Navigating the deep dark murky depths of Pisces
We are all in the midst of rebirth & clearing. Perhaps you’ve been feeling it, too. It hit me about 10 days ago. It came on as a wave of sadness & anxiety that wouldn’t settle. My heart ached with old pain and I wanted to run away. Everything in my life started to feel too small. The subtle pockets of unhappiness were suddenly rising up asking for attention. At the urging of my angels I took out pen and paper and began exploring and writing about the beliefs and fears that had been simmering just beneath the surface. They had been camouflaged by time so that I had forgotten they existed. But they were there, sending the shadow’s whispers through the various rooms of my life.
My usual approach to life is to focus upon my many blessings and all the things that I love. The truth is I have a beautiful life. And yet, like most people, I have pockets of my life that I wish were different. Most days they do not trouble me because I know that life is always in fluid motion and things change all the time. But during this transit, the shadow became the loudest voice in the room. The parts of me experiencing disappointment and dissatisfaction would not be ignored and demanded my attention.
I prayed, I meditated, I contemplated, I wrote and I allowed my heart to speak its secrets to me. It was a powerful time of awareness that brought me to a deeper place of understanding. As a result, I’ve experienced profound shifts and healing.
Welcome to the powerful Pisces experience.
Pisces is the 12th sign of the zodiac. It is a water sign filled with profound depth. Pisces rules the 12th house, the house of the subconscious & dreams. Last week we had Neptune (the planet that rules the subconscious dream state), the moon (your emotions) and the sun (your Self) all having a party in the sign of Pisces. Most of us couldn’t help but feel the powerful pull to cry ancient tears and feel waves of emotion unleashed from the depths of our consciousness.
The Pisces energies are serving to unearth old beliefs, judgments and hurts that have been lurking beneath the surface. This excavation is taking place in order to shine the light upon what we’ve been holding in our subconscious. These are the subtle patterns that have been influencing our lives for years. So if you’ve been feeling the waves of tenderness, navigating old wounds, know that you have not slipped backwards. Rather, you are being urged to bring illumination to that which no longer serves you.
There is power in being able to see things clearly. I remember in days past of being in a restaurant after hours. Everyone had gone home and the cleaning crew was ready to come in. The dim romantic lighting was off. In its place were bright florescent lights that showed all the imperfections and stark edges of the room. In this atmosphere nothing was hidden, it was all out in the open. That’s what this energy is like. It is illuminating the dark corners of our consciousness so that we can see clearly.
As you navigate this passage, allow for quiet time to explore. Are there places in your life where you’ve pulled back and lowered expectations? Have you capitulated to the voices of fear? Is there anywhere you have started playing small?
The world has big plans for you. Allow yourself to clear out the energetic closets and make space for more of your light to shine forth. It may not be the most comfortable process in the world, but in the end you’ll be grateful for the wide open spaces filled with bright possibilities.
If you find you crave support and companionship during this time, come find me on Facebook. You’ll usually find me engaged in some kind of dialogue about the energies of the week. It’s good to have confirmation that you’re not alone in the midst of change.
