Get ready for a focus on the dreamy, mystical energy of Pisces to start off this upcoming New Moon period. The ‘BOWL’ formation of the lunation emphasizes receptiveness & intuitive process. 4 of the main planets cluster together from 20* Pisces to 24* Pisces, led by a frisky Mars in Gemini & supported by a direct moving Pluto in Capricorn. We still have significant Aquarian energy to facilitate the intellectual process which is vital when the Sun, Moon, Venus & Neptune are all grouped together in nebulous Pisces. Feel it, for sure but then think it through by taking a step back. Detach, detach, detach! It’s necessary when there is so much mystical energy incoming!
This New Moon, significantly, is square the NODES which are transiting through Sagittarius/Gemini. Issues around spirituality are on the table. Do you believe what you see or do you see what you believe? Think about that. We are living through ‘critical times, hard to deal with…when men have become lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God…having a FORM of godly devotion but proving FALSE to its power…’2 Timothy 3: 1-5.
All true seekers of purity of spirit MUST turn away from such as these. We must find our own individual inner truth that aligns us to the wisdom of LOVE in these hateful, divisive times. And we CAN do it starting here, starting now! The energy is currently all direct, with no holds barred! Every single planet is forward moving. This is a clear signal to set things into motion in your life. Clarify your dream (the Pisces energy) & then hustle, kiddo, hustle. The retrogrades begin to kick in at the end of April when first Pluto stations retrograde, but until then, its eyes front, feet moving, go, go go…
The Sabian Symbols for this New Moon are:
Begin this current cycle with RIGHT INTENTION. Fill your mind with ‘good things’. Surround yourself with others who are pursuing peace & righteousness. Stay away from anything that contributes to dark energy around you. Keep your aura crystal clean; at least, to the extent that you can. What sorts of habits can you purge from your life? What about drugs? Alcohol? Hedonistic pursuits? Can you eliminate or at the very least reduce their presence in your life? You are what you consume, what you think, what you desire. Look at each aspect of your life in this way & be brutally honest with yourself. Being a spiritual seeker is NOT easy or simple. It requires diligence, commitment & perpetual self-review.
The reward is an unfolding one if we can align to spiritual practice in our everyday lives. It is the purity of self-expressiveness coupled with a simplicity of being, innocence. How beautifully this is pictured in the Virgo Sabian Symbol. The White Lamb suggests the Christ energy of compassion, love & forgiveness while “Mary” represents the energy of nurture, compliance & sacrifice to a higher purpose.
These symbols clearly demonstrate the path of the pilgrim; that one who is avid in her pursuit of purposeful, mindful existence. The best way to combat the existential crisis that everyone blabs about is to fill one’s life with a REASON TO CONTINUE TO EXIST. Not rocket science, baby, just simple wisdom…
