This PISCES FULL MOON will also be both a SuperMoon and a Harvest Moon.
Astrologically speaking, the Moon is full when it is directly OPPOSITE the Sun. The Sun is currently in Virgo. Pisces is the balancing sign of Virgo on the Wheel of the Zodiac. They each contain the essence of the other. This is reflected by the symbol of Pisces, which is two fish swimming in opposite directions. One might compare this to the Yin-Yang symbol where the black fish has a white eye and the white fish has a black eye.
Virgo energy relates to SACRED SERVICE. This might involve taking care of those that cannot care for themselves, including plants and animals, and healing practices. Virgo tend to “NEED TO BE NEEDED”. Virgo is the sign of the DISCIPLE that seeks to perfect himself or herself. The Tarot Trump for Virgo is The Hermit.
Pisces energy relates to SELF-SACRIFICE. This might involve surrender of self for the sake of others. The challenge is to render UNCONDITIONAL LOVE without sacrificing ones own needs to the extent that there is a feeling of victimization. Pisces is the sign of SPIRITUAL RETREAT. The Tarot Trump for Pisces is The Moon.
