Our Pisces New Moon was at 13 Pisces, 12:46 PM Pacific!

Pisces, The Ultimate Connection!

I hope you took a few midday moments to consider your options, use your intuitive guidelines!  Pisces is an ending sign, where we ‘know’ the most, without thinking.  We are the most present because we have super sensitivity, and know our place in the ‘web.’  We feel the needs of ourselves, others, the mighty collective.  We sway in time to the circling of the wheel, the breathing in and out, the dark and the Light.  We know this moment, as we travel through the millenia, when one motion could change the outcome of many, yet but a speck on the ethers of the universe.

The other side is when we don’t feel a thing.  Numb with fear, tired beyond desire, unconnected with Spirit.  Only some primordial nuance keeps us alive; we don’t even care why.  The animal just keeps breathing somehow.  Gather yourself.  Put yourself someplace where you can be seen, to be healed.  There are times things are beyond shame, you just need a leg up outta there.  Deepest humility, surrender, lets us find our deepest Self, that is here for whatever your purpose is.  And, even not knowing that, we still breathe.  Sometimes not knowing is a profound state, a simple clarity, being ‘clean,’ no expectations – provocative in and of itself!

Though Pisces is the very last zodiacal sign, it is also insight, epiphanies – new beginnings!  New Moons bring a stillness, a focus, a being right where you’re at – free to see – new beginnings!  Celebrate your victories and achievements, conclusions!  Start your new 27 day cycle with intent to Listen from your Soul, to the Soul in others, to the big SOUL, the Soul of All!  When you put the old mask aside, put on your Smile of Light, and let it Light your way!

March 2011, Three Perihelions, EXtreme Super Moon!

 
Three March 2011 Perihelions! Perihelions are when a planet is closest to the Sun, fastest in its orbit, charged! Probably it expresses its characteristics most strongly at this period in its orbit! March is loaded! And this is the start to the super charged 56 day Aries Stellium! These planets will have particular emphasis during that time – Mar 21 to May 15!!!!
 
• March 9 Mars Pisces perihelion, once every 2 years. Mars is that hot warrior, champion, at the frontlines with no looking back! New ground is matter of course, great to be pursued if it is a lover, but once won…. Thrives on challenge! In Pisces could be innovative music, surfing life to the fullest, oceanic sales, independence from old addictions, or going down in glory. Anger could be turned to dedication in behalf of the underdog.

 • Mar 16 Mercury perihelion, once a year. Mercury will have just conjuncted Jupiter, also at perihelion, on the 15th! In this case, both are super charged, and in Mar’s sign ARIES, so continues to carry the strong 2011 Mars/Aries theme! Mercury will tell Jupiter’s story with enthusiasm, quickly! Words may be grander, longer, created, exaggerated, played with! If you are the speaker, get to the point and keep introducing new points, keep the flow going! Be ready for peppery questions, challenges to your tenets. Keep focused. Or, it’s a great time for brainstorming! Let it loose and, for the time being, simply record. This is a grand time for teaching and opening people to new perspectives! Increase your advertising, bring on new staff to handle the events. Plan open air athletic or racing events! Jupiter and Aries both love fresh air in their hair!

• Mar 17-18 Jupiter Perihelion – The last time was May 20, 1999! That May, the Discovery Space Shuttle completed the first docking with the International Space Station! Jupiter has to do with long distance travel, discovery, adventuring, map making! Think where you could go to achieve a mission that would spark your Spirit! Go to that conference, go to a place to pray, do a walking retreat/resort, take the road less traveled, talk with the ‘real’ people, meet the Master!

Mar 19 EXtreme Super Moon!  Full Moon 28 Virgo 48

Immediately following the Mercury and Jupiter perihelions, the 2nd Super Moon of six in 2011 is building! A Super Moon occurs when the Moon is at 90% or greater of its mean closest approach to Earth (perigee). This one is the closest of all, 100%+! If there are storms, the waves are bigger, the winds faster – weather extremes like floods or snow storms.  Pisces is the believer, Virgo the skeptic – blind faith or pesty questions.  Balance and backups will help. Source your facts. Get your work done, play well. Mind your health, arrange health care. Be swift to be of kindly service where you can. Pets may need special attention. Finish up nagging projects while opening fully to the next phase!

In response to the recent sensational articles about your possibly being a different sign, for example the Fox News article, let me tell you, you may be and always have been, and you are still what you always were!  Here’s how it goes…. 

Circles within Circles, Many Layers

There are TWO astrological systems.

One is based on the seasons, earth centered, what we predominantly use in the Western world today, called Tropical (Tropic of Cancer, Capricorn).  The other is based on constellations, stars, and is called Sidereal, primarily used in Eastern cultures.  Some feel seasonal Tropical astrology rules more mundane earthly matters and Sidereal is more spiritually oriented.  Both are correct working systems and describe the same things in the sky, just called by different names, in different terms. 

Sometimes they correspond exactly!  As stated at WikipediA, here are the technical details that make it so – ‘As the Earth spins on its axis, it “wobbles” like a top, causing the vernal equinox to move gradually backwards against the star background, (a phenomenon known as the Precession of the equinoxes) at a rate of about 30 degrees (one Zodiacal sign length) every 2,160 years. Thus the two zodiacs would be aligned only once every 26,000 years and were aligned about 2,000 years ago when the zodiac was originally established.’  Because astronomers study stars, they agree with Siderealists; we are that sign.  So, there are two different systems, one astronomical, one seasonal, both astrological.  At this time, there is a 25.5 degree variance, that’s why most people are one sign (a ‘month’) off whichever system you prefer to use.  For example, a Leo in Tropical may be a Cancer in Sidereal.  In my case, I am a Leo in both systems since I was born in late Tropical Leo.  But other planets in my chart do change ‘signs.’  This is nothing new, it has always been this way, but from time to time, someone thinks they have made a great discovery!  And it makes provocative news!

Since astrology is based on observational relationships, a lot of the descriptions in one system are like the descriptions of the other – ie Sidereal Cancer is described as a lot like Tropical Leo.  Makes sense since they are describing the same thing in the heavens, the same time of year the Sun passes through that constellation, same kind of weather for the farmer’s crops, how much clothes you wear.  Personally, I don’t care what you call them, or what system you use, as long as you do it well.  In time, research will level the playing field.  Now that we are recording birth times, research can be more comprehensive, factors can be isolated for accuracy of results. 

At one time there were as many as 18 signs in use, and at another as few as 6, with other variations in between.  Dividing the sky and the year is an arbitrary thing. Different cultures through time have used entirely different stars in totally different ‘constellations.’  We use the ones used by the Greeks and Romans. And since they were established, about 2000 years ago, stars have moved!  What we see in the sky now is not the same as what they saw!  In the recent articles, some are suggesting we add a 13th sign, Ophiuchus (Oh-fee-YOU-cuss), the snake holder – a constellation that has always been there, of course!  It’s also called Serpentarius – does that remind you of Scorpio (associated with snakes) and Sagittarius?  It would be between them!  See the proposed calendar dates.  Why, why not?  It’s so much fun to tinker with things!  To have 12 signs was chosen to  work well with our 12 months calendar even though they don’t correspond by dates.  It would be so cool if they did, don’t you think?! 

In addition to astronomy, mathematics plays a big part in how astrologers ‘divide’ the sky.  For a detailed historical accounting of the development of mathematics correlated with astronomy/astrology, of chart division, read R W Holden’s Elements of House Division, if you can locate one. 

Some people swear by one or the other system, Tropical, Sidereal; some use both and feel each one works better for particular things.  If you have time, check it out!  Most Westerners have their Tropical charts.  If you want, I would be honored to do your Sidereal chart, only $5.  I don’t to the interpretation, but you can enjoy pursuing it on your own once you have your chart!  I use the Fagan-Allen version, but can do Lahiri, DeLuce, Raman, Krishnamurti, Usha-Shashi, Djwhal Kuhl, Sri Yukteswar, JN Bhasin, Larry Ely, Takra I or II, Sundara Rajan, or Shill Pond versions!  You mean there are variations on the variations?!  But of course!

I love it how people, who don’t believe in signs, are defending their signs, saying it’s really them, and they don’t want to change to that other sign, yuk!  That’s pretty funny, and totally endearing!  What’s cool is they really do ‘know’ themselves. 

Stay true!
