Collective Energies:

As the last sign in the zodiac, Pisces is considered an amalgamation of all of the signs. It beckons us into the places where we feel connected to the whole or a unity consciousness. Ultimately it invites ways of experiencing flow and universal love. Pisces takes us to the heights and the desire to connect with the divine, though its shadow side often reveals itself through projections, fantasy, or disassociation. For this reason, those with strong Pisces or Neptune in their chart often struggle to discern reality or can be prone to addictions as a way of escaping feelings.

With the moon in Pisces the emotional realm can become overly empathetic or a little lost at sea. While it connects us to unconditional love and the spirit realm, it also can lose sight of shore. The highly sensitive element of Pisces invites us to be gentle with ourselves and others as we may notice waves of emotion without warning. However, my least favorite tendency of Pisces moon can be to spiritually bypass feelings or disassociate to avoid them. Remember we must navigate the messiness of being human before we can fully own our divinity, though Pisces may sometimes tell us otherwise.

This full moon sextiles Uranus and Saturn as archetypes of traditional and non-traditional ways of being in the world. We can most likely expect to notice the two sides of us that often feel polarized, may begin to harmonize. The tight Pluto and Venus square also occurs the day of the full moon, perhaps creating relational intensity or a new depth in connection. This combo can make relating difficult or can evoke intimacy through vulnerability.

Pay attention to places where there may be illusions that want to be shed as well as honoring the emotional and physical sensitivity Pisces brings up. Soak in the unconditional love of yourself and others while staying rooted on Earth. The best ways to harness the energies of this full moon would be time in nature or meditation, though it may want us to disassociate in substance, drinking, or watching too much Netflix.

 

Everyday Rituals:

// DO // Focus on cultivating flow states with meditation, yoga, dancing, painting, or photography. Use a crystal like carnelian or labradorite to enhance creative and meditative energies. Be sure to stay grounded, though, as the Pisces moon can set one mentally and emotionally adrift. Black tourmaline is an excellent grounding stone.

// BE // Pay attention to your dream life as Pisces can create a bridge to the emotional subconscious.

// EAT // Stay hydrated, or focus on foods such as vegetables and fruits.

// WEAR // Colors such as blue, silver, or white to soothe and connect to water.

My friends, this by far is probably one of my most anticipated monthly overview articles. I remember back in 2019, looking at my ephemeris for February/ Spring of 2021 thinking, “I can’t wait to see how the world evolves and what comes of the stellium of planets in Aquarius”. At the time it wasn’t quite clear just exactly how the world would gather together and make strides towards unity. Two years, a world pandemic, major economic and political crosses later: here we are. It’s safe to say our work is cut out for us. If there is one thing astrology has taught me, it’s that you have the ability to create...
