It is by going down into the abyss that we recover the treasures of life. Where you stumble, there lies your treasure.
Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls.
This week’s Pisces full Moon mixes the watery energies of the collective unconscious with our Virgo (Sun) self-knowledge. Coming after the Leo new Moon, this full moon energy can make us aware of how committed we are to ‘following our bliss’ as well as how our bliss can serve our collective needs. Don’t forget, we are (and will continue to be for many years) in the energetic vortex of the Uranus in Aries square to Pluto in Capricorn. The patriarchy is dying, but it’s not ‘going gently into the night’. The Cosmic Story is telling us that it’s up to each of us to first let our allegiance to patriarchy die within us. When we step outside our patriarchal conditioning, we begin the quest for our bliss, our Holy Grail; we step into an unknown future. We create it. And if you’re reading this, you’re one of the people committed to creating a new world.
On August 16th, we celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Harmonic Convergence of August 16, 1987, which was my first awakening to the significance of 2012. At the time, the 25-year time-frame seemed far away, but suddenly, here we are. 2012: a time of endings and beginnings. The inner work we’ve done to become more self-aware these past 25 years wants to bear fruit now. 2012 doesn’t signify the literal end of the world. It signifies an inner shift, the death of our patriarchal conditioning as well as a soul-healing that redeems our karmic debt. It’s time to accept the experiences that shaped us, and see them as lessons we had to confront on our self-chosen Hero/ine’s Journey. What have we learned??? Now let go of the past. We have befriended our dragons, haven’t we? It’s time to bring back the treasure and the story to our sisters and brothers so they can begin their own journeys.
Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac, the sign that symbolizes a return to Source, the collective unconscious. If you know a Pisces, you understand that this is not as wildly exciting as it sounds! These collective energies can reinvigorate us or they can dissolve our sense of self. Creation and destruction are the foundational laws of our universe. We have to be prepared to encounter either or both states when we enter Pisces’ watery realms. The best way to navigate the energies of a Pisces Moon is to understand that feelings want to move like water, so remember all the different ways that water and emotions move: a river’s swift current, the power of ocean waves, the force of a waterfall, the calm stillness of a breezeless day, or the mysterious depths of a natural spring. Observe your feelings; see how your emotional state flows or is blocked during the full Moon.
Then ask yourself – if I’m feeling this way, how is everyone else doing? With the Moon in Pisces, we are part of the experience of the collective’s feelings. If some of us know how to navigate these waters and channel them within ourselves, we can affect the whole emotional temperature of our times. This is so important since I keep hearing that the West is set to go to war again. Do we really want WWIII? This is our moment to re-channel the collective unconscious towards peaceful, transformative healing archetypal energies, energies we must be willing to embody and manifest in the world.
