New Moon in Pisces: Dissolving Into Oneness

This Friday, March 20, we have a very special New Moon solar eclipse in the 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 Super New Moon falls in the very last minutes of culminating Pisces, just before we step into a completely new round of the zodiac game of life. Just a few minutes after the eclipse, the Moon resurrects with the fiery fresh start of brand-new-life Aries, and a few hours later, the Sun follows suit to join Luna for a wild Spring Equinox kickoff party.

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 very soon we 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 d̩nouement, the climactic dissolving of our previous expression. Pisces New Moon is prime time to turn our keen awareness on the yoga Рthe union Рof 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. 

This is all on the crux, tails of the final Pluto-Uranus square. 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. 

Saturn in early Sagittarius is standing by in a nice trine to the New Moon, stabilizing us all in his call to universal wisdom. Saturn grounds the truth. He ensures we do not step forward without respectable spiritual traditions and teachings in tow to anchor us. I foresee that when Saturn trines Uranus in fellow-fire sign Aries in 2016, this integration of grounded truth and inner wisdom will make a lasting worldly impact for us. Start now.

The Awakening Group: STARTS TOMORROW!

Tomorrow morning is the birth of
The Awakening Group & Talks with Erin
Friday, March 20, 2015
10:30 to 11:30 am Pacific
via Skype

This introductory meeting will be offered via Skype video on Friday, March 20, 2015 at 10:30 am Pacific Time. We will end by 11:30 am. 

In this talk, I will discuss “The End of Suffering” and open it up for questions. 

To join the group:
1.       ASAP - Please send Erin confirmation of:
·         Your Skype ID
·         Your phone number (just in case)

I will send you a "Skype request" and then add you to the call.
 2.       The group will be on donation basis – via PayPal, or on my website,

3.       Suggested preparatory short reading (totally optional): Ramesh’s Grace: A Simple Story of Waking Up by Erin Reese (2012, Amazon Kindle, $2.99) 

 IMPORTANT NOTE: Please try to log onto Skype around 10:15. I will add you to the “live” group by 10:25 and we will sit in present awareness, silently, together for a few minutes. At 10:30 I will add any last minute folks to the call, and we will officially begin. 

What is this all about?

Perhaps you are someone who, like me, had done all the seeking, personal growth explorations, therapy, yoga, meditation, and recovery you could take, and were still suffering. Perhaps you are getting to the point of just being plain DONE with the search. Perhaps you are finally to the point of full renunciation, at the point of surrendering everything and finally saying, “Please, help!”

The missing piece for many is the attachment – the final attachment to ego, to existing as a separate identity. This is the part that still self-identifies and needs to drop or be dropped. In order to fully make the launch to the next cycle, the disidentification with the egoic self must occur. You are not the doer; grace is flowing through you, both making successes and victories, and making "errors." It is all perfect, even when it's not. There’s never a reason to worry, never a reason to hurry, said my teacher Ramesh. “Everything is a happening according to God’s will/Cosmic Law.”

For those of you who don’t know, that is called advaita vedanta (non-duality). In my experience, it is the yogic understanding (perfectly realizable in this lifetime!) that one is drawn to after the other practices and approaches of yoga (mindfulness and awareness) have been traversed (in a non-linear fashion). It is the limb of awakening, when all principles, practices, concepts are seen as false – and all is realized to be as it is, beyond our singular control. It is Samadhi, yogic union, Oneness. Existence is as it is, an infinite number of causes and effects happening simultaneously.

If you’re asking nothing more and nothing less than the End of Suffering, you will be at the end of seeking. Ultimately, this is the end of the superego and the end of the inner critic. It is the end of the identification with the ego, the illusory central locus of operation. There is no more separation causing unnecessary shame or guilt, or egoic pride. It is the end of the identification with the “me.”

I am happy to share this with you. It's been about four years a-knocking!

With love,

One of my favorite feminist songs celebrating women is by Peter Gabriel with Paula Cole, "Shaking the Tree." Listen and enjoy here:

Turning the tide, you are on the incoming wave
Turning the tide, you know you are nobody's slave 
Find your sisters and brothers 
Who can hear all the truth in what you say
They can support you when you're on your way
It's your day - a woman's day

~ Peter Gabriel, "Shaking the Tree"
