This year the Harvest Full Moon in Pisces occurs on September 10th at 2:58 AM PDT. The Sun in Virgo, and Moon in Pisces oppose each other at 17 degrees 41 minutes. This time of year is celebrated as the harvest for obvious reasons, but let’s take a deeper look at how we can celebrate the abundance our planet gives us.
First, we are looking at the culmination of hopes, wishes and DREAMS we set into motion when the New Moon in Pisces occurred March 2nd of this year. Roughly 6 months ago we looked at the balance or lack of it between these two signs, and now we see the results of our actions.
Pisces is a Mutable Water Sign. Mutable as it is the final month of the Winter Season, with qualities of the season it leads us into.
The ice is melting and breaking and the month shows signs of Spring coming. It is the last Water Sign of the Zodiac, making it very sensitive, compassionate and focused on faith. It inspires a profound outlook on life, from the inside out. This sign’s glyph is two fish swimming in different directions, showing the dual nature of the sign; either a creative and spiritually centered nature, or a need to escape from reality. Neptune rules Pisces and is feminine/passive energy. This is the planet that shows us the low road or the high road in life, and which path we choose to take.
With the Sun in Virgo, we are driven to seek order, look after our physical health, question everything looking for answers and solutions. Virgo, an Earth Sign, stays grounded in physical reality, while the Pisces Moon searches the heavens for clues to their spiritual reality. What did you set for your goal on the New Moon in Pisces? Was it to bring about changes in your world? Or to set spiritual ambitions as in learning meditation, channeling, creative writings?
The Virgo/Pisces axis relates to our material world and our spiritual world. These two signs are motivated to assist those in need. We seek balance now between these two. While the Sun encourages us to “clean up our act”, the Moon begs for our consciousness to grow and thrive.
On this Harvest Full Moon, the planet Neptune is conjoined with the Moon at 24 degrees Pisces. This is quite an event as Neptune rules Pisces, so we have a double dose of Spirit. The veil is thin between us and “All That Is”, and at this time we can truly seek guidance from the energies that usher us through our lives. Have you found your guiding light? It is a wonderful time to dive deep into meditation/contemplation on who you are and why you are here. We are not just physical beings, but are much much more.
Both the Sun and Moon are favorably aspected by Uranus at 18 degrees Taurus. With the trine to the Sun the unusual and unorthodox will appeal to you; you crave freedom, adventure, excitement and discovery, and are not afraid of change. With the sextile to the Moon rather than overly emotional, you’ll be spontaneous and may do something unexpected or funny in order to loosen others up. Change is inevitable, but with these aspects it is welcomed. Taking back your power can come through spiritual insights you gain at this time.
One difficulty can come through a T-Square between the Sun in Virgo, the Moon in Pisces, and Mars at 11 degrees Gemini. The square to the Sun inspires a direct approach, possibly leading to aggressiveness or being combative. You can feel restless, impatient and sometimes reckless. The square to the Moon makes for temperamental responses if your desires are frustrated. Since Mars deals with our physical bodies we must be cautious. The relief for this T-Square comes from Mars in Gemini. We can think ourselves out of these feelings, we can use our intellect to discover what needs addressing in order to calm the waters. Where Virgo and Pisces are looking at how to help others, Mars brings us back to how to help ourselves.
Also, with Mercury Retrograde from September 9th through October 2nd, this requires patience and a deeper look at all that has happened since the New Moon in Pisces. Remember, the Full Moon is a time of completion of what was set in motion last March. It is my hope that much has been realized, understood, and assimilated into our personalities that make us better people. Look at the results of what was set in motion and whether or not you achieved your dreams. After all, Pisces is the sign of our higher nature, our subconscious and our infinite connection with Spirit. It is truly a time to see what your dreams have brought into your life. Be all that you can be!
