If you haven’t noticed, things are getting stranger by the minute. You can thank this upcoming full moon in Aquarius.
At 5:29 a.m. on August 15, 2019, the full moon will be in the airy and emotional sign of Aquarius. There’s no such thing as a “typical” full moon in Aquarius, but this one is unusual even by the standards of this most eccentric sign.
The August 2019 full moon also brings the potential for anger, jealousy, intimidation, and impulsive actions. You may already be experiencing stress, anxiety and unexpected changes in your love life from the July 31 new moon. This highlights the need for patience, understanding, and unconditional love over the coming two weeks.
What this Full Moon in Aquarius Means for You
Everything feels extremely personal—and no matter how much we try to stay neutral, we’re likely to take things personally too. This is what happens when Mercury, the sun, Venus, Juno, and Mars are all in Leo opposite the Moon. I know, crazy, right?
AQUARIUS – No drama, Aquarius? You usually try to stay above the fray, but that probably won’t work for you this time. A family situation is challenging you to cultivate your emotional intelligence—and the only way out is in. Try to understand what they’re feeling, even if you disagree intellectually.
PISCES – What affects one affects all, Pisces, and that’s something you understand better than anyone. But being so tuned in to the world’s suffering can get overwhelming, and it’s tempting to check out. Rise to the occasion anyway: Sensitive souls like you are humanity’s best hope to make things better.
ARIES – Headstrong, or heart-centered? When it comes to leadership styles, Aries, those are your options—and by now, you probably know which one is more effective. Most likely, the ego’s agenda isn’t the real heart of the matter here. So why not put it on the back burner for now?
TAURUS – We all want to make our families proud, Taurus, but that in itself just isn’t enough. Real motivation comes from pursuing a goal that’s personally meaningful to you. If you’ve been following the fast track to someone else’s idea of success, it may be time to go back to square one.
GEMINI – Learning should be fun, Gemini. But even social learners like you need to buckle down and hit the books once in a while. A solitary deep dive into the subject of your choice could make you a bona fide expert—and even better, help you understand your own mind.
CANCER – Your cup overfloweth, Cancer! And with more blessings than you know what to do with, it’s natural to want to share the wealth. Just make sure you’re not totally detached from your own wants and needs—and remember to save some of the good stuff for yourself.
LEO – You were born to stand out, Leo! Concerns about how other people might perceive you often have an undue influence on the way you “show up” in public. It’s time to cut the crowd-pleasing antics and start playing to the most important audience: Yourself.
VIRGO – You’ve never cared much about being in the starting lineup, Virgo—just being on the winning team. Still, it’s hard to ignore the fact that in a current work situation, you’re the real MVP. Go ahead and take the credit, but remember: You’re all playing for the same side.
LIBRA – Not fit for public consumption? We get it, Libra—sometimes socializing feels too much like a performance. And there’s a whole other person you get to be when no one is watching. Maybe skip the party this time and hang out with that person instead!
SCORPIO – Haters gonna hate, Scorpio—intellectually, you get this. But as a project of yours nears completion and you prepare to put it out there, you can’t help worrying how it’ll be received. Try not to get too emotionally invested: No matter what, you know it’s an inspired creation.
SAGITTARIUS – Lighten up, Sag! Everyone already knows you’re a genius—but the more you belabor that point, the less inspired your ideas will seem. Instead of trying to prove you’re the smartest person in the room, adopt a spirit of inquiry and ask what others might have to teach you.
CAPRICORN – What’s your secret weapon, Capricorn? Hard work and self-discipline get most of the credit for your success, but rest and recreation are equally important. Take a break to celebrate your successes now—it may ensure you’ll have more to celebrate in the future!
Aquarius wants to make up its own mind and is always on the search for a bigger truth. The absolute truth. The truth that goes beyond perspective and into a higher place.
Under the energy of this Aquarius Full Moon think about how you can bring these qualities into your life.
