Full Moon in Pisces ~ September 20, 2021

Two days before Equinox we’ll have a Full Moon in Pisces. My September 2021 Forecast notes:

September 20 Full Moon in Pisces at 7:55 p.m. Eastern. Like August 22, this is another void of course Moon, also known as a Moon wobble. It occurs in almost the final degree of the zodiac, with Mercury opposite Jupiter at the same time. These alignments make this Full Moon better for meditation than intention. Allow yourself to receive information beyond the boundaries of normal life. You can take action once the Moon moves into Aries — later that night or early the next day, depending on your timezone — but take some quiet time first. What have you learned over the past month? How has your worldview shifted over the past year? Ponder these questions before initiating.

The Sabian Symbol for 29° Pisces looks like the album cover to Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon.

The Story of Pink Floyd "The Dark Side of the Moon ...

The actual degree of the Full Moon is 28°13′ Pisces, but we always round up for Sabian Symbols. As described by Dane Rudhyar:

(PHASE 359 PISCES 29°): LIGHT BREAKING INTO MANY COLORS THROUGH A PRISM.

KEYNOTE: The analytical power of the mind necessary for the formulation of life processes in their many aspects.

Cycles of existence begin in unity and end in what I have called “multi-unity.” At the stage of consummation the many individual differences are totaled; they constitute a sum. Within that sum — a unified total — the inevitability of the future process of differentiation is implied, because every cycle leaves a mass of waste products slowly returning to the unconscious state of chemical matter, of “humus.” What the symbol tells us is that unity will always break again into multiplicity. The “prism” is always there. There is no absolute unity; if anything could be called “absolute” it is the relationship between the One and the Many.

This fourth stage symbol of the concluding five-fold sequence of phases points to the fundamental type of operation in all modes of existence. The most beautiful and seemingly everlasting experience of unity will in time be superseded by the need to attend to a multiplicity of details. Existence implies DIFFERENTIATION.

I find this description comforting at a time when humanity faces consumption by The Borg. I’m not a Star Trek aficianado, but the idea of The Borg always made sense to me. I could feel that pressure to conform to the hive mind, and I know the media, social media, societal and peer pressure have been operating at full tilt. I don’t imbibe in these, but I hear from clients, and I read the energies. These are difficult times for people committed to living from a place of inner integrity, if that inner intergrity happens to diverge from mainstream anything.

This Full Moon reminds us that all unity eventually differentiates. We both merge and separate into all the colors of the rainbow. No matter how perfect or how authoritarian the conformity, at some point, other options appear. With Mercury opposite Jupiter, we would be wise to observe more than pontificate. Too much optimism or impatience could lead to exaggerated statements that return to haunt us. This is doubly important because the Full Moon conjuncts Neptune — ruler of dreamy Pisces, yes, but also a potential marker for confusion.

It’s better to get things right than to rush ahead “where angels fear to tread.” We might catch glimpses of a (much) bigger picture, but this Full Moon suggests we trust things to evolve and reveal themselves in the light of day. For now, be open, curious, and willing to recognize and acknowledge larger forces in play.

“It takes sunshine and rain to make a rainbow. There would be no rainbows without sunshine and rain.” ~ Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

Two days after this Full Moon, the world recalibrates at Autumn Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere and Spring Equinox in the Southern Hemisphere. For one day, the forces of light and dark are balanced, as we move into the sign of Libra, symbolized by the balanced scales of Justice.

It may not always seem obvious, but there is a cosmic order behind the scenes. Beauty, healing and harmony are available. Trust the process. Rainbows are a sign of hope and a promise of better days ahead. When you’re in a storm, remember to look for future rainbows.

    Interesting read. That image reminds me of the premise of the book “The Prism of Lyra” by Keith Priest and Lyssa Royal. The over simplified summary is how Lyra was the gateway (the triangle) that fragmented the one into several.

    Also reminds me of the “Dark Dide of the Rainbow” that was a fad in the 90’s. You pop in “The Wizard of Oz”, sound off, and play Dark Side of the Moon as the movie soundtrack. The music has to be set to “repeat all” and must start at the 3rd roar of Leo the MGM Lion.

    When done right you’d swear Pink Floyd wrote this album to fit with this movie on purpose. Fun thing to do on a Saturday night. 😺

    Thank you, as always, for the heads up. 🧚‍♀️
