13* Pisces New Moon


13*Pisces New Moon

By Tara Sutphen


 13* Pisces New Moon (no moon – starry dark sky, the time of dreaming), culminating March 4, 2011. This Pisces New Moon is the darkest and deepest of dreaming. How deep can you speak to your conscious and subconscious mind, going inward to reconstruct and sway yourself to thrive at life. There is an unreasonableness that we all grapple with, tempers, anger, stubbornness, loneliness, unhappiness, laziness, unworthiness and it takes an inner dialogue to remedy and balance our motives and intent. Without this unease we might react superficially through mishaps or hardships, but it’s usually radar to take a step into being more thoughtful and releasing problems. If we can’t shake our worries, fears and phobias, some of us stay in misery, denial and downright lost. We have to find that formula to gain insight on what needs to change and why. And this is that time, where we delve very deep, reaching further than we usually go with ourselves to give those pep talks and create antidotes.

Most of the time, when we look at the experiences that really hurt us, we can begin to break the cycle of connection to those people, places or things. From a deep rooted perspective, we must energetically let go of what holds us back from attaining love, jobs and career, happiness and great health. And to move on we recognize the fear and begin progress. Really letting go, usually when we reach adulthood we’ve been hurt by others plenty and must remember not to hurt ourselves. In our frustration or karma we can live out drama or trauma or get stuck and can’t make a move. I’m not talking about real tragedy for we know how painful that can be. And to overcome a sense of helplessness is daunting. That too must be examined and soothed. It’s good to have a refreshing cry, but it’s not good to cry every day. We shouldn’t stay locked in a deep space just as we shouldn’t be too on the surface.

For a whole month we are allowed to look closely at our pain and its origin and how to fix it as best we can by next new moon when we go rushing into life full on. For it’s to rest as well, deeply resting the organs, cells, and blood, the core of our being, our spirit…allowing all the pressure to float away as we intellectualize the process. And if we’re holding onto suffering we can unlock the energy attached, you may not be able to put into words how that force is locked to your body but you can release all trauma and unease.

    Loneliness affects much of the population. Self criticism hinders many from taking a chance at change, money or love. Try and look at the consequences of your speech, your manners toward others, your reactions to relatives, friends and the general public, and also how you treat yourself. Regard others as you want to be viewed and respected. Value yourself. Look deeply at all areas and if you need to correct a few of the bad habits, let it begin. Slowly and with grace, know that every day is a new day and it is yours to begin again. It is never too late…



    But you now, you wear your soul on your sleeve, exhausting your energy, propping yourself up on a tree, mumbling, or bent over your desk, asleep. Heaven gives you a form and you wear it out by pointless argument. ~Chuang Tzu (c.360 BC – c. 275 BC) early most significant interpreter of Taoism
