Forecast 9/19 Prioritize your day from its start for maximum efficiency, because once the Pisces Full Moon occurs at 7:13 a.m. ET, you may see the morning drift by you.
This may be absolutely perfect if you are in a place to take it slowly, but if not, organizing and clearing work very well. After the exact time of the Pisces Full Moon it goes void-of-course/ VOC* through the morning.
The Pisces Full Moon is lit by the Virgo Sun; this combination encourages the integration of your creative and spiritual ideals into the minutiae of your everyday life. Is there a schism between what you’d like life to be like and what constitutes your actual routine? Consider integrating some of the idealism into your daily grind, or perhaps its time to anchor your vision by creating tangible steps to make it so.
The Sabian Symbols** add texture to the interpretation. “Aristocratic elderly ladies drinking afternoon tea in a wealthy home” is the symbol for the Sun in Virgo. This picture of tea is a perfect reminder of the Virgoan desire for ritual.
One of the earliest signs that humanoid creatures were civilized is the ritual of burial. This is different than instinct; it is about constructing patterns that give meaning to our lives.
There is also wisdom and experience depicted by the age of the ladies, which speaks to the prominence of Saturn in Scorpio’s influence this autumn. This means that to take responsibility for long-term goals is supported at this time.
The image of a wealthy abode gives a weight and substance to the adherence of ritual. What can you do to create a routine that honors your values?
The symbol for the Pisces Moon is “The Harvest Moon Illumines A Clear Autumnal Sky”. This is an image of nature in direct contrast with the women enjoying their afternoon gathering. It references the magic of the harvest full moon, which is unusual because that is exactly what it is.
Since this symbol is the actual reality, the encouragement to produce is absolute. Visions need to be in alignment with actual production; life is speeding up and you may feel compelled to move with an unprecedented grace.
Once the moon enters Aries at 12:58 p.m., the overall energy of the day takes a dramatic turn as the rumble of an engine shakes the walls. Messages may crop up, out-of-the-blue opportunities and choices made.
One might feel overwhelmed by it all as a Mercury/Jupiter picture suggests too many tugs in different directions- yet the choice gets simpler when you choose the one that hits the deepest place in your gut. ©Cucinell 2013- all rights reserved
*Moon VOC/Void-of-Course… in Pisces, creativity may be high, if one is already in the midst of a project. Inspiration is more fluid than electric. This is also an excellent time to meditate and do conscious prayer-work or volunteer activities.
** We are still in the process of understanding the Sabian symbols, which were channeled in 1925. The spiritualist astrologer Marc Edmund Jones, took Elsie Wheeler, a clairvoyant confined to a wheelchair to a San Diego park with a project. He put a symbol for each of the 360° of the zodiacal wheel on 360 cards. She proceeded to come up with visual phrases for each one of them. They were done in random order and they have a magic that is hard to decipher, yet feels totally right.
