God Anpu (Anubis, Ampu, Inpu, Ienpw, Imeut), the protector of Auset (Isis), was originally the God of the Dead before Ausar (Osiris) took over his position. Anubis is often referred to as the son of Nebthet (Nephthys) and Ausar.
NTR Anpu was represented as a man with a head of a jackal. He is depicted this way to represent his position as the God of the Dead. He is seldom shown as fully-human, but he is depicted in the Temple of Abydos of Rameses II as so. On the other hand, there is a statue of Anubis as a full jackal in the tomb of Tutankhamun.
Anpu is the guardian of the underworld and oversees mummification. It is His duty to find lost souls wandering cemeteries and to help guide them through the realm of the dead until they can persuade Sekhmet to let them into the valley of immortality.
It is Anpu’s task to test a soul’s faith and its knowledge of the KMT NTRW. Anpu placed the soul’s heart on the Scales of Justice during the Weighing of the Heart – where hearts were weighed against the Continue reading

New Moon in Pisces, March 9th, 2016 – Wu Wei
By Aeternalight, 14 February 2016
Wu Wei is one of the most important (if not the most important) tenets in Taoism; this Chinese expression can be loosely translated as “non action” or “non doing” – a mode of consciousness that seems perfectly suited to the yielding, transcendent nature of Pisces.
Taoist philosophy recognizes that the Universe works harmoniously according to a natural order governed by unalterable laws; Wu Wei, which is not to be mistaken for inertia or passivity, is the art of effortlessly, graciously swimming with this current – ultimately becoming vessels of the Tao itself, thus responding to life in the most spontaneous way possible.

A Dark Moon, A Dark Sun, a Full House in Pisces
By Sarah Fuhro, March 4 2016 [Edited]
A meeting has been called in the sign of Pisces. Gathered together are Mercury, the messenger; Neptune, the visionary; Ceres, the earth mother; the new Moon, queen of cycles; the Sun, a king in eclipse; Chiron, the wounded healer; and the South Node in Pisces, the location and timing of this solar/lunar event.
The flavor of this stellar event is Pisces; the theme is compassion, intuition, mystical knowledge, music, and addiction to what can’t be seen, but can only be felt: A Love Supreme. [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=clC6cgoh1sU] John Coltrane’s opus, A Love Supreme sets the tone for this total solar eclipse on Tuesday, March 8. Continue reading
Mercury in Pisces
By Kelly Fox [Edited]
DO: Carry a pocket calendar to help you make dates and excuses.
DON’T: Run away or hide from your problems.
Pisces Mercury is a highly impressionable and artistic planetary influence that is as slippery as water in your hands. Not particularly prone to logical processes, this period brings forth an imaginative, ethereal quality to your way of thinking, especially useful for artistic endeavors such as music, art, or poetry. You yearn for things that nurture your mind and soul.
Highly sensitive to any kind of criticism, you may want to surround yourself with calming sounds and pleasant pictures. Your dreams may be more vivid than usual, you may find answers from otherworldly realms that you would normally not be open to. Your sensitivity to life around you may be an experience that delights you, or makes you a little apprehensive. Continue reading
Water Sign Compatibility: What Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces Want You to Know
As well as being notoriously sensitive, water sign people are highly emotional, deeply romantic and very changeable (or moody, depending on your point of view!), but their beautiful, kind natures can also hide a mass of insecurities which a lover needs to be aware of.
Although Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces all share these water sign traits, they are of different astrological modes.
Cancer, for example, is a cardinal water sign. Cardinal signs are initiators and leaders, impulsive and dynamic. In Cancer, this mode of action is expressed emotionally, through the heart. You’ll find Cancer to be the mother figure of the zodiac, always first to help anyone in need, first to shed tears for someone but also first to take practical steps to deal with the crisis. Cancer doesn’t sit around and wallow in his or her emotions, but instead takes active charge of them. In a compatibility reading, we might say that Cancer is the toughest of the water signs, but it’s an inner toughness, hidden well behind a soft and vulnerable exterior. Continue reading
