Sun in Pisces

The Moon waxes Full tomorrow afternoon at 1:05 pm (EST) in the astrological sign of Virgo (Mutable Earth). The opposition of astrological energy that naturally occurs during a Full Moon phase is the tug of war between what appear to be opposing energies. In this lunation that thought is best expressed using the imagery of carefully and methodically planning the details (Virgo Moon) of how you will express your emotions in a loving and compassionate way (Pisces Sun). The strength of Solar energy is mid-point in watery depths of Pisces, the quintessential sign of understanding and empathetic nature. As the water’s of Mother Moon flow into the earthy and very concrete sign of Virgo, nothing will rise up from these intuitive depths until it has stood the test of Virgo’s analysis and organizational impact.

The quality of Mutable Water is that of being the first gurgling of what will, if productively managed, become the flowing stream that offers moisture to all that is in its path. This Virgo Full Moon midpoint in what could become an emotional overload (think heated waters that already are taking in all sorts of energetic response) is precisely what is need to almost homeopathically cancel out the flood gates over flowing and destroying rater than nurturing.

Mutable signs are the source of beginnings and catalytic prodding towards form. As such when applied to Earth the action is one of providing newly formed foundations that will ensure manifestation. Detail and correct decision making and strategizing are paramount to the success of whatever is begun. Add to this the Solar expression of Pisces, the harmonizer through love, informer through intuitive insight and compassionate healer and you have a recipe for creating a manifest product that is infused with the correct balance of heart and creative action.

The caution however is one of over-analysis and building the foundation so securely that nothing new can enter. The attention to detail is critical but only in as much as the baby is not thrown out with the bathwater. Second guessing the naturally intuitive process of Piscean energy, particularly that which has been strengthened and brought into the light of Solar magnetism can halt the usefulness of its insight, having missed the chance to effectively use the insight received.

It’s All in the Details…

The challenge in this Full Moon’s energy is one of applying just enough scrutiny (Virgo) without destroying the confidence of trusting the emotional and intuitive flow (Pisces). Pisces is very much an energy that can easily slip into self doubt and feeling inadequate. This is primarily because of the sacrificial nature of its action. Great care must be exerted to be sure that Virgo does not linger too long obsessing over the ideal of perfection and validation. From a perspective of elemental correlate, we have the opposition of Sun in watery and highly emotional Pisces and Moon in earthy and solid unyielding Virgo. Water can carve out new paths (of expression) along the path of earth it follows; and earth can remain as a barrier in allowing the life-giving waters to flow where they are most needed. A little resistance offers the inspiration for harder effort. When this occurs, growth is certain.

This is an excellent Full Moon configuration for looking a little more deeply at where you are investing your emotional energy. Trust your findings and be ready to tweak and modify as you strip away what serves and what hinders.

Jupiter Remains Retrograde in Leo

Jupiter acts as the expansive ingredient. Retrograde, that expansion takes the form of density and amplification of what would normally flex and contract easily and smoothly. In the astrological sign of Leo this amplification could be used as the electromagnetic field that draws to itself quickly and easily.

The mid-point of Sun in Pisces and Virgo offers a combined effort of Water (Pisces) – Earth (Virgo) and the expansion of Fire (Leo) as the catalysts of quickening. Jupiter stations direct in April so the intensity of this expansive nature is pressured in its action. Compassion (Pisces) drawn into the Manifest Form (Virgo) can now be expanded upon and used as a stimulant for creating the space of self-love and forgiveness. Once this is acquired, seeing this compassionate expression in others becomes the natural state of being.

Diving off the Cliff

I have carefully calculated the drop and how deep these waters are that I am willingly throwing myself into. The distance is great, but the exhilaration of having achieved this level of self-trust and confidence is well worth the action. I trust the strength of my body and the skill I have attained by practicing and preparing for this moment. I feel alive and powerful in my choice and I love the person I have become in over-coming my fears and doubts.

I breathe deeply and jump into waters that are deep and moving. I descend steady and able, with great care and allow the air to gently cradle and support. Water splashes, body enters and the feeling is magnificent. I rise to the surface and look up towards the ledge of great height where I started this journey. At this moment and in these waters I am alive and at one with life.

I step out of the water and Mother Moon lights the way as I come to sit at the edge of the waters. My heart is full and I know that this is just the beginning of learning to trust myself and my abilities. With careful planning I can achieve many things.
