The full moon this month falls on September 12, in Pisces, a water sign.
The moon symbolizes our inner lives, our emotions, our capacity to nurture others and self, and it usually represents your nurturing parent. Full moons typically signal a culmination point, a harvest, a completion of something. With this moon in Pisces, certain qualities are emphasized: imagination, intuition, dreams, indecision. Your head wants to do one thing, your heart another.
Jupiter, the planet of expansion and luck, forms a wide, beneficial angle to this moon. The indication is that whatever you feel may be greatly exaggerated by the moon's contact with Jupiter. Instead of waking up feeling good, you wake up feeling ecstatic, so it's a great time to do some visualization and back it with powerful emotion.
Mars, symbolic of our aggression and ambition, sexuality and physicality, is in water sign Cancer and also forms a beneficial angle to this moon. This angle may indicate a lot of emotional activity that drives you forward during the day. Hmm: drama? There could be plenty of that. You or people around you may be acting out. Shrug it off. This, too, shall pass.
Water signs - Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio - will be most affected by this full moon. However, we all have Pisces somewhere in our natal charts, so be sure to check your chart to see where Pisces falls.If it's on the cusp of your second house, for instance, then your financial area will feel the impact. Earth signs will be impacted as well - Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn, and in a positive way. However, Pisces is opposed to Virgo, so it could be a bit of a dicey days for Virgos. On the other hand, it may be just what you Virgos need, a dreamy day to kick back and chill.
Some other dates to note for this month:
September 3 could be one of the luckiest days all year. Jupiter and the sun are in cahoots and that means expansion and good things for all of us. Even though Jupiter is retrograde for the entire month, it's not as big a deal as Mercury retrograde. For Virgos in particular and earth and water signs generally, you'll enjoy this day immensely.
September 16 features a change in signs for Venus, symbolic of love and romance, money, the finger things in life! It moves from Virgo to Libra, which benefits air signs - Gemini, Libra, Aquarius - and fire signs - Aries, Leo, Sagittarius. It remains there till October 9. So, all you air and fire signs, love the one you're with and be with the one you love.
On September 17, Pluto turns direct in Capricorn after many months of being retrograde. Pluto rules water sign Scorpio, so for you folks, that's good news. Well, it's actually good news for all of us. Things really drag when Pluto isn't functioning at optimal capacity. Maybe the politicians will finally get their acts together and pass legislation that actually helps, you know, we the people.
That trickster, Mercury, which rules communication, travel, your conscious mind,occupies three signs this month. It's now moving in direct motion, a relief, and when it changes signs, our communication skills also change. It begins the month in fire sign Leo, so you may be communicating in a more flamboyant fashion. On September 9, Mercury enters Virgo. This transit suggests a more discerning, intellectual approach in your communications. Details are important. You may be more health conscious. On September 25, Mercury enters Libra, a more gregarious, people-oriented sign. Your communications take on a lighter approach, you network more.
Mars enters Leo on September 18, a transit all you fire signs and air signs will enjoy. You'll feel energized physically, enthusiastic about whatever you're involved in, and will be ready to strut your stuff.
We'll cover the new moon in Libra on September 27 in a separate post. That's going to be a rock 'n rolling day!
