August 20th, with the moon in Virgo opposing Neptune in Pisces, we’re all romantic poets and nurses. Virgo-Pisces is the ‘sacred service’ axis—two polarities and styles of service, and sacrifice (to make sacred), moving toward the same center. That center could be described as an equilibrium of tending to terrestrial-oceanic spirits and tending to one’s own gloomy soul-pains.
The moon in Virgo wants to nurture integrated order; Neptune in Pisces wants to transcendentally live in inspiration. The emotional charge of this opposing configuration can evoke feelings of martyrdom, empathy, generosity, compassion, romanticism, and questions about one’s spiritual path. But this largely depends on our perspective: sometimes the moon opposite Neptune renders these forces complementary & resonant, as in a dance or a balancing act; other times they seem to be playing tug of war. When the latter occurs, the side of us that wants to maintain a comfortably controlled order feels that it’s in a push-pull relationship with our nebulous moods, addictions of the past, messiness and chaos.
The key today lies in the question, “can the poles of precise form and mixed moods take turns?”
Can you have a semblance of order & routine while also knowing that you’re moody and that you’ll encounter other loony beings or phantasms throughout your day?
Can you breathe in (in-spire) your inspiration knowing that the moods coloring the complexity of that same inspiration are sacred?
Finally, with the moon trining Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto, how can you use this awareness to help give perspective to others whose foundations are being refined, unraveled or cracked open?
Proclaiming this inspired knowing, it’s now possible to apply precision, focus & dedication to creating a grounded pattern through which results, originating from the wellspring of your bountiful inspiration, will flow.
