The Full Moon in Pisces occurs Friday, August 31 at 9:58 am Eastern (1:58 pm, GMT) at 6 degrees. Full Moons represent the culmination of those things that were begun with the New Moon (in this case the August 17 New Moon in Leo, which found us focusing on the hobbies, interests, and ambitions we have in our lives). This is also a “Blue Moon,” (meaning that it is the second full moon within a single month), so it is extra special.

The Pisces Full Moon opposes the Sun in Virgo; we are reminded to check ourselves in the progress we made towards our goals set during the Leo New Moon. Have we reviewed what brought us happiness and success in the past? Do we need to be more attentive to the details of our lives (Virgo’s influence) as they pertain to our happiness? Pisces points us toward being adaptable and sensitive in our needs, while Virgo reinforces that a little structure does indeed help our outlook.
