PISCES – VIRGO Full Moon (Sept 13) – Spiritual Harvest

11 Sep

Dear Ones,
What a Full Moon Wave has been building up!

Yes, the Full MOON will be in PISCES – late PISCES that-is, which also has a PISCES undertone (ask me about these decanates = segments in each sign if you wonder…).
And it comes with NEPTUNE aka Poseidon, Ruler of the Sea – and of PISCES, plus with LILITH (sorta) commonly known as ‘Wild Woman Archetype’ or rather: Our Wild & Free unconditioned Nature.

Wow, that’s a mouthful of alignments – Big Wave ‘material’ indeed.

And we’ve already seen in the meteo weather huge rogue waves, caused by Hurricane Dorian whose force was devastating on the Bahamas, having recently also reached Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. 

Thankfully, the ‘crest of the wave’ will be reached with the Full MOON in oceanic PISCES!

Great Wave of Kanagawa

So, what does the PISCES – VIRGO FULL MOON with all her ‘Entourage’ deliver astro-energetically ?

Many attributes.
Many factors involved.
  • FULL MOON with NEPTUNE & LILITH towards the end of PISCES
  • SUN with MARS, and MERCURY / VENUS (united on the FM day) towards the end of VIRGO
  • A Mutable T-square to JUPITER in SAG
  • It comes in a rare ‘Mystic Rectangle’ – a relief from the sharp T-square.
  • Very mutable, and the last day of 0 Planets in AIR signs
  • Friday the 13th – won’t correspond with a Full MOON again until 2049.
    Please find a myth debunking and Goddess honouring piece about that superstition in this article.
  • It’s the Harvest Moon 2019 – the closest FM to Fall Equinox (on Sept 23).
  • It catalyzes MERCURY & VENUS to enter LIBRA together, on Sept 14.
  • It catalyzes SATURN (a Harvest Planet) to go out of retro / direct again, on Sept 18.
  • It catalyzes the 3rd and final square 2019 between JUPITER & NEPTUNE, exact on Sept 21.
  • It catalyzes the Union of LILITH & NEPTUNE in PISCES, on Oct 1.

 

Harvest Moon

So here you go – the long VIRGO ‘laundry list’ of this massive ‘System’!

The Full Moon will be astronomically a ‘Micro FM’, not as ‘usual’ a large-to see (if at all, weather wise) Harvest MOON. 

Reason:
The NEW MOONs on July 31, Aug 30, and Sept 28 are SuperMOONs – closest to Earth in the lunar orbit (with Aug 30 having been the closest SuperMOON) – hence the corresponding FULL MOONs are in the lunar orbit furthest away from the Earth, and smaller than usual.  

 

Let’s sort out, break down, and thread together (a la VIRGO) what these factors and patterns are about – and esp:
What would help YOU to be in alignment with the cosmic patterns, to ‘ride the waves in integrity, rather than getting overwhelmed or swept away…   

 

Best to start with illustrating it all with the

Chart of the FULL MOON – the picture says a lot!

The exact FULL MOON – last one of Summer 2019 – will be on Fri Sept 13 at 9:33 pm PDT / Sat Sept 14 at 5:33 am GDT.

 

It really IS quite a powerful image of the present energy system!
Looks like Balance is much needed!
   

 

‘Even’ Elements wise – soo much EARTH – all Earth signs activated through Planets, Nodes, and the VIRGO SUN – and not a single Planet in AIR (‘Luft’) signs (already since early July, when VENUS left GEMINI).

Good news for the Astro oxygen:
The shift comes on the day after, when MERCURY & VENUS ‘hand in hand’ move into LIBRA, on Sept 14, to bring a breath of fresh AIR, and emphasize on Balance. See my fresh & comprehensive blog post about it.
You can find the MERCURY / VENUS feature also below in these ASTRO~NEWS, as a separate feature of the ASTRO~WEATHER.     

 

Lots of Mutability (Flexibel in German) / nothing in Fixed signs, except for URANUS in TAURUS – a ‘Singleton’ and also unaspected.
Which could translate into: Hold ON, as unexpected changes can happen. But as you know, I don’t feed fear. Yet it would be good to acknowledge what’s cooking in us…
On a higher vibration: Lots of openness & movement that allows for freedom from attachments.

As you see, the PISCES MOON is super close to NEPTUNE & LILITH in PISCES – catalyzing their union (every about 10 years) on Oct 1.

Now, that’s a Big Wave of Interconnectedness.

The Nature of the Universe, and our True Nature is ‘Wild & One’ – nothing is separate, all is connected, inviting us to relax & surrender into the Unifying Field of Love.
On a global & collective level we now hopefully really ‘get it’ that we live in One World – an expression of the Web of Life.

 

All the VIRGO energy on the Solar side of the equation (MARS, SUN, MERCURY / VENUS – both on the very cusp to LIBRA where they go into the next day) says:
“Yes! And what are we going to do about this?”
“Where are the issues, and what are the choices to be made now?”


This would of course also directly relate to the upcoming federal elections in Canada on Oct 21 – second-last day with the SUN in LIBRA, and ‘as usual’ close to the ‘Tipping Point’ into SCORPIO.


Personally, with all the late VIRGO (= ‘double’ VIRGO) energy we’re called to be in ‘vertical’ alignment with our Higher Self – prerequisite to go into ‘horizontal’ alignment with what / who’s a good match for us. What’s the ‘work on Self’ / on-going practice you’re reminded of and get energy for now?
Of course, with the PISCES energy ‘across’ it’s all about Spiritual Practice. And really: All can be Spiritual Practice.
An on-going Spiritual Harvest.

 

SATURN in CAP, one of the main ‘Players’ in Sept has something to say about the Harvest too… later / further down in the ASTRO~NEWS (SATURN is good at waiting – but reminds us to not wait TOO long).

Poseidon / Neptune, in the Harbour of Havana, where the Malecon starts…. Photo from Journey in Cuba in 2012 (when NEPTUNE entered PISCES)

The FULL MOON forms a T-Square to JUPITER in SAG – can you see it?
The energy for this pattern started with the square from the SUN to JUPITER on Sept 8, and ends with the square # 3 this year, exact on Sept 21, between JUPITER in its own sign SAG & NEPTUNE in its own sign PISCES, catalyzed by the FULL MOON.
So, effectively, most of September, at least the VIRGO period is affected by the mutable T-square.

 

The JUPITER / NEPTUNE combo is the bigger backdrop (important to keep perspective about that!) which presently challenges / is being challenged by the VIRGO side.

A dynamic that’s been on all year, with highlights in January, June, and September.

The two Planets in their ruled signs, and combined, remind us of blessings, miracles, grace, gratitude, trust and faith – an uplifting and unifying energy when we see the big picture (JUPITER) that connects (NEPTUNE).

Have you been tapping into it?
A ‘saving grace’ when the going gets tough (a la SO much CAP this year, esp in January), and when there are SO many issues to keep track of (a la SO much VIRGO this month).

So, in this very VIRGO time, how about – for a change from the busy-ness: Praying, asking for help (humans, angels, spirit guides), taking rest, going for a walk, being out there, esp. by the water…?

Hubble: Saturn Sequence

As you see (if you have a trained eye for it, otherwise, trust me):

In the FULL MOON configuration there’s not just the mutable T-square to JUPITER but also a ‘Mystic Rectangle’, formed by the Full Moon axis, and the Nodal axis, with SATURN / the Lunar South Node in CAP, and the Lunar North Node in CANCER.
Sooo much about the MOON, the Nodes, and: SATURN.

The ‘Ringed One’ will also turn direction from retro (since late Apr) to direct / forward in the Zodiac from Earth perspective, on Sept 18.

Now, that’s clearly also a multiple Harvest theme:
SATURN ‘reaps’ old karma, old patterns, lessons learned, baggage dropped.

Esp. in the (last days) of retro.

Would be great to do an inventory (esp. on the FM weekend) of old patterns we commit to leave behind, and to take ownership (rather than blaming and projecting) for what’s our responsibility.

Before the SATURN turnaround on Sept 19, asking us (a la CAP): 
Now, what ARE we building?

 

 

And what’s with that ‘Mystic Rectangle’?
‘Blue’ on the outside – Trines & Sextiles between the Planets and Nodes in VIR, CAP, CAN, and PISCES. Yet ‘Red’ oppositions / polarities in the inside.  

A signature of the Mystic: While there’s inner tension to overcome dualities there’s outer harmony & peace.

Hopefully the Spiritual Harvest shows that all dualities and polarities are illusion, has us go into (CAP) judgment / resentment, and other heavy energies – where it always comes down to: the separate person is the sufferer, while there’s just ONE of us here.

Also the message of the PISCES MOON with LILITH & NEPTUNE….  

 

Blessings for the Spiritual Harvest that this Full Moon attunes us to!

PISCES – VIRGO FULL MOON with NEPTUNE (Sept 6) – We’re ALL (in) THIS!

5 Sep

A shorter note this FULL MOON… since it’s all in the vibration, less in the information…

The Piscean Unification Full Moon!
We’re all in THIS.

For better or worse.
In the Music, in the Smoke.
In the Wave of it all.

 

The Full Moon in PISCES – VIRGO – with MOON / NEPTUNE – will be exact 3 minutes after midnight tonight PDT. Here is her chart:

PI - VIR FM 2017

 

How can we fix and RE-solve this or that….?
Maybe NOT.
Maybe it’s more (ALL!) about being in the Vibration of LOVE.

After Fullness, the MOON will pass CHIRON in late PI, just before midnight PDT Sept 6.

‘Healing’ happens, or at least things come into flow again, through empathy and connectedness. No fixing of faults, but being with what IS and with who they ARE.
Here’s a beautiful video that RE-emerged for our CHIRON Archetype group this week.

 

Symbolism

…through cards and images has come in as a creative wave, in our Astro sessions this week.

AMPHITRITE, an oceanic Triple Moon Goddess, married to Poseidon (which is NEPTUNE of course), yet maintaining her individuality (very VIRGO).
She can be invoked to calm our inner storms…
SO synchronistic!

The SABIAN SYMBOL for the Full Moon at 13°53′ = 14° PISCES says:

A LADY WRAPPED IN A LARGE STOLE OF FOX FUR.

 

Fox

KEYNOTE: The use of intelligence and mental subtlety as a protection against storms and trials.

Coming just after the preceding symbols and as the fourth stage of a five-fold sequence, which is usually related to some kind of technique, this symbol may at first seem irrelevant. The key to its interpretation, missed by the commentators, is fox fur. In symbolism and mythology the fox is always a clever and subtle animal. It represents the intellect at its early stage of “cunning”; in a broader sense, it also refers to “intelligence,” considered as the ability to adapt to any and all life situations. Spiritual will and the ability to stand in facing tests are necessary in any crucial or challenging situation that an individual meets within a power-oriented group. But the sword-like will often has to be shielded, and intelligence or acumen can be the most precious help in danger. It is a personal (i.e. “animal” or instinctual) shield, perhaps even a camouflage. It hides the central will, but it keeps the individual from unnecessary hardships.

What we see symbolized here is a self-protective way of meeting the inclemencies of weather, actual or psychic, which abound as one leads a life consecrated to a vaster Whole; for this very consecration arouses strong enmities. Unnecessary risks are forbidden to the initiate, for the security of the Brotherhood might be endangered. The need for PROTECTIVE SHIELDING is imperative, and glamour can be an effective shield.

 

Rather than emphasizing on the wearing the fox fur, let’s go with the symbolic meaning of the FOX Medicine.

So yeah, let’s creatively use PISCEAN Camouflage & Adaptation.
And Mercurial / VIRGOan Intelligence in changing situations.

 

Things are MOVING and moving us again indeed, after so much solid LEO fixity. ‘Flexible’ / mutable is the main modality now.

LILITH in late SAG – approaching the Galactic Centre (there in October), and leading SATURN after passing the authority / road block / obstacle on the path teacher, shows us:

Our True Intrinsic Nature is FREE. Always has been. Unconditionally.

Intentionally moving from the Heart is the SATURN job now. Karmic feedback follows (just as confirmation, not that we expect it, that would kill it).

 

Is MERCURY retro over?

Technically yes, this (Sept 5) morning it stopped its retro motion, and is now going slooooowly forward again. Which means: This week, MERCURY is in turnaround station, aka storm, like a gear shift, until it catches some momentum from Sunday Sept 10 on.
It will be out of post-retro ‘storm’ by then but still in post-retro ‘shadow’ until about Sept 20.

This week is a ‘HOT’ post-retro week, and it would be good to be very clear with agreements and communication, yet also an excellent time to also slow down, and RE-ceive messages that help with integrating the retro phase themes.

MARS also moved into MERCURY ruled VIRGO today (until Oct 22) – see last blog post.
A grounding effect that helps us with going for what’s in alignment, maybe a smaller scale, health / wellness focused pursuit.
Excellent for clearing and also detox after the Full Moon.

Funneling right into the PI – VIR Full Moon tomorrow:

Attunement and alignment.
Surrender and skillfulness.

Just like Yoga or surfing.

 

More VIRGO energy to come…

As MERCURY re-enters VIRGO on Sept 9, and VENUS joins, on Sept 19. In fact, the cuspy VIRGO NEW MOON on Sept 19 / 20 is VERY VIRGOan.

The cosmic movement to and with VIRGO calls to be grounded and practical, DO the Sacred Work that’s in alignment for us and that we came here to do, offer ceremony, ritual, and keep our body-mind-spirit Temple clear and in wellness.

Wellness is Wealth.
Wholeness is Divine.

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS:

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to YOUR INNER ‘COSMIC COMPASS’.

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’ those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with the bigger evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘HUB OF THE WHEEL’where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life.
I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified WITH them, and they don’t have to run your life.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

In a world of online offers, our intimate Astro hubs (6 – 10 participants) are a treasured way of being personally seen and involved – more commitment, a personal sense of community, and deeper effects.
