This full moon culminates on October 1st at 2:05 pm Pacific time in the sign of Pisces and the lunar house of Uttarabhadrapada.
The nights of September 30th and October 1st will be the time to see the moon at its fullest in the US.
Pisces is the inspirational, imaginative, creative sign of the zodiac, representing our subconscious mind and the ocean of wisdom.
It is connected with our intuition, and psychics and healers of all kinds, which makes this a great time for healing. This is also quite an introspective full moon, as Pisces is the sign of meditation and this moon is being aspected by Saturn. Saturn’s aspect on the mind can possibly tend us towards depression, but as the moon also gains strength while full, this interaction can simply bring us more into our contented singularness. The lunar house of this month’s full moon is Uttarabhadrapada, which is connected with spiritual fire and the kundalini energy, which can deepen the connection to meditation. Pisces moon can also give us the tendency to moodiness due to the deep feeling nature of this sign, so its best if we can rides the waves of mind and try to seek the balance, as always!
Directly opposite this moon is the Sun in Virgo.
As Virgo is connected with our intellect and organizational ability, this full moon is supportive of clear and logical thinking in conjunction with the intuitive nature of the Moon in Pisces.
After several months of being retrograde, Saturn is finally stationed direct in its own sign of Capricorn. Though Saturn can tend to bring pressures and obstacles, Saturn also rewards hard work and is asking us to put personal responsibility into the area of life that is represented in our charts by Capricorn. As Capricorn is the natural house of work, and Saturn is the planet of work, we are able to connect the balance of this analytical Sun and intuitive Moon into the area of what we do and how we want to channel our energy.
Our most unstable planet at the moment is Mars, which is retrograde and about to move backwards from Aries into Pisces. This is a critical junction of the zodiac, and as the planet of our assertive and aggressive energy is in a more vulnerable position over the next two weeks it is a good time to control our anger and take care of our nervous systems. Retrograde Mars will also cross paths with the Moon on October 3rd, making that a particular day to control our emotions.
The next new moon begins Navaratri, the nine nights of celebration of the Goddess. It is one of the most important festival times of the Vedic Calendar. More on that next time!
