Pisces Full Moon. Why are we here?. The time of the full moon is a time of celebration. We celebrate the energy of the SUN. The reason is that when the Moon is full it is the furthest from the Sun, thus the Sun’s energy is the strongest.
The time of the full moon is a time of celebration.
We celebrate the energy of the SUN.
The reason is that when the Moon is full it is the furthest from the Sun, thus the Sun’s energy is the strongest.
Thus we celebrate the energy of the Sun through meditation and reflection.
For those of you who are not familiar with esoteric philosophy – or do not know it well – I will remind you that all is energy. Thus you should simply relax and try to feel the energy rather then concern yourself with understanding everything.
During the lecture you can ask questions or make comments. After the meditation you may also ask questions.

The Sun is in Pisces.
And which sign is the Moon in?
The Moon is in Virgo.
You may have another planet - or the Moon – in Pisces.
Even if you do not the Pisces energy will still affect you - and, perhaps, as importantly those around you.
If you are a Pisces you may not display all of the characteristics of Pisces as you have other planets and energies which also affect you.
concerned with changing things into something else
emphasis is on adaptability
Pisces brings about the end of emotions through dissolving into the oneness of all things.
Beliefs are based on feelings rather than on reason, passion, or practicality.
Perceive life through their emotions
Water rises into the air and falls as rain, nurturing the land.
Need close emotional relationships, and rarely have superficial affairs.
Pisces is symbolized by two fish swimming in opposite directions. Pisceans often feel like they are being pulled in different directions, making it difficult to make concrete decisions. The symbol of the fish has been associated with followers of Jesus Christ.
The glyph for Pisces can be seen as depicting two fish swimming in opposite directions. As well, it shows two crescents of receptivity pointing outwards, held together by the line of matter. The sign of Pisces is considered a receptive sign—one that is impressionable, spiritual, and open-minded.
Typhon, Aphrodite, Eros
The Little Mermaid
In many fairy tales there is a peculiar and enchanting figure, sometimes called an ondine or melusine, sometimes called a mermaidWhat is the Little Mermaid story?
falls in love with a mortal man
Legend of the Swan Prince
You might say that in every Pisces, symbolized by the two fishes trying to swim in opposite directions yet bound together by a golden cord, there is this dilemma of the meeting of two dimensions.
Some Pisceans simply follow the mermaid down, forgetting that human lungs cannot survive underwater. Here we have the derelicts of humanity, the lines of the junkies and the chronic alcoholics and the hopeless, the waster, the despairing, the abject.
We’ll now mention some of the challenges to Pisces. Remember though we are talking about the energy of Pisces and there are many types of energy.
Associations of the Christ story with astronomical factors abound. As the Bull and Ram had been worshipped during the preceding Ages of Taurus and Aries, the Fishes became the great mystical symbol. Christ was said to be a “fisher of men”
Similarly the death of Christ, the Crucifixion, could contains a symbolic reference to the end of the Age of Pisces when the Age of Aquarius begins. Christ’s body was fixed to the Cross (Cruci-fixion) but astrologers know of something called the “Fixed Cross.” This is the group of four so-called “fixed” Zodiacal signs forming a cross within the circle of the Zodiac: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. When the Vernal Point precesses into Aquarius, the four seasonal points, the two Equinoxes and two Solstices, themselves always forming a cross, will have moved into the fixed signs or Fixed Cross of the Zodiac from the mutable signs where they are now.
There are several variations of the myth concerning the labor of Hercules in the sign Pisces. We are told that there was an island where lived a human monster with a body of three men united. He had a herd of red cattle, guarded by a shepherd and a two-headed dog. Hercules received orders (Pisces is the sign of obedience) to bring these cattle from the island, across land and water to the sacred city.
Hercules sailed to the island in a golden cup and when he arrived there he climbed to the top of a mountain and spent the night in prayer.
Then he killed the two-headed dog but he did not kill the shepherd.
He also killed the owner of the red cattle.
Here is the beautiful part of the story: Hercules placed all of the cattle in the golden cup, in which he had sailed over to the island, took them to the Sacred City, and offered them in sacrifice to Athena, Goddess of Wisdom.
Hercules has had a vision of something he has to do. He sees humanity owned by a monster, a three-bodied man, the symbol of a human being with mental, emotional and physical bodies united. Now humanity, the human monster, is ready for salvation and the real work of The World Savior can begin as a whole with the group concept underlying the work rather than individual soul saving.
The two-headed dog representing the matter aspect and the psychic nature. You see why Hercules spared the shepherd. The mind can still be the shepherd of the cattle but the two-headed dog, the psychic-emotional nature and the matter aspect, Hercules killed, which means that they were deprived of any power.
The symbolism of the red cattle is plainly that of the lower desires, desire being ever an outstanding characteristic of humanity.
. They are guarded by a shepherd, which is the mind.
If Jesus [or Hercules, or you] as a human being, en rapport with his [your] soul, becomes a transmitter of light to the sons of men, so we can extend the concept and think of humanity as a whole with all minds held steady in the light, transmitting to lower kingdoms in nature that spiritual energy which will raise them up into heaven. That is the work of humanity. We are so occupied with our own problems that we forget the larger picture. It is to be noted again that the keeper of the cattle, the form aspect, was also killed but the shepherd and the cattle were raised up in the golden cup.

We can view this as the energy of water “feelings” (Pisces) on the level of the personality and earth “organized and predictable” (Virgo) on the level of the emotions – looking at the elements. Both are mutable signs which are associated with changing things into something else. Thus this produces a personality blending emotional sensitivity and intuitive understanding with the Virgo traits of discrimination, intellectuality and practicability—good mental analysis, constructive criticism and common sense decisions. There is a working together of the intuitive and practical. One can make one’s intuition, feelings and impressions about things useful in practical affairs.
These individuals have generous natures, with enormous capacity for enjoying life and wanting the very best of everything. Whether or not they pursue a formal education, their intellectual curiosity compels them to want to know everything and gives them a healthy respect for knowledge. Negative associations of this conjunction lead in opposite directions; ruined health and finances caused by constant overestimation and overindulgence, or, miserable miserliness inspired by exaggerated self- denial. On the positive side these individuals are true spiritual leaders, gifted actors, mimics, inspired teachers, writers, and artists.
Moon opposite Jupiter indicates that though the material abundance promised by the Moon’s association with Jupiter may never appear or may be wasted, these individuals probably have not been deprived of the jolly sense of humor and great intelligence which are also implied. To be successful they are certain to have to overcome some type of emotional exaggeration, either gross overindulgence or its opposite extreme, asceticism.
Mercury conjunct Neptune indicates those who may often fail to see the reality of situations even to the point of completely exhausting others who must deal with them on this basis. However, they also may have remarkable farsightedness and instinctual understanding of things that less sensitive intellects cannot grasp. They are likely to have great fondness for art, design, music, and nature.
Mars sextile Saturn indicates those with a good sense of timing. They often know exactly when to act, or in some cases, when not to act. They are apt to receive opportunities to get ahead in business, construction, real estate, management, banking, or property management and development. They are good at aggressively planning and promoting their own interests as well as others. Those with organizational skills are excellent administrators, instructors and trainers.
The time of the full moon there is a direct alignment between the energy of the sign the sun is in and the affairs of the sign the moon is in.
Sun – Pisces – total renunciation
Moon – Virgo – fulfills service intent
In our meditation this evening, let us visualize a common goal for humanity. Groups of men and women of goodwill bonding together to support right-human values. Let us use our magical powers of manifestation, and see this happen. Leaders and ordinary people alike, afire with goodwill and humanitarian vision, acting in concert for the good of mankind as a whole.
I leave the Father’s home and turning back, I save.
