Notes from the Compost Pile

So, how are we doing, folks? Is it full steam ahead or fits and starts? Is there graceful easing or groping in the fog? Of key importance, no matter which, is a bizarre question for you from way out in left field: where’s the sea-level line and where does the ground begin to rise? Riddle me this! 

There’s so much antifragility packed into this new moon in Virgo. The ruler is in attendance, if somewhat bedazzled, and the conjunction forms a sextile to Jupiter in Scorpio and a trine to Pluto rx in Capricorn. With some closer – yes, closer yet –  examination of the less attractive underpinnings-and-persons of our world stage, we can progress in our removal of more – yes, even more – rif-raf and debris on the scene. We can edit the stage in pursuit of best practice in everyday affairs. We can simultaneously optimize that which passes critique to keep. Upcycle the compost. 

In a general offering like this, I would advise looking to the realm of Taurus in your wheel. Note the themes and life sphere that this house occupies for you for ways in which to dig in/begin assessment with your new moon intention. (Subscribers are welcome to complimentary inquiry.)

But there’s some ointment on the fly. Whether that’s medicinal or a ‘bogger’ in my estimation will require personalized study of your unique Here and Now

The Great Waters (in all its potential forms) insist upon merging with this Virgo consolidation of our yin and yang. For some of us, taking some time apart from busy-ness will be crucial to our perceptions and sufficient for gaining traction. For others of us, the need to flexi-serve until mentally or physically exhausted over this span of days may be the way we will paradoxically attain the higher ground. These are examples on a spectrum we can liken to our sacred point on My Way merging with Our Way. All points along the Way are valid, serve a purpose and are meant to be fluid for best mind-body-spirit health. For this reason, All of Us would be wise to consider appraising those matters which we’ve labeled ‘static’, ‘off limits’, and even ‘Keep Out!’.

My new moon wish for you is symbiotic flow. 🙂

Neptune (the All-One) and A More Holistic and Profound Understanding

Narrative and story are tools of interpretation. They do not and cannot represent absolute truth. Within the evolving person’s life a narrative can change many times. Alternately one might apply a multitude of narratives to a single issue so that in effect one can see themselves simultaneously through many prisms and thus have a more holistic and profound understanding of their experience…

Narratives carry what might be called energetic information…Ultimately when one frees themselves from attachment to any particular narrative, then narratives cease to have energetic impact and clarity comes.  – excerpts from the numinous frontier by Monica Cassani

New Moon: 26 Pisces 53

NMcyp170318

In Healing
The sun and moon drift through the last decan of Pisces, more opened from their encouraging contact with the rulers here, Neptune and Jupiter. This sets the pair up – provides optimum opportunity – for their conjunction to receive and include Chiron, the hero of a story celebrating a universal journey of transcendence. Chiron symbolizes the archetype of one In Healing; he represents those of us who develop strength and wisdom after the experience of great injury – often from the least expected direction – and PTSD that follows. This is a story of process, of trial and error, release and freedom, and at this new moon, we are invited to rest and reflect on how far we have come In Healing. *GROUP HUG*

Less is More
An ‘exhausted’ Mars in Sagittarius offers no argument as it squares the stellium in Pisces, though it probably indicates that you will need to employ your best coping mechanism to some frustrations during the days around the new moon. Crossing the last degree of one house to touch down in the next, I rather like seeing Mars as a bridge, as the fighting spirit in us all applied in connecting all that we’ve been discovering lately (Mars in Sag) to all that we will be working to make concrete/productive/profitable (Mars in Capricorn). Let’s want that. Let’s put our energies at this new moon into personal bridge-working for our own storyline. We can muse over recent blocks, handicaps and observations for wise use in our 2018 forward strategies.

We’ve Got Back-Up
On cycles synchronizing with this new moon: A stationing Mercury and experimental Venus in Aries enjoy a frictionless flow of warmth from the North Node in Leo. Concentration on your message content is called for. Consider your audience. Practicing your allure? An examination of your comfort zone boundaries is encouraged: good things can happen when you dare! Little dares count, for sure.
It’s a fact: we’ve got a lot of work to do in the coming months. Mars reports for duty in Capricorn and Aquarius – signs ruled by the Taskmaster – every day from the 18th of March until the 15th of November. (Note that Mars continues to be best channeled in pragmatic bridge-building through the 1st week in April.) Feeling authentic as is possible in our purposes and goals will be a big part of what sustains us through ebb, storm and flow.
**
Consider, examine, reflect, rest and invite the Muse to play.
A magical new moon to us all!

Full Moon: 11 Virgo 22

cypFM2mar18

Swing Low, Swing High

While a full moon symbolizes a reaping and the supply of important missing information, this time around we’ll see continued fluidity to mundane life issues within the day or two – or ten -before and after the event. Unlike a typical full moon, the lines defining ‘before’ and ‘after’ will be smudgy for those with mutable energy points. It could take quite some time to feel anchored again. And this makes sense because the driver of this energy is in uncharted seas and the metaphoric vibe for the waters depends almost entirely on where you believe you are on the spectrum of surfer/submerger. Know this: it’s a shapeshifting, somewhat tricky balance, no matter who you are!

Our thoughts and interactions may reveal wide swings between washed out identity/ego drives and a heightened sense of homecoming/an identity channeling as born-this-way soul soother/healer. Matters could reach a transcendent phase – wonderful. Matters could reach an overwhelming phase – not so good –  but full of important data for later processing. Mercury (this full moon’s ruler) isn’t too happy out at sea during the calmest of times; now being linked within this massive Pisces flotilla lit up by the Virgo full moon, expect a weepy, leaky, seepy span of time from the 23rd of Feb until around the 9th of March.

For All Of Us

We’ve often mentioned following our bliss, driving ourselves hard to make our passion take fuller form in our daily life and means but don’t worry if you lose your groove or your shine for these few days. It’s just a blip on the radar that will fade: While Leo likes to shine, the energy wave at the moment is all about humble busy-behind-the-scenes Virgo with no energy to spare for theatrics and Pisces whispering, ‘We all shine or none of us shine.’ It’s a good weekend to contemplate these perspectives before heading back out onto your world’s stage. Whatever work your investing yourself in, there’s still the less glamourous but important chores to attend to.

Mars in Sagittarius is challenging sponged-up Mercury and the best all-inclusive phrasing for this could be: there’s a zone of your story that’s brimming to overflow. You may be trying to contain and process the volume but you’re only mortal. Some Other is strongly voicing a wish/demand/quest OR within Self, the imagination brings an alluring potential tweak to your growth trajectory. But application will upset the apple cart. Let it. It is highly likely that this ‘upset’ is meant to help your sense of duty to stand down and accept the overflow/accommodate the Other/apply the tweak. When the waters recede, you’ll be able to appraise again.
