Full Moon in Pisces | September 2, 2020 - softening our resistance to change, liberation, strokes of genius, endings, disappointments, let go and let God

On September 2, 2020 at 1:14AM EDT the Pisces Moon opposes the Virgo Sun at 10 degrees giving us this month's Full Moon; our annual Full Moon in Pisces.

Full Moons bring things to light, to peak energy - to a culmination, to an ending. It is the space in our breath cycle when our lungs are full and we need to exhale. Or maybe if we have been holding our breath, now is the time we must noisily gasp for air ...

This Pisces Full Moon brings smooth endings and soft landings that can ease us toward something ELSE (and with the major players all retrograde, this could be something with its roots in the past). 

Maybe something we weren't ready for before (or desperate enough to try!).

With an opportunistic sextile to change-maker Uranus divinely timed, maybe watery/limitless Pisces will soften our resistance to change!

This Moon (in addition to being uber potent in its own right) is preparing us/clearing the road for the September 17th New Moon in Virgo when this previously unrealistic/impractical DREAM might finally be well-timed and DO-ABLE. Virgo ensures this will not be all about us - this is about the service/work we are here to give the world. Which we are about to find out is all the same thing!

Any loose ends that need to be tied up over the next couple weeks need to get tied up.

Endings/disappointments can be emotional now, but keep in mind there is something else behind door number two. Look around!

With the Moon in Pisces and the Sun in Virgo, the Virgo/Pisces polarity is activated.

Pisces ruler Neptune strong in his home sign of Pisces, though retrograde (so whatever we are dealing with now, won't be brand new). Virgo ruler, Mercury, strong in her/his home sign of Virgo. Pisces/Virgo is a dance between the infinite (infinity)/wholeness/non-judgement/the dream/Pisces and the finite (the here and now)/the pieces/discernment/the practical steps that make the dream work/Virgo.

Pisces rules the 12th house of what we do last, what is hidden and put away, the ways we self-sabotage because from our vantage point in our 1st house we can't see what's behind us/don't know what we don't know, illusions and delusions, escape, sacrifice, our addictions, our imagination, lack of boundaries, connection, compassion, charity, hospitals, prisons, the things we have forgotten, our distant pasts, our ancestors, water, sleep, illness, healing, spirituality, GRIEF, God.... it is a mystical space of MAGIC where anything can happen.

Let's unpack the chart!

The Moon, at 10 degrees Pisces, opposes the Sun at 10 degrees Virgo.  

The Moon is exactly sextile Uranus. The Sun exactly trine. The Moon sextiles a retrograde Pallas. The Sun trines Pallas. The Full Moon is making nice (giving each other some space this time!) with the Cappy pile-up - more good news and no small thing! Mars squares Venus and Saturn (both waning) and Venus exactly opposes Saturn. The Sun is inconjunct Vesta. The Moon is inconjunct Chiron. Challenges with what we value/hold sacred. Challenges with old triggers/wounds.

I don't want to muddy things up and cloud the water with all these asepects, but I don't want all of this to sound too simple either, although I doubt anyone thinks by now anything about 2020 will be simple.

The Moon's sextile to Uranus IS THE BIG ASPECT. This speaks of LIBERATION, letting go, getting out of our own way. Change. The future. Genius.

Keep in mind - these are both BIG energies.

Far out there. We are talking Neptune/Uranus. We can get really lost in portals like this (luckily we have the Sun opposing from Virgo to keep our feet on the ground - and that's where you want yours ... on the ground).

I am talking about escaping into lalaland, rose colored glasses wearing rose-colored glasses, rebelling through drugs/alcohol.

If the best use of these energies are realized we are talking compassion AND progress. Magic and science. God and technology.

There could be signs now, whispers, synchronicities.

We might be faced with a sudden choice or maybe the choice is out of our hands. We could feel a fast push (no dawdling near train tracks this week, ok?) out of our comfort/discomfort zone. We let go. Then we let go a little more. Then our hands open and WE LET GO. We can't control this ending and anyway - look over HERE (I am pointing at your Taurus house now!) - here is something new, forward-leaning. LIBERATING. It's always easier to move toward something new than it is to move away from something old, isn't it? Or maybe there is nowhere else left to look. Life will use whatever it takes to get us to that lifeboat that only looks like a harebrained scheme that might not work.

And it might not work because that's how life works.

There are no guarantees here. But the thing that doesn't work will be the thing that gets us to the thing that does. There might not be a train from you to New York, for example, so you might have to take the train to Philadelphia and then another train to Newark and then finally a train to New York. Which is where the Pisces trusting in God/life/the Universe/your ancestors part comes in. Bring snacks. And a good book.

Your Taurus house (Uranus) has the goods - the way through this baby. Collectively this opportunity will be about our resources, money, our values, our self-esteem.

Neptune - ruler of this Full Moon - is trining Venus (brakes off). And Venus is past this trine (exact last Sunday), but it's still in play and now Venus has moved into her exact opposition to Saturn. So, what we want is not just going to be given to us here.  We are going to need to work for it. Put in the time/make an investment. This could feel heavy. We might hear a "no" and then have to figure out how to deal with that. Maybe it's a bump in the road and we can get over it or maybe it's the mountain that sends us in the brand-new direction.

Venus in Cancer (as us) is a little needy/wants what she wants.

And if necessity really is the mother of invention and I think she is, then this obstacle isn't really an obstacle.

And I don't mean to make light of it because yes it will feel like an obstacle. Venus/Saturn can make it hard to feel the love. Hard to see the value. With Saturn retrograde, maybe we have this new thing we want, but these old responsibilities/limits seem to be standing in the way. No time. Not enough money. I's we didn't dot and T's we didn't cross that are biting us in the ass now. Whatever this is, keep in mind that Saturn delays things we aren't ready for. His squares and oppositions are necessary - they are the blocks/stop signs/obstacles that we realize later on we needed for motivation, grounding, stability, integrity. But they might feel like sh*t when they are happening.

The Moon is sextiling (opportunity) Pallas who is stationing direct in just a couple days, this makes for good instinctive problem solving. We are blending our instincts/intuition with our intellectual abilities. Change is coming. Change is here. If we want the world to change - we need to change.

God, the universe, our ancestors, our past lives and every good thought/action we've ever had in this one are lining up to support us. Make sure you get out and walk in this one. Pray. Meditate. Listen to music. Get into water. Mercury is making oodles of good aspects this week. Talk. Write. Reach out.

September looks challenging, so let's use this kick-off energy for the best start we can get. The best use of this Full Moon's energy is to 1. let go and let God and 2. make welcome whatever arrives. Yes, you could have skipped right to this paragraph and saved yourself 10 minutes - sorry :)

Alot has changed in our lives since the Pisces New Moon last February. Our daily lives, our relationships, our money/resources. Not much has been left untouched. So what do we value now?

We've had years and years of Neptune/Saturn and now, almost like passing a baton in a relay race, Saturn, readying Uranus for their work ahead (through us) as co-rulers of Aquarius, passes a baton to Uranus.

The future won't be stopped.

xo all
