Dreamy new moon energy continues with an invitation to dive into our inner worlds.

Today’s Rock Star Oracle is Robert Smith / Reflection. Combined with the Page of Staffs, it guides us to look inward at our own vast personal landscape.

This new moon has moved into Aries where it is conjunct the minor planet / comet Chiron. In astrology, Chiron is nicknamed the “wounded warrior” and it’s placement in your natal chart may indicate where your needs were not met in childhood. It may also indicate an area of inherited (epigenetic) trauma.

This moon-Chiron conjunction is also sextile Mars in Taurus and Saturn in Aquarius.

We may be motivated to confront some long dormant issues from youth that have recently come to light.

We may also be ready to change our habits or behaviors to cast off old and outdated coping strategies that served to protect in youth but are actually impeding our emotional growth as adults.

Transits with Chiron are an opportunity to forgive hurts we may have repressed in order to survive. When these dormant feelings are revealed, there is an invitation to heal.

You may be able to harness the energy of this changing season and cycle to transform those parts of yourself that are ready to be experienced and explored.

Today the Page of Wands invites us to explore our inner and outer worlds before launching into action.

The sun has moved from the airy ideas of Aquarius into the dreamy water of Pisces. Depending on your personal astrology, the dreamy, free floating Pisces energy can be comforting, confusing, or overwhelming. Do you have a lot of water signs in your birth chart? Or are you more of an earth, air, or fire baby?

Pisces asks us to consider our feelings deeply, and from many perspectives. While fire signs take action, air signs think and discuss, and earth signs make a big pot of soup to process feelings, water signs just dive right into the full range of human emotion. By exploring all the emotions present within, they gain clarity about how they feel and take action (or not, lol) accordingly.

This is the dream time of the zodiac, the time to dip our feet in the flowing waters of subconscious desire. During Aquarius we started to voice our ideas and to discuss and write more clearly about restructuring society.

The Pisces sun asks, how do we feel about these ideas? How can we reconcile our fear of the unknown with our desire for change? How can we move forward in compassion, considering our own needs and the needs of others less fortunate, prioritizing people over profit?

Centring our social justice work in love is one way to use emotion to drive change.

“The transformative power of love is not fully embraced in our society because we often wrongly believe that torment and anguish are our ‘natural’ condition.”
-bell hooks

We don’t yet believe that we are worthy of love outside of the consumer matrix, so we disregard the emotions that may actually be used to guide our way forward. Words will not be enough to transform our world; we must also act in alignment with our beliefs and values instead of tailoring our deepest desires to meet the existing constraints of an oppressive society.

Today’s cards are full of childlike energy.

The Page of Wands is another harbinger of new beginnings. They represent enthusiasm, excitement, creativity and exploration.

This Page asks you to look at your projects and responsibilities with the eyes of a child. What do children bring to their “work?”

Little ones are innocent, curious, open to new ideas, interested in how things work, don’t make assumptions, rarely have expected outcomes, are OK not being in control, and prioritize fun and play when making decisions.

Of course kids can also create chaos as a form of personal power, be resistant to change, and freak out when unexpected events occur.

Being a kid is hard work, but it is also a time of life that is infused with miracles and magic.

Personally I think that kids are taken for granted in American society. We love to talk about how they need to be “protected and saved” yet when young people speak up and assert their needs or suggest there might be a better way they are often silenced and marginalized because they are outside of the capitalist structure, where value is tied to the market. If we really wanted to center American life around children, well… let’s just say that functioning daycare is the least of our problems.

I offer you these ideas as a meditation on your idea of “childhood.” What might it mean for you to be more childlike in your approach?

On the flip side, where are you infantilizing young folks or simply new ideas as not being wise enough or mature enough to take seriously?
