The Full Moon occurs at 00:54 (BST) on September 21, 2021 at 28°Pi13′. Pisces, the last of the signs – the beginning and the end, above and below. This sign is symbolised by two fish swimming in different directions yet connected. Pisces represents that which connects us all, the invisible thread linking atom to atom. Pisces is also life beyond death, life after life, the cosmic round.
At Pisces Full Moon, boundaries are blurred, the mystical and the magical come to life, especially as this lunation conjoins ruler Neptune. Can you feel it in the air? It’s natural to retreat, to step back, to embrace silence or quiet music. For some, this is a time of spiritual uplift, communing with deity, epic dreams. Others may cry, sob for what was once lost or never found. This is a Moon of release and surrender. If the waters are muddied, it can be a time of deep regret, giving in, even victim consciousness.
This Full Moon may be a culmination of events that began back in March when we had the New Moon in Pisces. This is a soft, watery, malleable sign. Everything is shifting and changing, ebbing and flowing. The locomotive shaped chart, lead by the Sun, suggests we’re driven by a search for ourselves. Underneath the hush of waves is a constant refrain…
Who am I? Who am I? Who am I?
We’re lost, floundering in the ocean, unsure of where we are going. The opposing Sun in Virgo tells us that we want to feel of use. We tinker with tasks, pick at problems. But we’re riding an emotional high tide with Lord Neptune carrying us on his chariot. White horses kick and whinny, frothing hooves slashing at the peaceful escape we long for.
But we can’t escape. The Virgo Sun keeps us with at least one foot in reality – even if the bottle or the bed looks inviting. Instead of struggling against the tide, we can surrender, float, see where the universe takes us. It may help to do a check in, figure out what belongs to us and what doesn’t. Psychic receptivity is acute and it’s hard to know where we end, and another begins. Make time for relaxation, sleep, meditation, artistic pursuits. Attend to boundaries.
Pisces is connected to peace. Pisces is the monk walking the cloisters or sitting high on a mountain. Pisces is the space between breaths. Listen to your breath. Essentially this Moon reminds us that we all come from the same source, whether the primordial soup or Spirit.
Mars enters Libra at 01:13, September 15, 2021. Mars is considered to be ‘in detriment’ in this sign as Libra opposes Aries, the sign that Mars rules. The word detriment can bring up certain associations, like thinking that whatever Mars does here has a ‘detrimental’ effect but that is not the case. Just as with any placement, there are always positive and productive ways to use the energy but it does means Mars has to work a little harder.
I have a lot of Aries in my chart and I was thinking that a good human example of this transit might be, being asked to do a project with a colleague at work. If you’re like me and always prefer to work alone, then this kind of situation can a challenge, especially if it’s someone with whom you butt heads from time to time or they have a knack of saying things that press your buttons! But all that has got to be put to one side because now you have to find a way to work together to get the project done. This process of learning give and take, letting the other person take the lead sometimes and so on, forces us to learn important lessons. And so it is with Mars in Libra.
Mars is our drive, will, energy, motivation and passion. In partnership-orientated Libra, this transit can certainly enliven relationships. There’s plenty of spice here but of course the heat can sometimes build so much that sparks begin to fly. In a healthy, happy relationship, this aspect might simply motivate you and a partner to start working on a goal together – or maybe you have more ‘quality time’ together so to speak! But in a relationship where there has been contention or a sense of something brewing, Mars can stimulate the area so much that confrontations occur. Most likely, it’s because it’s necessary to blow off steam and clear the air, but it’s important to bear in mind that we could be inclined to be more pointed, pushy or angry than we intended, not least because we will also have a Mercury retrograde in Libra whilst Mars transits here.
