Full Moon in Pisces, August 26th 2018 – Deeply Connected
This Full Moon brings some very sweet, very harmonious, aspects, but without turning static. On the contrary, there’s a lot of excitement in the air, feelings, passion, and the real desire to break out of old ways of life and jump right into a brand-new future.
The background of this Moon is the beautiful and constructive contact of Saturn and Uranus. It’s a rare aspect, and only happened in 2017 in the fire signs, and this year in early Capricorn and early Taurus. You can use existing structures, or hierarchies, to promote your individual path, and your innovative ideas.
Those early Taureans and Scorpios that have been shaken up by Uranus’ stay in, or opposite, their sign since May, receive a lot of support by Saturn until October/November of 2018. This is why they are better able to combine the new with the old, the erratic with the stable, and freedom with security. At least this year!
The Sun in early Virgo joins that special Harmony and really lightens up the Sky for everyone with planets or points in early Taurus, Capricorn, Virgo, and, Pisces. You can basically just float. Know that the Earth carries you – you can just BE. For everyone, actually, this is a time to be conscious of the physical reality that sustains you – your body, and the earth. Those two are the only constants while you are alive. What more do you need?
The Moon in early Pisces adds compassion, dreams, creativity and romance to the mix. It’s like, for once, you can really let go, without a safety net, because you feel you ARE safe, anyway. Even if you died, you’d be safe. This is the energy of this very special Earth/Water mix. We are not only at home on Earth, but we also have a much bigger home in spirit, in the unknown, in the cosmos, in divine love.
This feeling is a much-needed antidote to the anxiety and very real material troubles an increasing number of people are in. This won’t get better during the “Saturn-and-Pluto-in-Capricorn” years, 2018-2020. But there are several factors that point to a way out; one of them is Neptune in Pisces, its home sign. Compassion, and connection to a higher power, bigger truth, and the web of life, may be the one thing that make the biggest difference, now and in the next years. The Full Moon will make you feel this!
Apart from this, the time around the Full Moon also is a much-deserved break after this Summer’s crazyness. Still there are a few pitfalls to watch out for. They have a lot to do with relationships, frustration, control, and money.
Mars is very strong because he’s about to turn direct in less than two day’s time from the Full Moon. And there is a connection to Pluto, and a difficult aspect to Venus coming up on the horizon. This means things can get unexpectedly volatile around the Full Moon. Romantic moods can be shattered by some outburst of frustration, or bottled-up anger. Be careful, as the Sun in uneasy aspect to Chiron makes everyone more sensitive, and easily hurt. You could trigger someone’s childhood trauma, or be triggered yourself.
Venus makes an exact square to Pluto during the Full Moon. This puts oil in the fire. It makes you more passionate, but with the danger of obsessing, and coming on too strong. Venus/Pluto is afraid to lose what they love, and can slip into the dark side of desire. Watch out for becoming clingy or manipulative from fear of not getting what you want. Also, watch any dominant tendencies that do not feel playful, but real. This aspect can bring a very deep connection, but only if you dare to face the abyss.
Wait a Little
Lastly, Mercury makes a weird aspect to Neptune. You may be prone to fantasizing in broad daylight or to just not want to see the unpleasant truth about something or someone. This aspect can also just make you float away more. Just don’t make major business decisions around the Full Moon if possible. And don’t buy your dream car at that place with the really nice salesman either… ;)
Relationships can give you a lot of TLC around the Full Moon, or a lot of stress – or most likely, both. Maybe you want love and closeness so much that you start being pushy, or yield too much. Try to stay balanced, don’t “sacrifice” anything important for being with someone. Because this Moon is not really about romance.
It’s about re-connecting to Earth, grounding yourself, and really becoming fully incarnate. It’s about feeling the connection with all of life, and that includes the wasp on your plate. It’s about becoming real. But real meaning, anchored into material reality WITH the awareness of the connection between everything that is alive. Feel the Earth, the vast intelligence sustaining your every breath, and every step. It’s this awareness you will need to life in the next years. Only this awareness can make you tell real from fake, nature from artificiality, your true needs and wishes from what the world tirelessly tries to sell you.
Happy Full Moon, Happy Floating & Happy Anchoring.
