Now that it’s Virgo season, reality has been a little too harsh. (Has anyone else’s to-do list tripled overnight? Gah.)
To make matters worse, Mercury, Virgo’s planetary ruler, has recently stationed retrograde, jumbling up details and information and making it difficult to solve problems and exchange important instructions. Normally, this time of year is an opportunity for everyone to get their responsibilities in order that they let pile up during Leo season, but with the planet of communication reversing through the cosmos, it won’t be as easy to make immediate progress. Fortunately, as the *second* full moon of the month prepares to illuminate the sky, you’ll be able to take a much-needed break from your Virgo season concerns. The August 2023 super blue moon not only re-aligns you with the bigger picture, but it also encourages every zodiac sign to look beyond the half-finished tasks in front of them, and toward your future dreams and ideals.
The upcoming full moon will peak in the mutable water sign of Pisces before the month ends. This full moon in Virgo, the Jupiter-ruled sign of the zodiac, is focusing your emotional desire to go beyond the rules and confines of Virgo season. If you’ve been feeling overwhelmed by the amount of facts and harsh realities in your current environment, this full moon aims to lift you out of it. This does not mean you will abandon your responsibilities entirely. It simply means that you’ll be less concerned with specifics and more focused on the big picture.
What Exactly Is A Supermoon?
The super blue moon will appear in the sky on August 30, 2023, at 9:35 p.m. ET or August 31, 3.35 a.m. CET. Supermoons are annual lunar events that occur three to four times per year. The name comes from the fact that a supermoon is about 7% larger than a full moon. Supermoons appear larger and brighter than average to the naked eye, but their effect on your physical body and mood is no different than a regular full moon.
What exactly is a Blue Moon?
A blue moon occurs when there are two full moons in the same calendar month (though, unfortunately, the moon will not be blue). They are considered rare lunations, which is where the phrase “once in a blue moon” comes from. In fact, blue moons only occur every two to three years.
Because it is both super and blue, this moon is extremely rare. The last super blue moon occurred in December 2009; the next one will not occur until August 2032.
Here’s how the rare 2023 super blue moon will affect each zodiac sign:
Aries (March 20-April 19)
The full moon on August 30 will shine a light on your desire to withdraw from the public eye. Despite the fact that you are a fairly active person, this lunation encourages you to spend less time on the go and more time recharging your creative batteries. If you’ve been feeling exhausted, now is a good time to redirect your attention to activities that don’t require much physical activity, such as journaling or daydreaming.
Taurus (April 19-May 20)
Your hopes and dreams for your friendships and community will be highlighted during the Pisces full moon. You might be working with someone who inspires you, or you might be thinking about what your ideal tribe looks like. Taurus, this is an excellent time for networking, so make the most of it. The connections you make now are extremely hopeful, and they may provide you with long-term support and camaraderie in the long run.
Gemini (May 20-June 21)
On August 30, the full moon in Pisces will illuminate your 10th house of career and public image, bringing some of your professional hopes and dreams to the fore. When it comes to your reputation, you have a tendency to dream big, and on this day, it will be easier to imagine where your work could potentially take you. This lunation could represent a promotion or a chance to showcase your talents to the masses.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
As the Pisces full moon unfolds this month, your current belief systems and philosophies will be illuminated. This lunation encourages you to broaden your horizons, especially if you’ve been bogged down by the stresses of daily life. This is a good time to travel or do something unusual, Cancer, so don’t be afraid to try something new.
Leo (July 22-August 21)
The Pisces full moon on August 30 shines a light on your current boundaries and obligations to others. You could be paying off a looming debt or adjusting your proximity to other people and their financial responsibilities. You may also be thinking about the possibilities that your resources are opening up for you that you were previously unable to see. Any endings that occur now are most likely a blessing in disguise, Leo, so embrace any changes.
Virgo (August 21-September 22)
Your romantic relationships and partnerships will be your primary focus as the Pisces full moon unfolds. While you are a logical person, this lunation is inviting you to embrace the possibilities that your connections are now offering. Try not to limit your thinking about love right now, Virgo; it will benefit you to stay open-minded and trust the dynamics you’ve developed with others.
Libra (September 22-October 21)
The full moon on August 30 will direct your attention to your current habits, routines, and rituals. You’ll be looking for more fluidity in your daily routine right now, inviting you to make some changes that support your long-term goals and ideals in this area of your life. Now is not the time to implement rigid regimens; instead, accept the flexibility you require in your daily life to function optimally.
Scorpio (October 21-November 22)
During the Pisces full moon, Scorpio, your imagination will run wild, making it an excellent time to plan how you will enjoy life’s pleasures. You could be reaching a turning point in a romantic relationship or completing a creative project. In any case, today’s full moon is all about what’s possible when pleasure is prioritized, so you’re bound to be inspired.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
The Pisces full moon on August 30 will shine a light on your fourth house of home and family, bringing to light your ideals for your private world. While this may not be an especially active period for you, you will spend a lot of time imagining what your ideal lifestyle would be like in your natural habitat. You may feel compelled to relocate or make changes to your home to better align with your personal goals.
Capricorn (December 20-January 21)
During the Pisces full moon on August 30, you’ll be leaning into your imagination. Capricorn, now is the time to express your thoughts and ideas, even if the details aren’t completely worked out. You’ve always been a visionary, but today you’ll feel especially optimistic about what you still need to learn and understand about the world. Today, think big and let your imagination guide you. On this day, inspiration will be plentiful.
Aquarius (January 21-February 20)
The full moon on August 30 illuminates your current financial and resource situation. On this day, you’ll be thinking about the possibilities that your assets can provide you, as well as ways to make the most of what you already have. While the specifics are still up in the air, now is an excellent time to plan how you will enjoy the fruits of your labor.
Pisces (February 20 – March 20)
The full moon on August 30 illuminates your current dreams and aspirations for yourself and your identity. After a period of prioritizing logic over imagination and creativity, now is the time to dream big. Pisces, the world is now your oyster. Where do you see yourself in an ideal world? It’s not too far-fetched to believe that you’ll achieve your goals.
