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.
It represents the stress between the need to accomplish physical work and the psychological necessity to restore your creative spirit in order to keep on going.
Self and service
It also depicts the disparity between practical attainment and intuitive dreaminess -- which, unfortunately, gets put down a lot for being "impractical."
That quiet time of reflection and solitude, when the inner mind is at work, nourishing things that aren't yet ready to come out in public, is an essential part of creativity's cycle, though, just as pregnancy is an essential step between conception -- and the production of a living, independent, separate being.
Without that, conception itself is useless. Nothing results.
Care for others ... and care for yourself
Let this truth be part of your awareness for the next few weeks. Realize that each element of this equation is crucial to the realization of the other. Incubation is necessary for production. Construction is necessary to realization -- making something tangible and useful from a wonderful inspiration.
See this process and your management of these ingredients at work in your own life. Then either pat yourself on the back, or make the adjustments you see that would help it operate more smoothly for you. Reflection and action: they are both indispensable. Just like that.
