This Full Moon represents the work we've done in the past weeks to acquire any newly found versatility (especially when it comes to communications and family relationships) and stability. The New Moon was a time for us to discover what was holding us back (especially in the realm of third house) and break free from it.
This is also the second of three eclipses in the span of a month (the first, a solar eclipse occurring with the June 1 New Moon in
Neptune is now retrograde in Pisces (two other planets are also currently retrograde, Pluto retrograde and Saturn retrograde), and will again station direct on November 9, 2011.
Though Neptune retrograde energy is not that much more noticeable than Neptune energy when direct (due to the fact that it spends about 40% of the time in retrograde motion), you can expect to feel much more in tune with the unseen world, as Neptune governs the hidden.
