This month's Full Moon falls on September 6th at 13 degrees Pisces.
Since the build up to the solar eclipse, there has been an abundance of energy. For some, this energy has been motivating. For others it has felt chaotic and randomly dispersed. It’s been a viscerally tense time and it’s all culminating to this release point, the full moon in Pisces.
September 6th marks a noticeable energetic shift. It’s a harvest point that will help us consolidate and realise that which we set into motion on the solar eclipse and the period since.
We’ve been asked by the planets continually throughout this year to vision. To vision what our happiness actually looks like, to vision what our dreams are, to vision our fear and our pain, our shadow self and our triggers, to meet with them so that we can move through all that is tying us to past cycles and outdated ways of being. This month’s full moon in pisces calls for more visioning. We are almost done consolidating our new cycles that will be in place for the next few years, and pisces full moon, in combination with virgo season is here to help us really get ready.
Pisces and Virgo are opposite energies and are helping us by work together this month. Up until now there has been a lot of energy that has likely had us feeling overwhelmed and anxious. Though virgo season started on the 23rd of August, virgo’s ruler mercury was in retrograde. This has meant lots of miscommunication and small yet constant problems and conflicts that have worn us the fuck out the past two weeks.
THE GOOD NEWS...
Mercury is just now stationing direct and coming out of its retrograde period. Communication and planning will start to involve less and less obstacles from here on out as things build back into a more stable and regular pace. Conflicts should lessen as we find we have more patience, perspective and compassion. The downside is even though Mercury is currently stationing direct, it will still take us a good week to feel that Mercury is back in it’s flow.
With virgo season right after the solar eclipse, in combination with mercury in retrograde, we have been overcome with anxious energy. Much of this energy we have internalised and held onto in our bodies and minds. When virgo energy is felt out of balance, it can cause us to feel worried and isolated. We might find we fall ill with headaches and stomach issues as this pent up energy manifests physically. The pisces full moon is here to release and realign us so that we can continue through virgo season and harness all that this month has in store for us.
TAP INTO YOUR FANTASY...
Pisces wants us to tap into fantasy and become a mermaid. We are being asked to dive into the watery depths and let ourselves be pulled by the underwater currents. Physically finding water of some kind right now will certainly help anxious excess and negativity energy dissolve from our bodies. This week swimming or bathing is highly encouraged. With pisces water can also be symbolic of consciousness and the spiritual and psychic realm. So anything you can do to dive into your consciousness, spirituality or the psychic realm right now is what is being asked. It could be meditating, it could be dreaming or astral projection, trying to open yourself for communication to guides or ancestors, or getting in touch with your inner voice and intuition.
Digging deep is going to help you get back in touch.
Neptune station retrograde conjunct the moon will aid us in our piscean venturing as it gives us the sensations similar to an altered trippy like state. Music is another great way to tap into the piscean full moon energy. We may be more psychically open to spirits, past lives, in our dreams and with each other. It’s a good time to manifest, wish or ask for guidance, but an important time to listen to our intuition.
With such openness can come confusion, distraction and deception. There are definitely those who could take advantage and be sneaky in this time. Asserting your boundaries and being clear with your intentions is paramount.
Pisces full moon during virgo season balances with a mellowing effect. It helps us taps into a more of a flowing state of being but could also have us tapping out in ways that can leave us vulnerable or unsafe. Placing yourself in spaces with people you trust when possible right now is advised, as well as if you can, carrying obsidian or smokey quartz.
There is no need to worry about going too deep or losing yourself right now. It might feel scary but pisces is an all or nothing kind of energy and it’s telling us to that in order to release what we must this full moon, we need to allow ourselves to go deep.
FOR THE SKEPTICS...
For those of you who aren’t so psychically or spiritually inclined, you could think about how the anxious and chaotic energy that has culminated has driven you into your head as you try to stay separate and ignore the feelings of discomfort or un-assuredness swirling in your gut. Now is a time to really get out of your head and into your gut. It may bring up feelings of unease or fear but being present here will help you to release.
What pisces and virgo have in common even in their opposition, is their divinity. The challenge now is to dive into the piscean lucid dream waters where reality as we are used to dissolves, knowing that when we wash up on the shore virgo energy will integrate that which we have tapped into back into our life.
TO WATCH OUT FOR...
Fixed star Achernar affects us similarly to how jupiter would in that it enhancing our charm and influence. This could be a very positive experience however Achernar also affects those who are acting from places of ego, power and manipulation. Be careful who you place on a pedestal and if you have allowed yourself to sit on a pedestal to others, prepare for things to come crashing down.
Venus Quincunx Neptune
Victim and saviour complex arising in unhealthy way. Unbalanced tensions with feelings and perceptions of how give and take plays out in an intimate relationship.
