Pisces Full Moon

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. 

Aquarius Full Moon - August 15, 2019

Aquarius Full Moon - August 15, 2019

The Moon in Aquarius encourages us to think way outside of the box to solve any issues that come up in our lives. Aquarius is inventive, and you might come up with new ideas or see aspects of your life from a different perspective. Aquarius is also the sign of community and friendships. You could discover ways to become more involved. 

The Sun, Venus, Mercury and Mars are all in the sign of Leo during this Full Moon. The Sun is conjunct Venus, and this influence encourages social interactions and fun! It is a creative influence, one that could inspire you. The influence of these Leo planets suggests you might decide to take a break and enjoy the day or gather a group of friends for a night out.  

Because all of these planets are in fixed signs, along with asteroid Vesta (which is in a t-square with the Sun and Moon), it’s important to keep an open mind and remain flexible, especially if difficult conversations arise. One of the best ways to do that is to lead with curiosity, rather than focusing on absolute rights and wrongs. 

Vesta’s influence suggests you could feel the pressure of your responsibilities and obligations, despite your urge to relax and have fun. Because of this, you might feel as if you need to make some sort of sacrifice, or you could feel pressured to make a compromise. Leo encourages you to follow your heart and express your desires, but do so in manner considerate to others.
