The high-vibration integration of the Virgo/Pisces polarity looks like being fully embodied and connected with the Earth (Virgo) while also hooked up with our infinite Source selves (Pisces)…. The Virgo New Moon calls for spiritual discernment and seeing through the illusions that keep us powerless so we can reclaim our sovereignty.
When I look the new moon up with the inside-degrees I get the following for the moon:
A man hanging upside down from a tree.
Out of phase with the personal ego-mind, in phase with the greater laws, you are absolutely forced to stay put, to sit tight, to watch and listen and say and do as little as possible. A fair witness to what is happening all around, with no personal vantage point. Being a truth vessel–perfectly designed to hold the truth and nothing but. Uncomprehending of perversity and corruption, and naive to all radical distortion, but you are surpassingly aware of what is good and what is true and of the ways in which the greater laws are being played out in this world. Gifted in observing and appreciating how the Divine Will prevails, how the light penetrates the darkness. Simply there to be with the constructive and the upbuilding energies and forces. The pure idealist in the perfect position to be strictly transparent.
Rainer Maria Rilke
In energy we look like a tree upside down – our feet (roots) in heaven and the head on earth. This is incarnation and the task we have here on Earth. The more you get to know yourself the stronger the rooting and the tree. Living not by your worldly desires but by what your heart and divine will is telling you.
Seeing the Inside degree for the Mars-Saturn conjunction:
The mountain abode of a hermit.
A stronghold for secrets, hidden purposes, and inward streams to thrive and prevail. You live several lives in one, harboring the brightest, the darkest, the strangest, and the most wondrous worlds. Accustomed to the shadows and to meditation, prayer, and extraordinary discipline. Remaining in here forever. Absolutely uninvolved with surface affairs, no outer life whatsoever. But inwardly deep, intense, and overwhelmingly driven. Following through on ancient vows. A grim, heavy, somber tone. The capacity for root transformation and extraordinary realization. Your central focus is to be with God in the silence steadfastly, and there is nothing else that comes even close to feeling all the way through, on and true.
it is perfectly clear, that staying the hermit up up in the sky is not the meaning of our incarnation. The hermit, in this context I see it as spirit, is supposed to come down the hill into the vessel of the body. The perfect state of being.
As Emily Trinkaus write:
…our ancestors knew that heaven is right here on Earth, that our bodies are sacred vessels for spirit, that all matter is inherently infused with the divine. Neptune in Pisces (2011-2025) wants to dissolve the moldy old Piscean-Age paradigm that says god and heaven are somewhere way out there and your body is sinful and dirty.
Had to think about a dream I once had:
Got the key for a brand-new mobile snack bar and we had a party to celebrate. There was a puppet hanging on the wall, upside down, and I repeatedly tried to turn it around but my Grandmother told me to stop because this was going to happen much later.
When seeing the upside down tree in people during healings and remembering that in shaman tradition this is also known, I understood my dream.
I remembered the dream when reading the inside degree of 2 Virgo and it got new meaning with this New Moon.
When we die, the tree is turned around….
Therefore, the possibility to bury your ashes and plant a tree on the spot, is a good one. Needless to say that I prefer my ashes scattered into the ocean – returning to the eternal waters. By doing so, I probably will reach some tree as rain.
