On 11/12 August 2022, we have a Full Moon in Aquarius conjunct Saturn and squaring Uranus. Full Moons always bring things to a head or to fruition – depending on how you look at it and what you need at this time. The energy of Aquarius is outside the box, rebellious, innovative and independent therefore any issues that come up at the time of this Full Moon are meant to challenge you to know yourself better and to grow yourself better as well.
Because Full Moons play with our emotions or make us feel more exposed in some way, they will help us to set the lines straight in our lives, but only if we are prepared to be vulnerable, open and able to trust. The long transit of Pluto through Capricorn has been teaching us all about the importance of trust, and particularly the importance of being able to trust in YOURSELF. And so, at the time of this Full Moon, and although it is not being aspected by Pluto in any way, it is important to remember this. At this Full Moon don’t be afraid to express your more vulnerable side, with those that you trust, so that you can clear up any misunderstandings or misinterpretations now and in the future.
This Aquarian Full Moon will be conjunct Saturn which is always a good thing. Saturn being our big teacher and taskmaster doesn’t need any other planets negatively aspecting or harassing him at this time of his journey through Aquarius and especially not when he gets to lend a helping hand to this Full Moon. Aquarian energy encourages us to be who we truly are, and to dance to our own drumbeat however to do this is not easy as so often we are taught or conditioned to conform, behave and dull our bright lights down if they shine too brightly for others. And so, although Aquarian energy encourages us to be our own unique selves, there is fear there, fear of being judged, fear of being rejected or just fear of being different. But if we don’t face what we fear it will always have power over us. Saturn in Aquarius conjunct the Full Moon can give us ideas for the structure, determination and focus we need to be ourselves and to face whatever fears we may carry here so that they no longer inhibit us or hold us back.
Uranus in Taurus however will be squaring off against this Full Moon which means, expect the unexpected. Changes may come swiftly and out of nowhere with this aspect, and as change is often the biggest challenge to Aquarians, these changes may not be what you want or expect them to be, and you may not react well to this. Because it’s the Full Moon in play it may well be that your emotions are erratic and changeable, confusing you and those around you. You may find yourself completely overreacting to something that you feel challenges your core or having to deal with an emotional curveball from the past that pushes all your buttons. So, remember that just as you won’t like to be restricted or forced into anything at this time, neither will those around you, therefore treating others as you yourself wish to be treated would be a good awareness to keep in mind.
The Taurus energy here is reminding us of the importance of material security and financial wellbeing, but to what extent should we value such things? Uranus in Taurus is giving us a 7-year education in how to have faith in the Universe, and in your ability to create your own security and wellbeing. So, the changes you may experience at this time could create restrictions on your financial security, or they could create growth and flow here. Whatever you need to learn will be presented to you. But remember no matter what comes your way, it is teaching you to let go of fear when it comes to money and security and to have complete faith in the fact that you will ALWAYS be looked after. The stubbornness of Taurus means that such learnings will not come easy to anyone who is already overly emotionally invested in their financial security and so you need to understand that what you resist persists. It’s time to get out of your own way, to stop feeling like you need to control every aspect of your security and to find a sense of peace here through faith in yourself.
At the time of this Full Moon, a lot of past memories and experiences may also be brought to the surface so you can let them go and stop allowing these old stories from the past to have power over you. Let go of guilt – it is the power tool of the Ego Self, and let go of blame – life is all about learning, not about who is responsible; and let go of judgement – you are a soul on a journey, and you are NOT always going to get it right, and either is anyone else, and that is OKAY!
You may also find that this Full Moon in Aquarius energy allows you to be more open and to express who you are and what you believe in with more confidence and less fear – this is the best use of this energy. Don’t be afraid to be who you are – the world would be a very boring place if we were all carbon copies of one another. Although you may feel like being the rebel and acting up, you will have a lot more success and happiness at this time if you carefully pick your battles and use your emotional maturity to overcome any obstacles and face up to any challenges at this time. So, be aware of those curveballs and sudden mood swings at this Full Moon and allow yourself to feel these but perhaps control your reactions until you have given yourself the necessary time to absorb and process all that is being presented to you. Full Moon blessings to you all xox
