The Full Moon occurs at 06:21 (BST) on September 2, 2020 at 10°Pi12′.
The Moon is in Pisces, soft, watery, all encompassing. We’re drifting on the ocean, clouds and stars reflected on the surface. It’s hard to tell where the sea ends and the sky begins. In Pisces, there are no barriers or boundaries. In this place, we are at one with all that it, egoless, merged, indistinguishable from everything else. It’s a beautiful experience but with the Sun in practical Virgo – a sign that is here to help, efficient and business like – this woozy atmosphere could manifest as feeling confused, defeated, uncertain, weak, helpless. The perfect plans evaporate, time slips – in fact, there is no time here. It’s endless, forever, the vastness of eternity.
In Virgo, we work hard – chop wood, carry water. We do what needs to be done – clean teeth, pack lunch, wash the dishes, feed the kids. We tinker, adjust, make do and mend. But sometimes in the midst of a boring commute or vacuuming the living room, we catch sight of something else. In that moment, maybe we realise that we lost the thread, we lost the meaning of why we’re doing, what we’re doing.
And so, at the Pisces Full Moon, we have a chance to reassess and rebalance. As we are tugged by the undercurrent, we can only move with the tide, surrender, allow ourselves to be lost so that we can be found. As Neptune, the ruler of this lunation, opposes Mercury, we can’t think our way through this or out of this. A concurrent Venus-Neptune trine tells us that it is through the heart that we find our way. Have compassion. Send out waves of love. With the Moon widely conjunct Ceres, Goddess of the Grain, it’s time to feed the soul.
The Moon sits on the midpoint of a Uranus-Pallas trine and the Sun will perfect a trine to Uranus on the same day as the Full Moon. If we allow ourselves to rest and make space for the cosmic, we create a corridor of communion. Uranus and Pallas gift us with higher perception, wisdom, flashes of insight, sudden knowing. Uranus reminds us that maybe there is a different way of being.
The Sabian symbol of this lunation is ‘Men Travelling A Narrow Path, Seeking Illumination‘. We are searching for meaning. Sometimes we have to shut out the distractions, mixed messages, stories of disaster and sorrow. Visualise travelling a path of light that falls on water from the moonlight above. In this place, you can be anyone or anything. Higher beings stand ready to open the door to your unconscious and the collective unconscious beyond. Breathe. Meditate, Dream. Imagine. Everything is connected.
I recorded an astro-tarot reading for this lunation over on my Patreon where I also discussed the various aspect patterns in this chart (Thor’s Hammer, Grand Cross) along with the asteroids Nocturna, Johanna and Klotho.
