Full Moon in Pisces - Sept 1-2, 2020 10:23 PM PT // 12:23 AM CT // 1:23 AM ET
This Full Moon, as we know, is a time of celebration, reflection, and completion. It's a time for self-love and appreciation. It's a moment of gratitude for all of the things we've been given, have earned, and have worked hard to create since the New Moon. The Full Moon helps illuminate the truth in our lives, expand our ways of thinking, and clear any remaining fog on our path.
This cycle, our Full Moon is in the sign of Pisces. The Sun and Moon oppose one another at the full moon, so we're looking at a Virgo vs. Pisces opposition. Finite, concrete reality vs. Infinite, intuitive ether. The energy of Pisces may have us in a dark, murky, and emotional headspace (stuck in ALL the feels,) but thankfully the practical energy of Virgo should help us to stay grounded in reality, even if it feels like we have to fight to keep our grasp on logical thinking.
Pisces has come to remind us to consider our spiritual and emotional states. If they've been left by the wayside recently, this is your opportunity to release any negative habits around your spiritual and emotional hygiene practices (or lack thereof!) We're being called to find balance in our lives right now between the energies of Virgo and Pisces. This means finding ways to identify and express your spiritual/emotional needs while maintaining order and progress in your everyday lives. If one of these energies is unbalanced in your lives, you'll know it when you see it: it's either excessive orderliness or chaos.
Full Moon in Aquarius - August 3rd, 2020 8:58 AM PT // 11:58 AM ET // 10:58 AM CT
This Full Moon, as we know, is a time of celebration, reflection, and completion. It’s a time for self-love and appreciation for all the things we’ve been given, have earned, and have worked hard to create since the beginning of the cycle during the New Moon. Also, the Full Moon helps illuminate the truth in our lives, expand our ways of thinking, and clear any remaining fog on our path.
This cycle, our Full Moon is in the sign of Aquarius. A Full Moon occurs when the Sun is in opposition to the moon. In this case, the Sun is in Leo. The Leo Sun is intensely individual and proud. Leo is definitely not about being part of the team or focusing on communal growth. The Aquarius Moon -- while also quite individualistic and values independence -- heavily values teams, groups, and the collective. The Full Moon illuminates this emotional conflict for us in our lives, and where in our charts we have Leo and Aquarius influences.
As a reminder, the July 20th New Moon in Cancer was opposite Saturn, which may have caused some restrictions and even hardship over the last couple of weeks in pursuing your goals. A serious attitude and hard work were needed, as well as deep focus, determination, and persistence. This Full Moon in Aquarius is square Uranus. This energy will likely bring us unexpected changes that could be emotionally upsetting or cause our lives to feel unsteady. Keeping an open mind and fully surrendering to this universal shake-up will help you adapt to the changes more quickly, plus keep you open to new or exciting opportunities that now have the space to manifest in your life. In addition, Mercury opposition Saturn, which happens simultaneously with the Full Moon, makes the changes caused by this Uranus aspect a little more challenging to deal with. You’re being called at this time to have deep patience and a positive attitude as much as possible.
The moon becomes full in the sign of Capricorn at 13 degrees, at 9:44 PM PT/July 5, 2020 12:44 AM ET/July 4, 2020 11:44 PM CT.
As we may very well know, the Full Moon is a time of celebration, reflection, and completion. It’s a time for self-love and appreciation for all the things we’ve been given, have earned, and have worked hard to create since the beginning of the cycle during the New Moon.
And, since the start of June, we have been walking through the Eclipse Gateway *cue mystical sound effects*
During this time, we’ve been shown flickers of a new reality. We’ve been shown what needs to be released, not just from within ourselves, but from the planet and society as a whole. This is the work we’ve been tasked with to make this new reality, well, reality.
A lunar eclipse asks us to look inward, whereas solar eclipses represent external events. While a lot of what us happening is taking place on a public stage, real change will only happen when we take an honest look at our own hearts, minds, beliefs and actions. This eclipse urges us to ask ourselves where we have fallen short and where we can do better to promote justice for all.
New moons represent beginnings. Full moons ask us to reflect on where we are and to refine our paths. This is a powerful moment in time and it is ours for the taking.
