Mid-month musings.. here we are at the halfway point of August. We talked about this last month, how August would seem/be super-speedy ⚡️.
Isn’t it interesting how time can move so quickly, yet we can seem as if we are not moving at all?! Yes I get it, that is exactly how it feels!
Uranus is making waves (literally, hello hurricanes) as he gets ready to station retrograde on 8/19. In the meantime, he has been slow and shaking things up as his energy is heightened.
With Uranus about to backspin, he will join the other outer planets Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto all retrograde. During this time, we are invited to go inward and digest all that has happened on the personal and collective levels these past several months.
Look to what, where, and even who in your life needs an overhaul. It is likely you have been holding on to something too tightly, perhaps even a belief system that may be antiquated.
With our second Aquarius Full Moon on the horizon, this will be illuminated for you…where you need to let go.
August 22nd 8:01 AM Eastern, we have our Full Moon at 29° of Aquarius.
A Full Moon happens when the Sun is opposite the Moon.
This highlights the polarities (opposing forces) in our lives.
These polarities are of an emotional, physical and spiritual nature. It can be one area or all three, and each Full Moon will feel different based on the sign and planetary aspects surrounding the Moon.
Awareness and emotion reach their peak and are heightened around Full Moons. This is why we feel more edgy and anxious around these times, sometimes not even being able to sleep.
The Moon rules our subconscious, the raw emotions that lurk underneath the surface.
Everything comes to a head under this energy. There is a tug of war between head(Aquarius) and heart (Leo).
The Sun is in the sign of Leo (Fire) while the Moon sits opposite the sky in the sign of Aquarius (Air).
The major planetary aspect to this Full Moon is that it is sitting positively with Jupiter, the planet of abundance and expansion.
This Full Moon will not only show where you need to let go, but more importantly with the positivity of Jupiter, it will also be highlighted where you can grow and this my friends, is beautiful.
The opposite sign of Aquarius is Leo, and as we are at the tail end of Leo season, remember to embody the traits of the Lion and ‘To thy own heart stay true’.
When you are coming from the heart space and from a place of authenticity and courage, even when the road seems rocky, there will always be a feeling of peace that follows.
Remember that we had a Full Moon in Aquarius back on 7/23 at 1° and this one is at 29°….these degrees are extremely important as well as the energy (I go into much more in the above video).
Look back to that Full Moon and to what was illuminated for you/ to you. If only minor, I am sure that something has shifted.
As always, take good care and honor yourself for wherever you are on your journey…we are all doing the best we can.
