With summer at its peak and the Leo 2020 season in full effect, the Sun is definitely taking center stage as of lately. But on Monday, August 3, the full moon of August 2020 will rise in the sky and get all the cosmic attention, as it lights up our social lives and also gives us cosmic twists and turns.
Expect the unexpected because each zodiac sign will feel the freedom-seeking lunar energy in a unique way, and you’ll want to know how the August 2020 Full Moon will affect you. The August Full Moon takes place in visionary Aquarius, the fixed air sign of the zodiac. Aquarius’ energy is focused on the collective, so it all depends on our roles within friendships, social groups, and our communities in general.
Under the energy of this Full Moon, we must consider the well-being of our communities as a whole, whether it is the cooperative efforts of your team at work, the power dynamics between you and your roommates, or the balance of trust within your team of besties.
We’re likely to experience an emotional climax in relation to those parts of our life under this Full Moon so you might already be feeling some energy (or even tension) building up in all of the social groups that you are a part of.
This fixture will provide us with some clarity and perspective, and we will be able to keep the collective good in mind as we make decisions on how to move forward. This lunation also has difficult planetary aspects, particularly in the form of a standoff between the Full Moon and the wild child planet Uranus, which brings unexpected emotional shifts and a huge need for freedom.
We are in unpredictable emotional changes, and we will be torn between our need for freedom and our responsibilities to others so it will be important to be both adaptable and sane.
Discover how the August 2020 Full Moon will affect each zodiac sign so you get a glimpse of what’s to come.
While you may feel like you have a solid grasp of your current goals and your general place in the world, the energy of this light will open your eyes to the need to seek help from others. Don’t think that it gives your power to others, but rather strengthens it through the power of the collective.
Try to focus on what’s best for the group dynamics and keep your eyes and ears open for potential opportunities to take on something new or gain some recognition for your work.
If you wanted a new explosion of inspiration to get your mind flowing, this full moon answers your prayers, Gemini! With this luminary in another air sign, you will feel as curious about the world and hungry for knowledge as ever.
Don’t be surprised if you sign up for an online course or find yourself on the phone with friends for hours discussing a topic of interest.
And as a sensitive water sign, you have some really deep feelings, Cancer, and you tend to keep those feelings on lock, out of fear of getting hurt. The energy of this full moon is asking you to open up to the people you are closest to, as this might be exactly what you need to feel free.
You struggle with the desire to feel totally detached and independent while balancing the individual relationships that are important to you. The full moon in opposition to your sign highlights your need for freedom in partnerships, Leo, but have you ever thought that maybe your partner craves the same freedom?
You might have emotional surprises, so lean towards open communication that allows you to express your feelings while keeping an open heart to your partner.
It will be difficult to focus on your usual needs and rituals, as you are drawn to other causes that could benefit from your wisdom and gentle guidance. Find a balance by offering your services while taking care of yourself.
It’s a good time to stay open to fun new opportunities, Libra! With the full moon in the territory of another social air sign, you’ll feel light-hearted and ready to connect with others, whether that’s swiping right on a few cuties to put virtual date nights on your calendar, or just prioritizing fun activities with friends.
Focus on what brings you happiness, but don’t get too attached to the way things are. Circumstances always change, but you can be sure that the changes will be for the better in the long run.
If there is passive-aggressive tension between the people you live with or your close family, expect it to take center stage and be prepared to face it and make compromises. Emotional turmoil in such an intimate sphere is difficult for everyone, so try to find a happy solution to your goal.
Stay grounded and present in your truth, and don’t get caught up in the allure of dramatic social games. By simply being communicative and honest, you will be able to diffuse any drama with ease.
Keep an eye on your finances this weekend, Capricorn. You might need to spend some cash or give out a small loan to help someone you care about or you may just find that you’re in a financial position to promote a cause that could really use a little support and you feel obligated to do so.
Whether your cash flow changes a bit by choice or circumstance, think about your decisions, and be open-minded. Remember that money comes and goes.
The happy full moon in your sign, Aquarius! You are all about the collective good, but now is actually a good time to focus on yourself. With your governing planet, Uranus, forming a square aspect with this luminary near you, you can expect to feel its unpredictable and freedom-loving energy on an ultra-personal level.
You might feel like you have to totally change your look or your overall vibe. Embrace the changes!
You are in full dream mode under this full moon, Pisces. You will feel lost in fantasy this weekend, but keep your third eye open and your spiritual antennae healed because the universe can whisper secrets in your ear and provide you with the opportunity to feel even deeply connected to the energy that surrounds you.
Not all changes have to happen in the physical plane. Embrace your water sign spiritual power and think about ways to use it as a tool to help others.
