Dear Friends,

FULL MOON IS SATURDAY, AUGUST 29 AT 12:35PM MOUNTAIN DAYLIGHT TIME (MDT).

The theme of this full moon is FAITH and TRUST. What are you doing to deepen your spiritual practice and anchor a greater faith and trust in spirit? This is an important full moon as what you do with it has the potential to set you up either really well or not so well for some of the influences of the next few months

Rather than organizing, consolidating and prioritizing your external world, this time frame is more focused on organizing, consolidating and prioritizing your internal world. What is important? What do you value? What are you not paying enough attention to that serves as your foundation in this life?

With that said, it is also a beautiful time to spend in community and to allow yourself to receive the support around you that will help build that faith and trust. So use this full moon to get your internal and spiritual priorities straight, and set some practices in motion that will help you focus on building that important trust and faith in spirit. If you use this full moon time well, it will help you to transition through these last days of August with more focus.

Remember that evolution only goes in one direction so regardless of what it may seem like out there in the world with people acting badly, we actually are as a whole moving forward. Trust. Faith.

Blessings,
Lena

We have a myriad of reasons to put our attention on this Virgo/Pisces Full Moon: The Jupiter/Neptune cycle, Full Moon, and the movement of the Nodes.

First, big planets are aligning with the Sun and Moon – Jupiter conjunct the Sun expanding Virgo energies at the same time as the Full Moon conjuncts Neptune deepening, deepening Pisces energies. Expect Full Moon energies to be greatly magnified by this joining of big planets with the Sun and the Moon. Jupiter is the traditional ruler of Pisces and Neptune the modern ruler (since its 1846 discovery). They will exactly oppose each other in their 13-year cycle in mid-September emphasizing the Virgo/Pisces continuum and making us really stretch to open our conscious awareness and our hearts even further and adapt to our changing worldly existence. This Full Moon is a prelude and initiation to that opening signified by Jupiter opposing Neptune in mid September while book-ended by solar and lunar eclipses.

Then, In November, the nodes will be changing to the themes of the Virgo/Pisces axis for 18 months to orient our growth in this same arena.

So what dynamics do Pisces/Virgo bring up for us? It’s the perfect right/left brain dichotomy, impressions vs. facts, wide-open sensitivity to all input visible and invisible vs. the precision and focused detail of the mind. A feminine water/earth polarity, both Pisces and Virgo are mutable signs meaning able to be flexible and integrate and even thrive on change. What makes them opposites is Pisces desire for unity and Virgo’s desire for discrimination.

Pisces as the last sign of the zodiac is sensitive to the wholeness and oneness of life, hence the most intuitive, creative and spiritual of the signs. Pisces brings us imagination, poetic fluidity, spiritual compassion.

Pisces’ spirituality and femininity is the healing antidote to the unraveling of the unbalanced masculine structures of our planet. Pisces teaches us about having faith in something greater than our egoic creations and how trust supports us in opening to the abundance of our divine natures. This is a hard sell if we are focused on the chaos of the news and the physical world and may seem naive and gullible of which Pisces is often accused. But Neptune in its own sign of Pisces now for the next 14 years (somewhere it hasn’t been in 165 years) is here to support us in dissolving the veils that separate us from a greater wholeness. Neptune’s action is to dissolve, merge, respond, surrender, sacrifice. What is intangible, illusionary, mystical, dreamt is Neptune’s gift and breeds healers, artists, martyrs, poets, dancers and visionaries. Idealistic? Yes, and prone to disappointment leading to escapist behaviors when overwhelmed – drugs, alcohol, vague confusion, worries and suffering, television – and the propensity to hide and keep secret these ‘self-undoing’ behaviors.

Neptune is within 2º of the Moon so all of the above qualities of Pisces will be greatly magnified and will extend beyond exact Full Moon. By mid September, Jupiter, newly moved to the sign of Virgo, will exactly oppose Neptune stretching us to higher frequencies, expanding our relationship to Spirit, and developing a trust that ‘everything’ will turn out perfectly.

What does Virgo bring to the equation as a balancing force? A strong mental focus because of its Mercury ruler, and a focus on the real world because of its earth element, along with some very practical work ethics for keeping the material world in working order such as organization, efficiency, discerning priorities, excellence at detailed tasks, skillful creativity and notable self discipline. Virgo stretches beyond the work world to craftsmanship and love and care of animals, nutrition, gardening, study, caring for others. Bottom line, Virgo is about work and health, and its relationship to the sixth house and a deep commitment to service will often find our Virgo selves opting for a crisis in work or an illness for a growth experience. This is how Virgo at times orients toward self improvement, purification, and adapting to circumstances. Virgo’s “consideration of others” and gentle and thoughtful nature is undeniable, but they are also considered “dry” as a temperament which means able to inhibit emotional reactivity which supports their ability to bring intellectual clarity and discernment to a situation.

Gift-giver, expansive Jupiter has just entered Virgo for one year. Jupiter helps us see how our beliefs and philosophical ideas shape our experience and give meaning to life. We draw down wisdom from the universe through Jupiter. This will be a year of making our lives much more functional, efficient and productive. And this week is the only time within that year when Jupiter gets the rocket boost of the Sun’s energy coupled with Neptune’s power. Use this for creativity, teaching and learning, for healing work and aligning with Spirit, surrendering the non useful, and readying your life for new, unfathomable relationship with that which is greater than personality. Expansion has already begun; personality, not happy.

Pisces is ever ready to support Virgo projects. Don’t let dreams, synchronicities, signs and hunches or ‘funny feelings’ pass you by and rely on your spiritual practices, contemplation and dreams for balance and guidance. Develop your trust and faith and “learn to walk the mystical path with practical feet”.

Venus and Mars have just become ‘morning stars’ and are rising in the East at dawn. They are anchoring a Grand Trine in Fire Signs along with Vesta and Pallas Athena all at 13º. Venus and Mars in Leo activate our leadership, delight in self expression and relationship to personal power. Vesta brings the virgin quality of being whole onto ourselves, strengthening our personal commitment and focus, while Athena helps us use the quantum creativity channels of the mental realms to attain our goals and manifest with ease. Fire signs inspire us and give enthusiasm, self confidence and energy. Venus and Mars are making three conjunctions, this being their second and the third will appear in late October ~ a long dance of union between the masculine and feminine archetypes.
