This full moon is also an eclipse, for more specific information on the Pisces Full / Moon Lunar Eclipse please read my previous post <><><>< What’s the Deal with this Eclipse? :: Full Moon // Lunar Eclipse in Pisces 9.16.16 ><><><>
Once every 28 days we experience a rush of solar energy being expressed as an undercurrent of emotional awareness. This IS the full moon. The term lunacy comes from the idea of the moon’s energy causing people to act, well, for lack of a better term “crazy”. Each full moon is different, depending on the aspects in the sky at the time, the build towards the full moon, and for each individual, where the moon falls in your chart.
Why is a Full Moon so Important Astrologically?
It is a time, when very simply, the moon is opposite the sun in the sky. Without any further knowledge of signs or other aspects, this is a time when the vitality and expression of your personality clashes ((represented by the sun)) with the underpinnings of safety, security, secrets, obsession, and addiction ((represented by the moon)). In an opposition, the drama plays out in the world around us ((friends, family, society, authority, home, work)). Depending on where the full moon lands in your chart, it will indicate more specifically the area of potential struggle or, to see it positively, area of potential growth and release.
The sun seeks freedom, expression, and would love to continually burn brightly. The moon, however, seeks private space, to be unseen yet supported, to feel safe. The bright burning embers of the sun connecting fully with the quiet sacredness of the moon is what we feel during a full moon. Expression could be restricted by the moon’s hesitation to be seen, and the opportunity to release could be hindered by the need to express and be free of certain “feelings”.
The full moon asks if you can find the balance? As in all aspects of opposition, there is the ability to meet in the middle on the razors edge. Think two triangles meeting at their points. The base energy of each is strong, but where they meet is tenuous and requires focus to stay balanced.
The Key to Finding Full Moon Balance :: Match Expression with Personal Safety
This is subjective for each individual, but on both ends, you must find your strongest potential. Create at least one hour of ME time, where you can express all of your weirdness and unique creative potential in a way that nurtures you deeply. A bathtub filled with epsom salt, essential oil, and flower petals sounds nice. Or perhaps an electric guitar, a drink of whiskey, and a blacklit basement is more your style ((this is the Moon aspect)). Whatever the case, the safest place to cry is your SAFE-ZONE. This will build the self trust and inner strength necessary to find the opposite end of the spectrum, being seen by the world ((the Sun aspect)). Many people are simply not comfortable speaking in front of large groups, but if you are, this is a great time to do so. Brimming with confidence from your recent emotional self nurturing, go out into the world and spread your funky vibes. However deep you dug into your hole of sacred safety, this is how deep the light of the Sun will allow you to release.
The sun has antimicrobial and antiviral effects, boosting the immune system. Also the sun lifts mood and creates a feeling of positivity. By aligning yourself with the sun ((expressing vitally and being seen)) during a time of extreme vulnerability ((full moon)), you are kicking your sadness in the ass.
For some, being seen may be as simple as a trip to the grocery store or a Facebook video about some topic on which you are passionate. Whatever the case, I suggest not missing the opportunity to be seen. This will give the underpinnings of self judgement little chance of lasting through the day.
