Illumination of the heart.
Full Moon in Pisces, 6th September at 13 degrees.
This Full Moon in Pisces is a wonderful time to heal and restore the balance between mind, body and spirit. The past six weeks have been at times tumultuous and tense, as well as fast and exhilarating, as we have had two Eclipses in Leo as well as Mars in the sign of Leo, moving at a dynamic and fast pace.
Some may have seen endings as well as new beginnings during this time. We can tap into the healing energy of this Pisces Moon opposite the sun in Virgo and replenish, heal and nourish mind body and spirit now.
The Full Moon in Pisces conjoined to Neptune, is an oasis, a place to reconnect within and find our inner peace. Take time out, to reconnect within and since Neptune rules the Ocean, if possible be close to the element of water.
“Paradise isn’t a place, it is a state of consciousness”-Sri Chinmoy
The Full Moon in the water sign of Pisces, is conjoined together with Neptune, the ruler of Pisces, making the effects of this Full Moon incredibly potent. We may be feeling extra sensitive and emotional now, the Pisces-Neptune influence gives us a strong connection to our intuition and Mercury in Leo, now at the Solar Eclipse degree in Leo, can give us some sudden realizations and real breakthroughs.
We are still within the eclipse window and strongly under the influence of the last Solar Eclipse .
We are still being stretched and pushed out of our comfort zones to grow and expand, positively supported by Jupiter and the grand fire trine until October.
The Pisces Full Moon, emphasises the Solar Eclipse themes in Leo, of living from the heart, to be brave and lion hearted with compassion, defending the weak, courageous, and dignified, leaving behind any lower based Leo tendencies of ego, arrogance, and narcissism.
Like a mirror reflecting back to us personally and collectively, we can clearly see, where ego and greed have taken the place of love and compassion. This stark contrast is a gift, because now we have the opportunity to change or eliminate it from our lives on a personal and collective level.
Because in the end, our true wealth is what we have in our hearts, while everything else can be taken away.
Mercury, now direct since Yesterday, after a three week retrograde period, is exactly at the Eclipse degree, triggering the effects of the Eclipse. Also conjoined to Mars in Leo, many of us are also being triggered and having our buttons pushed, as the urge to speak our truth directly from the heart,(Mercury) urgently and perhaps with anger (Mars) is further enhanced, as we can feel over sensitive due to the Full Moon in Pisces. The Mercury retrograde period, has also contributed to miscommunication and misunderstanding.
It’s important therefore to now speak from the heart and clear the air, to get to the heart of a matter, heart to heart. Don’t hold it in, as it will become toxic and harm our health and our relationships by avoiding conflict. We need to be true to ourselves. Ultimately it will improve our relationships making us more authentic and loving, by staying true to our hearts.
Although we may be feeling hyper sensitive, with our buttons easily pushed, the Pisces Moon also helps us to forgive quickly and find common ground based on true love and compassion.
With Mercury on the eclipse degree and Neptune conjunct the Moon we may have sudden potentially life changing realizations as we will have an intuitive awareness of our subconscious mind. Our intuition, creativity, fantasy, dreams and spiritually are enhanced.
Giving us a rare opportunity to get in touch with and listen to the inner voice of our intuition, our inner knowing, and wisdom, our inner compass. This can feel magical and mystical, our intuition is exceptionally high, and we have the ability to access our higher consciousness and cosmic wisdom.
It´s time to listen to the language of our heart.
“The heart has its own language. The heart knows a hundred thousand ways to speak.”― Jalaluddin Rumi
Dreams and intuition are flowing strongly through Neptune.
Listen now, to your inner voice and intuition as Mercury conjoined to the North Node of Fate , exerts a strong magnetic pull to your higher calling and purpose.
The power of envisioning, believing and creating opens the gateway to let miracles in.
The Full Moon and Mercury also highlights the need to face and leave behind any delusions of self and others. As well as the need to have a discerning analytical mind when it comes to discerning fact from fiction and our tendency to succumb to manipulation, propaganda and fake news in the Media.
The Full Moon, marks both an ending to our delusions and an awakening to our real possibilities. We now have the power to turn our dreams into reality. Neptune is infusing our consciousness with inspiration, spiritual creativity and has the power to make miracles happen.
“Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.”
Neptune dissolves boundaries in order to merge and become One with all, helping us to let go of the delusion of separation and fear based, false Ego.
This is the place where we find true peace and happiness. Neptune, the ruler of Pisces, is in her own sign and invites us to let its energy wash over us helping us to gain insights and heightened awareness, enabling a huge shift in consciousness and to truly open our hearts.
“What happens when people open their hearts?”
“They get better.”
― Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood
The challenge of Neptune is to not allow your yearning for the ideal to detract you from the experience of what is really happening in the moment. Be sure you see the reality of the way things are in the situation, and then work on a practical level to create the ideal you seek.
Neptune helps us to see the bigger picture.To let go of what we can’t control and trust that the Universe ultimately has a bigger plan for our highest good even if it doesn’t seem immediately apparent.
This Full Moon highlights the need in our personal lives as well as globally and politically, to base our decisions and actions on compassion for the good of the whole. And not fall prey to deception, fear, delusion, and manipulation.
Where there is pain, suffering, hatred, and fear, the root cause is a lack of love and compassion of self and others.
Neptune’s message , is one of of Love and Unity instead of Hate and division.
The Goal of Neptune is enlightenment and compassion – the opening of your heart to the experience of ongoing, uninterrupted pleasure and bliss through recognizing that “ALL of this is me”. The on-going recognition of Oneness with all.
Neptune’s energies flow like water, fog or an ethereal cloud. The nature of this astrological influence is mystical, spiritual, magical, sensitive, idealistic, compassionate, visionary, psychic, creative, ethereal, dreamlike and romantic. Neptune awakens the part of us that yearns for our spiritual home. We all have that inner connection to Spirit within us. When something happens in our life to open our hearts and fill us with love and compassion for others, as well as ourselves, we are dipping into the waters of Neptune at the highest level.
The Moon and Neptune in Pisces represents our dreams, creativity, and spirituality, the Sun in Virgo in opposition has an eye for perfection and practicability, together they play the alchemist by manifesting our dreams into reality.
Together with the analytical gifts of Virgo and Pisces ability to see the big picture, this Full Moon in Pisces can turn chaos into order and clarity.
We may become aware now of Neptune themes, of how we need to set more healthy boundaries, especially against forceful narcissistic personalities, as well as how we may have kept ourselves in delusion in certain areas in our lives. Neptune rules our Conscience and empathy, but when not Consciously acknowledged can take forms of Neptune’s negative side of depression, denial, unhealthy escapism, addiction and a constant unrequited yearning and dissatisfaction with what one already has.
With the creative inspiration of Pisces and the perfectionist, practical ability of Virgo, we can reach new heights now,
“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world”. -Harriet Tubman
And ultimately we are being guided towards a higher conscious state, higher forms of love and happiness in our lives.
It’s time to stop playing small and having critical self-doubts. It’s time to heal and love.
To let love expand into our hearts, minds and into our lives.
“May we all wake-up. May we all become enlightened. May Mother Earth come back into balance. May we all heal physically, emotionally, spiritually and on a planetary level.
May Love become our religion.”
