Week of 25th-31st
“To know when to go away and when to come closer is the key to any lasting relationship.’
-Doménico Cieri Estrada
Monday: Moon in Virgo
The slick and smooth slide out of our stuffy cocoons is awakened today by the Moon’s trine to Pluto. With this gift of a glimpse of what it is we need to do in order to make the metamorphosis complete comes into focus with this subtle–or not so subtle–transit. As we lick the gunk from our fresh skin, our wings begin to stretch, and a surge of strength runs through our veins like molten metal, pulling out all of the impurities from our system. This is the gift of Mars and Jupiter creating a taurus field with their sextile harmony. The strength is in you, it has been awakened. The pounds begin to shed, your eyes glisten with excitement about what is going to now be done.

“The greatest pleasures of love are inseparable from its greatest pains: Love has the face of a goddess, but the talons of a lion.”
Monday: Pisces New Moon
None of us are strangers to the amorphous energies of Pisces as of late. Being that there are 6 planets currently in the last sign of the Zodiac–including Mercury Rx–we have all been learning to swim, sail, or surf throughout the past lunation cycle. Before this New mOon occurs, the Moon will pass over Venus, receiving the juiciest kiss from the Divine Goddess. Perhaps she will also give us a beautiful gift in preparation for the next cycle of the Moon. This is a time of letting go, reflecting deeply, and dreaming up our future. Hopefully the kiss works as a catalyst to this process. In the sky we are One, on the ground we are seemingly just a sum. It is a lie. Within this fresh start of a New Moon, remember your unified connection to the the world and to the entirety of the cosmos.

In this show, we explore at oceans edge the strange and beautiful process of planting seeds in the sea of Pisces. I talk about Neptune and the rest of the planets in Pisces, Mercury stationing Direct, and in the second half of the show, we look at how the Moon can assist us in our dreaming experience. I hope you take something from your listening.

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”
Monday: Moon in Sag
This week begins with Mercury’s Inferior conjunction with the Sun. This cazimi relates to the beginning of a brand spanking new Mercury journey. Whenever Mercury passes the Sun in retrograde fashion it is considered Inferior–but this doesn’t mean it’s any less important than the Superior conjunction when Mercury passes the Sun when moving Direct. It means Mercury is not visible in the sky and is passing through the fiery furnace of the Suns rays, being stripped of all it was, readying itself for something new. This means new ideas, fresh perceptions, and evolving the way in which we communicate with the world. With the MOon in jubilant Sagittarius and its ruler- Jupiter- making a square to Venus, it is wise to curb your enthusiasm around quick expansion and instead, practice restraint. Be still. Watch even more closely. Learn something new.
Tuesday: Moon moves into Capricorn in the eve
Life is not easy. Nobody ever said it was. Especially lately, things have been seemingly ramping up on the emotional meter. 2013 has been a doozy for many of us. We are in a window of time where the waters are rising, accentuating our emotional bodies, turning them into hurricane-like winds. And from these raging seas emerges Venus, making a pass at Chiron today, removing a scab from our healing hearts. It is likely we get to revisit an old romance today with the wise Centaur. Don’t look away. Listen to the words of Chiron and your perfect intuition. You are love, you are loved, and that is true. Don’t get hooked or hanged by the pain and suffering of the past. Let the past be the past and move forward with Love in your hearts. Take the experiences you have bravely forged in the past with Love and Love lost, and share yourself bravely with others. Show the world what you have learned.
Wednesday: Moon in Capricorn
With our hearts still bleeding in the space in front of us, the healing continues today as Mercury backslides into Venus’ embrace. Perhaps you read an inspiring quote or hear a powerful song that helps tremendously in the release of this old scar. The moOn is also now in Capricorn, meaning it is cautiously heading for Pluto. As a refresher: Pluto is currently in Capricorn and is slowly and perfectly destroying all of the toxic and limiting aspects of our being. Like the destructive side of Shiva, Pluto is removing all obstacles keeping us away from our true Power. It isn’t an easy road. It is no wonder why we fear Pluto. He brings trauma. And it is trauma that allows us to evolve. Drink the medicine of Transformation today. Don’t be afraid of what you see. A profound angle will emerge, assisting you in the healing your unbreakable heart.
Thursday: Moon moves into Aquarius in the eve
As the moOn moves through the last degrees of Capricorn today, its ruler–Saturn–makes his second sextile to Pluto. This powerful syzygy between the two most feared Archetypes brings forth some penetrating realism today. Wherever these two malefics are transiting in your chart show you were necessity (Saturn) and fear (Pluto) are at the forefront and cannot be ignored. Saturn, like our inner Everest we are meant to climb is seen through parting clouds today. As the moOn moves into objective Aquarius later in the day, we can choose our view of this crux–or problem within. Fly, hop, swim, or slid into a perfect vantage point so that you can get a nice survey of the landscape before you. Epiphany awaits!
Friday: Moon in Aquarius
In the deep reflection of Mercury’s retrograde, a visit to Chiron is made today. Mercury (our Mind) is looking for a cure. Chiron has it. However you may be feeling disconnected from Source, this palaver between the Messenger of the Gods and the Immortal Wise One is going to reveal a yellow brick road for you to follow. So you better make up your mind and get to the table on time. The choice is yours. This electric Aquarius moON also harmonizes (via Trine) to Jupiter, offering up even more Divine inspiration to our cause. The week may have started intensely, but things are looking up. So….look up!
Saturday: Moon in Aquarius
Doubt is virus that must cleaned from our main frame. How nice it would be to be clear and consistent 100% of the time. Unfortunately, it is part of the human adventure to not know all the answers. Are we going the right way? Am I with the right person? Is this the place for me? As Mercury Rx squares Jupiter today, doubt may spring forth like an unwelcomed pimple in the middle of your forehead. Pop it, clean it up, and move on. Listen to your gut, don’t listen to others. Listen to your heart, it never lies!
*Daylight Savings Time Begins: Mar 10th 2:00AM CDT
Sunday: Moon in Pisces
Today, the moOn joins the planetary party in Pisces. Out at sea, confused and going insane, 6 planets battling with sea legs and stormy weather search for dry land, or something to hold onto. Inside the minds of those affected on planet Earth, there may be mazes blooming with smoke and strange mirrors inside our minds. The only way to deal with all this oceanic emotion is to surrender. Let the waves take you. Don’t try to figure it out. Your life, just like all of ours is in a state of dissolution and spiritual attunement. Be as pure as you can through it all and steer clear from bottle, smoke, and retreating slumber. Open your Higher Mind and unwind. Spirit awaits, desiring to bring you to higher heights!

“I’m not upset that you lied to me, I’m upset that from now on I can’t believe you.”
? Friedrich Nietzsche
Monday: Full Moon in Virgo
With todays Full moOn we are faced with the polarity of Time and Timelessness. In Pisces–where the Sun is currently shining upon the moON–we feel the need to slip into a timeless state. We desire no schedule, no responsibilities, and no order; But with the Virgo moON, in its fullest expression, we are forced into the opposite sphere. Virgo brings about the need for order in Time and Space. It relates to our responsibilities. It creates order in our lives, allowing healing to happen. As you watch the waters of emotion runeth over on this Full mOon night, make a list–a list to remind you of all the things you desire to accomplish in the next two weeks. Stick to the list and watch your life transform.
