I’m a crier. This new moon in Pisces arrives, and I know it’s my time to go inward.
For so much of my life, I was embarrassed by my sensitivity.
Even as a kid, my mom would say, “You’re too sensitive. Why do you care about them? They don’t care about you.” It didn’t matter.
Yes, I hid my tears and even tried to suppress them, until I realized that the holding back of emotions became the source of physical pain and illness. I grew up with an ulcer — a direct result of denying my emotions (and eating too much sugar).
Neptune has been on the Sun for the last week, amplifying this time of sensitivity.
For too many of us, we escape to daydreaming, going down the rabbit hole into cyberspace, playing video games and escaping with ‘fill in the blank.’
Why does Pisces love to escape? Because they’ve given up their focus on creativity, music, and their hope that this world could get any better. Somewhere, every Pisces gives up.
It’s like Sleeping Beauty (who I’m convinced was a Pisces) — until she was kissed into awakening, she left this world. Imagine this newsletter as a kiss.
What have you left behind to release the feelings of sensitivity? Pisces rules drug addiction, marijuana, lying, alcohol, any which way to escape the pain body of the collective.
I’m going to challenge you under this new moon to grab a pen, an instrument, a book of poems, or your favorite song, and indulge yourself in the healthy version of Pisces.
Did someone say ‘healthy Pisces?’ Those words are not often put together. Every astrological sign has a divine influence, and there is no such thing as a ‘good’ sign or a ‘bad’ sign. Pisces is the poet, trying to make this life beautiful.
Believe it or not, at the age of 10, the poet in me wrote these words, turned into a Haiku:
Love could be spreading
Like water upon the sand
Not missing a grain
Welcome to a Pisces dream. Can you imagine if we all had a direct experience of love as the constant?
During this New Moon, try this prayer:
May we all remember the angels are watching.
You’re being held. Life has your back.
All you have to do is open your heart.
Have a great new moon and share with me the parts of this life that make you want to cry. I know it’s not a popular question, but Pisces doesn’t care about being popular.
And if you can, send me a good poem. I would love to hear what touches your heart.
