Full Moon: 13 Pisces 53




Generally speaking, a full moon brings revelation, culmination, closure to an issue within the themes of the house wherein it occurs. A fuller, deeper reflection of the state of affairs (moon) is presented to the individual (sun) who then makes the appropriate adjustments and changes. For those with natal placements in proximity of a full moon, it’s all clear as a bell; the writing is on the wall*. The next step is obvious. Yet here we have a full moon in Pisces, conjunct the ruler of Pisces, Neptune, for a maximum dose of whatever the zeitgeist is exhaling. Neptune seeps beneath our radar most of the time. To fully grasp the significance of this full moon, check out some thoughts on the Sea God here and particularly here. The rest of this post should then make more sense.

Ideally, this full moon speaks to a thorough cleansing; of conscious awareness meeting itself in the Great Mysteries and returning with earth-realm tech support. If you can visualise a co-creative plan around these images, you walk on sometimes difficult but holy ground. Flow forth.

The very best generalised thing I can say about this span of days is that it may well allow the majority of us to break free from the undertow of eclipse season. A culmination of personal side effects on the more physical levels of life, so to speak (like, could I start finding my bearings again?!). This much uncontained water can push us floating off again. Frankly, I think a good whoosh is preferable to the endless whirl I have been in lately. By Sunday, may ‘the waters’ recede.

With the moon in Pisces, in Neptune’s borderless lap, the only thing worth keeping in mind is the GRACE that you have enjoyed thus far in life, the blessings/good fortunes that have come to you through no conscious earning on your own part. The most simple kinds of truth are the only ones that count. Kindness with no strings attached. On this humble, broad bandwidth we can venture forth in faith.

Emotional overload – plummeting or soaring – is possible. I am counseling on hitting the pause button when it comes to acting out on any drama that arises with Others. If at all possible, contemplate the opposing perspective after some rest with the aim of best outcome for all. There is a sextile to Pluto in Capricorn, however, a lot of good a bridge does you if you can’t see for certain where to step on! With that said, …
If, within your circumstance, you feel confident and at peace about ‘a way across’ that you see, by all means Go For It.

You can get a bit more traction with the sun; it is trining Pluto: any thoughts, intentions and actions rooted in the common good are blessed and approved by the Recycling King as good building stock – that means you will see real-world results in due time. There is great potential here for increasing your antifragility status (you can find out more about that here). I just saw a quote yesterday in an immigration office, of all places, that seems perfect for this moment,

‘If you are busy judging people, you have no time to love them.’ – Mother Teresa.

Perhaps it is useful to remember that ‘loving’ in this sense can mean being in a state of acceptance of an Other’s composite existence. Just start there and yes, expect miracles. They are somewhat common when you are looking for them and these are particularly magical times!

Common Marriage Issues That Arise in the Wake of Substance Abuse

One of the hardest parts is over. The addiction is subsiding and physical healing is on the way. Yet, the questions lurking in the back of your mind include concerns like, “What if my spouse experiences a relapse?” and “Where does the relationship go from here?” Since roughly one out of every seven Americans faces addiction, these questions are not uncommon.

Families of the addicted parties often struggle to manage their pain throughout the healing process. Sometimes emotional agony hurts much deeper than any physical pain, and many people don’t know how to manage a post-addiction marriage. For those couples who find themselves in the midst of addiction recovery, here are a few common things you could experience:

Tough Conversations

By now, you’re likely very familiar with addiction-related conversations. Beyond the initial conversations that led to rehab, medical care, or counseling, there are other tough conversations that will need to be addressed. Some of the topics that arise during healing stages could be as serious as infidelity, substance temptations, or how to talk to your kids about the situation. But as one source suggests: “It’s important to find the balance between keeping the lines of communication open and avoiding the conversation escalating into a major fight.” Before you begin difficult discussions, consider the time, place, and circumstances that are involved. These conversations can be healthy, if they are addressed in the appropriate setting.

Forgotten Responsibilities

During emotional hardships, it’s often hard to focus on daily tasks. That’s because stress can cause forgetfulness. The non-addicted spouse may suffer from the overwhelming anxiety surrounding the relationship and might forget basic tasks like paying the bills or going to the grocery store. Meanwhile, the recovering spouse may still struggle with side-effects of harmful substances or become overwhelmed with dramatic shifts in their daily routine. To avoid these types of experiences, try to make lists of the daily tasks that you are responsible for accomplishing and the ones that your spouse needs to complete. If a significant task is neglected, try to have patience with each other. You’re both recovering from the situation and need time to adjust.


Someone who has formerly faced addiction might struggle with frequent temptations. Some will crave the substance long after they’re sober. For others, simply seeing drugs or alcohol in their environment or on TV can trigger a desire for old habits. The spouse who isn’t tempted by these things should still be cognizant of the other’s reaction to them. The temptation could be strongest during the weeks directly following their decision to remain sober. Consider altering the home environment so that they don’t have to worry about facing these temptations.

Lack of Sleep

As you’ve likely already experienced, relationship issues can heavily impact your perspective and emotions. One minute you’re clear-headed and calm, then in the very next moment you’re in tears or furious at your spouse for something they did. Many times a wide range of emotions can also contribute to a serious lack of sleep. As harmless of an issue as it sounds, sleep deprivation can skew good decision making and negatively impact your relationship. Conversely, one source suggests that more sleep can result in happier relationships. If you’re having a hard time managing emotions on your own, it might be a good idea to seek counsel from a professional.

During this time of relational healing, it’s important that your marriage is surrounded with strong, trustworthy couples or counselors that can help walk you both through recovery. A healed marriage is only achieved when both the husband and wife individually choose to fight for the marriage. As you move toward full reconciliation, be aware of these common marriage struggles so that you can fight through them together.
