Happy Autumn Solstice! This September is one of the busiest astrological months of the year with two major eclipses, the Autumn Equinox and Mercury retrograde! If you feel like time is speeding up…it is! We are rapidly approaching the cosmic gateway or “stargate” of the September 23rd and the Equinox/Eclipse cycle, which opened up on March 21st with the Spring Equinox /Solar eclipse. Think of these two Equinox months as cosmic “bookends” assisting humanity’s leap into a new paradigm (New Earth/New Age). Much like the Fool in the Tarot deck, we are leaving the past and fearlessly stepping into the “unknown” future. I will be spending the month of September in Peru “connecting the dots” (or “stargates”) of Machu, Nazca, and the Great Pyramid. This is the completion of an ancient cycle balancing the masculine feminine polarities of Atlantis and Lemuria. Depending on how the September eclipses affect your natal planets, you may feel the winds of change around you for the next 6 months to a year. I am booking appointments for October 2015 readings now. Learn how these major cycles will affect your reality.
AUGUST 29 – 30, 2015: FULL MOON IN PISCES (The Moon is Full at 2:35am on August 30)
This Full Moon falls in the sign of Pisces, the final sign of the zodiac, which is mutable (shape-shifting) water sign urging us on to the evolution of human consciousness. Pisces rules of the magical, emotional realm of our subconscious and dream worlds. It is the sign of the poet and mystic; artist and healer; savior and sinner; doctor and patient; shaman and physicist. Pisces is probably the most misunderstood sign of the zodiac; and like its symbol, the two fishes swimming in opposite directions, it is a sign that embraces both duality and Oneness…the universe where subatomic physics and religion merge.
This 12th sign of the zodiac is a complete paradox; yet, from the seeds of chaos and “unknowingness” Pisces births the “new age” of humanity. The “old age” of Pisces was associated with the symbol of the “fish”; now as we move forward in our evolutionary process, Pisces becomes the “Grail” which holds the elixir of life, symbolizing our baptism in the New Age. The planet Neptune is the “ruler” of the sign of Pisces. As humanity awakens out of it “old” Neptunian illusions of fear and victimhood, the “fog” clears and we become more open to unconditional love and respect for all living beings. This is the greatest lesson that Pisces has to offer: unconditional love and compassion. Think about where you can give or receive more love in your life; where you can refrain from judging others negatively; where you can help someone in need…and always offer thanks for whatever is good in your life. We will be hearing much about world-wide political maneuvering in regards to the Middle East, as well major scientific and archaeological breakthroughs over the next two weeks. Know that this is the time of “signs and wonders”; and miracles do indeed occur!
Pisces is the sign of “Christ Consciousness”. Where you find the sign of Pisces in your chart (any planets as well as the house placement) is where you find connection to the divine and surrender to something larger than your own ego; it where you choose to be of service to humanity in your own way. Pisces rule service in the sense of all healing modalities: retreats, spas, ashrams, monasteries, museums, hospitals & hospice. It also symbolizes our creative impulses: art, music, dance…. the unconscious, DREAMS….oracles, seers, psychics, as well as sailors and navigators. Since the sign Pisces rules the unconscious, creative process of the right brain, many actors, musicians, artists, spiritual leaders, and scientists have Pisces planets prominent in their birth charts. Pisceans are very sensitive and emotional creatures, but they can also get “lost” in their own inner worlds. They are amazing healers and artists; however, they can become overloaded with emotional “stuff” from other people, as well as their own. Wherever Pisces falls in your birth chart, shows where you are both sensitive and creative.
This Full Moon will highlight that area….it is your “inner Muse”. So, it is very important to honor the part of yourself (the Muse) that needs a “retreat” from the chaos and negativity of everyday 3D world. If we do not recharge our psychic batteries (drugs, alcohol, caffeine and nicotine deplete; they do not recharge), we run a very major risk of “psychic” infection. Piscean energy can leave us overly sensitive, but foggy. If you have been feeling “out of it” or somewhat disconnected from reality, you are not alone. The nature of Pisces is to have us become an “empty vessel”, letting go of guilt, blame and anything that holds us in darkness. Positive ways to channel Pisces energy: meditation, yoga, listening to harmonic music, watching a good film, having a “spa day”, walking in nature….or just taking some “quiet time” a few minutes a day. Give yourself permission to love yourself more. We cannot be of service to others, if we don’t pay attention to our own needs
This Full Moon has some very potent aspects with it. Chiron, the Wounded Healer asteroid, is also in the sign of Pisces and is aligned with the Sun, Moon and Neptune. This gives us hope for healing old emotional and psychic wounds on a very deep collective level. Lifetimes of martyrdom and suffering, chaos and pain can be healed as we open up to the wave of compassion and unconditional love emanating to us from the Great Cosmic Mother. Whether we call her Isis, Kwan Yin, Mother Mary or by any of her myriad of names, we are being called to embrace the Feminine Consciousness, which resides in all of us.
The upcoming eclipses in September will highlight this, as we disengage from the old patriarchal, war-mongering, matrix and magnetize the Divine Feminine, Joy, Love and Abundance into our lives. Three days after next month’s solar eclipse on September 16th, Jupiter opposes Neptune. Jupiter and Neptune together signify mysticism, idealism, generosity, fantasy and delusion. Mars trine Uranus on September 8 brings opportunities, optimism and ingenuity and many scenarios for thinking “out of the box”. This period beginning with the Full Moon in Pisces and continuing through the September eclipse cycle is a very transformative one, if we have the courage and faith to look past the “illusion” of 3 D. These eclipses also mean patriarchy has the opportunity to heal itself…compassion can override violence, but forgiveness is the key. As we know, most wars on this planet have been fought in the name of religion (or against it). The 20th century spawned the crowning of the new god, “petroleum”. The sign of Pisces rules both religion and oil. Do we actually need to experience yet another world war before humanity learns its lessons at the end of the Age of Pisces? I tend to think not. Our spiritual destiny is to evolve and move forward, not to catapult ourselves back to the dark ages. We can no longer play the “blame game” and scapegoat others. Facing exactly what we have been most reluctant to face within ourselves without projecting it onto others is one of humanity’s greatest lessons at the end of this age. The message of Pisces is to find “God” within ourselves and to recognize “God” in each person we meet.
Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac encompassing many ancient spiritual lineages and paths to healing. The sign of Pisces is connected with the Egyptian God, Nefertum, and the patron of aromatherapy. In Egyptian mythology, Nefertum was depicted as a lotus flower at the creation of the world, which had arisen from the primal waters. The science of aromatherapy or “scent alchemy” in ancient Egypt was a sacred art and intrinsic in magical ceremonies and ritual.
The blue lotus is depicted on every temple and tomb wall signifying the codes for immortality. We know that scent opens up pathways in the brain associated with memories. Oils also carry electromagnetic frequency. Our brains get “amped up”, and new neuronal pathways open up. One of the best ways to release emotional (as well as past life debris) is by aromatherapy massage. It stimulates cellular memory and releases toxins at the same time… a wonderful treat for yourself during the Pisces Full Moon!
