We Leave the Father’s House & Turning Back, We Save
The above words are the seed thoughts of Pisces recited by the New Group of World Servers during Pisces and especially at Tuesday evening’s Pisces new moon festival. We also have a solar eclipse, the first one of the year, followed by a lunar eclipse in two weeks at the full moon. Solar eclipses signify something essential, as bright and important as the Sun in our lives, has come to an end, its task completed.
The Soul’s meditative seed thought for Pisces is “I leave the Father’s house and turning back, I save.” There is a similarity between Pisces and Capricorn seed thoughts. In both signs the disciple/initiate “turns their back” on “heaven” (the Father’s House) choosing a return to Earth in order to “serve” (task of Aquarius) and to “save” (task of Pisces) suffering humanity. The Pisces seed thought is a message of willingness. It knows a supreme sacrifice was made when we as spiritual beings left the “place where the Will of God is known,” the “Father’s house,” our original spiritual home prior to successive lives on Earth.
We (our Souls) know we left the harmony and unity of the Spiritual world in order to serve humanity (the Scorpio world disciple). When we realize these truths we understand our spiritual identity (who we are), why we live on this planet where there is deep suffering, and what we are to do from this moment forward. “We have no other life intention,” we inform the Christ, still in the desert, still within the 40 days and 40 nights of Lent, preparing to re-emerge into the world on Palm Sunday.
As all the zodiacal signs reveal the Path of Light of the Soul, Pisces is the “Light of the world, revealing the Light of Life itself, ending forever the darkness of matter.” Pisces, the last zodiacal sign, holds all gifts, abilities and seeds of the preceding signs. Pisces also holds the sufferings of humanity as well. These words also explain the depths of the person born in Pisces (Sun, moon, rising).
The true history of our world is that long ago, each of us responded to the sacrificial call, symbolized by Pisces, to “save (bring light to, uplift) the world.” And so we “went forth, descended into matter, making ourselves instruments of Goodwill for the purpose of radiating to humanity the Love the world seeks.” Pisces produces that Love.” And thus “saves.” And here we all are.
ARIES: Rest and relaxation are most important. Retreat continues to be a required need. No matter what you attempt, veils drop in front of you. Should you push forward, you only find clouds of confusion. Go slowly, use your heart, slip into a comforting environment (and shoes), dance and sing to Kirtan music. Krishna Das (Yoga’s Rock Star) and Deva Premal & Miten are some of the best Kirtan singers.
TAURUS: Your entire focus is on group work and creation of community. This is correct for it will be only through intentionally creating, living and working within community that humanity will be able to thrive in the coming years. There is a need to tend to your immediate health. This assures us you will continue with the vision and leadership needed to get us from here to there with safety, right direction and right resources.
GEMINI: The planets, all clustered together in Pisces (sign of saving the world), are nestled in your house of work, which is where and how you’re recognized, seen, and remembered in the world. What are your thoughts these days concerning your work, profession, career, leadership skills and public life? During this full moon serve those around you with great dedication and love. Tend to the home and garden. Consider your future.
CANCER: Maintain simplicity this week. Tend to easy chores, seek help if needed. You must maintain health and strength. You may be thinking of an upcoming trip or travels somewhere. It may be a very important journey. Tending to things holy and blessed. Careful walking, accomplishing tasks, getting from here to wherever you need to be. Communicate with those you love more frequently. It builds your strength of character.
LEO: Have you found yourself working slower, having to redo, review, reassess and create a calm and patient sense of inner resilience these recently? What is occurring with your money and finances? And with money and resources held in common with another. Did something unexpected, expansive, confusing or illuminating occur? This is a very special and expansive time to tithe to those in need. You will then be given more, so you can give again.
VIRGO: When the moon’s in Virgo, the Sun’s in your opposite sign of Pisces. Integration takes place between yourself and others – those close to you, intimate friends, those you work and live with, and even enemies. Virgo and Pisces, like all opposite signs, shadow each other, holding the secret of wholeness. The gifts one sign possesses the other needs. The shadow of the other eventually integrates during full moon times.
LIBRA: Is the unusual occurring in your life? With multiple Pisces planets you could be involved with building a natural pool filled with plants. Is there water rushing nearby or in your workplace? You could be engulfed in a flood of tears. You could be learning to swim or ride the waves. You could be thinking of saving the world. Or yourself. You could be lost, confused or realize you’re being purified and prepared. Build a fountain.
SCORPIO: Creativity should have slipped into your life quite easily taking you by the hand, creating new interests and goals, asking that you mingle a bit more among artists, writers, musicians, performers so you begin to identify more specifically as highly creative and not just a dark stranger behind sunglasses and long black coat while standing in the bright, hot and radiant sun. Someone shows up to help you understand.
SAGITTARIUS: Many opportunities seem to overflow into your life. So many you may feel under/overwhelmed. Don’t be. Some you’ll understand, some you won’t. Some are good, some not. As they continue to appear, you find what feels like home with safe and protective barriers. Sometimes we just need to retreat, hide under covers and lazily swim toward tranquility. Do this.
CAPRICORN, Because you’re the zodiac’s traditionalist, it’s good to begin your yearly tradition of growing grass in a basket, learning how to dye Easter eggs with natural leaves & grasses, thinking about making food baskets for Purim or Easter, and preparing to bake nuts and honey and poppy seed sweet breads while reading from the Book of Esther, the only Old Testament book that does not spell out G-d’s name.
AQUARIUS: Should you feel overtaken by changes in money, finances, friends, home, by confusion in any of these areas of life, give yourself time to acclimate because something’s unfolding and something’s being refined. Keep close and careful tabs on all money and finances. It’s possible you’ll be taken over by a desire for a very expensive object. Don’t be. It’s an illusion. Save.
PISCES: This full moon brings the hidden out into the open. It may be a new self-identity. Six lights (4 planets, 2 asteroids), in Pisces should illuminate very deep and interior parts of yourself. You’re often uncomfortable with the world as it presents itself now. You seek to know what’s real, what’s ahead, what came before and what just passed you by. And where you are to go. You’ll soon know which direction to take.
