REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN FOR MY 2016 SUMMER RETREAT, BACK TO MT SHASTA, AUGUST 22-28, 2016. CLICK HERE FOR ALL THE DETAILS!
There’s an interesting day ahead. The Pisces Moon goes void at 6:34am EDT after a a resourceful sextile to Pluto, and remains void for the rest of the day. The void Pisces Moon is like a final blast of total suspension in the limitless realm of potential, while inside the void Venus leaves Pisces and crosses the world axis into Aries. For about six hours there are five planets in Aries, until a little after 7pm EDT when Mercury leaves Aries to enter Taurus. That’s a lot of personal shifting today, again, inside the limitless realm of potential, and all of this change sets us up for the next huge chapter of our odyssey.
The Moon will move into Aries tomorrow morning at 2:47am EDT, and we will officially be in the dark of the Moon, on the event horizon that is the end of this life altering worm hole we’ve just been through. The void Pisces Moon delivers us to the dark of the Aries Moon as we cross the birth canal into our new lives.
In between the Venus and Mercury ingresses (sign changes), we have a powerful Sun Saturn manifestation (trine). This serves to help give structure and meaning to the entire eclipse passage we’ve experienced. Saturn has just gone retrograde and is only now beginning to move after a bunch of days sitting in his station. Saturn is also fresh off a stepping stone with Jupiter, and both are within range of the square all the way to their third and final stepping stone in late May.
Saturn is also making his way toward an all important conjunction (new cycle) with Mars, which won’t actually come together till late August, but will be forming and building all through the next two seasons. This speaks pretty directly to the physical transformation/transmutation of the planet, and that of course is the reflection of the same process that each of us is about to undergo physically.
Further, Mercury’s entry into Taurus today marks the very beginning of his next retrograde cycle. He won’t go retrograde until April 29th, and he won’t even enter his retrograde shadow until April 15th, but he is scheduled to stay in the Taurus mansion of our consciousness for the next two months or so, and so he is here for the long haul.
There is a kind of a baton hand off with Venus taking place, as Venus become the new dispositor of Mercury when he enters Taurus, and Venus moves into Aries before Mercury leaves that sign. It’s subtle, but Mercury remains in the throes of the Aries vibration for as long as Venus remains there (fascinatingly, until April 29, when Mercury goes retrograde). YOU CAN’T MAKE THIS STUFF UP.
Aries is Mars’ sign, and Mars will be retrograde by April 17. The rest of the year is dominated, at the lower body level, by the transmutation of the physical body/world, and everything in the cosmos is related to this process.
This day feels like an in breath, with the void Pisces Moon an all day affair. It is the preparation for a long haul of inner shifting. When we take a nice deep breath in, we infuse our Selves with all the potential of what is to come. If we take it to heart, instead of going mental, it makes it possible to Know just what to do in the here and now. Mercury’s ingress into the sign of the heart should help, and it seems crystal clear that the upcoming Mercury retrograde cycle will be of great value along those Love with the Mind lines.
“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
