Full moon in Aquarius falls on August 3, 2020.  Aquarius is a fixed air sign ruled by Saturn (in traditional astrology) and Uranus (in modern astrology).  Some people assume it is a water sign because its symbol is  the Water Bearer, but it is “all Air!”  I often think of it as a cloud.  When Aquarius encounters (feelings aka water), it releases them as rain.

Full moons are always illuminating things, helping us to see the bigger picture and truth.  This full moon in Aquarius is about us expanding our way of thinking.  Aquarius represents, the rebels, the misfits, the round pegs…the ones who see things differently.  The eccentric who refuses to follow blindly.

This is a time for us to take a second look at things we felt unsure or unclear about.

This full moon is also square Uranus.  What this means is that there will be unexpected changes and events.  We will need adaptability to navigate.  Now would not be a good time to take risks or make impulsive decisions.  This The alignment may trigger things in our lives that can make us feel shaky and unsteady.  It may be hard to know what to trust and which direction to choose.  When this happens to us, it gives us the opportunity to see what is weak and what is strong.  Whatever can withstand this unsteady period remains, whatever was weak will fall away.  This energy is meant to help us remove and let go of things no longer meant for us or that no longer serve our greater good.  This shake-up from this full moon will help us to gently let go of these things and to remind us that we need not hold on in fear.

Who or what are you holding onto out of fear?  What thoughts or beliefs?  This full moon will help clear them away.  It will ask you to shake up your thoughts and ideas so you can see what needs to remain.  If we surrender and “go with the flow,” we allow the universe to show us the way forward in our best and highest good with ease and grace.
