The Full Moon in Pisces occured at 1:05pm EST today; Tuesday, August 24, 2010. And is the climatic blessing of the projects started during the New Moon in Leo on August 9, which brought us closer to our inspirational creativity and the ideals we hope to achieve. This Full Moon is on the Pisces/Virgo axis and with the Sun making it's move into Virgo and having it's ruler, Mercury, currently retrograde in Virgo as well; we will still be introspective in our dealings. We have the sense in not rushing things, avoiding the small details is where things get complicated! The Pisces Moon with it's traditional and modern rulers also being retrograde, allows us to see the bigger picture in order to wrap up the final loose ends to make way for bigger and better!
Virgo rules the 6th house, this is our house of everyday work and routines. It is our employer's, employees and our job; not necessarily "career". We can also see our habits, health and well-being here. As stated, it's ruler Mercury is retrograde. Pisces oversees the 12th house. It's traditional ruler being Jupiter, currently retrograde in Aries, and it's modern ruler, Neptune, is also retrograde in Aquarius. The 12th house energy can be one of self sacrifice but it can also be intuitive and dreaminess. It brings about a retreat and reflection. The 12th house also has ties to mysticism, occult, and psychic matters; as well as hospitals, prisons, and institutions.
What needs to be remembered is that the sign is the modifier of the feelings and actions of a planet, while the house shows how it reacts to the modifying influence. The sign is what a planet is, and the house is how it's going to do.
Throughout the Moon's cycles, there is a death and rebirth happening. During the Full Moon a time of personal fulfillment brings us through the cycle of exploring new thoughtfulness.. While in Pisces, focus will be on making time for reflection, meditation, breaking bad habits, finishing up forgotten projects, regaining confidence, and the need to establish a better routine. This Full Moon with it's Pisces/Virgo influence will help us look deep within to be appreciative of the path we've taken so far and be looking forward to the new cycle we begin as our dreams become realized!!
Now I know usually I will include some sort of spell or even some more astro tidbits, but I am actually going through my own new cycle and am planning a move for next month. We just finalized the drop off of our containers and I have been feverishly packing and cleaning to make sure we can get the move going without too many upsets. Which is a lot of planning when you have pets and 2 kids to transport 1500+ miles!! So some of my blog posts might be a little snipped over the next month, but once we get settled in I expect the blog to pick back up! If you watch my twitter or facebook you'll be sure to see my updates as I get us on the road. It's an exciting time for us to be moving again, but it's time to "tie up some loose ends"! ;)
I hope this Full Moon brings you closer to your dreams and if you would like me take a look at what you can expect over the next moon cycle, take a look at my services page or send me a message at my email or facebook and I'd be happy to assist you!
