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.

Fact Vs. Fiction: Full Moon in Virgo, February 19th, 2019

February 15, 2019

Every Full Moon is an exchange between the masculine Sun and the feminine Moon, illuminating the sky and shining a light on certain subjects. This particular illumination is at a 0 degree, suggesting this is both a new beginning (zero) and a completion. This matchup on the Virgo Pisces axis is a reflection of the balance between tending to our responsibilities while being sure we aren’t taking on more than we can manage. A major epiphany may surface that you are taking on the energy or responsibility of those around you. This may be both physically ...

Understanding Ceremony & Creating Your Own Ritual

February 02, 2019

There are a few things you should consider before starting your ritual. How does the ritual fulfill your intentions? How does it aid in discovering your intentions? Magic, especially modern magic, tends to be unifying rather than dualistic. The goal is to unify the higher (mind/divine) and lower (physical/experiential). Magicians do this by making things happen through uniting themselves with the universe at-large, by spell-casting (magic) and/or being mindful (mysticism). Lastly, it is crucial to record every step in a journal along with all external factors that affect you and the operation. This is one of the only ways to observe and adjust your practice as you develop.

Freedom & Forward Thinking: New Moon in Aquarius, February 4 2019

February 02, 2019

Aquarius seeks freedom and awakening and pulls us into future versions of ourselves. Another important aspect of Aquarius is its concern with the collective consciousness and communal thinking. Although its often tech savvy ways cannot be ignored as many prominent entrepreneurs also have this as a Sun or Moon sign. The air sign connects us to energies of originality, eccentricity, freedom, radical expression, and epiphanies of all sorts. It concerns us with the realm of humanity, community and invites us to ponder our place within the whole.
