Full Moon in Pisces ~ August 24, 2010

Boris Vallejo's PISCES The Fish

Full moons signify the completion, culmination of what may have been initiated during the previous new moon in Leo which dared us to freely express ourselves. This Full Moon in Pisces touches upon our spiritual selves, our psychological make-up, the realm of our subconscious, and our collective interconnectedness while supporting Leo's emboldened individualistic ideals and seeking harmony with the Virgo-Sun's need for order through logic and reason.

This Pisces-Full Moon makes connections with what remains of the Cardinal T-Square -- a harmonious alignment with Pluto (purging/transformation) and irritating but fateful alignments with Saturn (reality/hard work) and Jupiter (ideals/opportunities).

Pisces governs our subconscious and all that is hidden. There is a thin line between enlightenment and delusion, insight and confusion. This full moon seeks balance and harmony with its polarity -- Virgo, who is practical, organized, accommodating and service-oriented. Pay attention to dreams and become aware of your deepest desires (Pisces). Let the passion and determination to attain these goals grow strong enough to result in the development of well-planned actions/decided steps (Virgo). Mercury (thought/communication) is also in Virgo, is currently in an introspective state, and can be of help in making plans, troubleshooting, anticipating obstacles and working around delays.

This Full Moon occurs at 2 degrees of Pisces on August 24 at 10:05 a.m. PST / 1:05 p.m. EST. Those born within 3 days of February 20 or August 23 or with natal planets and/or house angles on or around 2 degrees of water or mutable signs may feel the effects of this full moon stronger than others, especially with Mercury retrograde in Virgo and the Saturn-Pluto square lingering.

For me, this Full Moon trines my natal Sun (conscious will), conjuncts my natal North Node (life path), and falls in my natal 6th house of work and health (as a Virgo-rising) and my solar 9th house of personal growth and travel (as a Cancer-Sun). Well, isn't that exciting! (*a little sarcasm*) Some north node action ... I do feel and sense the big change in my life's journey (north node), following my relocation from New York back to my hometown, San Francisco. In the past few weeks, I've been getting settled in, adjusting to a new daily/weekly routine, reconnecting with old friends, hanging out with my nephew and nieces before school starts up and spending time with my mom and siblings. This full moon in Pisces brings my life in the east coast to a close and prepares me for a new life path in the west coast that's motivated and in sync with my conscious will.
