Stars + Cards: The Moon

Just like the mysterious meaning of the card, the astrological symbolism of The Moon can be misleading. Though it seems only natural that the card would correspond to the moon, it's actually associated with Pisces, the sign of secrets and the subconscious.

Pisces is a mutable sign, which means that its energy is changeable and always in a state of flux. Similarly, the moon depicted on the card is constantly shifting, its shape in perpetual motion. When you draw The Moon, it may be a sign that your life is shifting in a way that you don't yet recognize or understand. Be on the lookout for subtle clues and messages to solve the mystery.

When Pisces is in play, things may not be exactly as they seem. The sign's ruler, Neptune, can symbolize illusion and deception. The Moon is also a warning to watch out for clandestine events and skeletons in the closet. Just as the moon appears in the dark of night, this card urges us to examine what's lurking in the shadows.

But The Moon isn't only about things that go bump in the night! Pisces's ruler, Neptune, links this card to another member of the Major Arcana: The Hanged Man. Both cards are a reminder to hold your horses and contemplate your choices before moving ahead. The Moon and The Hanged Man both herald a time of suspension, where it's best to shift your focus to the spiritual. Listen to your dreams and intuition when these two come up, and you'll find what you need in order to move ahead.

6 Things to Do When the Moon is in Pisces

Hello everyone! The full moon in Pisces is fast approaching. Not sure how to celebrate? I've got a few ideas on how to make the most of it...


Analyze your dreams.

Pisces rules the subconscious mind and our dream state. During the Pisces moon, I've noticed that my dreams are more vivid and surreal than normal. They're also filled with deeper meaning, even if they seem ridiculous on the surface. When the moon is in Pisces, take this opportunity to research the dream's messages, no matter how strange.


Healing others.

Pisces is the sign of healing, especially of the spirit. Be unexpectedly kind. Do something you don't have to do that will make someone's day. Really listen when people speak to you. Do whatever it takes to soothe another's soul.


Nurture your creative side.

Creativity is Pisces's domain, especially when it's used as a vehicle for soul catharsis and expansion. Think up new and unusual ways to express yourself. Use your imagination. During this transit, your ideas might surprise you!


Take a bath.

This water sign loves a good soak. Run a steamy bath with your essential oil of choice, and I swear you won't regret it. Bonus points for making sure you stay hydrated under this moon too.


Listen to music.

Pisces is ruled by Neptune, planet of the arts and music, so listening to your favorite record could lead to new and beautiful revelations. Turn up the stereo, and let yourself float away.


Practice inner peace.

Mystical Pisces knows that inner peace is the key to happiness. The Pisces moon is perfect for meditation, so grab a pillow and a few candles, quiet your mind, and breathe.


How are you going to celebrate? I'd love to hear what you have planned! Share your ideas in the comments below.


PS- Want to know why I chose the number 6 for this post? In numerology, six means love and comfort. I hope this nourishing Pisces moon brings you plenty of both!
