Neptune Retrograde in Pisces

If you celebrate Samhain during the Traditional time of the year, today we are mid-point between a 3-day aura of Samhain’s energies. The 29th heralded the transition into the Scorpio Moon at 10:01p.m. and today’s New Moon shifts the gears from waning towards waxing at 1:38 p.m. All this carried forward into tomorrow, October 31st traditional Samhain. You could stop the Samhain revels there , if you like, but consider this. The 31st is the appetizer served to whet the appetite for the most potent and nourishing of energies that occur on the date of Astrological Samhain (Sun in Scorpio); usually somewhere around Nov. 6-7 or 8th.

Why, this second date? Technically these celebrations were calculated in accord with the mid-point (of days) between the Equinoxes and Solstices. The same holds true for Imbolc (Feb. 4/5-Aquarius); Beltane (May 5/6-Taurus) and Lughnasadh (Aug. 5/6-Leo). Additionally, each of these Sabbats fall within the Solar month of one of the four Fixed astrological signs during the Solar year. The Sabbat, or Solar/Fire Holi-day occurs when the Sun is 15-degrees in the fixed sign; that being the mid-point or height of potency for that sign’s energy. (More about this in a later post)

For now, let’s make use of the New Moon on this auspicious day as we greet our Ancestors.

Scorpion, Eagle and Phoenix

Father Sun and Mother Moon dance in the dark deep waters of Scorpio. And, Mercury-the communicator extraordinaire, also in Scorpio, joins the party of mystery and deep insight. All systems are go for seeking interaction with our beloved ancestors. Scorpio, as the astrological sign of Fixed water provides a stable container that may serve as the filter of what has come before and what will emerge in the future while remaining fully present in the now. Mercury eases and opens the gates of communication, much like the international liaison between two lands (living and departed) that may not speak the same language so that exchange can be made. This communication takes on the expression of Scorpio, so whatever comes through will most likely be what has lain in wait in the subconscious and now the time is ripe to draw it up to the surface. Don’t be surprised at the bluntness of what is communicated, however. This is the “sting” of the scorpion’s tail that awakens you to what lurks deeply below the surface.

The beauty of astrological Scorpio is that what is hidden beneath has the ability through its naturally transformative quality to allow a rising high above as it takes the form of the Eagle (a second attribution to Scorpio); keen of sight and able to see precisely what is needed to be sacrificed to feed and nourish. And, once that state has been mastered, the Phoenix (the third of attributions) stands center and strong in rendering down the last of our resistance and re-generating from the ash a {w}holly changed being! This phase of metamorphosis is the blueprint for seeking ancestral wisdom, taking it in-challenges and all-and letting this new knowledge transform how we walk within our world of the living and share the gifts of our deeper gnosis.

Retrograde Neptune in astrological Pisces

An additional cosmic boon is the energy of Neptune, now retrograde in its ruling astrological sign of Pisces. Pisces is the last of the water signs as well as holding the auspicious place of being the 12th and last of the astrological signs of the Zodiacal Wheel. Pisces expresses itself in compassion and self sacrifice that is honed by extraordinary natural empathetic and intuitive sight. Neptune, as mythical God carries the Trident that parts the seas (of emotional outpouring) as the three pronged staff directs a triad of energetic power towards higher aspirations. The triune quality is one that is Spiritual in nature and calls forth the Divine spark, each prong much like flames of will, action and desire. Holding the knowledge of this planetary energy in heart as we seek audience with our beloveds creates a space of intuitive insight and receptivity that is of Spirit to Spirit (our Highest self) meeting in the common seas of creation itself. This sea being one that is not bound by time or space an one in which all that was, is and shall be converge as a singular point of meeting.

Now,we are ready to pen our heart and minds to those we wish to commune with at this most sacred of times. Now, the place of meeting will be awakened as we step through the veils…

Meeting on Solid Ground

This pathworking can be used at anytime, but will be particularly potent today because of the preliminary work that has been set in motion with the previous posts. We will be using it again on November 7th, as the final post for the intention begun on October 16th.
