August has been a really beautiful month so far astrologically, but I’m starting to feel the intensity of the August 2019 full moon already. It won’t hit its peak until Aug. 15, but emotions are running high and deep. And with Venus and Mars in performative Leo this month, we’re feeling dramatic in our emotional expressions of both love and anger.
The August 2019 full moon will highlight these feelings in many interesting ways, as it will rise in the airy sign of Aquarius. Full moons are always a time of illumination and intense vibes, and it’s generally a time when we feel the urge to direct our energy outward – connecting with others and otherwise focusing on things beyond our selves. With Venus’ influence over this moon in particular (and the moon being in the highly community-focused Aquarius), we can expect to feel this energy heightened.
As mentioned, both Venus (planet of love and money) and Mars (planet of sex and war) are currently spending time alongside the sun in the fiery, passionate, attention-loving sign of Leo. Meanwhile, this full moon will be opposing these planets, reaching its peak fullness in the airy, intellectual, and aloof sign of Aquarius – making for some serious tension when it comes to our love and sex lives. This full moon’s very direct opposition to Venus is an intense one: “While your need for love and affection grows stronger, any underlying relationship tension is likely to worsen, increasing stress levels and causing drama,” explained Astrology King of this transit. “While Venus has a soft, loving influence, the opposition makes this a challenging moon phase.”
But as with all things, there is a silver lining to this transit – and if we look at the tension of this opposition as intrigue instead of negativity, we can try to work with it. Astrologer Lisa Stardust spoke with Bustle about this full moon and gave us a much more hopeful take. “This luminary is being triggered by Venus and Mars,” explains Stardust. “The juxtaposing energy will push us to fight for what we love and to assert our energies to manifesting our deepest passions. We have the power to recreate our realities under this Full Moon – use this cosmic chance wisely!”
