We start the month with a potent Full Corn Moon in Pisces: this cosmic event is happening at 10°11’ of the sign of the Fish, and it’s arriving on September 2, at 1:21 AM EST.
Full Moons are the peak phase of the entire lunar cycle: they bring completion and breakthroughs: they represent the culmination of our efforts, the moment when we finally get to see the results of what we have been working on.
The Full Moon of September has been traditionally called Corn Moon or Harvest Moon. The Harvest Moon is the Full Moon nearest to the Autumn Equinox, which takes place on September 22 or 23. In 2020, the Harvest Moon is happening on October 1, and on September 2 we are celebrating the Corn Moon.
Corn was the most essential staple food for Native Americans, and it still represents the foundation of many people’s diets nowadays. At this time of the year, in the Northern Hemisphere, corn is almost ready for harvest: monitoring the last phases of growth is extremely important, as harvesting it too early or too late can compromise its quality
Corn is traditionally associated with fertility and abundance: the Full Corn Moon has been celebrated for thousands of years as a symbol of prosperity and wealth. This cosmic event reminds us to honor the abundance in our lives, to be thankful for what we have, and don’t take anything for granted.
Pisces: Liminality and Ambiguity
Pisces is a Yin, Water, and Mutable archetype: natives of this sign tend to be extremely adaptable, sensitive, and empathic. The last archetype of the Zodiac represents the alpha and the omega, the beginning and the end. It correlates to the time we spend in our mother’s womb and to the cosmic womb where we all belong. Pisces represents a space where we are taken care of, where we can be completely passive and receptive, where no effort is needed because everything is already provided.
The Full Moon in Pisces can easily bring up feelings of disorientation: Pisces relates to everything that exists in the three-dimensional reality, everything that exists in other planes, everything we can dream of, and create in our imagination. The sign of the Fish is related to the totality of life: it corresponds to oneness, to a state of non-duality.
This Full Moon opens the portal to a liminal space where everything is true, and its opposite is also true. The astrological symbol of Pisces is composed of two fish swimming in opposite directions: another indication of ambiguity and unity in duality. For these reasons, Pisces correlates with transcendence from worldly concerns and daydreaming, but also with illusions, delusions, deception, chaos, and confusion.
Full Moon in Pisces Opposes Sun in Virgo: Unity and Harmony between Body and Soul
On September 2, the Sun in Virgo opposes the Moon in Pisces, emphasizing the need to find unity and harmony between our body and our Soul. While Virgo is the sign related to our physical body, our lifestyle, and our health, Pisces correlates to our connection with subtle energies, spirituality, and Source.
During the Age of Pisces, now coming to an end, many religious traditions propagated the idea of separation between flesh and Spirit. This doctrine implies the necessity to avoid physical pleasures to be considered pure and worthy and to be allowed to have a connection to God. Before entering the Age of Aquarius, we need to heal dysfunctions that have been in place for a millennia, reclaiming the natural union of body and soul, flesh and Spirit.
Many of us have been moving towards holistic healing and practices like Yoga, that allow us to develop an integrated view of physical health and spiritual health, and to come back to unity and harmony. More and more people have also been exploring the sacred dimension of sexuality, working towards letting go of feelings of guilt linked to enjoying our bodies and our senses.
The Full Moon in Pisces opposite the Sun in Virgo reminds us to take good care of both our body and our soul: there can’t be real physical health without emotional and spiritual health, and vice versa.
Neptune Retrograde & Full Moon in Pisces: Feeling Collective Pain
Neptune, the planet of mysticism, compassion, and unconditional love is the ruler of the Full Moon and he is currently retrograde, also in the sign of Pisces.
This emphasizes our need for introspection, solitude, and retreat from the demands of the outer world. With so much intensity and tension around us, having ways to ground and stabilize our emotional state before taking action becomes crucial.
Both Neptune and Pisces correlate to the collective emotional body and to all mass phenomena, to everything that affects the entire Earth. The Full Moon in Pisces brings up intense compassion for others: many of us feel the need to help, to do something good for humanity, as we feel increased sensitivity and concern about what has been going on in the world. Many have been strongly affected by what is happening in the collective, sensing deeply, on an individual level, events that are not affecting us personally. If you have been feeling overwhelmed, you are not alone!
Grounding and Welcoming Unexpected Changes
On the Full Moon, we have several supportive aspects that allow us to take advantage of the earthy energy available, helping us ground our emotional energy and welcome unanticipated changes.
The Sun in Virgo forms a trine to Uranus in Taurus, creating an easy flow of energy that helps us stabilize our emotions, see the bigger picture, cultivate discernment and objectivity. Meanwhile, the Moon in Pisces forms a sextile to Uranus, suggesting the possibility of unexpected change unfolding spontaneously throughout the rest of the lunar cycle.
Taurus corresponds to our resources, talents, and capacities. Thanks to the influence of the Full Moon, we have the chance to discover latent abilities and gifts we didn’t know we possessed. It’s up to us to be open enough to let them emerge, develop, and unravel naturally.
Mercury in Virgo trine Pluto in Capricorn is another positive aspect: it encourages a constructive and practical exchange of ideas that can benefit everyone involved, and has the potential to help us open up to a different perception of the current reality.
Venus opposite Saturn: Know your Worth
As the Full Moon in Pisces takes place, we also witness an exact opposition between Venus in Cancer and Saturn in Capricorn. This aspect reminds us to value ourselves and our capacities inviting us to believe in our inherent worth and in our ability to form healthy and supportive relationships.
The opposition between Venus and Saturn reminds us to be gentle with ourselves, to give ourselves space, and to take all the time we need to process the emotions coming up. It is perfectly fine to take a break from the demands of the outer world, if you feel the need to do so.
With several planets in Water signs, it can be easy to self-sacrifice and put others’ necessities first: beware of not compromising your essential needs and desires in order to make others happy. Be also mindful of not over-idealizing people: everyone is inherently good, but this doesn’t mean we should allow them to disrespect us: know your worth, express your needs clearly, and hold firm boundaries.
Full Moon in Pisces: Entering the Dreamspace
When the Full Moon happens in a Water sign, emotions are more intense than usual. The Moon is the natural governor of ocean tides, and human bodies are made of about 70% water.
The more sensitive amongst us are going to notice her potent effects on our inner state and our mood. Any activity that helps us grounding such as sports, journaling, and spending time in nature are going to be extremely beneficial during these days.
Our sleeping cycles can be particularly disturbed and disrupted by this celestial event, as Pisces and Neptune are the archetypes correlated with sleep and dreams, to lucid dreaming and astral projection. This sign is associated with the production of melatonin, a substance synthesized by our pineal gland that regulates our circadian rhythm – our sleep-wake cycle, our body’s internal clock.
The pineal gland is associated with our Third Eye or Ajna Chakra. This energy center is located near the pineal gland, in the middle of our forehead: in most spiritual and esoteric traditions, it is considered the seat of our intuition, sixth sense, psychic abilities, and our connection to Source.
The Full Corn Moon in Pisces is going to stimulate the pineal glands of all beings on Earth and affect the production of melatonin: stay open to whatever comes up, don’t resist any feeling, and navigate your sensations without fear.
The ultimate teaching of Pisces is to surrender. Accept things as they are, and let go of any attempt to control the unfolding of our life situation: all is well, the Universe is supporting us, and whatever happens, it is for our highest good.
