Astro Alert: Second Aquarius Full Moon Incoming!•
Posted on August 20 2021
On the 22nd, we’ve got the Second Aquarius Full Moon of the year! If July’s Aqua Full Moon brought up heavier feelings around change, community, and belonging, this time lucky Jupiter brings abundance in these areas, making us feel like we’re moving forward- albeit at a slower pace- when it comes to the projects and alliances that reflect our ideals.
This Full Moon is a great time to get together with our soul tribe and to celebrate how far we’ve come. The last degree of Aquarius can also bring unexpected events, circumstances that shake us out of our comfort zone and prompt us to let go of ideas and attachments that no longer serve us.
Aquarius Full Moon: August 22
Aquarius carries a special message for us this year! Two Full Moons- July and August- in this innovative, humanitarian sign show that many projects and alliances are reaching a culminating point in 2021, prompting new insights and supporting us to release ideals and situations that no longer serve us.
More of us are choosing to follow an unconventional career path, to raise our awareness together with our soul tribe, to go off-grid, or to rebel against unfair circumstances. This Full Moon can bring a victory, a celebration, or a breaking point in matters linked to friendships, groups, social justice, freedom, innovation, or dreams for the future.
If July’s Aquarius Second Full Moon has been under the heavy influence of Saturn and Pluto, expansive Jupiter brings a lucky twist in August! Since Jupiter is retrograde, this is a karmic moment that can show the results of our past efforts, so expect good karma for altruistic acts of any kind.
Those of us who have been involved in projects based on innovation or fueled by the intention of helping others can see beautiful results on this Full Moon, while others could find that it’s easier than ever to come together with their soul tribe. We’re gaining more clarity on how our unique skills (Leo) can contribute to the larger puzzle of society (Aquarius) at this time.
Community and celebration are two keywords for the end of August, especially since the Sun is still in feisty Leo. However, this Full Moon also bears the sign of changes that could shake us out of our comfort zone. Unpredictable Uranus is more powerful than usual during his stationing period and the Moon is in the unstable last degree of Aquarius.
Does it sound like a recipe for disaster? In some cases, it might be, especially in unfair situations where balance needs to be restored, but overall, we can expect positive and liberating changes. This is the perfect moment to leave a toxic situation behind, to think outside the box, and to embrace the unknown.
For those of us with strong Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, or Aquarius energy who might have felt like they had to go through fire and water this summer, this Aquarius Full Moon can be a powerful moment of healing and release.
We’re supported to let go of attitudes that no longer serve us- especially judgment, radical opinions, inflexibility, or the illusion of moral superiority- and to take a leap of faith toward the future. The more we accept our mistakes and embrace change, the easier it is to move forward on this Full Moon.
