The full moon in Pisces on the 30th brings a culmination to what’s been brewing since the new moon in Leo back on the 16th (and also the new moon in Pisces back on February 20th!). How have the intentions you set a few weeks ago come to life? A big theme of 2023 has been walking away from a previous idea of success toward new hope and inspiration for the future, and this full moon marks a climax in that journey.

There are also surprises that come along with this full moon as Uranus stations retrograde on the 28th highlighting all the change we’ve been experiencing this year and shocking some of us back to life. This full moon might make you feel like the choice is now or never, but with Mars entering balanced Libra on the 27th, all decisions must be carefully considered.

(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that sign too will provide further insight.)

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

The full moon in Pisces on the 30th is for going on Do Not Disturb mode and taking a break. If you’ve been pushing yourself too hard, this is when you burn out and absolutely need to rest. You might feel pulled in many directions, especially toward helping friends and lovers solve their problems. But give yourself the gift of silence and meditation this week. You need it.

This week’s mantra: “Silence.”

(April 20 - May 20)

All the networking you’ve done this year culminates at the full moon in Pisces on the 30th. You’ve worked hard to build connections, find clients or make inroads on a new career path, and this week you get confirmation of some solid support. These aren’t casual friends you’re making right now, but people who will support you for years to come. Accept the invitation.

This week’s mantra: “Community.”

Cheeky illustration of identical twins with long dark hair and a statement earrings back-to-back, smirking at each other.


(May 21 - June 20)

The full moon in Pisces on the 30th brings a culmination for your career. All the hard work you’ve been doing since March is finally being recognized, and it feels good to be in the spotlight. Though that little voice in your head might be telling you that you’ll never be enough, remember that you already are, and you have the work to prove it. Keep going!

This week’s mantra: “Success!”

(June 21 - July 22)

You reach a spiritual or intellectual peak at the full moon in Pisces on the 30th. Whether it’s the first day of school, an enlightening breathwork class or solidified travel plans, you’re on an exciting journey that’s also a huge commitment. Though frustrations or (literal) renovations at home might leave you feeling unsettled this month, you can always escape into what you’re learning.

This week’s mantra: “Initiation.”

Cheeky illustration of a woman of Asian-descent wearing a sheer coral top with her hair half-up in pigtail puns, the rest down. She is hugging a lion, who is smirking.


(July 23 - Aug 22)

At the full moon in Pisces on the 30th, you get literally or metaphorically left with the check at a group dinner. This is less about your friends being rude or space cadets (though, let’s be real…) and more a reality check around how much you’ve been spending these days. Take some time this week to make a plan to pay off your debts.

This week’s mantra: “Balance.”

(August 23 - September 23)

If you’ve been wondering where you stand with someone, the full moon in Pisces on the 30th makes things very clear. This is a take-things-to-the-next-level-or-break up kind of full moon as it’s conjunct Saturn—planet of limits, restrictions and boundaries. Whether you stay together or decide to go your separate ways, you’re definitely feeling the heaviness that comes with falling in love or joining forces. Make that commitment.

This week’s mantra: “Commit.”

(September 23 - October 21)

The full moon in Pisces on the 30th feels like a finale for you. You’re moving on to a new era in your daily routine and personal responsibilities, and your assignment this week is to tie up loose ends and get everything in order for the person who’s taking over your old job (literally or figuratively). With Mars entering your sign on the 27th, you’re also feeling a major burst of energy (and maybe even some aggression). Just be careful not to overdo it. Slow and steady.

This week’s mantra: “Maintain.”

(October 22 - November 21)

What you think is going to be a casual and fun night on the 30th quickly turns serious. You’re suddenly planning your future with a random Hinge date or deciding to turn that silly poem you wrote into its own creative project. With Uranus stationing retrograde on the 28th, you may also get surprising news from someone close to you this week. There’s chaos in the air for sure, but overall, you’re feeling good.

This week’s mantra: “Chance.”

Cheeky illustration of a Black woman with purple hair on an orange background. She's in a wearing jean jacket, with a quiver strapped across her back and arrows sticking out.


(November 22 - December 21)

When it comes to that Ikea furniture that’s been collecting dust in the box since March, you’re either going to build it now or it’ll sit there forever. The full moon in Pisces on the 30th highlights all the little projects you want to get done at home to make things feel more put together and structured. Your routines are a bit unpredictable this week, but make sure you carve out time to tidy up and put everything in its place.

This week’s mantra: “Nest.”

(December 22 - January 19)

The full moon in Pisces on the 30th finds you packing up the car to take a road trip to visit your big sister. It’s just a quick drive out of town, but after a summer of constant power struggles and heavy discussions, you could really use a little bit of levity. Some unexpected joy comes your way this week too, especially via creativity or hanging with your kids. Take pleasure in the little things.

This week’s mantra: “Simple joys.”

Cheeky image of a Black woman with blue hair on a light blue background. She's holding blue water in her palms, which is bubbling up and taking shape as her hair.


(January 20 - February 18)

Your funds have been tight lately, but at the full moon on the 30th, you’re able to pull together the most delicious meal for friends on a budget. You’ve had so much fun inviting others into your home this summer and reconnecting with old friends and now you’re learning that you can find joy and security even when things are less abundant. Remember these recipes for future leaner times.

This week’s mantra: “Satisfaction.”

(February 19 - March 20)

This week’s full moon on the 30th is in your sign and it’s highlighting how much growth you’ve experienced this year. Sure, it’s been painful at times, but it’s also been so rewarding. Treat yourself to a mani/pedi or acupuncture appointment to celebrate. This is also the perfect full moon to uplevel your skincare routine as its conjunct Saturn which rules structured routines and also, the skin! Splurge a little on a scrub or get a facial!

This week’s mantra: “Preserve.”
