August 30th, 2023 Super Full Blue Moon in Pisces

In addition to the Full Moon on August 1st in the sign of Aquarius, we now have a second Full Moon in the sign of Pisces. Although it has nothing to do with the color, this uniquely rare occurrence of a second Full Moon in a month is why the name is Blue Moon. This event happens roughly once every 2 to 3 years. When a blue moon occurs in a specific astrological sign, such as Pisces in this case, it can amplify the Piscean energies.

Each sign has its own unique qualities, characteristics, and themes. Pisces is associated with intuition, creativity, spirituality, empathy, and emotional depth. The blue moon intensifies the Piscean traits; this may reflect as feeling more attuned to emotions, an experience of heightened intuition, and feeling drawn to creative or spiritual pursuits. Pisces is ruled by Neptune, the planet of dreams and illusions, so the energy of a blue moon in Pisces could inspire imaginative thinking and a deeper connection to the unconscious. Astrological experiences vary depending on the unique energetic signature of your natal chart. Some will experience this energy as a time for introspection, self-discovery, and embracing the mystical aspects of life. Others might see it as an opportunity to tap into their artistic or intuitive abilities and engage in activities that align with Piscean energies.

August’s First Full Moon was the Sturgeon moon. The second Full Moon in the month of August is the Blue supermoon. “Supermoons are caused by the shape of the Moon’s orbit, which is not a perfect circle. Its orbit is an ellipse, or oval, shape. Each month, it reaches a point farthest from the Earth, called apogee, and a point closest to the Earth, called perigee. A “supermoon” occurs when the Moon is at least ninety percent of the way to its perigee position at the same time that it is in its “full” or “new” phase. When either occurs when the Moon happens to be at perigee, the Moon is considered an “extreme perigean supermoon.” (Farmer’s Almanac)

A Full Moon is a captivating portal to the hidden depths of the psyche; a supermoon amplifies these qualities and influences. As the twelfth sign of the zodiac, Pisces is intimately linked to the realm of the unconscious, where the hidden aspects of the personality reside. Just as the moon’s reflection dances upon the surface of water, the Full Moon highlights the fluid and elusive nature of the unconscious mind. It invites contemplation and introspection, nudging us to explore the undercurrents of their emotions, fantasies, and desires that lie hidden beneath the conscious veneer. This lunar phase encourages an encounter with the shadow—the repository of repressed emotions, unacknowledged desires, and aspects of the self that often remain obscured. The Pisces Full Moon draws attention to the transformative potential of embracing these shadow elements. As the moon’s light touches these hidden corners, individuals are offered a unique opportunity to integrate these aspects into conscious awareness, fostering a journey of self-discovery and individuation.

Important Themes for the August 2023 Pisces Full Supermoon:

Pay attention to subtle feelings and dreams; under the influence of a Pisces Full Moon, the boundaries between waking reality and the ethereal world thin, uncovering symbols and universal themes that permeate the human experience. A Full Moon can act as an enchanted mirror, reflecting the personal dimensions of the psyche and the universal currents that shape us. It invites introspection, dream analysis, and creative exploration. Through engaging with the hidden side of the personality, we can experience a profound process of inner alchemy, transmuting the shadows into valuable insights, emotional liberation, and the potential for authentic self-expression. Practice trusting the depths of your being and exploring the untapped potential contained within the inner dimensions of your mind and consciousness… There are hidden gifts, talents, and dreams awaiting discovery.

Full Moons are always powerful times for releasing and letting go. Try creating your own ceremony or honoring this time to embrace the energy this time has to help you create space for what you truly desire. As always, remember that 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 in the sign of Aries on September 29th.
