Sunday, AUGUST 22
The Moon reaches Full at 8:02 AM EDT, shortly before it leaves the sign of Aquarius. This is the second Full Moon in Aquarius this year (the first occurred last month on July 23rd). Today’s Full Moon is in the final degree of the sign, bringing a very full, bright, and perhaps final perspective on a matter. Realizations are full-on. It’s a time of culmination and the promise of fulfillment of what we started around the time of the New Moon. Romance, fertilization, and blossoming feelings or relationships figure strongly.
The Leo Sun is proud and intensely individual–not content with simply being just one of the team. The Aquarius Moon, while individualistic as well, values independence and the team, community, and group spirit. These luminaries oppose one another today, stirring this conflict. Outpours now might seem fresh and new, simply because we haven’t yet rationalized them. In fact, a Full Moon illuminates feelings, attitudes, and circumstances that have been brewing under the surface.
As the second Full Moon in Aquarius this year and occurring at the tail-end of the sign, this is about final events that awaken our feelings, and that might spur us into action. It’s a time of awakening to the need for others or to answer to humanitarian impulses, and in effect, it’s another prompt to recognize these needs and feelings. The Moon leaves Aquarius at 8:43 AM EDT when it moves into layered, compassionate Pisces.
The Sun moves into Virgo this afternoon, where it will transit until September 22nd. Our focus shifts to the pieces of the puzzle–the details of our lives. It’s now time to take care of practical concerns. Attending to the details of daily living can free us from the unnecessary stress that results from “collecting” odds and ends of unfinished business. It’s an ideal cycle to get organized, do detail work, and improve connections and communications on the job. Rediscovering the joy of our work, services, chores, and routines can be in focus in the month ahead.
The void Moon occurs from 8:02 AM EDT, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (an opposition to the Sun), until the Moon enters Pisces at 8:43 AM EDT.
