Tips for this month's FULL MOON


Thursday, August 15, 8:29 a.m. EDST, is the FULL MOON exact day and time in AUGUST! Don’t miss this chance to view your life objectively. During the three days around the Full Moon, you can see where you need to make changes in an important relationship. Once aware of your interaction, how can you best adjust your approach so that you can make your dreams come true? It’s time for reevaluation.

There is an opportunity for insight and progress inherent in the FULL MOON. People often react emotionally during the days of the Full Moon due to a feeling of helplessness. They become aware of the distance between the way they want their life to be, and the way it currently is. Often, when they see this gap, they become upset.

The reflection from your environment shows you your current reality--and this may be in stark contrast to the way you would like things to be. The empowerment is that, once aware, you have the chance to change things successfully.

Because this FULL MOON occurs in the sign of AQUARIUS, the emotional energy stirred in the atmosphere is a bit withdrawn and impersonal. There is an objective awareness of how current circumstances may not be supporting your larger life goals—the dreams that get you excited.

You will be very aware of the limitations in your life that bind you through an outburst of creativity that has perhaps taken on a life of its own and now requires upkeep you didn’t expect. You may be questioning whether you want to continue pouring creative fuel into a close relationship. Those you are interacting with may be perceiving situations in a way that leads them to think they are not getting their way, leading to exaggerated drama. As is often the case with the days of the Full Moon, people get upset.

This is a powerful time (8/14 - 8/16) for reevaluating the new beginnings you made during the New Moon earlier this month. Re-read your wish list and notice the ways in which you are now either closer to--or further away from--the dreams in your heart that you would like to manifest in your life.

Given that this Full Moon is in the sign of AQUARIUS, you are likely to be more aware than usual of your own needs for self-containment and ability to act independently in your unique style. What adjustments can you make in handling important relationships so that others celebrate and support your freedom to be your authentic self.

This FULL MOON in AQUARIUS opposes the Sun in LEO, so it is likely that when people become upset, they will withdraw with disdain. It will be up to you to re-engage their participation, if you feel it is in your best interests to do so.

Times during this Full Moon when the emotional intensity will be at its strongest:

Wednesday, 8/14 - all day and night
Thursday, 8/15 - all day and night; especially volatile 9:02pm - 11:49pm
Friday, 8/16 - all day and night
Saturday, 8/17 - the energy starts to calm

These times are in Eastern Daylight Savings Time (EDST) and need to be converted to your local time zone. Keep in mind that if you are not observing Daylight Savings Time, subtract one hour, and then convert to your time zone. The Moon Box on the Homepage of this site (upper right corner) will tell you how many hours difference your location is from the Eastern Time Zone in the US.
