Aristotle once said, “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts,” and this phrase happens to be incredibly fitting for your full moon horoscopes this August. Every single person has a unique purpose in life, and because this full moon takes place in innovative and authentic Aquarius, it’s time to acknowledge that being yourself is your superpower. However, because there will be *six* planets —sun, moon, Venus, Mars, Saturn, Uranus—moving through fixed signs at the time of the full moon, there could be some strong resistance to change!
In astrology, it’s the fixed signs—Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius—who are are more likely to feel restricted, challenged and/or stuck between a rock and a hard place. While they’re celebrated for their ride-or-die level of dedication, their stubborn and unchanging personalities can also present them with challenges. And because this full moon is radiating the energy of air sign Aquarius—a zodiac sign that can be quite rigid when it comes to their attitudes and belief systems—this full moon could leave you feeling more restricted than usual. Luckily, Aquarius is also the visionary of the zodiac, which means they’re always working toward a better future. Eccentric, offbeat and ingenious, this fixed air sign is a catalyst for breakthroughs!
Similar to its modern planetary ruler, Uranus—aka the “Great Awakener”—the Aquarian ability to tap into the higher mind and look towards a brighter tomorrow is one of the many attributes that make this air sign so ahead of its time. Hint: which astrological house belongs to Aquarius in your birth chart? This is where you’re more likely to think outside the box and rebel against the status quo! It’s the area of life where you’re destined to reach the masses, and perhaps even start a revolution all on your own. There is an innate knowingness stemming from this fixed air sign and the same goes for your brilliant ideas. Don’t be afraid to experiment and harness the power of your own uniqueness.
The upcoming full moon takes place at 19 degrees Aquarius on August 11 at exactly 9:36 p.m. ET. During the full moon phase, the moon sits in direct opposition to the sun, which is evokes a call for balance. And in the case of Leo (which symbolizes personal self-expression) vs. Aquarius (which represents teamwork and group endeavors), you might find yourself choosing between becoming your own agent or joining forces with other like-minded individuals. It all depends on what aligns with your current reality, which is where the challenging fixed energies come in to wreak havoc! After all, the only thing the full moon is doing is illuminating a deeper truth, but in the end, it’s up to you what you decide to do with this information. You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make them drink.
The full moon in Aquarius will take place on August 11 at 9:35 p.m. ET.
In addition to being a wake-up call to your individual freedom, this lunation has “something’s gotta give” written all over it. Remember, the sun’s journey through Leo is all about celebrating the person you are with confidence and courage, but with the full moon conjunction Saturn in Aquarius, we are also being reminded of the discipline and structure that is needed along the way. Uranus, Aquarius’ celestial ruler, will also be activating a T-Square between the sun and moon, highlighting the instability that could potentially stem from making these long-awaited shifts in our lives, but don’t let this discourage you. Sounds like a cliche, but Rome wasn’t built in a day. Besides, in typical Aquarian fashion, it’s important to remember that every worthy experiment is bound to trigger some sort of disruption. So, if you’re too afraid to make a ruckus, make sure this inhibition isn’t costing you a dream. It’s time to take the lead.
It’s time to take your power back and step into your new reality! Sometimes we have to be soft in order to be strong, and this oxymoron very much speaks to the astrological axis of Cancer and Capricorn. Another way to look at it is, Capricorn wants you to cultivate your sense of authority in order to become more in touch with your divine mission, and Cancer doesn’t want you to lose your innate sense of empathy and compassion in the process. And though this may seem easier said than done at first, it’s time to strengthen your boundaries and nurture your individual needs, because it will shine a light on your unique soul path!
