We haven’t had a regular-ass full moon since February! They’ve all been supermoons or lunar eclipses. The August full moon is called the Sturgeon Moon because it coincides with abundant fish catches. It is also called the Green Corn Moon or Grain Moon. The moon will rise at sunset, peak at midnight and set at sunrise all over the world. This full moon will square Uranus in Taurus which only means one thing: EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED.
Sun and moon oppose one another in Leo and Aquarius: right brain vs left brain. Fixed oppositions summon proud, forceful reactions. This energy is also inherently empowering and liberating. Aquarius weaves us upon a great cosmic loom. Threaded and pressed, Leo’s individual colors fade blissfully into the rainbow.
The Leo sun represents childhood and self-expression. The full moon in Aquarius comes in like a dash of radical, inquisitive lightning. Aquarius emanates from the analytical frontal cortex; Leo operates from the heart. At this full moon, a dose of Aquarian rationale suffuses Leo’s impulsive, creative heart. On this full moon last year, I submitted my grad school application, and now I have a Master’s degree in alternative education (ruled by Aquarius)!
Let’s destroy old psychological boundaries and make space for healthier paradigms to emerge. Aquarius is synonymous with change and movement. He is the emancipator, the martyr, the uprising. Aquarius evaporates psychological binds, bonds, and tethers with a wink of his magic turquoise eyes. Don’t be afraid to make noise, be loud, turn up the volume. Aquarius is a non-conformist and spiritual liberator. Be daring.
Both Leo and Aquarius always need to be right. Leo believes firmly in himself: his generosity, his intentions, his narrative. The water bearer, on the other hand, lurches from the lectern, convinced his brilliance will revolutionize the world. Aquarius can be merciless when his intellect is questioned, piercing shades of anger disguised as objectivity.
Psychic and physical energy increase significantly at every full moon. This is felt not just the day of, but for days before and after. Emotions and intuition will be heightened. Non-reaction is the root of all journeys. Find a way to communicate without anger.
If this Aquarian wind has got you feeling uprooted, come back to earth by meditating on the root chakra. If Leo’s warmth hasn’t quite permeated your heart yet, meditate on the heart chakra. And if you’re feeling super groovy and wanna rock this at the next level, travel up to the third eye. Change it up with Aquarius Yoga. To find your personal moon sign, click here.
