This month we have the last of a precession of three Super Moons. This months Super Moon is in Pisces & is also conjunct with Chiron, a dwarf planet that is associated with the archetype of the wounded healer.
Super-moon's otherwise known as "perigee-syzygy's" astronomically refer to the closest approach that the New or Full Moon makes to Earth in it's elliptic orbit.
On a personal astrological level, Super Moon's are a time when the Full Moon's energy is far more dramatic & climactic than normal. The effects of a Super Moon are always more emotional & intuitive, particularly as this months is in ultra-sensitive watery sign of Pisces.
If you have access to your natal chart, check the house where Pisces at 16 degrees falls, this will give you a clearer idea of where the energy of this Full Moon will play out in your life.
Regardless of what house your Pisces falls under, this Full Moon marks a wonderful time for deep, creative & soulful meditation.
Due to being extra emotionally & intuitively sensitive this month, it's really important to be mindful about your environment & the people that you share that with. Ideally you want it to be as calm, soothing & tranquil as possible.
It's good to create a beautiful creative & calming haven. Light some incense, burn some candles & surround yourself with crystals.
Pisces is the intuitive artist of the zodiac, drawing or painting in a visual diary is a wonderful way to embrace the watery energy. Maybe even a visual dream journal. It's not about being an amazing artist, it's about allowing the wonder of cosmic energy to freely flow through your fingertips.
You might find that you have vivid dreams or interrupted sleep patterns during this time. Any dreams you have however, weird, intense or insignificant they might be, all have deep symbolic meaning. All are messages from your higher self, with the intention to heal & give you wisdom along lifes journey.
By using this Moon's energy to positive effect we can help ourselves overcome many past hurts & we can successfully take down the old out-moded self-defence barriers that where once helpful, but now hinder our personal growth.
Where we might have felt emotionally too weak to face our old demons, now the energy around us is making us internally stronger, we have emotional core strength, this is the time to face those demons head on & vanquish them for good.
We do the healing work this month not only for the benefit of ourselves, but to help others around us who are struggling.
Often being sensitive creatures of heart, we can be drawn to martyring ourselves to save someone else. However kind & helpful the deed is, at this astrological transitpeople need to be encouraged to stand on their own two feet. Instead, with empathy, we show them how to help themselves. By being a shining light of inspiration, we set a positive example to lead by.
Pisces is a dualist split-personality sign. The symbol of two fish going in opposite directions, suggests that people can irrationally flip & dramatically change their mood in a split second. If someone looses their cool around you, remember it's not personal, take it with a pinch of salt. If someones shadow side does come up, Pisces being a mutable sign, which means adaption, tells us that this negative side will disperse as quickly as it arrived.
If you feel as though your the one whose personally been experiencing challenging times, take comfort that Chiron gives us hope, a light at the end of the tunnel.
This is a time of great changes, transformation & new life. The Spring Equinox, seen as the New Year by Pagans, is on the 21st Sept & heralds this positive change in.
A new year is also reflected in the Full Moon being in Pisces this month. Pisces is the 12th & last house of the Zodiac cycle & a Full Moon in Pisces marks the energetic end of the year & the threshold of a new dawn.
Whilst going through a strong Chiron transit, it's really good for the next few weeks to avoid all toxins to the body, like alcohol, sugar, tobacco etc. Or anything we self-medicate with.
Chiron is well know for all forms of natural healing, particularly herbalism & acupuncture/accupressure. So now is a great time to get a healing session, treat yourself to some lovely herbal teas & add lots of herbs to your cooking.
The combination of the Super Moon & Chiron marks a time for deep healing of old hurts. Chiron asks you to embrace your inner child, through delving into childhood memories, particularly around Mother, as Pisces is associated with the feminine & Moon Mother aspects. If you have children, this can also come up as how you see yourself as a Mother.
This transit can also bring up co-dependency issues that stem from childhood, that play out in our closest relationships today.
The cosmos encourages you to work on healing around family, as mentioned particularly Mother & also any childhood wounds. To help you in this soul work, we have Pisces, who is the sign associated with healing shamanic journeys.
Embracing your inner Pisces Shaman can be done through a number of ways:
Mediation - with the aim of slipping into a trance like state. A candle lit shower or bath would be perfect, or even running your hands through a bowl of water will help induce the right calming energy, if you have any of the Pisces essential oils listed, you can add afew drops to the water
Lucid dreaming - Try drinking some Lavender & Mugwort tea to aid this, remember to write down any dreams you may have, as these will be messages from your deep unconscious. Sleep with any of the Pisces crystals in your bed, they are all good for aiding Lucid dreaming, calming sleep
Talking to nature - whether it's the bush, a garden or even as you walk down the road in an urban area, talk to nature however small it is & see what messages come into your mind
Abstract drawing mediations - take 12 deep slow breaths,then take a purple or blue colouring pen & allow yourself to focus all your positive energy on the pen. What type of shapes & lines would a positive energy, healing pen draw? Without self-judgement draw whatever comes to you, focus on the feeling as you move it around the paper making abstract shapes. After you naturally feel as though you have finished, spend afew minutes focusing on your breath & allowing yourself to sit with what this drawing has made you feel.
Divination - access your own inner wisdom through using Tarot, Runes, Oracle cards or any other for of divination. Intuitive energy's are at a peak.
Daydreaming - Allow yourself to time to daydream: for example; it could be fantastic worlds, magickal forests, beautiful water falls. Just follow wherever your mind takes you.
You might find that this period of emotional sensitivity & healing goes over afew weeks, so make sure your being extra kind & nurturing with yourself.
Hope you have a enchanting, dreamy & creative Full Moon.
