“For there is nothing heavier than compassion. Not even one's own pain weighs so heavy as the pain one feels with someone, for someone, a pain intensified by the imagination and prolonged by a hundred echoes.”
-- Milan Kundera
Pisces is making a major splash this month -- as if you haven’t had your fill of the pervasive influence of Neptune’s darling in the stars!
First, there was Mars in Pisces. Nearly all of the planets are answering to Mars in Pisces until March 11. Next, we had Mars meeting up with Neptune and then Chiron in Pisces. Mercury in Pisces (about to go retrograde in a few days) and now on February 20 the Sun meets up with Neptune in Pisces.
We're being inundated with collective energies and emotion. Lines are blurry, feelings mushy, and minds hazy. The invisible realms dominate. There is more power in the subtle. Just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean that it’s not real is the theme now.
In fact, it’s that which seeps past our physical boundaries as in energetic influence that will exert the greatest power during this time. Watch for parasites, vampires and other insidious hangers-on during this ridiculously permeable time. If ever there was a time to work your boundaries or create some if you don’t have any -- it’s now. Our skin is incredibly thin and our crown chakras cracked wide open. This is wonderful when we’re surrounded by positive and uplifting people but disastrous should you find yourself in the midst of toxicity.
On the positive side, this can be an incredibly healing and compassionate time. Our hearts are wide open and the healing waters of Pisces/Neptune are nothing short of miraculous. The key is to be discerning with your choice of people, places and things over the next few weeks. We are all incredibly impressionable now … under the influence, so to speak.
