Full Moon Friday with the Virgo-Pisces Axis Emphasized
by Jude Cowell (coh' wull)
Friday August 31, 2012: a Full Moon at 8 Pisces 34 perfects at 9:58 am edt and as you know, Full Moons are the culmination or fulfillment stage of something begun two weeks earlier during the New Moon, the seeding stage. This time that would be the New Moon of August 17, 2012 @25Leo08 which opposed US natal Moon in Aquarius, sign of the Water-Bearer.
With this month's cosmic emphasis within the Collective Unconscious shifting from Sun-ruled Leo to Jupiter-Neptune-ruled Pisces, we see our nation's evolutionary progress toward this week's RNC 2012 in Tampa, Florida when Republican candidate Mitt Romney finally was privileged ("humbled," he said) to accept his party's nomination for president of the United States.
And as part of a years-long cycle, Friday's publicity-infused Full Moon reflects a sense of fulfillment for Mr. Romney's recurring dream of presidential leadership by sprinkling fairy dust upon his three natal placements in Pisces: Sun, Mercury, and Mars which, as stated here previously, gives him a Piscean solar essence, ego, and personality (his arrogance and conceit may be quite unconscious!), thought processes and communication style, and Piscean-laced motivations which he uses for business since Pisces can be a successful, creative business-oriented sign as well as a user of deception or obfuscation (and a warmonger which I believe is what we have here--but aren't all our presidents anymore?)
Also, making a fortune by saddling people and companies with massive debt, then blithely sailing away with millions in 'profits' is a good example of the dualism of Pisces. But it does not illustrate a good business model for a White House CEO who says he wishes to "save" an entire country already on the ropes, some of which he and his cronies knotted themselves.
That Pisces rivals Scorpio as the Zodiac's most secretive sign, you also know and it's no surprise that Mitt Romney is known for not telling all he knows, thinks, does, or intends to do. He's a grand-schemes-speculations-Jupiter-Neptune kind of guy who loves to yacht about under a Cayman Islands flag!
So with President Obama's natal Sun and Mercury in the royal sign of Leo the Lion, his newsworthiness has naturally been on the wane somewhat the last two weeks due to the lead-up of mass publicity (Moon) to RNC 2012, Mitt Romney's nom acceptance speech (8.30.12 @10:36 pm edt Tampa, FL), and to the oceanic sign's fishy involvement in a slow-moving yet very destructive Hurricane Isaac which has dumped tons of water on lovely New Orleans for which I feel the compassion of my Pisces Moon. And because of a 'split-off' storm, Charleston, S.C. (one of my favorite southern cities for its beauty and charm, but not for its slavemarket history) has flooded, and for this I am truly sad for the good people there as well as in New Orleans--now suffering grievously again on the 7th anniversary of *Hurricane Katrina!
Yes, it seems that the current Solar Eclipse from May 20, 2012 @00Gem20--conjunct the difficult star Alcyone ('something to cry about'; exile; suffering; refugeeism--or just lots of rain) is bringing America travails and loss as the Tail of the Dragon (South Node of the Moon, ruler of oceans' tides @00Gem00 and as of last evening has twisted itself backwards into 29Scorpio conjunct US Inaugural 2009 Moon @29Sco45, we the people) swipes across the waters and the land, and conjoins the May 20th Solar Eclipse's degree which carries the energies of crying Alcyone.
Well, that's much of what I wish to say for now on the topic of Friday's Full Moon in Pisces for I felt impelled to type something here at SO'W since its degree falls upon my natal Moon.
Hmm...think the lunation might just Make My Day? Maybe I'll just consult with the nearest chair...as long as it doesn't answer me back, right?
*Hurricane Katrina came ashore at Burras, LA on August 29, 2005 but George W. Bush didn't want his plans and activities interrupted by presidentin'. Dubya was busy having birthday cake in Texas with John McCain, if memory serves.
