On August 3rd, the Full Sturgeon Moon in Aquarius is happening.
This full moon will urge you to take a break from your responsibilities and have fun.
The full moon in Aquarius affects all zodiac signs, but Aquarius and Leo will feel it the most.
Summer is always a great time to be with friends and family, but yeah, things have been a bit different this year. While there are only so many things you can control these days, life—and the universe—is about to send some carefree, socializing-heavy vibes your way.
Those vibes come in the form of a full moon happening on August 3rd. This particular full moon is called the Full Sturgeon Moon, and it’s going down (up?) in the sign of Aquarius.
During this full moon, you’ll be all about letting loose and just trying to enjoy life, according to Donna Page, a certified astrologer in Atlanta. But there’s a lot more to it than that, naturally.
Here’s what else your zodiac sign can expect from the Full Sturgeon Moon in Aquarius, plus how it can affect your future.
So, what is the Full Sturgeon Moon in Aquarius?
Backing up for a second: As you probably know from checking out the night sky, the moon goes through different phases. When it’s a full moon, it looks like a big ol’ ball of brightness in the sky.
The Algonquin people, who were prominent along the Atlantic Coast and into the interior along the St. Lawrence River and around the Great Lakes, had a tradition of naming each full moon. This particular one is called the Full Sturgeon Moon because the giant sturgeon (a type of fish) were usually more abundant in lakes around this time of year, according to the Farmer’s Almanac. FYI: this full moon is also called The Full Green Corn Moon and Blueberry Moon, JIC you prefer your moons to have a produce spin.
How will the Full Sturgeon Moon in Aquarius affect your zodiac sign?
There’s actually a lot happening with this full moon. On the big-picture level, you just want to live on a more carefree, do-what-you-want basis. Like, why do you have to be so friggin’ responsible all the time? Just take a beat before getting bangs on a whim (rarely a good idea) or quitting your job on the spot (ditto)—that’s probably not going to lead to the outcome you’re hoping for.
Instead, focus on finding moments for yourself to bliss out while reading a good book or dive into a guilty pleasure TV show (Selling Sunset season three premieres so soon!). Whatever makes you happy, make time for it.
This overall vibe can seep into a bunch of different areas of your life. On the social front, you’ll be down for pretty much every interaction with friends, provided it's a socially-distanced sitch, of course. Six-feet-apart picnic in the park, anyone?
You’ll also crave deepening your connections with others. Small talk is great and all, but you really want to get to the heart of what makes people tick. Instead of chatting about the weather (hint: it's probably hot), you'll be more inclined to ask your pals and even acquaintances questions that reveal their values and dreams.
You’ll also be hyper aware of the fact that this is the last unofficial month of summer. Just don’t try to cram in too much summery stuff, or you’ll get exhausted, mkay?
On the work front, that's where things get a little weird. You’ll suddenly find it hard to buckle down and stay focused. Why are you in this job, anyway? Are you just dealing with some end-of-summer distractions, or are you craving a change on the work front? Think on it for a bit… just don't make any drastic changes before you've got another gig lined up.
How will the Full Sturgeon Moon in Aquarius impact your future?
TBH, you need this. You need a break after months(!) of intense thoughts and feelings. Going forward, it’ll be in the back of your mind that you should probably ease up on your schedule and responsibilities a little more here and there.
All that (safe) socializing you do right now will help you form new connections with people in your circle. Maybe you’ll develop a stronger bond with your sister or start leaning more heavily again on a friend you haven’t talked to in ages. Whatever the deal, you’ll emerge from this new moon feeling more loved and supported than you have in a while.
As for work… it depends. You may find that the full moon makes you think a little harder about how you feel about your job, and it’ll push you to make a change. Or maybe you’ll realize you’re actually cool with what you’re doing and where you are in your career. Either way, it’s definitely good to have those internal convos.
When’s the next full moon?
The next full moon is on September 2nd in the sign of Pisces. During this full moon, you might be a little more sensitive than usual (hey, it happens!) while tapping into your inner creative side.
Until then, enjoy the mental break.
