Full Moon - August 2023

Are you good at balancing? I sure hope so, because you're going to be balancing chaos and calm during this full moon.

The universe is gifting us a special celestial spectacle—the Blue Super Moon.

But wait, there's more!

Mercury's in retrograde, and Venus decided to join the retrograde party too. Haven't they heard of the saying, "Three's a crowd"?

If you're feeling like you're juggling a cosmic circus of emotions and tasks, you're not alone.

Let's unravel this extraordinary August full moon and find a little calm amid the chaos.

It's Super, It's Blue, it's Retrograde

Yes, you read that right! This full moon is a triple treat. It's super, blue, and Mercury and Venus are throwing a retrograde curveball into the mix. A super blue moon occurs when two full moons happen in the same calendar month, and the moon is at its closest point to Earth, appearing larger and brighter-just FYI. And it's kind of a big deal. This won't happen again till 2037. If you're sensing heightened stress and emotions, blame it on the cosmic convergence. It's good for the plot. Rest assured, this too shall pass. The whirlwind in your personal life will slow down, leaving you a bit wiser and more composed when everything is said and done.

This moon is in the mystical zodiac sign of Pisces, known for its dreamy and empathetic nature. Embrace your intuition and creativity during this time. Dive into artistic pursuits or simply take a moment to connect with your emotions and dreams. Art, in any form, can be therapeutic. If you're going through a tough time right now, lean on your creative avenues to get you by. Mine is clearly writing.

Back to School Vibes

With the back-to-school season on the horizon and the transition from summer to fall, the August full moon nudges you to organize your life. That dentist appointment or backyard clean-up you've been postponing? Now's the time to tackle them. While thoughtful decisions are crucial, don't overanalyze. Get the ball rolling, and the universe will lend a hand.

Yoga, Meditation, and a Cleansing Ritual

Feeling overwhelmed? Seek solace in yoga and meditation.

Try this Full Moon Meditation: Find a quiet space, light a blue candle, and visualize releasing stress and embracing clarity with every breath. This can also be done in a hot shower. Sit or stand in the shower (I love a good sit-down shower) and as the water falls over you, imagine it washing away any negativity from you down into the drain.

For an energy-balancing home ritual, start by decluttering your space. You can also choose to use sage or incense to cleanse around doorways and windows. As you cleanse, visualize releasing stagnant energy, inviting positivity to flow. Want to go a step further? Place a bowl of saltwater in each room overnight to absorb negativity. Dispose of it outside the next day.

Want to go even further??

Write down your goals, dreams, and any emotional baggage you're ready to release. Burn the paper as a symbol of letting go and making space for new beginnings. Just be sure to burn this in a responsible way and have water or a sink nearby in case your emotional baggage gets out of hand.

As the rare Blue Super Moon graces our skies, remember that the chaos it stirs is but a temporary situation. Embrace it, find your center, and seize the opportunity for transformation and growth.

May this August full moon be a reminder that even in the chaos, there is calm.
