Full Moon In Pisces Decan 1

With all the great artists and writers that figured strongly in my research, it was obvious that this Moon will have the ability to inspire great creativity. In addition, I noticed that all the artists explored fantasy, dreamscapes, and surrealism.


In this decan, the Moon carries a sense of prophecy as well, so we can access other timelines at this full moon. This means we are able to integrate elements from the past with those from the future. As a result, it will be possible to form a close connection to our childhood and feel nostalgic. Creatively, this innocence will be very inspiring.

We will find childlike wonder and magic at this full moon. Artists will draw inspiration from the surroundings to create novel geometric shapes and styles. Symbols within nature are central to the surrealist mindset. So it is possible that lunar animals such as wolves, deer, and owls may be significant totem animals. These creatures will speak to us symbolically in our dreams. Watch for synchronicities with these animals if they appear in our daily life also.

Biham in the head of Pegasus has no specific meaning. Robson says the Pegasus constellation as a whole “gives ambition, vanity, intuition, enthusiasm, caprice and bad judgment.” Noonan says “The constellation portends events concerning ships and the ocean and also changes in the weather. In medieval times it was said to indicate vain individuals with a great deal of ambition, but with very poor judgment.” [1] 

Blue Moon Tarot Card

8 Of Cups

The tarot card associated with this decan is the 8 of cups “Much inner and outer work needs to be done. You might feel the need to withdraw from the rat race to focus on what is of true worth and to hear your inner voice.  The Eight of Cups does not imply that your Personal Journey will be easy as many superficial and shallow layers will have to be peeled away before you will find your Personal Truth and Spiritual Core.” ~ teachmetarot .

It is clear that this decan does not focus on the rat race of the business world, rejecting material gain. Karmically this decan signifies turning your back on old behaviour patterns where you have stayed too long in a situation or relationship that was unfulfilling. This lifetime is a wakeup call, and you may have one very draining partner, with whom you suffered so much that you decide once and for all, ‘never again!’.

Blue Moon August 2023 Summary

A blue moon happens when there are two full moons in the same month which happens about every 2 years. This blue Pisces moon is one of imagination and spirituality which takes us away from the grimy material world. However the Moon’s conjunction with the very material Saturn provides a great anchor for your imagination to go wild from. At this blue moon we can crystallise our dreams that would remain just hopeless fantasies if we just left it up to the spiritual planets. Saturn serves as the structure for you to build upon at this blue moon and it can give your projects a higher and more noble purpose.

High flying Pegasus also helps inspire us to reach higher to the stars. Even the tarot card is asking us to turn away from the rat race and focus on activities that uplift and heal our souls. Strangely when we focus on only making money with our creations they can fall flat commercially. Conversely, when declare ‘F*** it!’ and go with what makes our heart sing we make surprising breakthroughs which can even benefit us financially. Don’t forget the inspiring trines from Mercury retrograde to both Jupiter and Uranus while sexy Mars is also trine powerful Pluto. This blue moon August provides rich fuel for the artistic fire.

Blue Moon Healing Crystal

The healing crystal for this month is the Blue Jasper. I chose it because it is linked with a noble spirit and higher ideals. Blue jasper was once worn by royalty and clergy to indicate their possession of wisdom and high moral standards. Blue Jasper is ideal to wear if you work in a dishonest or corrupt work environment. It will help you stand by your principles!

I love the blue version as it resonates so well with Pisces & Uranus ” it imparts the courage to speak out against injustice and to risk unpopularity to defend the vulnerable. It is the perfect anti-stress stone for those in charge of others’ well-being, and for older children and teenagers to carry to resist being led into unwise behaviour or risky situations.” ~ Crystal vaults

Blue Jasper is also fantastic for attracting a wise teacher, healer, priest or priestess into your life. This gorgeous specimen is known as an ‘Impression Jasper’ as it has a mix of other colours within it. Impression Jasper is a stone of inspiration and encouragement. It helps one move from despair to realistic hope and trust by healing the nervous system. Blue Jasper supports sobriety, calms nerves, and brings peace of mind.
