I am most certain that everyone reading this has been experiencing the stretching, mutating and shape-shifting brought about by the culmination of the energies of the past eighteen months or so.
The full moon of September is considered the “Harvest” Moon. This full moon is the last of the three Supermoons of 2014, and it has a special quality about it, a dis-lodging effect so to speak. Also featured this month, we have the equinox and change of the ruling seasonal element, the ongoing transit of Pluto in Capricorn (Western astrology), which equals extreme (radical) change, and Pluto is stationing to go direct in a couple of weeks. This can be a very exciting time or a time of OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder); refrain if possible from the latter.
This full moon occurs at 16 degrees Pisces (in Western astrology) 19 minutes on Monday, September 8 at 9:38PM EST, 7:38PM for us in Guatemala. It occurs on 6 Kame (Death) on the sacred calendar Maya, which accentuates the theme of Transformation. We are six days into a new round of the 260-day Sacred Tzolkin calendar, which recently recycled on 1 Crocodile The sun being in Virgo (in western astrology) only adds to the mix.
Remember, the full moon breaks impasses, and this one in particular is clearing out logjams. So if a flood of emotion comes over you, the subject is relevant. It is also what needs to be cleared and processed, so it may or may not seem relevant to you or equal to the amount of emotion coming up. If it has anything to do with something or someone “outside” yourself and the answer has not been apparent, look at how it applies to you, for therein a clue may lie.
Check things off your list that are getting done, things that have been cleared away. Give yourself a pat on the back for having made it this far with your transformation. The next few days will show you what else needs to be done.
As I have stated many times, be gentle with yourself and others; if you can’t be nice, then refrain from being around people. If you don’t enjoy your own company, what makes you think others will? Get comfortable with yourself first. Sit firmly in your own skin and be realistic about your current situation (without criticism). State out loud what you want for yourself, and be open to the information that comes on how to achieve that state, then act on it.
Hang in there and keep it positive! Do something special for yourself!
Blessings on this Full Moon and the for the month of September…
Transformation is at hand!
