Pull up Lana Del Rey’s new album and prepare to play it on repeat, because today is the day of the September full harvest moon—which is all about light and preparing for the change of seasons—and it’s happening in Pisces. So basically, get ready to feel all of your feelings.
“This is the sign of spiritual insights, intuition, and supernatural phenomenon,” says intuitive astrologer and healer Rachel Lang. Pisces is counterbalanced by Virgo, “the sign of details, discernment, and order,” which is currently direct, she adds. This combo may have you finding a balance between spiritual and practical. “You could have profound insights and realizations. Then, you will need to find ways to ground those spiritual revelations in the very practical here and now,” she says. This is also a time when your decision-making processes may feel unclear, due to configuration between Jupiter, Mars, and Neptune. “You may not see things clearly. Balance hope with reason, faith with practicality.”
So if you feel the urge to stay in and listen to really dramatic ’80s power ballads tonight while sitting on your floor feeling your feelings and doing a face mask, honor that. Lang says this is a full moon for self care, whatever that looks like for you. “The moon in Pisces urges you to heal some aspect of your life, physically, spiritually, or emotionally. Emotions could surface, but they should be sensed and felt—and not suppressed,” she says. The moon in Pisces also encourages you to access your creativity. “Creative outlets help relieve anxiety, but they also help you access your inner voice, that of your soul,” Lang says.

Also, it’s time to create some boundaries. “Venus, the relationship planet, is at the last degree of Virgo, and she calls you to be careful and discriminating with your time and energy,” says Lang. “If you’re ready for a new beginning in love, you could see an open door, but you’re a little more cautious than usual. Be cautiously optimistic, though, since the Virgo influence helps you break free from relationship patterns that are unsupportive.” And for a more detailed idea of what to expect from the September full moon, read on for Lang’s breakdown.
