The FULL MOON occurs on Wednesday, September 6, 2017, at 3:03 AM EDT.
On Wednesday morning, a Full Moon occurs, when the Sun in Virgo forms an opposition to the Moon in Pisces. The Sun is at 13 degrees and 53 minutes of Virgo, affecting people born with personal planets and points at approximately 11 to 17 degrees of the Mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces) most significantly.
The Virgo-Pisces polarity is the service axis, and it deals with the balance between day-to-day functions and routines, physical health, and the need for order (Virgo) and vision, spiritual health, disorder, and the infinite (Pisces). Virgo rules our personal set of tools and techniques that we use to deal with day-to-day life, while Pisces rules the tools that we use to deal with our spirituality. The key to balance lies in identifying and expressing our spiritual needs while maintaining order in our everyday lives. Neglecting either end of the axis will surely backfire–we would either be living in chaos or in excessive order.
This Full Moon is tightly tied to Neptune and this can be a dreamy, inspired time but also one when we can be wrestling with expectations.
Ultimately, the Pisces Full Moon pits the Virgo Sun’s egoic drive for efficiency against the soul’s need for spiritual connection. It’s true that dreamy Pisces can be prophetic and intuitive, yet it can also be fearful and confusing. Nevertheless, we must also remain practical as the earthy Virgo Sun narrows our perspectives and bring us each back to the pressing matters in our individual lives.
Conflicting cosmic messages are strong during this Full Moon, as the detail-oriented Virgo Sun focuses our thoughts while the Pisces Moon joins nebulous Neptune to soften our resolve. Establishing healthy boundaries is hard work, yet our fuzzy thinking inspires us to imagine alternatives that previously seemed impossible. Luckily, action-hero Mars and clever Mercury are harmoniously trine to electric Uranus at the time of the Full Moon, shocking us into awareness. Intelligence is poised to overcome ignorance. Change is not only possible, it’s inevitable — and it’s going to happen fast!
The main themes of full moon September 2017 are spirituality, idealism, dreams, illusion, deception, weakness, confusion and vagueness. How will Neptune influence affect your mood and close relationships?
Moon conjunct Neptune increases your emotional sensitivity. Sensing the thoughts and feelings of others can make you feel very uneasy or physically sick. You may pick up the wrong signals so be cautious, you will be more vulnerable to deception and scandal. Dreams may turn into fantasies with a life of their own. Suspicion could spiral into paranoia, guilt or self-destructive habits such as drug addiction and eating disorders.
Full Moon September 2017 is like a double-edged sword. Conscious self-awareness will help you filter out the background noise so you can use your sensitivity for good. While some psychic impressions may inaccurate, your compassion and empathy will be genuine. You can be of great help to the victimized and outcast. Your emotional comfort will have a healing quality.
Hygiene and cleanliness will be important because this full moon is associated with weakness and illness. Higher susceptibility to germs and the effects of drugs, alcohol and anesthetics are likely. There will be an increased risk of exposure to poisons and infectious material.
