ARIES

NEW MOON in VIRGO

August 23 to September 22, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 6th House of work and service—paid or volunteer—health and healing, analysis and organisation, and your contribution to the world.)

You'll likely be concentrating on health, work and service during this cycle. Much of your attention may be focused on empowerment issues—or the struggle to attain it. One possible theme is "the tyranny of health or work." In other words, efforts in these areas may feel like you are battling a tyrant who is demanding and exacting in what is required of you, although perhaps not always clear about what that is. Or, you might feel like you're getting bogged down in details and your progress in your efforts are slower than you would like.

However, "fighting the good fight" can also bring rewards of increased strength, a higher quality of achievement, and the manifestation of opportunities that would otherwise have slipped away. Your biggest challenge may be the frustration of having to spend time on details and perfecting what you're doing, instead of sprinting quickly through to your goal. But this extra effort will pay off, and by the Full Moon you will start to feel some liberation and release.

Your creativity or sense of self might feel a bit confused or weighed down for a while, which is probably your struggle with responsibility and discipline pulling against your ideals and imagination. The latter might be a bit too far out of reach to easily put them to practical use. Relationships or finances may get caught in the gravity of this dynamic. It may help to step back and see things from the bigger picture, as well as the undercurrents of feelings and desires that may be motivating the direction of your interactions or spending patterns.

ARIES

LUNAR ECLIPSE

FULL MOON in PISCES

September 7, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 12th house of spirituality, compassion, isolation, inner focus, meditation, escapism, addiction, and universal love and beauty.)

This Lunar Eclipse can be a time of spiritual breakthrough for you, Aries! "Spiritual" in the sense of feeling yourself to be a part of something greater than yourself, or stretching yourself beyond your conscious awareness or your ego-based identity. In fact, you may find that new insight, ideas and liberation could come to you in such a strange, explosive or extreme way that you're a bit overwhelmed by it all.

You can keep yourself well-grounded by attending to the little things—to details, routines, work and health. You can bring stability to these changes by not disrupting your daily routines more than you really have to. Your journey will be more sure-footed if you take small, calculated steps, although it might be tempting to take giant leaps of faith—which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but is more likely to bring erratic or unpredictable results.

You are finishing a long-term process that began about 6 months ago toward the goal of empowering yourself through new awareness. This awareness is now breaking open your mind like an egg, filling you with new possibilities. You are called upon to start applying this awareness, learning and healing; to translate it all into concrete form. In other words: walk the walk. This will require that you "step" lightly and carefully for a while, but any worthy goal requires a focused, deliberate effort that often takes more energy than you think it will. One careful step at a time.

 

 

TAURUS

NEW MOON in VIRGO

August 23 to September 22, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 5th House of identity, individuality, selfhood, children, fun, love affairs, creative self-expression and "joi de vivre.")

There is great creative potential for you in this cycle. Although your creativity wants to soar, you must also get past obstacles or inhibition, or perhaps just spend time doing the work that needs to be done. Whatever your hard work involves, it can pay off with patience and persistence. However, some of that work may also involve facing and dealing with fantasies, illusions or ideals that are a little too "out there" to easily fit into the practical structures that are available. For example, you might want to renovate your home but your vision of what you want to do with it doesn't quite fit into your budget.

Finances and relationships may get caught in the net of this struggle. It's even possible that by resolving problems that arise in close relationships, you can find creative solutions to your goal of manifesting a vision that may seem a bit out of reach. Whatever your goal, it is likely by taking care of problems first "in your own back yard" that you will clear the way to manifest something greater in your life. For example, you might want to change your career direction but must first deal with unfinished business in your current job or save up money to sustain you through the transition.

Your progress isn't likely to go in a straight line, and you may find that "the rules" have changed. Take it one step at a time and be open to learning something new from the experience.

TAURUS

LUNAR ECLIPSE

FULL MOON in PISCES

September 7, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 11th House of friends, peers, colleagues and co-workers, groups, organisations, community at large and vision of the future.)

This Lunar Eclipse brings you into contact with friends, associates, community and possibly all of humanity, Taurus. There is an urge to reach out to connect with something greater than yourself. This "something" could be a heightened spiritual awareness (in the sense of stretching beyond your usual conscious awareness and identity). Or, it might mean involvement with other people that takes you beyond your individuality, to become one of many parts that make up a greater whole.

There is work to be done now, and this requires your personal input and creativity. This might mean giving service to others in some way, or it might involve action for your own projects and purposes. Either way, it is you who must steer, direct and move that work forward, more-so than others. The greater whole (whether that is friends, community or the Universe) might well inspire your direction or shake you up to force you to make changes, but it is your personal input that will drive those changes.

It might feel a bit like your creative or financial flow is a bit uncooperative at first. This is likely due to having to attend to so many practical details that you wonder what happened to your original vision. But doing this is necessary to achieve your goals. Use this time to gather resources, organise your plan of action and renew your sense of purpose, especially about projects and new beginnings that have emerged in the last 6 months.

 

 

GEMINI

NEW MOON in VIRGO

August 23 to September 22, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 4th House of family, Father (or Mother), childhood, home base, need for nurturing, security and belonging, and the past.)

Home, family and your support system may be a focus during this cycle, or possibly dealing with the past that is affecting present circumstances. There is the potential for a new beginning in these areas, although you may not be able to bring it about with much consistency or predictability. Relationships in your family-of-origin or in your adult "chosen family" can benefit from communication and exchange of ideas now. Although this might lead to argument or disagreement, this may be necessary to clear the air or to clarify and strengthen your position.

There is a spiritual component to events in your life now, in the sense that you are challenged to discover a higher meaning within your interactions and perceptions. You may struggle between the vision you want to manifest and the reality that is both elusive and in the way. It will take time to resolve this, and the journey is likely to take you in unanticipated directions.

Your job or career could well be affected now. There are opportunities that can advance your goals, but it may not conform precisely to the vision you have in mind. It may feel like your creativity becomes a bit blocked, inhibited or delayed for a while. This reflects a challenge you will be sorting out over the next couple of months, in which you learn a new way to balance visionary ideals with practical considerations, without sabotaging your efforts in the name of perfectionism or purism.

GEMINI

LUNAR ECLIPSE

FULL MOON in PISCES

September 7, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 10th House of career, goals, ambitions, authority, public recognition, Mother (or Father), social reputation and roles in society.)

This Lunar Eclipse brings unexpected possibilities and perhaps some creative chaos in your career, goals and direction in life, Gemini. You are likely full of creative inspiration right now, with a very strong practical sense of how to make it happen.

There is plenty of opportunity to manifest this in the form of work, service and details that speak to a greater vision. But there is also some conflict and stress between these and the vision you are trying to reach for. It might feel like you are being held back, while your lofty vision slips away. Or you might feel that by honouring your responsibilities, your greater potential is being left behind.

This energy has its roots going back around 6 months ago, when you were starting to wrestle with how to bring consistency and integrity to your actions, aspirations and ideals. For the next 6 months, you are busy manifesting and integrating the organisation and structure you have brought into your life—especially in the areas of career and goals. As before, it will work best if you "clean up your own backyard" first, since a firm and organised foundation will help to stabilize what you are manifesting out in the world. And as much as it sometimes seems like you're heading in the wrong direction, your current path can bring you gifts and benefits that you couldn't get without the struggle you're in now. One step at a time.

 

 

CANCER

NEW MOON in VIRGO

August 23 to September 22, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 3rd House of intellect, communication, ideas, perceptions, learning, neighbours, commerce, short-distance travel, and information exchange.)

Your perceptions, awareness and communication are the focus of this cycle. You are learning how your perceptions about a situation can affect the conclusions you form about it and how you react as a result. On one hand your intention may be to be helpful, useful and accurate, but on the other hand there may be deeper emotional issues that get triggered and interfere with your ability to give a more rational or grounded response to the situation.

This is a time to let go of some of those interfering dynamics by converting automatic reactions into self-awareness. Your impulses can also be transformed into service-oriented action that helps both you and others. This could be more difficult than it appears, since you may have to face the deeper reasons why you have not done things this way in the past. It will help to remember that your ideas and perceptions likely have a lot of truth to them. Your challenge is to defend that truth without becoming triggered into nuking the opposition in the process.

The whole issue of this empowerment is a longer-term process of learning that is just beginning now. You may have to deal with a secret fear that you don't have much to give, which drains your confidence when you have to defend what feels like an illusion of personal substance (your gifts). However, you are on a journey of learning to acknowledge and value what you have to offer. As with anything new, this may initially come about in spurts and starts, but patience and persistence will help to see you through this time of awkward beginnings.

CANCER

LUNAR ECLIPSE

FULL MOON in PISCES

September 7, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 9th House of spirituality, beliefs, truth-seeking, justice, philosophy, knowledge, teaching/learning, publishing, long-distance travel, foreign lands and languages, and multiculturalism.)

This Lunar Eclipse brings inspiration and a little creative chaos to your spiritual direction, Cancer. "Spiritual" can mean your religious beliefs or even just a philosophy of living that supports your efforts to reach your highest potential. You may be feeling the need to liberate yourself from past beliefs, judgments or biases. Your knowledge and intuition may lead you in an unusual direction, or perhaps just breaking away from your usual routine. All of this has its roots in changes that began about 6 months ago.

However, your usual routine or ways of seeing things cannot simply be cast aside in favour of a new approach. To do so would throw away an important stabilizing factor in a situation that has a lot of change happening. Your thoughts, speech and ideas need to remain practical, adaptable and attentive to details. This will help to balance you between the microcosm and macrocosm (the little and big pictures), and there is a strong pull in both of these directions right now.

Your creative vision and understanding about who you are in the midst of such a vast context can be a pivot point around which to find balance. It may seem like you are short on resources or that your vision of "a perfect world" will never be attainable. There may be some truth in both, but by wrestling with these issues, you can find a new depth of understanding that will help you find balance between the ideal and the practical. This will develop over the next 6 months.

 

 

LEO

NEW MOON in VIRGO

August 23 to September 22, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 2nd House of finances, income, expenses, possessions, resources, self-worth, and material security and values.)

There are new beginnings possible now in the areas of finances, assets and personal worth, although it will likely require a lot of hard work to reach your goal. You might have recently been through a time of realising that you have your work cut out for you in order to reach your goals, which might have also produced some discouragement or obstacles.

Now you are likely faced with finding the resources you need to make those goals happen. This may be literally in terms of getting the money needed to make your financial base stronger. Or it could involve getting the support and connection you need from others in order to have the self-confidence to move forward. Your efforts might proceed in fits and starts initially, especially if discouragement leads to inconsistent action.

It may help to approach this as a long-term process (which it is) and not expect immediate results. As with any project of growth, it is often the obstacles that loom large in the beginning. It may be tempting to see others (like loved ones or support people) as having what you can't seem to get, or to feel disillusioned when they turn out to be human (and therefore imperfect) after all. Look to the past (even as far back as childhood) for clues about hidden assumptions, ideals or biases that might need some adjustment in order to allow you to see your situation more clearly.

LEO

LUNAR ECLIPSE

FULL MOON in PISCES

September 7, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 8th House of power, empowerment, control, intensity, deep psychology, transformation, death/rebirth, the occult, secrets and resources from other people.)

This Lunar Eclipse brings the potential to break out of an old rut and find new faith in yourself and in your ability to follow your dreams, Leo. To do that, you need to "think outside the box" – or rather, to "feel and dream" outside the box – in order find your spiritual power. By that I mean finding a higher purpose to guide your quest to empower yourself. To allow yourself to be led by a humanitarian vision of equality, and not simply a primal urge for self-protection.

This new vision of empowerment has roots that go back about 6 months, when you began a quest to find a new level of integrity, inspiration and personal standards. Now you are challenged to take what you've achieved in these areas and apply it in both practical and spiritual ways. Start by finding some self-esteem that strives for self-betterment without becoming fragmented by being too hard on yourself.

Your self-confidence and sense of potential may be both a resource and a hindrance now. On one hand, you may be haunted by memories of judgment, blame or guilt from the past, perhaps stirred up by interactions with people in your present life. On the other hand, you are now in a position to let go of some of your old emotional baggage, which can liberate you and bring healing to your self-image. This will unfold over the next 6 months.

 

 

VIRGO

NEW MOON in VIRGO

August 23 to September 22, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 1st House of self, outer personality, appearance, vitality and self-assertion.)

This is your New Moon, Virgo, since it takes place in your sign. This is a time of especially powerful new beginnings that can pull a new sense of self up from your spiritual depths. The potential for transformation is strong now, which means you will be working hard toward self-improvement on more than one level. In fact, much of this work is likely to be happening below the surface, behind the scenes or in private.

You may have to fight to keep past assumptions, beliefs or obsessions from dominating over your here-and-now experience. Those hidden assumptions may be more deeply rooted than you realise, and it may help to take some time out to check in with yourself to find out what's really going on inside you. This is especially true if you find your automatic reactions becoming a bit out of control or out of proportion to the situation.

You are reaching the manifestation stage of a long-term process that you have been building up to for many months (perhaps even years). This involves finding ways to bring your ideals, beliefs and higher motives into your day-to-day living and into your work (whatever you do with your time that contributes to the world around you, with or without pay). Your knowledge and your ability to articulate it may come under fire over the next couple of months, possibly putting some dents in your self-confidence. But the purpose of this is to challenge you to reconsider and reshape your understanding of those goals, not to discourage you from pursuing them.

VIRGO

LUNAR ECLIPSE

FULL MOON in PISCES

September 7, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 7th House of "Significant Others," relationships, partnerships, inter-connectedness with others, style of interaction, and balance.)

This Lunar Eclipse projects a lot of lunatic wisdom and magical energy into your relationships and interactions with others, Virgo. But there is also a lot of focus on you, and how to make sense of the priorities and ideals that are fluctuating between you and others. You have a lot of strength right now to analyze, organize and bring healing to your sense of Self and how you interact with others. This likely applies to your current (or past) close relationships, but it could also apply to your approach to relating in general and reassessing what you really want from relationships.

Your experience of others may be less organised, less practical and/or less rational than you would like. It might be easy to assume that this is somehow a bad reflection on you. But over the last 6 months you've been challenged to develop self-acceptance and a deeper understanding of human nature. This is a resource you can draw on now to gain a healthy sense of detachment. It will help to use your analytical and critical skills to do a compassionate reality check, which can help you make sense of the deeper dynamics without making the situation worse.

There is a risk of falling into a battle of perfectionism now, and compassion can help to balance this out. It can be tempting to compare your ideals of what "should" be possible against what you've actually managed to achieve, which might seem to pale in comparison to the shining ideal. Remember that ideals always tend to lose a lot when translated into reality; we can only do what we can do. If you feel you "should" have done better, use it to create a realistic strategy for future consideration. In the meantime, err on the side of compassion and optimism, both in your self-assessment and your view of others.

 

 

LIBRA

NEW MOON in VIRGO

August 23 to September 22, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 12th house of spirituality, compassion, solitude, privacy, alone time, inner focus, meditation, escapism, addiction, and universal love and beauty.)

There is much developing behind the scenes for you during this cycle, and as a result there may be a lot more to events and situations than meets the eye. In particular, your involvement with friends, peers, community or all of Humanity are likely to be affected. Doors that were previously open in these areas might seem to be closing now, or you might be very aware of differences that make you feel lonely or isolated.

Whether this is a temporary or permanent development, the purpose of this long-term process is to challenge you to discover a higher calling or aspiration within yourself. And this is a time of powerful new beginnings that will likely start in some secluded corner away from the busy world. Therefore, you might be more likely to initially notice a drop in social connection or disillusionment about where you thought you were heading in life. Or, you might find you are working hard to make those connections happen and being rewarded accordingly.

Trying to express what you're experiencing or feeling right now might not be easy, and you might find more success in non-verbal forms of expression. For example, dance or exercise or passion (but avoid violence, hostility or blame). Awareness of what is forming may be sporadic or appear through strange dreams. Resources (money, assets, talent or belief in yourself) may be available but be careful not to spend them unwisely, which may be tempting as a way of balancing hardship with pleasure.

LIBRA

LUNAR ECLIPSE

FULL MOON in PISCES

September 7, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 6th House of work and service, paid or volunteer, health and healing, analysis and organisation, and your contribution to the world.)

This Lunar Eclipse brings the potential for healing on many levels, Virgo. To manifest this, you may have to build a bridge of paradox between organisation and chaos – between structured service performed in the name of a higher purpose versus spontaneous "random acts of kindness." Regardless of whether you do it by formula or by impulse, in the sacred stillness of your soul or in the mundane craziness of your job, it is by acting from a sense of dedication to a higher purpose that you can gain healing for yourself.

However, there is also a risk of becoming stuck in perfectionism. If you feel that others see you as not measuring up, or if you feel your actions aren't enough, it might be easy to believe that you must amass more and more resources, skills, insight or control. This could become a vicious circle, where the more you try to perfect your efforts, the more you may come across as trying too hard and thus lose credibility – which defeats your whole purpose.

Although results are important to you, you're more likely to get the results you want if you let go and let things flow at their own pace – even though things might seem somewhat sporadic, unpredictable or difficult to get a clear handle on. There may be a lot of details that need to be attended to (which could interrupt that "flow"), but if you try to force your life to be consistent, you may only disrupt the natural rhythm – which WILL eventually stabilize and flow more smoothly. This will unfold over the next 6 months, so don't feel you have to do it all at once. One step at a time.

 

 

SCORPIO

NEW MOON in VIRGO

August 23 to September 22, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 11th House of friends, peers, colleagues, associates, co-workers, groups, organisations, community at large, and vision and hopes for the future.)

There are new beginnings forming for you now. So, it is important that you clarify your intentions about your future. As these new beginnings take form, your connection with friends, associates, peers, groups, organisations and community may be a source of both motivation and frustrating confrontation. You may be experiencing echoes from the past coming back to haunt you in ways that are difficult to put your finger on.

It is therefore time to let go of some of those past dynamics. It's time to release outworn motives (why you react in certain ways) that served a useful purpose in the past, but now are just distracting you from where you want to go. Doing so will strengthen your efforts to manifest something of your own making in your life and in the world. Start by gathering ideas that have concrete value (not just fantasies or wishes). Then use discipline and structure to budget the resources you need to make it all happen. You may feel torn between going ahead and spending your resources to invest in yourself (money, talent, knowledge, assets, etc.) versus holding back and waiting until your situation seems more stable. There is a risk of over-indulgence now, so it may be wise to do some careful research before you act.

There is a deeper purpose behind this struggle. You are developing your capacity to assess and understand the ideals you hold dear (subjective), as well as the standards by which you measure yourself (objective). Both are valid and important, but need to be brought into balance through your own wisdom, knowledge and philosophical perspective. This is a long-term process, so give yourself time to allow it all to develop.

SCORPIO

LUNAR ECLIPSE

FULL MOON in PISCES

September 7, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 5th House of identity, individuality, selfhood, children, fun, love affairs, creative self-expression and joi de vivre.)

This Lunar Eclipse brings opportunities for powerful creative expression and a shift in the relationship between yourself and "the Collective," Scorpio. On one hand, you are enjoying a burst of creative freedom, a release of spiritual healing energy and/or an abundance of spontaneous nurturing instinct. This might feel a bit overwhelming or chaotic, but there is also a lot of validation and liberation that can come from this.

On the other hand, you are also examining your relationship to others – friends, associates, allies, enemies, groups, community and humanity at large. You may be evaluating what is working for you, what needs adjustment and how to choose and engage the right people to help you get where you want to go. Looking at this from the big picture will help, but it may also be difficult to know how specifically to act from that broader perspective too. Somehow you need to find a bridge between letting go of your control over the specific results and still doing what must be done to ensure that the specifics are dealt with effectively.

This comes from the evolution of projects and aspirations that began about 6 months ago. Your job now is to begin to establish and maintain a balance between your own path and the interests of others, between personal creativity and practical application that is useful to others, and between your unconscious agendas and your conscious intention. This will evolve over the next 6 months. Start by letting your creative genius loose! Also, take inventory of the people and groups in your life and the assistance or support that each can offer you. Then develop a strategy to connect your dreams to those who can help you realise them.

 

 

SAGITTARIUS

NEW MOON in VIRGO

August 23 to September 22, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 10th House of career, goals, ambitions, authority, public recognition, Mother (or Father), social reputation and roles in society.)

There is great potential now for a new beginning and manifestation of your goals, dreams and vision. This may require that you fight for or defend what you want. This might arise through conflict with others (especially authority figures) or by battling a hidden belief in your own powerlessness. Either way, it will probably be necessary for you to muster courage and strength to push forward in the direction you want to go.

This could manifest in the areas of career or your relationship with a parent or defending your reputation. There is more here than meets the eye, however, and there may be a lot going on behind the scenes and under the surface. Your strong point now is an ability to break free of past ways of doing things and start anew. But this also brings you face to face with the hard work necessary to bring that new beginning into being, and that might look like little more than self-denial and restriction of pleasure. And there may be some truth in that – you might need to resist the urge to self-indulge for a while in order to achieve your aims.

However, there is a higher purpose involved which gives meaning to that discipline and restraint. This is a long-term process. It will probably help to take some time out on a regular basis, to give yourself some "alone time" and to recharge your batteries and remind yourself what you're doing it all for. Meditation, dream work and staying focused on the practical steps necessary to get from "here" to "there" can help to keep you on track. You'll get there in spurts and jumps, but you'll get there.

SAGITTARIUS

LUNAR ECLIPSE

FULL MOON in PISCES

September 7, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 4th House of family, Father (or Mother), childhood, home base, need for nurturing, security and belonging, and the past.)

This Lunar Eclipse brings dramatic change and a powerful shift in the source of your inspiration, Sagittarius. Whether this applies to your home life, or your relationship with a parent or family member, or your sense of spiritual Source, or all of the above – this can begin a time when old blocks, insecurities and confusion move aside to allow a fresh flow of energy.

This in turn affects your career, goals, ambitions and how you make your mark in the world. These areas are now easier to work with and get results from. Yet, you may also feel the need to increase the level of detail, perfection, effectiveness or fine-tuning. If this is not well-balanced with a sense of faith and trust that the Universe will support your efforts, you could get stuck in compulsive obsession where you believe you must micro-manage everything by yourself. Although it's possible you may need to break free of some unhealthy dependence on others, it is also important to be open to the ways that Significant Others and the Universe can and do support you.

This will gradually develop over the next 6 months, as it will take time to adapt and integrate the shift that is happening now. So don't feel you have to make it all happen right away. If you're thinking, "Shift? What shift?" it's possible that these changes are happening below your conscious awareness, and you won't see clear evidence for a few month months. The changes may be subtle and take time to detect. One step at a time.

 

 

CAPRICORN

NEW MOON in VIRGO

August 23 to September 22, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 9th House of spirituality, beliefs, truth-seeking, justice, philosophy, knowledge, teaching/learning, publishing, long-distance travel, foreign lands and languages, and multiculturalism.)

This is a time to seek a higher truth in your life. You have a chance to make a new beginning now, especially in the areas of spiritual healing, self-empowerment and financial stability. This is a long-term process and is likely to start unevenly or unpredictably. The aim of this process is to discover a truth and knowledge that incorporate a broader context to understand your life. However, you are also challenged to formulate a new definition of success to measure your progress, which is both more precise and more meaningful.

You might find yourself reacting to every little thing that challenges you, perhaps trying to simply do something—anything!—to keep yourself from feeling stuck or blocked. This may be motivated by a secret or unconscious fear of judgment or powerlessness, which may in turn be fuelled by a difficulty dealing with anything that is indistinct or unstructured. There are likely many layers here.

Your first job is to examine your values – concrete, psychological, spiritual, ethical and idealistic. Those values help to define your perceptions and standards, and therefore the results of your efforts. Concrete values are linked to higher principles, and it is these principles that will be challenged in the coming months. The purpose of this is to find ways to become more consistent and integrated between your spiritual principles, the standards by which you assess your success, and how you integrate these into your self-empowerment.

CAPRICORN

LUNAR ECLIPSE

FULL MOON in PISCES

September 7, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 3rd House of intellect, communication, ideas, perceptions, learning, neighbours, commerce, short-distance travel, and information exchange.)

This Lunar Eclipse brings new ideas, awareness, insight and inspiration, Capricorn. In fact, these may come to you in unexpected or unconventional ways, perhaps even making you feel a bit overwhelmed, dishevelled insecure or confused. But you are likely being opened up to some very new perspectives that may not fit easily into your established way of understanding or doing things. It will take some time to integrate these new ideas, which will unfold over the next 6 months.

Your reaction may be to try to dig in deeper to categorize, organise and formalize those ideas and insights. This can be very useful and effective, since it can help you integrate the complexity and multiple layers of information you're getting. However, remember that there can be a vast difference between the inspiration that gives birth to an idea versus the manifestation of that idea in practical form. This is not a personal fault to be corrected, but a natural function of the way the Universe works.

There may be a tendency to push yourself into perfectionism and to judge yourself (or others) by harsh or impossible standards. It will help to avoid getting locked into absolutes, which will inevitably stop your flow of ideas and understanding due to over-analysis. Instead, it will help to cultivate appreciation for relative truths and acceptance of the inherent mysteries in life, which can leave room for "ah-ha!" experiences to emerge.

 

 

AQUARIUS

NEW MOON in VIRGO

August 23 to September 22, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 8th House of power, empowerment, control, intensity, deep psychology, death, rebirth, transformation and sexuality.)

There is great potential for a new beginning now that reaches deep below the surface of the conscious mind. Your awareness of this may come to you in flashes of insight, or possibly in dreams or daydreams. Feedback, communication or interaction with others might also bring new awareness and ideas about changes that are now possible (or even inevitable).

You are embarking on a long-term journey to rebalance your highest personal potential with your responsibilities and commitments toward other people. You may find that when you focus on one, the other can easily disappear or become problematic. In order to balance them out, it will be necessary to redefine your depth of understanding and your breadth of vision. In manifesting your goals and dreams, you will need to establish (what may feel like) restrictive discipline that is necessary to stay on track. You will also have to risk disappointment if your dream doesn't look the same when you bring it into form.

There is likely some truth in all of these perspectives – positive and negative, freeing and restricting, inspiring and disappointing. In order to keep these opposites in balance, it will help to re-define your values (this is how you will assess your achievements) and your resources (the concrete and inspirational fuel that will keep you going). You can stack the deck in your favour by keeping your goals within the realm of what is within your control (not dependent on someone else's opinion or standards).

AQUARIUS

LUNAR ECLIPSE

FULL MOON in PISCES

September 7, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 2nd House of finances, income, expenses, possessions, resources, self-worth, and material security and values.)

This Lunar Eclipse brings new resources into your life, Aquarius – which may appear in many different shapes and forms. This could be unexpected money, or it might be a wealth of insight, or it may be an abundance of liberating trust in the Universe to support you. You may experience a breakthrough of having faith in yourself and your abilities, talents and skills. This is an outgrowth of the development you've been doing over the past 6 months in cultivating your creative communication and self-expression.

You may be feeling encouraged (or forced) to channel your resources into service to others. Or, you might have to put your gifts to work in practical, specific ways that benefit others, which you may not be entirely comfortable with. On one hand, your contribution may fit well with your dreams and goals of what you aspire to. But there are still issues to work out regarding how you relate to others – specifically, how to balance your shining ideals with the practical realities in your connection with others. Right now you may be feeling conflict between the ways that your dreams, ambitions and goals are useful versus the ways that they may be hindering your achievement of something concrete in your life.

It may help to remember that this is a long-term process that will continue to unfold over the next 6 months. There is a shift happening now in the areas of finances, resources, receptivity and spiritual blessings. It will take time to integrate this energy into your goals and understanding. One step at a time – even if those steps are not measured, consistent ones!

 

 

PISCES

NEW MOON in VIRGO

August 23 to September 22, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 7th House of love, balance, harmony, close relationships, marriage, partnership, inter-connectedness with others, style of interaction, lovers and adversaries.)

There is potential for a powerful new beginning in the area of relationships, although it will probably happen sporadically, unpredictably or awkwardly at first. This might be a new intimate relationship. Or, a rejuvenation or healing of an existing close relationship. Or, you might decide it's time to end a failing relationship and start a new life. Or, possibly you'll take a new approach to how you interact with others in general. Or, perhaps you are changing the priority that relationships take in your life. Whatever form it takes, there is hard yet rewarding work ahead.

Health or work issues may be involved in this somehow. It might be necessary to take steps to stabilize one or both in order to avoid problems that could arise out of inconsistency or imbalance. On the other hand, too much stability or predictability can be stifling and create more problems. Part of the answer lies in learning how to take a detached, philosophical view without also detaching from your common sense.

That philosophical view is important though, since it is the bridge between the ideals, fantasies and imagination that guide you and the practical details, ideas and values that may leave little room for anything that isn't results-oriented. By stretching your perspective, knowledge and sense of meaning to include more of these things, you can start to bridge the gap between practical rules and far-reaching ideals. Either one can potentially strengthen or obliterate your sense of self, depending if it's used in balance or one used to overpower the other.

PISCES

LUNAR ECLIPSE

FULL MOON in PISCES

September 7, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 1st House of self, outer personality, appearance, vitality and self-assertion.)

This is your Lunar Eclipse, Pisces, since it takes place in your sign! It brings a major shift in how you experience yourself, as well as how you project and express yourself in your interactions with others. This may emerge as a spontaneous, exuberant or uncharacteristic eruption of feelings or creativity. You may suddenly feel an outpouring of empathy, compassion and sensitivity about others (perhaps someone very close to you). Or you might decide that this is the right time to rebel against perfectionism – or even to rebel through perfectionism.

Your relationships and interactions with others may be a mixed bag of agendas. You have a lot to give right now, and you may feel the need (or the obligation) to "be there for" someone. Or you might feel some insecurity or disorientation, yourself, and need someone else to step in and help pull you back together. Just be careful you don't let yourself be manipulated or used in a way that leaves you feeling burned out, isolated or vulnerable – or that you don't unintentionally do that to someone else.

You are in the process of exploring ethics, philosophy and meaning in your life, and you are likely wrestling with difficult questions about how much to give of yourself or whether your contribution is everything that it could or "should" be. On the other hand, wrestling with this can help you keep a healthy and healing balance in your interactions with others. It will help to broaden your view of the interpersonal dynamics between yourself and others. In other words, expand your understanding so that your interests and those of others aren't mutually exclusive, but can be seen together as two sides of the same coin. This process will unfold over the next 6 months.
