R E – A D A P T I N G – Full Moon in Pisces

Art: Paulina Kwietniewska

The Full Moon in Pisces is happening on the 14th of September 2019 at 6:33 AM CEST (or 13th of September 2019 at 11:33 PM EST). It shines upon times of higher sensitivity, unstable and changeable environment, and a heavy period of change and transition. We see it in the material world, as we are also transitioning towards the dark and cold months with the Autumn Equinox on the 23rd of September.


We see the water and earth elements manifesting their opposing qualities during these days, as life events force us to change or adapt our emotional (and mental) strength. However, the triggers might be challenging, difficult to assimilate, hard to assess, and an overall cloud of confusion can take over.


The Sun has the lead in Virgo, together with Mars in conjunction, and Venus-Mercury at the last degree of Virgo. On the other hand, we have the Moon over Pisces together with Pisces’s modern ruler, Neptune.


The Virgo energy invites us to change what needs to be changed, polish, cleanse and repair. Attention to details is very important. The careful analysis of the environment we are operating in, as well of our own physical machinery: our body. Virgo makes us want to fix what needs to be fixed and heal what needs to be healed. These can be days of intense focus on ourselves, wanting to improve areas of our lives in need for a positive change.


For example, some of us will be focused on improving our physical health, our performance at work, or our contribution in our relationships. Some of us will be dedicating more time and effort in general. Some of us will be more alert to the struggle of the other and try to be of help. In any case, we are all trying to do the right thing.


But at the same time, the energy of Virgo is unstable and sometimes it can be conflicted. A strong focus on details, and details which are not necessary, can create mental instability followed by emotional unease and health detriment. And with such a powerful concentration of personal planets in Virgo at the moment, we got to watch out of not falling into that trap.


At the same time, in terms of evolutionary terms, sometimes the universe gives us a little help (which might not seem at all like help).


Virgo is a sign that is related to necessary periods of crises. What happens is that sometimes, difficult situations outside of our control can manifest and complicate things. A necessary crisis to bring into manifestation an important evolutionary step in our lives. This can be particularly relevant at the moment with the lords of karma and transformation, Saturn and Pluto, in Capricorn.

In addition, with the Moon in her full phase together with Neptune, the lord of the waters, in Pisces, for some people it might mean living chaotic days. For some other people it can mean times of instability or confusion, especially regarding to unrecognised emotions.


Nevertheless, for you my reader, the life voyager, travelling along the life path living different moments, learning different lessons, discovering new truths, open and receptive, this can be a very insightful period of discovery in all planes: mental, emotional and physical. As the Moon in Pisces shines her revelations, and our head is clear and open for receiving, we can understand many things that we previously didn’t.


Jupiter in Sagittarius is at the head of a t-square between Virgo (earth) and Pisces (water). Sagittarius is fire, and Jupiter here acts as the vehicle for bringing together the possible material manifestations and the emotional tumult into one whole true revelation, truth, assimilation, or understanding.


The key is to remain receptive and still. The piscean waters move wildly, but we remain still and calm. The situations from these days can challenge us, but we remain open and flexible to adapt and change. As we kindly and softly let go, little by little, one by one, of our expectations and high standards; as we slowly and consciously begin to loosen up, we are able to see not just an image, but a clearer picture. As long as we are willing to discover what lies beyond our perceptions, we can utilise these days for maximum growth and wisdom.

Elements: earth (physical manifestation) and water (emotions)
Modality: mutable (changing)
Keywords: loosening up, re-adapting, seeing the truth
A good quote: “No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new doorway for the human spirit” – Hellen Keller
