If you're into astronomical events, you'll definitely want to mark your calendar for Aug. 26: that's the night a full moon will be rising. Full moons are not only amazing to look at (as long as it's a clear night), but they also come with energy and vibes that can affect everyone. A full moon can be an emotional time for everyone, so the energy can be either positive or negative, depending on how you use it. If you're in a calm state of mind, yon can expect positive energy, but if you're not... things might get a little hairy. Of course, the full moon affects everyone differently, even according to your horoscope. There are actually some zodiac signs that the August full moon will affect more than others.
The August full moon is known as the "Sturgeon Moon," according to the Old Farmer's Almanac, because sturgeon fish are more easily caught in late August/early September. Bustle spoke with astrologer Cindy Mckean, who said that after all of the planetary retrogrades we dealt with this summer, "this upcoming full moon is a welcome mild relief from the dizzying dances of the stellar bodies above our heads." Mckean adds that a full moon "is a time for completions, endings, harvesting, and closure." She said that this is the time when you should get closure on anything that's been bothering you.
According to Forever Conscious, this Pisces full moon is "one of the most beautiful full moons of the year and has wonderful prosperous, romantic, and creative energy that we all get to enjoy." That certainly sounds like something to look forward to! This full moon will give us all the energy and drive we need to get moving on the goals we made during the positive energy we got from the partial solar eclipse this month. Overall, it's a time for positive experiences and changes.
