Full Moon in Pisces, August 2018
On August 26th, 2018 we have a magical, spellbinding full moon in Pisces. This can be the most romantic, shimmering and enchanting full moon! Like the silver moonlight reflected in the waters, it can hypnotise you, put you in its thrall or even throw you off course with its magic tricks. Is it true love or illusion? Are you on the right path or merely being played for a fool? Only time will tell. For now give yourself permission to daydream. Let visions and images take you by surprise! Mercury has stationed direct recently so it will be a little while before you know what’s really going on.
This Pisces full moon lends power to your dreams and provides a handy reality check. And if it all gets too much? You can always draw on the sun in Virgo, Pisces' opposite sign, and use a simple, practical task to ground yourself - perhaps some absent-minded dusting? - until the mood passes. Virgo is all about getting down to business, being practical, punctual and productive. Pisces, on the other hand, is dreamy, hates routines and needs time out just to daydream. Both Pisces and Virgo are the two signs in the zodiac that want to help others and to relieve suffering in the world. This would be a good time to volunteer, to connect with those who are less fortunate than you are. Even just sending a prayer to those who are less fortunate than you makes a difference.
August Full Moon: it’s dreamy & it’ll hypnotize you!
At the time of this Full Moon in Pisces, on August 2018 gives yourself permission to relinquish your schedules, appointments, or important emails and phone calls, just for the day or even part of the day. Take time out to focus on your spiritual self, meditate, be near water, and allow yourself to imagine and visualise how you would like your world to be. Some of the answers to your problems and challenges can come easily to you if you free yourself from your daily responsibilities just for this short time.
Studies have shown that if you return to a difficult task after you have taken a break, you are much more likely to come up with a creative solution than if you keep struggling to come up with an answer.
So, give yourself permission to do less, to receive rather than to keep on giving and pushing outwards. This is a time of going inwards: get your answers from within rather than looking outside of yourself!
Embrace your daydreams during this Full Moon in Pisces. This may help you to come up with powerful insights into your future. Listen especially carefully to your dreams as they can assist you in resolving deep emotional and psychological issues. It’s a good idea to have a pen and pad by your bed so that when you wake up you can jot down your dream before you forget it.
Allow yourself to get lost in a movie, a play or some music that’s so absorbing that you forget your problems completely for a while.
Enjoy the world in soft focus!
Good things to do during the magical Full Moon in Pisces
- Give something away that you no longer need or use
- Explore your intuitive or psychic abilities
- Find something you have lost
- Radiate peacefulness and calm
- Do some creative writing e.g. start a romance story
- Study astrology, tarot, runes, or anything esoteric
- Dance, write poetry, paint, play music
- Spend time in nature, especially near water

One of the challenges of the Piscean energy is that can be very naïve. During this Full Moon in Pisces be careful about being taken in by a sob story. Someone may sound so convincing that they need money from you, and this could even be a family member, but if you cannot afford it, or your intuition is telling you not to, then don’t do it. Better to feel a little guilty for a short while than to part with your hard-earned money and later regret it.
Another potential difficulty during this Full Moon in Pisces is the tendency to want to flee from the world you are living in and use alcohol or other mind-altering substances to relieve the stresses you may be feeling. Pisces often doesn’t know when to stop, so if you feel this urge to escape, either do it in moderation, or try to use this energy in a more constructive way.
Will the August Full Moon make your dreams come true?
Give yourself permission to go with the flow of the moment. Fully immerse yourself in the now. Tune into subtle changes in your environment and move just like the Piscean fish, freely and easily. So many of the limitations we place on ourselves are self-created. Use this Full Moon in Pisces to see your world without boundaries and responsibilities. See the interconnectedness of everything on our planet and beyond.
