I always love the energy of the full moon – well… almost always. Sometime it gets a bit intense, which is why I ask people that tune into moon energy to let me know, in advance…. what to be mindful of. I’m one of those types of people that would rather have awareness ahead of time… than not.. so… Here is some great info for this months FULL MOON by Melissa Corter – Enjoy – SDJ ♥
August 26th Full Moon in Pisces
A lovely Full Moon in the sign of Pisces, a Full Moon for the dreamers, artists and creators! This includes you, the divine creator, weaving the magic of the spirit with the mission of the human. Emotions can be amplified, already expected with the full Moon energy, yet in the sign of Pisces you can certainly expect a double dose! Fret not for this extra sensitivity also brings keen insight and heightened intuition for those willing to allow the emotion to flow and connect to the higher self for answers. This aspect of your being can be revealed more deeply at this time as a Full Moon also allows latent beliefs, qualities, and feelings to surface. The energy of this Full Moon in Pisces can braid the material world and the unseen world together for more tangible results.
Dreams become more possible at this time, and you can supercharge those dreams by taking a moment to honor the ones you have already fulfilled. Pisces Full Moon energy thrives on gratitude, reflection, daydreaming, and creativity…. when it is grounded and not to lofty. Be mindful of pipedreams without inspired action. Bring focus into the equation and this Full Moon can clarify and magnify your intentions; sloughing off unnecessary ingredients or shiny objects that deter you from manifesting your desire. Attune yourself with the moon’s energy, ask her for clarity as you hold gratitude for all she helps you shift in and out of… especially as she will work behind the scenes sometimes hidden from your awareness.
“You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one.
I hope someday you’ll join us. And the world will live as one.”
~ John Lennon
The Pisces Full Moon is a mystical moon, inviting intuition and psychic energy in more intensely. Do not fear, this is a powerful time of connection and can lead to deep inner truth and clarify your next steps in the coming weeks. Often a Full Moon creates space for the wisdom of the next cycle’s New Moon to reveal the next steps and necessary intentions. Pisces is a water element, spending time in or near water can help you connect with the energy of this Full Moon’s sign.
Native meaning of the moon:
Some Native American tribes called the August Moon the “Sturgeon Moon” because they knew that the sturgeon of the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain were most readily caught during this Full Moon. They also called August’s Moon the “Full Green Corn Moon.” Different tribes had different Moon name preferences. Other examples for August are: “Wheat Cut Moon” (San Ildefonso, and San Juan), “Moon When All Things Ripen” (Dakotah Sioux), and ”Blueberry Moon” (Ojibwe). (Farmer’s Almanac)
Full Moon Mantra (or affirmation):
“It is safe for me to be intuitive”
Tips for the August 2018 Full Moon
Be like water and flow. Find your rhythm, connect to your spirit in gratitude, and let yourself forgive and release. Water under the bridge…. And at the same time, reflect upon the lesson and decide if boundaries need to be in place without attachment or resentment. Get creative and play! Ask how you can let your dreamy playful side take charge and bring balance to this act in life and business. Pisces water energy is also nostalgic, reflect upon memories surfacing, see what wisdom and joy you can glean from them. If the memories feel erratic or heavy, let the healing waters help you release and cleanse them from your consciousness.
Water is a conduit for energy, it can help you clear away anything on your mind, combined with the full Moon, you can wipe the emotional slate clean and begin again, even if you feel like you have already done this countless times. Allow it to feel different this time, Moon energy is nurturing and at the same time a Full Moon contains action oriented/yang energy, this means getting the job done!

**Reminder: each full moon (and eclipse) will impact you for up to 3 days prior to the full moon and 3 days after the full moon.
Full Moons are always powerful times for releasing and letting go, and honoring all you have received during the past 29-day cycle of a lunar cycle. Try creating your own ceremony or honoring of this time to embrace the energy that this time has to help you create space in your life for what you truly desire. As always remember, you are not alone in experiencing this phase, be mindful of this when encountering others over these next few days. Send them love as they are also shining a light on themselves and may be extra sensitive during this time. The next full moon is on September 24th in the sign of Aries, it is known as the Full Corn Moon. ~Melissa Kim Corter
