On September 6, 2017, life takes a turn for the esoteric and enchanted when the Pisces full moon lights up the skies. As the zodiac’s last sign, Pisces is about endings and transitions, upping the odds that we'll see lingering situations start reaching a conclusion. Full moons are a powerful time to let go, and with the Pisces emphasis on surrender, we're invited to give up struggle. There's power to be found in waving the white flag and accepting the things we cannot change.
Pisces rules the subconscious mind. If you've been soul-searching or asking the universe for answers, expect to have some violet-light realizations near this full moon. This full moon is the culmination of the February 26 Pisces solar (new moon) eclipse, which also wrapped up a two-year cycle of eclipses in this mystical sign. Today's epiphanies may involve relinquishing control or literally saying goodbye to something that no longer serves a purpose. Have you put off mourning a loss or grieving something that didn't work out as you hoped? The soothing Pisces full moon helps the tears or stuck emotions flow.
For those who like to plan every move to the minute detail, the Pisces full moon may have the last laugh. Instead of attempting to direct the universe, pay attention to which doors are opening and which seem impossible to pry ajar—no matter how hard you try. Miracles CAN happen the minute we release our grip and accept that what will be, will be. Caveat: Pisces energy can send people spiraling into addictive, self-destructive, and downright delusional behavior—especially when "loony" luna is full! Steer clear of triggers and temptations at this full moon to avoid the slippery slope.
Make room for the muse! The creative Pisces full moon will deliver some divine downloads. If you've been developing a visionary idea, share it with trusted people—one of them could turn out to be a winner! But consider having people sign an NDA (nondisclosure agreement) if there are trade secrets or important artistic/intellectual properties involved. The blurring effect of Pisces could mask a competitor in ally's clothing. Yikes! Socially, this would be the day to dive into Piscean activities: an epic night of dancing, a meditation circle, a spiritual ceremony, or a romantic date lifted straight from the pages of a fairy tale.
The Pisces full moon is also recognized by the Farmer's Almanac as the Full Corn Moon or Full Barley Moon because it traditionally corresponds with the time of these harvests. And since it falls close to the autumnal equinox on September 22, it is also considered the full Harvest Moon.
