“Wisdom tells me that I am nothing. Love tells me that I am everything. Between those two my life flows.” Nisargadatta Maharaj
Gazing into infinity’s mirror,
longing for kindness and peace
… or something sweet.
Mirror moon lights the path within,
be transparent to your tenderness,
… the treat of compassion you seek.
Breath by breath,
be naked with not-knowing.
Admit your vulnerabilities,
can you forgive?
Full Moon fruit of the eclipse seed.
Discontent magnifies flaws;
uncertainty casts fear upon a fragile future.
Replace worries with devotion
to compassion and clarity.
Vulnerability clashes with impatience.
Immediacy upsets assumptions and habits.
Hard facts may seem impossible to bear.
upon a wide field of intuition and illusion…
questioning what is real.
Whisper, weep and sigh.
Can you be in this present moment,
showered in cosmic dust
without being pulled into the past or the future?
Sun in Virgo, discerning. Moon in Pisces, imagining.
Sun in Virgo, serving. Moon in Pisces, surrendering.
Be willing to breathe in cosmic grace and empathy.
Be inspired and lend a hand.
Hold the tension of this full moon;
build a bridge between idealism and practicality.
In the full spectrum of all your awareness,
recognize that you are the sky.
“Faith and doubt both are needed – not as antagonists, but working side by side to take us around the unknown curve.” Lillian Smith
Pisces Full Moon

Life is Messy!
Mercury, retrograde since August 12 goes direct less than 24 hours before the full moon. More about this here: Mercury Retrograde in Virgo Revisits the Eclipse. In effect, Mercury is “standing still”. OK, so yipee “Mercury Direct”, but really, it’s not going anywhere fast at the moment and with this full moon conjunct Neptune, it’s difficult to think clearly. Take it slow. Pay attention to details. Get in your body. Breathe through it. Listen to the glimmerings of your intuition. Stand up and speak your spiritual truth. Sit under a tree. Take a nap.
Intuition is magnified, as well as fear.
There can be frustration with confusion, lack of focus or direction. An expansive light shines upon a need for greater empathy for self and others. Stand in the full moon portal and allow the light of wonderment to infuse you. Ideals can draw us to unrealistic expectations of ourselves and others. Our humanity eventually brings us down to earth. How may we incorporate our precious dreams and imagination into the everyday stuff of our lives?
We’re all in this together.
Neptune, ruler of Pisces is conjunct this Full Moon. A heightened sense of global oneness, connectivity. The shadow side of this polarity can emphasize anxiety, over-sensitivity and fearfulness to the point of an extreme sense of isolation and loneliness. Escapism into a bubble of self-destruction and victimization. Denial of any connectivity whatsoever. We are called to be gentle with self and others. You are not alone.
Higher Octave of Love
Pisces and Neptune resonate with Universal Love. Court the muse. Sing, dance, play music. Feed strangers. Sweep the sidewalk. Give to those who are suffering. See yourself in everyone. Smiles are free. Practice kindness. Melt your heart open to the cosmos. Be Cosmic. Be Nobody. Be Love.

What is beneath my longing?
How may I hold the space to allow for an interplay of practicality and dreams in my life?
How may my kindness for others enlighten how I treat myself?
