New Moon in Pisces:
A Song in Our Heart
March 1, 2014
When I sit at my desk to compose the New or Full Moon Report, I often find it difficult to write it until the new or full moon is actually happening, which is why I often post very close to the day of the cycle. If I try to calculate the energy from a cerebral place by examining the chart before hand, or summoning the energies of the Sabian Symbol alone, something intimate goes missing for me. Most likely it’s the dynamic of feeling and body wisdom, and the mood of the moon cycle that inspires me.
I sat down many times with the intention of writing the New Moon Report, but to no avail. My head is somewhat fuzzy as the double sun/moon Piscean influences cross through my natal 12th house. With Aries rising, I find the Pisces moon to be a contemplative time of the month. As I sit here, I wish I could transport my thoughts telepathically, in a poem, maybe a painting, or perhaps a dream, because my attempt at writing seems to vaporize into a cloud of distraction.
That being said…let me try to get to the nitty gritty of this New Moon. It’s an important one for all of us…so let me share some thoughts.
The New Moon, at 11 degrees Pisces, is located between Chiron and Neptune and the vision I have is one of pure beauty and illumined compassion. Neptune, the harbinger of ineffable treasures, and Chiron, the wounded, yet heavenly artist of the soul, embraces the essence of this Pisces moon. This watery and dreamy moon yearns to be awakened by the blazing light of the sun. I have a humorous image of the moon shyly leaning in on the shoulder of the sun, sharing its light with humble acceptance.
You see, the Pisces moon is a monk, and in union with the sun, it must awaken to it’s potential to heal and serve outwardly; it’s truest calling. I feel the light of this moon is shining deeply into the core, of humanity, provoking questions that may encourage radical insights.
As planet Mercury moves direct, and the planet Mars positions into a retrograde journey until May 18th, we’ll explore the depths of Justice as it relates to war, selfishness, and negative patterns. How have these traits triggered self-degradation, justifications, blame, judgment, and self-annihilation? Deep feelings may come to light in the next two weeks, and we may ask ourselves, “What in my heart, what in my soul, will carry me forward?” “How may I meet the suffering of the world, and the suffering of my own life, with compassion and courage?” The Will of Humanity and the Truth of the Individual is at stake.
Mars is conjunct the north node of the New Moon chart in Libra, urging us forward toward future resolution regarding self-destruction and global crisis.
Today I awoke with a song in my heart; a song that recited the word, Hara, Hara, Hara, over and over again. I shared my waking experience with a good friend who then reminded me that ‘Hara’ means, ‘a Sea of Energy,’ in Taoist teachings. The word “Hara” runs deep in ancient cultures including Japan, India, and China. It symbolizes the root, sacred life, the seed of all living beings, and the core of divinity. The beauty of its essence is simple…it is the flow of life.
I’m sharing this because it feels right. The luminous moon of Pisces speaks to us in song, dream, and vision. Listen to your visions today, and focus on the gentle, yet fiercely passionate mood of the times. We are warriors of the heart, and our mission is now.
Passion Flower essence is recommended for the energies of the New Moon in Pisces.
Passion Flower essence helps us understand the deepest possible meaning of our own personal suffering, after which it assists in the ascent to our truest calling of service on the planet. It seeks to purify the kundalini forces which coil upward around the spine, strengthening one’s connection to selfless service and unconditional love, as well as drawing one closer to angelic messengers and galactic star patterns. Passion Flower remedy draws one close to the force of forgiveness and sets one free from the feeling of condemnation or a feeling of having been “crucified’ in this life, or, a past life.
