Pisces Full Moon 2012 by Cathy Pagano/Kepler

The Pisces Full Moon occurs On Friday, August 31st at 6:59am PDT/ 9:59am EDT/ 1:59pm GMT.   People say it's a Blue Moon because it's the 2nd full moon in August.   Since calendar months are man-made, I believe that the real Blue Moon occurs when there are two full moons in an astrological month, which makes more sense if it's supposed to be special, since the Moon's cycle switches when this happens.   But you can enjoy the beauty of this full moon anyway!

The Sabian symbol for the Moon at 9* Pisces is: A jockey spurs his horse, intent on outdistancing his rivals.   This is a symbol of the intense focus it takes to direct our energies to our goals.   Since it's a Piscean symbol, the water horses indicate a powerful surge in the collective unconscious.   Imagine those foaming horses from The Fellowship of the Rings, as the power of Rivendell comes to rescue Arwen and Frodo from the Black Riders.   Don't be surprised if there are powerful energies around this full Moon.

The Sabian symbol for the Sun at 9* Virgo is: An expressionist painter at work. This symbol shows us how Virgo works to express her true inner Being.   Be an original and follow your bliss!

Other Planetary Influences

Neptune and Chiron are close to this Pisces Moon, so expect to dream big and find healing in the most unlikely places.   Both Mars in Scorpio and Pluto in Capricorn lend their tremendous energies to transforming the old you into the True You.   Neptune makes us ultra-sensitive to others, and Venus in Cancer along with Mars and Juno in Scorpio give us a water trine that opens us psychically.   Stay grounded and be open.

Jupiter squares this full Moon.   Jupiter has almost reached the degree where Venus traveled across the face of the Sun in June, opening us to loving thoughts.   Jupiter was the ancient ruler of Pisces, so along with Neptune, he is involved in this full Moon energy.   Jupiter in Gemini gives us the curiosity to dive deeper into the Imagination and bring back what is immortal from the depths.   We all emerged from the ocean, just as our psyches emerged from the collective unconscious.   Jupiter in Gemini can help us sort through and name the energies we touch on in the depths.

Uranus and Pallas in Aries along with Mercury in Leo add fire to the mix, engendering the enthusiasm, strategies and creativity to act on our visions.   The Lunar Nodes shift out of Sagittarius and Gemini on August 29th into Scorpio and Taurus.   Our next collective assignment is to transform (Scorpio) our values (Taurus) to meet our current global situation.   The Earth (Taurus) needs us to stop treating it as a dead "thing' and instead, get on intimate terms with Her.   We need a new relationship to life and this next year, until February 18, 2014, we get to work things out.

Venus in Cancer pushes Saturn in Libra to ensure that everyone gets nurtured by the new vision, so remember your dreams this week, love the people you're with, and seek "the peace that passes all understanding' as you continue your journey this month.

Happy Full Moon!

Cathy Pagano is the author of a new book, "Wisdom's Daughters: How Women Can Change the World". Cathy trained at the C. G. Jung Institut-Zurich in dream interpretation, then got her M.A. in Counseling Psychology in Feminine Spirituality, and along the way became a certified Life Coach. As an astrologer and storyteller, she weaves the Cosmic Stories written in the stars and from The Bard's Grove, comments on emerging archetypal themes in movies. Cathy works with the tools of the imagination - dreams, alchemy, myths, astrology, symbolic language, storytelling, ritual - to awaken the Soul's wisdom.

I believe that Americans are called to a higher consciousness at this point in our history. We are called on to live up to our ideals and create the country our forefathers imagined. Inner consciousness needs to be acted upon for social justice.

Cathy believes that our writers and artists must take up our responsibility to create art that inspires, teaches and heals our humanity.

Cathy writes about political, psychological/spiritual, and cultural issues.
