FANTASY & FLOW

 FULL MOON @ 4 DEGREES PISCES

Sunday, August 26, 2018 @ 4:56 a.m. PDT/7:56 a.m. EDT/11:56 a.m. UTC

  • Sextile Uranus
  • Sextile Saturn

Keywords & Themes: Fantasy, projection, illusion, dream-like, intuition, flow states, dazed & confused, spirituality, magic, lost at sea, spiritual bypassing, martyr

 

Collective Energies:

As the last sign in the zodiac, Pisces is considered an amalgamation of all of the signs. It beckons us into the places where we feel connected to the whole or a unity consciousness. Ultimately it invites ways of experiencing flow and universal love. Pisces takes us to the heights and the desire to connect with the divine, though its shadow side often reveals itself through projections, fantasy, or disassociation. For this reason, those with strong Pisces or Neptune in their chart often struggle to discern reality or can be prone to addictions as a way of escaping feelings.

With the moon in Pisces the emotional realm can become overly empathetic or a little lost at sea. While it connects us to unconditional love and the spirit realm, it also can lose sight of shore. The highly sensitive element of Pisces invites us to be gentle with ourselves and others as we may notice waves of emotion without warning. However, my least favorite tendency of Pisces moon can be to spiritually bypass feelings or disassociate to avoid them. Remember we must navigate the messiness of being human before we can fully own our divinity, though Pisces may sometimes tell us otherwise.

This full moon sextiles Uranus and Saturn as archetypes of traditional and non-traditional ways of being in the world. We can most likely expect to notice the two sides of us that often feel polarized, may begin to harmonize. The tight Pluto and Venus square also occurs the day of the full moon, perhaps creating relational intensity or a new depth in connection. This combo can make relating difficult or can evoke intimacy through vulnerability.

Pay attention to places where there may be illusions that want to be shed as well as honoring the emotional and physical sensitivity Pisces brings up. Soak in the unconditional love of yourself and others while staying rooted on Earth. The best ways to harness the energies of this full moon would be time in nature or meditation, though it may want us to disassociate in substance, drinking, or watching too much Netflix.

 

Everyday Rituals:

// DO // Focus on cultivating flow states with meditation, yoga, dancing, painting, or photography. Use a crystal like carnelian or labradorite to enhance creative and meditative energies. Be sure to stay grounded, though, as the Pisces moon can set one mentally and emotionally adrift. Black tourmaline is an excellent grounding stone.

// BE // Pay attention to your dream life as Pisces can create a bridge to the emotional subconscious.

// EAT // Stay hydrated, or focus on foods such as vegetables and fruits.

// WEAR // Colors such as blue, silver, or white to soothe and connect to water.

MYSTICAL METAMORPHOSIS: New Moon in Scorpio, November 7, 2018

November 05, 2018

This year’s Scorpio New Moon reminds us of the full spectrum of experience inherent with this mystical sign. It invites the metamorphosis of our personal and collective lives while reminding us of the current intensity and turbulent times. No sign in the zodiac seems more misunderstood than Scorpio’s desire to shed or transform in the service of the unseen, powerful evolutionary force. Though before we come into contact or surrender to this process, we often experience the other shadow elements of Scorpio such as manipulation, power, secrets, or shame.

The month kicks off with Uranus’s retrograde back into the headstrong sign of Aries on the 6th. Suddenly aspects of yourself you’ve been working on for the past two years come to a head. People are apt to be reactionary when it comes to personal needs. Tensions will rise as as the nodes of the moon move into a cardinal square  with Uranus. The new nodal placements of Capricorn (south node) and Cancer (north node) signify and new change in our lives for the next year and a half collectively. We are being asked to move into a space of healing and nurturing. Slowly we will begin to bring better attention to our home and family units.

An Introduction to Magic[k] and Alternative Belief Systems
An Introduction to Magic[k] and Alternative Belief Systems

October 22, 2018

Magic. We all know what it is. But when asked to define it, it can be a bit tricky to give it a good definition. So let's start with the basics. All types of magic have two parts: the belief part and the practical part. If you didn't believe magic was real, then why practice it at all? If you don't use magic for anything, why believe in it? It is worth noting up front that the magic this article talks about is also sometimes spelled "magick." This is mostly to distinguish it from the kind of magic with card tricks and rabbits being pulled out of hats. Another reason some spell it this way is because they use the "k" at the end to stand for "kteis." Kteis is a Greek word representing the passive or reproductive powers of nature. In this sense, magick is balanced against the oppressive aspects of more dogmatic religious traditions that seek to regulate individual behavior and enforce social norms.
