You’re tired of the same ol’ boring life—you want to do something spectacular! Something innovative! Something that really makes a difference! The only problem is…you’re kinda stuck at home. Who knew an entire year could kill your vibe?

Thankfully, a Full Moon in Aquarius (a like-minded air sign) on August 3 creates a dynamic connection between your solar and lunar realities, respectively. As the Sun (which symbolizes your external identity and outward expression) in fiery Leo aligns with the mysterious Moon (representing your inner world and emotional sensitivities), you’ll be inspired to fuse action with passion. What electrifies your spirit, Libra? What makes you feel creatively inspired? Artistically guided? Intuitively connected? You’re a visionary, so don’t be afraid to tap into your limitless potential. If people don’t understand you at this moment, it’s just further proof that you’re on the right track: It usually take a while for the public (read: plebeians) to appreciate the work of true genius. You got this!

Expanding on this energy, the New Moon in Leo on August 18 will present you with an exciting opportunity to broaden your horizons even further, reaching an even larger audience. How can you use existing platforms to amplify your values? In the past few months, we’ve learned that social media isn’t just a catalog of selfies: It’s also a tool for powerful social change. Whether you continue to expose existing injustice or endeavour to start your own nonprofit, this lunation is all about thinking on a macro level. Don’t forget, Libra: You’re sign is symbolized by the scales—just like Judge Judy, Simon Cowell, and maybe Kim Kardshasian when she becomes an attorney, you’re obsessed with identifying “right” from “wrong!”

But as you’re uncovering the cracks within the system, you’re going to start to realize that veracity is hard work. What’s more, there are actually quite a number of things in your life that need to be revamped—they simply aren’t working anymore! In the spirit of honesty, let me be blunt: When the Sun moves into Virgo on August 22, things are going to get intense. This won’t be anything totally unprecedented…in fact, this happens each and every year. As the Sun enters the sign right before your own (in this case, Virgo), it moves into the area of your chart associated with endings, completions, and separations. The reason for this is ultimately positive (it means your bday is right around the corner, and you're getting ready to start a brand new solar cycle!), but while you’re experiencing it, you’ll be pushed to the limits. Get ready to draw a line in the sand, separating the past from the future. Yes, you may shed a few tears—but trust that it will be totally worth it, Libra love. At the end of the day, you’re basically trading in your existing realities for a full-blown upgrade—and you’ll be glad you did!
