Today we welcome a full moon in Pisces. This transit asks for us to consider our capacity for great transformation around how we think about and process our feelings and needs. Revelations, insights, and big feelings will come through with greater ease - this energy can be supportive, but it can also be overwhelming. Thankfully, we have a grand trine with the Sun, Uranus, and Jupiter, which will bring a stabilizing energy to these insights. The moon is also sextile Uranus, bringing potential for erratic feelings, especially around stability and what is happening in the physical world - e.g. money, our homes, our bodies, etc. But use this energy for creativity and for unabashedly owning your big ideas and wild dreams. Let your freak flag fly, as they say.
The Moon usually features some of the trippiest imagery in the tarot.
Pisces rules the tarot card The Moon. The Moon is one of the Moving through The Moon during times of uncertainty. The Moon asks for us to let go. The Moon is not something that we intellectualize. It is something we move through. Just like working with our intuition. It’s something that we become available for, not force. It asks us to show up with vulnerability and curiosity. It is a shadowy realm, yes, but our shadows are not our enemies. Shadow is a place to be held. To safely set down our burdens. We are held in shadow for 9 months (give or take) in the womb. And when a child is in the womb, every precaution is taken. Every sensitivity is accounted for. And so we must do the same when we pass through shadow. Ramp up your energetic and psychic protection during this time, not from a place of fear, but because we know we are worthy of this attention and care - use it as a form of of self-care, affirmation, and tenderness for yourself. Boundaries are an act of love.
From what I wrote last year on the blog about the full moon in Pisces: "This full moon in Pisces reminds us that there is no separation between the celestial and the human. That we are too part of the cosmos. That we travel on a galactic journey of wonder and awakening. And it is our humanity that is the gateway to our magic. Indeed, embodiment is not a curse or punishment put upon us. It is a choice to awaken and evolve through our human communion with Spirit.” This year’s full moon is both grounding and revelatory. There is great potential for us to unlock something truly special with this moon cycle. So let the ritual and magic begin!
