As I write this, the turbulent storm waters of the Atlantic ocean are once again churning human emotions and collective fears. Do we really believe as humans that we can direct our free will and focused intention (prayers) to create our reality, OR, are we merely victims of mass fear and chaos? We will see this theme repeated many times over, until we get it right. As the quintessential water sign, Pisces rules the ocean waters, the seas of mass emotion, as well as the ONENESS of spiritual consciousness. Its shadow side is pure chaos. Are we lost in a storm of emotions, or can we remain calm in the center of it all. How we direct our emotional compass is up to each one of us individually. Use this Full Moon to go inward, meditate, and find your spiritual center. We are also readjusting to the massive energy jolts of August with its two major eclipses, AND Mercury retrograde. If things start to feel overwhelming, remember to center and to BREATHE. Create your own safe sacred space wherever you are, and remember charity begins at home.
NEW: Crystal Light Essence Spray (#5) for Throat Chakra/Expression Center. It was created on the Aquarius Full Moon/8:8:8 eclipse window. Called “Finding Your Voice”, this essence works specifically with the Leo/Aquarius energy of both eclipses. Also, “Crystalline Consciousness” and “Love Body” (both limited editions) still available at www.pachaterra.com

THE FULL MOON IN SEPTEMBER 6, 2017:
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. The sign of Pisces is considered the Key to the Subconscious” and the vast ocean of collective human memory. Edgar Cayce calls this the “akashic record”. Memories and dreams which have been buried just below consciousness now come to the surface to give us more insight and information. This Full Moon in Pisces follows the full moon eclipse of last month (see my Aug 7 astrological update) and assists us in the total reconfiguration of our hidden emotional and subconscious programming. The sign of Pisces teaches us that transformation will not occur without compassion and forgiveness.
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. 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. Know that this is the time of “signs and wonders”; and miracles do indeed occur!
Pisces rules the feet, as well as the lymph system of the body; Virgo rules the stomach and digestive processes…brain chemistry….
If your Sun or Moon is in the sign of Pisces (or its opposite sign Virgo) it is part of your soul signature to be of service to humanity in your own way. 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.
This Full Moon will highlight your “inner Muse”, as well as your relations with the important women in your life. This is a message from the Universe to pay more attention to the creative, emotional and spiritual aspects of your life now. If we do not recharge our psychic batteries, we run a very major risk of “psychic” infection. If you have been feeling “out of it” or somewhat disconnected from reality over the past few days, 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.
During this Full Moon time, find positive ways to channel the Piscean 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.
Mercury turns direct on Sept 5, which means previously closed doors may reopen, if you have had the courage to be patient and revise your unconscious thinking patterns. We now have more information at our disposal following the eclipses…secrets are out….more truth is revealed.
Chiron, the Wounded Healer asteroid, still remains in the sign of Pisces giving 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.
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!
