Full Moon in Pisces August 26 2018 - 8/26/2018 7:56:00 AM ~ Looking Within
On Sunday, August 26, the full moon falls at 3º Pisces decan 1. Fantasy and reality, the spiritual and the material… they may seem like polar opposites, but the lines separating one from the other are often blurrier than we think. It’s a disorienting idea that can make us feel out of our depth—but these are just the kind of waters that Pisces loves to go swimming in!
The Full Moon often magnifies, bringing matters to a head — only some of which we will have seen growing. We need only know that we are in a process, however, to make the best use of this lunation’s available energies. With a Pisces Full Moon, the focus is on the inner world, the rich realms of fantasy and vision. The mind’s critical faculty can discount imagination and daydreaming as frippery or a waste of energy, yet we subconsciously rely on such processes.
The Moon is a distinctly feminine energy symbol, so connections with females of all kinds will now tend to be closer and more needed, powerful, or significant. The Virgo Sun’s role in this Full Moon puts the emphasis on themes of health, logic, and practicality. We may be less inclined to have great dreams and visions if we never take the steps to fulfill any aspects of them. Positively, we can use our subtle, psychic, and intuitive levels of perception to find clearer answers and inspirations, especially in Virgo’s realms of work and health.
This Full Moon provides an opportunity to change negative patterns and achieve (or rediscover) equilibrium. The Pisces focus also presses on the need to ensure that time is made available for purposeful contemplation or relaxing meditation, to help rebalance mind and body together, after which plans can flow more easily.
With the Sun making an earth grand trine with Uranus in Taurus and Saturn in Capricorn, there is a distinct need to examine both the past and the future. Meditation may help us with integrating and consolidating content on the paths we’ve already crossed, as well as offering pointers for the future and our next steps
