This month’s Full Moon is a Harvest Moon, which is the Full Moon occurring closest to the Fall Equinox (Monday, September 23), the end of summer and the beginning of fall. It takes place in the mystical sign of Pisces on the superstitious day that we all know as Friday the 13th.
Thirteen happens to be the number of lunar cycles and twelve the number of solar months that occur annually. Solar vibrations represent creation and lunar vibrations receptivity: Each is energetically important. You can search the internet and find a plethora of positive mystical meaning surrounding Fridays — the day given to the love Goddess Venus — as well as the number 13, which many ancient cultures believed held mystical meaning. You can also find plenty of information regarding our current fear-based superstition of Friday the 13th.
In his book Becoming Supernatural, Dr. Joe Dispenza points out that “The only way we can change our lives is to change our energy — to change the electromagnetic field we are constantly broadcasting. In other words, to change our state of being, we have to change how we think and how we feel.” What do you choose to think and feel or align your precious energy with?
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 any 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 powerful restorative Full Moon and create healthy new routines that allow you to connect to divine and create improved ways of living.
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.
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
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 potent Full Moon is granting and dream new and exciting visions into your future.
Pisces Full Moon Key Words: Flexibility, Dreamtime, Intuition, Suffering, Healing or Healing Crises (of body-mind-spirit), Culmination, Union with Divine.
