PISCES FULL MOON

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on the 16th-17th, at 24 Pisces° with the Sun in Virgo.


This is the energy of
*** Clarifying Healing ***


We also have the Moon in relationship with Chiron (our wounds), Mercury retrograde (introspection), and the Nodes also in Pisces-Virgo.

This Moon is going to touch some sensitive spots dear souls.

We've had a whole bunch of eclipses this year, and they have brought up so much that we need to face. This can be tough, but eclipses also realign us with our evolutionary path. They can be especially hard work when we've gone particularly 'off course'.

The good news is that when we are adjusting, the friction of that means that we are aligning with our purpose, and therefore with Spirit.



Be open, soft, and yielding to intuition and connection. Stay mindful of painful memories or old hurts that might come up. Now is a time when we will be triggered by interactions with others (Moon-Sun squaring Mars) - these are reminders of what we need to heal. At a very deep level, some of you could be working through childhood wounds and unhelpful conditioning. This is all to evolve.

All Full Moons are a time of culmination, of things coming to a head. I believe this is especially so for later degrees. Something you've been working or moving towards is taking, or about to take, place.

You will likely heal some past trauma, habitual life pattern, painful relationship, or inner turmoil. By 'heal', I mean that you gain awareness and move past the pain. This can mean that something is 'fixed' but usually it also means that it's released.

A Full Moon brings clarity, so you will finally see the truth behind the pain. If you can face this, and move on, you will also benefit from the additional Piscean energy - infinite Love. You might also make soulful connections.

Finally, Full Moons, with the Sun and Moon opposite each other, are a time of balance. We need to balance our infinite emotional sensitivity with discernment and reality. Balance heart + mind.


Before I started to look at this Full Moon, I had sent the following to Mr Sagittarius - how apt. Just replace 'talent' with healing.

"You get talent when you discover the ground of your pain.
There is hope and a kind of beauty in there somewhere, if you look for it."
H.R. Giger

peace & kindness dear friends,
Autumn

MERCURY RETROGRADE in VIRGO

This year Mercury retrogrades through the Earth signs. So, practical and tangible matters are being sorted out. Our last one back in April-May, was in Taurus, which dealt with our values, our possessions, and our income.

On August 30th at 29° Virgo we entered our next Mercury retrograde and Earthy energy, that ends on September 22nd.

Virgo is the energy of:
Discernment
Clarity
Service

Virgo sorts out the details! She analyses, uses logic, and takes her time, to discern what is no longer of practical use or benefit.

Mercury Retrograde (Rx) is where we get the chance to pause. It's where we take stock, go over old information, and readjust. It's our second chance.

Yes, Mercury Retrograde slows things down, but in these fast-paced times, slowing down is more necessary than ever! If your electronics go hay-wire, it's simply a sign that you're not pacing yourself. You're trying to push against the tide. Discomfort and mishaps are your signposts - you need to slow down!

Virgo has an amazing ability to sift through what doesn't work, what is unnecessary, and what is not useful to us. Now is the time to stop pushing forward and instead, comb through your recent efforts, paperwork, applications, ideas, clutter, goals, routines, diet, and choices. It will be an excellent time to renegotiate anything.

The maiden stops harvesting, takes a pause, and reassesses her labour.

Virgo is focused and finds solutions. She seeks flaws and repairs what is broken.

Mercury Virgo is a wonderful analyst and critical thinker, but be careful not to let your thinking get stuck on analysing a situation to death. This will be a brilliant time to analyse, or be analysed, just don't get bogged down. Also watch for self-criticism and negative self-talk. There's a risk of being too hard on yourself.

She's also the perfectionist. Used wisely, this energy can help you refine a skill, technique, or simply do your best work. If you get swallowed up in it though, you end up never starting or completing anything because 'less than perfect' doesn't seem good enough.

{A Moment of Rest, Daniel Ridgway Knight}


Virgo is also the sign of practical and useful service to others. It's beneficial that whatever service or help you offer during the retrograde, is authentic, has no strings attached, and is done from pure altruism. Anything less could be easily misconstrued.

Ultimately, Virgo wants to be of practical use, be clear about things, and do things well. A retrograde is a time of great adjustment, and all the areas that Virgo influences will be affected.

Mercury will begin near the planet of Love and harmony (Venus), travel by the planet of fortune and expansion (Jupiter) during the New Moon, and, halfway through, 12-13 September, it comes right up against the Sun (our Will, consciousness). Sounds good to me!

Possibilities for challenge include: friction with women, saying too much (foot-in-mouth), misplaced optimism. Yet any challenge is a doorway towards a better alignment of how you think, perceive, and speak in the world.

Check below to see where this readjustment, re-aligning, and rethinking is going to take place. Use logic and be clear, and all will be well.

Happy retrograde dear souls!
Peace & clarity,
Autumn

VIRGO NEW MOON 2016

We'll begin September with a New Moon in eclipse!

Virgo influences our daily routines, our health, and service to others. Virgo is the ordinary details of our days. It's our ability to discern the wheat from the chaff.

A New Moon is the seed, the fresh start for the month ahead.

Last year, 13th September, also had an eclipsed New Moon in Virgo. This one will be occurring in the same area of life (House) as last year. You will likely see a similarity in what's starting now with what went on back around that date.

Personally, I had moved house a month earlier, with my BF-to-be-husband, and so such a change caused my daily routine to be completely different. This year, I'm soon to move house again and amongst a community. Once again, my daily routine will be very different to what it is currently.

Virgo calls us to start projects, relationships, or new ventures, with a sense of clarity and discernment. It is setting goals that affect our daily and basic needs.

So what do you need in place, with your daily habits and routines, that enables you to feel healthy, rested, clear, and capable?

You might need naps, quiet, time alone, teamwork, feeling appreciated, creative outlets, body work, or structure. Virgo is about specifics. Now is a good time to put whatever details you need in place.

This begins with our own certainty of what we need. When we are clear in our own heads, we are better able to communicate our needs to others. Then, our loved ones, business associates, friends, or work colleagues, can be supportive. At the very least, they're not left with any doubts about why we are off obtaining for ourselves what reduces our stress.

A Virgo New Moon is also a time when we have the potential to analyse where we have been slacking. Perhaps you've been; staying up too late, losing yourself in social media, eating junk food, neglecting your yoga practice, choosing distractions over hard work.... whatever it is that takes away from you feeling vibrant as well as useful.

Now is the perfect time to clean up your act.

Virgo needs to feel of practical use, and we can do that best when our life is clear of the debris of modern living or cluttered mental attitudes.

If you make sure that the details of how you need to walk through your days are properly in place, you will sidestep the anxiety and stress Virgo is prone to. Instead, ensuring that our basic needs are met means we are content, calm, and able to take care of ourselves and offer unencumbered service to others.

This eclipsed New Moon, at 9°, is touching the North Node, a karmic point. So for many of us what we are starting or heading into, is life changing.

Accelerated growth that's soul defining.

Opposite nebulous Neptune in retrograde, we need to be careful that we are not led away from practical details towards fantasy, wishful thinking, and Romantic ideals.
Keep a balance between retaining your dreams but also doing what is pragmatic. As well as balancing your needs and other people's reactions. It's a time when sensitivity with others is at it's height. Check with others before allowing misunderstandings to develop.

Neptune also offers the chance to add soulfulness to our daily routines. Whether it's directly with meditation, or more integrated, perhaps as a more compassionate and spiritual approach to the work we do.

In challenging relationship to the Saturn-Mars conjunction, we have available to us some mighty determined energy to manifest our new ventures. But this is done with hard work, not luck. The opportunity is there. Focus, set clear goals, and put in the effort, and you will reap what you sow.

Peace & clarity dear souls,
Autumn
