Your Horoscope for the Full Moon in PiscesGetty/Margie Rischiotto

Full Moons are a time for releasing and relinquishing. If you have an excess in your life, this is the time for it to go down the drain. Through silent meditation, exchanging of thoughts, or spiritual practice, Full Moons are a point when we can let go.

The Full Moon in Pisces on August 30 is an astrological hint to reminisce about how much you’ve grown. Following Western astrology, these new and complete Moon guides are monthly reminders to set and review your intentions—your horoscope is a rudimentary prompt for self-reflection.

The words you choose have a monumental effect on how you navigate through the world. Imagine that you are a computer and your brain is software that requires you to program it. The code you use to design the function of your processing system forms through your genetics, experiences, and the language you use to express yourself. What words would you program into your mind? Would you choose to use more terms of endearment or actively avoid sentimental expressions? Would you make more space for your favorite nouns like enough and flourish, or do you consider this too "woo-woo"?

Regardless of how you feel about this Full Moon message, I encourage you to reflect on your self-expression and how it can evolve. Do you negatively subtract joy from the conversation when you communicate with others? If so, how? Are you ridiculously hard on yourself because you’re competing with an imagined role model? If you need to prioritize yourself and focus, have you sought the necessary assistance to break through limitations?

On August 30, 2023, at 9:35 PM EST, the Full Moon in Pisces will be illuminated by the Sun in Virgo. Pisces is a mutable water sign that can willingly fall into traps and pitfalls by overestimating how much is required of them. They stuck on spiraling out about how they believe life should be instead of becoming the change they wish to see in the world. No. matter your own zodiac sign, focus on finding solid ground instead of planning to live on clouds this week.

Read your horoscopes based on your Sun, Moon, and Rising signs. Read for your Sun sign to gain insight based on the version of yourself that you’re maturing into, your Rising sign to reflect on your present state, and your Moon sign’s guidance on how to nurture your inner child.

Read your horoscope for the Full Moon in Pisces:


Aries, are you deluding yourself into ghosting? How you justify your actions tells a tremendous amount about your value systems. Whether you inflexibly abide by your beliefs or give a little when necessary, it always helps to be aware. Creating distance without communication is a totalitarian approach to life.


Taurus, how do you find a home amidst dysfunction? How you find comfort has everything to do with your upbringing. And you might not realize it until you share seemingly mundane details of your childhood with those around you. Try surrounding yourself with people who challenge your comfort zone. What will you learn?


Gemini, perseverance is how you land your dream job. Maybe having patience is only half of the battle. I wonder what would happen if you focused more on the fruits of your progress through a temporal lens. What would happen if you remember you’re working for next year as opposed to tomorrow?


Cancer, when did you last read a book that changed your worldview? You’re due for a paradigm shift, love. Try to underthink the process and grab a book on a familiar topic. When you have found something meaningful, finish the book. Change can come from new perspectives.


Leo, hold your lover closely. Something needs to change; sometimes times breaking up is necessary. It can be beneficial to recognize that change needs to happen and something has to give. In those moments, you can become more aware of your weaknesses and progress can occur. What is your desired outcome? Is it possible to get there without a complete conclusion?


Virgo, it’s okay to be a hermit. You are allowed to be tired. It's important to be able to recognize when your psychological battery is empty. Right now, you need rest. Choosing yourself will rarely be a choice you regret, especially when you know you need rest.


Libra, would it help you to retreat into yourself? Yes, taking space from long-standing commitments and obligations is complex. The ability to meet the needs of others may give off a feeling of validation that seems addictive. Sometimes, the best way to break a pattern is to accept that you want to break the habit.


Scorpio, putting off momentary pleasure for long-term success is purposeful. Look, I am all for letting yourself embrace pointless fun. Allowing yourself to play can help your cognitive development and sense of well-being. But to sustain your joy, you must have days when you buckle down and do work.


Sagittarius, focus on the war and settle your battles. Sweetheart, imagine if you did throw your all into every frustration and stress. You overwhelm yourself by mindlessly overextending your energy. Focus on your long-term goals, and it will become easier to distinguish which battles are distracting traps. Let trolls live in the distance while you focus on triumph.


Capricorn, how can you mature in your communication? When we are children, we communicate purely to be understood. We cry for lack of better words and continue to call when people positively respond to our bids for attachment. If you lack the connection you seek, the answer is to refine your self-expression.


Aquarius, how can you create bridges instead of directing your attention toward what is meaningful to you? According to the stars, building bridges from shared values will help your personal development. While it may feel natural to direct your energy towards what you find meaningful, that action may leave you lonely. Find community with people who want to cross the bridge to meet you in the middle.


Pisces, how can your loved ones help you see yourself? Constructive criticism can feel like a stab in the back. If you're repeatedly making the same error, it can feel like betrayal to learn you need to improve in many areas. No one wants a critique every time they do something wrong. But add some logic to your feelings. Finding joy in feedback begins with gratitude.
