On Sept. 2nd, at 1:22am EDT, the Sun opposes the Moon in 10 degrees of Pisces. The Moon in creative, free-flowing Pisces makes an opposition to the Sun in detail-oriented, practical Virgo.

With this Full Moon, we are dealing with two stationing planets — Mars & Jupiter — both of which we will investigate in more detail during our upcoming Forecasting Forum on Aug. 30th. Jupiter in Capricorn is preparing to end its 4-month Retrograde phase on Sept. 12th, and is therefore exalted; Mars in Aries is preparing to start its 9-week Retrograde phase on Sept. 9th, and is also exalted.
We are getting ready to retrace our steps (Mars), and are looking for the moral high ground when it comes to our long-term goals or social structures (Jupiter). For a more in-depth interpretation of your own chart, feel free to get the Mars in Retrograde webinar here (unless you are already a Star Member — in that case, check your email, webinar was sent to you on Aug. 30th in the evening).
This Full Moon has six planets in Earth signs: The Sun & Mercury in Virgo, Uranus in Taurus, and Saturn, Pluto, and Jupiter in Capricorn. A heavy concentration in Earth signs focuses our attention on our relationship with our body, money, resources, and the Earth.
Now let’s first address this Full Moon’s polarities: The Virgo/Pisces polarity has to do with our ability to connect the head with the heart, logic with intuition, matter with spirit. So the question is: how do we integrate Pisces and Virgo?
This may seem a challenging question, given Virgo’s leaning toward detailed, analytical understanding, contrasted with Pisces’ call to open our heart and allow for all (including things that seem paradoxical to the mind). In fact, on an energetic level there is no separation, everything is interconnected — we need both left- and right-brain (the logical and the creative).
Ask yourself: What if nothing and no one were separate? Appearing to be different, yes, but not separate…
The mind acts like a filtering mechanism that helps us to focus and function more efficiently. Virgo analyzes, whereas Pisces feels, senses. Virgo seeks physical wholeness, Pisces reminds us of a greater wholeness — a spiritual wholeness — our interconnectedness with all of life, the allowing of all the mysteries of life.
To be at its best, Virgo aims for practical applications and to be of service, while Pisces learns to listen to inner/intuitive guidance above all else, using its imagination to bring love and light into this world, to sprinkle mystery fairy dust, and to create Paradise on Earth.
When these two archetypes are balanced within, we discern without judgment, serve with an open heart, and improve our daily lives without getting hung up on timing or perfectionism, bringing love and compassion to all of life’s apparent curveballs.
That said, let’s also talk about the shadow side of those signs, as we do with all Full Moons: Virgo’s shadow side is…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 8-12 degrees of Pisces, Virgo, Gemini or Sagittarius? If so, you are more affected by this Full Moon — this is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).
