Pisces Full Moon Eclipse – Friday 16th September
A Pisces full moon illuminates the conflict between serving our individual needs, and serving the collective. The Virgo new moon inspired us to take action to birth our dreams in the physical, especially as it’s harvest time. Now the Piscean full moon asks us how we can use these dreams to serve the collective.
Because its right in the middle of a Mercury Retrograde this moon can help us to integrate the path we have walked to get to where we are, but for some this may be a painful experience, especially if you don’t like where you have ended up.
Here are my top 7 top tips to successfully surf this Full Moon wave…
This is the time to begin reaping the rewards for all the time, effort, energy and commitment you have put into creative endeavours and projects. Those that are committed and aligned to who you are and walking your truth will find this moon one of celebration for what you have achieved and the change you are creating. The steadfast belief in your journey is coming to fruition and, just like nature it is time to enjoy the harvest.
We are at our most sensitive and vulnerable during this moon so emotions can run high, especially if you are in a negative mindset and feeling depressed already. If you start feeling misunderstood, lost, disappointed, the cure is to hang out with like-minded people that share your dreams and visions. Likewise, if you are needing some deeper connection, join a meditation class or spiritual group. Use the proactive Virgo moon to get you out of the slump and doing something practical and stimulating about it.
Trust in Nature
It may feel that things are not moving forward as fast as you would like, but things are often not as they seem, and sometimes we must take a leaf out of nature’s book. The farmer must wait patiently and trust that the right conditions will occur to reap the harvest. Relinquishing control and trusting that everything is happening in perfect timing will make life less stressful, and this moon, a much more enjoyable experience.
A Pisces full moon illuminates the struggle symbolised by the two fishes swimming in opposite directions, as if we have to choose either ‘Me’ or ‘We’. The key is to recognise that when they eat each others tails, they are completing the circle. When we know there is no separation the struggle ends, and life becomes one of effortless flow. This full moon inspires us to listen to our intuition/heart/inner voice, so our actions serve Mother Earth, and all living things.
Beware Falling into Addictions
Under a Pisces moon it’s harder to separate ourselves emotionally from what is going on around us, both on the micro and macro levels. While this enables us to feel compassion and ‘walk a mile in another’s moccasins’, the urge to escape reality is at its strongest.
When the inner voice becomes a yell, it is often easier to use addictions to escape the messages. A cloud of smoke, a pill, the bottom of a glass, or a belly full of junk food, will only bring short-term relief and won’t change the situation. This is the time to face and accept reality as it is, and why you are creating it with your choices.
Making More Conscious Choices
This moon illuminates reality and the choices we have made. If you don’t like where you are this Piscean moon offers us new choices: Am I a victim, controlled and manipulated by others – or – Am I part of the creative forces that shape life and therefore take personal responsibility for everything, and know I also have the power to change it by my decisions. When we choose the latter we start creating the life we desire.
From Me to We
Our love and compassion can increase over this full moon, as it illuminates our deepest desires to serve others and the Earth, to make this world a better place to live. This is the moon that encourages us to shift our consciousness from ‘Me’ to ‘We’.
I will end this Lunascope with the wise words from Confucius:
“To put the world right in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must first put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must first cultivate our personal life; we must first set our hearts right.”
