This Full Moon in Pisces occurs at 1:05pm EST (5:05 pm GMT) Tuesday, August 24, 2010. This Full Moon is the culmination of those things started during the New Moon in Leo on August 9, which started a period of introspection and discovering not only our inner child but also how to make that inner child happy.
Since the Sun has just made its move into Virgo (opposite the moon in Pisces), we need to note that the discretionary power of Virgo will affect us during this Full Moon. Pisces is about seeing the bigger picture, and Virgo will help us to understand the details of this picture. However, it should also be noted that Mercury is still in retrograde in Virgo, which gives us additional power of introspection and re-examination of the details of our lives.
We are still feeling the energy of the Cardinal Grand Cross, too, which was activated on August 6 between Jupiter/Uranus (Aries); Pluto (Capricorn); the Moon (Cancer); and Saturn, Mars and Venus (Libra). Because all the aspects in a Grand Cross are considered difficult aspects (squares/oppositions), we will be feeling pulled in very different directions. Be sure to be attentive to your actions; you don’t want to try to accomplish everything at once and end up not accomplishing anything.
