Super Full Moon in Pisces August 30, 2023

Flow vs Boundaries

Service - Sacrifice - Divine intervention?

The upcoming Full Moon in Pisces on August 30th will coincide with its close proximity to Earth, intensifying the emotional pull we are likely to experience. Science calls this a Super Moon. This classification has only been around since 1970’s. If you have a chance, you should try and watch the Moon rise in the East on that day, it will be spectacular!

We are also experiencing the second Full Moon in the calendar month, so it is named a Blue Moon. That however has no significance, Astrologically or Astronomically. It simply means two full moons in the same Gregorian calendar month.

Now if we had a Full Moon at the very beginning of a zodiac sign and at the very end of the same sign that would have significance Astrologically and I would talk about it more. That is not the case today so let’s get on to the Full Moon that we have on August 30th.

This Full Moon in Pisces gives us the opportunity to tap into our inner world, evaluate our spiritual practices.

Engage in flow and allow things to be as they are.

We might become aware in our lives where understanding and compassion should be engaged instead of judgement.

Trusting your own intuition and feelings.

Realizing having alone time or extra time for meditation may be activated for some of us.

Pisces is also wonderful when it comes to hopes and dreams and the Full Moon will illuminate these things for you as long as you find the time or take some time to genuinely feel into your hopes and dreams. This is a powerful way to manifest a better life or certain situation.

Awareness around our connection to the universe and our soul path.

Service to others if you are so inclined.

Awareness around limits and boundaries.

Thanks to the close proximity of Saturn during this Full Moon event we are being asked to be aware of our personal boundaries. Let me ask you a few questions to get you going.

Are you overwhelmed?

Do you need your space?

Are certain people over stepping and asking too much of you?

Have you sacrificed too much for another?

Do you need to create some boundaries with certain people?

Check into these things and others that YOU can come up with to see if you need to do this.

The Full Moon always illuminates something we need to see. So in your meditations or ritual work ask for that clarity. Pisces energy can be a bit opaque or foggy so asking for clarity within yourself is a fantastic way to use this Full Moon.

We could also direct our attention towards releasing confusion, overcoming the sensation of being overwhelmed, and embracing the natural flow of change.

Seeking divine intervention in a situation is a viable option.

Now as many know I like to work with the “Lunar Gestation Phase”. This is 3-year cycle that begins at every New Moon. Yes, that means we have a number of these cycles happening at the same time. However right now we are only focusing on one of them.

Get out your journals and look back to these dates.

New Moon on March 2, 2022 at 12 Pisces. What did you begin at this time?

The start of each lunar gestation phase begins with a New Moon, which brings awareness to new events within a fresh Zodiac sign. It presents an opportunity for learning and exploration. Engaging in activities aligned with the Zodiac sign of the New Moon, as well as its house location for you. At this stage, we usually don't know the outcome of what we're initiating because both planets are at the same place in the zodiac and have a similar perspective. It's akin to planting a seed, where the results will unfold over time. The heightened awareness gained from setting goals and intentions during this New Moon will unfold over a period of nine months, leading up to the First Quarter Moon, which will be at a similar degree. Therefore, it's important to sow ideas and embark on new ventures that feel inspired and aligned with the qualities represented by the corresponding Zodiac sign.

First quarter Moon November 30, 2022 at 8 Pisces. This is a turning point in the phase. What was sprouting and got your attention?

Nine months after the New Moon, we reach the First Quarter Moon, (some calendars will call this the Second Quarter Moon) which occurs at a similar degree as the New Moon. This phase serves as a turning point marked by the square aspect between the Sun and the Moon. It's common to experience stress and struggle striving during this stage of the lunar gestation phase. While there is heightened activity and courage, challenges also arise. These struggles often lay the groundwork for a significant leap forward at the subsequent lunar phase, which would be the Full Moon nine months later. By this point, we have become actively engaged in the endeavors initiated during the New Moon nine months ago, and the results of our efforts begin to manifest.

Now we have returned to the Full Moon and you can go back to the top and re-read everything with pen and paper in hand. Make notes for your Full Moon ritual.

In regard to the Lunar Gestation cycle. Nine months after the 1st quarter Moon we have The Full Moon it's now ready to reflect everything it has learned over the last 18 months. During this phase, the focus shifts towards social matters, personal relationships, all kinds of partnerships as well as our connection to the public. As well as the Pisces theme we have covered today. We attain a state of complete awareness, as there is usually nothing left to be unveiled.

At this point, everything we initiated during the New Moon becomes fully visible, and we gain a comprehensive understanding of what our efforts, which began 18 months ago, have achieved. It becomes a time of confronting challenges head-on and realizing the extent of our accomplishments.

Write out what it is you now know you are working on that is working out well for you and continue that trend. Also notice the things that are no longer working and taking up way too much time and write them out on a loose piece of paper then release them in the way that best suits you. Most people use fire to release but since this is Pisces, I might suggest you place your pieces of paper in water and let them dissolve. Just a thought.

That’s it for now. If you would like additional insight into this Full Moon come and watch the video forecast on my You-Tube channel or business Facebook page. Sometimes when I am talking, I get info that comes through at that moment. For me it is much easier to talk things out than write them. I think is because I can talk faster than I can type. The flow is easier for me when I talk.

How is it for you?
