A Full Moon that occurs between August 24 and September 22 will be in Pisces. This psychic moon helps:
- Expansion of Consciousness
- Understanding and exploring dreams
- Escapism "getting away from it all"
- Healing the feet
- Focusing on balancing bodily fluids.
This is a very powerful spiritual psychic moon and a great opportunity for divination work: reading tarot/ interpreting astrology. However, Pisces is an inner energy, so a solitary ritual would be appropriate, or a small, closely knit group of good friends, rather than a large gathering. During this moon's transit there is an awareness and appreciation of beauty and art, as well as strong, heightened creativity. Intuition is at it's peak in this sign and realization of life's lesson's or truths sometimes are unveiled. It's easy to swim around lose yourself in emotions now, or to escape in books, or other entertainment of a fantastic nature. As the moon starts to float towards Aries, the mood lifts and becomes more cheerful and outward.
