the sky was bright blue at six am, last night's gibbous moon long set. today, the sun enters pisces, and the full moon's in virgo.
someone asked me yesterday if i think the moon influences our behavior, collectively and as individuals. my answer is an unequivocable yes. i believe that its influence can be seen not just in tide tables, but in the very soup inside our cells. each of us isnt really much more on some level than a membrane around encased droplets of the primordial sea from which all life spawned. i believe one can attune oneself and one's energies to these influences, and can use them, preferably to the benefit of one's Self and others.
i believe this is the Work of the Witch.
the virgo full moon as the sun enters pisces is an "afflicted" moon - the energies of scientific, analytical virgo don't mix easily with soulful, transcendental pisces. but in their most evolved expression, virgo and pisces together represent the principles of healing through action, of conscious awareness for the holiness of all reality, down to the smallest particle. for virgo, caring comes when one works with others to find workable solutions to everyday problems. pisces provides the vision and the intuition, virgo provides the service, and the craft.
the lunar eclipse tonight intensifies this already intricate dance.
i know more than one person who's struggling to find solid footing under this challenging moon.
and furthermore, the war must end. blessed be.
