A mystically empowering Pisces Full Moon highlights the week, along with a creatively divine Venus-Neptune opposition. Several Uranus aspects add energy and excitement, as do several new and peaking aspect patterns.

Intuitive flashes are available with the Sun quincunx Uranus, especially if you ask for them and leave a quiet moment for them to arrive. With the Sun in Virgo, breakthrough ideas related to health, service and procedural improvements are even more available.
A Pisces Full Moon at 9:38 PM (16°19′ Pisces) can be a clarion call to altered states. Rather than overdoing drugs, alcohol or escapism, why not connect to the infinitely more satisfying ecstasy that the divine can provide? This simple bliss invocation may help you.
The Pisces Full Moon can also strongly stimulate inspired creativity and deeper states of unconditional love and compassion. But be careful not to play the martyr or slip into aimless drifting.
This lunation’s aspects strongly support healing and mentoring (tight Chiron conjunction) and committed partnerships (Juno trine). Higher service (Vesta trine) and Law of Attraction work (tight Saturn trine) are also energized.
This Full Moon’s Sabian Symbol is, “An Easter promenade.” While Easter celebrates Jesus’ resurrection, each of us can resurrect our own divine consciousness and “promenade” through life without having to experience physical death. The mystical radiance of this Pisces Full Moon empowers this possibility.
A month-long Grand Trine that started on 8/23 among Juno, Vesta and Chiron peaks today and ends on 9/21. These planets connect smoothly to support the healing of sexuality, a theme common to Juno and Vesta. This Grand Trine can also help you find balance between the assertive and receptive aspects of your feminine nature.
An augmented version of the Juno-Vesta-Chiron Grand Trine also peaks today. It’s a kite with two additional planets: Saturn, and the Sun as the kite point. This gives the other planets a focal point for their energies.
This Kite offers stable, flowing energy for healing, especially in committed partnerships. It also supports stepping more fully into selfless service as a healer or mentor, and significantly enhances the flow of intuition and emotion.
This Sun-Juno-Vesta-Saturn-Chiron Kite began on 8/29, peaks today and ends on 9/14.
The third and final aspect pattern peaking today is a Sun-Vesta-Uranus Yod. It started on 9/5 and ends on 9/10. The Virgoan Sun and Scorpionic Vesta suggest transformative, devoted service to a higher cause. The tip of this “Finger of God” – Arian Uranus — suggests passionate, possibly groundbreaking humanitarian service.
Wealth enhancement is potentiated by Pluto sextile Scorpionic Ceres. This aspect can also help you positively transform self-esteem and energize mother-daughter relationships.
Libran Mercury makes several slower-planet aspects this week, starting with a square to Pluto. This aspect can help you speak important truths while remaining sensitive to how they affect others. Research, detective work and uninhibited creative expression, including writing, are also energized.
A Venus-Neptune opposition brings special opportunities in several flavors. Developing a deeper relationship with your own divine essence is one, and is a far more life-affirming path to bliss and ecstasy then substance abuse. This aspect also supports relating to the divine within everything in the physical world, and can also pump up creative inspiration.
With Venus in Virgo, your intuition may flow in to support health, healing and service.
Your mental acuity and communication skills can be strongly and harmoniously stimulated with Libran Mercury sextile Jupiter. This aspect, like today’s Venus-Neptune opposition, also energizes writing and other forms of creative expression.
Bringing your creative ideas into concrete form is magically empowered with Virgoan Venus quintile Saturn. This aspect also supports editing and fine-tuning work already in progress.
You can purr along industriously in matters relating to health, service and systems refinement with the Virgoan Sun sextile Saturn.
No major astrology events.
A Mercury-Uranus opposition highlights the special relationship between these two planets. Mercury represents ordinary rational mind, while Uranus, Mercury’s higher octave, represents divine mind.
Uranus communicates through intuitive flashes, so pay attention to any sudden insights. I have found intuitive flashes to be the most reliable information that a human being can receive! With Mercury in Libra, stay especially tuned for creative and relational breakthroughs.
Focused discipline can help you overcome any obstacles to serving your higher calling as Saturn conjoins Vesta.
Mars transit Sagittarius today through 10/26. This can support passionate questing, enthusiastic learning, fired-up teaching and euphoric sexuality.
Three related aspect patterns kick off today, with 2 Yods merging to form a Double Yod Key. For the sake of simplicity, we’ll focus on the Double Yod Key rather than the individual Yods (Pallas Athena-Jupiter-Chiron and Jupiter-Chiron-Pluto).
Feminine assertiveness, strategic planning and practical creativity can be powerfully amplified if the proper adjustments are made. Release or transform any structures in your life that stand in the way of your deeper embodiment of these qualities. Assistance from healers or mentors can be very helpful if your solo efforts aren’t accomplishing the task.
This Pallas Athena-Jupiter-Chiron-Pluto Double Yod Key starts today, peaks on 9/15 and ends on 9/17.
Extra caution is appropriate under a potentially volatile and accident-prone Sagittarian Mars sesquiquadrate Arian Uranus. Redirect this energy by taking immediate and enthusiastic action on your intuitive flashes.
It’s best to avoid starting important new projects or making major purchases during void-of-course Moons. “Business as usual” is the optimal strategy. Void-of-course Moons occur when the Moon has made her last major Ptolemaic aspect, but has not yet moved into her next sign.
