On August 30 at 6:36pm Pacific time is the Full Moon/Blue Moon in the Northern Hemisphere. The analytical, detailed, organized, servant and embodiment of the productive Virgo Sun is shining light on the dreamy, insightful, compassionate, devoted, emotional, expansive Pisces Moon. Earth element Virgo is good with structure, schedules, organizing while Water sign Pisces is not as they are flowing, optimistic & hard to get a fixed handle on and feel very deeply. Full Moons are about letting go of the unconscious, our aspects in motion needing improvement. Look how perfectionism, judgement can challenge the confusion, lack of commitment or isolation. See your challenges as gifts rather than mistakes. As without them, you wouldn’t have opportunities to grow or create change.
The influences this month involve not only the Sun and the Moon, but retrogrades and planets that rule the mind, discipline, emotions, unconscious, conscious, giving and receiving of love. It is time of potential great healing. Dr. Michael Lennox suggests you offer the following prayer: “I am ready to release anything known and unknown, conscious and unconscious, that inhibits my ability to fully express the life I am creating for myself.” He also states “Your conscious mind does not need to have clarity when working with the unconscious so directly.” I walk away with trust that healing will happen.
There is potential in this Full Moon to manifest if we are practical and honest with what does or doesn’t work or needs reviewed to correct course. Rather than go inward when confused to ignite a false story, go outward to discuss to get clarification and avoid misperceptions or false narratives. Life is always about adjusting as you gain wisdom when in the unknown, as you grow and learn. It takes both practicality and insight to stick to the course of our dreams. Focus on the areas that aren’t easy for you and ask spirit to partner with you in finding your path forward. Then get quiet and listen to learn.
Let’s see what the cards say about identifying and releasing what blocks our path to our dreams. I drew a card from the “Oracle of the 7 Energies” by Collette Baron-Reid. The card I drew is: “Let It Go!” The essential meaning of this card is forgiveness, healing resentments, shedding the role of the eternal martyr, letting go of victimhood, cutting the ties that bind you to a destructive story, releasing pain so you can move into the lesson it offers, relinquishing the need to be right. Some of the highlighted points the book makes that I want to share are: Forgiveness is simply a commitment to stop telling an old story so you don’t carry it’s burden anymore. If you don’t forgive, old hurts fester and become distorted, causing you pain over and over again. Say no to drama in all forms, and forgive yourself and others for engaging in it. If something is awry–whether it’s your perception, your emotional reactions, your judgment, and so forth–it’s up to you to clean it up. Forgiveness is the key to a liberated and meaningful life. No matter what method you choose, just do it!
I will add that recently I have these incidents of the past that have come forward in my memory that make me feel bad or wrong because of how I handled them in the process of learning. In the past, I used to delve into the negative emotion of my mistakes and make myself feel bad for how I handled it. Now I recognize the memory, forgive myself and say that was a long time ago. I did the best I could at the time. I have learned from this incident and I am better because of it. That incident happened to teach me to correct my course and become a better me. Thank you Creator for the life lesson, I am grateful!
Peace & Love, Susan
