You must feel it deep within you. That sense of being on a threshold of a dawning reality? The awareness that beneath the ongoing lies and deception, is a heart of kindness, compassion and consideration, fragile, grieving and sad, but yet ever in a state of hope.
You must be aware that you are being encouraged to pull away from the drama and focus on creating afresh from your own heart, as you will have felt, in January, a change of heart focus and a hunger to lead from your heart, as opposed to over rationalise everything from the multitude of information sources that you have access to.
Death is merely a way of facilitating growth and awareness. It engenders humility and compassion and it opens your heart to a deeper sense of love, appreciation and growth. Death is also not final. It is merely a stage in an ongoing cyclical spiral of experience, a process that every woman knows intimately. Having the opportunity to reflect on what you have learnt, what you would like to continue with and what needs to be let dwindle is a natural process ahead of any endings, because birth grows out of those darkening reflections.
We live within a sea of myriad cycles of consciousness, each with their own phases of starts and ends. Those rhythms in your life are reflected in the ebb and flow of your cosmic consciousness, just as they are reflected in the life of the collective in the cyclical rhythms of the planetary orbits around the Sun and in consort with each other. When we move through a time when several cycles reach the birthing stage, we experience an intensity of contrasting emotions, frustration is joined with anticipation; grief with relief; and melancholy with hope.
What it is being replaced with is not yet clear as you are between the worlds, dancing between broken and whole, with light and dark being weaved within you. You can feel that things will not be the same but still do not know what is truly being asked of you. This unknowing groundless ground is your home, a home where creativity and the intelligence are overwhelming, if you can step away from control and embrace the oceanic tide that constantly vacillates.
As you approach the union of the lights, five other cycles are within their death throes – the passion of your heart; the empowerment of love; the cleansing of your vital energy; the determination of your mind; and the love for humanity. Configured uniquely within your own constellations, culminatively the sheer frequency of ending cycles reflects the weariness and bone exhaustion that you are observing in the world, along with the deeply spiritual movement that naturally occurs when deep existential questioning arises in times of darkness.
Every dawn holds the omens of the time ahead and heralds a shift in consciousness. The dawn of the Lights of your Consciousness on the 2nd of March holds a little more weight than the average dawn, due to the presence of five other dawns. As you are aware from my writing over the past decade, the four Beings that guide the emerging ‘form’ of consciousness have three ways of exercising themselves within this plane of existence. Those twelve doorways open us to the deeper experience of Being and of becoming unified with the Absolute. Month on month, we get to replenish our vital Lights with a renewal of each consciousness. The realm of the sOul is up for renewal, as it does every four months.
But the March renewal is about the living waters of your soul, which concerns the way in which you share and receive the heart of another, be that a person, a concept, a group or an Ideal.
Precious and vital to being, it is never lost even when your physical body is cut open. Held within the matrix of form, it bathes and protects the living ethereal memory of your body, the DNA, and it is from this element that we architecture life, express experience with colour and tone, and open the pathway to immortality.
When shared and exchanged with another, the fusion of ideals, the broadening of awareness and the heightening of experience, deepens our compassion, enables our compassion and humbles our sOul. Connection is vital. True connection. Intellectual exchange is not sufficient. It is important to feel the presence of another. And in time of social distancing, of perpetuation of fear of contamination, of an external enemy, the mind can draw into itself, rendering the heart forlorn, isolated and stagnant.
One of the three forms of Water is called Mutable, or Pisces, and it refers to the exchange of emotionally charged light between all living and non-living things. Wherever this sign falls within your birth chart shows you where you can actively and consciously lose all sense of Self, let go all notions of ego and merge with someone or something, as you move beyond the illusion of the ego mind and return to the One-ness of Source Consciousness. And it is on the 2nd of March that the Sun and Moon align within this Living Water sign.
Water is our life giver, nourishing and activating life, permeating all aspects of physical reality, binding and connecting us together, a lunation within this element has the simultaneous impact of raising your state of consciousness in all other areas of your life and within the Mutable mode, you have the possibility of raising the heart level in the lives of everyone else!
So as the Moon disappears from our night sky, a space opens up to view the celestial Source more clearly. That our universe is a reflection of us and vice versa, when we gaze into the apparently fathomless beauty of the night sky, we are actually looking deep with our own numinosity. With no light to distract us from our own interiority, we are afforded a space to travel into our Deep. The vibration created by the synergy of OUR cosmic in and out breaths coming together, creates a portal within our interiority to forge a new relationship to the re-kindled archetype.
It is dark for a little over two days prior to new moon (as well as for about two days immediately after the new moon) it is useful to take this time to contemplate and reflect on what you need to emotional share and receive in the year ahead. For me, holding steadfast the path of love remains my highest aspiration and as well as a challenge, especially when engaging with anyone beyond my immediate circle of care and protection. We create from our heart and not mind, and the external world is merely a mirror of our internal state. Therefore, what you create from is what you receive, and that creation stems not from a mental awareness, but from a deep experiential knowingness.
Ghandi, I believe, once said, ‘be the change you wish to see in the world’, and it is a belief I hold dear to my own heart. Living what you feel, as opposed to affirming it, is what the sOul of Pisces teaches us. Pisces is Living Emotion, emotion that is freely exchanged and shared with the world. Love continues to ask you to feel more and to bare witness to the true potential of your life.
If it helps, remember that love is what you are born with whereas fear is what you have learned. As you encounter the power of your heart, as joy penetrates your essence, opening up your heart-centre more tangibly, the unlearning of fear and prejudice and the acceptance of Love in your heart is central to the spiritual dimension of this planetary coupling. So take the opportunity to remember love whenever it presents itself. As you stare into the rising sun on the morn of this Piscean lunation, allow its “rays” burn into your heart. Don’t look away and breathe in the beautiful pink and orange colour adorning the sky. Open yourself and let love penetrate you to your core.
Thank you for taking the time to read or listen to these lunation thoughts and I wish you all the best with the plethora of new beginnings unique to this lunation, along with continued lOve during this time wherein some are hell bent on egoic greed, vanity, material accumulation and perpetuation fear, strike and division. This is a profound time in our collective spiritual evolution and it is a time to heart-centred compassion and kindness.
