On September 13th & 14th we are blessed with a Harvest Moon in the sign of Pisces! As Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac, this full moon is a potent time for endings, closure, and change. Completion of cycles and the tying up of loose ends. It’s also the last full moon before the Autumnal Equinox, so we are being called to review the events since the Summer Solstice, release what is outdated, and reap the harvest of our hard work.
Since the Summer Solstice, we have had two major eclipses, several planets in intense retrogrades, and seasons in the signs of Cancer, Leo, and Virgo. Since then we have undergone triggering circumstances, relationships, and patterns that have done one of 2 things: taught us about our shadow selves and how to heal, or added to our trauma.
Now is the time to review and see what patterns you can find, and discern where you have flourished vs. where you have suffered. *MAKE SURE* you show yourself the love and compassion you deserve, no matter what you uncover. We are all human, we all make mistakes. With the Sun, Mercury, and Venus all in Virgo + Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn, there is a higher propensity for you to be excessively self-critical and verbally abusive to yourself.
Remember & focus on your inner child—the pure, innocent version of yourself that is still learning how to grow. You wouldn’t call this child a piece of shit for making a mistake, so why would you talk to yourself that way? I could get into a whole separate blog post on re-parenting your inner child the way you wish you were raised, but the main point is: blunders run rampant in this imperfect world, to err is human. The only real way to overcome this is pairing compassion with accountability.
After making a mistake, choosing to take responsibility and consciously move forward with your new, learned knowledge is how we progress. When we feel shame from a mistake, we are judging ourselves as a failure. When we learn from the mistake & apply this knowledge, we can step out of the judgmental mindset we are projecting towards ourselves because we have gained WISDOM. The mistake has served a purpose, we can move forward.
We are all here on a soul journey of self-improvement. Making mistakes, learning from them, evolving our souls. Thriving. Welcoming new lessons. New triggers, new patterns. Learning new. Burning old. Starting over. Knowing that everything is a cycle can help us remember to release our desire to control & manipulate. Holding on to expectations is what causes our suffering, going with the flow allows us to receive what we need, let go when we need, and put us in the path of blessings and abundance.
And what perfect way to practice going with the flow than a Full Moon in Pisces? Two fish, swimming opposite directions, yet connected as a duality. One fish swims down, grounded & rooted in the physical, while the other swims up towards Higher Consciousness. So ask yourself, where am I out of balance? Focusing too much on the physical reality that you’ve neglected your magic, or alternatively lost so far in the clouds that you’ve lost your body altogether…
The last zodiacal archetype embodies this perfect balance with fluidity, compassion, and intuition. Channel this Piscean energy as triggers & truths arise closer and closer to this Full Moon. As light is shone into the depths of your subconscious, meet these revelations with compassion and softness. The truth is certain to be revealed, as this Full Moon in Pisces creates a massive square in the sky with the Sun, Mercury, & Venus in Virgo, Jupiter in Sagittarius, and Neptune in Pisces. All false structures crumble, disillusionment is out the window. The Truths revealed will be imperative to our current journey, and offer us insights on what’s coming the rest of this season, year, and coming alignment of Saturn & Pluto in Capricorn in January of 2020.
We are in the culmination of The Tower energy. When the old comes crashing down, there is room for rebirth, newness, fresh beginnings. We have been rapidly approaching this new beginning as we round out this decade, and shit is getting INTENSE! That’s why compassion & accountability are so important—there is no room for judgement & pity in this new paradigm. Only room for authenticity, healing, and conscious creation of our reality.
We have been experiencing this energy since the Summer Solstice, so be sure to take a moment to review & reorganize your perceptions of the events that have transpired. Note where you have healed and where you need healing. The rest of 2019 brings a massive, widespread burn of all outdated structures in preparation for the COSMIC BLESSINGS OF 2020! This shit can be painful as hell. But if you take any major advice from this blog….
COMPASSION AND ACCOUNTABILITY!!!!!!!
The Autumnal / Vernal Equinox, September 23rd, will bring a breath of fresh air as we are ending one season and beginning another. On this day we have equal parts light & dark—highlighting that theme of balance again. To make the most of this energy, keep your eyes open for hints as to where you are lacking balance & formulate a plan even out the scales. I’m sure the Full Moon in Pisces will illuminate plenty for you, but it is our daily habits & rituals that hold the most clues for where we need change.
Symptoms of imbalance include feeling disconnected, depressed, anxious, physical, emotional, & spiritual discomfort, intense feelings of rage & sadness, confusion, apathy, etc. In what areas of your life are you unhappy, upset, or discontented in your life? Flip through old journals, meditate, soul search… and write it down! Journaling is the best way to sort through all your thoughts & feelings, and you can look through entries of the past to help you identify patterns and cycles that may have slipped under your nose! I digress :-)
Once you are aware of what is blocking you, weed it out & let that shit go! Cut the cord! No room for bullshit that clouds our lives in this upcoming paradigm. The most important thing you can do is prioritize your joy, peace, and happiness in your day to day actions. Identify the tasks that cultivate these feelings, and do them EVERY DAMN DAY.
On the day of the Vernal Equinox, open your heart to the wisdom the cosmos have for you. If you listen closely, you may be blessed with information that aids you in finding balance and aligning with your Highest Divine Reality. The Universe wants you to succeed, and is always willing to reveal the Truths you need to succeed. All of September is a potent time for spell work, divination, and meditation, so make the most of it!
The Equinox also marks the first day of Libra season—more themes of balance, and hopefully airy detachment & the heightened ability to discern. Libra season also brings more social pursuits, opportunities for connection, and boosted charm and charisma!
The energy of endings is strong as we reach the end of 2019, so now is the best time to get a head start on the reviewing, releasing, revamping process our holistic being so desperately craves! Doing the work now will a) prevent us from further pain, the deepening of our trauma, and holding on to the past so tight it requires violent, dramatic removal… and b) lead us to the biggest, bestest, most bad ass blessings we could possibly receive. Consciously committing to our evolution shows the Universe we are ready for more—the next level of blessings & also lessons. Open & heal your heart to receive.
