It happens every month
Like The New Moon, The Full Moon every month has an exact time when it arrives -- the moment The Moon precisely opposes The Sun in the sky. Visually, The Full Moon hangs around for several days -- the day before the event, the day of and the day after, you'll hardly notice the difference.
It's like re-runs and repeats. If you miss one showing, you get another chance ... or two ... or more.
Basic Stuff About the Full Moon
It gives you the basics and saves lots of time
When The Full Moon rises, scoot outside around dusk or after dark and have a look. Full Moon rises are some of the summer season's best shows. They're beautiful; they're easy to see; they're free. Do pause from time to time to admire one -- or two -- or more ... for yourself.
Even pale Winter moon rises have a special beauty, a bright circle of luminous white in the cold, dark sky. Whatever the season, make a spot on your schedule. The show begins at dusk.

Appreciating the Full Moon ---> It happens every month ---> Like The New Moon, The Full Moon every month has an exact time when it arrives -- the moment The Moon precisely opposes The Sun in the sky. Visually, The Full Moon hangs around for several days -- the day before the event, the day of and the day after, you'll hardly notice the difference. It's like re-runs and repeats. If you miss one showing, you get another chance ... or two ... or more.
Basic Stuff About the Full Moon in Astrology ---> At least one Full Moon in every sign ---> * There will be at least one Full Moon in every Zodiac sign -- but not necessarily one every month. Sometimes -- rarely, but sometimes -- February gets skipped. Also sometimes -- rarely, but sometimes -- there will be two Full Moons in a Zodiac sign -- one very near the beginning and the other very near the end. ---> * Full Moons form when the Moon is directly opposite the Sun in the sky. As one rises in the East, the other sets in the West, because at the Full Moon the Sun and Moon are on opposite horizons. (That's what an "opposition" means.
Quick Notes on the Full Moon -- It gives you the basics and saves lots of time ---> It's complicated ---> Full Moons accompany a time of complex emotions and concerns. There's often a lot going on when a Full Moon arrives ... activities, interests and commitments on the outside, and ambivalence, confusion and a distinct level of concern and distress on the inside. Full Moons are not comfortable in the way that the New Moon time will be. Full Moons are times of pressure and division. You want one thing, but you also want something else -- and Life, for one reason or another, is forcing you to make a choice. You either cannot have both desires -- you can't ....
The Full Moon
* Shadows in the Moonlight -- The Full Moon and its Testy Temper ---> The Sun Opposing The Moon Who you are now vs. who you used to be ---> The aspect of the Sun opposing the Moon is the classic celestial show the rest of the world calls The Full Moon. In Astrology, The Full Moon highlights tension between two conflicting desires, ambitions, requirements, or sets of values -- each a necessary part of life, and each somehow a problem for the other. In this, as in all oppositions, you need a compromise to try and meet the needs of both elements. Here you're working with ego desires, personal ambitions, and your wish to feel important and valuable ....
* Fractiousness and Fracture Lines: The Full Moon -- The crisis is predictable. It happens every month. ---> One of life's great divides ---> All Full Moons involve some kind of conflict. Usually, as the Full Moon forms ... and for several nights following, you feel pulled in two directions at once, required to try and serve two masters ... no matter how impossible you know that is -- logically. Life's demands in two opposing / competing areas become equally insistent and intense. They are always familiar. You've played this game before. Maybe you live with them constantly. (Were you born under a Full Moon? Do you have oppositions in your Natal Chart? Do you have a partner, friend or ....
* Full Moon Conflicts -- Full Moon Tension through the Signs ---> Full Moon Conflicts ---> Aries Sun / Libra Moon = My ambitions, my drive for self-definition, my need to assert myself and my independence vs. my need to take other people into account, my desire for meaningful partnerships, my habitual efforts to compromise, keep the peace, and get along. When stressed, the attitude of the Aries Sun is aggressive, bossy, and self-centered, and that of the Libra Moon is manipulative and pouting. Taurus Sun / Scorpio Moon = My income interests, my property rights and possessions, my desire to use my resources for my own benefit ....
Understanding The Full Moon -- For Everyone -- A Conflict in Values ---> Understanding The Full Moon ---> Let's talk about the meaning, energy and dynamics of the Full Moon -- any full moon. We get one every month and while the themes and interests change each time, some things stay constant. Full Moons are about choices -- achieving balance between opposing needs, priorities, interests and life strategies. Each pair contains two extreme sets of ideas that balance somewhere in the middle. Your job is to balance them in your life in ways that work for you. That place won't be right smack in the middle, but somewhere ....

From the Blogs, Ezines
From EDA: Full Moon Energy -- From Everyday Astrology ---> Everyday Astrology December 1, 2020 Full Moon Energy ---> It's easy to get caught up in the press & swirl of activity, life's pressures, your public responsibilities & professional demands. Outside expectations have power. So do other people, and during every Full Moon crisis, they & their interests occupy one side of the issue, one end of the spectrum -- & somehow you're stuck on the other end, besieged & cornered. Alone maybe. Trapped. It's not a good feeling, & yes it can make people nuts. If they realize it. If they have time & are wise enough to ....
From EDA: The Full Moon -- From Everyday Astrology ---> Everyday Astrology July 24, 2021 The Full Moon ---> So, does the Full Moon really affect human behavior & psychology? Does anything in the real world change when the Sun & Moon face off against each other? Are the attitudes & actions common during the full moon every month really the foundation for the word & concept of "lunacy?" Is the time-honored connection between lunar & lunatic just an ancient misunderstanding? To be charitable, let's say the jury is out on that question. There are supposedly "scientific" papers that say no, it's a myth.
Musings on the Full Moon Series
Musings on the Full Moon 1 -- Working with our closest celestial neighbor ---> It happens every month ---> The Full Moon is an unmistakable sight, one of the heaven's most awesome shows. There is at least one full moon every month. Every 2 - 3 years we get a second one in a calendar month. In all, we get 12 - 13 a year. The Full Moon is the visual climax of the Moon's monthly tango with the Sun -- the point at which the Moon and The Sun oppose one another in the sky. As one rises in the East, the other sets in the West -- and for a couple of days before and after the exact peak, as I said, the display is spectacular. The Full Moon is the point ....
Musings on the Full Moon 2 -- Conflict and confrontation ---> A conflict of opposites ---> For obvious reasons, Astrologers see the Full Moon as an opposition -- an aspect of confrontation and projection, and it is one of the highlights that graces every sign. Every month as the Full Moon forms, the Sun in one sign -- and the interests and qualities it represents, confronts the Moon in the opposite sign -- with a conflicting agenda of needs and desires.
Musings on the Full Moon 3 -- A different, special energy ---> Full Moon energy is real & different ---> Over the years, I've written lots of stuff about full moons, the visual spectacle they provide, the special energy they carry ... & why they have such a notorious reputation. "Logical types" insist the whole idea is silly, that Full Moon energy is no different than any other. They say, "It's all in your head," like that solves the problem. It's one hazard of life on the ....
