The Full Moon in your sign that took place on July 24th is paired with another one on August 22nd and the period in between is vital for working out where you stand and how you want relationships to be.

Besides you might find those close to you are creating higher stakes, issuing ultimatums or acting out in some way. Don’t be afraid to create a new world order.
Whilst you may be so busy with work or other wheels-in-motion issues that it’s hard to stop and think, there’s no doubt that someone close to you requires a good deal of attention. You might find you’ve got a sparring partner on the 19th or that you just enjoy a healthy exchange of opinion or advice. At Full Moon you simply wish to cut yourself some slack as some form of retreat beckons, maybe just some time out, a disappearing act or activities that feed your soul and replenish your spirits.
