The full moon on Thursday, August 15, 2019, at 22 degrees from Aquarius is in front of Venus. As your need for love and affection increases, underlying relational tensions are likely to worsen, which can increase stress levels and cause problems.
The full moon of August 2019 also brings potential anger, jealousy, intimidation, and impulsive actions. You may already feel stress, anxiety and unexpected changes in your love life since the new moon on July 31st. This highlights the need for patience, understanding and unconditional love over the next two weeks.
Meaning of the Full Moon.
The Sun/Moon aspect relates to your home, your family and your intimate relationships during the next two weeks of this lunar phase. Opposing forces such as work versus home, or what you need in relation to what you want, could create internal tensions and external pressures. This can lead to conflicts and crises that can drain your energy.
The lunar qualities of emotions and instincts reach their apogee at the full moon. So use your emotional strength and your great intuition to overcome any relationship problems. The subconscious awareness allows an unbiased and balanced look at your personal relationships. You will clearly see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings that can cause discord.
The Full Moon of August 2019: Astrology.
The full moon of August 15 is the most affected by Venus, the planet of love. While Venus exerts a gentle and affectionate influence, the opposition can give a difficult appearance.
Mars adds anger to the story while Pluto gives this full moon a darker theme involving imbalances of control and power of a karmic nature. The full moon is in a privileged area of the sky for fixed stars. However, a stronger influence comes from more destructive stars joining the Sun, Venus, and Mars.
The Full Moon in front of Venus.
The Sun in conjunction with Venus draws attention to your love life, your creativity, and your finances. In itself, it is a peaceful, harmonious, affectionate and sociable influence, auspicious for friendship and romance. But the polarity created by the Full Moon can also lead to relational tensions and financial pressures.
The Moon opposite Venus increases your need for love and affection regardless of the consequences. If you are single, you may be tempted to lower your expectations to avoid loneliness. You may miss details of the character in potential partners that are obvious to others. And you may not be doing very well if you do not receive true love back.
If you have a partner, friction can occur because of different moods or needs. In a difficult relationship, this could increase the risk of conflict and crisis. But in a healthy relationship, this full moon will probably expose all the latent tensions so that they can be successfully resolved.
If your emotional needs are not met by human contact, there is a potential for substitution by sugary foods, retail therapy, or addiction. This can be moderate but problematic for your morale, your waistline, and your emotional well-being. It may be necessary to spend some time alone to work on your self-esteem and your self-acceptance.
Mars and Pluto.
The Moon in front of Mars can make you moody and angry. Anger and a tendency to act without thinking, increase the risk that minor irritations will turn into arguments or fights. Intimate relationships can suffer from impulsive actions and aggressive instincts.
By channeling your energy towards hard work and competition, you will avoid hostilities. You can pursue your own passionate desires, but you will have a better chance of succeeding by compromising and taking into account the needs of others.
Pluto’s Sun plane can cause a mini-crisis or a threat that represents a turning point in your life. The pressure can reach an intense level and provoke a neurotic, obsessional or destructive behavior. An event or person can trigger this switch by depriving you of your personal power.
In relationships, you can react by trying to control and manipulate the other person, which can lead to conflict and a bruised ego. It is an evolutionary process with karmic causes and implications. A compromise is necessary because there are no yes or no answers, but only gray areas.
Venus in conjunction with Pluto brings complications and complexities in your friendships and your love life such as obsessions, possessiveness, jealousy or business. You can become involved with someone with whom it is difficult to get along but with whom it is difficult to get out.
For karmic reasons, a person can enter your life, cause a drama and then leave. You can also build relationships with people who try to control you, invade your privacy and deprive you of your freedom.
Full Moon Uranus.
Uranus is retrograde from August 11, just four days before the Full Moon.
Added to the theme of love created by Venus in front of the full moon of August 2019, this suggests excitement and sudden changes in your love life caused by an increased need for stimulation. Unpredictable behavior caused by boredom with a partner could jeopardize an important relationship.
A romance or a flash affair is possible thanks to chance meetings on the internet. Thrills can also be found through investing or shopping. However, impulsivity can lead to financial losses, not just financial benefits.
Finally, the fixed star conjunct Uranus, Hamal, gives strong passions, disturbances of love, sensitivity, a sympathetic nature, as well as habits for drinking or other harmful habits.
The Full Moon of August 2019, Summary.
The Full Moon of August 15 in front of Venus highlights your love life and your finances for the next two weeks. Although your need for love and affection is strong, the differences between you and your loved ones are likely to cause tension and disagreement.
The difficult aspects of Mars and Pluto bring anger, jealousy, intimidation, and impulsive actions. In addition, the fixed stars with the Sun, Venus, and Mars offer the potential for cruelty, heartlessness, business, and scandal. It will require patience, understanding and unconditional love to overcome the “evil” influences that would be faced by damned lovers, to access good fortune and success with the star Nashira.
A full moon has a relationship with the previous new moon. Like the Full Moon on August 15, the New Moon on July 31 and August 1 caused stress, anxiety and the potential for unexpected changes in your love life and finances.
