August 3 2020 is a full Moon in Aquarius. Air sign Aquarius rules the 11th house of friends, networks, and social values. Aquarian individuals are unique thinkers who tend not to follow convention, making this full Moon the time for innovative viewpoints, methods, and unanticipated experiences.
If challenged to apply new methods, the full Moon and Sun in Leo square Uranus in Taurus, creating a fixed T-square. There could be relationship difficulties due to conflicting opinions, lack of patience concerning responsibilities, or it’s just hard to stay on your chosen life path. But a sudden Uranus difficulty can help to discover what is bothering you to start eliminating it from your life.
Fortunately, the Leo Sun trines Mars in Aries, Mars’ powerful rulership sign. This Fire trine is favorable for new projects, there’s increased vigor and enthusiasm about motivation and goals, and physical activity of all kinds is very rewarding. Contact me for your tarot reading or astrology forecast about a new direction.
This full Moon marks the peak of summer at the solar point between Summer Solstice and Autumn Equinox. This is the time in the ancient European agricultural calendar of Lammas, meaning loaf mass, celebrating the threshing of grain and the first fruits of harvest. This full Moon is also the peak of Water Sheep month for a more gentle way of relating to others.
The Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto conjunction in Capricorn continues, placing focus on financial and political issues. Opportunities for change and awareness are for all, and are most dynamic for Air signs Aquarius, Gemini, and Libra and those born in Tiger, Horse, Sheep, and Dog years.
Happy full Moon,

August 15 2019 is a full Moon in Aquarius. Air sign Aquarius rules the 11th house of ideas, inspiration, and ideals, plus friends, groups, and the larger collective of all humanity. This full Moon, and as the lunar cycle wanes, is a good time for networking, sharing concepts, and making connections that expand your circle. Team work leads to success, and think tanks bring interesting results.
This full Moon is the peak of Monkey month to experiment and be open to all possibilities. Fine to innovate or take risks. Contact me for your tarot or astrology session about new paths.
The full Moon is opposite the Sun, Venus, and Mars in Leo. There’s Fire and passion for creativity and to accomplish goals. Just reign in Leo extravagance that focuses on a passing fancy or superficial attraction, especially under the influence of mercurial Monkey.
Full Moon energy is inspirational, and is strongest for Air signs Aquarius, Gemini, and Libra and those born in Monkey, Horse, and Dog years.

July 27 2018 is a full Moon eclipse in Aquarius. Air sign Aquarius rules the 11th house of friends, groups, and the larger collective of all humanity. And collective humanity could experience some conflict as this eclipsed full Moon conjuncts Mars that’s retrograde in Leo until August 27.
So not the best time to forge ahead, especially with communication planet Mercury retrograde, also in Leo, until August 18. But this can be a good time to work collectively and in community under the influence of Aquarius, and during this Dog year when the underdog is championed and the truth is sniffed out.
Emotions and passions are strong as the Sun in Fire sign Leo conjuncts a lunar node, meaning there’s a heightened sense of fate or destiny. The Sun, lunar node, full Moon, and Mars all square rebel planet Uranus in Taurus. There can be unexpected disruptive energy, or ego conflicts and disagreements. People could be impatient, accident prone, or jump to the wrong conclusions if there are unexpected emotional upsets.
Yet these Uranus squares can be a very liberating influence if repressed tensions come to the surface to be healed, especially during an eclipse. Contact me for your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation during this challenging lunar cycle.
Fortunately, Saturn trines Uranus offering needed stability between old and new to keep your present life structure while exploring new experiences. Even with the Uranian desire for complete freedom, this Saturn trine brings focus to maintain responsibilities.
More lucky trines are Venus trines Pluto for psychological insights about relationships, and deeper understanding of personal motivations. Jupiter trines Neptune enhancing idealism, social justice, and the quest for universal spiritual truth. Luck is strongest for Air signs Aquarius, Libra, and Gemini and those born in Tiger, Dog, Horse, and Pig years.

August 7 2017 is a full Moon and lunar eclipse. Eclipses heighten emotion, intuition, and instinct. This full Moon is in Air sign Aquarius for new ideas and ways of communication. It’s fortunate to expand your circle, and is good for new learning.
The Sun conjuncts Mars in Leo for extra energy and courage. But under the influence of Mars, people can be irritable. If this occurs, stay aware of the big picture and not fan any flames.
Fortunately, the Sun sextiles Jupiter in Libra that is lucky for relationships and brings ease with colleagues. The Sun trines Saturn in Sagittarius to organize effectively so that your efforts achieve lasting results.
August 12 to September 5
Traditionally in astrology, Mercury retrograde can be a time of miscommunication, technology problems, and items lost or misplaced. But Mercury retrograde during this Fire Phoenix (Rooster) year can be an excellent time to focus on detailed tasks such as catching up on financial matters, and doing feng shui your home or office.
From August 12 to 30, Mercury is retrograde in Earth sign Virgo. Mercury is comfortable in rulership sign Virgo. This is very good for detailed analysis and review. Plus Phoenix correlates to the western sign Virgo, so 2017 Phoenix year energy works well with Virgo’s cerebral approach.
From August 31 to September 5, Mercury retrogrades back into Fire sign Leo. Communication is direct, and you can cover much ground. Be aware if people become bossy or demanding. Should there be ego disputes, wait out the Mercury retrograde cycle. We still feel the Mercury retrograde influence until the new Moon on September 19 that begins a new lunar cycle.
Happy full Moon,

August 18 2016 at 2:26 am is a full Moon in Aquarius. Air sign Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, the planet of change and revolution. There’s a desire for freedom, for new opportunities, or a way to restructure life routine.
The Sun in Leo trines Uranus in Aries for discoveries, travels, and new ways of thinking. The full Moon sextiles Uranus bringing excitement and stimulation.
And love is in the air! Venus trines Pluto, and is opposite Neptune, for intensity of feelings coupled with psychological insights. If in a partnership, love can deepen. If single, relationships can be idealistic.
Energy is high because August 18 is a Monkey day in Monkey month during Monkey year. Mars conjunct Saturn in Sagittarius slows Monkey’s fast pace. Plus Mars and Saturn square Neptune in Pisces to be more reflective, and less brash or impulsive.
Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter in Virgo help to analyze facts and figures, all good for long-range goals and plans. Be thorough with communication, and tie up loose ends before Mercury goes retrograde on August 30 until September 21.

Lunar energy for change is felt by all, and is strongest for Air signs Aquarius, Libra, and Gemini and those born in Monkey, Rat, Dragon, and Snake years.

July 31, 2015 at 3:43 am PT is a full Moon in Aquarius, a blue Moon because it’s the second full Moon this month. But no need to be blue! The Moon is full in the inventive and freedom-loving Air sign Aquarius. Aquarians are innovative, independent, and champion social change.
This blue Moon weekend is the peak of Sheep month in Sheep year. Under the influence of diplomatic Sheep, it’s easier to network and expand your circle. But Aquarians have strong opinions, and with the blue Moon opposite the Sun and Mercury in Leo, there will be many opinions, novel ideas, and much to discuss.
Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, the planet of rebellion and change, so be open to experiment and to vary your routine. Uranus went retrograde on July 16, and goes direct on December 25, so there’s time to resolve old problems, heal resentment, and learn from past patterns or mistakes. Sometimes a change of scenery does the trick for a new vision. There can be sudden breakthroughs of perception, especially for Air signs Aquarius, Gemini, and Libra and those born in Tiger, Horse, and Dog years.
Plus love planet Venus retrogrades back into Leo until mid October, so time to express yourself. Leo loves drama and romance. Important relationships become stronger, although weaker ones may fall by the wayside.

Sunday August 10th 2014 is a Full Moon in Aquarius at 11:09 PDT. Air sign Aquarius is eclectic, unique, and one of a kind. Aquarius rules the 11th house of friends, social connections, and the larger collective of humanity.
Now is an opportune time to reach out to others, network, and expand your circle. Especially since this Full Moon sextiles Uranus, the ruling planet of Aquarius, try something different. Adding to the good fortune is Sun and Mercury trine Uranus for wide vision, discoveries about self and others, and an element of genius.
MID MONKEY MONTH
Mars conjuncts Saturn so we have to slow down. And Sun, Moon, and Mercury square Saturn for differing viewpoints and various worries. This full Moon marks the middle of Monkey month. Avoid Monkey-mind tail chasing!
Full Moon in Aquarius brings a boost of creativity for everyone, and is most beneficial for Air signs Aquarius, Gemini, and Libra and those born in Tiger, Horse, and Dog years.
Happy Full Moon,
