A couple of weeks ago we had the New Moon in Virgo which set the stage for the two week period growing towards this Full Moon in Pisces. You may want to go back and read that for a refresh.
Whereas the Virgo New Moon was an initiating point for analysis and choice, organization of our daily routines, and becoming more grounded in the practical necessities of our lives, now we come to a culmination point with this Full Moon in Pisces. This is a point, a climax if you will, into what we have been working towards from the ground up. Now we get in tune with a higher state of consciousness.
With Virgo being very earth oriented and grounded, the last couple of weeks were the perfect time to get our lives organized and uncluttered. It was certainly a good time to establish practical routines and processes and to become more meticulous in your daily way of life.
It was also a time where our minds were finding their balance once Mercury, the ruler of Virgo, moved into Libra. Finding a sense of security for ourselves became more important.
One of the things I want to mention that is important to note is that not everything happens overnight. Sometimes things take weeks, months, even years. If you have been tapping into the Virgo energy over the past two weeks to get an area of your life more in order, don't beat yourself up if you haven't come to a full conclusion or fruition. The Full Moon in Pisces asks you to be compassionate with yourself. Know that each journey starts with small steps, and any steps you've taken, no matter how small, to move forward and to get your life in order, is worth patting yourself on the back for. Life is a process of becoming more conscious, which includes how you treat yourself and knowing that patience is a virtue.
With this journey from the New Moon to the Full Moon our minds have shifted from the intelligent and analytical left brained mode of Virgo, towards the more creative, imaginative, right brained side in Pisces.
Getting things in order helps the fantasy and dreamy side of our lives have a more free flowing path. Feng Shui would be a very good connection between these aspects of our lives. Where we systematically place things in order, we allow the creative, vital force of energy, chi, to flow through our lives. Where the rocks are laid determines how and where the water will cascade. Structure and foundation allows us to mold which way the energy is able to go.
With this journey from the New Moon to the Full Moon we have been creating a bridge between the mind and the heart, thoughts and emotions.
Pisces is a very spiritual, compassionate, sensitive sign. As we’ve been building towards this Full Moon you’ve probably noticed various considerations come up that allow you to explore such aspects in your life. Perhaps you saw an image of someone sick, or an animal get hurt, that lead to your heart overflowing and your compassionate understanding of pain, suffering, and love as bridges to greater realizations about life. Perhaps the gates of the spiritual world have been opened by an event in your life that caused you to rethink the connection between regular, mundane life and the higher states of consciousness and spirit.
Whether you consciously created these connections between the physical world and the spiritual realms intentionally by practicing meditation, yoga, tai chi, feng shui, etc., or an event in your life brought you the connection, it is all valid.
Synchronicity gets turned up as Mercury, ruler of Virgo, brings us numbers, while Pisces, ruled by Neptune, brings us the spiritual, dreamy qualities of the awe-inspiring. Meaningful coincidences have us taking a second glance in wonder.
This Full Moon asks you to be connected to source; to look at your life and see where you’ve made progress from assessing your life to intentionally direct your life towards a more awakened state of consciousness. This is a time where you ponder over where you have come over the past couple of weeks in getting your life in order so that you are able to live in a more awakened state. How have you become more perceptive, more present and more in tune with the earth and spirit?
Autumn is on its way and this is such a perfect time to ponder the stars with your feet on the ground. Like a tree reaching deep down into the earth with your roots, while reaching high towards the heavens, this is a time of cosmic connection and reflection.
Poets, musicians, writers, dreamers, and the like can all appreciate this time by feeling the emotional, deep rooted connection to the beauty and wisdom of these moments.
Enter into that sphere, and look at how things have come together recently in your life that serves as a foundation to you being able to gratefully experience a more conscious life. Live more faithful to your higher understanding and beliefs about what is truly important for you and the world.
This is where you surrender your ego and let yourself have a breather, knowing that you’ve done a lot, you’ve been through a lot, and now you need to just experience what life is from a spiritual perspective.
On the day of the Full Moon, Venus and Neptune and Chiron each have a strong connection with the Moon as well.
It is a great time of healing. Working with your higher chakras from the heart up to the crown is a great practice now. Meditation is wonderful, as is prayer. Be a good listener. Tap into your more receptive, intuitive self and observe, without judgment, from the heart and spirit.
This Full Moon connnects positively with Saturn which is in fellow water sign Scorpio. This speaks to acknowledging the power of imagination, magical thinking and the law of attraction into our lives and how that can affect our reality. This also further emphasizes synchronicity. Psychological explorations can be the keys to learning what kind of reality we can manifest.
Visualization of mystical, dreamy concepts is wonderful. Magical thinking and the arts, particularly symbolic and surreal art, are wonderful to explore now as well. Diving into a book of symbols would be a wonderful journey of discovery now.
Now you get to integrate wisdom, healing, compassion and love from a much higher place into your life which will bring you to the next New Moon in a couple of weeks.
You can turn your creative imaginings into reality. As Pablo Picasso said, “Everything you can imagine, is real.”
