Can you feel the excitement in the air? Usually, time feels linear, and it takes forever to arrive at a point of transformation. If you explore the teachings of both science and spirituality, however, you learn that time is multi-dimensional.
Wikipedia has several pages on the concept of multidimensional time. The reason I bring this up is that in the language of astrology - we're coming into a time of acceleration and there is an opportunity, or opening, for quantum leaps and moving beyond the limitations of linear time.
This energetic shift ultimately moves the earth to a place of healing. The Pisces New Moon of February 28th is a time to set your intention to help shift the planet earth into a better place to live.
To understand the sign of Pisces, it helps to know Neptune, the planetary ruler of this mutable, watery sign. Oceans, the realm of Neptune, cover most of our earth. Water is so powerful, yet you cannot hold it in your hand. Think about the power of a tsunami, and you begin to meet the mythic oceanic Neptune.
Pisces New Moon - February 28th
In the skies today, Neptune and Chiron surround the seed of the New Moon which is at 10 degreees of Pisces. Neptune holds court at 6 degrees - a place of tone and balance. But it's Chiron, the Shaman and Shapeshifter, who occupies the 13th degree of Pisces - the same degree of the Cardinal Cross coming on April 20th.
Spring and the Vernal Equinox of March 21st shift us into a season of new growth, but for today, the Pisces New Moon of February 28th initiates you into a time of hope and healing.
And it is Chiron, the wounded healer who empowers this New Moon. Neptune holds the amniotic water of creation, and Chiron is the guide who accompanies you to the temple of healing. The higher vibrational lesson of Chiron is one of holistic healing; as you heal yourself, you simultaneously heal the earth.
In the spirit of healing, I'll close with a time honored affirmation:
Great Spirit - grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; the courage to change the things I can; and the wisdom to know the difference.
