Pisces Full Moon – Sept 20, 2021

Pisces Full Moon – Sept 2021

The Pisces full moon is at 28 degrees of Pisces and is conjunct Neptune making it an especially ethereal Full Moon. The Sabian symbol for this full moon is “a prism”.

What is a prism? It’s “a transparent body that is bounded in part by two nonparallel plane faces and is used to refract or disperse a beam of light”

Light is unity. Broken into parts it creates colours and the prism allows us to see those colours. Light is beautiful, but so is colour. Think of how each colour has its own energy and connotation. And how the duality of these two nonparallel structures helps us to see it.

Each colour can be seen negatively or positively. That’s the nature of duality. Purple can be spiritual or it can be snobby. Blue can be trustworthy or it can be depressive. Green can be luscious or it can be envy. Yellow can be joyful or it can be caution. Orange can be confident or it can be cheap. Red can be passionate love or it can be danger. For those of us who are striving to be better people. We try to stay out of the negative by being in the positive. But in the world of duality, you can’t get away from the divisions. We have to accept that both exist.

Some mistakenly think that being in the positive is being in the light. But the metaphor of the prism helps us to see it is not. Positive is only the opposite of negative. But pull the duality of all of those colours, and their positive and negative meanings together and you have unity. This is the work of Lightworkers. It’s a balance of duality. It’s shifting the nonparallel planes into parallel planes. It’s gathering in the light, recognizing that within the light is both positive and negative.

Embrace the power of the spectrum of colour at this Pisces full moon! Check-in with your spiritual selves to assess how well you accept all the colours and their meanings. Without fully embracing them both you will be unable to gather the light. Are you too far on the positive, forgetting the negative – sometimes this is called spiritual bypass. And with the Neptune energy, it’s easy to do.

This full moon will present us with some negative aspects so we get to check in with how well we respond. The moon so close to the end of the sign is making an out-of-sign opposition to Mars in Libra. Mars in Libra is a little passive-aggressive. And the emotions of the Pisces moon will make it seem wishy-washy. This kind of energy will bring up anger and outburst. They may not be directed directly at “you”… but rather at “some people”. “some people should know better”! some people being those who look, speak, think, act like you… but passively aggressively are not exactly you! The moon is also sextile to Pluto giving the emotions some power and a little bit of manipulation. The best way to handle this energy is to make conscious your unconscious and take responsibility for how you feel.

In this respect, we have a little help. Pisces is ruled by Neptune, but it also has a secondary ruler (or a traditional ruler), which is Jupiter. Jupiter is in Aquarius making a trine to Mercury in Libra. This helps us to be philosophical. It helps us to embrace logic, perspectives, beliefs, and humanitarianism. Mercury is in its shadow phase – it will go retrograde this week. So it will dance with Jupiter a little more over the next couple of weeks. Expect some interesting debates and challenges to your beliefs!

At the end of it all, Pisces and Neptune remind us that we are not separate! Separation is only an optical illusion! But boy do they both love an illusion!

Full Moon in Aquarius – Aug 22, 2021

Full Moon in Aquarius – Aug 22, 2021

This is our second full moon in Aquarius this year! The Aquarius Full Moon is at 29 degrees. Depending on which interpretation you look at, the Sabian symbol for this degree is “Moon-lit fields, once Babylon, are blooming white” or “ a field of Ardath in bloom”

Ardath means a flowering field. The word ardath shows up in 2 Esdras. It’s an apocalyptic book of the Bible, but not a canonized one, and so only appears in some versions of the Bible. It says:

2 Esdras 9:26

23 Nevertheless, if thou wilt cease yet seven days more, (but thou shalt not fast in them, 24 But go into a field of flowers, where no house is builded, and eat only the flowers of the field; taste no flesh, drink no wine, but eat flowers only;) 25 And pray unto the Highest continually, then will I come and talk with thee. 26 So I went my way into the field which is called Ardath, like as he commanded me; and there I sat among the flowers, and did eat of the herbs of the field, and the meat of the same satisfied me. 27 After seven days I sat upon the grass, and my heart was vexed within me, like as before: 28 And I opened my mouth, and began to talk before the most High, and said, 29 O Lord, thou that shewest thyself unto us, thou wast shewed unto our fathers in the wilderness, in a place where no man treadeth, in a barren place, when they came out of Egypt.

Babylon means ‘the gates of God’. And Ardath means ‘fields of flowering plants. If you piece these two interpretations, and this passage of the book of (some) bibles, you get the sense that gates to heaven and to communication with God are found in connection with nature. And maybe even plant medicines!

In the documentary, The Last Shaman (on Netflix), a young man, ivy league educated and successful in the concrete jungle, is so out of touch with himself that he can’t feel. In a deep depression and out of desperation, he goes to the South American jungle to look for a shaman to help. He is introduced to plant medicines and at one point, for a period of time, is left by himself with the plants (And a camera. It was, after all, a documentary). He is taken on an inner journey and at times you see him speaking to someone pleading for answers. At the end of his time with the plants, he seems at peace and in connection with himself.

Did the plants help him meet God?

On the other hand, the city of Babylon is often associated with materialism and evil. There is a story in the bible of the tower of babel. It was being built in Babylon at a time when there was one world and one language. The story goes that the tower was being built to reach heaven. God displeased with it, scatters humanity, and creates different languages so they can’t communicate.

The question at this full moon is, therefore “how do you find your answers?” You don’t necessarily need to eat psychotropic plants to find a connection, but there is also a warning about building castles in the sky.

The moon is conjunct Jupiter at this full moon. Jupiter expands everything it touches. It also sometimes brings a teacher. Make sure yours is not a false teacher!

The good news is that the ruler of the Full Moon is Saturn. While this brings a serious tone to the moon, Saturn makes helpful aspects to Ceres and the North Node in Gemini, and Venus in Libra. This is a particularly potent grand trine as Saturn is in one of its home signs and Venus is in her home sign. The opportunity exists for serious structures, love, and nurturing communication. Trines are potential, but they have a tendency to be complacent. You may not say “l love you” assuming that the other person knows. The trick with this Full Moon will be to say it even if we think others know.

Communications will be nurturing and will lead us in the right direction. Just make sure your communication starts from authenticity.

Happy Full Moon!

New Moon – August 8, 2021

When is the last time you sang? Break out your karaoke, or if you are shy, turn on the shower, get in. It’s time to belt it out!

Find a song that taps into your spirit and resonates with how you feel… Bohemian Rhapsody… Sing the body electric… Let it go… His eye is on the sparrow; youtube your favourite choir choir choir, and sing along – Hallelujah, Zombie or people have the Power with Patti Smith…

The new moon sets off the revolutionary energy of the Saturn/Uranus square and it asks us to do it with a Leo flare. The Sabian symbol for the new moon is a “volunteer church choir makes social event of rehearsal”. Normally getting together with a church choir to sing is not a revolutionary act… but as it turns out, during the Saturn Uranus square it is! The New Moon is at 16 degrees of Leo. Leo is all about courage, leadership, and creativity. Are you Simba, a young cub finding your voice? Are you a stately lion king? Or are you the cowardly lion, wondering if you even have a heart? It may take a break out in song, Lion King style to figure it find out!

You will know when you have found your theme song when the words accurately tap in to let out your emotion; when the melody makes you want to rewind and play it again; when the frequency lifts your spirit high and takes you to where you need to go! The New Moon squares Uranus at 15 degrees of Taurus whose Sabian symbol is “A man with a rakish silk hat, muffled, braves the storm”. Something about this new moon is not easy, and life becomes a Les Miserable soundtrack! Do you hear the people sing? There is a need to push through.  A need to stand out from the crowd and do it your own way. A need break free, even if you only break free in song!

As this is a New Moon you can and should dream a dream. The moon opposite Saturn however, shows that your dreams may be in reaction to a sense of abandonment and loss. Saturn brings emotional difficulty to the situation, but with that difficulty, we become very clear, and in reaction, dream and declare something that truly values ourselves.  It doesn’t feel comfortable in the moment, yet there is something deeply satisfying about having that clarity to say ‘never again’. That Saturnian energy then spurs you on to achieve your goal and takes steps to nurture your self-esteem

All of this energy at this new moon is also happening in fixed signs. It brings in a stubborn, technical, and prideful energy clashing. It may be a voice within that tells you that you sound tone-deaf, or like nails on a chalkboard, causing you to fear expressing yourself.  On the other hand, you may be drowning out others with your voice, not caring how your sound to others. Try to stay away from disharmony for the sake of disharmony. Your goal shouldn’t be to upstage anyone but to find the right tone to share your inner truth.

Happy New Moon in Leo!
