full moon in pisces

Ushering us into the transitional season of autumn is the sign of Virgo. Known for her organizational skills, analytical mind, and deeply healing abilities. Virgo is ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication, and co-ruled by the asteroid, Chiron, the wounded healer. Then in comes the Full Moon in Pisces, the polar opposite of the symbol of the virgin and maiden. From this dutiful need to be in service to others, comes in the spiritual and psychic energies of Pisces.

On Monday, 20 September 2021, we will experience a Full Moon in Pisces. As we continue to move through the final days of the sun season, Virgo, we can hone in this energy to implement structure where it is needed. Every flowy feminine needs a strong masculine structure to be held in. The balancing act of the two polarities is what the Full Moon represents. The need to flow with what is and the need to create a plan, a strong intention to where the flow desires to go.

This is probably what I most love about astrology - that it shows that polarity exists in everything. Two sides to every coin. That with every energy, it can be used for its highest potential, yet again for its lowest. This Full Moon, you are being called to become clear: How are you using your energy? Does it feel free to flow or does it feel constricted, blocked, frustrated? If so, why?

Are you nitpicking at details and getting distracted from the bigger picture? Are you procrastinating to take action out of fear of your desires never being truly reachable? How can you create better structures for yourself in order to allow your creative flow and desires to unfold naturally?

This combination of Pisces and Virgo channels through us a deeper sense of trust, if we allow it.

low and high vibrations of Pisces and Virgo

With every high, there is a low and with Pisces we see the world through a dreamy lense. We feel compassion for the world around us. Unity is not a foreign concept, but a very well known way of moving through the world.

Although the sense of unity can be a positive thing. If we over identify with the whole, we can also lose our personal identity and direction. We can feel the need to numb our pain through escaping reality to not carry the burden of everything we feel.

As for Virgo, her nervousness can cause motivation to receive clarity of mind through her decluttering processes of deciphering between what is necessary and not. Discernment is one of her strengths. Setting priorities, making a plan, and following through is what gives her grounding. Yet on the flipside, it can also overwhelm her when a bit more flow is required for a plan that has received a reroute. Her excess need for details can make her picky and even intolerant at times.

The Full Moon invites us to take a closer look at how we are personally embodying the low and high vibrations of each astrological sign. Where can we be more discerning with our time and energy? And where can we connect ourselves to something higher than ourselves and surrender to the trust in life?

All of the above questions, I invite you to explore in your journaling practice on the Full Moon. Become aware of what you are ready to release and fully integrate, because the Full Moon is not only here to usher out what we no longer desire. However, it invites us to integrate the unloved and undesirable and acknowledge the lesson that it holds. It shows us where we can become more ourselves or unbecome the versions of ourselves we took on due to the environment around us.

This is the beauty of the combination of both celestial beings, the sun and the moon, while they stand still for a moment in polar-opposite signs. It cracks our consciousness open for breakthroughs to happen. More on the Full Moon energetics in this article - how to stay grounded on the Full Moon.
