Full moon 2020: When is the next full moon? How does the lunar cycle affect YOU?

The next Full Moon is on Monday, August 3, at 4.58pm in the UK, with a New Moon occurring on August 19 at 6.57pm. But what does this mean for your emotions and actions? Express.co.uk spoke to Moon mentor and author of Lunar Living: Working With The Magic Of The Moon Cycles Kirsty Gallagher to find out how the lunar cycle affects your life and how you can use it to your advantage.

The Moon’s movement through its phases affects our moods, energy levels, and actions, so it’s worth knowing a Full Moon from a New Moon.

Kirsty said: “Just as the Moon affects the tides she exerts the same gravitational pull on the watery inner world of our emotions, intuition, dreams, and soul.

“On a dark Moon we will find ourselves pulled into the depths of our emotions, and on a Full Moon, our emotions are pulled up to the surface.

“Our emotions are often a good indicator of areas in life that we are out of alignment or need to make a change.

“As the Moon illuminates our inner world, she helps us to see clearly which areas of our lives need attention or where we are most stuck.”

Understanding the lunar cycle will help you to take control of your own life, Kirsty explained.

New Moon 2020

The New Moon is when the Sun, Moon and Earth line up in the sky and is the beginning of your lunar journey.

A New Moon is the perfect time for setting intentions and getting creative.

Kirsty said: “Get clear on what you want to create, manifest, and put into motion in the coming lunar cycle.

“Set your dreams, goals and intentions for the lunar month ahead. Do all you can to bring them to life during the waxing phases.”

You’ve just missed a Full Moon, but there’s another coming up on August 19.

Waxing moon

The waxing part of the lunar cycle is when the Moon grows bigger, brighter and bolder in the sky every night.

Kirsty said: “Work with the growing light and energy of the Waxing Moon to help your New Moon dreams and intentions come to life.

“As the Moon’s energy grows so will yours encouraging you to take action.

“Go out into the world, be seen and heard and take brave bold steps towards achieving your dreams.”

What will the next Full Moon bring?

The next Full Moon is in Aquarius, which is all about realigning with your purpose, breaking free of chains and most of all trust.

Kirsty said: “Deep trust in yourself, in life, in the synchronicities and signs that present themselves to you at all times, to the little inner voices that nudge you, to the road less travelled that you keep making excuses not to walk down.

“This Moon is here to help you to fearlessly seek your truth and to most of all find an unwavering faith in where your journey is taking you.

“It’s an illumination of all that keeps you in the nearly but not quite so that you can move forwards into all you are here to be.

“Now is the time to become the alchemist of your own life, so there couldn’t be a better time to begin working with the magic of the Moon…”

Waning Moon

The waning part of the lunar cycle is when the Moon grows smaller and smaller in the sky every night.

Kirsty said: “This is the part of the lunar cycle that we use to let go of all that stood in the way of achieving your dreams and intentions.

“Use the Moon’s waning energy to let go of doubts, fears, people, situations, beliefs and anything that stood in your way.”

You can look back on the month behind you and use your mistakes to improve your life in the next month.

Dark Moon

The Moon wanes all the way down to the dark Moon.

The dark Moon is the lowest energy point and most emotional part of the lunar cycle, said Kirsty.

She explained: “This is the end of the Waning Moon when the Moon is barely visible in the sky but hasn’t yet become new.”

Take advantage of the dark Moon to give yourself some well-earned TLC.

Kirsty said: “This is the time of the lunar cycle to rest, pause, and take your awareness inwards.

“It’s really important at this part of the cycle that you take note of your emotions and what they are trying to show and signpost you to, as this will help set your intentions for the next lunar month.”
