The phases of the moon are one of the most fascinating astronomical phenomena that we can observe with the naked eye. It’s such a deep source for thought and a beautiful tool for the interpretation of Astrology.
Among the 8 phases – New, Waxing Crescent, First Quarter Half, Waxing Gibbous, Full, Waning Gibbous, Last Quarter Half, and Waning Crescent – the New and Full Moons capture most of the attention and for good reason.
A FULL MOONS ENERGY
The Full Moon is the time to reap what you have sown during the New Moon. It’s a time to sit in gratitude for all of your manifested desires – and all of the beautiful manifestations to come. Sometimes things can show up differently in your life than you originally planned, as your intuition, feelings and connection with something greater than yourself can often manifest a life far beyond your mind – and the Full Moon is a beautiful time to acknowledge, be grateful for and surrender to this connection and power of the Universe.
The Full Moon always has it’s opposing Sun – in the opposing Zodiac sign. This can create tension in opposing energy, but can also create a heightened vision of possibility! It takes twenty-nine and a half days from one Full Moon to the next and spends approx. two and a half days in a sign. The day before, the day of and the day after are the peak times of the Full Moon energy – so if you don’t get to your Full Moon ritual the day of – don’t worry! As the energy reaches it’s fullest potential it then moves into the waning stage, fading and preparing for a whole new cycle all over again.
Each month the Full Moon has a name based on certain occurrences during that time of year. This Aquarius Full Moon is named the Sturgeon Moon – which comes from the time of the year when large numbers of fish populate the lakes of the Northern Hemisphere, interesting stuff hey! It has also been called the Green Corn Moon, Barley Moon, Fruit Moon and the Grain Moon.
FULL MOON IN AQUARIUS: HUMANITY + YOUR HEARTS GOALS
This beautiful Full Moon in Aquarius will occur on the 15th August at 8.29 EST – and will move into Pisces the next day!
The Aquarius energy is all about community, revolution and idealism, and will pass this energy to the Pisces energy of spirituality, dreams, and the oneness of humankind. It’s as if the Aquarius energy is to help Pisces by putting our local needs into the equality of humanity, working towards the betterment of the ideal society. This lunation calls attention to the causes you care about and the communities you are involved in (or want to be involved in).
This Full Moon at 22° Aquarius sits exactly opposite the Sun at 22° Leo, and this will trigger some true soul searching, especially in relation to the last 2 years – and with this will come triggers that are coming up to be healed. But that’s not even all of it; the Moon isn’t only opposing the Sun in Leo, but also Venus, Mars and Juno which is bringing a lot of mixed and conflicting energies, so here the Universe is asking us to come together even with our differences, and even celebrate these differences.
JUPITER GOES DIRECT!
This is exciting news! Jupiter went direct on 11 August in Sagittarius after being in retrograde since April 2019 – this retrograde has caused some lack of motivation, ignorance and honestly, possibly some laziness. But that is no longer, we’re back in forward motion for the rest of the year and with this comes big energy and opportunity for expansion!
As Jupiter hangs around at 14°30’, this sends continuous energy to whatever aspect Jupiter is making to your chart for this entire month, amplifying and expanding certain parts of your energy and life -which is much longer than Jupiter’s usual aspects of 1-2 weeks! So, make sure you are making the most of it; to find out what’s happening with Jupiter in your chart and learn how to take advantage of it – we got you!
Generally speaking, Jupiter wants happiness and Jupiter wants expansion, so this is am exciting time.
Uranus went retrograde around the same time and this can create big changes to energy, which you can read about here!
