The Full Moon in Aquarius
The Full Moon in Aquarius always stands across the sky from the Sun in Leo.
This Full Moon in Aquarius follows the double New Moons we had in Cancer symbolizing a time of personal growth and hope for a better future.
Full Moons act as a spotlight of attention on how we are growing and what we are emphasizing and moving towards in our lives. So, it’s a good time to reflect on how far you’ve come in accomplishing goals you are working toward.
As we know, people can tend to act a bit crazy with Full Moons as well. Full Moons also tend to make things more obvious and come out in the open. Symbolically it’s like a peak energy of emotion and realization. Since Aquarius has it’s quirky, strange and unconventional side we could see some bizarre perspectives, and over the top emotional behavior as we reach close to this Full Moon.
Aquarius also corresponds to collective consciousness, and the information that circulates quickly around the world online and in the news influencing what we think and believe about reality, each other and the world.
As mentioned Full Moons can be highly emotional times for a lot of people and people can act like lunatics based on what is on their mind. With social Air Signs like Aquarius, gossip is in the air so it is important to be attentive to how opinions and information that comes your way is affecting your thoughts, emotions and therefore your reactions. We can expect information and big news to alter the collective consciousness in dramatic ways with this Full Moon.
What we think about and focus on tends to manifest into reality when we put more thought and energy in a certain direction. So, this is an important time to get clear about what type of future you want to become reality and therefore the type of information you allow to become a part of your vision of reality.
Aquarius is generally hopeful and optimistic so tapping into that mindset whenever possible to improve your chances of manifesting positive results and outcomes is recommended now.
Aquarius wants to influence the future positively by contributing and bestowing knowledge and wisdom to the collective. However, we also have to consider that we have Saturn the ancient ruler of Aquarius currently Retrograde in Capricorn indicating that those in high positions of influence on society have an interest in imposing restrictions and limitations on the world and the collective mindset. As we seek a more positive future, we also need to acknowledge that there are challenges we need to face and overcome.
By facing what we don’t want, we can awaken to what we really do want.
You may remember that when Saturn entered Aquarius back in March that’s when social distancing started. Since Aquarius is a highly social sign that loves freedom, yet we are in a period where masks are being mandated indicating an increasingly anti-social atmosphere, we could see some strong expressions of rebellion against ongoing restrictions as we reach closer to this Full Moon as well.
Aquarius indicates the collective consciousness but Aquarius also likes to march to the beat of their own drum and think for themselves, so conforming to external demands that are restrictive can feel especially uncomfortable nearer to this Full Moon.
The modern ruler of Aquarius is Uranus signifying a love of freedom and exploration of the universe and concepts about the future.
As we reach closer to this Full Moon in Aquarius we could hear news about scientists making advancements and discoveries. Astronomers, astrologers and novice stargazers are likely to feel in their element now spending time pondering the depths of space and time.
Social and tech companies could be in the spotlight as well in how they are handling and restricting freedom of thought and expression and influencing collective consciousness.
This Full Moon in Aquarius will be followed by the New Moon in Leo a couple of week’s later, so we are now in a broader period where we are discovering ourselves through personal growth and self expression.
In your personal life, nurturing your body with good food and self care, and gaining self confidence to express your creative interests are recommended as we enter August.
For casual relaxation, this is a great time to read sci-fi books or watch sci-fi movies to glimpse interesting possibilities for the future and to stimulate your creative ideas. It’s also a great time to listen to future sounds of synthwave electronic music.
If you are the inventive, creative type you could find this Full Moon is the right time for you to share your inspiration and creative ideas with friends and people in your social sphere, particularly online and through the use of technology to communicate. If you have talents you’ve been developing the Full Moon can be a great time to showcase what you’ve got.
This is an excellent time to find your mode of expression that is truly unique to you. What do you hope for in your life? Find that hope and focus on it as part of your path to individualization now.
Uranus is currently in Taurus indicating attention on money, income and financial security is also an important focus with this Full Moon in Aquarius.
Since this Full Moon in Aquarius is in square to Uranus in Taurus now, we could see a spotlight shining on financial issues and economic considerations that could affect our future.
With all that is going on in Capricorn with Saturn, Pluto and Jupiter now, we could also see big revelations about charitable organizations and foundations that may have been doing funny business with their finances in the guise of philanthropy, especially in connection to people in high positions of influence in our society. It’s an important time to follow the money to see the truth of what’s really going on.
If you are working from home now, it would be wise to brush up on your tech knowledge and skills so you can utilize online tools to develop your business opportunities.
Finally, this Full Moon in Aquarius is also in positive sextile to Chiron Retrograde in Aries and the Sun in Leo is also in positive trine to Chiron in Aries, so there is indications here of positive opportunities for people to heal their identities during this period, to become more awakened and enlightened individuals.
Though there is a lot going on in the world and astrologically, each phase of growth and development gives us a chance to look at the world and how we are part of creating the future and influencing collective change. This Full Moon in Aquarius indicates we will become more conscious and aware of how the world operates and the future we are moving towards. From there we will be more informed so we can make better choices about the path forward we are creating.
