Between two worlds, through curious synchronicities, we find opportunities to develop our perception, seek alternate routes, and manage solutions. Reflections and memories from the universe. The world of spirit, promise, creation and imagination, and the world of matter. Where do they meet? What we wish for and the sensitivity to life itself. The need to turn our attention, but also to return to a broader understanding of things. Revelations. How can we help or inspire others through our beliefs and values.
This New Moon is about how we help, our faith and our ideals. It is time to respond to everything that inspires us, to become aware of our sensitivities and vulnerabilities in life, and to explore the great picture. It is about the glamour and the illusion of things, as well as an opportunity to set boundaries and seek clarity to all that escapes us. To give space to the creative and spiritual content of our lives and to commit ourselves to our dreams. Through this process we may find companions and assistance in our efforts.
A lunar cycle that will help us to clarify many things, to communicate about what we believe and moves us, to create fascinating connections between things, to return to issues and people from the past to find solutions that are sustainable, to engage in what we are interested in, and ponder on concepts and the big picture. It may sound like an oxymoron to find clarification when Neptune is present, yet this may be of a different kind. We may be using this lunar month to gradually emerge from the depths of intellectual or psychological uncertainty of the past, and permeate into new fields and environments, re-connect through an explorative spirit in our cognitive quests.
The stand outs in the New Moon chart, are the luminaries in conjunction with Neptune, Mercury Station Rx in the last degree of Pisces (in its sign of exile and fall) conjunct fixed star Scheat, and Uranus at zero Taurus. This may describe fantasy land, or a nebulous landscape that may prove difficult to process mentally, or in order to do so, it can not necessarily rely on common consensus logic. Thinking patterns may tackle other than usual tasks or matters. We may see a need to combine different factors, and may need to use our intuition or sensibilities to do so. Empathy and insight may be part of the equation. It speaks of the need to find peace, to devote ourselves to something, to make sense of data noise, to become more aware about the side effects of toxicity, addictions, prescribed medication, or seek outlets to voice and share all these thoughts and experiences that were either exhilarating or devastating. Neptune either glamorises or sensitises. We may be using our imagination, synthesis capacity or engage in spiritual matters. The sensitivities and sensibilities are heightened (physical-mental-emotional) and susceptibility to environmental issues and influences may be considered the central theme of this lunation cycle through the oceanic realm of Neptune. Fixed star Scheat has some very negative and some positive connotations. It relates to sorrows, but also the creativity of the mind and the challenges of logic, the intellect and its blessings. In combination with Mercury, this is emphasised so all Mercurial matters will be affected. B. Brady, mentions “independent thought, the need to break the conventional processes of mind or philosophy and says that Scheat represents the essence of intellect”1. V. Robson, speaks of accidents, the relationship with water, trouble through writing2. The last degrees of signs are critical, 29 Pisces is in Saturn’s terms, and this also may emphasise the crystallisation of ideas, thoughts or mental work that is completed, is focused in a limited territory, or a mental process, speaking or writing dealing with something critical. This may be more visible or assume a more public character. We may see this feature prominently in communications, the news and media. We may see people sharing their personal crises or disseminate critical information especially about the past. Mercury’s Retrograde motion indicates potentiality for misunderstandings, delays and reversals, yet it may also indicate a return to the past in order to re-thing a situation, gain new insight and understanding. Revisiting old matters is always a theme with Mercury Rx and it can be very positive too. Continue reading
