Your Aquarius Full Moon Horoscope

Considering the upcoming Leo/Aquarius full moon, I keep coming back to this image from the Rider Waite Tarot. This full moon can’t help but call our attention to all the action over in the Leo/Virgo part of sky. The STRENGTH (XIII) card illustrates the combination of Leo and Virgo quite nicely. The young virgin has gently tamed the wild and forceful lion. It’s an image of great care– strength and strength of purpose, in harmony. When reaching into a lion’s mouth, do not hesitate or second guess your actions! This is not a time of timidity, but of discipline and determination. This full moon calls our attention to each person’s unique place in the universe. Your star in the sky. It asks us to balance our bright individual egos with a shared vision of collective purpose. Sun in Leo should be helping us get clear about who we are, what we want, and what we have to share. (Me! Me! Me!) The moon in Aquarius will keep it all in greater perspective. (We! We! We!) The universe has innumerable centers. You’re just one. But an important one. We should feel like we have more than enough energy for anything. Our right actions should feed us. Not exhaust us. Follow the enjoyment of service. Mars, Venus, Mercury, and Saturn are all in Virgo, asking us to consider and create the possibility and meaning of heaven on earth. Not necessarily a religious heaven, but the best possible world for the most possible people. Starts with you. Look around. What needs to be valued and appreciated more deeply? Attend to details and the easily overlooked mundane things with greater care and attention. Where is there room for improvement? Make room. Full moon should make clear the difference between the necessary and the unnecessary. Get excited about throwing things overboard. If you really need it, may it wash upon your ashore again. More future, less past. Last, how can we approach together a better life with confidence, patience, innovation and practical determination? It begins with strength and intention. Virgo and Leo request we make it pure and let it shine.

The full moon in Aquarius (24°21') is on Saturday, August 16 at 2:16 PM PDT. Look up on Friday and/or Saturday night. Say “Hi!” Try to change up your perspective with a little moonlight. Not because we have to, but just because we can. See if you surprise yourself with an unexpected point of view.

Aries: Sitting pretty. Kicking back. That’s how I see you, Aries. Centered and content. Now may be a good time to tend to your fort/nest/cave/studio/dwelling place. Enjoy it. Invite others to join in. Assess all situations and potential for opportunities from a reclining position. Full moon offers plenty of insight about larger purposes, but no action yet. Rest up. Hang out. Grounding, awareness, contented friendly patience. Don’t attract more until you’re certain of what you have and whether there’s any room for more. (Try a shovel?)

Taurus: Let it go, Taurus. Feel the freedom of just letting it all go. How dramatic are the changes you’re willing to make? Not just on the outside. But on the inside too. It involves clearing out the funk. Trust your instinct for beauty. Trust that there is more than enough and you lose nothing in letting things go. Just gain more room for better things. More love. More flow. (Drink lots of water.)

Gemini: Feeling clueless in all your wisdom? It’s possible you’re taking in and processing A LOT of information. The world may seem completely different than it did before. Try to honor the brilliance of those fresh eyes and brand new perspectives. It seems like there have never been more possibilities. More choices. No need to decide anything now. Daydream and discuss. Your friends want to hear all about it. Feel everything out with your words. Your only commitment is to take one step at a time, in any direction. (New shoes?)

Cancer: Armed and dangerous, Cancer. And the mirror doesn’t hate you either. Feel free to indulge that other side of Cancer. Hide out. Solitude is your friend and resource. Should help you get in touch with all you’ve got to work with and those big secret desires that keep the forward momentum interesting. No need to share more than you want too. Not at all. You keep your boundaries. “Yes, please.” Or “No, thank you.” It’s up to you. (Write it out or cut it up.)

Leo: My goal for you this moon, Leo, is grace and balance. If you’re feeling pulled in a few too many directions, keep hold of that sturdy center. Don’t go into denial about anything, rather identify those things which may be working against you and see if you can’t figure out a way to turn them around. Or change course. With maximum feline grace. You get what you give. Give your best with the greatest possible wisdom. Excellent returns on that and benefits all around. (Have a seat.)

Virgo: Somebody likes you. Really likes you. They may not know you fully in all your private, enigmatic details. But what they seem to know appears almost other worldly. Something slightly ancient, weirdly cosmic. They adore what they see and would like to understand the rest. And they are temptingly close to your meticulously high standards. Welcome pleasure and reflection with a precious other. (Maybe with wine?)

Libra: If I could, Libra, this horoscope would reach you with soaring symphonies. You are in a very powerful place. It’s been a long time coming. It’s almost as if you could reach out your hand into the great stirring cosmic soup and pull out exactly what you want. Start with what you need. You’ve had plenty of time to consider that. Try not to over think it. It’s okay to believe in your needs– and receive their fulfillment. (Spell it with neon.)

Scorpio: You seem tougher than ever and more gracious. Nothing’s breaking your stride and you have been incredibly clear in your communication. Trying your best anyway. Time to rethink home, maybe. If it gets messy you have the strength to rise above. Your goals are keeping everything in healthy perspective. Trust your intuition. Allow it great authority. You’re allowed mistakes, but more than likely you’re doing the right thing. For now. Be flexible, but no compromising if it brings you down. (Enjoy wind and high places.)

Sagittarius: Endless possibilities, Sag. It may seem difficult to know where to go from here. If you feel like you’re in a bit of a bind, (Lots of squaring action in Virgo.) now might be a good time to assess your priorities. They should be taking on a new clarity. And until you make some important decisions, you’re not going anywhere. And that is rather unlike you. There’s no rush, although you may find progress in attending to your dreams, the quieter, subtler messages. Affirmations come there. (Sleep on it.)

Capricorn: Peachy keen. Things are good. A little bit of shifting and unexpected surprises, but still quite dreamy. Let’s not burst the bubble. P.S. I miscalculated Jupiter direct last week. Look for that forward momentum to come on in early September. Plan something magical for next month, around the tenth. (Maybe a song? Sing along? Soundtrack?)

Aquarius: You’re distracted by something that no longer serves you. Don’t get stuck on it. With your intelligence you place your hopes and beliefs quite carefully, but... I think if you could just detach a bit and explore some other options by tapping into that quirky, out of the box thinking of yours... something much better may come along. (Look up!)

Pisces: Time to start cultivating your visions of winter. We want you warm, rested, cozy, gently and lovingly supported. What do you need to do now to make that happen? Let’s focus on health. Physical and financial. Consider changing up some habits that maybe aren’t that sustaining. (New coat?)

Again Miss Travelslight you shine a reaffirming light on our astrological journey, your interpretations are honest, calling us out when we need to check ourselves and lend the comforting push, telling us to keep going and that we're on the right path that we'll do just fine just as long as we are open to learning about ourselves and others. Your intro was amazing by the way!
