If you’re ready to evolve in matters of the heart, the full Moon in Pisces tonight (September 12) offers up ample opportunity. This special evening features a unique aspect to Moon’s north and south nodes, as well as to love planet Venus, making for a dramatic astrological lineup.
The north and south nodes of the Moon represent the journey of our soul as we evolve through time. Currently, the transiting north node is in Sagittarius and the south node is in Gemini. This indicates that our collective evolution as a species is supported by Sagittarius qualities: growth, diversity, expansion, philosophy and travel. We would do well to move away from the more challenging aspects of Gemini: trickery, doublespeak, information overload and superficial communication.
What’s this all got to do with the full Moon? Well, this particular full Moon happens to form a very dynamic relationship – a square -- with the north and south node. The resulting effect in our personal lives can be exciting, creative and energizing -- or tense, stressful and difficult.
With the Sun in Virgo and still very close to Venus in Virgo, our focus is on work done in the service of love. It’s time to take careful steps toward manifesting true love.
The full Moon in Pisces, opposing the Sun in Virgo, demands that we infuse our hard work and focus with an ability to also let go and surrender to the greater will of spirit.
In addition to this already demanding Virgo-Pisces polarity, the nodes also want their say. Sagittarius asks that we keep the big picture in mind, staying focused on the overall meaning of our heart’s desire. Gemini may distract us with pieces of information that aren’t really relevant to the larger goal.
So how to keep your head when everyone around you may be losing theirs? Since all the signs involved (Virgo, Pisces, Sagittarius, Gemini), are in the mutable family, flexibility is key. This full Moon is no time to be stubborn or remain fixed in your opinions. Remaining open to others’ viewpoints, going with the flow and remaining dedicated to the task at hand are all survival strategies to navigating this period.
With Venus gently supporting the Sun, relationships will help us maintain balance. Align yourself with people who help you maintain your integrity and sense of purpose. Seek out people who have a desire to make the world a better place. Anyone who distracts us from our truth can be released now, transitioning into our past rather than influencing our future.
