The main events this week involve Vestas’s entry into the sign of Scorpio on Monday, Sep. 20th at 12:54 PM EDT
A Full Moon at 28 Degrees of Pisces culminates on Monday, Sep. 20th at 7:55 PM EDT
The Sun in Virgo transits into the sign of Libra on Wednesday Sep. 22nd at 3:21 PM EDT. The Sun’s entrance into Libra marks the Autumnal Equinox. It’s a time when the Sun is directly over the equator and about to change course in an opposing direction.
The Full Moon in Pisces is closely aligned with Neptune, exaggerating it’s mysterious power to dissolve structures, disappear boundaries, and encourage the imagination to soar. What once seemed to be on solid ground could dissolve quickly under Pisces influence. Knowing when to hide one’s plans and when to reveal them could be an issue.
Drawing others into a compelling vision of reality, or being drawn in yourself is a possibility.
The Moon is placed in the 28th degree of Pisces, very close to the final degree of the sign. This highly refined energy could be hard to direct and control. Pisces is all-pervasive and immune to being contained. Walls and barriers will not prevent Pisces from overwhelming or dissolving what’s run it’s course. What’s barely perceptible could energize endings that are more profound or life-changing than they seem.
Pisces is slippery and non-committal preferring to operate in that “neither here nor there” space in between. The past, present, and future might be experienced simultaneously to reveal a spiritual clarification or profound truth about the nature of time itself. What exists behind the scenes and out of sight becomes more significant especially as it relates to a combination of practical, magical, and mysterious healing methods.
Intuition is especially strong. We’ll sense when something’s off even if we can’t define exactly what it is.
All full Moons present a culmination, ending, or clarification regarding an imbalance or the need for a course correction. We might have taken something as far as it can go in it’s current direction. Nothing further can be gained without some kind of change.
Most importantly he Pisces Moon works in tandem with the focused, practical, improvement-oriented, Vigo Sun. The Sun in Virgo’s light is reflected off of the Moon. They’re different sides of the same coin.
Working hard to make your dreams come true is an illustration of a working partnership between the Sun and Moon.
When Virgo and Pisces energies are disconnected or imbalanced something quietly destructive can take on a life of it’s own. Addictions and obsessions comes to mind.
Doing something practically useful tends to keep you grounded at a time when you could become lost. Communicating honestly and effectively clears up confusion. Doing what you love could make evading, avoiding, or lying unnecessary.
Pisces tends to err on the side of compassion. Compassionate strategies work better when Pisces and Virgo work together. Virgo is in charge of manifesting what you imagine. In fact under a Pisces Moon it might be possible to imagine something into being.
On Monday Vesta, the asteroid of devotion and the protection of what’s sacred, transits into the sign of Scorpio at 12:54 PM EDT The intensity of your devotion is dialed up several notches. This could relate to survival issues or the urge to delve beneath the surface to expose a silent “enemy” that’s quietly destroying what’s essential.
The Sun transits into the sign of Libra on Wednesday, Sep. 22nd at 3:21 PM EDT. The Autumnal Equinox arrives. For a moment the Sun hovers directly above the equator, in perfect alignment, before it changes course. Relationships, love, balance, and the ability to attract what you desire is energized.
