Don't we all deserve to feel a little bit more dreamy and a lot less stressed? The upcoming Full "Harvest" Moon in Pisces on September 20/21 will have you feeling creative, a wee bit touchy, and a whole lot intuitive.
Don't fret if you're reading this after the Full Moon phase, as this energy won't be leaving us anytime soon, and you don't have to be a Pisces to soak this all in, as all signs will benefit.
Most of us understand the four elements that affect our individual signs, water, earth, fire, and air. Since Pisces is ruled by the water element and the moon needs and loves water (causing high and low tides), the ebb and flow of energy will be felt on dry land by us all, and it is a beautiful Moon to behold.
Neptune, the God of the sea and ruler of Pisces, is connected to inspiration, daydreams, spirituality, psychic intuition, and magic. Not the kind where you pull a card out of your sleeve, but the kind where you begin to believe that you can manifest your future.
While Neptune, the planet of illusion and dreams, is in force during this Full Moon, bringing on all kinds of emotions (brace or embrace those feels, you'll choose), and you may wish to take inventory because this is more about your heart and less about your head. Hence your ability to tap into your intuition and seeking answers to questions that may be lingering.
This Harvest Moon is begging you to disconnect from "needing" to understand yourself and intuitively connecting with your core, and Neptune is giving you carte blanch to evolve into your higher, more sacred space.
After all, Neptune is the planet of compassion and spiritual enlightenment. So isn't it time you tapped into that side of yourself? That area you know exists and listen to occasionally, and then tune out when life gets hectic.
Chakra Meditation & Mantras
The best way to make use of this Full Moon is to start doing mini-meditation by closing your eyes, putting your hand over your third eye chakra, taking three deep breaths, and envisioning a beautiful blueish light around your head. Set your phone to 10 minutes and stay focused on your breathing. Then, open your eyes and ask yourself, "how am I feeling."
Here are some mantras you may wish to recite while you practice mindfulness. If you continue this for 30 days, you may very well begin to tap into your more intuitive nature.
Don't forget how powerful your subconscious mind truly is and how rechanneling with positive mantras can move out negative thoughts. Full Moon's are an excellent time to embrace mantra-making habits.
- I am not afraid to chase my dreams.
- I will wish for it; then I will work for it.
- I am the most important project to work on every day.
- Today is the perfect day to believe in blessings.
- I AM enough because I AM.
- I am on my path.
- I may slow down, but I will not stop.
- I have a beginner's mind and focus on what I can do.
- I speak the language of love.
- I trust myself.
- This moment, my moment, my joy.
- I embrace my strength.
Keep up with this practice between this Full Moon and the powerful New Moon coming October 6th. An excellent goal to achieve.
What to Expect From the Full Harvest Moon in Pisces
Fall is a time of change. Nature creates such gorgeous tress; the weather gets cooler, and we have a more profound desire to feel warm and fuzzy. This Full Moon in Pisces will be igniting more passion for trying something you've been thinking about but a wee bit hesitant.
Pisces are known for being very receptive and creative and not afraid to express themselves. You will feel this energy right now and definitely want to make the most of it. Time to tap.
Is there a hobby you've been thinking about taking on? The creative side of Pisces is in the air, and we could all use some relief from the day-to-day stresses.
You may not be the next Picasso, but you may have a desire to start painting, drawing, or maybe writing a children's book since Pisces loves to play. For those of you who love to move constantly, Pisces energy will definitely encourage you. Take up tennis, golf, or pursue something physical and fun.
If none of that resonates with you, but taking some downtime for self-care does, then this Pisces Full Moon energy will support you all the way, as they LOVE to be pampered. So what does that look like for you? Mani-pedi, massage, new hair cut or color? Whatever your pleasure, enjoy.
Some of you may have a much stronger desire to go deep and release feelings by journaling and performing release rituals, then take a hot bath in Epsom salt and Lavender.
There is no right or wrong way to carry this out. You may feel like you only need a day to two, or perhaps you may need a few weeks—what an excellent time to let go of everything that doesn't serve you now or in your future.
So while a Full Moon in Pisces may have a bit more intense energies, get aligned, and then when the New Moon comes around on October 6, 2021, you will feel relieved and can soak in the much lighter energy.
Raise Your Good Karma & Luck Full Moon Rituals
Whether you choose to go outside during this Pisces Full Moon or stay indoors, you will maintain the same efficacy and results. Also, it is important to understand that sitting Indian style and holding your fingers in a meditation position are NOT vital to achieving the right results.
What is essential is your comfort and how you are feeling. It doesn't matter if you're in a good, bad, or indifferent mood, all are welcome. The goal is to create a sacred space just for you.
- A wonderful ritual to do during a Full Moon is to create a quiet space, light a white candle and sit in meditation/prayer. This allows you to connect with Spirit and get centered with your intentions, so you’ll know what actions to take in the coming weeks.
- Take a hot bath with natural sea salt, baking soda, and fresh lemon to cleanse your Aura and reconnect with the core of who you are.
- If meditation/prayer isn't for you, then go outside palms up toward the Moon and say a "thank you" to the Universe for all of your blessings. This outstanding practice can start with the Full Moon and continue every night until the New Moon. You will begin to feel a shift.
- Another great ritual is to put your crystals outside, overnight, under the Full Moon. If you can't keep them out, put them on a window sill that captures the moonlight. This will cleanse and recharge your crystals, so they will continue to work at their highest vibrational frequency.
The Yin and Yang
While we always wish to be the bearers of good news, there are a few things to think about and dates coming up that may affect your zodiac sign because Mercury retrograde (more below) isn't that far off. However, with the Fall Equinox right around the corner on September 22, you may feel off of your usual game.
Virgo season is coming to an end and leading us into Libra Season, September 23 to October 22, 2021, and that is the good news. While most signs will be affected by the upcoming retrograde, there are many positive and negative objectives to weigh, and we will list them below. Remember, the most important thing of all is to never "fear" anything. You control your reaction and destiny.
With Venus, the planet of love entering Scorpio, the planet of action, and Mars entering Libra in September and through October, feelings of love, peace, and harmony will prevail, provided you are open and ready to receive. Hence paying attention to doing Full Moon meditations and mantras as was stated above.
Mercury Retrograde is following close behind on September 27, and things may get a little off balance and wonky. That is why it is essential to keep yourself steady and stable with meditation, yoga, exercise, and mindful thinking.
Libra's light energy is something you will want to tap into constantly, and remember, they are the host with the most. So if you feel a hankering to have more of social life, then have at it and have fun while you're at it. Just stay safe.
September to October Glimpse of 2021 Astrological Overview
The Love & Intimacy Planets Are Here
When Venus entered Scorpio on September 10, many of us may have had more of a need to delve into feelings of love and emotions, especially around intimacy with our partners. Keep that energy flowing throughout the remainder of September and well into October as transformation is the key and romance is in the air.
Don't think, just do and be in love with love. As Mars entered Libra on September 14, and with Libra season following so close behind, you may feel like saddling up to your partners and exploring all of this fiery, intimate Mars energy in the bedroom and beyond. Have FUN!
Libra Season & The Fall Equinox On September 22
We have a fantastic article coming on the upcoming Libra Season and Equinox on September 20. We will cover Libra's ultra social, romantic, need for harmonious relationships into perspective for you.
As it aligns with the fall equinox, the first day of Autumn, our days and nights will have equal time as we head into winter. Social connections will be a significant player during Libra Season, as well as getting rid of old relationships and diving into new ones. Libra's are the consummate lovers, and we will have all of that fire, passion and yummy vibrations surrounding us.
2021's Final Mercury Retrograde Begins On September 27
Keep in mind that while that loving Libra zeal will play a part in our enthusiasm, you may be thrown off by this year's final Mercury Retrograde. This is why it is pertinent to follow through with rituals, meditations, and overall self-care physically, spiritually, and emotionally during this Full Moon.
Miscommunication will play a big part in this retrograde until October 18, and there is no reason for you to fall under its spell. However, because of Libra's energy during this time, there may be unresolved issues within relationships that need to be brought out into the open.
Don't forget to keep your temper low and moods balanced should that occur, and don't jump to conclusions or make rash decisions. This retrograde will be gone, and it is the last one of 2021. The holidays are close behind, and Scorpio Season begins October 23, bringing with it a promise for great success in both personal and professional lives. YAY!
Don't get too mired in what is coming up in the near future. Instead, stay in the moment day by day, starting with this gorgeous Full "Harvest" Moon, and remember that this is the time to tune into your intuition and harvest those dreams. Next, follow our suggestions above with rituals, meditations, and mantras. Finally, don't forget to let the Full Moon cleanse your gemstones/crystals for you while it guides you toward peace and love.
Wearing your gemstones every day is a powerful way to stay connected to your goals and dreams, recharge yourself, and stay aligned with your purpose. In addition, the energy of gemstones neutralizes blockages that may be causing sluggishness and nourishes all aspects of your being.
