The daily lights, calculated from real time at sunrise on the Pacific coast, for Friday 16 March 2018
The moon ghosts through Aquarius as it sinks toward renewal. As the sun splashes ahead in Pisces and the moon lags in Aquarius, our minds may flood with strong intense emotional charge on particular issues. We may be almost overwhelmed by our own intensity on subjects and pathways that we already entertain, but at a more reasonable level. Let's not get caught up in impulse, but carefully ponder the fact the fact that we are experiencing fourth dimensional duality within ourselves.
The moon will frolic in the warm waters of Pisces, invisible and refreshed, at 2 40 AM Pacific time Saturday, 5 40 AM eastern time.
This is the fifth Friday in Lent, filled with light, insightful and inspiring!!
By 6 46 AM Pacific, 9 46 AM eastern, we are inspired to reach beyond our imagination! We can get there! Our mood is marvelous and magick is in the air!
An enchanted day!!
By 7 09 PM Pacific, 10 09 PM eastern, we have mulled over something said by a colleague, and gained a vital insight!
Those of us who rise for midnight prayer on the west coast will be blessed with a miraculous sense of great company now!
This weekend is one for the books! The moon will come new at 6 12 AM on St. Patricks Day, Saturday the 17 th, in Pisces! We are wise indeed to set aside a bit of time in the morning to celebrate the concepts of renewal, regeneration, rising again, resurgence, life new and independent and full of joy! With the moon in Pisces we are at our most heroic, dramatic, individual, and changeable. It is in this sign that we can individuate our redemption, or lose it forever. Special care must be taken of the feet and toes, as these are at their most vulnerable now. Recall, 'touch not with iron those parts of the body resided by the moon.' You won't die if you get toe fungus now, but you won't heal as rapidly and recover as fully, either.
The spring equinox occurs at 9 15 AM Pacific time on Tuesday the 20 th. Heaven will go on vacation in the magickal sign as the orb of communication turns retrograde at 5 19 PM Pacific time on Thursday, the 22 nd, to tour Pisces all over again. A great time to resort our feelings, and investigate Art, art, crafts, colors, textures, mysteries! What a great spring!
Many devout Christians take this 40 day period of Lent to review the passion of the Christ, and to sacrifice some worldly pursuits for spiritual strength and purification. Like works, this won't get us to perfection, but it puts earthly life in perspective.
Let's March forward, Star Travelers, spring is sprung and it's a brand new day!!!
Talk about shaking off the blues!
Our orb of communicating ideas pops into kindly, good natured Pisces, and we find enchantment in our own words. We wax lyrical and rhythmic even while on the phone. We can hear music in every little sound!!
The phantom moon Vulcan tickles our who identity concept now.
Get ready for a whole new outlook!!
Venus, the golden girl of the cosmos, glimmers like the star she is in Pisces, where she reigns the exalted and lovely empress of the heavens. Our social life gleams alike! Romance, quick cash and ready money, friendships are all blessed under her aegis!!
Fidgety Mars exits Scorpio, lurking on the 29th karmic degree till Friday. Let's be very careful of our birth control, and all activities that involve recreation.
‚ÄčMars takes flight in Sagittarius on the 9th of March, and spring will really spring! Mars in the restless sign of the traveler means we are on the move!
Mighty, benevolent Jupiter, now backtracking in Libra, sends us into the arms of old friends and ancient fads. Be prepared for retro big time!! This is a great time to indulge in shabby chic, engage in inane entertainments just for the relaxation. Sometimes we have to be silly in order to appreciate the elegant, refined, sweetly harmonious and charming. What a year we have ahead!
Maybe this isn't the time to go back to school...
Saturn is making a straight shot through Sagittarius, stalling our travel plans and putting a damper on our school credits. The dour schoolteacher of the cosmos, at his best, can steady all the wild sky horses with sober calm, turning their tricks into reigns to guide our own inner drives with a more mature hand. We have the next couple of years to study the laws by which we live and measure them against the Laws by which we really live. If there is a discrepancy, now is the time to address such issues. Schooling and study itself will come under scrutiny and some fire. Test the tester!! We will find travel restrictions are nothing new and hard as iron now, and we need to seriously consider the need for borders. Saturn is all about form, walls, and watching.
All the fuss is about just that, fuss.
Uranus, the cosmic hand grenade, blasts through Aries on the 0 degree, all or nothing at all. Our sudden impulses and tracks seem so intense!! As spring launches itself upon us, he will explode through the Spring Lamb like a soccer match on steroids. Sports, military maneuvers, policing issues and leadership opportunities seem to materialize out of the air, and demand immediate action. Let's be ready to think on our feet, Star Travelers! This can be a fun time full of exploration, innovation, experimentation.
Fussy and fuzzy too!
Neptune, orb of inspiration and music, bouys in Aquarius, the sign of ideas, brotherhood, idealism, and innovation. We wisely recognize that this is of another world, of art, sensational music, beauty of a spiritual nature.
Pluto, the fateful, fitful energy orb which can open our eyes to what is really there in front of us cruises in the sign of true blue Sagittarius. Our core beliefs about religion, the law, The Law, education, and foreign affairs will be challenged, turned upside down and inside out, and we are wise to move through slowly to examine our own innards to see what is really going on there. Sagittarius is the great Truth Seeker. Let's not disappoint Him! With courage, dignity, and grace, we can refine and now redefine who and what we are, in our inner reality. As Pluto next visits the sign of government, dads everywhere, the corporate culture, we can emerge much more sure of ourselves and our beliefs and principles by engaging with Fate now!
Pluto will engage with the sun and with Venus on the 9 th of January 2018 in a powerful embrace which is bound to change feelings, values, and core beliefs, bringing to the surface all that is rotten and obstructive to be lanced, cleansed, purified, and healed. This may be a painful process but not likely violent, especially if we do not fight it, but go with the tides of heaven.
Jupiter is retrograde till July, awakening old memories and reconnecting us with old times.
Mercury swims back up the Pisces stream from March 22nd till tax day, April 15th. We can take this time to review all our old feelings, peruse old journals and art books, pour over our childhood prayerbooks. A charming season!
The planette which keeps watch on the home fires, Vesta, fires in Scorpio!! Whew! And I don't just mean soup!
Our spousal planette Juno bops through platonic Aquarius, full of cool connections. Juno is almost never happy when alone, or when committed.
can be fixed if we want to take the time to go back and work on our inner emotional issues. With the planette Chiron, our Wounded Healer, retrograde in Pisces now, real success is possible when using color, theater, drama, or past life therapy.
Our social interchange
Pallas, the planettary BFF and sister in arms, jumps the hoop in Aries big time! She uses this as a launch pad for making new friends and annoying old ones.
The planette Ceres, the cook of the solar system, resets everything at Home in Cancer, where she reconfigures, revitalizes, revisualizes, and revamps our kitchen, redecorates, and invites the whole neighborhood to her board.
This marks the third complete lunation for this year.
Spring is Just Around the Corner!!!
Happy Birthday Pisces!!!!!
The third month of the year signals the spring equinox, when the winter stars recede and the skies bask in more daylight! The spring sun glitters in the heavens like a diamond in the joyous sign of Pisces, the Enchanted Fishes, sign of mystery, magick, and even more!
Aquarius and Pisces both have intense energies of The Magdalene.
The names of the stars in the sign Pisces itself include Quickly Returning, The Redeemer, The Shepherd, Uniting,
The intriguing constellation consists of two fish, one upright facing northward and the other, parallel ling the path of the sun, sports a crown or circlet of stars above its head. They are joined together by one shimmering band, linking them loosely. We immediately think of those two species ever at odds, Spirit and Soul, joined together by the silver cord of the body during life. How often does our spirit long to leap free into the sparkling air while our soul soars down into the purple deep, with only our body holding us in place?
This fish tale is our story, the fish and the fishers of men! We can fight our way upstream or go with the flow, it's all in our own power to choose.
This band which nets the Fishes together hosts the brightest stars of the whole constellation as a knot. It loops around the fish tails, (or tales!!) around the neck of the great Whale Cetus and under the outstretched arm of the Lamb.
The Pisces sun enlivens within us real empathy, sustaining compassion, and emotional alchemy. While in Pisces, the sun is at it's most imaginative height, the peak of the creative process, filled with generosity, thoughtful, and kind! Dreamy, romantic, loving
On Holy Thursday we recall the anointing of feet of Christ by the woman with the alabaster jar, the institution of the Eucharist as the communal meal, at the Last Supper, and the betrayal of the Lord. How Piscean that Jesus washed the feet of His own
It is hard to miss the connection between Mary of Magdalene, Venus, and Pisces. Mary is surely the woman with the alabaster jar who anointed Jesus the Christ for His death at the close of the Last Supper. She later is the One who found he tomb empty, becoming the Apostle of the Apostles. If we are very Wise, we will imitate the behavior of the transcendent Mary of the High Tower and give our utmost for others best!
Some of the Wisest on earth consider us to be in the Age of Aquarius, while others point to the helical rising of the actual sign at the vernal equinox of 2597 A.D.. Since we feel the effects of every cusp event beginning at the 10 degree approach, and need not wait for culmination, we are right either way!
Judging the character by the names of the stars in the sign, we are most concerned with Uniting, Upholding, and The Multitude This is the sign you find most often representing any show business, managerial, or royal industry.
From now through the 25 th of March the sunrise is bound by The Bands (of the Fishes). These stars have several modern names, including The Lizard, but anciently they were seen to be the bridle which bound together two fish going in opposite directions. The individual names for these stars include The Bridle, The Bands, Binding Who Comes. Those people and relationships born under these stars are artistic, scientific, inventive, unpredictable, with marked spiritual tendencies
The wise and prudent will consider her actions and issues through this lens.
The Christian Aquarius knight on quest for the True Cross, the Great Work, or the Holy Grail. The Christian Aquarius knight is out traversing the worlds, rescuing, slaying monsters, banishing evildoers, and salvaging treasures. As an Aquarius, this knight quests continually on every level until he brings heaven and earth together again in harmony, brotherhood, tolerance, and freedom. Called the Big Brother, this optimistic, honest, and independent knight is inventive, enthusiastic, and original in all his pursuits and endeavors. His charm can be felt over his abruptness.
Judging the character by the names of the stars in the sign, the Aquarius knight notes The Record of the Pouring Out; Who Goes and Returns, and what issues from The Flowing Stream.
The spiritual light of Aquarius is subtle violet, that same shade found at the top of the skull, as a crown of glowing violet soul light. Violet energy rays, like Aquarius, are unifying, harnessing people and events for altruistic and universally beneficial purpose.
Under the violet light of Aquarius, we are able to accept our connection, and to realize the hard and unbending truth that what we do to one another, we do to ourselves. In rending another person we expose what we are within.
By intentionally spiritualizing our own minds and daily lives, we can begin to use the creative and inventive violet energy rays to promote healing and continuity. We can consciously bring to the fore undiscovered truths. We can unite people to further humanitarian and environmental causes. We can demonstrate the oneness of the whole and wholeness in the one.
Violet is a serene, calm and vibrant color long known to be spiritually activating and awakening. It was anciently used to aid insomnia, headaches and eczema. The flowers which bloom now have strong anti-bacterial properties, ideal for skin rashes or burns.
Foods include valerian and vervain for extra rest; eggplant, plums, kale, broccoli and purple grapes.
Amethyst and Clear Quartz crystals vibrate at much higher frequencies, opening us to the eternal, the heavenlies, our own higher selves and the Life source of the universe.
