Moon in Pisces

Apr 14, 2015 to Apr 16, 2015

 

On a Pisces Moon, think foot massage. Soak your soles in a calming lavender bath. Feet are ruled by Pisces; maybe it’s the way they cushion against the hard ground. Let yourself drift and dream today. Forget that pressured list in your day planner; don’t bother with a watch. You’ll accomplish more by letting your intuition guide you from this to that. Mood enhancers are films, music and poetry. But watch the spaced-out bag boy at the supermarket; he’s likely to leave your ice cream on the checkout stand. Steer clear of whiners and martyrs. There’s moisture in the air-fog, mist, tears. Better to convert self-pity or sentimentality into a broader compassion for the world. And if you’ve let your meditation practice lapse, this is a great Moon to return. Find the window that opens to your one-ness with all.

Traditional astrology considers Mercury in Pisces to be a difficult placement. The reason is that Mercury is primarily concerned with data and details. Watery Pisces, however, is about instincts and feelings. It is interested in fusion and the big picture, which can make Mercury’s grasp of facts a little fuzzy.

Communication is more impressionistic when Mercury is in Pisces. Feelings are paramount, which can lead to confusion when one is looking for precision. Finding the words to express the vastness of Pisces can be challenging, as well. Using symbols, images, art and music can be good ways to capture these big concepts that go beyond the boundaries of ordinary language.

This can be a good time to move outside the limits of ordinary perception and speech. Intuition and imagination can work more easily at this time. The censoring aspects of the mind are looser, allowing a wider, if less precise, picture of reality to emerge.

Extra care may be required to keep normal communication on track, since we all may be hearing and seeing in less objective ways. Accounting skills can give way to artistic ones, yielding brilliant dreams, but less than clear numbers.

Not surprisingly, there are many musicians born with Mercury in Pisces. They range from the tortured: Kurt Cobain, Andy Gibb to the torturing: Yoko Ono, Alice Cooper to the talented: Celine Dion, Elton John.

The chameleon-like quality of Pisces serves actors John Travolta, Glenn Close, Peter Fonda and James Caan, to name a few. Commentaries by Camille Paglia, Ellen Goodman and George Stephanopoulos reflect Mercury in Pisces’ wide range of views and social interests. Similar qualities may be found in fellow Merc in Pisces Ralph Nader, Gloria Steinem and Al Gore.

Your Daily Planet Tracker: Neptune in Pisces, Now Until Mar 30, 2025

Neptune in Pisces

Now Until Mar 30, 2025

Neptune’s entry into its watery home sign signals a spiritual awakening that crosses the threshold of our individual differences to reconnect humanity in a web of common awareness. Compassion shifts from an idealistic concept to an active energy that puts us in touch with one another in a more emotional way. The last time Neptune was in Pisces — from 1847 through 1862 — concern for others was reflected in the abolitionist movement to end slavery in the United States and to free the serfs in Russia. It’s likely that this transit of Neptune will again put issues of injustice and inequality into the spotlight.

Dissolving boundaries on a personal level is both inspiring and confusing. As the great tide of humanity rises and falls we can feel that we are being swept away by forces beyond our control. These may, in fact, relax borders among nations in a long-term process that puts common concerns above separatist national interests. It’s possible that religious differences also become less problematic as the faithful focus more on flexibility of spirit than rigidity of ritual. We may grow more psychically attuned with one another and with nature. The unifying forces of Neptune and Pisces remind us that “all is one” is not an abstraction but the way the world really works.

The value of water is likely to increase, along with investments in conservation and desalinization. However, the effects of pollution might also grow more evident, leading to extensive research to address these problems. Neptune in Pisces increases sensitivity to toxins, requiring more thorough cleanup of existing waste and a more cautious approach to introducing new products into the environment. These may be the last days of plastic as we know it, replacing current chemical formulas with biodegradable substitutes. The negative effects of prescription drugs could be more obvious, precipitating radical changes in their manufacture and use while increasing the value of natural medicine and organic food.

Scanning the Stars: Sun in Pisces

Sun in Pisces

by Michael McClain, Astrology-Numerology.com

 

The Sun is in this last sign of the zodiac from 20 February until 20 March each year. The symbol for Pisces is the Fish.

 

In Pisces, the Sun is sensitive and idealistic. You are “tuned in” to your environment, and aware of everything happening in your world, and to everyone around you. Pisces is the dream sign of the zodiac. You may be one of the true dreamers of the world, often getting caught up in impractical plans and ideas. You absorb the ideas and the mental outlook of those around you, for better or for worse. The decisions that you make may be workable, if sometimes emotional and erratic. Often these decisions are made on hunches and feelings with little or no foundation in fact. Creative, spiritual and often a bit mystical, you can be impractical and illogical.

 

You’re a moody and introspective person, and it’s hard for others to understand you. It may be hard for you to understand yourself sometimes. Your temperament varies from being optimistic to being acutely pessimistic.

 

Although you may be very shy and unassuming, you care deeply about your stature and succeeding in your endeavors. You may feel vulnerable and anxious when you are unsure of your status and circumstances. You have a deeply hidden inner pride and when this is attacked in any way, you react emotionally.

 

Compassionate, tolerant, kind, and loving, you are easily influenced by others because you don’t want to hurt anyone. Always charming and likable, you are good to those in distress. You are as fond of animals as you are people. You are sympathetic to the world’s unfortunate, including every stray animal and helpless soul you meet. You are more concerned with others’ well-being than your own, and you want to save people from themselves. You are easily taken in by a hard-luck story and often leave yourself open to be used. You are always there with a shoulder to cry on for your friends in need. Frequently people take advantage of this compassionate nature.

 

If you are a typical Pisces, you’re likely to suffer from an inferiority complex. You probably lack an adequate sense of self-confidence, as you are so very sensitive, shy and introspective. You never feel that you do enough, so you often overwork, putting stress on your physical body. In your quiet way, you accomplish much. Having a natural tendency to become a workaholic, you must have a generous amount of escape time, preferably with total solitude.

 

Pisces, more than any other sign, draws strength or weakness from the rest of the horoscope. The nature of Pisces is very adaptable and pliable. You may have to fight for a sense of stability and to resist the impulses of the moment.

Scanning the Star for February 18th/19th, 2015: New (Black) Moon

February 18th/19th, 2015: New (Black) Moon

 

a message from Sarah Varcas

You may be wondering what sign this New Moon is in and what’s a Black Moon? Answering the second question is easier than the first: a Black Moon is the second New Moon during the Sun’s journey through a single zodiac sign (known as a ‘solar month’). The answer to the first question is a little more complex, for whilst, technically speaking this New Moon is in Aquarius, it is so close to the cusp of Pisces it’s almost redundant to allocate it one sign or the other. This is a rare state of affairs and one with great significance. For whilst one often hears mention of planets being ‘on the cusp’, most often they’re actually in the first or final degrees of a sign and someone’s playing fast and loose with the cuspal zone! This New Moon, however, is most definitely on the cusp placing us in the borderlands between one sign and another.

The Moon is new at 11:48 pm GMT on 18th February. Had it been a few minutes later it would have been in Pisces. But it wasn’t and that’s what matters! This Moon resonates deeply with our current state as we cross the border between astrological ages. The Age of Pisces fades as the Aquarian Age takes shape. This process takes many generations to complete and it would be wrong to state categorically we are now in the Aquarian Age just as it would be wrong to state the opposite. To be alive during the shift of the ages is a great blessing although it can, at times, feel like a great curse!! Akin to enduring an endless earthquake which repeatedly hits wherever we thought we were safest, it may look like something of a personal disaster which turns out to be the biggest stroke of collective luck when we finally decide to go with the flow and see where it takes us. This Moon assures us that the efforts of Uranus and Pluto in their square since 2012 will not have been in vain if we surrender to the imperative of deep and enduring, not fleeting and cosmetic, change.

The true power of this Moon lies in her foresightedness, for she brings visions of hope for a world made new. It may look like wishful thinking and provoke our inner cynic, but she remains unperturbed by those who fail to see what to her is undeniably clear: that what we are as human beings, our very nature, the communities we build, the relationships we share, the priorities upon which our world is built, are dissolving now, slowly but surely, like it or not. Whether we are waving an excited goodbye or clinging on for dear life, change is upon us, so deep and so wide that nothing and no one can avoid it. And rather than change happening to us, in fact we are the change. Evolution happens within, as an integral process that animates the evolving life-form. It’s not an event but a way of being, a changed heartbeat, a new flow of Vital Force in each and every cell. As this planet shifts so do we. This Black Moon affirms that yes, we live in the End Times. But the ending is a new beginning and the shadows of the abyss over which many are peeking right now is merely hiding the light of rebirth which burns forever bright in the heart of darkness.

Just as our each and every cell is made new by the forces of change that currently flood our planet, we each are cells of a much larger organism. As Mother Earth herself delivers the new age for us we can offer or deny her the love and support she needs for the birth. The worst excesses of humanity’s estrangement from its own essence have been perpetrated against our planetary Mother who has sustained and nurtured us from age to age. She cries out to us now for a deeper commitment to her welfare over and above that to our own egoic comfort. She wants to take us with her into the new but will go on alone if we continue to prioritise our desires above her survival. She will still be here in centuries to come. Humanity’s future is less certain.

This deeply powerful Moon reaches out to each and every one with a heartfelt plea: make evolutionary change your priority, your ‘raison d’etre’. Commit to the long haul whatever it takes. Connect with Source, experience your true nature, relinquish the egoic armour grown layer upon layer as life has challenged and broken you. Forget the past, not in an act of denial but a radical commitment to healing which makes all things new, not just in part but completely. The shift of ages requires spiritual warriors, courageous lovers and those so fiercely compassionate that nothing can escape their healing embrace. And it demands of us integrity so sharp it makes us bleed and eye-watering honesty so raw we are naked before it. Only then can we change deeply enough to become the very source of evolution, its driving force not its hapless victims. Its essence, not its effluence!

I love the feel of this Black Moon, challenging though she is. She straddles ages in no (wo)man’s land, inviting us to stand in limbo beside her, no longer who and what we were and not yet who we are becoming. This is the first act of courage she demands: to embrace the darkness of the unknowable whilst standing firm and sure that the sacred will always prevail and our very essence along with it. All else, she reminds us, may become as dust, dispersed on the winds of change.

Happy Birthday Pisces!!

Happy Birthday Pisces!!

Somehow over the weekend I missed the fact that the Sun entered Pisces on Sunday!

Pisces is the most watery of the water signs, and the last of the twelve zodiac signs. Like a drop of water falling into a river that ultimately flows into the deepest ocean, Pisces seeks to merge into an experience of something greater and more divine, an experience that is beyond this world.

Like Aquarius, Pisces has two rulers which gives it’s nature a greater complexity. Neptune is known as the “modern ruler” of Pisces. Before Neptune was discovered, Jupiter ruled Pisces and is therefore called its “ancient ruler.” Jupiter expands and Neptune submerges, and the nature of Pisces is a combination of the two. Pisces is the chameleon, the shape shifter. There is incredible creativity bestowed by Pisces and other strong Neptune influences, along with a desire to fully experience the divine as we seek to dissolve the boundaries of conventional and ordinary reality. This creativity can sometimes take the form of daydreaming and an easy fall into dramas of illusion.

Pisces is a “mutable” sign, lending flexibility and adapatibility to the personality. Without the inclusion of more fiery influences in the personality, Pisces can suppress one’s physical vitality and drive. The extreme empathy of the Piscean personality offers psychic ability, but can also make it difficult to distinguish between one’s own feelings and those of others.

The ultimate quest of Pisces is to transcend the shackles of ordinary reality and experience the divine while keeping two feet firmly planted on Planet Earth. Please bear in mind that an individual’s astrological makeup is far more than their Sun sign, and that the Pisces influence is shared not only by those with a Pisces Sun but also among those with other planets in Pisces or strong Neptune connections in their chart.

Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for Thursday, Feb. 19th

Change and excitement are blended themes over the next 72 to 96 hours — although you will have to contend with two long void lunar uncertainty zones, each one lasting for around 24 hours. It is wise to write down morning dreams and visions in a special notebook as the Moon forms its monthly conjunction with Neptune in Pisces (2:49AM). You also have a capacity to size up important business matters — thanks to the development of a supportive, 60-degree alliance between Mercury and Saturn (5:07AM). Comfort and healing want to go hand-in-hand — courtesy of another 60-degree liaison between Ceres and Chiron (10:27AM). The lunar limbo-factor clocks in at 3:03PM (during a seemingly routine 60-degree rapport between the Moon in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn) as the Moon enters a void cycle that lasts until 3:14PM tomorrow. This 24+ hour lunar meandering time-period includes the powerhouse of Mars entering its own sign of fiery Aries (4:12PM today) — the red planet’s first entry into the beginning of the zodiac in approximately 2 years. Mars will be in Aries until March 31, but some of its independent flare and over-the-top zeal may be muted because this planetary-zodiacal commingling began during a void lunar cycle in watery Pisces. Feelings of deja vu and reflecting about life-after-death, reincarnation, telepathy and alternative medical therapies are par for the course as the Moon unites with Chiron (5:25PM) while Venus parallels Chiron (7:33PM). Strive to keep sound communications going with loved ones later on when Mercury in Aquarius forms a polarity to Juno in Leo (9:30PM). [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Standard Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]
