Gibbous Moon Phase: trust, embrace

Moon in Leo

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Matangi, Goddess of the Wind

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Seth, God of the North, God of Enlightenment

Skill: breathe in life

True Alignments: protection, guidance, precedent, tapping into ancient wisdom, letting go of the notion of suffering, the way into the mystic, creations of art, history, withstanding an onslaught, survival

Catalysts for Change:  loneliness (this weekend's energy favors getting out), feeling alone, taking over, unable to change with the times, seeking validation from others, aggressive, missed opportunities, depression, lost, rigid, threatening, dark rituals, saying too much too soon

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a large white dove bearing a message" (important information delivered, signs)

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the music of the spheres" (recalibration of consciousness)

When the Sun moves into Pisces, we experience an influx of spiritual energies.  This is quite pronounced this weekend, and focuses specifically on healing us of our fears and showing us that we are always protected and connected with Spirit -- even when we feel most alone or threatened.  Consider the juxtaposition of Sabian symbols for the locations of the Sun and Earth:

SATURDAY - The Sun is at "a squirrel hiding from hunters" and Earth is at "a large white cross dominating the landscape stands alone on top of a high hill."

SUNDAY - The Sun is at "a petrified forest" and the Earth is at "two guardian angels bringing protection."

Do you see the pattern?  The Sun is discharging energetics that naturally heighten our instincts and our defenses.  We tend to be on guard, often not even knowing why.  Primal forces are in play to alert us to potential threats.  We tend to want to look for cover. 

What kind of position is the squirrel in if it is hiding from hunters in a petrified forest?  Is it stuck?  Is it stuck in time?

Looking from a different angle, is the forest itself petrified, as in fearful?  If so, the squirrel would be hiding within fear.

The Earth -- Gaia Sophia, Wisdom -- enters with the wind of two of the most spiritual symbols of the 360 degrees.  The "large white cross" stands tall and strong, seemingly alone, but behind it also comes "two guardian angels" and they bring the protection the squirrel seeks.

Messages, information, signs, and directions are fluttering in the wind like petals falling down all around us.  The way, the answer, the strength, the spirit, the belief, the wisdom, and the desire that we need with something tries to find us.  This weekend, Mercury is discharging the degrees of "a flag is seen turning into an eagle," "a popularity that proves to be fleeting," and "during a silent hour, a man receives a new inspiration which may change his life."  The latter is the energetic with which we end the weekend.  So, the conclusion to this weekend's energetics are designed to be, on some level, life changing.  We are energetically breathing in Spirit (inspiration = in-spirit).

One other thing: Mars is discharging the energy of "an x-ray photograph."  This dynamic goes deep below the surface level with things.  Anything that is not is alignment with the highest and best interests of LIFE and the VALUES OF LIFE loses luster.  There is no room for the fake or superficial with this in effect.  This energetic can deepen feelings of loss, however this functions to help us see or understand something more clearly and take action from the wisdom that is gained.

Ideas, feelings, and situations are morphing as the solar-lunar year is in the phase of closing out (new solar-lunar year begins on April 7).  As this happens, it may seem like things are slipping away, passing us by, or eluding us.  Things are changing into new forms, but they are also operating on the principle of resonance.  Like attracts like; dis-alike repels dis-alike.  Both happen within the Oneness of everything, so there is no judgment.  We can observe and experience the changes without judging them.

This weekend, we are wise owls in a fortified forest of strength, endurance, and adaptability sourced in Spirit.  We open to receiving the messages and the infusion that is filling the air, breathing deeply.
