August 11: Full Moon in Aquarius

This Full Moon will occur when the Moon in Aquarius comes to oppose the Sun in Leo.  This axis highlights our need for approval versus our need to be independent.  It also emphasizes the approaching Saturn-Uranus square, as they all are between 18-22 degrees of fixed signs. This aspect represents the clash between the status quo and the urge for new paths – any issues with this may be linked to childish behaviors or entitlement associated with the July 28th New Moon.

The Saturn-Uranus square will feel disruptive, but a harmonious aspect from Chiron to the full moon is quite helpful. If you realize that you have been compromising your identity in an attempt to get along with others, it’s time to make a change. Some degree of compromise is important in maintaining healthy relationships, but we shouldn’t become a different person to make someone else happy. Chiron (The Wounded Healer) will assist in the mending process and help to make the transition go more smoothly.

Planets in Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius)The Full Moon is when we reach a climax from our efforts. This is your opportunity to complete the process of change for freedom.  Saturn and Uranus will still be in square aspect, but after August 24, they will both be retrograde. The time of action will then shift into a time of acclimation and reflection.  … and you get a much deserved break from your hard work!  Be proud of how far you’ve come.

Planets in Aries, Sagittarius: You will have an easier time. If you’ve been actively trying to manifest creative projects since the New Moon, this is when your new enterprise will be tested.  Have you been patient and realistic? If the answer is yes, you should see a successful turning point here. Show off your completed work or share your new vision with others.  Sometimes, a Full Moon represents the completion of plans or just the first step for a long-term objective.  With Chiron’s position in the sky, you’ll receive an added bonus if your project involves healing.
