|Cathy Pagano at Wisdom of Astrology speaks of integration and stillness in her latest post at this Full Moon in Pisces. Pisces represents the collective unconsciousness.
“Take this last week of August to relax and gather your energies. With the Sun’s move into Virgo, we can leave behind Leo’s drama and settle down to integrate what we’ve learned about ourselves this year. With all the chaos in the outer world, have we found our silent, still center?”

The Collective Consciousness holds all of our collective beliefs and awarenesses. We imprint it every time we do a piece of work, clearing a faulty belief pattern, emotional pattern or past life trauma. Then that resolution is available for others who have the same issue and seek healing or integration. This is how the collective consciousness expands and grows.
The collective un–consciousness holds all of our experiences, both personal and collective experiences, that have not yet become conscious. It is what we uncover when we do our personal work. “Full Moons are the best times to become aware of what’s really going on inside us. Their energy stretches us to accept opposing ideas and desires, and if we can hold the tension of opposites, we discover something new about ourselves and the world.”
Here, Cathy speaks to holding the tension of the opposites. An excellent way to do this within is through a modality called Voice Dialogue. When we become conscious of two opposites within, which are often unconscious, then we can hold the tension between them and choose how much to listen to each through an aware ego. Sometimes those parts need healing or support too; it’s all a part of integration! When this balance occurs at the ego level, we can then connect higher and more easily within the hara.
“The ruling planets of this Full Moon, Mercury/Virgo and Jupiter/Pisces, are squaring each other. So in the midst of the calm, we are challenged to speak to the heart of things…
“It’s important that we put our creative thoughts into language that engenders original thinking in ourselves and others. otherwise …trite words and phrases, come automatically to mind and carry us along with them, resulting in not really thinking at all. We just get carried away in a collective mind-dump.”
As Robert Wilkinson says:
“Be direct, stay on point, focus on the heart of the matter, and ignore the rationalizations and superficial distractions…
