Full Moon in Pisces
September 13-14, 2019
By Linda Sprague
Summary: Nothing is stable and we feel the lack of steadiness. Lack of stability seems to grow bigger everyday. Grave Karma.
Do not be dismayed by the brokenness
Of the world
All things break And
All things can be mended
Not with time as they say
But with intention
So go. Love intentionally,
The broken world waits in darkness
For the light that is you.
L R Knost
Depending on where you live, the full moon will be exact either late Friday night on the 13th or just after midnight on the 14th. Here are a few interesting things to contemplate about this Harvest Moon just prior to the Autumnal Equinox on September 23.
The Full Moon in Pisces is sitting with Neptune in Pisces. When the Moon and Neptune are united in a birth chart, there is the suggestion that the person has sensitive, empathic, intuitive, psychic, spiritual, abilities. In ancient times, this would be the signature of the seer, and the interpreter of omens. The period between Thursday the 12th through Sunday the 15th gives us an open door to other dimensions, frequencies and realms of existence. It’s terrific for meditation, spiritual studies, artistic work, sound healing, significant dreams, psychic investigations and musical inspiration. This is a beautiful period. Or we can just go crazy! Maybe we bump into a bad core issue and can’t get out of the room. Maybe we get paranoid or crazy for a few hours. Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac, the room that holds everything in all its beauty, horror, complexity and confusion. All signs have complexity. With this full moon, planets in Virgo (Sun, Mars, Venus, Mercury) keep us mentally grounded, for the most part. Call on your Virgo analytical skills to help with balance.
Another interesting thing about the full moon in Pisces is how it makes a direct confrontation with Mars in Virgo. This makes us sensitive and maybe anger. It might be hard to be objective during this full moon time—again remember you have the ability to analyze situations. The moon also opposes or confronts Venus in Virgo. Loving kindness from family and friends can soften whatever troubles we stumble into right now.
The next thing to understand about this full moon is this; everything is exaggerated! Jupiter sits in a T-cross, a stressful aspect, with the full moon, the Sun, Mars and Neptune. Ego is big, emotions are big, anger is big, Neptune (our personal illusion-our self undoing!) is big. This energy has been going on for a few weeks and continues through the second week of October. We promise more than we can deliver. Others do the same. It’s a time to be careful when you making big purchases. Read the fine print. Check out all legalities before closing the deal. Be careful about falling for a sales pitch. People want to do more than might be possible. I don’t know about you, but I am frustrated that my Jupiter goals are not all attainable in one day! That’s the exaggeration. There is a big gift in this full moon period with Jupiter in a strong T-cross: this is a time when we truly can get some clarity about our goals. We can get in touch with our specialness and feel strongly motivated to accomplish our mission! This is good. Don’t be afraid to allow your soul, your ego, and your mind to expand and exaggerate your abilities. From that inner vision some fabulous reality will unfold. This is big kick-off energy to be who you are.
Then there is the collective, the matters of the world. What does this full moon reveal about the big picture? As I mentioned above, a lot of our social structures and collective beliefs feel unstable and critical. And, of course a lot of things seem very grim. It’s hard to make lemonade out of the elimination of clean water regulations, for example. There is zero lemonade to be had when the Amazon rain forest is burning.
The South Node of the Moon is sitting tightly with Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. I’m calling this aspect, grave karma. It is collective karma. We are all involved. We are all responsible. We need to contemplate what we can do to help resolve this massive karma that is affecting humanity, all sentient beings and our planet. It takes more than blaming others, although that is so tempting.
The nodal axis takes eighteen years to make its way around the zodiac. This same nodal energy was present for September 11, 2001. The current transit of the nodes in Cancer and Capricorn is an invitation to have a new vision for resolving problems on our planet. It won’t happen overnight, but new energy and beliefs can be put in place using vision, intention, action and faith and common sense! It is amazing how far we have drifted from simple, common sense. The job does feel big and overwhelming. Everyone’s job is different. The alternative is to fall into hopelessness and despair, to neglect our own healing, or to refuse to transform from the inside out. Read Knost’s poem one more time: The broken world waits in darkness/for the light that is you.
