Hey, hey, hey Moonbabies….
Many technical delays have been happening in my world – thank you Mercury retrograde!
Nevertheless, I am called to share with you, even if it is after the fact.
The Full Moon in Pisces was exact today at 12:05 pm PDT, and the lunar eclipse was exact at 11:54 am PDT (24 degrees Pisces).
Full Moons are always intensifying, and when a lunar eclipse happens simultaneously (about twice a year), we have the opportunity to ride the waves of transformation with awareness and willingness. We might even feel like we simply have no other choice: it is time to surrender.
The message Spirit has given me with this Moon is to stop, slow down and listen. Talk less. Listen and receive. There is no need to spin any webs of fantasy, expectation or projection. Notice what is. Notice the likes and dislikes. Notice the attractions and aversions. Notice.
The quality and texture of our senses are valid and important and make up the truth of our current experience. Inner knowing, gut feeling, intuition, dreams, emotions and physical response are all sacred. All ways of knowing ourselves.
Pisces, the sign of mutable water, is all about feeling and intuition. She is the ultimate empath. She presides over dreams and subconscious desires. As the universal ruler of the 12th house, she leads us through the passage of mystical transformation. She is represented in her glyph as two fish swimming in opposite directions, much like a Yin/Yang symbol.
Pisces rules one of the twelve houses in your natal chart, and with an eclipse (lunar or solar), it is especially helpful to know where the full Moon or new Moon is happening for you personally.
For me, Pisces rules my 10th house of career, where my natal Moon dwells. All I’m gonna say is — YUP! I am experiencing major and transformative growth and change in my career. It’s exciting – and I’m not striving and pushing and reaching for it. The Universe is handing it to me like a beautiful baton – and every time I drop the baton or shy away from it, the Universe places it back firmly in my hand.
The Moon is the emotional self, the inner wisdom and our feminine nature (for both men and women). The natal Moon speaks to your emotional needs, where you feel safe and where you are deeply connected to Source energy.
May you honor your natal Moon daily and nightly, not just with the full Moon or new Moon calling your awareness.
One of my great teachers often tells us to “Pause and feel….” after chanting a mantra together.
May we do this pausing and this feeling. This listening. This noticing.
Something very magical is happening underneath all the chatter of the mind.
Beyond the pressure of expectations and the bombardment of stimulation – we begin to notice our true nature.
May you know yourself as one with Great Spirit.
