Sun is Virgo, 7° 25'
Moon is Pisces, 7° 25'
The Sun is now in Virgo during this Super Blue Full Moon in Pisces. No, it won't really be blue. The full moon during this time may also be known as the Corn Moon by some Native American tribes. Expect high tides to be somewhat higher for most regions close to Oceans with this super full moon. There won't be another Super Bluemoon scenario until 2037, so if there are specific hopes for manifesting during this type of moon, now is the time to cast those out to the universe for some productive outcomes. The Moon and Saturn retrograde are conjunct in Pisces, opposing the Sun. The Sun's opposition to the retrograde Saturn is not as difficult to traverse as when Saturn is transiting direct motion. Even though there are some challenges we may need to navigate, they will be the type that we can ultimately benefit from.
Mercury retrograde in Virgo, until September 15 is more likely to be the thorn in our side as we try to get our work issues and health issues back on track. Don't avoid them, but do expect that we are not likely to enjoy the answers and the outcomes, at least until Mercury stations direct and starts to move forward again in Virgo. Mercury is trine to Jupiter and to Uranus retrograde in Taurus. Be alert to short presentations of options that we normally might not encounter. The key here is to see the options in "rough draft" format. Taking advantage of the options will involve more work than most of us will want to put out.
Venus retrograde in Leo is almost done with the review, and will station direct on September 4, the same date that Jupiter will station retrograde in Taurus. If we have been struggling to build a partnership, or develop a strategy to improve our financial situation, options will begin to improve after the first week of September, as Venus treks forward again in Leo. Venus is square to Jupiter in Taurus, giving us some quick glimpses of future prospects, but not quite giving us the full pictures.
Mars in Libra is forming an inconjunct (quincunx) to Saturn retrograde in Pisces. Expect some confusing messaging from this one, as we are likely to wonder what to make of some of the reports. It may be in our best interest to rely on intuition within difficult situations, as the intent of information may be lost in transmission.
Uranus retrograde in Taurus is being connected to Pluto retrograde in Capricorn via Neptune retrograde in Pisces via sextile. These generational planets that transit so slowly around the Sun, have sage advice for us. Unfortunately, we rarely take the time to listen because the advice unfolds at a snail's pace. It will make more sense in a few months, but for now, we need to listen patiently.
For the most part, during this full moon, we need to dust off our self-reliance as we navigate through some difficult circumstances. We know how to do it, even though we may not want to. It's not about making huge changes at this point. It is more about gradually letting go of outdated behaviors and exploring how that makes us feel. We have a lot of Mutable placements within this full moon that will help us to adapt to change. Finding the blessings within these changes will help us become more open during the next new moon in two weeks.
