We are still settling into this time of processing and sorting things through, as we move into the 4th and last quarter of the current lunar cycle. This current lunar cycle began on February 4 at the Aquarius New Moon. It ends on March 6 at the Pisces New Moon.
And here in the Northern Hemisphere on Planet Earth, we are moving through the last month of Winter, Sun in Pisces time.
The Pisces two fish swim in opposite directions, one upstream and one downstream. Upstream Pisces people are pointed toward the Spring Equinox, a symbol of hope as the Sun brings fresh air and new starts, a renewal of Nature and Life.
Downstream Pisces people are still looking back on Winter, and can be caught up in the cold hard reality of life’s sufferings and victimizations.
During Winter Pisces time we all are going back and forth from looking forward with hope and positivity or instead toward a looking back with regret, sadness, or sorrow.
This back and forth is the necessary processing needed to bring some closure from old times, while also getting ready for the new times.
And now this process has more energy and intensity than the usual Pisces Winter transition, as we have all been moving from a long Old Chapter of our lives into a New Chapter, a New Chapter that is on the road to an immanent Age of Aquarius.
Look out at our world now and see and feel the splitting up of our wholeness as a human family. The right and left sides of humanity seem to be in a tug -of -war, pulling apart and pulling away from a moderate center.
Left wing liberal and right wing conservative have been losing the central zone of connection with one another.
The Feminine, which represents the left sides of our bodies, is being ripped apart from the Masculine, which represents the right side of our bodies.
It seems that Yin and Yang, Light and Dark, Old and Young are finding only slim threads of connection now in the mainstream of human society.
This part of transformation can feel destructive and chaotic. It precedes a death of old ways and paradigms and ages. And those deaths precede the birth of new ways, paradigms and ages. The approaching conjunction of Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn is representative of this way-clearing destruction of a dying Age and Paradigm and its institutions and programs.
Individually, many who read this blog have evolved into the consciousness of a New Paradigm, to a lesser or greater degree on that New Age consciousness spectrum.
Transformation is not a one shot journey. Often one experiences a coming back of old issues previously thought to be long gone. This happens so we can do a more complete job of cleaning out and letting go of old traumas, wounds, dysfunctional patterns, and dying old belief systems.
There is no spiritual goal post or finish line, as transformation is cyclic and circular like the Sun and Moon, not a straight line of beginning to end. We are always evolving unless we decide to get off the ride of soul growth.
The cycle of Ages puts us in transition from the Age of Pisces into an Age of Aquarius, getting closer and closer for us all.
The splitting up of humanity and the destruction of old ways can be seen out in the greater world. The Pisces Age began with the power of the Roman Empire and ends with the last Empire ending with the ending of that Age.
The Roman Empire swallowed up many a human Earth culture and country. The more sophisticated current Empire is more crafty as it seeks regime change in countries it desires to dominate or colonize. Venezuela and Iran are being scoped out now.
The footsteps of potential presidential impeachment are pounding closer and louder now in Donald Trump’s ears.
As chaotic situations become more prevalent in our country and world soon, leaders will seek more domination of people and situations, in the disguise of bringing more law and order to the world.
Yes this week brings us into the last quarter of the lunar cycle starting on Tuesday the 26th, with the Moon in Sagittarius. Sun in Pisces is laid back and in the flow; Moon in Sagittarius is excitable and on a mission. Which way will you be turning into the 4th quarter?
On Friday March 1, relationship issues get the spotlight, as Venus in Capricorn squares Uranus in Aries just before Venus goes into Aquarius.
If any relationship has been stuck or is getting too boring, these aspects will tend to break issues out of any limiting boxes they are locked up into, provide breakthroughs, and maybe even seek some kinky diversion.
Next week brings more major shifts, as Mercury goes Retrograde on March 5, just before there is a New Moon in Pisces conjunct Neptune on March 6. Mercury stays retrograde until March 28.
Clarity will be at a premium next week. Not that there is crystal clarity now.
But for this week, lay back as much as possible, trust the flow of process, and wait for more guidance and direction in the future.
Most likely we will be waiting until after April 5, at the Aries New Moon, to get our marching orders for forward movement with clarity and direction.
In the meantime, we can do some extraordinary soul searching and deep soul work. Meditation and music, film and art, poem and plays are more aligned than science and math now.
Open up to your inner Nero now, an emperor who played the fiddle as Rome burned.
America will be OK if it goes back to its higher values now, and away from its needs to be a Superpower Empire that dominates the world with feelings of superiority. That is not the great America I want to go back to.
I want to be a part of an America that respects true diversity, freedom of speech, equality, and liberation from anything or anyone who tries to take power away from “of the people, by the people, and for the people”.
And those principles apply to all the world citizens, not just the chosen few.
Add Truth and Love being more important than wealth, fame, and privilege. Then the world will be one I can feel good about leaving to future generations.
