Today’s full moon lunar eclipse in Pisces brings the Moon, Neptune, and Chiron together to dissolve the last vestiges of some old wound or self-image you’ve been carrying around for, like, lifetimes.
You know what it is – some belief you have about yourself that isn’t reflective of who you truly are on the inside. It’s an image, an avatar, or some brand that others (in this life or another) have painted on you, over you, obscuring your authentic self.
Perhaps that version of you served their purposes best, or perhaps it served a larger community or tribe to have you branded in such a way. That brand (yes, think too of the way slaves have been branded, or cattle) kept you tied to that group or identity no matter how far you went to outrun it and start over.
Neptune, King of the sea, has been working on you for several years. He’s been surfing the waves and diving to the depths during his homecoming in Pisces, rearranging treasures and building new undersea temples. In new configurations, your old self has no place. Salt water washes away even the most stubborn tattoos, especially the old karmic kind.
Full moons rule endings and eclipses herald major turning points in your life. Endings, beginnings, big shifts in internal direction and outward paths. New people, ideas, projects, or maybe just a lighter step, a lighter heart.
Are you ready to let go of that old brand that you’ve been living with?
Let Neptune wash that image away, dissolving it in the rocky undertow, churning it down to fine grains of sand.
As you step out of the sea, some part of you raw from the threshing, drop to the sand and worship the solid ground underneath you. The Sun is here, drying you off. Showing you the landscape. Giving you tools to work with, even if they’re new and unwieldy for you.
You’ve made it through the eclipse portal.
This isn’t the same terrain you’ve walked before.
You’re way out of your comfort zone. Let the discomfort carry you forward, and onward, deeper into your true self. It’s ok to stumble and wander. Without the tether of that old brand, you’re free to explore.
