– Corollary Full Moon at 3° of Pisces
August 26, 2018 ~ 07:58 am EST / August 26, 2018 ~ 11:58 am UST
This new moon occupies Pisces at 26° and completes a cycle to its full moon counterpart on August 26, 2018. During this new moon period occurring in the 12th house of sorrows, reflection, solitude, secret enemies, occult and institutions, it won’t be long till we cross into reborn Aries, the house of self, initiation, dynamic spirit and the inner child.
Venus and Mercury give us hints to this shift as they’re already crossed over into Aries where they form a conjunction, Venus at 13° and Mercury at 14°. Venus is in detriment here as Aries is ruled by Mars and her feminine presence is suppressed by the male fire of Aries. Mercury may find our talks and communicative inquisitive, bold, and thriving off combat.
Adding to that aggressive energy of Aries are aspects to Mars applies a square to the sun and moon in Pisces from his perch in Sagittarius at 29°, indicating potential endings at this late degree before crossing into the calmer and more restrained, calculated Capricorn. Mars may have a final burst of energy before the Saturn ruled house of melancholy and focused strategy takes him. Men might find this shift presenting them with finishing a trip of a lesson or a private project, or perhaps it is discovered that some of us took on too many tasks during the Mars in Sagittarius period, leading to last minute frustrations in public and private. Whatever the case, new challenges in the Capricorn centered career field may arise and it would do well to clear the decks before this occurs.
While Venus at 13° Aries is already not quite feeling herself in her detriment, Saturn at 8° Capricorn squares her – indicated a possible strain in finance or difficulties in love. Someone may act brashly and regrets emerge later. Women or those with a strong female sensibility should be patient, both with themselves and others during this period. Be prepared by having that rainy day fund at the ready.
A retrograde Jupiter at 23° of Scorpio trines the sun and moon at 26° of Pisces. This strong, water influence should help us in our personal and private lives as we are better able to discover and perceive information beneath the superficial, discerning with a fine eye what we need to know and when we need to know it, our sense of the spiritual may quicken, promoting our relationships between the spiritual, occulted and those who move in those circles.
Black Moon Lilith at 14° Capricorn also creates a clash through squares to Venus at 13° Aries and Mercury at 14° Aries. Women may find aspects of their life at odds with each other, feeling disoriented and out of sorts as the struggle between the sense of work and authority, fun and play. The responsible mother and dynamic free woman will find their aims at odds and Venus will find their aims at odds and Venus will be too hampered to argue. Communications involving personalities like this may go awry.
Uranus at 26° Aries trines Mars at 29° Sagittarius, bringing fire into our lives. We might have erratic behavior when juxtaposed by the unexpected, or a rebellious streak looking for satisfaction. Creative spontaneity is favored giving the child-like Aries the impetus to explore her territory with Mars in Sagittarius behind the wheel.
We have prominent aspects to the north node at 12° Leo featuring a trine to Venus at 13° Aries and a trine to Mercury at 14° Aries, from the 5th house to the 1st house. The north node wants us to explore our sense of fun, creativity, and drama, to find the dynamic artist in ourselves, and aspects to Venus and Mercury in Aries brings the enthusiasm and child-like delight so essential to creativity and the arts. Endeavors move smoothly under such a fiery trining force.
