Every 28 days, the full moon makes its grand entrance in the night sky, revealing the entirety of its celestial beauty. As it showers the universe with its glowing, ethereal light, you can literally *feel* its power surging through your spirit. And if you’re one of the zodiac signs most affected by the full moon, there’s a strong chance the experience will leave you changed in some way!
A full moon always takes place while the moon—ruler of your internal self—is forming an opposition with the sun—ruler of your external self—creating inner turmoil and forcing you to take action. It’s not unusual for deep-seated emotions to rise to the surface like a volcanic explosion, nor it is uncommon for major epiphanies to take place during this time. Because the full moon is also the most climactic phase of the lunar cycle, it’s often a time that evokes major changes and revelatory moments. Like it or not, a full moon will always set you free!
On August 11, a full moon in Aquarius will reach its peak at 9:35 p.m. ET. Aquarius is famous—or sometimes infamous—for being the rule-breaker, the revolutionary and the eccentric. This fixed air sign is always way ahead of its time and their innovative streak makes Aquarius a trendsetter to its core. As though they’re space aliens who’ve crash-landed onto Earth, Aquarians are people who can’t help but stand out from the crowd and go against the grain. This full moon is encouraging you to step up to the plate and be the change you’d like to see in the world.
Opposing the sun in creative, larger-than-life and expressive Leo, an attention-grabbing fire sign with an artistic flare. That means this full moon shines a light on the dichotomy between going solo and being a team-player. While Leo wants to be the star of the show, Aquarius would rather receive recognition in a much more subtle way. While Leo wants to express themselves and create art, Aquarius cares more about giving someone else the space to shine. However, too much of anything can leave a person feeling unbalanced, so allow this full moon to show you what you’re missing. And because this full moon will join forces with Saturn—planet of karma and restriction—this full moon is forcing you to take responsibility for your future. After all, your destiny lies in your hands.
These Zodiac Signs Will Feel The August Full Moon The Most
What do you want to accomplish, Taurus? What do you want to be known for? The full moon in Aquarius is bringing power to your 10th house of career and reputation, shining a light on your social standing. You may be rethinking your professional goals and realizing that something isn’t working. Turning the ship around when it’s drifted off course is never easy, but it’s better than continuing in the wrong direction. You have so much potential to do something incredible with your career, especially if you start now! The road ahead is riddled with obstacles, challenges and downright disappointments, but if you’re not willing to weather the storm, how else will you be able to prove how much you deserve it?
Your solar return is underway, which is reminding you to be confident in yourself and to believe in your ability to become a better person. However, the full moon in Aquarius is bringing your attention to your one-on-one relationships. Taking place in your seventh house of allies, enemies, spouses besties and business partners, this lunar event is forcing you to recognize what is and isn’t working when it comes to your relationship dynamics. If the foundation of a relationship is weak and unreliable, this full moon might be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. However, if you and your partner are willing to take responsibility and meet in the middle, this full moon will make you realize just how strong your relationship truly is.
You’ve been working so hard to gain more clout in your career and to propel yourself even further toward success. However, winning the game isn’t the most important thing in your life, especially if you’re avoiding problems in your personal life under the guise of being a workaholic. Bringing your focus to your fourth house of family and lineage, the full moon in Aquarius wants you to understand that you had no control over where you come from or who you’re related to. And although you might feel bogged down by pressure at home, you have the power to build your own idea of home, no matter where that may be. If you aren’t happy with your address or you and your parents aren’t getting along, this full moon will inspire you to start doing something about it (one way or the other).
This full moon is all about you, Aquarius. You’re the star of the show, even if you do have a tendency to avoid the spotlight! Because this full moon shines a light on your first house of the self, it will encourage you to stare deep into your own reflection and take a close look at the person you’re becoming. Just because you’ve make mistakes in the past doesn’t mean you’re the same person you were before. Allow this full moon to show you all the ways in which you’ve grown (and all the ways in which you’ve been growing). Prepare for a climactic moment in your life to unfold, because a full moon is always a moment of change and completion. You’re leaving behind the old you and getting to know the new you, Aquarius.
