Add these dates to your GCal: Sunday, August 8: New Moon in LeoSunday, August 22: Full Moon in Aquarius 29Sunday, August 22: Sun enters Virgo
It’s August and — phew — you’re sweating! But it’s not the temperature that’s heating you up; it’s your non-stop schedule. You’re exhausted! On August 8, a New Moon in Leo illuminates the area of your chart associated with health and wellness, and this is a pivotal time to check in with your calendar. Have you squeezed so many meetings into your day that you barely have time to brush your teeth, let alone make a sandwich? If so, you’re going to need to scale back — that type of grinding is totally unsustainable.
What’s more, this New Moon invites you to take your reflection a step further: Why are you pushing yourself so hard, Pisces? Are you trying to reach a goal or make a deadline? Or could you — perhaps — be distracting yourself from feeling all the feelings? You are, after all, the most psychic sign of the zodiac: Could you be afraid of what might happen when you actually acknowledge that hurricane of emotions swirling within your psyche? Be honest and if you discover that your calendar is functioning as deflection, this is an excellent time to carve out time more regularly scheduled soul-searching.

The self-awareness you conjure during the New Moon will be especially important later in the month, when the Sun and Moon link up on August 22 to form a Full Moon in Aquarius. This is the second Full Moon in Aquarius of the season (the first occurred on July 23), making it a dynamic Blue Moon. What does that mean? Well, while the Moon may not actually change hue (though I suppose if you’re wearing some tinted spectacles, it may appear to do so), it will absolutely shift your perspective.
Under this eclectic sky, the powerful link between your day-to-day realities and your emotional truths will become strikingly clear. Does a disorganized desk negatively impact your workflow — or does the mess reflect your scattered psyche? Now you know that everything’s connected, which means you can decide which area of life you want to tackle first: the internal or the external? Sure, it might be a little overwhelming at first but the good news is you have options! Don’t worry, Pisces darling, you got this!
Finally, just a few hours after the Full Moon, the Sun drifts into Virgo, kicking off a new astrological season on August 22. With Mercury and Mars already posted up in Virgo’s domain, the Sun will be joining the party, activating the area of your chart associated with serious partnerships. For the next few weeks, you’ll be shifting your focus from “me” to “we,” considering how you relate to others and, likewise, how others relate to you. I know, I know. You’re a mermaid, so don’t worry — this doesn’t mean you’re getting anchored down. Whether you’re singing a new professional contract or getting more serious in a romantic relationship, this is an excellent time to explore how you can maintain your autonomy while simultaneously embracing new commitments. Yes, Pisces, it’s a big deal! But you’re totally ready! Enjoy the ride.
