“Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to
be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future.” — Deepak Chopra
Pisces is the mystical sign that represents union — the unending quest of humankind to merge with divine. The eternal Piscean search for union (whether conscious or not) can permeate your dreaming and waking reality. From this vantage point, the Full Moon in Pisces is highlighting the balance between self and other, offering an important reminder that our ultimate relationship is the integration or union with the divinity that exists deep within us. The veils between the Earth and spirit realms are thinner when Pisces is emphasized in the heavens, so you can expect your daily activities to feel dreamier and more surreal than usual over the next couple of days.
Astrologically, the light of a Full Moon illuminates the area of our life symbolized by the zodiac sign in which it falls. Full Moons always occur when the Moon is in opposition to the Sun. The Sun will be in Virgo during this Full Moon and will, therefore, emphasize the Pisces–Virgo themes of healing. Both these signs are sensitive to environmental pollutants and toxins. The good news is that the awareness of your sensitivities can encourage purification and ultimately the integration of body-mind-spirit. Both Pisces and Virgo are mutable signs, which are flexible and adaptable to change. Take advantage of this restorative Full Moon and create healthy new routines that allow you to connect to divine and create improved ways of living.
“Replace fear-based thinking with love-based thinking. Every time you’re making
a choice, ask yourself if it’s going to cultivate the experience of unity and
love or the experience of separation and stress.” — Deepak Chopra
Mercury is sounding a proud and powerful roar during this Full Moon lunation as it makes its dramatic rise over the eastern horizon. It is the ruling planet of Virgo and while traveling through the sign of Leo it calls us to creatively actualize heart-mindfulness: to think and speak from our heart and not our ego. Leo is also associated with children and romance, providing us with opportunities to evaluate whether we are nurturing our inner-child, and creating romantic moments of honoring and loving the self.
“Holding on to something is like holding on to your breath. You will suffocate.”
— Deepak Chopra
Pisces is the final sign of the zodiac and represents the culmination of a cycle — endings in one or more areas of life, or simply letting go of habitual patterns that no longer serve your highest wellbeing. During this paramount time on our planet, many of us are experiencing ongoing changes that require relinquishing comforts associated with old ways of being. Even the most difficult culminations will serve your highest good as they simultaneously prevent unnecessary crises and suffering that result when necessary changes are resisted. Therefore, embrace and honor the wisdom of fluidity that this Full Moon is granting and dream new and exciting visions into your future.
