sisters memoriesSometimes I have a hard time letting go. Whether it is a many-years-old birthday card from my no-longer-here-on-Earth Mother, written in her distinctive cursive script, or a stack of yellowed Telluride Times newspapers containing some of my first and oldest astrology columns, I find it difficult to throw them in the fire or take them to the dump.

I live in the human world of form and structure, emotion, sentiment and sensation. I can see, hear, touch and feel. I have watched my physical body change over time; pounds gained and lost, a wrinkle here and there, age spots on my once model-perfect hands, my naturally blonde hair slowly morphing into white. Whatever the manifestation, I am aware that life is an ever-changing constant – nothing stays the same – and just like rafting the river, I must go with the flow.

michelangelo-creation-adam-This week we approach the end of our last lunar cycle and embark upon the last new Moon of the natural astrological year. And, as always, as we move through the last sign of the tropical zodiac, the last month of winter, we pay homage to Pisces – the alpha and Omega, the end and the beginning – and we must surrender and let go. Pisces calls upon us to transcend our three dimensional realities, drop the ego and merge with the all-pervasive oneness of spirit. It is here we can imagine and fantasize, travel through time, dream and create. Pisces takes us into transpersonal territory, far beyond logic and the limits of the rational mind. It is here that we see magnificence and experience magic, swim in the amniotic waters of the cosmos, dive into the depths of all possibility and illuminate the mysteries of heart and soul. Mysticism and quantum physics join force in this realm, nothing is solid, but rather an amorphous cloud of intention and desire, hope and faith.

Neptune, the modern planetary ruler of Pisces and the mythic God of the Sea, provides an excellent metaphor for the fluid, ethereal energy of the zodiac’s twelfth and final sign. Like a drop of water, we eternally emerge and merge, individuate and dissolve, freeze and melt, flow and evaporate. Oceans, just like emotions, are calm, stormy and everything in between, constantly changing. Feelings ebb and flow. Grief and joy come in waves. We are often lost at sea. And when the fog rolls in, we must navigate with our intuition.

guad handsAs the March 11th Pisces new Moon rolls in, take some time to relax and let go. Check your ego at the door and join the party of One. Get down on your knees, surrender and pray. Count your blessings, see the beauty in and all around you. Plant your dream seeds in the fertile embryonic soil of the cosmic womb. And then prepare for rebirth. Spring equinox is just around the corner – March 20th – but for now, take a deep breath and go with the flow. May the Force be with you.

Aries (Mar. 20-Apr.19) Take a deep breath and be sure to exhale! Letting go of the past, living vibrantly in the present and moving forward one day at a time is the only way to go. In synch with the Universe, laughter and gratitude are essential tools for good health – body, mind and spirit. The Pisces new Moon encourages spiritual wellness. Say your prayers, count your blessings.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20) As the last zodiac month of the natural years draws to a close, take a good look around you. Projects and passions abound. Seeds for flowers, gardens, herbs and ideas for making your life and environment a more beautiful, aesthetically enriching experience are everywhere. And what better person than you – the artist of earth wisdom – to do it? Yes!

Gemini (May 21-June 21) You may find yourself thinking of aspirations, goals and fairy tale dreams as Mercury retrograde and seven planets in Pisces dance in the mystical, creative magic of fantasy and imagination. Surrender to the process and see what comes. Relax in the abundance of your multi-faceted self as you recognize each talent as a gift to share. Give with patience, share with joy.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) The Pisces new Moon offers Moonchildren exceptional opportunities for profound insights, deep healing and major shifts in consciousness. Taking place in your solar 9th house of higher mind and higher self, the cosmic door opens wide for those willing to travel beyond the physical limits of conventional 3D reality. Open your mind, explore and discover.

Leo (July 23-Aug.22) The Sun and Moon come together in late Pisces this week, giving birth to the final new Moon and last lunar cycle of the celestial year. Filled with emotion and imagination, fantasy, ecstasy and dreams, this Neptunian lunation provides the Lion with the passion, seduction and desire necessary to transcend mundane reality and fly high. Pack a parachute.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep.22) Insanity and madness, divinity and ecstasy, transcendence, altered states, dreams and imagination are all Piscean realms. It is here boundaries, identities, forms and structures dissolve into One. We recognize the primordial essence of who and what we are, particles and pieces of the same cosmic stuff. Let go of delineation, discrimination and distinction. Relax.

Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22) The numinous waters of ethereal Pisces wash spirit with light and self with sensation as you feel the emotional heart of the collective soul. Wandering through the forests of past lives and present life you see the shimmer and shine of future hopes and possibilities. Intention and desire are powerful tools of manifestation. Clarify motives and purify intentions.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) Zodiac Pisces gives birth to last new Moon and final lunar month of the natural astrological year. Spring glistens on the luminescent horizon of the ever-turning seasonal wheel. Take advantage of this very fortuitous time of year and turn inward, feel your heart and soul. Buried treasure lies within, seek it. The gold of spirit is eternal and everlasting. Dig deep.

Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 20) Pisces, the 12th and final sign on the celestial wheel, represents the return to the Source. It is the rich amniotic fluid of gestation, the primal point of impending rebirth, when God and spirit are One. Tap into the boundless creative power of Mother Nature, Father Sky and the Great Spirit. You are one and the same as all Creation. Live free, let go of fear and fly high.

Capricorn (Dec. 21-Jan. 19) The Pisces zodiac month opens doors to the luminous, amorphous celestial realms of primordial essence and cosmic consciousness. As one who lives and thrives in the physical, earth-centered world of focus, action and manifestation, this energetic can feel insane. But creation is your game and you understand physics. Set intentions, plant the seeds.

Aquarius (Jan. 19-Feb. 18) Cosmos and spirit dance in the creative game of life and death, birth and rebirth. And, now, as your birthday year waxes into its second solar month, it is time to join the dance and co-create. Accepting responsibility for the condition of your life, relationships, situation and circumstances is an awesomely powerful act. Happiness is an inside job. Success is what you make it. It’s up to you.

Pisces (Feb. 18-Mar. 20)  Soul and spirit unite in the advent of this week’s Pisces new Moon. Tap into the awesome power of the celestial realms as the universe presents you with fertile cosmic soil in which to plant the seeds of your personal hopes and dreams. Examine thoughts, feel desires and identify intentions as you prepare the earth and plan the garden. Blessings and good luck.
