“If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there’d be a shortage of fishing poles.” Doug Larson, 1924 Olympic Gold Medal Winner in middle-distance running.

We have a Full Moon today at 11:38 a.m. ET.  Whenever the Moon is full, we are at a culmination point and tend to have heightened awareness, if not more emotional intensity. Some things that may have not been clearly understood earlier, may now be made obvious.

The full Moon is also occurring in the practical, analytical sign of Virgo the Virgin.  As a result of this placement, we may be inclined to have, what I like to call, more of a “purification mind-set.” We may feel the urge to become personally more organized. We may want to tidy up our surroundings, reduce clutter.

The Virgo energy is always excellent for discerning what is out of place. It also has a special knack, if not an obsession, for putting things back in proper order.

Since Virgo also rules health and nutrition, we may feel more of a need to take care of our bodies and pay attention to our health. Today, for example, would be a great day to read up on nutrition and health.

Besides the Full Moon, we also have another key event taking place in the heavens today. The Illuminating Sun is meeting up with Big Lord Jupiter by conjunction in the sign of Pisces the Fish. The Sun and Jupiter get together annually this way. However, they only team up together in Pisces every twelve years or so.

Jupiter and the Sun are the largest two planets in our solar system, so when the two of them combine forces, the affect of their merger, can be pretty sizable and signficant, both symbolically and literally.

The intrinsic nature of Jupiter, by itself, is very expansive. Whenever its ray is involved in our lives, it tends to produce an abundance.  In astrology, Jupiter is also the planet associated with luck, optimism and prosperity. Sometimes, accordingly, we are luckier and experience more good fortune when Jupiter is around.

We sometimes also just feel luckier with Jupiter and more self-confident.  That self-confidence can spur us on to taking action to propel ourselves forward.  Since many of us naturally harbor so much inner self-doubt about our abilities, a little bit of Jupiter can be a breath of fresh air.

Sometimes, though, too much of a good thing can end up boomeranging on us.  With Jupiter, we may begin to believe our horizons and talents are unlimited, so we bite off more than we can chew. Therefore, we need to make sure now that we don’t get too carried away with our grand plans and ideas. Hopefully, too, the common-sense Virgo Moon can help us out here in keeping us grounded.

In astrology, all the signs and planets symbolize different areas, occupations, etc.  Jupiter rules, among other things, writers and the publishing industry, churches and religious clergy, teachers and universities, lawyers and the legal profession.

Pisces, meanwhile, represents many different things, including the downtrodden or misunderstood members of our society, who are maybe low on their luck or resources, and or who are perhaps ill and confined.  It also rules creative endeavors, and governs our imagination, including any imaginary characters that may spring from it, including cartoon characters. Lastly, Pisces also governs water and the sea and all those wonderful creatures who inhabit water.

Keeping all this in mind, here’s a little something that I wanted to leave you with this Sunday.  A few things that have happened before in history when the Sun and Jupiter have been together in Pisces:

March 2, 1939: Pope Pius the XII succeeded Pope Pius XI as the 260th Pope.

March 12, 1951: Hank Ketcham’s best-selling comic strip “Dennis the Menace” appeared in newspapers across the U.S. for the first time.

March 18, 1963: Gideon vs. Wainright – The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the poor must have lawyers.

Since Jupiter is also known for his good-nature and sense of humor, he also had to throw in this last one for us:

March 3, 1939: Students at Harvard University demonstrated the new tradition of swallowing goldfish to reporters.
