Moon in Pisces: Why Do I Feel so Sad?

tumblr_ngplrb8Gqy1u638gbo1_1280The Moon in Pisces can generate intense feelings in an individual. It may make them want to shed tears and feel intensely sad. Moreover, it also comes with a feeling of being drained by the energy of other people. A Lunar Piscean feels the emotional weight of everybody in the world and feels drowned by these sensitive and heavy emotions. The individual is extremely caring and compassionate, so their energies tend to be more empathetic and understanding, having much to do with sensitivity – to oneself, and to other people. The Bluest Moon in astrology is endless and deep, possessing a tendency to mirror and reflect the feelings of everybody. The Pisces realm is the key to understanding empathy – our capacity to share feelings.

In the deepest realm of Piscean sadness, there is usually a feeling elicited that something is lost and a painful yearning for it to be returned. Depression is usually accompanied by a feeling of dissatisfaction, tearfulness, and feeling incredibly blue. The Moon when placed in the sign of the Fishes can succumb to a passive feeling, which completely overtakes. The major problem with Pisces is the inability to be active rather than reactive. Hence, when in this mood the individual does not want to do anything. It can feel as if time is passing by effortlessly as the individual responds to the mysterious, puzzling and unseen forces that shape our world.

Swimming in the Ocean of the Unconscious

The Moon in Pisces enhances the emotions and it can feel like one is swimming in the biggest and bluest ocean. Pisces waters reflect and understand our unlived dreams and longings expressed through non-verbal communication.The individual with this Lunar position can become submerged in shape-shifting emotions, mood altering perceptions, and universal love. Moreover, there are also turbulent storms rising from the depths of the soul, overwhelming rationality. The Pisces Moon flows this way and that, helplessly reacting to each and every emotional stimulus, until the emotions are engulfed and one finds it hard to be separate, detached, and unconnected. An important need for Pisceans during these moments is to find time to spend in the unconscious. The dream state, secluded reading, writing, and working on creative projects are ideal outlets. Other Moon in Piscean outlets can involve writing a haunting poem, listening to moving music or spending time alone.

Psychic Abilities

A Pisces Moon is sensitive, emotional, intuitive, and psychic. Lunar Pisceans are mysterious, strange, and difficult to understand. In their universe, things can get distorted, blurred, and misleading. On an instinctive level, they may have a natural bond with the abstract or intuitive. Such people can unlock different perceptions of reality; they are likely to be able to sense the hidden levels of life, soaking up atmospheres as if they were a sponge. The Pisces Moon processes many of our emotions that we do not wish to experience or think about in our awareness. In the deep, inky reaches of many souls, they bring a treasure back upwards and find the pieces of everybody that have been lost, denied, and forgotten about. The experience of such a journey into unknown depths will have much to do with how prepared they are to recognize these sensitivities and to give them the respect that they deserve.

The Boundless Heart

The Ocean, like the emotions, can be gentle or rough; they may see tidal waves, indicating a feeling of being overwhelmed and need to protect themselves from depressing emotions and energies floating in the sea. The ocean is a symbol of enormity and knows no limits. Pisces is associated with the boundless, sometimes non-existent self-boundaries. Poor boundary making is not having the capacity to say “no” when it is not in their best desire, like taking a friend’s phone call when we are too tired to talk. The Piscean Moon, rather than set a clear boundary will just avoid hurting people. Some Pisces people need to stop apologizing and submitting to others feelings of hurt and anger. Boundaries are an essential foundation of our identity, they give us a clear sense of where “who I am” begins and ends.

The Moon in Pisces – Endless and Deep

Pisces is about the things that feed our souls: poetry, music, creativity, and imagination. The energy of the Fishes is prone to be uninterested in mundane things, work and routine. A Piscean needs to feel inspired, and when they don’t have any heart to put into their normal routines an emptiness inside overtakes. Pisces needs to feel work has a sense of meaning, and a soulless routine brings with it sadness, a sense of the dreary and depressed. A routine that is empty and feels mechanical or worn is often avoided. A Lunar Piscean longs to swim in something inspiring, something which lifts the self out of the mundane and into the world of feeling, visions, and dreams.
