Pisces time has begun. The Aquarius influence activated last week does, however, remain very strong. This can be understood as the overlapping of cycles. The core thrust of this chapter of the Aquarian revolution is now underway. It contains numerous levels actually, and these will be triggered for years to come. This is due to the far planets in Aquarius for decades! Just as Saturn ends its cycle in Aquarius (Dec. 2020 – March 2023), Pluto will then enter Aquarius (March 2023 – March 2043), yes a 20-year cycle!

This means that each New Moon for the next 22 + years will carry a strong Aquarian charge. In the short-term, each New Moon this year will also be loaded with Aquarian influences. Specifically, the waning Square from Saturn to Uranus, (the two ruling planets of Aquarius), the first of three of which occurred on February 17th. As well, Mars forming the first of 3 hard aspects to Pluto occurs on February 24th. The powerful synchronicities manifesting as the global, social revolution once again reveal ‘as above, so below.’

This cycle of the Sun through Pisces, the sign of the subconscious mind and the life between lives, the sign that contains all the signs, of flights of imagination, mysticism, otherworldliness, and multi-dimensionality ultimately constituting a seamless whole yet as appearing as separate realities…, occurs within the context of two powerful aspects. The first of these aspects is of Saturn Square Uranus on February 17th, (the first of 3 of which span the entire year). The second aspect is a fiery, creative Trine between Mars and Pluto. 

These together can be described as a theme of grit and grace. The Pisces factor can also be seen in polarized light. While some people, (the fewer), see right through the many charades and deceptions occurring in the world at a global scale, what some are referring to as the real pandemic, the majority appear to be oblivious and under a trance stemming from addictions to mainstream media sources which are deemed to be true and absolute.

Regarding the current moment with the ingress of the Sun into Pisces, true to the sign, surrender is the keyword. Yet, surrender does not necessarily imply defeat. Surrender can occur in many ways. It could mean surrendering our illusions and delusions or tendencies to be apathetic, escapist, or, on the other hand, overly idealistic or consistently belligerent. Surrender can be directed to overcoming denial and procrastination, for example, and becoming more disciplined and accountable in light of the realities of our goals and responsibilities to maintain a balanced life. 

So, avoid interpreting the word ‘surrender’ and, in the higher sense of Pisces, interpret in the kaleidoscopic sense that every word has multiple levels and angles of interpretation. Since we each stand before God on our own, (a Pisces theme), the most important question you can ask is: how do I need to surrender?

Gaining a deeper understanding of this important theme can be more clearly deciphered via a deep understanding of your Birth Chart and current cycles of destiny, and this is where I can help you.
