Full Moon in Aquarius: More Equals Merrier

Full Moon in Aquarius: More Equals Merrier
“We all need each other.”

-- Leo Buscaglia

After enduring July’s heavy-duty drama and daily tension, the jolting electricity of the full Moon in Aquarius on Wednesday, August 1, is a welcome shake-up. Who couldn’t use a break from all of that emotional pressure?

Spending time with your tribe (Aquarius rules our friendships and group alliances) could be the perfect remedy to get you back in touch with your authentic, creative self now. This is not a time for hiding home alone. No matter what you have just endured or are still going through after the July cardinal-cross crucifixion, you can be sure that you’ll get by with a little help from your friends.

During this full Moon, the focus shifts to masculine Air signs, bringing us back into a more mental mode. Aquarius is linked to the Star card in the tarot, which follows the Falling Tower archetype in sequence. Thus, the energy of the Aquarius full Moon is that gift of calm after the storm or the return of peace and hope after crisis and disaster.

Aquarius is a fixed Air sign, offering us the potential of mental clarity, detachment and objectivity. There is of course the danger of going too far with the detached and objective side if we lose touch with our heart. Leo is the balancing sign for Aquarius, and thus love and reason must be wed -- even if they feel polarized at the moment!

“I have a very strong feeling that the opposite of love is not hate -- it's apathy. It's not giving a damn.”

-- Leo Buscaglia

The opposition between the Sun and Moon makes it important to consider the creative role that Leo plays in this polarity. Kindling the childlike wonder and remaining connected to our hearts (or at least setting the intention to return to our hearts) is an important balancing point to this rather heady full Moon. We must also watch out for very rigid opinions or ideas since Aquarius is certainly a stubborn (fixed) energy in the element of Air.

Plus, Mercury is still retrograde in the opposite sign of Leo, creating plenty of potential conversation debacles in spite of our best intentions. Don’t let pride or arrogant mental attitudes interfere with your ability to keep your heart open. Do you want to be right or do you want to be love?

“Only the weak are cruel. Gentleness can only be expected from the strong.”

-- Leo Buscaglia
