Every 28 days, the full moon makes its grand entrance in the night sky, revealing the entirety of its celestial beauty. As it showers the universe with its glowing, ethereal light, you can literally *feel* its power surging through your spirit. And if you’re one of the zodiac signs most affected by the full moon, there’s a strong chance the experience will leave you changed in some way!

A full moon always takes place while the moon—ruler of your internal self—is forming an opposition with the sun—ruler of your external self—creating inner turmoil and forcing you to take action. It’s not unusual for deep-seated emotions to rise to the surface like a volcanic explosion, nor it is uncommon for major epiphanies to take place during this time. Because the full moon is also the most climactic phase of the lunar cycle, it’s often a time that evokes major changes and revelatory moments. Like it or not, a full moon will always set you free!
