Moon is in Pisces as of the morn of Jan 22.
Mellow out, feelings flow easily, life is a dream, foggy, and gauzily beautiful as seen from behind rose-coloured glasses.
We dream and drift back into the arms of spirit, feeling safe, secure, invisible, floating on a cloud.
We project out perfect gurus onto all kinds of swindlers, sex addicts, quick fix, abundance for everyone, abuse artists in search of God and the illusion of the glamour and riches of the material world.
We are searching for peace, for a piece, of wholeness, of safety once again. But even to say once again is romantic, idealistic, some people have never ever had any peace in their lives, or love, never been loved, never felt safe, never had enough to eat or a place to retreat to.
Moon squares Saturn in Sagittarius. Like I said; caught between a dream and a hard place.
Moon conjuncts Neptune for bazinga! instant karma!
or maybe the zing of cupid’s bow- falling in love instantly.
Moon conjuncts Mars in PISCES-
Get your pain and your healing on.
It’s sexy/hurts to be spiritual, it’s sexy/hurts to be an alcoholic,
enraged, a film buff, a tantric guru, working on an oil rig, an artist, in denial, charitable.
Good time to go to Re-hab under a Mercury Retrograde if you need.
Sun sextiles Saturn
“Just keeping it real”, like those Native Americans say in the movies.
Jan 23 continues in the soft pastel tones of sextiles to heavy hitters Pluto in Capricorn
makes it easy to be hard-working and dreamy too.
Moon conjuncts Chiron in Pisces-
The pain, oh the pain. All the New Age, be lighter, ascension folks, optimistic,the law of attraction and make the multi-level marketing guru richer. Always ignore the nightly news and the dark side of things. I feel that is as much a dangerous form of denial same as any Christian or Muslim right-wing stance.
I’m not saying it isn’t great to be positive, it is. It works. But we must also acknowledge our pain, our hurts, our losses, our weariness and feel that fully. Each one of us carries wounds, and unexpressed pains from our childhoods, as part of the human condition. We do appear to separate from spirit. It hurts. We also carry what I believe are past lives injuries, memories of our deaths, betrayals, unconscious hatred,and fears into this “present” life.
I went to see a friend of mine, Jan Kudelka perform as Janis Joplin last night at a small 200 seat bar/theatre in Toronto. She was honoring what would have been Janice’s 72 birthday on Jan 19.
Jan is professional singer, actress, writer, performer and she had created a similar but more elaborate Janis performance twenty years ago. She has always channelled Janis, had dreams of her. Seen herself since she was a child performing as her before she could possibly know who she was consciously. Prophetic dreams, Pisces stuff. And of course Janis’ alcohol and drug addictions and longing to be loved, and being a martyr are all Pisces themes.
My friend Jan is in her 60’s now. She literally resurrected, a MERCURY Retrograde word- Janis Joplin as if she had lived and was still singing at 72 years of age. Jan channelled those old blues songs, in such a way as to punctuate the profound hurt of each pain, each heart-wrenching primal scream of abandonment. It was a packed sold out show for two nights.
I knew many of the people in the crowd, many of them very New Age types. I am feeling very open and tuned into spirits messages lately. What i knew was why everyone had come to see this performance was that they needed to touch that deep sorrow and pain.
Last week’s monstrosity was the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris, and another 2,000 people slaughtered in Nigeria, we hear about these things, we watch them on the news, or our phones. and then…
We just keep on keepin’ on truckin’ as they used to say in the 60’s.
Where does all the pain registration go to if we don’t feel it fully and sream it out, like Joplin did? Remember Primal Therapy, which started at Esselen in California I believe? John Lennon went through it. It’s totally disappeared.
A female artist from Montreal had created an art piece at Nuit Blanche in Toronto last year. It was a screaming booth, because we have nowhere safe to let out our deep feeling of rage or frustration in a holistic way. I though that Idea was brilliant. It was one of the most popular pieces.
So I felt the catharsis Jan channelled in the blues and we were all so moved by it. Gotta feel them blues in order to be happy. My friends’ life has also been very difficult,she was also singing /screaming her own pain. Her ex-husband had committed suicide.
So allow yourself to feel the pain. Even if it isn’t politically correct.
Pisces is tears. The ocean is the same as our tears. Spirit may also be full of tears too. How do we know?
While up at the Grail Springs last week, That is the other thing that was coming up for me. How do we know if anything is real at all? What is real and what is the dream? Those are the essential 12th house/sign questions. Do you ask yourself these questions?
I was in the crowd watching Janice Live up close in this Video at a Rock Festival in Toronto in 1970.
