DO: Finish Passion Projects

Full moon energy is great for finishing projects. With the passionate Aquarius full moon supercharging fierce Leo vibes, it’s time to put final touches on your new art piece or launch a professional venture.

DON’T: Isolate From Others

Despite being the sign that rules friendships, Aquarius is often the lone wolf of the zodiac. But rather than retreat from others this month, connect in your community. Organize an outing with your besties.

Venus, the planet of all things love and affection, enters sultry Leo in August, making this steamy lunation ripe for romance. The flirtatious transit could give you confidence to make the first move.

DON’T: Ignore Emotions

Full moons heighten our feelings, so things could feel extra sensitive around Aug. 11, especially since la Luna is in analytical Aquarius. Allow yourself to feel your emotions without intellectualizing them.
