There will be a full blue moon in Pisces on August 31, 2012 at 6:59 am PDT for those in California, or 1:59 pm UTC for everyone else. Don’t expect the moon to be the color blue, just recognize it as the folk term that people use when there are two full moons in the same month. During the new moon we reset our emotions and intentions for the upcoming month. During the full moon, we evaluate and measure the activity that helps us to meeting our goals.
During the Pisces full moon, humanity’s role between the divine and the animal kingdom is highlighted. This is a time when the circle of life is vivid in your daily tasks as the circle of the full moon echoes wholeness, completion and achievement through the ingenues Mercury ruled Virgo and the boundless creativity of Neptune ruled Pisces. With the sun in Virgo and the moon in Pisces, Pluto in Capricorn helps to harmonize the scrutinizing focus of Virgo to shift passionate Piscean hopes and dreams into a menagerie of manifestation. Neptune’s vast multidimensional vision plays a very important role in manifesting the hope and faith that help humanity to prosper during the darker moments history.
In Astrophysics, the planet Neptune is a gas giant that is the 8th planet from the sun. Discovered in 1846 by French Mathematician Urbain Le Verrier, Neptune is made up mostly of hydrogen, helium, ice, water, ammonia and methane. Neptune shares more similarities with Uranus than it does with the other gas giants, Saturn and Jupiter. Neptune takes approximately 165 earth years to orbit the sun once, has 12 moons, and spends almost 14 years in each zodiac constellation of the ecliptic. Neptune was the first planet to be discovered using the mathematics of astrophysics instead of observation through a telescope. like Uranus, Neptune has very faint rings. These planetary rings are rarely seen in photos.
In mythology, Neptune is the god of the sea that is also associated with or known as the Olympian god Poseidon, ruler of Atlantis. Neptune can deny or provide safe passage on the sea for mariners. He carries a trident that controls all bodies of water, creates horses, storms and generates earthquakes.
The Pisces sign symbolizes two fishes swimming in opposite directions that are tied to one another at the tail. This represents the duality of the watery, mutable, flowing and adaptable Pisces nature. One fish is assertive, positive and swimming upstream. Conversely, the other fish is receptive, negative (or magnetic) and swimming downstream.
There are many myths that explain the origins of the Pisces symbol. All accounts start with Typhon attacking mount Olympus, causing the Olympian gods to run for their lives. Typhon was the last of the children to be born to Tartarus and Gaia and was known as the “Father of all monsters.” Typhon’s human upper half was said to reach the stars and he supposedly had over 100 dragonheads. —breath mint anyone—His bottom half was a gigantic viper coil that could reach the top of his head.
After the Olympians defeated the Titans led by Atlas, Gaia sent Typhon to destroy the Olympians. All Olympians changed form to escape. Aphrodite/Venus escaped with her child Eros (Cupid) to the Euphrates. In one account, the love goddess and her child turned into the two fish and swam off with the band tying their tails together so that they would not get separated. In another account, two fish showed up and carried mother and son to safety. This accounts for the many myths of cultures around the Euphrates where gods in the form of fish appear with enlightenment for civilization.
Jupiter/Zeus did manage to defeat Typhon and to this day Typhon* is said to be under Mount Aetna. There is another account where Venus and Cupid were simply lead to safety by two fishes; these fishes were placed among the heavens for helping Venus and Cupid to escape. Such myth about the assistance of the fishes can be associated with some civilizations around the Euphrates that will not eat fish.
Pisces is a mutable water sign that occupies the 12th house of the zodiac ecliptic. In modern astrology, Pisces is associated with or, “ruled” by the planet Neptune (also known as Poseidon). However, traditionally Pisces is co-ruled by Jupiter (Zeus) along with the zodiac sign of q Sagittarius.
The Pisces persona has two modes of interfacing with the world. One is kind, sweet, unassuming, charitable and nurturing. The more shadowy persona of Pisces can be passively manipulative and dishonest, not to mention extremely moody. The dark side of Piscean nature is the selfish escape artist that will tell you a, “disco lie” to get what they want and escape responsibility. Pisces tend to be one fish or the other, and the more integrated and evolved Pisces are a combination of both characters in polar mutable equilibrium.
The fact that Pisces is associated with a sky god and a sea god should hint at their incredible capacity for divine acts of heroism, courage and strength. While the Piscean spirit can mostly be identified with the playfulness of the dolphin, be careful not to upset your Pisces. An angry or unbalanced Pisces may lead to mortal combat with an intellect that is as fast and furious as a school of Piranha or as “gangsta” a “shark attack.”
We all know about the sweet Pisces that likes to avoid conflict. But don’t get it twisted. There is a tank top wearing version of Pisces that has no problem telling you what they think and what you can do to yourself. Be careful not to wade too deep in the waters, if you can’t handle the waves. Whether you are talking about the thunderbolts of Jupiter or the Tsunamis and earthquakes of Neptune, don’t make yourself a victim in a bad shark movie. I’m just saying.
Pisces is considered the old soul of the zodiac as they occupy the 12th and final house. At this stage, the seeker has experienced all of the houses and passes beyond the veil, leaping off the wheel of life into Nirvana, Amenti, Shangri-La or Heaven. The wise, strong, eternal and faithful Pisces soul, may choose to leap into the cleansing fire of rebirth and re-emerge in the first house of the zodiac as a bodhisattva. By choosing to walk the path of the zodiac until all of humanity is worthy of cosmic reunification, Bodhisattva’s are said to travel upon the earth with “Christ Consciousness.” Generally Bodhisattvas provide knowledge and healing throughout the plane of physical reality until all souls are ready to enter the kingdom of light that is unity consciousness.

Fasten your seat belts and get ready to jump into hyper-speed. With the Sun in Virgo and the Moon in Pisces, you are taking full advantage of the spike in energy from the ingress of the Virgo sun. Mercury in Virgo can try to oppose Neptune in Pisces, but the trident of Neptune is acting like a cosmic tuning fork harmonizing you with Pluto in Capricorn.
This cosmic dance is giving you the power to access innovative vision in all of your projects. The hexahedron Earth element reminds you that you are the electro-magnetic verb of action, organization and communication.

Your frequency and speed increases as you recognize that you CAN materially mechanize everything in your environment to count as a success.
The high definition screen of Virgo’s cosmic navigation system allows you to grasp the fine print of all the details while Pisces expanded consciousness allows you to integrate that into the larger road in front of you. The abacus of accountability is being shaken to the rhythm of Saturn ruled Capricorn’s fierce climb towards the top of the mountain of consolidation, success and completion. Each solar stride, successfully executed with unshakeable determination and perseverance shoot you to the scintillating summit of success.
You are an imperishable circumpolar star whose wisdom and warm light nurtures and guides each seeker out of the darkness of chaos into the anchoring solarium of knowledge, wisdom and humility.

Octahedron- Libra, Aquarius and Gemini
With Jupiter in Gemini and Saturn in Libra you, benefit from expanding your horizons and diversifying the activity in your life to avoid your galactic enemies: boredom and routine. You are very active but long for a Neptunian escape from your regiment of intellectual obligations into the dynamic and spontaneous world of challenge and creativity. Your intellectually airy focus is as sharp as its metal equivalent in Chinese astrology, sculpting out the endless possibilities that are attached to your immeasurable imagination. With the fiery full moon in Aries coming up at the end of September, you have turned the ignition of your jet propulsion system on and spark-plugged the combustion of action and reaction at home and at work.
This is the time to invest in getting your pet projects done because you are now taxiing down the runway, getting prepared for another supersonic flight of action and creativity on the platform of communication. As the moon waxes and wanes through the zodiac, expect there to be some hard hitting reality checks on the state of emotions in your environment. This is a small preview of the next shocking square dance that will take place when the moon, and the sun square off with Uranus. There will be a breakthrough for you provided that you are present in your emotions as an observer with the intent of understanding the conversation between your head and your heart.

Icosahedron- Scorpio, Pisces and Cancer
With the forces of the earth and water spiraling through the cosmic square dance of Pluto and Uranus, you are the ocean wave of high tidal change that everyone is wishing for. You are the living example of how mankind’s inner conflict could be resolved through the imagination, rather than the intellect. Your motivation is so high that you may not be sure exactly how you want to invest your time and energy. You don’t have to choose between duty and fun as your Neptunian insight combined with the power of the MerMaiden of cups makes your macro manifestations universally applicable at work, at play and in love. You are surfing on a tidal wave of romance that brings refreshing mists of optimism, faith and hope to the shores of indifference. Revitalizing the withering landscapes of defeat with the promise of euphoric heights that reach beyond the earth’s gravity well. Be careful not to make any promises that you cannot keep, instead focus on sharing your intentions while visualizing what you want for yourself and your loved ones so that those around you know how to support your watery voyages. Keep art therapy at the top of your list because it is sharpening your mental ice chisel of creativity. Thus, allowing you to sculpt the light that emanates from your heart and soul into corporeal reality. Your love and imagination is the thunderbolt of Jupiter and the trident of Neptune combined into a lightning rod of healing and compassion. This unconditional eternal love can turn back any tornado of tedium that threatens to destroy your kingdom of happiness, joy and recreation. Your icosahedron channels of cleansing are evidence that water can be as accommodating as the morning mists among the flowers or as catastrophic as a tsunami. So don’t worry about those who might mistake your kindness for weakness. Instead focus on the fact that water has memory and recall how much beauty that you create in the world when you step away from the drama and focus on being a creative force instead of a receptive one. Remember that one Pisces fish swims downstream representing Venus and the other fish swims upstream representing the higher octave of your creative force influenced by Neptune. Time to call on the fierce barracuda strength that is the pisces fish swimming upstream. Believe that no matter how fierce the currents are, you are an unstoppable force that will not yield until you reach the shores of your objectives. So remember to go with the instincts behind what you feel and ride the waves with wonder and abandon.
Tetrahedron – Sagittarius, Aries and Leo
You don’t need to prepare, because you are always ready for action. With the solar maximum, the solar eclipses, and the fierce T-squares of Uranus being channeled through the fire-sign continuum, you are the galactic class starship ready to shift the world to a higher frequency. As activities and projects pop up in your personal and private life, you recognize that you have reached full-tilt on anxiety and have now surrendered the illusion of total control and replaced it with collaborative control. Building hope in your community through action, warmth, humor and biting truth, you are a multi-dimensional time traveler intent on placing the world upright on its axis to get a more aerodynamic spin.
Your fiery passion is expanding through the strength and sage wisdom of Jupiter ruled Sagittarius giving you the power to motivate others to take expansive actions and co-create better environments. The vector equilibrium that is the strength and courage of Leo gives you the torque that you need to reach the escape velocity necessary to silence your critics and accomplish your goals with jovial fanfare. Enthusiastic emperor Aries will accept nothing less than all out effort to break past the sound barrier of survival and make the quantum leap to the cosmic cornucopia of abundance and rejuvenation. Like the three prong trident of Neptune, all three modes of fire mirror humanity, earth, and heaven. Reminding us all that everything we think and do is symbiotically connected to all events on earth. The Tetrahedronic tethers of intuitive brilliance and tenacity are proof that the heart has a brain within itself that leads back to the divine spark of creation. Remember to take a step back, cool your jets and allow the rest of the cosmos to catch up, because the speed of your thoughts may actually be the one thing in the multiverse faster than the speed of light.
Dragon & Jaguar
With the dear upholding the pillars of the four directions of fire, earth, air and water the jaguar walks upon the emission lines of clarity, skill and quality. These qualities harmonize with the unlimited capacity of the Mercury ruled Virgo sun. With the tones of strength and balance vibrating the reminder that, “As above, so below.” From simplicity to infinity, the energy of the galactic tones and the Jaguar bring artistic order and joy our daily task so that we can whistle while we work. The day of the full moon Lamat (Venus) will be multiplying star energy across the cosmos. Harmony and balance are a compulsion for everyone intent on increasing the abundance of love ushered in under the Pisces full moon. Those who are intent on creating a better world through collective meditation, organization and assessment over disdain and judgement, will soul train with the water dragon as this angel of the east dances through every meridian and chakra in your body and across the world.
Pisces is the ultimate example of the servers and saviors found in the 12 labors of Hercules and mythology in general. In the 11th labor of Hercules, the hero learns how to be of service with the help of Aquarius while in the 12th labor he learns to be a savior. Not the savior that we connect to religious beliefs, but the savior that we become when we chose to redeem and save ourselves and said experience is shared on the grid of collective consciousness. The windows into the eyes of the Pisces soul represents our own free will transmuted into divine purpose. Only through love can we surf these magnetic waves of hope, faith and grace. The golden chalice can represent the missing link of instinct that humanity loses when it chooses to stick with left brain science and exclude all other experiences. Pisces plays the role as the child of god and the higher minded link to humanity. The three prongs of Neptune’s trident can represent many things: mind, body and spirit; birth, life and death; past, present, and future. The Pisces mutable association with Neptune serves as a reminder of the complexity of consciousness and the various facets of understanding that bend through the prism of awareness. One fish can represent the active, physical love and beauty of Venus and the other can represent the primordial unexplainable vastness of light that is love through cupid. Together, like Pisces, they are the balance of the soul and the ego.
Perhaps each day we struggle to keep our positive and negative forces in balance we increase our ability to lead with our soul over our egos? Perhaps the two fish represent the ultimate balance of humanity’s collective reunification into unity consciousness? Perhaps as the mind becomes more illuminated with love, it becomes easier for the soul to navigate seamlessly from the seat of the third eye chakra vortex?
As we collectively transcend service and become saviors, perhaps the mind’s job is to mediate between the spirit and the redeemed personality so that we may enrich and serve our world better? Perhaps integrating adversarial archetypes with the shadow side of our own personality empowers us to heal and save ourselves and through that process we save the world? As we save ourselves and build rainbow bridges towards global coherence, we summon the alpha waves of shift that carry humanity towards apotheosis and cosmic unification. Saving ourselves while we save others help to create the dynamic new age structure that has begun to replace the autocratic systems that no longer nurture humanity holistically. The new moon egg that is the re-birth of Virgo, will start our rapid descent into the fall season with plenty of shocks so that you don’t miss the purpose of the show.
Pisces is the omniscient eye that seeks to free mankind from the three delusions that keep humanity on the wheel of life: lust, hatred and ignorance. The final lesson on the labor of humanity is “THAT WHICH CAN BE DESTROYED BY THE TRUTH, SHOULD BE!” Destroying, artificial reality and saving yourself along with your cosmic brothers and sisters, advances us, one step deeper into the Age of Aquarius.
