3 Signs That'll Vibe With August's Wacky Aquarius Full Moon—and 3 That Definitely Won't

The full sturgeon moon in eccentric Aquarius appears on August 15 at 5:29am PT, giving new meaning to “working together.” This humanitarian sign has a tendency to draw on our goals for social outreach, and paired with the sun in dramatic Leo—a sign that loves to highlight any shenanigans and take them to the next level—there’s a lot of power behind this full moon.

There’s some nervous tension as Mercury (planet of communication) squares Aquarius’s power planet, Uranus (planet of rebellion), on the sixteenth, which will inject its own share of weirdness to the mix. Luckily though, Mars enters responsible Virgo on the seventeenth, adding some voice of reason to the mix as you embrace Aquarius’s energy toward change and social justice.

3 Signs That Will Benefit From the Aquarius Full Moon

With the moon in an air sign, the sun in fire, and Mars in a steady earth sign, most of the zodiac will find their place during this moon. But because of Aquarius’s energetic and changeable attitude, Leo, Aquarius,and Sagittarius will have the easiest time adjusting to this moon’s eccentricities.

3 Signs That Will Have Difficulty With the Aquarius Full Moon 

However, the more shy or rule-abiding signs (Cancer, Scorpio, and Capricorn) will have difficulty falling into the collaborative energy of the Aquarius full moon. They may find it hard to keep up with the changes this moon phase will inevitably throw at them.

Whatever you do, this is the best time to gather in groups to work together toward something great! (Why not make some moon water to help fuel your fire?)
