Pisces New Moon, March 7, 2008


Pisces is an era of storms and of wholesale disintegration. But Piscean winds of destiny may impel [people] of vision and courage to discover many a “new world,” as much as they destroy or suffocate the many who stubbornly resist change. Pisces is an era of often sharp and violent repolarization. It is an era of purgation and cleansing. Tradition has made of the month proceeding the vernal equinox a period of fasting and repentance. Beginning with Ash Wednesday, the devotee of the New Life must learn to identify...willingly with the death of all established structures...must be willing to face the chrysalis state for the sake of the butterfly-to-be. Pisces is the mythical Deluge and the age of universal dissolution....[Humanity] must cling to no stability or no past greatness. “No-security” is...the only possible security.”

                                                     Dane Rudhyar, “The Pulse of Life”

     “No security is the only possible security.” (Perhaps we need to share this insight with George Bush & Co.!) We need to understand this lesson of the sign of Pisces if we want to survive the coming years of change and transformation. With this New Moon in Pisces, we find ourselves at the end of a cycle – both a yearly cycle and coming soon, a larger cycle - the end of the Piscean Age. The Mayan Calendar is only one of many indications that our way of life is about to change. And so we all must wake up to the new life that is coming to meet us.

    But first we have to acknowledge that we are in the Death aspect of the cycle of Life. And unfortunately, most people don't want to hear that. Fear is the Guardian of the Threshold, the monster that guards the gate of Death. But what Pisces tells us is that once we let go of our security and of our fears, and let God/dess, once we die to the little self, there is Rebirth and Renewal through the larger SELF. After Winter comes Spring. Just ask Mother Earth!


    When the time comes to face Death, we discover something: that's when we feel most alive! That's when we find this impossible sense of security in “no-security”! So let's try to understand what Pisces has to teach us.


    And so we come to Pisces: finality yet expectancy; gentleness with a touch of mystery; transitions hidden in every corner of your being; issues too great and lofty to involve your little self; an eternal unrest which reflects on the 'unreality' of life.

    Since Pisces is the last sign of the Zodiac, it is the sign that expresses what we've been and done throughout the rest of the Cycle. In Aries, we begin with the importance of having our own sense of identity. In Taurus, we learn about what we value so we can build something lasting. In Gemini, we learn to think for ourselves and communicate with others. In Cancer, we learn about our emotional needs – what nourishes us and grounds us. In Leo, we learn to play and create and express ourselves. In Virgo, we learn to shape ourselves into a whole being. In Libra, we learn to relate to others. In Scorpio, we learn to share ourselves with others. In Sagittarius, we discover our beliefs about Life and Spirit. In Capricorn, we grow up and contribute to our world. In Aquarius, we become part of the larger group. And we end up with Pisces, where we return to our source with the story of what we've discovered about Life.

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.

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.
