Pisces Full Moon | August 26th - something new and solid built from the ashes of whatever has slipped through our fingers

I have to go by Julie-de-Waroquier

On SUNDAY at 7:56AM EDT the Pisces Moon will oppose the Virgo Sun at 3 degrees giving us our annual Pisces Full Moon.

You have probably noticed the Moon appearing larger and fuller over the last few days. I hope you have been able to get out and walk in it!

Anyone with planets or points in the early degrees of the mutable signs - Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces - and people with planets or points in the early degrees of the water signs - Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces - will probably feel this Full Moon energy strongest.

Pisces and Virgo are opposite signs, but really the opposite sides of the same coin - the same energetic loop. The balance of these two signs is where we bring God (or whatever word you feel most comfortable using here) to earth through our actions of service.

Virgo/Pisces is about the highest levels of service and compassion - it doesn't take on the burdens of others - compassion holds a higher vibration. It's not about removing the pain or suffering of another person which we literally can't do because the karma (ie energy attraction, cause and effect, our perfectly pre-planned, but not predestined life experiences) - that created it in the first place will just recreate it in another form.

Pisces is the last and final sign - the place where the buck stops - Pisces energy knows this.

Pisces compassion shows patience, lends an ear or a shoulder without the need for recognition - without the need for thanks - knowing the service is its own reward; the work is often invisible. It holds open doors and holds the spaces for others to be strong and courageous and confident. 

Full Moons bring energy to a "peak"; to a culmination, maybe to an ending. Pisces rules the 12th house of what is hidden and put away, the ways we self-sabotage, escape, sacrifice, our addictions, our imagination, lack of boundaries, connection, compassion, charity, hospitals, prisons, the things we do last, the things we have forgotten, our distant pasts, water, sleep, illness, healing, spirituality ....

Our Piscean spaces (the roles we play and the roles we have rejected within ourselves and passed out to other people to act out for us) will be on full display. Dreamers will dream. Escapists will run away. Victims and martyrs will play out some endless saga we will all have to hear about. Saviors will march into action. Seekers will look within. Artists will make art. Drifters will drift off course.

Anyone whose boat is only lightly tethered to the dock could be pulled out to sea ...

Now, the wonderful thing about this particular Pisces Full Moon, because it is stabilizing, is the chart includes a Grand Earth Trine between the Sun, Saturn and Uranus. There is solid ground here. With both Saturn and Uranus still retrograde whatever we are dealing with at this Full Moon will have its feet in the past.

The Virgo Sun speaks of us putting one foot in front of the other, developing a solid routine, figuring out what doesn't work, seeing the trees - we know the forest is there, that big old Pisces Full Moon will light up the periphery - but keeping our focus on the details.

The Moon (in Pisces) forms a Kite at the top of the Grand Earth Trine with sextiles from Saturn and Uranus. So we have the new/unexpected (Uranus), the stable/solid (Saturn) enabled into something REAL through that sacrificial Pisces Moon. What are we willing to give up/release to get something new/solid and lasting? Something has to give here. 

Keep in mind with Pisces there is always the chance things can look better than they are and we can be pretty sure that even with that bright light in the night sky we aren't seeing everything. But for those who have done their summer "work" - there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

At the same time we have the Sun (in Virgo) inconjunct Chiron (in Aries) telling us that there is no "perfect" Virgo solution. We also have Saturn (in Capricorn) squaring Chiron.

The rock/hard place (inconjunct), the limit/responsibility (Saturn), the Pisces focal point and the Virgo/Pisces opposition are all reinforcing the same message - to get the manifestion (the new, real solid thing) something else needs to be released. 

"Life is complicated", says Virgo, looking at all the moving parts and noting what needs fixing. "It doesn't need to be" says Pisces, seeing all the ways everything is already working together perfectly.

I hope everyone can get out and walk in the Full Moon. Mars (our action, initiative, passion, anger) moves direct on Monday people. It may take him a few days to get up to speed, but something in our Capricorn house is about to get a big forward PUSH.
