SUN, MOON, VENUS IN PISCES
First, I always mention this because it is on of my favourite planetary configurations ; the cresent moon alongside Venus. This new moon will see the moon waning and waxing with Venus present. Venus plays a pivotal role in this new moon. Venus in Pisces is unconditional love , while its’ opposite force, Jupiter in Virgo, is conditional love.
JUPITER IN OPPOSTION IN VIRGO
We live in a dimension of polarity. Everything seems to have a polar opposite. In astrology this is true. Signs oppose one another to form the experience of extreme polarization ( which some of us who are ,’extremists’, experience on a regular basis). This means you may like to live with a lot of adrenal running in your veins in a what is called the flight or fight mode of ,’sympathetics’, and the domain of conditional love.
Alternatively you may prefer total calm and safety and live as much as possible in the mode of , ‘parasympathetics’, which is rest and recuperation. This is the other end of the spectrum to pure adrenalin, and the domain of unconditional love.
Since the human body is designed to handle both of these extremes, it makes sense that we are meant to experience both arenas. Why not? Why not enjoy it all?
In this new moon, the Sun, Moon and Venus are in opposition to Jupiter in Virgo.
Let’s look at what this polarity represents.
Pisces love to look at the world from rose coloured glasses.
This is the best kind of love because it simply ,’is’. You love just because you love. These are the relationships that offer the most freedom. There is a great freedom experienced when you just love another because you genuinely feel it , both for you and for the other.
When dignity and respect are in the mix of this sort of relationship you have the ultimate form of love. ( in my opinion)
Venus in Pisces is the cosmic frequency of unconditional love.
Venus is exalted in Pisces which means the energy of love is aloud to be fully expressed. What is better than that?
When it comes to this subject it is important to remember a key cosmic rule about the frequency of love.
Love comes from an endless source.
Love can be unconditional
Love can be conditional
When you examine your own relationships it is helpful to be honest with yourself about whom you love conditionally vs. unconditionally.
Caveat: You must have unconditional love for yourself before you can truly have it for another.
( Suddenly it does not sound so easy)
JUPITER IN VIRGO ~ CONDITIONAL LOVE
Any relationship that is not unconditional is conditional. When you sit in your truth, you will likely find that many of your relationships ( including the one with your self) have conditions attached.
Rather than judging this as wrong, let’s look at it from the perspective of real life.
It is pretty easy to know which of your relationships are defined by you meeting certain expectations. When love flows or stops flowing only because somebody has acted correctly according to some written or unwritten agreement, pain comes. This is pretty common with the relationships we have with ourselves. Expectations not met cause disappointment and pain. Love that stops flowing because of this sets up all sorts of coping mechanisms which are often in the form of co dependancy or addiction.
In our world, most of us are subject to both until we gain the clarity and strength to move away from this paradigm.
This paradigm is highlighted during this new moon.
FANTASY VS. REALITY
Very often the fantasy is easier to digest than the raw facts. This current age lends itself nicely to maintaining fantasy with many relationships occurring online and through texting. The feeling is strong enough, the brain does not know the difference between fantasy and real life.
Pisces would rather deal with fantasy when reality becomes to shocking. Virgo, the polar opposite side, only deals with facts. Because each of us has Virgo and Pisces somewhere in our own birth chart, this paradigm will exist at some stage of evolution in our lives.
NEW MOON IN UTTARA BHADRAPADA
Agni rules this lunar sign. Agni is the god of fire. This means this cosmic frequency has the power to burn and yet, the polar opposite also exists within this sign. The power of Uttarabhadapada is to bring cosmic rain -varshodyomana shakti.
This is such a beautiful, and eloquent way of exhibiting the polarity of this life and this new moon! The pain that caused from the burning of conditional love and the relief and freshness that comes from unconditional love. This new moon is a time to reflect, and , ‘feel’, how the art of love if operating in your life!
The other planets in this new moon mix are mars and mercury in Aries and Saturn in sagittarius. These are strong fire planets that will assist in the burning. Pisces is also endings.
THE BEGINNING OF THE END OR THE END OF THE BEGINNING?
