The Moon waxed Full in Pisces tonight. It’s a watery rollercoaster ride into realms that are ethereal, impressionable, psychic, imaginative, intangible, otherworldly, compassionate, unconditional and sometimes substance abusing, escapist, unstable, delusional, self destructive, martyr/ victim, past lifetime connected, depressed, profound and Spiritual all rolled into One. The shapeshifting , chameleon-like nature of foggy, oftentimes inscrutable and fey, compelling and maddening mutable Sign of the Fish is our Late Summer Moon. The Moon in Pisces opposed Sun in Virgo today at 12:03am PT at 13° 53′ of Pisces. This very powerful Full Moon in The last sign of the Zodiac portends a Completion, Ending, Finality, a Turning Point, and a farewell to something or someone that no longer belongs in your life. This melancholy moon brings confusion, sorrow, ennui, disillusionment, deception, emotional weakness and will have an impact on your hopes , aspirations, plans, and dreams . It also strongly impacts your love life …ultimately for the Best.
This Full Moon is doubly strong due to its connection to Neptune, Pisces’ ruler…also transiting Pisces. This Lunation falls on the same degree as Neptune’s Retrograde Station last June 16th. Both transits also see the Moon conjunct Neptune on the same degree of the Zodiac! This is highly unusual, rare, and very strange: Textbook Pisces. The other anomaly involves Mercury just now Direct after weeks of a very disturbing and damaging Retrograde stationing direct on the September 6th Full Moon on the SAME degree as the August 21 Solar Eclipse in Leo….so impactful to the United States of America.
The September 6th Full Moon at 13°53′ Pisces is influenced by Neptune Rx at 12°49′ Pisces. Keywords for this timeframe are Spirituality, Idealism, Ascension, Dreams, Miracles, and Healing. The flip side of these energies can also dredge up Illusion, Delusion, Resentment, Deception, Manipulation, Weakness, Mental Confusion , Deep Sorrows from the Past…or even Past Lifetimes, and a vagueness that is ineffable, melancholy, and yet undeniable. How will the Moon/Neptune connection influence your wellbeing or affect your close relationships? Please count to ten and wait two to three days before throwing the baby out with the bath water or engaging in self defeating or damaging behaviors .
Moon conjunct Neptune can increase emotions, reactions, and lends a sensitivity to the atmosphere. Storms, volcanic events, and seismic windows opening are all part and parcel of this Effect. It is linked to Hurricane Irma barreling down on the US VIRGIN ISLANDS, PUERTO RICO, AND FLORIDA …all related to the August 21st Eclipse… The Piscean nature can Sense thoughts, feelings , motives and agendas of others . This can make you feel very angstvoll, uneasy or even weakened and physically ill. Be apprised and safeguard your health at this time. Mistaken Views of Reality abound. Cross purposes, loneliness, deep disappointment or disheartening interactions with associates, friends or loved ones can further isolate or depress . You are vulnerable , impressionable and can be susceptible to deception, gossip, betrayal, or even scandal. Your Dreams are powerful messages now but may be hard to fathom or decipher. Our fantasies come alive and strange behaviors can become the norm for a few days. Suspicion , paranoia, and victimization are to be noted and avoided like the Plague… lest they grow into escapism, denial, and even alcoholic, or other self-destructive habits , such as drug abuse, eating disorders, sex addiction or sado masochism. Yes some heavy stuff but remember that Pisces is a deep deep cookie and Neptune dissolves everything into one Universal Higher..or Lower Consciousness. Pay Attention to Signs and Signals. Don’t rule out Ufos, Paranormal Phenomena, or Visitations from Other Realms.
Full Moon of September 2017 is An Eye Opener. Denial will not suffice and the harsh realities of Life are exposed by the reflected Light of our satellite . Consciousness raising activity is Beneficial. Meditation, prayer and exercise are favored. A heightened sense of self -awareness can ground you during this period of emotional quicksand and will help you sift the good from the bad . Cut out the voices, old tapes, negative engrams, or self pitying and self defeating behaviors. Please note that some psychic impressions may mislead or be off target. However Compassion, Unconditional Displays of Love, and True Service to Others without self seeking or expectation of Return can uplift and protect during this fragile Time. You can be of great Benefit to the downtrodden, disenfranchised, the victimized , or the outsider and loner. Your emotional comfort anspd succor will move the Himalayas and can heal division and deep pain.
The old maxim “Cleanliness is next to G-dliness ” will be very important because this full moon is associated with, susceptibility or weakness and fragility or illness. Please be advised that the effects of drugs, alcohol and even sedatives or anesthesia are heightened…possibly dangerous as our judgment can be impaired. An increased risk of exposure to poisons , chemicals, infectious agents …and radioactivity exists.
Neptune stationed retrograde conjunct the Moon last June 16th at 14°15′ Pisces. Today the Full Moon is conjunct Neptune retrograde at 13°53′ Pisces. I don’t believe in coincidence so the fated or Karmic nature of this synchronicity is not to be dismissed. High Strangeness, unusual events, prophetic dreams, premonitions, clairvoyance, deja vu, ESP, paranormal occurrences and non ordinary Reality are the New Normal. The Fixed star Achernar is now at 15°34′ Pisces. This celestial influence is not very powerful but it will shine a more positive influence on this Lunation. Achernar is in Alpha Eridani. This 0.5 magnitude blue-white star located in the Mouth in the River, Eridanus Constellation is named for the Arabic phrase آخر النهر (ākhir an-nahr) which means “The End of the River” We are , indeed, at the End of THOSE THINGS THAT DO OFTEN LIE TOO DEEP FOR TEARS. The Mouth in the River acts like the great benefic planet Jupiter. It bestows kindness, altruism , charity, True happiness, success , upstanding morals, a faithful adherence to religious beliefs, spiritual beliefs , or devotion to a Path or Philosophy. People in Senior Government positions , Spiritual Leaders, or members of the Clergy are affected by this transit as well.
Moon/Neptune in Pusces opposing Sun in Virgo can creates tensions at home, work…or on the World Stage. We may see a more confrontational environment with the USA , Korea and China . Sun opposing the Moon focuses energies on the Pisces/ Virgo Axis. It brings attention to close relationships and how they are influenced , made by openness and honesty or broken by confusion and deception. Others may try to pull you in different directions, attack your integrity or honesty, your spiritual path, motives or even your private life. The next two weeks are affected strongly by this moon phase . This will be an especially sensitive time on the Personal and Transpersonal Stage leading up to the New Moon in Virgo on September 19th. This date is also the end of the Mercury Retrograde Shadow. Again there is no coincidence. This fortnight highlights emotional and romantic concerns so you may be feeling spread thin, leery or suspicious of others’ motives and vulnerable.
Sun opposing Neptune adds to an already high level of mental confusion, deception, insecurity , dejection, or discouragement. You’ll see that denial or escapist tendencies will not permit you to avoid facing or dealing with the matters at hands, pressing concerns or otherwise harsh realities of life……Now you will need to protect yourself, insulate yourself from attack or take some precautions to avoid more loss and disappointment. Weakened or fragile boundaries and defenses will attract unsavory characters, psychic vampires, and odd bedfellows. Manipulative, self serving, fake, phony or dishonest people may appear and try to take advantage of you. Resist buying anything uneccesary; rather sell off things you don’t really need. Beware of castles in the sky , get rich quick schemes , empty promises and snake oil salesmen. If something sounds too good to be true then it probably is not worth the while.
Utilize this transit to restablish clarity after the debilitating and disturbing Mercury Retrograde we just suffered. Be very clear to yourself and to others . Keep your intention above board. If you tell the Truth, you don’t have to have a good memory! There can be no gray areas, only black or white, yes or no. By way of deception,thou shalt do war may work for the Mossad but any underhanded or nefarious behaviors , tactics , or agendas are detrimental now. You will be exposed by Piscean intuition and Virgoan analysis. So keep it Real, Keep it Clean. If you do face more disappointment, disillusionment and discouragement, PLEASE RESIST temptation to escape to the Netherworlds. I know that the harshness of facing some difficult truths makes escapism , especially through mind altering substances, very attractive to Some. But Beware ! Pisces rules poison or poisoning and Virgo rules Hospitsks. . Remember, you will be more susceptible to alcohol, addiction and overdose, as well as being lied to or ripped off now.
To tie this together the August 21st Solar Eclipse made sweeping Change inevitable . Now bold, confident moves are necessary for long term prosperity and success. This Full Moon is the Last Hurrah of anything that stands in the way of our idealism, dreams, hopes and wishes. It dredges up illusion, deception, spiritual and physical weakness mixed with much confusion. You may lose faith in your talents or lose your way temporarily on the Oatg to realizing your Cherished goals and dreams for a better, happier Future. This is very serious stuff and is compounded by self delusion and deception . You experience palpable fear that you may lose something you have or not get what you so deeply desire. The Full Moon may risk your long-term success and advancement . Relationship problems, physical illness are pitfalls as are financial strains and perceptions of loss. You may feel weak , ineffectual, or invisible. This can be fought with unconditional loving kindness, and true Compassion without attachment or aversion. I know this forecast is quite heavy and disturbing but it is the Last Hurdle, the Last Hoop, The Last Transit that impedes but does not Block a new way, a new path, a Newer and Happuer Life . If emotions or problems start to overtake or subsume you, if you feel disconnected , alone, overwhelmed, saddened , frightened, and if you do begin to lose hope, remember this full moon is Pisces……and is warping, distorting , your view of reality. It is A Bizarro Moon at its Worst. Things are NOT as they seem. Fight back by remaining Focused and Undeterred. Faith Moves Mountains , so pray For a Miracle. Steady thinking dispels the Piscean nebulousness, and the fog will dissipate like it foes under the Light of a Piwerful Sun. Use this transit to reveal Truths, expose shenanigans and lies. Remember the old saying that we are as sick as our secrets. Uncovering, Discovering , and Discarding are Watchwords. Although we may experience painful Truths…we are set free by them. Excitement, optimism,passion , and renewed purpose will resurface in a few days or weeks and will replace mistrust , sorrows and disappointments. Determination, and not wavering, or faltering in sustained effort brings Remarkable results aided by last Month’s Eclipse by the third week of this Month. Hold on and DON’T GIVE UP.
May the hearts of all beings be filled with happiness and peace ,free from suffering and distress. May all beings be safe and secure ,free from fear and harm. May all beings be healthy and prosperous ,free from pain, illness, and lack. May all beings live joyfully and with ease, free from struggle and conflict.
