September dances into being with a beautiful, gentle full moon in Pisces. This Full Moon September 6 2017 Softens things a LOT, after the fiery intensity of the last few months.
Madame de la Luna is not only in boundless Pisces, but she is also dancing cheek to cheek with Neptune, the ruler of Pisces and the sea, making the current astrological theme even more intuitive, more oceanic, more imaginative, dreamy and FEMININE than usual.
Opposing all this dreaminess is the Sun in Virgo – earthy, orderly, health conscious, organised, strategic, sometimes a little critical. Mars enters Virgo on the 5th as well, giving us a hefty dose of masculine order and pragmatism this full moon.
Mercury finally turns direct on the day of the full moon at the same degree as the eclipse , extending the eclipse season into this month. If you missed my last post, you can read more here The winged messenger then moves into Virgo on the 10th, where he will stay for the next month, lending us all some pragmatism and strategic planning ability, so that we can make positive steps regarding our health and well being for the next few weeks.
Let’s go on a little flight of fancy – Pisces loves that !
Full Moon September 6 2017 – She’s asking us to dance!
Imagine an old-fashioned dance floor, where it was still customary for men to cross over to the other side and ask a woman to dance. Yes… it was in this century all you young ones!
The first character in our story is the Sun in Virgo – masculine, earthy, grounded, clever, witty and pragmatic. He cuts a dashing figure, freshly shaven, immaculately turned out, in his custom designed suit and stylishly cut hair. With an eagle eye, and using his incredible powers of discernment, he starts to suss out the talent on the other side of the dance floor. “She might do… but …oh no.. her nose is a little large!” Or “… Well she’s pretty, but that laugh…. too loud!.” ” Hmmm…She looks quite interesting, but really… those colour choices?” Mr Virgo carefully and critically weighs the options, before making his move, which will be strategically planned. He likes things to be timed properly, and to be clean and orderly. He really hates chaos and does everything in his power to avoid it. In fact, he prides himself on bringing order to chaos. He favours the pure, the healthy, the fit and the hygienic. Not too much mystical, magical stuff for him!
And then…the lights change, the rhythms start to play and suddenly out of the corner of his beady eye, appears a vision of loveliness. Seemingly manifesting from the ethers, she floats into his line of sight, this other-worldly, ethereal looking feminine phenomenon. She’s all fragility, swathed in floaty, gossamer fabric the colour of the sea, and bedecked with fresh flowers in her hair. Her eyes are half shut, as she sways seductively to the music, seemingly lost in another world. Miss Pisces loves to connect to and sometimes lose herself in all that is. She hates too much order, dislikes any kind of boundaries and prefers to spend her time creating, imagining, dreaming, dancing, healing, and playing. Her pleasures may very well include slowly sipping an entire bottle of excellent wine and getting more than a little tiddly, demolishing all manner of delicious tit-bits and making long and lovely love. She is oceanic and vast and difficult to catch and pin down and control – a little like an angel fish.
Mr Virgo initially is appalled that he’s even vaguely drawn to this strange creature, so he returns to his strategy of assessing the rest of the feminine contingent. However, the music is intoxicating and as Miss Pisces starts to dance towards him, he feels himself being irresistibly pulled towards her. Before he knows it, he’s standing in front of her in the middle of the dance floor. His strategy and planning goes out of the window, as he feels magnetically attracted to her. She gently touches his hand, encouraging him to sway with her, flow with her. As he imbibes her gentleness, he feels his defences dropping…. softening… gentling. She on the other hand, is drawn to his strength, and finds his sense of order and direction reassuring, like a welcome rudder in a turbulent sea.
And this dear hearts, is the way I see the energy of the Full Moon September 2017 playing out for the next few weeks. The feminine within us…meeting and integrating with the masculine within us. For better or worse, in sickness and in health. The parts of us that wish to dream and love and imagine and merge, accepting and integrating the parts that wish to plan and strategize and order… rather than keeping them on separate sides of the room, or the world, or the universe for that matter
Jupiter in Libra is standing on the side-lines, egging us on to find balance, peace and harmony through love and acceptance in our relationships. Not forgetting, that the most important relationship we have is the one with ourselves.
5 ways to dance with this Full Moon September 6 2017
- Spend a little more time just “being” and not “doing”
- Listen to your intuition – your internal gps will be more finely tuned than normal – use it
- Engage in non-outcome driven creativity – dance, sing, make music, paint, play!
- Flow with life more – reduce the rules and the outcomes
- Be aware of where you criticize yourself and others and opt for love and acceptance instead
I Hope you Dance!
Have a look at this video or just read the words, but either way… I hope you dance! Thanks to my friend Toni D’amant for this!
I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
