This week we’re gifted with a beautiful healing Full Moon energy to balance out the cosmic heaviness of the past couple months.
On Friday September 13, we have a Full Harvest Moon occuring in the sign of Pisces. This is a time to prepare for and receive a huge healing in your life on a spiritual and emotional level.
Neptune is taking centre stage (as the modern ruler of Pisces) this week so you can expect to receive spiritual healing in your dreams, emotions, even through your visions and fantasies.
How this shows up for you depends on where Pisces sits in your personal chart (see Rising Signs below).
The planet Neptune is the higher octave of Venus – it’s love, compassion, pleasure and enjoyment combined with deep spirituality. It represents a higher love and wisdom available to us beyond material venusian desires.
Piscean energy is symbolic of the culmination at the end of the journey. It’s the 12th sign in the zodiac, the last sign, so it represents the spiritual wisdom attained while travelling through the other signs.
In our own personal journeys we all come to a similar conclusion: that love, in the higher sense, is what we’re here to give and experience. Almost every spiritual teaching ancient and modern leads us to this understanding.
So higher love is a big theme this month combined with the possibility of receiving an emotional and spiritual healing and rebirth.
During this Full Moon, spend as much time as you can in water, near water, cleansing and purifying with water, and drinking lots of water. It could even rain more than usual!
Be clear what area of your life you’re ready for this deep soul healing and rebirth and practice ritual to let go of what no supports your highest good. Connect with your spiritual self and ask for insight to lead you forward gently.
Pisces is compassionate, soft and kind and connected to the goddess Aphrodite. Be those things with yourself this Full Moon. Take time to nurture you.♡

Full Moon Ritual – best done under the bright light of the moon
- Have a pen and paper handy
- Take some time to meditate by listening to some music, using a mantra, anything that works to get you into a meditative space
- Close your eyes and feel deep into your heart – don’t rush this process, really feel into it
- When you feel ready to write down one area or specific thing in your life it’s time to let go of (ideally related to where the full moon is happening in your chart, see your Rising Sign above).
- Have a container of water nearby, and burn the piece of paper (use tweezers to hold it without burning your fingertips). As it burns really imagine letting it go.
- After you’ve let it go, cleanse – bath with rose petals, salts, crystals, feel the energy of this issue, pattern, person, whatever it is really drain from your system as the water drains.
- Put on some nice fun dancey music
- Dance in the moonlight!
- Pull some tarot or oracle cards for advice for the next month until the next full moon (‘What do I need to know about the next month?’)
WHAT is a FULL MOON?
A Full Moon occurs when the sun and moon are opposite each other. This creates a sense of tension. It’s when the sun shines the most light on the moon. The Sun is our conscious and the Moon is the unconscious. So, it’s an ideal time to LET GO and to bring the dark into the light to be released.
Every Full Moon is a chance to a look back at the intentions you planted two weeks ago during the New Moon. What were they? How have they manifested? Are you taking action toward them? Now is the time to reassess and release anything standing in the way of your hearts desires. The two weeks between the New and Full Moon is a great time for new beginnings. The two weeks after the Full Moon is time to let go.
When we plant our New Moon intentions, we can’t just plant the seeds and wait for them to grow. We need to fertilize the soil, water them, make sure they get plenty of sunlight – most importantly we need to weed and pluck out that which doesn’t serve us. The Full Moon helps us ‘pluck’ out the weeds.
When the moon is full, a light shines on the areas of our lives it’s time to release and let go.
