Full Moon in Pisces September 2021

The Full Moon occurs at 00:54 (BST) on September 21, 2021 at 28°Pi13′. Pisces, the last of the signs – the beginning and the end, above and below. This sign is symbolised by two fish swimming in different directions yet connected. Pisces represents that which connects us all, the invisible thread linking atom to atom. Pisces is also life beyond death, life after life, the cosmic round.

At Pisces Full Moon, boundaries are blurred, the mystical and the magical come to life, especially as this lunation conjoins ruler Neptune. Can you feel it in the air? It’s natural to retreat, to step back, to embrace silence or quiet music. For some, this is a time of spiritual uplift, communing with deity, epic dreams. Others may cry, sob for what was once lost or never found. This is a Moon of release and surrender. If the waters are muddied, it can be a time of deep regret, giving in, even victim consciousness.

This Full Moon may be a culmination of events that began back in March when we had the New Moon in Pisces. This is a soft, watery, malleable sign. Everything is shifting and changing, ebbing and flowing. The locomotive shaped chart, lead by the Sun, suggests we’re driven by a search for ourselves. Underneath the hush of waves is a constant refrain…

Who am I? Who am I? Who am I?

We’re lost, floundering in the ocean, unsure of where we are going. The opposing Sun in Virgo tells us that we want to feel of use. We tinker with tasks, pick at problems. But we’re riding an emotional high tide with Lord Neptune carrying us on his chariot. White horses kick and whinny, frothing hooves slashing at the peaceful escape we long for.

But we can’t escape. The Virgo Sun keeps us with at least one foot in reality – even if the bottle or the bed looks inviting. Instead of struggling against the tide, we can surrender, float, see where the universe takes us. It may help to do a check in, figure out what belongs to us and what doesn’t. Psychic receptivity is acute and it’s hard to know where we end, and another begins. Make time for relaxation, sleep, meditation, artistic pursuits. Attend to boundaries.

Pisces is connected to peace. Pisces is the monk walking the cloisters or sitting high on a mountain. Pisces is the space between breaths. Listen to your breath. Essentially this Moon reminds us that we all come from the same source, whether the primordial soup or Spirit.


I recorded a 34mins global Astro-tarot reading over on my Patreon where I discussed the aspect of the Full Moon in depth, asteroids Hygeia, Alma, Charybdis, Nyx and Nephthys in connection to the Full Moon chart along with the Sabian symbol. The recording also has a transcript for those who prefer to read rather than listen. Click here to join my Patreon and access the Full Moon post.
