2016’s winds of change will start to kick up once again.
The August Full Moon will take place on August 18th (5:27 AM EST / 2:27 AM PST) in the sign of Aquarius (25°). And there are a few things about this particular Full Moon that will want to remain a mystery until the moment of exact fullness. After all, Aquarius will be lighting up the stage and he brings a rebellious and surprising nature to the table.
Get ready for a courageous push to go outside the norm.
A desire to change things up may suddenly find us – but this time we might be ready and eager to embrace it. That’s because Uranus, Aquarius’ ruler, will be supporting the Sun in Leo in an almost exact trine.
In plain English that means, get ready to break out of your rut and switch things up.
There has been a buzz surrounding this Full Moon for a while. Some have said it’s going to be a Full Moon Eclipse (a powerful Full Moon) while others are saying it’s not.
In this instance, the Moon will touch the Earth’s shadow, which makes it a partial eclipse. That means a lot to me from an astrological point of view. Even if it just skims it, the energy coming off of that touch (or skim) will be impactful.
In my mind, this Full Moon is the beginning of Eclipse Season which will extend into September.
Eclipse season brings high energy, new discoveries and important shifts of consciousness as well as events.
**Side Note: Two additional eclipses will take place on 9/1 (Virgo New Moon Solar Eclipse) & 9/16 (Pisces Full Moon Lunar Eclipse). Insight into the areas in effect for each of us can be found in Member’s 2016 Annual Forecast —- and more will be coming soon in the member portal.
Full Moons, in general, create a light bulb of awareness – but eclipses throw a little extra power into the punch. Turning points come to the table and our attention can suddenly divert into something we weren’t even thinking about.
The energies in play here will be both Aquarius & Leo. This is because the Moon will be in her Aquarius clothes while the Sun will be living large in his Leo ensemble. BUT every sign has the potential to feel the effects.
Aquarius is the “I Know” and Leo is the “I Will”. These two polar opposites will be trying to find a compromise as we see our way through this Full Moon story……
