The Full Moon in Aquarius, August 3, 2020
The Full Moon, the magical moment when Sun and Moon are exactly opposite each other, is a moment of completion and is particularly powerful to release physical, mental and emotional blocks.
This Full Moon falls on the 3rd of August 2020, during the period when Mother Earth allows us to share in her abundance.
Therefore, the theme associated with this Full Moon is Abundance and Destination!
With the position of the Full Moon in independent Aquarius and the Sun in proud Leo, our need for personal freedom and independence awakens.
Especially now at this time of imposed restrictions, this need is stronger than ever.
The emphasis of this Full Moon in Aquarius is on individualism.
Everyone with natal their Sun, Moon or ascendant in Aquarius, this effect of this Full Moon will be strongly felt.
This whimsical Full Moon at 11°45′ Aquarius conjunct fixed Star Albali is square to the Ruler of Aquarius, Uranus in Taurus.
This T-square of the Sun and Moon with retrograde Uranus in Taurus brings inner turmoil.
An indeterminate feeling that something is about to happen makes it difficult to calm down.
A strong and almost compulsive need for independence leads to rebellion and recklessness, impulsive reactions and eccentric behavior.
The opposing forces of Sun and Moon create inner tension bringing unexpected changes and special home events, conflicts and external pressures.
Mercury in Cancer opposition to retrograde Saturn in Capricorn during this Full Moon makes these individually focused Uranus changes more challenging and difficult to deal with.
Retrograde Saturn in Capricorn feels limiting within social frameworks.
Mercury opposed Saturn opens the door to serious negotiations, but also leads to negative ideas, criticism, lies, slander and harsh words, delays, frustration, disagreement, fear, bad news, loneliness, sadness or depression.
Negative thinking makes things seem worse than they really are.
Needless to say that this is not a Full Moon to take any risks or make sudden changes.
With this Full Moon, an ill-considered decision can have unintended and chaotic consequences.
Don't make things too complicated. Stay critical and take extra care when making important decisions and business deals.
Make good use of the unexpected changes by taking advantage of exciting new opportunities. Unexpected, unusual and brief encounters open doors, but may result in upheaval at home.
Flexibility, adaptability, a positive attitude, attention to details, patience and understanding are necessary to cope with these erratic cosmic forces and to adapt to changing circumstances while taking advantage of new opportunities for everyone individually and for society as a whole.
Welcome the power of the Moon and her Light as it reflects the Earth and our souls!
Blessed Full Moon
