Full Moon in Pisces & October Astrology: 10 of Cups

Full Moon in Pisces

The Full Moon in Pisces falls on Monday, September 20, 2021, just two days before Autumn Equinox, the changing of the seasons and the turning of the Wheel. In the last part of Pisces, alongside daydreaming Neptune, the Full Moon invokes the 10 of Cups card in the Tarot, the Lord of Satiety.

As every Full Moon is an opposition, we also have the Sun representing the 10 of Pentacles (Wealth), nearly ready to forge a new path when he initiates Libra season on Wednesday. Both of these cards signal completion: Emotional & Physical. Relationships, family, and security are major themes at work with this Moon. The 10’s of the Tarot serve here as a reminder that we’re at the end of the season and new energies are definitely incoming.

Mercury forms a perfect, uplifting trine to the Full Moon in Pisces’ ruler, Jupiter, during this lunation. In the same moment, he makes an intense square to purgative Pluto. Both aspects will be repeated during Mercury’s forthcoming Retrograde (September 26 – October 18). Pluto will be a main player as we wrap up this Lunar cycle and during the entirety of the Next, stationing Direct on the New Moon and nowhere near stopping at that.

An abundance of free-flowing Air energy will be stimulating mentally, making this Full Moon a good time for research and investigation. We can bring things into the light more easily now, confronting truths we buried long ago.

9 of Pentacles: Lord of Gain

Aquarius Full Moon 2021: Blue Moon & Grand Air Trine

The Aquarius Full Moon on August 22, 2021 is a Blue Moon, the second Aquarius Full Moon in a row. The first on July 23rd was beside Saturn and opposite Mars. This time, Jupiter Retrograde opposes the Sun.

As the cycle culminates, Mercury and Mars are together in Virgo, each forming a buzzy, electric trine to stationing Uranus Retrograde. 

A grand Air trine with Venus in Libra, Saturn Retrograde in Aquarius, and the North Node in Gemini perfects about 24 hours after the Full Moon, adding an interesting backdrop and heavy emphasis on the Air element all weekend.

Full Moon in Scorpio: Muse of Tragedy & Resonance

Full Moon in Scorpio

The Full Moon in Scorpio occurs on Monday, April 26 at 8:32pm Pacific Time. At 7° 06′ of Scorpio, this Full Moon corresponds to the 5 of Cups (a decan of Mars). The Lord of Disappointment deals with negative emotions, such as loss, grief, and angst.

Mars rules the New Moon and the Full Moon for the current Lunar cycle (April 11 through May 11), bringing passion, desire, conflict, and assertive/decisive action to the forefront thematically. This is our drive to act, our source of willpower, physical movement and sexuality. Mars inspires independence, survival, self-sufficiency, strength, and courage in the best of times. Aggression, violence, control and imposed willpower are also under his domain.

The New Moon began in Mars-ruled Aries on April 11 and reached a point of significant development with the First Quarter Moon in motivated Capricorn on April 19. We may feel highly determined during this Moon cycle, driven by our hunger for something worldly – whether that’s love, money, or the promise of attaining something more abstract. Of course how you feel individually will have a lot to do with how it interacts with your birth chart.

February 2021 Astrology (Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius!)

Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius (January 30 – February 20)

Mercury stations Retrograde in Aquarius (26° 29′) on Saturday, January 30, 2021. February 20 will bring the end of Mercury Retrograde (11° 01′), although the total shadow period is January 14 through March 12.

This Mercury Retrograde period happens about three times a year. Visually in the sky, Mercury appears to move in reverse. He slows down and draws to his closest point to the Earth. As Mercury enters this part of his cycle, it’s as if our minds and daily mundane affairs — which are ruled by Mercury — are operating on a different wavelength.
