Giving & Receiving

Pisces Full Moon @ 17 degrees at 5 AM CST, 9/10/2022

During a Full Moon, the Sun is directly opposite the Moon, which creates an activation within two houses of our chart. The Sun and Moon reflect one another. This is why the Moon is fully illuminated at this time and exhibits a cosmic polarity. The energy of the Sun is life-force giving, and the Moon encourages us to receive. The upcoming Full Moon is in the sign of Pisces, and the opposing Sun is in Virgo. Pisces, a tender zodiac sign, is a poetic dreamer with a generous heart. Virgo is a devoted helper who is health-oriented and organized. These are attributes you may tap into this week as you are navigating life. 

When you find yourself struggling, put your finger on the pulse of this energetic pattern.

Mercury stations retrograde the day before our Full Moon on September 9th and stations direct on October 2nd.  A constructive way to work with this transit is to slow down and catch up on things we have put on the back burner or feel incomplete.  Mercury impacts all forms of communication and transits.  Expect delays, and give yourself a little extra time.  Mercury retrograde has a reputation for being a troublemaker, but I like to think of it as a redirection.  

A fundamental polarity that touches each of our lives is the process of giving and receiving. The bedrock of this principle is reciprocity. When we give freely, as our heart guides, we operate from an abundance perspective. When we fully receive, we allow someone else the supreme pleasure of giving. This energetic exchange reflects on one another, creating synergy. Think of it as two of cups energy from the tarot. 

Where there is giving and receiving, there is potential for bonding. 

Consider where in your life you could expand your container for receiving.

Do you reject compliments? Do you forebode joy or pleasure? Do you push away help when it is extended?

Your receiving is essential to someone else's experience of giving. On the flip side, maybe you find yourself on the other end of the spectrum.

Are you only taking and not giving? Do you feel entitled to others giving to you?

Sometimes in our life, we may feel like we have nothing else to offer; this could be an indicator we need to take time to replenish ourselves. 

Regardless of where you are in this process, calibrate your actions to align with your intention. 

Lead with love. Hold a spirit of generosity for yourself and others. 

Sending Lunar Love,
