I’ve started to feel the energies of the Pisces Full Moon coming up on September 9th – this is not unusual as it is a SuperMoon (intensity is felt +/- 7 days). Its energies will of course set the backdrop for our co-ordinated prayers, so it is a useful energy to also take into account.
Pisces’ energies are linked with the astrological 12th house. They speak of endings, termination, culmination, and represent the completion of a cycle – before we start again with Aries.
The 12th house, linked with Pisces and the planet Neptune, is also connected with suffering, sacrifice, martyrdom, issues with psychic boundaries (that can manifest in attitudes of narcissism, codependency), the dissolution of form (which when interpreted ‘negatively’ can be read as an invitation to ‘losing the self’ often through substance abuse of some kind). Pisces in excess has also be linked with attempts at self-harm, or even self-termination.
(Don’t be scared, these are just some of the more …. harsher forms of its manifestation – not everyone will want to manifest the energy in this way, but if you do have tendencies – make sure your support group is close at hand – focus on self-nurture as much as possible).
In its more ‘positive’ manifestations, Pisces is linked with the energy of Christ Consciousness. It is that ability to truly sacrifice the self (not from Ego, but from Love). Too many perpetuate ego-serving behaviors in the same of loving sacrifice, so it’s really important to make the difference clear. It is that ability to ‘turn the other cheek’, to forgive, to heal, and ultimately to transcend.
The 12th house is also associated with secrets, and energetic portals or vibrations which ‘you just can’t put your finger on’. It is linked with the otherworldly. Shaman/kas and those that take Spiritual Journeys will be feeling the pull to traverse the worlds at this time.
It is also a deeply karmic house, associated with linkages from the past that are not immediately obvious – if there was a guiding principle to Pisces – it would be obscurity, or that which is not obvious…. If karmic connections re-enter your life at this time, it is very likely that they do so because you are being given the opportunity to heal, transcend and release yourself from certain karmic patterns.
Note that this Full Moon will also feature the Moon conjunct Chiron in Pisces. Chiron is the Soul Healer, or the Soul’s Wound. There is going to be an intense emphasis on the notion of ‘transcendence through suffering’, or ‘learning from the pain/wounding’.
I’ll write more about this Full Moon in the Days to come. But I wanted to give you a heads up as this vibration has been making itself very very known to me at this time. We’re going to be collectively re-membering ‘the past’ and being called to make our peace with it.
Perfect for the energy-grounding/anchoring work we plan to do on the 13th.
