On August the 26th there’ll be a Full Moon in Pisces, but before look what the Pisces Full Moon means let’s look a little closer at the Moon and what it represents in astrology.
The Moon in Astrology
The Moon represents our inner world: our emotions, mood, feelings of inner security, sensitivity, the unconscious and intuition. In astrology the Moon is one of the most important planets as she is also mother, home, family, feelings and habits and how we instinctually react to life.
In your natal chart (the time of your birth) the Moons location tells you your emotional tendencies while the Moon’s current location as its moving across sky impacts on our feelings and behaviour in the present. She speaks to us through our feelings.

Full Moon in Pisces
No matter where our Sun or Moon is in our Natal Chart (Birth Chart), we are all effected by the Full Moon in Pisces.
The Pisces Full Moon in is a good time to just let go and relax. One of the best ways is to meditate, even if it’s only a few minutes a day. When our minds are still we are open to insights and for synchronicities to occur. Whatever you need will show up, problems take care of themselves, people will come to you, answers may come from a book, a movie where words speak to you on a level you’ve haven’t experienced before.
The Full Moon in Pisces can be a time of tears and sadness or both being shed at the same time so be aware addictive habits can be triggered like smoking, gambling and over eating, so it’s best to face the issues and not to avoid them.
Don’t feed the dramas, meditation will help you disconnect from the everyday stuff and help you connect with yourself.
Creativity, art, metaphysics, meditation, healing and dreaming all are favoured here. Listen to your hearts intelligence no matter how bizarre it is. If you are in a relationship, job or a situation out of a sense of security now is the time to fine tune yourself in line with your hearts’ desire.
At this time the Pisces Full Moon faces the Sun in Virgo, its opposite sign. Pisces can turn our simple thoughts into vivid imaginations and we often feel ourselves being pulled between our fantasies and reality. The Pisces Full Moon is about bringing our inspirations and principals down to Earth to take physical form with the help of Virgo.
