Moon talks to the fishes.

Each year at this time, the full Moon in Virgo is  opposite the Sun in Pisces.  Virgo Moon refines and rearranges emotions.  She needs a sense of order in the environment to be comfortable and at ease, and then she gets the work done. Pisces is a water sign, any form of organization is based upon the fluid memory of water.   Pisces is known for fog, illusion, spiritual impulse.  Virgo gathers in the harvest,  Pisces, the last sign of the zodiac, releases what is finished from the year’s cycle.  But here’s how they work well together: Virgo Moon can materialize the spiritual impulse of Pisces, and communicate it to the world at large.

This year the Sun is very close to Neptune, her modern ruler. A little further on we have Mercury, Venus and Chiron also in this mystic sign. Whatever luminosity was available from a Pisces Sun is fogged over with Neptune’s sea foam. To speak with Pisces is to release expectation.  Fish talk is wet and confusing. If Virgo Moon tries to hold a rational exchange with this mystical crew of planets in Pisces, she might do better with poetry.

Journey by Water       Sarah Fuhro

At night I ride my coracle,
to the dark shore, silver Moon

of the tree filled island,

where I will meet my dreams.

 

The last notes of twilight play out,

as I approach,
push myself forward,
in my round leather boat,

into the slender reeds,
the dark water washed shore.

I put aside the slender pole
no further use for rudder, for oar.

First I lower my human foot

into the cold wet,
sharp fanged swamp,
in a moment,

pause to recollect:
I carry with me, fish shoes,

silver scaled, soft as silk.

With these I know myself,

amphibious, and supple!

Both feet touch bottom,
and I push my coracle to shore.

 The full Moon in Virgo is a good time to analyze the dreams of Pisces. This is especially true this time because Neptune is close to the Sun, and the power of dreams, mystical experiences, music and poetry is doubly abundant. This degree of Virgo has a Sabian Symbol with the keyword: Unveiling. Neither beauty nor ugliness can be hidden during this full Moon. But to know which is beauty and which ugly is a task for the trained initiate.

Virgo is very much about hidden secrets, which allows the soul to work in seclusion.  Pisces is the perfect partner to penetrate the engima.  This full Moon become a visionary, a seer, a mystic, a poet, a channel to the hidden realms.

 An enigmatic figure, Black Moon Lilith, watches both Virgo Moon and Pisces Sun. She demands we give up expectation in exchange for letting wonder happen. Lillith is the frustration of women and the feminine in palpable form, when out of balance with the masculine. At this moment, there is a world wide transformation of the feminine in each of us and in social structures which are in a state of positive chaos.

The Virgo full Moon is already very beautiful several days in advance. Bask in her light; know that she is a harbinger of spring. The seeds of which Virgo gathered in the harvest season now fall upon the receptive wet earth of Pisces.  The mystery and poetry of this Moon will give us the key to the new season. The Sabian Symbol for the degree of Chiron explains what is happening behind the scene: ‘A fertile garden under the full moon reveals a variety of full-grown vegetables.’
