** August Full Sturgeon Moon**
This is the moment to put pen to paper. Write down your ideas and thoughts. You will be inspired by this beautiful full moon to get things done.
Most of us may have been “led” of been a “follower” in our own lives these last couple of months. Time has arrived for you to take charge and make things happen. Working towards your long term goals and planning the future.
Don’t feel intimidated by this. The very thought of committing to a “future” may feel immense pressure to “what if I make a mistake”. Just remember it is groundwork in the bigger scheme of things. Imagine having a treasure map and you have a vague idea of where to look but not entire sure of what. Isn’t that a head start to finding the future you want?
Use this energy boost and creative spark to set yourself on a new adventure in this thing called LIFE!
The Sun is in Virgo while the Moon is in Pisces. This means you will be encouraged to have order, take charge of your immediate concerns and visualise your future now.
Pisces helps us see beyond our problems and to rise above. Virgo is far more practical and makes use of all tools and abilities. Like the worker bee and ant, it gets the job done. Pisces can be selfless and sometimes run around in pointless circles trying to get things done. Balance has to be struck for efficiency and purpose.
Health concerns will take centre stage right now and there is a sense of frustration in the form of source. So if you are looking to the root of the problem then make sure you aren’t just medicating to suppress the symptoms and get professional advice. Don’t let little setbacks make you feel down but make you more determined to get answers.
Virgos and Pisces people will feel this full moon the most and will deal with some significant personal issues. Light will be thrown on to relationships and truths that you have been trying to avoid. This is all in balance with the good stuff – personal freedom and drive to push forward.
Full Moons are all about energy and life purpose alignment. We have been through the mill with the endless retrogrades and eclipses, pushed to the max and wondering where which way to turn.
In this time, the keyword has been “trust” and “hope” that the universe knows better. That things will get better and this was all meant to be. We have been dealing with old issues that have come back, forcing us to deal with it whether we liked it or not.
I should know, I had two issues crop up one where a root canal I did in 2008 fail which then led to surgery to extract the roots and then a month ago, one of my fillings fell out. I remember in 2000 when I was watching football on tv with my ex in Malaysia, when the tooth broke when bit into a pizza with dried chilli flakes. Part of the tooth fell out and the dentist patched up with loads of filling. Eight years later I bit into a slice of pizza, about 15 mins before I was being picked up for an event with Fright Nights in Gloucestershire when I bit into what I thought was a big stone. Turns out it was part of my filling. Imagine my stress and anxiety as I was about to head out to work! Luckily my husband rushed out to get some temporary filling and I managed to work without much fuss. My dentist replaced the filling with a more secure but temporary filling. There isn’t much they can do and it would be a case of letting nature take its course. I just thought it was so ironic to have pizza play such a big role in the life of one teeth! A small but significant show of the cycle of life.
So yes, we have been dealing with a lot this year and for many of us, the cogs have stayed in one place for a long time. Time moved very slowly and frustration has set in. Not to worry as the energy is moving now. It is important to remember that when things are not working out, and if you have tried everything then REST. Always try to understand what the message is being sent to you. There is always a reason for things happening the way they are. Are you being asked to change the way you do things, rest or accept help?
Things will pick up pace and you will be rushing around but bear in mind that it has to be “efficient” and not a wasted effort. Plan and analyse your moves now. This will help you in the long run. Just remember all the difficult stuff has made a stronger you!
