Full Moon in Pisces
Full Fruit Moon
September 6, 2017
Tornadoes, hurricanes, tsunamis, floods, water everywhere; it seems that most natural disasters involve water, snow, and wind. This is most likely due to predispositions of the eclipses in Air and Fire. But it does not leave much for us humans. As I had spoken about these anomalies in my predictive blog late last year.
However, open your eyes to the sky on September 4, 2017 when Neptune, the God of Water and the ruler of Pisces, will be very close to Earth. This doesn’t mean that you will see it, but I will say that what is about to happen during this marvelous event on 5th and 6th of 2017 is not only interesting for Astrologers and Astronomers, but for Vedic Philosophers as well.
VPAT (Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Theories) teaches that Shiva was born under the sign of Neptune, i.e. Pisces, and we recall that Jesus’s ministry was referred to as “Christian Fish Symbol” which represented “fishers of men” (Matthew 4:19). Fish are a different overtone for different people. Nevertheless, VPAT does not believe that Neptune, Pluto, and Uranus have that much of an impact on humans as these are issues that are controllable as they are related to emotions. But are they?
Many say that 98% of all humanity has Pisces somewhere in their chart and we are 98% water, therefore, many of us have intuitive abilities and are drawn to religious attributes. Thus, this beautiful moon will bring out emotions; recalling people who lost their lives in saving others in every aspect of disasters – not only natural, but also man-made. Pisces dynamism is just that, sacrifice at all costs for civilization and a flood of emotions. As it is stated in the Vedic Culture, God was a Pisces and the Christianity symbol is a fish.
The beautiful celestial event will cast over our atmosphere with its spiritual light of the full moon in Pisces on September 6, 2017 at 3:03am EST and 12:03am PST at 14 degrees in Pisces, depending upon the orb. In the Vedic culture, Full moon is not an omen, but rather a blessing. This is a perfect situation to start something new in the areas of spirituality and self-improvement, such as yoga, meditation, or anything that brings you closer to peace and serenity. Hence, conveying spiritual advantage is the subject of this full moon.
As we bring spirituality into our souls we will be given messages from the universe to call upon our higher power to have natural endings. Anything that no longer has our best interest at heart will end. But through the natural process, prayers and offerings are always welcome. Adorn the Divine with flowers and fruit and you will be blessed with healing.
This healing will come naturally for many Hindus as they take a holiday on September 5, 2017, as it is final day of Ganesh Visarjan. The actual festival began on August 25, 2011 where a large statue of Ganesh was adorned with flowers and worshiped; over 10,000 statues were displayed all over the larger cities. On Ananta Chaturdasi (Sept 5, 2017) the deity statues will be paraded through the streets while followers will sing and dance as they take the statues to the ocean and submerge them.
Though the story of this particular event is complicated and long, the meaning is so powerful that if we are reminded daily perhaps the world would change. The official meaning is that since humans cannot really understand to pray just on energy alone, we were given idols such as pictures and statues of Buddha and Christ, in order to make them visible. Additionally, because the universe is in a constant state of transformation, the form, shape, and color eventually fades or falls apart, but the energy still remains. Submerging the deities’ statues in the ocean, or another body of water, serves as a reminder even if our physical self falls apart our soul is kept alive. We are all universal and go through changes, as our physical body changes our soul never really dies, and during this event it is a spiritual awakening.
This moon is named after the blessings of the beautiful flowers and sweet fruit that tickle our nose; pumpkins, honeydew, cantaloupe, and other fruits we wait for all year. While the sweet taste of sugarcane burning can be smelled for miles, the soil multiplies with earth worms to repair the soil for the next harvest. This is one of the reasons why the northern hemisphere named the first full moon in September as the “Fruit Moon” and the southern hemisphere named it the “Sugar moon” or “Worm Moon.” But many times Harvest Moon. Those that have Pisces anywhere in their chart will be affected by this moon; the more you have, the more you will be an emotional sponge. To find your placement I would suggest you contact my recommended astrologer Lee Stillwaters, Xtrology or Leslie Hale.
There is no reservation that this drive will bring more psychic aptitudes, thus more predisposed to, or sensitive to, our environment and with others. All will seem more luminous under the light of the full moon. This may influence our sense of self, becoming more inflated, and mostly having to do with our personal relationships with others.
When Venus enters Virgo it critically impacts Virgo’s and it takes a hard turn from having everything fun to now being more serious. Virgo is naturally reticent, concerned, and a great listener. The problem will occur however, when the relationship becomes a little shifting; there could be more concerns about appreciation. Be careful not to be too critical to your partner, especially those that have Virgo planets.
The sun in Virgo and the moon in Pisces can be a very affluent time to heal. When the physical and spiritual worlds become one we are no longer obsessed with finding inadequacies but accepting of them as they come. Mantras, poonam Pooja, as well as prayers can have a major impact on healing and finding the answers on a higher plane.
Emotional bonds comforting, healing, and assisting those less fortunate than you is the theme of this full moon. There are also tendencies to meditate in a quiet place to heal internal pain and sacrifice for the sake of humanity.
With Mercury in a Post-Regression Juncture in Leo things may still seem confusing. Especially even more intense for fire signs (Leo, Aries, and Sagittarius) but along with their brothers and sisters who are paying back last of their karmic lessons. Scorpios and those that have any planets in Scorpio this is their last lessons in Saturn even though they will be tested every now and then. While Virgos will soon be passing the torch of luck to Libra soon, therefore slowly everything is shifting and the healing energy of this moon is welcoming.
During this full moon be very careful of indulgence, preoccupation, greediness, and selfishness. Since the moon in Pisces represents devoutness, insight, and extravagance to materialism, focus primarily on being considerate, artistic, and sympathetic.
You may choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle. Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras, achieving the desired result is dependent upon the value of intention; this is also true when it comes to finding a satisfying relationship, spirituality, and success. Before practicing or becoming diligent to our spiritual journey it is vital that intentions are clear and the outcome is not selfish.
The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but are a powerful source of energy. This year, I am giving beginners a chance to become more advanced and those that know the Sanskrit mantra to become experts in mantra rituals by offering 3 mantras.
The mantra for Pisces moon is:
Om Hreeng Kleeng Sauh
(ommm Hriing Kliing Sauuh)
Om Kleem Uddhritaya Udharine Namaha
Om Namo Bhagavathe Dakshinaamoorthaye…Mahyam Medhaam Pragnyaam Prayachas Swaha Vrushabath Vajaaya VidhMahe Kruni Hastaaya DheeMahee-Thanno Guru: Prachodayaath…ApraMeyathva ya theedha Nirmala Nyaana Moorthaye…Manogi raam Vidhooraaya Dakshinaa Moorthaye Namah
For those who are religious on Poonam, make sure you do Satyanarayan Pooja and recite the above mantra changing the Namaha to Swaha
This is a very spiritual moon, thus aims regarding materialism must be voided and replaced with peace, unity, understanding, and compassion. For Christian practitioners, I recommend lighting a white candle on that day. Carve your name on the candle, anoint it with Frankincense oil, and chant Psalm 65 three times.
I am not an astrologer, rather a Vedic reader who incorporates the energy of both Vedic and Western astrology as a basis to Vedic ideology. Vedic readers investigate the difficulties to assist in altering an adverse destiny and karma to bring positive pathways into self-concept as well as self-actualization so the journey can be as sublime as the path that it has taken.
This full moon is going to affect almost everyone and it should be embraced as a change that is absolutely necessary. To recognize that something must go, or leave, and our psyche will help us with this pathway.
Enjoy this beautiful spiritual moon.
