Listen to the Entire Video
Well, greetings and welcome to the Musical Astrologer, and as you can tell my old camera is not working, and I'm trying something new with my I-Pad, so this might be a new experience. And this is a definitely a Mercury Retrograde experience, as it affects a lot of communication and electronic equipment, and especially computers!
And I'm late getting this video out - this is the Full Moon in Libra - the "I" versus "We" axis. And I am playing a song in the background called "Skin" which is from my album "Serenity". Remember the Full Moon is always the time when the Sun and the Moon are in opposite signs, and this time the Sun is still in Aries, which we saw last time is this symbol, and the Moon is in the sign of Libra. Libra is the opposite of Aries, so whenever the Full Moon happens it's in the opposite sign from the Sun in Aries, the Ram, and the Moon in Libra - So, it's the Aries Statement "I am" vs. the Libra Statement "We are", which is a axis of individuality versus the collective consciousness. Aries rules the First House of Identity, and Libra rules the Seventh House, of Relationships and Partnerships. So it's a time when we look at ourselves versus the other people, but there's a lot of focus on the collective conscious right now.
And I've been noticing for example on my I-Pad there's an app in the I-store which is a
meditation instrument -- it's called "Insight Timer" -- and when you meditate for about 10 or 20 minutes, you can find out who meditated with you in the neighborhood that you're in, or around you, and it's really fascinating, and there's thousands of people who use that app, so that's a form of collective consciousness.
And also this week, we started a 21-day meditation experience with Oprah Winfrey and Deepak Chopra, on meditating every day on the idea of Hope - so I just hope you guys
will investigate these kinds of things, and not let the chaos and drama that's going on in the world affect you so much. Of course it's hard not be affected if you watch the news but I try not to watch the news too often.
And the Full Moon, of course is taking place on Tuesday, April 11th, at 2:08 AM EST.
But we're a little bit late -- I like to get the Full Moon out before it happens, but I'm pretty sure you've been experiencing it -- it's just a lot of intense energy that happens
during a Full Moon, and the other things that are happening in the sky is too much to explain, but there's a lot of friction in the air, (caused by Uranus in Aries and squares to Pluto in Capricorn) there's a lot of drama and intensity, so just be sure to spend as much time in quiet meditation as possible.
And I'm going to play a little bit of a song. It's called "Skin" and you can find it on my
Website. Have a wonderful Full Moon for the next 2 weeks - God Bless!
Listen to "Skin"
A Quiet Ache
Where all the longing begins…
Our Souls ---
With so much ---
Overwhelming depth of feeling within…
This flesh and blood
This empty space
This spark of life,
Holy place ---
Is covered by something so fragile and thin.
When You and I
Are open wide
We share a place in this world
A human form – A spirit bound up with skin.
You’re smooth as silk
You’re tough as nails
An armor made out of scales
A thousand nerves that are embedded within.
You’re soft as fur
You’re hard as stone
Sometimes I feel so alone
Imprisoned by these ancient walls made of skin.
Why can’t this life just be free
Of little fences we all have to attend?
And who we are
And what we’d be
And all these identities
Would be a part of a unique cosmic blend.
The Sun and Wind
The years of pain
Have left their mark once again
A map of life on something so paper thin.
A furrowed brow,
A dimpled chin
And all the scars hid within
Create a beauty so much deeper than skin.
It’s where you end
And I begin
It’s where these old wounds can mend
And we can finally live in peace in our skin.
So I will come
To you again
And open up – let you in
And feel the warmth and tenderness of your skin.
La, la, la, la to fade…
