Full moon Aquarius 25° 51′
18 August 2016, UTC 0926 | AEST 1926
The full moon brings light to the night sky, enlightens the darkness, and fully illuminates your consciousness. It is the manifestation of the new moon vision. It is potent time when you are open to receive something from outside the self.
Across the Leo – Aquarius axis, your ego awakens to the concerns of the human collective. There is a shift from being an active source of radiance to the impassive act of illumination. The boundary between the performer and the audience dissolves and a dialogue takes place. Who holds the real power?
With Uranus involved, you know it’s going to be zingy, likely to stir up the status quo, both in your personal life and for the collective. The urge to break free from the established way of doing things is heightened by the full moon so watch for revolutionary change, progressive reforms, and a defiant willingness to stand out from the crowd.
While exciting, Uranian awakening is rarely welcome because it is painful to let go of security, predictability, and control. Be gentle with yourself if you experience a sudden, unexpected change of direction. Anchor heightened emotions in the body through rituals of self-care and self-love.
(If you could use a safe, non-judgemental space to explore an issue, ask for help. I offer transpersonal counselling, and there are many other supportive therapy options available, no matter how dire your situation.)
Thanks for all the feedback on my first-ever monthly horoscopes. As you love the sign-by-sign format, I’m going to include mini moon forecasts for each sign with both my new moon and full moon reports. I love to hear from you, so please, let me know what you think.
Aries – You don’t need to lose yourself to contribute to the group. Embracing and expressing your uniqueness endears you to your friends and community.
Taurus – A quirky solution to the tricky work/life balance comes out of nowhere but presents a valid solution to lingering anxieties. Don’t be afraid to give it a go.
Gemini – Often the most valuable learning comes from outside the classroom. A straightforward approach helps make those dreams a reality.
Cancer – You’re optimistic about money and willing to try new approaches to make more of it. Don’t let fear of the inevitable stop you.
Leo – Relationships don’t have to be conventional to be fulfilling. A long-distance romance could be perfect for you and your love. Technology can spice things up.
Virgo – How are you feeling about your daily routines and rituals of devotion? Does your current schedule alleviate your death anxiety? Breathe deeply; you’re doing great.
Libra – Journal your uncensored thoughts to bring clarity to relationship matters, whether you’re focused on your children or your friends. Burn the evidence.
Scorpio – Shaking up your morning routine will invigorate your outlook. You might even find that there’s a spring in your step on your way to work and on the way home.
Sagittarius – Creative new approaches to your spiritual beliefs and philosophy of life reboots your sibling relationships. Having fun is healthy.
Capricorn – If you’re seeking new solutions to financial issues, be sure to examine your deeper motivations rather than act on impulse.
Aquarius – You’re channelling formidable authority and persuasive power right now. Use this to negotiate positive outcomes in your community.
Pisces – It’s a great time to snuggle up to the skeletons in your closet. Spending time alone to meditate on your not-so-noble qualities prevents the Gods from striking you down.
One of the most beautiful things about astrology is being able to work with the cycles of the planets to live a life of cosmic harmony. That doesn’t mean everything always goes smoothly, but having that extra information helps make sense of challenging experiences. Gazing upon the full moon is a simple way of connecting with the wonder of being alive.
