On Monday, September 8th at 9:38 pm EST/6:38 pm PST, the Moon will be exactly full in the mystical, magical constellation of Pisces. This is the sign of intuition and imagination — the stuff your dreams are made of.
But we’re not just talking about the kind of dreams you have when you rest your head on your pillow at night — we’re also talking fantasy. Daydreams are rampant right now, and you might find yourself whiling away the day lost in your thoughts. Translation: it may be really hard to concentrate early this week.
This Full Moon is the third and final Supermoon of the summer. Just like the Full Moon in Aquarius in August and the Full Moon in Capricorn that fell in July, the current lunation is as powerful as ten Full Moons — it has the energetic intensity of an eclipse.
The Full Moon in Pisces begs you to loosen your grip and relax into your intuitive, expressive, artistic self. Pisces is in charge of compassion and your connection to the oneness of the universe — having an open heart is essential at this moment. Because this lunation connects to both Chiron, known as the “wounded healer,” and Saturn, the planet of challenges, there might be a few important lessons to learn now — probably about trusting your instincts and honoring your need for spirit.
If you can spend some time near a body of water near this Full Moon, you’ll truly feel its unlimited healing potential. If you live near a body of water — a lake, ocean, river or brook, go sit by it sometime this week, to commune with the water element. (Pisces, like Cancer and Scorpio, is a water sign.) If you can’t get to a body of water, make sure to stay hydrated and consider taking a bath on Monday evening — pour in Epsom salts and essential oils for the full spa experience. Another way to honor Pisces is to get a pedicure — Pisces rules the feet. Or go dancing — or just dance around your living room. You might even consider dancing outside — underneath that gorgeous, huge, magical Moon.
Back to dreams for a moment: consider keeping a pad and pen by your bed, because the images, ideas, and psychic visions you have while asleep may be astounding — pay close attention to those messages now.
Reality may not make much of an impact on you while the Full Moon in Pisces energy is active — but don’t fight it. Go with the easy flow and let dreamtime take over.
