Energy Report: Mercury Goes Direct, Sun in Virgo, & Full Moon in Pisces

I know. Just reading that was probably a mouthful of astrological verbiage, but hopefully after reading this you'll be more thought-full and light-filled, as we continue to move through these current planetary vibes. In order to gain a clearer aspect of how these energies can affect you collectively, let's first break them down individually.

Mercury Goes Direct

Many times we've heard about the mishaps that can happen during Mercury's Retrograde period, but what happens when it goes direct? During retrograde (Rx), a planet seems to be moving backwards in relation to its normal path. Eventually, the planet becomes stationary (still) before moving forwards again (direct). Mercury rules communication, technology and travel, and has been in Rx since August 12th. You can read more about which other 4 planets are currently in retrograde here. While in Rx, Mercury's effects may be experienced by miscommunications, delays, and disruptions in the above mentioned areas. Even though it goes direct Tuesday, September 5th, you may still feel its effects until the 19th. Some call this period "retro-shade", but I haven't found Mercury to be 'shady' by any means, just an ally to bring your shadows to light. Remember, it's all about perspective.

Sun in Virgo

The Sun represents identity and individuality. In astrology, the Sun dictates zodiac personality, and is based on a traditional calendar year of 12 months. Sun sign astrology is most commonly found in many newspapers, magazines and general zodiac horoscopes.

With the Sun in Virgo (Aug. 22-Sept. 21) now is the time to be detailed-oriented as the sun moves into the hard-working, detailed-focused, grounding energy of Virgo. If there is a time each year to take care of details, getting organized, creating new systems, or getting a routine going, this is it. Especially with so many planets still in retrograde. Virgo loves order so the more you can handle completions and getting things done, the better. This does not give you permission however to be a raging control freak. There is a difference, but the fire energy of the sun will support your inspired actions for these types of activities during this window. With the influence of Earth energy, now is also a good time to complete and/or organize details related to finance, home, business, your car, and the physical, material world around you. Go figure, the planet Mercury rules Virgo, so tying up loose ends and completion is the focus right now.

Key words for Sun in Virgo: Discernment, Service, Practicality, & Analysis.

Full Moon in Pisces

The moon represents the unconscious, instinctual aspect of self. The moon rules your intuitive or emotional energies, your innate reactions, and the things you need to feel comfortable or secure. In astrology, the Sun dictates zodiac personality, while the Moon, the second most important influence in your horoscope chart after the Sun, represents your emotions, and your inner mood. The two together strongly influence your emotional mode of operation. When the Moon is found in Pisces, emotions and dreams are likely to be more pronounced.

During a full moon, the entire face of the moon is illumined and can be seen from Earth. A full moon can be a time to go deeper inwards, illuminating your own shadows, discerning what serves you and what doesn't. A full moon can be a time to release and surrender. It can also be a time to give thanks for the fruition or fulfillment of things that have come. The Pisces Full Moon window is Sept. 5th-7th. It's exact point is Sept. 6th at 3:03 a.m.

Pisces, the most expanded Water sign, brings deep connection to the collective and the Divine. It is the spiritual seeker of the zodiac. You may find during this time you are drawn to go deeper into your spirituality, purpose and how you can be of greater service to humanity. Pisces provides spiritual nourishment through selfless service. Pisces, the final sign of the zodiac, and has much to do with sensitivity to self, other people, and the mysterious, unseen forces that shape our world.

Key words for Full Moon in Pisces: Intuitive, Clairvoyant, Compassionate, Passive, & Dreamy.

Reflection: Begin by finding your space. Take a few deep breaths to become present with yourself, and this moment. Intentionally release any energy that is not yours. When ready, ask yourself these questions and see what comes up for you.

*What is no longer serving you? What are you willing to release in order to receive better?

*What insight, repetitive thoughts, or dreams have you noticed? How can you honor them?

*What areas in life do you need to make final completions, in order to move forward with more freedom and grace?

*How can you be of greater service to those around you? Do you have/can you create a platform that could use some investment, refining or restructuring?

*In what ways can you deepen your connection to Spirit, and to yourself?
