August 2023 Astrology Predictions: Super Moons
by Curtis Burns,

Vedic and Western Astrology Predictions for August 2023

This month, August 2023, has two confirmed super moons, that is, full moons that occur close to the Earth (perigee).  As a result the Moon looks slightly larger in the sky, seemingly a more powerful full moon.

I find no confirmation elsewhere, but between those two full moons will be a new moon that will be placed at the farthest from the Earth, called apogee, or a “micro moon”.  Naturally this is so because in the approximately 28 day lunar cycle with one extreme phase (full moon) at the closest node, then the other phase (new moon) will be at the farthest node.

The Moon does not make a perfect circle as it orbits the Earth, rather it is elliptical, one end close the other far.

The last ten days of August 2023 then will have a flurry of activity with Mercury and Uranus turning retrograde, and then Saturn at opposition making aspect to Pluto.

You will have to get up before sunrise and be able to look low in the east to see this.  All of the planets of the solar system (including the Moon) will be rising before the Sun and will be relatively close together.  In astrological terms they will be all in the same quadrant of a horoscope.
