WE LIVE UNDER THE SUN & DREAM UNDER THE MOON
The dreamy Pisces Full Moon pairs up with a Virgo Sun which is a recipe of success in making big dreams come true. While the Pisces Moon brings us divine inspiration, the Virgo sun gives the fuel and practicality needed to set these ideas into motion.
The cosmos are rather gentle this week, compared to the sh*t storm we experienced in August. We are given a chance to wind down and reflect on the things which should be pulled out and given life. This isn’t a time for action – even though Mercury goes direct just the day before, we do have a Sun-Neptune opposition which takes us further into our head… or dreams, rather. This is a time of deep reflection of the plans or goals that do need our action. We are gifted this gentle Full Moon to give to ourselves, what we constantly give to others - our energy, & our compassion.
Not only is this an extremely artistic moon, but it is also empathetic and compassionate one, and backed with the Virgo Sun which is focused on service and helping others, makes the need to be needed even, even more... needier. The ability to tune in and read people, or hidden energies, is amplified. This is good, as well as could possibly be bad. While we can truly help someone in need, we risk absorbing too much and actually taking on their sorrow and stress. Pisces is a sign that needs space to spend time alone, as is Virgo, and that is because they both have a challenging time with setting boundaries when it comes to saving others. They take on too much and do not set limits to what they will give, and sometimes the people who take from them, don’t either. This is a cause for fatigue and feeling emotionally or mentally imbalanced.
This Full Moon wants us to know that we can only give to others, what we give to ourselves. You cannot feed the hungry, if you are also hungry & without any food. Take time for you to replenish your vital force.
Another added bonus to this Moon energy is the opposition with Sagittarius who is within Neptune’s visionary and idealistic presence, and Pisces also rules Neptune. This opposing force adds onto the creative and very psychic energy. We can thank the Sun in Virgo for giving us a sense of grounding, otherwise we would all be floating off the face of their earth within our daydreams.
Here are some tips to help you make the most of this Full Moon:
Spend Time Alone to Meditate & Ponder
Decompress and seclude yourself from any interaction. This is a prime time to be alone with your thoughts. Pisces is all about having that *bubble time*. This is a great moon for diving deep into your mind and pulling out those long-term goals or big dreams that you have been wishing to accomplish *one day*. Keep a notepad near you and spend time alone so you can be with your thoughts, uninterrupted. Meditation is often hard for some people to do because they can’t seem to get their mind clear enough for it. Focus on your breathing, or lie crystals on you and focus on their vibrations. This will help you become present.
Take a Spiritual Bath
Pisces is a water sign and its symbol is the fish. Naturally, Pisceans are drawn to big bodies of water, and of course we all know how the Moon has such a strong effect on water as its gravitational pull makes waves. Spiritual baths are one of the best ways to cleanse and charge your physical and spiritual body. You can use Epsom or Himalayan salt with essential oils, crystals, candles, etc. Turn the lights down low and listen to some meditation music, or take your notepad with you and write out your dreams. Baths can be relaxing, as well as inspiring – as you release all the energetic gunk, you open space for the divine.
This Moon is ideal for artists. You will most likely feel more creative, or even a need to express your deepest emotions. This won’t be done with mere speech alone – but with art. Dig deep inside and channel your inner-feelings through a creative outlet. Draw, color, paint, write, sing… whatever artistic passion you have, immerse yourself into it.
