Why does the moon sometimes appear to us as a full moon?

If the sun and moon are in opposition to each other as seen from earth, i.e. in opposite directions, we call this a full moon. The earth is then between the sun and the moon, so that we can see the full, sunlit side of our satellite. That is why it appears to us to be circular and full and not, as is usually the case, as a sickle or semicircle. Two to four times a year, the moon is also on the plane of the earth’s orbit, the so-called ecliptic. If this is the case, the earth casts a shadow on the celestial body and we speak of a lunar eclipse, which can be either partial or total. There are around 29.5 days between two full moon phases.

On Friday, August 12th, the Moon does not cross the Earth’s cliptic and we have a regular Full Moon. The exact time is early in the morning in Central Europe, at 3.36 a.m., in our perception the nights from Thursday to Friday and from Friday to Saturday will appear like full moon nights. At the high point of the moon phase, the satellite in the sign of the zodiac Aquarius is in ascending motion.

In German, the August full moon is traditionally called the harvest moon, since the grain harvest is or was usually brought in at this time of year. The Algonquin, an indigenous people of today’s Canada, christened it sturgeon moon, because in August the waters in their homeland were particularly rich in sturgeon – the breeding season of the fish usually falls in spring and summer. Like most moon names, the name for the August moon in the Germanic culture is based on agriculture, while in America it is inspired by nature.

According to the horoscope, this forthcoming full moon has a particularly positive effect on the following zodiac signs.

The full moon gives Pisces a lot of courage and imagination. An excellent combination, not only to let ideas pass by, but also to pick up on one or the other and pursue it further. Believe in yourself and your dreams because they will definitely point you in the right direction.


Tauruses are very good at recognizing themselves during the full moon – both the sides of themselves they like and those they don’t usually like to see. However, now you find it easier than usual to feel self-compassion and see yourself as a friend who you love and accept for who they are, rather than expecting them to change. Perhaps you can keep this perspective, it can benefit you greatly.


The full moon conveys strength, self-confidence and clarity to Sagittarians.

You feel authentic and just like yourself. A sign that you are doing everything right and the best prerequisite for being happy.
