At the Full Moon of the zodiac’s grand finale, I can’t help but think of the divine incompletion of Pisces. A struggle I often experience as an Astrologer is that every horoscope, every book, every reading feels incomplete - because any Astrological content inherently is unfinished. There’s always next month’s Astrology. There’s a transit tomorrow. There’s never a conceptual end to this conversation; even as the zodiac’s conceptual end.
When I think of Pisces, I think of this mutable water sign as how Sarah Lewis defined creativity as the “ever onward almost”. It’s the near win. The unfinished book which cuts off mid-sentence. James Baldwin spoke Pisces when he was asked by Jordan Elgrably, “What would you say increases with knowledge?” and Baldwin answered, “You learn how little you know.” We realize at Pisces season how incomplete our learning is and the divine dissatisfaction of an education without a conceptual end.
Secular voices are attempting to pinpoint this emotion of paradoxical incompleteness. Like Adam Grant who framed the feeling of this current period as languishing. Defined as “... a sense of stagnation and emptiness.” Then there’s Amy Cuddy who put forward the idea of “the pandemic flux syndrome” which is the anxiety people are feeling because of the prolonged liminal state; a threshold of acute uncertainty and exhaustion.
I suspect the Full Moon in Pisces wants us to both name and normalize the incompleteness, the inevitable uncertainties, and the liminal spaces of the human experience. Since what often stops us from contributing something we’re working on and/or what emotionally activates us is when we realize something is unfinished. We equate incompletion with failure. What if we didn’t see this as a failure but a valuable function of the ever onward almost?
With Neptune conjoined to the Moon and Venus in Scorpio opposing Uranus in Taurus, the naming and normalizing of life’s incompleteness would do wonders for our creative potential and our relationships. On our creative endeavors, we’d understand incompleteness as the cost of admission for contributing creativity. On the level of our relationships, we’d surrender an attachment to certainty, conclusion, and even closure. While maximizing our grit and resilience level in the context of relating.
Lastly, if you’re feeling anxious, depressed, exhausted, and unsure - you are not alone. The Full Moon in Pisces joins in empathy with you. While pointing the way to your heart and a spiritual practice which can help you walk the path of the ever onward almost. May you receive the clarity and peace you’re praying for.
Completion, Surrender, Healing & Spiritual Support
Closure is a gift you can give to yourself, Aries. Monday’s Full Moon in Pisces wants you to use a highly individualized spiritual practice which you resonate with that can help you find the forgiveness - of both self and others - the grace, compassion, and hope you’re looking for. Wipe the slate clean with help from the Universe so all that you’re a better fit for can come.
Friendship, Activism, Convictions & Shared Humanity
Feel-with others, Taurus. Monday’s Full Moon in Pisces wants you to understand empathy in friendships. Empathic success is a result of you understanding the feeling, not always the experience of others. Support your loved ones by identifying the emotion, connect to that feeling, and let them know that they’re not alone and/or the only ones for maximum support.
Career, Purpose, Integrity & Responsibility
You’re in the pursuit of mastery, Gemini! Monday’s Full Moon in Pisces is the space between finishing a goal and realizing an outcome while reaching for another and working for the next step. Give gratitude for the process and stay curious, adaptable, and receptive to all that you’re learning so that the Universe can lift your professional goals to transcendent levels.
Wisdom, Publishing, Vision & Higher Education
You’re holding a key learning, Cancer. Monday’s Full Moon in Pisces helps you identify an idea, innovation, a creative dream that wants to be applied. You’re in an embryonic phase a bit so be protective and careful about how you share, contribute, and operationalize the learning. Lean on your faith and stay committed to this learning so you can see what you’ll give birth to.
Intimacy, Eros, Sexuality & Transformation
“Intimacy” as framed by Esther Perel is “into-me-see”, Leo. Monday’s Full Moon in Pisces helps you take off the armor and reveal the most meaningful dimensions of your mind, heart, body, and soul. You’ll be tasked with self-disclosing to people who you trust. Reveal your desires, hopes, and/or fears to others so that they might meaningfully understand you.
Romance, Love, Partnerships & Trust
Seek understanding, Virgo. Monday’s Full Moon in Pisces helps you balance the desire to be understood with the work to understand another; especially if they’re completely different. You don’t have to measure this process with agreement as the goal. Just understanding. Get curious, ask questions, reflect them back to the other and you’ll find your way to one another.
Humility, Health, Wellness & Routine
Let the healing continue, Libra. Monday’s Full Moon in Pisces is an invitation to advance your self-care by committing to a spiritual practice that optimizes your mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual wellbeing. Since you’re beginning to understand the correlation between what you choose to do in the morning and the quality of the results you have throughout the day.
Courage, Worthiness, Charisma & Lovability
You’re worth it, Scorpio. Monday’s Full Moon in Pisces inspires you to choose worthiness as your birthright - because it is. Accept this Truth and lay claim to a life of courage, compassion, and connection while you live from worthiness. You and all your strength and imperfections are fundamentally worthy of love, joy, belonging and happiness. Right now. So act that way!
Vulnerability, Home, Family & Emotionality
What does “home” mean to you, Sag? Monday’s Full Moon in Pisces helps connect you self-acceptance as the key foundation of belonging. Then it’ll move you even closer towards discovering the people, places, and experiences that feel like home. Home is a feeling, right? So let the feelings of home guide to finding home within first and then belonging with others.
Curiosity, Observation, Language & Active Listening
Words are windows or walls, Capricorn. Monday’s Full Moon in Pisces instructs you to use communication as a bridge not a barrier. You’ll want to connect to the emotions that are inherent in the words people are trying to say. Then share what’s on your heart vulnerably and deliberately so that others can see inside your windows a bit and you can see inside theirs.
Finances, Security, Clarity of Values & Pleasure
Put your values into practice, Aquarius. Monday’s Full Moon in Pisces clarifies what you value and what behavior supports putting those values into a deliberate practice. Along the way, you’ll feel even more embodied and clear on your contexts for personal, financial security. Since security is a life that is built carefully though practicing not just professing values.
Identity, Desire, Charisma & Authenticity
Let’s begin again, Pisces. Monday’s Full Moon in Pisces is your chance to find peace in the ever onward almost. You’re not fundamentally flawed. You’re not broken. You’re imperfect and still worthy. You’re right on time. Use this Moon to find belonging in the present moment and choose behavior that supports the vision of the person you’d like to powerfully become.
