In last year’s Pisces Full Moon post I told you about how hubby wanted to buy a hedge trimmer at the local hardware emporium even though we don’t have a hedge. ‘But it’s not about the hedge,’ he’d said.
And it’s not- it’s about the possibility of a hedge and what that could mean. Every person in that store (well, most people, anyway) were there because of the possibility of what they were building or fixing or creating. I suggested that maybe the tag-line for Bunnings should be something like: Building Australian dreams- one project at a time. (Marketing departments- I’m ok if you want to use that…)
The thing is: this one line is exactly what the Pisces Full Moon is about. Building dreams- one piece at a time.
It’s that point here fantasy meets reality, where dreams become projects, where imagination is broken down. It’s about escapism and routine; empathy and practicality; chaos and order; a breezy disregard for detail, and attention to the finest of details.
Neither side is good, and neither side is bad- but one can’t exist without the other.
Dreams are good, but to turn them into something that even approximates reality, you need a good dose of practicality- and that’s where Virgo comes in. Likewise you can sometimes lose focus on the possibility if you’re stuck in the detail- and that’s where Pisces comes in. The Virgo Sun reminds us that there is a long list of tasks that need to be completed, but under the Pisces Full Moon we ask whether those tasks need to be completed now, or if they can wait. Doing faff all certainly reduces your anxiety and stress levels, but at the end of the day, you’ve achieved faff all. I could go on.
Wherever Pisces and Virgo falls in your chart is where you’re looking at your balancing act now. What are your dreams- especially in relation to that part of life? Can you learn anything from Virgo to help break down the tasks into something more manageable that could help you achieve those dreams? Are you feeling chaotic and drowning under the stress of the everyday or the pursuit of perfection? Is there something you can learn from Pisces? Is it possible to critically examine your to-do list and write “not now” beside anything? Are you sabotaging your efforts by trying to do too much yourself? Or, are you sabotaging your efforts by doing too little and refusing to accept the consequences of your behaviour? Have you fallen too far into either the Virgo or the Piscean shadow? Only you can answer that.
In fact, if it all seems too hard and you feel as though you’re going under, why not try an old project management trick. Take your list (if you don’t have one, write one) and beside each task write: yes, no or not now….or today, tomorrow, later.
Doing it for yourself
Ok, by now you should know the drill, but if not, check out this post.
I’ve popped a solar guide below to keep things simple, but if you know where 24 Pisces 19’ falls in your chart, check that out.
As for what you can expect? By now you should also know what the general themes of each house are about, but if not- or if you’re new to this site (and welcome- it’s lovely to see you here)- you can always check out this post. While I’m pushing you towards links, you might also need this one- on eclipses.
As for me? Tomorrow’s Full Moon (exact just after 5am Saturday morning in Sydney) and eclipse falls halfway between my Sun (at 20 Pisces) and my Moon (at 27 Pisces). It is also conjunct my Chiron (25 Pisces) trine Jupiter (24 Cancer), trine Neptune (24 Scorpio) and opposite Uranus (22 Virgo). Yep, just as it did at the Solar eclipse earlier in the year, this lunar eclipse will be activating the kite pattern in my chart.
According to my Moonshadow report:
- Eclipses to the Sun are about crises of self expression. It’s a time to stand up and be counted, to rule your own kingdom, take creative power
- Eclipses to the Moon are about crises of security. It can bring a move, a change of job (helloooooo), a feeling of rootlessness, and vulnerability.
- Eclipses to Uranus are about crises of Things could be changing too fast- or not fast enough. The work you have to do is your vision and requires you to stand alone.
- Eclipses to Jupiter are about crises of growth. It’s a time to take a leap of faith- in both yourself and your dreams. Even if you fail, you’ll learn and grow.
- Eclipses to Neptune are about crises of faith. What are you afraid of? This is about having the faith to step into the shadows and confront the worst of your fears.
Of course, if you want to know more about what the eclipses in your chart means, you can purchase your own Followed By A Moonshadow report. The link is in the sidebar- just under the subscription thingie.
At the Pisces Full Moon two years ago I made the decision to self-publish and with my third book due for release in October, I can now call myself an indie author. That Full Moon was conjunct my Ascendant- exactly. I hinted the other day at the nature of the decisions that are coming up and my fears around those, so I’m using this Full Moon to put my business skills to good use and come up with a vision and a strategy for my indie business- one that will allow me to earn an income from this work and my novels- and allow me to continue to do both.
The leap of faith and the fears? Well, that’s obviously to do with the impending move and my anxiety around housing, income, jobs, friends, and whether it’s the right place, the right time, whether I’m too young, whether it will make me older, whether it’s a step forward, or a step back. I could go on.
Ok, that’s enough about me- now it’s over to you…
