Full Moon in Pisces

Full Moon in Pisces




The evening of August 30th we have the pleasure of gazing to the stars to observe a beautiful Blue Moon in the sign of Pisces. Pisces is associated with empathy, intuition, spiritual connection, and as the final sign of the zodiac; a sense of completion. The Moon itself signifying our inner-most selves, emotions, and cycles;  combined with the influence of the sign of the fish, will swrve to intensify these themes creating a symphony of intuituon and emotion. We are urged to delve into our subconscious, explore our dreams and tap into our intuition for guidance. 

This lunation's arrival during practical and analytical Virgo season, serves as a counterbalance to the emotional tides.This combination stirs a complex blend of energy that encourages introspection and self-care, nudging us toward a greater understanding of our inner emotional and spiritual landscape while also promoting practical steps for personal growth and wellness. 

Adding to this celestial ballet, no less than six planets - Pluto, Venus, Saturn, Mercury, and Uranus - are currently in retrograde. Retrograde periods, when a planet appears to move backwards in its orbit from our perspective on Earth, are often associated with introspection and a slowing down of progress.The Celestial stage is set to drive home a message to pause and reflect, delve deeper and really reflect on our current life path; through a symbolic, emotional, and spiritual lense. 

Pluto's retrograde deepens our need for transformation and rebirth, while Venus in retrograde pushes us to reevaluate our relationships and values. Saturn retrograde has us revisit our duties and responsibilities, as Mercury, the planet of communication, in retrograde may lead to misunderstandings and require us to pay extra attention to our words and thoughts. Lastly, Uranus in retrograde sparks a desire for change, freedom, and rebellion against the status quo.

As we observe this celestial event, let's remember that the harmony in the cosmos serves as a mirror to the harmony we seek in our lives. Make the most of this opportunity to deep dive, reflect, reset as we prepare to transition from summer to fall.  It's a cosmic invitation.
