Your Full Moon in Pisces Horoscope & Reflection, According To Your Zodiac Sign
In the midst of these trying times, the silver lining is that the universe can do no wrong. As the sun shines through Virgo — a symbol of the harvest maiden — all things related to your wellness routine and day-to-day due diligence suddenly become top of mind. We can’t help but take life more seriously when the sun’s transiting through meticulous Virgo but as always, there’s a time and place for everything. Assertive Mars — the planet of action, energy, passion, and aggression — continues to square off with ruthless Saturn — Lord of Karma; the planet of boundaries, limits, and structure — creating a sense of friction when it comes to desires/impulses versus responsibilities/ restrictions. Though the effects of this challenging transit might make things appear more difficult, the unique synergy of Mars-Saturn could be incredibly beneficial in the long run. The divine timing of it all never ceases to amaze me, and the upcoming full moon will be no exception.
Glimmering as bright as ever on Sept. 2 — at exactly 1:22 a.m. ET — in the Neptune-ruled sign of Pisces, La Luna’s glowing moonbeams will shed light on the relationship you have with spirit and why it’s so important to have faith. Trusting the universe and remembering that there’s something much greater than you can imagine guiding you towards your soul’s destiny, is precisely what the essence of Pisces is all about. So in the midst of working tirelessly towards your personal and professional goals, don’t lose sight of the bigger picture. Mystical and chameleon-like, Pisces' enigmatic qualities can seem almost too complex to fathom at times, and for a number of reasons. This mutable water sign is governed by elusive Neptune — the planet of compassion, dreams, intuition, and the universal realm. Just because you can't see something, doesn't mean it isn't there, right? This is what the essence dreamy Neptune stands for.
It’s no wonder Pisces is Virgo’s polar opposite. Mercury-ruled Virgo is earthy, practical, and detail-oriented; it needs to see the facts in order to make sense of it all. Neptune-ruled Pisces, however, couldn’t be more opposite. Slippery and somewhat ambiguous, Pisces walks in between worlds, both in the physical and spiritual dimension. It governs your unconscious mind and dreamworld, which are naturally unexplainable. Pisces' zodiac archetype is depicted by the two fish swimming opposite directions, which represents its infinite duality. One fish is symbolic of spiritual evolution, as it reaches another dimension, while the other represents the human experience in the physical dimension. Having said that, this lunation is here to bestow you with hope and faith. After all, Pisces’ ruler Neptune dissolves all boundaries, which means this is an opportunity for you to tap into a sacred source because, in the end, the connection you have with the divine is ever-present. With this in mind, let’s take a closer look at the aspects taking place during this full moon.
As you know, the full moon phase takes place when the sun sits directly opposite the moon. In addition to being a call for balance, the distinct polarity between both of these ever-glowing luminaries automatically comes to play. Think of the sun in Virgo versus the moon in Pisces; the meticulous process versus universal oneness. Also, during the full moon phase, something that needs to be acknowledged and/or readjusted is brought to your conscious awareness, so don’t hesitate to tap into this potent energy field to release what no longer serves your highest truth. Sitting exactly across the sun at 10 degrees of Pisces, Mother Moon will also form a beautiful trine with electric Uranus at 10 degrees of Taurus. Earth is symbolic of abundance, stability, and sustenance, and since the sun is at 10 degrees of Virgo, it will also be making a connection to Uranus. This gorgeous synergy will inspire you to tap into your personal freedom and intuition, in order to manifest your desires.
Sensitive Venus in Cancer will directly oppose Saturn Rx in Capricorn which will also form a T-Square with Mars in Aries, which will be the focal point. Venus opposite Saturn Rx is about self-awareness and inner peace, but the square to Mars could make the process a bit frustrating, especially since he’s about to station retrograde on Sept. 9. Don’t be afraid to express yourself and tap into your passions, as long as you’re being mindful of your current reality. The sun will also be inconjunct Chiron in Aries, which can be incredibly healing when it comes to cementing your sense of purpose. September will be a month to remember, so open your heart and surrender.

Dance to the rhythm of the universe, Aries. Though this era of your life seems to be more challenging than ever, the peace of mind you seek starts with the right perspective. The full moon in Pisces will ignite your multidimensional 12th house of closure, karma, secrets, spirituality, and boundlessness, bringing closure and clarity to your connection to source, and self-undoing. Don’t stress the unavoidable tedious outcomes of your day-to-day. Release the anxious fears and tensions. Believe in the divine timing of the universe, and surrender to a higher vibration. Accept your current reality and remember that this, too, shall pass. A revolutionary trine between the sun in Virgo and Uranus in Taurus could spark tremendous insight for today, tomorrow, and your future. You’re on your way, so trust the process. Reflection: How have you cultivated a relationship with spirit? What have you learned about yourself and the magic of your daily rituals?
Lean on the people who inspire you, Taurus. You’re vibing at a higher frequency and the full moon in Pisces is illuminating your progressive 11th house of hopes, wishes, dreams, colleagues, experiments, social networks, your soul tribe, and sense of belonging in the world. You’re expanding your horizons more and more each day. It’s time to celebrate your wins and express your gratitude to those who have been there every step of the way. With electric Uranus revolutionizing your sign while forming a harmonious trine with the sun in Virgo via your expressive fifth house of passion projects, this is an opportunity to create something tangible and long-lasting. Don’t focus on the “how” and think about the tools you have access to at this very moment in time. Reflection: Has your soul tribe helped you transcend limitations about your identity? Do you feel confident about your unique inspiration and creativity?
You’ve worked incredibly hard to get to where you are, so don’t let your relentless thoughts get the best of you, Gemini. In addition to going inward with the sun igniting your domestic fourth house of family, stability, and emotional experiences, it’s time to reflect on your milestones and professional accomplishments. The full moon in dreamy Pisces will light up your ambitious 10th house of career, legacy, authority figures, and reputation in the world. Venus opposite Saturn could challenge you to consider the money you earn versus the work you put in, and vice versa. However, more importantly, this lunation is shedding light on your ability to take charge, or perhaps the lack thereof. Don’t let the vampiric energy in your professional get you down. Stay grounded. Reflection: Have the sacrifices you’ve made in your professional life worked in your favor? Are your accomplishments fulfilling you at a soul level?
How do you tap into the frequency of your futuristic visions, Cancer? Do you feel the universal vibration beneath your feet? Something’s guiding you towards a better tomorrow, and the full moon in Pisces will ignite your expansive ninth house of faith, opportunity, philosophy, and inspiration. Having faith goes a long way, the same way maintaining an open mind increases the likelihood of your personal growth. It’s time to expand your personal and professional horizons and consider the infinite possibilities. Though there’s always room for improvement, don’t let an authoritative figure and/or partnership cross a boundary you’ve already set for yourself. You’re ever-evolving and there’s still so much more for you to experience. Reflection: How have your colorful visions and entrepreneurial inspirations manifested themselves? What can you do to continue evolving, growing, and learning?
There’s no such thing as a partnership without a connection, Leo. What relationships are you grateful for? Are they inspiring you to be the best you can be? The full moon in Pisces will ignite your intimate eighth house of sex, debt, death, transformation, joint ventures, and shared resources, bringing clarity to your ability to completely merge with another mind, body, and soul. This multidimensional frequency will illuminate your current commitments, investments, and energetic exchanges. In addition to your soul contracts, revolutionary Uranus will spark inspiration and freedom in your career sector, which could potentially shake up your professional POV. Reflection: Are you nurturing the divine synergy of your intimate unions? How can you cultivate self-confidence and financial security?
Thinking about others (even during your solar return) sounds a lot like you, Virgo. This couldn't be more aligned with the full moon in Pisces, as it will activate your relationship-driven seventh house of one-on-one partnerships, business negotiations, and compromise. You get what you give, but there’s an exception to this karmic equation, which tends to occur when there are expectations surrounding a connection. With Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto Rx in Capricorn in your fifth house of joy sitting opposite Venus in Cancer via your social networks, there could be opposing forces, especially when it comes to your desires. There are plenty of reasons to be grateful for your colleagues, peers, partners, and friendship groups, but the sacrifices you typically make to please others may or may not be reciprocated during this time. Reflection: How have you mastered setting boundaries in your relationships? What have you sacrificed for your personal freedom?
Take a deep breath, Libra. Things could seem a bit overwhelming in your day-to-day as of late, but health is wealth. The full moon in Pisces will ignite your orderly sixth house of wellness, responsibility and due diligence. This will serve as a reminder to stop, reflect, and take a break as many times as your body asks you to. Sure, this may be easier said than done, but prioritizing your peace of mind will certainly make things a whole lot easier. With the sun and Mercury activating your 12th house of unconscious patterns and all things behind the scenes, you could be doing a lot of thinking and stressing, instead of looking at things practically for a better solution. Fears are flooding your mind, but the shadow will soon overpower your daily rituals. Reflection: How have you integrated mindfulness and wellness into your daily routine? Are you making the conscious effort to rest and recharge your spirit?
Doing what you love is good for the soul, Scorpio. When you close your eyes and think about the things you're passionate about, what do you feel? The full moon in your sister-sign Pisces will ignite your expressive fifth house of love, creativity, romance, acknowledgement, and praise. Passion projects and smoldering love affairs will be highlighted, while the sun sheds light on your blessed soul tribe. And while indulging in your dreamy state of bliss and all-encompassing joy seems foreign with everything you have going on as of late, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t prioritize the care-free happiness you so desperately crave. Something beautiful is happening to you as we speak, so don’t let it be camouflaged in your pile of work. Reflection: Have you danced in the fire of your vivid dreams and psychedelic imagination? Are you hesitant about simultaneously thriving personally and socially?
Take a much-needed step back from all the chaos, Sagittarius. If you don’t sleep to dream, at least do it so you can get some well-deserved shut-eye. The full moon in Pisces will illuminate your domestic fourth house of home, family, comfort, ancestors, and emotional foundations. When was the last time you did something kind for a close relative? Or perhaps spent some time in the comfort of your magical sanctuary? Though there could be some tension between your personal versus professional life, Mother Moon is asking you to reflect on the results of your current decisions, responsibilities, and lifestyle. Your current reality is a reflection of your inner world and vice versa. Don’t disregard the value of a healthy routine. Reflection: Are there illusions that have made you feel victimized? How can you be equally as compassionate for yourself, as you are for others?
Say it to the universe, Capricorn. Tap into your genius mind and galactic heart center. You’d be surprised how capable you are of reaching great heights, and the full moon in Pisces is here to remind you of exactly that. Glimmering through your resourceful third house of communication, cognition, transportation, local environment, and immediate networks, this Neptune-ruled lunation is here to dissolve the boundaries that exist between you and your soul’s greatest purpose. It is your destiny to think, speak, and deliver messages from both a logical and multidimensional standpoint. Despite the tedious process of your future endeavors and entrepreneurial ventures, your infinite mindset holds the key to your greatest success story. Open the door to this new dimension, and never look back. Reflection: What can you do to soothe your mind from it being a sponge to stressful undercurrents? How can you integrate your sense of authority with your happiness and creativity?
What is your definition of wealth, Aquarius? When a journalist asked fellow Aquarius and musical legend Bob Marley if he considered himself a rich man, the late reggae singer replied “My riches is life forever.” This makes perfect sense having a Neptune-ruled sign like mystical Pisces governing your pleasure-seeking second house of abundance, finances, and sense of security. The upcoming full moon will ignite this area of your chart, bringing closure and clarity to everything from your idea of stability to your spending habits. The wealth you accumulate versus the riches you contribute will be top of mind during this time, not to mention the boundaries that need to be officialized. With Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto Rx activating your secretive 12th house of unconscious patterns, self-undoing, and all things behind the scenes, the pleasure and financial abundance you seek depends on the burdens you’re willing to continue carrying over your shoulders. Reflection: How have you benefited from your financial investments and energetic contributions? What can you do to continue harvesting your inner power?
Bright blessings, Pisces. This magical lunation has your name on it, and there is so much to be grateful for. Although, in addition to highlighting your mystical territory, the sun in Virgo is shedding light on your committed seventh house of compromise, negotiations, partnerships, and one-on-one relationships. Sitting in a lovely trine with electric Uranus via your mentally stimulating third house of peers, neighbors, and immediate connections, the synergy between Uranus and the sun brings forth the possibility of an exciting opportunity or inspiring collaboration. Despite being one of the most enigmatic signs in the zodiac, you’ve grown immensely this past year, especially when it comes to your social spheres. Having said that, what’s stopping you from capitalizing and benefiting from your colorful community? How could you be of service to them, the same way they’ve been for you? You’re the whole package, and everyone knows it. Stop being afraid to share these magical parts of you with the rest of the world. We need you. Reflection: Are you confident about your eclectic multidimensionality? How can your partners and peers join you on this higher frequency?
