Libra (September 23 – October 22)
It’s all about your friendships this month, Libra, and it’s exactly the type of energy your sociable, sophisticated self loves the most. In fact, there’s so much activity from your friendships this month that you can’t keep your social calendar straight! The Aquarius Full Moon will remind you that it’s important to also take time for yourself and invest in your own inner fire no matter the input of others. You’re so good at sharing energetic space with people, Libra, that sometimes you forget how you are a unique, independent individual in your own right!
Big shifts in your shared resources and secrets are at play. These are heavy themes for a typically light and bright Air sign like you. Let yourself be surprised by your depths of emotion. Sometimes it’s OK to throw a dramatic, hyper emotional tantrum. Neverending peace, love and harmony can get boring and for a sign that’s already mastered those themes like you, it doesn’t really push you to grow.
Libra AirBrush Filter for August:
Stand out from the crowd, Libra, with the Afterglow filter pack. This eye-catching 7-option set allows you to stylize your images with unique streaks of light. Try Horizon to add a red hued flare or Skyline for a dreamy streak of lavender blue light. Finally, the Gradual option gives an inexplicable all-over glow to your images.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpio, it’s your time to show up in the world and be SEEN for the magnetic, talented and ambitious being that you are. With the Sun and Venus transiting your 10th house of career, status and reputation during Leo season, it’s all about how you show up in the world this month. Let’s talk about the glow up, Scorpio, because you’re definitely experiencing one in August. You’re going to be noticed in your career for your strategic thinking and thoughtful approach. You’re also going to receive more opportunities to take center stage reputation-wise this month. It might feel uncomfortable for a sign as mysterious and secrecy-loving as you but don’t get it twisted: opportunities will abound this month and it’s important you strike while the iron is hot.
Your home life and your feelings about whether it supports your career growth will be the theme of the Aquarius Full Moon. Be mindful of shake ups in your partnerships. You could either meet the partner in crime you’ve been waiting for or realize that your chosen partner isn’t as compelling as you want them to be. Let the chips fall and shift course accordingly.
Scorpio AirBrush Filter for August:
Apply the Freeze filter pack to your photos for the ultimate power portraits. FZ-1 gives a confident glow to your images that’s perfect for your next LinkedIn profile picture. Try FZ-2 for stark, bold accents that show depth. Finally, FZ-3 applies a muted effect that fits your mysterious energy, Scorpio.
Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21)
The sector of your chart being illuminated during Leo season is all about adventure and expansion of the spirit; themes you adore, dear Sagittarius. Do whatever you need to do to stoke your adventure spirit, whether that be going on a weekend getaway to the mountains, reading a breathless adventure tale or having a metaphysical conversation with your bestie. It’s time to dream and let your imagination run wild.
Conversations that bring your ideas down to a more practical, day-to-day level will be the theme of the Aquarius Full Moon for you. You dare to dream, there’s no doubt about that, but do you dare to have your bold beliefs questioned by others? Stay curious to what others might have to say about your visions for the world. Be mindful of shifts in your day-to-day routine and health regimen. It might be time for a change to your current approach. This might include trying a new fitness routine or dietary regimen. Also investing in a new approach to your work schedule. You’re a master at change and do not fear the unknown, so this will be exciting for you.
Sagittarius AirBrush Filter for August:
Fire up your adventure spirit with the Portland filter pack. For a moodier dark blue green undertone try PDX-1 or PDX-3 for a slightly greener glow. Or, give your photos a mystical ocean green sheen with PDX-4.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
There’s a focus on your legally-binding commitments this Leo season, Capricorn, especially of the financial stripe. Conversations about your investments, your financial obligations and debts, as well as your deep feelings about the hidden parts of your life, may come up. It’s nothing to be nervous about, just let yourself feel what you need to feel. Your finances will be the focus of the Aquarius Full Moon and coming to terms with the areas of your approach to money that do or do not give you a sense of emotional stability. There could be some changes to your approach to creativity and play. Also, romance. This is an experimental month for you Capricorn, and one that will definitely push you out of your comfort zone. Remember, it’s OK to take risks when it comes to money and romance. This is your month to be more irresponsible than you usually are.
Capricorn AirBrush Filter for August:
Use the Shadows filter to dive deep this month Capricorn and help you remember that there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel. This 3-pack filter set includes Golden for a subtle swath of light; Sunlit for that patchy natural lighting that reminds you to look on the bright side and Mysterious, a perfect spotlight filter that highlights your angles in all the right ways.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Your relationships will be on display this month Aquarius. Specifically, if you are partnered, you may feel closer to your significant other than ever before. The Aquarius Full Moon will either highlight this closeness or rock its foundation to help you strengthen your relationship. Either way, any drama that comes up on the Full Moon relating to your relationship is meant to help you grow. If you are not partnered, you may likely enter into a relationship this month, particularly around the time of the Full Moon when any loneliness might feel overwhelming. You might also move or change your home life in some way this month. Spontaneous changes in the relationship dynamics at play in your family may also come about. As long as it supports your future-oriented, objective approach, it shouldn’t be too much of a problem for a trailblazer like you.
Aquarius AirBrush Filter for August:
Highlight the love in your life during Leo season, Aquarius, with the Jaipur filter pack. For your next photo with your partner in crime, we recommend JAI-1 for a cool luminous glow. For a slightly warmer tinge, try JAI-2 or JAI-5.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Leo season is the time to dig your heels in and ground down, Pisces! The Sun will be in your 6th house of work life, routine and health which means it’s a great time to implement a routine in your work or personal life. There will be a focus on implementing structure in your daily routine, a theme you could likely use some support with given the dreamy, free-spirited fish that you are. Don’t let yourself fall into the depths of despair on the Aquarius Full Moon which should be quite emotional and spiritually consuming for you. Seek out constructive, down-to-earth exercises that ground you in the face of overwhelming emotion. This might include going for a nature walk, doing a yoga flow or making a list of things in your life you are thankful for.
Your ideas might undergo some shifts this month, and specifically the way you communicate them to those around you. Try to talk it out rather than get stuck in your head. It’s good to dream but it’s also good to ground down and connect in real time with those around you.
Pisces AirBrush Filter for August:
It’s time to ground Pisces and there’s no better filter set to reflect this then the Everyday pack. Find calm with these earthy tones, including Nordic for a blue, matte finish, Peacock for a muted, green undertone and Elegant for a bright evergreen tinge.
