On Friday, September 13that 9:33 PDT and on Saturday, Sept 14that 12:33 am EDT, the Full Moon glows in the fluid and watery sign of Pisces. The sign that prefers to live in metaphors, connects with images, andcalls the land of the imagination home. Pisces knows how to blend, she knows how to flow, and she can merge into anyone or any THING. For a Pisces, it’s less about sight and more about sensing. And oh, let me tell you, not only does she sense your feelings, she feels them as if they were her own. You’ll recognize her for her compassion and her gentle spirit that knows no barriers because all of life flows together as one. Some might call her a mystic, others a poet, and still others may say she’s a dreamer. Her deepest treasure is her inner world and oh does that world seethe with life. Pisces is often without edges, and so it’s easy for her to drift… And drift… And drift until she’s completely lost inside her story. Orsometimes the world out there becomes too much for her and so she does what she does best– she escapes and finds a way to numb herself or at the very least she’ll disconnect.
So what does this mean for this Full Moon?
Keep in mind that a Full Moon is a time of completion and it is also a time of manifesting. We must consider the polarizing energy from both the Sun and the Moon. This particular Full Moon leads us into the tension between the Virgo energy that calls for details, order, routines, growth, and service while the Piscean energy, I mentioned above, is sensitive, watery, fluid, imaginative, and dreamy. In this opposition, there is tension between the spiritual and the practical; the sacred and the profane; our spiritual experiences intermingling with our every day earthly routines. Just remember that when polarization is present, it’s not about choosing one or the other, but integrating the two. In other words, maybe the Virgo energy is simply asking you to ground your spiritual experiences into the day to day so that the invisible connections can bee seen in a tangible form.
This Full Moon in Pisces has the ability to stir up your creative juices, so see if you can carve out some time to paint, play, dream, sculpt, garden, cook, dance, write, or do anything that helps your imagination come to life. If this is an area you tend to feel stuck or need some additional promptings, then I’d also like to mention that two dear friends of mine are part of a magical trio that wrote a book called Deep Creativity: Seven Ways to Spark Your Creative Spirit.They’re also launching a 7- month program at the beginning of October to help inspire the creative genius in you. If this interests you, I encourage you to check out their work and sign up. You’ll be glad you did. I know that some of us struggle to see ourselves as creative. Reminder: If you’re alive, then you’re a creative being and there are so many different ways for you to express who you are and what makes you feel alive.
With this Full Moon we also need to pay attention to a challenging T-square alignment that involves Jupiter, Mars, and Neptune. This configuration might cloud your vision while you’re faced with some decisions about your life and what you need to do next for your future. On one hand, you could feel an intense desire to expand your life and say yes to everything or maybe you believe that anything can happen right now and there’s no such thing as a limit. While that’s certainly an optimistic path, be careful of falling into any traps of disillusionment or biting off more than you can chew.Sometimes expansion can get us into trouble if we aren’t adequately prepared for the growth.As the saying goes: if it looks too good to be true, it probably is. On the other hand, be careful of any self-defeating talk that creeps and tells you that you can’t do anything right or that leaves you wondering, what’s the point to any of this? Or maybe it tells you that you might as well just quit and give up. If this voice appears, acknowledge it and tell it that you understand its fear, but this is only one perspective to your story.
Of course there’s always the possibility that maybe you have no idea what you’re doing or where you’re going or how to take the next step forward in your life. If this is the case, then use Jupiter’s ever- expansive energy to give you the faith you need to keep going.Who knows, you might just be at a crucial point in your story where everything is about to change, but you just don’t realize it yet. Keep in mind that when things feel cloudy and confusing there’s a good chance that there’s still a missing piece and so you don’t have all the information.Not knowing how it’s all going to play out requires you to trust and let go of what you think you need to know in the moment. Then you can learn to trust that whatever comes your way next is like a thread that will move you forward to the next place you “need” to be.
I’d like to add that trusting and letting go isn’t a passive process either. Surrendering requires your full presence and it’s an action that is filled with a tremendous amount of intention. This isn’t about letting go and just hoping for the best, but rather showing up inside the mess and embracing what sits before you - no matter how confusing it might feel in the moment. Hint: Let the mess and any confusion be part of your conversation and then use your “art,” imagination, and your life as a way to dive deeply into a new part of your story.
So with this full moon use your imagination and find ways to put that wild and creative spark of yours into practice. Don’t be afraid to bring intention and practicality into the mix so that your dreams and ideas can become more real. Lastly, do your best to move past the edges of what you know, see, and believe,and do your best to trust your self in learning how to listen to where you need to be, which is always: HERE.
While we all might feel pulled during this Full Moon to go within and create something new, we will all experience this lunar energy differently depending on where Pisces is located in your chart or if you have a natal planet associated with it. If you would like a more personalized reading, I’d love to set up a session with you.
