March 6, 2019 is the New Moon in Pisces. It’s a particularly powerful one that I would like to share some messages about.
This New Moon conjuncts Neptune in Pisces, and coincides with a Pisces Mercury Retrograde and the movement of Uranus into Taurus – a major 8 year transit (please read my article on this transit for more in-depth insight). Just a few weeks ago, the asteroid of wounds, healing, vulnerability and mentorship, Chiron, also changed signs from Pisces to Aries where it will reside for 8 years as well.
To put it simply, this is a moment where the movements of the heavens are reflecting great change down here on earth, and so we can expect our worlds to evolve and change in kind. The two long-term planetary ingresses initiate significant new phases of growth and the very intense Piscean energy that pervades the month of March shows a watery transition – filled with long abandoned memories, grief, and deep emotional release.
Some keywords/concepts for this month: Reflective, mirroring, nostalgia, flux, vague, confusion, visionary, deeply emotional, inspired, afraid, facing and embracing the past, transition, holding patterns, finishing what’s unfinished, preparing space, clearing the past to invite the future, connecting with spirit, embracing change.
In this month’s message, perhaps appropriate to the Pisces Mercury Rx active right now, I decided to go forgo my usual astrological breakdown & dissection and go directly into the energy. My hope is for a simpler, more direct message as a result. Please enjoy.
In this era of great change each and every one of us is undergoing processes of transformation. For years now, people have asked me, “When does it end?” And the answer is that it never ends. Maybe the day comes when change is stabilized, but I could not tell you when such a reality would come to pass and if it is soon or in the far distance. For now, I perceive that it is right to accept that change is the new normal, and that we can learn to embrace and enjoy it instead of holding so much resistance to it. Resistance is nothing more than a survival mechanism and it has served its purpose. Now invites surrender.
Many of us have conditions in our lives that cause us to spin in cycles: Visions that seem out of reach. Paths we resist taking. Patterns we can’t ever seem to address. Intuitively, we know that we need to move forward, but it feels unsafe and unknown to leap into things that have no guarantees, no specific pattern, no outline. We fuss about being accepted, having enough money, and always knowing what to expect. We worry too much about whether or not we’re doing things right. Unconsciously, we keep ourselves stuck and blame circumstance for our failures.
What arises now is something different – both the motivation to change and the vision of where the root of the problem lies. Reflections of the past show up in everyday moments and take us back to places we had long concluded we’d rather not be. But observing and feeling them anew, having changed as much as we have, grants a new perspective. Don’t run from your reflection – because one day you’re going to have to accept that it is your face.
What is the mirror really for? In it we see what we really are – what lingers around us, what weakens us, what undermines us from embodying the real self. Even if we know intellectually, perhaps we still have not seen it truly yet. Within us the emotional paradigms can seem quite vast and unfathomable – from where did they arise? It could be well beyond what we think and anyway, it’s not important – what’s more important is recognizing the integration of our hundred selves and the wars within as nothing more but friction between our multi-dimensional aspects. What we are going through is a sort of fusion – eventually it will melt down into one, but there are still pieces that knock together unpleasantly and of course, there is also the fire scouring the impurities in tiny bursts and spontaneous flare-ups.
What I’ve noticed is that it won’t work to reject the old faces, old fears, or lament what has past. Instead these must be drawn in and digested, incorporated into the being – so we can go forward with wholeness and acceptance of self -- past and future. We are being haunted by the scars upon our heart, our deepest unprocessed pain, everything left in the boxes of the past that we decided to shut off and not feel. Even if we’ve met these ghosts before, still there are residuals -- threads kept intact, pieces unconsidered, broken shards with some answers.
The past and future might have long looked like a straight line – but in this moment they are all joining together – lines bending back to create circles, all closing at once, meeting at one point. That point being now. That point being you.
Above all things it is about wholeness through drawing ones spirit back into oneself. And through this, old pain and heaviness is slowly, naturally, and effortlessly dissolved. Whatever threshold lies in wait requires this merging. For reasons that we don’t have to know now, but also for one reason that is obvious: For completion.
In coming months and years we will be embarking on a new journey. It is a journey we’ve been working towards for some time. Quite simply, it is a journey into the future – into light – into a developing new paradigm of reality. And it is not to say that this is the kind of thing where one day we suddenly pack our bags and arrive – no, it will continue to unfold in a gradual manner. The world will continue to play out its chaos. We will continue to grapple with ourselves. But what I am seeing is a kind of tipping point – the see-saw is equalizing – the window between two worlds is open and soon, we will find ourselves on the other side. Thinking, creating, wondering, “What’s next?” in a more joyful way. With more confidence, personal power, and control.
In our current world, nature and civilization exist in conflict and contrast. Yin and Yang are separated. Human and earth too distinct. The lack of integration within the human body creates disease, and so it could be observed that the lack of integration of man with nature is a form of disorder, and the true root of our current condition. The path to reclaim our connection to the earth is quite long and the distance exceeds our view. At the same time, the distortions of human consciousness are profound and deeply embedded by millennia of conditioned response – so of course we find it painful, destabilizing and confusing to be where we are now – the place in-between.
But with sincerity and faith, we can go forward. Trust in goodness. Trust that you can be healed. Trust in the power of the human spirit. That we can overcome. Together we already have the skills, knowledge and creativity to change the world, to correct the corruption, and find a new order. And soon, we will also start to see the way through. But for now we have to surrender and trust that wherever we are going next, we are getting closer to what we’ve hoped for.
It starts with ourselves. It starts inside. Always. Every time.
How can we embrace every person we’ve ever been – in this lifetime and in the past? How can we accept every experience we’ve ever had? How can we love the joy and the pain, the beauty and the sorrow, with equanimity? And forgiveness?
It’s time we stop denying life to erase darkness -- because we know it doesn’t work. Darkness is dispersed only when it is seen. Health only exists when there is acceptance, integration and digestion. Wholeness includes everything, no exceptions.
Yes, these times are intense, taxing, and filled with difficult inner trials. We must remain vigilant to establish good habits for our health and well-being just to stay on top of it all. But in the energy of change, there is also the possibility of miracles. Our ails help us to grow.
If we have beautiful dreams, no matter how grand or how simple, let’s nurture them with faith and devotion. Let us meet them with our complete, whole, and integrated selves.
