Pisces Full Moon

The September 13 Full Moon happens in the water sign, Pisces. It’s also a Full Moon happening on Friday the 13th, which is the first time this has happened in 20 years. The Full Moon happening closest to the Equinox is called the Harvest Moon because this is traditionally a time of abundance when the summer crops bear fruit, and we reap the harvest. 

As you think about the Harvest Moon, think about this for your life, too. This is the last quarter of the year when we have the last chance to fulfill the goals and intentions we set in January. It’s also a time to assess what isn’t working in your life and initiate changes accordingly. 

Pisces is the sign of spiritual insights, intuition, and supernatural phenomenon. The Moon in Pisces is counterbalanced by the Sun and most personal planets in earth sign, Virgo, the sign of details, discernment, and order. This combination could mean finding a balance between the spiritual and practical. In your everyday life, you could have profound insights and realizations. Then, you will need to find ways to ground those spiritual revelations in the very practical here and now.

This is a Full Moon for self-care, too. The Moon in Pisces urges you to heal some aspect of your life, physically, spiritually, or emotionally. Emotions could surface, but they should be sensed, felt, and not suppressed. The Sun and personal planets in Virgo invite you to explore alternative modalities for some of your health concerns. 

Venus, the relationship planet, is at the last degree of Virgo, and she calls you to be careful, discriminating with your time and energy. Establish boundaries so you’re not involved in unhealthy relationships. If you’re ready for a new beginning in love, you could see an open door. However, you’re a little more cautious than usual. Be cautiously optimistic. The Virgo influence helps you break free from relationship patterns that are unsupportive, and you could see changes in your love life as a result. Friendships, too, could undergo some subtle shifts. You may be more giving, more helpful to others. Be the friend you want to have, generous and thoughtful, and you’ll attract more friends like you into your life. 

The Moon in Pisces is a creative one. Find time to make art, sing, dance, or do anything self-expressive. Creative outlets help relieve anxiety,  but they also help you access your inner voice, that of your soul. Because of this, your creative work can be a spiritual practice. 

This Full Moon involves a challenging T-Square pattern between Jupiter, Mars, and Neptune. This influence could be challenging for decision-making processes. You may not see things clearly. Balance hope with reason, faith with practicality.

This Full Moon highlights your health. Do not allow stress or anxiety to compromise your wellbeing. Take action, and focus on relaxation.

If you and your partner have been trying to conceive or adopt a child, you could make significant progress this month. Roadblocks will be illuminated for you to clear out of the path.


Anything is possible, and you want to make sure you stay in a positive mindset for this Full Moon.

Follow synchronicity, and look for signs you’re moving in the right direction. You could see those signs in your environment, hear them in conversation, or feel them intuitively. This is a spiritual time for you, when you may benefit from meditating or holding a Full Moon ritual to release anything that no longer serves you. Professionally and personally, doors are opening, but others may have to close first. Stay open-minded, and resist judging anything that happens as good or bad, right or wrong. You never know how the story will evolve.

Stay positive and manifest from that perspective. On a practical level, this is a time when your mind is sharp and focused.

If you’re planning an event, attend to the minor details, and delegate tasks if you can.


Financial matters are up for you during this Full Moon, especially regarding your sense of self-worth around money matters. Do you value yourself enough to ask for a raise? Realize, at the core of financial concerns, you often find themes of self-esteem and deservedness. If these are out of balance, you may not feel worthy of having what you want, or you could desire to give it away to those in need.

This Full Moon is in your sign, which means you may be particularly influenced by it. You could feel a mixture of emotions throughout the day, which may feel confusing at times.

Try to center yourself, grounding in the present moment, and take time to listen to your inner voice, your intuition. Because you could feel foggy or unclear, give yourself a break. Don’t feel pressured to make big life decisions, but ride the waves of any emotions that arise for you. Know this is an important time, but you can delay taking action on insights that come up for you.
