"We are born at a given moment, in a given place, and like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and the season of which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more." - Carl Gustav Jung

Pisces Full Moon & Virgo Sun At The End of Summer

(The beginning of this Blog is a copy of what I wrote in my Newsletter which was emailed out on the first of September. I have been very busy organizing and have had little quiet time for contemplation or writing, so please excuse the shortcut!) I don't know about you, but I am ready to organize, weed out and sort through the unnecessary stuff in the corners of my closets and cupboards, as well as my mind. With the Sun traveling through this part of the zodiac until September 22nd, the focus is on organization and discernment, as in, "what shall I keep, do I use it, is it time to let go of this item, habit or thought...?!" As Virgo holds the earthy energy of a practical mind, it is very conducive to gathering facts, analyzing them and deciding how to adapt to the conditions of the time. Virgo desires perfection as well as being of service, and having rulership over the intestines, wants to utilize our food to serve in the most efficient and healthy way possible. A clear head and a clear digestive tract are good things to concentrate on for the next three weeks. The Full Moon in Pisces on Friday, August 31st is also a "Blue Moon", meaning the second Full Moon in the same month. Full Moons highlight our growth and efforts since the New Moon and illuminate the progress we have made. A Pisces moon is nostalgic and emotional, bringing highs or lows depending on the emotions and energy surrounding us. Pisces rules the oceans, fog and film, drugs and alcohol and this is where we may see issues arise in both our corner of the world, as well as around the globe. The unseen threads of compassionate connection are in the Piscean realm; art and music can flow making links to others that create new bonds. The danger is feeling too much "at one" with everyone around us and not setting good workable boundaries. Avoid overuse of mind-altering substances under this Full Moon and just let the music of the spheres carry you. This is where Virgo's propensity for clear discernment comes in handy! On Labor Day Monday, action-oriented Mars joins up with that Lord of the Underworld, Pluto, early in the morning, so energies will be revved up to get things done, make changes, let go of dispensable things and make room in our lives to turn over a new leaf. Be aware that the rush people find themselves in can create problems on the highways or between strong personalities both vying for their own agendas and act accordingly - in other words, drive defensively and keep out of the argument! Another aspect occurring today involves Venus and Saturn which will feel like restraint on all our resources, including wallets and bank accounts. Good thing the banks are closed today... Both of these planetary energies deal with earth elements and Venus has a receptive quality while Saturn's is restrictive. The message is to use what you have and to be cautious with your personal things. Take some time to notice what needs repair or a new coat of paint and make a plan now for how to achieve this project within your budget. Don't over-extend your physical or monetary limits; you can actually live with less than you think you need. Have a great rest-of-your-weekend and I'll be back with another Blog in a couple of days! Remember also, to keep your head in the stars and your feet on the ground~
