When the Moon is Full it dominates the sky. Fertility, growth, emotions and memory are all Moon related issues. The seeds we plant bare fruit, the thoughts we have bare fruit, and the emotions we have bare fruit. We plant for growth right after the Moon is New and the Full Moon brings the results or in this same theme the fruit. There is a New Moon every 29.6 days so we have ample time to sow new seeds. At the Full Moon you bring things to completion and enjoy the results or you release the tension of whatever has built up. Each lunation cycle focuses on a different sign and house in your chart. The New Moon on August 25, 2014 in Virgo helped us get in touch with the things that need to be done. The to-do list! That New Moon in Virgo got us on track with our lives and routines. It was in opposition to Neptune giving us faith and inspiration. Maybe even overwhelm as we realize what we need to get hold of and what we have to let go. This Full Moon brings those issues to the table because it is in Pisces allowing us to aspire to greater heights. This Full Moon gives us the opportunity to process and let go of grief and pain that has been stored up. It is time to let go of addictions and escapism and get busy. You will never know until you step into a new routine what amazing things you can accomplish. THE FULL MOON, TIME OF RELEASE, IS SEPTEMBER 08, 2014 9:38 PM EDT 16 PISCES 19 MINUTES
Pisces is where total commitment must be made to proceed with what, until now, has been only a vision, but, what could eventually become a reality. In Pisces, you are encouraged to walk into the unknown even though there is no proof that what you seek could, or ever will, exist. The experiences met in the house of Pisces are often considered to be “karmic” in the sense that you are confronted with your past. The power of positive thinking, psychic abilities, unselfish love, and a willingness to help when help is needed, even if personal sacrifices must sometimes be made. Idealistic, spiritual, sensitive, giving, compassionate are all attributes of Pisces. Escapism, fearful, and unrealistic tendencies should be avoided.
Each sign contains thirty degrees of the Zodiac. Each sign is divided into three sections of 10 degrees called Decanates. This Full Moon is in the Cancer decanate of Pisces. The subconscious, the emotions, and instinctual behavior. Intense emotion and great sensitivity. This sign connects us with the past, our roots, family, and the way we were raised. This is the most fertile sign of the zodiac. Time to nurture, protect, and care for the things that we want to bring forth now.
Each sign is divided into two and a half degree sections called dwads. This Full Moon is taking place in the Virgo dwad of Pisces. Virgo is the sign that filters and sorts out what works and what doesn’t. This is also the sign that enjoys fixing things. Organization and routine is important. Taking care of endless details and routine jobs is the mantra of Virgo. This is the sign of humble service and patience. The experiences attracted in the Virgo house will make you aware of what needs your attention.
The rulers of this Full Moon are Jupiter and Neptune because they rule Pisces. The Moon because it rules Cancer the decanate of Pisces and Mercury the ruler of Virgo the dwad of Pisces. At the time of this Full Moon, Jupiter is in Leo. This opens our heart chakra and our creative energy. Neptune is at home in its own sign helping with inspiration. Mercury is in Libra in mutual reception with Venus in Virgo. We are able to work on and bring to life what we want. The Moon, of course, is in Pisces keeping company with Chiron and Neptune. This brings an opportunity to break and heal old patterns. We can fix things now by allowing the movement to carry us to successful change.
THE SABIAN SYMBOL: AN EASTER PARADE This is a symbol of that constant expansion of self and experience which characterizes reality on its conscious levels, emphasized here on the side of humanity's utterly individualistic self-expression. Implicit in all the ridiculous extremes of man's vanity and self-exhibition is a realization that each least manifestation of his personal excellencies must be shared widely and generously as the basic condition of their development. A human society exists only as one person is able to dramatize himself satisfactorily to all. The keyword is CELEBRATION. When positive, the degree is tireless self-refinement in an effective inspiration of others, and when negative, a craving for attention. “Sabian Symbols” Marc Edmund Jones.
