"Some of us think holding on makes us strong; but sometimes it is letting go." ~ Hermann Hesse
This month's Full Moon is on Wednesday, September 2nd at 1:23 am (EDT) at 10º 12' of Pisces, opposite the Sun in Virgo. The Moon is at the helm of this Full Moon's energy here on the East Coast. She is asking us to ride the tides, go with the flow and honor our voices and emotions. The tension between the Sun and the Moon, Virgo and Pisces, is control versus surrender. I chose the Two of Swords to represent the energy of this Full Moon since tensions are running high, information is on overdrive and we can all become prisoners of our own minds unless we remember to surrender. If we let go of the swords, whatever they symbolize for you, then we are free to see, to feel, to show love. Trust what is going on beneath the surface, trust your intuition and connection to Source and trust in the unknown. The energy from the New Moon in Pisces (2/23) is culminating and light is now shining upon much of what was unseen during that time.
Reflect on what was happening for you 6 months ago, and see what has culminated.
Under the energy of this Full Moon, rest, go deep, replenish and release with gratitude.
Remember that on a Soul level, we are all still connected.
Full Moon in Pisces Astrological Aromatherapy Blend
The Astrological Aromatherapy Pisces Full Moon blend:
Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) (Virgo)
Melissa or Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis) (Pisces)
Basil Sweet (Ocimum basilicum)
I have been diffusing it and love it. The Lavender and Melissa are so soothing. The blend has been curated to the energy of this Full Moon.
There's still time to purchase the stock blend! Order it here.
Practicing trusting the unknown and your intuition, finding your center and surrendering will be very important skills to hone for the upcoming months. Mars will be starting its two month retrograde next week (I have some fun musings about that coming soon), the final Mercury retrograde of this year will be for the three weeks just before Election Day (the last time this happened was in 2000 - remember the hanging chads and delayed results?) and we'll be in the energy of Mars squaring the planets in Capricorn (Saturn, Pluto and Jupiter) for the remainder of this year and into early 2021. Find your inner peace and know how to return to it when it's needed. There are many battles afoot and heroes need their focus. Carry forward the individuation and eccentricities of last month's Aquarius Full Moon!
Full Moon Blessings!
