Full Moon in Pisces on 14th September 2019


The Moon in Astrology

The Moon represents our internal world of emotions, feelings, inner security, deepest personal needs, the unconscious and intuition.   Our feelings of inner safety come from what is familiar to us. This represents subconscious patterns previously developed which have become instinctual relating to our past. 

The Moon is also associated with our mother or our most nurturing parent, our inner mother, our inner child (Moon’s energy is strongest in childhood), home, ancestors or the past and family. It is receptive, responsive and reflective while protective, reacting instinctively and spontaneously.

When we look at our natal chart, the placement of our moon will disclose how we see ourselves, our emotional tendencies and what archetypal patterns are operating under the surface.  It also tells us how we protect ourselves and how we make ourselves feel safe and comfortable always ensuring feelings of safety.

The Moon rules the sensitive sign of Cancer and the 4th House which is one of the cardinal signs that moves us from past to future on a moment to moment basis. This is due to the Nodes of the Moon; the South Node (past what is familiar) and North Node (future where new experiences await). Depending on where your Moon’s Node positions are in your natal chart, your Moon position will tell you how you transition between the two or from past to future. 

In your natal chart (the time of your birth) the Moons location tells you your emotional tendencies while the Moon’s current location as it moves across sky impacts on our feelings and behaviour in the present. She speaks to us through our feelings and emotions.

The Moon is Reflective. 

Our feelings of security are created through consistent and familiar behaviour, reflecting back to us a constant reality. Because of these feelings of  familiarity, it produces a sense of belonging that nurtures and protects us in turn giving us inner security. 

The Moon in our natal chart will tell you how you see yourself and how you nurture yourself emotionally. As we go through life we are continually in a process of evolution and it is through our emotional body we grow and mature, not through our intellect. It is no wonder that the Moon’s natural home is in Cancer, 4th House where we seek our inner security with the opposite of Capricorn being where we seek outer security and maturity.

Dysfunctional Side of The Moon

Because the Moon symbolizes our feelings it’s important to address the shadow or dysfunctional side of the Moon as well. Best described as emotionally self-indulgent, timid, wishy-washy, over reactive, moody, lazy, indecisive and imaginative. Pure emotion. If unhealthy or distorted imagination is fuelled by pure emotion it leads to feelings of emptiness and irrationality.

Full Moon in Pisces

No matter where our Sun or Moon is in our Natal Chart (Birth Chart), we are all effected by the Full Moon in Pisces.

The Pisces Full Moon is a good time to just let go and relax. One of the best ways is to meditate, even if it’s only a few minutes a day. When our minds are still we are open to insights and for synchronicities to occur.  Whatever you need will show up, problems take care of themselves, people will come to you, answers may come from a book, a movie where words speak to you on a level you’ve haven’t experienced before.

The Full Moon in Pisces can be a time of tears and sadness or both being shed at the same time so be aware addictive habits can be triggered like smoking, gambling and over eating, so it’s best to face the issues and not to avoid them. 

Don’t feed the dramas, meditation will help you disconnect from the everyday stuff and help you connect with yourself.

Creativity, art, metaphysics, meditation, healing and dreaming all are favoured here. Listen to your hearts intelligence no matter how bizarre it is. If you are in a relationship, job or a situation out of a sense of security now is the time to fine tune yourself in line with your hearts’ desire.

At this time the Pisces Full Moon faces the Sun in Virgo, its opposite sign. Pisces can turn our simple thoughts into vivid imaginations and we often feel ourselves being pulled between our fantasies and reality. The Pisces Full Moon is about bringing our inspirations and principals down to Earth to take physical form with the help of Virgo.
