Full Moon in Pisces | Sunday, August 26
3 degrees | 4:56am PST
“Between the wish and the thing the world lies waiting.” -Cormac McCarthy
As the curtains close on the climactic events of Leo Season and the Eclipse portals, grounded, practical Virgo Season arrives with a contemplative Full Moon in its opposite sign: mystical Pisces. Pisces Moons are across the board sensitive, visionary times. However when Luna is Full in Pisces, her dreaminess becomes a little more vulnerable. Suddenly she cares about seeing her dreams manifest. She has to extract herself from the ether and descend into the material because her desires have become seeds, and she needs a functional vessel in which to plant them.
This is a strange task: it gets to the heart of the human plight and the potential of human magic. How to shape the material world with our mental, psychic, and spiritual power? The shapes that appear among the stars this weekend whisper these kinds of existential questions in our ears.
While it would be nice to say that with Eclipse Season over the ride will be easy from here on out, it just wouldn’t be true. The fires we’ve been through have truly transformed our personal realities, and we’re deeper into them than we might have predicted.
Whether it feels like precisely the space you’ve always felt was your home or it feels terrifying, it is still new and unknown, and therefore makes you vulnerable. The work now is not to shield yourself against your vulnerability: it’s the time to acknowledge it, to seek connections around you, and trust in the magic of Pisces. That right now, you’re precisely where you’re meant to be, because there is indeed a plan bigger than yours. And in all reality, your personal plan is still part of that bigger play. While you may be a marionette on a stage, without your agenda included in the plot, the play is incomplete.
So this Moon is a critical time to recognize the importance of your priorities. On the ground. It’s time to take stock of what your plans have yielded and how you can restructure your daily life so that you get results more in alignment with your more “visionary” truth. Now is the time to assess what area of your daily life is anemic, and integrate whatever is missing from your schedule. Because whenever we’re downloading big Piscean visions, we still have to recognize the realistic kinds of organization and structure that help us effectively follow the path to our healing. Because healing is what Piscean vision is really all about. The path to wholeness.
While this path is sometimes treacherous and triggers the keyed up nervous system, this weekend it’s important to dedicate time to rest and to developing strategy from a calm, collected place. Take the time to listen and respond to your own emotional needs. Full Moons are, after all, times of celebration. With a Pisces Moon, what you have to celebrate is likely your tenderness.
There’s a highly advantageous Grand Earth Trine between Uranus in Taurus, Saturn in Capricorn, and Sun in Virgo, so nothing will feel better now than stopping, taking stock, and having patience with yourself as energy flows through you. Grounding yourself by taking time to meditate on the phenomena of the earth around you will open you up to connections both up toward Pisces and down toward Virgo.
We’ll want to be conscious of Venus squaring Pluto this weekend and week, which may wake up potentially explosive compulsions to buckle in the presence of rage, jealousy, the fear of abandonment/isolation or the desire to manipulate your surroundings. Be careful of resisting your new growth. This evolutionary square asks you to step up your game and become the better version of yourself. Namely, the person who acts from a place of love, first.
The sensitive Pisces/Virgo axis wakes up an opportunity to inhabit the body more consciously, and to understand that the body is the locus for spiritual transformation and healing. This is a highly creative act, unique to each individual. With this lunation, creativity will surely flourish under the pragmatic touch that respects mystery.
