August begins in the Leo season, starting the month out with flamboyant fire energy. We are working through the first part of the month by harnessing all that is big, bright, and beautiful. Later in the month, we shift into Virgo where the organizational, earthy vibes abound.

The New Moon on Sunday, August 8th will heighten the bright solar energy even more. This moon is where you want to make goals that focus on your gifts, your friends, and your visibility.

The Full Moon on August 22nd, in the sign of Aquarius, blows some fresh air into the very end of Leo season. This moon is the second Full Moon in Aquarius of a back-to-back set, tying the energy up in a super expansive feeling phase.

August 2021 New and Full Moon Guidance

August New Moon + Crystal Guidance

The New Moon on August 8th is in Leo, perfect for calling in manifestations that center around personal goals, visibility, and socialization. Self-expression is important for Leo, so working on things that you may have put on the back burner in regards to your own creative expressions can be very soothing this season.

It is a perfect time to make big plans, set the stage for your best life, and manifest your new beginnings starting right now. Be audacious and bold with your goals, and gather up all the confidence you will need to get visible and bring opportunity right to your front door.

August Full Moon + Crystal Guidance

This Full Moon in Aquarius on August 22nd is the second Aquarius Full Moon, with the first being at the end of July. The free, mold-breaking energy that we brought forth during the last Full Moon is continued and compacted in an ultra Aquarian energy bundle.

Full Moons want us to release what is no longer serving us, and Aquarius is the ultimate in embracing ourselves in all of our differences, weirdness, and individuality. Take that self-expressive energy from the New Moon in Leo earlier this month and wrap yourself in love for your rebellious, bright-shining self.
