Faith is one of the forces by which men live, and the total absence of it means collapse. William James
Forgive, oh Lord, my little jokes on thee and I’ll forgive the big ones on me. Robert Frost
August's Piscean full Moon occurs on the 30th August in Australia and the 29th August in the United States. This is a variable full Moon in that it presents some big difficulties along with some wonderful opportunities for expansion, movement and love. This is an especially Neptunian Piscean full Moon as the Moon is only two degrees away from Neptune, and, the Moon will pass over Neptune (conjunct) within a few hours of the full Moon.
Further, Jupiter is conjuncting the Sun and opposing the Moon. This can give rise to optimism and hope and the desire for travel and embracing the new. Further, we have Lilith, the Moon's north node and Mercury all together on the first three degrees of Libra, traversing the Super Galactic Center. It's high time to get your hopes and dreams and affirmations in order as we have a very strong chance of having them come true.
