Pisces Moon

With the Pisces Full Moon energy still resonating and a stream of beautiful Pisces Moon souls flowing into my life this week, I thought I’d update and expand this little piece from the Facebook page. Hope you enjoy!

Moon is the inner self. It’s how we feel on a day-to-day basis. How we nurture ourselves and others and how we allow ourselves to be nurtured. The transiting Moon (where the Moon is on any given day) will tend to be an emotional filter for how we experience the world. For example on an Aries Moon day, you’ll probably notice that people are driving much more aggressively than usual. On a day where the Moon is in Cancer, you may find childhood memories pulling you strongly into the past or crave the ritual of cooking a nice pot of soup or baking cookies.

Pisces Moon is ultra-sensitive to the immediate environment. Pisces is the sign of oceanic emotionality, of universal emotional connectivity. Which means that under the Pisces Moon, our visionary compassion is stimulated – we tend to feel more than ever that we are All-One. But the negative side of this transit is that we tend to be extra susceptible to bleed-through from the emotions of the people around us. It can be hard to tell which feelings are properly “ours” and which are feelings we’ve picked up from the people around us.

All of these qualities apply to Pisces Moon natives (Pisces Moon in your birth chart). Pisces Moon people, whatever their outer demeanor may be, are ultra-sensitive on the inside. Pisces’ biggest challenge is its inherent lack of boundaries, and learning how to have appropriate boundaries and to get (and stay) grounded can be a lifelong task for Pisces Moon people.

Pisces Moon is also easily influenced by entities in the astral realm – my feeling is that Pisces Moon people can, especially earlier in life, have a much harder time than other people with addiction – to drugs and alcohol, sure, but also and perhaps more frequently to energy vampires and to the kind of sexuality and/or fantasy that promises union with the Divine but ultimately leaves the native drained, depleted and disillusioned.

Where Pisces Sun natives are especially prone to physical addiction (Sun = the body), Pisces Moon natives are more drawn to psychological or emotional addictions. [This is a fine line, but seems to have validity in my experience. If you’re the proud owner of a Pisces Moon, I’d love to hear your comment.]

Pisces feels so comfortable in the astral realms that the temptation to repeatedly use marijuana, alcohol or sex to escape into these dream-spaces can be a major block to moving forward in real life. Learning to use creativity, nature, meditation, visualization, mantra, energy work, etc., as portals to the higher realms of consciousness can greatly restore Pisces Moon people’s energy and self-confidence because it enables them to journey without paying the high price of having their energy drained by the entities that can come in when we use drugs, alcohol and sex to force open the aura.

The Need to Own Your Energy

One of the biggest challenges for Pisces Moon natives is owning their own energy. Because her aura is so naturally permeable, the Pisces Moon native tends to soak up the psychic energy of the people around her. Pisces Moon people often become overwhelmingly tired when they are stuck with people who are in a negative emotional state. This is especially true of close relationships but also extends to situations such as a negative work environment or even a city that is going through tough economic times or high crime and where the majority feeling tone of the populace is one of fear, negativity and despair.

Feeling energetically drained is a clear sign that your Pisces Moon is feeling overwhelmed, either because you’re allowing another person or entity to suck your energy or because you’re taking on the emotions or energy of another person or entity. (It takes a lot of energy to hold someone else’s negative emotions in your body!)

I always tell my Pisces Moon clients: “You have a right to your own energy. No matter how much someone else appears to be suffering, you are not helping them by letting them drain your life energy. And you’ll never be able to manifest your own destiny until you learn how to hang on to your energy.”

The Pisces Moon has its advantages. Not only are these people able to experience moments of transcendent beauty that few of us every attain to, the Pisces Moon can operate like a secret spy network for these people. Their extraordinary ability to psychically tap into the emotional currents of people and of the world and to see in the astral realm gives them a sort of sixth sense about what is going to happen next. For Pisces Moon people to thrive, however, they must develop a daily grounding and centering practice that enables them to:

  • Check in honestly with their emotions;
  • Discern which feelings are properly “theirs” and which feelings are emotional imprints they’ve picked up from others; and
  • Cleanse themselves of toxic emotional build-up and replenish their energy by grounding into the Earth.

Mastering their own energy won’t make these people less sensitive. But it will enable them to use that sensitivity to help their own cause, rather than depleting their energy to every energy vampire and hungry ghost that wanders through the room.

Tips & Tricks

  • There’s a great little book called The Art of Psychic Protection by Judy Hall with a whole bunch of easy and effective visualizations for cutting ties to energy vampires and grounding yourself in a healthy way. She also mentions stones and flower essences that help with specific conditions.
  • One of my mentors, New Orleans Psychic Cari Roy, recommends carrying a piece of petrified wood in one’s left pocket and a piece of red jasper in one’s right pocket. I found this practice tremendously helpful in learning to navigate the highly-charged psychic environment of New Orleans without being totally swamped.
  • I also recommend the black stones — tourmaline, jet, onyx, obsidian — for reflecting away negative energy. Just remember to clean your stones of accumulated energy occasionally by “smoking” them with sage, washing them under running water, etc.

    Hi. This article really helped me understand exactly why I am so attuned to other people’s emotions and energies. My intuition runs really high too and if I’m not careful to keep grounded thru meditations and prayer, I tend to get lost in my thoughts and daydreams. It’s important to keep a good balance. Im Leo/Pisces/Leo and Im super glad I was created that way. :) I’m pretty fiery but the Pisces moon keeps me in check and quite compassionate.

    Being an Aries sun sign I could never quite understand why I didn’t fit the profile entirely until I learnt I was a Pisces moon!!! I’ve always felt that I could be two very different things, confident sometimes and other times not. Always have been able to pick up on others emotions and have a hard time hiding mine. The comment about feeling tired and drained from over whelming emotions is me too although I do seem to have an inner strength to recover which must be the Aries coming through. Really interesting article thank you.

    I am An Aries with a moon n Pisces I truly relate to what this article states sometimes I just get random feelings and emotions that I know are not my own because it contradicts the way I was thinking up until that moment I am a person who can easily conversate with someone and right away know what to say and how to relate to the situation. I see myself a bit in every situation or person and am easily distracted and lured away in relating to others situations. I always have a hard time feeling grounded and balanced and meditation is needed for me everyday to feel normal I find that balancing my chakras drinking tea and the occasional run do a lot to help me feel more balanced I have also struggled in the past with needing emotional security and sometimes escaping into romantic innuendos if that’s the right word in order to fill voids in my life

    I am a Pisces Moon and Pisces Sun & Cancer Rising. All H20. 😉 This article rings true for me as well. I have always had a hard time with depression – being around other people that were depressed or unhappy all the time. Once I removed the negative people from my life and after years of practicing how to hold on to my own energy – I am at great peace and happy.

      Wow, that’s a lot of water. Great call on how strongly negative people affect not only Pisces Moon but all the water signs. Way to go Mandi! I was depressed for many years (Pisces Sun 7th House) and thought I had chronic fatigue or something like that. When I finally learned how to stop taking on others’ emotions – still a work in progress – and distance myself from draining people, my life got a whole lot better. Good to hear success stories like yours. Peace on!

    I am a Scorpio sun, cancer rising & Pisces moon (in 9th house) thank you for the read…I feel that I am more emotional addictive than physically I have been told I am argumentative a lot, I wish I knew more about energy clearing because I feel like a mess a LOT..but then I think is that because I have a Scorpio sun…or a stellium in the 5th?

    Hi, I am a Taurus sun, Gemini ascending, and Pices moon. Lately, well my whole life, I have been questioning the world around me, now that I am 21 I have started to question my own actions and have turned to astrology for answers. You’re description of pieces moon has me understanding more about my addictions to substances that I have recognized is bad for my soul but difficult to stop. I’ve been sober for a couple weeks now and I feel this rush of life in me that is wonderfully intoxicating! I wonder how I fight the urges, but also I want to learn more about what these signs represent in my life. I’m graduating college with a BFA in Studio Art, I focus in painting, and I’m looking into other colleges for a graduate program. I can’t help but to think I have so much more to learn about myself that could greatly help me. I also have strong spiritual feelings in the world around me, things I can’t understand. Like for instance, my grandmother, who basically raised me and knew very little English as she escaped from Cuba has had a lasting impression on me. She passed when I was about 12 and ever since then when I’m having a difficult time in life, I believe she comes to me in the form of a butterfly. As a child we would go on walks and she would always point out the butterfly’s and called me mariposa because I would run around the house like a butterfly. I miss her greatly, but I want to know more about the ways in which she connects with me spiritually. I use to think I sounded crazy for a while, but now I have grown to love it. I’m not sure exactly what you can offer, I wish to speak with you in person as I feel like you would have the best insight into my life based on the signs I was given at birth. I know all together they mean something bigger than I can understand but I’m hopeful as to find out what that is exactly.. I hope my comment doesn’t sound like my mind is at a million different places at once but I wanted to get that out there, as those are the things that I’m looking to either overcome or to learn more about. Any insight would be helpful! Thanks

    Hi, I am a Leo sun sign and a pisces moon.
    I generally have a very optimistic outlook when in action-And I look for the best in people. And am understanding to a fault.
    I have been called niave for being so positive.
    People think I don’t pick up on things, however I do, but because I believe people are generally good intentioned, I don’t speak on it. Which tends to end badly because not everyone is respectful or giving, instead they take my kindness and understanding and take advantage of it.
    It is my mistake for not speaking my truth.
    Which I do, a lot.
    Sometimes, I feel mad vulnerable.
    Basically ‘becoming’ the person I am with.
    All consuming.
    Bad things result.
    But when I check myself and realize I am all feeling and no presence from myself-I then come out of it
    Come out of my head and then I am present.

    I find my power by speaking on my feelings and speaking on the positives I see in people.

    Any added comments about how to impliment this sensitivity in a positive manner?

    I came across your site as I have been searching more answers. I am a Pisces, always been emotional, sensitive, and intuitive. It seems that through these years my intuition continues to become stronger. My dreams, synchronicity of thinking of others, and sensitivity continue to heighten. After this supermoon in Pisces starting Aug 2015, it was something that happened to me (a personal object of mine) that made me begin researching more what is happening. It seems that I continue to link things together and it all relates.. It actually scares me much. I have always been a dreamer- since childhood. at one point i would lucid dream frequently and even have OBE’s, which i forced to stop because it scared me so much. It seems that i can’t stop what feels like a strengthened awareness inside me. I hope I can get some feedback from you, or anyone else.

    Thanks for sharing this article.. I am 29degree pisces moon with scorpio rising.. My psychic abilities are kinda scary!! I try to work on it but cannot help it.. I can sense who is coming to me and what I will get in next moment.. Sometime I lack surprises in my life – lol.. But I failed to achieve a good love relation.. My heart is craving for that soul mate bonding and my physhic abilities guiding me that he is somewhere near me…

    I am a pisces sun, pisces moon and taurus rising. this article rings very true for me, especially the physical and emotional addictions. It is a battle every day but becoming aware of my emotional dependencies meant that i could began to deal with them, and eliminate negative realtionships that continued to way me down. One thing i continue to struggle with though is my very prominent ‘fantasy brain’. I find i drift into it way to often, and althought i am aware that what goes on in my head is very different from reality, but it doesn’t help change the fact that i am forever dissapointed in reality. I will always have a preconceived idea of any situation- that i would have played over 100 times in my head before it happened, and in my head its this magical fairy tale, but then in reality it never measures up. I have recently met an amazing man who in the begging, matched al my fantasies, everything i dreamed we would be we were, everything i dreamed he would do, he did, without me saying a thing… but then, istead of just being happy, my fantasies got even more far fetched, and once again im back to being dissappointed, the same with my job. Ive dreamt of being a hairdresser for years, finally stuck my training out long enough to become one, It was everything I wanted it to be, i was winning awards early on, building a strong clientelle, loving my life, then with the drop of a hat, it wasnot longer what i dreamt it would be… it’s exhausting! if you have any suggestions on how i can work through this and try and distinguish fantasy form reality that would be amazing. I am very aware that when i slip into my little fantasy world, that it is not what is going to happen in reality, but it doesnt stop me being dissappointed or weighed down in reality and means i spend way to much time researching flights to other countries, jobs in other states or career changes in general

    I’m new to astrology. I discovered it while searching for answers to why my relationship with my husband is so strange, we fit together in dysfunctional perfection. He’s a Pisces sun with Taurus moon and I’m a Taurus sun with Pisces moon. Your description is so accurate of us: He suffers from severe physical addiction while I suffer from psychological addiction. This discovery has bust open Pandora’s box and I just feel so overwhelmed that I don’t even know where to begin working on myself and our marriage. He is seeking help for his addiction and I’m still trying to figure out where to begin for my own recovery. I fear that my addiction may be so far gone that I may be beyond help. I just don’t know. I’m extremely overwhelmed and drained.I’m new to astrology.

    Iam a Leo. Moon in Pisces. Very psychic. But trusting. I taught myself to use this as positive energy and we all are lucky to have moon in such a spiritual sign.
