Pisces ~Letting Go and Finding Flow

The Sun entered Pisces a few days ago. The symbol for Pisces is two fish swimming in opposite directions. This is the sign of the ocean, high creativity, imagination, spirituality and dreams. Things are morphy in the territory Pisces oversees. This is the last sign of the astrological year and the final month of winter, when old forms are ‘laid to rest’ so something new can be born with the spring. As we open our hearts and let go of what has been, our bodies recycle the rich, ripe compost of past experiences and transform our lives.

This picture was taken by Cadence of Cadencia Photography on the final morning of the hoop dance retreat I attended in Hawaii, in January. Twenty-seven women had just spent a week hooping, doing yoga, sharing meals, most of us sleeping under the same roof, and finally, doing a guided sunrise meditation on the last morning. We had shared so much it was hard to imagine this life-changing retreat ending. I watched the sun come into view, then closed my eyes and took a deep breath of ocean-fueled air. As I let it out salty tears began to flow. Waves of gratitude, joy, love and great sadness that it was over rose and fell. I looked around to see that I was not the only one.

And then I heard the voice in my head answering my unspoken protest. “Only through letting go can you know what this time was really about and reap the bounty of benefits it has seeded in your experience. To hold on is to lose all of that.” This retreat felt magical because the people, activities and elements came together and interacted in a dynamic dance. Everyone has had those times of heightened energy and joyful interaction that inevitably come to an end. If we can shift gears, afterward and allow ourselves a period of rest and recovery the process of integration will take place.

In this past month since the retreat ended I craved sleep, spent time in quiet contemplation and shied away from too much activity that would take me out of myself. During this time, I recovered precious pieces of myself that I had long ago abandoned. The retreat sparked an unexpected awakening and re-membering of my life.

Tomorrow is the Pisces New Moon. Time for fresh starts and new creative projects. Just don’t be surprised if things change as you go along. Pisces is all about dancing with the Divine and going with the flow. Where it will take you, nobody knows. As the old song says, ‘The best things happen when you’re dancing…’ Enjoy!

With an ocean of Love,
Jodi
