Dear Friends,

Neptune moved into Pisces February 3rd 2012 to stay for 14 years. Neptune is at home in its own sign bringing the energy and quality to our faith and spirituality. Pisces is where you are an example for others to follow. It is where you do things with no expectation of return. Random acts of kindness, charitable pursuits and being an all around nice person. It is your inner self and your inner voice. It has to do with listening and being there.

Jupiter went into Virgo on August 11th to be there for 13 months. Jupiter educates, teaches us through experience and develops a greater understanding of the world around us. Virgo is the sign of the Zodiac that has to do with what you do in life on a daily basis. It is how you apply what you have learned. In other words, “do you practice what you preach?” All you have learned over the years is now needed to be applied. You need to own who you are by the way you perform everyday. It is not just every once in a while it is a way of life. Jupiter expands and we become aware. Your work and health are requiring learning new techniques to keep you in the game.

Jupiter and Neptune both rule the sign Pisces. Jupiter is the classical ruler and when Neptune what discovered in the mid-1800’s it became the modern ruler. They are in opposition to each other the next few months. A balance is required by what goes on inside you with how you perform externally. Jupiter will draw us a picture through your daily tasks so you can discover what is within. Awareness and being in touch with your conscience will be the key. I guess we could call it the authority within. Chaos brought into order. That is a good thing.

There will be a FULL MOON on AUGUST 29th, 2015 at 2:14 pm EDT at 6 DEGREES PISCES. A Full Moon always brings things to fruit. The New Moon on August 14th at 21 degrees of Leo sitting with Venus retrograde took us deep into our heart of hearts. That intention is leading to this Full Moon. The big reveal. When the Moon is Full it is in opposition to the Sun. The Sun is in Virgo and the Moon is in Pisces. The Sun on that day is with Jupiter and the Moon is Full with Neptune. This Full Moon is showcasing the Jupiter/Neptune opposition. At this point if you didn’t know what lurks within you will know it now.
Venus is still retrograde in Leo pointing to the hidden treasure. Venus resumes direct motion on September 6th and then moves back over the ground she has just dug deeper into over the last few months. Venus will leave Leo with a job well done on October 8th.

Mercury goes retrograde in Libra on September 17th, the day that Saturn leaves Scorpio to move into Sagittarius. The day before this Full Moon Mercury goes into its shadow to prepare to go retrograde. Whatever is brought up for you at this Full Moon is being interpreted by Mercury in Libra. It is about relationships and the need for balance. You get the information and then while Mercury is retrograde from September 17th through October 9th you get the solutions. You work things out. Mercury will stay in Libra until November 2nd. This gives us ample time to negotiate with ourselves or others to get things the way they work best.

This Full Moon in Pisces brings the need for you to have faith in yourself as you step in to the unknown. It is a retrieval of self. You have connected all the dots and the picture is clear now do it. The next New Moon is a Solar Eclipse on September 13th at 20 degrees Virgo. You know what that means! Dig in and get it moving. Clear things out of the way that are no longer part of the picture.

At the time of this Full Moon, Jupiter is in Virgo joined with the Sun. Neptune is in Pisces joined with the Moon. This requires some balance. A Jupiter/Neptune opposition is highlighted by the Sun and the Moon. It is a great time to let go of addiction. Anything you want to clean up and get rid of could be easier now. It is time to balance a daily routine with a spiritual routine. All work and no play!!! You know the saying. Or all play and no work is just as unbalanced. Healing and letting go of what doesn't fit anymore. Venus is retrograde in Leo. Venus is emphasizing what we need to do to follow our heart. Healing may be necessary or at the very least a little tweaking. Venus went retrograde on July 25th at 00 degrees of Virgo. An adjustment is necessary. This Full Moon will reveal it.

This is a symbol of withdrawal from reality in one aspect as means for regrasping it in another, here dramatized by a wholly unnecessary acceptance of the world's common repudiation or neglect of an individual's higher ideals. Implicit in the static symbolism is the need to be active in the cause of every standard or allegiance through which life has been made worth while, and the insistent stirring of an inner voice which seeks to quicken the soul in the paramount necessities of its existence. The keyword is CONSCIENCE. When positive, the degree is a rugged independence of inner spirit and a courageous rejection of all outer compromise, and when negative, utter timidity of self-interest.
