August Horoscope: Double trouble on the celestial horizon!

Jul 29, 2023

A special lunar event is on its way with two Sturgeon Supermoons set to light up the skies in August, causing double trouble for many of us!

This month expect extra turbulence in your lives as Supermoons are like full moons on steroids, and our emotions could blow up in the same way if we’re not careful.

The first Sturgeon Supermoon will grace our skies in the early hours of Wednesday, August 2nd, while the second, the Blue Sturgeon Supermoon, close to midday on August 31st.

Supermoons are associated with flooding and earth changes, and our own emotions will feel similar effects – they’ll be in overdrive!

So, watch out for yourself, and nurture yourself by managing your stress levels and trying not to take on too much – go for a quiet walk in nature.

While the spiritual effects of the supermoons will be felt by everyone, because the first appears in the zodiac sign of Aquarius – Aquarians, Taureans, Leos and Scorpios can expect to experience its force most, being fixed modes.

More turbulence can be expected, as Aquarius is ruled by Uranus where volatility, rebelliousness and shocking happenings occur, especially if there are corresponding influences in a person’s chart.

This supermoon is in Aquarius, the “water bearer,” which means although Aquarians spend lots of time in the mental realms, they carry deep-seated emotions.

Aquarius is an air sign and brings emotions from your subconscious into your mind; these are things you need to spend time thinking deeply about.

A full moon always brings some form of transformation for everyone and as Aquarius is co-ruled by Saturn (ancient ruler) and Uranus (modern ruler), Aquarians and Capricorns could feel this most.

Stubbornness can be expected, and people may really dig their toes into the ground over an issue, and we could have unreasonable arguments with others – particularly Taureans.

The second supermoon on August 31st appears in the sign of dreamy Pisces and people can expect an extra boost of cosmic drama, as Pisces is associated with daydreams, illusions, and intuition.

Pisceans go the with flow and are very emotional – they appeal to their emotions and intuition and are spiritual people, ruled by Neptune and usually sensitive.

Spirituality will also be amplified during this time, and being a mutable sign other signs especially affected will be Gemini, Virgo and Sagittarius.
