The September Full Moon, traditionally called the Harvest Moon, brings a deeper sense into everyday life. We get an insight into our psyche, into what connects us with everything else, but sometimes also into abysses, or something unpleasant. Time to take stock and keep only what`s good!
Several monumental astrological constellations are happening around Mid-Month, so the energy jams and explosions that can happen around Full Moon can be particularly strong this time. Precisely at the Full Moon, Mars reaches its opposition to Neptune, which makes contrasts starker and inner tensions come into full relief.
The will to order practical life, to stand on earth with both feet, to do something for your health (Mars in Virgo) comes up against the desire for higher meaning, the mystical, the non-practical, all-that-is (Neptune in Pisces). You may feel torn between what is to be done and what you desire; between everyday needs, and bigger dreams.
Beware of drugs or alcohol during the whole time around mid-month. The agglomeration of Sun/Mars in Virgo versus Moon/Neptune in Pisces can bring complete rebellion against reason and adult responsibilities. The veils of perception, to the deeper psyche, as well as to the deeper universe, are extremely thin - over-irritation, disease, nervous crises, even psychotic episodes or poisoning phenomena are possible.
Whoever uses the energy of the Full Moon well first needs grounding, reason, and a certain maturity. Then you can have an unbelievable inspiration and/or compassion, unity consciousness, an almost supernatural experience. However, with the Moon/Mars opposition there is something that doesn't completely allows you to rest. Maybe some kind of disturbance, anger, or stress from everyday life.
You can observe exactly what puts you under pressure and work on it - this can be the harvest of the Full Moon! Often it is (wrong) beliefs or worldviews that cause stress and unbearable inner or everyday tensions. The third square between Jupiter and Neptune takes place shortly after the Full Moon. Any kind of ideological conflict could intensify around the Moon.
Beware of arguments about religion or spiritual beliefs. Even too strict fasting, yoga or silent retreats may do you less good than you think. It is much more a matter of tracking down the half-conscious or completely unconscious behaviors, or behaviors justified by principles, that lead to dissatisfaction and conflicts in one's own everyday life.
The third very important astrological event of this time is Saturn's change of direction on September 18. Especially for Capricorn, Aries, Cancer and Libra born in the middle of their signs, or all people with planets around 13-15 degrees of these signs, life can now present a big challenge that feels fated.
But no matter your sign, you should definitely pay attention to your behavior and its consequences. If there are always negative reactions to you, then observe what you`re actually doing, and start to change it! Often we don't realize how hard, isolated, or on the contrary, needy and exhausting we are towards others. Time to dissolve these ways of being and the world- and self-images that go with them!
This Full Moon can bring drastic experiences for many people, by the way also in the area of health. Most importantly however, this Harvest Moon focuses on dissolving and letting go of inner mechanisms (Pisces) that cause anger and stress in outer, practical life (Virgo). The planets give the timing, you have to do that work yourself, even if it seems difficult.
Show discipline and will to change, then miracles can happen. Do not underestimate the power of sleep, dreaming, and targeted meditation/visualization around this Full Moon. Use the magic.
Happy Full Moon!
