This has been quite the intense summer with energy being stirred up on all levels after July’s eclipses, especially in terms of global climate changes and catastrophic storms. On a deeply human level, massive tragedies are always difficult to comprehend, but this can also be seen as a cleansing of collective wounds and a transformational outpouring of compassion to our fellow humans. This Full Moon is in the water sign Pisces and seven (yes, seven) planets, including the sun, are in earth signs! The emphasis on Pisces and Virgo planets is a call to be compassionate AND practical; as well as a message from Mother Earth to honor Her, and ourselves, as One body. Since this Full Moon falls on a weekend for most of us (Friday, the 13th), it is the perfect time to find a relaxing spot, open your heart and feel gratitude.

FULL MOON IN PISCES SEPTEMBER 13, 2019
This Full Moon falls in the sign of Pisces, the twelfth sign of the zodiac; the mutable, shape-shifting, water sign, which rules the magical, emotional realms of the subconscious and dream worlds. It is the sign of the poet and mystic; the artist and healer; the savior and sinner; the shaman and physicist. The sign of Pisces is considered the “Key to the Subconscious” and the vast ocean of collective human memory. Edgar Cayce calls this the “akashic record”. Memories and dreams which have been buried just below consciousness now come to the surface to give us more insight and information. This is a good time to look to your dreams for messages.
Pisces is probably the most misunderstood sign of the zodiac; and like its symbol, the two fishes swimming in opposite directions, it is a sign that embraces both duality and Oneness…the universe where subatomic physics and religion merge. The “old age” of Pisces was associated with the symbol of the fish. Now, as we move forward in our evolutionary process, Pisces becomes the “Grail” which holds the elixir of life, symbolizing our baptism in the New Age.
The Full Moon is in very close conjunction with the planet Neptune (the higher octave of the Moon, as well as the “ruler” of Pisces), intensifying its theme of love without martyrdom. As humanity awakens out of “old” Neptunian illusions of fear and victimhood, the “fog” clears and we become more open to the greatest lesson that Pisces has to offer: unconditional love and compassion.
Think about where you can give or receive more love in your life, where you can refrain from judging others negatively, where you can help someone in need, and always offer thanks for whatever is good in your life.
Pisces rules the feet, as well as the lymph system of the body; Virgo rules the stomach, digestive processes and brain chemistry. If your Sun or Moon is in the sign of Pisces (or its opposite sign Virgo), it is part of your soul signature to be of service in your own way. Healers, doctors, nurses, and health professions of all types fall under the rulership of Pisces/Virgo. Since the sign Pisces rules the unconscious and creative process of the right brain, many actors, musicians, artists, spiritual leaders, and scientists have Pisces planets prominent in their birth charts. Pisceans are very sensitive and emotional creatures, but they can also get “lost” in their own inner worlds. They are amazing healers and artists; however, they can become overloaded with emotional “stuff” from other people, as well as their own.
This Full Moon will highlight your “inner Muse”. This is a message from the Universe to pay more attention to the creative, emotional and spiritual aspects of your life now. If we do not recharge our psychic batteries, we run a very major risk of “psychic” infection.
If you have been feeling “out of it” or somewhat disconnected from reality over the past few days, you are not alone. The nature of Pisces is to have us become an “empty vessel”, letting go of guilt, blame and anything that holds us in darkness. During this Full Moon time, find positive ways to channel the Piscean energy: meditation, yoga, listening to music, watching a good film, having a massage, going to the beach, or just taking some “quiet time” to yourself. We cannot be of service to others, if we don’t pay attention to our own needs.
The Sun, Mars, Saturn and Pluto now form a very positive aspect (called a trine) in the earth signs of Virgo, and Capricorn respectively. This is good news for moving forward with practical ideas, and building a solid new foundation from the old.
The Sun and Saturn both provide form and structure with the details and organization, while Mars and Pluto provide the necessary strength and will-power to carry out our goals.
With the Moon and Neptune in Pisces opposing the Sun, it is important to meditate and ask for higher guidance, if any self-doubt or inner confusion seeps through the cracks.
Mercury and Venus are both at 29 degrees of Virgo (a critical degree) implying that we may feel an “urgency” in decision-making fueled by the Sun/Mars imperative (both also in Virgo). The Virgo lesson is one of discernment, not criticism; don’t tie yourself up in knots over details. We can all “overthink” issues with an over-emphasis of Virgo planets.
Once again, ask your guides for a dream, or meditate for inner guidance. If that doesn’t work, take a walk or exercise to break the mental pattern. All that Virgo energy loves physical activity, as well as doing something really good for body/mind, like massage, reflexology, aromatherapy, yoga, etc.
Pisces is the 12th and last sign of the zodiac and has been traditionally associated with Spiritual realms, as well as healing. In ancient Egypt, it was symbolized by the Egyptian God, Nefertum, the patron of aromatherapy and sacred oils. In Egyptian mythology, Nefertum was depicted as a lotus flower rising from the primal waters at the creation of the world. The science of aromatherapy or “scent alchemy” in ancient Egypt was a sacred art and intrinsic in magical ceremonies and ritual. The blue lotus is depicted on every temple and tomb signifying the codes for immortality. We know that scent opens up pathways in the brain associated with memories. Oils also carry electromagnetic frequency. Our brains get “amped up”, and new neuronal pathways open up. One of the best ways to release emotional overload is by aromatherapy massage. It stimulates cellular memory and releases toxins at the same time; a wonderful way to treat yourself during the Pisces Full Moon!
MEDITATION WITH EGYPTIAN GOD, NEFERTUM, GOD OF THE BLUE LOTUS:
Find a quiet and safe space to meditate; light a white candle. Take a few deep breaths, empty your mind, and relax. You are now ready to set your intention for healing and releasing old toxic emotions. Breathe deeply and feel yourself connecting from the deepest core of the planet to the heart of the Milky Way. Standing before you, you see a beautiful young man with a blue lotus flower opening on his 7th chakra. He is Nerfertum, the Egyptian god of the cosmic lotus, who rises every morning with the sun. Nefertum leads you to a lovely reflective pool filled with blue lotus flowers. Their fragrance uplifts your senses and opens your crown chakra. You notice that the flowers also emit a musical tone. As you hear this vibration, a code is unlocked within your DNA. You now feel a cosmic blue-white shaft of light beam from the Full Moon into your third eye. This beam grows and grows into spinning sun of diamond white light, which spins itself into to your Heart. Now, feel the diamond “sun” turn morph into a beautiful blue lotus, which opens in your heart. Imagine your entire body getting nourished from the nectar of this diamond sun and blue lotus flower. Take some time to feel this liquid light spread throughout your entire body. Ask your guides to help align you with your highest soul purpose during this time. Give thanks for all that you have seen and felt. You are now walking in the Light of your higher consciousness in peace and love.
