Full Moon in Pisces, September 15, 2008

Pisces Moon risingThe Full Moon next Monday promises to be a real zinger at 22°54′ Pisces, with Uranus conjoining it and Pluto in Sagittarius forming a T-square. It’s “batten down the hatches” time!

By the time the Moon is full, both Jupiter and Pluto will have returned direct and started to pick up speed. Sagittarius and Scorpio folk in particular may be getting hints that matters held in stasis over the past few months are beginning to see movement, as Jupiter and Pluto rule those signs, respectively. Adding to the movement is the continuing trine from Saturn in Virgo, so look where Jupiter is currently falling in your chart to see what’s breaking loose for you. It’s entirely possible that things will fall into place smoothly and easily under the influence of the trine. Let’s hope so, anyway.

Pluto is another matter. The T-square with the Sun, Moon, and Uranus is more likely to create some dramatic effects, because any time Uranus is on the playing field, he electrifies events. Pluto asks us to let go of what is dead or dying in our lives, and if we have not been paying attention up to this point, we will have far less choice in the matter now. For some reason, the thought popping into my mind about this pattern has to do with accepting loss. In doing so, we ultimately gain, but there will be a price (mostly because human beings tend to undervalue freely given gifts). If we allow ourselves to let go gracefully in an open-handed manner and forgive ourselves for holding on so tightly in the first place, we will navigate through this fine.

The Moon-Uranus conjunction in Pisces is closely semi-sextile Neptune in Aquarius, emphasizing the mutual reception between Uranus and Neptune. The Moon provides access to our emotions and unconscious motivations, and at this time we may be better able to tap into the archetypes represented by Uranus and Neptune. Service to others with compassion and appreciation for what makes each of us unique is a good starting point. Taking time to consider how we may be of service is never a waste of time.

On a more mundane level, we have a nice tight stellium in Libra of Venus, Mercury, and Mars. It sure doesn’t hurt to have sympathetic Neptune, the higher octave expression of Venus, trine to this stellium. This is the perfect time to find the right words to heal the atmosphere of divisiveness possibly brought about by Mars in Libra’s tendency to use words like weapons and take the other side of a disagreement just because it can. Mars is not comfortable in Libra, the sign of his detriment. But don’t worry, because on October 4, he will enter Scorpio, the sign he co-rules with Pluto.

For this Full Moon, the Sabian Symbol for 23 Pisces is, A materializing medium giving a séance, with a keyword SUBSTANTIATION. More than anything, this connects with the mutable T -square, acknowledging the need to surrender to our higher purpose in order to become “unstuck” on our path to becoming our most authentic self. In order to manifest something new in one’s life, there has to be space available, and it’s far better to do this consciously and with awareness.

The Sabian Symbol for the Sun is 23 Virgo is, A lion tamer displays his skill and character, with keywords RESOLUTENESS and PATIENCE. This is perfect fit with the current trine between Saturn in Virgo and Jupiter in Capricorn, where earth sign persistence and willingness to tame one’s vital energies to achieve a goal is rewarded. We also are reminded to have faith and courage in our abilities.

We are standing on the threshold of a period of profound change brought about by Saturn opposing Uranus, and this Full Moon on the Virgo-Pisces axis gives us an opportunity to glimpse how this opposition may affect us personally. It is also a great time to remind ourselves that practicing kindness and behaving in a thoughtful manner to all we encounter is no bad thing, because Uranus is the biggest pot-stirrer there is!

    Oh yes, you’re very right. I can hear again. It gets better every day, I think.

    YAY, Joe!!! That is the best news yet! Let’s hope your hearing will continue to steadily improve from here on out. Bet it feels like you have your life back once more. One thing though, this experience has also given you great insight into what it’s like to live in the deaf world, hasn’t it.

    Well done Neith! well done.

    I’m reading AA confirmed 4:40PM in Sandpoint Id from multiple sources…you probably have that now too..
    Which gives her a Leo rising and an Aquarian moon.

    Hey Neith! long time no see! I think this full moon will be big for me. My natal moon is at 20 degrees of Pisces, with Uranus right on it, plus my sun & asc at 26 & 27 degrees of Sag with Pluto making it’s last hurrah, and jupiter running through my first house. Since Pluto & Jupiter turned direct, I’ve been absolutely exhausted, this could be because of my job ( which I’ve just given my 2 weeks notice to) and the fact that I’ve just started my masters degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine!
    Completely overwhelmed, but very happy in some respects. I am happy to be quitting my job, that has been a major energy drain for the past month, and I am having a lot of fun in school despite feeling behind. Since the planets tuned direct I’ve taken some initiative with my life and have set into motion what I’ve been wanting to do all summer… ie redecorating my room, getting a new laptop, and investing in my personal appearance. ( Jupiter transiting the 1st) I am hoping the intensity of all the direct energy will even out and I’ll be able to enjoy a night of uninterrupted sleep.

    Any insight? ( 12/18/1985 Jamaica, NY 7:24am)

    Hey tseka!

    Thanks!! I’m learning by doing here . . .

    Yes, I’ve seen that one but with Neptune transiting her Sun exact, I still have the feeling there is more info going to come to light.

    Hey Janelle!!

    From the sounds of it your life is very, very busy. Choosing to leave a job you were not happy at is a classic Uranus transit move. Uranus giving you the boost you needed to make the change.

    You do realize Uranus is far from finished with you yet, don’t you? It’s moving back to square your natal Uranus-Venus in November and then will make one more pass after it goes direct. Pluto will move back into Capricorn just about the time Uranus turns direct in late November and that may be a time you feel more solid about what your chosen direction too.

    Know what you mean about the need for uninterrupted sleep! You have lots in your 12th house like I do and we need our dream time. :-)
