For the week of August 28th thru September 4th, be sure to read your Rising Sign as well:
There is nothing quite so exasperating as coming up against a brick wall. No matter what you say. No matter what you do. You don’t seem to be making a dent in it. It’s like banging your head against that wall. The same with people. You think you can change their minds? Think again!
You think you can persuade them with the sheer force of your passionate entreaties? Not so fast. Does that mean you should retreat with your tail between your legs? Not exactly. It might just mean stepping back for now in order to 1) get a more objective perspective and 2) to reserve your energy. Which also means choosing your battles wisely. Things may not be all that they seem. There may be exaggerations, false claims, crossed signals. And most of all there are stronger than usual consequences for our actions. Use the Full Moon to center yourself next week. It’s not easy for an Aries to sit still when there are so many battles raging and taunting you to jump in. But just know that a certain amount of caution and circumspection are needed for now.
At some point you may be wondering what on earth you were thinking last week, as reality sets in. The enthusiasm and optimism that was a driving force, will begin to show its faults as you go through the steps to make these a closer reality. Perhaps you were being a little too optimistic? However, usually once you make a commitment you are going to go through with it, come what may. Just be clear about what you are getting yourself into and with whom before you get in too deep. You will want to know precisely what you are signing up for, and committing to. Be clear with yourself first about what your beliefs and standards are, what your expectations are, and then check whether or not everyone else is on the same page. It could feel like you may need to make some important decisions going forward, but Just having that clarity of knowing where everyone stands may be all that you need to know for now.
Be clear about who or what is worth you expending all your time and energy. It will be easy to be led down the garden path or to fall down a rabbit hole, especially over the coming weekend. Before you know it you’ve lost whole portions of your life. See if you can stay the course and focus on the things that really matter without being distracted by side issues and discussions. It will be easier to get back on track on Monday, even if the weekend turns out to be something of a loss. It could also be when you finally begin to make sense of the insensible, and are able to finally put the pieces together. It is also when you are going to have to pay the bill when it comes in. Pay attention to the days surrounding the Full Moon next week, and what may be coming to light. There could be some insights here as to what is holding you back and preventing you from growing. This may not be news to you, but it could show you what you probably should be working on.
It is important for you to live your truth, honestly and authentically. This will help you to make the choices that are presented to you this week, and to be clear with exactly where your boundaries begin and end. When making commitments, it is important to be honest with yourself first. That way when you make your case, you know you are laying it out clearly. It will also help you to make any important or pressing decisions going forward. As Venus faces off with Pluto and then Saturn this week, you are being asked to leave any whimsical fantasies behind, and face things exactly as they are. That includes having to confront your own fears and doubts. These are most likely to come out through your interpersonal relationships, but that brush with stark reality could be about almost anything you are currently focused on. Best not to push the subject if you find yourself being rebuffed. Wait for the tension to clear first. The Full Moon on Tuesday night could be thoroughly magnetic and illuminating. See what is being revealed to you through the mystic veil of this Pisces Moon that speaks directly thru your intuitive soul.
Many of us are being asked to effect some sort of healing in the light of this magnificent and mystically magical Full Moon. For Leo this is a Moon of cleansing, purifying and healing. And once you are able to purge yourself of that which you have outgrown, then you will be able to walk forward, freer, less encumbered, and so much lighter then you were before. When faced with a choice or a decision this week, the Pisces New Moon is asking you to take the road less traveled. Try something different. Be willing to go in a new direction, or look at a situation from another perspective. Even if you aren’t particularly seeking a new direction, it may just find you. You have a lot more influence in the world than you probably think you do. Therefore, if you are going to be making any changes in your life, make it a point to be the change that you would like to see in the world.
You’re not quite sure who or what to believe. There is a veil of innuendo, mystery, confusion and fugues that distort what you are seeing and hearing. Therefore, avoid taking things to heart. For they may not be all that they seem. Things become exaggerated, confused and distorted in this sort of weather, so best to wait and see before jumping to conclusions. You have a tendency to see the best in others, because you know what they are capable of aspiring to be. So it can sometimes come as a disappointment when they fall back to earth. All of this is culminating with a Full Moon in mystical and sometimes confusing Pisces, who beckons you to drop some of those expectations, and just be with where people are for now. It may not seem logical. But all will become evident, and possibly even illuminating, when you are willing to just be in the moment for now.
Libra could be feeling the pressure this week as responsibilities mount. You may be forced to make decisions between what you want to be doing and what you need to do. Could be bad planning (perhaps you were being a wee bit optimistic last week?), and it may feel as if you are being dropped in the middle of a hornet’s nest; but there’s nothing to be done when you’ve given your word. Just plough right through. And don’t let dissension or disturbing situations distract you from what you need to accomplish in the outer world. Focus on your reputation and your work. But also schedule some time on Tuesday and Wednesday for your own emotional and psychological well-being. Create your own Full Moon retreat, in whatever way is possible. A long luxurious bath. A night of divination. Pause for a moment in time, and just be. For Libra, the Pisces Moon is about self-care. Taking this important time out is not only important for your health and well-being. It also helps you to realign with your evolving vision for the future.
We are moving through a time of stress and conflict. And Scorpio will be deeply sensitive to the divisive vibes that are drawing and quartering the populace these days. Before you jump into the fray, do your Scorpio thing of standing on the side lines and making sure that you are not being drawn into something you really don’t want to be involved in. A little reservation will probably serve you well these days. The last thing you want to do is get involved in something you will later regret. However when it comes to love, partnerships, and even those you love who are in your care, you are on another wavelength altogether. You are more than happy to make whatever sacrifices, adjustments and changes you may need to make, even if it means tying yourself into knots to do so, in order to create your own little refuge, safe from the racket of the clamoring world. It may not be quite so difficult as it may seem. Take some time at the Full Moon to connect with your true heart’s wishes. You just may surprise yourself.
Before you totally commit to your heart’s desires, make sure that this is exactly what you want. This is why we have always been warned in the past to be careful what you wish for, because you just may get it. However, if you are sure that you are on the right track, and that you are not being led down the garden path and away from your best interests, then you just may discover a way and means to make that dream a closer reality. All the pieces are there. It’s just a matter of putting them together. The Full Moon next Tuesday is shining a light on your inner sanctum: those things and individuals that support you, such as home. family and community, the very foundations of your life. This may be where you need to start when you think in terms of making a bigger vision a more practical and closer reality. The solution may be even closer than you think.
Remember the old saying, that when they go low, you go high. One of the symbols of Capricorn is the mountain. And like the mountain goat nimbly climbing the sheer face of the mountain, you keep your sights straight ahead no matter what obstacles may be strewn in your path. We are moving through a difficult and divisive period, and being able to maintain your composure throughout this time will be sorely pressed. But rather than stirring up the hornet’s nest, step back, and wait it out. Once things calm down, then you can safely proceed. Just realize that it may take some time to do so. You won’t want to jump the gun. In the mean time, just realize that everything we do and or say these days has stronger than usual reactions and consequences. Pause to catch your breath around the Full Moon. The few days around the Moon could afford you the opportunity to see things from a different perspective. Allow yourself to do so, without judgment or expectation. It could prove to be enlightening.
Use the Full Moon energy this coming week to get some insight into how you might better manifest your dreams. Even if it is in only some small, however meaningful way. Full Moons are times of fruition, reward, and results for all of our efforts expended. It will be evident as to what has been the driving force that has brought you to this place and time. Where have you been investing all of your valuable resources, efforts and time over the past 6 months? If you are happy with the results, then you will receive confirmation for that. Perhaps in some sort of surprising and unexpected way. If your expectations have not been fulfilled, then you might want to think about what sorts of changes you might want to make going forward in order to fulfill your vision for the future. It’s kind of like gearing yourself up for the future and what could be.
The upcoming Full Moon is in your sign and shining a light on you in a way that is strangely illuminating. This Moon is about taking care of yourself, and all that that entails. It’s about physical, mental and emotional health and well-being, and the sacrifices that you are willing to make in order for that to be a closer reality. It also means being clear about what is or is not valid and true. We are moving through some stressful times. The world often feels divided with people setting themselves up in opposing camps. You don’t need to feed into any of that right now. For now you are being asked to just be. If you are feeling like you are in a state of limbo, or that you can’t quite find your footing. That’s okay. Clarity will come in its own time in its own way. Use the Full Moon to sit with yourself. Observe, feel and pay attention to what comes. Don’t judge it, or try to define it in any way. You will have time for that later. For now, just be open to what comes. It is lighting the way.
ॐ Namasté - Blessings!
