I'm having all these feelings. What do I do?

This post is an excerpt from Rhea's book The Light That Changes: The Moon in Astrology, Stories, and Time                    

When the Full Moon in Pisces lights up the sky, focus on building your sense of compassion and creating some down time for yourself.  You may find this to be a good time to reawaken your connections to spirit and find direction for your soul’s path.

This Full Moon has everyone feeling more sensitive than usual, so be mindful of how you interact with loved ones. You may feel more vulnerable, confused and impressionable, and the desire to retreat will be strong. We could really feel the weight of the world with this Full Moon, drawing attention to our own short-comings, suffering and illusions of life. It’s a good time to reflect on such themes, but be careful not to get lost in the deep end. Retreat is a good thing, but isolation can also heighten our painful feelings. Be especially mindful of using alcohol, drugs or other methods of escaping your problems.

To harness the energy in positive ways, engage in activities that are restorative and healing, such as being in water, meditating or listening to soothing music.  If we look to ourselves and the world through the lens of Piscean compassion, we can release long-standing patterns of suffering, such as the victim-martyr conditioning in relationships.

Use this moon to deepen your intuitive capabilities by focusing on dreams, visions and other spiritual channels.

  • Where do you receive inspiration and spiritual sustenance?
  • How do you connect with the Divine or remember you are not alone?
  • What are the ways you bring healing to the world?

With this Full Moon in Pisces, we are headed into ECLIPSE SEASON. Read more here about the Solar Eclipse New Moon on September 12.
