It is fortuitous that I start my blog at the verge of a New Moon. This New Moon is in boundless Pisces and conjunct the modern ruler of this sign, Neptune. Neptune has only just started its 13 year journey through its natural home, Pisces. And so it seems an appropriate moment for me to emerge from my introspective space and enter the nebulous realm of the world wide web.
My first engagement with astrology was when I was ten years old. Its appeal was instant and we became fast friends. This lifelong companion has accompanied me through all the different phases of my life. It has provided a lens through which I have viewed my journey and shared insights with family, friends and clients.
Alongside astrology has been a longing to write. Many decades of private journalling have filled a variety of notebook systems. Only recently have I set aside the sensual experience of watching words flow from my fountain pen and found a home for my pages in a book-like journal on my computer; a step I knew would finally lead to posting on-line. Over the past year I have taken the steps required to arrive at this moment in time when I take my musings and present them to others in this public sphere.
I intend to share my insights and stories as they reflect the energies that I experience on my adventure through time. I love observing what I attract into my life and how it reflects where I am and where the energies of the collective may be. Like a hologram I see each part reflects the whole and vice versa. A book read, a bird seen, a fairy tale, a flower blooming and chance events; all adding to the tapestry of life experienced through the dream catcher of the astrological cycle.
Before each New Moon I have various processes that I will share with you from time to time. These tend to indicate what the theme of this m(o)onth may be.
One of these processes is to randomly pick a Flower Essence mix. For this coming Pisces Moon Cycle the flower, Fawn Lily, will accompany me. In perfect synchronicity the Fawn Lily allows the delicate introverted self to become involved with the world in order to disseminate her unique gift with others.
As the planets align in Pisces, as ethereal as a sign can be, a flower offers a vessel for safe passage into the world.
