Full Moon in Pisces: Be Here Now.



by Sherene Schostak September 05, 2009 03:25 AM EST

I'm writing from Ammachi's (the hugging Saint) ashram in Kerala, India on this Full Moon in Pisces. Situated between the Arabian sea and the backwaters, in the midst of monsoon season, it could not be more of an archetypal Pisces setting. All the elements are here. Pisces is linked with the devotional side of our nature. Where, what or whom we choose to shower this devotion on will determine the extent of our longing. This morning's spiritual talk, barely understandable to those who don't speak the native language of Malayalam, had one distinct sentence in English that rang out and reminded me of the essence of this Full Moon's teaching: "God is nowhere. God is now here." Eckhart Tolle really brought this teaching to the mainstream with his "Power of Now"  Oprah gold but it's such a difficult thing to put into practice. If we're not plugged into the deeper longings of our soul, our tendency is often to want to check out. Pisces reminds us to get out of our heads and into spirit. Pisces rules the language of poetry, music and all things subtle, sublime and divine. But we miss it unless we're totally present to the moment. And the more we let our minds wander away from our essence, the more we fall into mood swings, and allow our negative tendencies to devour us from within.

I found this old Cherokee story printed on the back of a Vedanta booklet that the most magical ashram gatekeeper kindly offered to me when I arrived:

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.

He said "my son, the battle is between two "wolves' inside us all.

One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.

The grandson thought about this for a minute and then asked: "Which wolf wins?"

The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."

Since Pisces is linked to the Moon tarot card depicting a wolf and a dog howling at the Moon, this story seems a fitting illustration of the teachings of Pisces.
