Colourful Heart – The New Moon and Eclipse in Pisces 9th March 2016 – Agent Ei – Andrew Smith
She drew a deep breath. The speckled ebony sky gradually lightened and the illumination of stars got languidly lustreless as they started to hide their brightness as if someone more luminous was about to arrive. The air had yet a hint about it of dawn as the first orange hued rays appeared on the skyline, penetrating through the clouds. Resembling a prism, bright streaks of red, pink, and orange slowly overcame the dark blue and purple of the twilight sky as the yellow shining sun started rising from the ground. All the colours blended perfectly into each other filling the sky with mighty colours of red and splashed the clouds with endless rays of pink. It was bright and mesmerising as it invited her to stare, deep into the horizon.
The sparkling sun started slowly rising up the scarlet skyline letting the soft amber glow of the sunrise pour through her fingers and onto her upturned face. Transfixed as she watched the spreading radiance carpet the heavens, awe and wonder open the door of her heart. Hearing the melody within this musical silence, tears gently trickle down her cheeks.
“Are you okay, Little Spirit?”, she hears a voice whisper
“Why does it hurt so much?” she replies breathlessly.
“Yes. I feel I could die of astonishment at just how much grace is here, yet no-one sees these soft warming rays or hears the sonorous murmuring of love strengthening our spirits as its light spreads through our hearts.”
“The beloved is pouring colours throughout this dimension so that she may evoke her qualities in your body and through your senses.”
“But I feel sad, not happy”
“Everything is coloured by a certain fragrance of sadness, Little Spirit, but it is a sadness your mind could never know for it has nothing to do with something being missing. It has nothing to do with fragrant ambrosia that keeps many around you asleep to the lucidity of colour that bathes and permeates your Earth. If you look through the sadness that is pouring out of your overflowing heart, it is because you are seeing that love continues to ask you to feel more.”
“But I am burning up inside and it hurts”
“That is because you are awakening to the truth of who you are and where you reside; that is because your heart is opening further and deeper than before; that is because you care so much and want others to see what you see and feel what you feel. You are willing to give your heart to others and to this world, for you are seeing that this is why you have come here.
“Always remember to trust the light, Little Spirit. The orange and the red in the morning sky, if you let it come inside, might take you to the ground. New colours are emerging, lightening the way and opening consciousness further. There exists a purple that just come into being; give everything to know it. A new day had come, new possibilities, a fresh page yet to be written.”
Turning once again to face the softening dawn, feeling the delicate air kiss her skin, bending down, Little Spirit removed her shoes. Walking barefoot over the ground towards the ocean in the burgeoning light, breathing deeply the colours that shimmered in the golden path from the shore to the horizon, she let the moment sink in. Soothed to her core from where the nascent beams touched her skin, she felt hope once again return as she was left with the thought “Under the sun, we are all the same”.
Do you believe in yourself and the limitless pathways that exist within you, hungrily waiting for you to explore them? Do you believe in your own abundance and have actively embraced the enemies of your soul who gleefully planted ivy around your hopes and creativity in an attempt to strangle your joy? Do you live in complete alignment with the beliefs you have slowly developed as you have sought to break from the fetter chains that have bound you to someone else’s opinion of reality or have egoic distractions seized you, dampening your spirit rendering you impotent to the fecund potential of your unique being?
Furthermore, if you believe that you are limitless and utterly abundant, does your daily life and your attitude towards those in your life, respectfully embody that ideal or is there a discontinuity between what you speak of and how you live?
These are some of the questions that have naturally arisen within those souls who have sought to divine insights into the choices that they need to make within my consulting room over the past two weeks as the Moon has been waning into her embrace with the Sun ahead of this powerful imaginal Solar Eclipse and Piscean New Moon. And it saddens me that you have been taught not to believe in yourself; that you have nothing to contribute to the world; that you are not unique; that you should be embarrassed to express who you are; that you need to conform to hollow standards that many have not really thought through, yet repeat like parrots just because that is how it has always been. It is such a shame that you have amassed numerous false beliefs about yourself that serves merely to hurt or wound your heart and hold you back from being true to the choices that you made prior to this incarnation to manifest with the energetic signatures that make up your cosmic DNA.
Yet, the current stormy cosmic weather has brought into focus many of those false beliefs in recent weeks, despite the embattled world waging an ideological war in an attempt to further enslave you. If you listen to the silent music gently soothing your soul, there is a massive release taking place as your unique spirit is being freed and liberated from any emotional constraints that have been adopted as you have been socialised to live within your limitations and not extend yourself into your world, exposing your raw and vulnerable heart.
During this super new Moon, an even bigger emotional surge is being created, facilitating the creation of something new being born within you. With every birth is a death and everything you thought you needed has the opportunity to fall away. In the days leading up to the embrace of the Luminaries, what it is being replaced with is not yet clear as you are between the worlds, dancing between broken and whole, with light and dark being weaved within you. You can feel that things will not be the same but still do not know what is truly being asked of you. This unknowing groundless ground is your home, a home where creativity and the intelligence are overwhelming, if you can step away from control and embrace the oceanic tide that constantly vacillates.
As you wait for the energetic climate to once again create those boundless conditions that can free you from the compartmentalisation of your everyday life and the longings of your soul, let me ask you what have you to lose by letting loose the raw emotion that guides and directs your ability to create your reality? What stops you hearing with your heart and trusting what images arise within your inner eye?
“The more light you allow within you, the brighter the world you live in will be.” ~Shakti Gawain
You were born with an Inner Light, yet that seed sown in your consciousness may not have taken root or come to fruition yet. You have been offered guidance and teaching but may not as yet integrated that wisdom due to distractions or indeed willingness to ‘see’ what has been offered as beneficial. Consequently your Light may have been diluted or dimmed, even if you have been supported.
As a portal is opened between this plane of consciousness and the gOdhead, the power of your heart and the light that ever dwells within, is being further illuminated offering you a chance to physically understand how far along are you in your journey back to Source consciousness and how much work have you invested in purifying your inner Light. This cleansing lunation offers you the chance to heal any pattern that has restricted your confidence and esteem.
When you glow, people are attracted to you. Those people will have opinions about you and will also want to pull from you, so that your light can help them. That is when the need for discernment arises. That is not judgement. Just recognising what is good for your Light and what is not. There is no room for fear here. Just knowing yourself and allowing yourself grow into those things that nourish the Light within you. There will be a lot of opinions on what that should be, so do take the time back to consider what energises your Soul and dive blindly and headlong into those activities.
During this time you are called to receive Light transmission and to awaken to your own inner light, despite the distractions and busyness around you; despite your egoic challenges and trappings of self-esteem and self-judgement. This is a critical time in your ability to integrate your Light and purify yourself so that you can shine in your own authentic manner, free from the constraints of what you think you should do or be. To receive the teachings you must prepare your consciousness, purify and consecrate yourself to Spirit of emotion and to the colours that carry knowledge and consciousness. To do that need alone time and time to meditate, to be still and to focus on your inner flame.
Awakening does not mean that you grow immune to the mundane concerns of the material world or to the dramas of those enslaved by the lower chakras. Awakening opens your heart further and increases your vulnerability as you feel deeper and experience the subtle vibrational emanations of nature and life. Like Little Spirit, you are seeing that love continues to ask you to feel more and to bare witness to the true potential of your life. Remember that love is what you are born with. Fear is what you have learned. As you encounter the power of your heart, as joy penetrates your essence, opening up your heart-centre more tangibly, the unlearning of fear and prejudice and the acceptance of Love in your heart is central to the spiritual dimension of this planetary coupling. So take the opportunity to remember love whenever it presents itself. As you stare into the rising sun on the morn of this Piscean lunation, allow its “rays” burn into your heart. Don’t look away and breathe in the beautiful pink and orange colour adorning the sky. Open yourself and let love penetrate you to your core.
Thank you for taking the time to read or listen to these lunation thoughts.

Agent Ei- Andrew Smith
Just a few words about my background, I’ve been a full time professional astrologer located in the Republic of Ireland since 1995, having stumbled across astrology in my last year reading Natural Sciences in 1993, where I specialized in Geography. I’ve been blessed by the generosity of both my national and international clientele who have supported my work through referrals. Consequently, I have no website but I do have a presence on Facebook and my client orientated newsletter is carried on numerous websites.
Aside from my client focused work, I have worked for many years within the corporate world as an astrologer, although I have recently moved away from this side of my professional practise. I run weekly classes and monthly workshops (for non-astrologers) in Ireland, and was invited to edit and produce the book Transpersonal Astrology: Explorations at the Frontier, by Eric Meyers and Armand Diaz. I have been previously published in the Astrological Journal and am the feature writer for Positive Life Magazine, a quarterly holistic magazine in Ireland and on the web.
If I was to describe my work for other astrologers, I would be a humanistic, psycho-spiritually orientated in my practice. My focus within my practice is to support the spiritual and psychological growth of my clients by helping them understand their choices and energetic patterns imbued within the fabric of their being. The merging of both space and time are central focal points of my work and astro-cartography, the focus of my talk on this forum, is a perspective that I see as essential in understanding the process of growth within this plane of consciousness.
