Around 4:40am Pacific time on Tuesday, March 7 is the Full Moon in the Northern Hemisphere. We have the Sun in Pisces shining light on the Moon in Virgo. The Pisces Sun is the source of all things creative, blissful, it wants us to live with ease, compassion and oneness. The Pisces Sun illuminates the shadow of Virgo which triggers perfectionism, overthinking, emotion, over analyzing, worry, self-doubt, self-criticism & workaholic tendencies. The shadow of Virgo limits us from living our Pisces intentions. There is a spiritual source wanting to come through each of us that our human bodies try to block with our wounds of the past. Pisces wants us to be creative, do tasks with more ease, incorporate self-compassion as we learn, be whole and connected as one, exercise acceptance, experience bliss and conduct ourselves with a balanced flow of spirit and our physical bodies (mind/emotions). Pisces can react to it’s own shadow with escapism, avoidance, addition and self-sacrifice. This Full Moon is about healing the gap and finding balance between Pisces and Virgo.
Remember that Pisces is the end of the astrological year. A time to look over the past year and acknowledge the healing and growth you have obtained. And acknowledge what wounds still limit you from living life connected to spirit as a physical being on a daily basis. To live in 2 realms at the same time, spirit & earth. The influences of this Full Moon support spiritual healing, expansion and love. Take this support and let go of the burdens, delusions, fears, self-doubt and constrictions that limit you from being connected to oneness & bliss. Practice self-compassion toward yourself and others as you learn lessons, fail & make mistakes. See life as a learning experience full of lessons as you continue to flow through life. This Full Moon provides us with the energy of liberation. It is time to learn to flow with change and make choices & take action that influence the outcome. A time to trust flow and break free from what limits you. When faced with a fork in the road know you can trust your body to communicate the truth for a greater solution.
Just hours after the Full Moon on Tuesday morning, Saturn (the rule maker, structure creator) will enter Pisces where it will be until May 24, 2026. Saturn is presently sitting at that last degrees of Aquarius and is looking back over it’s mastery of the past 3 yrs in Aquarius and letting go of the unfinished work. In Pisces, Saturn will be ruled by Neptune (the Great Spirit) creating spiritual discipline & karmic reckonings dealing with lessons of spiritual connection. We will have the influence of all the good things about Pisces, forgiveness, flow, bliss, oneness, creative inspiration. Saturn will bring lessons that challenge our Pisces to include lack of forgiveness, lack of spiritual discipline, lack of flow, lack of boundaries, etc. You have the opportunity now to prepare yourself for the upcoming changes by setting intentions for wisdom and strength to guide you with compassion through the life experiences Saturn will bring.
Let’s see what the cards tell us with the question of: How can we release the old wounds that limit our embodiment of spirit into our routines and actions so we can live a more compassionate life? I drew a card from the Oracle of the 7 Energies by Collette Baron-Reid. The card is: A Tall Tale. The essential meaning of this card from the book: denial, concealing the truth so you can manipulate and control a situation, fear based communication, finding a narrative to hide behind, not allowing the fear of what others will think to influence your words, learning to communicate from a place of authenticity.
I say: If you listen to your body and hear your heart (connect to spirit), you always know when something is not true. Our wounds can step into our minds and emotions to create confusion & chaos and you must recognize that as false truth. Be brave to speak the truth. Change creates chaos and brings out our fears of repercussions when standing alone in our truth. We must have the courage to know that following truth is the path forward. It prevents the long detour lies create to get to the solution, the end result. When you avoid the truth and follow a false truth, it is doomed to fail and can create self-harm. Be on the side of victory and liberation. Find a source of true courage to stand with to empower you when you are weak. Meditate on finding what you need to empower you to do what is best, not to just follow and let others make your decisions for you. Have the courage to jump in and feel the exhilaration of accomplishing your truth. Hear all the inspiration that follows. Open your mind to new ideas and find your truth tribe. If you do falter to a delusion or lie, forgive yourself when you admit to your truth and let go of the wounds that sent you on that misguided journey. Learn the signs of denial & escape within yourself so you will not be tricked again. Learn to stand up to fear with objective confidence and open yourself to find a way to gain courage in disagreement with those you love. Hear the opposition, but stand strong in your truth and pray for those who have been led astray from their own truth to awakened. Then be there with an open and compassionate heart to support their path forward.
Peace & Love, Susan
