Harvest Full Moon in Pisces: Get Ready For The Emotional Pull On September 20

This month's lunar climax will surely been an emotional one. The September 2021 full moon (also known as the Harvest Moon) is rising in Pisces.

Full moons in general are heavy on feelings, but as a water sign, this energy shift is both poetic and sensitive. It's likely to feel more emotional than usual. As we say goodbye to the warm season, we are forced to spend some time with ourselves. Whether that means facing our darkness or focusing on future projects, here are the changes that the Harvest Moon brings ahead.

It's Okay Not To Be Okay

Pisces is one of the more emotional signs of the zodiac. This means that it is very in tune with the negative energy around it, especially after the year we've had. Up to this point, we may have been bottling it all up, especially in an effort to be productive with Virgo's energy.

The Pisces's energy may release an urge to get it all out of our systems. Wether that means a good cry, or connecting with loved ones, it's okay not to be okay.

​On the bright side, Pisces also brings out our passion. It's likely that once you release, you'll find comfort in daydreams. You may feel more motivated as your intuition kicks in over your logic. Let your imagination take over but be careful not to fully put on Pisces rose-colored glasses.

This is a great time to set intentions and visualize the kind of lifestyle you previously might have convinced yourself was too out of reach.

While the New Moon in Virgo pushed you to organize and set rational boundaries, Pisces will balance that out by pulling you towards a more creative perspective. Allow yourself to think outside of the box. If you don't know how, think of a creative form of expression.

As you write, draw, dance bake or engage in any other creative outlet, you'll find yourself channeling ​Pisces unique energy and influencing your mood. Let the passion take over This is a great time to try something new or take a risk. Trust your gut.

A Rise Of Psychic Ability

On September 20, the Pisces full moon will sit closest to Neptune. This not only will pull us towards amplified sensitivity but it might open us up to psychic ability. When caving into daydreaming, we might be able to see the world through a much more colorful and hopeful lens.

Leave logic on the backburner and listen to what the heart has to say. Open it up to getting lost in this outwardly creative energy. Once you let it turn on your inner light, you'll surprise yourself with how much clearer you can see.

The Harvest Moon's Balancing Act

Traditionally the September Moon's spiritual meaning is all about balance and abundance as the daylight and night hours split almost equally. it's a time of rebirth where the trees begin to shed their leaves. It's a time of closure and climactic conclusion as the warmer season ends to welcome fall and winter.

To channel that in, consider that It's a time to honor and appreciate your home. But, it's a time for reflection and gratitude as well, as you will feel deeply with Pisces energy.

Reflect Back Inwards

Collectively, we are beginning to turn inward. We are becoming aware of the natural world around us and as it changes it reflects back on us. We feel these changes so we might as well embrace them. As the natural word takes the time to face on its darker, colder season, take the time to do the same so that by spring, you're ready to bloom with its flowers.

Consider these key themes as part of your intention: gratitude, abundance, harvesting and nature, transitions, balance, and home and hearth

The Fall Equinox: 4 Ways To Celebrate it and Welcome Rebirth

There are two equinoxes and solstices every year. The first equinox is the coming one in September. The September equinox also happens to welcome in the fall season in the Northern Hemisphere. It typically falls between September 21 – 23.

This year, in 2021, the fall equinox will take place on Wednesday, September 22, at 19:21 UTC. In other time zones, the autumnal equinox will begin at 3:21 PM EDT, and 12:21 AM PDT in the Northern Hemisphere. Here is what it signifies and how you can celebrate it.

What Is The Fall Equinox?

The fall equinox, also known as Mabon, marks the astronomical beginning of the autumn season. In fancy astronomical terms, the vernal equinox happens at the same moment in the Southern Hemisphere as the North and marks the astronomical beginning of the spring equinox. This is the point when that the sun crosses the celestial equator.

What's fascinating about it is that at the exact moment of the equinox, the sun shines directly on the equator. Then it continues its journey south or north, depending on the time of year.

It's A Day Of Balance

The word equinox itself is derived from "equal night" in Latin. This is quite fitting as when the sun shines directly on the equator, it splits the length of day and night to be almost equal. It balances out the light with the darkness.

This is why the equinox is celebrated as a day of balance–both for the light and darkness of the day, as well as the light and darkness of the soul.

Time For Rebirth

The spiritual meaning of Mabon relies on the balance aspect of the fall equinox. Just like night and day are in balance, so are darkness and light, masculine and feminine energy, and inner and outer aspects of our beings. The universe may exist outside of us but it reflects within us.

As the trees shed their leaves to give birth to new ones, the time until spring is a time of growth. We learn to appreciate what we once had to thrive for more because to find the light within us, we must first deal with the darkness. W

Make A list Of Gratitudes

To allow for a rebirth you need to spend time reflecting. Take the time to journal or meditate and ask yourself "what can I release that no longer serves me?" and "what is causing me imbalance?"

Then balance those thoughts out by also acknowledging the blessings you have that do serve you, and at least five things you already feel grateful for. This will put you in the right mindset to receive the abundance and growth that you are destined for.

Connect With The Fruits Of The Season

The fall season comes with its own variety of aromas, flavors, colors, and feel. Immerse yourself in nature by connecting with the fruit it gifts us during this time. You can gather your loved ones for a harvest meal. Or, you can connect with the herbs of the season by spreading them around your house and smelling their aromas.

Smells actually have the power to solidify memories so that you can remember your rebirth and refer back to it every time you feel like you're losing yourself.

Restore Balance In Your Home

They don't call it a fall cleaning for no reason. Rebirth doesn't just have to be on the inside. The way you change your environment will reflect inwards and outwards on you. Cleaning, organizing, and tidying up will restore balance in your home and safe space to match the balance the universe is trying to create.

This is why it's also a great time to redocorate and get rid of any items that no longer serve you in order to make the space for abundance. You can readjust your space and routine to match the changing seasons and light hours.

Host Or Attend A Bonfire

A bonfire is a great way to celebrate the autumnal equinox. Not only can you create your own spiritual traditions through music, dance, and the beat of drums but you can use the fire as a metaphor for the rebirth to come too.

Bring an object, a list of what no longer serves you, or pictures of what you want to put behind and let it burn in the fire. Watching it dissolve will give you a visualization of the release that you're putting out into the universe.

Everything To Know About Dating A Virgo Man

Virgo men are quite a delight to date, but they can also be difficult to put up with. Understanding their zodiac sign can help naviagte their behavior from their personality traits to their pet peeves and dating patterns.

Once a virgo falls, they fall hard, and they become quite protective but the journey to get there might have some ups and downs. Do you have what it takes?

He's Reserved And Guarded....At First

​It might be hard to get to know a Virgo man at first because they're quite guarded. They have often been through a lot which pushes them to be reserved and wary of anyone who puts them at risk of being vulnerable. They may not come off passionate from the start because they want to make sure they know what they're getting into first.

It helps them to be friends first. Once they cave to their feelings, they become extremely loyal and protective and let you in on their dark but hilarious sense of humor.

He's Quick To Adapt

As an Earth sign, the Virgo man is grounded to the earth and not to social ties and expectations. This makes it easy for him to be adapt but can also make it hard for him to be in one place for too long. He has an edgy side that can come off as impulsive but is great to have as support in difficult times.

The Virgo man loves to take on life's challenges but that doesn't translate that into matters of the heart. It's quite scary for him to fall in love and risk giving up his freedom.

Even In Love He's Stubborn

The power dynamic in a relationship with a Virgo can be a constant battle. The Virgo man likes to think of himself as the dominant partner. He often comes with a whole set of rules. His intentions aren't to be stubborn but he simply has a system. He likes things done in his chaotically organized way.

Stand your ground because he's likely not going to admit that he's wrong or missed a detail. What usually happens is that he'll analyze your criticism and come back with a delayed apology.

He Has A Way With Words

Virgos a sign ruled by Mercury, which gives him the ability to be witty. His cleverness can be quite charming and he definitely has a way with words.

On top of that, his sign is associated with servitude. That means that when he finally caves to love, he is willing to go to any length to take care of his person, for as long as it's done in practical ways. That means that he'll take on projects or chores to help out for example.

He's Super Organized...In His Own Way

​Another result of being ruled by Mercury is that a Virgo's mind is racing at a 100 miles a minute. This makes him somewhat of a perfectionist as he wants to make sure everything is just right. He wants everything organized. Even if it looks messy to you he has a system and a method to his madness.

When it comes to relationships he can also have high standards that are sometimes hard to meet. However, he is able to adapt his definition of perfection to his love inetrest.

Communication Is A Rollercoaster

​Relationships with Virgos can have really high ups followed by real downs. Due to his need for perfection, he can be quite fussy, and the speed and logic of his brain can make him unpredictable. He can seem hard to please which can be frustrating for his partner.

On top of that, his way of communication isn't always the nicest because it's rushed and ruled by emotion. On the good days, he'll be the best partner but on the bad days, you'll need a lot of patience.

Most Compatible Signs

Virgo is most compatible with fellow earth signs or balanced by water signs. Tauras is able to respect Virgo's work ethic and they are similar in their honesty and bluntness. However, Capricorn is just as ambitious and hardworking. They just get each other.

Then there's water sign Cancer who balances out Virgo's logical and practical brain with some affection. Cancer is emotional and intimate and makes a great team when matched with a Virgo. Yet Scorpios are deep thinkers who love alone time and will have a similar communication style to Virgos.

New Moon In Virgo: Here's What The Transformative September Moon Means

Don't be alarmed if you've suddenly found an urge to color-code your shoe closet. That's just the kind of energy being in the middle of Virgo season holds. However, this powerful energy will hold a lot more for the New Moon, pushing us to do some much-needed soul searching as we collectively spiritually awaken.

Keep in mind that during a New Moon, the Sun and the Moon are right beside each other as they sit on the same degree of the zodiac. The New Moon represents rebirth and is a great time to roll the dice on a new venture. This Sun and Moon conjunction will be at 14° from the sign of Virgo.

No More Room For Chaos

First thing's first, we're letting go of what no longer serves us. This new moon is bringing a feeling of clarity both to our physical environment and to our emotions. With clarity comes order and with that comes a feeling of safety while centered in our environment.

In order to ground ourselves, we will need to get organized in the midst of chaos. This means being tolerant of imperfections and trusting the space in between what we can control and what we cannot.

Cleansing New Moon

As with the rebirth of the New Moon, this New Moon in Virgo is the optimal time for release. At its height on Monday, Sept. 6 at 8:52 p.m. EST (5:52 p.m. PST), as it moves into the Virgo season, focus on setting your expectations rather than caving in to the onsetting craving for perfection.

Under the new moon, take the time to examine every relationship in your life, including to material things, and chose to release all the ones holding you back from your highest self.

Alignment With Uranus Brings Harmony

​The main planet aligning with this Virgo New Moon is a near-exact harmonious trine with Uranus. Think of the trine as a representation of the relationship between the two planets as they align together to form a 120° angle. The closer they align, the more favorable is the relationship between them.

For us that means feelings of harmony as well. It will push us to want to step out of comfort zone in search of a change, and with a hunger for freedom and adventure.

Extra Energy For Intentions

Virgo's energy is already quite powerful but on September 6, in this kind of lunation, it comes with more and even unpredictable energy. It might have to do with the unpredictable planet Uranus.

However, by staying forward-focused and hopeful we can use its power to make practical plans. This intention will create the frequencies necessary to set these plans in motion.

Opposition To Neptune Brings Doubts

The New Moon in Virgo on September 7 is also Opposite to Neptune in Pisces. On one hand this can awaken doubts, and a lack of confidence in ourselves. We may fear what the future looks like and if we truly have the power to change it.

On the other hand, this is kind of questioning is what is required to take a good look at our choices thus far, in order to align with the ones we need to make to lead us on the right path.

Act On Intuition

To get through this New Moon, we must rely on our intuition. Mars is conjunct to the New Moon in Virgo and well-connected to Pluto in Capricorn. This alignment encourages us to act on our intuition, which is often guided by the angels.

The trine between Mercury; ruler of Virgo and Saturn in Air signs in this New Moon sky will be on our side as we communicate with ourselves as we transform and take control of our lives.

Virgo Season 2021: What To Expect From The Focus Oriented Energy Shift

Every Year from August 22 to September 22, the sun makes its trip through the sixth sign of the zodiac, and we enter Virgo season. The sign is known for being a practical, and communicative mutable earth sign. It moves the energy into a time of organization, productivity and self-improvement.

The time during the Maiden's seasons brings an intense energy shift from Leo's fun, luxurious and romantic energy. The back-to-school energy means that the summer is winding down, and it's time to get to business.

The Zodiac's Mutable Earth Sign

Virgo's pragmatic energy is optimal for getting organized and reviving routines to reach utmost productivity. This makes it easier to focus on the work that actually needs to get done. This is the perfect time to accomplish the tasks that have been on the back burner during Leo's party summer vibes.

It's a time to work towards goals and self-care routines that will manifest action. The sign is also associated with wellness, which means that any health or self-improvement elated goals will be easier to transition into as well.

Ruled By Planet Mercury

Virgo season prepares for the upcoming Mercury retrograde in Libra. However as Virgo season 2021 is ruled by messenger planet Mercury, the planet of communication, this Virgo season may bring on longings to others, and even exes. Be careful in differentiating which relationships to feed, and which are just coming from a place of comfort.

The weighted mental energy will ignite a desire and ability to connect with others through more efficient and fruitful manners. This need to connect can also bring on opportunities and expand our networks, especially as we emerge from a time when we were bound to our homes.

Peak On The New Moon

The Virgo energy will peak during the characterized lively energy of the September 6 new moon. That'll be the prime moment of the season to plant seeds for future opportunities and manifest some practical magic in your life.

Keep in mind that the first full moon technically falls in Leo season, but since it happens on the morning of the day that the sun shifts into Virgo, it carries over some of its characteristics. At 29 degrees of the innovative Aquarius, combined with the powerful energy of lucky Jupiter, this full moon will carry a mixture of luck and innovation, making the best time to put new plans into action.

A Second Full Moon In Pisces

September 20 will mark the second full moon of the season, this time marked by Pisces. This time will push us into a spiritual awakening by intensifying dreams, and diverting from Virgo's pragmatic perspective for a moment.

This will be an opportunity to combine logic with creativity, and action with dreams. It'll be a good time to take risks that may seem illogical at first or to embark on fantasies that may have once seemed out of reach. As the sun will be close to Mars, its confident energy will facilitate these bold moves.

Relationships And Money Will Feel More Intense

During Virgo seasons, planet Venus will be moving from its home in Libra where it was at the height of its power, to Scorpio, where it will experience more of a struggle.

This means that relationships, especially ones with love and money won't come as easily. There will be more of a push to step outside the box and to look at the deeper and darker side of these relationships. This time of evulation and transformation will put even strong bonds to the test and make relationships feel more serious.

Time For Action And Transformation

From September 14 to October 30, action-oriented Mars will be in the cardinal air sign Capricon. This time will amplify the ability to remove barriers, including people that no longer serve you in place for new and more fulfilling power moves.

Just like with any new beginning of an earth sign's season, feeling grounded and balanced when aligned with the earth's energy will make it easier to initiate and follow through on action. This brings us closer to our truest selves through a transformation that aligns us with our purpose.
