August 26th Pisces Full Moon

Sunday, August 26th's Full Moon is in Pisces who calls us deeper into the waters of introspection. We entered this Moon cycle in flashy Leo, but now the fullness of our whims and outward passions beckons us to make known the sensitivities and quirks that inform them.

This Moon's message is the Ancient Greek aphorism, Know Thyself. What are we seeking in life? What are we seeking from others? From our career? Our relationships? Our studies? Ourselves?

Before this Moon cycle began, multiple planetary retrogrades sent our best laid plans for the year screeching to a halt. In the aftermath, we have struggled to communicate, to properly plan, to grow, and to contain our impulsive attachments to whatever rebounds we have stumbled into. With Mercury now direct and Mars stationing direct on the Monday after this Moon, our minds are beginning to clear. The way forward through emotional and verbal challenges is becoming apparent.

Pisces asks us to consider the wounds and tender spots these retrogrades have exposed. Let these questions guide you as we journey this Moon together:

  • How well do I mind my intuition?
  • How well do I mind my emotions?
  • Am I being honest in my relationships to myself, others, and my life purpose?
  • What hurts?
  • What makes me feel joy?

You may also use this affirmation to tap into Pisces energy for your soul's development:

"I open my heart to receive guidance towards unconditional love for myself, my life purpose, and the world around me."

Have a safe and blessed Full Moon, readers!
