When the entire face of the moon is visible from Earth, opposite the Sun, unobstructed from Earth's shadow, and 180 degrees from its New Moon phase, it is considered a Full Moon

What sets a Full Moon apart is its shape and energy, it still rises in the east and reflects the Sun’s light. It appears to be a full circle because the Moon’s disk is almost entirely illuminated by the Sun’s light.

A Full Moon occurs approximately every 29 days, meaning that once a month we see a Full Moon in our skies. When we see more than one, it is called a rare Blue Moon

Astrologically speaking, the Full Moon lasts less than three days. when you see a specific date in an astrology calendar, this is the date when Astrologers believe that this Moon phase is when energy peaks. Many people use the energies of the Full Moon for growth, manifesting, rituals, and divination.

In Astrology, the Moon moves through different signs meaning that each month the Full Moon will be in a different astrological sign
