Moon enters Pisces 6:47 pm CDT
Sunday, September 7. The day could start out with lingering irritations. The Moon squares Mars around noon (CDT) then goes into void-of-course limbo land until it enters Pisces in the early evening. We could be feeling touchy and vulnerable for what seems like no good reason. I believe the root of compassion for others starts with compassion for ourselves. This vulnerability is a good starting place for that practice. To add to the sensitivity, the Sun in Virgo opposes Chiron in Pisces. Notice how you may want to tidy up your big feelings and seek a balance between order and open-heartedness. Tomorrow’s Full Moon will further illuminate the need for this kind of balance.
September 8—Full Moon: Illuminating. This is the last “super Moon” of 2014. A super Moon is when a New or Full Moon occurs at the point when the Moon’s orbit is nearest the Earth. Visually, the Full Moon will appear slightly bigger than usual, especially if you happen to see it rising. Energetically, a super Moon feels larger too. The axis of this Full Moon—Virgo Sun to Pisces Moon—stretches us from the grounded pragmatism of Virgo to the expansive connectivity of Pisces. In yoga practice, I’ve learned that the more I direct my weight into the earth, the greater I am able to move my spine and chest up and out from that downward direction. Feel into that sensation. This is what the integration of Virgo and Pisces offers.
Thursday, September 11. This is a good day to remember the gift of Virgo: the pleasure of good systems that support our wellbeing. What will help you detox from the stress of the last few days? The Sun in Virgo makes a favorable contact with Saturn in Scorpio. These practices of detoxification will help us move forward. Pay attention and make a plan. We get great support from Saturn to follow through with our intentions.
