Full Moon Eclipse in Virgo/Pisces

Even though we will be riding a reckoning wave of Lunar Eclipse this week, the upcoming astrological aspects are somewhat milder in influence than recent weeks, hopefully providing a breathing space to integrate our deep, transformational shifts of recent months. Because this Full Moon is exactly linked to healing, shamanic, magical Chiron, it will make this Lunar Eclipse exceptionally life-changing and potent. We will also complete the Mercury retrograde cycle, and thankfully, Mars completes it’s six month transit through deepwater Scorpio and enters reach-for-the Light Sagittarius.
I will be offering my Fall Equinox discounts on all my sidereal astrological readings until the end of September. Send me an email if you are interested! Thank you.
Here is a brief synopsis of the Full Moon characteristics that hold true to every Full Moon from my from my friend and sidereal colleague Nick Anthony Fiorenza at Lunar Planner.
“The Full Moon marks the point of coition in the lunar cycle, the climax, the point of excitement, a time of celebration. The day just after the Full Moon is a time for the realization of the theme to emerge, of what the activities of the first half of the lunar cycle, culminating into the enthusiasm of the Full Moon, are really about. Relax and allow this realization to occur. There is no need to force it as it surfaces on its own.”
Note: I write my posts according to the Lunar cycles, posting on the New, First Quarter, Full and Third Quarter Moons. If you work with and within the natural flow of time and supportive cosmic energies, your life will flow with more ease and grace. My interpretations and predictions are based on the true sidereal astronomical alignments.

Full Moon Partial Lunar Eclipse: Sun in Virgo/Moon in Pisces: Any eclipse functions as a portal to powerfully release habits of our heritage or history and/or to step forcefully into making new choices beckoning us by our future selves. As Pisces is associated with our lymphatic system and all the liquid aspects of our body, and Virgo works with our digestive system and nutritional needs, this Full Moon is an excellent time for doing a cleanse, getting a lymphatic massage, clearing out things that cause congestion, including food choices, chemicals, toxic relationships.
Moon/Chiron/South Lunar Node conjunction: This planetary pile-up, happening in conjunction with an always powerful Full Moon, can increase the cleansing of causal reasons we have reoccurring trauma in our lives. The clarity of new insights, a healing crisis, a sense of true completion are all possible today. We have been through so, so many challenging, yet exciting shifts this year (re-read previous weeks in my Star Signposts), and today’s Full Moon shines a bright light of understanding, forgiveness, appreciation for our personal strength and helpful relationships that saw us through. Give gratitude for your resiliency.

Mars enters Sagittarius: I imagine even Mars, our red desert planet, feels the relief of leaving deepwater Scorpio and entering firebrand Sagittarius. Both Mars and Sagittarius love to take a stand, speak the truth, make things happen. It’s just another sign that this coming fall promises to be a time for dynamic steps, bold actions, courageous choices. Power forward.
Moon in Pisces trine Saturn in Scorpio: This helpful Tai Chi trine helps those that need motivation to get moving, or, conversely, helps those that are always pushing too hard to soften and allow more grace to guide the flow of life.
Sun September 18
Venus in Virgo opposite Moon/Uranus in Pisces: This counterpoint aspect places what you need and what you want in confrontation and dialogue, ultimately providing a possibility to integrate opposing aspects of your life in surprising, experimental new forms, always the gift that Uranus brings. Uranus doesn’t follow the rules, but encourages you to make up your own. This creative tension can involove a relationship with another, or occur inside your relationship to yourself.
Mon September 19
Moon/Ceres conjunction in Aries: Pioneering alliances that bring nurturing, caregiving, increased healthy choices to many, are being initiated under this aspect.
Juno in Libra sextile Pluto in Sagittarius: This aspect speaks to the gifts that come to our relationships when we allow inevitable change to keep growing us, not choosing to be stuck in old habits, but exploring ways to spice up our life with emerging possibilities. This time of chaos is not about keeping to the status quo, but demands we disrupt the old, and experiment with the new.
Grand Trine in Fire: Mercury retrograde in Leo trine Pluto in Sagittarius trine Moon in Aries: Today’s theme of trying new things and launching new initiatives is further supported with this dynamic aspect. Moon rules our emotions, Mercury governs our minds, and Pluto always demands evolution to stay relevant and happy. It supports the cooperation of collaborative courage of all members involved.
Tue September 20
Moon in Taurus trine Sun in Virgo: After yesterday’s fire-fest of initiation, this aspect helps ground that fire and light into our physical dimension. Time to put the new idea or plan into action, with concrete steps, including financial steps.
Wed September 21
Mercury turns direct: Near midnight tonight, Mercury in sidereal Leo completes it’s recent three week retrograde. Use today to complete your reorganization, research and release period (like clearing our emails, tidying your desk, taking those items to goodwill). Mercury turns direct near the North Lunar Node that guides our future choices, so make a list or set intentions for where you want to stay focused in the coming months.
Thu September 22
Moon in Gemini opposite Mars in Sagittarius: This aspects amps up your need for knowledge as you voraciously devour any information that is coming your way. Excellent day to book tickets for upcoming adventures or plow through piles of mail, books, informational emails.
Fall Equinox/Northern Hemisphere 8:21 am MDT: How swiftly Autumnal Equinox came this year, so it seems to me. Now we enter the harvest phase of 2016, and it promises to bring a bountiful bounty. It’s always good advice to do your ceremony of choice, giving gratitude to the Universe, at this holy moment of the shifting of light, of focus, of purpose, of manifestation. Despite it’s challenges, what a fortunate time we are living in, able to influence the course of coming events. Take responsibility for your special, unique role in this time of turning points for humanity, our Earth, even, our galaxy.
