This week the Sun navigates us through the first decan of Virgo which shows us how to use our natural born skills to improve the environment around us. The first decan of Virgo is associated with the 8 of pentacles which shows a person sitting on a wood stump etching away at 8 beautiful coins. This depiction is an initiation into perfect focus. Perfect focus is a flow state that when accessed can open up a divine channel. When we are so in tune with the process and work that we set out to accomplish, there is a meditative mindset that is accessible. Through the rituals of Virgo, we can access the higher consciousness of Pisces. By editing, omitting, and clearing out the debris of the old, we can more clearly focus on our tasks with ease.
The Full Moon is in Pisces this week at 7°25’. Through this lunation comes a large swell of emotional cleansing. Letting the vessel empty out to be refilled with the pure energy of the celestial potential caters to the Piscean process of purification. With great gentleness and tenderness of the heart, the Full Moon in Pisces this week can rejuvenate us with a renewed sense of hope. The Moon moves through the very end of Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces, Aries, and just shy of Taurus this week driving our internal compasses to consider how we impact the world around us. The last quadrant of the zodiac asks us who we truly are at our core and what we are intending to leave behind for future generations.
The great god of chaos Uranus stations Retrograde in Taurus at 23°05’. This shift in direction may or may not be felt by everyone as the outer planets tend to have a lingering effect on the collective unconscious. Uranus is the planet of culture, groups, and the invisible network which connects all people. When this icy giant stations retrograde there may be some internal stirrings and thoughts that crop up around our place in society. The way we think and feel about the collective is in review as well as how much weight we put on the collective’s perspectives. While Uranus is stations retrograde, Venus stations direct at 12°12’ Leo shortly after turning the personal planet of relationships and values outward. Once Venus stations direct, she will be unmatched and a force to be reckoned with. We may find topics of finances, money, and personal values begin to settle into place.
