New Moon in Pisces: The Reality of Non-Duality

These are the days that must happen to you. 
 ~ Walt Whitman, "Song of Myself"

Tomorrow, March 17, we have a very special New Moon in the sign of mutable water sign of Pisces. In its purest essence, Pisces represents the ultimate end game, a deep dive into limitless consciousness. We return to the realm of oceanic oneness symbolized by two fishes, swimming this-a-way and that-a-way, linked at a single point in awareness called Presence.

Pisces reminds us that Existence is perfect As It Is, not necessarily as we would like it to be, nor as it should be according to our concepts and notions. The moorings are loosened, moving us to clear the decks entirely, letting go of any remaining vestiges of illusory control or self-imposed suffering.

This New Moon falls in the very last days of culminating Pisces, just before we step into a completely new round of the zodiac game of life, soon to resurrect into spring with the fiery fresh start of brand-new-life Aries. In this final Piscean emanation, we are poised between incarnations. This is a magical, liminal space between old and new. Very soon, we will be expressing a new form of expression, a new World of perception will be born. So at this New Moon, we experience spaciousness, a portal to relish all that we have lived, learned and processed. We take a deep, timeless breath, for we are about to begin a brand new chapter. 

Dissolving Into Oneness

Before we are ready to launch into the fiery initiation of Aries, embodied anew, we experience the dénouement, the climactic dissolving of our previous expression. Pisces New Moon is prime time to turn our keen awareness on the yoga – the union – of pure non-duality. This non-separation is Oneness, Sat-Chit-Ananda (truth, consciousness, peace aka bliss). Here we release all we identified with, before we are rebirthed into a new cycle.

Watch. Witness. Experience. Harness all of the juicy, profound spiritual insight you have reaped over the years. Embody it, express it fully, wholly, holily. You are the ageless, timeless wisdom. Existence needs you, just like this. As non-dual teacher Karl Renz likes to say, “You can only be that which you cannot not be.”

Pisces offers release, to be completely inseparable in the Ocean of Consciousness, the Entirety. It is like dissolved sugar or salt flavoring the ocean of consciousness. Where is the sugar? Where is the salt, exactly? Can it be seen? No, but it can be tasted. In the tone of Pisces, we find the ultimate dissolving into the non-separation. You Are That!

In experiencing, we are living a relative life of apparent of cause and effect – with happenings and comings and goings and appearances in time and space in which we have relative control. But that is a snapshot – a glimpse of a moment – not the complete picture! Simultaneously coexisting within and without this relative experience, there is an absolute space, where All is Ocean, All is One. 

Fatalist astrologers of yore liked to focus on Pisces as the sign of ‘self-undoing,’ or the garbage heap where all the unseen junk is stored, somewhat akin to Freud’s unconscious. But I like to see it more as the Jungian collective unconscious, a space where Past, Present and Future all coexist and time and space are only relative. 

A significant evolutionary piece is now fully developed, ready to implement in a new incarnation through you, as you. There is a rumbling push from within to self-express, the tone of Aries coming in – authentic assertion. Even if YOU or IT doesn’t fully launch until later in the year, a fresh bud appears that will soon flower. Experience and embody the unfolding.
