Tonight on Dan and Eric’s Music Appreciation Hour, called Introducing the Blues, we hear from Robert Johnson, Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page. This new Planet Waves program is available on iTunes.
Hopefully Friday’s Full Moon brought some relief to your life, released some of the polarized energy that was in the environment, and that you’ve spent the last couple of days decompressing.
Trust that you can make some headway in situations where progress felt unlikely last week. Today, though, you might notice a subtle sense of something unusual as the Sun makes its way through the last degree of Aquarius. This is a visionary degree — it has one of the most interesting Sabian symbols (degree images) of the lot.
It’s about emerging from a spiritual initiation into a new level of consciousness, which morphs directly into Pisces on Tuesday.
Pisces is the last sign of Northern Hemisphere winter and the last sign of the zodiac. In four weeks, spring will officially begin with the first day of Aries (believe it or not). Between now and then, however, our consciousness gets to swim collectively in the sensitive, creative, populist, empathetic waters of Pisces.
Waiting for the Sun in early Pisces is Neptune; closer to mid-Pisces now is Chiron. These are the two planets in Pisces for the long haul, coloring and shaping everything that contacts this sign. The Sun’s conjunctions to them will bring out different attributes of Pisces.
Eric wrote last year of Neptune that it, like the empathy and populism of Pisces, can be corrupted easily in our society: “Rather than being expressed, it’s far more often suppressed (by drugs, drink, denial, deception and delusion). Those suppressing elements can be so deeply intractable that it can seem impossible to get to the soulful level of creativity beneath them.”
This is one reason why it’s such a boon to have Chiron in Pisces along with Neptune: it acts as a counterbalance or foil, by bringing an element of intense focus to our experience of Pisces. This is the agent that, as uncomfortably or even painfully as it often does so, can bring your attention to any ways in which you struggle with faith in yourself. But Chiron does so expressly so that you can find your way back to it.
