There’s a bit of a habit in the GTG office whereby whenever there’s a bit of a turbulent time - plans changing at the last minute, computers breaking, a general feeling of everything being up in the air - we look up what’s happening with the moon and stars. Call us crazy, but nine times out of ten there’s usually a full moon lurking around the corner, leading us to put all the chaos down to astrology and happily get back to our keyboards safe in the knowledge that it’s out of our hands.

Whether you’re a believer or not, the full moon is something that has fascinated people for centuries, as GTG’s go-to astrologer Jessica Adams  tells me. But how can it affect our everyday lives?

“The Full Moon in astrology is about that time of reckoning, when the Sun is opposite the Moon. It typically brings mixed feelings or opposite points of view, either inside you – or in the outside world – and if it triggers your birth chart, or even the birth chart of a whole nation (countries have horoscopes too) then it’s big.”

So if you’ve been feeling out of sorts this week, don’t fret - take the team’s lead and blame it on the moon, which will be full this Sunday 26th August. But what does it mean for you and your sign? In an extract from her book, Jessica explains it all…


If the Full Moon is in your sign (if you are a Pisces, for example, the Full Moon on 26th August falls in your zodiac sign) then avoid cosmetic surgery, laser eye surgery, haircuts or colouring, new photographs, film shoots, profile launches and all ‘me’ plans on the Full Moon. Why? It’s in your house of image.

Are you a Virgo? Near 26th August it will be D-Day for the relationship you have with your former, current or potential partner. Why? The Full Moon is in your house of partnerships, from all stages of your life.

Your zodiac sign and the full moon in Pisces (August 26th)

Where will you experience D-Day and your ‘now or never’ moment? Allow more time and space for yourself on the day itself, and just before and after.

A Full Moon is a time of reckoning and it can make some people very emotional. Along with the Full Moon in Pisces we also have Neptune in Pisces, a symbol of confusion. People feel all at sea, or a little lost, with Neptune in Pisces anyway. The last thing they need is a Full Moon as well!

That’s why you need to cut yourself and others lots of slack on Full Moon day, August 26th, but also – perhaps – make up your mind another time. Unless you absolutely have to move forward on that day and there is no choice you may prefer an easier time!
