Full Moon in Aquarius

Full Moon in Aquarius

In this lunar cycle, our Full Moon is on August 1 at 2:32 pm EDT.

With a Full Moon, the Moon and Sun are opposite each other in the sky, creating tension for us to work with. This tension, this fullness, brings things to light.

With a Full Moon in Aquarius, we have the Moon in Aquarius and the Sun in Leo, helping us find the balance between the group (Aquarius) and ourselves (Leo). As Full Moons illuminate, we may find that groups or places we once identified no longer align with our values, beliefs, or simply the road we're on, and we need to break free and do things in a new way, a way that aligns with our truth.

Aquarius is rational and logical, thinking outside of the box and innovating for the common good. Aquarius understands that rising tides lift all boats. Aquarius lives by the creed that together we rise, together we fall.

Leo, however, can get caught up in the self. Leo seeks out praise and adoration, while Aquarius just wants to know how to make things better, more streamlined. This dichotomy that we all hold is brought to the surface with this Full Moon, ready for you to examine and do with it what you will.

With this Full Moon, there is a T-square with Jupiter, suggesting that our emotions will definitely be showing us where changes need to be made and where we might need to step away from the group and do things on our own. There’s nothing wrong with outgrowing a person, group, or situation. There is something wrong with dimming your light so you can fit in somewhere that isn’t designed to hold your shine.

Where are you holding yourself back, dimming your sparkle and wrapping your soul up in order to hide it?
