A few times a year, a month's full moon actually rises as a 'supermoon.' Physically, it means that this full moon will be about 7% larger in the sky compared to a standard full moon, making it quite the beautiful sight.
Astrologically, it also means that this moon has an extra surge of celestial strength within it, meaning we're all sure to feel the effects. This month, it means we'll all walk away with a better sense of self. Or, at least, a bit more confidence.
To find out just how much influence the celestial systems have over our lives, look into getting a birth chart reading. Using just your date of birth, you can learn hidden secrets about your life's journey that can help you navigate any uncertain waters.
The Strength Of The Moon
On August 1st, the Full Super Sturgeon Moon will be rising in Aquarius. Right in the middle of Leo season, this moon has immense power in the realms of personal expression and individuality, wanting to help us set up healthy personal habits for future seasons to come.
The Sturgeon Moon encourages us to express ourselves fully and freely. Its rising in Aquarius and presence during Leo season makes this encouragement stronger and assures we'll see great rewards if we follow that urge.
Though that's the grand message for us all, there is still some more specific advice for each of the signs for how they can best use the power imbued this supermoon.
You know you're the go-getter of the zodiac; never shy to voice your bold thoughts, especially when among like-minded friends. In fact, those friends are what this supermoon is asking you to focus on this season.
Shift into a more social, community-focused mindset, forget about taking the lead and instead let yourself be brought along for the ride. You'll still be allowed to voice your opinions and spark intellectual discussion, but if you take the time to listen more than you speak, you'll learn a lot from your peers.
This full moon will be illuminating your 10th house, putting your professional path under the spotlight. You enjoy a role that gives you a bit of a platform, be that managerial in essence or facing the public, but that talent to always use an advantage to its fullest potential will be highlighted even further this season.
Get ready for all eyes and ears to be on you in the coming weeks, embrace that attention and use it to spread a good word. Whether it's an important work presentation or friends coming to you for advice, now's the time they'll really listen, so give them something worth listening to.
Gemini, this supermoon will bring heightened awareness to the ways you handle your steadfast, but non-traditional beliefs. Your love for fresh and unconventional views will get a cosmic boost, meaning you'll feel all the more vindicated in them.
This is a time for you to express yourself freely, freer than you've ever felt, especially on topics that are close to your heart but often overlooked. Not only will you be able to dive deeper within yourself and better understand your role within these beliefs, but others will want to listen, feeling enlightened by your alternative way of life.
This supermoon will be shining a bright, perhaps uncomfortable light onto your finances, Cancer. It's not meant to shame you! It actually wants to help, hoping to lead you toward weak spots in your financial setup that you can patch and move on from. This isn't just about your personal spending habits either, but the boundaries you set with others too.
If you've been too accessible lately, it's okay to reevaluate and protect your not just your money, but your energy. Find that perfect balance between giving and keeping for yourself. You can still help others in need without giving away so much that you're also now in need. It's valiant of you to be so generous, but don't forget that you always come first!
For Leos, this supermoon will be all about romance. Leo season so far has had you deep in matters of the heart, either romantically, platonically, or just navigating yourself solo and learning what you want out of future social endeavors. That trend will keep going with the strength of this moon.
You've learned that you need someone who respects your freedom and independence. You aren't into people who try to dull your sparkle or smother your fires. You crave those who truly see and hear you, just as you are. This moon encourages you to hold onto these truths and never settle for anyone who doesn't accept all of who you are.
With the supermoon entering your sixth house of work, wellbeing, and routine, you'll be closely examining your daily habits. Virgos tend to be creatures of habit anyway, meticulous ones too, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't stop to examine your current rituals.
See which ones no longer serve you, get rid of them and replace them with something new. Routine is comfortable, but staying that comfortable forever stifles growth. In changing your habits, you'll feel a fresh surge of creativity and inspiration, which will be a welcome change of pace! You'll feel stimulated and ready to take on more of the world with your fresh new outlook.
The August full moon asks you, Libra, to look at your current passions and stretch them further. In what ways can you improve upon your creative hobbies? What avenues could they take? Are there other, similar project types you could try?
Surround yourself with those who ignite your inspiration and challenge your perspectives. Embrace new experiences and exciting encounters. This is the perfect moment to find your true, authentic self in the pursuit of fulfilling interests. Who knows how you'll grow and evolve?
Scorpio, the full moon in Aquarius lands in your fourth house, which is the house that's ironically about one's home. This means you should be focusing this season on your physical living space.
You're all about calculated decisions, but today, you'll explore adding a touch of freedom and innovation to your private world. No rush for big changes, though. Allow your creativity to stew and wait for ideas to come to you, visualize what your idea space would look like and create it! When you love your home, your safe haven, you'll find thoughts flow more freely when you're there.
This full moon will open the stage for you to express your thoughts, Sagittarius. In fact, it will be invited, as you'll find you have more of an audience than you're normally used to. This discussions you foster will be done so with an open mine, and with an equal willingness to listen versus speak.
Though you oftentimes feel like your ideas are too unconventional or out of the box, you shouldn't hold back this time 'round! Express yourself as freely as you'e always dreamed you could and you'll find likeminded folk everywhere you go.
This moon's light will glow brightly upon Capricorn's monetary resources. You tend to be pretty traditional and simple when it comes to money, which is good! Sticking to tried and true basics is a fine way to manage things as it keeps your mind clear and free of stress.
That being said, full moons are good for starting something new, something fresh. It welcomes you to think outside the realm of what you usually stick to. Look into new ways you can use the resources you have on hand, ways to invest your money, whatever you think may help you make the most of what you have. You don't have to do anything too drastic, just think about it, see where those thoughts take you!
The sturgeon full moon will be rising in your first house, Aquarius, which means it's time to embrace your truest self. You've generally never had issues when it comes to voicing your opinion expressing yourself, always one to celebrate individuality, but now's the time to harness that power and help life up others.
By living your life boldly, fearlessly, you'll be inspiring those around you without even trying, encouraging them to blaze their own path just as you're doing. Don't let these perceptions of others, even if they're positive, sway you in any way though. This journey is for you and you alone. Helping others do the same along the way is just a bonus.
This full moon, you'll finally feel that push to forge on a head on your own, set out on your own unique path without holding onto the hands of others. This might feel frightening to you, Pisces, so used to having company, but don't let it stress you out too much. Time spent alone is imperative to spiritual growth.
Listen to your idle thoughts, listen to your body, your heart. Practice things like journalling, creative endeavors, whatever it is that will have you focusing on yourself. Give yourself some space from others, let your own ideas fly! Once you become untethered from the crowd, your strength will blossom.
Confidence In Our Own Self
Going into this supermoon with the encouragement to voice our truest selves, we have to remember that not everyone is going to approve of this. Not everyone will see value in our strength, in our individuality, and our fearlessness of expression. The good news is that those people don't matter in the slightest when it comes to our own journey.
It stings when people don't approve of who we are, but that judgement should impede us anyway. We owe it to ourselves to live at our largest, our truest, and our happiest.
