full moon // august


Grain Moon
Wednesday, August 1st, 8:27am PST

The month of August is an exciting one for full moons! At the end of this month there will be a Blue Moon, which is a second full moon that occurs within the same month (it's not just my favorite Elvis song). This occurrence happens around every 19 years! So, lucky us, we get to feel the intensity of two full moons in one month! ha

Speaking of intensity, I don't know one person who isn't being faced with some pretty deep and difficult stuff right now. I feel like it is a time when we are all bumping up against some really intense energies, and life long lessons are knocking on our door, even louder. It's time to learn the lesson, which can be really hard to face for some of us. We are wading our way through the shadow, use the light of the full moon to guide you. Nothing ever goes away until it teaches us what we need to know. I know I am trying to be fearless in the things I am facing, and running towards it all. Some days this is challenging, but I know there is no other choice. I'm not willing to go around it anymore, I must go through it. On my most difficult day, when I am looking it all in the eye, I try to remember that the way through it is love. Sending the lessons love (or the people who are showing up to teach me the lessons), sending the parts of myself and emotions that are stirring love, sending love to myself and to the universe. And trust. Trusting that there is something greater on it's way, and that I am being supported and guided by spirit.  

Also, be creative. Out create what you are going through. Move the energy with expression. 

Given that this full moon is in the sign of Aquarius, you are likely to be paying more attention to your own needs and listening and honoring your own heart. Figuring out what changes need to be made so that the relationships you have in your life become more supportive of you and you hearts desires.

Also know that during full moons, and sometimes the days surrounding them, emotions and energies are more intense. It is also a good time to check in with your New Moon wishes you made in July. 

Don't forget tonight is the night to put out any rocks or minerals to be cleansed. 

Happy Full Moon
love to you all


  1. This resonates with me in a big way. It's been a strange week of things breaking lose, or just plain breaking. Even friends of mine with no big troubles this week have complained of feeling tired or anxious. Looking forward into things settling into place under a new moon.
    All the best,

  2. HI Alyssa, thanks for commenting. yes, something is in the air, and effecting everyone. i too felt a little anxious around the full moon. it's good to just be aware of our feelings and what is happening in the universe. we are all connected.
    here is to a new week! and looking ahead to a kinder, gentler new moon! :)
