Flip the switch on your self-expression, star gazers. A planetary mashup of Sun, Moon, Venus, and Neptune in imaginative Pisces illuminates your sectors of creativity and compassion. Such an orgiastic conjunction should come with a disclaimer: resist the urge to lose yourself in daydreams or day-drinking. The best escape from your overwhelming divinity is selfless service to others. If ladling lovingly at your local soup kitchen isn’t your cup of tea, give back, then, by giving your creative best. Unrestricted inspiration has a long tradition of benefiting humanity with lasting creative works.
The new Moon in this conjunction amplifies your power to create possibilities on the path ahead … as long as your vision is rooted in reality. Delusions of grandeur simply will not do. Daring a deep dive into the dark waters of the subconscious can be dangerous indeed for those uninitiated in divine mysteries. In the ancient teachings of Yoga, the deceptive powers of the world are collectively called Maya. This is the blinding force of glamour that convinces us of our own grandiosity. Empower your resistance by distinguishing what’s true from what’s illusory. That kind of discrimination, coupled with compassion, is a recipe for collective enlightenment.
