Full Moon in Pisces | Collective Grief, Collective Mending

On March 6th, 2019 at 8:04am PST, the New Moon in Pisces opened a door for us around themes of Piscean matters: Healing, empathy, connecting to the collective unconscious for deeper meaning all come to mind. We are now presented with a Full Moon in Pisces, which arrives tonight, Friday September 13, 2019 at 9:33pm PST.

 

The swing from New to Full Moon indicates a cycle of growth, cultivation, and now with the full Moon, release. As always, look to the house in your chart that Pisces rules to get more information on how this lunation impacts you. This is where you will find this energy impacting you the most. 

Pisces is the twelfth and final sign of the zodiac, and in the space of this symbol we see duality, compassion, mutability, and echoes of soul. Symbolized by two fish tethered together by a ribbon (your choice of color ok!), we must remember that these are now just twin fish.

 

One of the creatures swims in the realm of day, the other inhabits oceans of nighttime, dream, and underworld. Their linkage reminds us of Pisces’s ability to hold space in both realms, and in that merge between reverie and reality, we find some of the sign’s most beautiful strengths. 

Understanding the world at this time is extremely difficult, at least for this astrologer. Knowing full well that we are reaching louder and more extreme moments of chaos and pain, we move through our days in anxiety, one eye toward an improbable future, the other focused on a shocking present. It is crucial at this moment to remember the archetype of Pisces, and invite in spaces of healing in our own hearts, bodies, and minds. 

Making space for the nurture, making space for kindness and understanding, is what is called for, here. The astrology of this moment asks us to suspend our need for a realistic grasp on reality, and to open the doors of our hearts to all that is unseen. 

The Virgo Sun opposing the Moon and Neptune in Pisces demonstrates that this is a time of confusion, fantasy, grief, elation, art, and confusion. Boundaries breakdown, we all find merge rather than individuation. It is an echo of Dionysos, rather than Apollo, that we hear at this time.

You can try all you want to have all your ducks in a row, but you’ll likely become distracted in the process. Instead, find ways to make space for a little gentle Piscean mess, something that connects you deeply to your emotional core, and the core of your empathetic heart. 

Like Virgo, her opposite, Pisces is motivated on behalf of humanity to find spaces of nurture and understanding. Pisces is always on the side of the underdog, and this lunation brings attention to those feelings. This sign gets a reputation for bringing in themes of emotionality and dreaminess, but we must also remember that this sign, as the final sign in the cycle of the zodiac, reminds us of our grief. Endings, loss, and culmination as as much a part of this sign as the creative curiosity the sign gets recognized for. 

With all the planets in Virgo (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars) right now forming a tense square to Jupiter, we know that there is pressure in the sky, energy skiing us to do battle between our sense of groundedness and our sense of expansion. We may feel caught up in confusion, like we’re forced to prioritize certain things, or do battle with others that just aren’t serving our highest potential.

Remember that as this terse astrological situation unfolds, we also have a gorgeous trine between that stellium and Pluto, lord of the underworld, as well as an energized sextile between the Moon and Pluto. Pluto pushes us toward transformation. Remember that honoring your actual bones deep truth is the most important strategy right now. Doing so opens up portals to loving your past self, and honoring what’s to come.

      Finding ifnormation on where you planets lie, can help give insight to things like this. I highly suggest Cristina’s Natal Charting class on our Online School.
