We'll have a full moon on August 15th (8:29AM ET) in air sign Aquarius, and this full moon may have us focused on the future and what we hope for. We may think more about ways we can do things differently, or see the results of changes we've already made. We may be more concerned with how what we do impacts the world at large, and can feel more charitable.
We may want to come together with those who share our views, but also to focus on a cause. We can work to look at emotional situations more objectively, without being taken in by the emotions of it, though we may need to make sure we're not being too clinical or cold. Some emotion is good.
The full moon is opposite transit (moving) Venus in Leo, so when we are upset, we may get extra indulgent, extra stubborn, and extra stuck. We need to make sure we don't dig in our heels and end up putting ourselves in a bad position. And exercise a little moderation!
The full moon occurs at 22 degrees 24 minutes Aquarius. The major aspects made to this full moon are:
Conjunction: 20 degrees 24 minutes - 26 degrees 24 minutes Aquarius

August's new moon comes on the 30th (6:37AM ET) in earthy Virgo. Virgo likes to get things done, get organized, and get practical, and that's energy we'll likely need desperately after this midyear wonkiness! So we can focus on trying to make lists, bring in some structure and order, and tend to the little tasks and chores that have piled up. We can be more hard-working, focused, and detailed.
It's likely that a lot has piled up over the last few months (thanks Mercury retrograde!), and we've got a lot to do. We can tend to daily life, to our schedules and routines, and try to get things moving forward st a steady pace. Onward!
This new moon is conjunct (aligned with) Mars in Virgo, and trine (positive aspect, 4 signs away) Uranus in Taurus. This brings great energy and drive to get things done and start new projects and plans, and we can work on doing things in new ways and feel independent. This new moon wants things to happen!
