August 26th, 2018 IS A FULL MOON IN PISCES 3 DEGREES.
This Full Moon is directly connected to the things that were happening to each person/sign on and within ten days following the New Moon of March 16th, 2018. Big news regarding what was "planted" or "began" around March 16th, 2018 will be revealed +/- 2 days before or 4 days after August 26th, 2018. What were YOU sowing?
PISCES ENERGY: FEEL THE MAGIC
Piscean energy is mystical, imaginative, sensual, and emotional. This is the sign ruled by Neptune, which is the higher vibration of Venus. Venus rules love, partnership, art, beauty, and harmony, while Neptune takes those energies to the greatest levels: enchanting romance (or addiction), transformative creativity (or delusion), impeccable beauty (or illusion), and tranquil balance (or chaotic, drowning hurricanes of emotion). By knowing how the planets are interacting with a New Moon/Full Moon, we can understand how the stars affect events in our lives and on Earth. Luckily, this ancient art has been around for thousands of years and has been documented and passed down to us in the modern day.
ENERGY FORECAST: DIVINE BREAKTHROUGHS
This Full Moon is filled with blessings because Uranus, the planet of transformation, still in Taurus, and Saturn, the planet of longevity and stability, still in Capricorn, sync perfectly to both the Sun and Moon. This is a divine message from the Universe that while things may have been difficult, stalled, or tumultuous for the last few months, we are now again returning to a time when we can again flourish. Over the last few months, we were riddled with powerful eclipses, which we refer to as “destiny” in our lives, as well as two very intense retrogrades (Mars and Mercury). Well, just in the nick of time, the day after the Full Moon in Pisces (on August 27th), Mars goes direct and will no longer be causing delays and frustrations in our lives. Of course it’ll take some time for Mars to rev up and return to normal speed in the sky, but we can be certain the Universe is giving us aid when we need it most. You see, the reason the stars dance at times and do battle at others is because the Universe consistently wants us to grow and evolve. Never once are we meant to go back to the same exact thing – and if we do revisit it or “return,” it’s because the Universe is teaching us something very specific and we must learn the lessons that will lead us to ultimate happiness and fulfillment. This Earth Grand Trine (as it is called by astrologers) means that we will all experience significant, profound and beautiful breakthroughs in our lives that are going to be long lasting and tangible. If you receive a breakthrough in relation to career, expect it to last. If you receive a breakthrough in relation to love, expect it to be something of value that leads you to even greater happiness. The luck is on your side. Last, while Venus makes a difficult angle to Pluto during this time, it is not directly connected to the Earth Grand Trine, so we will merely be feeling an intense desire for intimacy, sexuality, and partnership at this time – particularly because Pisces energy is emphasized. This is an aspect that my friends and I call “the urge to merge,” so just be safe about it (wink!). Do not fall as the prey to overly powerful or domineering types. Instead, a fun way to express this would be to use the excess energy in ways that are productive: make or enjoy art, make passionate love with a partner, or ask someone new out – you’ll likely feel a magnetic, sexual, and powerful obsession to get to know each other. Embrace it! Happy Full Moon!
All things that are hidden and growing will soon come to light. Every dream, focus, and plan is in your horizon. Use this time to lay low, work on things behind the scenes, lay the seeds for things that are not yet ready to germinate -- want to leave your job? Get searching. Want to transform some area of your life? Spend some time meditating and contemplating how you can do it. However, something that you've been doing "behind-the-scenes" for a while may suddenly come to light. This also may affect something startling you learn about someone else -- a friend or an enemy. What have they been cooking up? Act quickly to take charge. You may also be spending time healing in some way, physically, emotionally, or spiritually. Use this time to recharge. Big things are coming.
Your dreams and aspirations, as well as social life, are heating up and you may be invited to an event with great contacts or networking. These people may have benefits to your life or career. What do you want long-term? Make sure to create a plan with steps in your mind to make it possible. Say YES to social engagements, you'll likely have fun, but you also may find a fated connection that you've been waiting for quite some time. The energy of this Full Moon flows beautifully for you, so you will grow from this period – use it to your advantage.
You will be in the public eye, so get ready for the spotlight! All of the career and work seeds that you laid six months ago are going to come to fruition. Major projects, promotions, or press could come your way. You may also experience some fated good news that allows you to strike out on your own in a way you may have hoped for. If you're self-employed, put your face out there and attract the clients you want with profile or prestige. Some of you may also be experiencing non-career related attention: you may get an award, get a major compliment from someone superior to you, or be basking in a breakthrough in a relationship you've wanted for some time.
You will be having some significant developments in relation to your mind, the way you view the world, and expanding your horizons. If you are involved in academics, spirituality, or media, you will be blessed in these areas now. It is possible you may find a mentor who will take you under, or you could receive some startling good opportunities or projects that can push you into new territory. You may also realize you're fed up with the way things have been and you want to fully strike out to take on new things: but first, you need to learn how and what to do. Embrace change and leap.
You will be experiencing a focus on deep union, in any area where you owe someone something or they owe you. This could pertain to finances, such as loans or debts or ownership, or sexuality, such as choosing to dive deeper into a commitment or connection. It is also possible that you have some inner secrets and hungers being revealed to you: what's turning you on? What do you want, when you're not all buttoned-up? The deeper the union, the deeper the connection. Perhaps you need to stand up for what you need to receive. Create the balance you want.
A major partnership in love or business will be in focus, and you may be the one pushing for it or by someone else. This can be about becoming official, taking your relationship to the next level, or even facing off against a rival or enemy. This is a powerful moment for you to consider what you truly want in a partner, or if you already have one, may be noticing your partner demands more of your attention at this time. Give it to them. This special time is important to focus on a relationship that is a mirror to you. If it is a mirror in a dark way, change it. If it is a mirror in a beautiful way, embrace it. If it is a not a mirror at all, let it go. Some of your relationships will end in order to ready you for better things. Do not be afraid. This may also be a fateful time when you meet someone who will become a long-term partner. Be open.
Your work life is on fire! Get ready for new projects, new work opportunities, or any steady work that you've been focusing on for the last six months (your job, your daily hobby, your daily commitments) to come up. If you've put in great effort, you will reap rewards. If you have not, the way you have been approaching work will change and you may decide you're not in the right place anymore. It is also possible you are spending a great amount of time finishing up a big project that is due or is ready for release. Buckle down; put in those extra hours, it will all be worth it. Some of you may have a focus on health/fitness, as well. If you get sick near this time, it will draw attention to imbalances in your body. Are you taking care of yourself enough? Do you want to kick a bad habit or lose weight? Go to a doctor and check it out.
Love and romance, creativity and art, and all sorts of adventure are cooking up for you. The way you've been approaching your romantic life for the last six months will become apparent -- have you been fully present? If single, are you putting yourself out there in the way you want to be? Are the right lovers coming to you, or are you not being true to yourself and to them? A sexy, fun time can come to you if you open up to it and if single, a chance meeting could occur. Shoot that text to someone you've admired. Ask someone on a date. Go out with friends and see what the stars are cooking for you, you'll likely catch the eye of someone just your type. If you're attached, spend time indulging your lover. You'll also likely be seeing the culmination of a creative project or hobby, or may be looking to surround yourself by the arts. Go see a live performance, bust out the paintbrushes, or write down what is in your heart. Feel everything, open your heart. Also: for those with children, you may have a focus on a child right now or some may see a birth or pregnancy pop up.
The foundation of your life is in focus right now, particularly the way you love yourself, the way you build your life, and the strength of the ground beneath your feet. Your family, your "chosen family," your home/domestic life, and Mother/Father may take focus. Throw a party at home or spend time fixing up your space. Some of you may move or have an increased attention to what is going on at home. Perhaps you're considering a new roommate, renewing a lease, or leaving a roommate. You may also notice your parents taking focus right now. Perhaps you may be facing some internal turmoil if you are not at peace with yourself. Do you like yourself? Have you hurt people and need to let go of the baggage? Are you secure with where you're at and where you're going? Face yourself. Love yourself.
Communication is lighting up for you, and you may see your attention on how you can build yourself and your voice. You may notice an edge in social media, advertising, branding, and anything to do with communication. If you've laid writing projects in the last six months, they may come to culmination now and you may finish. You are seeking to complete something of significance right now, and legalities may also be on your mind. Read the fine print. Know what you're getting yourself into or what you already had agreed. Negotiations will be on your mind.
Market yourself, get your name out there, and watch how the stars twinkle just for you.
Money is in your eyes! You have an opportunity for a financial increase at work, a potential new job, or receiving some sort of gift of money from somewhere -- however, this will only happen if you have put in the steady work from the last six months. Know your worth and stand up and ask for a raise, or negotiate some sort of increase. If you're self-employed, offer a sale and bring in more clients or potential for customers. You also will be focusing on your possessions and what you own. Do you want that brand new set of furniture, technology, or beauty supplies? If you can swing it, go for it, and you'll love it! Also, if your money is not where you want it to be, this will be a time when you may have a big focus on that and how you want to increase it. If you're experiencing strain, look for other jobs or opportunities to increase your income. They could be hidden here like diamonds in the rough.
The time has come! You, your endeavors, and your life are in the spotlight right now, so it is likely you'll notice a lot of attention being directed to you -- or you will be at the center of some news or event. This is a YOU moment, so embrace it! With the Full Moon falling in your sign, you will rise to the top! You will likely see the culmination/fruition of many ideas, relationships, or goals that you enacted six months ago. They may fall in any area of life because you will take center stage. Are you Pisces Rising/Ascendant 3 degrees (or +/- 5 degrees either way)? This Full Moon will cause major shifts in your life, too, and may fully transform your identity.
