Monday’s Full Moon in Pisces

“I believe deeply that we must find, all of us together, a new spirituality.” Dalai Lama

Monday’s Full Moon is at 16 degrees of Pisces and one of the Sabian symbols associated with this degree is, ” In a quiet moment, a creative individual experiences the flow of inspiration.”

For many people the past few weeks have been a trying time in terms of the need to face challenges and overcome obstacles. With Pluto’s trine to the Sun it is now a good time for regeneration and reclaiming lost strength and vitality. Pluto’s influence bodes well for physical strength and renewed courage.

The Full Moon is conjunct Chiron – the asteroid of the Wounded Healer. Much healing can occur at this time through accessing a higher, more inspired level of perception. A greater level of wholeness can be attained through the healing of fragmented parts of the self.

There is an old story about a woman out walking who came upon two stone cutters. She asked one what he was doing and he replied. “I am squaring the stone.” She asked the other and he said,” I am building a cathedral.”

Mars Enters Scorpio

“Hark, now hear the sailors cry
Smell the sea and feel the sky
Let your soul and spirit fly into the mystic…” Van Morrison, Into the Mystic
Life may indeed be feeling more mystical as we head into Friday’s Full Moon in Pisces on 8/31. Today Mars enters its home sign of Scorpio and sextiles the Sun in Virgo. These aspects bode well for an energized start – particularly one which involves pragmatic details and planning for creative or spiritual endeavors and projects. It is a good time to harness the energy and move forward.
Neptune will oppose the Sun at the time of the Full Moon and there can be a certain nebulous quality to our mundane perceptions  now  – as if we tumbled down the rabbit hole with Alice – or as if life itself is playing sleight of hand tricks upon us.  This influence is transitory.
