The first Lunar event we have to look forward to this month is the Full Moon coming up in two weeks’ time. On the 15th of August, the Moon will shine at her zenith in Aquarius.
She urges us to look into the future and concentrate on our dreams and ambitions. Think outside the box and innovate where you can. Soon we’ll all be reaping the spoils of our hard work.
The Moon’s nurturing influence will also open our eyes to the needs of the people around us and we’ll want to be as helpful as possible.
The Full Moon is also a time for those who hold similar opinions to flock together. And they might even start working towards a greater shared goal.
Individually, we need to learn objectivity even during difficult circumstances, so that we aren’t overwhelmed emotionally. It is also important to not swing to the other extreme of not caring at all. A fine balance is necessary to hold everything together.
Since Venus is right opposite the Full Moon and located in Leo, we might find ourselves sticking to that feeling when we get upset. Don’t get comfortable in that space. The temptation to overindulge will be strong but we need to resist in order to not run into any trouble.
At the end of the month, we have a New Moon. On the 30th of August, the Moon will completely wane from her location in Virgo.
A full-time go-getter, Virgo is all about organization, practicality, and hard work. This industrious energy will come in handy in the middle of all the craziness that occurs when the year is half over.
Categorize and prioritize your work, organize your space, and finish all the small things that have been building up. Virgo’s influence helps us concentrate and not miss any details.
Mercury has been in Retrograde for the past couple of months. So you’ve most likely got a ton of work to do that you just haven’t been able to get around to.
Make a to-do list and get your routine under control so that you can keep pushing forward without any setbacks. This isn’t the time to slack off.
In its alignment with Mars, which is located in Virgo, and as part of a trine with Uranus, which is currently situated in Taurus, this New Moon promises a great burst of energy and ambition.
We’ll feel like ticking things off our bucket lists and working on all kinds of interesting and fresh projects. Innovation is in the air as we keep discovering easier and more effective ways of doing our work. We’ll all gain a new sense of independence as the Moon wants us to get things going.
Both the Full and the New Moon hold an incredible amount of power. It is up to us to recognize how special their influence is and to put it to good use.
There’s a whole new world waiting to be discovered if we’d just open ourselves up to it.
