This Astrology Week

The Pisces Full Moon launched on Saturday will continue through Monday.    We work on our faith and intuition for three and half days.   Then on Tuesday 9/1 we move into disseminating phase which will play out the rest of the week.     Also we are in our last week of Venus retrograde.    Venus will turn direct on September 6 so make the most of this important time.   Look at your personal value.  Look at what you value.  How are you being valued?  Who are you valuing?   What and who do you love?  How is it reciprocated?  What does your daily life look like and how is your value and what you value playing out every single day?  

Special focus:
8/31:  Sun oppose Neptune.  Vagueness.  Illusions.  Lack of truth, over identifying with fantasy bug.   

September 1
7:31pm EDT 

Focus on:  How are you sharing your independence?  How are you sharing your singular visions?  How are you sharing your “others’ opinions, be damn!”  How are you sharing true leadership?

Special focus:

9/1: Venus Con Mars.  Brazen actions, pride motivates big moves.   Self assuredness with some rashness. But lively for sure.

Pisces Full Moon

Full Moon Phase
August 29
2:35pm EDT
6 PI 07

Full Moon:  We make the needed adjustments on the things we planted. Usually emotions are up and running and for those people who perhaps did not utilize the new moon and the rest of the waxing moon, this is when emotions can get the better of us.  There can often be a big emotional break, for no other reason than to get back on track.   Some partnership will offer up some balance.  The moon is bright and full and there is no room for shadows, what is reflecting on you? 

Focus on:   Full Moon in Pisces.    Every year on the Pisces full moon we are challenged to find our faith.   Our ego wants to think we have everything figured out but then Pisces comes along and says, “Really? You think you know everything? That is so funny. "

With the Sun in Virgo we have the focus of a microscope.   With Moon in Pisces we are far out in space tying to touch the stars and our dreams.    This Full moon Jupiter is on top of the Sun.   What details are we hyper focused on?  Where is our OCD going nuts?   How is your OCD stepping all over your faith?    On the opposite side, we have the Moon in Pisces on top of Neptune (which is Pisces ruling planet).   Man, it is time to double down in our dreams and faith.   What do we look like when we get quiet and tune into our radar?   The radar that is pulsating little beeps guiding us to our hopes, visions and dreams.     And how does our insecurity (Sun in Virgo) tell us those goals are ‘impossible’?  What imaginary check off list do we have that says, “I’ve got to do this before that?”   Sure, there are some things that do follow a straight line but sometimes things happen that short cut those lists.   How does that work in your little world of 1+1 = 2?   
 Who says what is impossible and what is not?   Jupiter on Sun in Virgo is pushing hard.  He wants to believe but then he tricks himself with stupid details. 

When was the last time you let faith drive the car?  What does it mean to dig in and find your inner voice and do what it says?  And then there is that other part of Moon in Pisces.   That moody highly sensitive side.  Are the emotions pushing too hard on you?  And how does depression work for you?  Or against you?  Yeah, depression is a Pisces word.    How brave are you to access faith when you feel low?  

Take this full moon to be dreamy and go with the flow.  Knowing that the flow is coming from a divine source.  

Enjoy the full moon to find your faith and at the very least your inner humanitarian.

This Astro Week

The Leo New Moon continues to flame on Monday. Where do you need strength?  Where are you showing creativity?  Where is your passion?  Where is your love?  What seeds are you planting  that speak to building your self esteem?  How are you feeling and being ALIVE!   Take Monday and Tuesday  (early) morning to plant those seeds.  

On Tuesday new moves into Crescent phase.

Crescent Moon Phase
Aug 18
1:43pm EDT 

Focus on:  What are your learning about partners?  What are you learning about partnerships?  What are you learning about balance?  What are you learning about passive aggressiveness?  What are you learning about diplomacy?   What are you learning about beauty?

Special Focus:
8/19: Venus trine Uranus:  Things that are valued come out of nowhere.  A surprise around love & money.   Playfulness in a different arena is fun. 
8/21: Sun/Saturn.   Pig headedness. Ego gets checked.  Hard work and discipline wants no more playtime. 

First Quarter Moon
August 22
3:30pm EDT

First quarter: We do more actions based on the information that we just received.  Or we feel our instincts guide us on something.  We pursue again.  We make another call or we see someone. We mail something.  We stir the pot again.  This can be a time when we realize that the goals we planted on New need more action from us, perhaps actions that involve breaking away.   Are there people who say they have our best interest in heart but fear us growing away from them?  Maybe we need to get help from others not the usual suspects.  Some independence may need to be exerted.

Focus on:  What actions can you take that speak to things that are foreign?  What actions can you take that speak to your philosophy?  How are you brave by building a bridge to something that is ‘different’?  How are hypocrites or hypocritical behavior rubbing you raw?  What actions can you take that speak to YOUR truth? 

Special focus
8/23  Sun enters Virgo

Leo New Moon: Roar!

Leo New Moon
August 14, 10:53am EDT

This is a pretty cool Leo New Moon.    What is it going to take for you to have fun?  Or what is it going to take for you to run with your creativity?   What is it going to take for you to love without abandonment?   Oh, there is so much that Leo can teach you.  Go to this LINK to read the whole article.  

In the meantime, here is a little snippet but go to the link for the whole write up.  Lots to read.

Leo New Moon

Learning Leo
Wow.   We are getting a big ol’ fat terrific Leo New Moon and we all deserve it.   Honestly, is there anyone on earth who hasn’t felt shaken up in the last three years?   The Uranus/Pluto tension starting in 2012 put us all in a hideous world of black and white and somber grey.   Fear abounds everywhere during this tough patch but now, get out of the way, Technicolor is entering our life for twenty-nine days.   This is a fabulous New Moon; let’s all make an effort to run with the colors!    

Leo is the second fire sign of the zodiac.  In Aries the first fire sign, we have sparks and hot white flames that can forge new ground but also can singe if you get too close.  In Leo, the flame is robust and hot and workable.  It is the flame that we use for cooking or warming the family.  It is the harnessed flame.    By the time we get to Sagittarius the flame has mellowed. It still can warm food or feet and more to the point it can be used to ignite other fires, perfect for Sag the philosopher and educator.      

When we think about Leo we sometimes stumble on the bravado nature of the Lion.  Roaring all over the place, sucking up oxygen wherever they go, so thin-skinned that when they bruise they are the loudest.      But the other part of Leo is equally at play.  They are unabashed about their pride.  When they do something they do it big and right.  They want it to be glorious.   And you know what? We can learn from them.      They are loyal; they will stick by someone in thick and thin.   They know their strength and usually others in their tribe/pack/pride whatever you want to call it, rely on Leo’s strength.  They are not afraid to be strong.  And you know what?  We can learn from them.    When they love, they love with full force. Like a big ol’ cat grooming their mate or their cub. Leo will lick their loved one or their creative project all over.   They don’t hide their love or marginalize it or rationalize it, they just love with force.   They are not afraid to be passionate.  And you know what?  We can learn from them.    

And no one knows how to play like Leo.  They find humor everywhere they go, they laugh loud, they like others to laugh, they enjoy a party and with Leo a party can be two people.    They are creative from the ends of their toes to the top of their crown chakra.    And more to the point they are not afraid to have fun, play and activate their creativity.   And you know what?  We can learn from them.

Of course we have a Leo New Moon every year but it is not every year that there is this much opportunity to learn so much from Leo.  Sometimes the planets are in such harsh aspects with the Sun and Moon that we have to avoid Leo pitfalls.   We have to run from the braggarts, the exaggerations, the egotistical outbursts, and perhaps narcissism where they and their opinions are the center of the world.   Sure every sign has its bumps and we discuss them every month.  But this Leo lunar cycle is not so much about the bumps and more about us getting out of our way and letting Leo teach us a thing or two about being creative, being big, having fun and for goodness sake feeling ALIVE!!! 

This Leo New Moon chart, the Sun and Moon are in pretty tight conjunction with Venus and a wider (out of sign) conjunction with Jupiter.   Additionally the Sun/Moon trine Uranus and there is a square with Saturn.   Which is a small rough part but let’s look at the good right now.
