Opposing the Sun in Pisces
The Full Moon formed mid-morning Sunday,
the Virgo Moon opposing The Sun in Pisces at 22° 13'.
The Full Moon in Virgo opposing the Sun in Pisces brings onstage the dilemma between service and solitude, the conflict between the desire to help through the work you offer ... and the need to heal yourself by getting enough leisure and sleep (!!), giving yourself some down-time, and enjoying some peace and quiet by yourself for a while.

The Sun -- Ruler of Leo -- Symbol of Your Essential Self ---> The Sun, without which life on Earth could not exist as we know it, is the astrological metaphor which symbolizes an individual's basic personality, the underlying canvas upon which all the other colors and elements of his character are co-mingled and combined.

Planets that aspect your Sun shape your sense of who you are -- your self identity.
Major Aspects of the Moon ---> The Moon in its travels -- The Moon, in its travels around the earth, cycles through all twelve signs of the Zodiac every twenty-eight to thirty days.

The Moon in General -- Your Inner Self of Feelings, Emotions and Intuition ---> Welcome to your inner world -- In Astrology, The Moon represents our inner feelings, our emotions ... and our deep security needs.

Shadows in the Moonlight -- The Full Moon and its Testy Temper ---> The Sun Opposing The Moon -- Who you are now vs. who you used to be The aspect of the Sun opposing the Moon is the classic celestial show the rest of the world calls The Full Moo. In Astrology, The Full Moon highlights tension between two conflicting desires, ambitions, requirements, or sets of values -- each a necessary part of life, and each somehow a problem for the other.
Fractiousness and Fracture Lines: The Full Moon -- The crisis is predictable. It happens every month. ---> One of life's great divides -- All Full Moons involve some kind of conflict. Usually, as the Full Moon forms ... and for several nights following, you feel pulled in two directions at once, required to try and serve two masters ... no matter how impossible you know that is -- logically. Life's demands in two opposing / competing areas become equally insistent and intense.
The Full Moon in Pisces Opposing the Sun in Virgo -- Balancing Self-Care and Service ---> Work and rest -- The Full Moon in Pisces opposing the Sun in Virgo brings to center stage the tension between your work life and your need to be of service to others -- and your need for time to yourself, time spent in seclusion with your own thoughts and in the repair of your inner self.

The New Moon in Virgo -- Virgo Energy in the Creative Process ---> The party's over. -- As the New Moon arrives in Virgo, we end the dramatic, self-promoting emphasis of Leo for another year.

The next order of business is to find work, establish an occupation and generally make ourselves useful.
Born with the Sun in Virgo -- The Virgo Character ---> Virgo's symbol is the young woman ... the virgin. -- Virgos devote themselves to work. -- I will try to keep this brief. I know how Virgos like efficiency. Work and service are their passions. They'll find it -- or at least what they define as it -- even if they have to make it up. A Virgo in his heart of hearts wants to be useful. Virgos can be the most selfless, dedicated, indefatigable workers in the world.
Born with The Sun in Pisces -- The Pisces Character ---> The saintly souls of the Zodiac -- Pisces souls are extraordinary people, often unappreciated and misunderstood for the crucial contribution they make to the reality where we all reside.
