Pisces energy is, at the purest of levels, of the divine. It is where we discover the true meaning of spirituality, the essence of merging with that unseen yet immanent presence that is around us all.
This is one of the most magically mystical Full Moons of the yearly cycle. Think back to the New Moon in Pisces last March & review the intentions you set back then. How have you done in the ensuing 6 months? Have you made progress or did you get sidetracked? No judgments are allowed. Just observe & then reset where necessary. This is another way to work with the lunar cycle, stretching it beyond the polarity of the monthly transit & into the bi-annual recurrence of the energy, first as an initiation & then, 6 months later, as a culmination.
As this Moon rises in our sky, all of the planets are retrograde. It is time to reflect on the activity of the past 6 months & make whatever adjustments are needed so that we continue to walk in our spiritual strength & truth.
Mercury in Libra is at his station, preparing to retrograde until early October. Who is a part of your world? Who do you partner with? Who is your influencer? It’s time to take a close look at all transactional relationships & make some evaluations.
Venus in Virgo is balsamic to the Sun, ready to release anything that is no longer of value. This kind of alignment can often coincide with a changing of the guard…a coming to an end of things long established…a closure or completion & an ushering in of a new set of values & standards. On an individual level give permission to yourself to open your fingers & let go as the Pisces Moon shimmers on.
And don’t forget that Mars in Gemini is gradually slowing down to his retrograde point in late October. Back up all electronic devices. Make lists so you don’t forget to attend to your obligations. Keep plenty of water on hand—pure living water—so as to keep your electrolytes balanced. Rest. Geminian energy, when stirred up, can result in nervous exhaustion so be mindful.
Jupiter is retrograde in Aries: direct November 23, 2022
Saturn is retrograde in Aquarius: direct October 23, 2022
Neptune is retrograde in Pisces: direct December 4, 2022
Pluto is retrograde in Capricorn: direct October 8, 2022
Mark these dates down in your Astro calendar. Then observe what YOU feel as each of these energies shifts into forward motion.
With Neptune closely aligned to the Moon, give yourself permission to BELIEVE. Believe that love & goodness will prevail. If you have to, turn off your media & give yourself a break from the calamity of men. It is still unclear which way the collective will go. That knowledge is hidden from us, probably because it does us no good to know too much. However, we are part of the ‘ALL IS’, the SOURCE, so we can hold onto that & maintain a calm heart knowing that whatever might occur, there is something more than just what we experience on this material level. That is the gift of Neptune; a connection to the GREAT INTEGRITY, the DIVINE, or whatever you may choose to call it. (And humans have called this force of nature by many names & in many ways!)
The Sabian Symbols for the wonderful Full Moon are:
Life follows its own course. We are the players & we are the observers. If we grasp this fundamental truth that ‘all the world’s a stage & we the players on it’, we will be better equipped to deal with the perplexities of this existence, knowing that there is something more that exists than what we see. Stay detached from the ego drama & just enjoy the show…
18* VIRGO: A OUIJA BOARD
There is SO much information floating around that it can be overwhelming to discern what we should pay attention to & what is not worth paying attention to. However, we must be cautious as we delve into the information available. Not all intuitions are valid. Not all instincts lead us to true understanding. So, DO THE RESEARCH to the best of your capacity. There is yet more to be revealed. Whatever we do, we must not just blindly accept the prevailing narrative because it is easy to do so. And, we must not allow fear to be the primary emotion as we attempt to ‘get at the truth’ of the matter. In our current global situation, there is a growing number of professionals from all walks of life who are beginning to question the ways & means that have been used to combat what has been labeled as a ‘pandemic’. Substantiated accounts are beginning to come out about corruption, coercion & deceit at the highest levels of governmental oversight. Never overlook the fact that this current world system is based on greed & avarice; a kill or be killed kind of attitude. Look into your own inner knowing, your true heart & listen to what it is telling you. Identify the LIE. Focus on the TRUTH.

Verse 16 TRANQUILITY
Allow the heart to empty itself
of all turmoil!
Retrieve the utter tranquility of mind
from which you issued.
Although all forms are dynamic,
And we all grow and transform,
Each of us is compelled
To return to our root.
Our root is quietude.
To fully return to our root
Is to be enlightened.
Never to experience tranquility
Is to act blindly,
A sure path to disaster.
To know tranquility is to embrace all.
Justice is the foundation for wholeness.
Wholeness is the GREAT INTEGRITY.
The GREAT INTEGRITY
Is the infinite fulfilling itself.
May you all find some comfort at this glorious & hopefully TRANQUIL FULL MOON.
