Intuitive Astrology: Full Moon Eclipse September 2016

september full moon eclipse astrology

The September 16-17th Lunar Eclipse falls in the watery and intuitive sign of Pisces, making this Full Moon a perfect time to focus on creativity and spirituality.

Mother Moon feels at home in the sign of Pisces. It is in this sign that she is able to express her ideas, her creative thoughts and her deeper stirrings.

The Moon is also extremely psychic and aware when in this watery sign, which means that this Eclipse is going to be felt very strongly on both a conscious and subconscious level.

September’s Full Moon Eclipse is bigger than just this month. Even though this Lunar Eclipse will be working with the New Moon Solar Eclipse of September 1st, it is actually part of a bigger cycle that can be traced back to 2008.

This cycle will not officially end until February 2017, but September’s Eclipse is definitely going to be one of the most potent moments in this cycle. 

September’s Eclipse is going to be highlighting the truth. Whatever you have been shying away from, whatever you have not dared to see is going to be revealed by this Lunar Eclipse. 

The truth will set you free and that is the exact mantra of this Eclipse.

By being able to see the truth, by having the truth right there in front of you, it will help you to make the best decision on how to move forward in your life.

Seeing the truth can sometimes be painful, but it is necessary if you want to expand your level of consciousness and truly live an awakened life. 

This Eclipse may stir up some painful moments or some fears, but know that this is all so you can grow and flourish in the direction that you need to. 

If things come up around the Eclipse, if things are brought to your attention, don’t ignore them. Know that you are strong enough to see the truth; know you are strong enough to handle the truth.

While this Eclipse is helping to release the truth, it may also release any angers or frustrations that have been simmering beneath the surface. Emotions will be very high around this Eclipse and it may be difficult to see clearly at first.

Know that the best way to channel this energy is into something creative. Writing, art and music are all excellent ways to channel any anger, frustration or heightened emotions that appear. 

The tendency with this Eclipse however, will be to lash out at others, particularly those who are closest to you.

Be mindful of what you say to others around this time. Be mindful of lashing out at others for no good reason. Be mindful of taking your anger and aggression out on those that you love. 

While anger and aggression need to be expressed in order to be released, it may help to think about channelling these emotions into something creative or productive. 

Relationships will also be highlighted during this Lunar Eclipse. If there is something that you have not been seeing, if there is something you have been turning a blind eye to in your relationships, this Eclipse may force you to finally deal with it once and for all. 

If you have been unhappy in any relationship in your life, you may also find that the Eclipse brings some new information to the surface that will help you to make a decision. 

If people exit your life around an Eclipse, it is often a strong indicator of a karmic bond that has served its time. 

Know that whatever comes your way on this Eclipse won’t officially be wrapped up until February 2017, however all the closure that you need for now will be delivered. 

Ultimately, this Lunar Eclipse is going to bring a feeling of completion and will be helping you to finally feel at peace with all of the energy that 2016 has delivered so far.

While the energy of the Eclipse will take a few weeks to simmer down, there is going to be smoother sailing after this.

In fact, following the Eclipse, the Universe is going to be offering beautiful and gentle energy that will definitely bring relief. 

September’s Lunar Eclipse is really about re-setting the dial and will help you to shed and pull back all the layers that you no longer need.

This Eclipse will be helping you to find the truth of your soul and the truth of your heart so you can make the best decision moving forward. 

This Eclipse may leave you feeling raw and exposed, but trust that this is an amazing time of growth and renewal. This Eclipse is the budding flower moment, and will help all of us to realize and express gratitude for just how far we have travelled. 

Be at peace with whatever blooms for you, trust in your intuition and instincts and know that the best way to channel all that this Eclipse brings you is through your creativity and your spiritual connection. 

In fact, if you can be aware, if you can rise above any fears or anxieties, you will be able to see the beauty of it all. You will be able to feel the amazing and unlimited support and guidance that the Universe is offering you. 

There is nothing here but growth, so allow these energies to move you, allow these energies to shift you, allow these energies to release all that you no longer need, and open your heart, mind and third eye to the truth. For the truth will set you free.

  • Jamael Rahill

    Where have you been all my life Tanaaz? Thank you 🙂

    • haha you are so welcome Jamael!

  • deloresfromwarren

    Wow! I have my natal Mars at 23 degrees Pisces and this eclipse/full moon is at 24 degrees Pisces. No wonder I feel so emotional and weepy over the unalterable ancient past.

  • Carolzf

    Hi Tanaaz. How did this 2008 bigger cycle begin? Thank you.

  • Jerri Lynn Silver

    Why do I keep holding on to the fear that paralyzes me, that makes me agoraphobic, that keeps me from participating in life? I really need advice!

  • Eliane Delage

    this has been the worse time in a very long while, something terrible happened the day of the damn eclipse, someone really close to my heart walked away, is there ever going to be a return?

    • it is hard to say, but trust that there could be a higher reason for this, perhaps now that some time has settled, you are seeing the bigger picture?

      • Eliane Delage

        Not quite yet but I am certainly trying. Thanks for the reply,

  • Eliane Delage

    do I have to wait until February for a chance of repairing a friendship?

    • no you definitely don’t have to wait till feb! but you may notice themes playing out till then. 🙂

      • Eliane Delage

        I read at astrology zone that my only chance to repair what happened in this eclipse (and it was so intense and it happened the day of, so precise…) was to wait 4 months to the day of the eclipse because of some trine of some sort and even that is a slim chance… I was curious to your thoughts on it, there aren’t many people who I could ask about that, everyone thinks I’m totally nuts.

        • hahah i love susan miller! but I also think we have the power to make change where we want to make change. this relationship broke away because things weren’t working, so something needs to shift in order to bring it back together. that shift has to start by someone taking action. the planets will support you. look at the planets as your backup dancers, they support you but you have to take the lead. hope that helps!

          • Eliane Delage

            I love Susan Miller too, have been reading her for years and it’s always so spot on that’s why I’m listening to this advice and waiting for the 4 months but it’s killing me. I love your metaphor about the back up dancers, I’m going to add back up singers as well 🙂 I know a shift is needed and I am working on it, I just don’t want to lose the amazing inspiration that we were able to provide each other through this friendship. Thanks a lot for your input!
