I find myself seated in the woods, in the forest of this place. The wind, the birds, the sounds of nature surround us …peace… peace.
Astrologically this moon is very straightforward: the New Moon in Pisces = the sacred human being – two fishes: one swims up, ones swims down. this is the above and the below, how they mirror one another. This is your higher nature and your lower. They are bound to one another! The fishes are specifically associated with hands and feet: touching one another, our connection to the world around us too.
The Sacred Human being: vulnerability, frailty, endings that imply new beginnings.
Also, this New Moon is conjunct Chiron (the wounded healer), this character who shows us where & how we compensate to distance ourselves from that which is uncomfortable, from that which hurts us. Obviously this implies discernment – what is our growing edge, what is wise to keep back from, what are we asked to move through despite our discomfort? Perennial questions for the Human Being!
I can go through the astrology to assure you that we are right where we are expected to be. And while I will, it feels a little like talking about the fact that flowers bloom when the sun is shining, the days are warm and the light mingles with the elements in the soil: the water, the minerals to feed these plants and then they bloom. Just as that is self-evident, the astrology feels obvious too. I’ll want to also look to the wisdom of the stars around us to offer information, guidance, perspective now to meet this very appropriate place within which we find ourselves.
This is a time of great delicacy; great self compassion and self awareness. These conditions strip away the veils of illusion about our identity: who we think we are, who we hope we can be, who the world has asked us to be, our jobs, our roles, our hats etc.. This can be triggering for all of the obvious psychological reasons… (and push us into a spiral of self hatred and criticism within this self improvement optimization culture. Processing our disappointment.) Yet the stars pointed my focus to the other side of the scale where this stripping down of our identities reveal the truth of humanity’s frailty and unity. All human beings yearn for love and connection, acceptance and pleasure~ air, water, food, and shelter. The stars show me that this is a time of great equalization and revelation as us as one huge family. We are strengthening and initiating Bonds of connection; this is good.
The stars see this as a great cleansing of ego. An opportunity to return to the promise of your soul that you may have forgotten under the many layers of your modern life. And the stars show me what gentleness [is required within that] remembering to treat yourself like a naked newborn who needs no judgments but instead support and curiosity as you lean in to discover this newborn soul.
