Welcome to September's second eclipse, shedding Light on all our connections, bringing up compassion for others, including animals and the oceans! As the last eclipse of 2016 comes to fruition, it also wraps up some of our projects or relationships that are timely to end. This eclipse season, beginning with the New Moon in Virgo two weeks ago, has been about endings for new beginnings. Just do not do it all today! Take the time today to review what attitudes, habits or worries you have been weeding out and are now ready to put in the rear view mirror.
Pisces is the last sign of the Zodiac and a Water sign. Compassion, understanding and emotional connections are the keywords to remember here. Water flows in and around everything. Our bodies are mostly made up of water and our planet/our home is covered with water. How are you taking care of yourself and your home? Have you looked the other way when humanity has cried out in boatloads of human beings crossing oceans to escape inhuman conditions? Perhaps you can only cope through alcohol or drugs or have family or friends who do and have gone into a place of utter despair.
Just as water connects us all, so do our thoughts and feelings. Do your best to send out healing thoughts and prayers to others in need, even the ones who oppose you, especially them. Prayer and intention will guide you into much calmer waters than hate and spite. Rid yourself of the negative emotions that will only toss you onto the rocky shores of mistrust and hate. Remember two weeks ago at the New Moon in Virgo when I said to be discerning and let go of stuff? Well, it's time for a check of how well you're doing with that!
In the Full Moon chart, we see more challenges than opportunities. This is due to a T-square between Mars and the Sun/Moon opposition in Virgo/Pisces. Mars is currently in Sagittarius chasing after his goals and unafraid of butting heads with those in his way. This interplay of the planets in Mutable signs calls for careful handling and restraint. Also, remember that Mercury is still retrograde until the 22nd, so nothing is yet written in stone. While giant Jupiter has moved into Cardinal Libra, he is still in close proximity to the Sun in Virgo and doesn't need much prompting to blow things all out of proportion. The full impact of this alignments plays out overnight, so don't try to tip the scales in your favor or you may find you've bitten off more than you can chew!
In the meantime, remember to keep your head in the stars and your feet on the ground.
Oh, I'll be enjoying the Full Harvest Moon out at the Island Fair this weekend. Maybe I'll see some of you there!
