Last week’s New Moon in Pisces conjunct Neptune plus Mercury turning Retrograde, shook up the status quo and shifted gears into reverse.
Moving forward in a big way, with anything important, is highly frowned upon now. Making big decisions is not advised; pushing forward anyone or anything not ready to be pushed is highly discouraged.
You already know that Mercury Retrograde can be like a “trickster”, playing with your mind. Everything is not as it appears to be, just as “magicians” fool us with their magic tricks or cards.
Pisces is often less clear than other signs, as it seeks to take one into other frequencies; into our imagination; into intangible realities; into escapism; into foggy soul shamanic journeys; ; through signs and symbols from hazy dreams; through magical adventures that seem so surreal.
And as the New Moon in Pisces last week came on the heels of Mercury turning Retrograde, we have been brought into another realm of consciousness whether we acknowledge that fact or not.
Added onto these planetary movements is the fact that “god of the ocean” Neptune was closely conjunct that Pisces New Moon. Neptune is the ruling planet of Pisces, and as such is the gate-keeper into soul realms that cannot be controlled by logic or rules.
All in All, some will feel like they are in the Twilight Zone, an alternative spiritual reality not measurable by scientific technique.
It is a mystic world that can only be truly appreciated through surrender, the kind of surrender of mind and ego that opens the doorway into deep meditation, dream filled sleep, or psychedelic journeying.
Of course we also have to walk through “real” life in order to go to work, pay bills, take care of kids, etc.
But we can find time to meditate, and we can shift our usual focus in order to let in energies and viewpoints from this deep soul world.
You can make intentions now, connected with Universe and Higher Self, and then let go and patiently watch inside you, around you, and in dreams for signs, symbols and synchronicities that show you a path connected to those intentions.
It can also be a good time now for positive visualization, for co-creating with Source (Universe) for what is coming to you, for what is in alignment with your Soul’s desires and destiny.
Portals can open now into new inner vistas of exploration for you; for needed healings; for how to actualize your Higher Self’s intentions and dreams; for moving more fully and gracefully into a New Chapter of your life; for knowing more about the deeper level of our relationships; for knowing the unity and connections all around us; for deeper insights into any of our life’s endeavors or challenges.
But getting bottom line answers or conclusions may have to wait for the process to entirely unfold, bit by bit.
And April 5 can be used as a somewhat flexible marking point for finding direction and being ready to move forward. After that energies are for action and new starts and straight forward truths.
There is a New Moon in action-oriented Aries then, but even then there are restrictive energies to face as both Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn make a difficult square to that New Moon in Aries.
Answers will be more readily available and direction more discernible, but smooth sailing not likely. There will be obstacles to contend with, challenges to be met.
Coming back to this week, we are entering the 2nd quarter of the waxing half of the Pisces lunar cycle on the 14th- with the Moon in Gemini.
This is most definitely a time when information can come in big waves, waves that may feel overwhelming at times, and perhaps confusing.
Just look at the media now- very few media hubs are searching for truth. Instead they are all too often trying to sell or communicate an agenda. Fox and MSNBC are on opposite sides of the TV news fence, and neither can be relied upon to just objectively provide facts in the search for truth.
And there are so many sources of news and opinions, most often coming up with fake or exaggerated news.
We each now need to develop our own inner connection to truth, our truth, but also an objective inner fact-finder to capture the truth.
So many sources are trying to program our minds to think a certain way, to buy a certain thing, to vote a certain way.
It is so important now to know Who you are, to accept Who you are, to be True to that Self, to deeply honor yourSelf. The lower your self esteem and the more you dislike yourself; then the more susceptible you are to be programmed, to drink someone else’s kool-aid agenda, to be taken advantage of, to do things you would not do if you were in your integrity of being.
The sheep are always herded into being programmed. You may be a knee jerk liberal or conservative, who does not truly think for themselves, but instead automatically thinks like everyone else in the group or party. You do not even know you have been programmed to think and vote a certain way.
So take off the uniform and think for yourself.
Carl Jung said that something like one tenth of one percent of people are truly self actualized. The rest are Sheep being herded by governments, corporations, families, religions, etc.
“Of the people, by the people and for the people” can only be truly manifested in this world if we are mainly populated by free minds and hearts that are each part of a self actualized person.
The Diversity within Unity paradigm of the Age of Aquarius can only work if there is a plethora of humans who are self actualized and individualized.
The day before the 2nd quarter Moon in Gemini, on the 13th, we get Sun square Jupiter and Sun sextile Pluto aspects.
All in all energies will be intensifying then, but keep in mind that Mercury is still Retrograde and the Sun is still in “go with the flow” Pisces.
Keep mentally discipline so you do not get swept up into anything or jump to conclusions or do anything impulsively.
Keep letting the process unfold and keep looking for signs, symbols and synchronicities. Let the truth unfold as the river flows.
And yes out in the world all is still messy. Trump had a horrific week as talks with North Korea went nowhere, the stock market went downward, and old friends and business buddies went to jail.
Pakistan and India calmed down their rage for one another, but trust me when I tell you that the Middle East is going to erupt. Israel and Iran and Palestine and Syria are getting ready for conflict.
Starting in April and through October, it is very likely that major war will erupt somewhere during that time,and the USA will get involved. And the economy will be severely challenged then also. And both Trump and Netanyahu will be in deep trouble legally and politically.
But as this darkness gets stronger and stronger, the force of the Light will be increasing as much or more. Do releasing and purging in the dark, but also widely open your mind and heart for the Light. Let it pour through into your chakra system.
Do not let the fear from the dark take over. So many people are awakening, so many young people are strong and determined to be a part of the transformation into an Age of Aquarius.
The good-old boys networks of privilege are coming to an end. Avenues inside everyone will be open and letting in the truth and love that are changing the world.
Don’t get wrapped up into how it will happen logically. Let that go and instead feel the depth of change moving through us. It will happen if we allow the old blocks in our system to break down. The old programming needs to be released.
Lay down and spread your legs and arms as far apart as possible. And then feel how surrendered you are getting- surrendered only to the Universe and the light ,love and truth pushing up against our blocks. Let it all in as best you can. It is time now to fill ourselves up with love and truth, so when the energies shift for action we will be ready.
