Tips for making the most out of the coming Full Moon

There’s a Full Moon next Sunday, the 26th August, peaking at 11:56am in the UK.

In Pisces, at 3°12′, I won’t be at all surprised if this Full Moon brings an air of dreaminess and creativity balanced with much busy-bodying and attention to detail, for most people. Often during the Full Moon period, there is heightened activity between us with greater levels of energy and this is often released in unconscious or unrestrained ways, leading to greater potentialities for accidents and unpredictability amongst crowds, especially when the Moon is aspected by Uranus. This time, however, although aspected by Uranus, the aspect is smooth and favourable, providing positive outlets for us that can help balance the tension of the Full Moon and, with Uranus in Taurus, this planet’s usual trail of unpredictable occurrences will likely be subdued. Another planet that will be positioned in a perfect alignment to ease tensions this Full Moon is Saturn in Capricorn which, with Uranus in Taurus and the Sun in Virgo, will all form a perfect Grand Earth Trine (meaning all orbs within this Grand Trine will be less than 1°). With Uranus’ symbolic connection to the brilliantly inventive and progressive mind-set, we can perhaps use this to our advantage and push for some of those results we have long been aiming to see in our projects .. or perhaps many of us will turn out to be pleasantly surprised with ourselves and the things we are capable of ‘pulling out of the bag’ at the last minute, this Full Moon.

Thankfully, Mercury will be (or appearing to be) travelling direct by the 26th August, so we really can make the most of this truly amazing Grand Earth Trine by using our time towards the end of this month for completing any admin tasks or making any purchases/ deposits that will help us towards setting up any long-term goals (after Mercury stations direct on the 19th August, that is). The best times to get the ball rolling for plans this month really, for anyone, are this Monday 20th in the afternoon (which is tomorrow) and Tuesday 21st August, in the morning. This is because the Moon will be waxing, hence building up her energy and preparing for her lunation. She’ll be fully awake and ready to provide us with her best possible support while also in her best position in relation to both the Sun and Saturn during these times (and Saturn has always been a great time-keeper and the Father of long-term goals). Personally, I have been doing a lot of research and planning since our New Moon in Leo on the 11th August, whilst Mercury has been retrograde and I will set my plans into motion on Monday, Tuesday and then on Thursday and on-wards. Between Thursday and Sunday, the Sun will close in to help create the Grand Trine, so this period of time is very favourable for reaping benefits.

I hope my post has been a help to you all and that you enjoy your weekends.

I have included a chart of the Full Moon for you to feast your eyes upon.
