2015 Pisces Full Moon

2015 Pisces Full Moon

August 29, 2015

11:35 AM PDT / 2:35 PM EDT / 6:35 PM GMT

6 Pisces 6

The Pisces Full Moon is a combination waking dream, party and mini-vacation, marking not only the end of summer, but also the winding down of years of upheaval. It’s an escape from what has come before, and a breather before we get to the work of the fall.

Any Pisces Full Moon unhinges us from ordinary boundaries between individuals, and between us and mundane reality, time and space. We experience greater than usual awareness of our interconnectedness with other people and humanity in general — heightened empathy, compassion and love — and with the divine. We are more open to peak artistic experiences, to otherworldly inspiration and, let’s be honest, to countering rational thought with drink, drugs and entertainment.

This year’s model is more extreme than the usual. One reason is that the ruler of Pisces, Neptune, ruler of magic and illusion, is in the thick of the party, right at the Moon’s side, which makes his cosmic-fog machine influence all the greater. This influence is being egged on (reason number two) by more-more-more Jupiter, standing by the Sun. Jupiter’s position is also whipping up the power of the Virgo Sun and the paradoxical counterpoint it poses to all that free-flowing Piscean energy:  escalating the drive to push for intactness against immersion in the All; heightening discretion and discernment in the midst of soaking up others’ emotions.

The combination is producing an unlikely cocktail of romanticism and objectivity. Tender emotions are escalating, dreamlike, transcendent, bittersweet, magical and woozy-making, while some part of us remains in observer mode watching them crest and ebb. We’re knowingly walking into situations outside of what passes for reality.  We’re in for a getaway with awareness of going back to work, pronto; a magic show we know full well is tricking us; a sentimental journey with an eyebrow raised; a taste of love with eyes wide open; empathizing with a person in pain while strategizing ways to ease it.

A lot of this has love in all its possibilities as a central theme. Romance is not necessarily involved (old friendships, other peoples, animals, family issues, for a few aberrations), but in many cases it is. The Venus retrograde in Leo has been summoning exes, ghostly visitations and musings on long-gone love, missed opportunities and might-have-beens, which are cresting under this Moon into to wistfulness, longing and regret. Compassion and healing are another potential, of course.

The prospect of actually realizing a connection, new or renewed, is also coursing through this Moon. It’s steaming with the passion and anticipation of cosmic lovers Venus and Mars hurtling toward their hot date on September 1. (Listen to my playlist to set the mood, or cheer them on.) The Full Moon might be putting the beloved in a spiritual light. Or elevating her/him to goddess/god-in-the-flesh status. Or cloaking the person in a glamour that may or may not be true to what’s underneath. Having observer mode on call will be handy; it’ll make possible keeping your eyes wide open while stars twinkle in them.

Watch for a cinematic quality in what washes up under this Full Moon.  Neptune’s illusions include the silver screen, and we could find life imitating art at times this weekend. “My Heart Goes On and On” will be the soundtrack for some of us. (That was on the Titanic, though, remember.) Some of us will end up in a Hot Tub Time Machine and revisit — possibly rewrite — history. Others of us are taking a cruise on the Love Boat, on which even aging singles just might hook up with the person of their dreams.  Still others may find themselves on Fantasy Island, where dream fulfillment might be for the moment, or might play out in a way that continues on the mainland afterward. And some of us will sidestep parallels to blockbusters or cheesy TV shows altogether and write their own scripts, with their own kind of music.

Enjoy the respite. Enjoy the escape. If you flirt with going overboard, let that observer side reel you back in. Or throw a lifeline. Or steer the boat alongside you until you get to shore.

Jupiter in Virgo: The Clean-Up Crew Has Arrived (And You’re In It)

The old song “The Party’s Over” is in the air. (Don’t know it? Have a listen.) It’s sounding one of the themes of the next 13 months, as bigger-is-better Jupiter travels through the improvement zone of Virgo. Jupiter in Virgo is Good News for all of us. It’s turning some of the rubble of the past three years into firm and sturdy foundations. Not to mention, encouraging quite a lot of clean-up work.

Bursting into Flames: Following up on Astro-Politics: Trump’s on Fire

Turns out Donald Trump’s inflammatory rhetoric is pouring gasoline on fires of fear and discontent and inciting violence. Rolling Stone nails where this is heading in this report.

Pair his machine-gun, shooting from the hip pronouncements with dictatorish pronouncements, a recklessness disregard for what the office of the president actually has the power to do, and a huge swath of society looking for a scapegoat, and I’m seeing newsreels from 1930s Europe.

Following up on Astro-Politics: Trump’s on Fire

Last week I posted an analysis of Donald Trump’s chart predicting that fire was coming to a head for him at the Leo New Moon August 14.

“I’m still waiting,” I’m hearing. Yes, he has not spontaneously combusted. Yet.

A few things to note:

  1. A New Moon cycle affects 30 days. Something has been lit, even if we aren’t seeing it yet.
  2. The press reported, at the New Moon, that he’s been called for jury duty.
  3. I predicted clarity to come:  “Expect the ramifications to become ever clearer in September, when Venus and Saturn go direct and ultimately change signs. By November Saturn crosses Trump’s Lilith. I don’t normally pay attention to Lilith, but mention her now because as Adam’s first wife, she does represent the scorned, devalued woman. There will be consequences.”
