After the new moon on July 28, the cycle of our natural satellite restarted giving way to another lunar month culminating in the full moon of August.
The phases with the greatest astrological weight are those that mark the beginning and the end, when the universe gives us the opportunity to start projects with renewed spirits and release or eliminate the things that we do not want to continue to be part of our lives, respectively.
New moons are ideal to manifest what we want to attract: love, prosperity, abundance, a new job, etc., while full moons represent the perfect time to reflect, reap the fruits of our efforts and correct what is necessary, and how it is the phase where it is most illuminated is when it emanates its greatest energy.
Know when the new and full moon will be in August to have the opportunity to plan ahead for your wishes and goals.
Full Moon – August 11
On Thursday, August 11, the full moon known as the Sturgeon Moon will take place.. According to The Farmer’s Almanac, Native American cultures named it that way because it marks the time of year when it is easier to catch sturgeon, a large fish capable of feeding a family.
Astrologically, this full moon, which by the way will be the last supermoon of the year, occurs in the sign of Aquarius so we will have a need for freedom and be progressive. It will be a time when we will see our emotions and passions more objectively. According to Bustle, the energy of this air sign on the moon will inspire us to be true to our feelings.
New Moon – August 27
