Pisces Full Moon

FULL MOON is a time of culmination and emotional release, each month creating a tension, and opportunity for growth, in a certain area of our lives. At full moon there is always a polarity at play within us, one that can reveal to us more about who we are.

The Virgo-Pisces axis combines earth and water elements and is one of the more inward, gentle full moons of the year, but also the most sensitive of the six polarities of our lives as revealed through the noble and ancient art of astrology. Virgo is focussed on structure, manifestation, analysis – while its opposite sign Pisces is all about dissolution, about accepting what is and merging with it. Virgo wants to make things better, Pisces accepts things can’t always be as we want them, and meets that fact with compassion. Virgo is material reality, Pisces is heavenly spirit – working in harmony together these two polarities can give us much power and joy, and give us the ability to bring the light vibrations of spirit to earth. This polarity is here to teach us how to ground our spirituality in practical ways, and to remind us to make sure we are not over absorbed in either the material or immaterial realities, to find balance between them.

“Pisces represents the sum total of everything while Virgo represents that part you are aware of and are actively working on. Virgo keeps accurate track of which karma, how much and when to be repaid. Pisces feels his way through. In this axis, when Pisces acts, he feels the joy of liberation as Virgo guides where to act. Pisces is abstract while Virgo is his rational pragmatic mate. A Virgo acts with precision, Pisces goes with the flow. Together they work beautifully, the iron fist in a velvet glove, completing karma, experiencing the understanding and joy of completion.” https://psychologicallyastrology.com/2019/05/06/virgo-and-pisces-the-most-sensitive-axis-part-3/

Virgo is the sixth sign of the zodiac, ending the first half of the astrological year where the energetic focus is on the self. At Virgo we get to see clearly what kind of reality we have created for ourselves since the start of the cycle in Spring, and the problems or issues that have arisen to be addressed as we enter the second half of the year, where the focus is about self and others from Libra through to Pisces, before the cycle starts again with individuated Aries.

“This Virgo-Pisces axis represents karmic balance, completion, realisation of the Ultimate Experience and dissolution of the self-ego.”

No wonder it’s the most supremely sensitive of all the full moon polarities! If we can balance the needs and wishes of our individuated self with the awareness (and the feeling, because Pisces reveals through the emotional and spiritual bodies) of our place in and oneness with the Whole, we can seize the opportunity for healing, to release old patterns and problems while opening to the wonders and mysteries the cosmos longs to bring us when we are able and open to receive.

The first week of each moon month is the best time for setting intentions and goals. When the first quarter moon arrives it is time to take action, get things moving. As the moon waxes to fullness the energy supports refining and adapting whatever we are developing, and there can be a gradual increase in tension, or emotional pressure as the challenge and opportunity of the incoming polarity kicks in. Then at the full moon we reach an energetic peak, a time of release and start to receive the rewards for the efforts put in.

In 2021 the full moon is followed immediately by the Autumn Equinox – a time of balance and reflection as the Sun moves into Venus-ruled Libra and summer gives way to autumn. The spirit will calm and we will harvest the results of the efforts we have put into our own growth during the year as spirit takes us deeper into the journey of relationship with others for the second half of the zodiac wheel – our lovers, our community and our connection to the cosmos: the stars and planets will invite and guide our human consciousness to explore, travel and discover during the autumn and winter.

At Pisces Full Moon and the Equinox the cosmos offers us the chance to see more clearly who we are, what we are creating in our lives and how to move forwards confidently.
