FULL MOON IN PISCES – September 19th

pisces-tiny-blueSeptember 11th, is an important date for the Catalans and also for the whole world, and for completely different reasons, I mean that while here in Catalunya marks a national day, or Diada, this time was celebrated in a loud way, while the rest of the world remembers the infamous S11, when the World Trade Center two towers were attacked by two plane loaded with passengers. For some reason, I have decided that it was time to write about this full moon in PISCES, which is not formed until the 19th, but to which we are all heading, in the hope of finding some response on the issues presented by the new moon of September 5. This lunation occurs two days before the Autumn equinox, for the northern hemisphere and Spring for the southern hemisphere, which mark the point when the days begin to shorten or lengthen respectively. The trip to and from the darkness to light-
As we all know, this lunation as all the others, has its special characteristics. In addition to illuminating the angularity Virgo-Piscis, which confronts us with the dynamics to give form to our spirit, to manifest in the physical world (Virgo), the immeasurable, the ineffable (PISCES). The development of a technique (Virgo) which will help us express our divine inspiration (PISCES). This angularity speaks of the birth of Christ (PISCES) of a Virgin Mother (Virgo). But before Mary, virgins were not only virgins for not having been sexually ravaged, but because they did not belong to any men. i.e. As in the case of Vesta (many think that this asteroid rules Virgo, somehow) who struggles to find completion and fulfillment in life on her own, without the need to include the other, through meditation and dedication to a God or Goddess. Hence the image of the Priestess, who returns to the temple, to think and meditate, theme which also colors the Virgo-Pisces opposition. What PISCES brings to Virgo is also the understanding that no matter how much technique we may have, the spirit is not always materialized when one wants to. Picasso said: “I work all the time, so when I connect with the divine inspiration, it finds me working”.
The most remarkable or extraordinary of this lunation is the Venus-Saturno-Lunar Node conjunction in Sextile to Pluto in Capricorn, trigone Neptune and especially Chiron, and in quadrature to Pallas and Mars in Leo. The theme of love and the abuse of power in relationships between men and women, comes to mind, and interestingly, for the first time in India, the 4 men who raped a 23 years old woman in a bus, late last year, which then died in the hospital of the wounds inflicted in the attack, have been sentenced to death, with incredible loud reaction from men and women, in this country which clearly shows that is really changing. Saturn and Pluto are in the third Sextile of this cycle, in which they are in mutual reception, meaning, in a sign that the other rules. Saturn in Scorpio and Pluto in Capricorn. In various parts of the world quite a few sexual abuse cases have jumped to the press like never before and many rapists, some in their 80s have been held accountable for abuse of power over young people of both sexes, acts committed, in several cases, almost 40 years earlier. Saturn isn’t named “Lord of Karma” by nothing. It is difficult to escape the winds of Karma while you are alive and even after death, as in the case of Jimmy Savile, the presenter of the BBC, who has been found guilty of dozens of cases of sexual abuse, what has ruined his memory and reputation, posthumously.
In the universal Chart of this lunation, considering the Asc. as the 0 degree of Aries, the conjunction Venus-Saturn-node obviously falls in the 8th House or Gate into the world of Hades, which certainly confirms, the series of scandals of corruption of our politicians and authority figures, who keep coming to our Courts. the square with Mars and Pallas, speaks of more than one situation power struggles between two parties on issues of shared finances and/or inheritances. These themes seem to arrive to a pivotal point at the peak of this lunation. THE trigone to Chiron, reflects the possibility of healing in the experience of these themes which are very Scorpio themes. As the Second House talks about the money we earn, the 8th House or Scorpio, speaks to us of that money which we can have access to, but without any power, i.e., money which creates debts and dependence on others. Separations, divorces, inheritances, are all triggered by this lunation in Pisces.
Gemini and Sagittarius are also affected by this, specially all those born in the last degrees of these signs.
This lunation impels us to the analysis of our true intentions and the ability to recognize that it is time to let go of certain cultural and family patterns to emerge as individuals and live our lives fully. While it is sometimes easier to follow the road marked by those who were born before us and above all, our culture, before raising a flag, ask yourself, if you really are in accordance with that side you are fighting with.
Negotiations on possible intervention in Syria is what is on the table at the moment, internationally and meanwhile the number of refugees and displaced persons grows in the form of an invasion in bordering countries. The destruction on the streets of this country seems inconceivable. What is clear is that the number of people escaping the situation is greater than those who struggle, indicating that most people want to live in peace and to be able to feed and care for their children. We’ll see what this lunation brings to this situation, what is clear is that Pisces and Virgo also speak of discerning which side we are on and if we are on one side or the other, or as PISCES tells us, we all are ONE, we have many more things in common than differences, therefore, What are we really fighting for?
