Called a "Full Harvest Moon," this astrological event is going to push you to be more compassionate, according to Donna Page, a certified astrologer.
Of course, there’s a little more to it. Here’s what your zodiac sign can expect from the Full Harvest Moon—and how it’s going to impact your life going forward.
What is the Full Moon in Pisces?
The moon has different phases, and you probably already have a decent understanding of them. But, JIC, a full moon basically means that the whole satellite is lit up and looks like a huge circle in the sky.
This particular full moon is called a "Harvest Moon" (or Full Corn Moon, or Barley Moon, depending on where you’re from), which means it’s the full moon that happens closest to the fall equinox in the US (when crops traditionally get harvested), according to the Farmer’s Almanac.
How will the Full Moon in Pisces impact your zodiac sign?
Get ready for a serious boost toward being an even better person (I’m talking Mr. Rogers-level). "It’s a time to connect with compassion and forgiveness," Page says. That means accepting other people and allowing them to just do their own thing.
You’ll also start to feel an extra dose of compassion for the struggles everyone is going through, she says. (Think: Not going off on your BFF for being 25 minutes late to dinner because you get it—traffic sucks.)
Once you’re able to forgive people and let them ~be~, you’ll be freed up to move forward in your life. That’s cool, because the Full Moon in Pisces also gives you an urge to escape your own ish. You’ll just want to be in your own bubble—sipping on a cold cocktail and binge-watching KUWTK. Cue the bliss when you get just that.
This year’s full moon is also linked up with Neptune, which gives it a dreamy quality, Page says. You’ll want to tap into your inner creative genius and just space out a bit. But a quick heads up: This is also connected to alcohol, so make sure you don’t overdo it if you’re, uh, “spacing out” with a bottle of vino.
There’s also some strong Mars energy in the mix, which can make you feel especially frustrated when things aren’t exactly going your way, Page says. Don’t go into disaster-mode when this happens: Venus is also travelling with Mercury in Virgo, which makes it a great time to rely on your friends for help when you just feel…stuck.
What does the Full Moon in Pisces mean for your future?
Well, it never hurts to be a better person, so look for some of that awesome energy to come flowing right back atcha (#karma). Maybe that elderly neighbour you started helping to carry her groceries to her door will set you up with her handsome grandson (or, even better, her chocolate-chip-cookie recipe). Or maybe you’ll just start feeling like a supercharged version of your already amazing self.
Forgiving other people you’ve been pissed off at can also help free up some mental energy, which can then help propel you toward bigger and better things. Maybe you start focusing on moving forward in your career or push yourself a little harder at the gym. As your fave drill sergeant spin instructor might say, "You're stronger than you think"—in every aspect of your life.
When is the next full moon?
The next full moon is happening on October 13th in the sign of Aries. It might make you feel a bit more rushed than usual, but it’s cool—you can handle it.
Until then, just focus on being the best d*mn version of yourself. You're already almost there.
