Happy Full Moon 🌕💧✨
@ 3:03 AM EST the Full Moon was exact at 14 Degrees of Pisces. It is an extra nebulous & watery cosmic event not only because la luna is FULL, in the saltwater sign of Pisces, but Neptune in Pisces is ON the moon. Illumination will be had, along with release, surrender, & reclamation. Neptune/Pisces is the end of all things, the ultimate transition points. The Everything Must Go Sale. The ghosts that need release from this realm. Mercury is DIRECT so that's cool but ultimately we're still taking it slow & steady. Stabilization & flow.
There's that scene in Harry Potter & the Order of the Phoenix where his godfather Sirius is killed & falls into this whispering veil those of them that had familiarity with death were drawn to, in the Department of Mysteries. This is what this Full Moon reminds me of. What comes after Death? After destruction? When everything is burning & drowning & holy fuck where the hell is Gd? Why is it still raining? Who has to be the Messiah understudy? What's beyond the veil? Why is it whispering to me?
Ripped myself out of bed which is hard to do when the Full Moon is in Pisces and my own Moon is too. I had a candle burning on my moon & water altar until the wee hours of the morning & put another one on at 6 AM. For all the islands, for Houston, for the fires...para mi patria Puerto Rico. I have waves of grief running through me & yet...we function anyway. And sometimes we don't. It is what it is. I was constantly up last night checking the status of the Hurricane & Puerto Rico. Will be praying today.
I'd like to leave you some pro tips for dealing with Pisces- my natal moon is in Pisces (in the house of Scorpio, the Phoenix) so I am familiar with the process. Surrender is definitely essential- which does not mean doing nothing necessarily, though it can. It is more indicative of not obsessing over what is out of your control, managing your energetic directions so that you are sending the most love. Our rage is really love. Our pain is really love. Deep, painful, powerful love. I fucking hate hearing this when I'm furious & hurting, but it's the lesson of Pisces. Getting to the undercurrent of everything.
Make time to be alone/in space. Pray, even if you've forgotten how to, you can follow the urge if you have it. This is a marvelous time for magic, especially in the arena of release/healing/compassionate altruism. Don't force, don't push. If you must be driven or motivated, focus on the love, pull up from the deep well. If it is dry, your first priority is to fill it right now.
Time for café con leche. I leave you with the incredibly soothing & sultry musicals of Sabrina Claudio. I could watch these videos forever. I highly recommend listening to Orion's Belt next.
