Full Moon Pisces : Uttarabhadra Nakshatra
Water under the Bridge – Healing, Integration and Moving On.
We have moved through the most difficult part of the year – Saturn has just moved direct in Capricorn, Jupiter is direct in Sagittarius, the lunar nodes are settling into more stability in Taurus and Scorpio. Mars is retrograde until mid November, Mercury will go retrograde for 3 weeks from the 14th of October, however, in contrast the the volatility over the last few months, we can enjoy a period of moving forward with long term plans, re- setting and integration now.
Uttarabhadrapada’s deity is Ahir Budhanya – the deep sea serpent, connected to wisdom, fertility, seclusion and spirituality.
The Shakti, or power of this star is in creating, or finding a foundation – “Uttara Bhadra grants a firm foundation in life, connecting us with the wellsprings of vitality, the serpent who dwells in the middle of the sea.” – Dr. David Frawley, Fruits of Worshipping Each Nakshatra
This Pisces full moon expresses the combined energy of Jupiter and Saturn. These two planets show us the nature of our beliefs and values and how we use that to create the structures and foundations in life.
Jupiter governs Pisces, and Saturn rules U.B. Both of these planets, especially Saturn, represent the structures in our lives, and society. This planetary combination expresses the more gentler, wiser and patient form of Saturn, who teaches through perseverance and wisdom rather than through being the harsh taskmaster.
With Jupiter and Saturn having just gone direct after being retrograde since May, this full moon points to an apex, a peak turning point in the collective journey we have been on. This may be a time of resetting and recalibrating the foundations in your life, creating new ones, or continuing on the path that was set in motion earlier this year. There is a defined sense of relief, many issues can be resolved.
As well as Ketu’s transit through the deep waters of the scorpion tail, this lunar month indicates a time of integration; healing and understanding of root patterns that have blocked you from moving forward in the past. Jupiter/Saturn combination in Pisces says trust in the divine plan, trust the process, trust that you are meant to be, surrender fear and trust, float in the cosmic waters.
The trials and tribulations, delays, disappointments and frustrations all have the purpose of shaking and loosening you from what is limiting your true self. We are rarely in control even when we think we are. The true self is one that is unfettered by the losses and gains of the world – it sits within the world with equanimity, neutrality and compassion, accepting the ways of the world.
Jupiter’s direct motion in his own sign Sag, supports the wisdom and growth which has come out of the breaks and changes over the year. Another way to look at breaking – is to see yourself, and your life, like clay – allowing yourself to be broken so you can be remodelled. Energy can never be destroyed, only transformed.
Tonight and tomorrow, you could meditate on the changes that have occurred for you over the last few months; give thanks for the lessons, they are blessings in disguise, even if it doesn’t look like it now. Do your practice, focus on your intention for this lunar month, stay calm, make good choices, eat nourishing foods and keep your affairs simple. Being near the water may be a good thing to do, even just having a bath.
This moon is a strong, yet gentle landing, a place to breathe deeply, surrender and give thanks for all that Is, and is to come.
