August 1st & 2nd: Full Moon Of Wishes

“With this Full Moon, we can invoke the power of appreciation so that we won’t be forced to become appreciative.” — @ARIKXANDER

Hi Stargazers!

During Leo season, we are called to grow and move forward. During the full moon of Leo season, we are really confronted with major egotistical themes. This year, it’s all about appreciation.

What is appreciation? It’s the greatest protection from losing things! With this Full Moon, we can invoke the power of appreciation so that we won’t be forced to become appreciative. We all have people in our lives we tend to underappreciate. These people usually don’t create a lot of drama for us and we tend to take them for granted.

Horrible! We might text or just make public gestures of appreciation, but true appreciation needs no audience, in fact, true appreciation is just felt. So what can we do about it? Well, this Full Moon will help each of us to remove these negative patterns of non-appreciation and thereby vulnerability to loss.

What does the full moon mean?

There is a reason why many people feel out of balance during a Full Moon: It is a time of great transformative energy, and most people are not equipped to handle it. This is why I offer my Full Moon Virtual Rituals, so that anyone may safely access this lunar power to dismantle challenges and activate strengths and virtues associated with the archetype in focus. In these Virtual Rituals, I give teaching, lead a workshop, and guide us through a powerful meditation.

Although every Full Moon amplifies the power to melt down obstacles, each lunar event has a unique planetary configuration and thus unique transformative qualities.

This Full Moon is connecting us to the power of appreciation and gratitude by melting down any doubt around it. You may inhale the Aquarius Essential Oil Blend to help transcend any form of doubt.

The question of this quest

In DASH® Astrology, the Full Moon is a time of reflection, when each of the archetypes asks us a specific question to assist us on our quest. In order to see which obstacles we need to remove, each Full Moon poses a unique question for reflection, as the sun and moon are in opposition – reflecting back to each other the Light of Truth. In this particular cycle, we can access the best of us beyond any quality of duality, by asking ourselves the following question:

“How do I understand the proverb: “Little drops of water, little grains of sand, make the mighty ocean and the pleasant land”?”

For more insight and spiritual growth join in my Virtual Ritual to be guided through an obstacle removing meditation:


It’s about the little details that make up the bigger picture. Right? Be thankful for the little things so that you won’t lose the big things. Change is the only constant in this world, and all we can do is aim for a constant change for the better. Many planets are acting a bit stubborn during this Full Moon, but we can shift this stubbornness into perseverance when we accept that change is a natural part of life, we can automatically begin to already appreciate each moment for its unrepeatable uniqueness. The ego has a hard time accepting this because it wants us to feel stuck and ungrateful.

Wishes granted vs. taking wishes for granted

We each have so many wishes that are granted on a daily basis, we just don’t see them. The universe wants to open your eyes to the blessings and granted wishes that you take for granted. The gift that comes from this is a heightened vibration and the ability to have even more wishes granted.

Just think of all the things that aren’t happening in your life right now. And though you may not like that, I am sure things could be worse. Those things that aren’t happening need to be appreciated because they are granted wishes. Even if you’re not aware of it, your subconscious, your moon, is. So give thanks and make more wishes!

For every unanswered wish exist at least 10 granted wishes.

Full moon aspects

There is a T-Square pattern in the Full Moon chart. This indicates that there is some unconventional perspective or information coming from out of the blue. The best way to balance an appreciation for things unseen is with spontaneity and appreciation for no reason whatsoever. This attitude will allow for the blinders to be lifted. The more you see, the more appreciation you’ll have and the more blessings you have.

There is some negative energy lurking within the realm of immaturity. Avoid mini-wars on any level as that could lead to a breakout on a larger level. Remember, the world is a reflection of our collective consciousness and it’s in the source where we need to do the work if we want to see positive change.

Many planets are still in retrograde motion, asking us to move within and look at what we need to ignite on the inside. The chart of the Full Moon is also focused on self-improvement and introversion, so don’t feel bad if you feel like staying with yourself. The planets Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto are holding us to our word to be better, while the Sun is putting our focus on who or what we need to be more appreciative of.

Finally, the Sun, Mars, Saturn, and Neptune are all in a state of homecoming, meaning that they are in their sign of rulership. This is a huge collective reset. I hope you have found this complimentary forecast useful and insightful. If you want to give back and support my work, please consider a donation for this article.
