Since I'm now involved in writing a longer-than-usual article these days, my blogging time has been sporadic. But not to fret! For the next lunation is covered by Julie Demboski - Tuesday August 24's Full Moon in early Pisces is detailed in her excellent Down the Rabbithole offering.
As Julie mentions, it won't be a 'rabbithole' for everyone - there are caveats, after all, even with Mercury Rx. Yet everyone has Pisces in their charts somewhere, planet or no, so I fully recommend to you Julie's insightful assessment of the August Full Moon in Pisces which is the culmination or fulfillment phase of the New Moon 17Leo25 of August 9, 2010.
Meet Me in September?
Actually, I just posted something on the New Moon of September 8, 2010 which happens to occur on the afternoon of the Jewish New Year, if you're interested. This New Moon culminates with a Full Moon on September 23, just in time for Autumn Equinox 2010, as Sun and Moon join the already-titanic Cardinal T-Square with apex Pluto, along with Jupiter, Uranus, and Saturn.
The Full Moon at Cardinal Points makes this one a world event of some proportion for big events tend to manifest or be triggered on the Cardinal Axis (00Ari/Lib-00Can/Cap; here we have Sun 00Lib15 opposing Moon 00Ari15 - the MC/IC axis in America's natal chart, if you use the 'Sibly' version for July 4, 1776 5:10 pm LMT Philadelphia, PA.) Sun/Moon = Pluto: critical time of development, which also applies to Iran's nuclear activities since this is thought by the West to be a critical time in its development, and Pluto = nuclear or atomic power. (Hopefully, Israel won't bomb Iran. Please, God. What a self-destructive move that would be for the entire planet.)
There's a YOD (turning point; crisis; special task; Finger of God) in the Sep 23, 2010 Full Moon chart, too: Mars/NN = MC: teamwork; partnership values gain importance. Mars/NN is 'pointing' toward US natal Uranus 8Gem55 as well, so we have what may entail a predicament:
Mars/NN = n Uranus: sudden events that affect a lot of people; stirring people up; organizing others (Tyl); sudden disruptions during meetings (Munkasey.)
But back to August 24's Full Moon 1Pis25:
Now everyone knows that the Virgo/Pisces axis is the victim/savior axis in Astrology. And everyone is experiencing, or is aware of, the loss and despair so prevalent in the world today. So perhaps the two Sun Virg/Moon Pisc Images for Integration may apply to the Tuesday August 24 Full Moon. If you listen to or read the news this coming week, you may discover something 'in the air' that sounds something like either one of these:
'The scientist has a dream and then, in his sacred laboratory, puts the finishing touches on his magnum opus...A peasant rests in the wheat field, and shares his bread, cheese, wine, and wisdom with the hungry labourers.'
(Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles & Suzi Harvey.)
Well, Happy Pisces Full Moon everybody - don't let the myriad of details available just now swamp or confuse you! And if you could pass some wisdom around, the planet could surely use a huge helping of it.
