PASSIVE – Moon in Pisces, laboratory process of Projection – emotionally instinctive
I have found that Projection is usually described as the alchemist casting the Philosopher’s Stone powder onto a liquefied metal to bring about a transmutation. The projected energy of the Alchemist is the spark that initiates the process. Projection is a very relaxed and receptive application of personal awareness in the area of feeling creative energy as an aside to thinking.
Sidereal astrology is about what’s ‘in the air’ for us as individuals.*
A good time to: lead with your gut; when you feel inspired, the lead will probably change and go (project) on to the next person who feels inspired – think static electricity.
Challenges: tug to vanish; wanting to get a way for awhile, likely by yourself. (This may not be a challenge if you can actually do it and relax.)
Balance: nature; get out and feel the weather once in a while. Getting some Sun on your face can be a bonus, barring a sensitivity, it charges us up a little.

Intuitively picking the best date is part of the art of Alchemy,
and Astrology (sidereal) can generally enrich your intuition.

* Sidereal astrology, most commonly used in Eastern societies, is based on the actual positions of the Stars. This provides knowledge about us as individuals – a way to see ourselves. It brings a reference point for understanding our possible strengths and weaknesses; which can then be related to our work and relationships.
