Full Moon | September 10, 2022 | 17 Pisces 41’
At the new Moon, I postulated that the troubles of the world would not end unless we changed how we were directing our attention to it. The world I speak of is not the manifest. I am referring to the psychic world which underpins, precedes, and holds the world that we think is so real; that we need to tune into. This is the psychic world where things are really happening. We could do much to change our physical world if we would use the magic afforded us by the psychic world of Pisces. That means changing how you feel when the manifestations make you unhappy. “It is not what happens to you, but how you react that matters.” - Epictetus
The manifest world is finished. This can be seen by Virgo as Key 9, The Hermit, because nine is the last of the digits from 0 to 9. In Qabalah 9 means completion. It is the end that allows for the new (0) beginnings (1) expressed by ten read right to left.
Now, I hear Jesus on the cross, saying, “It is finished” and “died for your sins” in a whole new way. I hear “died to show you the way.” Jesus was the great example, not the great exception. Qabalah says sin is “missing the mark” and not being bad or evil. Jesus lived and died so that we could be guided by his example.
Jesus' example can be summed up by saying he stayed in communication with his Father. He taught the multitudes the beatitudes. He taught us to love one another, including our enemies. If we cannot love our enemies, how would we turn them? More important, how would we turn ourselves? How would we have a working love? He trained twelve disciples (12 signs) to heal the sick and cast out “demons,” erroneous ideas that torment, just as he did. I was going to refute that Jesus said, “Why hast thou forsaken me?” until I read that he said it at the ninth hour. I was going to say that those words were out of character, but nine connects us back to the Virgo Key. I mean to say that Jesus talked to his Father constantly. If you and I could remain connected to our inner guide, we could find the strength to persist even though the world about us is noise and tumult.
This reference is not about the historical Jesus, but Jesus the symbol, being the same symbol as Buddha or Krishna. I just googled “Buddha as avatar” and I found, “the Buddha is adopted as the ninth avatar of Vishnu.” We may not understand every word Jesus said, but that does not keep us from grasping the message.
Change your relationships by changing yourself. Putting Virgo in the rising position puts Juno in Pisces on the cusp of the 7th and Moon and Neptune in Pisces in the seventh. Juno is the asteroid of relating.
“Even while you are in your physical flesh, blood, and bone body, you are more a Vibrational Being than anything else. While the vibrations that you are offering today could be fresh and new because of what you are currently focused upon, most people carry many residual vibrations from past experiences simply because it is easier to continue the vibrational momentum of a thought than it is to choose a new direction.”
Understand vibrations as feelings. You are more an emotional being than anything else. Even though you might see yourself as an “earthen clod” your body is 60 – 74% water. Soften your objection to the person who is vexing you. The Sun and Moon are both squared by Mars in Gemini in the ninth house where we can argue because we believe differently.
You might say something like, “Even though my partner disagrees with me, I can keep my head and keep my heart and remain undisturbed. Instead of cursing them, let bless them. My alignment must be with my higher self. If I am true to myself, I will not require the loyalty of others.
Easier said than done, but well worth the try.
