The March 24, 2020 New Moon birthed the lunar phase family for this upcoming lunation. It also coincided with the seismic shift of our collective lives: social distancing. The entrance of restrictive Saturn in society ruling Aquarius shattered the myth of personal power and autonomy. How poetic that what began with an Aries New Moon culminates with a Pisces one. The Ram meets the Fish.
Watery Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac. This Full Moon at 28º Pisces on September 20, 2021 at 4:54pm PT offers an opportunity to release any false narratives surrounding control.

When there is a concentration in one element, bring in the others to balance yourself. Get into your earthly body with walks in nature or grounding by running your bare feet through the grass. Embrace the lifegiving force of fire by moving your chi. Do some heart pumping exercise, enjoy a great laugh or take a calculated risk. Nurture your water with meditation or just be still and listen to your body knowledge.
Mercury is retrograde so it is a good time to embrace the “re” words. Relax your mind, carefully review contracts, and reread any correspondence. Most of all, just slow down. The winged messenger is a trickster so save all your documents constantly while drafting them.
