A lunation that takes us from Aquarius to Pisces. Uranus to Neptune. the film “I Origins” comes to mind, written and directed by Mike Cahill, who also gave us “Another Earth“ and other gems which confronts us with the question of the boundary between Science and the World of Intuition and the Mystery. Aquarius is the penultimate sign and Pisces the last. Aquarius speaks of technology, advances in Science and PISCES, dwells in the Intuition and the Ineffable. Aquarius needs clarity, and Pisces lives in fog, where nothing is seen with complete clarity, but it is connected to other dimensions than our rational brain, has difficulties with decoding. Aquarius wants to explain the Mystery and Pisces lives in it.
Mercury and Vesta, are also in the Aquarius, but Chiron, Neptune, Venus and Mars are in PISCES, strengthening this struggle between the rational and the irrational. In the film, the main character, who is a scientist, is surrounded by two women, a scientist and an esoteric and mysterious beauty with magical eyes, at one point he says: “I am a scientist, I need data,” but the reality is that in the Piscean world, data is irrelevant, because what it is, it is, says Pisces, even if Science denies it or has not yet find the equation to explain it.
Astrology, seems to be the “bridge” that these two signs need, to contact one another. While many of the astrological principles are a mystery, since astrologers can check daily the validity of this science, as the more efficient and important system of symbols we have, for self-knowledge and the re-connection of the individual with the Cosmic purpose, we do not have very clear “how” it works and to find that answer, we need Science, and Quantum Physics seems to be bringing us closer and closer to that answer. This lunation also occurs at the midpoint between the Urano-Pluto which will have its last meeting on March 15. We all know what has happened on Earth since this square started in 2010, although in the current signs in 2012. We know that in the year 2008 when Pluto entered Capricorn, the Lehman Brothers firm “fell”, triggering the global financial Crisis we all have been trying to endure for the past 6 years now. We also know that the day that Uranus entered Aries, the Tsunami in Japan occurred, with the subsequent explosion of the atomic plant in Fukushima. This square has forced us all to change, but especially the Cardinals signs: Aries-Cancer-Libra-Capricornio. We had to say goodbye to many situations and people who meant a lot in our lives. It has transformed us in a convincing manner and it is not finished yet.

This new moon in Aquarius, find us with the challenge of Isis, an eloquent theme of the need to find a bridge between scientific knowledge and our beliefs. The more we move away from Science, the easier it becomes to be convinced of anything by a character more or less eloquent and charismatic, without having the need to check if what he says is true or not. We simply believe it and repeat it to others. Our need to relegate, and connect through our beliefs continues to lead us to war. There has to be a more constructive way of connecting with the Divine, which is the most basic of human needs, after survival and perpetuate the species. Our need to find Gods that will relieve us from this feeling of insignificance, that invade us when we become conscious of the fragility, and the irrelevance of a human life, no matter what they have done in life.
