It is the last day of Pisces today. It can feel like the last day of a retreat – a time that you have been With In, quiet, cocooned. It is nearly time to pack that rucksack and walk out from the hillside retreat, the cave by the sea. What are you putting into your bag? What has been revealed as you’ve gazed into your own depths? What will you keep and what will you allow to be washed away? Perhaps you won’t pack a bag at all - starting fresh, empty-handed, palms raised upward, allowing in the New.
We allow for calm - the Sun is in trine to the moon in Cancer today. The inner waters – the emotional body is at peace – no matter what has been happening, there is always at least some place where we can find stillness – a quiet pool. As we blink and begin to open and our eyes, coming out of the inner respite, feeling the sun coming in through the cracks, there can be gratitude moving through us, knowing the waters connect us to the sea – the rivers - the life blood of all living things.
We begin to pull ourselves up and get ready to move out into the world of Aries. We are preparing to step out again into the world from that place of Piscean retreat and the completion of a cycle around the wheel of the Zodiac. Savor those moments you’ve had With In. Make a physical note of the connections you’ve made with Source, ourselves and others this year. Relish them, float in them, imprint them on your being - before the heat of the sun, the fresh pulse of instinct, draws you out of the door and into the clear light of day.
