On our way to the end of the Pisces Sun cycle and therefore a closing of the zodiacal year. The New Moon on the 22nd will mark the vernal equinox, Sun Moon conjunction in Ares, and the beginning of a new cycle. Beautiful isn't it?
I am really feeling the weight of this short period of time here at the transition of the cycle. I mentioned earlier int he week that this moon cycle we're in, the last quarter, is naturally reflective and possibly challenging. Mars and Mercury continue their retreats retrograde, Mars through Virgo and through some necessary purification, and Mercury back towards Uranus where there was surely some insight that was missed about 2 weeks ago that needs remembering. I know I had an influx of inspirational thoughts that I need to review. So it's time to retreat and retrieve some of those lost memories of healthier living, attunement with Monther Earth, and relationship with one another. It's also time again to remember those things that will break down those barriers of conformity and oppression. Hopefully you will choose to utilize this time to create a serene retreat rather than to feel the sting of a forced retreat.
In these last days of Pisces I am thinking back to that Pisces New Moon. It was trine to Saturn in Libra the force of grounding and responsibility in relationships. A trine is an easy flowing, harmonious (moving together--please note--not a judgement of good or bad) relationship. I thought at the time of how beautiful it could be to find grounding with the interrelatedness of all of creation, for the collective to join together to dissolve boundaries in a healthy, practical way.
I look at my wife, 9 months pregnant with our first child, and see clearly in the physical the dissolution of ego!!! My wife as strong as I could ever imagine not just prepared but in real time sacrificing herself for another. Totally responsible for the practical care and maintenance of this other soul. How totally and beautifully Piscean yet at the same time Saturnian. Saturn really ought to get its due here. My wife's response-ability has certainly been at task and she has answered the call. Fitting actually, that as I sit here writing this, unable to sleep once again at 3 AM, that the Moon is in Capricorn the "home" of Saturn. Just another example to me of 2 things: 1. astrology works and 2. It's god/dess's way of talking to us...I think the message now is go to sleep.
Keep in mind for the next couple of days some good intentions to make for the coming new moon on the 22nd. Starting around the 18th or 19th is the Balsamic Moon Phase and it is the time to start emptying out all that stuff that may not be working so that there's room for new stuff to encourage growth and evolution, and of course the new moon is a powerful time for beginnings.
