It's that Full Moon time again ✨🌕🌝
Full Moons are always special, like a portal opening between the human mind and the greater unknown... In Vedic Astrology, the Moon represents our mind, aka our subjective consciousness, and when we say it is 'full', it diametrically opposes (and directly faces) the Sun, our Soul. Full Moons are fertile and creative times, that is why the ancient astrological text Jaimini Upadesa Sutras relates a Full Moon in one's chart to authorship and teaching.
This upcoming Full Moon in Pisces is especially powerful because it will be on the top of a planetary Kite configuration - something that occurs quite rarely. How this geometrical shape is formed: Sun, Saturn and Uranus all trine one another thus creating a Grand Trine. This is a harmonious aspect, and it takes place in Earth signs, thus supporting activities on the material plane and bringing concrete value in the world. It's worth mentioning that three Retrograde planets: Mars, Saturn and Pluto are working on the sign of Capricorn. There is A LOT of energy being put into our public persona, our authority, and strengthening our place in the world - note that Saturn is in its own sign and Mars is Exalted. However, Pluto will ALWAYS break down the expectations of what it influences, so in Capricorn it shows the world that the layers of control and rigidity need to be shed off.
The beauty of the Kite configuration is that the Sun-Moon opposition triggers, or energizes that harmonious but also complacent Earth energy of the Grand Trine to take action. Moon in Pisces is key, as it stands on top of the Kite and brings a contemplative, introspective, dreamy solution to the concrete and earthy dilemma. The Moon sextiling Saturn and Uranus on the wings of the Kite will bring about opportunities for the solution to be implemented.
Virgo and Pisces, the signs of the Sun and Moon, are both dual, so they focus on IMPROVEMENT, but Virgo is more about solving problems, dealing with enemies, tackling health issues in a more deductive and investigative manner. Pisces, however, is the last sign of the Zodiac, where everything gets dissolved and cleansed. The Moon rules the ocean tides, and the salty tastes, and Pisces represent all bodies of water, so this cleansing and receptive aspect is highly emphasised.
Furthermore, Moon's Nakshatra will be Shatabishak, the '100 cures', adding to its healing quality, but not the Virgoan type of healing through logical deduction, but the Piscean healing through faith and surrender to something greater. Note that Jupiter, ruler of Pisces, is squaring Mercury, ruler of Virgo, deepening the tension between the man-made law (Mercury) and the natural law (Jupiter). Again, the answer now lies in Pisces, the sign where the two devotional and Brahmin Grahas Venus and Jupiter are very-well dignified.
Cards of Truth-wise, 26 August is a King of Hearts day. This is a very nice overlap with the Piscean energy, as Hearts are compassionate, loving, devotional. The King of Hearts would sacrifice everything for those or that which he loves. It's like the parent, sacrificing for the love of family, or the martyr, sacrificing for the love of God.
So, to sum it up, it's time to let go of old rigid habits that helped you endure some tough times but which are now no longer necessary. It's time to go with the flow, to surrender, to heal.
HAPPY FULL MOON! ✨🌕🌝
