During August’s Full Moon, the Sun is aligned with the impulsive, reactive Uranus in Aries while the Moon confabs with cool, strategic Aquarius. There’s a duality here between thought and action, between fear of pulling the trigger and leaping before you look. One side may be hot-headed and self-absorbed, grandstanding for attention—while the other takes a more objective view, arguing that a wider, more social agenda must be honoured. It is the classical argument between the needs of one and the needs of many. But why go to extremes? Balance the two in well-considered, self-aware action with solid reason behind it, taking the needs of all into account—the results will be much better. August’s Full Moon is sometimes called the Red Moon for its penumbral lunar eclipse will take place on August 18, 2016, the second of three lunar eclipses in 2016.
