Lap up the light of the season’s full moons or dream in the deep night of its new moons with Miraval Resorts’ Celestial Summer at all three of our destinations. You can harness the magic of Miraval’s balmy nights and gaze at the Berkshires’ blanket of stars, dream in the dusking desert sky, or reflect under Hill Country constellations.
On August 11, a Full Moon in Aquarius brings a lot of adjustments to our playful Leo new moon vibe. It’s a good time to think about what is safe and sane without letting go of your sense of whimsy and adventure. On the 27th, a New Moon in Virgo brings new beginnings, renewed commitment, personal goals, and positive energy.
Here are a few ways to best take advantage of Miraval’s annual Celestial Summer celebration.

You can celebrate the stars shimmering brightly in the darkened sky of the mid-month New Moon, a time of purifying energy and renewal. It’s a great time to observe, absorb, and pause before the waxing moon’s journey culminates in the spark that ignites each month’s Full Moon, a time of action, manifestation, and illumination.
Miraval Austin Astrologer Lynn Carroll-Rivera offers tips and suggestions to match your elemental sign.
Lynn reminds us that our Celestial Summer activities are excellent for any elemental combination, and everyone can benefit from all of these classes. You will be drawn to certain ones based on your own perception, comfort zone, and even your alignment with the stars.
