Magical Meteors, August Aquarius Full Moon and the Aftermath of Mercury Retrograde.
Updated: Dec 5, 2019
I got my view of the magical meteors this week. I set my alarm to wake up from 3 to 4 AM Monday morning and got my annual prescription of the Perseid meteor shower. This meteor shower occurs every year in mid August. While some report the peak viewing days are the August 11 - 13th, in my experience of decades of stargazing, you can generally catch a glimpse of this meteor shower the entire month of August. For years on the Big Island of Hawaii, stargazing in the backyard was a source of quiet joy. These days, I paddle out in my kayak on the lake, or enjoy wild woodland adventures with friends to find shooting stars. Keep your eyes on the sky in early morning hours for best viewing!

Today’s article features August Full Moon Horoscopes below, and reminders of the Mercury Retrograde aftermath!
This month the Full Moon in Aquarius August 15, 2019 faces off to the Sun and the rest of personal planets lined up in the lavish sign of Leo. The Sun, Mercury, Mars and the love planet Venus are all aligned in the playful zodiac sign of Leo the Lion this week. This adds an emphasis on creativity and heartfelt communications.

Last month in July, the messenger planet Mercury was retrograde most of the month. Mercury Retrograde generally lasts for 3 weeks about three times a year. However, there is a shadow period, before and after the Mercury Retrograde cycle, which sometimes makes the experience of retrograde even longer. The Mercury Retrograde ‘shadow period’ ends on August 15. Imagine what was happening for you at the end of June and your dreams for summer plans. If you experienced any delays or detours, the last two weeks of August is an opportunity to reroute and enjoy!
