The full moon on Thursday, August 15, 2019, at 22° Aquarius is opposite Venus. While your need for love and affection grows stronger, any underlying relationship tension is likely to worsen, increasing stress levels and causing drama.
The August 2019 full moon also brings the potential for anger, jealousy, intimidation, and impulsive actions. You may already be experiencing stress, anxiety and unexpected changes in your love life from the July 31 new moon. This highlights the need for patience, understanding, and unconditional love over the coming two weeks.
Full Moon Meaning
Sun opposite Moon brings your home, family and intimate relationships into sharper focus for the following two weeks of this moon phase. Opposing forces such as work versus home, or what you need versus what you want, create inner tension and external pressures. This can lead to conflict and crises that drain your energy.
The lunar qualities of emotions and instincts reach their peak at a full moon. So use your increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome any relationship challenges. Subconscious awareness allows for an impartial and balanced look at your personal relationships. You will clearly see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony.
Full Moon August 2019 Astrology
The August 15 full moon at 22°24′ Aquarius is most affected by Venus, the planet of love. The chart below shows the full moon is opposite Venus by only 0°20′ orb which is very strong. While Venus has a soft, loving influence, the opposition makes this a challenging moon phase.
Mars adds some anger to the love story while Pluto gives this full moon a darker theme involving control and power imbalances of a karmic nature. The full moon is in a fortunate area of the sky for fixed stars. However, a stronger influence comes from more destructive stars joining the Sun, Venus, and Mars.
