Hello, this is your Captain Speaking. Please take a look, if you like, at the view screens at the top of your cabin. We’re about to play The Pisces Gallery 2016, a parade of images that tell us how each period in our history looks at the Fishes, and all the zodiac signs, in a way that reflects its rules, and beliefs, its core values and its view of human beings and our planet, and our possibilities.
The show could not begin at a better time: on March 15, the Ides of March in the ancient Roman calendar and the moment when the Sun is in the later degrees of Pisces, about to move into Aries at the Equinox on March 19 west of the Atlantic, March 20 in Eurasia and Africa.
This is one of the crunch and crisis points of what has been so far, and will continue to be, a very Piscean year in every sense. A year when those of us who live in wisdom and love see how beautifully our most spiritual, empathetic and compassionate acts of courage and joy can merge in the all-embracing ocean of the universal heart.
It all shows in this magnificent chart, cast for 9:00 pm on March 15 in Chicago, Illinois because this is the key city in one of the main battleground states in the most important American presidential election cycle in decades. The superb cluster of planets in Pisces, in the 5th house of children, creativity, love affairs, is the same as what we saw at the Black Moon on March 8 – 9, except that the Moon has moved ahead into Cancer in the 9th house, and Venus has entered Pisces. The key feature of these charts for the entire month is the powerful, potentially cleansing combination of the Sun and Chiron (resembling the letter K) in harmonious and nourishing angle to the Midheaven point at the top center of the chart, representing our truest and most authentic values and goals, our shared desire for home, for family ties — and not just with blood family — and for the giving and receiving of nourishment, safety and protection. It’s all here, within our reach, if we will only see it and share it.
It’s a year also when those who live in ignorance and fear will fool themselves, and be drugged and vaccinated, enraptured and enraged by those who play to the shallow end of the gallery, where people demand change in everything but themselves. It is all in play now at the climactic moment, when the Sun conjoins Chiron the Healer in Pisces, and both oppose Jupiter in Virgo. That’s why our people are divided between those who see the most optimistic possibilities of union and change, those who boil with hate and blame toward everything they see as different from themselves, and the skeptics who want to sit at the Virgo pole, eager to talk but cool to act, and too busy doubting anything can ever be better to use the opportunity when it’s served on a glistening silver Moon plate.
That’s why the image of Pisces we see just above, with the two Fishes curved in opposite directions around a central point. Continue reading →
