the middle). Lots of tension (red oppositions, green quincunxes), incl. a configuration called ‘Nervous Rectangle’ (can you see the elongated green / red rectangle?).
SO much nervousness now in the atmosphere. Collective problems, fears, anxieties… Let’s not turn into nervous wrecks!

How can we, collectively and personally, reconcile these opposing and at-odds factors that are in the field now?

  • CHIRON retro end of PI (which has also a PI undertone, ‘double PI’):
    Overwhelm, chaos, it’s all intertwined, co- and and interdependent, one thing leads to another, we’re all in this together. And bigger oceanic forces show us how vulnerable we are. What’s the healing agent in THIS???
    Retro energy suggests: It’s a recurring issue, and we need to go inwards to connect and surrender.
  • CHIRON opposite the NEW MOON end of VIR (which has also a VIR undertone, ‘double VIR):
    What can we practically DO about this and so much else that needs help now?!
    So much worry and concern, so much need for help. But we can’t be of help if we’re not healthy and capable (physically and emotionally), says VIRGO. Self awareness is required, and it’s important to be in a calm, grounded, and centred place (rather than ‘swept away’ through the Picean destabilization).Additionally, there is a  
  • T-Square of NEW MOON and CHIRON to SATURN / LILITH end of SAG: Who sees the big picture? Who’s in charge? Are leaders just shooting arguments of righteousness at one another that are at best obstacles and setbacks for a positive and wise direction, and leave large groups of people very vulnerable?
    Ultimately, ‘wild’ LILITH now in the Galactic Centre (esp. in Oct) knows that Truth is a Pathless Land (to quote J. Krisnamurti), so there is no right / wrong, n0t even a direction to take. 
    A test (SATURN) of how spiritual teachings and also political and philosophical beliefs (SAG) can be translated into difficult situations like these.
    In fact the call to be DONE with old limiting, separating stories and beliefs (SATURN in SAG)!
    I’d suggest to step into vibrations of healing and release to contribute those to the ‘field’, and stay away from the whole right – wrong debate, and stay focused on what matters most to you, and offer good energy from there.
  • SATURN end of SAG will go into exact square with CHIRON end of PI (not for the first but for the 3rd and last time, after Dec 2016 and Apr 2017) on Nov 2.
    A lot of pressure and ‘labour’ if we come from fear and resistence, from old stories and beliefs, to be on the path of freedom (SAG)and healing (CHIRON). Not easy but so important (SATURN) to let go, forgive (them and ourselves), and let go (PI).
    A lighter path opens up from there… trust is required. 
  • Also in the ‘Nervous Rectangle’:
    The opposition of JUPITER end of LI opposite URANUS retro in AR – which will be exact on Sept 27.
    All the relationships, all the coordination and negotiation going on. …

    What’s (im)balanced, (un)fair and (un)equal is now being seen better, and magnified BIG time, with JUPITER in LIBRA. How can we bring ourselves into balance (rather than always looking for or at ‘the other’), and make wise choices (JU in LI) – from our autonomy (UR in AR)?
    That can mean a sudden, unexpected, or spontaneous and freeing change of ‘plan’ or even agreement or even relationship. URANUS is now retro until early Jan 2018, a time to re-visit inner freedom and authenticity.

    The green quincunxes ‘surrounding’ the oppositions can turn the polarity into an interesting ‘quest’:
  • JUPITER in LI is in quincunx with CHIRON retro in PI (exact on Sept 23):
    Perhaps surrendering into what IS, letting go of making decisions, stepping into the choiceless choice brings peace and ‘tips the scales’…
  • The NEW MOON in VIR is in quincunx with URANUS retro in AR (exact Sept 19 / 20):
    Given the complexity of problems and ‘to do’s’ (end of VIR) how about finding an unexpected way out into freedom?!
    Like: Do you HAVE to do all THIS? What shows up NOW, right in front of you – instead of the big list? Who would you be without ….? Who’s the doer anyway – spiritually speaking?More VIRGO energy – YES!
  • MERCURY / MARS in VIR (they were together last Saturday, to the effect of lots of frustrated and angry talks and thoughts, yet to remember not to sweat the small stuff!!!), in opposition to NEPTUNE in PI this week (exact for MERCURY yesterday Sept 19, and exact for MARS in Sun Sept 24):
    Overwhelm leads to frustration and anger which can spill out (MARS – NEPTUNE). So let’s rather release and let go of the energy, perhaps with physical (MARS) / spiritual (NEPTUNE) like Qi Gong or Hatha Yoga! Good for us anyway…
     
  • VENUS entered VIRGO too, just yesterday.
    An incentive to be in our Temple of Wellness and Wholeness from which we can serve best.
    See special Astro~News blog, for the journey of VENUS through VIRGO, and the encounters with other Planets ‘she’ will meet.

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.

 

ASTRO~EXPERIENCES, via Courses. Workshops, and Embodied Astrology:

Our experiential and embodied Astrology groups have over time (the 13 years I’ve been facilitating workshops and classes) become quite potent and catalytic.
In a world of online offers, our intimate Astro hubs (6 – 10 participants) are a treasured way of being personally seen and involved – more commitment, a personal sense of community, and deeper effects.
Come join us, if deep synergy in a circle speaks to you!

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

 

 

TAURUS Super-New Moon April 26: New Ground, New Seed, New Embodiment of Our Loving Nature!

25 Apr

Wildly Calming Camus – Photo by Melanie

Mother Nature on the Pacific West Coast is RE-greening, boldly showing her colours, and inviting us into a multi-sensual immersion – yummm!

Just in time for the TAURUS Super NEW MOON –
THE Moon to plant new seeds in the fertile soil!
Exact tomorrow Apr 26 at 5:16 am PDT!

 

Indeed! The TAURUS NEW MOON will be a SuperMoon!

You might wonder: Wait a minute, it’s not a Full Moon!
New Moons can be SuperMoons too – when they are very close to the Earth (called perigee) – and this is the first of 3 SuperNewMoons!

Astrologically, a SuperSeed energy…
Ahhh, that’s why such an abundance(!!!) of NEWness is showing up now, offering us to nourish ourselves with ‘SuperFood’ on all levels… incl. to establish new healthy, life affirming habits!
OUT with the old and stagnant, IN with the new and nourishing!

 

This NEW MOON almost feels like a FULL MOON, doesn’t it??
WHY?
There’s a strong gravitational field with a closer SuperMoon, plus a lot of planetary action on the side of the SUN / MOON: Also NEPTUNE, CHIRON / VENUS, URANUS / MERCURY, and MARS are ALL  in the same direction from Earth perspective, and mighty JUPITER is opposite – see chart below!
BALANCE (the theme of the Apr 11 Full Moon) is clearly still a big deal!
Here is the chart for the TAURUS Super-New Moon:

 

TAU NM 2017

Among the planetary ‘players’ in the cosmic field TWO stand out – astrologically close to the NEW MOON in early TAURUS, super-charging the Astro~Sphere for bold Newness:

MERCURY retro is about to ‘click’ again with URANUS in late ARIES (encounter # 2) on Apr 28 (and once more on May 9, by then with MERCURY in forward mode):
Idea (MERCURY) explosion (URANUS)? So many fresh ideas are swirling around now (also with MARS now in GEMINI). And, even deeper: Radical liberation (URANUS in AR) FROM old sticky mental patterns (MERCURY retro started out in TAU), and freedom FOR a NEW YOU!


I bet you are tapping into this ‘weather system’, esp. if you have end of ARIES, CANCER, LIBRA, or CAPRICORN Astro features!

When MERCURY will be out of retro, on May 3, having passed URANUS again on May 9, and out of ‘storm’ on May 12 the Mind can be REnewed, after this REfreshing REtreat and REboot phase of April.

I love how in Eastern, mainly Buddhist views ‘MIND’ represents to the intellectual and emotional continuum – because it IS – they influence each other constantly.
In Astro Archetype language, there’s the thinking mind as in: MERCURY, and the feeling mind, as in: the MOON.
Both are close to each other with this New MOON (see chart).
A New Ground for the Mind can be found.

 

What does the SABIAN SYMBOL ‘oracle’ for the New Moon at 6°27 TAURUS say?
Ever SO related – the Revolution of LOVE renders the old ‘establishment’ obsolete:

PHASE 37 (TAURUS 7°): THE WOMAN OF SAMARIA AT THE ANCESTRAL WELL.

The Samaritan Woman at the Well by Annibale Carracci

 

KEYNOTE: The meeting of the traditional past and of the creative spirit pointing to the future.

The symbol refers to a most important, but usually narrowly interpreted (or interpreted away!) episode of the Christ mythos.
Early in his ministry, Jesus meets a Samaritan woman at an ancestral well. This woman belongs to a tribe despised by the Jews; moreover, she is unmarried and therefore on the fringe of even her own society. It is to just that kind of woman that Jesus reveals that he is the Messiah: “I am He,” a revelation that he apparently will not bestow even upon his disciples, at least not in words. (Words in occultism are the creative factor.)

What does this mean? Jesus, as the Avatar incorporating the Christ-Impulse, came to replace the old tribal order with a new order based on universal Love.
It is not to representatives of, or even to men still attached to, the old order that Jesus could reveal his spiritual, evolutionary and society-transforming status; they had instead to reach a point where they could discover his avatar-ship – as did Peter just before the Transfiguration scene. But to the woman of Samaria – who, in her openness to love’s urgings, had already repudiated any narrow subservience to the old order – Jesus could reveal his function. The highest meets the lowest when this lowest is free from traditional bonds and open to love. The creative future descends first to that which has become chaos. An old order is never open to a new Revelation until it has accepted disorder in the name of that Power which subsumes all forms of order, i.e. Love.

In this second stage of the five-fold sequence, a contrasting element enters upon the scene. It is no longer a collective-cultural effort based on past knowledge — as in the preceding symbol — but a “meeting” that introduces into the collective situation a totally new factor which transcends it. A NEW QUALITY OF BEING is revealed, which renders the old patterns obsolete.

Which brings us to VENUS (ruler of TAURUS) – the ‘Love Force’ – after ‘her’ retro tour back to PISCES where ‘she’ is exalted – LOVE IS:
VENUS has been travelling next to CHIRON in PISCES (the image of ‘Wounded Healer’ Jesus and the Samaritan woman in her spiritual openness come to mind and heart), initiating us into a healing, loving field – from which to act, attract, and start fresh – as VENUS is about to enter ARIES, also on Apr. 28 (when MERCURY retro meets URANUS).

Have you forgiven yourself and others, blessed the ‘chaos’, let go of past entanglements (VENUS in PISCES), and let ‘the field’ reveal to you the connection as-Love? Everything renews itself Nature-ally in this!

 

YinYang Infinite

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

Finally, let’s remember:
A NEW MOON is the union of the Divine Masculine (SUN) and the Divine Feminine (MOON), in ‘conception’.

That’s why I’d propose, to be in alignment with this union, let’s bring our Inner Masculine (the intention setting, active seed-planting side) and our Inner Feminine (the receptivity, openness) together for this, and perhaps every New Moon:
Intending and conceiving in balanced alchemical union.

Maybe one or the other has been a bit or a lot neglected in our life? 
Time to call them in, and invite balance.

 

YES, a big week, with the TAURUS Super-New MOON tomorrow Apr 26, VENUS into ARIES, and MERCURY retro / URANUS (both Apr 28)!

May we BE AS NATURE – ‘organic’, in abundance and flow, embracing our unique ways of being, allowing the outgrown and redundant to seize and new life to emerge, and being nourished and nourishing through LOVE – and photosynthesis!
May we be NATURE-ally grounded in the Beingness of all Life, and Embody our True Nature!
And hey, friends – let’s BE IN NATURE – it’s SPRING!

Serving with Love, and inviting even more Love in Action!
