The Virgo/Pisces Full Moon Polarity: Working to Make Dreams Come True

1 The Virgo/Pisces axis of the September 4th Full Moon illuminates the polarity between what we dream about and what we do. Hopes, dreams and visions, fantasy and imagination are all subjects in the Pisces kingdom. And across the deep, shining sea lies the land of Virgo – terra firma upon which the workers work to build the dream and manifest the vision, one day and one step at a time. 

 Pisces listens to celestial music, floats on clouds and swims in oceans of emotion while Virgo hears the hustle and bustle of progress, critiques the process and improves the product. Virgo is the sign of analysis and logic; Pisces is the sign of intuition and mysticism. Virgo corresponds to physical embodiment; Pisces relates to spiritual transcendence.

Throughout the Virgo zodiac month, we are called upon to focus, simplify and consolidate. We are asked to discern and sacrifice, take responsibility, cut the fluff and eliminate excess. It’s all about cleanliness and organization, self-esteem and self-improvement, good deeds and nutritious diets. Health is wealth. It’s a time to show up and get the proverbial job done.

1 As the Virgo Sun opposes the Moon moving through Pisces, we reflect upon where we are today – in this present moment – and whether or not we are actually working on making our Piscean dreams come true. Are we making progress or lost in illusions of grandeur? Are our egos out of control or are we simply connecting with the mysterious force of a higher calling? Is it denial and delusion or true desire and ultimate destiny?

This lunation provides plenty of room for analytical thought, critical discernment and practical action, but it gives equal space to romantic yearning, creative musing and otherworldly experience. Balance your head with your heart, practice compassion and loving-kindness, see the forest for the trees and stay on the path. Embrace the rosy glow of sunset, the twinkling stars of twilight and the mystical magic of following your dreams – just don’t forget the maps!

Happy Full Moon!
