Sun in Pisces – Compassion Flows

Pisces SunFebruary 18.2015
Sun in Pisces
6:50 pm (EST)
and
New Moon in Aquarius
6:47 pm (EST)

 

Compassion spills and overflows
The oceans of my Soul
Each drop moving through
Rivulets of prismatic depths.

A cadence of virtuosity as
Fingers move in pizzicato
Rhythm across ephemeral strings
The sounds of empathetic release.

Seeker of that which is
Just beyond the grasp
Slips like sand through
The funnel of glass measured time.

And Devotion pools at the base
Of sun-parched throats
That willingly endure the pain
To spare another the distress.

Martyr and miracle
Saint and sacrifice
Each flow in opposition
Until the water clears.

And the darkened path
Of return is revealed
In the depths of mysterious
Waters as compassion
Fills my thirst-quenched
Soul.

The Sun transits into the astrological sign of Pisces tomorrow evening at 6:50 pm (EST). Aquarius holds its last stand as the moon waxes New at 6:47 pm and the final edicts of mind are used as the catalyst for new beginnings. This dynamic is very fitting since we are heralding the final sign of the Zodiac into its Solar Power and the transition from one sign flowing into the next is aptly shown in a watery moon of mind (Aquarius) informing the heated solar waters of all-loving Pisces.

Pisces – The Fish

The astrological sign of Pisces is one of the Element of Water and the Mutable Modality. Its planetary ruler is Neptune and provides access to the depths of emotions revealing the deeply intuitive and healing nature of our own being. The natural energy of the Sun; that of shedding great light on whatever is in its spectrum, now has the assistance of stable mind that is expressed in lightening thought and creative invention. The Sun in Pisces goes about its work of empathetic release as love flows through each interaction and the vision of sacrifice is revealed.

The caution with Pisces is one of overextending the resources so freely offered that nothing is left for the giver to heal and renew themselves. Pisces wants so much to give and assist others in finding their higher purpose that what began as care and support will easily become enabling of continued bad habits. The stereotype of being the doormat is one that Pisces is well acquainted with and the action of tough love is one that is not easily expressed within Pisces’ energy.

Neptune is the ruling planet of Pisces and brings with its energy the mystical and dreamy quality that is a natural component in the Pisces attributes. In the study of Esoteric Astrology, Neptune is considered the Higher amplification of Venus. If we consider this thought, Neptune then moves to a place of Higher Love, unconditional compassion and an evolved sense of “beauty” in the world. In the Pisces native “beauty” is highly refined in the sense of seeing the best in each individual, and moreover, feeling that the offering of unconditional Love will change even the worst tendencies in humanity.

Jupiter is the co-ruler of Pisces and speaks to the expansive quality of Pisces emotional outpouring. This is compassion that stretches and reaches, pulling from the darkest of spaces what needs love and what will benefit from healing. Jupiter is the planet of abundance and prosperity. This is the abundance of a gentle embrace to soothe and calm and the prosperity of time and energy well invested towards a return of another realizing their higher nature.

The Element of Water

Pisces is a Water sign. The energy of this type of Water is focused on the emotional and intuitive realms of the individual. We see this clearly exemplified in Pisces as there is great potential for deep insight and connection at an energetic level wherever Piscean dynamics are applied. The empathetic quality provides an additional benefit of deep levels of understanding that serve to support a naturally intuitive nature.

A Mutable Modality

As we have already experienced with the Mutable signs their primary directive is that of flexibility and expanding upon what has been structured in the preceding Fixed sign. Pisces holds the auspicious designation of being the last of the 12 signs of the Zodiac. In the chronological cycle, Pisces is the Elder who has access to the accumulated wisdom of what has come before and as a Mutable sign acts as midwife in birthing the start of a new cycle with the next transit into Aries.

The first Mutable sign we encountered was one of Air- Gemini- and provided the access to the mind as a vehicle of communication that could be expanded upon as it remained flexible in its method of disbursement.

The second of the Mutable signs was expressed through an Earth sign, Virgo and served to bring analysis and categorization in a very concrete and manifest way to the experiences encountered.

The third of the Mutable signs was expressed as Fiery Sagittarius. Here the emphasis was on an expansive nature that seeks connection and community. These are the fires that begin as embers and when enough have accumulated take full blaze and transform all in its path.

Arriving in the space of Pisces and the heart, the Mutable quality serves to cool what has been ignited and train it as a resource of modeling for inspiration to others. This is the self-sacrificing nature of Pisces, that the other is more important that the self. And, if this expansive quality is applied productively, all benefit from the flow of understanding that is based in a collective consciousness of love.

Words move quickly
Towards my intended
Goal and I communicate
All that I know and all
That I have found.

These are sorted and
Analyzed as every
Detail is highlighted
And every flaw corrected.

Flames reach out as I
Network with others
Hoping to find exactly
Where my passions will
Take hold and action
Can finally begin.

The flames reach high
From the will of my
Efforts and hope is
The only thing that will
Cool the yearning to
Know and to see.

Everything I need
And have been seeking
Floods in like a tidal
Wave of quiet reprieve.

I am healed in arms
That have known all
Of my joys and all of
My frailties and despite
My flaws and imperfections
I know I am Loved.

 And, One More Thing! …. New Moon in Aquarius 

Oval

“ The Moon waxing New in Aquarius provides an extra bolster of energy to explore the recesses of your thoughts and inventive inspirations. Brainstorming and problem-solving with creative outlook as the primary directive are well suited to Aquarian energy. Calling upon Uranus can expedite the mental pursuits, although overload can also result much like the flow of electrical current that is too strong for what the amps can withstand. Let your imagination take center stage knowing that this is often the greatest source of “thinking outside the box”. Although the emphasis is on the “I” with Aquarian energy, that “I” can be experienced as the Higher Self and the information sought and received that of illumined mind.”

Add to this one more thing!

The opportunity here lies in the key of transforming the thought process to be inclusive of the “we”. Using the brilliance of inspired mind to craft a plan that will reach down into the heart level and begin something new that will benefit the “all”. What can you initiate in your own life that will directly or indirectly change someone else’s for the better? This is the stuff of actualizing a future (very Aquarian) that has not forgotten the “human” equation (Pisces).

The Next Step

Knowing how each sign moves to the next and the interaction between each as they evolve towards completion (and threshold of renewal) of the wheel in Pisces tells its own unique story of the astrological wheel. Aquarius is the eleventh sign of the Zodiac. Capricorn acted as the testing ground for what could become reality and served as the affirmer of the resilience and sure-footedness that can be achieved in the steepest of heights and the deepest of depths.

Aquarius’ image is that of the water-bearer; pouring its life giving waters out for humanity to drink. The mystery lies not in the water being poured, but in the empty space left in the vessel now awaiting the filling of water that will next sustain. Nature abhors a vacuum so the implication is that we must freely give of our resources so that we may receive what will be needed anew.

If we look at the dynamics of energy thus far, beginning with the cardinal sign of Aries, we could think of the three signs that begin the astrological wheel as the quickening Fires (Aries- Fire) within the body of manifestation (Taurus- Earth) that gives rise to aspiring towards the heavens (Gemini- Air). Now enlivened by the desire to “know”, the healing and nurturing (Cancer- Water) of what no longer serves this goal is brought front and center into the Light of Day (Leo-Fire) to be strengthened as it is readied for the detailed analysis of Virgo (Earth) that seeks to create a new form for its manifestation. Libra (Air) applied the finishing touches to what Virgo had reduced to the most essential components. Using the adaptability and deftness of a mind that could easily calculate and mentally weigh both benefits and detriments, Libra moved with skill and grace to accomplish what was made ready.

The energy of Scorpio provided the necessary prodding to explore the deeper aspects of the emotions and access the hidden keys of memory that has been hidden and within the fires of Sagittarius, the forging of what was tempered in the waters of transmutation into a more flexible and expansive form is at hand. Sagittarius looked out at the night sky and did not see only darkness, but imagined the beauty of what lay beyond sparkling from the heat of stellar light that are the wishes, hopes and dreams released to be share by the Cosmos. This vision shone brightly within the realm of the human experience as Capricorn moved through terrain that is unforgivable, yet still finds its place of acclaim atop the highest mountain. Having gathered all that was needed to proceed fully informed and ready to reach new levels of understanding, Aquarius released its inventive spirit and visionary insight for all to make use of. And, finally having arrived at the place of Pisces, we surrender into the arms of one who holds us gently and with love and carries us into the birthing of a new cycle.

Compassion Flows

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This solar month is one of focus on how we respond to the world and those within it. This is the wisdom of reaching beyond what the singular I needs or wants and seeing how we can be of help to the collective whole of humanity. This energy relates directly to the heart and using its grace as the instinctive catalyst towards improving not only our lives but others around us.

Pisces rules the 12th House of the Zodiac. This is the house of resolutions and synthesis of mundane and spiritual perspectives. Aquarius brought all the relevant information of the how to the table and now Pisces as ruler of the 12th House is responsible for the who. This is the Solar month of identifying what and who is of most importance to you and how these dynamics will open you to a deeper connection at the heart level. This is the month of finding the compassionate self and stepping into the world of service as model of what is possible when you open to a more loving nature.

In the chronology of the Zodiac, this phase of this Solar journey carries us into Pisces and the opportunity to experience humanity in all its expressions. This is the energy of the wise grandmother or grandfather who loves unconditionally and has a lifetime of experiences to share. The wisdom of the power of the heart that is found in Pisces is what provides HOPE as the cycle begins anew in Aries. These are the final touches on freeing humanity’s soul and the realization of what can be achieved by seeing more as the heart opens to an understanding of all loving compassion and the wisdom of humanity serving humanity as a collective and Divine whole.

And, so with the gentle spirit that is Pisces, we call forth the energy of the Sun as it continues its zodiacal cycle. Once again we repeat the invocation that opened the Gate to this Temple. As you read through it think back to a point in time when you felt love so fully that all you could do was to share it freely and fully with all you met. Think back to hearing the stories from an older person of a life well lived and well loved that gave you hope for your own future stories to be crafted by your life well lived and well loved. This is the blessing of Pisces.

As you read through the invocation, think about what each line of reference evokes within you and stimulates your own desire to hold as mystery that only you can reveal as you seek its deeper meaning. What goals are stirred as you read of RA’s power as expressed within the heart felt words put to paper. This is the power of planning and standing strong in your humanity as you pursue these goals. Use this gift wisely this solar month as we invoke the Solar month in Aquarius and awaken those fires of RA to quicken your surrender to the death of false perception and the rebirth of who you truly are.

Hymn to RA

All Hail to Thee, Mighty RA
Blaze of noon day sun.
Your fiery orb high in the
Sky above as we kneel
Beneath the heat of
Your radiance.

All the Gods bow to your radiance
All the Goddesses sing hymns of praise
To Your glory and man
Lays prostrate in humility
And devotion at the altar of
Your making.

Sweet music of adoration and offerings
Brought forth from the Black Land
Rise up in praise and thanks for
Your Sustaining Light.

All darkness flees at the touch of Your hand
All ceases its movement as Your expansive
Rays stretch across the morning sky.

The lotus opens to receive Your Touch
And the sands glisten as rare jewels
As You gaze upon each grain washed
Clean in the boundless ocean that
Reflects the brilliance of your face.

All Hail to Thee
Amun-RA
All Hail to Thee
Who sits high
Above the world.

Khepra in the East
Atum in the West
Whose eye holds the
Point of Life and the
Trifold Arc of Power.

Your eyes see all and
You are the place of return
Within the glowing blackness
Of the Midnight Sun.

All Hail to Thee
All Hail to Thee
Amun, Amun, Amen!
