Not all of you follow me on Facebook so let me tell this story here too –
I was at a coffee shop with my decaf and little chocolate bit of something (very little – seems to be a trend, a perfect trend for me) and they are playing The Beatles’ Sgt. Peppers’ and “She’s Leaving Home” comes on and this song… I can *never* ever listen to this song. It calls up something in me so horribly sad that even I, Moon Pluto emotional warrior, cannot touch it. Prefer not to touch it.
So there I am. In this semi-swanky hipster coffee shop among the middle-aged mommies and other thinkers with their Apple products and I feel about to burst. A piece of ripe fruit about to get smashed.
On the message board we’ve talked a little bit about this, the crying in public thing, and I’m fairly cool with that. I’m a Cancer Sun, Mercury, and Mars. Moon conjunct Pluto in Virgo in the 1st House. I feel things. If it comes up, it comes up. But this? Oh no. Not this. It was a cry for Momma kind of cry that was inside me. Completely primal. That’s what the song does to me. Fills me with unpleasant aching loss (compared to that pleasant aching loss feeling).
The song did end, praise the lord, and as I was writing on Facebook, the next song (For the Benefit of Mr. Kite) does not illicit the same reaction. Ah safe! For the time being. Except that now the cry is lodged inside me and will have to come out at some point. When it will is anyone’s guess unless I induce. Cancers and other sensitives may be familiar with this procedure. When you need to cry and can’t cry (like if you are at work) and in in in in in in it goes, for safe keeping, until it can be expressed at a later time.
That, my friends, was my Venus conjunct Chiron in Pisces moment today. Feel free to share yours. And for those of you who have never experienced such a thing, I truly hope you do. Not from any devastating experience but because an old sad harmless song brought you to your knees.
Looking ahead to the New Moon at 21 degrees Pisces on March 11th:
Hmm Mars enters Aries the night of March 11th but otherwise this is what we have in Pisces: Sun, Moon, Mercury (retrograde), Venus. Also Neptune and Chiron. Mars in Pisces until 11:26 PM.
The North Node will be at 18 degrees Scorpio, trining Venus and Sun and Moon and I’ll include Mars too because I feel the energy more than the number.
Jupiter at 8 degrees Gemini, squaring Mercury retrograde. Big confusion big time.
Saturn in Scorpio is sextilng Pluto in Capricorn at 11 degrees. And Ceres in Gemini is squaring the New Moon (and Sun).
What I want you to do for this New Moon is behave yourself 🙂 Ceres is the mother who lost her daughter and she mourns so no matter what heavenly creatures fill your fancy during this abundant (Jupiter) Piscean love parade… there is more than meets the eye. I think it may feel like moon June spoon fairy dust on one level, but the Jupiter square to Mercury is a confusing exaggeration (reality check needed) and the Ceres square to all that Pisces better be (for your own good says Ceres) about nurturing yourself rather than… devouring yourself or others.
That said, it IS a new start in your Pisces House, but you knew that already 🙂 And it’s not that people are lying to you. It may not even be that you are lying to yourself. But the edges of this New Moon are murky for me, even as they pretend to be all glittering, all gold. Pisces is like that, you know, a shape shifter, adjusting itself to the environment. Just keep it in mind.
