Thoughts Are Boundless, Souls Are Free ~ Full Moon in Pisces- September 6th, 2017

In the early hours of September 6th, 2017 a Full Moon in Pisces will occur. This Full Moon in Pisces will be characterized by the element of water in its most oceanic manifestation, as the infinite abyss of swirling creation and destruction.

Every Full Moon represents the moment when the Sun and the Moon are exactly opposed. In the language of light, the reflexive gaze between the Moon in Pisces and the Sun in Virgo will communicate their relationship to one another as priestess and scribe.

In this case, it is the Moon in Pisces that serves as the interpreter of the Sun in Virgo’s light. Thus, this Full Moon will remain focused upon Virgo’s practices of purification. But where Virgo diagnoses and removes diseased matter with precise methods and tools, Pisces summons a great flood to dredge things up and wash them all back out to sea.  

Thus, depending on what you may have been repressing lately, a Full Moon in Pisces can be an overwhelming experience where all your emotions seem to rise up at once for cleansing and renewal. This often portends a delusional desire to escape, to leave the burdens of the material realm behind.

Boy look at you, looking at me

I know you know how I feel

Loving you is hard, being here is harder

All Full Moons represent moments of culmination and release. But this one on September 6th directly follows last month’s Solar Eclipse in Leo. Thus, you can imagine that there will be a heightened amount of gravitational pull upon the ocean tides of your inner world. The turbulent feelings summoned by the eclipse will be stirring, some swelling so big that they can no longer be contained.

These are waves that will carry you towards the highest highs and the lowest lows. You may feel elated by boundless love or cast aside by a riptide of hate. And it is likely that you will encounter some storms, where everything crashes together.

I don’t wanna do this anymore, it’s so surreal

I can’t survive if this is all that’s real

Whatever emotional waters you may be cast upon right now, know that the evolutionary purpose of Piscean transits is to bring you towards transcendence, dissolving poisonous attachments and obsessions back into their base elements. Thus, this is the time to soften and heal whatever the solar eclipse may have unleashed. Search your soul, acknowledging whatever despair and pent up rage you may still be harboring.

Now you’re just another one of my problems

Because you got out of hand

We won’t survive

we’re sinking into the sand

A Full Moon upon the axis of Virgo and Pisces sends out ripples of sensate intelligence and instinct. Thus, you will be led to contemplate the rhythms of nature’s cycles, the ecology that governs all growth.

With the Sun in Virgo opposed the Moon in Pisces, the process of purification and distillation is the primary focus.  In light of this, allow your emotions to be purified like the ocean: rising, crashing, and returning to the waters in a dispersion of mist.

I don’t wanna do this anymore, it’s so surreal

I can’t survive if this is all that’s real

The true nature of this Full Moon in Pisces is best defined by the Moon’s conjunction with Neptune, a planetary potion best used for musing and reverie. When the intuitive and emotional Moon passes through the mystical haze of Neptune, a pall of surreality will descend. When the lunar realms of the subconscious become fully illuminated, expect life to take on the ambiance of a waking dream, with evocative symbols and synchronicities all woven together by echoes of remembrance.

All I wanna do is get high by the beach

Get high by the beach get high

In an opposition to Neptune, the Sun in Virgo’s focus will become diffused, making sobriety and reason more of a struggle to connect with. Under this ambient lighting, your sense of self will become prismatic, refracting into a dazzling spectrum of dancing colors.

All I wanna do is get by by the beach

Get by baby, baby, bye bye

In the Neptunian realms, swirling vapors entice your imaginative senses to grow, transporting you to isles of ecstasy and bliss. And at this time of year, in the throes of melancholy or frustration at summer’s end, this Neptunian influence will represent the height of seduction, luring you to follow the mysteries that glow dimly from beneath the waters. On that journey of revelation, let this Full Moon in Pisces embrace you, whispering promises of pleasure and release.

‘Cause I know that

All I wanted to do was get high by the beach

When indulging in Neptunian bliss, the dangerous line between creative imagination and destructive delusion must be danced upon. But to willingly lie down in a womb of enchantment is a necessary part of your healing and growth.

Don’t need your money, money

To get me what I want


All I wanna do is get high by the beach

There could be nothing more transcendent at a Neptunian Moon in Pisces than to spend time luxuriating at the ocean, getting high by the beach on the shoreline between spirit and matter. So in honor of summer’s end and your own healing, at this Full Moon take some time to actually visit the ocean.

If it is not possible to visit the ocean, you may still summon the mythic image of infinite water into your meditations. There within its hidden depths lies the womb of creation. And there upon its shining surface, the beauty and majesty of nature finds its true reflection.

At this Full Moon in Pisces, remember that the awe that you have for the ocean as an image of eternity is the same awe that you may have for your own eternal soul.

O’er the dark waters of the deep blue sea

Our thoughts are boundless, and our souls are free…
