September 16.2016 Full Moon in Pisces 3:05p.m. (EDT) Sun in Virgo These are wild times! A major and controversial election in the USA, increasing civil unrest internationally, natural disasters and more; and everyone is finding themselves in some way impacted by these unsettling events. At personal levels loss has increased for everyone; loss of family, friends, jobs, stability and all in all it has been a very challenging year. Most have tried to remain optimistic and although maintaining a positive attitude can go a long way, there are times when we simply have to surrender to the pain and uncertainty and allow our emotions to flow organically as a way of release. The energetic build up that has led to this Full Moon and the astrological sign that She is cloaked in can explore and create a state of primal release towards stability and shoring up. On Friday, September 16th Mother Moon waxes full in the astrological sign of watery mutable Pisces. Typically, Piscean energy is healing and calming; seeking to expand the radius of its giving nature (Mutable modality of flexibility). This is the space of all loving compassion and selflessness that seeks harmonious interaction at all cost; even when the toll of great price is exacted upon the giver. Pisces is the third of the Water signs and the last sign of the Great Zodiacal Wheel. This waterwheel brings into itself the cumulative experience of all that has come before (on the astrological wheel) and it is from this perspective that hope springs eternal. Feeling trumps mind in the Pisces world and the ideology of hope is often one that is colored by the trials and challenges that the Piscean has had to endure in their life’s efforts. These are the waters that dredge up the sludge that lay below, always holding to the ideal that love will conquer all. But, there is also the potential in these waters for flooding and although held with best intentions, these become the seas that enable behavior that is less than productive. Virgo’s Sun is calling us to try to make sense from the chaos and demanding scrutiny and analysis to sort and categorize the experiences we are having. We are conditioned to do this and in many ways this is the “civilized” approach that keeps us in check and also creates a space of pent up anger, blame and stress that ultimately contributes to more unrest and an environment that perpetuates the stirring of a pot of chaotic and toxic stew. Ultimately, we come to realize that there are just some circumstances and situations that are fed by the added attention in a non-productive way and trying to fit them neatly into our emotional file cabinets may remove them from sight, but the weight and volume of their accumulation is more damaging than simply dealing with each and then shredding the contents. Howling at the Moon Many of have reached the critical mass point and are ready to release what has been building within us. Emotions are running high and strong with many that we interact with and treading lightly has become the way of navigating choppy waters and avoiding conflict. Unfortunately, treading lightly often means pulling in tightly and exercising restraint as the norm. This Full Moon and Solar Light offers the opportunity for the creation of an outlet to release some of that building pressure. Solar Virgo will light the way as He methodically prepares the waters that will arise from our primal needs and instincts. And, Mother Moon will be the willing recipient of that outpouring. The howling at this moon is one of keening and release. Let the tears flow; scream, rant and rave and allow the emotional pain to flow back into Mother Moon’s waters that can withstand whatever storms are needed to carry you forward as you move strongly in a current of your own making.
