Astrology of Saturday, August 25th 2018

Daily Astro-Weather

Saturday is host to a particularly interesting and rather auspicious Full Moon. Before anything else about it is said, it must be stated that this is the first lunation since June which is not an eclipse nor conjoined a malefic. It’s been a rough string of Moons, both Full and New, and this one breaks the streak.

The Full Moon itself occurs at 3 Pisces, aligned with the royal star Fomalhut. Though many stars have qualities contrary to the sign which they overlap with, Fomalhut is not one of those. Fomalhut grants potency through magic and imagination. It is otherworldly and poetic, quite like Pisces itself. It amplifies the fecund, dreamy quality one would expect from a Pisces Moon.

This watery, connected, imaginative quality is counterpointed usefully by the simultaneous occurrence of a Grand Earth Trine between the Sun in Virgo, Saturn in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus. This alliance between planets in Earth signs offers us up a full complement of construction equipment, from bulldozers to backhoes. Its power is to change the physical arrangement of things, a perfect complement to the soulful Pisces Moon. Dare to dream a better landscape, and then with shovel in hand, labor to move both the mountains and the molehills.
