Dance and Play
My soul is canvas

In the moments I choose to hold the paintbrush
Beneath the light of the Primordial Moon on the eves of Autumn the cultivation of your spiritual synthesis is calling. If you’re drawn to something, follow. If you know without knowing, listen. If you sense something, pay attention. And always- question. Seek to see behind the thing. Seek to know the essence in its ever changing form. Know that the seeking is the destination.
Psycho-spiritual synthesis is called for as we navigate the waves of collective undoings and rebirth. All of the outer planets are retrograde until October when they begin to turn direct, one by one until January. The outer planets represent great cycles of humanity, civilization and evolution. When they are retrograde it is the time for internally integrating the greater cycles of life within our own being. If you have major alignments to the outer planets in your chart, then this is extra personal for you.
Sometimes we feel our lives are life metaphors for the greater reality outside of us. Sometimes we feel we are on our own journey. But the reality is, that each individual life, our choices, our joys, our losses, our mistakes, our successes and triumphs make up the story that will become Ourstory. This Full Moon is about our psychological and spiritual synthesis of ourselves in context of the greater whole.
Pisces calls us into the nether-realms. Into places undefinable, but not unknowable. It can be spaces of overwhelm, escape, fantasy or delusion. It is also where we cultivate faith in a supreme understanding of the Universe. For the kind of understanding that becomes overstanding, requires us to integrate the totality of existence.
Each thing has a place in the greater whole. There are ancient texts from cultures the world over detailing the cosmology of existence. We do not have to go it alone, blind or without help. Whether that help comes from teachers and books, the compassion of a friend or a direct channel to our ancestors, guides and Source itself. The important thing is that we seek, we see, we know and integrate.
This chart features some powerful aspects, all illuminated by the Moon conjunct Neptune, Opposite Mars. Jupiter is being trined by Mercury, soon to station retrograde on the 26th. Venus squared Saturn and Sun trined Pluto days before the Full Moon . With all of the outer planets retrograde this Full Moon may illuminate where your inner garden needs tending. What needs to be pruned? What beds are ready to be put to rest for a few seasons? How does the compost smell?
The Spiritual gardening of the Soul is a path to Self-Cultivation. Nature lives within and without us. Nature contains all of the codes and information needed for life. She contains within her the entire pharmacy, genetic fluorescence, vital life force and meaning that we may ever need. Nature, in Esoteric texts is synonymous with God/Spirit/The Eternal. No one can tell you your truth in the new Quantum Age, but the Full Moon may just reveal some of it to you in your dreams, dance or song.
Pisces seeks totality of understanding. Inherent in this understanding is its dissolution. But from it we glean truths. For it is when all else falls away, that we may see what truly is.
Truths are rarely complicated, though we may have to traverse overwhelm to reach them. They rarely confound or lack sense, though the journey may at times. Instead, truths resound within our very bones the bell of truth. They bring a settling, a comfort. How you feel truth may be unique to you. In the chart Jupiter, Neptune, the ninth and twelfth houses are a great start. Or just let this sweet moonlight show you how.
This Full Moon is sextile to Pluto in Capricorn. Delusions of where our power truly comes from are mystified and demystified. Security and control lead humans to make many of our decisions, and practically so, but this Moon asks that we expand beyond what our conception of security has been in the past. To examine what we lose through relegating our freedom to larger institutions and governments. To question if what we think brings security, actually brings long term sustainability. To question the very nature of our beliefs.
Total security and maintaining something in a constant state is not possible according to the fundamental laws of the Universe. The second law of thermodynamics is about entropy, but negentropy is the natural generative order that is equally as present. Looking to our inner and outer Cosmos helps us to form a cosmology- just as all humans have done throughout time.
We are in a great transition where it is time to question our modern cosmology, to seek the truths latent in ancient teachings in order to update and integrate them for our modern era. This is the work of Pisces- to seek an understanding and integration of natural laws into our consciousness as a scaffolding for regenerative systems of understanding that honor truths inherent in the structure of space time. From this space, we can create in harmony with all of Nature- ourselves included.
Compassion is the gift of the Piscean waters. This lunation may help you see through any anger, rage or judgement that you have been holding onto. It may bring tears. Welcome them as cleansing waters. Open your heart to a compassionate understanding of where others are coming from.
In a time of great divisiveness, we can draw on the cosmic perspective of the fishes to remind us that we are all like children, wounded and doing the best we can. It is here to remind us that togetherness and relationships are sacred and integral to humanness. See where you can open your heart to forgiveness and understanding of those you may disagree with on a philosophical level, and seek to see where you are the same. Pisces knows that to share love with others is more important than agreeing with them.
Saturn is in perfect trine with Black Moon Lilith- the scorned feminine, mother earth, feminine principle that lives within each and every one of us. The voice of the sacredness of embodiment is asking to be heard. Saturn wants us to listen with our bones. Taste it with our mouths. Sink our teeth into something meaty and substantial. New information is indicated, and secrets may be revealed this week that illuminate where we have given our power away, possibly without even realizing. The call to action is for re-assessment from within during the next three weeks of Mercury retrograde, and establishing our new inner authority.
We are invited to integrate our inner synthesis with our daily rituals, practices and choices. Meditation and reflection are the places we come to higher realizations. Be it on the trail, over the stove, in the garden, on the dance floor. Entering states of flow where we receive inspiration are highly auspicious under a Pisces Full Moon. It is said that flow is the space between discipline and surrender. May you enter freely.
Blessings and Flow,
