August Full Moon Influences
The first of April is “Lammas”, which is the first harvest festival in the Pagan calendar. This festival is sometimes celebrated by Christian faiths, both use it as a mark of thanksgiving, where bread is baked and shared with the community as a mark of prosperity and a sign of love. Honouring the early harvest and the anticipation for more bounty to come.
This harvest festival traditionally lasts for around three to four days, drawing in that Aquarian energy of community and prosperity. A Moon which falls on a Monday, its name imbued with a nurturing family-focused energy, this will likely play out in focusing on logistics and adjusting to new dynamics within the family or your friendship circles. Venus, Mercury and Mars are currently direct. Mars retrograde shadow period starts in the next few weeks, so while it is direct in Aries, it’s a good time to push forward and finish any projects which need tidying up.
Actions To Take
Now will be a great time to push forward with creative projects, grow your social media and online community and reach out to your friends and family, to seek solidarity and togetherness. This Moon will put a focus on what you want to feel, rather than how you actually feel.
You may want to experience romance or togetherness and invest in your community. However, your actual feelings may be withdrawn or flat and the thought of love may be far more interesting than the act of being in love during this moon.
A great way to work with this energy is through rituals, like meditation, candle lit baths or enjoyable physical experiences, like playing sports, dancing or cycling. Because of Aquarius’ positive disposition we can expect luck and good fortune around this time. Though this might not be filled with emotion, it could certainly bring a feeling of prosperity into our lives for the following week. The next few days are also a great time to write and express your desires or tell your story.
