Pisces Moon

Ocean of Consciousness
Ocean of Consciousness


Pisces is Yin/Passive energy.  It’s motion is toward the center of self.
Its a mutable sign and is associated with the element of water.  Neptune rules Pisces and the 12th house–it relates to the totality of consciousness and contains within it all other signs and houses.
Meditation is a natural Pisces thing. The mind becoming aware of itself–that’s Pisces all over.  This post is about the Pisces Moon archetype and the transiting Pisces Moon. 
…we are luminous beings. We are perceivers. We are an awareness; we are not objects; we have no solidity. We are boundless. 
 –don Juan Matus, quoted by Carlos Castaneda

That describes Pisces… no boundaries. With Pisces its hard to know where we end and the next person starts… the Pisces Ocean. It’s the liquid, flowing symbol of the unutterable mystery that binds us all together.

And with Pisces Moon typically we would feel not only our own emotions but everyone else’s too.

This is especially true if you are particularly sensitive by nature–and you are if you were born with your Moon in Pisces.  But this energy affects us all when the Moon moves in the heavens and enters into the constellation of Pisces–as it is now as I write this post.

Pisces is the symbol of the totality of consciousness itself.

Traditionally, Pisces is associated with mysticism and spirituality… blend that with the sensitive Moon, and stir well and what would we get?

I’ll let you ponder that one for a moment while we continue.

Pisces likes “realizations” and so a Pisces Moon may help you with understandings that are gained by observing your emotions.

Pisces is like … well instead of observing the world; Pisces observes the mind that observes the world.

That should give you a good feel for Pisces. It’s about objectivity evaporating, leaving nothing but reactions.

A bit esoteric so far, right? Well, what can I say? That’s me doing my dance with the Pisces Moon! Empty. Formless. Peaceful.

With a Moon in Pisces, inward attention and less fixation on the “outer world of form” or the material world would be easy, natural. 

Watch out for tendencies toward escapism into unhealthy activities. While clear thinking isn’t the territory of a Pisces Moontime it is conducive to music, inspiration and creativity.  One could be drawn to ocean visits, swimming, dancing — or wallowing in self-pity if imagination isn’t directed.

What would a Moon in Pisces be hungry for? What would satisfy the emotional needs?
A change in the way you normally look at and experience the world… Pisces likes dreamy worlds and likes to use imagination. Pisces likes to escape there, escaping from the objective world. This gives comfort to the hungry Pisces Moon… anything to escape.

Pisces is the last sign in the zodiac, embodying all of them and so we could see a full scale of emotional expression… and the ebb and flow of ever-changing emotion too.

Think: Ocean and waves breaking!

With a Moon in Pisces, you (and others) could feel very sensitive, creative, empathic, and imaginative.
Like I said, if you are highly sensitive by nature, you could feel emotionally overwhelmed (picking up on everyone else’s emotions–not knowing for sure which are yours and which belong to the guy next to you).  You could possibly also feel melancholy to some extent.

How do you work with the energy of the Pisces Moon?

Again, Pisces Moon’s offer good days to meditate or to work on creative and imaginative projects. If you are trying to understand another person in your life, use this time-frame to try to tune into other people in order to get a feel for what’s going on with them emotionally. Just be sure it’s not you’re your own emotion your feeling–if you know your own emotional body well, you should be OK. Beyond that, be patient with the dreamy emotional nature and tendencies to go inward which you or others may be experiencing. If you (or others) want to escape emotionally, meditation or contemplation is a good way to do that. Sorry to be repetitive, but its a good point to over-make–leave the alcohol and drugs out of the psyche.  There are other was to be a bliss ninny–try meditation.
These are a few tips and thoughts  on the Pisces Moon–maybe you can think of a few more?
