FULL MOON. The next Full Moon will occur on Tuesday, August 1, 2023, under the sign of Aquarius. If the full moon has a more or less strong effect depending on the astrological sign, it also has an effect for everyone on mood, body, sleep, and even on plants.

[Updated July 25, 2023 6:47 PM] Many people regularly experience the effects of the full moon. Mood, body, sleep... The consequences are many and should once again be felt on Tuesday, August 1, 2023, on the occasion of the first full moon of August (because there will be exceptionally well two this month- this !)

Regarding its observation, know that this full moon will have the distinction of being a Super Moon. An astronomical phenomenon that scientists call "perigee-syzygia", and which only takes place when the full moon is at the point of its orbit closest to Earth, less than 360,000 kilometers away.

On Tuesday, August 1, 2023 at 8:31:40 p.m. precisely, the next full moon will occur. The schedule is established by the Institute of Celestial Mechanics and Ephemeris Calculation (IMCCE).
