Mixing Astrology with Tarot ~ The 10 of Cups and the Last Days of Pisces

When I first sat down to write this post, I wanted to ask you how you could benefit through the last ten days of this zodiacal year ~ the year that runs from Aries through Pisces. And it IS a good question. But then my mind started drifting. It’s Pisces time, after all. Why focus?

I started thinking about all kinds of things from my past, and one of the things that came to mind was how I first entered this odd world of woo-woo and not so woo-woo Wonder. Continue reading

Tools for the New Moon in Pisces

New Moon/Solar Eclipse at 8° Pisces, February 26, 2017.

Moon in Pisces is dreamy, intuitive, and extremely sensitive. There may be an urge to draw inward or retreat from the noise of the world. Underdogs can capture our attention, and we may rush in to help save them whether they want us to or not. Our dreamworld can take on a life of its own.

New into Crescent Phase: Moon in Aquarius, Pisces, Aries

We are now on the other side of the line that I mentioned yesterday, facing a whole new year of possibilities. The Moon moves into the Crescent Phase tonight when our instincts are tested, but we are still in the New Phase for most of the day. It’s not too late to make your New Moon wishes and perform your New Moon ritual today since we are still in the New Phase.

Scorpio Lunation Day 12: Eat the Zodiac

Yesterday’s tool for the day was to Drink the Kool-Aid, a term for buying into a belief system. When we follow the Moon to our New Moon Dreams, it’s imperative that we believe and have faith that what we are doing will serve us well. Today’s tool is much more down to earth and not ephemeral at all, but it will also serve the heart and spirit. Continue reading

Scorpio Lunation Day 11: Drink the Kool-Aid

The Moon moved into Pisces yesterday afternoon shortly after the arrival of the First Quarter Moon. Pisces’ motto, “I Believe,” may be one of the most important factors in fulfilling New Moon Dreams. Forward movement can be based on cold hard facts and empirical data, on faith and belief that any dream can come true, or any and everything in between the two. No matter what flavor you pick, you’ve got to drink the Kool-Aid. Continue reading

Full Moon in Pisces ~ Touch the Moon

Full Moons are sirens. They float above us in the night sky, calling us with the irresistible hymn of dreams that might be. Some of them are bright and breathtaking Moons, supersized. Others, perhaps a bit more distant, emit a soft halo. Some tease us, only briefly appearing from behind clouds. Others are found falling across window sills or slipping past skylights. This heavenly lantern hypnotizes us into imagining all kinds of possibilities for our future, leading us toward paths that have yet to find a starting place, assuring us that these dreams are, indeed, within our reach.

fullThere’s no Full Moon that tugs at my heart the way the Pisces Full Moon does. Maybe I fall too quickly under her spell, hoping for just a glimmer of magic to make everyday life just a tad more interesting. Maybe I wish too intently for a glimpse behind her gossamer, star-tinged drape.  Perhaps this is the Moon that reminds me most of the dreams that drifted past when I briefly turned away. Gone forever now, dissolved into yesterday.

Dreams are all too often swept clean by routine, work-a-day life. We lose them. Or we let them go, not quite knowing what to do with them anymore. Closeted and unused, they lie just beyond our reach, beyond our touch.

It’s Virgo who has the ability to give substance to our dreams, make them real. We must trade gossamer for stone, occasionally cleaning our hands on the delicate fabric Pisces has woven. We work, we dream. We embrace chaos and elicit order. Stacking one stone atop another, we move closer to the dream. Working tirelessly, listening for the siren’s call, we build our cairn of dreams and, if diligent and unbroken, standing atop our life’s work, we are ~ one day ~ able to touch the Moon.
