The Full Moon illuminates and activates new awareness, especially corresponding to whatever was released with the manifesting wave of New Moon energy two weeks ago. In the coming two weeks look for ways to celebrate and take inspired action, especially from whatever you have embraced or experienced since the New Moon. Be patient with challenges that emerge in the coming days, recognizing that they are also a necessary part of your expansion.

Full Moon Astrology Article: Standing for Your Own Truth

This month’s Full Moon is extraordinary and can have a positive long term effect in your life path moving forward.

The New Moon theme this month is “creative leadership.” The current Pisces Full Moon is building on that theme with the realization that true leadership honors the truth of your inner being. This truth of your being, your essence, has the strength come what may to stand uncompromisingly for your personal truth within the circumstances of your life.

What separates this type of inner truth from mere facts, opinions, or wishful thinking can be found within the Pisces archetype. Pisces is the most powerful of the water signs in the zodiac. The power of Pisces can create a momentum at the soul level that manifests as a powerful self-assertiveness. When this Pisces momentum is directed toward goals it can be as unstoppable as a tsunami.

We are each continuously making decisions. The cumulative weight of these decisions adds up over time to steer us in either of two directions: either toward or away from our destiny. At this Full Moon as you align more clearly with your inner truth, you have the opportunity make decisions and take actions that align you with your destiny.

Another significant player right now is Neptune, which is conjunct the Full Moon. Neptune is the ruler of Pisces, so there is an additional emphasis at this Moon on the spiritual blessings available. You can feel this during the Full Moon as a self-quickening or energizing effect that speaks to the truth of your being.

The ultimate power of this Full Moon lies in the realization that you are divine, a son or daughter of the universe. When you assert your own truth in the mist of the outward confusion of those around you, you experience this truth of your divinity.

Astrology Pattern

Full Moon Chart Aug 2015There are three powerful concentrations of energy in this Full Moon astrology chart. They appear as conjunctions: the Sun is conjunct Jupiter, Venus is conjunct Mars, and the Moon is conjunct Neptune.

These conjunctions occurring at the same time as a Full Moon represent one of the most powerful patterns possible. The Sun/Jupiter conjunction offers a new sense of connectedness to others without judgement and preconceived ideas of their worth. The Venus/Mars conjunction offers a surge in life momentum that supports the deeper intent of the Soul. The Moon/Neptune conjunction offers an increased sensitivity to an inner surge of self-quickening energy to reach your highest goals in life.

This pattern is powerful not only because of the depth of realization that is possible, but because of the possibility to more clearly see and release the shadow aspects of these patterns, which are also being activated.

The shadow side of the Sun/Jupiter conjunction is a kind of expanding yet detached freedom that results in emptiness from a lack of connection to others. The shadow side of the Moon/Neptune conjunction is an inability to let go of a desired outcome. As a result you can be trapped in other people’s ideas or expectations. The shadow side of the Mars/Venus conjunction appears as hesitation or procrastination, denying the internal urge for a new start toward a path of self-actualization and a new beginning.

I’m including the shadow aspects here to help you understand the power contained within our Full Moon astrology pattern. Living the fullness of your essence and staying aligned with your “personal truth” will automatically guard against any of these shadow elements.

Standing for your own truth also honors the highest good of those around you. It allows you to let go of others expectations and stand for your own truth. It activates the leadership quality of your being so you can move forward toward self-actualization as a divine being of the universe. In turn you support others to do the same.

New Moon and Venus Sparking Leo Creativity

Astrology Article: Leadership as a Creative Response

The New Moon this month is packed with creative energy capable of elevating your natural gifts into the realm of personal leadership. Creativity, leadership, and service to the greater good are related and are being activated now in an integrated way.

Leo, being a fire sign, incorporates the areas of your life where there is some sort of energy that’s capable of creating a spark. The creative spark must come from activity, from some type of interaction or friction that produces fuel for the Leo fire to burn. This is Leo’s creative process. It requires circumstances in your life to spark the flame of your self-expression.

This Lunar month success and leadership go hand in hand. The role of leadership is the most mature form of self-expression Leo can energize. Last month’s influx of energy helped to develop new levels of emotional integration. This foundation will work quite nicely to support your expansion into the energies of creative leadership that are available this month.

This month’s emphasis on leadership implies self-discipline, maturity, and the ideal of service to humanity.

True leadership isn’t only expressed through managing a team of individuals. It can be as simple as taking a prominent role in inspiring others through personal interactions.

This month, use your experiences and circumstances to trigger and fuel your creativity. Use your creativity to make the world a better place. In this way, you’ll harness the natural energies of the New Moon to inspire others through any form of leadership toward which you naturally gravitate.

Astrology Pattern

New Moon Astrology Chart for August 2015We have four planets working together to provide this new level of creativity. The Sun, Moon, Venus, and Jupiter combine their energy to create a powerhouse of personal opportunity for new leadership.

Leadership takes on many different forms, each one capable of using your natural gifts for an extra boost to something purposeful in the world. One of the keys for success this month is a mature, creative response to circumstances, capable of expressing how you are feeling and then using this response to your life experiences as creative fuel.

The energies are complex at this New Moon. The Moon is balsamic to Venus and Jupiter, yet Venus is in a new phase relationship to the Sun. What this means is that there are two complementary processes at work – one is letting go and one is incorporating something new.

First, it’s necessary to let go of your previous ideas of what leadership means, especially any fear that the word ‘leadership’ conjures in your mind. Then you can be fully present in new ways to incorporate a new creative response to your current situation. In addition, with your fresh approach you’ll be able to use what you have integrated from recent experiences in terms of character and emotional maturity.

Express how you really feel in the moment. In the coming month creative self-expression that expands into leadership is produced by real events and real circumstances that trigger a creative response.

The idea here is to let go of how you felt about something last week or last month.

Life moves forward with new creative energies. You’re not locked into a tired old response to life. Success this month will rest in a spontaneous yet mature reaction to your life, especially to any old circumstances or patterns that may appear.
