September 8th 2014 Full Moon in Pisces
A full moon occurs at 9:38PM ET at 16 degrees 19 minutes of Pisces. In Pisces, we feel connected to our emotions, and let them lead us astray. We’ve been avoiding them with the last few full moons, and now, our feelings come pouring out. They can drive us to do great things, or make us do terrible things. We’re sensitive to criticism, and want to be treated with kid gloves. We hurt each other’s feelings without realizing it. We want to help other people, especially the most vulnerable, and feel more compassionate and understanding of the pain that exists in the world. We’ll help out anyone who asks for help, and sacrifice part of ourselves to do so. Something important could come to an end, a cycle or way of life. We pay more attention to spiritual matters. Pisces rules water, toxins, and feet, so we could see some developments there. If you're a Pisces Sun, Moon, or mid-Pisces rising, you may feels the effects of this moon most.
September 24th 2014 New Moon in Libra
A new moon occurs at 2:14AM ET at 1 degrees 7 minutes of Libra. In Libra, we want to bring some peace and harmony into the world. We’re not up for any sort of fighting, and prefer trying to compromise and find some middle ground. If there’s no need to go to war, we’ll avoid it. We try to be more fair and give people a real chance. We treat everyone with respect and as an equal. We can see both sides to any situation, and have a hard time committing to a decision as a result. We’re polite, have good manners, and present ourselves with grace and class. Libra is the sign of committed partnerships, so we could see people pairing off left and right, hear news regarding love/marriage/relationships, and spend more time with people in one-on-one settings. If you're a Libra Sun, Moon, or rising, you may feel the effects of this moon most.
