This is the second Full Moon in Aquarius in a row, so I like to call it an Astrological Blue Moon. With the Sun and the Moon both at 29 degrees of Leo/Aquarius this can indicate a big turning point.
In the natal chart, if a person has planets at the last degree of a sign that means we are working hard this lifetime on completing somethings related to the planet and the sign that are at the final degree.
Look through your chart to see if you have any planets at 29 degrees. What is the planet and its purpose and then what sign is it in? Also look at the house placement for additional information.
When we have this happening in the sky as it does from time to time, and it is with this Full Moon, it would represent a collective reckoning. So let’s look at the collective Leo Sun and Aquarius Moon.
Both signs are fixed and yang, this means outgoing and direct, the Leo Sun is a fire sign and that means we feel the need to be creative, express the ego drive and be dramatic. Seeking attention in our own Leo section of our chart. The Full Moon in Aquarius is fixed air, the question here is in what category do we have our minds totally made up?
I can easily see this opposition in the world today as nations are falling back into their old ways of thinking and any humanitarian progress that was made is now being lost. At least that is what is being shown on the surface.
People are becoming even more divided then ever. A lot of this comes from ego and not wanting to let the past go. This is how an opposition of these two signs Leo and Aquarius can and currently are playing out.
When it comes to the opposition aspect, which a Full Moon is we are being asked to be aware of something, but awareness is not always the first thing we see. We are being asked to see the other perspective, the other side of a situation or relationship.
The big theme globally or even locally is the tug of war between (Leo) the ego drive and (Aquarius) humanitarian needs.
Now with Uranus turning retrograde the day before this Full Moon it is important to mention it as well. Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius, so he is playing a roll in this Full Moon too. However to predict what Uranus will do is a Fool’s mission because Uranus is here to move us out of our comfort zone, to make sure we do not stay stuck in endless loops. Change is always occurring whether we embrace it or not.
This second Aquarius Full Moon at the very end of the sign is telling us to pay attention to that part of our chart and be open and ready for change to come.
Also keep in mind as tough as some transits can be, the Universe never gives us what we don’t need for our highest good. (I know some heavy thinking when a person is in a bad place, I have been there too, but always in hindsight it has been for the best, even when I would have preferred it not happen). On the other side of that remember the Universe also gives us easy transits that are blessings. With the retrograde of Uranus we also have inner work to do so whatever is coming up there personally do yourself a favor and work on it.
So in a world gone mad, I would love it if you would come back to now and your chart. Take a look at where this Full Moon resides, which house is it in in your chart? Does it connect to other planets? If you need help with that you are welcome to book a session. If you want to know where this Full Moon is in your chart email me your birth information.
In the video forecast I will go over all of this and the house placements, so you have a little bit more information to navigate your life.
Another way we can tell what the theme of this Full Moon is all about is to track the Lunar Gestation Phase it belongs to.
The New Moon that started this phase was on Feb 23, 2020, the first quarter Moon was November 21, 2020. Look to those dates and investigate because the Full Moon on August 22nd is related to those other dates and now we should be able to see the reward for what we have been doing.
What did you start in February 2020? Or what was begun that you did not know about but do now. In November 2020 you would have had some kind of struggle or effort that needed to happen related to the February date.
Here is my example. My father passed away a few days before the February 2020 New Moon. What begun then? Being the executor I had to take care of all the things that have to happen when a family member dies. Wow was that a lot of work however, the main issue was the house mortgage. Only in my father’s name, Mom’s name is on the deed. We managed to keep paying the mortgage through the pandemic, but the bank finally caught up with their paperwork November 2020 and we had to refinance the home in my mother’s name. So much to do, but effort worthwhile. That is true nature of a first quarter Moon. Effort and hard work to get what you want done.
Now we are current again, we are here the Full Moon in Aquarius August 22, 2021. What are you being made aware of? What has come to head, it is a time of total awareness in your life.
Be well my friends, stay flexible, allow things to flow whether you like it not. Being too ridged in times like these will break us.
