Appreciate the Beautiful Moments

Full Moon In Pisces on October 9, 2022

The full Moon in Pisces on October 9th looks very favorable. It may serve us as a reminder of the importance to enjoy the moment, to be present in the here and now. This can be a time to let go of fears and worries, and to take the time to appreciate the beautiful moments in life.

The Nurturing Energy of Pisces

The full Moon in this sensitive sign will make us aware of our emotions and connect us to feelings. The water element in Pisces helps us to feel nurtured and supported.

This is an excellent time to heal, to play, to travel, to be creative and romantic. It is also a wonderful time for the devotee to express devotion to God and Guru.

Jupiter (the ruler of Pisces) also transits Pisces, giving the Moon support and a sense of trust. His wisdom makes this a good time for receiving — and giving — counsel and advice.

A Time of Transformation

The full Moon takes place in Revati, the last of the nakshatras. Revati reminds us that we are going through a time of transformation and change.

The mutable signs, Pisces, Gemini, Virgo and Sagittarius, are very powerful at this time. These signs demonstrate openness, flexibility and adaptability.

Because Jupiter lines up with the Moon in Pisces and Mercury lines up with the Sun in Virgo, the two planets express their best sides in great Mahapurusha yogas for all the mutable signs.

A Mahapurusha yoga gives strength to a planet when it is in its own or exalted sign and in an angular house.

The Moon receives aspects from all the benefic planets on October 9th: Jupiter is with the Moon, Venus and Mercury aspect from the opposite sign Virgo, and of course the Sun is also opposite the Moon since this is a full Moon.

In addition, there is also an aspect to the Moon from Saturn in Capricorn, reminding us that we do live in serious times. Saturn gives seriousness and a sense of duty to the mind.
