A Hypnotic, Blueberry Full Moon in Pisces, 26th August 2018
I believe in mysticism, with an interior goal, and you are your own temple and your own priest. I don’t believe anymore in religions, because you see today there are religious wars, prejudice, false morals, and the woman is despised. Religion is too old now; it’s from another century, it’s not for today. ~~ Alejandro Jodorowsky
This shimmering FM in tropical Pisces is basically the lunation when everything around us ripens; also known as the Sturgeon Moon, the Green Corn Moon, the Blueberry moon, it will be a welcome break, bringing in alchemy and magick as we move away from the quantum wormholes the eclipses opened up. It is a moment of respite. It is a moment of silence.
The Pisces/Virgo polarity comes into focus and as this FM lights up my natal moon and is opposite my Ascendant, Mars, Venus AND Rahu! This is my moment to emotionally open up. The Moon, remember is our emotional body. This FM wants me to connect in deep, meaningful ways with you.
This makes so much sense, because the FM conjunct my natal moon, has finally given me the opportunity to write in my blog and pen my thoughts in a more personal manner. Writing for huge amounts of people takes away the personal touch that this blog has! It has been so, so long and every single moment my heart wants to open this page and create posts. But believe me, it has not been possible. Writing for numerous platforms, websites, and magazines; for satellite networks too, I have not had the wherewithal to write in my own personal blog. And this is my personal space where I try to make astrology come alive by studying various aspects of the occult and the esoteric from many systems. I combine, mix and match to bring the ancient wisdom into practical usage for the contemporary era.
Time is not linear and today what I want to tell you is that to understand your past, you have to study your future! WTF! How do I do that? If I could know my future, how will that help me uncover my past? These questions provide fodder for meditation as this magickal lunation draws close in the mystical, tropical Pisces and is conjunct the fixed star FOMALHAULT, termed the Northern Guardian of the Earth by the Chinese and in India, this star falls in 6 degrees of the sidereal or Vedic Aquarius and is known for being the bridge to the metaphysical. It is called the “Veiling star” and as the Ancients have told us, this fixed star is here to help us heal the human condition. Psychosomatic and spiritual healing! The Persians named Four Royal Stars and Fomalhault was one!
My Moon is conjunct Fomalhault and I am ruled by the nakshatra Satabisha in the Vedic system. Michelangelo and Da Vinci both had their moons in this zone, so there is a propensity to the abstract, the metaphysical and the surreal combined with an uncanny interest in the occult. I mean that is how it played out in my life.
Now brace yourself- SATABISHA translates to the HUNDRED HEALERS! Satabisha is my Moon Lord! Most individuals touched by Satabisha become metaphysicians(physicians too) and healers and these people are very interested in the cosmos, the skies below. The original skywatchers! If you have any planets from 6.40 to 20 degrees of Aquarius then you are in fact touched by the grace and healing powers of this nakshatra. You will be blunt to a fault, but truthful. You do not believe in mincing your words. Fomahault or Satabisha gives tremendous creative potential. And I mean TREMENDOUS. But in a sense the energy is of extremes. It is like the number 23! It lands you in such chaos that there is either drowning or creating magick! What do you choose this lunation?
Fomalhault makes you independent and you will not surrender your belief and ideas till your last breath! You are intellectual and if you have benefic in conjunction or opposite to Satabisha, then you will be famous. This is a sure shot pointer to fame! If you have malefics like Mars, Saturn or Ketu, well, then your challenging journey may push you greater heights previously unsurpassed by anyone.
Always keep in mind that Fomalhault is associated with intense and extraordinary extremes and Ebertin said “this star is of quite variable effect, either very good or very bad, depending on the overall cosmic structure. Tied up with either Sun or Moon, the influence of Fomalhaut is said to be quite marked.” Moon conjunct Fomalhault brings “secret business causing much trouble and enmity, but eventual gain after many difficulties.”
I have my Rahu, Ascendant, Venus and Mars opposite Fomalhault or Satabisha. Always check the opposite sign to a fixed star. Because fixed stars affect conjunctions and oppositions. Which makes it tropical Pisces/Virgo polarities and in the Vedic system we have the Aquarius/Leo polarity happening. If things are getting complicated, then skip to the next bit. I also say this in case, the sidereal system does not interest you. But it should, because it really is very, very accurate, interesting and complicated AF!
In terms of animal totems, I suggest look for the Ox, the female horse or mare. Now let me share this synchronicity on steroid- in the Chinese system, I am a wooden horse. So yay cosmos! Thank you for all the signs! I am awakening to the possibilities of the 100 healers!
Now the ruler of Satabisha is Rahu or the North Node who is now in tropical Leo, sidereal Cancer and the presiding deity is Varuna, ruler of cosmic waters or Neptune who is involved in a grand water trine this lunation and in some other aspects coming up. The Vedic system is pretty tangled and intricate, but is strikingly well rounded once comprehension is achieved. With each day, I find myself digging into the Vedic and Tibetan systems with renewed interest and zeal.
Aum Jalbimbaye Vidmahe Nila Purushaye Dhimahi Tanno Varunah Prachodayat- This is the Varuna Gayatri which you can recite 108 times to activate this ethereal and surreal energy vortex. Think of Satabisha as a Hundred Rescuers, A hundred Helmsmen or meditate on the hundred shoots of a lotus flower and see the magick!
The Sabian Symbol of 4th of tropical Pisces is – A Heavy Car Traffic on a Narrow Isthmus Linking Seaside Resorts. In “the Astrology of Personality,” Rudhyar tells us, 4 Pisces is said to be a symbol of “linkage in activity of all community values,” “free flow from ideas to consummation,” and “sense of significance in relationships.”
What do we need to do when there is a traffic jam? We need to work together, as a community. We need to increase dynamism in all aspects and functions of social life. There has to be a peaceful interplay of ideas for humanity to work in synthesis.
How do you think you will finally find mobility after being stuck for so long in the traffic jam? I know we are dying to move ahead. The retrogrades have definitely felt like a nightmarish traffic jam, but the energy is shifting and the dark clouds of uncertainty and inaction are clearing. Finally! Couldn’t have been sooner!
