And so it is, the second of two Full Moons in Aquarius completes the last day of Leo Season on Sunday August 22nd 2021.
Let’s think back to what emerged 28.5 days earlier to the first Full Moon in Aquarius on July 23rd. I’m sure I speak for many when I say the first Full Moon in the sign of the Waterbearer began a month of even more unexpected turns in our life stories. Aquarius energy can’t help but uproot, disrupt, and course-correct our thinking, emotions, and behaviors towards directions that are life-sustaining. I suspect the last few weeks you’ve been confronted with patterns, habits, and automatic responses that keep you clinging to what you’re intended to be released from. Like its ruling planet Uranus, Aquarius energy strikes a lightning bolt and can quickly liberate us from what want to be healed.
I think it’s important to acknowledge that we can have a perverse comfort level with our familiar habits in that we know them. We don’t know what is waiting for us on the other side of personal change. Aquarius energy understands our fears but won’t cater to them. So if you need this Full Moon to properly grieve, and in a sense mourn the life you once knew, let Sunday be a time we dispel the myth that Aquarius is emotionally detached. Give yourself space, time, and resilience on Sunday to mourn the plans, the goals, relationships, and more that won’t be coming with you through this final Full Moon. We stand with you shoulder to shoulder in your grieving and we are also pointing the way to the dawn which holds your freedom, life-force, self-trust, and connection with the greater community.
On the other side of this Full Moon, we won’t recognize where we’re going. And that’s exactly what we prayed and intended for. So let us stay firm on our values and clear our convictions while we walk from the known to the unknown. With Uranus now retrograde in Taurus and squaring Saturn in Aquarius as this year’s defining transit, we are invited to understand how our clarity of values and our spiritual convictions motivate us to preserve what needs to be, and change what is begging to be. The paradox between stability and change is not a problem that needs to be solved; it is a power that has to be leveraged carefully. Mercury in Virgo opposing Neptune in Pisces gives us insight into which low-level habits need to be confronted and broken. While highlighting the power of small behavior choices toward better habits, and the habit-stacking that tends to happen effortlessly when we take the first steps towards impeccability.
Little steps and small choices are the Virgoan medicine that helps us experience the resilience and clarity we need to walk through the big Aquarius changes waiting for each and every one of us!
Friendship, Activism, Convictions & Shared Humanity
Call your girls, Aries! Sunday’s Full Moon in Aquarius wants you to frame friendship differently. Reach out to the ones you miss. Send love to the ones who you aren’t staying. Review your values, goals, and vision so you can see which of your friends are supportive of you who you’re becoming. Ensure that reciprocity, curiosity, and deep respect are the new bottom lines.
Career, Purpose, Integrity & Responsibility
It’s about connection; not just competence Taurus! The Full Moon in Aquarius wants to give you the career changes you’re dreaming of. Check in with your people and how they’re resources hold the key to where you want to go. Don’t be afraid to reach out and ask for help in pushing your goals forward. Others want to help you the way you have helped them.
Wisdom, Publishing, Vision & Higher Education
It’s all about data-application now, Gemini! The Full Moon in Aquarius wants you to identify the key learnings of the last month and apply them diligently for integrity. You’re holding a vision of new ideas, strategies, and approaches that want to be operationalized quickly for success. Move slowly to avoid making reflexive choices and bravely apply your learnings for success!
Intimacy, Eros, Sexuality & Transformation
Widen the village, Cancer! The Full Moon in Aquarius helps you expand your social landscape so you can find trust, intimacy, and support in wonderful ways. It might even help you with an erotic longing, sexual desire, and/or experience an emotion that wants to be understood. Be open to new possibilities of relating, experiment with what works, and throw away the rest.
Romance, Love, Partnerships & Trust
Opposites do attract, Leo! The Full Moon in Aquarius helps you navigate the knot of contradiction that is modern relationships. Your proclivities will always clash with your partners’ vulnerabilities and vice versa. So you want to situate the kind of mutuality you’ll need to maximize the upsides and minimize the downsides of this relationship with relationships.
Humility, Health, Wellness & Routine
It’s incredible how habits construct identity, Virgo. So what are yours? The Full Moon in Aquarius highlights the importance of the habits, routines, and behavior choices you commit to that directly influence your success and where you can complicate it. Talk to friends about how they spend their morning routine and gather helpful inspiration that you can take with you.
Courage, Worthiness, Charisma & Lovability
Speak the story in your heart, Libra! The Full Moon in Aquarius highlights a courageous truth that needs to be shared. It’ll be scary and yes you’ll experience the emotion of risk, uncertainty, and emotional exposure. Just know that no act of courage goes unrewarded. If you share your heart with others and the Universe too, you will be met with miraculous rewards.
Vulnerability, Home, Family & Emotionality
“Home” is a feeling isn’t it, Scorpio? The Full Moon in Aquarius helps you frame your inner emotional world as “home” while helping you self-accept your emotional depth so you can find inner peace. In doing so, you'll magnetize all the right situations, circumstances, relationships, and even events that help you feel the feeling of home and belonging-with others meaningfully.
Curiosity, Observation, Language & Active Listening
Nonviolent communication teaches that words are windows or walls, Sag. The Full Moon in Aquarius helps you see the power of your communication strategies to let others see the deepest version of you. Or lock them out of getting to know the realest version of you. Share your thoughts, emotions, and vision with others so that language is a bridge of connection.
Finances, Security, Clarity of Values & Pleasure
Listen to your body, Cap! The Full Moon in Aquarius highlights the value of groundedness, embodiment, sensuality, and pleasure. You’ll want to cross reference the somatics of your body to the emotions you’re feeling for added education. There’s great wisdom in your body that wants to be explored. So strive to find the safety and somatic wisdom you’ll earn.
Identity, Desire, Charisma & Authenticity
Hit the reset button, Aquarius! This Full Moon is your second opportunity to review, release, and renew. You’re being tasked with taking 100% responsibility of the low-level things in your life so you have the foundation to transform it. We cannot alchemize what we aren’t taking ownership of. Then the Full Moon completes a chapter while opening a blank page for you.
Completion, Surrender, Healing & Spiritual Support
Have a little faith, Pisces! The Full Moon in Aquarius wants your faith based vision for the moments ahead. You’ll be asked to consider how deepening your spiritual practice can change your perception. While having faith in the Universe’s ability to self-organize and self-correct itself in all the ways to provide you with the life you’re dreaming of. “Blessed are those who have Faith who cannot see”!
