Pandoras tarot pisces november 2019
Good, so does the other Aries. Chasing, teasing, pleasing, and all sorts of intense sexual stuff is about to go down. Both love a challenge, and are more than willing to provide. This is a fantastic bet for a hook-up but maybe not so much for the longterm. Challenges could go too far and drive one of them away, or their selfish sides might take away from the relationship itself. They both party hard, dig the same values in their partners, and are super great wingmen. Aries completely respects Taurus; mutual respect is essential to their bond.
Aries is everything Gemini finds attractive in a partner. The sex is mind-blowingly good. The chemistry flows with witty banter, and you better believe their brains have been doing the dirty before they even got undressed. This is sexy librarian shit right here. While the sexual compatibility is off the charts, longterm relationships might not be in the cards for these kids. At the end of the day, these two might actually be too good for each other. The sex is equal parts emotion and animal lust. Cancer opens up the less-emotional Aries, and Aries throws all their passion into loving Cancer, which is enough to make any sensitive Cancer swoon.
The sex is fantastic and keeps Aries coming back for more, while the deep love and compassion makes Cancer pretty hopelessly in love with Aries. Expect commitment ceremonies and sperm donors in the near future. Aries loves to make the first move and Leo loves to feel attractive. When you put two fire signs together, it usually means explosive sex olympics. Better to just be lesbros with benefits. Borderline abusive behavior could easily become part of this dynamic. Virgos are already prone to worrying and fussing, and trust them to pour all of their energy into loving and caring for Aries, regardless of Aries reciprocating.
And Aries might not reciprocate, given the fact that Aries is going to think of Aries first and foremost. Aries also do best with partners they respect, and their differences will make it difficult for them to respect Virgo, which is a recipe for disaster. Proceed with caution, clamdivers. Aries and Libra are that couple. Once they start fully expressing their personalities, it might be time to divide up the fiestaware and vegan cookbooks. Libra values fairness and deep consideration before decisions, Aries values being headstrong and sticking to your gut.
Libra thinks Aries is a pompous ass, Aries thinks Libra is a wishy-washy weakling. If you can avoid this hookup, it will save you a lot of frustrated tears and grudge-watching The L Word. This is dangerous because the incredible sex is misleading — Scorpio is controlling; Aries refuses to be controlled. The two of them will start a battle for unhealthy domination as soon as they try to make decisions together. Their friends will do a lot of facepalming and suggest dialing things back, but like a car accident, it will be impossible not to stare at this glorious hot mess of a thing.
This is that couple you see screaming at each during Pride, and then making out in the bathroom at the afterparty. This is love that springs from friendship and a deep mutual respect for each other. Sagittarius loves excitement and adventure, Aries loves to provide the fun. Did I mention that the sex is crazy good? These two bring out the absolute best in each other, and love is a guarantee. The two are an odd couple, and one that probably will fall apart after lots of irritating habits and fighting about nothing.
When it comes to actually confronting situations, Aries will yell about everything and Capricorn will be silent. The sex is fun because Aries loves an exciting challenge and Aquarius just wants to see Aries get weird in the sack. One of those rare combinations where this could be fantastic for hooking up, or fantastic for the long run.
The connection between them is life-changing and deep, and as friends they are bosom buddies. As lovers? Not really. Pisces idealizes Aries, and Aries will walk all over Pisces without realizing it. This is one of those things where you know you need to keep the person in your life, but not necessarily up in your privates. Pages: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 See entire article on one page.

I am very fascinated by Astrology and if there were a school or a college that would give me a degree in Astrology, I would really want to get one.
I love Tarot cards and horoscopes and I take zodiac sign compatibility seriously! If you want to get insight into personality and behavior, study psychology. And, as a Cancer having been with a Pisces, yeah, that is so very accurate.
As another Aries April 15th, so not a cuspian who dated a Taurus, I had literally the exact same train of thought. It was soul-crushingly beautiful at first, and then it was just soul-crushing. Maybe one day we can all be lesbros. Who knows. Aries encourages Taurus to be more adventurous, and Taurus encourages Aries to be less impulsive. This is the case in my relationship! I was born at on August 23rd, making me just barely a Leo.
I find it mind-boggling that anyone would make dating choices based on when someone was born, particularly when there is no legitimate, scientifically-verified reason why the position of the planets at birth should affect personality. I used to post astrological personality and compatibility predictions for people at another queer forum.
These descriptions were totally made up and I often added a couple of contradictory statements. It amazed me how seriously people took this total bullshit. I used to make them flattering and positive, which probably helped… Trolling with a conscience or something. All in good fun is a tough one for me to swallow. Sorry to hear that your mum is afflicted by irrational belief in astrology. That must be tough. Ah, anyway, The Onion has funny horoscopes. And Weird Al had some great and accurate! I hear you.
Like, my last relationship was with a Leo and it turned out to be the exact opposite of this description. Seriously, what is it with dykes and this stuff? I feel like my girlfriend and I are the only two queers we know who are not into this stuff at all. I find it innocuous on the internet, but in real life these conversations tend to go on forever and ever while we just stand there giving each other little glances. My wife and I are history and science buffs as well as gaytheist lapsed Catholics, and are competitively crotchety about this sort of thing. I hear ya paperofflowers. I was hoping scorpio aquarius had more going on than that too.
Except I have to avoid capricorn like the plaque. But they say here that me n caps are beautiful together n I feel like a prisoner with any cap. This is the first time I see such a horoscope hookup for the queers and I love it. I kinda left a trail of broken hearts behind me because I love giving attention, I love to get attention and I love to love people. This is so amazing. I never tire of talking horoscopes.
So yay for giving me more reasons to blabber to everyone who will listen!! Did you and your friends hang out in cemeteries and try to put curses on the mean girls in your school after watching The Craft? I love this very much! Thank you! I tend to get a little offended. As a Gemini I get a little offended by these too. Hey, who are you calling fickle? I just think that the Cancer description highlights all my worst qualities: moody, needy, never wants to leave the house. A lot of the other signs sound like me, too, only a more flattering picture! I tend to do the opposite. I always have to laugh at these because I think I am probably the most introverted, least popular person that I know, but it is a nice little boost for the self-confidence.
I found the opposite! I am Aries to a T… asshole and all… but the relationship descriptions were totally inaccurate for me! I never actually noticed before that the descriptions of Aries makes us seem like assholes. Yeah, I kind of prefer the sidereal sp? Is it terrible that I find it kind of hot when women are into this nonsense?
Or is my skepticism oh so very Gemini of me? Good luck. Never believed in these until I read a personal profile on my sign and I am text book Libra and too diplomatic and indecisive for my own good. Always wondered though about premature kids though- my girlfriend is a Leo by birthday but a Scorpio by predicted due date and she fits a Scorpio profile better? Veryyy confusing. I just want someone to laugh at all my jokes and banter with me using hilarious grammar puns and esoteric pop culture references.
And to rewatch The Craft with me. Post that on science. Hail to the Guardians of the Watchtowers of the East — powers of air and invention. Hear us. I love reading horoscopes and this was awesome. I am very much a Virgo and it was cool to read about how I would interact with other signs. There are so many Capricorns in my family and we are all stubborn and practical and reserved and over-think things. I love this post so much! For the record, my partner is a Libra. Now tarot cards, on the other hand…. Ah, tarot cards. It works great! She lifts me up while I help keep her grounded.
Round and round it goes …. Unbelievers beware! This post just adds to my new obsession. Aries and Scorpio are a homicide waiting to happen. Pretty funny, and even if by coincidence, accurate. I reeeeeeeeally disagree. And also all the rest. I never feel right in these! Libra here, Sag rising, moon in Scorpio. Loved this!!!! I am a Libra and always thought that 2 Libras were meant for each other cuz of the balance thing! What does this dot have to do with me?
This makes no sense. What are one of those dots and or connections you may ask? What does MBTI have to do with astrology you might ask? You just have to learn to decipher that map, learn to observe and connect the dots because those dots start coming together and once they come together, they create the bigger picture. Hence, the upcoming AS astrology installments, where Kate will talk about the other signs and what that all entails.
They are merely symbols, an abstraction that tries to explain certain phenomena. Then you have other stuff such as houses that gets more complex. In Renaissance times, astronomy and astrology were almost inseparable, and Johannes Kepler, who proposed that the planets have elliptical orbits around the sun, worked as court astrology to a succession of German emperors. You could say that our knowledge about the structure of the solar system and the motion of the planets comes from astrology, but that does not give any validation to beliefs in astrology.
If there is no explanation, and you are required to believe without questioning, astrology becomes like a religion minus the prayers. MBTI has been heavily criticised for its lack of methodological rigor. You are both looking at it through belief and because of that, you fail to understand my point. My point? You can still learn something from astrology, MBTI, other personality systems and make interesting connections and those connections, whether they are epiphanies or some other thing, do not require belief.
Some of that information is not always insightful or useful, but sometimes it is and you can use what is useful to broaden your perspective on things in general. No, I just disagree with you. Pretty much everything requires belief. But too often, as in the original post, there is no mention of that and people believe or let others assume that the alignment of celestial bodies actually does drives personality and destiny.
I also still think that requires belief, belief that the symbols in those systems have meaning, that they are a useful way to organise your thoughts, that certain archetypes can tell us certain things about the human condition, etc. Actually, no, everything does not require belief and that is the main thing I keep trying to point out, specifically with astrology.
You can utilize astrology without believing in it, just like you can utilize the MBTI without believing in it. Of course, there are other ways of thinking, but in this particular context, the concept of abstract and concrete thinking seems to illustrate the difference as to the nature of how belief can be viewed, or not. You might feel the same way about what I am saying. Fair enough. Unfortunately, those discussions seem to be a needle in a haystack.
If the aim is to increase knowledge about oneself, why would you use a source that lacks any credibility? In a way, astrology serves as a history to modern day personality systems. By bridging these gaps, you get a better in-depth understanding of the self and or the nature of others. I got interested in personality systems a few years back. You might ask, so what is the point then or why do you care about this? Language is a form of symbolism. Not everyone understands languages and or symbolism as thoroughly as others.
Carl Jung further advanced the concept of archetypes. What are archetypes? Archetypes according to the very first line of wikipedia is a universally understood symbol, term, statement, or pattern of behavior, a prototype upon which others are copied, patterned, or emulated. You ask that if my aim is to increase knowledge of oneself, why would I use a source that lacks credibility?

Quite simply, astrology is not a source for credibility, nor is it a source for belief, which I keep reiterating. You can still utilize something without believing in it, you can still learn or take something away from it, without believing in it. Ideas are open, beliefs are closed. Does that clear things up? I hope so, because my head is about to explode, LOL. The simplification of personality types for efficient study is fine, but the arbitrary designation of these personalities because of when you were born is what most people find absurd about astrology.
That can some across to people as being intense and focused and successful. Weirdly, I found myself thinking season as an influence on birth made the most sense — in terms of possible environmental influences on embryonic development. Prolly moreso in past times. Seasons also vary geographically though, along with diets, movement patterns, and everything else you described.
Excuse me…I am mildly offended being an aries train-wreck. It may be true, but only some of the time okay? Well, maybe there are. You never really know what Capricorn Moon gets up to when it comes to sex. And I mean that you really don't know, but if you use your imagination, there is a good chance that whatever you come up with, Capricorn Moon has at least thought about it.
They would never want someone to see their Internet history. All Capricorn Moons are blushing as they read this and busily deleting their search histories. The good news is that Taurus Moon is game for sensual experiences. It can be anyone Capricorn Moon wants it to be and do whatever it takes to please Capricorn Moon with the exception of receiving pain.
Taurus Moon doesn't do pain, much to Capricorn Moon's chagrin keep erasing your browser history, guys. Everything else is fine. Taurus Moon loves sex for the sensual experience, and it loves to please. It may be just the thing to open up the Pandora's box that is Capricorn Moon's sick, strange, sexual imagination.
There are some significant differences between the two. Taurus Moon wants to stop and smell the roses on the way. Achievement without tangible reward means nothing. There is no point in building a great company if one cannot become rich and buy a nice house. Capricorn Moon achieves and strives for greatness because that is how it feels worthwhile. The good news is that it is happy to lavish Taurus Moon in all the furs and cars and jewelry it wants.
The only problem is that Taurus Moon may develop a bit of a spending habit that can make frugal Capricorn Moon uneasy about whether they can retire well. After all, Capricorn Moon - strangely enough - lives for retirement. This moon starts working at a very young age and the first thing it does when it gets paid is open an IRA. As the Full Moon peaks, Mars in Virgo will be separating from a catalytic square aspect with Jupiter while applying tightly toward a tense opposition with Neptune in Pisces. Mars in Virgo is moving at its fastest speed at the beginning of a new cycle with the Sun, but remains combust and vulnerable in its regenerative underworld phase as it faces off with Neptune.
The impact of Mars on the lunation can incite self righteous crusades and dogmatic diatribes in those unwilling to question their beliefs. Conflicts will erupt in which each side of the opposition feels certain they know what is best, unable to see past the illusions encircling their anger and rage.
In certain cases it will be best to avoid confrontation due to the unlikelihood of being able to facilitate compromise out of a genuine exchange of perspective. On the other hand, there is also a constructive side to the invigorating impact of not only the Sun and Mars setting off the square between Jupiter and Neptune during the Full Moon, but also the fact that within the present lunar cycle that both Venus and Mercury in Virgo previously did so as well.
It is remarkable that Mercury, Venus, and Mars have all begun new cycles with the Sun recently while simultaneously forming a square aspect with Jupiter and an opposition with Neptune. If you have felt disillusionment regarding yourself or others during this time, the putrefaction of past perception can fertilize a revitalized sense of self in the light of the Pisces Moon.
Allow yourself to find acceptance for past mistakes and lay them to rest, gathering the wisdom of the lessons you have learned to inform your presence in the moment. As the destructive storms stirred up by Mars opposing Neptune clear, there can be a new sense of potential to embrace through dislodging yourself from the constraints of old beliefs that have been dictating what you feel is possible to achieve. The Full Moon in Pisces will serve as a threshold gateway to pass through en route to the final last quarter square aspect that will occur between Jupiter in Sagittarius and Neptune in Pisces on September This will be the third square aspect between Jupiter and Neptune this year, with the first occurring on January 13 and the second occurring on June It will be wise to take time to reflect on significant insights and events that emerged around the time of January 13 and June 16 when the square between Jupiter and Neptune previously intensified.
It will thus be revealing to consider what new creative or spiritual directions were initiated in that have now reached a stage of development for us to harvest and share with others, as well as how we may be realizing a need to shed old beliefs while engaging in a change of direction from what was begun in At its heart the intensified relationship between Jupiter and Neptune beckons us to consider possibilities and potential rooted in soul more so than our material circumstances.
Jupiter and Neptune in combination become visionary planets connected with spirituality, imagination, as well as attuning to the interconnected soulfulness of our world more so than the limitations of our mundane life. The last quarter square ripening between Jupiter and Neptune can pull perception far beyond the distant horizon toward our most idealized dreams and fantasies of what we desire to create. We may receive glimpses of a future self to grow into, or a different facet of our identity we have been neglecting that now demands attention and engagement. Since the visions incited by Jupiter and Neptune may feel at odds with our present responsibilities, it will be important to find ways to begin manifesting them rather than pulling back into the comfort of the status quo and known security.
Jupiter and Neptune can direct awareness toward the cutting edge of our potential and following alternative paths into an unknown future where we have not already established stability. Fortunately, due to the Pisces Full Moon also moving through harmonizing sextile aspects with its South Node, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn there is greater likelihood of sensing a way forward that combines a grounded appraisal of necessary responsibility with imaginal inspiration.
The severe gravity of Saturn and Pluto coming together in Capricorn within four months can cast a large shadow which includes fears of being at the mercy of larger societal forces. There is nothing easy about dealing with experiences related to Saturn and Pluto, but the cathartic intensity they force us to endure aids in developing inner focus, determination, and courage.
The Full Moon mixes together the uplifting qualities of Neptune and Jupiter that can see the bigger picture and sustain belief in our capacity to help build new forms that can take the place of the societal structures currently in a state of decay and breakdown.
The Creation of Birds by Remedios Varo. At the time of the exact Full Moon in Pisces, Mercury and Venus will be barely separating from a conjunction in the final degree of Virgo.
New Moon in Libra
Mercury blending its nature with the unifying and harmonizing significations of Venus at the end of Virgo brings a piercing awareness into our present relational dynamics with others as well as the state of our own creative processes. As Venus and Mercury remain hidden under the beams of the Sun, continuing to regenerate strength, so may we feel an instinctive impetus for change and a rebalancing of both our relationships as well as our use of creative focus. The last time that Venus and Mercury formed a conjunction was on July 24 with Mercury retrograde at the end of Cancer, and so there may be many issues that were stirred up by the eclipses in July that we can now discern ways to mend or resolve.
Since the air element has been absent from recent astrological transits, the return of Venus to its airy home of Libra while accompanied by Mercury will bring a boost for increasing harmony and effective communication within social interactions. Significantly, Venus and Mercury will continue to remain within five degrees of one another in Libra for most of September, making it an ideal month to revitalize our sense of style and arrangement of aesthetics.
It can also be a fruitful time for constructing collaborative arrangements that bring together disparate talents and gifts into a unified, artful whole of creative expression. During the week of the Libra Equinox we can gain a stronger sense for however we need to rearrange our priorities and goals in light of whatever deep changes have been happening this year. Whatever has come out of balance will be obvious, and we will feel driven to make reparations in personal as well as collective spheres of engagement.
The Full Moon in Pisces ripening in this face asks us to contemplate the inner images of inspiration that have been motivating all of our work in the world, the full implications of our dream as well as how well it truly fits our sense of soul purpose. Fittingly, the ancient Hellenistic text The 36 Airs of the Zodiac attributed the figure of Elpis, the daimon of Hope, to the third decan of Pisces.
The guiding star we wish upon, the guardian angel we pray to for assistance, the hope we are able to muster in even the bleakest and most desperate of times, is essential to the meaning found in the third face of Pisces, the final face of the zodiac full of the passion required to move through the end and rebirth of the entire cycle. The face and body of the beloved are a mask, an entry point into the experience of all-as-bliss. The grandiose dreams of ecstatic bliss as well as the agony of loss that comes from misguided investment in ideals that Coppock attributed to the third face of Pisces are further shown through the fact that Mars is the ruler of this decan.
As previously mentioned, during the Pisces Full Moon the fiery red planet will be occupying the opposite place of Virgo and forming a perfect opposition to the planet of dreams and illusions, Neptune. Mars in Virgo is at the earliest stages of its synodic cycle, having recently been reborn in the heart of the Sun on September 2, a few days after the inception of the present lunar cycle.
Rather than rearranging the surface elements of daily goals and to-do lists, it may be necessary to go to the heart of your inner storyteller to re-conceptualize and rewrite the source of the story you are living in the moment. I enjoyed our conversation and hope you do too!
Following the radiant and raging fire set by the Leo Sun during August in which the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Mars were all occupying the sign of the Lion, the New Moon in Virgo on August 30 initiates us into a month dominated by the cool calculations of Virgo. Mythic themes shared by these figures include facing the grief of loss, whether over the loss of a beloved or the loss of justice, ideals, and integrity within humanity. Mercury joins the Sun and Moon in Virgo, the home and exaltation of Mercury, saturating the lunation with its capacity for weaving in between and bridging polarities such as spirit and matter, the rational and the emotional.
In the forthcoming lunar cycle we will need to rely on the ability of Mercury to serve as a psychopomp guiding us into and out of underworld experiences, gathering the meaning found within the dark. Underlying all of the changes in has been the pivotal relationship between Jupiter in Sagittarius and Neptune in Pisces. Jupiter and Neptune are at the waning square aspect of their cycle that began in and have been calling us to deeply question the beliefs, philosophy, and vision of meaning we have been living life from.
Daily Moon Myths with Agent 66 Sara Gilbert
Within the waning square of Jupiter and Neptune we can experience a harvesting of wisdom, a gathering and sifting through of ideas and experiences from their cycle through which we can discern meaning and resources to share with others. Yet the final square of their cycle can also incite a dramatic confrontation with how we have been shaped and conditioned by the surrounding culture, realizing where we have been led astray by illusory ideals or beliefs. Though disillusionment brings difficulties, it ultimately guides us to realization of what needs to be released and let go.
The Virgo New Moon brings an influx of planets in Virgo that will volatilize Jupiter and Neptune, as the Moon, Venus, Mercury, Sun, and Mars will be forming a catalytic square aspect with Jupiter in the coming month followed by a tense opposition with Neptune. The Virgo New Moon setting off the charged dynamic between Jupiter and Neptune is an invitation to make time and space for inner contemplation, digesting and processing the changes that have been taking shape within personal and collective spheres during the past year. There may be loss to process, anger over acts of injustice, frustration over plans not working out as had been hoped, yet it is only through descending into the depths of inner sensation that we will unearth the necessary insight that will lead to making substantial changes.
The Virgo New Moon in Virgo brings gifts for finding solutions that will be wasted by attempting to deny or escape from whatever has been happening. Since Mercury, Mars, and Venus are invisible in transition from old and new cycles with the Sun, the lunation brings the opportunity to descend into inner darkness in order to bring about a metamorphosis of our presence in the months ahead.
Yet as part of this process we will need to make space for mending and nurturance, keeping in mind that visible results may take time to form. In addition to the influx of archetypal forces in Virgo mediating the dynamic between Jupiter and Neptune, the waxing Virgo Moon as well as Mercury, Venus, Mars, and the Sun will be forming a trine aspect with Saturn, the South Node of the Moon, and Pluto in Capricorn in the month ahead.
This means that the Virgo stellium is forming whole sign aspects with all of the other planets as well as the lunar nodes, bringing the focused gaze of the Winged Maiden into analysis of whatever has been working effectively as well as ineffectively. The New Moon will promote taking action and doing the necessary work, being in service to whatever needs to be taken care of as well as whatever inspiration strikes. In the midst of handling daily responsibilities, set aside some personal time in which to open your imagination towards new ways to approach old issues as well as reception of inner vision and purpose that can guide you toward the next steps to take.
Hexagonal tile with Sphinx Mercury is in both its home and exaltation of Virgo, but is also in its invisible and regenerative phase of transitioning from being a Morning Star to an Evening Star. Since Mercury is at the end of its cycle it amplifies the capacity of the Virgo New Moon to transition us from old endings toward new beginnings, yet patience will be needed regarding the seeds we plant.
During its present phase Mercury is moving at its fastest speed toward a solar conjunction on the other side of the Sun from us in orbit. The speed of Mercury during this phase can bring an overwhelming sense of needing to sift through an overabundance of ideas, yet since Mercury is in its home and exaltation we have enhanced capacity to shed the inessential in the days following the Virgo New Moon.
This is a powerful day to meditate, reflect, and seek inner guidance for not only the beginning of new cycles for the Moon and Mercury, but also for a new Mars cycle. Indeed, Mars is being regenerated by the creative potency of the Virgo Sun at the same time as Mercury. Mars holds a strong influence over the Virgo New Moon in the archetypal form of the blacksmith who can melt down old martial patterns while reforging our relationship with Mars for the cycle ahead.
In contrast to Mercury and Venus being in transition toward their Evening Star phases, Mars is in transition to being seen again as a Morning Star in mid October. Take time to reflect upon the past two years of themes in your life related to Mars, while simultaneously revisioning how you would like to change and evolve the expression of Mars in your life. Consider what is worth fighting for or protecting, areas you need to be more courageous and assertive, places you feel pulled toward directing your passions and vigor.
With Mercury and Venus also beginning new cycles at the same time as Mars, the month of September will be a powerful period of revivification regarding the values and ideas we wish to embody and express in the world. Mercury will unite with Mars on September 3 about ten hours before it forms its exact conjunction with the Sun, bringing the guidance of psychopomp Mercury into the underworld rebirth of Mars.
While Mercury and Mars are at the end of cycles with the Sun during the Virgo New Moon, Venus is at the start of a new cycle with the Sun and is beginning to return from being in the depths of the underworld. Not only is Venus in an underworld solar phase, it is also in a place of underworld initiation due to Venus being in its fall of Virgo. Venus in Virgo calls for descent into inner senses and discernment, a willingness to be brought down low to the ground rather than struggling to ascend to exalted heights.
While dwelling in low lying places Venus can incubate insight from within, inspecting the foundations and the underbelly with a willingness to get dirty and get to the root of the matter.

Under rulership of the psychopomp Mercury, Venus can gather resources from subterranean places like Persephone. Although in its fall of Virgo, Venus has essential dignity at the time of the New Moon due to being in its own bounds, decan, and triplicity and so can use its critical eye to ascertain what needs our focus for reform and improvement.
As the Virgo New Moon begins waxing towards its first crescent light, Venus in Virgo is applying closely to a catalytic square aspect with Jupiter in Sagittarius and a flowing trine with Saturn in Capricorn and the South Node of the Moon. Venus will trine Saturn on September 1, form a square aspect with Jupiter on September 2, and then form a pivotal opposition with Neptune in Pisces on September 4.
As a result our newly revivified relationship with Venus will be shaped by the two major planetary cycles of , the Saturn and Pluto cycle and the Jupiter and Neptune cycle. We may feel stress and anxiety within relationships or have to deal with difficulties in other Venus related areas of life, yet there is a necessity in Venus in Virgo taking us down to confront the underlying factors at play in our present circumstances.
Venus and Virgo brings a gift for analysis, details, and craft with a magical capacity for productive distribution of whatever can be harvested from experiences. In particular the opposition between Venus with Neptune can be useful in stripping away illusions and utilizing the strength of Venus in Virgo for unifying and weaving together meaning from disparate threads of experience. In the image of the Eight of Pentacles we see a craftsman fully engrossed in the moment with his art, concentrating with full attention to one direct focus in the moment.
This image evokes the importance of taking things step by step, one task at a time, completing each aspect of the process with loving care and attention.
The Sun is the ruler of the first face of Virgo, and so since the Sun is in its own face it will seed the New Moon with the creative potency and symbolism of this decan. There is a grounding and self-assured humility that is part of the solar quality to embody in this face, and as the Sun continues to move through the rest of Virgo in the month ahead there will be ample amounts of creative potency to harness into our work.

As the Moon waxes in light we will be able to receive a more realistic perspective regarding the deep seated changes happening as well as configuring ways to find solutions to dilemmas. With Mercury also co-present in Virgo, remember that Virgo is not only a place of analysis and organization but also a lucid transmitter of imaginal revelations.
Eratosthenes and Hyginus. Constellation Myths. A new translation by Robin Hard. In part we talk about his approach to archetypes and synchronicity in astrology and tracking historical patterns in connection with planetary alignments. The Full Moon in Aquarius on August 15 illuminates explorations of inner darkness and contemplation regarding the path to follow into the great unknown ahead. Let the light of the Aquarius Full Moon nourish the seeds of rebirth in creativity and underlying values you have been tending during the past couple of months of liminal, mysterious transition.
The fixed, persevering quality of Aquarius can help in discovering the inner as well as external resources needed to endure a journey into new terrain, facilitating inner resolve to overcome whatever barriers we have previously felt were preventing us from following a more authentic calling. Not only are we now clear of eclipse season, but the Full Moon also brings the final resolution to the Mercury retrograde period that began in the beginning of July when Mercury stationed retrograde while conjoining Mars and forming a square to Uranus.
As the Full Moon ripens, Mercury will be moving past the degree at which it stationed in July while also reforming its square aspect with Uranus. As a result, Mercury will be inciting revelations which will bring sudden and startling clarity to whatever questions have remained murky and mired in the mystery of the recent eclipse season.
Moreover, the Full Moon is simultaneously illuminating the reseeding of Venus by the Leo Sun, putting us in touch with a deep process of regenerating the values that source our desires. While we may feel disgusted, angry, or upset over immorality and tragedy in current events occurring throughout external society, we have the opportunity to turn within to discover fertile richness to cultivate. The Full Moon in Aquarius brings the gift of utilizing Aquarian processes of patient, contemplative detachment to step back from emotional overwhelm in order to penetrate into the nature of current circumstances and discern how to catalyze necessary growth.
While we may feel like rushing ahead with plans, the fact that the lunation is ruled by Saturn slowly moving retrograde alongside the South Node of the Moon points to the fact that we are in the middle of a drawn out metamorphosis that requires further rumination regarding longterm plans. The waning half of the current lunar cycle will be bringing important information we will need to consider and integrate. The Aquarius Full Moon is conjoining the fixed star Deneb Algedi, the great star which marks the tail of the Sea Goat constellation in the living sky above.
Rather than becoming overly focused upon external validation for achievement, see what visions from subconscious senses are ready to manifest without regard for external standards of judgment. It may not be clear how to bring new ideas into reality yet, but by setting intention to nurture and foster their manifestation we can begin the process of patiently discovering the best course of development for them.
The Aquarius Full Moon on August 15 is forming an opposition with the superior conjunction of Venus that occurred on August 14 at 22 degrees of Leo. Venus at this point in its cycle is invisible and in an underworld phase that can be likened to the descent of Inanna into the Great Below to be stripped of her worldly possessions and experience death followed by a metamorphosis of understanding.
At the time of the Full Moon, Venus has just emerged from being revivified by the creative potency of the Leo Sun and is ready to begin her long journey back from the underworld which will occur at the end of September when Venus arises once again as an Evening Star. As a result, the Full Moon will bring light to however we are experiencing a transformation in values and aesthetics, the way we relate with others and the way we express our desires.
Venus in its current solar phase is as far away from the earth as it gets within its cycle as well as moving at its fastest speed, symbolizing increased capacity to let go of old personal fixations. As the Full Moon forms, Venus has been set ablaze by the radiant Leo Sun like a summer bonfire we can release old relational patterns into. As Venus begins to recover from being burned up by the Sun, we can likewise shed old issues that have been weighing us down or restraining our ability to seek or receive pleasure. In the next month, we can realign our external expression with our inner authenticity, deepening inner awareness of the fertile potential we possess to creatively actualize in the world around us.
Ultimately, Venus will be guiding us to manifest whatever we desire to create from within. The superior conjunction of Venus on August 14 was the first solar reseeding for Venus since 26 October when Venus was retrograde in the deep waters of Scorpio. It may be time to bury and put to rest some desires and issues that arose in the past ten months, while fertilizing those we wish to cultivate going forward. As Venus forms its superior conjunction in the same sign every eight years as part of its synodic cycle, forming a five pointed star pattern, it may be helpful to consider the strange resonances that can be found between now and past superior conjunctions for Venus in Leo.
There were previously superior conjunctions of Venus in Leo in August , August , and August The Aquarius Full Moon is also applying to an opposition with Mars in Leo, as Mars is about six degrees ahead of the union of Venus with the Sun as the Moon forms its exact opposition with the Sun. Similar to Venus, Mars is also in its underworld phase and giving us the opportunity to melt down old martial patterns and reforge our relationship with Mars to be more resonant with our developing desires and presence. The opposition from the Aquarius Full Moon can help cool down any excessive heat or emotional overwhelm in order to find creative solutions or necessary redirection of energy.
Mars will be reborn in the heart of the Sun on September 2, a few days after the upcoming New Moon in Virgo. During the waning half of the current lunar cycle, Venus will chase after Mars and form a conjunction with the fiery red planet on August 24 at five degrees of Virgo, beginning a new cycle between the planets that signify our most intimate desires. As Venus and Mars are at the very end of their cycle at the time of the Full Moon, their cycle serves as yet another symbol of the Full Moon in Aquarius initiating us into a process of rediscovering what we want in our relationships as well as how we wish to creatively express ourselves.
With Venus and Mars coming together in the secrecy of darkness during their underworld phases, we will be called to engage in embodiment rather than intellectual analysis of the changes taking shape through their union. Moreover, since the coming conjunction of Mars and Venus in Virgo will also be applying toward a flowing trine aspect with Uranus in Taurus, getting in touch with bodily senses can help uncover desires untethered to societal conditioning.
The close proximity of Venus and Mars to the Sun will bring a purgative, cathartic intensity to their union that will bring awareness to any underlying motivations we have been acting from that are no longer in our best interest. During the Aquarius Full Moon, Mercury in Leo will be applying closely to a catalytic square aspect with Uranus in Taurus that it will complete the following day on August When Mercury stationed retrograde on July 7 in Leo, it was within a few degrees of an exact square with Uranus.
As a result, as Mercury finally completes its square with Uranus during the Aquarius Full Moon we may receive sudden revelations that change our perspective regarding stories that have been developing since the beginning of July. We may receives flashes of intuition, instant knowing, and rapid insights that bring far ranging vision to mind.
After Mercury completes its square aspect with Uranus, it will begin applying toward a flowing trine aspect with Jupiter in Sagittarius that it will complete on August 21 while the waning Moon in Taurus is applying toward a conjunction with Uranus. During the week following the Full Moon, Mercury will be glimmering in pre-dawn skies, heralding the rising Sun while it transmits the uplifting and inspiring shift of Jupiter in Sagittarius moving forward in direct motion again.
Mercury in Leo is in position to activate goals and animate creative impulses into manifested results. Thus, the Full Moon occurring in the intellectual and community-oriented sign of Aquarius can help with discerning how to find a resonant role in the greater collective as well as conceiving how to develop burgeoning ideas into structures and vehicle through which we will be able to fulfill the needs and interests of others. There is a risk of exile and the uncertainty of no longer having the stability of the structures being left behind, but the figure has determinedly chosen the unknown over the known.
The Moon is the ruler of the third face of Aquarius, giving the Full Moon greater strength than it would otherwise have in Aquarius. As the Sun is securely comfortable and powerful in its fiery home of Leo, as it is simultaneously bathing Venus and Mars in its blazing radiance, the Moon in its own face of Aquarius can help us gather strength and inner resolve to experiment and take creative risks. By listening to the Aquarian guidance of doing things differently and looking at things with a different perspective, we will more naturally find the resources we need to support the new direction taking shape in our mind.
The Full Moon in Aquarius can help us cultivate a healthy dose of detachment from the all-consuming subjectivity of the abundant astrological fire, just the space necessary to gain the widening of perception needed to discover solutions and forge supportive connections with others.
Since both Venus and Mars are in underworld phases during the Full Moon, it is interesting that the Hellenistic text the 36 Airs ascribed Osiris, lord of the dead and the otherworld, to the third face of Aquarius. The presence of Osiris with the Aquarius Full Moon brings themes of fertility and regeneration to the forefront.
As both Venus and Mars are undergoing processes of death and rebirth, Osiris calls us to find resources and enrichment within the depths of our unconscious so that we will be able to nurture our own metamorphosis rather than needing to seek the kind of external validation that could condition the change underway. Osiris possesses a sacred quality of surrender to the process of regeneration, surrendering to all of the suffering that must be endured in order to fully nurture and realize our creative potential.
As the Aquarius Moon glows bright in the darkness of night, may its luminosity remind you of the inner light you possess in your heart that remains ever ready to guide you forward. The New Moon in Leo on July 31 seeds solar fire illuminating the dawn of a new lunar cycle, bringing an end to a month of eclipses and the strange descent into soul making and twists of fate that occur when our luminaries become devoured in shadow.
Though the Leo New Moon officially marks the end of eclipse season, its fiery light will be casting shadows full of revelations from the eclipses that will continue to foment change. Whatever came through during the Solar Eclipse in Cancer on July 2 and the Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn on July 16 will be cohering into new forms during August, bringing the potential to gain clarity regarding whatever shifts in storylines emerged in the past month.
There is also a liberating quality to the lunation that can help in making creative breakthroughs, as the Leo Moon is separating from a square with Uranus and applying to a trine with Jupiter. Just in time, the ever nimble Mercury will be making sure we get the message we need to receive as it will be stationing direct as the Moon and Sun unite in Leo. Not only is the Moon in Leo being reseeded with solar light in darkness, Venus in Leo has also descended into her invisible phase of dark initiation, death and rebirth.
While star power radiates from Venus in Leo when in her visible phase, in her current solar phase she has turned away from external pursuits in order to experience an inner rapture and epiphany. Venus is at the end of her cycle which will ultimately transition her from being the glorious Morning Star role she played previously during into the Evening Star role she will take on toward the end of September into October when she becomes visible again in the twilight of sunset. Venus will be encountered in hidden realms and in the shared secrecy of intimacy during August.
Venus in Leo is calling us to reconsider the values we have been living by as well as the style and aesthetics we express ourselves through and utilize to magnetize and attract what we want to create. It may be necessary to surrender to a metamorphosis of identity, with old layers of our persona peeling away to reveal a new sense of self ready to begin emerging.
There could be difficulties and doubts swirling around us as we recover from an intense eclipse season that was aligned with Saturn and Pluto, but if we are willing to let Venus lead us into our inner depths there will be passion, power, and purpose for us to discover alongside the vulnerability that comes within liminal states of change. Allow yourself to consider in the darkness of the Moon the trajectory of your life in the last two years, which desires you were able to achieve with satisfaction, which ones led you astray, and the wisdom you have gathered from all of the martial adventures you have undertaken.
If you feel anger and frustration over unfulfilled ambitions or barriers that have obstructed you while Mars is in the process of burning up in the Sun, look for healthy physical outlets to transmit the energy through. Mars in Leo has the fiery heart of the lion and the courage we need to descend with the star of Ares into the underworld to experience a rebirth of how we wish to wield the force of Mars in its forthcoming cycle.
As the Leo Moon waxes towards its first crescent light it will pass through a flowing trine aspect with Jupiter retrograde in Sagittarius that will aid in elevating vision from the watery depths of July into conception of how the volatility of eclipse season is coagulating into new forms. While Jupiter in Sagittarius was out of aspect with the eclipses in July, the star of Zeus will dramatically come back into prominence during August. Jupiter will station direct on August 11 on the same day that Uranus in Taurus will station retrograde, which is notable due to Venus applying to a catalyzing square aspect with Uranus during the New Moon, with the Sun and Moon beginning to separate from a square with Uranus.
As a result, the first couple of weeks of August will be full of the emancipatory influence of Jupiter and Uranus, inciting flights of inspiration and vision. For four months Jupiter has been glowing bright in night skies asking us to integrate and make meaning from our myriad experiences. As Jupiter stations while forming a flowing trine with the Sun and Venus in Leo, we have an opportune period to take stock of whatever we have been working on, the ideas for what we want to conceive and create, as well as the current state of our relationships and how to adjust our co-participation based upon the inner changes that have been brewing in recent months.
Meanwhile, the square between Venus and Uranus will shake up whatever has become stuck or stagnant in the way we have been relating with others or expressing ourselves. August begs us to invite eros into our psyche and let the fires of our imagination guide us forward. Amazingly, just as Jupiter is beginning to slow down to station direct on August 11, it is entering into an antiscia aspect with Saturn in Capricorn that will extend all the way through September Jupiter has been in balsamic relationship with Saturn during , bringing the revisioning and karmic release that always comes at the ending of their cycle.
