You are probably making some big, self-assured advancements in your wellness regimen as the sun goes through Leo, the assured, magnetic, and driven fixed fire sign. For instance, you might be attempting a brand-new training technique or setting lofty PR targets that you might not have ever considered a few months ago.
However, as the full moon in Aquarius, a fixed air sign that is Leo’s forward-thinking, humanitarian, and progressive sister sign, approaches, you’ll find it difficult to maintain a balance between concentrating on your objectives and assisting others in realizing theirs. A full moon’s energy can typically be felt for several days before and after it happens, but on Thursday, August 11 at 9:36 p.m. ET/6:36 p.m. PT, this push-pull will reach a fever pitch.
Here’s how to make the most of the Aquarius full moon in August 2022.
FULL MOONS AND ASTROLOGY: WHAT THEY MEAN Here are the fundamentals of a full moon’s astrological significance: The luminous moon illuminates those regions of life when it is at its greatest because it serves as your emotional compass and regulates your intuition and sense of security.
In order to better prepare for the start of a new trip, full moons offer a monthly (and perhaps biweekly) opportunity to consider what’s in your heart, evaluate your closest relationships, including your relationship with yourself, and face some sort of finish line. As a result, full moons can assist you in synchronizing your mind and heart through practices like yoga, meditation, therapy, or anything else that enhances your mental, physical, emotional, or spiritual well-being.
THEMES OF THE AQUARIUS FULL MOON IN AUGUST 2022 RELATED TO WELL-BEING The fixed air sign Aquarius is one of the most forward-thinking, social, humanitarian, group-oriented, and scientific signs of the zodiac. It is represented by the Water Bearer and is ruled by Uranus, who in astrology is responsible for revolt, electricity, abrupt change, and invention. Due to the influence of Uranus, anyone born with their sun, moon, Mercury, Venus, or Mars in Aquarius has a propensity for having bright, paradigm-shifting thoughts pop into their head without warning and is wired to defy convention. Additionally, just like every fixed sign (Leo, Scorpio, Taurus, and Aquarius), they are prone to rigidity and binary thinking. The full moon this month will exhibit all of those characteristics because the Water Bearer is the sign that it belongs to.
While a yearly full moon in Aquarius can be counted on, planetary alignments or the weather, if any, can change from year to year. Saturn, the planet of constraint, boundaries, and limitations as well as dedication, structure, and hard work, will be in conjunction with the moon in 2022. Saturn has been pushing you to make a commitment to thinking about what’s best for your networks, communities, and the world as a whole as it has traveled through Aquarius.
That work now becomes personal as Aquarius snuggles up to the sensitive moon. You might be motivated to team up with a few coworkers and prepare for a 5K that benefits a nonprofit rather than concentrating solely on your own personal fitness routine. Or, you might sign up for a yoga class with your friends to provide a layer of accountability that will make it easier for everyone to stick to their cross-training schedules.
Additionally, this Aquarius full moon is battling rebellious Uranus, who is presently transiting Taurus, a fixed earth sign. When it comes to this planetary collision, the term to keep in mind is restlessness. Sure, sometimes being wired might help you achieve your goals, but in this situation, it can have undesirable effects. Watch out for unpredictable behavior, worrisome thoughts, and difficulty getting adequate sleep (your own or exhibited by those around you). Do your best to intensify any practices that aid in centering yourself.
HOW TO MAKE THE MOST OF THE FULL AQUARIUS MOON IN AUGUST 2022 It wouldn’t be unusual to feel as though your energy and focus are a little scattered right now, given that creative Aquarius is in charge of this month’s full moon, its conjunction to Saturn, which emphasizes hard labor, and its square to Uranus, which throws curveballs. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to feel more in control and benefit from the Aquarius full moon in August.
Find a way to take care of yourself while still standing up for others. Leo is all about embracing your uniqueness, whilst Aquarius is concerned with what’s best for their community. They typically only want to discuss their personal objectives or take the spotlight if doing so will advance the larger good. In a perfect world, you would balance these two points of view. Doing just that during this full moon in Aquarius can entail enrolling in a Pilates class that donates proceeds to a nearby nonprofit, forgoing your usual trek in favor of a beach clean-up, or volunteering at a nearby marathon.
ASSURE YOURSELF OF A STEP-BY-STEP GAME PLAN Although full moons are climax moments rather than the beginnings of a larger project, being emotionally immersed during this time can encourage you to think of a new course of action. Additionally, the impact of Saturn on this full moon in Aquarius will make you more committed to your goals and eager to put in the necessary effort. Therefore, you should enroll in that meditation class or, at long last, contact the physical therapist you were recommended to rather than just wondering or speculating about the future.
FIND PEACE WITHIN YOURSELF This full moon in Aquarius is infused by Uranus with a frenzied energy that may lead to amazing epiphanies but also make you feel like you’re about to leap out of your skin. Because of this, now is the ideal time to engage in any activity that makes you feel more grounded, whether it is deep breathing exercises or a stretch class. It might be even simpler to take advantage of the positive aspects of explosive, game-changing Uranus by finding what works best for you.
THE FULL MOON IN AQUARIUS IS SIGNALED BY ZODIAC, IMPACTING THE MOST You’ll experience this full moon in Aquarius more than most if you were born between January 20 and February 18, under the sign of the Water Bearer, or if any of your personal planets—the sun, moon, Mercury, Venus, or Mars—are in Aquarius. More specifically, if your personal planet is within five degrees of the full moon (19 degrees Aquarius), you may feel more determined to work toward the future and especially focused on a personal culmination point. The intensity of this full moon will also be felt by people whose sun, moon, or other planets were born in Taurus (fixed earth), Scorpio (fixed water), or Leo (fixed fire), three other fixed signs. (Incidentally, your natal chart will give you information about your planetary positions.)
AQUARIUS FULL MOON ASTROLOGICAL IMPLICATIONS Full moons frequently conjure up images of drama, but this time around there is a more sober and logical tone due to the influence of Saturn and the scientific sign Aquarius. The astrological event will also motivate you to serve others rather than simply yourself for a change. Additionally, since Uranus, a crucial planet, will be squaring up with this month’s Aquarius full moon, it will be advisable to keep an open mind and expect the unexpected. And as a result, you’ll be even better equipped to pave the way for the future in a way that deserves praise.
