Cycles and Paths



Ocean Waves by Cathy Pagano

          We come to the very end of our yearly cycle with this Pisces New Moon on March 11th.    This New Moon marks the astrological end of 2012.   We not only came through 2012 intact and hopefully inspired, but we came to the end of the 25 years of the Harmonic Convergence as well.   During those 25 years many of us worked to wake up and become self-aware individuals--and now that 2012 is past, we have to create a new life out of what we've become.  

          This year's Pisces New Moon sets the tone for how we're going to live in a new paradigm of life.   It's especially appropriate because Pisces represents that vast ocean of feelings and needs that make up our humanity.   Pisces is our return to the Source of Life, the vast Collective Unconscious; when we dive in, we come back with the treasures we discover there, treasures that can be the foundation of our new life.   These are spiritual treasures that our culture has devalued and ignored for too long.   Our task, at the ending of an Age, is to heal our soul's wounds, trust our Spiritual insight and envision a new way of being for ourselves and our world.

         This year's Pisces New Moon is especially powerful for many reasons. Just as Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac, the next sign, Aries, is the beginning of the new astrological year.   Since we are in an inverted moon cycle with the full Moon occurring before the New Moon in the Sun sign, the seeds we plant at this Pisces New Moon will bear fruit during the next Full Moon, which is in Libra/Aries.     If Pisces symbolizes a death to the old paradigm, then the Libra Moon/Aries Sun opposition in 2 weeks will give birth to the fruit of the seeds we plant now.   What has your soul been longing for?   Plant the seed of that desire--Mars the warrior god is at the very last degree of Pisces at this New Moon, and he will help you.

Pisces New Moon 2013



Pisces New Moon 2013 by Cathy Pagano/Kepler

       The salty water element of Pisces dissolves and purifies.   Neptune and Chiron in Pisces focus our attention on the purity of our waters -- our drinking water as well as our oceans and seas, rivers, lakes and springs.  

        Without the waters of life we must endure the Wasteland, which pretty much describes our modern society.   With Mercury retrograde connecting to Venus, the Sun, the Moon and Mars in Pisces now, hopefully we'll get the message that our waters, our emotions and our souls need to be refreshed.   And the way to do that is to follow our heart and let Love guide us.   When we turn within to meditate, dream and remember our true origins, we can engage these archetypal energies and bring them into the world.   Pisces reminds us that we're not alone!

        The Sabian Symbol for the Sun and Moon at 22* Pisces is: A prophet carrying tablets of the new law is walking down the slopes of Mount Sinai. This prophet is still walking, still contemplating the divine revelation s/he has received from Spirit.   The tablets make these "laws' concrete in some ways.   So, the question is, do we listen to prophets who have had a personal revelation and make a new religion of it?   Or do we each go up that mountain and find our own revelation so that these new laws will be written upon our hearts?

        With 7 planetary energies in Pisces we might find ourselves tuning out what's going on in the world and tuning into what's going on inside us.   That's the proper way to show respect for these cosmic energies.   If you do turn within, you'll probably find yourself having weird and interesting dreams, discovering some valuable and even brilliant insights and being filled with grace.   Who doesn't want to swim in the ocean of Spirit's grace?   We can choose not to, of course, and that's when we get caught up in needing to control, to repress and to trivialize.

Cathy Pagano is the author of a new book, "Wisdom's Daughters: How Women Can Change the World". Cathy trained at the C. G. Jung Institut-Zurich in dream interpretation, then got her M.A. in Counseling Psychology in Feminine Spirituality, and along the way became a certified Life Coach. As an astrologer and storyteller, she weaves the Cosmic Stories written in the stars and from The Bard's Grove, comments on emerging archetypal themes in movies. Cathy works with the tools of the imagination - dreams, alchemy, myths, astrology, symbolic language, storytelling, ritual - to awaken the Soul's wisdom.

I believe that Americans are called to a higher consciousness at this point in our history. We are called on to live up to our ideals and create the country our forefathers imagined. Inner consciousness needs to be acted upon for social justice.

Cathy believes that our writers and artists must take up our responsibility to create art that inspires, teaches and heals our humanity.

Cathy writes about political, psychological/spiritual, and cultural issues.
