The Sun is now in Virgo and the full Moon is in Pisces.
Virgo’s ruler, Mercury, has resumed forward motion on Leo, moving into Virgo on 5 September.
Mars goes direct on August 27th and we can prepare to see all of that inner reclaiming and reviewing and renovating that we’ve been working on all summer manifest shiny and redone on the outer.
At the full Pisces Moon we have a grand earth trine: Uranus at 2 degrees Taurus retrograde, Saturn at 3 degrees Capricorn retrograde, and the Sun at 4 degrees of Virgo.
There is a sextile from Uranus and Saturn to the full Moon, as well.
One could do a meditation within the triangle of the Earth signs, with the Moon up above, calibrating the vibrations of the earth and water in the physical body. Uranus can bring the cosmic into the physical at this time as well.
With Saturn and Uranus retrograde, let the inner be the guide.
There is still much to be found in the inner depths.
Let that which no longer matches your vibrations float downstream.
This meditative bath will prepare the self on all levels for Mars’ return to forward motion. Our inner desire nature has been in review. They can begin to be released as Mars moves through the latter degrees of Capricorn and into Aquarius on 10 September.
Pisces is the last sign of the Zodiac.
It holds all of the energy of all the signs and has understanding of each.
A reflection of the past year, and a review of how life has unfolded since the last Pisces full Moon on September 6, 2017 can be helpful now.
Some dreams wishes hopes and desires have likely been made manifest since last year at this time – from a new pair of hiking shoes, to an evolved spiritual practice, to a refined way of relating to the self and others.
Reflection on what has manifested that feels good and likewise on that which has been a confirmation of what we don’t want in our lives are both useful.
It is easier, at this time, to connect with the entire pool of consciousness and bring into the everyday mind—Mercury-ruled Virgo— the Truth of our ability to attract what we want while in human form.
Virgos like to clean house and organize thoughts and things so that there is room for manifestation of what is new and appropriate in the here and now.
Virgo knows how to bring dreams and goals into the actual life. It knows the launch pad can’t have a bunch of old cans and newspapers lying around, or the rocket will catch fire from the detritus and never leave the ground.
What others want for you is not the key here. Taurus in Uranus, in its trine to Saturn is moving away from the old rule book on what life should look like – from parents, religion, corporations and advertisers. It also may turn its back on how social media defines what a successful/enlightened life can look like, and says “yah, thanks for the ideas, my higher self and I have got it from here. Keeping the focus on the self in Virgo is key. It wants to see what helps the ego and personality and soul to individuate and what isn’t necessary for growth. Keep what works and release the rest. Make room and shine up what you are keeping, honoring that which does continue to serve.
Virgo can get snagged by its own ideas of being good enough. Start from where you are with Virgo Sun and gather all the love and compassion for your self from the big Pisces full Moon shining down on you.
Connect with your own vibration, let go of barnacles of doubt and seaweed tangles of dreams that no longer suit, and allow the bigger stream of your own consciousness to open up and guide the way.
Virgo knows exactly how to follow the path, on Earth, of cosmic consciousness.
Bring snacks and a flashlight.
Virgo is ever practical.
Lots of love,
