Harvest Full Moon in Pisces: Faith in Life’s Unfolding

On Sep 10, 05:58 AM ET, we experience a Full Moon in Pisces, happening while Mercury is stationary retrograde in Libra. The Full Moon is conjunct Neptune, the modern ruler of Pisces: this lunation invites us to open our hearts to Life and cultivate full trust and faith in its unfolding.

The current Full Moon is the closest one to the Fall Equinox and, for this reason, it is popularly referred to as the Harvest Moon. For millennia, this lunation has represented a time of celebration of our efforts and communion with the land. In the past, in the Northern Hemisphere of the globe, this Full Moon marked the culmination of a season of work and was an indicator of the time of harvest, as it allowed people to have additional hours of light at night to reap the crops. 

 

Harvest Full Moon in Pisces: Order & Chaos, Structure & Flow

 

The current Full Moon culminates a chapter that began six months ago, on March 2, with the New Moon in Pisces conjunct with her ancient ruler, Jupiter. We are also at the maturation point of the lunar cycle that started two weeks ago, with the New Moon in Virgo. From now on, the Moon is going to receive less and less light each night, inviting us to slowly let go of our original intentions as the lunar month comes to an end.

Full Moons are times of release, conclusion, and closure. Since Pisces is the last sign of the Zodiac, the feeling of closure and culmination is even stronger. Full Moons take place when the Moon aligns with the Sun at a 180º angle, technically known as opposition, and the Earth is between them. The Sun and the Moon are transiting in opposite Zodiac signs, emphasizing the need to find a balance between two complementary polarities. 

Right now, the spotlight is on the Virgo-Pisces axis, the axis of service, healing, devotion, and mindfulness. The Virgo-Pisces polarity invites us to find order in chaos and balance structure and flow. While Virgo is about fully honoring our humanness, inhabiting our bodies and the mundane reality we are experiencing daily, Pisces corresponds to the impulse to transcend our human experience and connect with something beyond our separate selves. The activation of the Virgo-Pisces axis invites us to remain mindful and respect the inherent sacredness of everything.

 

Full Moon conjunct Neptune: Mystical, Transcendental, & Otherworldly

 

The Harvest Full Moon is conjunct Neptune, the modern planetary ruler of Pisces. This adds a strong transcendental, mystical, and otherworldly feeling to this lunation. Neptune and Pisces are connected to the last evolutionary stage of the Zodiac, which is about the dissolution of boundaries and of the separate sense of self that was formed during the previous eleven signs. Neptune is currently in retrograde motion, which increases the introspective, reflective, and contemplative qualities of this Full Moon.

While our inclination to fantasize and daydream is likely to increase, this Full Moon may also mark a time to release our attachment to something that isn’t True. It could offer us opportunities to become aware of Truth and uncover illusions we have been relying upon. These days, we may have chances to let go of naivety and get to access a deeper level of awareness, acceptance, and trust in Life. 

 

Letting Go of the Need to Define Ourselves

 

The conjunction of Neptune and the Full Moon in Pisces magnifies our empathy, our intuition, and our sensitivity. Neptune and Pisces rule dreams, sleep, and circadian rhythms, linked to the production of melatonin by the pineal gland. For this reason, this lunation is likely to enhance our dream life, which could be especially vivid and full of symbolism, while increasing our capacity to access meditative and flow states.

The Sun-Neptune opposition is going to be exact on September 16, and we will keep feeling it for the entire week ahead. This aspect could bring a feeling of dissolution of an old identity, sense of self, or sense of purpose. On the one hand, we could feel a bit lost, as we may feel emptiness, lack of motivation, and an unexplainable urge to let go of something without knowing what comes next. On the other hand, we could experience a sense of freedom and joy, as we let go of the need to define ourselves or know our path in detail and simply allow ourselves to be and walk the path that unfolds in front of us.

 

Full Moon sextile Uranus & square Mars: Need for Excitement

 

Both Uranus and Mars are in aspect to the Full Moon, adding a more proactive and action-oriented quality to the receptive, sensitive, and empathic Piscean and Neptunian energy. These alignments increase our need for change, stimulation, experimentation, and movement.

Uranus is in Taurus, in a trine to the Sun, and in a sextile to the Moon. These are both harmonic aspects that are facilitating change, giving us the courage to make different choices, to choose differently, stand out from the crowd, and explore beyond our habitual social networks. The activation of Uranus will catalyze innovation and creativity, indicating a desire to embrace new ways of being and honor our individuality.

Mars is in Gemini, squaring both the Sun in Virgo and the Moon in Pisces. These alignments add a passionate quality to this lunation, increasing our determination and our willingness to fight for what we desire. Taking time to notice our triggers without immediately reacting to them is advised, as impulsivity is likely to be present these days.

Mercury retrograde in Libra: Reassessing Communications in Relationships 

 

Just a few hours before the Full Moon, Mercury has stationed retrograde at 8º55’ Libra, beginning its third retrograde cycle of 2022. This transit, lasting until October 2, is an opportunity to reevaluate, renew, review, and reassess our way to communicate with others, as well as our way of thinking and perceiving relationships. Mercury retrograde in Libra invites us to refine our awareness of communication dynamics, reflect on how we habitually approach confrontations, discussions, and conflicts, and question our way to show up in relationships, our values, our needs, and the expectations we may place on others.

Mercury comes back to Virgo on September 23. This shift represents a chance for us to establish adjustments in our daily life and work, reorganize our routines, and reassess our standards and priorities. Mercury retrograde in Virgo invites us to reflect on our healing journey, rethink our concept of wellness, and redefine the way we perceive and care for our health. It will give us chances to self-correct, if needed, and come back to alignment, with deeper discernment and awareness.

Mercury is stationary while in opposition to retrograde Jupiter in Aries, the ancient ruler of Pisces, and in a trine to Mars in Gemini. The Mercury-Jupiter opposition invites us to be mindful of the difference between opinions and truth, facts and beliefs. It increases our capacity to communicate in a charismatic manner, but also the tendency to exaggerate and misrepresent facts. The Mercury-Mars trine supports assertiveness and clarity in our communications, it inspires us to speak our truth confidently and directly and offers us chances to empower ourselves through written and spoken word.

Harvest Full Moon in Pisces: Building Bridges Between Physical and Spiritual

 

This Full Moon magnifies our sensitivity, our empathy, and our awareness of what is taking place around us, as both Neptune and Pisces correlate with the invisible threads that link us all, with the collective emotional body, with the collective unconscious, and with all mass phenomena. For this reason, what is happening to other people and in the world may affect us particularly intensely, and we may not even realize it. These days, distinguishing our feelings from other people’s feelings or the collective frequency may be challenging, and we may experience sensations and emotions that seemingly have no clear cause. A sense of confusion could arise and disorientation may result from it.

The activation of the Virgo-Pisces axis encourages us to build bridges between the physical and the spiritual. The Full Harvest Moon in Pisces is an invitation to remember how our physical body represents a doorway to a deeper sensitivity and an expanded awareness, when we ground ourselves firmly and honor our body’s needs. This lunation invites us to find harmony between flow and organization, surrender and discipline, intuition and logic. The Pisces Full Moon conjunct Neptune inspires us to focus on being and not only on doing, represents an opportunity to integrate more awareness into our daily lives, and reminds us to make time for more conscious moments of stillness.

Full Moon in Aries: Inner Empowerment – Harvest Moon

On October 1, at 5:05 PM ET, the Full Harvest Moon in Aries kicks off the new month, inviting more excitement, zeal, and passion into our lives.

Full Moons represent the peak phase of the lunar cycle, a moment of blossoming, culmination, and maturation of our efforts. They offer us the chance to release the results of our work, to share it with the collective, and to let go of everything that we no longer want to carry.

Yet, Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac: this infuses the Harvest Moon with the energy of a new beginning, it increases our desire for freedom, new experiences, and lowers our tolerance for boredom and limitations.

The Harvest Moon is the Full Moon closest to the Autumnal Equinox. In the Northern Hemisphere, this event signals the beginning of Fall and the need to harvest the crops: it held a specific significance for ancient peoples, and it was considered a very karmic time.

In the Southern Hemisphere, this Full Moon announces the beginning of Spring and the end of the hardships of Winter. It represents the perfect moment to share any project that was born through the reflection and introspection that took place during the colder months.

To celebrate the arrival of this Full Moon, on October 1 at 9:45 PM ET, we are hosting Global Live Full Moon in Aries Meditation on our YouTube channel. We invite you to join us, and invite others to meditate together with us. Tap here to find our scheduled live meditation.

 

Getting in Touch with our Needs and Desires

 

The Moon at 9°08’ of Aries joins retrograde Chiron and opposes the Sun in Libra, bringing to light relationship dynamics that need to be changed or released, and illuminating wounds related to our self-worth, our sexuality, and our need for freedom.

The opposition between Sun and Moon taking place on any Full Moon always signals a creative tension between what we want to be and what we think we should be. In this case, the Aries-Libra axis is involved: this dynamic brings up a theme of self versus others that strongly plays out in all our relationships.

This Full Moon in Aries reminds us that we need to feel whole, happy, satisfied, and complete within ourselves before we try to achieve those sensations or complete ourselves through our interactions with others. She invites us to cultivate our self-esteem, to develop independence and autonomy, to meet our individual needs and desires before we expect someone else to do so.

 

Full Moon in Aries: Doing More of What We Love 

 

People with their natal Moon in Aries are extremely lively, enthusiastic, passionate, and great motivators who are not afraid of going out of their comfort zone, take risks, and do something completely unfamiliar. The Full Moon in Aries represents an invitation to dedicate more time to what we are passionate about. This cosmic event wants us to do what we love, what makes us shine, what excites us, what makes us feel fully alive, and to dive deeper into it.

As we consciously cultivate and generate sensations of happiness, love, and personal fulfillment, we naturally shift our frequency, raise our vibration, and invite more of these energies into our lives. What makes you smile? What makes your eyes sparkle? What makes your Soul happy? Do more of that, and you will notice the benefits ripple and expand in all other areas of your life.

 

Asserting ourselves Consciously

 

The Full Moon in Aries illuminates dynamics related to how we channel and release anger and frustration, inviting reflection about immature reactions, impulsive decisions, and behavior patterns that need to be outgrown. Consciously working with the energy of the Full Moon in Aries helps us intentionally direct our willpower and strength, and express our opinions without being harmful or hurtful.

Movement is one of the best ways through which we can harness the intense frequency of this cosmic event and liberate our bodies from stress, anger, tension, and repressed emotion. Dedicating time to anything that supports the balance of our inner masculine and feminine energies will help us act from a place of alignment.

Venus is now transiting the last degrees of Leo and creating a supportive trine to Mars in Aries, ruler of the Full Moon. Together with the positive influence of Mercury in Libra, this alignment will facilitate our relationship dynamics and the constructive communication of our needs, desires, and values to other people.

The Fire Trine between Venus and Mars is a wonderful influence for our romantic and social life: we can easily take advantage of its energy to cultivate a more passionate and enthusiastic attitude in everything we do.

 

Finding Purpose in Hardships

 

This Harvest Full Moon in Aries feels like an open road that we are not allowed to take just yet. Mars is in retrograde motion, transiting his home sign, and he is conjunct Eris, dwarf planet named after the Goddess of Chaos and Discord. Moreover, they both square Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn.

These aspects reflect an amount of frustration and tension that we can’t simply ignore or bypass. The Full Moon offers us the invitation to explore the underlying nervousness, the stress, the anxiety, and the anger, and encourages us to find ways to create something good out of this highly volatile and reactive energy.

We need to be gentle with ourselves in this process and forgive ourselves if sometimes we can’t be our best version, or if we struggle to keep a positive mindset. We will inevitably react on impulse and make mistakes: that’s ok, what matters is that we learn something from it. These are very potent planetary alignments that are not to play with, and we are going to feel their influence in waves for the rest of 2020.

We may have the sensation that we have no control over the circumstances, the limitations, and the restrictions we are facing. Nonetheless, we can choose to work to master ourselves and our reactions. We can find healthy ways to deal with and express feelings of discomfort, and we can choose to make conscious decisions on a daily basis.

The Full Moon in Aries gives us an extra boost of energy: this cosmic event inspires us to find purpose in hardships and to keep moving forward despite the difficulties and challenges we encounter.

Full Moon conjunct Chiron: Learning from Pain

 

The Full Moon is conjunct with Chiron in Aries. This aspect brings our focus on wounds related to our self-esteem, our self-worth, and our sexuality. During these days, we are likely to feel drawn to reflect on the ways we assert ourselves. We may evaluate the way we go after what we want, how we express our individuality, our needs, and our sexual desires.

Feelings of shame and unworthiness can emerge to be elaborated and understood. When did you first feel ashamed of yourself? When do you think you first questioned your self-worth? Can you see a repeating theme or pattern throughout your life? How do you allow other people to treat you? How do you treat yourself? These questions may offer you important insights during this time.

The Moon conjunct Chiron in Aries can bring up deep emotional wounds related to our sense of self, our self-image, and our inherent worth, that can sabotage our relationships because unconsciously we don’t feel worthy of receiving love.

The invitation of this aspect is not to be afraid to fully feel our feelings, to carry our scars with pride, and turn our pain into wisdom by consistently being there for ourselves and not running away from difficult feelings. The conjunction between the Moon and Chiron reminds us that it is perfectly ok to feel broken and lost, yet we don’t need to stay stuck there.

Chiron aspects always offer us the possibility of deep emotional healing, that can only come through embracing our uniqueness and our sensitivity. Through the inner work we have done on ourselves, we can hold space for others and help them overcome their challenges too.

This Full Moon may bring us back to events that happened around July 14, when the powerful conjunction between Mars and Chiron took place. Take some time to think about what was taking place in your life back then. Some of the issues that emerged during that time have the potential to be fully understood, healed, and released.

 

Full Moon in Aries: Taking our Power Back

 

The Full Moon in Aries wants us to empower ourselves. She gives us the opportunity to step into our strength and to let go of the fear of fully embracing all that we are.

Aries is a pioneer: it is the Zodiac sign related to leadership, bravery, and courage. This Full Moon invites us to open new paths and not be afraid to go to the beat of our own drum. Sticking to the choices and commitments we make as best as we can is what grants us strength, self-confidence, and a sense of agency.

Working with the energy of this Full Moon has the potential to help us release limiting beliefs and behavior patterns that are not supporting our growth. This cosmic event gives us the chance to let go of the fear of owning who we are and inspires us to embrace our individuality, uniqueness, and instinctual self-expression.
