This week is a journey through the development of our ego, and clashes are possible if we resist the lessons in humility and pride that are also available to us. Those lessons can help us level the playing field and transcend our own inner duel of the sexes. We are also in dire need of naming and lessening the distractions that slow our roll toward our individual mastery and mentorship roles. How are we going to thrive if we do not fortify our genius with respect, dignity, and humility? Saturday’s Full Moon in Virgo helps us negotiate our health and well-being with ourselves and consider how real the struggle is to let go of whatever we allow to debilitate us. Are we ready to let go?

Moon in Gemini trine Mercury in Aquarius

Moon in Gemini square Neptune in Pisces

Moon in Gemini trine Sun in Aquarius

 

As we approach tomorrow’s Chiron-North Node conjunction in Aries, we are fueling up, so to speak, with today’s Gemini Moon alignments. This process includes a healthy dose of emotional detachment, higher consciousness, and personal power to fuel our intentions that should be focused on transmuting our trauma into golden keys to discover just how brilliant and masterful we have the capacity to be.

 

There is a talkative, idea-exchanging air about the day, asking us to engage with others light-heartedly yet inspirationally. We might feel like going for a drive someplace beautiful nearby to get away from the hectic headaches our work or home imposes upon us, but we should bring a friend or partner so we can have great conversations on the way there and back again.

 

So much of what we are after today is arriving at a metaphorical destination that convinces us our talents, strengths, and wisdom are beyond worthy enough to claim our brilliance in whatever field of study, trade, or endeavor we have embarked upon. This is a very powerful surge of future-focused opportunity staring us in the face. And while an outside opportunity may not be presented to us, the real opportunity is in realizing how capable and badass we already are, the amount of work awaiting us on the road ahead, and the end game potentials inherent in our master plan.

*Sun ingresses Pisces at 11:14pm EST (Sunday night)*

Moon in Cancer trine Saturn in Pisces

*Chiron conjunct Moon’s North Node in Aries*

Moon in Cancer sextile Jupiter in Taurus

 

Though Sun entered Pisces late last night, I am delineating that today. This of course marks the annual beginning of Pisces season. A time when we arrive with our diverse array of new ideas, ideals, and visions at the vast deep sea of possibility. These high-minded visions can begin to coalesce with the unseen forces and mysteries surrounding us, thereby guiding us and revealing to us just how formidable and willing the world is to delight in our efforts to manifest them into our tangible reality.

 

This is all tied in to our deepening emotional experience of our deeply personal voyage through life. As I mentioned in a talk I gave back in December about this Chiron-North Node conjunction, we are fortifying our will to not just survive, but to thrive. What exactly is it that we want to will into existence in our lives? Have we taken a long hard look at all the facets of our lives to determine what it is we are desiring to bring into being for a much more glorious future? Our distractions need to dwindle, our confidence needs to surge, and our determination needs to be fortified and unwavering if we are to brush the most eloquent strokes of genius onto our life’s canvas. Securing our sustainability with such fortification can ensure our emotional security too, thus basking our life in a sense of serenity and satisfaction we have not felt before.

 

As Chiron begins its journey through the northern reaches of Moon’s path, we too begin our journey in the direction of wisdom, mentorship, and mastery. Humility, focus, and determination are essential to get there.

Moon in Cancer square its nodes and Chiron in Aries

Moon in Cancer sextile Uranus in Taurus

 

Today we are checking in with our emotional body to see how we are faring the swells of this mighty and unforgiving sea. Do we feel as though we are on a road of contentment, a road of massive change, or a road of devastation? Is that road going to smooth out or get rockier when we go around the next bend? Though life can devastate us and throw us around like a beach ball sometimes, how do we respond and react to such challenges? Are we hopeful? Are we victims? Are we even aware of how we respond and react?

 

These emotional swings sometimes need a little lubrication so they don’t squeak from so much back and forth. Is it time we jump ship and land on our own two feet and walk away? These are very personal considerations that we all should ponder, especially when we find ourselves in the thick of difficult or painful situations. Maybe if we concentrate intently enough we can figure out just how honest we have been with ourselves about what we truly want from life. Perhaps it is as simple as tranquility. What inspires us to find our peace and joy?

Moon in Leo opposite Pluto in Aquarius

Moon in Leo opposite Venus and Mars in Aquarius

 

Our excitement for life today could spark some valuable growth in the department of inner awakening. We might feel less inhibited to express ourselves creatively, less afraid to expose our individuality, and more inclined to wag our tail and relish our own swagger. This is not to say that some highfalutin personality police won’t pass their demeaning judgement upon us, but we have quite a bit of juice in our tanks to devoid ourselves of caring what they think.

 

Once we experience what it is like to boldly let go of our inhibitions, we begin to recognize how afraid we have been for so long, and we rapidly become liberated enough to find pride in our individuality. The following challenge is of course balancing our pride with humility. When we set ourselves free from the chains of other people’s judgement, we truly embark upon our voyage of life.

 

We are presented with an opportunity to consider not just the polarity of the sexes and how we feel about that deep within, but the underlying sanctity of these two opposing forces within us. It is likely we could experience a clash of egos on a more mundane front, thus igniting and exposing any imbalance of these polarities in our own conditioning. While this may be unwelcomed and prove aggravating, if we check in with our own conditioning and perspectives, we might find some invaluable lessons lurking there for us to embrace and take to heart.

*Venus conjunct Mars in Aquarius*

Moon in Leo square Jupiter in Taurus

Moon in Leo trine Chiron in Aries

Moon in Leo square Uranus in Taurus

 

Venus joins Mars in Aquarius early this morning, triggering any salty array of relational ego issues, so it would be ideal to channel this potential into personal reflection upon our own inner polarities. Checking in with our perspectives and attitudes toward the opposite sex is always a good idea, and this time we might find there is still a good deal of growth needed in that department. While it is relatively easy to think we believe and feel we are open minded and not antagonistic toward the opposite sex, there is usually some thread of our thoughts and feelings that still lingers around our conditioning and cumulative personal experiences. Let’s learn to honor the other with grace, love, forgiveness, and acceptance.

 

Complicating matters, our ego could be threatened by a lack of wherewithal to achieve whatever greatness we anticipated achieving. Perhaps we are afraid we do not have what it takes to get to where we want to be. Or maybe we have been led to believe that by someone whose opinion matters perhaps more than it should to us. Getting ourselves financially situated in a way that empowers us can be a very challenging task, and one that can unfortunately shape our own feelings about ourselves. However, the work always begins with our attitude about ourselves, and today loudly beckons this need into our lives. You are good enough!

*Mercury ingresses Pisces*

Moon in Virgo opposite Mercury in Pisces

 

Mercury joins Sun, Saturn, and Neptune in the sign of unity, timelessness, and delusion today, sending our logistics and communication skills off the cliff. Okay, not really. But we should not be too surprised when, over the next two weeks, we have a harder time getting our point across, our plans to coalesce with those of others, or find ourselves daydreaming about the poetics and wonderment of life. These Piscean influences are sure to directly affect how we manage our lives and share that management with others.

 

Perhaps this daydreaming plunge into the giant sea of life can be a bit less sudden with the help of opposing Moon in Virgo, helping to allay any delusion-induced catastrophes we might otherwise encounter in the rocks below. The stark polarity of chaos and order begins to chime in again this evening, reminding us that not everything is explainable. Ken Kesey once said that the mysteries are more important than the answers, and if we take a moment to consider that, we find this Piscean statement to be not just understandably true, but necessary to accepting so much of what life presents to us. We are not meant to understand everything. Not even a large portion of it all.

*Full Moon at 5° Virgo at 7:31am EST*

Moon in Virgo opposite Saturn in Pisces

Moon in Virgo trine Jupiter in Taurus

Venus in Aquarius square Jupiter in Taurus

 

This Full Moon in Virgo amplifies the importance of our health and well-being. Full Moons are an ideal time to let go of unhealthy or unwanted habits. The Moon begins to wane and fade from sight, allowing the release of something we no longer wish to carry around with us. Of course letting go of any habit has its challenges, and this is no exception. With Sun and three planets in Pisces, it can tough to make it through the challenge of letting go, but if our health is compromised in any way, we should take to the streets of our psyche and protest its insistence upon prolonging whatever is debilitating us unnecessarily. Our minds hold the keys to those jailhouse doors.

 

Establishing our forte, in light of recent revelatory transits and opportunities, may crawl into focus today, perhaps bringing with it a solid understanding of what kind of solid foundation needs to be under it for that forte to thrive. We are gaining respect for both sides of the coin of clarity and confusion. One implies we have control and one implies we do not. But if we know what we are good at, what we want to pursue, and what matters to us, we can roll with the rolling marine layers that drift in from the vast seascape by anchoring ourselves in those convictions. All we really need to do is believe in ourselves, know what we love and want, and preserve all of that the best we can.

 

This week shifts us through the phases of learning what we need to know, processing exactly how we will utilize that knowledge, and showing up to apply all of that wisdom as practically and productively as possible. The world swirls around us, and it is so hard sometimes to catch our breath and stay on task with our passions and desires intact. If we remain focused on what we want out of the whole kit and caboodle, we can at least know we put forth the effort necessary to get us where we want to be, even if we have to keep trying and trying to land safely at that end game scenario. As Casey Kasem said, “Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars!”
