August 2015- Pisces Full Moon/ So How Do We Get There?

I recorded a video to give my take on today’s full moon in Pisces. It would have been up earlier but YouTube.

If you want a quick take away (because I still don’t feel like a lot of typing) it’s this- emotion and logic both have their place in life. Sometimes you gotta feel it out first, then work it out next. Lead with heart but let your brain do the walking. Trust your intuition and hunches but don’t allow yourself to get carried away. Verify and refine.

Here ya go

God Is In The Detail/Hello Virgo

The phrase “God is in the detail” is a old saying that asks us to be careful and thorough in execution because details matter. If a Virgo-3-Virgo sun didn’t think of this then someone with heavy Virgo energy must have figured this out. Unlike Capricorn which deals in practical advancement (cardinal earth) and Taurus which deals with practical sustainment (fixed earth), Virgo engages in practical refinement (mutable earth).

Virgo season is upon us. Here is a run down of the current planetary postions

  • Sun- 0 degrees Virgo
  • Moon – 15 degrees Sagittarius
  • Mercury- 25 degrees Virgo
  • Venus- 17 degrees Leo (retrograde)
  • Mars- 9 degrees Leo
  • Jupiter- 2 degrees Virgo
  • Saturn- 28 degrees Scorpio
  • Uranus- 20 degrees Aries (retrograde)
  • Neptune- 8 degrees Pisces (retrograde)
  • Pluto- 13 degrees Capricorn (retrograde)

The way information is processed on a larger scale is colored by Virgo energy so precision is a necessity, however a certain amount of grace is allotted in our relationships due to Venus moving backwards thru Leo. The sun is moving away from a square aspect to Saturn and moving closer to an exact conjunct aspect with Jupiter. At large, we are feeling our ability to be optimistic grow. Looking at the small pieces may not make us so frustrated and emotionally heavy anymore. Faith goes a long way in giving us the energy and push we need to do another double check.

Virgo energy is not for the faint of heart. It begins a process of refinement that requires precision and stamina to endure. After the party and the pomp and circumstance of Leo exits stage left someone needs to be there to clean the mess, mend the curtains,virgo_knight___at_with_stolvezen_by_dameodessa-d6w24bz and freshen up. We all should take steps to ensure that  the virgin’s energy does not get out of hand. It is one thing to try and fine tune things but we need to remember that perfection is unattainable. Nervous energy needs an outlet and redirecting Virgo’s energy away from that quest for perfection is sometimes needed. The house that Virgo rules can let you know about the area of your life that could benefit from more scrutiny and detail work. Enact a bit of “get right” and let the virgin work their magic in your life.

**Interestingly, the “proverb” is most often attributed to two men whom both have Mars in Virgo although no one knows the exact source**

July Full Moon – Blue Moon, I Saw You Standing Alone

This evening, we’re beginning to experience a Blue Moon. At 6:47am ET, the moon will be in Aquarius, opposite the sun in Leo. Also, every outer/group/global planet will either already be in retrograde motion or preparing to start. Add in Venus moving backward from Virgo into Leo and I think this is a good time for some me time. A critical eye turned towards how and where you interact with others and the world at large is an important step you should take before you start creatively paring back and trimming the fat.

Aquarius gives a detached bend to our emotional reactions, while we may consciously try to strive for what is best for self first. Pride needs to be examined either way because it is a sticking point with that Leo/Aquarius axis.

Is going forward from a place of detachment really the answer for where our plan for the next month or so should take us? Or should we be willing to get creative with self love and how we shine our light for the world to see?

It can happen. Umi said so.

Capricorn Full Moon July 2015

I’ll keep this relatively short and sweet
cap
Full moon (peak of short-term plans and emotional fulfillment) tonight in Capricorn (sign of cardinal earth- enterprising, respect driven, authoritative) at 10:20. Sun (consciousness and hero self) is opposite it in Cancer (sign of cardinal water- nurturing, domestic, emotionally driven) of course. The Moon forms a conjunction with retrograde Pluto (body of unearthing and rending for transformation) in Capricorn. Mars (body of ego and survival) sits near the Sun in Cancer.

  • Do you continue to search for what emotionally gives you comfort or do you move towards what give you fulfillment on a practical level?
  • How do you find balance between your traditional roles and new relationships that challenge you?
  • Is the draw of changing public roles and fame more important than your drive to set down roots at home?

It’s a battle of the traditional mother and father. Who will win? The child who loves and opens themselves to the best of both figures
