Full Sturgeon Moon in Pisces: Embrace This Time of Slowing Down.
Expect things to slow down a bit with the Full Sturgeon Moon on August 26th.
If you have been feeling the intensity of the past few months, you are not alone. We have had several eclipses, including the one from July, which was the longest lunar eclipse of the century. Couple that with the intensity of Leo season and it is set to create a rather fiery experience.
I love writing these articles about the energies, not to use as an excuse for our behavior, but rather to give a better understanding of how energies can affect us and how we can best work with them in order to enhance our lives. I’d like to be clear that nothing outside of you has power over how you choose to respond in any situation. Mostly, I see it as a tool to assist you on your journey.
Now we have officially entered Virgo season and we have the first full moon in Pisces. The earthy energy of Virgo and the watery nature of Pisces create a slower and more intuitive time in our lives. Virgos are known to be very grounded and logical while Pisces is more of the dreamer. These two energies combined have the potential to help you dream big and then take logical steps towards those dreams.
Communication might be slower-moving and softer with those you love, which could be a welcome relief after the full moon in Aquarius and the fiery energy of Leo. This full moon could possibly have you thinking your feelings through before carefully expressing them to another. You can also expect more feelings of romance to creep in as well as a possibility of greater sensitivity.
That said, Virgos are known to be more critical, so bear in mind that any judgments you are feeling towards yourself or another might be a bit more transparent at this time. Try to stay mindful of how you choose to express these criticisms even if they seem harmless, as they could possibly hurt much deeper than intended.
The card we received for this moon was Tick Tock from The Wisdom of the Oracle deck by Colette Baron-Reid.
The first thing I noticed about this card was the number 3 (3+0=3). Threes represent unity of mind, body and spirit. It is the number of manifesting and following your intuition.
The clock makes a lot of sense to me in regard to this full moon as things are beginning to slow down. To me, this is just reiterating that we can use this slower moving time to get in touch with our inner world and bring them into our reality with grounded steps.
Reid’s message behind this card reminds us that time is cyclical — with past, present and future sort of melding into one. We seem to live in a world where our lives are dictated by the clock, but this lovingly reminds us that all things have their time. Working on your own personal dreams — whether in relationships, career or prosperity — takes dedicated effort, but all things come to pass in divine time.
I say, take the message of the 3 by following your intuition, use the energies of Pisces and Virgo, and try to remember that spirit does not follow a clock. Don’t stop pursuing something just because it hasn’t physically manifested according to the clock or the calendar on the wall. Your only job is to decide and then stay focused on the outcome you desire.
Do your best to let go of the when and stay true to what feels best to your spirit. You will not go wrong.
Most of all, enjoy and embrace this time of slowing down and deeper connection with your creative side. Let it bring a richness you had not discovered before, and be at peace knowing how colorful you truly are.
May this full moon bless you in ways you have not known.
And so it is.
