Welcome to the Enchanted Forest! Last spring’s awakening is this week’s fall harvest. Flip back to March 1, 2014, the date of the new moon in Pisces: Did you plant any “magic beans,” then (or in the two weeks to follow)? This Monday, September 8, the annual full moon in Pisces lights up the skies. A manifestation of March’s new moon, this glowing orb could reveal how your wishes and efforts have sprouted into exquisite beanstalks. Creativity, compassion and romance flow like wine at a vineyard under this lunar light — ahhh. Pisces energy has a fairy-tale quality to it and Monday’s full moon could bring some major fantasy fulfillment.
But, it’s a double-edged sword: wearing the rose-colored glasses can also screen out some important red flags. It’s one thing to see situations in their idealized light, but quite another to fall into the Pisces pitfall of denial. Don’t ignore reality’s harsh glare, even if it bursts a bubble or two. After all, Pisces is symbolized by two fish swimming in opposite directions: One points us towards our illuminating higher truths, the other reminds us to dive into the depths of the emotion ocean. So grab some scuba gear this week to go along with those fairy wings! Some major healing could come, and the confidence to let go of situations that just aren’t serving us.
On Saturday, go-getter Mars is on the move again, leaving Scorpio’s intense cauldron and zipping into passionate, adventurous, worldly Sagittarius until October 26. After seven weeks of subterfuge, secret agendas and scintillating seduction, we are all ready to have everything be out in the open again. Mars in Sagittarius serves up more shots than a frat house fete — but of truth serum, not cheap tequila. Honesty is indeed the best policy as long as tact and compassion don’t leave the building. Mars can be equal parts excitable and aggressive and we run the risk of bludgeoning people with our truth hammers if we don’t pause to put ourselves in their Choos. Warrior Mars could in Sagittarius either stir the pot or bring some much-needed resolution to the international and multicultural crises flaring up around the globe. Our continued focus on peace — in our own corners of the world too — can add a higher vision of love to the collective conscience. Break out the passports, fire up the webcam because Sagittarius is the globetrotting world traveler. This is a thrilling time for many to explore new corners of our gorgeous planet or work together with people in distant lands on projects and business ventures.
