Global Hot Spot: The Virgo-Pisces Full Moon on August 30, 2023

Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley – born in London on August 30, 1797 – became famous as a young woman for writing what many consider the first science-fiction novel Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus. The book was published anonymously in London on January 1, 1818 when she was 20 years old and then under her name 3 years later in a Paris edition. The daughter of Mary Wollstonecraft and William Godwin, she was the wife of the poet Percy Shelley who died in a boating accident under his Saturn Return when almost 30 years old. Mary Shelley was born with the Sun conjunct Uranus in Virgo (along with 5 other celestial bodies in Virgo including 3 of the 4 main asteroid goddess planets) and the Moon in Sagittarius. Her Vesta in late Aquarius is conjunct the USA Moon-Pallas Athena-Quaoar triple conjunction, and Vesta along with Pluto were in a union in her 10th house of career-professional stature. In addition to Frankenstein, she wrote several other novels and there is increasing interest throughout the literary realms about the profound nature of her life philosophy, revolutionary beliefs, and scholarly achievements.

Dateline Tuesday August 29, 2023: For those of you who are now enjoying the Astrology Cosmic Kalendar App one day at a time – but who have not yet subscribed to be able to look several weeks into the future – here are the calendar entries for two very significant days (Wednesday August 30 and Thursday August 31). Because every day – beyond the current 24 hours that we define as one rotation of our celestial orb on its axis – has astro-zodiacal magic, mystery and wonder is why thousands of people around the world have been tuning into the Astrological Cosmic Kalendar for the last 42 years and since it was at the heart-center of our Welcome to Planet Earth pioneering astrology newspaper/magazine during the 1980s and 1990s.

The Virgo-Pisces Full Moon on August 30 – the second Full Moon of this month – can make an extraordinary impact in your personal life and for all of humanity. You can read more about this powerful solar-lunar polarity in one of the two future calendar entries below as well as tune into the day after August 31. Please consider the merits of subscribing to the Astrology Cosmic Kalendar to strengthen your already developing skills as a seer who can tune into the future ahead of time.

When looking over the New Moon chart calculated for Washington, D.C. (presented at the end of this feature), the far-distant, slow-moving planet Eris in Aries and the transiting fate-destiny strong Lunar Nodes are almost exactly on the Ascendant and Descendant. Planet Eris was named after the sister of Mars in mythology and Eris is considered to have powerful themes associated with strife and discord as she was the catalyst who ushered in the Trojan War. Eris was discovered on January 5, 2005, has one moon, and Eris was very prominent at the Presidential Inauguration of Donald Trump on January 20, 2017, and Eris takes 559 years to orbit the Sun. Note: More will be shared soon about Eris in a forthcoming podcast to be available in the Mark Lerner Astrology Radio AstroScope section on our website.

Important about “Dangerous Storms” in the Psychic Atmosphere: If national events develop in connection with Juno in Leo right now (for the first time in 4 years) on the USA Lunar North Node from July 4, 1776 that requires greater explanations and analysis, I will provide more information on our website. Juno has many sterling and admirable qualities and archetypes, but when it manifests in a negative manner then rage by the disempowered, terrorist acts as well as atmospheric storms can manifest. We have already witnessed and experienced a blazing record of heat and fires moving through the USA Pacific Northwest, and affecting Northwest and Northeast Canada. Over this past weekend, a number of horrific shootings took place with a hate crime triple killing at a Dollar General store in Jacksonville, FL. And right now Tropical Storm Idalia, turning into a hurricane, is about to inundate western Florida – a state that entered the Union on March 3, 1845 when the Sun was in Pisces, the last water sign of the zodiac, closely opposite Chiron in Virgo, and when there was a conjunction of Venus, Neptune, Mercury and Eris in late-Aquarius all on the USA Moon-Pallas Athena-Quaoar triple conjunction.

Future Cosmic Kalendar Entries for Wednesday August 30 and Thursday August 31 (All times are listed in PDT.)

Wednesday August 30 All Full Moons are potent and enlightening in a variety of ways. However, the universe often supplies extra sky cycles that can either add or subtract to revelations. As indicated in Tuesday’s calendar entry before this Full Moon occurs at 6:37pm today and energizing 8 degrees of Virgo and Pisces, the Moon remains in void mode in Aquarius until 6:58am when the lunar orb enters mutable-water Pisces. During the void limbo cycle Mercury parallels Mars (1:25am) and the Sun parallels Chiron (3:15am) while the Moon contra-parallels Jupiter (7:45am). The busy vibes continue as the Moon joins Saturn in Pisces (12:34pm) while Mercury in Virgo forms an oblique, 150-degree aspect to Chiron in Aries (4:57pm). With the Full Moon in effect, individual and group meditations are advised. Send out your healing thoughts, affirmations and prayers to Mother Earth and the realms of nature. Providing an inspirational capstone to today’s Full Moon is a rare, 72-degree quintile between Jupiter in Taurus and Saturn in Pisces (8:05pm). [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]

Thursday August 31 This last day of August is also part of a 48-hour time-period following any Full Moon which can motivate you to become a goodwill ambassador far and wide. The objective is to take yesterday’s high spiritual vibrations and share them with a world in great need of evolving and leaving behind simmering international animosities. Helping you live up to your higher destiny instincts are supportive, 60-degree alliances between the Moon in Pisces and Jupiter and Uranus in Taurus (7:26am and 7:21pm) and the Moon in polarity to Mercury in Virgo (12:30pm). Investment planning, soul-sister ties and safety-security matters receive a thumbs-up signal as the Sun in Virgo forms an inspirational, 72-degree quintile aspect with Vesta in Gemini (2:51pm). Get set for Venus slowing down to go direct in Leo on September 3 while Jupiter slows down in Taurus to make a retrograde station in Taurus on September 4. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]
