The evening of Monday, September 8, brings us one of the dreamiest lunations of the year: the full Moon in mystical, magical Pisces, known as the "Harvest Moon" to Native Americans.

Because this is the third Super Moon of the summer, it could feel extremely potent. In fact, the entire week leading up to this very special event should feel rich with intuitive energy. Pay close attention to your dreams!
At no other time of the year are we as close to the astral realm as we are when planets are in Pisces. At this moment, the Sun is in Virgo -- a sign of hard work, detail, and the place where we focus on the trees, ignoring the greater forest all around. This Pisces Super Moon can bring us back to the bigger picture, especially when we get overly caught up in minutiae. It may do this simply by making you loopy and unable to focus -- but welcome the distraction! If you keep trying to focus like a laser beam while Pisces is pleading with you to drift and dream, you'll just make mistakes anyway. So relax, and let those daydreams take over!
Because this full Moon is close to Chiron, the wounded healer, and in a positive angle to Saturn, the Cosmic Taskmaster, some ancient issues could come up now -- probably from your early childhood. If a family member triggers an old wound with harsh words, or a difficult dynamic comes up with a loved one, try to remember that the Super Moon (almost as potent as an eclipse) is here to help you heal the past.
Just as easily, these issues can arise directly from your dreams, and they are likely to contain important messages. It's the best time of the year to keep that pen and paper by your bedside, and begin writing down everything you can remember as soon as you wake up. Extra tip: Pisces rules the feet, so you may want to go dancing on the Saturday night prior to the full Moon -- preferably al fresco, under the ample stars. The Moon will already be gloriously huge and gorgeous.
Try not to succumb to the Piscean tendency to mistake paranoia for psychic vibes -- your instincts are very strong right now, but not everything that flits across the screen of your mind is true. At the same time, try to avoid Virgo's pitfall: being such a servant to the people you love that they forget to give back to you.
Your most important admonition is to dream a little dream, so close your eyes and activate your imagination!
